My life was a dumpster fire, so I turned to witchcraft.
Dive into the nightmares of sleep paralysis also known as Old Hag Syndrome. Cultures across the world have created similar folklore surrounding this physiological phenomenon despite being separated by space and time.
Suffering from sleep paralysis is more common than you think. And more people have seen the horrors of the hag than likely want to admit it. It makes you wonder if there isn’t something more to the story. Something real.
Is the Old Hag a witch? A demon? Something else?
Timothy Grieve-Carlson weighs in with his thoughts, and Rachel digs into the idea of the Biblical Lilith as the progenitor of the Old Hag. Carl Jung also throws his two cents in with Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious.
This Halloween Special is full of demonic tricks and treats.
