I bet a lot of horror stories began as nightmares!

Night terrors are actually classified as a sleep disorder.  Check out these people:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSVwmSzxKtU&feature=youtube_gdata_player

One guy even has a leash on him for when he gets out of bed

I know I had it as a child, one of the worse cases my specialist had ever seen apparently.

My sp episodes don't involve demons, sure I feel hands touching my body but I don't see what it is cuz I'm too scared to turn and see what it is >.< but maybe it's not demons, maybe it's in your mind, I have researched sp and found that people often hallucinate when haveing an episode

If there were such entities during SP and they could induce it on people for whatever reason, there would be no way to prove it with current standards. By default with the limit of the science involve, it will always be label and accepted by the majority as just an hallucination in one's mind.

Of course not to say that it is not all in one's head, but to say an encounter during SP is something more real requires faith and belief given the situation and we all know how that personally shapes our view on the matter.

Everything is classified as a disorder nowadays, but what Is order?
Some people see these things completely sober and aware. Without "proof" they are denied further credence, but it's hard to take pictures of malignancies that occur before you can gain focus.

Some tips on avoid sleep paralysis are: sleep on your side not your back and don't eat rich, spicy, fat, or sugary foods before sleeping.

Some tips on trying to wake up out of sleep paralysis are: wiggle your facial features (such as scrunching up your nose) and wiggling your toes. The most effective way that always seems to work for me is pinching myself.

Even though it seems like you can't move at all, in truth you could move a little bit so when I sometimes when I fall asleep on my back and have sleep paralysis I slowly struggle to move my hand to my arm or side and pinch myself. The pain makes me wake up. I never encountered demons or that stuff when I have sleep paralysis but I do have trouble breathing. It feels like something is pushing on my chest. I never found a way to counter that but after a while when it's unbearable and I'm suffocating I wake up. Hope this advice helped you peps. :tu:

I've avoided sleep paralysis by sleeping on my sides or stomach.
I have this odd superstition of mine that I've gained somewhere that if you sleep on your back you are more exposed to malevolent or other such beings. Ever since then, I've slept apart from such and I've been free from such things. I still have what people may call nightmares, but I feel that it just my mind healing myself of the past, or the flashbacks that are to be expected with ptsd-of which I am healing myself gradually.

I had an ex that used to thrash about in his sleep at a shadowy figure that reoccurred in his dreams.
I told him to sleep on anything but his back and ever since he did, he never saw that shadow again, punched his walls or experience anything but peaceful sleep.

Not all of these things are hallucinations. Some are quite real. I will not say any more. I will give you a link to further your research, instead:

This website doesn't seem trusty. It talks about supernatural things and it's dark and spooky like the ghost websites so that makes it more untrusty. It's also states that people who don't notice the true way of things are ignorant. I don't recommend you guys view this website because it's suspicious. :no:

I am also led to thinking that sleep paralysis could be a direct parallel to modern reports of alien abduction. In folkloric beliefs sleep paralysis is purported to be caused by malignant supernatural entities such 'incubi' and 'succubi' which sit on the chest of the victim. Given the centuries in which these folkloric beliefs regarding sleep paralysis arose was a time when the prevalent religious imagery oft of a demonic character must have impressed heavily upon the subconscious of the general populace it is of no surprise that the sleep paralysis was perceived to be supernatural in origin. Now in modern times sleep paralysis is still likened to a supernatural episode but with the gradual lessening of a religious belief system weighing down on the collective psyche sleep paralysis may be becoming attributed to alien abduction and alien visitation in accordance the zeitgeist of the age.
Not "akin" or "parallel" to alien abduction.

It explains nearly ALL "alien abductions."

Did you know that most "alien abductions" happen(ed) in New York City?

Imagine a person in a high rise.  Does anyone really believe such a thing could occur without witnesses in the city that never sleeps?

Not sure I really believe in night terrors where people hallucinate. If it was in the mind, I would have thought we'd all suffer it and I've never had an episode nor do I know anyone who does. No doubt there's probably a few people who make it up/exaggerate as with anything but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of cases have a more sinister explanation.

that's pretty scary stuff, good thing it went away, but I'm confused.. What if you still get paralyzed when sleeping on your side? This only happened to me once and it scared the heck out of me cause I wasn't expecting sp to kick in while laying on my side, it usually happens while I'm on my back. I think I've been paralyzed while on my stomach once too, and freaked cause I felt a hand on my head and another trying to slip the sheets off, maybe the notion that sp only occurs while sleeping on your back is a misconception

I will have to look into it.
My best answer would be to remain calm and do as csspwns has noted.

I've had so many hypnagogic experiences in my life that I don't even bother reading about stuff like people being abducted by aliens out of their beds. I've even had conversions with these "demons" who looked completely real to me.

The funny thing: I wear glasses. I shouldn't be able to see them at all when I'm in bed!
