      Do not be scared of Sleep Paralysis .Learn how to turn it into a lucid dream

      Sleep paralysis is a natural phenomenon that happens to all humans as a body defense mechanism preventing you from acting out your dreams. You don't have to "suffer" from sleep paralysis. Some people (including me sometimes) happen to consciously wake up before their bodies do and thus are aware of sleep paralysis. Your brain still thinks you're sleeping but your conscious is awake and aware and thus it is certainly a terrifying experience to not be able to move. However once you realize how harmless sleep paralysis is you can start to learn how to turn them into lucid dreams.
      If you're scared and fearful during sleep paralysis, naturally you start to experience nightmarish like environment. But it's all in your head. Once you learn to become calm and relaxed, those bad experiences will stop happening.

      Finally you don't need to struggle so much to wake yourself up from sleep paralysis, just relax and learn how to turn them into lucid dreams.
      Also I want to add that if you regularly experience being aware during SP, you have an advantage over other lucid dreamers that do not. That is because you are already aware and your body is asleep! So keep your body asleep and enter the dream world and automatically it's a lucid dream. (Google how to use sleep paralysis for lucid dreaming)

      Being aware in a dream is the steppingstone of lucid dreaming. And being naturally aware during sleep paralysis is not such a bad thing and it's giving you an easy step into lucid dreaming. The only challenge that remains is to overcome the fear of SP.



      If you're interested on how I do it personally: Once I realize I'm awake and aware of sleep paralysis, I relax and just start to imagine myself leaving my body into a dream world that I would imagine. And it almost always works. I just feel like my conscious is leaving my body and flying away. It's usually all dark but then I start to picture atmospheres and then suddenly I'm in a vivid dream world.

      Hope this helps!
