I've been needing some answers to this for a long time now. As soon as I saw the section for Sleep Paralysis, I immediately thought of an experience I had around 3-4 years ago.

I was napping in my bed before I had to be to work. I probably needed to be there for 5pm or around then. Anyway, I woke up, got out of bed and went to look out my window. Then I looked back at my bed and saw myself still sleeping there on the bed. I just thought "what the heck?!?!!!!!!" Then I found myself trying to wake up again. I then woke up, got out of bed, only to realize it happened again. My body was still on the bed sleeping. I did this SEVERAL times, and it started to get terrifying that I couldn't move a muscle, or wake up at ALL. I started just sitting up in bed and immediately looking down to see if I was REALLY awake or not, and to my horror I was not. I was still there in the same exact position, sleeping in my bed!!!! Not only that, but I would get up out of my body each time and get so scared that I just couldn't get up. I even feared I was somehow in a coma. I mean it was scary. I don't even remember how many times I ended up outside of my body in attempts to REALLY wake up. It was probably around 5-10 times. It was ridiculous and again... scary.

When I FINALLY woke up I remember trying to SCREAM as loud as I could and literally flailing my entire body in a final attempt to successfully wake up because nothing else was working. It worked. I JUMPED out of bed screaming, and was so happy to finally be REALLY awake. It scared me so much. It' hasn't happened to me since. I did have a feeling however that it was some kind of psychic attack on me. i don't know.

Do you have any explanations that might help?
I looked through a few stories and can't find a story quite like mine but I'll keep looking. It was weird, like my will to get up was so strong that I was at least able to leave my body, but something else REALLY strong was preventing my body to move at all. Crazy.
It is frightening...even if a majority of cases have a scientific explanation, it doesn't make it any less terrifying when you are awake...you KNOW you are awake..and yet your body refuses to move.

Again, this is something I think there is more than one explanation for. Let us know if you find anything that sounds like your experience.

Have you read up on astral projection? I am asking because it sounds more like an out of body experience to me (albeit involuntary). When the spirit is absent from the body, it isn't possible to move the physical body.
Actually in my opioin sort of is part sleep paralysis. From my experience.

i had paralysis allooott. and 2 out of body experience.

but in one case of my out of body experience ( ok this is what happened to me). first i got paralysis and i was like "great not this again" and usally i would fight back for control of my body; like trying to move or scream. But this time i was like "fuk it i'm not going to fight back". so the next thing i know i livatated about a foot . not sure if it was my soul or body. but i start looking around my room for a couple of seconds and saw my body lay there(my soul was sitting up). then i rested back down and got full control of my body back.

anyways this event was for sure paralysis and then an out of body experience put together. only happen to me once.

i think paralysis is like mediation because you lose all control and felling of your body and just you mind and soul, which might allow us to release our spiritial soul out of our body.

this is just my thoery on this so don't think "this is why it happens"

So your experience is similar to mine.

Maybe it's both sleep paralysis AND astral projection? You cannot move your body but CAN move your soul.

Because I had NO control over my body. I could not move at all, but I could move my spirit no problem. I had no intention to astral project and I was actually gonna be late for work if I didn't get up so I was freaking out!!!!!! Like I said it scared me so much and I thought I was in a coma so I just kept trying to get my body to wake up.

I get what your saying about on the free from your body but your lose from your soul. I also had no control over my body at all until (my soul) i layed back down to my body. p.s. you try laying down back to your body if it happens again, it might work

of topic but can some what help. will i thought me somethings

DO you itunes? Theres a podcast that sometimes talk about events like this and other stuff. They talk with auther about paralysis in one eposide..
Well let me tell you that I'm new to this and I feel the welcome already!!! Now with this SP, I will get it like every other time when i go to sleep at night with the lights off. There would be different types of events I recall happening to many to name but lest start with a couple of vivid ones: One night, I was went to sleep and in the middle of the night I awoke with paralysis and I seen a few white human figures like moving around. I'm not sure if there where happy or not but I know for sure they were waving at me and one of them touch my big toe. I wanted to give them a thumbs up but you know... I couldn't move lol. Another occansion, where I went to sleep in I woke up the same way and I know there something else there.... But here is the whole twist to it! At the same time there was something inside of me wanting to be release, let go and destroy whatever was in the room at the time! I kept hearing it in my head saying killer, and kill it. I know whatever was in the room was not good at all and whatever was inside me wanted to hurt so badly where I could feel this different and powerful feeling and my body was trying it damnest to move and get up to destroy this thing in the room.

I had a few experience like that. I can promise you that if im in any house or hotel by myself, its gonna happen again and again. I'm trying to figure out is what is this inside of me that wanting to destroy what was whatever was in the room every time I would come across SP in the dead time? Can someone help me out with it???

wow great story.... sorry never heard of this scenirio. White figures thats new, usally they are black. Dou go to church?
probly u have a demon side of u that u have accepted 2 live with u and show, and talk to u in your mind when u dont want it too.
or the white figures are spirital aliens or repitians that are passing by and ur soul hates them because u soul knows more wat u know.

haha as u can see i have no idea. but when ur in sp you can see and feel the spirital side

the only help i can say is sleep for 8 hours every night not enough sleep causes this. please read the other blog to get wat im saying
