History

There are varied and numerous stories about the creation of Tai Chi, seen as a gymnastics or a martial art, as its name establishes "Great Fist", it refers to one of the most effective techniques for the defense of man both physically and mentally. .


Among the different stories there is one that relates that at the end of the Sung dynasty approximately 800 years ago, a man who made an elixir known as Zhang Sang Fen lived in the mountains of Wu Bana. Being a night when the lonely man slept, he dreamed that Xuan Wu the Black Monarch, indicated a way to fight to defend himself, and that thanks to this revelation in the dream the next day he defended himself from the attack by a number of criminals who came to bother him, and he was able to free himself by collapsing and killing these criminals. Xuan Du was a Taoist divinity who came from a pilgrimage from the mountain known as Wu Dang, which is located to the north and the pole star, it is a spectacular place where Tai Chi is usually cultivated. Due to his birth this art is respected as a divine practice.


According to other versions, this same Taoist monk was present in a combat that existed between a snake and a crane. The crane charged relentlessly with energy and precision, while the snake only delicately fled from the deadly attacks. The bird had to admit in front of an opponent that his movements were smooth and did not allow him to counterattack with resistance and speed. This particular battle inspired Zhang Sang Fen to create a martial art that his beginnings would be based on submitting with strong, energetic and at the same time soft movements, which really allowed the style to knock down an enemy even if he was the strongest and heavy.


According to historical information, they point out that the art of tai chi originated and developed in the province known as Henan, where there was a family known as Chen, this was approximately three hundred years.


The art of tai chi has several reliable stories about its creation, it was until the middle of the 16th century at that time, there was a general of traditional Chinese origin known as 戚繼光, pinyin: Qī Jìguāng, 1528−1588, who was the creator of new styles of martial arts that was based on the 32 different styles that he knew. Certainly his name is not mentioned in the art of tai chin, however, the book where all styles were captured with various techniques that today are part of the practice of tai chin.


Later, in the middle of the 17th century, in a place known in Chinese: 陳家溝 Chenjiagou, a new way of practicing boxing emerged, and according to the Chen Wangting family, it was based on the martial arts of that time. There is no information that certifies the role played by the religious of Wudang known in Chinese 王宗岳 Wang Zongyue in the formation of tai chi. What is certain is that from that moment the style developed and was transferred as a family secret from the Chen family.


Then in the mid-19th century, the Chen family first handed over this technique to an unknown man named Chén Chángxīng, 1771–1853, who accepted Yang Lu-ch'an, 1799–1872 as his disciple into the family group. . Yang Luchan later perfected the knowledge of him, which made him the founder of the Yang style. Later, in the mid-nineteenth century, the knowledge was founded, which gave rise to the different five family styles, where each of these was developed and promulgated, conserving itself within the bosom of each family that corresponded to it. The master only transferred the knowledge of his style to his descendants, which indicated that the only one who represented the tai chi style was the head of the family himself.


Between the different lineages there was an exchange of style, especially at the time of creation. Here are the five different family styles:


Xiaojia style

In Chinese 小架 pinying, which means large structure


dajia style

Want to express great structure


dalaojia style

Want to express old structure


xinjia style

expressing new structure


Continuing with the various versions on the history of ancient China and the relationship with the origins of the practice of tai chi, and as the time of its emergence, many of these have their intention linked to history, but none really has a reality. One of these indicates its origin to a religious who came from India known as Bodhidharma (Da Mo). This religious went to China when Emperor Wu of the Liang ruled, being 502 – 509 BC, and settled in Shaolin to transfer his knowledge about Buddhism. It is said that the monk Bodhidharma usually left the temple and went to the top of a mountain where he stayed for a long time in a state of chana, which means meditation, and when he was already exhausted, he stood up and began a Exercise routine.


Many of them simulating the movements and skills used by animals to defend themselves, which he observed, and developed until practice, and which became known as Shaolin Gong Fu. When the monk returned to the sacred precinct, he found that the Chinese monks were exhausted Due to the enormous fasting times they practiced, in addition to the time they gave to the art of meditation, it was when he proposed to teach them all his knowledge.


There are also more reliable historical data, which narrate that Tai Chi is known today, had its beginning about 300 years ago, at the end of the Ming monarchy and the beginning of the Quing dynasty in Chenjiagou, Henan province. Chén Wáng Tíng is indicated as the garrison chief of the Wenxian district as the founder of Tai Chi.


your symbol

The symbol of Tai Chi, has the main characteristic that appears reflected in almost all disciplines of Eastern origin such as Tai Chi, Chi Kum, Meditation, and different martial arts.


The design of this symbol means the creation of the cosmos, which begins with the "empty" where there is no wu chi, which means "nothing", continues with the process of division into two parts known as the Ying-Yang, then it transforms into three parts that represent heaven, earth and humanity, and concludes with ten thousand other things that mean everything else that also exists in the universe. Humanity is the main column that has the connection between heaven and earth.


