Everyone has already experienced that moment when, in the middle of a nightmare, you realize that you are having a bad dream, but you cannot do anything.You cannot wake up despite the fear that grips you. Until finally, an event in the nightmare wakes you up for good. This is called sleep paralysis. It generally occurs in the deeper stages of sleep (REM, rapid eyes movements).

10 The sensation of falling

This is surely the strangest phenomenon during sleep. It usually takes place when you are just about to fall asleep. Finally you start drifting off to sleep when suddenly a feeling surprises you and brings you back to reality. This strange moment is not serious at all, everyone go through it more or less often. This is called the hypnotic pulse. The body prepares for the change of state (waking, sleeping) and sometimes, the body functions slow down to such point that the brain believes that a fail in your body will occur, and it sends a signal that wakes you up, that’s all!
