Real Psychic Experiences

Affecting Electricity Around Me


For those who have not read my story, Empath, let me bring you up to speed... I have noticed, only after my sixteenth birthday mind you, that I can control my empathic abilities, but there is something else now. I'm not sure what so I was hoping that some of you could give me some advice.

Ever since I turned sixteen in April, I've been having some serious issues with electricity and electronics of any sort. A good example would be the lamp on my nightstand. Whenever I lay in bed, the light starts to flicker uncontrollably. Now, I have tried several lamps, including those from other rooms in my house, and they all do this. Thinking that it was a short somewhere, I let that go.

But I've noticed it happening in other rooms too. The lights flicker and once, when I was fighting with my mother, a light bulb exploded for no adequately explained reason. Now, I'm not saying it was me, I'm just saying it was weird.

My computer always freaks whenever I'm on it, but not when someone else it using it. The phone rings sometimes when I pick it up, but there isn't anyone calling. Even my freaking microwave is tweaked whenever I use it, but it works for my other family members fine.

At my friends' houses, the same thing happens. Stuff freaks out whenever I touch it or am near it, but not when they do. So I'm curious, could I be somehow drawing this energy to me? Do I just not get along with electronics? None of this happened to me before my sixteenth birthday, so I have to wonder.

And now, I'm also seeing energy. Okay, so I don't know for sure if it is energy, but everything, living or electronic, has this strange white light surrounding it. It reminds me of an aura, but there aren't any colors to it. Just this white mist the surrounds things. I first noticed this with my cat. Then I started seeing it on my parents, my brother, and any person I passed on the street.

With some, the light is dimmer than others, but some things, and people, have so bright a white that I have to look away (I have sensitive eyes). My eyesight is perfect, I don't wear contacts or glasses of any sort. And again, none of this happened before I turned sixteen!

So, am I going crazy or is this some new talent I've found. I can still tell the emotions of the people around me, but it's quieter, like background noise instead of in my face. Any advice on this would be welcome. Thank you.

This is most certainly electrokinesis. I see the same light around people and around objects. I am best at telekinesis but I also have experienced pyrokinesis, electrokinesis, and at times, uncontrollably, telepathy. I would note that electrokinesis is often affected by emotions, as are other kinetic abilities. Empaths and telepathic-empaths sometimes have the SLI problem, which doesn't just affect street lights but household electrical items as well. By calming your mind a little more and reigning in your personal emotions and energy just a little bit, you will notice that the lights won't be affected as much. I know as an empath ignoring emotions is hard, but I suspect that other's emotions also add fuel to this kinetic energy. I think abstractly since I noticed whenever I get absorbed in something or are excited, lights flicker or "poltergeist" activity happens. I don't know a lot about this but that's what I have experienced personally. Lots of love. <3

Wow. I have always had this weird occurrence with energy and energy-related things as well and finally started to do some research to see if I could control it, and my first search brought me here. I'm so glad to finally be able to put a name to my experiences and to see that I am not a freak and that others experience this phenomenon as well. I have always called it my electromagnetic field, it seems to act up when I have extreme emotional highs and lows- very excited, very upset, extrememly angry, in love. I blow light bulbs, even had a couple physically burst. I have had the thing with street lights happen several times, when I walk past a row of them they go out as I pass. Also I have never been able to wear watches, they always go dead or will not keep the right time. Same with clocks and computers, they frequently malfunction. Cell phones are the worst, I always ruin the batteries or cause them to freeze up or stop working completely until my mood levels out. Car headlights and taillights go out and I cannot prove it was me but I have had 2 different cars have the entire electrical system malfunction and don't even get me started on how many times I have had to replace car fuses and sensors, I think that is more than a coincidence. I just have horrible luck with any electronic. I did not originally connect this with the empath thing as some have stated in other comments but now reading this thread that makes a lot of sense to me because I have always been very sensitive to other people's moods as well. All of this is good information and I appreciate it so much, except for Timfaraos' post saying this is demonic. That is ridiculous as I am certainly a believer and follower of God.

This is destructive energy, not from God! Maybe you people have opened a door to demons, who are playing with you! An open door to demons is: if you are living in sin, or playing with occult stuff, like channeling/comunicating with spirits, tarot, ouija, foretune telling, witchcraft, spells, mind control, meditation etc. Stop these things, and open a door to Jesus and His angels, you'll find peace! Visit the website: 'real life angel and demon encounters'. Timfaraos [at]

You are most likely an Electrokinetic. Try to practice Electrokinesis, you will get stronger, and you will be able to control electricity around you, and electrical stuff won't go fuzzy when you approach it, unless you do it on purpose! And yes, one of the side effects of Electrokinesis is that you will soon start sensing or seeing energy, which can make energy easier for you to control. People in their teenage years, and mostly girls, have a lot of energy within them, making it easier for them to perform Kinetic activities by accident, especially if for some reason they are all stressed out or angry most of the time. Just remember to take advantage of that gift! Good luck!

