Do you want to preserve your Awareness during episodes of Sleep Paralysis while avoiding what terrifies you?
Do you want to experience a Lucid Dream or Out-of-Body Experience?
If so, then you are in the right place.
What do I do?
Your objective is to go 'forward' into the experience as it becomes a lucid dream or Out-of-Body Experience.
How is that possible?
Consider this thought from lucid dream researchers Lynne Levitan and Stephen LaBerge:
So, it seems likely that at least some OBEs arise from the same conditions as [Awareness during] Sleep Paralysis, and that these two terms may actually be naming two aspects of the same phenomenon. [1, 2]
How Do I Initiate a Lucid Dream or Out-of-Body Experience?
One very popular technique is the 'Roll Out' technique. As soon as you notice your sleep paralysis, imagine yourself rolling out of bed.
