Type of Spiritual Experience
The sudden onslaught of intense vibrations and loud sounds combined with paralysis can create a massive wave of fear. The instinctive and overpowering feeling of flight or fight seems to explode within and you desperately want the strange vibrations and sounds to stop. The sounds and vibrations are, of course, the classic hallmarks of the vibrational state, and for many the flight-or-fight response is the most difficult issue to deal with.
A description of the experience
William Buhlman – The Secret of the Soul
KEN M., Caseville Michigan
I am a fourteen-year-old male. I want to tell you about "jerk-awake": It does not happen much, but when it does it is like a boom! Then I get scared and fall asleep again. The sleep paralysis is scarier than hell. I can't stand that happening. It happens a lot. I can't move, I can't talk, and I try to yell for someone but I can't talk. The other night I had a panic attack, the first one I have ever had! I was so scared I couldn't get my mind off it. I tried to sleep in my brother's room but then it got worse, so I came to my mom’s room and talked about it and fell asleep.