This Tai Chi symbol has several degrees with meanings:


Ying Yang

It refers to two main forces of the cosmos, where neither works without the other, they complement each other, there is no competition, they have a perfect harmony. 


full of yin

Represents the end "death"


full of yang

Represents the beginning of "life"


Black yin, white yang

Refers to rotation, which is always moving counterclockwise.


There are some associations that point out that it is the symbol that represents Taoism, which appears in a triangle, they relate it to Christianity, Freemasonry and some other groups that are dedicated to the investigation of symbols. It is good to highlight that the triangle is represented by the number three, and is named by Lao Tse, where:


The triangle represents the first form as the strongest structure, this symbol also with its vertex upwards personifies the mountains, the stones, while its downward vertex symbolizes the cup, the cave and the heart. It is very true that Tai Chi comes from the Taoist culture, we must not fail to point out how significant Christianity represents to the Ministry of the Trinity. It is observed in the symbol of the Holy Family "Father, Mother and Son", in the three crosses of Calvary "the two thieves and the Christ", but very especially in the ideas shown of "Father, Son and Holy Spirit", who personify the three Persons of the Trinity, who symbolize unity.


The Trinity, being a more abstract representation, could also be the figure that persists the most in the mind of a Tai Chi art practitioner, due to the greatness that the TAO represents, which does not necessarily force preconceived spiritual ideas, on the contrary, it is the closest approximation. respectful of the mystery that represents life, death and the spiritual current that a human being carries.

The reason that the energies flow in the indicated way through the meridians of the human body is the cause that indicates that you can feel in an excellent state, or else the body can suffer a disease in the event that the energy does not flow correctly.


So, it can be said that based on this belief, the permanent performance of the art of tai chi is essential to correctly channel the essential energies of the human body. By achieving this, you can be sure that the perfect harmony was achieved that combines both the physical and the mental, as well as the relationship with the other part of the cosmos, because the energy is also channeled abroad and influences it.

The characteristic of meditation in movement is what achieves the union between tai chi and chi kung, to the extent that it can be pointed out that tai chi is practiced more frequently and is more famous, and the truth is that it is a form of chi kung, which makes the differences not clearly appreciated.


However, although these two ways of exercising are similar, it must be taken into account that the practices are executed in different ways and each individual must keep in mind that they really want to practice, for which they must find a teacher who knows each of these arts, because it is understood that it could happen that a tai chi instructor does not necessarily know the chi kung techniques or vice versa.


use of animals

The beginning and evolution of the art of taichi of how the use of animals intervenes therapeutically, it is understood that at the time of the dynasty there was a doctor known as Hua Tuo, who at that time was excellent in surgery and connoisseur of medicinal plants . One of his concerns was knowing how to avoid the pain and suffering caused by surgery, because in these times there was no anesthesia.


In his research work he managed to discover the use of a medicinal herb as total anesthesia, which allowed him to perform surgeries with the use of this plant. His discovery and method reached Japan, Korea, Arabia and North Africa, becoming famous as the first doctor to perform surgical operations under anesthesia and began the spread of his knowledge.


This doctor was also popular for his research in preventive medicine creating therapeutic art in 5 animals, because he reasoned that man should perform exercises to move all parts of the body, taking into account breathing and mental concentration. It is probable that this is the cause of the therapeutic art in the five animals. 


Currently and in almost all the traditional exercises of Chi Kung and Tai Chi there are different versions, which come from other teachers than Hua Tuo. The style of the similarity of the displacements are simple and little strong, which are suitable and aimed at weak and elderly people. It is a mental practice that tries to emotionally imitate the following animals: the tiger, the bear, the monkey, the deer, the crane, exercising the body as little as possible. There is the practice of Yen Jai, which is considered as a good teaching of the therapeutic sport of the five animals to learn first the tai chi chuan, with which the participant effectively achieves the reproductions of the gestures of the five animals, in what is must be clear about the following concepts: 


absolute relationship status

Control and achieve normal breathing

Achieve states of concentration

Make slow and calm movements

Provide self-massage

The use of the five animals is related to five of our vital organs that the human body possesses and with the emotions and natural energy that are indicated below:


Bear

It is related to the energy of water and is associated with the kidney organ and the emotion of fear.


the deer

It is associated with the energy of fire and is linked with the organ of the heart and the small intestine and with the emotion of joy and laughter.


The Tiger

It is related to the energy of wood and is linked to the liver organ and the emotion of rage, anger


Monkey

It is associated with the energy of the earth and is associated with the organ of the bao and with the emotion of obsession.


The crane

tai chi techniques

Tai chi has some ancient techniques that reside in the execution of slow and harmonic movements that are integrated with adequate breathing and with a state of absolute mental concentration, these techniques are currently in force with what the individual achieves the strength, energy and inner harmony. The techniques used in this art originate from the different styles that are based on principles that are the mixture of 13 definitions or techniques, which are called "Shisan Shi" or 13 forces that are the energy core of martial arts.

