Why is it so hard to believe that things may not be as they seem? Behind the frozen smiles and empty eyes lie the decaying dreams of a better world. Where once was a promise of fairness and quiet noble ideals, is replaced with fear that grasps with rabid desperation for fictional pasts, tribal gods and all-to-real prejudices. And freedom, sweet freedom, its desire demands a watchful eye as treason blooms from the root of our forefathers. Fear and security are the new mandate. With fear comes control. From control comes power. This is what we have to offer our bearers of new light. Is this the legacy we want to leave after our lives have disappeared into dust; A bold, free future, or a shattered promise of yesterdays forgotten dreams?

A Treasure Hunters Dream Come True!
SPOOKY TREASURE TROVES
FIND OUT THE STRANGE CONNECTION BETWEEN UFOS, GHOSTS, CURSED PIECES OF EIGHT AND THE SUPERNATURAL
Everyone has fantasized about finding buried treasure. It’s a child’s dream and many a grown person’s obsession. Thousands own metal detectors and regularly scan the shore line, creek beds and out of the way mountain crevices looking for that proverbial treasure trove of all time.
In the summer of 2015, a salvage company recovered treasure worth $4.5 million off the coast of Florida, a fortune in gold and jewels that had sunk with a Spanish galleon in 1715. In an amazing case of synchronicity, the vast riches were recovered 300 years to the day – July 31 – after the shipwreck. The CEO of the salvage company told the media at the time that he felt a mysterious “energy” had wanted the treasure found and led them to it on that precise day
But there is more. Inside the pages of this book, the reader will be given the opportunity to unlock the mystery to discovering some fabulous fortune that has lain hidden away for decades, perhaps even centuries. Join Tim Beckley, Sean Casteel, Paul Eno, Dr. Nandor Fodor, Scott Corrales, Preston Dennett and Paul Dale Roberts as they provide guidance in searching for million of dollars or more in gold, diamonds, rare doubloons or old art masterpieces.
But above all else you will learn of the “supernatural treasure hunting connection” that includes the appearance of UFOs, ghosts, spirits of deceased Native Americans and even Bigfoot, all of whom are either guarding vast treasures or have been known to lead deserving souls to the end of a rainbow and vast wealth.
volume will surely be a prize possession of anyone interested in the
connection between UFOs, ghosts, curses and the paranormal. Or anyone
just looking for a spooky story that they can relate to.

NASA Used Codename Santa Claus For UFOs
Donna Hare claims to have worked for computer and engineering contractor Philco Ford during the early 1970s, in NASA's photo labs on and off the site of the group's HQ.
Ms Hare claims to have had a high level of security clearance and was able to access parts of the building known as 'Building Eight', which "gave her contact with a series of high ranking officials who leaked her information in secret over lunch".
She claims in a video testimony to have learnt NASA officials who wanted to speak out about the existence of UFOs were threatened with the loss of their pensions and forced to sign gagging orders.
She even alleged one of her contacts who leaked her information had "disappeared off the face of the Earth".
But the most outlandish claim made by Ms Hare was she was informed by sources that during one of the moon landings astronauts had found three UFOs had landed there when they touched down.
She said one contact worked in a quarantine area where landing astronauts were debriefed after they returned home.
She said: "This man was in quarantine with them and was part of their debriefing.
"He said a lot of then talked about their experience of these crafts following them.
"I believe there were three of them on the moon when they landed and I believe that the code word for them was was Santa Claus.
"Some (staff) that wanted to talk were threatened and if they wanted to talk they had to sign papers not to talk or they had their retirement taken away,
"I started asking questions of certain people. I would take them away from the site and we would go to lunch.
"Alone they would tell me things and then say if I ever said they had they would swear I was lying.
"One gentleman I knew who said there were the crafts on the moon just disappeared, I can't find him."
In a separate claim, she said a security guard told her he was forced to burn UFO pictures by mystery armed men, who struck him with the butt of a gun for looking at them.
She also claims to have seen a UFO in a NASA image being airbrushed out by technicians.
She said: "One gentleman I had been friends with pointed my attention to an open area of a mosaic, a set of panels put together to form a larger picture.
It was a satellite aerial looking down. With a smile on his face he said look over there.
"I saw a round white dot and asked is it a dot of emulsion.
