Re: Sleep Paralysis Advice

Clownfish, I used to get this a lot too. Here's what I found that works. If you are aware of when this is happening, which it's sounds like you are, wiggle your fingers or toes, it does help wake you up. The pressure on your chest is your astrical body trying to get back into your physical body.

A couple of times when I was aware of this happening I did an experiment, I knew this was going on again, I shut my eyes, got up out of bed in my head and walked through a door into the other room, how weird is that! I also went on a flying trip as this is my favorite type of dream. When I wanted to wake up I wiggle my toes or fingers, it does wake me up and those are the only parts of my body I could move when this happens. Hope it works for you. Diana
