There may be times just before
falling asleep or when waking up when you find yourself in a not so pleasant
situation of being completely physically paralysed and unable to move anything
except your eyes. You may also experience a mild to intense vibration inside
your body. During this state know as sleep or waking paralysis you can try to
shout for help whilst being completely helpless. Furthermore you may experience
the nightmare situation where you feel you are and under attack by some sort of
ghost or unknown entity. If you do find yourself in this situation then you have
a few choices. Prevention is best but once it has started you can either stop
the waking paralysis or convert it to a full or partial out of body experience.
Stopping the waking paralysis
To stop the sleep paralysis you can concentrate
all your mind and thoughts on moving your fingers and toes. This will
eventually stop the waking paralysis.
Converting to an OBE
During sleep paralysis it is
possible to lift your etheric or astral limbs or other parts out of the
physical body. It is better if you lift all of yourself out though and there
are hundreds of books and webpages that give you techniques on how to get out
of your body. Put simply you feel yourself being moved out of your physical
body. If you concentrate this will happen and you will find yourself in the
astral realms or in the real-time zone.
Preventing waking paralysis
Healthy sleep pattern: If you change your sleep
patterns and end up trying to sleep when your mind is not tired then paralysis
is more likely to occur.
Catching it before it occurs:
If you feel waking paralysis about
to happen (very deep falling sensation) you can suddenly move your physical
body to prevent it. You may find that when going back to sleep the sensations
start again. At this point it is best to get up and do something physical for
about 10-15 minutes.
Encounters with other beings:
There are many cases where people
have felt pressure on their chest or witnessed a creepy shadow figure at the
end of the bed. Scientists put this down to hallucinations but can this be the case
for all the thousands of people who experience these phenomena? During the
paralytic state the body still feels emotions, pain, and all senses just as in
normal physical life. It would make sense for scientists to try having these
experiences before dismissing this phenomenon.
The truth is the truth regardless of how it is perceived. It is total
ignorance to believe we are the only beings in existence.
Regardless of what it is you can
still protect yourself from these beings or hallucinations. See the article Out of Body combat techniques.
