If your scared of the old hag your probably new to this tounge2

If you read something scary or you get some info on it from experience, it usually takes a few days before your mind gets used to it. So maybe give it another shot in a few days will help.. you'll probably lose your fear by then colgate

I hope for you
the best, Ahmad

Daita, the best way to conquer this old hag is to realise, that whatever it might be, it has not yet done anymore harm to anyone then scaring them! So if you arent scared, then it will go away automatically smile

Its nothing to do with WILD its just that sometimes people wake up in their sleep, cant move and are pretty sure something is with em. It has happened to me once....

Just be glad shadow people arent stalking your family, thats a problem me best mate has.

I've had SP once, and I wasn't trying WILD or anything, it just happened. Basically I was lying there as I big ol' werewolf monster thing came into my room. He bent over right in my face, and I was like, "OMG." PRETTY SCARY.

Old Hag isn't a real thing, there isn't actually a demon sitting on your bed. What is happening is that for one reason or another you woke up in the middle of a dream and are still in SP. When you wake up you are sort of half way between awake and dreaming. So you have hallucinations and because you're scared becuase you can't move you tend to imagine evil things. Then the fact that you can't move only adds to your fear.

Also, if you ever have Old Hag since you are really close to the dream state it is a great opportunity for an LD. Just stop freaking out, relax and wait for your dream to come back.

WILD seems like a really awesome technique, Ive only tried it one time and was almost succesfull, got to see weird imagery stuff. but about this old hag syndrome, thats what makes me more nervous about it, and the only reason why Im rethinking to do this. I know the shadow/demon wont hurt me, but the fact that there is a "demon" in my room, sitting in my bed and all that is SCARY enough.

so Id like to know how you all have dealt with this "demon" and if you have had any bad experiences with it. also if there is a way to prevent the old hag from appearing. man I sound like a wuzz.... lol

and also... why the hell does he appear???!?!?!


There is a guy on another forum I visit (that has nothing to do with LD or ND) but the subject came up. Seems he practices WILD and he has the same problem. He even sees this "shadow creature" in his dreams. Could it be something physical or meta physical?

Ah yes, the old had. When I first started to WILD she scared the hell out of me. Only because I read a topic here and was DAMN sure I was going to experience it.

Well, here's what happened to me.

I woke up in SP and I could have sworn there was a hag on my chest. I kept closing my eyes and repeated to my self something like "the hag isn't real, the hag isn't real"

Well I open my eyes and I see my dad crying... I wrote this down but I don't have my DJ on me. I've never feared the hag again.

The old hag is what ever you want it to be. But trust me, you are over hyping it. I can assure you 100% that you will not experience the old hag, just tell your self it isn't real and if you do see it then go Jeffery Dhamer and eat her. She'd be so scared of you she better not come back.

At least that was my plan when I saw the hag... but unfortunatly I never got to encounter her.

Well, old hag is not exactly like that, having SP it is well paralysis, and second presence of entity in the room, this presence is not always on your chest, and it hasn't always visual form.
I had some expirience with it and it is real in that moment, many people had this too, it is connected with sleeping on the back.
Hint: if you think that was a ghost try feel the bed beside you if its warm that you had an hag encounter if it is noram ltemperature that you were halucinating.(this with a grain of salt it is just belief, me personaly hasn't check this)

Yea... I've heard about Old Hag being connected with sleeping on your back. If you normally do that and are truly worried about Old Hag try sleeping on your back.

PostPosted: Wed 22 Dec, 2004  Reply with quote

I didnt know untill recently "It" had a name. I had a experiance about three mouths ago with old hag. I was lying on my stomack, and I woke up feeling this pressure on my back, and it was hard to breath. I was so scared I didnt want to look at what was on my back. Im looking forward to old hags next visit. What causes old hag?

that depends of the approach you like most, scientific, thay are trying to tell you feel yourself as somebody else.
If you want unofficially, well, all sort of incubi sucubi, wicca, demons, night terror, plaenty of them.
I had some SP problems with feeling of entity in the room, and that entity not human, it was very unique expirience, my brother too had exactly same about the same time. I am not sure if it was the exact night but within month or less, we were in different towns during that year.
