ABDUCTED BY ALIENS... Or..... Sleep Paralysis?
The condition is characterized by being unable to move or speak.

It is often associated with a feeling that there is some sort of presence, a feeling which often arouses fear but is also accompanied by an inability to cry out. The paralysis may last only a few seconds.

Sleep paralysis is a condition that occurs in the state just before dropping off to sleep (the hypnagogic state) or just before fully awakening from sleep (the hypnopompic state).


The paralysis may last only a few seconds.

The description of the symptoms of sleep paralysis is similar to the description many Ghost encounters or alien abductees give in recounting their abduction experiences and also other delusions involving other paranormal or supernatural experiences.

Sleep paralysis is something many people experience once or twice in a lifetime but it is a frequent occurrence of those suffering from narcolepsy.

Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal.
If you believe one set of claims, nearly four million Americans have been abducted by aliens.

This figure has been widely publicized and is often assumed to mean that millions of people have been visited by members of an alien species and, in some cases, physically taken from their beds, cars, or homes to an alien craft or planet.

The question is, Have these people really been abducted?
The alternative is that they simply have had a number of interesting psychological experiences, the most obviously relevant being sleep paralysis.

Alien abduction ALWAYS comes in the family meaning your parents and the parents were abducted.

Sleep paralisis, i have had this many times,(its mostly when your too damn lazy to get up and have a lay in that causes it)

I get unable to move or breathe but i never have the sense of a presence or monster in the room with me, thank god.

The is an easy way out of sleep paralysis, just concentrate on moving your little finger, once its going wiggle it for all its worth and you will start to be able to move the other fingers then the whole hand and arm and so on.

I agree.

I think its a cultural phenomenon.

Its nice to think that either Earth or its human inhabitants have not only attracted the attention of galactic neighbors, but encouraged them to visit.

But frankly, nothing I have seen or heard this year has convinced me otherwise.

Some of those who claim to have been abducted by aliens are probably frauds, some are very stressed, and some are probably suffering from a severe psychiatric disorder, but most seem to be fairly normal people who are especially fantasy prone.

Most do not seem to be money grabbers, using their weird experiences as a chance to get on television or to have movies made of their lives.

In other words, the testimony is often, if not mostly, made by reasonably normal people without known ulterior motives.

If their claims were not so bizarre, it would be indecent to distrust many of them.

Defenders of the reasonableness of belief in alien abductions point to the fact that not all of the stories can be accounted for by confabulation.

However, hypnosis and other suggestive means are often used to access memories of abduction.

Hypnosis is not only an unreliable method of gaining access to accurate memories, remember, that the Betty and Barney Hill story began with Betty "remembered" her abduction during a series of nightmares, which she told Barney about.

The vast majority of humans are fantasy prone, otherwise they would not believe in God, angels, spirits, immortality, devils, ESP, Bigfoot, etc.

A person can function "normally" in a million and one ways and hold the most irrational beliefs imaginable.

What people don't understand is that sleep paralysis is not a figment of the imagination, it actually TAKES US into the transition point between the physical and spiritual... so the things you experience in paralysis are very real and quite possibly aliens.

most people that think they are victims of abduction are really just undergoing the sleep disorder known as sleep paralysis. however, there are people that claim to be abducted while driving a car and being wide awake. (betty and barney hill spring to mind).