"Grinning he said a dot of emulsion doesn't leave round shadows, then I saw a round shadow over trees."I said is this a ufo - he was smiling i can't tell you that but Ii knew he meant it was, but he couldn't tell me
"He said well we always have to airbrush them out before they sell them to the public.
"I was just amazed they had a protocol in place for getting rid of ufos in pictures."
Ms Hare insists her accounts are true, but several people posting on UFO forums claim to have debunked her stories.
Writing on cosmoquest.org, rkeller, gave his opinion.
He said: "Philco Ford was an important contractor in the Apollo days and afterwards as Ford Aerospace into the Shuttle Era.
"While she has claimed she was involved with photo-processing, all of Philco-Ford's work was for Engineering and Operational support for Mission Control and computer hardware and software for mission control. In other words, she had no access to the photography group at NASA."
DJW001 posted on abobvetopsecret.com: "All that she says is that someone told her that a particular room is where they airbrushed the UFOs out of pictures. It may have been intended as a joke at her expense. She has managed to turn that joke into a career."
And a post on Jamesoburg.org concluded: "I believe it was impossible then or now for NASA to produce Earth surface images with sufficient detail to show a tree and its shadow. A vigorous search by several UFO buffs recently for such pictures in NASA's archives failed to locate any."
Recently, the YouTube channel Paranormal Crucible released footage claiming to have been taken during the Apollo 15 mission that shows what appears to be a disc-shaped object near the Apollo astronauts. A blurb posted with the video said: "Remarkable footage has emerged of a possible flying saucer observing the Apollo 15 crew on the moon.
"The footage which was filmed by astronaut Jim Irwin appears to show a saucer shaped craft hovering on the lunar surface, possibly keeping a close watch on the Apollo 15 mission."

Where Do Coincidences Come From?
By John Blake
(CNN)Royce Burton was teaching history at a New Jersey university when he decided to tell his class about a frightening experience he had as a young man.
He was a Texas Ranger, patrolling the Rio Grande in 1940, when he got lost in a canyon after dark. He tried to climb out but lost his balance just as he neared the top of a cliff. Suddenly Joe, a fellow Ranger, appeared and hoisted him up to safety with his rifle strap. Burton thanked Joe for saving his life but lost contact with him after both men enlisted in the military during World War II.
Burton was in the middle of sharing his story when an elderly man appeared in the doorway. It was Joe, the fellow Ranger. He had tracked Burton down 25 years later and walked into his classroom at precisely the moment Burton was recounting his rescue.
"I'll have Joe finish the rest of the story," Burton said, without missing a beat as the astonished classroom witnessed the two men's reunion.
You could call Burton's story an amazing coincidence, but James Hollis calls it something else: "synchronicity" -- a meaningful coincidence.
Synchronicity is a term coined by Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist and mystic. It is the occurrence of two events that have no apparent cause and effect relation but are nonetheless connected by meaning, often in profound ways.
Synchronicity is an odd term, but it's a familiar experience to many people. Someone dreams of a childhood friend he hasn't heard from in years and gets a phone call from that friend the next day. Another person loses his mother and hears her favorite song on the radio on the day of her funeral. Someone facing a terrible personal crisis is the accidental recipient of a book that seems written just for him or her.
"Everybody has stories like that," says Hollis, a Jungian analyst and author who knew Burton and shares his story in the book "Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives." "We live in a haunted world where invisible energies are constantly at work."
Yet few people understand how synchronicities work. Why do they happen, where do they come from, and does their existence suggest that everyone's life is somehow part of some cosmic drama shaped by unseen hands?
Or, as critics insist, is synchronicity simply psychological narcissism, the result of a person's desperate need to find meaning in odd connections that anyone would notice if he paid attention.
Those are the kind of questions that scientists, skeptics and psychologists have long asked about striking coincidences. The concept of synchronicity, though, is moving mainstream. Google the term and 5.4 million references pop up. Facebook has a page devoted to synchronicity. And there are people who collect synchronicity stories like kids used to collect baseball cards. They catalog them in pieces such as "29 Mind-Blowing Coincidences You Won't Believe Happened" or "20 Amazing Coincidences."
Even those who have never heard of synchronicity are influenced by it, some say. If you flip open the Bible and randomly pick out the first Scripture you see for guidance, or you pay attention to premonitions or astrology, you are relying to some degree on the principles of synchronicity.
