Dear Readers! I woke Up and Couldn't Move


This is a personal experience, and I would like to share for my readers to gain more knowledge about what strange things can happen to us while we sleep.

This has happened twice to me and the second time was more shocking than the first, I woke up from sleep at night and was unable to move, I struggled and wondered what was happening, am I dead or what? when I finally was able to move, I got up and fired prayers at those witches and wizards that are trying to play football with my life...

But as a scientist I wouldn't just let it go like that, I decided to do more research on this, going through the internet, through my reliable sources of information and I came up with this..

My main goal of sharing this information is to help us understand ourselves as many of us, would think that it is an attack from the spiritual world and refuse to believe otherwise, well it has happened to me and dear readers, I would never lie to you.

So What Happened to Me?

I experienced sleep paralysis

Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon in which an individual, either during falling asleep or awakening, temporarily experiences an inability to move, speak, or react.

In other words Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious, but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. Of all the weird sensations that one can experience, perhaps there is nothing stranger than not being able to move; more specifically, not being able to move while being consciously aware of one’s surroundings.

What causes sleep paralysis?

It's normal for your muscles to be paralysed at certain times when you're asleep. Sleep paralysis occurs when the mechanism that causes your muscles to relax during sleep temporarily persists after you've woken up.

Sleep paralysis can sometimes be a symptom of narcolepsy. This is a relatively rare sleep disorder, which causes severe disruption to the sleep-wake cycle. An inability to stay awake for more than three or four hours is usually the main symptom.

Other things that increase your risk of getting sleep paralysis include:
  •     sleep deprivation
  •     irregular sleeping patterns
  •     age – it's more common in teenagers and young adults

How to Deal With it

Simply see a doctor will be able to suggest better ways to improve your sleep.


The symptoms of sleep paralysis can often be improved by altering your sleep habits and sleeping environment.

Sleep paralysis often affects people who are sleep deprived, so ensuring you get enough sleep may reduce the number of episodes you have. Most adults need six to eight hours of good quality sleep each night.

Going to bed at roughly the same time each night and getting up at the same time each morning may also help. (Thanks to for this tip)

How does it feel

Well, it feels like you can't simply move, I tried shouting, but nothing came out, Then I started thinking of the The Exorcism of Emily Rose, remember that horror film in which the demon climbed on the girl and she was unable to move or shout and then it entered her body..
