What is Really Behind Ghosts, Demons, and Alien Visitations according to sleep researchers

Do you think that ghosts, demons, and aliens exist? Do you ever experience terror as stealing your mental tranquility and leaving you with nothing but perpetual misery? And how are you going to handle this awful atmosphere? There is a lesson in this, I suppose.

The presence of ghosts, demons, and aliens at night causes extreme stress, terror, and anxiety in many people all over the world.

Not only is it difficult to fall asleep, but it is also a terrifying experience in which you are unable to move. What is the cause of this, one wonders? Sleep scientists have a solution for this.

They claim that it is a medical condition referred to as "Sleep Paralysis." In this state, your body remains immobile and you are unable to move, but your mind is awake, so you may feel as though someone is choking you or tormenting you.

It's because you frequently experience nightmares in which the things you view seem real. You might believe that your limbs are whirling or that you are sinking into your bed. Additionally, you have eerie hallucinations.

The type of these hallucinations varies from person to person. For instance, although most people in the United States would imagine ghosts, most Canadians would imagine a monster or a witch assaulting them.

Therefore, there is a cultural divide in people's ideas, which ultimately leads to prolonged paralysis and increased anxiety. It is far more prevalent in people who believe in the supernatural. Another cause of these hallucinations is stress.

Sleep paralysis:

We cycle through various stages of sleep. Non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep, which deepens throughout the night, is where we start. The cycle repeats itself until REM sleep is reached. We are most likely to experience vivid dreams during REM sleep. At this point, we are also paralyzed, possibly as a safety measure to prevent us from acting out our dreams and ultimately attempting to fly.

However, during sleep paralysis, REM sleep characteristics carry over into the waking state. Those who encounter it will feel awake but may struggle to move and have hallucinations that resemble dreams. Around 8% of people report having this experience, thus it is rather common (although estimates vary dramatically depending on who we are asking). By deliberately interfering with some people's sleep, it is even feasible to cause sleep paralysis in them.

Some scholars, including French ones, think that this explains a significant percentage of paranormal accounts. Finally, the public is becoming aware of sleep paralysis, but we still need to learn more about this widespread ailment.

Our preliminary research, which I describe in my new book Nodding Off: The science of sleep from cradle to grave, suggests that there may be genetic and environmental factors that contribute to some people's greater susceptibility to sleep paralysis than others. It must now be repeated with substantially larger samples. In our review of the literature, we also emphasized several additional factors connected to this widespread experience, such as stress, trauma, psychiatric issues, and medical disorders.

    The effects of Sleep Paralysis are:- 

    • Being unable to speak or move after awakening.
    • You feel like you're choking because of something crushing on your chest.
    • The feeling of being lifted off the bed and possibly taken somewhere else is known as levitation.
    • More anxiety.
    • Panic hallucinations
    • Chronic, prolonged, and potentially traumatizing.

    Numerous horrific nightly visits have been attributed throughout history to sleep paralysis. It may go on for 20 seconds or several minutes. Additionally, 8% of the population is impacted.

    No physical harm can come to someone who experiences sleep paralysis. It is not like a nightmare.

    This illness appears to have developed as a result of inadequate sleep or a sleeping issue (Narcolepsy). Unsound mental health is another factor. Sleep paralysis comes in two varieties: -

    Hypnagogic: occurs right before falling asleep or when sleep begins.

    Hypnopompic: immediately following waking up (at the transition from sleep to awakening). But due to sleep scientists, a psychological remedy to stop sleep paralysis has been created:

    • Meditation and relaxation.
    • Getting enough sleep.
    • Avoid alcohol or caffeine closer to bedtime.
    • Prescribed anti-depressant drugs can help manage sleep paralysis.
    • Pre- relaxation practices before nighttime.
