Astral Catalepsy Or Sleep Paralysis?

In the mid 1930's a man named Sylvan Muldoon first used the term Astral catalepsy.He had been doing astral projection since age 12.In research and study of his own experiences he was able to recall very specific aspects of the out of body experiences.His work was quite helpful for the many people who were enduring this horrible experience now generally called "sleep paralysis."It is common in children but many adults also experience it

Symptoms typically include:
A sensation of being paralyzed
A heavy weight on the chest making breathing difficult
Being unable to cry out or even make a sound
Being touched in a sexual or malicious way by an invisible source
A vibration from within the body or surrounding it
Being pinned down or immobilized by an evil presence
Flashes of or glaring lights
Being bombarded by noises from buzzing,electronic humming,to clamoring voices of many people talking at once
Sincerely believing a vicious entity is sitting on or messing with the bedding intentionally

You can see this is a very unplesant experience.However it is more common than you might think.
Wikipedia gives a physiological run down on the REM stage of sleep which this involves.
It still remains unclear why some have and others do not have this condition.

In many cultures throughout History this has been discussed in folklore.Northern Europeans considered it was caused by abduction of unsuspecting sleepers by witches who took them for long broomstick rides to a distant place.The Japanese thought a gigantic devil would sneak into the bedroom at night and pin the person to the bed with his foot..Newfoundland came up with the legend of The Old Hag who would sit on the chest of the sleeper and wrap her gnarled claw like hands around their neck in attempts to choke them.China envisioned a ghost sitting on the person and assulting them,Interestingly, west Indians considered it yo be a baby ghost jumping up and down on sleeping people's chest.Some Alien abduction reports are also considered to be this sleep paralysis or astral catalepsy occurring.

Some people including some parapsychology researchers do not believe that this actually happens.Others believe that as the spirit attempts to re enter the body something interferes and the body gets the signal that it is dying.Until the two are successfully reunited the symptoms remain.

Wikipedia says"The paralysis can last from several seconds to several minutes "after which the individual may experience panic symptoms and the realization that the distorted perceptions were false".[7] When there is an absence of narcolepsy, sleep paralysis is referred to as isolated sleep paralysis (ISP).[8] "ISP appears to be far more common and recurrent among African Americans than among White Americans or Nigerian Blacks",[9] and is often referred to within African American communities as "the witch riding your back"[10]"

I have experienced sleep paralysis 3 times in my adult life. I had the feeling I was paralyzed...but I was totally aware of where I was. It is a terrible feeling. Very interesting blog.

I used to have this happen a lot as a kid/teen, but only a couple of times since adult. its incredibly frightening. i remember trying to tell my parents, and they thought i was being foolish, til i read about it online somewhere and knew what it was. it still freaks me out, until i realize whats going on and force myself to try and sleep and then i'll come out of it. freaky!
