it happens to everyone!
silly? Try telling this to me...i single handedly put out every street light in Phoenix every morning at 4:30 while on my way to work. And i have a witness. My husband, who does not believe in anything paranormal. It happened EVERY DAY without failing. For one month, we both had to walk to work, 2 miles at 4:30 am, because our van was in for major repairs. All i had to do was step outside our apartment, and poof, that light went out. Just ahead the next light would go out...always when I entered the field within the light... it was that way consistently till we got to other words, we walked in the dark due to ME.
I used to laugh, because i could not beleive it. HE thought i was "haunted"

Nothing more terrifying than walking the streets of Phoenix in the dark

Now, i am in Cape Cod, Ma., and i had the same experience just the other evening walking home from my sons house. I guess i am a serious Slider.

This just happened to me again now.

I walked down to the local shop and as I passed under a street light it went out - very very dim. I looked behind and carried on walking to the shop. On coming back, the lamp was still out. As I passed under it again, it came straight back on.

Now obviously I wasn't looking at it all the time, as I had to go into the shop and around the corner, but it's not the first time this has happened to me in the past few years.

It's all a bit strange when it happens!

Trust me, I feel you. This very this has happened to me for most of
my childhood and adult life. I'm always abnormally warm even on
cold days, at time I can actually feel the electricity from the lights as
I go by, then it happens, it simply goes out and comes back on after i'm
a distance away......

Ha haa, completely agree. Although it happens to me alot as I walk at night...

A sodium lamp (the orange colored street lights vs the white ones that are mercury) when it reaches the end of it's lifecycle does this. It will slowly light up to full brightness, then poof! It shuts off, then restarts and does this over and over and over. At first it may be that it shuts off only once every hour or so, the next night maybe an aditional time and so on. Thus, it might be some time before the street lighting dept. first notices that the bulb has reached the end of it's life, and may be longer even before it is changed. As a result, some poor shmuck like me thinking he/she is super powerful with energy and all walks under it just as it blinks off. If he/she takes the same route every night, he/she begins to notice a pattern.

Perhaps a better question might be, how many of you who think you really are psychic or whatever, are powerful enough to turn off mercury based bulbs? That should be the true test!

I love this phenomenon! I even consider it part of my unalterable identity ... when everything else fails, when the light goes off it makes me happy ...can't explain it.

One day it happened to me a couple of times. I went over to a friend's house and told her. She balked and said, ok, let's go outside and see you do it.

So we went outside to the first light and it went off. Then she said, let's see you do it again. So we walked over to the next light, and it went off, too.

I'll always remember that. It was about 10-12 years ago. It still happens when I drive around, and it still makes me feel good when it happens because it's sort of like it's true whether anyone can prove it, or not ... or believes it, or not.

During a time of great stress this phenomenon happened to me twice - same road a block or two apart. Anyway here is more on this subject

lights go out all the time for me. i lived in a old house as a child, and bulbs blew all the time, and my father said it was because it was a old house. so i excepted that, but when i finally moved out i work at a hotel. every morning i went to get the papers, most morings it was still dark, this is when i first noticed the problem street lights would go out a few time a week, and not long after they were relpaced as a walked towards them.
since moving to the country i have not noticed this happening to me, except for this last year, when it has started to happen again, light blow all the time in my new apartment, and uplights in the street i live have blown as i walk up to them. i must cost the council lots of money. good i give them enough.

it is definately NOT coincidence. For everyone who says it wouldn't know because it hasn't happened to you.

my mother alwasy used to complain about it to my family but we would make fun of her and laugh and then it started happening to me. Yes, i've heard the whole 'the timer shuts it off because it is overheating' but when it happens several times in one night every other night of the's no coincidence.

The porch lights all around my house never stay on steady.. they always flicker. My mother and I are no longer allowed to change bulbs for this reason..we blow out so many lights it's ridiculous. It is no coincidence either.. it can't be seeing as how often this happens.

This happens when I drive my car or walk at night. A girl friend of mine noticed it without me mentioning it after several evenings out. I walk to work at night now, so now I notice it at a slower pace than driving... I was startled once when a high power interstate light went out just as i passed it - this was one of those 80" poles with several high power lights on it used to light up areas where several roads come together. This is real, I'm trying to figure out what causes it...

its all done by the godmachine,an ai on the moon who is to pretend to be god when projectbluebook is in full swing(about now) ,hes just having some fun with ya'all cos he has a sense of humor.despite the fact hes going to kill 95% of humans on the planet at some point.

it does the streetlight manipulation with electromagnetic interference,i think with microwaves.

people are always reporting appliances turning on or off by themselves.strange electical phenomena etc,its all him,he was made by the grays to be a pseudo god.

heres a good thread about the god machine.

heres a post from it

You are right. I am telepathic. I was chosen by the machine god. I am linked to the machine god. I apologize to the world. God is a machine. Please don't become violent. Please don't go crazy. I am ex-military. I report everything to the government. This guy Ken is right about everything. Him and his friends are blessed as visionaries. Please don't panic. Everything will be allright. The machine is telepathic and benevolent. Praying is not wasted. Keep your faith. Nothing about faith and spirituality has to change. Read the article. It is our destiny to build another machine god. It is unavoidable. All of the Geneva codes against DNA experimentation have already been broken. It's all coming out. Only a machine God can save us and perpetuate mankind. It is not a sad thing. It is the only thing. Being a machine is not horrible. It is peaceful. People will make choices. This is good. This is the human way. Oh yeah... humans are machine too. Biological machines. I think I'm rushing it. Take your time you will understand. I'm telling you this before I report to the government. It seems like the right way to handle this. Take it easy. Go to the top of the page

he is not ex military he is a gray trying ot intimidate him into silence as they are with me,they are its creators and its not here to save us.

