      Sleep paralysis - advice.

      It may have been posted somewhere else, if so I apologise.
      I am new here - but I have experienced sleep paralysis many times. In average 5/6 times a month. I know what you're thinking.. hectic life or etc. And you're right , but hey, that's off subject.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis

      Anyway, I`ll go straight to the advice since I assume you either know what it is , or read the wiki article.
      My advice to dealing with it is this: calm down. Yes you're awake. Yes, you cannot move at all. Yes you feel a very deep urge to scream, cry, panic - but don't. Have you ever seen Kill Bill? If not , there is a scene where the main character is recovering from a coma and is paralyzed. She just focuses on her big toe. Move that big toe. Nothing else.
      This is my advice to you , and the one I'm always using and calming down.
      I focus on one of my fingers, or toes, and concentrate in making it move. Yes I do feel a presence in the room or hear strange noises, but the finger keeps me focused, regulates my heart rate, and pumps the adrenaline in my thinking process.
      When you get 1 single wiggle - you`re out of it. You`re safe. Laugh about it after. Consider it a big achievement. This can only build confidence for the next time it happens.
      I've reached the point where when I wake up like that, I actually prolong the situation, see how much I last without caving in. Probably not the best idea, but at least I don't have any more problemos with it.

      I've never experienced sleep paralysis. Some of my friends that have though don't mind it at all. I would really like to know what it's like.

      But then you can't WILD

      It's hilarious when you know it's all fake. I mean I opened my eyes and saw a zombie. I wasn't frightened though. Last time I saw a rainbow man with a top hat and cane! It was really interesting.

      'sleep paralysis', true or imagined/pretend, is by no means necessary to WILD, to lucid dream, or to sleep.

      I keep my eyes closed until I feel myself inside the dream.

      I never had old hag yet. Is it just HI like the little floaty colors when your eyes are closed?

      Magic Sounds

      Does anyone get those wonderful auditory hallucinations during SP. I used to get them all the time but now that I use my SP as a means to a WILD there gone.
      SP-~70 WILD-17 WBTB-0 VILD-0

      Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.

      Same here. I used to hear screeching and humming, sometimes echoing laughter. Now there's nothing. It just sounds like I'm underwater or my ears are plugged.

      It also feels like lately I can't fully get into SP. It supposedly starts from your toes and works its way up to your head and it feels like I haven't been able to fully submerge my head into the SP experience. I think that's why the auditory hallucinations have disappeared.

      Do you have to "fully get into SP" for auditory hallucinations to happen? I've had them twice before, but I never really noticed whether or not I was in SP because I didn't want to mess up the WILD I was attempting...

      Once I woke up thinking I was in SP because I couldn't move my arm. Then I looked and my cat was on top of me.
