Sleep paralysis is VERY close to being a lucid dream, you just need to NOT move for long enough and you'll enter the dream. When you're laying there paralyzed and can't move or do anything, don't freak out just get ready to have a lucid dream! In order to get there, you need to fight the 'rollover urge' which causes you to DELAY sleep paralysis onset and stay awake for longer.

What is Lucid Dreaming?
Lucid dreaming (sometimes called astral projection although they're not quite the same) is the ability to become SELF AWARE in your dreams, meaning you can control them. Being able to elevate your consciousness like this is something anyone can learn!
There are also many benefits to lucid dreaming, such as improved sleep, more energy, more confidence, and more restorative sleep. Not to mention the fact you can become more CONSCIOUS and experience the impossible!
Why not?! You're gonna be asleep for a third of your life anyway, let's use that time!

I have done this accidentally with an asmr video, wasn't really that hard for me. You get these weird twitches in your muscles that feel really good. Didn't go into a lucid dream though since i needed sleep that night
It happens to me if im really really sleepy. If i turn the lights on in my room and sleep, i will go into sleep paralysis almost every time. I can even get myself out of it, go back to sleep and go back into the paralysis. Real weird shit. I want to see how long i can stay in it but my mind cant handle it for more than a few seconds. Feels like i died and i know that i died and know i can no longer move or do anything ever again.
I woke up and went to sleep again after 2 hours, then I woke up again and heard my parents coming home and I heard them talking right outside my room. Then I realised that I just couldnt move, I started to panic and tried to scream and move my arms and legs but it was impossible. Then my door got bustdd open and my vision started to vibrate and my eyes moved A LOT. I have never been so scared in my whole life and I saw a black shadow passing through my room. Then I found out I could move my toes og I started moving them like really fast and then I woke up. I wasnt even expecting to have a sleep paralysis and my parents wasnt even home. It felt so real because I felt my toes moving and I was swallowing.
It's hard cuz my instinct is to force myself out of the invisible "barrier" with sheer will the moment i enter sleep paralysis. It takes a lot of self control to stay in it.
My first sleep paralysis was about 10 secs long and i saw this tall black figure right in front of my bed. It didn't move or touch me, it didnt have a face. It just stood there... I tried to yell as loud as i could for my mom who was in the next room but only muffled sounds came out.
I had a few experiences (the most recent being perhaps 10 years ago) that I don't really see discussed much. Perhaps because it's rare? I basically called it "lucid sleepwalking". It was never something I could make happen, and it only happened a total of perhaps 3 times in my entire life, spaced far apart. It was basically what it sounds like - I was asleep, and dreaming, and became lucid. I thought it was just a lucid dream, but it definitely seemed "different". For instance, I could read things and not everything I tried to change would change. Dream imagery was all over the place. Then all of a sudden, I just "woke up", and was standing exactly where I was standing in my dream (i.e., in my home). I basically had a lucid dream while sleepwalking, and my sleepwalking body carried out the movements I was intending to dream about. I'm just glad I didn't try to do anything _real_ dangerous, like running outside and jumping off a cliff in order to fly. I mean, I knew I was dreaming, but did not know I was sleepwalking while it was happening. If I could find some way to induce them in a predictable manner, I might play around with it once in awhile. But to have them just pop up like that's kinda' scary when you realize all the crazy stuff you could accidentally end up doing with your real body that could be harmful to yourself or others, just because you didn't realize your actual body was moving while you're dreaming. Fortunately, I'm not prone to attacking people in my lucid dreams, so I'm quite sure other people would be safe around me if it happened again. But _I_ might not be. It's just the possibility of taking extreme risks simply because I think I'm purely in a dream and couldn't possibly get hurt. Anyway, that's my thought. Any insight into what's going on with that? Like I said, it's very rare, I'm generally not worried about it. But yet, it would only take one unfortunate incident to make a disaster.
