Can You Turn Off Street Lights Just By Walking Under Them?? Strange Stuff

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My 23 year old daughter has noticed in the last couple of years that she can turn off street lights often by just walking or driving under them. She also has trouble with light bulbs blowing out frequently and other energy surges. She was surprised to find that there is a name for this. It's called "Sliding" and she has since found others who have observed the same kinds of things. Here is a great link to a page about the study being done on "Sliding".......
SLIDING WEBSITE Has Anyone Else Noticed That They Can Turn Off Street Lights??

Hey! That's pretty strange and it's never happened to me!Wow!



But for about five months a street lamp right close to our house never worked no matter how much they tried to fix it and stuff.. Spooky.

Where I used to live, the streetlight outside of my house always turned off when I walked out of the door to go to work in the morning. I thought it was maybe on a timer, and thought it strange that I would always step out at that exact time. Hmmmm..

I have never heard of this before, it's eerie. I only live about two blocks away from where I work, so I just walk to work in the morning. Last year, I noticed that a certain street light kept consistantly turning off just when I was approaching it, and this was the only street light I had to walk under. I thought that was really strange, and that it was caused by an electrical short or something. I haven't noticed any problems with anything else electrical except my computer. For the last few months it's had a really strange problem that can't be explained or fixed.

EDIT: I'm sure there is another less interesting explanation for the two things that I mentioned.

My daughter can turn off streetlights with such regularity that she can win bets about it with her friends. They are studying the phenomena. It's not paranormal or anything it supposedly has to do with the electrical energy that some people generate, usually when they are in their late teens and 20's. I guess there are still things we do not know about the human body and the things it can do.

IMO, that explanation makes sense. I noticed that people, both on the site you gave us the link to, and here on this thread, mention streetlights being affected more than they do any other object. I wonder why that is?

P.S. Now that I think about this, I personally know a few people who don't wear watches because their watch always stops working after they wear it a few days.

Well, the watches I wear run slower than normal. I have to check the time every two weeks. Sometimes I'm out by 5 minutes, sometimes 10 minutes. It usually happens when I'm super stressed out or upset. And the battery life in all the watches that I have ever worn, seem to last unusually shorter than normal. In one year, I had the battery changed so often, the jeweller inisited on sending it for repairs only to be told in the report that it was in perfect working order.

I remember when I was 8 years old and the day before my birthday, we discovered termites in the house. Everyone said that it would be alright. But after school the next day, I came home to find that all wooden fixtures in the kitchen had been ripped out, including the kitchen sink, leaving remnants of termite trails and half live termites. That night, all the lights that I switched on blew.

At university, lights used to illuminate the safe walkways will flicker or dim as I walk past. That spooks me so much that I request to be driven to my car by campus security.

And I have to be careful with any card that has a magnetic strip such as a bankcard or credit card, otherwise I end up having to call up for a replacement one. I've replaced my bankcard three times this year.

Mags - Well, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. And, what from I've read, the phenomena seems to fade away as people age.

Wow what a trip!! Wasnt there a show called "Sliders" ? I cant remember if that is related...
post #12 of 24
Well, I always knew I had an "electric" personality!

Tybalt makes the streetlights in the IHOP parking lot turn off every time we go there
post #14 of 24
It happens to me ALOT, since I was in high school...

Must be my "magnetic personality" Hehehehehehe

So that's the name for it! I've never turned off street lights, but 9 out of 10 watches stop working when I put them on, computers and/or printers often go haywire, and I can absolutely forget using a camera (I now have two Polaroids and two digitals that sometimes work, and a 35 mm that I can't use at all.) I haven't noticed it getting any better with age - in fact, it has gotten worse.

OMG.Mike(my b/f) told me a few months ago that this was happening to him.I just thought he was crazy.
post #17 of 24
So that's the name for it! People tell me it's my EMP(electromagnetic pulse)aura! I don't think it's that strange. It's more of an inconvenience actually.

Are you talking about analog watches???

FYI, Analog watches will run either faster or slower when worn by people whose thyroid is acting up....
post #19 of 24
Any type of watch, actually. I now get a piece of plastic (1/4") put on the back of the watch, which really helps. It's funny that you should say that about thyroids - I have a hypoactive thyroid, and have been taking medication every day for twenty years. I think it has something to do with electricity, because of the cameras. I started using Polaroids because the batteries are in the film packs, and a lot of the pictures turn out. I get some very strange results with digital cameras (auras, blank spots, double images), though they work perfectly when somebody else is using my camera. It really is a pain.

I should add that there is a positive aspect. I work in a school where hundreds of photocopies are made every day. I have no idea how photocopiers work, but my colleagues come and get me whenever there is a problem. Generally all I have to do is touch the stupid machine to get it to make copies - it really drives me

I know a woman who sets off store security systems on a regular basis, and not because she's taking stuff - it's just her energy. She doesn't go into certain places anymore because of the hassles it has caused her. She also has the issues with watches and cameras...
post #22 of 24
I cause lights to go out, burglar alarms to go off, and all sorts of strange stuff. In my Somatics class, my teacher had us doing energy exercises, and I got her crystal to move a little. She wants me to continue into the second phase of the program which has a Raki course. I am not exactly sure what that is, but has something to do with balancing the energy in other people.
post #23 of 24
TNCatFancier - I sure hope it does wear off with age. I'm just thankful I can use a computer without too many hassles.

Sicycat - The Sliders show was about travelling between parallel worlds. The group originally tried to get back to the originaly world and then it developed into finding out more about an alien race that was technologically leap years ahead of know technology.

Wow, I am glad I checked this post out. I have this happen to me all the time, but never really wanted to tell anyone. I have to go check that slider site now.
