The Old Hag Came in Threes

The “Old Hag” or “Witch on Your Back” has absolutely nothing to do with seizures or paralysis.

Basements have always made me feel uneasy. When they are dark it seems as if someone is there. When I was 13 I moved into the basement despite my protests, it was a brand-new house my parents said. Nothing could go wrong. Weird minor things happened. I ignored them because it was a basement it was normal for these things to happen in my mind. Smoke out of the corner of your eye. Shutting the door hearing it latch to find its still open…

I was painting my bedroom so I slept in the unfinished spare room. I don’t know how many nights went by before this happened but I didn’t know what to do when it did. I woke up tingly from head to toe. I tried to move my arms but it was like they were pinned by my side. There …

Repeated Instances of Shadow Figure and Paralysis

Around 3 years ago, while still living with my parents near Chesterfield, I awoke one night to see what looked like a black figure stood next to my bed. I could see a black outline of an average size figure, but I could also very clearly see a face. It appeared to be a man, and he had a rather sinister look on his face. He was just starring at me. I jumped out of my bed but as soon as I did so, the figure had gone. I passed it off as it was just me seeing things…

About a year later, still in the same room, I again woke up to see a hooded shadow figure at the end of the bed. I began to panic, as it seemed as if I could not physically move at all, like was glued to the bed. I attempted to call out to my parents but I couldn’t even speak. I …

Scary Sleep Paralysis Experience

Okay well lets start from the beginning: I have been into tracking spirits since I was 10, my old house was haunted and I had been scared; my sister thinks the spirit followed me or since I live near a cemetery that it may be something from there.

One night I was having a really weird dream and in that dream was: “me, my mom, and my sister all talking in a house that wasn’t ours, it was someone else’s and it had mirrors everywhere, while my sister and mom were talking I looked over to a mirror to see a little girl in a white dress and white hair, she was very pale, she ran across the hallway from what I saw, then I looked away, she was gone. Then I looked back, she was there.”

I then awoke from the dream and I don’t know what was happening but I couldn’t move or breathe. I could move my …

My Old Hag Experience

I suffer from insomnia, with 3 boys 10 and under, this wont do, so I take a sleeping pill that knocks me out for 12 hours without fail. Once it kicks in and I fall asleep all 3 of my boys can rough house over me jump on me and I don’t waken (it has been tried thank goodness for my husband).

One night in a deep sleep I had a nightmare. I screamed at myself to wake up which I’ve done before due to lots of nightmares in the past. Only this time, I had to scream at myself to wake up several times. When I finally awoke I opened my eyes and couldn’t move at all. I felt like I had pins and needles throughout my entire body. I felt pressure on my chest, and I saw a dark shadow where it was I couldn’t make out what it was, but instead my eyes were drawn to what …

Sleep Paralysis Demon – Biting Back

I’ve suffered from this strange affliction for years. I never really see the thing in the room with me. I lie there aware but motionless. It’s skin is a dark, dark blue. Sometimes there are many. They are short. They seem to be doing or trying to do something to me. Like some type of surgery. I can’t cry out or move. One time I could talk and was begging them to stop. They just looked at me like a dumb animal and continued.

I wake up scared and in pain. I try to tell myself it was a dream but I can remember everything in such detail. I wake up covered in sweat and mentally drained. Unable and afraid to sleep, I stay up with the lights on.

One time though, it was happening again, it was near my side and seemed to have some type of bag. I couldn’t move. I was so angry. But, I felt movement …

Completely Powerless to Move and an Evil Presence

One night several months ago I was just about to fall asleep, I was not in a particularly good or relaxed mood but when I got into my bed I felt a warm comfort encompass me and immediately felt myself starting to fall asleep. Looking back on it the feeling was much more than falling asleep, it was loosing consciousness.

I remember thinking how black the darkness was in my eyelids for a moment before I was slipping away. Then a few things started to happen simultaneously; there was a slight ringing in my ears, and my body started to shake (I’ve often felt this before, very strange, physical whole body vibration), and very quickly did both of these increase. The ringing became louder in increments as the vibration turned into an all out violent shake that was shaking me in the air and the ringing became and unbearable, unworldly screeching painful thing. At the same time as these things …

My First Sleep Paralysis Episode?

