Lights Are Always Flickering Around Me


This has only started to happen recently, and sometimes it just gets so annoying and distracting.

Near the end of my Freshman year at school (I'm going into my Sophomore year now), in every classroom I was in, the light above me would always flicker. There'd be no pattern to it either, at least from what I could tell, because it flickered randomly.

It would be in every single classroom I was in. It didn't matter where I sat, if there was a light above me it would flicker.

I would ask friends who had the same classroom for a different period if any of the lights would flicker, and they would say no.

I recall it flickering the most during Algebra class, and that was the class I zoned out most. At home, whenever I had a headache or zoned out, the light next to me would flicker like crazy.

One day during finals, I was in the cafeteria listening to my ipod (I was sitting alone at a table). A janitor came by and told me to move and he pointed above me and said something about the light. I looked up, and the huge light above me was seconds away from burning out. T was flickering in this maddened way that freaked me out.

After lights have burned out in my room I'd change the bulb and they would still flicker. Sometimes it just gets so annoying because all I can see in my room is the flickering of the light at this random pattern.

I've tried controlling it before, but I don't know how and focusing on it makes it stop.

It's only started happening recently too.

Hi october hope this has stopped by now if not you can email me umniyaansari3 [at] when I practice working on my skills lights start flickering I know what you're going through and it's surprisingly easy to stop them we can work on it together. Your mind is doing this it's just a state of mind you've totally got this

I have noticed this happens to me. I will walk into a room and the light either flickers or burns out completely. My mom was the first person to point it out to me. Is it a spirit or an energy following me? Is it a bad spirit? This has been going on for about a year now. No matter how many times I change the light bulbs I seem to put them out.

Finally I found the right people to talk to, I have a similar problem no matter where I go I see flickering lights. Any light source near me starts flickers near me and no one else notices often, yesterday I went to the movies and the light above me start flickering but as soon as I left it stopped. Weird things happen around me no matter what I do, yes I try to ignore it but nothing ever changes. People have seen these things happen around me they give the cold shoulder or are afraid of me. This stresses me out I'm sick of living in this uncanny vile. 😕

recently the screeen on the laptop I have been moving went out and it wouldn't cut off when I held down the power button after a couple of tries it turned out. Tonight I was sitting and at the corner of my eye the light bulb was flickering and its a brand new light bulb and my dad wired this house and he is a master electrician but back to the point it was going from bright to dark then when I look it was normal then I felt a chill run up my spine and the light bulb went out and the weird thing is the fact that I was freezing cold to burning up and I had static electricity so what could it be? Am I like you guys or just overly paranoid of ghost because the house I believe is near where Indians was because of the arrow heads we have found around here

I've had a few things happen. Similarly lights flicker. Currently I'm staying at a friends and since I've been here the power has cut off three times in the apartment. Lights always flicker around me, everywhere I go. My computer at one point dimmed the screen and similar things that you can only do by touching the screen. It hasnt done those things since.
I've also was zoning out in the bathroom and the corner of the toilet paper that I was staring at started to burn. I'm confused, what does it all mean?

This happens to me frequently, but not strongly. I know it isn't just my house, because a desk lamp in our computer room that is self-sufficient flickers when I sit under it. I'm my bedroom my lamp flickers, and it also happens in the bathroom. I'm there the most. If anyone is an Aries or Aquarius could you pm me about it?

this happens to me to but for some reason only happens in lessons that I like and I affects all the lights in the room. My teachers are really confused as it only happens when I'm in the room, it doesn't last for long but it happens like 4 or 5 times in a lesson and also my old laptops randomly shutdown for no reason, personaly I think its quite cool but can get annoying after a while.

I have the same thing and it is getting more intense everyday. My microwave started acting up, and I was standing close to it when it happened so I walked away and calmed myself... It stopped. I tested it again... Same thing... My lights are going crazy, my boss just had to replaced his computer monitor for the 2nd time, my car gave out and it was the day I was driving it to the buyer ugh...It's something everyday. And some weird reason... Time is going by very slowly tonight. Now that is a first. Off topic... I know... But I thought that was strange.

this is the first time I have considered googling the subject. I have always tried to ignore the light bulbs going out everytime I think of the same things... I have noticed a lot of people here talk about controlling it, I'm just trying to understand it. Its been happening to me since I was 13 and ever since I have experienced things that I have had to prove to myself that are real before anyone else... However I have become exceptionally good at tuning out and ignoring the subject completely for fear of being seen as crazy or the spawn of the devil. Its like a gay man marrying a women just to be "normal" isn't it.

