Da Weekend Dailies & Sleep Paralysis

Filed in Asteroids

Dr Suess

This is such a bitch of a Dark Moon for many of us – i just posted extended Daily Horoscopes for the weekend, for extra oomph.

Also, how weird is this – someone in the comments said they had sleep paralysis this week. I had it. Two people at my Pilates class had it. Then an ex from a 1000 years ago emailed to ask if i knew anything about it. I get that five people are not a swarm or even a trend but still – any of you guys?  You’re conscious but it’s a twilight kind of consciousness and it’s like you can’t pull out of your dream and just wake up.

I feel like it’s Plutonic and the dreams it tends to come with are always quite the Pluto – your own personal little psychic underworld – experience.   In ancient days they thought it was an actual demon. The word “nightmare” comes from night (obviously) and the Norse “mara”.  A.k.a a kind of incubus.

Now they say it’s purely biological – a quirk of our cognitive wiring – but nobody has (I don’t think) a big official explanation for it. Or aliens – as the new demons – get the blame for it.

I love how this sufferer has turned into a business – Sleep Terror Nightwear

Do any of you get this? Lately? Under stress? Or during a time of psychological churn?  It feels like Pluto but maybe Uranian/Aquarius types are more prone to it?

The Greek God of Sleep was called Hypnos – Roman equivalent Somnius.  As in “hypnosis” and “insomnia.”

They’re both asteroids – Hypnos is number 14827 and Somnium 3258 – you can throw them into your chart via Astrodienst Extended Chart Options. Hypnos is currently at 20 Libra (on the North Node) and Somnium is at 14 Virgo, on Venus.

Thoughts?

Multiple pisces here. I’ve had asleep paralysis since mid August. Waking up frantically thinking about…..nothing important but thinking at the speed of light anyway. Have just been able to sleep a whole night since last Thursday. Pluto has been hovering back and forth over my descendant for years but I don’t think that’s the cause. And can you believe it – on a romantic/naughty weekend with my husband in a motel last night and the fuqing evacuate alarm goes off at 4.30 am. It’s like someone upstairs is saying you have a lot happening that needs your full attention. Take… Read more »

Twice! First time I woke up dreaming that these little people (little, black, mischievous) were urging me to ‘come and play, come and play’, I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe. Yelled NO, and fully woke up already half way out of my bed taking the biggest breath as my nose was blocked and I had had my mouth closed. Second time I was meditating, an hour, vipassana style, I lay down at the end to sing ‘loka somasta sukeno bhavantu’, (may all beings be happy) and a predator being like the one from the movie descended on me intent on rape.… Read more »

Where peeps identify themselves as Anon and such…

“oh we cannot speak our truth for then others will not think us nice…Oh we must have fluffy white clouds and such..

And other such bull..

Have seen it more than once that where people are not real..which Pluto is demanding right now…things do not last.

Just saying.

Again very condescending, rude and rather nasty Sweetpea. Am quite sure Mystic can handle the ‘manipulative iiars’ herself. What on earth is making you so angry? Your diet? Read your language: ‘Hate, liars, manipulative, delusional, bull,eat it’ etc. This is not the language of love, let alone unconditional love, the highest attainment that all spiritual teachings ask of us. Words are powerful, they are symbols to be used with care. Yes i am challeging you on this ‘holier than thou’ attitude. Our greatest teacher is ourselves what we discover personally not paradigms of others. Sweetie, i do not ‘tell you… Read more »

“manipulative liars” 😯 Look into the mirror why don’t you. What has become of you Sweetpea?? Such arrogance. The sweetness has left you.

As Pegs said, Mystic is quite capable of looking after her own blog. Didn’t you unsubscribe and say you were leaving. Why are you still here for? To enlighten us? We’re all on our own paths, we don’t need you to guide us or tell us we’re doing it wrong.

