Wiggle your toes and smaller muscles, they do not get paralyzed as effectively, soon your larger muscles will become freed an the hallucinations will end. source: personal experience. I saw a minecraft enderman walking at me, then teleport back across the room. It moved in to attack so I ended it.

I used to have sleep paralysis when my anxiety was wicked high a few years back. It eventually stopped. But the **** your mind sees is ****** up.

I've experienced sleep paralysis twice, I can only vaguely remember now since it happened two years ago and I tried really hard to forget about it.
The first time I experienced it I was taking a nap, and I woke up but couldn't move. But I knew something was watching me, just staring at me from the corner of my eye.
The second time was at night and I woke up because I took the covers off of me and wanted them back. I again, could not move. I tried to get my arms to move my legs, I tried to scream, and nothing. This time I didn't open my eyes. I knew something was in there with me and I didn't want to see it; I was afraid of what it would lead

Ok ive done a lot of lucid dreaming and I know this doesn't work. Want to know how?
You have to run checks when you're awake so you learn to differentiate between being awake and dreaming naturally. It takes a long time to do, but eventually once you are in a routine of doing this, you will do it whilst dreaming and all of a sudden 'HOLY **** IM DREAMING FAGFAERVRWDCAEW!!!!!!!!11'
Try counting the number of fingers on each hand whenever you think about lucid dreaming and actively think of whether you are dreaming or not. I recommend anyone to try for as long as they can, because it is one of the best experiences ever, effectively being able to play god with your own mind.

The method that this person is showing is called WILD (wake induced lucid dream). Sleep paralysis is just a side effect. The hallucinations soon turn into your dream world as long as you don't pay attention to them. Plus, the hallucinations you see in your room really depend on how you react to being paralyzed in bed. If you start panicking, you will begin seeing frightening figures. If you are calm then you'll see.... something calm. You're not supposed to open your eyes during sleep paralysis, which is why this person was ill-brained. If I do open my eyes, all I see is a black cat walking across my feet.

There's other ways of lucid dreaming that seem to work better (WILD is directed towards 'advanced' lucid dreamers). The one that seems to work for me is called MILD (mnemonically induced lucid dream) and it doesn't involve experiencing what this person did. All you have to do is while you're in bed falling asleep, think to yourself that you'll have a lucid dream and that the next time you're dreaming you'll realize that you're dreaming. When you dream later that night, you should be walking around in your dream world and then suddenly realize 'hey this isn't real' and there you go.

There's also the NILD, nightmare induced lucid dream. Basically, whenever you have a nightmare you usually have the notion that you're in a nightmare and should wake up. Since you know you're in a nightmare, you can just become lucid and turn it into a regular dream.

I read somewhere that in order to stop the dream paralysis - all ya gotta do is hold your breath

I once had a dream where i could not move, my shoulder was being eaten by a man sized spider, ended up waking up covered in sweat.

I once had a scary ass nightmare. I was sleeping over at my friend's place when I woke up hearing a weird voice, sounding like cymbals crashing together. All it said was: "Toilet." I got really ******* scared and asked it: "Are you Voldemort?" to which it replied "Yes". This scared the crap out of me because, you know, Voldemort is in my friend's house, so I puked on his floor because I was so scared and then couldn't sleep for the rest of the night.

Never had sleep paralysis (touch wood), but lucid dreaming is the absolute bollocks!
The more it happens the more control you have.

Like recently, I've realised I'm asleep, which is terrifying cause ye realise you're prey to the darker recesses of the psyche BUT, I just slap myself repeatedly in the face (in dream) to wake myself up.

Because of this, the thought of a coma truly terrifies though..

But I do this, and I can control them (mostly)

I absolutely love lucid dreaming, it lets me play out things that dont exist in reality as if they are. (I've done a lot of **** since ive been doing this actively for a few years now)

Im not saying your wrong, because your are right, there are very bad nightmares when uoi cant control it, I've had quite a few.

I'm just saying that if you learn to control them, it's a really amazing experience

A few times I've been able to close my eyes and after a while I go into a place that looks real, colours and everything. I know I'm asleep, but it feels as if I'm in control for those few seconds before I drift off completely. Pretty cool **** .

I've been able to lucid dream for as long as I can remember, I don't know how, I just know that I am able to control my dreams and I'm aware of it
#17 - anonymous (09/15/2013) [-]

I fell asleep on our tour bus going through Europe and had something similar happen to me. I was half dreaming that I was scuba diving in Alaska and that I became paralyzed on the way down so my head fell to my chest (which it probably did when the bus moved or something). I was still kind of aware that I was dreaming, so I tried to remain calm....but I couldn't breathe. I eventually came out of paralysis....freakiest thing...

I remember when I tried to lucid dream. OH BOY. I was in a grassy meadow, and was completely aware of EVERYTHING, like, I felt like I knew and saw all. And then I tried to move, oh boy. It's hard to describe what I felt, but imagine feeling like you are moving at every speed imaginable, while not moving at all, seeing everything but nothing, and then, what was worse, I was face down on the couch, so it felt like I was suffocating. Lucid dreams are hell.

I know EXACTLY (I can't express how accurate you described it) how this is like. Let me recount my story for you folks.

I was really tired from a long day at school today (helped move stuff and **** ) and decided that naps would be a great idea. As soon as I fell asleep, I remember seeing a figure of my previous crush. She looked the same but for some reason, I was compelled to run away. When I tried to, it felt like your body was held down with bricks and it wouldn't budge. You can't really open your eyes either so it's really ******* creepy.

tl;dr, it's basically like needing to run away but your body not cooperating.
