Identical interference

Very interested in this phenomenon. The strange thing is, my husband and i both have had these experiences for years, among others.Upon meeting, we felt instant knowledge/bonding & have been together since. We are both left handed, artistic, introverted people. We have both had these street light/ electronic equipment interference episodes since long before we met. Neither of us can wear a watch needing a battery, as they stop working within days.

I shut off streetlights almost daily

Didnt start noticing it until I was of driving age, but streetlights go out randomly when I drive by them. And it happens everywhere. Recently, I was at a backyard BBQ and their year has a stree lamp that hovers over their back wall, the light flickered on and off all night while I was there. I knew Forsure that it was something significant, but didn't know that other people had similar experiences. If it matteres, I am both a sun and moon sagitarius. So, the most purest of sag, not influenced by another sign. Not really into astrology, but it would be interesting to find out what some of your guys' signs are. Id like to know more about my energy, and if it can be controlled.

I have noticed this to the point of searching it out online, i also noticed that my bank cards only last a few days before the readers have trouble reading them.

Always knew something was up

I've notice street lights going off around me for years. My sister thought I was nuts when I told her about it until she witnessed it. I can't do it on demand. Some electronics will also act up around me, but not all. I always thought it was electrical energy that I was putting out.

Not sure I want this

I have had this ability since I was a child. But as of late it has become expensive and causing my children and myself to worry. The other day it happened at least a dozen times. In the last 4 years I have gone through 2 vcr/dvd players, 3 phones, 2 microwaves, numerous lamps and now my car is reacting to this. My car's electical system shuts down (everything, gauges, steering). I had it towed to the shop and when they are in it, it runs just fine and said they can't find anything wrong. I took it home and the next day it did it again. I just want to know if I can control it and how. My kids think I'm a mutant (kinda funny).

Happens To me...

I always walk around my neighborhood and streetlights always go off around me. I have no idea why, it doesnt seem like it happens to everyone. I just got back from a walk at about 9 o' clock and 2-3 streetlights went off. I dont control it obviously but when I walk by they just turn off. Also, my alarm wakes me up by playing the radio, when im laying in bed its all staticy but when i sit up (getting closer to my alarm) it gets clear...This always happens every morning....

YAY NOT ALONE!

I went by a street tonight and only one light went out, but it reminded me of how often this has happened. I would say it started a year or so ago. Some lights would go out in a row. Then the light outside my fiance's parents' house would go off and on ALL the time when I would pull into the driveway or go outside. They said until I started staying there that never happened. After reading these posts, it reminded me that when I turned 18 my grandma got me a nice watch from Kay Jewelers and 2 nights later it stopped working (my twin had one and her's stopped the same night). Also, whenever I would touch the radio at the past 2 jobs I had, they would become much clearer, but as soon as I moved away they would get staticy. When I moved into our new place, I got a lamp with a new bulb. Not even a week later the light blew. I replaced it at least 2 more times and each time a few days later it would blow again. Now I have 3 in my bathroom that aren't working and I just replaced one. Crazy!

cant keep a watch

when i was a child i thought everyone knew to be calm when turning on a light switch - otherwise you have to go get a replacement bulb. half a dozen people have watched tv because in the dorm lounge i would stand in front of my chair so we could get reception. during the commericals id sit down and the screen would return to snowy static. when i entered, the lounge was empty so i checked out the shows available. i knew csi was scheduled. the room filled and everyone realized tv was too staticy to watch - "no... i just have to stand here!" i said with glee happy to have company. and thats how we watched the hour of csi - i stood for the show and sat during the commercials. i thought this was normal! in 1982 my father gave me a digital watch that stopped when i wore it. his solution was to "give" it to my sister-and it started! I wanted "my" watch back! hed remove it from my sister's wrist (working) and return it to my wrist and it stopped w/n few minutes. no fun.

SLIders

For years I would wonder why lights and electronics would mess up on me especially street lamps. This would always happen with my best friend josh and I every time we went on a walk… Later around my mid twenties I started realizing that it had to be my own energy doing this.. Not only would street lamps act funny but almost every electrical appliance would act up and go crazy around me.. cell phones would charge or quickly decrease in battery, radio’s and tv’s would turn on and off the volume would turn up or down (you would even be able to see the lines like someone actually was pressing the button.. and recently I have notice that i cannot get around light switches without blowing the bulb (in one month we would go through at least 7 light bulbs in my home) needless to say we have learned to stock up on light bulbs, chargers and batteries…lol

I thought I was going crazy

The same thing happens to me when I am stressed agitated or my energy level is high. If I sit at a comuter it will freeze up or start acting insane. A perfect example I recently went to take a placement test for nursing school my anxiety was so high that as soon as I sat at the computer it started up. They had to move me to another one then that one started logging me out of every question.....the girl kept saying "This as never happened before, This is strange why are the computers doing this" I knew it was mebut didnt say anything. They moved me to another computer and it started again!! She finallh got so fed up tha she had me taking the test and logging back in after I got kicked out. It took me four hours to complete a two hour test that I failed becauss logging back in every two sec was to.distracting. I was very upset. I also have dreams that come true or bad feelngs when something bad is going to happen. I do have psychic abiilities I jusf dont know how to control them

SLI effect

This happens to me nearly every day. And it does happen or at least I notice it when I'm in a really good or bad mood. Especially when I'm angry. It seems to project out of me and I can feel it. My wife even says that she can feel my anger sometimes. I really think it is some type of telekinesis because in order for it to happen you have to be in a certain state of mind particularly strong emotions. It is yet another mystery of the mind.
