Is your body really paralyzed or is it just a mental block?

Postby lucidinthe sky » 03 Dec 2012 19:13

It's rare for me to experience, but this morning during a WILD attempt, my entire body felt very stiff like it might be paralyzed, but I could move it if I wanted to. Mentally I was very relaxed about it, but I didn't like the feeling which was a major distraction.

I'm wondering if this was sleep paralysis although I could still move.

A long time ago I had it and I couldn't move anything, even when trying. But that time was the first experience of it and I was caught up in absolute fear. I'm wondering whether I just didn't believe I could move.

So is it a real physical condition or just a mental condition?
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus
