For me it's happened both on my back and on my stomach, and there isn't an option for both on the poll tounge2 so I can't vote cry The first times if happened I would see aliens and other strange figures. But now I mostly just feel someone sitting on me and if I remember to open my eyes I'm in a LD 8D Other times I just feel scared and forget to open my eyes and after a while I wake up IRL or I get a few FAs overspannen

Hmm... I looks like I need to add some more options to the poll... but I doesn't appear that I can do that.

Probably... They should add an option to modify polls.

No, because that would mean people who had already voted who would now pick a different option wouldn't be able to. Therefore it would become biased.

Lucidity Master, you have statistics about sleep position during sleep paralysis for about 18000 cases there :
http://watarts.uwaterloo.ca/~acheyne/prevent.html
Sleeping on the back is clearly correlated with SP. From the facts that :
- Old Hag is correlated with SP
- Old Hag is generally shown sitting on someone's belly,
one can deduce that Old Hag is correlated with sleeping on your back. wink5

What is an Old Hag? Well, I know what one is waking life - but have no idea what she has to do with lucid dreaming... thats why I dream - to escape old hags!! And now you are telling me they have something to do with lucid dreams?

Is there no escape?

Not really. It's more related to a sleep trouble, named "sleep paralysis", in which hallucinations can appear. As sleep paralysis looks somewhat like a LD, and some dreamers discovered LD through SP experiences, it's often told about Old Hag on LD forums.

No Old Hag for me yet.. sadblauw Only one near-Old-Hag.. I think I could hear her approaching me from the distance, but the paralysis was over before I could see her. This happened when I was lying on my back. Also whenever I become lucid during regular sleep paralysis I'm in that position.

Funny i always thought "hag" was a "he" instead of a "she" shy2

same as mystic I got a near-old-hag twice, one was yesterday. The first time it was my angry friend knocking on the door and threatening me. Yesterday it was my dad's astral body with his hands pushing down on my chest tounge2 but i only saw his arms. I was on my back in the two times. The second time I had my real eyes opened before it was over: it was weird how the arms suddenly disappeared!
