Had an encounter last night that basically tops all the lesser ones I've encountered before. These are mostly centered on times when I've been in bed (not always sleeping), with one exception. I've felt a hand on my back before while laying in bed, I've been woken up abruptly when a close hamper was knocked over, heard footsteps in the room, etc.

But last night (early this morning, rather) was a lot more "up-close-and-personal". My husband has been on late shift lately, coming home at midnight, coming to bed anywhere from 3am-5am. This morning, around 3am, I'd rolled over to face his side of the bed after waking from a bad dream. I heard him sigh, and breathing. So I reached over to put an arm around him....he wasn't there. Turn over again to face my edge of the bed and I feel him climbing into the bed, finally. The bed rocks slightly, I feel the mattress depress behind me. So I reach a hand behind to feel that he's there. Once again, he is NOT. Now I'm really awake (O.O), laying there trying to be extra still and quiet and I'm still feeling the mattress depress behind me, like someone's there and trying to move closer. 4am, screw it, I'm getting up. I find him in the computer room watching Netflix.

Turns out he's felt similar things in the bedroom. He said some nights when he gets in bed, the bed is moving like I'm wiggling or tapping my foot (bad nervous tic of mine), so he usually slides a leg over only to find that I'm lying still.

I've tried doing a little research, but all I've found thats really solid is a consensus that Hauntings are spirits attached to a place, Poltergeists are spirits attached to a person and are bad. These occurences have followed me over four separate residences in 7yrs. I'm pretty sure its attached to me somehow, but it's not malevolent at all. Just.....there.

Any thoughts??

I have a good friend who's younger twin sister died when they were 4 years old. Apparently my friend says she sees a little girl from time to time peeking around the corner in her house or catches glimpses of a little child running around the back yard.

I never paid any attention really but she swears by it. Anyways, a few years ago there was a fire in the house next door to my friends. She lives alone and has two basset hounds.

Well she always keeps them inside, except for when she's home and lets them out in the back but when she's away the house is locked up tightly.

She comes home and sees the house next door on fire, the police and fire teams there and all the neighbors watching and runs up to her house to grab her dogs.

Well she tells me that the front door was unlocked but not only that, the back door, the side door, the door into the garage and every single window in the house including the tiny one in the bathroom. She doesn't see the dogs so runs outside and spots them a couple doors down calmly sitting on a neighbors lawn watching the commotion. Now she never lets them out because they run away but there they were, just patiently sitting there.

She said she asked the fireman if they let the dogs out and they responded that nobody had gone into her house or even knew dogs were there and her neighbors said the dogs were actually over on the lawn before the fire even broke out. They assumed she had let them out.

Now I do believe my friend because she is pretty down to earth so I don't know what to make of her story. I know she is paranoid about leaving her house unlocked and I have accidentally let her dogs out and spent hours chasing them around the neighborhood so it is very perplexing.

Perhaps there are friendly poltergeists in the world after all?

Have had something following me since I was a child (46 now). Only time it ever tried to hurt me is when the kids were little- when I would scold them it would throw things at me, and it didn't care how many witnesses saw it either (there were many). Other than that it likes to play harmless tricks every now and then just to show off.

Could be someone you know...or someone who likes the bed!
Is that new or have you had it a while?

Quagmire?


I would say... You have a haunting. Perhaps try find a reputable paranormal investigator to have a chat with. Best of luck

Nothing in your post suggests anything like a Poltergeist,if in fact they do exist.

I've had this happen to me as well.I'm inclined to believe that it has something to with the state of mind we're in as we're going to or coming out of sleep.Especially if we're used to having someone there.Just my two cents

hi.. sounds intense.. if its happening in multiple homes there is a link with you.. so you are spot on with that one.. im a healer/medium but my work has taken a heavy slant towards these type of paranormal issues.. so if you want i can take a look for you?? im seeing the energetic architecture of the problem.. so its a bit like a jigsaw puzzle at first, as im led to where needs addressing first, and as it all goes along it starts to unravel.. so if i tune in i will start to break things and remove ghosts if they are there.. is that ok? im happy to help..

Had 4 different beds in the 4 different residences that I've been in the last 7yrs. Aside from feeling the hand on me that one night, this latest experience is the "closest" this thing has gotten. I was literally wide-a$$ awake and could FEEL the bed depressing behind me.

I only mentioned the word Poltergeist because that's the only word I've found that describes the spirit attachment to a person...as opposed to a place. But I know it's not an accurate description because typical poltergeist reports have things flying about the room, doors opening & closing, impish/mischiveous(sp?) type stuff.

I thoguht about the sleep stage phenomena first...but during these "encounters" I wasn't anywhere near sleep, I was simply laying in bed. Very much awake. I dunno....

Thanks so much for info! I'm not exactly feeling threatened by whatever this is, I just want to know what it is. Whether it is someone I know, or just some manner of guide or guardian. These things started happening LONG before I lost anyone of real significant emotional attachment. I've actually thought about putting out some feelers for a local medium, or seer...someone who can narrow down what kind of entity this is.

I've had similar experiences, but only in this apartment. Sometimes it will feel like my bed slightly vibrating, like a small tremor. But I live in Vegas I don't think we get too many temors that I would feel. I've also had multiple moments where I feel like my cat has jumped on the bed, only to look and see he's not there. I figure maybe it was the cat jumping down, so I search and usually find him passed out somewhere else in the house.

Maybe you just have a lonely spirit that wants company. Thats what I think mine is, no negative feelings from it at least.
Great topic OP.