Carolyn Perron, the mother, also said that the hide-and-seek scene was well done in the movie but far more terrifying in real life. She also refused to come on the film set (while her husband and her daughters went there), fearing that the spirits would attack her again.

35. The neighbors tried to warn the family of the danger


While no strange event had yet occurred, Carolyn Perron received strange advice from her neighbors. In particular, he was advised to leave the lights on at night and even to flee this place with his family. Soon after, objects began to move for no good reason.

36. At first the spirits seemed harmless


According to their testimony, the children of the Perron family quickly felt a presence in the house but the girls were not frightened because this presence did not seem threatening. Apparently these ghosts spoke to them and kissed them on the forehead before they fell asleep. Frankly, I would have been terrified for much less than that.

37. Other spirits, less sympathetic, arrived later


As time went by, new spirits came to replace the gentle ghosts. According to the Perron children, that's when they started to get really scared. The spirits told them of the bodies of soldiers who would be walled up in the house. Some nights, always at the same time, a smell of burning flesh was felt in the house, waking the whole family. What seems to have traumatized the five little girls the most is the mind of a malicious man. They never wanted to give more details about what this presence did to them.

38. One of the children ended up locked in a trunk


One day, while the five girls are playing hide and seek, one of them decides to hide in a trunk that had no lock or particular closure (a simple trunk with the lid lifted). As no one finds her, the little girl decides to go out, but she realizes that it is impossible: the cover no longer lifts and the child is stuck inside the trunk. It was not until 20 minutes later that, alerted by the screams, one of the sisters arrived to rescue the little girl by simply lifting the lid. No one has ever solved this mystery.

39. The family stayed in the house for 9 years without being able to leave


In the movie Conjuring, the Warrens explain to the Perron family that it is useless to leave the house because the spirits have chosen to persecute them. In reality, the reason that forced the family to stay so long was simply financial. In the 1970s in the United States, between the government of Nixon and that of Carter, the economic crisis affected many families. In addition, the value of the Perron house is devalued every day because of the strange events that take place there. Result: nobody wants to buy this house and the Perrons do not have the means to live elsewhere with their five children. It was not until 1980 that they finally left this cursed place to go and live in Georgia.

40. Carolyn Perron actually saw a woman yelling at her in the middle of the night


One day, as she was going to bed, Carolyn saw a woman in a gray dress appear near her bed. The woman reportedly shouted at him "Go away or I will scare you away with death and darkness" (rough translation). After much research on the former inhabitants of the house, the Warrens and Perrons concluded that it was probably the ghost of a certain Bathsheba Thayer but it is obviously impossible to prove it.

41. Bathsheba Thayer was not a witch at all


In the movie Conjuring, the woman who appears in the house and ends up owning Carolyn Perron is portrayed as a witch who allegedly sacrificed her child to the devil before committing suicide. Actually, Bathsheba Thayer did exist but she never practiced witchcraft or anything close to it. She was a normal woman who lived in the 19th century with her husband. Three of her four children died very young but there is no mention of murder or suicide in the archives. Bathsheba Thayer died in 1885 of a heart attack.

42. Friends of the family contacted the Warrens


The Perrons never contacted Ed and Lorraine Warren, it was the Warrens who came to them. Friends of the Perron family actually attended a conference hosted by the Warrens in Connecticut and got to chat with the couple. They then talked about the strange events that had occurred in their friends' house and the Warrens replied: "We absolutely have to go and see."

43. The Warrens may have made it worse


Strangely, the Perron family's version of the facts and that of the Warren couple do not always coincide. Parts of the story are sometimes incomplete or slightly different. The movie Conjuring was primarily written based on the Warrens' version of events, the one where the couple manages to get rid of spirits. Unfortunately, that may not be the truth. According to the Perrons, the Warrens never really got rid of spirits, and the spirits remained in haunting them for years after they left home.

44. The real corpse in the fake haunted house


We all had this thought at 10 years old: “Can you imagine if the model, there, and well in fact, and well it would in fact be a real death? And bah in 1976, an American TV crew filming an episode in a haunted house in an amusement park in California had the answer. During the filming, a hanged man's mannequin lost an arm in which human bones were found. In reality, the body was that of a criminal, Elem McCurdy, murdered in 1911 after a train attack by a bounty hunter. The local undertaker had then embalmed it and kept it as a demonstration product because it was so well done. Until one day McCurdy's pseudo-brother came to claim the body. The pseudo-brother was actually a showman who had made the body a major part of his haunted house show.

45. The guy buried alive


"Can you imagine, in fact, you're not dead, but the doctor and well the doctor are wrong, and you find yourself buried alive?" Oh the seum! " It has happened many times. A guy called William Tebb recorded more than 200 such cases in recent history at the end of the 19th century. Recent history at the time, that is to say at the end of the 19th century. Afterwards, we sometimes found traces of scratches inside the coffins, which is never a good sign on the last moments offered to the world to the dead. A fashion developed in the early twentieth century: secure coffins, including some kind of horn or a powerful bell to signal that one was not dead (just in case).

