Can you help? Seeking Experiences of Sleep Paralysis

Dream Diagnosis: In Sickness and In Health

We have looked in previous posts at how our dreaming subconscious mind may be more in touch with what is going on with our bodies than our conscious waking minds, but I feel this deserves a little more attention.

Sleep Paralysis: A Special Kind of Nightmare

Imagine the feeling:  You have gone to sleep normally enough, but for some reason that you aren't quite sure of, you have woken up.  It is dark, but somehow you can sense a shadowy presence, right there in the room with you.  You want to move but you realise you are paralysed.  The frightening creature seems to …

Nightmares: Part 2

It is quite distressing that often when we have a nightmare, it doesn't occur in isolation, but recurrs with a frightening persistence.  As if having one nightmare wasn't bad enough, but to have them frequently!  It just doesn't seem fair!  But it makes more sense when you realise why you are having these bad dreams.  …
