I have experienced shaking beds many times before. Its as if someone trips on the bed waking me out of a sound sleep.
I've also felt someone sitting on the bed, and who can forget my haunted pillow!
I've told the story here before about the pillow i had and the pillow HAD A HEART BEAT...thump....thump...thump....I threw that sucker away and went and got new pillows and never experienced this again!!!
I can deal with the bed moving but the pillow blew my mind!!

Hi! Sorry to say that it is nothing paranormal. It is a very well documented 'symptom' of hypnogogic/hypnopompic hallucination - AKA night terrors. This is a common experience for many people, myself included. the shaking is minute body spasms which will not be detected by the other person in the bed. Try to move your little finger or 'pinkie' and it should wake you up enough to stop the bed shaking.
Often stress makes this experience more vivid and frequent. Hope this helps.

The entire phenomena cannot be explained away so easily. Many people experience movement of the furniture or bed while they are wide awake and alone. The bed shaking covers a broad spectrum. From the feeling that someone has jumped on the bed to a single violent push and then into all kinds of different shaking.
