The day before my only sibling died back in August, the bulb in the attached garage (which my family usually use as an back exit), died.

Also, my brother's 13yo lab mix who had severe hip/leg problems, who lived there in the garage, jumped over a 3 ft barricade against the door to get out, that day. Something he's tried for years to do, but never could because of his old age, and leg problems. I was visiting when it happened, and heard the dog crying and ran downstairs to see what was the matter and glimpsed hisbody making it over the barricade and then when he landed, he looked 'lost' them put his tail, body down knowing I would probably scold him for jumping over.

I thought little of it, as I was just visiting my sick bro and didnt know what goes on these days; assumed his dog was getting better (while he, worse).

Later that day, the light bulb went out over the garage. Also, the light bulb in my old bedroom which my stubbornly hoarding parents now use for part of their megastorage campaign (a current problem that needs to be addresses eventually).

My bro passed the following night. I remember the EMTs were performing CPR on him for over 15-20mins(!) with his body in the middle of the living room, centered directly under the beautiful chandelier i gifted my parents for the dining room but they prefered installing it in the LR.

When they pronounced him dead, mom was histerical, bawling and screaming and I had to hold her back from throwing herself on top of his body while the EMTs were still around about to pack up their equipment.

Family members came over that night while bro's body awaited the medical examiner who took hours to get there. It was probably 4am when the examiner finally did. Hours later while we were cleaning the living room, to place folding chairs for the wake crowd, noticed the front porch lights and the stairwell exit bulbs went out and had to be replaced.

In total its just 5 bulbs that had to be replaced between the day before and the day after my brother passed. I find it evemore interesting the locations of where the bulbs went out. Day before my bro died, the garage light at back/exit of house as well as my former room's light next to it, went out. As well as dog summoning superpowers. Day after bro died, the porch and stairway entrance at front/entrance of house went out.

During the wake, we took my 3yo nephew down to see the dog. My nephew said to his grandma "I'm scared - look the man" and pointed to left of the couch where dog sleeps most of the day. He then said my bro's name. Everyone looked at each other in amazement for just a momen then we went on our way as normal. That still sorta haunts me, but a positive haunt I guess.

What I dont understand is, why the lights?

On a good night I'll toss three bulbs, just for being alive, well grounded, and only slightly annoyed at the technofascist storm that descends.

It will be a whole lot worse when cops bust your door because you insist on using Edison bulbs.

I suspect that the pre-nup specifies that I cease and desist from political activism in thought, word, or deed.
And that...is a real problem.

It's not like I'm not aware of who's running this circus, you know?
(I am quite prepared for that little 'sit down', Mister)

Already I can hear the bickering, over bulbs.

"Honey, did you swap out the light bulbs, again?"

"That's right dear. Those things interfere with my hearing. And I have sensitive ears. That's how we met, remember?

Only this time, I had the Florenza do it. Oh, she's also running my blog, and I had Tom legally transfer all my screen identities, so don't tell me that I violated our sacred oath. I had nothing to do, with anything.... Besides, Florenza finds my thoughts to be interesting. Her last employer made her cry when she discovered that she was used in a comedy sketch, you remember, by the lady who thought it was a good idea to make a joke out of the common man, the one who thought that it was a freakin riot that just plain old anyone with an internet connection actually had anything interesting to say...?"

Sorry about your brother. There's a lot more to it than mere lightbulbs flickering out.

i'm sorry to hear about your loss. i also have a lab that's near the same age with the same hip/leg/knee issues. and trust me when i say the poor guy has issues enough going up and down flights of stairs and only does it out of necessity. your pup must have really seen something serious that would have made him move like that. i think it's fairly common knowledge that dogs and animals in general are way more receptive and perceptive than us. so they would definitely be able to see and experience things that may not be apparent to us. question is, what did your furry guy see? if it were just a human spirit i'm thinking that it's appearance would not have frightened him THAT much. what im wondering is, if there was a more negative entity residing in your house those last days. something with enough of an energetic presence as to overload your bulbs wherever it manifested. considering the fact that these bulbs were bursting BOTH before AND after the passing....

was there anything out of the norm or inconsistent with your siblings passing that would leave you to believe it was unnatural? may i ask if he passed because of a heart attack or stroke? the reason i ask is because those two methods of dying seem to be the most common ways that negative/demonic entities try to take out the living, especially the old, weak, already vulnerable. perhaps he was being oppressed/attacked. those are my initial thoughts and impressions from your story.

We live in an electrical universe, and our bodies emit electrical energy. Scientists know that much, but they still don't fully understand electricity.

Maybe our 'spirit' is an electric force, and as your brother's left his body it interfered with other electrical energy.
Light bulb elements are pretty delicate.

Maybe he was even saying good-bye; who knows?

I am sorry you lost your brother, and are hurting. In time, your memories will lose that acute sense of pain they hold now. It does get easier.

