By reading the comments, it kinda sounds like micro-sleep, maybe. For those who don't know, micro-sleep is sleeping with your eyes open. It used to happen to truck drivers, due to long hours driving. My father said it happened to him, he saw a baby/toddler crawling on the road.

I have sleep paralysis a lot, but I never see any figures. It's still ******* scary, but you just have to calm your nerves and you'll be good. i once had sleep paralysis for 10 seconds and it felt like an eternity. I want to lucid dream, but I can't do it. For those of you who can, you are damn good.

sleep paralysis "happens" to me quite a lot. It is awful. Every time. Sometimes I tell myself that if it happens again (which it will) to withstand it to find out what else can happen. I just can't seem to do it. I know the feeling exactly when it is about to happen, so I can get myself out of it before I go in. But sometimes I can't stop it from happening. The worst was a couple weeks ago I had one and could not for the life of me get out of it and my leg went up in the air and something pulled me down my bed and that's when I finally woke up. haven't done it since but that was the worst experience I ever had with it. I don't recommend trying to have sleep paralysis. but if you want to know how to scare the **** out of yourself, go for it.

oh and it's terribly hard to talk during them too. I usually get out a whimper or a muffly sound for a cry for help. but that is the best I can do.

Alright listen up kiddies, when you achieve halucinatory sleep paralysis, you will hear **** REMAIN STILL keep your eyes close do not attempt to move trust me this is just a stepping stone after a few minutes it will pass and you will be asleep and be lucid You can use this as a stepping stone to learning how to lucid dream much more easily.

I believe that you can hold your breath and startle yourself into waking up, but I'm not sure. Somebody try it for me

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.

This happened to me a few weeks ago and holy **** , it is literally the scariest thing ever. My eyes were wide open but I couldn't move a muscle no matter how hard I was trying, there was a man standing right beside my bed just staring at me, for what felt like hours. If you can help it don't do this it is honestly terrifying

Thank you... For convincing me that I absolutely must try this.

I once had this and I saw something that looked like a large purple furbie with a tiny horn and no ears. All it did was walk across my room and into my closet.

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 used to think I was special but damn so many people lucid dream

Reminds me of a dream I had where I recalled a previous dream I had several weeks prior. So, I remembered a dream within a dream. Then, when I awoke, I wondered if I actually had that prior dream, or if I had just dreamt that I had the memory. Huh.

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

I always sleep on my back and this is quite terrifying, i try sleeping on my side but it just feels like all my organs are falling and squashing to one side.

whenever i get sleep paralysis, i never hallucinate. but because i sleep with my mouth closed, i imagine that i'm suffocating due to me not being able to open my mouth. i'm not sure how long it actually lasts, but it feels like hours of struggling before i have the sense to breathe out of my damn nose.

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...
