I have gotten sleep paralysis on various occasions since I've been at college, but the one experience I'm going to write about is the one that confuses me the most. I had stayed up all night to do a paper or something, but from 9 to 9:30 in the morning I took a nap on my bed face down. I had my arms above my head with my hands face down.
All of a sudden I felt the sleep paralysis starting, and since I had read about it online a few times by then, I decided to just relax and see if it just ended by itself.
Well by then it felt like I was moving backwards towards the foot of the bed. I could distinctly feel my comforter moving underneath my hands. It was like I was on a treadmill, because even though I was moving backwards, I was actually not moving at all, the bed was moving. Then when it wasn't stopping, I just tried to move my fingers until it finally stopped.
Then I sensed something over my right shoulder but far away in the upper corner of the room, but when I looked there was nothing there.
Can anyone help explain this?
It's probably the weirdest/scariest experience I've had relating to sleep paralysis or OBE.
I think the next time I had something weird like this happen to me I was just floating above my bed near the ceiling, which wasn't scary at all.
Oh yeah, and the first time I ever had something like this happen to me was my freshman year. There was a scary evil man or something else laying next to me in my bed. I saw his face though and it wasn't a human face. But that was a different dorm room, and it was the only time I ever saw something. That first experience could have been a dream, I have no idea.
