Tapping sounds around the room

15 posts in this topic

Whenever I'm in an intense mindset I notice things start tapping around the room. Its an innocuous sound that doesn't sound out of the ordinary but the strange part is there is no reason that random things should be making tapping noises. I've noticed it most often in electronic devices. I'll be sitting them and I hear a loud sound come from the DVD player, almost like a stone hit it but it sounds like its coming from inside the device. Other people have noticed this too and confirmed that its pretty weird. I've also noticed it happen with walls and doors. Happened to my front door once, my granny was sitting in the room and when she heard it she had a look of shock on her face, probably because it wasn't a sound that could be made by someone knocking or throwing a pebble at the door so it was very out of the ordinary for a sound like that to randomly come from the door. I ran to the door and opened it to see if anyone was around but there was nobody. Funnily enough something similar happens to my dad when he is in intense mindsets. Lights flicker around him. Thats a more common thing, thats called sliding. I've never heard of this random noise thing though. The sound always appears to originate from a single point and in some rooms I noticed it will predominantly come from one area. For example in my old house, I'd be in the TV room a lot and it seemed to always come from the DVD player. In my bedroom now it seems to come from under my desk. I have a laptop on the table but I never heard anything come from it, I can't pinpoint where the sound in my bedroom comes from but its the same kinda tapping sound. I stayed the night in a friends house once and it was coming from his projector. Can anyone here relate to this?

Something that happens to me is that in the dead of night when I can't fall asleep, I'll hear this odd sound. I usually attribute it to various electronices whirring but the thing is that I never notice them unless it is extremely silent and I'm trying to fall asleep. I sometimes imagine that its the sound silence makes :lol: I also remember the sound whenever I read "the silence was deafening".

The tapping is odd especially since others can hear it too. This would mean its not all in your head. Do other people hear the tapping when alone or do you have to be with them? One of the more mundane things you can look into is windows and like. Also you could try getting rid of the desk and see if the tapping has shifted. You could also ask your friend if you can take apart the projector :tu:

Hopefully you figure out whats going on and when you do tell us.

I have the same thing, especially when things go quiet (kind of what was stated above). Whether im outside, or inside, you sure can hear better and hear more.

Could you explain "I'm in an intense mindset" more?

Maybe termites or ants? they tend to make noise like that and you can't really hear until its quiet.

I've heard this as well. Happens to my TV in my room. I always thought that it was gravity somehow influencing the parts inside the TV but I'm not sure.

Similar to the sound ice makes when it starts to crack up....Yeah I have some familiarity with the experience though is it actually the first time I have ever discussed the matter on the internet....I feel it is related to telekinetic ability.

By conducting a search upon "Paranornal and hearing tapping sounds." are also other opinions

Have also considered, that is could have something to do? With those who know things about the future.

Any thoughts?

Just pretend the tapping noise doesn't exist.

Some of the sounds can be debunked, since electronics tend to make sounds as the parts expand and contract due to temperature fluctuations. The problem with debunking all of them is that sometimes the items are off for hours and in the middle of the night we will still hear loud whacks coming from them. I've also actually seen a shadow being in front of the dresser that has the TV and all of the electronics on it. It had its "hands?" on the boxes and was looking at the blank TV screen. So whatever entities seem to be exploring our home, also seem to be very interested in electronics. We will also often hear loud bangs coming from our dressers. They aren't soft taps. It seems like they are intended to get our attention, keep us awake, or wake us up in the middle of the night.

cnidocyte any update?

I doubt if you'll get a reply. The OP hasn't been active on this site since Sep 06 2010

Hi,

I joined this message board so I could respond to your post cnidocyte. I have a very similar experience to you. I sometimes think about intense or disturbing things and breathe intensely but quietly. I can feel my body twitch internally as I breathe but no one around me seems to be able to see it or hear it. I've asked my sisters and close friend. However, when I feel this way, I hear tapping around the room, from the walls or ceilings I'm not really sure, and people around me can hear it too. It happens when I twitch while breathing intensely. Your the first person who I've ever heard of having a similar experience. I have some theories on what it could be. It honestly disturbs and weirds me out a lot. I wonder if a dog or cat can somehow sense the sound or vibration in a house or apartment in the neighborhood through electric wires or some type of plumbing or gas pipes that connect the houses and they're responding by tapping or pressing on the ground. It would be so great if you respond. I'd really like to talk about it with you.

In the final months of my father's life, he insisted that there were 'voices' inside the walls of his room. He also said, "I know you'll think I'm going crazy, but it sounds like there are firecrackers going off in my bed." He was insistent about these things and there was never a less superstitious or fanciful man than my dad. Since he passed, I've read that both of these events are, if not common occurrences, they are, at least, not uncommon among people who are terminally ill--, particularly those like my father, who, at 86, had chronic, serious issues like congestive heart failure, which he had for many years before dying of it. It was only in the last six months or so of his life that he began hearing these noises. They did not seem to frighten him particularly, and when I asked if he wanted to be moved to another room, he declined.

My take on it is that as the veil begins to lift between this world and the next, some people hear or see things that no one else can. For those who are not elderly or terminally ill, I would assume that it is a sign of some psychic ability that most people don't have.

I have this issue, but nothing to do with electronics. This happens in my bedroom and I have zero electronic in there. It started a year ago. I want a sound explanation as there HAS to be science behind it, right?

It's intense tapping. It'll wake me up. It'll go away when i ask it to. It orginates at one part of the room and moves around. It'll happen whether I'm in bed, sleeping, awake, standing somewhere else, or sitting down.

My boyfriend has heard it and experienced it stopping with me asking. He has experimented thinking that it's the bed that makes the sound but after countless efforts of shaking it, it did not make the sound start or stop.

It comes and goes. I try not to think about it. When I remember it was there, it happens. Lately it begins to originate in my headboard. One night I swear to goodness that the tapping was exactly mimicking the tune of my daughters sleep aquarium song. It may be moarse coding me, it goes tap tap tap, quickly then stops and does more quick tapping and then goes slow.

We're also experiencing crazy emotions in this house, my bf has been laid off and is extremely angry, angier than usual often causing him to not sleep with me up there so I experience these things alone while I sleep up there with my baby. I left for a week and when I returned, the tapping was extremely intense, he heard it too. It was intense for two days after I returned happening during the night and early hours of the morning and during the day when I was up there like something was welcoming me back.

I'm wondering if maybe an energy has manifested due to high anxiety and anger in my home but I don't know why it would be messing with only me and why it wouldn't want me to sleep.

One thing to mention, and I'm removing it today, is that I swear my grandmas house was haunted and my whole family will agree with me - but I have my deceased grandfathers rocking chair which came from that house. I just moved it into my room for the baby. It used to be in my sons room and he never slept through the night until I removed it. Since the chair has been in my room it's been weird and the tapping began. So...I'm getting it out of here and I will update this post if that helps.

If it does help, I'm getting my ass to a psychic lol because I've felt uncomfortable a few times in my room, enough times to feel like I have some sort of openness to hearing things that I don't want to believe.
