Ok so this has happened to me before, but last night was the most intense/like a trip experience ever, almost not scary thank god I have had it when it has been terrifying. So what happened was I was lying down trying to sleep (this usually happens, at least to me, when I am trying to sleep but not fully tired) and I started to go to 'sleep' but I was still awake. Like I was lying on my side looking at my clock kinda closing my eyes and I fell 'awake' and started to pretty much trip out with my eyes open and hear shit and see shit and I was still pretty much conscious. Like I said this has happened before and I knew what was happening and it was almost enjoyable, in an interesting way. I have heard a friend talk about the same thing happening, so I know it's not just me. Also I think it is most likely to happen if I haven't smoked in a few days (tend to dream a lot when I stop smoking, not so much when I am smoking) and when I have been sleeping too much and can't sleep, or if it has been a stressful/ emotional day. Has this happened to anyone else? Isn't it crazy?!?!? EDIT: forgot to mention when this happens you become paralyzed and cannot move, as if asleep. reEDIT: This is called Sleep Paralysis, but it is different for different people and still an interesting phenomenon, so yea, discuss?
