In this article we look at seven of the most commonly reported causes of the terrible symptoms of sleep paralysis.
Top 7 Causes of Sleep Paralysis
1.) The most common causes of sleep paralysis we have dealt with is people that have in some way been involved with various levels, even very light level occult practices. Things such as Ouiji boards, tarot cards, most types of meditation, spirit channeling, even obsessive research about the occult and/or UFO’s can be an open doorway for some people. Generally, the deeper the person goes into the occult the more “doors” they open, and the more authority the demons gain over them, which can lead to severe physical attacks and even abductions in some cases. It is important to realize that the demons gain more authority over you the deeper you go, the more you “embrace” the experience. That is, they have a keen interest in a person becoming more active in the occult. To learn more about this watch “Demystifying the Occult” on the videos page.
2.) Another of the causes of sleep paralysis is some form of a generational “doorway” that has been opened for the person, usually by a parent or grandparent. Most often when a grandfather had been involved in high level Masonic rituals. This can also happen if parents or grandparents were involved in the occult on some level. This is usually the issue with people who have had sleep paralysis since they were very young.
4.) Another of the rarer causes of sleep paralysis is that there is a highly demonized object in the room. This can be crystals, books, or statues. Really just about anything can be demonized, even if the person attaching the demonic presence thinks they are only attaching “energy” or something else. As I said it is more rare, but still is possible. Deut. 7:25-26, Joshua 7:1, 1 Corinthians 10:20-21, Deuteronomy 32:17, Leviticus 17:7
5.) Severe anger can also be a cause of sleep paralysis. Ephesians 4:26 says: In your anger do not sin, Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
6.) There have been reports that sexual immorality has led to sleep paralysis.
7.) There are very rare cases where, usually Satanists, either in a group or by themselves, have reported using astral travel to enter into the room of certain people at night (usually for sexual purposes.) This can cause similar symptoms to sleep paralysis but usually this should be obvious that it is a human, and not just an evil spirit pretending to be a human.
