During the last 20 years, I have encountered more and more individuals who claim to have experienced sleep paralysis. WebMD defines Sleep Paralysis as:
Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking.
When you google online, you will find dozens of individuals who write about their experiences with sleep paralysis, with some stating that it passed quickly and uneventfully and others who talk about terrifying experiences that appeared to last for hours.
The medical definition obviously does not cover the latter experience, though it could explain the prior. So what could explain the latter?
Some individuals online have decided that it is demon’s terrorizing them while others think it might be ghosts. Some won’t categorize it though they explain they feel pressure or a presence looming over them.
So is there a definitive answer to the experience? Let me try.
First – sleep paralysis in and of itself is a normal part of the human experience. That state of slowly waking up where your body and mind are out of sync and re-alignment takes a few moments.
This out of sync sensation can take place in other environments as well, such as meditation. This is why the careful meditation leader makes sure individuals have enough time to pull themselves back into their body fully before ending a meditation. The mind, body, and energy of the individual relinks fully and there is no discord, no lack of coordination as a result.
So if it is a part of the normal human system, then why do some people have terrifying experiences?
Demons are not creative. They are only capable of taking what exists currently in the human experience and manipulating or twisting it to suit their own purpose. They do not physically manifest because they don’t need to. All they need to do is monitor you and your differing energetic states and then, when you reach that moment of connection between mind and physical body, interrupt the connection and influence the situation.
They are not physically holding you down, but it feels that way because they are using your own real world experiences to scare you. They are not physically looming over you, but because they are negative energetic beings they surround you with their energy and thus the result is that it feels as if they are looming.
Are the controlling your experience? Absolutely.
Are you powerless? No. YOU can take control of the situation. You can end the moment plus put into place protections for yourself so that you never leave yourself in a position to be manipulated and used in this way again.
How? How can you help yourself and retake control over this aspect of your life?
It is simple, but until you try it for yourself you won’t believe it. Our society today has made such a mockery of everything that is energetic that no one believes in anything energetic. Religions have created environments of disbelief and rejection of everything energetic because it goes against their agenda of control and manipulation. The basis for the majority of spiritual beliefs around the world is the belief in energetic presences of differentiating natures but the major world religions have downsized this as incorrect, evil, and even as nonsense. This way, they are the “authority” that individuals turn to when there are circumstances happening that they cannot explain.
Yet, these same organizations FAIL their believers when these experiences are not simply explained away, when the experiences repeatedly happen even after the priest or minister has done “their thing” and heartily assure the individual that everything is just fine.
This leaves the believer an opening to not only disbelieve everything the religion has taught them, but it also leaves an opening for the detritus and demons that co-exist with us to take root and slowly take over.
So again – what can you do to help yourself?
Simple. You have to HELP yourself by taking the actions I outline below. You cannot expect someone to come in and save you, because the people you are expecting to help you are completely oblivious on how to do it. Don’t call a medium because they may be able to communicate with the Detrimental Energy Beings (DEBs), but 99% of them are just as successible as you are to the DEBSs influence.
And yes – you can do this for yourself. You don’t even have to believe in it 100% for it to be effective, but the more you believe the better you will protect yourself. But that always takes time. What matters first is allowing yourself enough wiggle room to believe that something else exists out there that balances the Darkness with Light and that something will protect you.
The Light Beings who exist around us are here to help, but if you don’t know about them you cannot call upon them. If you “know” but don’t believe they can help you, then you eliminate their ability to help you at all. Light Beings do not force their help onto you, as the Darkness will force everything. Polar opposites.
Remember – when you are lying there frozen, you can still think, control your thoughts, and exert your personal Will Power. You don’t need to move your mouth to do that! This is key to stopping the DEBs every time.
So – this is what you will do.
- Call upon the Beings of Light to assist you.“I call upon the Beings 100% of Light to aid me NOW!”BE SPECIFIC!! Clarify 100% of the Light. Otherwise you leave yourself successible to DEBs pretending they are Light Beings there to help you. As you gain experience with this, you may feel sensations that validate your experience. Light Beings only know UNCONDITIONAL LOVE – that’s the only emotion they can share with humans. DEBs do not possess the ability to Love, so if they pretend to Love you it will not last and you will feel other emotions other than Love.
- “I call upon Archangel Michael, 100% of the Light, to rid my body, my energy, and my space of all DEBs, NOW!”
The Angelics are not what the various world religions would have you think they are – and thus, try to not allow their conditioning to affect you and your ability to call upon them. They are Light Beings and part of their purpose on this Earth Plane is to help humans. Their greater purpose is not important, but just know and remember that they have only unconditional Love for humans, unlike DEBs.
