sleep paralysis?

Postby Sander » 06 Mar 2013 16:56

i think i might have experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. It's weird really, because the last thing i remember was turning from my side to sleep on my back and then the sensations kicked in shortly after. I heard a very loud buzzing/whistling and a sound i can only describe as rumbling. I felt a pressure on my chest and even my face. it felt as if the corners of my mouth were being pulled down. I wanted to check by moving a finger (not moving too much so i won't wake up).. it moved. Yet the sensations kept coming and going... intesifying and weakening... this went on for about 20-30 seconds i think and then it stopped. I had hypnagogia aswell. I really tried to vizualize a dream scene but this sensation was so overwhelming that i really had a hard time focusing on vizualizing, ultimately failing to do so...

was this sleep paralysis?

You say you could move a finger so this could be different. Alot of people recall a similar experience when entering OBE's so you could maybe check to see what it was using that.

That doesnt sound like sleep paralyses. I commented more on your experience in the beginners thread.

You may of been close to having an OBE.

I have experienced the same things( the vibrations type thing), except the hypnagogia images( they never come).