I totally agree, the best way I can put it is, after all life signs seem to be gone, the body is still acting like a dying battery, still producing the energy required for life but not enough for the body to be animated in any way. This is why around the time of death anomalies seem to appear, the astral body still is connected to the basic proton gradient in the body that gives the energy for living, but the range of actions is limited. Finally when the shock of being in a new environment sinks in the urge to make oneself noticeable diminishes. I think the proton gradient is the basic energy that allows the mind to interact with our bodies. Some religions require the body to be left in peace for a while for things to settle down. Its all about energy.

Indeed, it must have been an ausipicious incident that prompted bro's lab mix with those leg/hip issues to leap for the first time right over that 3ft room divider in the doorway to the attached garage, exactly the day before my bro passes.

my bro had just been released from the VA hospital who was pumping him up with huge doses of oxycodone and hydromorphone for pain relief since he had undergone chemo for Ewings sarcoma of the bones and had lost his left leg bones and was still apparently in dire pain. Then, they pulled the drugs, and discharged him from the hospital, refused any meds suddenly. My dad drove him around long island and nj looking for a pain specialist that would write a script. When all refused, and i had learned about all this, i insisted on rehab but they refused because he had been to rehab multiple times between VA hospital, and each time would somehow get out after a week of the morphoid they provide for rehab; indeed he had gotten used to that charade of going to rehab and insisting to be put on morphoids lest he die; all the while being such a threat to my mom in her care the last few months and never ended up in a real rehab program that just would cut you off cold turkey.

i remember one of my last conversations with hi was during his birthday in late april when when he made a birthday wish over the cake with so many family, i urged him his wish should include some will power for a change. he laughed it off and said in front of multiple family members in the spotlight, that will power just isn't something he has. hello, i just said: then damn wish for some for a change! i believe when one is weakens, drugged, hopeless to the point one's life depends on vices, the sould is very vulnerable to negative takeover.

4 mos later, he died after my mom spending practically night and day in the hospital with him his last 2 year. he was a us air force vet having served in iraq, afghanistan, and veteran cancer is associated with D/U exposure, and the opiate addiction associated with intentional VA hospital procedure to get vets hooked then release them back into society knowing the withdrawal from that huge quantity of opiates the body/brain because used to, would kill them, getting rid of any problems with intel as well as ongoing financial support reintegrating into civil society.

i am convinced that surrending the soul to a war machine and being used to kill as many civilians then self-destruct is the military life US has in store for millions of soldiers to come, not just my sibling.

It could be negative energy triumphing that blew the lights out, something way beyond that, or maybe positive energy. I really don't know what to think except hope that no more souls join the darkness; its an awful waste and insult to all the beautiful environs that humanity has been blessed with here on mother earth.

wow, that is very intense. to be completely honest with you, i have some things in common with your brother. i was not in any kind of military service but, a number of years ago i had opiate dependence issues resulting from an injury, was in and out of pain rehabilitation myself and it was made worse by a collapsing long term relationship. the woman who i thought was my literal soul-mate. everything seemed to culminate at the same time, i lost a 6 year relationship with my ex, many friends, an apartment, was in a really low place, tapering to stop, very alone, vulnerable and in a very rough spot after moving from boston to new york for a fresh start by myself. depressed about my finances, my lack of a career, my isolation severe, it was then that i believe i came under some type of demonic oppression. not possession mind you because i hadn't completely lost control of myself. but, it was apparent that something was trying to attach itself to me. something was stalking me, in my waking life, in my dreams and was trying itself damnedest to try and have me lose my life through my own doing or put myself in a position where i would be in severe bodily danger. resulting in death or being hospitalized in a psych facility. i wasn't in the position to give up however and after a lengthy battle with this thing I wound up in the hospital for 3 days until i was released back home without any kind of psychological diagnosis or anything.

so trust me when i say i completely understand what your saying. drugs, especially opiates i was later told by multiple people, leave you open to negative attack. indeed makes you attractive to such entities looking to pray on the weak and vulnerable. they seek to destroy families, destroy innocence, destroy faith, replace love with hate and anger etc. and these entities stalk their victims. slowly dragging them down further and further till the will to fight is lost and gone. indeed till you are yourself asking for death.

thankfully, i never lost my will to fight, and i believe keeping love in my heart saved me from an untimely demise. i think its also possible i had deceased family watching my back. though i did wind up having what would be classified as a near death experience, which in turn opened me up in a psychic manner. from perhaps being so close to the other side. i'm still looking for answers but, i believe the experience itself provided answers to many other questions. and for me it sure did answer the question of whether or not ghosts, spirits and demons exist. i was evaluated by multiple psych doctors, had every sort of test run on me and not one doctor could provide an explanation. now, thankfully, i'm in a much better place, have an amazing job in my field, in a stable relationship etc but, the experience has forever changed me, leaving my third eye open.

so it's from my own knowledge and experience that i can say i believe your brother most likely had something following him for some time. waiting for the opportune time to try to bring him down. and it's completely possible that there may have been spiritual warfare taking place in your house. good vs evil fighting for your brother. perhaps this clash of energies could be responsible for the bulbs bursting before and after his passing. needless to say, something did take place in your house. animals sometimes being some of the best indicators of spirit activity in addition to all the stuff going on with the bulbs. a good medium at your home should be able to sort out what happened should you need the closure...