I put a question mark at the end because I’ve never experienced sleep paralysis before. I think a few nights ago was the first time…

Before I went to bed I watched Ghost Adventures (the one with Zak Bagans) I turned the TV off at midnight and went to bed. I fell asleep pretty quickly. I’d had some pretty horrible dreams shortly after. I don’t remember them, I just know they were freaky.

As the last dream ended, I felt as if I had woken up, but my eyes were still closed. I heard a man in my ear laughing kinda demonically. I tried to cover my ears and curl into a ball, but my arms and legs wouldn’t move. So, I tried to scream and tell him to stop, but all I heard were whispers. That’s when I really woke up. It was early morning, and I remembered everything, but as a dream without pictures.

I looked around my …

Has Anyone Experienced Sleep Paralysis like Me?

Hello I’m interested to know if anyone has experienced the same as me and their take on this?

About two years ago I moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend and had my first sleep paralysis experience. I remember lying in bed asleep on my back and “waking up” to realize I could not move my body, not even my eyes, and I could not breathe whatsoever. The only thing I had was my mind wide awake and the panic of not being able to move or breathe, I literally thought I was going to die. I remember desperately trying to move my hand, I began tapping with my hand on the bed and my boyfriend shook me and woke me up. He said I was making strange noises and he thought I was having some sort of panic attack. I also felt the heavy sensation pushing down on my chest stopping me from breathing. When I finally woke …

Shadow Figure Attacked Me

Firstly, this story is about my first experience of being attacked by demon / spirit (I don’t know and I hope it’ll be the last as well…) It happened about 3 years ago when I was still 13.

I was sleeping as usual that night, but then something went wrong. I felt like I was already awoke but everything was still so dark, so I decided to went back to sleep again (but that was my biggest mistake). When I went back to sleep again, I felt like something is crawling up from my bed towards me. I kinda ignored that at first because I am so sleepy at that time and because I’m wearing blanket so I thought that it was just the wind from my Air Conditioner.

By the time I realized that it was not the wind but rather something different, it has almost reached my face. I don’t know what is that cause my room was …

Waking Up Paralyzed

I’ve been browsing and reading through many experiences others have posted here about sleep paralysis, but couldn’t find one similar to mine. I’d like to share my own experience with whoever is interested. This also never happened again since, and I hope it does not, as it was a very frightening experience.

One night I decided that my own bedroom is too cold to sleep in, especially because there is a balcony connected directly to my room, so I decided to sleep in the living room, on the leather couch where I’d be able to conserve my body heat better.

I woke up, or rather I became conscious and aware that I was no longer dreaming. For a few moments I had to question myself where the loud noises of birds twittering away was coming from, or even if it was real. Their loud twittering sounded like there was a tree or bush filled with them, and twittering rather loudly, …

Weird Sleep Paralysis

When I was about 8 weeks old my parents said they saw a young woman over my cot, she vanished when they tried to look at her… well sort of vanished, she looked at them in a disappointed way apparently then left the room. The next day I was taken to the hospital and put into intensive care because my breathing was completely messed up and I needed help to breathe.

About when I was 13 I was moved from the smallest room to a larger room in the house as my sister left for college, this is when I began waking in the middle of the night and seeing a dark robed figure surrounded in a strange black mist that made it difficult to make out their figure. When this happens I am unable to breathe or move or talk or even look away. The figure will always start to come closer until it is looming over me at …

Sleep Paralysis vs Old Hag

Two nights ago I had the “Old Hag” experience. I have had this experience half a dozen or more times in my life. I understand the sleep paralysis theory, but why does it always involve some sinister presence and a feeling of impending doom? Why not a giggling Baywatch babe laying on me?

If it is a hallucination while coming out of REM sleep it seems like 50% of the time the hallucination should be positive, however that has not been my experience and that’s not what I’m reading here. If the people explaining it from a scientific standpoint haven’t actually experienced it, I don’t think they have a realistic perspective on the actual experience.

Regardless of whether it was a hallucination or real, here’s what I experienced -

I was sleeping face down and woke up to the sensation of being forced down in my bed, actually sinking deeper into the mattress. I’m 6’6″ tall and 240 …
