Oh my gosh...hun! Did you maybe have a supernatural experience?

I'm not sure if you believe in that or no but it sounds to me like it was more than just  dream...

I have that all the time. Well except the shadow dream part. But I am mentally alert but my body isnt. I forget what the name of this symptom is. Ill look it up when I come online thru the land line.
Ive had these since I was a little girl as far back as 7 or 8.

Try to relax drink tea and get some sleep mama.

 Yes I had that happen to me me, actually a few times. it is scary. What helps me is when i first notice i can't move i just close my eyes and start to pray. The more i struggle to get up, talk or move makes me feel worse so i just lay there close my eyes and pray, pray alot and it works for me.

Call me superstitious and crazy, but I would sprinkle some holy water around the house.

It is nothing to worry about. It is simply YOU trying to get back into your own body after your spirit astral projects. It has to routinely do this as your spirit was not meant for a physical body and must have time to be free.

I suggest googling Astral Projection or Astral Catalepsy so you can know more about it. Also, Sylvia Browne talks about it A LOT saying it is NOT an outside force and nothing to be scared of. It is simply yourself!

Also, this is a time you are most in tune with the "other side" as you are between planes. Between the physical reality and spiritual one. that is why you can hear thoughts, talking, etc during this time. The force, however, is your own spirit re-entering your body.

In non-spiritual terms, this is commonly known as sleep paralysis.

Astral Catalepsy


Quote:

The term “astral catalepsy” was coined around 1930 by a researcher named Sylvan Muldoon, who spent much of his life recording the astral trips his spirit took during the night while his body slept. The first of those trips that he was aware of, when he was twelve years old, illustrates the birth of his intensive study of what he’d heard referred to until then only as “sleep paralysis”.

Muldoon’s first recorded astral trip during sleep started with his waking up in the middle of the night to find himself unable to move, see or hear, with a painful sense of severe pressure on his head. As his senses and ability to move slowly returned, and the pressure on his head subsided, he realized that he was actually outside of his body, floating above his bed and able to look down at himself and watch himself sleep. He was conscious of his spirit being pulled from a horizontal position to a vertical one as it left his body, and of embarking on a very detailed tour of the house in which he, in his spirit form, was able to move with great ease through doors and walls. He also was very aware of trying to shake his parents awake because he was afraid of what was happening to him, but they never seemed to feel him touching them.

And then, when he was above his body again, his spirit was pulled back into a horizontal position, and he experienced the same paralysis, loss of senses and pressure on his head that he’d gone through earlier. After a feeling of being jerked abruptly back into his body, he sat bolt upright in bed in a complete panic, able to remember and immediately write down the whole sequence of events with crystal clarity.

Sylvan Muldoon had an advantage in that experience that few who go through astral catalepsy enjoy – he had full memory of all the events before and after the sleep paralysis occurred, which gave him a context for what had happened to him. Without that context, it’s no wonder astral catalepsy feels like such a terrifying assault. So here’s the context and the explanation behind it.

Several times a week, whether we’re aware of it or not, our spirits take temporary breaks from our bodies during sleep to go visiting, exploring and simply running free. The vast majority of time, our spirits slip into and out of our bodies with the greatest of ease, without disturbing our sleeping conscious minds for a moment. But on rare occasions, depending on the level of sleep the conscious mind happens to be in, it can “catch” the spirit coming or going from the body. And in its less-than-alert state, the conscious mind, realizing the spirit is half in and half out of its body, jumps to an obvious conclusion: The body must be dying. It panics and promptly sends “you’re dying” signals to the body that correspond exactly to many of the sensations of astral catalepsy – the paralysis, the loss of senses, the inability to breathe or cry out for help; a whole serious of physiological and neurological “short circuits”. But when the conscious mind realizes that the spirit is safe and sound in the body again the signals stop, the sensations subside and another jarring but ultimately harmless incident is over with.
