Let me begin by saying this. I do no believe in Luck, the Paranormal, Magic Powers or anything else of the sorts. I am not spiritual, and view life
and the explanations we have that describe phenomena with reasonable skepticism. I'm an atheist along side my fiance of whom would agree with
everything I've previously said excluding spirituality (for her own reasons).
This topic is meant as a way to assist myself using the minds of the members of ATS in attempting to describe some very odd occurrences that have left
me pondering and questioning just how some of those things I do not believe in may actually exist naturally, but are simply labeled as something they
may not really be. That being supernatural.
Through observation of specific events all throughout my life, my fiances life, and the life of other individuals who consciously and unconsciously
have experienced these events, it is clear that "something" exists that we have yet to describe through natural means.
Before I go on explaining the events that I and others have witnessed, let me first tell you what may be the cause of such events. Or at the very
least, aiding it's existence.
Our bodies are full of electricity due to our chemical make up, our brain activity and environmental factors. Some individuals appear to have a higher
resistance to electricity, some with lower resistance. We have a clear example of environmental interaction with it's own electrical properties
through something simple such as a static shock.
What I am proposing is that some phenomena may respond to electrical signals produced from our bodies electric activities.
Not too long ago there was a topic here on ATS that described a young girl who could allegedly start fires with her mind (I believe somewhere in
Asia). A member posted a comment suggesting that the girl may have caused these fires due to her electrical energy within her body, accidentally
setting off fires due to poor living conditions where straw and other dry materials were in contact with wire and other conductible materials.
This was a very interesting suggestion as I had a discussion with a friend a few years ago of which she mentioned some individuals who unintentionally
drained battery life much faster than it's normal decay because of their electrical activity.
If this was true, then it could lead to confirming another phenomena that I personally have witnessed and potentially caused. For many years I've
simply stated it was coincidence as there really was no other explanation, nor a reason for me to believe otherwise. But, for some reason, every time
I happen to be driving at night the streetlights in the direction I drive seem to burn out (By streetlights I mean the ones that light up to road, not
traffic lights). This isn't simply one every few times I drive, but every time. The more I am thinking, the more angry I am, or the more happy I am,
the more lights seem to burn out. On average, 2-5 will burn out on any given drive no matter the distance (so long as there are streetlights). I am
usually not swayed too easily into thinking that some strange occurrence is happening. However - as I have said - this happens every single time I
drive. On a not very pleasant night when I was particularly upset I noticed that within six blocks over twelve bulbs have burnt out.
Of course, this hardly expresses any proof towards my theory and is hardly tested at all. Therefore, such events may still only be coincidence,
strange as they may be. In fact, if anyone else sees this regularly could you please comment? Perhaps the bulbs are just not very high quality?
This information, however, brings me back to one of the first discussions I had with my fiance. She has a tendency of being "followed" by what some
people would call Ghosts. Once again, with her it too is not simply a once every few years type thing, but all the time. The more she payed attention
to whatever was occurring, or tried to learn about whatever was occurring the more frequent, violent, and more noticeable such events became. From
visual and auditory footprints on papers, to large dark figures in the corner of the room, lights turning on and off by her command through
communication, and even physical manifestation through strange white mucous-like substances secreting from the walls and roof.
Another interesting fact is that although none of her other family members seem to attract these things (but have witnessed the same events because of
my fiance), her great grandmother was a known 'witch-doctor' of sorts (excuse my terminology), as she is part north american aboriginal. Not just
any witch-doctor either, but a very well known, allegedly powerful one at that.
If all these things are indeed happening around us, then it may be that some individuals are simply more capable of feeling, attracting, and
manifesting such phenomena due to chemical make-up and possibly inherited genetics.
The last thing I would like to discuss is Luck. For a very long time I have had a strong disbelief in Luck (and still do to this day). However, there
has been people and incidences within the past few years that have lead me to think that something may actually be occurring.
A friend I work with appears to have the most amazing luck in the world. More so with specific things that have to do with money. He was born into a
well-off family to start, but that isn't necessarily what I'm implying. He enjoys gambling, and If I were him I would too! For some reason - perhaps
simply coincidence - he always comes on top. Always! He regularly goes in to a casino with $20 and will come out with $120-$400 on an average night.
He always seems to win scratch card games. He is always being offered high paying jobs (despite his terrible work ethics and lack of education), but
the best thing (and worst to witness) is his higher-stakes gambling games. He will go in with $500 and come out no less than $6000-$10,000 with ease.
These aren't poker games or other mild-skill-induced games like black jack, this is strictly slots and roulette.
Never-the-less it makes me wonder. Especially since I appear to be on the exact opposite side of the spectrum. Fortunately not very severe, but
annoyingly, and frequently bad. The more I have to rely on someone else to do something for my benefit (lets say a Realtor, Employer, Mortgage Broker,
or even the person making my Subway Sandwich), the more torment I seem to go through. It is especially nasty when It is a high-stress situation where
I may be constantly thinking about what I may have to go through or do if "whatever it is" doesn't happen. This, once again is not a once in a
while occurrence, but an every day occurrence. Every day, no matter what happens, whoever I am buying food from for luck will always, unfailingly in
some way seem to mess it up. I'm not even picky, and I will always shrug it off, but it is noticeable to others who are usually with me (my gambling
friend for example, who is in disbelief on how bad my "luck" seems to be). My car, which I received from my parents, never had any issues ever, yet
the instant I got it (literally the instant) I had three flat tires, both motors to my front and back windshield wipers died and the timing belt fell
off! Then, as I bring it in to get everything fixed, the mechanic changes all the tires fixes the motors and somehow messes up on the timing belt and
brakes my entire engine rendering me in a position to have to get an entire new engine.
