While trying to fall asleep at 3am i tried just to concentrate on nothing with my eyes closed to see what would happen and as usual nothing happened and i was wide awake. So my next approach was just to stare and focus on my window. After about 1 minute with out me moving my eyes the whole window frame shifted to the right (like a strafe right in a video game ). note that my eye where not looking left and right. they remained focused on the same spot regardless of the weird movement of the window..
It started happening faster, then it was moving up and down. While that was happening
i started to get shivers all over my body they became more and more intense after about 10 minutes of this i broke my concentration and was tripped out for a while then i fell asleep...

so basically... what the hell ?

Pictures do such things as that to me,especially, for some odd reason, when I am over at my niece's house. Her place is rather strange to begin with,but I desist..

Anyway, sometimes when there are two photos beside one another, if I focus on one, the other sort of "blacks" out.. There is like a huge black hole in the wall..then when I return my focus on both pictures again,once again it is there.
It's weird.

There are tons of things that could have caused this. A few questions:

1 - was your room completely dark? And, if so, what could be seen through the window?

2 - Was it raining/snowing outside that might have caused a heavy condensation on the window.

3 - how tired were you? If your eyes were tired or strained, focusing them on something as fuzzy/vague as a window in a dark room could cause them to see such things.

That happens to me all the time, only with my ceiling, all the tiles just seem to shift around and black spaces just apear, you most likely were just over tired and your eyes were strained and unnable to focus proporly, if you try focusing on other things it will most likely happen as well, but only under the same conditions, tired eyes and unless you sleep with the light on, darkness.

This sort of thing happens to me too if I stare up at the ceiling looking at stucco, or office ceilings with dots. The dots begin to move all around, and some times it looks like the ceiling is moving, and made out of liquid.

I'm pretty sure it is just an optical illusion...

Speaking of optical illusions,here is an awsome one..

Here is what you do, stare at the four dots for about fives seconds,close your eyes and tell me what you see.
Really cool stuff

With an organ like your eye, you are focusing the image you see through liquid, unlike with a camera that focuses through either air or a vacuum, depending on the quality of the camera. It could be, and most likely is, some mundane effect of your eyeball shifting ever so slightly and changing the fluid in your eye, thus shifting were the image focuses on your retina, giving the appearance of the window moving, when it is really the fluid in your eye that is refracting the light in your eye in a slightly different way.

This is roughly the same principle as a technique that I use to enter a meditative state. I have detailed it elsewhere on the forums, but in a nutshell, I concentrate on an object long enough and eventually everything else is muted in my vision until only the focal object remains.

Others that have tried this technique have described that things in the peripheral often take on a liquid appearance, or in some cases seem to be made of marching ants. Though I have not experienced that myself, it seems to be what you are experiencing, with the image of the window moving about.

Though the cause could be mundane, the effect could be profound, if you use it as a portal to your inner self. Through meditations, you can achieve many personal goals, and some believe that it can lead to spiritual enlightenment, or even ESP or contact with aliens.

Your truth is what you make of it.

I have something that happens to me that is a little different. If I get up from laying down, or from a nap I tend to get big black smudges that are glowing all around whatever I am looking at. It is there glowing and in about 4 seconds they all disappear. I think this has to do with something when I stand up after laying down.. I dont know, but I can understand what you are getting..

^ Whenever i get up from sitting down i get tiny white sparking lights at the edge of my vision for a few seconds... Like twinkling if that makes it easier to understand. Completely explainable i know, but it looks cool when it happens

To continue on what Hank said:

Everyone has a dominant eye which can cause all sorts of odd looking views when staring at something and then just doing subtle things such as blinking or closing an eyelid, etc...

To find out which eye is dominant, with arms outstretched make a triangle by touching thumb tips together and then index finger tips together. Now find an object a few feet away (such as a light switch). Looking thru your triangle, close one eye and then the other. If the object stays inside the triangle then that is your dominant eye.

Also, many people have what are called “floaters”. This is debris floating around inside that liquid Hank mentioned. Floaters usually affect people as they get older and can be a real nuisance when they are in your field of vision, I should know. For more serious issues on this subject check out the link:

Another idea, and don't take this as anything other than a question, but have you experimented with drugs in the past? I have friends who have quite a bit and they still get weird drug-reminiscent visual anomalies occasionally, especially in dark rooms.