Not to be skeptical, but flickering lights in your home can be a sign of bad wiring which can lead to a fire. If your wiring is older get it checked by an electrician.
Having said that, I witnessed something very weird regarding street lights. It was very early in the morning, still dark, and I had just backed out of my garage to go to work. I suddenly noticed someone in a white hoodie walking by in front of me. It was like he was just suddenly there and I got the creeps looking at him for some reason. I never saw his face as his head was angled down and his hood was over his head. As I watched him walk down the back lane I noticed that every time he passed under one of the streetlights it started flickering and almost went out. After he passed the lights would return to full brightness.
A friend of mine figures that since we all have a unique vibration or electrical charge some peoples' charges might be of the right frequency to interfere with incandescent lighting. This doesn't explain the bad feeling I got watching this individual but could possibly explain the phenomenon.

It is really great to see some many people posting on this topic. I am so glad to have found this site. I definitely have noticed lights turn off immediately when I pass by them (walking, biking, or by car), this happens everyday. Lights do not flicker for me, but I always hear/notice the buzzing noise lights make. My cell phone and ipod also get drained faster than they should, and I do not receive many calls even though I have coverage. My laptop used to break a lot too until I heard from a show to surround my electronics with a green light in my mind to protect them. Since I have been doing that I find myself being able to manipulate electrical things without breaking them... For instance, I can download large files quickly on a slow connection, pick up wireless almost anywhere I go, immediately change the color of street lights (rarely...and with a lot of effort), etc

Hi there,
I am glad I FINALLY stumbled on a website with something about this whole ordeal.
I too have issues with lights, however, I ALWAYS blow them out. For the first time tonight however I heard the sound of electricity rising as I got closer to the light switch. I had no idea what the noise was until I saw blue and the light burnt out. I have always thought it was strange to have this happen so often to me, seems as though no one else I know goes through as many light bulbs as me.
This guy I have been dating for a couple months recently went into a coma after a bike accident and I feel maybe I have been emitting a lot of energy because of this. I want to learn more about emitting energy, but don't know where to do so.

Also, I feel like I'm very good at judging other people's energies as well. I can feel their emotions. What is all this about?

Hi my name is Casara and I have recently just had my bathroom light flicker when only I'm in there, and now when I go to school the light's flicker in the bathroom there to and when I walk down this hallway at school I see that light flicker also and then I stay at the end of the hallway when I see that another student pass me to see if it flicker's when they go under the light and notice it doesn't only when I go under, but it's slowly starting to notice that it's following me around. It doesn't scare me one bit but I think it's kind of interesting. So if anyone want to tell me what's going on then email me at mamacasara [at] thank you

Hi October. Sounds to me like you can control the element of light. Though you have just started to scratch the surface. Try meditating and see what the lights do. I don't know much about the element of light, but you shoudl google it and learn more. Hope this helped! Good Luck! 😊

I'm not sure if this means I'm psychic but sometimes I have dreams where I see what's going to happen. I have a lot of dejia view and I frequently see lights flicker alot. Not majorly like you've seen them but as if the power was going to go out. And nobody else can see it.:/

Thank you all for responding:] I'm so happy to know there are so many others! It's been a while after I've posted, but the lights still flicker. Some incidents have actually happened- I blew out the new light bulb in my room months ago, and it was replaced, then only a month later it blew out AGAIN!

And they were perfectly fine bulbs...

something like that has been happening to me lately too... But I don't know if its just coincidence... I'm sort of new to all this... When I'm driving, the street lights flicker. Sometimes they get really bright and then go out. After I've passed them, I'll look in my rearview mirror and they eventually turn back on. Its really weird... I was in a friends car and it happened and my friend freaked out.

Thanks Naturaliana I have seemed to noticed when I'm very happy and or stressed. I have had one experience where I was stressed and sad in my room putting clothes away and when I would walk back and forth from my bed to my closet my computer speakers, space heater and light would turn off and on it freaked me out and I called up my dad I told him to stand outside my room and watch he is a skeptic and a realist and he saw it and immediatally rewired my room lol I haven't had it happen since in my room but now everytime I go for walks at night with my roomate felicia I make the lights turn completely off and on and I'm starting to be able to control it thanks for the info!

Hello October I recentally started noticing that I can make the street lamps around me turn off and on by either looking at them or walking under them but I actually can do it with people around I thought it was me just going crazy but now that I have a few skeptical witnesses I'm pretty sure I'm not lol anyone else have this with street lamps? And what is this from?

i got some experiences, I thought I might be thinking too much, only believe with some tests tried, and found the following:'s started slightly, if you're not notice of its "existent",'s become obvious and frequent's would following you's would be moved to other form, eg. Fan, TV, etc's would be something like bulk flickering, then becoming brighter.