"The interest in synchronicity is exploding," says Gibbs A. Williams, a psychoanalyst and author of the book "Demystifying Meaningful Coincidences."
"Many synchronicity disciples get off on this stuff as if they were junkies craving their next fix."
Of plum pudding and golden beetles
Synchronicity groupies have their favorite stories. Some have been cited so much it's difficult to know if they're true or apocryphal -- or a combination of both.
Consider the infamous tale of Emile Deschamps and his plum pudding.
In 1805, Deschamps, a French poet, was treated to plum pudding by Monsieur de Fortgibu, a stranger he met in a restaurant. A decade later, Deschamps goes to a Paris restaurant and orders plum pudding again. The waiter tells him the last dish has been served to someone else -- a Monsieur de Fortgibu.
The story gets odder. In 1832, Deschamps goes to a diner where someone offers him plum pudding. He jokingly tells his friends that the only thing missing is de Fortgibu -- and de Fortgibu, now an elderly man, promptly wobbles into the diner.
No wonder Jung was drawn to such stories of synchronicity. He was fascinated by strange experiences. He was a lifelong believer in the occult and claimed to have personal encounters with the paranormal.
Jung's belief in synchronicity was, in fact, reinforced by a synchronistic encounter that was as eerie as Deschamps' plum pudding story.
Jung was treating a highly educated young woman who he thought relied too much on her intellect. He said she was "psychologically inaccessible" and concluded that a breakthrough could only come if something unexpected and irrational turned up during their sessions.
One day the woman told Jung she had a strange dream the night before in which someone had handed her an expensive piece of jewelry, a "golden scarab" shaped like a beetle. While the woman was sharing the dream, Jung heard a gentle tapping on an office window behind him. It was a large insect trying to get into the darkened office.
Jung opened the window and caught the insect when it flew in. It was a golden scarabaeid beetle, whose gold-green color resembled the color of the golden scarab jewelry.
"Here is your scarab," Jung said, handing it to the stunned woman.
The moment proved to be a breakthrough for the woman, Jung claimed. His decision to use the synchronistic moment to forge a breakthrough with his patient would become a model for other Jungian therapists. Their message: Synchronistic moments don't happen just to inspire wonder; they arrive to force people to reconsider their values.
Why synchronicity happens
Whenever an improbable coincidence occurs, says Hollis, the Jungian analyst, people should look for the possible message in that moment.
"We should ask if there is another dimension to it (the striking coincidence) that would ask of me, what change of attitude and what insight I might draw from this," he says. "Is there a task there that is corrective to my way of looking at things?"
In his book "Hauntings," Hollis explained the message behind the former Texas Ranger's improbable reunion. Hollis befriended him when both taught at the same university.
"For my colleague, who is a sensate 'facts are facts kind of guy,' the incident helped expand his psychic life by bringing a bit of mystery into it," Hollis wrote. "After his sensibility enlarged, he was even more aware of the presence of invisible energies amid his tangible world."
Some believe that people can train themselves to summon synchronistic moments.
Alex Marcoux, author of "Lifesigns: Tapping the Power of Synchronicity, Serendipity and Miracles," says that the "Universe" sends synchronistic signs to help people live more fulfilling lives. Marcoux, who insists that Universe be capitalized because of her spiritual beliefs, offers a five-step process on how to recognize and learn from synchronicity: Ask with intention, sense life's experiences, unravel the Universe's clues, validate the answer and express gratitude.
Marcoux says she's relied on synchronistic moments to help her make decisions on everything from the plotlines of her novels to her finances and relationships.
When asked how she can discern if a coincidence is a message or just a random moment, she says there are three indicators: The event is meaningful, improbable and she's hit with a sudden realization. The moment feels like an epiphany.
"The hair goes up on the back of your neck," she says.
Jung introduced the concept of synchronicity to Western audiences with the publication of his book "Synchronicity -- An Acausal Connecting Principle." But the concept predates him by thousands of years. As Jung pointed out, the concept forms the foundation for an ancient Chinese text used for divination called the I Ching, or the Book of Changes. Jungians say advances in quantum physics and chaos theory also reinforced the principles of synchronicity.
