Reversed dying

Postby crazyguitarking » 25 Jun 2014 21:18

Hello pals

I had the weirdest awakening EVER today.
I slept during the day for a few hours because I have a lot of sleep to catch up and so I slept.
First I had one of my regular dreams and later when I "woke up" I actually entered a second dream within the dream (something I often have). And weirdly enough I realised I was dreaming immediately when I saw my laptop was broken in two but still worked. Normally when things are broken or people are dead I start to panic because I'm not aware it's a dream, but this time I actually realised I was dreaming though within my dream I totally forgot what a lucid dream was.

Because I forgot what a lucid dream was I wasn't thinking of controlling everything the way I wanted I did it a bit but just barely. I just let the story play without intervention of me wanting to control my dream even though I was aware of dreaming (weird I would always like to shape my dream the way I want).

So the most important part of this dream is the actual awakening. The dream I described is a quite common dream for me but the way I woke up was... kinda scary actually.

I'll start right here: So because I didn't have a lot of strenght to control my dream because even in my dream in my dream I was exhausted I just said to myself "ah well I might as well wake up it's late already I still have some stuff to do". Even though I had no idea how to wake up from such a deep sleep I just did, don't ask me how, I just did, my eyes just went open... with a blurry view. BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY NOT A THIRD DREAM, it was real life I actually saw my room.

BUT BUT BUT. Now I haven't told you anything weird yet! I saw my room but did I feel anything? No. Did I hear anything? NO. I just saw. Even my neck was paralysed, I couldn't but my neck straight (it was bent), I just didn't had the ability to do anything but watch. BUT I COULD SPEAK!

So I spoke and I even yelled a bit and YES! I did hear it like I had very efficient headphones or ear muters or isolators. I heard my voice like it was miles away, why did I call this post inverted dying? Well I got told that when you die you first stop to hear and afterwards stop to see so I thought this is the inversion.

First I started seeing then I started hearing then I started feeling and afterwards I started to be able to move again.

Pretty interesting experience in my opinion, wondering what this means though.

Thanks to the readers share your opinion for sure!

Sounds like because you forced yourself awake, your body was still in sleep paralysis. I think you experienced the body slowly allowing you to move again.

I agree with torakrubik, you probably just woke up in the middle of sleep paralysis and were having auditory hallucinations. Sometimes it can be confusing as to whether something is a false awakening or sleep paralysis. Yesterday morning I woke up (I think) and everything was blurry. I didn't feel paralyzed, but I wasn't moving. My eye started twitching and there was something on top of my door that was green and had a bunch of legs (reminded me of an elephant for some reason) and the legs were moving wildly. It was sort of scary. I switched from one eye to the other (by winking with my left eyelid) and everything was fine, and then I go back to my twitchy eyeball and there the elephant is again. Finally my eyes stopped weirding out and everything was back to normal. I never woke up again, so I don't think it was a false awakening, and I didn't feel paralyzed, so I don't think it was sleep paralysis. Maybe just a hallucination? I'm not sure.