And that is that – those two steps – calling for help and being specific about what you want done in that moment. And that’s the first step – helping yourself when you are afraid and don’t know what is happening. The second step is to keep yourself protected at all times – even when you are about to go to sleep.
SHIELDING AND GROUNDING TECHNIQUE WITH CAMO LAYER
- Take all the time you need to learn this exercise thoroughly, until it becomes an automatic reflex. As you develop skill with this process, you should be able to do it anywhere during anything happening in your life.
- The Lower Tan T’ien represents one’s basic body center and energetic foundation and is located approximately two inches below the navel in the center of the pelvic area. Also known as the Hara.
- Centering in the Lower Tan T’ien helps one shift attention to experiencing the NOW without being distracted by past or future.
- Centering yourself provides the opportunity to feel the energy of calm and peace move throughout and enact change upon you, regardless of what emotional state you were in.
Place yourself in a comfortable sitting position. If you lay down to begin with, you may fall asleep.
Relax and take three slow, deep breaths. Count to 10 for each breath, hold it for at least 3 seconds, and then release the breath through your mouth.
Place your attention at the Lower Tan Tien and center yourself. Allow yourself to place all your attention here and FEEL.
Now, look in front of you, approximately three feet. A column of white, iridescent energy has formed. As you stare at it, you realize it goes deep within the earth and reaches far into the heavens. This column of energy has Archangel Michael’s energy resonance throughout it, strong, protective, and clear. Some people see it as having a blue energy tint.
As you stare at the energy column, it begins to move to your left and slowly will complete a circle around you. As it moves around you counter clockwise, slowly repeat to yourself the following phrase as the column moves to each quarter point (left, back, right, front):
This is the circle that surrounds me
And protects me
And that guides me
And heals me
You may feel a small energetic “snap” when you get done with the last step,
Do the shielding process a minimum of three rotations. Three rotations equals one rep.
Once comfortable with this technique, you should always follow your guidance daily on how many reps you need to do this – note, this will vary from day to day!
Now, you are going to ground.
Shift your attention from the Lower Tan T’ien to your feet. Feel how heavy they are. How solid. How they are part of the earth and hold you here.
Visualize roots flowing out from the bottom of your feet, flowing into the ground. Deeper and deeper until they stop at the perfect depth which you will recognize intuitively. Or maybe you see your feet extending down as a column of light into the earth.
Once your bottom energy has stopped, then shift your attention to your head.
Visualize a column of light growing from your head way up into the air, high above you, up to the top of the Troposphere miles above us. Feel the energy sink into this Christos energy which surrounds this planet and allow yourself to connect deeply.
Now, fill your energy structure with this high vibrational energy. Begin by pulling in the earth mother energy and then once you feel it flowing through you, pull down the Christos energy.
To help you focus on these steps, recite to yourself:
I reach below
I reach above
I pull it all together
And I fill myself with love.
Allow yourself to feel the energy as it moves up into your body and allow yourself the time to move slowly, paying attention to every part of you as the energy enfolds you.
Once you feel both energies flowing through you, focus your attention at the heart chakra. Visualize the energies pooling together and then flowing outwards through all the meridians until you are encased in a web of light.
The combined energy of these two Light Beings will smooth out your energy and level and balance your emotions so you continue to feel calm and at peace.
Ask Archangel Michael to remove any blockages and then to fill place with Light.
Once all the meridians are flowing, the combined energy will fountain from the heart chakras out to your auric layers, moving up and through each layer to smooth and balance with this Love energy.
Once you feel “full”, thank all the Light beings involved with this gift and allow yourself to shift into meditation.
Now, ask the Light to camouflage your outermost layer of shielding so that your energy frequency is “visible” to only with the intent of serving your highest and best good.
These steps may feel awkward and you may feel silly doing them, but I have never encountered anyone who did not find them effective. Even individuals who had never done any form of energy work or meditation were able to protect themselves when they did this exercise.
I know some people have a hard time reading the steps and doing them, so I have posted a recorded Shielding and Grounding Exercise online for you to listen to and follow.
Third – buy some sage and burn it at night before you go to sleep. Waft it all over your room, including closets and under your bed. Sage creates a 24 hour barrier for DEBs, so it minimizes their opportunity to reach you.
No one is going to save you. No one is going to swoop in and rescue you. YOU have to take care of YOURSELF. Do it. Know it. Believe it.