46. The girl is stabbed in a discretionary library and nobody sees anything


You see it, eh, the American library with its green lamps, its endless passageways, its secluded places, its silence: a perfect place to fuck or to die stabbed by a maniac unleashed on campus. And bah in 1969, the student Betsy Aardsma was stabbed while she was consulting a book in one of the bays. Nobody saw anything, nobody heard anything. The killer was never discovered.

47. The killer who lived in hiding for several days in the house before killing the whole family


The house could well be haunted. We hear footsteps, we see things that disappear, we end up murdered by a maniac. In 1922, farmer Andreas Gruber and his family experienced exactly that. There were steps in the attic. Weird, did you say weird? Okay. The Grubers did not pick up. Then, on March 31, they were all killed with an ax: mother, father, children, grandchildren. But not the animals. We never found the murderer.

48. The manic surgeon


Under the guise of his long studies of medicine, the surgeon is in fact a maniac who operates on his victims with the sole and sole objective of collecting their organs. Yes it's possible. For example, that pretty much describes the surgeon Glen Tucker, who in the 1970s amused himself amputating arms for fun or doing square breast implants. One day a patient woke up in the middle of her nose job, which was broken, to see dear Doctor Tucker doing sadistic things with his nose in a deserted operating room. She complained and Tucker started following her down the street. Then Tucker had the good taste to die in a boating accident in 1982, or rather to pretend, since he was found in Florida a few years later. Rather than being tried, he committed suicide in 2011. After killing his wife and her cat.

49. Your ex cooks you a dog


"It would be horrible for a sadistic cook to make me eat Cookie Stew" (Cookie is the Gloden Retriever who shares your life). Yes. And bah Ryan Watenpaugh, after having freaked out his ex-girlfriend by forcing the door to his apartment, did something like that. When the girl in question escaped, he was left alone with the dog and later pretended that he had escaped. Then Cookie's mistress was stupid enough to accept an invitation to dinner and Wantenpaugh made her a nice little meal. Then he sent sadistic texts to the girl explaining that she had just eaten her dog. And also a plastic bag with the remains to prove that it was true.

50. Telephone. Midnight. "I see you"


We take the beginning of Scream . We transpose it into real life. A little English teenager from Chester in 2014 began to receive texts that she was being watched very closely by someone "in her house". The girl was not too careful, telling herself that she was dealing with a dingo, then lay down (anyway) in her mother's bed. Then she returned to her room in the middle of the night and, seeing that some stuff had been moved, looked under the bed. Where she found her stalker, an 18 year old kid. Fortunately, nothing happened to this poor little teenager.

51. The Legend of Charlie No-Face


It's a local story, but worth the detour. Charlie No Face was a character in popular culture around Pittsburgh, a sort of White Lady aimed at terrifying children. Except that in reality, Charlie existed. His real name was Raymond Robinson and he was disfigured by a maxi-shock in 1919 while playing near an electric conveyor. Then, Raymond Robinson lived a small life of patachon all alone by remaining cloistered in his home for fear of being judged. He would not allow himself to go out until nightfall. You kinda see how the guy became an urban legend.

52. Waking up with one missing kidney


1: take a load; 2: agree to get into a stranger's car; 3: wake up far from home, naked, with one kidney less and an extra scar. And bah know that it is a little possible: between 2000 and 2008, 500 Indians were the victims of illegal kidney trafficking. They were spotted in the street, not because they were drunk, but because they were looking for work and offered to them for bogus. Then chloroform, boom and more kidney.

53. The collector of human bodies


The super weird neighbor collects corpses, it is well known. Why else would he have so many papier mache dolls? Well done, Edvige. For example, the Moscow historian Anatoly Moskvin, who freaked out all the children in the neighborhood, was indeed responsible for the dead bodies in the Nizhny Novgorod cemetery. So Moskvin would collect the corpses, put on them girls' dresses and wigs, and arrange them in the apartment. There were 29 of them. With masks. And all. And all.

54. The murder of the Lawson family


We are in 1929, a time when, contrary to popular belief, people did not live in black and white. On Christmas Eve, Charlie Lawson, 43, a farmer from North Carolina, takes his family to town to take a picture and shop for clothes. The kind of activity that is quite unusual for a large family of farmers without a circle. There was his wife and their seven children there. The next day, December 25, Charlie waits for his two daughters to come out of the house to shoot them before hitting them badly. He then returns home and shoots another of his daughters who was on the steps. Then he walks into the house and kills everyone: his wife, his two boys and his little baby. He then heads for the woods and shoots himself in the head. The only survivor of the killing is the 16-year-old eldest, One of the theories that can explain the massacre is that the father allegedly got his daughter pregnant and found no other way out. Atmosphere atmosphere and Merry Christmas.

