    I keep having these dreams where I am having a perfectly normal day then I wake up in someone else’s room(always different rooms ) in someone else’s bed. I try to get up out of bed but I can’t move I try to go back to sleep but I can’t so I lay there staring at the wall but then I start to panic as my body really wants to get up but it can’t I feel like I’m lashing my body round trying to wake up and I can’t speak so I’m maki g a frantic humming noise as if my mouth is taped up. I become very aware that I’m still dreaming and I start trying to wake myself up eventually I come round  and ask my partner was I moving at all or making noise and she always says “no” even though in the dream I  could really feel myself fighting to wake myself up but as soon as I close my eyes to sleep again I’m back in the same room with my eyes open and  this can happen up to 10-15 times in a night  and then a few days later I will have the same dream it it all will be a different room . I have done some research and it seems like it’s a mixture of a waking  loop and sleep paralysis but I don’t know enough about  either does anyone else have similar experiences?

    This happens to me every so often.  Sometimes another being is present, sometimes I'm alone.  Sometimes I wake up out of the dream, feeling sheer anxiety.  Sometimes I stay in the dream, and it passes or I end up wrestling with some monster from under the floorboards. 
    The moving from room to room suggests there is a lack of agency.  I personally see the bed as an intimate place, with oneself and with others.
    Do you do any breathing exercises before you go to sleep, or any other calming activities before bed? I've found that lavender tea and lavender essential oil are really helpful with this stuff.
    Also, it might sound woo woo, but I encourage acting like there is an external force doing this to you, and to get angry at it for affecting you this way.  Even if its simply reinforcing to yourself that you don't want to be stuck in a loop of paralysis, it might help jump you out of a rut.  Sometimes when I am having a bad dream I pretend that someone else is playing a bad prank on me, and I start (internally) yelling at that person.  It typically makes the anxiety dreams subside, whether because there is truly another person/entity or because feeling angry reassigns me to feeling power (rather than fear or anxiety) in tandem with my anger.
    I hope this helps.

    Yes.  I have.  It's been suggested that we are multidimensional beings existing in many realities at once.

    If so, when we lose Consciousness in this world, we can find ourselves Conscious in another reality. 

    The body you find yourself in is you, in another reality.  

    Next time you find yourself in this place, maybe it's a chance for you to explore beyond that body.

    You say you feel paralyzed.  The physical body and physical movements will not work.  You have to use your mind and think what you want.  

    You can also ask for assistance as your higher aspect of self is always there to assist you!

    To move past the paralysis you need to engage your astral self.

    Meditate on the situation and the thoughts you have after reading this.

    Look forward to hearing about your astral adventures you appear to be on the brink of.

    Dream on and beyond!