Why synchronicity could be a hoax
Some critics say synchronicity is not the result of an otherworldly influence. It's self-generated -- it's produced by people looking for answers to personal problems, says Williams, author of "Demystifying Meaningful Coincidences."
Williams says synchronicities are neither random events nor coded messages from a transcendent divinity. Striking coincidences often occur when people are experiencing a psychological gridlock in their life.
A person who swears off drinking, for example, may turn on the television set the same day of their resolution and see a movie about Alcoholics Anonymous. When one resolves to solve a personal problem, one will often see a "resonant message" embedded in a moment, he says.
"You're looking for patterns. It's like you're on your own psychological scavenger hunt. You look for pieces to fit the puzzle. The completed pattern is experienced as a synchronicity."
Some critics of synchronicity deny these events occur at all.
Skeptics cite one of the most frequently touted examples of synchronicity: the strange parallels between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy.
Both presidents had seven letters in their last names and were elected to office 100 years apart -- 1860 and 1960. Both were assassinated on a Friday in the presence of their wives, Lincoln in Ford's Theatre and Kennedy in an automobile made by Ford. Both were felled by assassins who went by three names, John Wilkes Booth and Lee Harvey Oswald. And both were succeeded by vice presidents who were Southern Democrats with the last name Johnson.
What does it mean?
Absolutely nothing, wrote Bruce Martin in an essay for Skeptical Inquirer magazine. Mathematical probability ensures that some coincidences will occur, but people assign less probability to coincidences than they deserve. Probability ensures that in a random selection of 23 people, he says, there is a 50% chance that at least two of those people celebrate the same birth date.
Synchronicity supporters also ignore facts that challenge the meaning of their coincidences, he says. Take Lincoln and Kennedy: They shared similarities, but they were also born and died in different months, states and at different ages. What about those differences?
"For any two people with reasonably eventful lives it is possible to find coincidences between them," Martin wrote in the essay "Coincidences: Remarkable or Random?"
"Two people meeting at a party often find some striking coincidence between them, but what it is -- birthdate, hometown, etc. -- is not predicted in advance."
Hollis, the Jungian analyst, readily concedes some coincidences exist apart from synchronicity. But he says there are other odd coincidences that go beyond mathematical possibility. You just can't explain them away. He says these strange stories reveal "the spectral presence" of some kind of energy that deliberately infiltrates people's daily lives.
Consider one of the strangest synchronicity stories ever told:
In 1938, Joseph Figlock, a street sweeper, was cleaning an alley in Detroit when a baby fell from an open, fourth-floor window. The baby hit Figlock in the head, the impact saving the child's life. A year later, Figlock was sweeping another alley when another baby fell from a fourth-floor window -- onto Figlock. Same fate. Both Figlock and the baby were unharmed.
What does one make of such a story?
Time magazine matter-of-factly reported Figlock's story under the headline, "Coincidence in Detroit." It did not include any interviews -- and the story is one the Internet loves to debate as truth or fiction. This much appears to be sure: No one ever caught up with Figlock or either of the babies to see how their lives were shaped by those amazing moments.
Try to explain why these coincidences occur, and few agree. Even Jung struggled to grasp the implication of synchronicity -- some say he had at least three different definitions of it, and his followers disagreed about its meaning.
Says Williams, the disbeliever: "I don't think anyone has had a bead on the absolute truth."
So what are we left with? Puzzling stories of falling babies, plum pudding and odd coincidences that can shape people's lives -- and even haunt them.

Werewolf Folklore in Pennsylvania
By David Weatherly
There's a wealth of werewolf folklore in Pennsylvania, much of it obviously influenced by the large number of European settlers that populated the region during the early colonial days. German and Dutch influence was very heavy and long standing traditions from the old world became firmly planted in the new. Has a result, early documents and reports often make note of strange encounters and occurrences that relate to magic and strange creatures. Some believed that a person could be born cursed or destined to become wild.
Here's an interesting piece relating to werewolves and the birth of an unusual child that apparently turned feral. According to an old folklore journal:
"In the Lingle Valley, between Centre and Mifflin Counties, in the log cabin where Edgar Allan Poe is said to have spent a night on his hunt for a legacy in the Poe Valley, in 1838, a boy child was born who developed long hairs between his fingers and on the sides of his feet. "He will do no good; he will become a garol," said his great-grandmother. When he was eight years old he began running away, becoming restless on nights when the wolves were out. He was usually found near the wolves' hairy beds, but one time he could not be located. Quietly all of the family uttered a silent prayer at his complete disappearance."
