I’ve had Sleep Paralysis nearly ever night of my entire life. Though, I’ve also been able to Lucid Dream many times. I’m not scared of it, it gives me what feels like an Adrenaline Rush. I’m an Adrenaline Junkie so I kinda like it.
Though I also Hallucinate during it & some of the things I’ve seen look like they could be right out of a Horror Film. Guess it’s a good thing I’ve always been ‘Weird’ if I had ‘Normal’ I might have just died of fright. When I was a young child I used to think I was in a different realm, like I guess the ‘Spirit’ Realm but that I had to stay close to my body so that I could return home to the ‘Other’ Realm.
I never told my Family though, because they are Christian & I feared that they would tell me I was possessed by Demons & do an Exorcism. That scared me more than the actual experience. They never could brain wash me into being a Puppet of a Cult, I mean Organized Religion. Anyway, I really just don’t think that Sleep Paralysis discriminates against its ‘victims’ Atheist or Theist. ^_^
