Sleep Paralysis - Old hag Syndrome Various Names

Original Poster: FLorida Gal's at Talkparanormal.com

Sleep Paralysis ss known under many names. Commonly called the old hag syndrome, and other names depending on the various parts of the world.

The list below is from Wikipedia. This proves that this issue is a problem worldwide, and it appears the whole world seems to think there is something evil about the experience. I realize there are different stages of sleep such as REM 1 - REM 4. (Rapid eye movement) The problem is REM type 3 which is the time when most dreams occur, and your muscles are temporarily paralyzed is when you are already in a deep sleep which takes quite some time.

The evil presence people are feeling is right about the time you feel like you are going to fall a sleep. The inbetweeen stage between wake and sleep.

Whatever it is and what ever you want to call it, it has been around a long time and scientist can no longer ignore it as something natural. There are debates all over the web regarding as such, and the alarming rate of increase in reports of people experiencing these terrifying visits. I really recommend the David Hufford The Terror that comes in the night book, which is listed at the bottom of my blog from Amazon. The interviews with so many people experiencing the same black robed figure is amazing.

In Cambodian, Laotian, and Thai culture, sleep paralysis is called pee umm and khmout sukkhot.

In Hmong culture, sleep paralysis describes an experience called "dab tsog" or "crushing demon.

In Vietnamese culture, sleep paralysis is referred to as "ma đè", meaning "held down by a ghost" or "bóng đè", meaning "held down by a shadow".

In Chinese culture, sleep paralysis is widely known as (pinyin: guǐ yā shēn) or (pinyin: guǐ yā chuáng), which literally translate into "ghost pressing on body" or "ghost pressing on bed." A more modern term is (pinyin: mèng yǎn); notice that the character (pinyin: yǎn) is composed of(pinyin: yàn), "to detest", and (pinyin: guǐ), "ghost, demon".

In Japanese culture, sleep paralysis is referred to as kanashibari literally "bound or fastened in metal," from kane "metal" and shibaru" to bind, to tie, to fasten"). This term is occasionally used by English speaking authors to refer to the phenomenon both in academic papers and in pop psych literature.

In Philippine culture, "bangungut", or sudden unexplained death syndrome, has traditionally been attributed to nightmares.[23] People who have claimed to survive such nightmares have reported experiencing the symptoms of sleep paralysis.

In the Muslim culture of South Asia (Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian Muslims), sleep paralysis is considered an encounter with evil jinns and demons. It is also assumed that it is caused by the black magic performed by enemies and jealous persons. Spells and Curses could also result in a ghoul haunting a person. Some homes and locations are also alleged to be haunted by these satanic beings.

In Tamil and Sri Lankan Culture, this particular phenomenon is referred to as 'Amuku Be" or 'Amuku Pei' meaning "the ghost that forces one down.

In Malay of Malay Peninsula, sleep paralysis is known as 'kena tindih' (or 'ketindihan' in Indonesia), which means "being pressed Incidents are commonly considered to be the work of a malign agency; occurring in what are explained as blind spots in the field of vision, they are reported as demonic figures.

I have a lot of information both scientifically and supernaturally, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you need help getting through this very terrifying experience.
