If You’ve Ever Woken Up Unable To Move, THIS Is What’s Happening To You…

Sleep paralysis is the terrifying feeling of being held down after just waking up or going to sleep.

You can’t move or scream, and sometimes this paralysis is accompanied by the certainty that someone –or something — is in the room.

Quite simply, sleep paralysis is one of the most horrifying experiences in life, because we feel awake but can’t believe what is happening to us.

The truth is, sleep paralysis is a biological event and there is nothing to be worried about. You’re not dying. It’s a hiccup in the brain’s chemical soup as we transition from sleep to wakefulness.

Recurrent sleep paralysis can often be prevented by attending to lifestyle choices, but making new habits can take time.

What Causes Sleep Paralysis?

The basic cause of sleep paralysis is REM atonia:

REM stands for Rapid Eye Movement (the sleep phase linked with dreaming)
Atonia means lack of muscle tension
REM atonia is essential for healthy sleep, else you’d wreak havoc in your neighborhood by acting our your dreams on a nightly basis. This is no good for you, and no good for your neighbors.

As you fall asleep each night, the electrical nerve impulses are cut off between your muscles and your brain. Your brain can still tell your body to do stuff (such as run away from Saruman’s dark army in yet another orc-fueled nightmare) but your body won’t respond.

So far, so good. But what happens if you wake up and the REM atonia remains in place, albeit only for a few seconds? This is when we trip into the territory of sleep paralysis.

So How Do You Wake Up From Sleep Paralysis Tonight?

Here we compiled 6 ways to get out now.

Note: Because this is such a personal thing, some of these tactics will work for you, and others won’t. Choose the ones that make the most sense to you intuitively. Think of these strategies as tools in a toolbox to bring out when the conditions are right. Make a plan and resolve to remember it for the next time you wake up in sleep paralysis.

Relax your body into the paralysis. Don’t fight it forcefully, as this creates panic and increases the chance of having scary hallucinations.
Try to gently wiggle your fingers and toes. These tiny movements will eventually tell your brain that your body is awake and to stop the atonia.
Try to move your eyes by blinking and looking around the room. Again, the goal is to establish waking-like movements to fully awaken your brain and body together.
Try to move your lips and facial muscles.
Focus on breathing as slowly and deeply as you can. If your breathing feels restricted, remember that you have been breathing fine like this while asleep for hours.
Maintain a calm and positive mental state. Focus on relaxing thoughts. Imagine a beach in the sun, a million miles away from the darkness of your bedroom. Sing an upbeat song in your mind.
The Ultimate Method We know — we said 6 ways, but this is the single best way to wake up from sleep paralysis and it’s really in a class of its own. When you realize you are in SP, scrunch up your face. In other words, make a face like you just smelled something bad. Snarl and squint. Do this two or three times in a row and the paralysis will break IMMEDIATELY. We’re not sure why it is so effective, but unlike the pinky wiggle, this method is foolproof.
After you wake up, get out of bed immediately and turn on a light. Wash your face with cold water. If you just stay in bed, the chance of sliding right back into sleep paralysis is pretty high.

Fake Documents That Changed The World

Jesus’ appearance, the invasion of Iraq and the course of WW2 were all influenced by fraudulent writings. How different the course of history could have been if it wasn’t for these 10 fake documents that changed the world.

 

The woman with no face: 21-year-old with huge growths that hide her eyes and nose says she is 'happy to be made this way'

A women in India has spent her life without a face after doctors told her family there was nothing they could do.

Khadija Khatoon doesn’t even know if she has eyes or a nose and her mouth is a small slit on the left side of her face.

The 21-year-old is thought to have neurofibromatosis, the general name for a number of genetic conditions that cause swellings or lumps, which has severely distorted her features.

But despite her devastating deformities Khadija insists she is happy.

‘I’m made this way and I accept it graciously,’ she said.

‘I do what I can. If this is how I’m meant to be then I live with it. It’s not a matter of coping, I just live as I am.’

Khadija was born at her home, in Kolkata, West Bengal, Eastern India, to impoverished Muslim parents.

Her father Rashid Mulla, 60, and mother Amina Bibi, 50, realised something was wrong when she hadn’t opened her eyes at two-months old.

‘She was born with thick heavy eyelids and she looked different to my other children at birth but we didn’t think anything of it until we realised she couldn’t open her eyes properly,’ said Amina.

‘When we took her to the hospital she was admitted for six months and they did lots of tests but doctors eventually told us there was nothing they could do.’

Khadija’s condition worsened as she grew up and the extra skin continued to grow out of control.


‘Because the doctors told us there was nothing they could do we never went back to them,’ Amina added.

‘And as Khadija got older she refused any help.’