When i was 14 i woke up and I felt that i had risen above my body and I was looking down at it. I felt so scared and kept willing myself back down to my body. As i came down into my body my whole body started to get pins and needles all over my body then i woke up. I was so aware of what happened. I wasn’t sick or anything like that i was completely well. I am now in my 50s and still remember it quite vividly. Scarey stuff

Funny you should talk about sleep. Night before last just couldn’t sleep, and last night got some but sort of sleep where I dread closing my eyes. My mind is rearranging my life script on its own, and dreams are very strange in a kind of thick mundane sort of way. Like I was in trouble, called my brother on a cell phone and party going on on the other end and I had to whistle into cell phone to get him to say anything. This has zero to do with any waking reality of who my brother is. Lots… Read more »

In TCM, some practitioners treat dream paralysis as Liver Qi Stagnation which leads to Fire which harasses the Heart and creating Heart heat. So sleep (Heart) is disrupted… can manifest as a heavy weight on the chest too.

Also it is seen as Phlegm Fire misting the mind or obstructing the mental orifices. It happens in times of stress mostly. Comes and goes, no real rhythm.

Some handy advice is to not get too hot while sleeping. If your body gets over-heated then you’ll be more prone to bringing on an episode.

Article today in Mail Online about dreams & nightmares. It said dreams are more bizarre the longer you sleep, more frequent with PMT.

Yes stress was mentioned, so the correlation is certainly there with TCM.

Countless examples over the years starting at the end of my teens I think and I don’t attribute most of them to dreaming but parallel realities or out of body roaming with some in body consciousness which is of course why the body isn’t able to move or at least that sounds logical to me. Most of them are unpleasant and dark and have terrified me on occasion but I have managed to slay or evade each and every one of them and I trust they’re not looking over my shoulder now going… ya think?! It’s definitely not a challenge… Read more »

In TCM they believed that we could be taken over by “spirits” or “demons” and had ways and techniques of dealing with this. But a lot of this knowledge was eventually lost during Mao´s Cultural Revolution, as a lot of the old texts dealing with this were destroyed. So now only those practitioners who are adventurous enough are researching it again.

Yes I think I loosely recall… Po or Hun might be relevant or bringing one’s own self back into the body if it’s too far out.. not sure what spirit that one is but the point on the top of the head is fab.

Studied TCM myself but it was a long time ago and I’m sketchy. I still regularly partake of it’s benefits. 🙂

Hey, I’ve been thinking about these experiences all day. And you know, for me some of them actually have been quite sexy but still otherworldly. I used to suffer terrible migraines and took ergotamine for them, once I was able to still myself from the pain – rather, remove myself- would often go into deeply hallucinogenic states (this started from late childhood till the end of my teens). Anyway, many of these “paralysis dreams” were highly erotic. I was often in the infirmary at school having these dreams and would come to really worried about what people may have witnessed… Read more »

I think it’s just what came to mind first and had the strongest memories around it but now that you mention it I realise I’d forgotten…erotic but uncomfortable/weird or a polarised sensory type thing.

I think these dreams fall into two camps eg the wet dream type thing which is more of a dream and the entity which is, imo an unquantifiable thing irrespective of what might documented conclusions are out there in science.

I had a wow moment when I read your post, and thanks for adding another element to the mix to reflect on.

In the mid 80s, when the whole alien abductions thang was hitting the news, I wasn’t paying that much attention because it was all happening over in USA. Down in Oz, we were bemused, discarding it as another weird hysteria from the land of nutsos. I say that with love. My best friends are nutsos. So, around that time, I had a series of “dreams” (for lack of a better word) over 2 nights where I, by chance, uncovered a community of aliens. They spotted me…..big chase…all felt hyper-real… wake up. Next night’s dream takes off where the previous night’s… Read more »

Sweetpea, Saying someone’s ‘full of shit’ isn’t so ‘spiritual’. Issuing ultimatums isn’t either ‘don’t tell any Aries what to do, luv’, is combative language i.e.: drawing the sword. One can draw the sword or light the lamp and hopefully have the wisdom to differentiate between them. ‘Don’t know what the hell you are talking about”. How loving, how soft and gentle, so spiritual. ‘Delusional’? That’s so rude to say about myself and PIAB’s here. It’s making value judgements, very unspiritual. The Ascended Master’s all have their roots in the Theosophical Society via Madame Blavastsky & her cronies. Also known as… Read more »

I experienced sleep paralysis a lot as a teenager – it was very upsetting and made me anxious for a long time until I understood it better. When it started I thought I was under the weight of a suffocating demon who was trying to possess me.

