Yes, sleep paralysis is the best way to induce so called "out-of-body experience" aka "astral projection" (as a one type of lucid dreaming)

I have this experience almost all nights (well, i dont ear footsteeps and stuff), i wake up, trying to move but i cant, my body trembles, i feel like im flying and "force myself into my body" (its hard to explain, you feel light, like floating), 10 seconds later i can move again, its pretty scary but it happens so much times that it becomes less scary, especially after knowing what it is. I never "let myself go" when this happens, i allways force myself to go back and im conscious when this thing happens, i just cant move and allways wake up when this starts.

Well, you can try to turn this floating experience into lucid dream. Try to land on floor and walk out, and have fun exploring places and talking with "people". In case you cannot create dream environment, you can shout: "More visuals!", etc, and believe that this happens. It's purely a dream, nothing harmful at all