55. The Covina massacre


In 2008, the divorce between Bruce and Sylvia Pardo was confirmed. But as often during separations by mutual agreement, someone agrees more than the other: in this case, Bruce is not very satisfied with the situation. So he decides to hurt his ex-wife and his whole family. He takes the car and arrives at Sylvia's parents in Covina, California on Christmas Day. He rings the bell, disguised as Santa Claus, and Sylvia's niece lets him in. Especially since he has gifts in his hands! Except that the packaging actually contains a flamethrower and guns. Pardo begins by shooting everyone until the whole family is forced to hide. It was then that he poured gasoline all over the ground before using the flamethrower. He kills nine people including his ex-wife.

56. The corpse at the foot of the tree


In 2011, Michelle O'Dowd showed a beautiful Christmas spirit by offering her nephew's ex-girlfriend, Patty White, to come and live with her in exchange for a little cleaning. Except that a few days before Christmas, Michelle O'Dowd does not come to work without warning. Her twin brother is worried and goes to her house. His car is there, the house seems inhabited, but no trace of his sister. Ah yes in fact: his foot protrudes from the gifts piled up at the foot of the Christmas tree. Her protégé, Patty, hit and strangled her before leaving the body in place and fleeing the state. She was eventually arrested.

57. Christmas must go on


Justin Lee Klopp and his wife had the good idea of arguing on Christmas Day. Apparently, Klopp wasn't a guy it felt good to disagree with, compared to the fact that, to settle the brawl, he grabbed an ax and just smashed his wife, Stephanie. Before slitting his throat to be sure he had succeeded. Then he put the body in a plastic bag that he threw in the trash, before waking up his two children to go and celebrate Christmas with his parents. It was during the meal, which we imagine SUPER FRIENDLY, that Klopp decided to call the cops to confess his crime. Klopp hanged himself in prison.

58. The Ashland Tragedy


On December 23, 1881, three teenagers aged 14 to 17 were sleeping lazily, impatiently awaiting the next day's party. At that time, three people entered the Gibbon house to murder them using an ax and an iron bar. After the children died, the three people in question decided that the best thing was to burn the house to ashes. Neighbors were alarmed to see a fire and called the fire department. We found the kids, their heads shattered, among the debris. Ah, and among the teenagers there were two girls who were also raped. The three attackers were found, tried, and hanged.

59. The nice Christmas present


Alexis Valdez was living with his aunt in 2011 when he argued with her aunt's guy, Silvestre (who was called himself after Grosminet, let us note), who reproached him for not contributing to the rent. Alexis did not take reproaches. Suddenly, he took a hammer and smashed Silvestre's head, before turning on the music to be able to cuddle and in disorder: the enucleate, cut off his head and a few other things like the nose or the ears. Then he wrapped the head and left it on his aunt's pillow as a Christmas present. The police found him covered in blood. Valdez explained that, if his aunt had been present, she would have suffered the same fate.

60. The massacre of the Yazdanpanah family


Also in 2011, in Texas this time, we celebrated Christmas at the Yazdanpanah. It was time for the great unpacking of gifts. Suddenly, there is a knock on the door: it's the father, Aziz, disguised as Santa Claus. Of course, that annoys everyone; besides, her niece, Sahra, sends a text to her boyfriend: "There you go, he's trying to play the ideal father when he's never there." Error buzzer, Sahra, wrong answer. Aziz pulls out a gun and kills everyone: his ex-wife, Fatemeh, as well as his son and daughter, Fatehemeh's sister, her husband and therefore Sahra, their 22-year-old daughter. Then he kills himself. 7 dead, found among the gifts a few hours later.

61. The disappearance of JonBenet Ramsey


6-year-old Little Miss Sunshine, JonBenet Ramsay disappears at the end of December 1996 in Colorado. The mother of the little one indicates that a demand for ransom has been sent to the family. Except that, during the beatings, the father of the little one ends up discovering his corpse in the basement of the house. JonBenet was strangled and hit on the head. It is December 25th. The family was suspected for a time, then cleared of all suspicion. It is not known who committed the crime. Merry Christmas to everyone.

62. The Good Samaritan and the Good Samaritan


Young actress Tricia McCauley was supposed to spend Christmas 2016 with her pals. On the road, she meets a hitchhiker and stops. After all, it is the spirit of Christmas to help each other. Imagine Tricia as some kind of perfect, talented, vegan girl and all, eh, that's important for the future. Because Tricia never makes it to Christmas dinner. On the other hand, she uses her credit card a lot of times to make large withdrawals. On December 27, we find his body rolled up in a ball in his car. Tricia was raped, beaten and strangled. The hitchhiker, Duane Johnson, is found shortly after. And there, he explains that in reality he just helped Tricia kill herself because she really wanted to. And that he didn't rape her since she agreed. In short, a simple Christmas present, a service rendered in turn to a good Samaritan woman.