In modern times, science has discovered a genetic mutation, the so called "werewolf syndrome," that explains excessive hair growth on the body. Such a mutation is extremely rare however with only a 100 cases being documented worldwide.
Of note in the above report is that the family does not report the child growing hair all over the body, only long hair on his fingers and feet. Additionally, any medical condition would not explain his propensity to keep running away and hiding with wolves.
Hex Signs Vs. Werewolves
Hex signs are a Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. They have been found on barns and in homes in the region since at least the 1850s. There is some controversy about them as some scholars insist the signs are purely artistic. Hex signs did indeed become a popular folk art tourist item in the 1940s and since then, they can be found for sale at craft stores and shops around the state.
However, a lot of interesting bits of information can be found in traditional folklore indicating an older magical, or superstitious tradition connected to the use of the signs. Many families have record of specific designs being used for defined purposes such as warding off evil. Author Lee Gandee describes Hex signs as "painted prayers." Indications are that the designs themselves originated with Alpine Germans.
Here's an interesting record of hex signs being used in an attempt to ward off werewolves in Pennsylvania's logging region. No date is given on this report, but indications are that it is pre-civil war. The account was published in an issue of Keystone folklore.
"The wolfish creatures which infested Elk Creek Gap in Centre County, between Throne's Farm in Brush Valley and Millheim, were probably werewolves. There was twenty-four-hour hauling of lumber through the gap, and at night what seemed to be gigantic dogs or wolves came off Hundsrick Mountain and got on the loaded sledges; they were of such weight that they bogged down the horses, making hauling an almost impossible task. Others put their front paws on the backs of the sleds, holding them down as if they were made of iron, and making the horses balk after their frantic efforts under the drives' cruel sjamboks or blacksnake whips. Once they got out of the hollow gap, the runners slid over the icy surfaces, but the horses were always badly spent. Hechs (or hex) signs were chalked on the gears and six-inch breechings but had little or no effect, and gradually the hauling to sawmills at the Blue Rock and L & T R.R. at Coburn slowed down at sundown."

Strange and Disturbing Events in Siberia
by Albert S. Rosales
Location: Near Sretensk, Chita region, Zabaikal’ye, East Siberia, Russia.
In a specific valley located in dense Siberian taiga and rocks outside the small town of Sretensk, there is evidence of an anomalous area or presence. Possibly related to the space time continuum or perhaps an alien base or dimensional portal, on August 27, 2002, two men who visited the location (Pyotr Valerievich Grigorenko, a tourist guide and his friend Alexander Vladimirovich Banschikov, a building engineer) experienced a bizarre “compression of time” it seemed that for them the whole day only lasted for about 20 minutes (!).
From the top of one specific rock Banschikov also observed hemispherical forms resembling domes of red and pink tints located at different locations within the valley. In the valley, the men also saw dozens of deformed or uprooted centuries-old pine trees and larches. The pine trees appeared to have been uprooted by hurricane force winds and had strangely fallen in a position which formed a straight line.
Local hunters have repeatedly encountered UFOs, strange lights and other anomalous phenomena, but are rather reluctant to speak about the incidents. According to some of their testimonies, the appearance of strange lights are usually accompanied by a hissing or crackling sound, similar to that of a burning torch. This is also accompanied by the sensation of physical fatigue and nervousness. There are also recorded instances in which isolated hunters have suddenly felt a tremendous dread or fear and dropped everything (including their rifles) and run from the area, some running as much as 20km.
In 2001, a friend of Grigorenko who was living in an isolated hut in the region reportedly would leave the hut late at night and walk several kilometers in order to meet with a “stranger.” The stranger was usually dressed in a dark hood like tunic girded with a lace. In appearance the stranger was definitely not a local and apparently not human. He was very tall and looked like a man of 70-90 years of age but very strong in appearance.
The stranger would teach his visitor to “see things with his heart” and answered some of his questions by using telepathy. The witness did not go into detail as to what were the themes of their many conversations. Apparently he swore an oath not to talk of his experiences.
