I'm glad to know that I am not the only one having this happen. I'm not sure about the rest of you, but my bad shaking has been going off and on
now for MANY years and I have actually moved to different towns and now a new country, yet it still happens. I've had brand new beds at least 4
times, so I know nothing is wrong with them. I have lived in apartments and homes, yet there was no major differences there.
-I do note that it only happens after I have been sleeping for either a very short time or after a few hours of sleep, but never when I am wide awake
laying or sitting on my bed, watching a movie or reading a book.
-The shaking movings are always side to side and always near the foot of my bed.
-I have experienced many times, but not as often as the bed shaking, the feel as though someone has just sat down at the foot of my bed.
-It seems as though when it happens one night, then it gets really persistent and happens more frequently, then will trail off for a while and not
happen at all.
-Sometimes I feel as though it is a mild occurrence and it goes away after just a short bit, but then sometimes it seems more aggressive (not scarily
aggressive, but more annoying like it is disturbing your sleep).
Normally, when this happens, I ignore it all for the most part, believing that if it is a spirit or what have you, then they are just let me know they
are there. My husband died instantly in 2000 in a motorcycle accident, so in my own little way, I like to believe that he's just letting me know he
pops in when he can. Or that if it was another spirit, then what's a harmless lil shake?
Last night or rather around 4am-ish I couldn't sleep a wink, but then I finally dozed off for what seems like barely 10 minutes. The shaking is what
woke me up. So I do what I normally do and swish my feet around in my bed as if I'm trying to shoo it away or something. But it kept doing it and I
was trying to sleep before the sun started blaring into my window. The room is fully lit from the sun on the horizon, so this time I decide to
actually sit up in bed and try to look at the bed and see if I could actually SEE the bed shake and to my surprise, I could. The bed and the blankets
were just rocking side to side the whole time I stared at it. So, what do you do? I just sat there and said, "what?" then the shake seemed to
lighten, then started back again, so I said, "can you please stop? I'm trying to get some sleep." So, it continued for about minute and then went
So that is my bed shaking confession. I've tried to look at it logically and try to think about all the various non-supernatural types of things that
can cause it, but since I've had this happen to me in every single place I have ever lived, then I can't see how it can be some kind of natural
That being said, I have had enough experiences throughout my life (quite a laundry list to be exact) even from a very young age, to personally believe
in the supernatural. Because when it happens to you, you can't dismiss it.
Thank you all for sharing your similar stories, it is nice to be able to see that there are others out there who experience the same thing. I wonder
why everyone, including myself state that they experience the shaking from side to side? I wonder how that may be signifiicant in any way?