Hi Everybody, I just wanted o report that the influence on the street lighting became a personal experience. I am an engineer with a well educated mind, so I watched this phenomenon for more than 3 years. My conclusion is: when I drive or walk near the street lamps, the lamps go off and then on again, and that is valid for a whole row of them (maybe 5 to 7 lamps one after the other). I really don't know why is this happening, but I seems to have some connection with my feelings (especially when I'm a bit angry). That's all for now from my side... Maybe we could find some reasonable explanation somehow... Greetings from Romania to Everybody!

Hi! I am also an Empath. I have just discovered what I thought, my whole life, was "normal" is NOT. I always blamed people for not being more sensitive to my feelings and that of others. It turns out that most people do not hasve a clue what others are feeling. I just assumed that because I do, they do. Thought it was normal. I teach high school and have always amazed my kids when they are sad/angry/withdrawn and supressing their feelings. I call them into the hall and tell them I know what they are feeling and I love them and hope it gets better. They usually start crying and ask hug me. I never tell them I am an empath. They just think I am a very special person who udnerstands them. On the bad side of this, I also tune into all their teemaged mood swings and rollercoaster of emothions times 156 (number of students I have) with as many as 34 in one class at a time coming at me. I have to really be careful or I will ruin myself and lose myself in the emotions that are always coming my way when I am with them. OK, on the flip side, I have always had the electromagnetyic issue too but had no idea what caused it. I drain batteries like drinking water! I got my first wristwatch at age 11. Back then, they came from jewelry stores and were guaranteed. It went dead within 5 months. We replaced the battery-dead again... This happened so much that I did not wear a watch from about age 16 until my early 20s. I just thought I had rotten luck. Now it is necessary for me to wear a watch and they go dead every 3-6 months and I just replace them. Now, cell phones are another issue. I can't keep one at all! The batteries are ruined and have to be replaced within 3 weeks to 4 months. I have had so many cell phones in the past 4 years its rediculous. People laugh at it and think I just have bad luck! I try not to get angry around elecronic equipment that I have to control- like a co0py machine and computer. If I am agitated at all, the machine will malfunction, adding to the agitation and it just keeps on in a cycle until I take a deep breath and move on. I am sooooooooooooooo glad to know I am not alone. I always assumed it was just me and had a hell of a time researching the draining battery stuff and electronic stufgf on the internet. Thanks all.

SO MUCH FASCINATING THINGS TO LEARN! Right now, I'm following the guide to Electrokinesis I don't know why, but why isn't Electricity added to one of the four elements?

I have a bit of this myself, but I seem to emit electrical charges out of me, usually only affecting myself, and those around me when I am near them. And sometimes my computers. I read something about all of this once.

And something called Electric People.

Hope this helpes - good luck!

Yaaa this is what I'm talking about! I am in my early 20s and have been able to, when I drive by, turn off and on street lights (not on purpose tho...) as well as when I'm in a bad mood things happen... Like my car broke down (once, maybe 2) when I was upset and then when I am happy everything works like normal. And I set off sensers in stores now when I walk by... What do I do with all of this?

Hi there,
I signed up just to comment on this article... LOLOOLOL...
Are you by any chance RH negative? (If you are not, I'll bet one of your parents or grandparents had rh negative blood) MOST rh negative people affect energy. I do. When you walk under a street light, does it go out? LOL... I can shut down a city block if I'm upset.:)
The fact that this started when you were 16 tells me that a lot of what's happening to you is hormone related. When our hormones start getting active, the electrical anomalies get more frequent.
If you are rh negative, consider joining us at
Take good care,

This stuff is pretty funny. I am glad to contribute here even if it is more than a year since the last entry. One thing I'd like to know is how you function in school or work? I'm doing pretty good for myself. I call it luck. It all started for me in my early twenties. As I was driving down the road the lights would turn off overhead. Very unnerving for anyone with me:). Lately it has beginning to get what I call worse. I have a degree in construction management from A.S.U. I was working for a multi-billion dollar company. High stress let me tell you:). During times of great preasure applied by people towards me I started getting angry. To make the story short I blew out two phones made computer screens crackle and I even shook the walls when I was fired:)...My boss was a wonderful and amazing women I might add. Probably the only one that could verify what I did and who, until finding this article new this exsisted. I'm glad I'm not alone out there... I might be able to help anyone reading this. Here is what I know...
To increase occurances... And I don't know why anyone would want to considering the implications, but those that have this "condition", here is what not to do.
1. Drink alchohol or smoke. Drugs streses the mind.
2. Don't stress your mind out... You wind up using more of it. Either this is happening because were becoming more awake or it is some kind of electrical interference or both.

