By: Nutter with Pastor Paralysis
Asia Paranormal is honored to have the participation of a Pastor of a Baptist Church from Portland in the state of Oregon, USA. He would like to be known as 'Sleep Paralysis'.
Mr. Sleep Paralysis has experienced over a thousand five hundred episodes of Sleep Paralysis, or so he claims, and in this Part 1 Interview with him, the revered Clergyman answers our readers' questions and shares with us his personal experiences.
AP: What constitutes and causes sleep paralysis?
I believe that any person who truly experiences Sleep Paralysis has been exposed to the spirit world. We are a people who exist in a natural world, and yet all around us there is an unseen world. This world is known as the "Spirit World". It consists of spiritual beings that are aware of our natural existence.
I also believe that beings of the "Spirit World" have an ability to communicate with us through Sleep Paralysis. I DO NOT believe that Sleep Paralysis occurs as a result of R.E.M. (Rapid Eye Movement during Sleep) but through our sensory perception which is given to us by GOD. Sensory Perception is the faculty of self awareness represented by hearing, sight, smell, touch, and taste.
Most of the fifteen hundred plus Sleep Paralysis episodes that I have personally encountered were brought to my awareness through sight and sound. I have never encountered Sleep Paralysis through dreams, stress, weakness, and illnesses or as a result of some spiritual warfare.
I have a wonderful life. I am happily married with eight beautiful children. I am an Independent Baptist Pastor who has been in full time ministry for over eighteen years. Prior to my call to ministry I was in Public Relations as a Marketing Manager and a Senior Area Manager for a fast food chain. I also worked as a Top Clearance Security Officer for Military Avionics and Space.
I am currently fifty years of age and serving as a Senior Pastor in a Baptist church. I also received my education from St. Petersburg College and Bible Baptist College. Therefore, upon establishing some of my personal background and livelihood experiences I would like to offer to you what I believe are causes of Sleep Paralysis.
1. Sleep Paralysis occurs when you are encountered by an entity from the "Spirit World". Why You?
Because you are a channel through which the entity can communicate.
They come to your realm of living enquiring you to come to their realm of life.
I will explain more through my encounters why I believe this to be true.
Many, if not all who experience Sleep Paralysis episodes are too fearful to go through a total encounter of Sleep Paralysis. The entity's presence is so fearful and the accompaniment of loss abilities of movement and speech is a fearful and frightening thing.
For those who truly experience Sleep Paralysis, they realize this isn't the natural realm in which we live and function in. It is our realm being influenced by an other realm, or what I would like to term as 'The Natural World vs. the Spirit World'.
Sleep Paralysis occurs when you are woken by the presence of an Entity entering into your presence. I believe paralysis begins upon the presence of the Entity (or) Entities.
The awareness of paralysis is always recognized through your Sensory Perceptions. The Entity always makes itself known by one (or) more of these senses.
Therefore, upon realizing that the Entity is before you, you are already beginning paralysis. I believe that paralysis is the result of two different beings from two different dimensions coming together - The Natural World/ Human race and the Spirit World/ Entity. When you hear or see the Entity, the paralysis has begun.
2. How do you know?
Because at that point you are unable to move or call / cry out. Then when the Entity approaches you or lays on your body you are in total paralysis. The Spiritual Entity comes in contact with the natural strength of Humanity.
I find that paralysis has a purpose, but many of life's purposes are never brought to a conclusion because people are crippled by "FEAR". They never understand why Sleep Paralysis comes to them. Most encounters of Sleep Paralysis usually result in an extraordinary warfare to regain their ability to move and speak. And yet like so many who undergo the trials of life, those who experience sleep paralysis never seem to understand or gain the knowledge or answers to the questions we search for in this life.
