Sleep paralysis... Anyone?
So, two nights ago, I woke up, and I was awake, but I couldn't move at all. Somewhere, deep in my mind, I knew it was sleep paralysis. I wanted to scream and I remember, I opened my mouth, but I just couldn't. I have trouble with bad, lucid, vivid dreams all of my life, I blame my planets in 8th house for that, and 12th too. Is it connected somehow with astrology? Any insights?
I've experienced this. I agree with you, it's an 8th/12th house deal. Stress and fear.
Try to form a habit - makes sure to clear your mind when you go to sleep. Perhaps ask your guardian angel to watch over you.
I also have learned to set dreams like this aside, the very minute I wake up. It's bad enough. I don't recall ever getting a benefit from trying to mine them.
I mean, if you wake with information - great. But I don't think extending the reach of something like this, makes sense.
Come to think of it, you might see it as a spasm... muscle spasm. When you have one of those, you let it go, as soon as possible.
I had sleep paralysis a lot when I was a child. I have both Pisces Sun/Moon conjunct in H8. Sun is my chart ruler and Moon rules H12. I also have Neptune on my SN square the Sun and Moon and my Neptune rules H8. I would say definitely 8/12 house related.
North node in my 8th, Saturn in my 12th. I suffered from hundreds, probaly over a thousand sleep paralysis since I was a little child. I do believe they were demonic cause right before, the same day or after, we get paranormal activity and attacks on awake members in the household. shadow men, shadow creatures, dishes crashing on the ground. The way we stopped them from attacking us in sleep is simple, we sleep on our side now. They prefer you on your back. We also put salt lamps around the house and it helps from the other activity. I dont believe what the scientists say on the matter cause they think astrology is fake too.
Thank you, everyone! All of your experiences have been comforting and useful. I think this wasn't the first time it happened. I think it was also happening when I was a little girl and that my grandfather was helping me, but I pushed it back. Funny thing. I was sleeping on my side, and funny thing, my mom told me two days after that while she was napping that her late mom pulled her toe while she was sleeping and told her in her dream she was cold. She said someone really pulled her for her toe, but after reading your comment @Morningstar, I'm not so sure anymore. I also have Saturn in the 12th house (Scorpio).
I'm a Christian and I believe this is a form of spiritual attack.
If you are a believer, pray to God for protection and ask Him to show you if there is anything in your life which is leaving you vulnerable to negative spiritual energies and what you can do about it.
I believe dark spiritual energy has increased enormously in the world today, in part because of all the negativity and deception that is rampart, and all the suffering we are experiencing as a collective.
I was experiencing what I later discovered to be spiritual attacks, after the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the new age deception and my false beliefs that were keeping me in the dark. As scary as it was, I am grateful, because it caused me to wake up and repent. I said a prayer for you, I hope you find relief from this.
