Let me first give you guys a wee bit idea about what is sleep paralysis. Well, many researchers believe that sleep paralysis occurs when your brain tells your body that you are in a rapid eye movement (RPI) stage of sleep in which your limbs get temporarily paralysed. According to researchers, two brain chemicals, GABA and glycine are responsible for muscle paralysis.
Your blood pressure rises, heart rate increases and breathing become more irregular. It generally happens during awakening or while you are falling asleep. We don’t have a perfect scientific explanation for this phenomenon right now, although various researches are going on. People often relate it to the supernatural creatures, but many scientists say it might have a neurological origin.
I have also experienced this weird thing once in my lifetime. So, if you are wondering how it’s like or how it feels, I might be able to answer some of your questions. Okay so let’s begin.
It was a dark night, darkness all around, inside, outside, here, there and everywhere. All of the deadly ghosts were arrived to take my soul with them and who knows what else they were planning to do. Girl you need to stop. Show you’re stupid story telling skills somewhere else.
So, where was I? Yeah, the dark night. Okay, now I am gonna stop, before you guys doubt my sanity or consider me a nincompoop. No more beating around the bush, let’s dive into the topic. Honestly, that was strange, to experience something like this was really weird. It was a nightmare.The most horrible dream one can ever have.
I still remember how I felt at that time, every detail of it. It was as if my whole body is paralysed, I was not able to move, as if someone has tied me up so bad, like I was under a trap of something dead. Trust me guys no use of exaggeration. For those of you who haven’t experienced it might have a sense of doubt. That’s fine. You don’t have to believe whatever I say. I am not here to scare you ( maybe I am).
It was like a dead demon has come with not so good intentions and wanted to do something to me. I felt like screaming and shouting but everything turns out to be futile. Nobody was listening to me, no one could hear my loud cries, my cries for help and for taking me out of this trap. I felt like he tightly grabbed both of my hands and was trying to get over me, forcing himself on me.
I felt helpless and wanted to get out of his hold. I cried and cried but no one listened. I was unable to move, as if my body was getting numb, paralised. It seemed like a fight. A fight between illusion and reality , fight between him and me. He was taking my soul away, I was able to sense his dead and evil vibes. I was filled with terror.
I was alone, nobody was there to get me out of this terrible dream which seemed to be so realistic. I don’t know how, but I managed to wake up and felt free and relieved and thanked God. After I woke up, I immediately went to my brother’s room who was busy watching the football match in the middle of night. I felt so happy that I had someone to talk to.
I told my brother the whole story and he looked frightened but I could tell he didn’t believe everything that I said. He was much more interested in his football match rather than listening to his little sister’s scary dreams.