63. The date gone wrong


December 2015. Katie Locke, a 23-year-old teacher, has a date with Carld Langdell, a lawyer she knew on a dating site. The evening is going well. So much so that they decide to go together to a very nice hotel in London, the Theobalds Park Hotel. Except that Langdell strangles Katie in the bedroom, before raping her post mortem. Then he wraps his corpse in a quilt which he throws in the thickets. Katie's corpse is found on Christmas Day. Ah, Langdell had had a short stay in a mental hospital, during which he explained to a nurse that he fantasized about slitting a girl's throat. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.

64. The haunted stone


This Inca legend tells the story of Túpac Yupanqui, son of the sun, who liked to party after winning a battle. One day when he was putting down a rebellion, he had a pretty little captive handed over to her to rape her in a cool way. Except that the prisoner already had a lover and did not have a mad desire to be raped. At night, she runs away with the guy she's in love with and the two get caught up. Tupac set them on fire. Since then, a stone has been found there, the shape of which is exactly similar to the girl's body. You should not go there at night, for fear of being tormented by the spirit of the haunted stone.

65. The mourner


The legend dates back to the 16th century. In Tenochtilan, Mexico, locals roamed their homes at night, so as not to be tormented by the spirit of a woman wandering the streets in tears. The mourning woman wandered around the city, before stopping in the central square to pray. Every night, the woman disappeared around Lake Texcoco. Those who dared to approach him disappeared in troubled circumstances. The legend has variations throughout the entire South American territory.

66. El chupacabra


Literally the goat sucker. A strange being from Puerto Rico who eats animals, or rather the blood of animals, vampire style. Apparently, there is evidence of a kind of biped that would attack at night and never leave a trail. The animal was supposedly seen all over South America: legend has it that it was of extraterrestrial origin or that it was the result of failed scientific experimentation.

67. La Tunda


This legend of the Colombian Pacific coast evokes a mysterious, semi-monstrous woman who would lure the locals into the jungle to keep them prisoners and kill them. She disguises herself as a loved one of her victim before making him swallow poisonous langoustines which force him to remain eternally in a state of trance. It mainly attacks children.

68. El Imbunche


A small Chilean child entrusted to wizards and become monstrous. His face is fixed to the back of his head, his fingers and ears are hooked. El Imbuche imitates animal sounds and practices black magic. It feeds on fresh meat.

69. The penitent


A little old woman who takes taxis in Mexico to get to church. She asks the taxi to wait for her, goes to the church, comes back and asks to go to another church. From church to church, the taxi driver finally brings the old woman home: as payment, she gives the driver a ring, asking him to come back the next day to get his money. The next day, when the driver returns, he is told that the old woman in question has been dead for several years.

70. La Cegua


A supernatural being who pursues and punishes unfaithful and / or picolos men. It would be the spirit of a young Costa Rican condemned to wander on deserted roads and seduce men: she gets caught hitchhiking, lets herself be flirted a little, then trades her pretty face for a dead horse's head with rotting skin hanging down all over the place. There, generally, the men shout.

71. The whistler


You have to be careful in the Venezuelan jungle at night. We might well come across the whistler, a 6-meter tall giant that moves as discreetly as an ant and chooses its victims from among the stray walkers. To find out he's around, it's simple: he whistles non-stop and his huge bag contains the clashing bones of his victims. He sucks the blood of drunkards and flirtatious people who return home after a good night's sleep.

72. El Pombero


This Paraguayan legend relates to a little elf, Pomberito, who is rather nice with the peasants to whom he agrees to render services by, in return, receiving offerings every night for 30 days. But if a peasant forgets to make the offering, he runs the risk of not very cool reprimands, such as death, for example.

73. The ramp house


In Mexico, an abandoned and half-built house borders the feet of a mountain. The house has ramps and is said to have been built for a little girl in a wheelchair. This little girl would have died falling from the second floor, paving the way for a long series of accidents and deaths of all kinds: two workers died during the construction of the house. At night, you would hear screams in the house and see silhouettes.

74. The family scammed for over twenty years


An American knew that her parents had been victims of identity theft twenty years before realizing she too. She figured out that the person who had done that at the time had probably recovered her identity at the same time, and either way she was right. After the death of her mother, she discovers with her father that in reality it was the late mother from the beginning. Indeed this one had made a credit card in the name of his daughter. Together they went back over twenty years of frauds and realized that she had also scammed the grandfather for $ 1,500. We obviously do not take everything to the grave.

75. The Lille student registered at the Banque de France


It all starts the day Maya, a 20-year-old student, has her wallet stolen in the metro. Some time later she realizes that three loans have been taken in her name and that a loss of 59,600 € means that she will become stuck in the Bank of France and banned from banking. The discovery of unpaid train fines as well as other debts in her name follows, which plunges her into a hell of administrative procedures to prove her innocence. And it's still very loaf to have to proclaim your innocence all the time because of a nice scam.

