Unsure, Room Shakes


Until about 4 years after my family and I had moved into our current house, it had always been pretty much normal and peaceful. One day out of the blue, I was in the living room watching TV and the whole room started to shake, it was a light shaking, but enough to make pictures on top of tables and on the walls to shake also, only a little.

After this, on multiple occasions I would constantly for no reason at all wake up in the middle of the night to my room shaking. This really freaked me out, so I told my mom about it, and she told me that her room had been shaking too. Even so, I decided that I would sleep with her for a while. We told my dad and my brother but they just said we were crazy, and that they had never felt anything.

Well it seems that only the front of my house would shake, which would be my room, the living room, and my mom's room. I know it's weird but my mom and dad don't sleep together, and have separate rooms. So that explains why my brother and dad had never felt any shaking. The shaking in the living room would happen around 9-10 pm, in my room very late, 12-3am and my mother's room 3-4am.

One day my brother was also watching TV in the living room and ran into my mom's room telling her he had felt the room shake. I was so freaked out, and I complained to my mom every single day. My mom told me that one day she told the "ghost" off and that after she had done that the house stopped shaking, which it did.

I really don't know if ghosts are real, or if the house really did stop shaking because of what my mom did. Please I would like to know if there is a reasonable, normal explanation for this. Or anything that would tell me what it could be thanks.

I live in Northern Massachusetts, where we do not get earthquakes, and if we do it does NOT happen casually and occasionally.

I don't know if you ever seen the television show Ghost Hunters, but there was an episode where a family was experiencing the same thing as you. The woman claimed her living room would vibrate and shake. When they investigated her claim it turned out she had an old water main system under her house in which water still flowed through. That was the cause of the vibrations and shaking. It's worth checking it out, if it will give you piece of mind. Hope that helps 😊
