Sleep Paralysis

World Of Words

Day 4 and Day 5

 “Sleep Paralysis is is a phenomenon in which an individual, either during falling asleep or awakening, briefly experiences an inability to move, speak, or react”

I don’t know if any of you has endured sleep paralysis before, or if any of you even knows about it.

It’s that situation when you wake up and you can’t move and sometimes you hallucinate or dream about a person or a ghost or anything supernatural watching or trying to kill you.

I experience this kind of phenomenon a lot and whenever I experience this phenomenon I always dream of something scary.

I want to share with you guys what I dreamed of when I had another experience just last night. I will try to share with you my past experiences as well, I really don’t record this events normally, I just started recording them about a year ago, I think. So far I’ve written down three sleep paralysis events that I endured, but for this day I give to you.

“The Hair Strangler”

“with this hair I will strangle you!”


I know, I know… I put a really funny caption on it, but it really is what he meant to say to me when I was dreaming about him.

I usually sleep in a fetus position but during the course of the night I toss and turn from left to right and back again. Then there’s just that time that I end up in soldier position (the opposite of sleeping on your stomach). That’s is the time that I endure sleep paralysis, sometimes I get so scared of my hallucinations that I literally yell while I’m asleep. Most of those dreams are so vivid that I could remember them up to this time.

Anyway, about this guy and about last night. I was tossing and turning when I finally end up in soldier position. My pillow was covering half my face when I suddenly pulled it a little bit down. Out of nowhere this guy appeared exactly like that picture (above). He was just looking at me holding this thin piece of hair. I knew right then that I was dreaming, having endured so many moments like this probably made me used to it. Though Half of my brain was still scared because of how he looked and how he was looking at me. The other half, not so much, the other half was more like “Dude?! I’m sleeping”. That was until he tried to choked me with the thin hair he was holding that suddenly elongated. I was quite surprised of the durability and elasticity of that single piece of hair. It literally expand until it covered all of my neck. As he was trying to choke me I didn’t even move, I was just lying there. Thankfully enough it was just a dream, a few minutes passed as I was struggling to breathe I woke up, but the event is still crystal clear on my mind.



  1. I’ve experienced sleep paralysis a few times and it is extremely scary. Fortunately it’s only been about three times for me. I can still remember things in great detail. I cannot imagine what it would be like to experience that many times. That’s too bad, I hope it gets better in the future.

    Also, great drawing! I can tell that it has a lot of emotion put into it. 😀


    1. I don’t know if sleep paralysis is dangerous, but I kinda like it actually. It spices up my life.

      Seriously, floating clown heads, demonic floating heads that look like darth maul floating outside your window, ghost girls with snow white skin slowly approaching you from the door and men who want to strangle you with a piece of hair.

      You don’t get that kind of excitement normally, Hahaha

      1. You’ll probably understand why I don’t mind the usual sleep paralysis after my next post, but for me after when I wake up there’s like a 3 second fear. Then it just disappears and I just turn side ways and sleep again.