This feeling was explored to great dramatic effect in ‘Giants of the Frost’ – a fantasy thriller by Australian-based writer Kim Wilkins.

Fascinating topic and the comments… But once again I find I’m having entirely different experience. Sleeping so deeply and having dreams which feel positive, and remembering them. Last night I was finding money. Like, just going about my day and noticing notes of different denominations lying like fallen leaves that everyone else seemed to pass by, and picking them up and putting them in my pocket… No emotion was attached to it whatsoever, just a disbelief that I was the only one getting the luck of picking them up. Weird but good. I suspect sleep disturbances are a symptom of… Read more »

I had a 4 year period of almost bi-weekly sleep paralysis (usually at 3:00am or 3:33am, I really know how to spook myself) and in those last two years many lucid dreams, astral projections and psychic dreams. Then it completely dropped off. I actually kind of miss it. I thought for sure it would be Pluto on my Neptune but it wasn’t. It does however line up almost exactly with Neptune’s transit of my 3rd house! So no sleep paralysis but the night before last I woke up in mid-process of tearing all the rings off my right hand.

I don’t think I get sleep paralysis as is described here.

What does happen sometimes is waking up completely depersonalized and unable to breathe. Like I am not there, I’ve never seen the room before in my life, I don’t have a life, I am looking at my wall like what’s this?, and then all of a sudden I remember to take a breath.

That’s scary too. No idea what it’s called. It accompanies depression. I haven’t had it for awhile, fortunately.

Yeah, I have suffered with sleep paralysis. It usually happens when I am really tired and/or very stressed. When I first dreamt it, I was a Russian doll being hammered into shape on a table with my real limbs in cuffs. Very frightening. I’ve learnt NOT to take naps when I am extremely tired if I can help it. I absolutely can’t move at all when it happens so unlike the commenter above there’s no way for me to turn towards it. So I just stay still, remind myself it will stop & keep breathing.

When I dream of confrontation I always struggle dream paralysis – I didn’t know it was a thing.Hah!

Edgar Cayce wrote a lot about dreams. Lucid dreaming was big in the 70s and 80s.

Most religious traditions have prayers for transition: returning and leaving home, upon waking and going to sleep. Points of entry for mischievous entities? Hoochie juice can induce paralysis in extreme quantity. I see paralysis and encroaching zombies as low Neptune. The terror and loss of control as Pluto.

I never have problems sleeping, until this week when I do sleep my dreams have been super vivid, super intense, and contain hauntings of people from my past so I fail to feel rested.

Yes. Sleep paralysis, in the same bloody recurring nightmare have had on and off for 5 years. Sometimes I can lucid dream but in this one I wake up in my real house. Try and turn on the lights but they’re all broken. People trying to break in, I trying to call cops but can’t speak. It’s frightening but been having a good hard think about it and think I’m finally getting to the bottom of the “people ” trying to break into my house. They’re part of me, of course, the saboteur in me. Pluto Pluto Pluto…. How great… Read more »

Yes, i have had that one too. Go to turn the lights on and none of them come on.

These are all similar experiences we have had.

Umm, the ether just took my reply so again.. Yes! Im curious too, what is a daisy dog? I first started having sleep paralysis and the broken lights nightmare in late teens. First time I went to live OS I had an awful recurring night mare where I would wake up in my bed with a “man” in my room. I couldn’t move or make noise, he would then proceed to slither all over me..terrifying. Eventually I would force myself up to turn on the light which would be broken then back stuck with the “man” over and over again.… Read more »

Guys, Pegasus’s Daisy dog is a real staffy/pitbulls cross! 🙂 I can attest that I also don’t have these dreams anymore since sleeping with my dog near me, these last nearly 10 years. Before, I would have the sensation of sleep paralysis, not see anything or anyone but be scared and pray til it would stop. I was reading a real life ghost stories forum, and a large percentage of the readers seemed to have these type experiences, with variations. One woman wrote that having her dog sleep near her stopped this happening also, she thought having the warm body… Read more »

Yes, because they absorb it. That is their service to humanity.

We really should be more careful about the crap we project onto our pets.

I say that lovingly really.

