Bed Shaking


OOne night I was with my family watching scary movies. Everybody was falling asleep so we just went to bed. My little brother was scared so I went to sleep with him. I couldn't really sleep I was the only one awake. I started to feel the bed shake but I thought it was probably my imagination or my little brother moving around. I fell asleep but woke up when I felt the bed shaking harder, this time I got freaked out. I felt even more scared when I remembered something...

I dropped my brother of to school ne morning when I came back I went back to sleep. I was awakened when I felt the bed start to shake. I got scared because I was alone in the room so I went to sleep in another room and felt nothing.

After I remembered that I didn't think it was my little brother anymore the bed kept shaking. I heard that if you swear at the ghost or whatever is there it would go away. I started to swear at it and the bed stopped shaking, I felt better than suddenly my little brother opened his eyes and started to say "he's going to come back", and he kept repeating this I kept asking him what was he talking about then he just closed his eyes and started snoring again. I told my friends and family and they got creeped out.

i have never believed in ghost and goblins, flying saucers, nor am I really religious. I do recall however bed shaking when I was younger. Its only in recent months I started thinking back about this stuff. So I went on line and have found it seems to be allegedly fairly common from what I have read. My experience occurred from about the age of 5 to about 16. It would only last for a few seconds, usually occur not long after I got into bed from memory and would happen only once during the random nights it seem took place. I guess this is why I dismissed it even at a young age as something I had imagined, or just me moving about in the bed, etc. But thinking back I can remember being awake, and I'm sure the motion was not caused by me. The last time it happened I remember the shake of the bed being more pronounced, lasted longer, and I felt the end of the bed drop to the floor a slight amount. After that it never happened again. I never looked to the end of the bed, I was scared too. In addition to all this, and again when I was younger I would have detailed de-ja-vu dreams. I also had a few recurring dreams that would only last a few seconds it seemed, but would wake me up at the end. Some of you more experienced folk out there might be able to give me feedback as wtf was happening back then. 😳

You said it was at night & everyone was sleeping you were the only one awake, but then you said it was morning & you took your brother to school so it couldn't be him moving around? Which is it? If you're going to make a story up you should get it straight & at least proof read. Am I the only one who caught this? Or am I confused?

That is really creep, "he's going to come back".
Maybe your little brother contacted the ghost.

If you really want to talk to this ghost then I recommend doing so just as if you were talking to any other person of the flesh. Your brother was in a sleep state - one where his spiritual self was in control and knew what was going on - he relayed that to you. Be prepared and keep us posted. But no more disrespect towards this entity.

Just ignore it then it will go away. Ghosts draw off of your energy especially when it knows you're afraid. It'll be hard not to be afraid. It draws our energy when we're asleep.

Like your brother said, the ghost might come back and take revenge on you...
He's angry, maybe...
You should sorry the ghost for what you did, but if he didn't listened, get the house blessed...

I would recommend swearing at the ghost. Make them fear you instead. Plus, they can't really harm you, they only scare.

I don't think the ghost was a demon. Demon's aren't ones to be told to stop what they're doing. I'm not sure but it might just be a ghost trying to get your attention.

Your brother didn't seem that scared. Either he's used to it or senses no threat. Suprisingly, trusting a child's instinct with ghost is a good idea. Kids haven't been told not believe yet so they notice a lot more things than adults do. You can try to ask him about it again in a few days and see what he says.

wow! Good story! Lol! I think you made a mistake swaring at it! Maybe you should get a blessing or read a few prayers or use holy water or something. Oh and tell your mom! Just a few suggestions x 😊

That definetly is creepy. Something very similar happened to my sister and she ran to my moms bedroom frightened. (But she is already 22 years old). And then it happened to my son.

Okay, ghosts a.k.a. Demons (yes, demons) have a little (but ultimately ravaging) temper, so if you provoke them, they might really disturb you, just as your brother said, I know these is wierd but these things also need our respect, so if you experience it again, just enjoy the feeling of fright (even though it's not really that fun) because they can't even do you harm, just scare,

If all else fails, try reading the Bible, and I'm not pushing religion to you, okay, (sorry) since it has some parts where demons are mentioned and the way they are banished (Gone, Disappear, Etc.) are also mentioned, so I'm not talking religion okay? Really sorry,,,,

I hope this helps... 😊

that's a lie! When I lose my patience with spirits,demons, or whatever I swear until they leave me alone. They will only go away if you show you are not afraid, but if they can see your fear that will piss them off because they will think you are wasting their time. TRY IT. If you are a person who has low patience or a lot of attitude it will work. Most of the time they will leave me alone after a few seconds of going out on them. 😁 just remember to not fake it. 😠

wow, that's weird. I don't think you should swear at the ghost, because, like what your brother, said might make the ghost angry and the ghost might come back, and shake the bed again. I would but a cross next to every bed and sprinkle holy water on all the beds to. Maybe that will help.
