Spiritual perspective on sleep paralysis

Question: What causes sleep paralysis?

Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Washington, D.C. (USA) in 2019.


In many cases, in fact, in most cases, it's the influence of dark forces. It can be entities, it can be demons. It can, in some cases, be discarnates, such as family members that have departed that you are attached to. The immediate way to deal with this is to give calls for spiritual protection, give calls to Astrea to cut you free from these dark forces. In the longer run it will, of course, be helpful to find out why you are vulnerable to these forces because not everybody is and this relates to some kind of separate self. In the case of a family member, it can be an attachment to that person, and you then need to let go of it. It's more complex to figure out if it's an entity or some more aggressive demon, but again, you can (by working with it gradually) uncover this and set yourself free from it.

Now, there can be other reasons for this in the sense that there are people who are, basically you could say to make it simple, they are having an out-of- body experience while they are asleep. In other words, their consciousness leaves the physical body and then what can happen is that people almost wake up while this is happening.  All of a sudden, your body is beginning to wake up but your consciousness hasn't come back into the body and therefore you experience that you cannot move the body as you normally do. This can be a cause of it. It's not the most common cause, but it can certainly happen that way. And what you can do about it is, well again, make the calls for protection but what you can do is to try if you can completely relax in the situation. Instead of panicking, instead of going into tension of wanting to move the body, you can ask yourself, “What's really dangerous here? My body is lying in bed, there is no outside danger. Why do I need to panic? I can just relax.” And then you will gradually come back into the body.

Webinar times and last call to sign up


For practical reasons, we will not be selling access to the webinar after midnight CEST Friday, May 29th, so if you are planning to attend but have not yet purchased the webinar, please do so before then.
Apparently there has been some confusion about the time difference, so I wanted to clear that up.
The times given for the webinar are based on the time in Copenhagen, Denmark, which is on central European summer time (CEST), which is UTC +2.
The easiest way to figure out the time difference between your location and CEST is to search for time zone converter, or use this link:
Enter your home town first, then enter Copenhagen and the program will give you the time for both locations so you can figure out the difference.