Had a girlfriend whose cat was just the most horrid tempered..

She cornered the Kataka daughter and daughter said “she wouldn’t let me out”..so funny

An American Staffordshire pure bred
and divine in bed, just so cuddly, so adoring. Alas she is only with me part-time as she is shared. My buffer zone from the Demented Virgo Neighbour who’s cat screams, yowls and ‘calls’ due to absorbing his mental illnesses
(or possession by demons), the professional psychic said the cat is absorbing his stuff.
What i project onto Daisy Dog is love, care, discipline and the best diet money can afford.

I have suffered from sleep paralysis for years, being brought up a christian, I honestly thought it was a demon. When I got older I noticed that I always had it the night after a big night out. I came across some info one day that laid down all the symptoms I had in a matter of fact science-y way. The awake but not awake feeling, the deafening roar (like an enraged demon in my ears) and the inability to wake myself up. I had tried a lot of things, green string tied around my finger before going to bed,… Read more »

This really speaks to me! I get the awful super loud roar of noise too! The more I fight the paralysis/”demon”, the louder it gets but it eventually relents and I get to wake up. I’ve always felt too scared in the moment to try anything other than fight through. The adrenaline rush I get tends to make me panic and I sometimes feel physical pain too which all together turns me into a mess, hehe. I just end up regressing to prayer that is no longer in line with my beliefs in the waking world, tbh. Anyway, I’ll see… Read more »

OOha, i have heard the ‘noise’ like a roar or thunder.
A mini electric storm in my brain!
There was one time where a hand clasped mine through the sheet.
It’s really quite freaky re-living it.

Sweet Dreams 🙂

I had this a lot in the past, would go through spells of it almost nightly, more so in my twenties. ‘Demon’…I’m not so sure…but I defo had the sense some other entity was involved, so I can see where that comes from. Haven’t had it for ages tho. I always thought it happened when I was…not my best.

I was yawning the whole time, ghe owner walked out at 3 for a sleep and the staff (both liitle party people) were headed home for a sleep. I overheard one ralking with hipster dude who is was also staying in for an early bed time.

My friend Ryan gets sleep paralysis. Wakes up and senses a dark energy/sees a creature near him and cannot move. My neighbor was just telling me yesterday that he had a similar experience camping once, thought a bear was outside the tent and tried to shout to scare him off and couldn’t make a sound.

My friend sent me this article about the Hmong tribe and sleep paralysis a few years ago:
http://m.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2011/09/the-dark-side-of-the-placebo-effect-when-intense-belief-kills/245065/

I’ve been having intense dreams lately. And occasional waking paranoia/sense of danger. No sleep paralysis.

Yes, it is not a pleasant experience, that entity.
Sleep paralysis is horrid, it is scientifically explained
but that doesn’t change the weirdness of it.
I sleep with a protective dog to keep the bogey man away.

Plutonic Colonic. Definitely had that this week. I managed to sleep but… in real life I had this random experience where I got offered a job a lot of people wanted and I wasn’t really going for it. Then every night I had escalating dreams people from my past were trying to kill me. It started with a girl from primary school totally hating on me in a store where she was working and I was a customer. The next night my classroom english teacher was trying to kill me in my own home. But then some major power shifts… Read more »

I have had sleep paralysis a few times in the past and as far as I can remember, each occasion was when I was taking a nap during the day, one of those naps when you just go – “I’m wiped. I need to lie down…” and you just go off to sleep with a thud. I think that each time I was lying on my back, as opposed to lying on my side as I do when I sleep at night. This added to the feeling of being ‘held down’ when I could not move. It’s important to just… Read more »

Pretty much same for me – napping during the day, and occasionally in the night. I usually can’t move and freak out and I’m aware of some sort of presence in the room too?

I’m a pisces/pisces rising, I’ve always put the presence down to my imagination so I can fall back asleep without freaking myself out even more.

I feel a presence in the room too. I am pisces moon and pisces rising.

Amazing that we’re all Pisces rising!

I too feel a presence but I take note that I’m dreaming at the same time. Once I dreamed that a person who was, in reality, in the other room of the house, was holding me down. So I think I was just getting used to having a housemate and was perhaps feeling a bit constricted.