76. The woman who begins to suspect her husband of leading a double life


In 2008, a Franco-Turkish couple living in Orléans began to receive mortgage payments for purchases and loans they had not made. The wife even goes so far as to imagine a double life for her husband on the move. It is precisely the wife who will conduct an investigation which "would make the private detectives pale" as the representative of the public prosecutor pointed out during the hearing. She will trace all the information and find that her husband's identity has been sold on a network and bought by a Turkish national living quietly in the city of Caen. She now calls herself Sherlock Holmes. No that's wrong, but she could.

77. The man whose identity has been stolen for 17 years


In 2004, Loïc received a phone call from a bank branch in Toulouse (a city he did not live in) which informed him that his accounts had been transferred. Not being at the origin of the action, an investigation is opened and we find a total of five people who pretended to be him. For 17 years, he constantly dealt with bailiffs, administrations and banks. In total, 17 bank accounts, problems with CAF and social security, ten telephone lines, various consumer credits were reported. Today he has a psychiatric follow-up and is under medication. At the time, he was forced to stop studying law and political science.

78. The Australian woman who got involved in a murder


We arrive on the heavy. An Australian woman living in Israel who is 6 months pregnant learns over the radio that she is wanted for the murder of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh. She realizes that three Australians (including her) had their identities usurped in this affair and that false passports (including one in her name) have been found. So she freaked out but in the end we quickly understand the scam and she is not worried.

79. The mother who had only guaranteed the rental of her son


When she sends the file for the rental of her son's apartment, this woman is far from suspecting the various scams that will follow. She first receives a file for the purchase of automobile insurance. She contacts the mentioned mechanic and realizes that someone has bought a used vehicle in her name. A few days later a credit organization tries to withdraw € 300 from his account. History repeats itself three times, three vehicles purchased, three different credit organizations. It's just the horror for the poor lady whose case is still pending.

80. The student who has been declared a child


Then 25 years old, a student of Congolese origin holding a master's degree learns that it is forbidden to issue checks following an incident on a new account. He goes to the agency and learns that a client has usurped his identity. He files three complaints without anything moving forward. A judge finally gives an order dismissing his complaints. He later learns that his usurper has been convicted of forgery and forgery in the Congo and returns to the police station where he is offered to "negotiate with his usurper" (nice). One day, he discovers that a little girl is declared dependent on him, even though he has no children. Finally confused with the con artist, he was even taken into custody before the court understood his mistake.

81. The employee of the fraud department who messed around a bit


An American IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has spent years helping people who are victims of fraud. In reality, she was stealing their identities in order to defraud herself. For over three years she used IRS computers to retrieve people's data (names / dates of birth / social security numbers) in order to defraud reimbursement services. In all, she raised nearly $ 400,000 before being arrested and sentenced to nine years in prison.

82. My parents' note that I forged not to go to class


I was in 4th and I'm not very proud of this anecdote. I had forged my father's signature so as not to go to sports class on a Friday afternoon. Everyone saw nothing but an old-fashioned old cop who didn't get it and checked every apology. He worked for years on the “4th D apology affair” in order to corner me and he finally got there over twelve years later. Today I write this top from my cell, consumed by remorse. DON'T FRAUD.

83. Lost, or prisoner


This feeling, in a dream, refers directly to the perception that we have of reality in relation to the path to take, in any field whatsoever. The feeling of being out of options or having too many options can create a stress that must be identified in order to get rid of these nightmares. Without a suitable response, this nightmare is often the first step before moving on to the next ones.

84. In free fall, or drowned


This sensation usually occurs in a context of overwork. The stress is then “internalized” and accumulated to take the form of this nightmare. It is precisely the reactions you will have during this fall that will translate your way of seeing the problems in reality.

85. A machine or a phone that does not work


Unless you have experienced these worries too often with technology, this type of nightmare can turn out to be symptomatic of a feeling of loss: the estrangement of a loved one, physical or emotional, or the feeling of having without the wanting to erect a barrier with his entourage. If this nightmare is recurring, ask yourself about the relationship you have with your "friends" and if you haven't let it all rot a bit.

86. Naked in a public place


Getting naked by accident is a fairly clear representation of secrets that we do not want to reveal. The difficulty of "getting naked" literally shows itself in nightmares, and the awkward feeling you experience in your dreams must be a little like the one you fear if more is learned about you. You may need to assume a little more who you are and to relativize the judgment of others, you will live the better.

87. Natural or man-made disaster


This type of nightmare is often fraught with meaning: a disaster dream would refer to an imminent "disaster" in reality. It is therefore important to identify what, in our dream, makes us helpless and to try to determine which event of our reality plunges us into this state and constitutes a source of stress sometimes unconscious.

88. A failed exam


The first relationship we have with a possible failure haunts us long after the end of our schooling. This fear of being evaluated illustrates the feeling of deserving or not what one has. If we did an objective review of what you have achieved in your life, would you be satisfied? If you dreamed of a copy of immaculate whiteness, it might not be.