Why these were happenning?
Try to focus and find if you having the same->

There're something, eg. Vision, sound, symbol, etc, that would appeared when these were happenning. This "things" would like your to focus on its. The light flickering just to get your attention.

My situation improved after I promised to put some times to focus on them.

hi october... I also have affects on lights blowing out and if I take pictures lights go crazy. In the pictures... At times.

But I also have pictures of me since I was a baby with lights around me. This has been happening for 46years... And no one else in my family has this... Or my friends... Until now... My granddaughter also has lights in her pictures... She has one of a halo over her head... Which I also had a pic of me with a halo... But lost it in a fire. I have about forty pics at different ages. And different cameras... Through my life with lights. One I have a aura over my whole body... And it looks like my daughter who was two at the time can see it. Sometimes you see pics of auras done at psychic fairs... But they look fake... Mine is very real. I think the lights around me and the affect I have with lights blowing out is connected and has to do with my psychic gift... And dreams... So I'm thinking that all the people above that have commented also have the gift... But have not developed it... As of yet or recongnised it... Mine is very strong... And has been for along time... If anyone would like to see the pics email me and I will share them with you. I feel this is a energy field around me and in me that affects all lights and this is why I also pick up on people so quick... ❤ ❤ 😁

I've started looking around the net to find out if I could dig up anything to what has been happening and I stumbled upon this site. I'm not quite sure why but I have recently noticed that my light bulbs have been flickering when I am stationary in a room near one... And its only the one I am near at the time that flickers. It is starting to creep me out a little, it happens regardless of the time or if I am alone or not. While I find it creepy I am also eerily interesting in finding out more about it.

Hey Newser... I have been told and it is my opinion that the "veil is thinning". What I mean is that there is a shift in consciousness going on in the world. Truth be told, our world & the spirit world overlap, but exist on different frequencies or vibrations. I think that why we are seeing more spirits/ghosts and why more people are becoming aware of their abilities.

I think many people have abilities, but experience them randomly. The others don't pay them much attention, write it off to coincidence, or say its the work of the Devil. Its all ages, races, and nationalities.

There are groups that meet in person, a lot network online.

Peace & blessings. 😊

Hi October,
This all is amazing isn't it... For all of us. I also have a story to tell and many questions maybe you could help me with. You are not alone:).
Since my early twenties I have been dumbfounded by the fact that lights turn off on the highway when I drive under them... Nobody would believe me and I thought I was the only one! I have a degree from A.S.U. And was working for a multi billion dollar company for the past six months... When the stress increased amazing things started happening. As people believed that I was the cause of their problems and started attacking me this is what happened. I blew out two phones, made computer monitors crackle and even shook the walls when I was being fired. My ex-boss was one of the most amazing people by the way and the only one that could verify what was happening to me so I thought until now October:). I also was transmitting and receiving thoughts and in a great deal of physical pain.
There seems to be common links between us all such as.
1. Electrokenisis/telekinisis
2. Energy-whether be within ourselves or around us.
3. Physical pain when accutely affected.
4. Stress seems to make it worse. Stressing the mind makes us use more of it. Drugs like alchol, caffenine and smoking all make it more pronounced.
5. Positive thinking and positive actions expecially in the service of others helps relieve the pain immensely.?
Questions we should all be asking ourselves.
1. Is the intensity or frequency of these occurances becoming more for an individual or a society.
2. What types of people. Nationality, race, sex, age!
3. Is there groups anywhere. Imagine all of us in one place.:)
4. How to control it. Probably one of the most difficult answers to find. I think that most of us do it on an unconscience level including myself but...
I have found one form of control... In times of great stress, if one forces themself to relax very quickly and focus on an object... For me a lcd computer screen it seems to collect at that point. That is all I've been able to do so far... But I'm headed into the mountains in a couple of day's to practice?
Wish me luck:)

I've learned how to control since I was a kid. Cause' one of my uncle specializes in Chinese meditation and Tai Chi. But nevermind that.
Try to detect how much spiritual energy you have: if it hurts, or you feel overwhelmed, your body is telling you that you've got tons.
Storing and Locking the energy away is not hard, but takes practice.
Try to move your energy around your body to get used to controlling it, if not just push it up and down. When you've gotten full control over it, close your eyes, and you should be able to see an abyss inside of you. That is where most of human energy is generated.
Two choices: either close it up or push your energy into the abyss and seal it.
Ps: practice opening and closing the abyss first or you'll lose your spiritual pressence.

Good to know I'm not alone lol
And, I've tried but I'm not exactly sure how I should go about controlling it so I've had no success.