On several occasions, Grigorenko himself saw a bizarre 2-meter tall black humanoid with an elongated rectangular-shaped head. The humanoid moved in complete silence even on top of dry foliage. Usually this figure will come out from behind a ridge away from a local dirt road and would accompany Grigorenko and his friend at a distance of 25 to 30 meters. The humanoid’s appearance was always preceded by a feeling of discomfort and uneasiness. Many times they felt so much that they would hastily return to their cabin.
Their second meeting with the humanoid was not less intense. Grigorenko’s friend did not see the humanoid but could “hear” its presence, which he describes as an unpleasant and oppressive sound, but which Grigorenko never hears. According to Alexander (Grigorenko’s friend) the sound is similar to a rattling shout or squeal at a very high pitch. The humanoid figures look relatively “flat” (not three dimensional) and the witnesses could not see details of its physical make up. Its arms and legs appeared to be long and “bent”; it also seems to be able to bend at waist level.
The witnesses noted that the phenomena seems to be of a seasonal nature usually from July to October. Both men have reportedly taken dozens of photographic film at different locations in the valley but upon developing the film, the film appears either overexposed or black with a red hue (radiation?). The area used to be good for hunting but game animals have reportedly left the area. HC addendum.

Incubus and Succubus Attacks
By Stephen Wagner
For centuries, women and men have reported sexual attacks by unseen entities as they lie in their beds. Are they victims of demonic, psychological or medical disturbances?
A reader sent me the following e-mail:
I need an honest answer. Anyone out there have experience in spirit lovers? I am recently widowed, and as of Aug. 1st I am inundated with spirit lovers – not without choice.
I sent a reply asking for further details, and received this story:
My age is 47 and I am female. For about six years, my daughter and I felt walking on the bed and other surfaces that we sleep on. My husband and son thought we were nuts. It would happen while we were completely awake or even just getting into bed. The walking would be light and sometimes the bed would wave.
A couple of times, during that approximate six years, I would wake up to find something sexual happening. At that time I would shake it away. My husband had been sick for the last five years (stroke and other complications), and this past December passed away. A few months before he died, I found him sitting on the side of his bed looking ashen. He had told me that something jumped on his bed. It had happened before and he always blamed it on the cat, even though the cat was not in his room. This time he believed and was shaken.
On August 1, the entities were back in my bed, and this time I relented at a weak moment. I can’t understand how I could have because the thought of it frightens me. The first few times, my heart was beating like a drum. Once it started, it never ended. I developed an insatiable appetite for sex and didn’t stop thinking about it 24 hours in the day. Neither did "they." I rationalized that it was friendly spirits of the universe, but I knew in the back of my mind differently.
For three days, going on four, I had constant sex. They did not enter for long and then the next one would come. I could not get enough. Literally, I could not function normally.
The turning point came today. I was at work and something that was cold enveloped me starting at my feet and ending behind me. My hands, which were trying to type at the time, were frozen in place, not paralyzed. The thing seemed to scare the others away, like it had some power beyond theirs. It had sex with me while I was sitting in the chair, but it was different. More mellow and soft. It scared me tremendously because it was outward and not inward, like the others. This is all going to wear me down if I don’t find some serious help. This is all true.
This is a disturbing story, to say the least, and describes a classic case of an incubus attack. In paranormal lore, an incubus is a spirit or demon that attacks a woman, usually while she lies in bed, seeking sexual intercourse. A man also can come under such an attack, and in this case the spirit is known as a succubus.
Molestation from incubi and succubi have been reported at least since the middle ages. In a related phenomenon, known as "old hag syndrome," the victim feels the presence of some entity lying heavily on top of him or her, making breathing difficult, and it is sometimes even accompanied by feelings of strangulation, but without the sexual component of the incubus.
William Shakespeare mentions this phenomenon in Act 1, Scene 4 of Romeo and Juliet:
This is the hag, when maids lie on their backs,
That presses them, and learns them first to bear,
Making them women of good carriage.
