Sleep paralysis is the inability to move or speak immediately after waking up. It happens when a person wakes up before REM sleep is finished.

Great work! I'm happy to see something a little different from you but that still keeps your style 100%, excellent aesthetics and theme. As someone who lived with a person suffering from sleep paralysis, this quite hits home. :)

Wow, I see, this is quite a common problem probably, I realised that If I tell myself I can fly - sometimes it works! Thanks, Roger, I like the esthetic approach as you call it here too. ;) (Wink)

:D Yeah I heard the same from my partner at the time, she managed to sometimes take control over it, but for the most part it remained very scary. I can only say, I was glad it wasn't happening to me. :s

Ooh I had sleep paralysis once and it was very scary experience. I could hear everything around me, and I could still see part of my dream where someone is chasing me :D It was scary that I could not wake up or move at all. Then after a little bit I was able to move and my god I was scared to go sleep again... 

I love how you did this piece. The models pose is awesome and love the elements you add around her. I could feel the pressure on her and that she is experiencing sleep paralysis.

Very interesting concept and you excecuted it amazingly dear Jan! :heart:

Yeah, Roosa, sleep paralysis can be so scary, I had few times in my life too, it happens especially to the people with fever ... Remember you can always tell yourself that you can fly and it works :fly:
