These days, it seems I hear more and more about Sleep Paralysis. In my estimation, this must be due in part to the way that the culmination of information pertaining to strange phenomenon today has allowed an “overlap” of experiences. What I mean by this is that the variety of sources available allow people to relate to others who have had similar things happen to them, whether that be sleep paralysis, an encounter with a ghost, or perhaps a hallucinogenic episode that is remarkably similar to both of these.

But when it comes to Sleep Paralysis in particular, nobody comes to mind more quickly than my friend Louis Proud, author of the book Dark Intrusions: An Investigation into the Paranormal Nature of Sleep Paralysis Experiences (a close second would be Dr. David Hufford PhD., who authored Proud’s introduction). Recently, Louis sent me a recorded segment he has done where he gives a wealth of information about the nature of Sleep Paralysis, delving into a variety of the subjects discussed in his book, as well as rather startling personal experiences of his own with the phenomenon. Below is a link where you can listen to Louis discussing the scientific and paranormal nature of this strange sleep science:
