I went to bed at about 12:15am. I feel asleep on my left side. Normally I only have sleep paralysis
when I am on my back, this is the FIRST time I ever had it while sleeping on my side. I immediately
feel into an SP state (for me it always happens upon falling asleep not waking up). My breathing was
extremely labored as usual. I felt vibrations throughout my body and focused on leaving my body so I
wouldn't be stuck in this state. Suddenly I was out, felt like I was floating but couldn't see a thing.
Finally I was able to see a bit. I didn't have much control over where I was going. I kinda floated down
to what looked like my bed. I could see the bedspread, and like last time, it was alive and moving. The
patterns on the bedspread were basically moving all around.
Then I float over to the wall and look at it. I see the normal white wall, but then these 3D white patterns
started coming out of it. It looked really cool. Reminded me of visuals you would see on mushrooms. I
figured if I turned around I would see the window, so I started to turn and I see the blinds. I head for
them and passed right through the blinds and down to the street below in front of Ralphs. I remember
seeing someone there but then things got hazy. At this point I am back in my bed but still in an SP
state. I wake up slightly and then realize I had woken up, but then suddenly I was back I saw myself
floating down to the floor, this time I didn't wanna be there, I wanted to wake up. This can be
extremely difficult. So I deliberately started making noise, kinda like grunting. And I did it load enough
where I was able to wake myself. At which point I had to sit up in order to become fully awake and not
fall back into that state again. I'm not sure why I freaked out the 2nd time around and wanted to wake
up, I think I was just really tired and just wanted some sound sleep. The whole episode lasted about 20
minutes, when I looked at the clock it was 12:36.

Well I have had sleep paralysis for years, hardly ever have it anymore, which sucks because I actually
enjoy the experience now, it's no longer scary.
Let me preface by saying; after this was over, I immediately went back to sleep, instead of getting up
to document it so I did lose some of it. Anyway I was up from Friday morning at 9am until 1am
Sunday morning. So close to 48 hours. I went to bed knowing I would probably have a sleep paralysis
episode upon falling asleep because I was so sleep deprived (I only have them when I am really tired,
now). What do you know I immediately fell into one. I caught myself paralyzed and having trouble
breathing. I immediately realized what was up, and calmed myself down, leveled out my breathing. I
figured this would be a great time to try to go out of body.
I remember trying to leave my body a few times and being unable to. Then I opened my eyes and
could see the room. I do sleep with a sleep mask on, which makes it all the more interesting. I
remember looking up at the ceiling and seeing this image that was moving. It looked like the shadows
of all these bugs crawling around. At first it freaked me out, but then I reminded myself what was
going on and that they weren't real. Immediately the bugs changed to what looked like leaves, it
reminded me of fall.
Then I remember once again trying to raise up out of my body. I succeeded and felt myself float up
towards the ceiling. Once I got the to ceiling I didn't seem to be able to go through it. I moved over to
the wall, which had some sort of pattern on it, that really isn't there. And moved along to the window. I
was able to move through the window and was on the outside of my building. I looked down towards
the 3rd floor remembering that I knew a neighbor down there, and wondered if I could get into his
place and actually see him sleeping. Something however distracted me and I was suddenly back in my
bed, although still asleep. Throughout this whole experience I would have moments where my
breathing would become short and it was hard to get in air, but I was always able to get past it. That is
the WORST feeling, if it weren't for that SPs would be GREAT!
So I want to try to leave my body once more, and before I do I see lights flashing on my ceiling. They
look like lights a cop car would make. I float up to the ceiling again and then move out the window. I
look down and I am over about 5 police officers who were all standing over someone who seemed to
be injured or dead. This freaked me out, I immediately wanted to wake myself up to see if that was
really going on outside. Upon thinking that I forced myself to wake, and did so immediately. Went over
to the window and nothing was going on. Checked the clock, it had been about 15 minutes since I had
gone to bed. It was quite a lucid and exciting experience, way more then I can describe here. One I