Well, be glad it's just "dying" bulbs.

When a friend died unexpectedly years ago, all his friends and family (and I) experienced a series of exploding light bulbs... around 50-60 in all.

After a week or so, it stopped. They were the old fashioned light bulbs... I'd be wary of the fluorescent mercury bulbs of today!

A skeptic of unseen things would say coincidence... but nah, I've never had 5 light bulbs explode in different lamps within a week... or ever before or since, actually.

I have no idea how or why electrical things seem easier to influence by the recently dead (or if the recently dead are actually doing it, I just suspect it's so). Weird stuff.

Whoa, exploding light bulbs!?! Well at least finally someone else has had similar issues with light bulbs around someone dying. In retrospect, it haunts me a bit how some lights went out the day before his passing, and others, the day after. Like clockwork! I am hoping to hear more ATSer experiences akin to the signs before (and after) someone died.

My cousin recently shared with me, her experience the night that my bro died. Hours before she even was informed of his death, she had a nervous breakdown in the bathroom and passed out. Her mom called 911 and they broke down the door to get to her. Its a keyed bath, mom was too much in panic to find the keys I guess.

so glad to here someone beat the negative energy. i remember when my bro declared that he 'has no will power' at his birthday party in april (just months before he expired), that was a slap in the face that his soul was apparently gone/taken over. i had specifically suggested that hopefully he wished for more will power.

anyways, around the same time and still, my father has dealing with the violent diabetic coma many mornings still. i suspect between alcoholism, heart condition, diabetes, and diet full of meats and white rice/flour, aspartame, that has likewise maybe weakened his sould. the thing is, he is very religious, into mantras etc, was raised presbyterian but got into sanatan dharmism and even when we have heart to heart talk, he acts so kind warm and loving. not much i can do, ie i keep insisting they get the 24/7 dosing glucometer but hes so stubborn and would likely continue to drink daily if he finally gets the meter and that might mess it up from working properly.. sheesh theres always something.... i think about how my mom raised her other son so attentively for so many years (30) then he just go and throw it all a way, what a waste of food, money, care on part of my parents, ughh! i do blame the military for the radiation exposure and obviously for the intentional, widespread opiate pumping.... is it a why to keep military secrets from being shared by veterans after they come back from america's bloody brutal war on the world? so seems so:

Well, the exploding bulbs were somewhat spectacular but I've had periods of intense "paranormal" happenings... with mostly boring, mundane, easily explainable things in between... heh.

Sorry about all the problems and death in your life... but you're not alone there, unfortunately. And opiates... well, they're the opiate of the masses...heh, but if the military really wanted people dead, then they would be. The military is pretty darned good at killing, after all.

My friend who popped the bulbs died from an opiate overdose, btw... and he was apparently p-o'd about it.

The idea that we go on living in a nearby dimension, that this life is a "childhood" and death is being born into the next existence, appeals to me and seems correct (to some extent) from what I've learned.

And as far as the other poster going on about spiritual warfare... The whole good and evil thing is relative and there are bad apples everywhere. Not to say there aren't some nasty things out there, but ascribing a whole set of beliefs on one weird, nasty bodiless being is unnecessary. But there might be teams, who knows for sure.

So it helps to believe folks go on, and with enough odd happenings it becomes a "knowing." The crappy stuff that happens here does seem to make us kinder and stronger... so maybe there is some purpose to it? Helps to think so, anyhow. Either way, the bodiless guys have trouble making things happen here... it must be tough to effect physical objects or everyone would experience ghosts moving things all the time.

I remember a guy who showed me my first "weird" thing... an accountant who could affect clouds with his mind. He made five heavy thunderheads develop holes in them in under five minutes... but the effort drained him for a day... it was wild, but makes me think the dead (who are probably more "alive" than us) have similar problems tipping us off that they're okay.

Anyway, sorry to ramble on... too much coffee I guess.

Sorry about the loss.


When my long term boyfriend's father died we had something similar happen. When he passed my boyfriends phone died suddenly (full battery-we were expecting him to pass and he was going to let everyone know but the phone died). Also for about a month afterwards the light in our basement living room would go out for short periods of time and then come back on. It has never done that before or since. It scared me so bad the first time it did it. I was getting pictures ready to print for the memorial service and all the sudden the light went out. I ran out of there as fast as I could. My theory, like others here, is that it is the energy from his father. Strange but true.