Wake up halfway during sleep sit up about 5-10 min lay down on your back relax congratulations you are in sleep paralysis. It happens fast to me, before my head hits the pillow I am in sleep paralysis. Yes that’s right before I can get in a comfortable position. Daytime or nighttime it can happen anytime with practice! When you get good at it you will hear things.
i tried to do this and successfully did, but when i did i saw a creepy shadow figure in my room! i have really bad anxiety and i literally freaked out i see comments of people trying to say try again but i can't i almost had a heart attack
I need some help. So last night I was so still and I didnt even swallow. I ignored the itching urge and moving urge it even felt like I had pins and needles in my forearms and backs of my hands but no movement and after a while i felt like I started to see a floating eye but it wasnt an eyeball it was more like an Egyptian drawing of an eye and there was a very subtle flashing of colors. That's were I panicked I had no idea how long it had been and I felt like my eyelids were spasming out as if they were being pried open and i was struggling to keep them closed. Then they opened ever so slightly and I felt like I stopped drifting off and the images were gone. I dont think I moved but I felt close to dream or sleep state. Then I tried again but just ended up falling asleep for real. Please help thanks.
I hope this comment gets read and I can get advice,
I set my alarm for 6 hours after I go to bed, then I wake up and do the stuff they tell me, repeat words, then focus on images, etc... I don't wall asleep, infact I feel wide awake all of a sudden. I really don't get this please help. I sat there for about 2 hours awake in my bed WITH NO URGES TO TURN OVER, that was the weird part. Help me
firstly when you wake up after 6 hours, turn over so you are laying on your back with your eyes closed and completely relax, DO NOT MOVE, DO NOT SIT UP, DO NOT YAWN, DO NOT SWALLOW, stay completely still, staying completely still will feel unnatural but just go with it. After about 5 minutes you may start to feel ticklish or an urge to roll over, obviously ignore them. about 5 minutes later you may feel as if your limbs are weightless, then you will probably feel a heaviness on your chest(this is the furthest I have gotten as of writing this). Make sure to not panic when you feel the pressure on your chest as it will be difficult to breathe, just stay relaxed as nothing bad will happen. hopefully now thoughts and images will come and go into your head, let them flow freely and then after a while a dream will commence and you will be in control.
I havent had a lucid dream where I can control stuff yet but I am going to keep trying, please reply if you find anything that helps you become lucid. Good luck.
Just need to point this out, the scary demons you see when you enter sleep paralysis aren’t hallucinations. They are negative entities on the astral plane, waiting for you to move your soul out of your body so they can suck on your energy. But unless you are into astral projection, then this doesn’t matter
PlasmaWolf_YT really?? I get like freking 3-5 sp dayly maybe 5 times a week or more i try to enter lucid but the fucking demons and noise cause my ass to wake up i try to relax and say its not real but i always fail help meh !!
I have noticed something really cool specifically about point #2 in this video. Sometimes, when im deeply relaxed my arm or leg will spasm and its the body testing to see whether you will respond to it. If you do, you wont enter SP. You can sometimes notice it if you are next to someone else sleeping and it happens to them. I use it as motivation as it shows me that im almost there xD Thats just their body testing if they are asleep. Fascinating stuff....
There's this one time where I saw this "demon. I shared a room with my brother and it was a big room. I'm in the corner and I open my eyes and see him walking around but I look beside me and my vision goes as if I was fainting but not quite. I couldn't move. Looked to my right and there was this monstrosity my brain created. Looked like a straight up windigo. Sitting in fetal position but he's so big he's watching over me. He stands up and leans over me and stared into my eyes and I couldn't see its eyes. Like a shadow. Keep in mind my brother is still in the room walking around. I'm actually seeing him. And I start panicking and yelling for my brother to like hit me or something. With my mouth closed so all mumbled which I can't open. My brother walks up to me and passes through the demon and slaps me and told me it sounded like I was having a stroke.
Patrik_208 Hajduk true shit ive had sp for 6 years and just knew about how u can get lucid dreams from sp its so cool but it's fucking scary i don't usually get scared like i used to bfore but i can fucking concertante because of them
I feel extremely painful vibrations in my spine that radiate through my entire body that last for what seems like hours during sleep paralysis. Any ideas on how to avoid such things? As well as voices screams and extremely unbelievably loud noises. Very satanic imagery and chants also occur regularly.