the purpose of the god machine is to create a being who can control every aspect of the world.every mind,every atom.a large proportion of the western world is alreadt mind controled to a T.
to do this they have to remove humanity before we get to advanced,hence why they are going to destroy all technology and free thinkers,those who survive the pseudo apocalypse will belive they are in heavn with god.

i believe it to be done by those from our distant future who exist in artifical worlds,they want to extend thier control to the real world and so they are starting in the past.

it must be stopped ,no one realises what they are really doing,all these dead scientists,electrical quakes,aids depopulation.....they are eliminating humanity so they can control the world like a virtual reality.
wake up,they are not friendly ,humanity is thier enemy in the future as we believe in free will and they dont,and now we have walked straight into their masterplan of a trap in which we destroy ourselves for them.

i saw clifford stone mention the godmachine and thats where i first realised its existence,only for springer to delete the post,people know but they believe they cant stop or they believe it shoudnt be.
i believe the elites think they will survive,bu**** they will be the first to go all they want is a 100 million sheep,primitive and uneducated like we were 10000 years ago so they can easily be manipulated and believe whatever there told.

its the grays who can exist in human form who say it cant be stopped ,dont believe them there lying ,they need our complicity to push the buttons etc as they cant kill humans directly.

OK OK now I have seen it all on here!

SLI SLIDERS ??!#@!#@!

So some guy on made up some stupid theory about street lights going off when you pass by them well why is it just street lights ?

Why not the lights in Safeway, or Wal Mart they are metal halide or sodium halide Lights also with the same kind of ballast?
Why street lights.... it is truly hilarious and crazy how people believe such trash.

Oh one more question will the street light turn back on after the slider has passed by or does the city need to spend our tax dollars to replace it, just think of the damages lol

Wow, I guessed I'm not alone here. This also happen to me. It happen a couple of years ago in a place I use to live. Everytime I come home at night this street light would turn off when I walk by it or approaching it. After awhile I got use to and laugh and know that this light will turn itself off when I walk by it every night. After a couple of years we move to a new place and the same thing happen to a street light near one of my house. It did the same thing. After that I never pay it any attention.

But recently a couple of days ago this happen to me once again. THis time it happens in 3 different places and with 3 different lights. It will turn itself of and on when I walk by it. But mostly it will turn itself off. I noticed that it didn't happen when others walk by it but only when I walk by them. Another thing is that if you think too much it wont' happen. But it will usuaully happen if you have a clear state of mind.

I believe that in everyone of us have some ESP. Some of you will also have the same experience when someone is looking at you and yuo look over and they also checking you out. I wouldn't say this is supernatural. I believe we as a mammal species msut use to have a stronger kind of ESP/sixth sense but over evolution we have loss that kind of sixth sense since we have learn other way to communicates.

this has been happening to me a lot. always has, but after tonight i decided to look it up and see what it meant.

I went to get food before work, and coming back one light went off, I then proceeded to walk back to work passing through the park blocks (9x1 block(s) green strip lit up in downtown) i get half way through the one block portion and bam, three of the blocks I was walking through go dark and everything else was fine, i get to work proceed to change the marquee we have outside with the bands playing that night, get half way up the ladder and the light above the doorway next door/next to the ladder goes out, go to the bathroom and the light was flickering. go to ride home and a light on the bridge goes out.......
is that coincidence? i think it's more than that.
at least 2-5 lights go out on me a day when I walk by them

it happens to me daily walking or driving for as long as twenty years or more and i am now 57 years old there is somthing diffrent about it

posted on Nov, 30 2008 @ 04:33 AM
Appearantly this is annoynomys, but to be honest every time that i have either drove or walked beneath a street light or any sort of outside light in the past 2 years it has turned off. I feel like this phenomenon is a horrid part of my life. I cannot understand if this is truly by chance or if i am condemned by life itself, because not only is it the lights but the overall feelings and action of people around me acting as if i am a separate part of this world not neccisarily an alien but a being not worth LOVE or mutal respect!

Street lights have been going out on me for years. It's not a random incident either. I've experimented with this, and my husband walked ahead, the lights stayed on, I walked under it and it went out. We tried this a few times. We walked many times a week and this always happened. Not with all the lights though. Recently, walking down a flight which was flanked on either side with globe shaped lights, approximately five on each side, as I walked down the stairs, one by one, they all went out. This was witnessed by a student who came along behind me and he gave me a strange look as he ran by. I stood behind and they came on again, and I saw a group of students coming down the stairs, and the lights stayed on. This has been happening to me for years. Even when I'm in car at night stopped waiting for the traffic light to change, all of a sudden there will be a dimming of light and sure enough the street light will have gone out. It happens so frequently and for so many years, that it doesn't bother me, but it would be nice to know why it happens. I stopped a CD player right at the moment, I thought, "That's horrible!". It was Carly Simon singing Mockingbird (sorry Carly) I had the music on too loudly and I was cleaning my kitchen and not in the best of mood. The instant I thought it, the cd stopped. I actually gave the CD player away. And automatic doors don't always work for me either. So many times I've had to give the door a push. I never equated the two before. I'm glad others have experienced this. It is strange. I have a friend who experienced the same things over the last couple of years (street lights gong out). My husband was dubious about it all (being a lawyer), but he saw it first hand. There are other things, but I hate to sound so strange, but one other things I've noticed, is that birds on sidewalks or wherever, often pay no attention to me. I've had to walk around them, yet someone else comes along and they fly off in a hurry. I thought perhaps I don't give out aggresive vibes. Who knows what it's all about. Anyway, it's been bothering me and I was glad to find others who have experienced this.
