A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.

You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations

As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this. 

I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it. 
As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
Hallucinations, the  best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the  hallucinations.
Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D


listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works

reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession

No but really sleep paralysis is fucking terrifying.This is excellent advise I must keep in mind.

Sleep Paralysis is, indeed, fucking terrifying (first-hand experience), so if it happened to you or to anyone you know and there’s a possibility it can happen again, read and share this.

I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW THIS AND OTHERS SHOULD KNOW THIS TOO. This is the very god damn reason I can’t sleep in the fucking dark. I’ve only had it once but that one time was all I needed to erase my long time in therapy and bring me back to step 1. I had no fucking idea what sleep paralysis was and the fact that it gave you hallucinations. So please, if you have debilitating horror triggers, READ THIS. PLEASE DONT SCROLL PAST THIS, YOU MAY NEED THIS.

woah, thanks to this post i actually learned i have sleep paralysis and not lucid dreams… amazing.

My trouble is that I hover between waking and sleep, not aware enough to control what I think and try to do. It usually starts by finding that I can’t speak above a whisper in a dream - often in some life or death situation when I need to (or some humiliating situation where it just feels life or death). When I’m awake, I KNOW that the only time I have this is when I have sleep paralysis, but whenever it actually happens I either fail to remember this, or get more scared becuase this time it’s happening when I’m awake.
Sometimes I’m more aware. I know I’m in my bed, that I have to wake-up, that I have trouble opening my eyes. Sometimes I feel like someone or something is coming and I either need to get away from them, but can’t, or I need to tidy up the house, but I can’t get out of bed. I’m awake enough to know where I am and that I can’t move, sometimes I’m even awake enough to know that I’m asleep and need to wake-up. But the kind of brain power that would enable me to step back and not try to open my eyes, or distance myself sufficiently from the dream to imagine something else?
Nope. Nada. Utterly inaccessible.
I wonder if people who can do this also have lucid dreams? ‘Cause I’ve never had one of those. They sound pretty great, just as these tips sound pretty helpful, if you can follow them. But I can’t.

I am no kind of expert, but I believe I saw something about how that if you are training yourself to lucid dream, sleep paralysis is something that can happen if you do it wrong. I don’t know about vice versa, though

Holy shit, I’ve had this and it’s the scariest thing in the world to be waking up but paralysed. Haven’t had it for a while and never seen hallucinations but being paralysed even briefly as you wake is nightmare enough, it makes me panic. Anyone know what causes it…?

macpye said: Yay! My latest is on the back of my right arm, so taking pics is, er, tricky. XD

Oh cool, I didn’t know you’d added another to your collection! Look forward to seeing it! :D

macpye said: Awesome :D Tattoos look better when healed, and in the flesh, so to speak ;)

I agree! Happy to do a wee show-off session for my Dark Clerk pals.

elvenwhovian:

So many hilarious quotes from 12 in this one :D

macpye said: Oh, neat-oh! Will we be able to get a look at Hogswatch? :D Kind of an “I’ll show you mine, if…”

LOL. Absolutely :)

Meanwhile, in prehistoric Canada…..

No no, you don’t understand, moose really do get that big. Take it from a Canadian. I’ve seen that bullshit in person. Scary as all heck.

I live in Alaska and this exists. Trust me. It exists.

I thought this was one of the optical illusion camera trick thingies. 

I saw one when I was canoeing it was amazing, they are really this huge.:)

They’re like North America’s version of elephants @_____@

((true story, living in the country in Alberta I was late for school on multiple occasions because you do not leave the house when moose are hanging around the car. These guys average to 7 feet tall at the shoulder, that’s not including the antlers, 10 feet long and have an antler span of 6 feet. Average males weigh between 840 -1540 pounds.

You do not fuck with the giant deer. You drive slow at night because if you hit one of these with your car, you will die and it might walk away.

You don’t fuck with deer Hulk.))

Yup, we were headed north for some camp fun, looked out the car window and all I saw were legs.

when i see a moose i reblog a moose

Dude when I visited Canada when I was 17 I was staying at this place called the Keltic Lodge or something like that and they had to close down the pool because moose were hanging around it.

Tattoo is finito! Will look a bit less red in a few weeks of course! I think the tattooist did good. :-)
