Awareness during Sleep Paralysis (ASP) is experienced by an
estimated 10 to 20 per cent of people at some point during life.
ASP can be truly terrifying beyond belief, especially when
accompanied by hallucinations. Some people only experience it
once, other people are plagued with it on a continual basis for

The interesting thing I've noted is that very few people who
experience ASP equate it with UFO abduction and vice versa.

One good book to start with is The Terror That Comes in the
Night by David Hufford. Also, do a google search on 'Awareness
during Sleep Paralysis' and you get tons of hits.

Be assured you are not alone in ASP, and that many people
experience everything from being terrorized by 'things',
'beings', and 'demons'(including rapes and beatings) to making
friends with the things to experiencing incredible lucid dreams.
It's quite the adventure, never knowing what dreamland will hold
when you have ASP.

Many people with ASP have thought they were going crazy and have
gone to see neurologists and priests, both groups of which seem
not to have heard of ASP, although I think it is more well-known

So, is ASP a glitch in the brain that leads to hyper-dreaming,
related somehow to the Sleeping Sickness that followed the Great
Flu of 1918, related to epilepsy, or a gate to another world or

I don't know.

Hope that's intelligent enough fer ya. Sweet dreams!