In his novel Le Horla, Guy de Maupassant also describes such an experience, which he might have suffered himself:
I sleep – for a while – two or three hours – then a dream – no – a nightmare seizes me in its grip, I know full well that I am lying down and that I am asleep... I sense it and I know it... and I am also aware that somebody is coming up to me, looking at me, running his fingers over me, climbing on to my bed, kneeling on my chest, taking me by the throat and squeezing... squeezing... with all its might, trying to strangle me. I struggle, but I am tied down by that dreadful feeling of helplessness which paralyzes us in our dreams. I want to cry out – but I can’t. I want to move – I can’t do it. I try, making terrible, strenuous efforts, gasping for breath, to turn on my side, to throw off this creature who is crushing me and choking me – but I can’t! Then, suddenly, I wake up, panic-stricken, covered in sweat. I light a candle. I am alone.
SEEKING AN EXPLANATION
Medical science attributes this bizarre experience to an affliction known as sleep paralysis, according to Al Cheyne at the University of Waterloo’s Department of Psychology. "Sleep paralysis, or more properly, sleep paralysis with hypnagogic and hypnopompic hallucinations," Cheyne writes, "have been singled out as a particularly likely source of beliefs concerning not only alien abductions, but all manner of beliefs in alternative realities and otherworldly creatures.
Sleep paralysis is a condition in which someone, most often lying in a supine position, about to drop of to sleep, or just upon waking from sleep realizes that s/he is unable to move, or speak, or cry out. This may last a few seconds or several moments, occasionally longer. People frequently report feeling a 'presence' that is often described as malevolent, threatening, or evil.
An intense sense of dread and terror is very common."
Cheyne's research shows that as much as 40 percent of the population has had such an experience at least once. The paralysis is caused by the release of hormones during REM (rapid eye movement) dream state that paralyzes the body and keeps it from acting out the contents of the dream. Usually the hormones dissipate before the dream ends and dreamer awakens. In rare cases, however, the hormones are still suppressing the body’s motor functions when the sleeper has awakened and finds herself paralyzed. The waking brain tries to find a rational explanation for this paralysis and so invents the evil presence or entity.
In still rarer cases, the phenomenon is accompanied by sometimes horrifying hallucinations, such as black forms, demons, snakes, the old hag herself – and even little gray aliens.
Cheyne cites another study that theorizes that the profound feeling of paralysis could be a latent human form of "tonic immobility," the action of feigning death that prey animals often rely on when stalked, chased, seized, and attacked – a strategy of last resort induced by fear or restraint.
DEMONIC OR PSYCHOLOGICAL DISTURBANCE?
Sleep paralysis might explain the old hag phenomenon, but what of the sexual attacks? The woman who wrote to me said the attacks began in her bedroom, but soon began to take place outside the home when she was wide awake in the office. Her daughter and husband were also witness to the beginnings of the phenomenon. And this woman is not alone in her experience.
The 1981 movie The Entity starring Barbara Hershey was based on a true, documented case of a woman in Culver City, California, who was repeatedly raped in her home by an unseen force. Actress Lucy Liu told Us magazine of her sexual encounter with a mysterious spirit. "I was sleeping on my futon," Liu said, "and some sort of spirit came down from God knows where and made love to me. It was sheer bliss. I felt everything. I climaxed. And then he floated away. Something came down and touched me, and now it watches over me."
Paranormal online forums also document such attacks. One post confesses: "I too have been dealing with this problem for years. What I have come to realize is: 1) The more I feared it, the more power it has. The attacks increased. 2) As I began to ask God for help, the attacks have decreased, but haven’t stopped as yet. I feel there is a connection with 'it' and the fact that, when I was a child, I was molested by my father."
This admission points to a very likely psychological connection between sexual abuse and the incubus phenomenon, and it would be interesting to discover if there is a statistical correlation.
Not surprisingly, many religious organizations – especially the fundamentalists – consider the phenomenon to be literally attacks by demonic forces. One one website with a fundamentalist Christian viewpoint, the author writes, "These demons are for real! The demons have sex with both men and women as the person sleeps, and you know it. It's not a dream, and it is not your imagination. If you encountered this situation, deliverance and spiritual warfare can stop it."
On this same website, a female evangelist is quoted as saying, "I know there are countless women that this [demons sexually abusing them] is happening to, because every Christian woman I have spoken to about it [sex demons], 9 out of 10 it has happened to." Nine out of 10 seems pretty high, but it's difficult to know what a fundamentalist might consider sexual abuse.
IS THERE A REMEDY?
