Sleep Paralysis - Focus Sessions

An interesting answer from Lyn over on Focus Sessions. This answer is in relation to what sleep paralysis is, is very close to what I explain to people when I am asked the same question. It basically relates to the astral body integrating back into the physical and from time to time we become conscious while this occurs, and notice the effects it has, as sleep paralysis is a natural state for the body so that we don't move around too much when we are dreaming and astral travelling.

Q. Could you please do a reading on sleeping paralysis? Is there a spiritual cause/meaning behind that? Why is the sense of negative being near to you when you have this sleeping paralysis? Can you use this state to develop your astral travel ability? Thank you very much for sharing your gift with us.
A. I see sleep paralysis as a state of existence where your physical body and rational mind are here in the present, and your subconscious mind is somewhere else and hasn't quite "caught up" to where your physical body is at that moment.  (Almost like you woke up too fast for your deep subconscious to wake up with you). I see when you sleep, you rational mind is quiet and allows your subconscious to wander.  You may be here on this physical plane of earth, you may be having a deep connection to the universal consciousnessness (I see this happens most after meditating a lot), or just wandering and processing information.  Your deep subconscious sort of "disconnects" from you when you sleep.  Occasionally your conscious / rational mind wakens before your subconscious realigns with you, and when you wake, your conscious mind is working but hasn't had a chance to sink back up with the subconscious causing this paralysis feeling.

I don't see as much a spiritual cause or meaning, but rather showing you the gift of being able to explore different things even though your physical body is intact where you left it.  The fear or negativity is caused from the shock (sort of a trauma feel) of what is happening- it is a very unnatural and helpless feeling (panicky).  The negative feelings are manifested within your own mind rather than an external feeling, but nonetheless, very real, and very valid feelings to those experiencing it.

This feeling (or state of being) of a disconnection from your physical body is exactly how you would astral travel.  You can astral project while meditating when you mentally relax yourself and create a situation where your mind sort of "floats" off.  You can also create that situation for your mind when you are about to go to sleep or are asleep (it really is more about the relaxing and tuning out your rational mind that allows your subconscious to exercise to travel).

And that is all I have for this reading.  Thank you.  Narrated reading available on YouTube.

The brain, knowing it cannot survive without the spirit has become suspicious that it is out of the body and it panics and the spirit is drawn immediately back, yanked. The brain is in a state of shock, paralyzed and traumatized due to fear. It maps everything, all the journeys but is protected from the memory, however you state to it many times prior to sleep that it may remain aware of the travels and so it eventually looses the grip it has on fear.
