    OK...

    ...this might sound a little silly, but, my bed shakes by itself.

    No, nothing Exorcist like but it does move or rather kinda vibrates a little at night.

    For the last year I wrote it off as either small quakes or strong winds but last night, last night I know neither was happening and still, my bed was kinda quivering.

    It's kinda nice, relaxing even, though it panics me sometimes as I think it's the start of a quake, that's how much I notice it.

    No, no electronics involved either and as far as I'm aware, there is only little old me in there.

    I thought it must be a transferred vibration from somewhere in the building, but last night, I put my best blood hound nose on and found... well, nothing...

    ...so I'm starting think it might be something I'd rather not know about, if you catch my drift.

    Anyone anything to advise?

    A little worried and perturbed pup, x.

    Try that Jurassic Park thing where you put a cup of water on the bed. If there are vibrations, you will see the ripples in the water.

    Did you notice that you live 10 feet from the train tracks and that a freight train just happens to pass at the same time.

    Does this only happen when you are awake? Are you on the ground floor? Is there a basement or anything else beneath you?

    It may be earthquakes. In my mom's old house the cellar door didn't quite shut right and would rattle when trucks drove by a quarter mile away. It was perfectly sensitive to any footstep in the house or even the gallop of a horse. That stopped once the house was remodeled.

    Not sure how this could effect a bed though as beds are usually pretty heavy. I say try the water ripple test or use a plate with a ball bearing on it.

    Are you sure your house isn't built on an old Maori graveyard? Have all the previous owners suffered gruesome and mysterious deaths? Have you had any close relatives die? Are you sensitive to spirits? Really, we need to know more.

    Ask the neighbours around you bro, and ask if they experience any vibration.

    If I were there there would be a hell of a lot more than a vibration in the bed, put it that way lol!

    But if the beds only shaked when you moved there and no where else there must be a logical explanation that the neighbours may shed some light on... If its happened elsewhere i'de start to worry!

    Wonderful idea! I'll try it.

    Please God, I hope not!

    No... nothing in the news, building is only a few years old, a few hundred apartments.

    No, thankfully.

    Yes... sorta, but have never had any problems or fears of it. Never been mistreated by it.

    What else might help?

    I had this happen to me once. My bed lifted up, then slammed back down - with me in it.

    Turns out, I was nearby a woman doing palm readings, and I was on the other side of her curtain at the club, on a chair (Unknowingly)

    My friend explained it to me that I may have brought home a spirit with me that night as I was depressed (vunerable) and it played with me that night.
    It went away after that.

    I and 'they' have an understanding, we both know each other's there and we leave each other alone, it's worked out just fine so far.

    I think it might be vibration travelling through the building from the wind out side. When it's windy, the wobble is pronounced, but I don't get why it's there, although softer, even when the weather is calm.

    Last night, it felt like the bed was rocking me... I don't know why I'm not more weirded out really.

    lol.

    Well my bet is an appliance somewhere in the building just so happens to be nestled up to a supporting wall or column that just so happens to have a resonance frequency in line with spin-cycle or whatever and that causes your bed to vibrate.

    I woke up with the whole building vibrating a few times these last two weeks - they're flattening the site next door to build new apartments, and the roller they use is big enough to make the building shake.

    How old is your mattress pup? I dare say it could be riddled with fleas and or ticks!

    Time for a bath!

    Now don't be like that, its just a bit of water!

    GOD DAMN IT PUP, DO YOU HAVE TO SPRINT AROUND THE WHOLE HOUSE DRIPPING WET!

    :rolleyes::biggrin1:

    If you think it's a spirit, simply tell it to leave.
    "Please Leave. You do not belong here. This is a house of (insert your god)"

    Say it aloud in the room. Generally spooks like that will leave, unless there's some other agenda.... but I think you would have seen that before this.

    How tall is the apartment complex? If it's only a 1 or 2 story building, it shouldn't be swaying at all.

    I bought a house where the Wife had died (never heard the cause, but I can guess), and he died shortly after he accepted the offer. (like minutes later)

    Just about every year, I hear a horrible racket in the spare bathroom tub. It sounds Exactly like a person falling in the tub. I rush in, and...nothing. No soap, no shampoo bottles, nothing.

    Here's the other thing - Delta would NOT go in that bathroom. He would go in my master bathroom no problem - but the spare bathroom, forget it. He actually bit me when I tried to take him in there for a bath. He went into my bathroom instead and was fine.

    Luckily, I don't have any issues here. I think everything Ive done to the house is positive, so there's nothing for them to be upset about. All unfinished things now finished, plus added goodies.
    Most of all - its quiet. No racket, just peaceful.

    There are laundries in the building but two floors above and below and to the far left and right of my location in the building... it would have to be a very odd series of events to get the vibration to my bed.

    The mattress is clean and we pups like bath time, though, cleaning up after running about the house covered in water is a pain... I dunno, call of the wild...

    If it is something I wouldn't like it to be, then so far, I've picked up nothing that would make me think it is for sure.

    I do know how to be asked to be left alone too, no joy either.

    It's a 7 story building, it's kinda flexible due to quake regulations I think. You can denfinatly feel it move in high winds, which NZ is famous for and earthquakes.

    I guess it's just a bit weird and a little annoying rather than scary... at the moment.

    I say get in a Maori witch doctor and cleanse the thing. A simple rite or something should suffice. Agree to pay ahead and only a fixed fee. See what happens. Do you have any friends who do this kind of thing?

    No, not really a common skill found on the old CV, lol.

    If I felt threatened, or seriously scared, I would looking to a clearing or a blessing, I've seen first hand how this can actually make somewhere 'feel' entirely different and am not opposed to it, however it works.

    I think for the moment, I will investigate...

    OK, all's been quiet for quite some time on this front, but last night, well...

    About 0600, 0630 this morning I thought we we're have an earthquake only to wake up and realise it wasn't the whole room shaking, just either me, or the bed.

    Don't get me wrong, I was aware of it distinctly moving but I wasn't panicked of afraid, it was actually oddly reassuring and quite gentle even comforting but what ever it was, in my half awake state of what-the-fucks-happening, it WAS vibrating?

    What the fuck is that about?

    More so, why was it comforting and not alarming?

    Pup, x.

    Obviously you are the recipient of good vibrations (or you have The Beach Boys playing as a sound track to your dreams).
