Is there anything I can do to avoid sleep paralysis? Has this got anything to do with astral projection?

    You should really see a doctor before trying to make a connection with Buddhism or any other spiritual path, of course Buddhism can help people, but maybe not the kind of help you are searching for right now. – konrad01 Jul 22 '14 at 0:31
  • Welcome to Buddhism.SE. I've put your question on hold since your question doesn't appear to have anything to do with Buddhism and so would fall outside of the scope of this site. – Hrafn Jul 22 '14 at 2:51

    While I agree with the off-topic verdict and mostly konrod01's post that one should one first consult a doctor is very good advice, but I can't help but to think that the question could become "on topic" easily if the question would include: "Do buddhist texts say anything about this?" or "could this be helped with meditation or meditation induced? – DirkM Jul 22 '14 at 8:04
  • That's a question for the meta. – Hrafn Jul 22 '14 at 20:04

I once read that meditation, yoga etc. can help to get a deeper breath and to switch more to belly breathing instead of breast breathing. Thus, those practices may potentially support your condition. Nevertheless, I think you won't find the reason or cure for it in Buddhism.
