Lets discuss night paralysis

Since i have been on nf i have been getting some nasty paralysis not blaming it on nf though i think its one of the side effects of messing with dopamine for soo long.
Soo last night i had one it was less worse than the last one because this time i became aware that i was in it and was able to snap out of it make your body feel very tired after i hate it.

What are you talking about bro ?
What is night paralysis ?

I’ll just give my opinion, you can believe it or not; but i remember when i used to get sleep paralysis i used to also have out of body experiences through them and i would see shadow/light figures during episodes. That led me to believe it was something spiritual. You could be getting spiritually attacked. It all depends on your beliefs though like i said this is just my opinion but i’m a pretty smart dude and i analyze stuff a lot and i’ve come to the conclusion that there is a spirit dimension, but it could just be hallucinations like scientists say… Lol

This yeah alone i have had two and thats too much

Well i’m a Christian and you know whatever problems we Christians have are answered through prayer so you might wanna try that. But other non Christian methods are just as simple as don’t sleep on your back or side. For some reason when you face downward the attacks either stop all together or you get very few of them. Idk if this is because you leave yourself open when you are laying upward or what but it’s weird… Also, idk if you were explaining an out body experience that you had but yeah it’s exactly like that… You have complete control to get your spirit out of your body and its like a snap out of your body. Then you float. It sounds weird but if you experience it it is pretty cool. I was never able to control myself out of body though. But from my experience i wouldn’t mess with it… Yeah it may be interesting but any spirit that pins me down and scares me for energy i don’t want to be in contact with. Sometimes you just gotta take the safe route and leave it be all together. In my beliefs those are demon attacks, I once saw a dark spirit and was scared terribly, but then i saw a light spirit right behind me as to say “you’re safe”. I believe it was an angel of pure light. That is one of the reasons i am a Christian.

@nagate I have experienced night paralysis twice but this was before I knew of nofap. It is terrifying and anyone who hasn’t experienced it wouldn’t understand it. I woke up to what sounded like noise, I thought there were intruders in the house. When I tried to investigate, I felt this force holding my body down. I panicked and tried to scream but couldn’t. I tried to move but that was impossible. I thought I was going to die or be killed. I am not convinced about the spiritual connection, but having gone through something like that, it does make you want to say a little prayer before bed.

I heard some people who have this sleep problem often see an old lady in their room.

Lol for real bro i would rather be punched in the mouth if had to choose between the two

I remember my first encounter with sleep paralysis was in October last year. It started off as buzzing noises, then after about a month it seemed every episode escalated quickly. I never had issues with it ever. It wasn’t until I considered my birth parents past. They used to worship satan and do heavy satanic rituals. I felt that because of that there was a generational curse. Though I’m a Christian. I noticed everytime I grew closer to God in prayer and reading my bible some sort of episode would happen and it hindered me in my relationship with God. It went from having extreme nightmares to being awaken in my sleep and feeling something press me down. Sometimes I would have a feeling of something so heavy, as of a heavy disgusted feeling I would just run out of my room and cry to my mom so we can pray. I eventually prayed over it by myself to God, and during the next episode I remembering being aware of what was happening and started rebuking it in the name of Jesus and it went away. Others would seem skeptic, but that is one of many reasons I follow my faith and try so heavily to do daily prayer and read my bible. I did find this one website where this woman went on to say in China, sleep paralysis is known as guǐ yā chuáng which literally means “ghost pressing on body.” In Korean culture it is called gawi nulim which means “being pressed down by something scary in a dream". In Thailand it is called Phi Am and believed to be caused by a ghost and can even inflict bruises. In Hmong culture, sleep paralysis is understood to be caused by a nocturnal pressing spirit, dab tsog. Dab tsog attacks “sleepers” by sitting on their chests, sometimes attempting to strangle them. Some believe that dab tsog is responsible for sudden unexpected nocturnal death syndrome (SUNDS). In Vietnamese culture, sleep paralysis is called ma đè, meaning “held down by a ghost,” or bóng đè, meaning “held down by a shadow.” The list goes on, but I personally believe it is spiritual. I would suggest if you are having problems to rebuke it in the name of Jesus. Or do as others would recommend. One thing I did was move my fingertips and eventually I would wake up. That was one thing that helped me before I took it to God. I’m not shoving any religion by the way just sharing what helped me. Do what suits you and I hope you find a way out of this whether that be with spiritual help or the help of others :revolving_hearts:

Well said. Last night i prayed before i went to sleep also it seems to me when one is on a path to be a good person this dreams happen its like a test. Also people do not realise porn is filled with soo many demons/spirit to the point where we should not even touch it i believe its one of the reasons. I wish you the best on your nf journey Brother.

You are very lucky to have those because i remember i had these type of dreams only in my childhood.
Nowadays its all fucked up my body and brain are hijacked by sleeping pills and masturbation.
But i am also hopeful that one day i shall also experience those old magical/healing dreams :joy:

@anon66785751 you have no idea what you are wishing for :joy::joy::joy: but if they are healing dreams then i think its cool but really they are fricking hardcore
