Sleep Paralysis and Electrical Pulses

Posted on March 27, 2011

I first experienced sleep paralysis a few years ago and found it very scary.

I was aware of electrical pulses, a bit like in the film Ghost when people walk through Patrick Swayze, like that sound. I felt like some thing had entered my body or passed through it, this is usually how my sleep paralysis begins.

This time I went to bed and was aware of my ice skating twirling dream and the fact I could not move. I was awake and it took me ages to be able to call for help. I felt like I could not breathe. My partner calmed me down and I fell right back into deep REM sleep and it happened again.

The third time that night it happened I saw a port hole with the power of a hurricane sucking me in, I decided to blow to counteract it though it was more powerful than me, this is when I returned to normal and was able to move again.

I insisted my partner swap sides of the bed, I had pins and needles in my arms and I forced myself to stay awake as I knew it would happen again if I went straight back to sleep as I would have went back to REM sleep. Incidentally my wrist was bruised in the morning and I have no knowledge of hurting it the day before, though was aware of pain in my arms during the episode.

In the past I have had to force myself to get up as it is the only way to stop repeat episodes that same night, which is difficult as I am so tired.

One time a few years ago, my car was stolen. A few days later my car was still missing and I spent the whole night having episodes of sleep paralysis. Suddenly I was aware of voices discussing smashing up my car, I even recognized two of the voices! I forced myself awake, which took some time as I was paralyzed and went to my window, no one was there and I could no longer hear any thing. The next day the police said they had found my car smashed up and yes by people I knew! (not well, friends of a friend). Can any one explain this?

Also what is with the electrical impulse feelings in the brain, they are not painful yet profound.

    If you have this problem so often and it is so disruptive to you, I would recommend getting a sleep study if you are able to. You could ask your doctor about this. Your sleep would be monitored to see if you have a sleep disorder, and possibly a solution could be recommended. I would be wary of sleep medications, though, since they can often cause more problems than they solve.

    As to the incident with your car, many psychic impulses are received in the alpha and theta states that result from either meditation or sleep – lots of people get psychic information in their dreams, as this is simply a very receptive state of mind.

    If you know how to meditate or are willing to learn, you might be able to begin to realign your own brainwaves and control this state for yourself. Binaural beat CDs such as Hemi-Sync might help as well – Dreamcatcher is great for sleeping.

    Here is a link to a guest post I wrote recently offering some quick and easy suggestions for getting into alpha state outside of sleep. You might find it helpful. Good luck! :)

    This phenomenon is sounding familiar. Like your experience, I was dreaming of dancers spinning, and it may have also been related to something in the physical world, like your car smashed up.
    I was sleeping on my back and dreaming about watching some couples dancing at a dance hall. I started yelling in the dream �wake up , wake up!�
    Perhaps still in the dream, a �man� with reddish brown, hair a little longer than short and wearing a yellow flannel shirt looked up at me. He had been biting me on the chest and his eyes didn�t look right: really pale, kind of glowing.
    But my eyes were definitely opened, and I was awake when I saw him turn and vanish as he walked over to the door. My chest also felt funny for about an hour after this.
    I lit sage and smudged the house. I know this wasn�t a physical person who came in the house, but upon smudging the house, I discovered that the garage door was unlocked at least all night and another door to the house was actually ajar.

    O my gosh.. the same thing happens to my husband…. He gets really freaked out when this happens…. freaks me out, too. But he says he can’t do anything… he is aware or thinks he is aware of whats going on and can’t do anything about it…. I did not realize that this was such a normal occurrence…. Any ideas i can give him??
