Sleep Paralysis

Sleep Paralysis consists primarily of an inability to perform voluntary movements—either at sleep onset or upon awakening. It is usually accompanied by other bodily sensations—none of which are pleasant. This can be a very frightening experience.

I used to have this problem myself.

I experienced this problem over 30 years ago. For me, it happened only when I was about fall asleep. It happened repeatedly—though not every time I went to bed.

As I was about to fall asleep, I would suddenly become paralyzed. Additionally, there was this awful feeling that was always the same: My head felt like a moving drill bit. And there was nothing I could do about it. It was scary—but I doubt it ever lasted more than a minute.

I experienced this problem both before and after I got saved. Getting saved made no difference whatsoever.

After I got saved, however, I tried using the Bible. When the paralysis came on, I said out loud "Satan, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ." The paralysis and associated symptoms immediately disappeared. Talk about a faith builder for a new Christian!

This happened a number of times—each time, the same thing happened.

Then it happened again. I tried to rebuke Satan, as before, but I could not speak. So I prayed: "Dear Lord, I pray for you rebuke the Devil in Jesus' name." Instantly, the problem disappeared.

I don't remember if this happened only once—or twice. But the problem has been gone for over 30 years.

In researching this problem on the internet, I have been amazed at how many people suffer from sleep paralysis, how much they have suffered—and how big of a problem this has been for people.

Some people are even prescribed psychotropic medication.

It is possible that some people may not have the instant results I experienced. I know, from clinical experience, that other types of "hallucinations" do not always disappear just because the Devil is rebuked in the name of Jesus. Sometimes there is a legitimate medical issue involved. But usually, they don't disappear because the Devil has a spiritual foothold.

However, from what I have been able to gather over the internet, I believe my experience is typical. I have never had a client with Sleep Paralysis.

If you are saved, just pray and/or rebuke the Devil in the name of Jesus. In my experience, rebuking the Devil does the trick—you don't have to also say "demons."

You can do the same for other "hallucinations."

Never try to rebuke the Devil until you first get saved. That is potentially dangerous (Acts 19:13-17).

So that's it. As far as I know, you now have everything you need to solve this problem—permanently.
