Sleep paralysis

Postby Navedlaw » 19 Mar 2012 15:01

Hello,

Yesterday I tried to enter lucid dreaming for the first time, so I tried entering sleep paralysis. That afternoon I played a hockey match, so my musclse were tired, which (I think) made the process go faster.

So I went to bed, laid down my arms next to my body, closed my eyes, and started listening to my body. After 1 or 2 minutes I felt my arms and legs shaking, sending messages to my brain, but I ignored them. Soon after that I stopped feeling my limbs, and I thought I made it.

Then suddenly I started hearing a very loud buzzing sound, (something like the tripod from War of the Worlds makes). It creeped me out, as it kept on getting louder and louder. After a couple of seconds I wanted to stop, but I couldnt move my arms or legs. Fortunate for me I could still move my fingers, and soon after that the feeling in my arms returned, and the sound stopped.

That freaked me out, so after that I lied down on my side, and went to sleep like any other night. But now I'm wondering, is this the way to achieve lucid dreaming? All I had was a terrifying experience.

That just sounds exiting to me...personally I do not have any technique it just happens that sometime during a dream i seem to realize that ...hey this is just too farfetched to be real…and voila I’m Conscious in a dream ....if i were you I would welcome that Tripod and see how loud it can really get!!

Well. At the moment I wasnt thinking about that, but I'm a daredevil so probably I can't resist the fever to do it again. Awake I've done everything from parachute jumping to being chased by police dogs (in protective suit, ofc), and thats not exciting enough for me, but somehow this terrifies me haha.

well, if you're into the fear, i'd say go for gusto. the whole sleep paralysis/hypnagogic hallucinations thing is actually the only reason i'm worried about lucid dreaming at all.
