I have experienced sleep paralysis for over 30 years chronically. Without any doubt, I can say YES, IT IS CONNECTED TO THE SPIRITUAL REALM.
I posit definitively that it is a spiritual engagement (or a meeting of energy that vibrates at a high frequency). This is something that is experienced only by those with a specific spiritual acuity. For anyone that has experienced sleep paralysis, there are signs of heightened spiritual awareness, that may have been ignored.
My conviction led me to write a book about my experience and develop a business. The focus is on changing the perception of sleep paralysis, from being fear-based, to one of spiritual adventure and the enhancement of spiritual gifts such as clairvoyance.
I have learnt to harness this energy. I now find myself on an indescribable journey of new experiences, awarenesses and perceptions. Sleep paralysis has been a gift for me, which unfolds every day.
