QuoteOne major difference between SP with HHEs and dreams is the relatively high rate of reporting fear during the former.
Quote from: its_all_bad on March 12, 2013, 14:42:17Everyone needs to understand this difference. There is probably nothing we can do in the moment to prevent fear from gripping us initially but it doesn't have to last for more than a few seconds if you understand what's happening. Because SP isn't a dream per se, we are gaining our full awareness while in a dream state but our physical senses are lagging and slowly catching up. That is different from an OOBE or a dream to me.
Quote from: Xanth on March 14, 2013, 21:52:44Actually, there is plenty one can do in order to prevent fear from gripping them.It just needs to be taken care of BEFORE you get into the situation... and it involves becoming comfortable with, knowing and accepting yourself.
Quote from: its_all_bad on March 14, 2013, 23:20:57I understand what you are saying, but I don't believe we can ever completely conquer all of our fear. The attempt to do so strongly suggests that there is a fear of not conquering all fear. But I think grip was too strong of a word. I was just referring to that split second where "flight or fight" kicks in just before our physical senses kick back in fully.
QuoteI have found that if the mantra exercise is not followed and the VS is entered whilst experiencing non-conscious hypnogogic thoughts, the resulting thoughts manifest as hallucinations or an overlapping dream. The hallucinations, because of the quite raw and frightening nature of SP, can sometimes lead many to visualize figures that correlate to the sense of presence i.e. 'the old hag' or ghosts. Following the mantra will keep your mind in the know, so to speak, and result in a more 'clean' and uncluttered experience.

Quote from: Xanth on April 01, 2013, 21:07:21We merged all the SLEEP PARALYSIS posts by Bedeekin into a single thread. To save room on Stickies. lolThe only thing is that they're strewn throughout the current four pages. Perhaps Bedeekin can edit them all into the first post. That's up to him though.
Quote from: Bedeekin on April 02, 2013, 02:37:54I will. I'll get them all into one long post. Or Maybe the original one could have been kept with the induction method and the others just left as non-stickies and linked.