Khadija has never been to school and has learnt all she knows from her two brothers, Rutpaul 28, and Muzzafar, 25, and three sisters who are now married and left home.

Khadija said: ‘I don’t have any real friends but I have my family. My family is my only friend and I love them dearly. My parents are my world. I don’t talk to strangers.

‘This is who I am and this is the life I live and I fill my days sitting and thinking, talking to my mother about life and going for walks near my home. I like drinking tea. I am happy in this life.’

Although many people who have the condition inherit it from one of their parents, up to 50 per cent develop it randomly from a gene mutation before they are born.

Despite their alarming appearance, the growths and swellings – called neurofibromas and caused by a growth of cells – are not cancerous or contagious.

Khadija’s brothers work in a bakery earning 7,000 Rs (£70) a month, but her father doesn’t have full time work, managing only occasionally to sell garden fruit at the market.

Khadija hopes the government will come forward and help with the family’s finances.

She said: ‘If only the government would see my position and help me, I would like that.’

However, she insists she does not want surgery for fear of risking her life.

Her mother said: ‘Doctors told us when she was a baby that if she attempted surgery she could die, so we have lived with that fear.

‘Now that Khadija is much older she has decided herself that she doesn’t want to have surgery. She doesn’t want to risk dying.’

Dr Anirban Deep Banerjee, a neurosurgeon from Apollo Hospital, in Kolkata, said tests would confirm the illness.

He said: ‘I believe she is suffering from neurofibromatosis but to confirm we would need to do a gene test.

‘There’s a possibility she has a tumour inside her face which could be fatal.

‘Right now there is no way of knowing if she has tumour inside the extra skin and if left they could kill her.

‘If she’s willing we would need to do a lot of tests to determine how successful surgery would be.’

Local government officer, Rupak Dutta, 52, from Kolkata, flagged the situation after seeing her on the street last week.

He said he felt compelled to do something and posted a photo of Khadija on Facebook urging people to help.

‘I was walking to my office the other day when I spotted her,’ he said.

‘I’d never seen such a face. I have a 13-year-old daughter and I thought what if she was my daughter?

‘I didn’t even notice tears were falling down my cheeks. I have limited sources to help but I thought the power of social networking would surely help so I posted her photo on Facebook.’

Rupak is now in talks with local NGOs who will help Khadija meet with specialists to discuss possible surgery.

27yr-old Man Wed 70yr-old 'Pregnant' Woman

The adage ‘Age ain’t nothing but a number’ has never been as relevant as now if the recent nuptials of Ugandan musician Guvnor Ace are anything to go by. Now, another young Ugandan man is also making news for pursuing a wife old enough to have have given birth to him – and possibly even given birth to his mother.

Steven Tikubuwana, 27, is set marry Zaituni Nakanda, 70, in 2016, the New Vision reported. The couple is reported to be already living together in a single-room house owned by Nakanda.

Tikubuwana told reporters that he met his lover when he was destitute and without a home.

“I lost my job and was homeless for about two months. She welcomed me into her home. At first, she seemed afraid, but later warmed up to me,” says Tikubuwana.

Nakanda claims to be pregnant, but doctors who examined her say at Mulago hospital it is not true. She has, however, refused to believe the doctors.

Tibukwana, who is already a father of two children, said that his relatives disapprove of this union but he does not care because, unlike his first wife, Nakanda is faithful and caring.

Newest Ancient Human Relative Found

 A team of researchers and scientists has made a groundbreaking discovery of remains belonging to a species believed to be an ancient relative of human beings. This discover was made in the world’s richest fossil site of modern and extinct human species, the Cradle of Human kind

It’s believed to be the greatest archaeological discovery of early human fossils ever in Africa which may provide clarity on human beings’ origins and evolution.

A massive loot of bones found in a small, almost inaccessible chamber at the back of a cave in South Africa may be the remnants of a new species of ancient human relative. The bones were first discovered in 2013 by Witwatersrand University scientists and volunteer cavers in the Cradle of Humankind, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 50 kilometres (30 miles) northwest of Johannesburg.

To date, the expedition has extracted parts of 15 individuals from the subterranean ‘Dinaledi Chamber’ but many believe that the find is only just a tip of the proverbial iceberg. Researchers believe there may thousands more fossilised remains waiting to be discovered in the area.

Homo Naledi has a smaller frame than us (homo sapiens) and a small skull housing an ‘orange-sized’ brain. However, in some ways, H. Naledi is amazingly similar to humankind as we know it. Scientists say the hands, wrists and feet of the bodies were similar to modern humans, but the brain size and upper body were much more like the earliest humans.

