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
I just can't believe this! I have suffered from this issue since I was a little girl! I thought I was the only one. The way I get out of this state is to calmly tell myself that it's just a dream, I'm ok and doesn't take long for the spell to end after that. The real key here is to keep calm. Hope this helps you. I know it can be a terrible feeling. Jude
