Sleep paralysis

I have a client that attended for chronic insomnia. After two session we have not had a shift. On further probing though she says she experiences sleep paralysis regularly and believes there is an evil presence. So she actually fears going to sleep. People do have hallucinations in sleep paralysis and it’s well known that there is a feeling of evil or darkness. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on addressing this or perhaps reframing her belief in the presence of an evil spirit.

Hi Libby, sleep paralysis is a normal part of sleep, it’s purpose is to protect against movement particularly violent or sudden movement during dreaming/ nightmares .so try reframing with the knowledge that sleep paralysis is there to protect from harm and whilst it is a disconcerting experience should you awake whilst still in a state of paralysis it is of positive and good intention and is certainly not evil.

Maybe try the guardian angel script so she can think about being protected by her angel at night while she sleeps and keeping her safe from whatever she thinks might be in her room.

Re: Sleep paralysis

Does the client try to sleep with the lights on? this won't help the insomnia.Get her to leave a light on in the hallway,and imagine being surrounded by a golden or white protective light.

Re: Sleep paralysis

Hi Libby (automatic translation) That is my speech in those cases. Reality doesn't exist, it's a construction of your brain from the visual sound signals it converts. Sleep paralysis is a well-known phenomenon, due to dissociation when waking up and that anyone can experience one day. (During a lot of fatigue, for example, poor sleep. Hallucinations that can occur have quite the appearance of reality. Your brain can't even tell the difference between the image you really see and the image it builds itself in this partial sleep state. You are not crazy, and there is nothing diabolical. If it ever happens again, breathe, go to sleep and wait for a full alarm clock, or use an end-of-hypnosis alarm clock. Customers understand, otherwise, it could be the basis of a beautiful hypnosis script to imagine and write.
