The Old Hag- The Missing Link

In April 1997 I went back home to Illinois. I visited with family and friends.  The house I grew up in, I refused to stay in. So I made the decision to stay with a friend for a few days and then my grandma's.  I would come to regret this decision.

My grandfather, a Christian man, had warned me as a young child that my grandmother was possessed by demons.  His words stuck with me, but I never truly believed him.  

And so it happened one night, staying in the bedroom that was my mom's as a child.  I laid in the bed afraid to fall asleep.  I felt an evil presence.  As I lay there, I looked up at the ceiling and saw three black masses swirling around.  One by one they attacked me.  It felt like a sudden zapping of my energy.

I began to pray to God. I remained watchful, terrified that if I fell asleep something even worse would happen to me.  The dark masses continued their attacks.  I am not sure how much time passed.  I did eventually fall asleep.  I did not tell a soul what had happened.

After many years of research and experience, I have come to the conclusion that what I experienced is all related to the Old Hag.  It seems to me that from my visit back home something followed me back to Arizona.  

Looking back I realize two things: Firstly, that there was a battle for my soul.  Secondly, family curses are real.  So in conclusion it is now my firm belief that not only are places haunted, but people are too.

Demonology 101:

~Entities feed off of negative emotions and family.
~Entities that drain a life force may be dormat for a long time, waiting for a energy boost from a human.
~They are capable of following a person.
~You have to remain positive and vigilant in keeping your family bonded, this diverts the entity.

The Old Hag, Part 2

From the Summer of 1998

I feel a presence in my room.  It feels familiar.  I think to myself it has found me.  I am terrified.  I have the distinct feeling that it is going to harm me.  I am paralyzed unable to move or speak.  I tell God I need him.  I surrender. I give my will over to God. It then enters my body.  Moments later I see it near my ceiling as a ball of light.  Then it implodes on itself.  I know it is over.

This encounter differs from my childhood experiences with the Old Hag. It has changed into a sexual encounter that at first its presence is evil; and then leaves as a light of love. 
Sexual encounters with "supernaturals" are referred to as an incubus.  Incubus means an explicitly erotic experience with a demon. It is my belief that it was the Old Hag.  With my faith in God; the evil dissolved and changed into a light of love.  I knew when it was over that I would never be visited again by the Old Hag.

I am the one who is not and God is the one who is.  Exodus 3:14

The Old Hag

When I was about 7 or 8 is when the attacks began. It would begin where I couldn't move, as if someone or something was holding me down. I would try to yell for my mom, but was unable to speak. I felt pressure on my chest and felt hands around my neck (like I was being choked). When it was happening I would try to wake up. I was terrified as I couldn't see anything in the room with me. I don't know how long the attack lasted and I would often wake up in the morning to find myself and all my bedding on the floor. This happened several times over the years.

I've come to learn that this is known as the Old Hag Syndrome. In many cultures it's believed that a nightmare spirit (witch) would torment children at night. The scientific community calls it sleep paralysis (sp). This is when you have temporary paralysis of the body. It's explained away as a hallucination. It doesn't change the fact that it felt real to me.

When I moved away from home at 15, I thought I was free from the Old Hag. Little did I know that again she would follow me to Phoenix. I wouldn't be visited by her until I was 22. I'll write another blog about it later.
