I've heard lots of reports of people experiencing it...
I've heard lots of reports otherwise... including my own direct experiences...

What we do know about it is that it's a malfunction of an otherwise normal function of sleep. It's designed so that we don't act out our dreams. What's happening is that the paralysis we experience every night of our lives is being consciously experienced upon 'waking'.

How do I not experience it? I really don't know. I just don't.

Sleep Paralysis will happen while you're asleep no matter what you do (Unless something is wrong with you). It's something your body does to protect yourself, and your loved one (If you have one).

Of course, sometimes you can have sleep paralysis after you wake up, which is what you are talking about. I don't know how to avoid it, but it's not too hard to get out of. Just move you smaller muscles, such as your toes, first. I've experienced it without lucid dreaming, but mine wasn't so bad. If this ever happens again, just do what I said. It's moving the larger muscles first that causes problems.
