One of the most asked questions I see is in regards to Sleep Paralysis (SP). People tend to get stuck at this point.
First, there’s the fear factor – this is a completely self-created aspect of it. The first thing you need to do is to realize that any “scary” thing you’re currently experiencing while in SP is being completely driven by your own mind. So the next thing to do is to ground and center yourself – gain control over your experience. Stay calm and relaxed, perhaps also think about something positive.
Next, realize that when you’re experiencing SP you’re ALREADY projecting. If somebody was to look at your physical body while you’re in sleep paralysis, they would just see you sleeping peacefully – or, depending on what you’re experiencing, it might look like you’re having a nightmare.
Before all this happens, before you even go to sleep (especially is SP is something you experience often), have a goal set in your mind for what you want to achieve during a projection. Then, once you find yourself in SP, ground and center yourself and think of positive things, then shift your focus away from the paralysis part (because, honestly, that’s the most scary part of this) and focus ENTIRELY upon your goal for projecting. It could be something like experiencing a new reality, or perhaps you want to speak with your spirit guides, or view your akashic records. The idea of focusing on this goal is that you’re setting your mind to something BEYOND the paralysis part.
Think about how you do things in this physical reality while you’re awake… say you’re sitting on the couch watching tv and you become thirsty. You don’t think about every small action it takes for you to quench that thirst… you just get up, go to the kitchen and grab something to drink. You’re thinking about the end goal more than anything, your body just makes it happen.
Well the same holds true in your projections too. We can use this knowledge now to get past your sleep paralysis and back to exploring reality. Enjoy!
