1. What is Sleep Paralysis? How is it one of the most unique experiences?

When you totally lose control over your body, while your body is asleep but mind is awake, this phenomenon is known as sleep paralysis, an intermediate state between your sleep and wakefulness. It is a benign experience in which your body gets paralyzed temporarily. It is an inability to speak or move while waking up from sleep and falling asleep. If it happens while falling asleep , it is called predormital sleep paralysis. If it happens while waking up, it is called postdormital sleep paralysis.


2. Why it isn’t fun!

Sleep paralysis can last for several seconds to minutes. The tricky part about sleep paralysis is that you can feel your body yet remain unable to move it, with your senses and visions occupied with dream-like imaginary things. Reading about it might seem magical, only it is not magical. It is terrific. Because you assume that you are awake, failed attempts to move hands, legs, fingers feel horrible. In worst cases people have assumed witnessing demons or unearthly creatures for real.