So I tried. First 5-10 minutes weren't much comfortable and from 10-30 minutes it was horrible. My throat and tongue got so dry I barely could breathe and my eyes slowly but noticeably spontaneously opened so they were dry too and I couldnt see anything. Everything was incredibly hard and unbearable but I didnt give up. Maybe between 35-40 minutes it got better, I used to that pain but still no halucinations. Then, after 55-60 minutes of not doing nothing it was bad again so I gave up. I slowly raised my left hand, then right, then legs, rolled to my favorite position and then normally fell asleep. I didnt get aby halucinations or lucid dreams but that feeling in my limbs after I gave up was pretty weird. They were (if I could say it like that) half paralysed so I think in future days I'm gonna try it again.
PS: I'm sorry for my bad english
Hi, i tried to enter SP and i can control the roll over signal and after a while i can't feel one of my arms like it goes completely numb. I don't see any shapes or colors and i often stay there for 30 minutes or more. I usually get a extremely uncomfortable sensation to scrack my nose but i can resist it. After i wake up i can't move my arm for about 30 seconds... it's a wierd feeling. Any tips that can help me to enter SP?
My thoughts exactly. Lucid dreaming is fine. Going thru sleep paralysis to get there is not for me...Loud buzzing noises, and its really hard to wake up once you're there. Its like the urge to go to sleep when you're tired = scale 1-100 would be 1. Sleep paralysis is like 100. Some pray, some have other techniques, those who brave it to enter LD are more brave then I.
This is kinda irrelevant, but once when I was on the edge of sleep paralysis, for some damn reason, the Crazy Frog song popped into my head, and it was only in my head until I clearly heard the "ding ding" in my ear like it was in my room. It was so bizarre that I actually woke up lmao.
So that‘s what I saw at my first attempt to do a WILD. Ich was overwhelmed by blackness and saw this demon figure cominc towards me and then I opened my eyes in fear🤦♂️. Today will be my third try, maybe I‘ll manage to induce sleep paralysis with the help of this video😁👍
Is the reason why I don't lucid dream every night apart from once a week because most days I roll over or swallow when I'm about to enter sleep
paralysis however on the night that i do lucid dream I have unknowingly resisted the urge to move?
Last night i think l has SP, there was someone who pointed a finger at the right side of my stomach, it hurt so muchhh, i started to move my legs,so l could get up and fight this person but it was holding my down and causing pain, when l woke up (after 5sec l guess) l realised there wasn't anybody and l hadn't moved my legs at all... Please sb explain what l was going through...
I need help guys. I’ve been trying for literally months. I now am able to stay in bed completely relaxed and not move a single muscle for legit hours and fucking nothing. It’s getting frustrating. I spend sooo much time completely relax and I get urged to roll over and everything and I don’t do anything but nothing happens EVER someone help why can’t I do this I have been watching literally every single video there is and doing everything right
I seem to be entering sp very well and i can easily resist the urge to roll over and such but im literally in sp for 20 minutes after i succeed it and i dont seem to be able to get into my own lucid dream or in any dream
I've done it more as a child teen never knew what it was.. until late 20s early 30s now I want it to happen and I think I'm over thinking and nothing .. I always when I do get into it I feel vibrations and sence someone in room... but when I go to get up to astral I wake up... blahhh
You not experienced with sleep paralysis if all you can do is see them! When you get good at it you will hear things, and you can see more then 1 when experiencing sleep paralysis. But before you try to get good doing this need to learn how to get out of sleep paralysis fast! 3 seconds or less! I can do it instantly! This is because they will touch you or move you to get you to look at them! Then keep eyes open when you don’t see demons imagine there’s a rope in the front of you dangling from the ceiling. Try to grab it but don’t use the muscles you would use to wake yourself! Must be calm and not afraid you can feel yourself move but your body doesn’t😁
For all those who suffer spasms at night, usually for me at least and from what I've googled it tends to be from lack of sleep or an unstable sleep schedule. Go to sleep at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every day. Sleeping in actually makes it worse.
My SP sometime causes me to have intense tickling sensations when my muscles literally twitch at and causes me to ither wake up, have to stop SP or end up stuck in SP with those annoying sensations. Are those vibrations?
