So I have read countless topics on LD and sleep paralysis for the past year but I still can’t get it right. All the tutorials and guides I’ve read mention the same thing, lying on your back and breathing so that you can relax, staying still and counting on trying to focus so you keep your mind awake. And that’s what I always do.
I lay on my back and I take deep breaths. I always reach the numbness state without any problem at all, but I can’t seem to get paralyzed. People say that when you reach the SP stage, you wont be able to move at all. Well, even though I get the numbness and the bed shaking feeling, I can move my finger (or ANY part of my body) without any problem at all. And after I move it I can totally tell that it was numb a moment ago.
Another thing I’ve read is that when you reach this state, if you open your eyes, you will hear the strange hypnagogia. Again, this doesn’t work for me. I just see my room (if I try this during naps) or just darkness, at night.
Can anyone tell me how to do this right? How do I know that I am REALLY paralyzed and ready to proceed to the next phase?
