My first thought -- does this happen every time that you are afraid/really scared?
Did your father, or anyone else, feel the trailor shaking? Was there any noise (squeaking/creaking) coming from the trailor itself that might've told
whether or not it was really shaking?
((Are you sure you were awake? sounds silly, but the mind is a sneaky, convincing son-of-a....))
I know that fear can heighten the senses, as well as dull them. You can become hyper-sensitive, which heightens the 5 senses. Does it effect the 6th
sense? Might.. only way to find out is to try and re-produce it.. the situation, the emotion, et cetera.
I can add a story, altho I'm not sure if it's truly related or not... I was about 4, visiting my family in Germany -- a completely new everything
(new language, new people, new house, new bed, et cetera). It was pitch black (which, at that point, I'd never experienced). I was little, and I was
I was laying in a bed, on the side of the room; the bed was completely pinned in - wall on three sides, and a half-wall about a foot away on my left.
No way that bed coulda moved, right? Yeah, well, it moved. The bed swung out into the room! No noise, nada. I swung my right arm out, and should have
smacked the wall, and didn't.
I pulled the blankets over my head, and (if memory serves me) the bed moved back to it's correct (supposedly blocked in) position. (To this day, no
one really believes me because it's physically impossible for that bed to have moved anywhere.)
I've heard noises (claps, drum sticks clacking together) *in* my room that no one else has heard, and I've never heard since. (I lived in the same
house for 15 years.. I was 5 when it happened, and even tho I listened, memorized the sounds the house naturally made, I never heard them again.)
I've had someone sit on my bed, compress the blankets down -- and when I sit up and look, the blankets return to their original position. (No one has
ever answered me when I ask 'who's there?')
I've never had things shake, and without a point of reference (to know that the object is truly shaking) it's hard to say one way or the other.
That's the pickle of it, so it seems -- if you're *in* the trailor, or in my case in pitch black, how can you tell if the senses are telling the
truth or not?
The other thing to consider is the type of bed(s) on which you slept.. a thin frame will wiggle under the slightest movement.
Does stuff like this only happen when you're scared? Any other emotions trigger any other weird happenings?