89. The loss or destruction of his house


A house illustrates the dichotomy between the desire to preserve what we have inside and the image and solidity that we show on the outside. Your home is you. If your nightmare shows destruction or theft inside this house, in the privacy of your walls, this should be understood as a feeling of betrayal, or a fear of being manipulated.

90. Car breakdown


As with the house, the vehicle you are in symbolizes your own body. The car shows an impeccable exterior appearance when the mechanics stop, you have to understand this image as the difference in perception that we have on the outside and inside. Heading straight for a crash betrays a feeling of weakness or lack of control over one's own life.

91. Injury, illness or death


Beyond this belief which wants that "if one dies in a dream, one dies in reality", it is necessary to relativize the gravity of this kind of vision: certainly, this morbid appearance in dreams can be compared to the report that we have death, when it concerns a loved one for example. But sometimes it is lighter, and this death can illustrate a change in his own life, which implies a new era. New job, stop smoking, buy a hybrid car, you kill the old "you" to be reborn in a Prius.

92. Prosecuted or attacked


If it is universally shared, it is because this dream appeals to an instinct to flee from what, it seems, is stronger than us. According to Freud, this dream manifests the anxiety of the individual, whatever the seriousness of this concern. We think we can deal with these little worries, your nightmares show you not, and that you have to face them. Little more: if the pursuer has a knife or a long object, it is certainly a sexual representation, which you flee or to which you want to give in with guilt.

93. The Banshee


When we see a messenger from the other world disembark, we don't expect her to tell us a Belgian joke, in general, it is to announce an imminent death. It's a bit like the White Lady of the corner. Afterwards, depending on the region, she acts as a mourner, a crier or she washes the dead. Anyway, she doesn't have a very funky job.

94. The Merrow


Merrow is the Gaelic equivalent of a mermaid. There are female Merrows but also males. The former are beautiful, like the classic mermaids. The second on the other hand are simply disgusting (pointed teeth, green hair, and very ugly, in short the lookalikes of the singer of the Pogues ). Besides their beauty, the female Merrows are no less beautiful whores who hate humans and do not hesitate to do dirty things to them. Usually seeing one was not considered a good sign. In fact most of the time that meant that we were either going to clamor pretty quickly, or suffer a good little family curse.

95. The Puck


As if "The Puck" weren't ugly enough, this creature is also adorned with nicknames as ridiculous as the nickname itself: "Jack with the lantern", "Will with the twist", or "Robin Good friend ". The Puck is a leprechaun who has the power to transform into an animal and who likes to play pranks. One of his favorite valves, for example, is pushing old ladies, and it's true that it's really fun, you should give it a try. Most of the time he uses his ability to transform into a black horse with fiery yellow eyes, an appearance he uses to freak out the villagers. We're not sure that's how he'll be able to make friends, but that doesn't seem to bother him too much.

96. Fir Darrig


It looks like a Leprechaun, with one little more characteristic: it becomes encrusted. He arrives at your house, takes the best seat by the fire and starts to dry his filthy clothes in your living room. If you don't comply, he'll piss you off. A kind of Michel Blanc in "Come home, I live with a friend" , but super nasty.

97. The Dullahan


These headless horsemen are a curious bunch. Capable of beheading themselves to mess around and to play bowls with their skulls, the Dullahan fear gold more than anything. So keep a coin on you (next to the garlic for vampires) to keep them away. Because know it, you shouldn't piss them off too much: they have a human spine as a whip and when they stop their horse, they cry out a name, and the person passes the weapon to the left immediately.

98. The Grogoch


Yes, "The", because this human-looking creature wouldn't have a female. So they live between guys in tiny and precarious huts, a cave or a hole doing the trick, they are a little dirty, but apparently very nice. A bit like our computer science students. The Grogoch will not hesitate, from time to time, to give a little help, in return for a pot of cream as remuneration. Last tip: he is very afraid of priests and he can, if necessary, make himself invisible. It is a superpower like any other.

99. inn Mac Cumaill


Finn is a warrior with universal knowledge. Already said like that, it imposes it. On the other hand, the way he got it is pretty lame. To be honest, he spent 7 years trying to catch a salmon with universal knowledge, and once he got there, he cooked it to peck it, so far so good. Except that during this cooking the juice of the salmon sprinkled his thumb. So every time he sucks his thumb he has access to universal knowledge (it's really practical in interrogation ...). And yes, this legend is one of the most nazi in the history of legends. According to this same legend Finn is not dead, he is just sleeping and will wake up to protect Ireland when needed. For now the English and Thierry Henry sleep soundly, but you never know.

100. Les Cluricaunes


An umpteenth derivative of Leprechaun but in a drunken version. If you behave well they will protect your wine cellar, but if you mess around they will empty your barrels and let your wine rot. Most of the time they are old and overall they are known to be fat lazy. Their favorite hobby: riding sheep ... In short, they look pretty cool.