Professor Lee Berger, a paleoanthropologist who led the work at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, explains the discovery in the video below:

Man Dies After 3o Days Of Fasting, Fails To Break Bible Record

Zimbabwean self-styled Messiah Khulu Reinfirst Manyuka has died from malnutrition after going without food for 30 days when he tried to emulate Jesus Christ and fast for 40 days and 40 nights.

Mr Manyuka, 73, left home on 15 June and headed into the winderness to conduct prayers, redirecting his attention to God, away from things of the earth.

He was known by his family and community at large as a very spiritual person whose faith could move mountains and his death has puzzled those close to him.

One close relative said: “He was a very spiritual man. It’s unfortunate he had to die this way. “After a month we got the sad news of his death. He was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age.”

Attempting to equal or break Jesus Christ’s record of fasting for 40 days, Mr Manyuka gave up the ghost after just a month despite having no history of illness. He was alone in the wilderness and his body was found by a stranger who then alerted the police.

According to the police, Mr Manyuka is not the first to die from fasting, as numerous other cases have been reported. A police spokesman said that they are powerless, however, to prevent members of the public from fasting.

Sexual healing Corn Flakes originally invented to promote celibacy

Here’s something that will make you never look at the traditional quick breakfast, corn flakes, in the same way again.

Did you know that corn flakes were originally invented to prevent people from having sex and masturbating?

John Harvey Kellogg, first created the cereal in the 19th century, as healthy means of controlling sex and sexual desires.

John Harvey Kellogg was a staunch Seventh – Day Adventist Christian, who was a firm believer that sex, and even worse masturbation, was unhealthy.

 

In his book, Plain Facts for Old and Young: Embracing the Natural History and Hygiene of Organic Life, which he penned in 1877, he wrote that “sex was unhealthy and polluted the mind, body and soul”.

Dr. Kellogg also expressed the belief that masturbation was the cause of many disease and health conditions including, epilepsy, acne, stiff joints and mood swings.

According to Kellogg’s theory meat and spicy foods increased sexual urges while simpler foods like controlled them.

Kellogg believed that the only way to cure sexual desire was through a balanced diet; as such Dr Kellogg and his brother William Keith created a food product that they believed would help patients struggling with sexual desires- The birth of corn flakes.

John partnered with his brother Will, who was less interested in curing sex, instead he was a businessman, he added sugar to product and went on to start the Kellogg Company.

John Kellogg was not happy with the sugar added recipe; as such the two were embattled in feud for many years.

John Kellogg was so averse to sex and sexuality that though he was married for 41-years, he never “consummated” his wife, he instead opted for adopting children.

Watch Video Of Nine Year Old Boy Married 62 Year Old Woman

Dressed in a silvery tuxedo, baby-faced Saneie clutched the hand of mother-of-five Helen Shabangu, as they repeated their vows a year on in front of 100 guests at their wedding.

As he did first time round, young Saneie Masilela controversially kissed his bride Helen Shabangu at her home in Mpumalanga, South Africa, where the latest pretend wedding took place.

The family of the boy, and Mrs Shabangu, were widely criticised after last year’s union but both were still unapologetic. ‘I didn’t have a problem with it because I know it’s what the ancestors wanted and it would make them happy,”

Saneie’s mother Patience Masilela, 47, said. Mrs Shabangu, who said the wedding was just a ritual, played down the controversy and added the two of them were ‘just playing’.

Saneie seemed more serious about the whole thing and said he married the mother- of- five because he loved her!!

Skeleton With Alien Skull Discovered

UFO watchers are in a tizz over the discovery of an ancient skeleton with an elongated skull that resembles an ALIEN.

The humanoid skeleton was unearthed from a site known as Russia’s Stonehenge and it is being heralded as proof that aliens visited Earth thousands of years ago.

However, archaeologists don’t share the same view as alien hunters, insisting that the skeleton belonged to a female from a tribe that used to bind the head to make it grow out of shape.

Researcher Maria Makurova told Russian news agency TASS: “We have found a well preserved skeleton.

“I would not exclude the possibility that the skeleton belongs to a woman from the Sarmati trible that lived in the territories of what is now modern day Ukraine, Kazakhstan and southern Russia.

“Her skull was elongated because the tribe did so by tying up the heads of their children with rope.

“It was clearly a tradition in the tribe.”

But believers in life on other planets claim that if this was the case, it was simply a way of mimicking the elongated skulls of the alien visitors.

Makurova said that archeologists were still working on theories as to why the tribe had the skull-lengthening tradition, but had so far not come up with a reason.


Scientists who exposed the photographs say they believe that the body, that was discovered at Arkaim, did not date back as far as the age of the site, that originated in 4,000 BC.

They believe the bones in fact date back to around 200-300 AD – making them less than 2,000-year-old.

The Akraim archaeological site was discovered in 1987.
