Why Does Witch Attack When You Keep Your Hand on Your Chest While Sleeping At Night?

I still remember. When I was a child, an old lady told me a true event of witch attack where a man was killed. According to the lady, the chief mistake of the man was that his hand was on his chest while he was sleeping. The lady further told me that a witch searches a man who is sleeping by keeping his hand on the chest. The kind lady also suggested me never to keep hand on chest while sleeping. As a child, I agreed her and followed this rule strictly.

Do I still follow this rule? The answer is YES SURELY. Both you and I know it is nothing more than a superstition. However I never keep my hand on chest while sleeping.  But I am not doing it due to the fear of any witch attack. The reason is scientific. First of all let me tell you an incidence where I had mistakenly violated my rule and what happened to me.

One day I had kept my hand on my chest. As I was dreaming about witch, I felt someone snatched my neck. I was half awake and I confirmed myself I was not dreaming at that moment. After a few seconds I decided to counter attack. Then I found myself normal on the bed.

How many of you have experienced this type of incidence? I know many of you. May be most of you had kept hand on the chest at the moment. You can do it every night till you experience it. It’s an adventure for you. Only the difference will be that you can encounter a ghost or any other being what you fear about instead of a witch.

It is clear that there is no witch or ghost or any other scary being behind the scene of this incidence. Then what was that? Let me give scientific reason which is so simple and interesting.

This is related to your heart and brain connection. When you sleep, your heart and brain still will be functioning. Especially when you are tired and you keep any heavy thing like your hand on the chest; it affects your brain and dream. As a result you experience such type of paranormal experience in response.

So I never keep my hand on chest while sleeping so that the functioning of the heart won’t be interrupted due to the heavy load on the chest and I do not experience any kind of unwanted incidence which is triggered by my brain.

As all of you know that National Discovery openly fights against superstition. If you have experienced any amazing and challenging things which are of paranormal type, let us know about them in the comment below. We will try to explain them in psychological as well as scientific prospective so that the reality is brought out and the blind faith can be split. What do you think?

  1. some people say that witch scratches if we sleep without mouth washing....what is the explanation behing it????/does it really scratches?????...........I personally never tried it because mouth unwashed sleep is very unhygienic....

    1. No, it is said so that people will develop habit of washing mouth before sleeping for proper hygiene.

  2. I have seen 4 weird things after waking up: a ghost with a familiar face that hanged itself, a black cat with glowing red eyes, staring at me intensely, a witch stirring a cauldron and grinning, and finally, after waking up one night from a dream, I experienced everything exactly as it happened in that dream, which I dreamt many times. It involved falling from my bed, after I fell in another place due to a witch's curse, and dying. Obviously, I didn't die. But yeah, that was really really scary.

  3. I always sleep with my hands on my chest i always try not to because my hands get numb from being in the potition for too long. somewhow during my sleep I put them in that position. I spoke to my doctor about it because it causes my hands to get really stiff from the blood no circulating as good. So I always wake up with my hands in my chest I literally sleep like if i was in a coffin. Superstition or not. is Not fun at all.

  4. I put my hands on my chest when it's hard to sleep. By doing so I get sleep quickly and haven't noticed any ghost or side effect . I think it's good for good sleep as I do most of times... A hand won't whey a pound if elbow s on bed it's less than breasts I think...
