      Frightening paralysis

      "With time may you notice mild vibrations and that your body becomes paralyzed. At that point will you notice that you no longer have any problem concentrating, everything becomes clear. "

      I really need someone experienced to tell what the hell this is...and why it scares the crap out of me. Ever since i was a kid...by concentrating on running down a hallway and slamming a door...by repeating this action and concentrating on the sound of the slamming door behind me...i am able to enter a paralyzed state of being... it's like my body is asleep...and i can't move...but my eyes are open and i am fully awake. This totally scares the crap out of me...and sometimes upon repeating the action purposely...i cannot stop it from happening when trying to fall into actual sleep. I can tell when it is going to happen as i get a certain "anxious" feeling in my chest...before falling into this state...and when it happens there is almost a painful sensation in my head at the exact moment of transition....like a "snap". Once when it happened...all i could see was green...and i somehow realized that i was laying on my living room floor face down on the green carpet...but again...i was afraid and i couldn't move...but i was fully concious and aware.... can someone please tell me what this is...why it hurts...and possibly if there is any positive consequence to forcing this to happen. It is literally like my body is fully paralyzed...i can't move...but i can see my room...and it's as if i am awake but something is really scarey...like an imposed vulnerablilty or something...i can make this happen easily....but i'm afraid to, because of the sense of helplessness in this state...and the snap in my brain when it happens....What is this? I am very interested in lucid dreaming as i've had quite a few......but i need to resolve this...and in fact...i don't believe this has anything to do with dreaming at all...but is something very different.


      Thank you

      We assume you get afraid during sleep paralysis because you are *trapped*. It's basically like being in a half-asleep half-awake state. The snap in your brain might be synaptic firing, basically your brain snapping back into awareness.

      Thanks for your input man...it definitely could be a feeling of being trapped and almost a feeling of being vulnerable as my body is totally paralyzed...it's really weird...i would like as much feedback on this as possible...especially from any people out there with "alot" of experience with these types of things....i'm very interested and excited about lucid dreaming....as i've had a few in the past...it's great to be able to control your dreams... But i'm alot more concerned about resolving the unknown state of being...that i described above...this is not a lucid dream...it's not a dream at all...i don't know what the hell it is?

      Thank you all...

      You can probably go directly into a WILD from this. At least that's what I understand. Some would say you can OBE directly from this state aswell. It probably just scares you because you feel vulnerable, so being able to have some fun through WILD should get rid of this fear. To WILD from this state you probably just have to will yourself to shift into a dream with full lucidity. My understanding is that WILD is alot cooler than DILD.

      Does this happen when you willingly make it happen before going to sleep, or can you, like now, think about it and make it happen?

      If it only happens when you are trying to go to sleep then it is just sleep paralysis. You will obviously feel vulnerable, as it doesn't feel normal to be unable to move. But try to go with it, relax, embrace the paralysis. Nothing will hurt you, and you know from experience you will eventually regain movement. I suggest once you achieve paralysis you try a WILD(for more info on WILD visit our tutorials). That way you can take advantage of them.

      You shouldn't be afraid, it is all in how you look at it, but if you know that it happens to several people and there are no adverse consequences, then you have nothing to fear...

      Thank you for your patient and mature response. There has been evidence suggesting that sleep paralysis can be a precursor to so called "out of body experiences..." and yes i can make it happen at will...i was just really afraid to...cause it "hurts" kinda...and it's scarey...especially if you don't know anything about it. I made a mistake and posted in "general discussion" as well...i found a detailed case study on the subject and posted a little peice of it for anyone else that may need help understanding this....

      Again...thank you

      Don't worry, we're here to help. All the advice I can give is that you learn as much as possible about it, in order to loose this unnatural fear you have towards it. It is a fact we fear what we don't know, and, after you learn more about it, you we see there is no reason to fear it...

      Good luck and let us know how that goes...

      you could look at this as a curse or a gift. That's an incredible ability you have.

      I can make myself go paralyzed when I'm sleeping, by realizing im dreaming... but I never have an OBE... It does scare me, I feel like I'm dying or something.