To get better, be and think positive. The more good you do for others the better you will feel. Try and surround yourself with only positive people... Or at least people trying to do good?:)

I hope this helps someone. I know reading this article definitely helped me...thanks:)

i blow several lightbulbs a month, from various locations throughout the house. I do the same thing walking under street lamps, sometimes 2-3 in a row. It's bizarre, to say the least, but you are certainly not alone!

hi Steven yeah my computer used to be switched of and for 2 days it was it was turning itself on without being switched on. It would do these patterns on the screen colourful they were.

It's things which catch my eye I start to stare at then they do something strange look at the light and it flickers. You get that feeling inside of you. I look at a spoon in the bowl and it moves then I look away look at it gain and it moves again. It drives me mad. I think it could be a spirit/ghost doing it. Even the doors move when walking past. When I listen to my music it always turns down and I don't even touch the volume. Maybe the ghost/spirit thinks it too loud or something. You might think this is mad but when I used to go bathroom it used to rain there and every time I used to walk in my room or mums I feel a rain drop and see it on me. No joke. Every time we use our phone cameras the pictures always always go blurry its strange. If its somewhere else there ok. When I get a picture taken from a camera I always always have red eyes. How freaky is that!

sounds like uncontrollable kinetics. I'd help if I could but I specialize with controlling the wind. Read more about kinetic abilities so you can learn to control it if you want I'll find what I can on it but ill leave it to you and the people reading this

Try moving the energie you see around things. Not just moving it, controling the movement. See what happens. I don't know, it doesn't happen to me, it's just a theorie, but try it out. Mabey you can try manipulating the energie in a way other people can see it too. But as I said before, I'm not sure what the results (if any) will be.

P.S. TkCurious, manipulating electricity is called electrokinesis, not cyberkinesis.

P.P.S. Before whene I said it didn't happen to me was not totally true. I can change traffic lighst and generate small amounts of electricity in my right hand.

omg its well good that this happens to other ppl, I found that mine happens when I think back into past or when I'm planning ahead in my mind, lights always seem to flicker but when I'm just watching tv there fine specially if I'm reading article online and I'm engrossed in the article they will flicker like mad, really wierd. But if I notice and still try to think in past nothing happens its when I'm completely focus on the issue. Another thing that's happened to me a couple of times, is when I leave my tv on standby overnight (I know I shouldnt) and the next morning when I just starting to wake up I think shall I get up and turn it on or go back to sleep and if I think about this a lot my tv just turns on, And I think this is just something that happens to pc's but when I put it in hybernation everytime I wake up my computer is always on asking me to enter my password. But I think that is what they do.

hi my light flickers uncontrollable that is a good word to describe it. Yeah I experienced that happening in my bedroom mines a touchable lamp you just touch it and it comes on. Mine started just do it once or twice every 2-3 days and I never thought of nothing about it. Then last week on Monday it started to flicker uncontrollable for a few seconds I don't know why this is? I know what you mean cause it has happened to me.

i know this is an old post, but I've been having similar experiences all of my life-- and the fact that you prefaced this story with the word EMPATH really resounds with me. I think empaths like us automatically have this weird electronic connection to other things. I notice that when my moods are upbeat (i.e. Happy, excited), electricity goes crazy around me. It also goes true for nerves. However, if I'm depressed or just "calm", everything is fine. And if I'm truly angry (which rarely happens), things start going awry around me immediately. At first I just thought I was crazy as well-- I still sorta do. But it's good to know that there are other people who experience the same thing so that I know that it very well could be a very real possibility and not just my imagination.

I've left a comment on Judi's post and I think I will leave a similar one here. I'm twelve but paranormal is definetly my forte. You're probably just experiencing kinetic energy. But you may also be developing Cyberkinesis. To get a better desciption see Judi's story. I explained it there

hahahaha no no your not going crazy. It's just funny to hear everyone talking about their "electrical" problems all of a sudden, it's like more and more people each day haha. No no, your just fine it happens to me all the time, hell my family has gotten used to it, I usually always flicker the lights out, on occasion though I can make them go back on. I do it with radios too, when I touch them they go off, when I back off far enough they go on. O and glad your seeing energy, it will help you much. First you need to figure out the meanings, work with energy, it might take some time, but see what you can do with it. Of course patience is very much needed, you'll find out in a year or two, even months how greatly you have come and even laugh at yourself. Train yourself, mentally and physically... Meditation is very good, also try other western uses... Such as acupunture and such. You should look into people more, be aware of your surrondings more often. We are energy beings of course, and we have a magentic field around us each different, that's why you can do things like you do. Well best of luck.

Maybe you might notice that you can also change people's moods... But let's not go that far for now...
