“Warning Signs” : The Fifth Virtual Symposium!

“Sleep paralysis” is a phenomenon in which a person, either falling asleep or awakening, temporarily experiences an inability to move, speak or react. It is a transitional state between wakefulness and sleep, characterized by complete muscle atonia (muscle weakness). It is often accompanied by terrifying hallucinations (such as an intruder in the room) to which one is unable to react due to paralysis, and physical experiences (such as strong current running through the upper body).” - Wikipedia

Has anyone experienced sleep paralysis? I do although the occurrences are rare (usually when I am very over-tired). After a few episodes, I discovered that I get a sort of warning signal just before they happen. At the onset of this state, I hear a buzzing sound...and know that I have to wake up (it’s a struggle because the paralysis has already begun). I am also aware that if I ignore this signal, I will be in for a bad experience.

If I am successful and do wake myself, I get up, turn all the lights on and remain awake for the remainder of the night because again, experience has taught me that it will reoccur if I try to go back to sleep. When I have been partially successful, I manage to wake when I hear footsteps coming toward me or the sound of glass breaking.

I have had two extremely terrifying experiences, however; one before I understood that the buzzing was a warning signal and the other when I chose to ignore it. This is something I wrote before I knew there was an actual term for what I was experiencing:

Asleep but awake.
High pitched electrical hum.
Followed by a state of terror.
Footsteps, slowly moving toward me.
I cannot move.
I cannot speak.
I cannot see.
But I can hear and feel.
The small demons laughing.
And crawling onto my bed.
Pinning me down for their master.
Of purest evil.
I can feel his oppressive breath over me.
His minions spread my legs.
Til just before their breaking point.
My hips scream in pain.
They know and laugh.
The searing cock.
Blisters me.
As it forces entry.
My weeping ignored
The underlings
Bite and pinch
In excited frenzy.
I strain for consciousness
For I will surely die
If I do not wake

That's a scary experience... I'm glad it doesn't happen to you often and you have found a way to cope.

I have heard of this phenomenon many years ago....although I have never experienced it... The old folks would call this "the devil riding your back"....explaining all the symptoms you mentioned...

This is a wild phenomenon... hadn't known about it before you posted on it, but it's fascinating. And it may well explain, or at least shed light on, some supernatural experiences people have reported in the past...

To your credit, you've learned to recognize the warning signs, and it sounds as though you're taking charge of the situation -- or at least training your subconscious to take charge of the situation. I wonder if (conscious) meditation would help reduce the frequency of these terrors from infrequent to nonexistent?

Thank you for joining the virtual symposium, and welcome -- looking forward to your continued participation!

I've had similar experiences. I don't remember any noises before or during the experience. I had this happen quite a few times when I was a kid. One night it happened several times though when I finally got up in the morning I wasn't sure if it was all just a dream or if it really happened. It was terrifying not being able to move and feeling like someone was there that I couldn't see. I remember sometimes laying there trying to open my eyes and I couldn't. I've only had the experience a few times since I've been an adult and the last was many years ago.

I have never heard of that phenomonem. it must be scary! I have occasionally had nightmares that are equally frightening and disruptive to sleep

I wish these were only nightmares. Even the worst nightmare I've had is mild compared to these.

It had happened to me all too often. It is surreal when it happens. I have not noticed a warning signal of any kind. I might need to look for that

I have done like you though once I am out of it I turn on the lights and stay up the rest of the night

MyUndoing replies on 2/21/2015 1:01 pm:
I've read that not everyone gets a warning. But some that do have a similar description as mine. And most experience the same terror....that there is an evil presence with them.

I have gotten good at forcing myself awake during an episode. The hard part is not falling back asleep because it happens when I am extremely tired.

I've never felt this- I think- falling asleep or waking, but I have dreamed it. It's terrifying! Always it was some unseen nameless terror, indescribable. It hasn't happened to me in decades...and I don't miss it.

When it first started happening, it made me question my non-belief in supernatural entities (gods, devils, etc). These are nothing like typical nightmares. In fact, as I eventually discovered, they aren't nightmares at all. They are hallucinations.

And it was because of being atheist and unable wrap my head around the idea that I was being attacked by something evil that I finally did some research.
