Sleep Paralysis: The Bizarre Occurrence
What is Sleep Paralysis?
Have you ever gone to sleep like we normally do and when it's time to wake up, you feel paralyzed? Yes! You just experienced SLEEP PARALYSIS.
While some spiritual or religious people believe that it's a sign of the presence of a demonic entity, perhaps an epiphany; scientifically, it has nothing with demons or gothic invisible creatures.
Sleep Paralysis happens when your brain is literally awake but your limbs feel numb and your body refuses to follow the command.
How does it happen?
For those who has never experienced it, you're in for a treat. And the rest of us that have, well, what more can I say, we know how bizarre and scary it could be when it happens.
Sometimes, it happens when we fall into the state of our subconscious mind (which means, we're neither awake nor asleep). Once it kicks in, your central nervous system shuts down, so does reflex actions. You'll try to talk but you won't be able to. You'll feel like you're dead or about to die. But as terrible as it sounds, it's really not a huge deal.
Why does it happen?
I think it happens when you deprive yourself of rest or sleep. So, early to bed, early to rise. Get enough rest and sleep.
