Why does sleep paralysis only affect some folks?
The sleep paralysis experience is a spiritual engagement. A meeting of worlds so to speak. It is through the sleep process that the non-physical ‘you’ and the non-physical energy that surrounds us can engage. Whilst you sleep you release resistance and allow your vibration to rise.
Like all spiritual engagements, ones vibrational frequency is key and the same is so for sleep paralysis. We all vibrate at different frequencies and to engage sleep paralysis, the frequency is quite high. In the same way that not everyone is clairvoyant or claircognizant. Therefore, those who experience sleep paralysis vibrate at a high frequency which gives them the ability to engage non-physical energy.
I will say, that this ability has the potential to do far more than experience sleep paralysis. Many spiritual gifts can be accessed as well as spiritual engagements and levels of enlightenment.
