False Awakening Loop w/ Sleep Paralysis PLEASE HELP

Postby peaceluv » 12 Jan 2018 16:24

I've been experiencing false awakenings for awhile. Before I would just 'wake up' and go about my normal routine only to wake up for real later to realize it was only a dream. It was a little annoying but didn't bother me that much and rarely happened, usually when I would take a nap or wake up and then fall back asleep in the morning.

But recently I've started to get stuck in a sort of loop and also have sleep paralysis in the dreams...

It usually starts off with me 'waking up' only to end up back in my bed. In the dream I'm not exactly awake, I can feel myself in my bed (I'm still not sure if I'm feeling my actual self or dream self) but I can barely move. It usually happens in a loop of me trying to move, sometimes successfully, but then I end up back in the same position and it just keeps happening over and over. It's very hard to open my eyes in the dream but when I finally do I like jolt myself awake. This was getting to be a bother as I wasn't really ready to wake up yet, especially so suddenly.

I decided to try to just ignore it next time it happens as I can usually tell that I'm dreaming after the original false awakening. So this morning I tried it, once I realized what was happening I told myself it was just a dream and to ignore it and keep sleeping.. but then my body started feeling all weird and tingly and I started moving out of my control eventually even levitating slightly! It was very hard to ignore and felt so real. I got scared and tried to wake up and it took awhile like it usually does but after a little while I finally got my eyes to open.

How do I get more control of the dreams? Is there anyway to stop these from happening without having to wake up? Or at least wake up easier?
