Sleep paralysis is a unique experience during which we are unable to move or fully communicate. Scientifically, this happens because the body immobilizes us during sleep to stop us from acting out our dreams. This state often brings with it vivid, sometimes frightening experiences and a feeling of unease. The question of rare movements during sleep paralysis, however, is a fascinating one.

Small Instances of Movement: While most experiences of sleep paralysis involve complete immobility, you can make small, minor movements, such as shifting your eyes or twitching your fingers or toes. These instances, for some strange reason, involve a significant amount of effort from the individual. The moment that the move is made it breaks the sleep paralysis experience and waking up is possible

The Influence of Sleep Stages: The slight movement during sleep paralysis could also be influenced by the stage of sleep in which the event takes place. Sleep paralysis that occurs as we’re falling asleep (hypnagogic sleep paralysis) might be more likely to allow for minor movements than sleep paralysis that happens as we’re waking up (hypnopompic sleep paralysis).

If you would like further support and information on sleep paralysis, I have a Substack community here and have just opened the doors to an online space called Sleep Paralysis Explored with resources here. I also manage a podcast where experiencers talk about their sleep paralysis: Sleep Paralysis News. We are open to hearing more guest stories on the podcast. If you’d like to share your story in written, audio or video format send me an email: spn@sheilaprycebrooks.com.

‘Sheila has that special gift of calming your soul. I was feeling overwhelmed then with my life. I feel that every effort I make doesn't make sense and there is a pressure that I can't define in my life. After our sessions, I was able to sort things out. The conversations we had, lead me to where the pressure is coming from. I am grateful that I reached out to Sheila during my "confused" times. I wish Sheila more success on this. May you touch more souls as you progress!”

‘I was expecting the sessions with Sheila where she would advise and give me directions to take to make my life happy and more secure. She instead taught me how to choose my own directions and grow as a person for unlimited happiness and abundance. I discovered that I could be far more than I originally thought I could be. I have gained a lot more than I expected from spiritual life coaching with Sheila. This is just the start of the new me. Thank you, Sheila.”

‘I would need a great deal more space to describe all the positive, life-changing things that Sheila has introduced me to. I am amazed at her thoughts on relationships, freedom, forgiveness, planning. There were numerous other things that she helped me bring to the fore. The discovery of thoughts and opinions I was carrying was so enlightening. Sheila has an easy, patient and highly intuitive manner. Giving guidance without leading, easily helping me to understand myself deeply. To be allowed to discuss things so openly with someone I felt I could trust was a revelation in itself. The strong trust created in our sessions was key to enabling me to think, to grow and to make my decisions. I now look forward to dealing with situations. Sheila is a fantastic coach… highly recommended.”

‘Sheila Pryce Brooks is the real deal in Spiritual Coaching. She has the kindest, most authentic personality and uses her unique and extraordinary talents to help lovingly guide you through your self-imposed limitations. She was so very helpful to me with a situation that was keeping me 'stuck' and allowed me to see that this was just temporary, while guiding me to release the block, freeing me to move forward toward my vision. Without Sheila, I would have still be wandering around a little longer in that place!! I am grateful for all of your help!”