So what’s the remedy for an incubus or succubus attack? Should victims go to a medical doctor for relief from sleep paralysis? Should they seek counseling from a psychotherapist or psychiatrist if the experiences are the result of some childhood trauma? Or, as one reader posted in the paranormal forum, should they seek an exorcism?
The best advice might be to first see a medical doctor and go on from there. Psychiatric help would almost certainly be recommended for cases like the woman who wrote the e-mail at the top of this article. But should an exorcism – as we enter the 21st century – ever be performed? In some extreme cases, a psychiatrist might not even object. Since the firm belief in demons could be somewhere at the root of what is probably a very complex problem for the victim, the belief that deliverance could be obtained by casting out the demons or denying their approach in the name of a more powerful God, might be a solution.

The Bleeding House on Fountain Drive
By Xavier Ortega
Just before midnight on September 8th, 1987, Minnie Winston stepped out of her bath and into the strangest night of her life.
The seventy seven year-old noticed a strange, red spill on the bathroom floor. As she was about to inspect the unusual puddle she noticed that the walls in her bathroom also had the same reddish stain mysteriously oozing from its surface. She stepped outside and saw that the hallway floor also had pools of the reddish substance blotted across the tiles.
“Will,” she called out. “Come look at all this red stuff coming out of the floors.” For a split second Minnie panicked when her husband didn’t reply.
At seventy nine years of age, Minnie’s husband’s health was fragile and needed professional medical care. William Winston had to be hooked up to a dialysis machine everyday to have his blood cleansed and the process would leave him exhausted each day.
Minnie’s fear turned into a wild confusion when her husband appeared at the other end of the hallway. He was in clean clothes with no visible signs of blood anywhere on his body. He stood looking at the red blobs between them both. The expression on his wife’s face mimicked his own.
Whose blood was it?
The Winstons were confused and understandably terrified. Not knowing what to do, they placed a call to the police station, asking them to come and check out their home and the mysterious appearance of blood. Detective Steve Cartwright investigated the six bedroom brick house on the south side of Atlanta. The police searched the premises but were unable to find any signs of a break-in or someone hiding in the property. Given the amount of blood at the property, there were two things that Detective Cartwright was sure about that night: That what they were looking at was in fact blood and that it didn’t come from the Winstons.
In over 22 years of residence in 1114 Fountain Drive both Minnie and William had never experienced anything like they had that Tuesday night in 1987. Pools of blood were found in their kitchen, as well as in their living room. It was on the floor of their bedroom, on the walls, and under appliances. Given the amount of blood they found, it appeared to have been placed, or dripped, on the spot from a very lively source. In other words, someone inside their home had been bleeding profusely.
However there was no one inside the house besides the septuagenarian couple, who neither had blood or cuts visibly on their bodies. Even when questioned about her husband’s recent blood work, Minnie assured the officers that all aspects of the treatment were done at a medical facility, not inside their home.
Dumbfounded, the police collected samples of the blood and submitted it to their lab for further analysis. It was now a waiting game for Minnie and her husband as they went to bed every night wondering whose blood had been smeared on the floors and walls of their home. A few days after their initial discovery, Detective Cartwright visited the residence to deliver news that neither he nor the Winstons would come to understand.
The lab results concluded that it was human blood what was collected inside the Winston’s home. Furthermore, it was from someone with Type O blood. When the detective asked, Minnie stated that it wasn’t hers, as hers was not that same type. She then went on to tell him that her husband’s blood type was A.
Which was confirmed by the medical facility that treated Mr. Winston. They were back where they had started. The blood type didn’t match the residents of the house and given the amount of blood that oozed through the floors and walls, Detective Cartwright could only surmise that the blood did not come from the Winstons. So the the question still remained. Whose blood was it?
When the story broke through small headlines in 1987, Minnie and William received a lot of unwanted attention from the press and independent investigators. There were unwanted phone calls and knocks to their house at all hours of the day. The elderly couple kept to their word and stated over and over again that the blood did not belong to them and that it was in no way a hoax.
“I still don’t know where the blood came from,” Minnie said in an interview a few days after the lab results were revealed. “and I’m tired of all these people asking me all these questions. If anybody comes here today, I’m not going to open my door.”
The Atlanta police never figured out where the blood came from and who it came out of. Minnie and William Winston never experienced any further spontaneous blood incidents in the house that came to be known as the Bleeding House.
