In today’s lesson I’ll explain to you what Night Paralysis is and why it seems scary, for those who don’t know what it is and why it happens, but it can also become so useful when you learn to exploit it to your liking.
Night paralysis is first and foremost a paralysis of the body that occurs naturally every time we fall asleep, in fact it is called “nocturnal” paralysis precisely because it is an event that occurs during sleep. Obviously it doesn’t just happen at night, but every single time you fall asleep, so regardless of whether you sleep during the day or at night, in the morning or in the afternoon, the paralysis happens because you can stay still during sleep. In fact, night paralysis is completely natural, as it is the total paralysis of the body that serves precisely to protect you from the movements that you would perform during the hours of sleep. Paralysis allows you first of all not to make sudden movements and not to hurt yourself while you sleep, for example by banging your head or falling off the bed; it also protects you from all the physical movements that you could perform while dreaming, so that thanks to paralysis when, for example, you dream of running, physically you are not really running but you are lying in the “locked” bed, because the body is paralyzed. As soon as the alarm sounds or you wake up spontaneously, the body will “unlock” from the paralysis and you will be able to move freely, just as it happens every morning when you wake up.
When we talk about nocturnal paralysis, we are referring in particular to a phase that can occur in particularly stressful periods of life and / or in the periods in which we are the victim of presences which, with an untrained eye, are not immediately recognizable. It is a phase that can happen just before falling asleep or shortly after waking up, in which the body remains paralyzed for a few seconds, more rarely for a few minutes, even if the mind is completely awake and lucid. The phase of nocturnal paralysis occurs when the body is too tired, so it may happen that shortly before falling asleep – or waking up completely – the body enters paralysis even if the person is awake and can control small movements of the body, such as opening the eyes and move them, albeit with difficulty. Usually awake night paralysis is caused by stress or too much sleep, in fact, even too much tiredness can cause these small problems. Certainly it will have happened to you a few times in your life that you went to bed extremely tired and, even if you were very sleepy, you couldn’t fall asleep; this is because even too much sleep can sometimes cause a short insomnia, in fact sometimes being too tired can cause you an initial difficulty in falling asleep. In some cases, or because of periods when you feel very distressed because you think too much about your personal problems, so in stressful times, it can happen to enter night paralysis just before falling asleep or just before you wake up. During the paralysis, which lasts a few minutes maximum, it happens that you open your eyes and you wake up completely, yet your body does not respond, as if it were blocked, immobile, that does not execute your commands.
Night paralysis for many people is a very distressing phase, because they don’t know what it is. Then they panic, they try to scream, to move strongly, but in truth all this abrupt movement does nothing but worsen the paralysis and even cause physical pain. Night paralysis is a defense of the body, so the more you make sudden movements, the more your body becomes paralyzed, to prevent you from “hurting yourself while you sleep”. If you don’t know what it is, it is normal to be frightened and feel anguished, because you wake up like every morning but, suddenly, you realize that your body is blocked and does not respond to your signs of movement, so it is normal to be frightened because you finish to think of the worst. But there’s nothing to worry about! You have not been paralyzed for life, nor has something bad happened to your body while you were sleeping! But at that moment it is normal to be frightened, because you wake up motionless in your bed that you cannot move anything, if not your eyes and some other small movement, albeit with great difficulty.

Obviously you can learn to get out of paralysis by becoming aware of the movements that would block it more, and of the movements that would instead help to unlock it. Moreover, it is important to know the reason why instead it can be very useful to make the most of the night paralysis.
First, during night paralysis it is natural to try to scream and call for help. This physical effort, however, does nothing but harden the body even more, because according to the defense system you are trying to scream while you sleep; so you are hindered by the same natural defenses of your body. It is essential to understand that paralysis is not dangerous for any reason, you do not risk dying in paralysis, or suffocating, or losing control of your body forever; the paralysis is absolutely natural, just as it happens every night of your whole life, only that you never noticed it because you slept. Even trying to move abruptly to get up or turn your head is likely to worsen the physical blockage, as it is recognized by the body’s natural defense as an attempt to move into sleep, so you are more strongly blocked. If you become aware that paralysis is not absolutely dangerous, but it is completely normal, and that among other things it cannot last forever but only for a few moments, you understand that fussing only makes things worse and that is the last thing should be done. For this reason it is essential to remain relaxed and not to force the neck, back and any part of the body, because this would risk making us feel very strong physical pains. During paralysis it is essential to remain relaxed, because only then will the body understand that there is no reason to enter into defense as there is no danger; if you get upset, the body goes into defense because it feels the danger, so it stiffens and causes pain, but if you relax the body understands that there is no danger and reason to get stuck, so it is easier to get out of paralysis.
Obviously to say it is easy but, when you find yourself paralyzed in bed, it is normal to feel anguish and try to get excited and scream in fear; but in this way you will do nothing but make things worse and experience paralysis in the worst way ever, which you could instead live as a positive opportunity. This is because paralysis, besides being natural, is also a great advantage in being able to perform interesting techniques such as the Astral Journey , being able to exploit it as a springboard that greatly simplifies the experience. So getting comfortable with paralysis is great, as well as being quiet when it happens, even to be able to take advantage of it for the advantages it offers. In fact, during night paralysis it is much easier to be able to perform an oobe , because most of the work has already been done: the body is already paralyzed and you just have to go out! Of course there are other reasons why you end up getting into night paralysis and I’ll explain to you in the next lesson.
In case you happen to get into night paralysis and you have no intention of using it to make an Astral Journey, but rather wish to end the paralysis early, there are some important tips that you should follow.
First, don’t get upset, physically or mentally, but stay calm and relaxed. Breathe calmly, without getting carried away by anxiety and the fear of not being able to breathe, because doing so will make it more difficult for you to do it even if with calm you would be able to breathe normally. So do not breathe with difficulty, but breathe as you always do, calmly, without getting caught up in anguish; the body is blocked so if you try to swell the stomach or chest too much to breathe more deeply you will realize that it is more tiring than it is to breathe normally, so don’t get upset. Instead of trying to scream and waste your energy to perform an action that won’t be useful – as you won’t be able to scream, but you’ll make the block worse! – relax completely and concentrate on breathing prana .

If you breathe prana , you will realize how the paralysis will unblock almost immediately, as you only needed a little relaxation (amplified by the healing energy) to allow you to unlock yourself from paralysis quickly.
It is very important that you do not strain your spine, so do not shake your neck or your back, because trying to force movements of your neck and back during paralysis can also cause you very severe pain in these areas. You have no reason to get pangs while lying comfortably in the bed, so don’t panic but breathe and relax, because from paralysis you go out for sure; you just need to calm down. So don’t force yourself to raise your head or turn your neck, because the neck area is very delicate and if you try hard when you are stiff you can cause yourself pains that will remain even for the whole day or for the following days; so be gentle with your neck, hold it still and do not risk making sudden movements. The same rule applies to the back, so try to keep it low and not raise it upwards with the attempt to get out of bed, because it could lead to a physical discomfort, even painful, but try to keep it as relaxed and resting on the bed .
Having said that, remaining relaxed and calm, the body will be released from paralysis in a very short time, but if you want to learn how to make the most of the night paralysis to make an astral journey, I suggest you read the next articles concerning the topic. In the meantime, you remember to breathe prana when you happen to wake up in paralysis, because it will help you relax your body and mind more easily, which will eventually end paralysis faster.
