I’ve talked with a few of my closest friends about this before, because I sometimes (more and more frequently, lately) see odd things that are hard to describe and I wondered if they do, too. I see them most often in my house and a couple of the people I talked to about it also saw some of the things I’ve been seeing when they were over at my place.
The most common one is like little flashes of bright white lights. Sometimes it will just be one. One random quick flash of light. Which, at first, was enough to make me think it was just my eyes playing tricks or whatever, but it happens too often now for me to shrug it off as that. Then, there are also what I refer to as "the sparkles", which is like a little group of lights that flash around for a minute. Almost like a little cloud of astral glitter or something floating around. Other times, I see a group of hmmm how to explain.. non-lights. They don’t flash like the other things, it’s more like static on a TV. I also see static-like matter when I look at the sky or a white wall sometimes. A few nights ago, I saw a flash of blue light when I was laying in bed. That was the first time I’d ever seen a colored flash of light.
Surely, it’s not my imagination or me going crazy if other people have witnessed it, too. It happens most often when I’m laying in bed. One night, my ex boyfriend and I were laying in my bed talking and we both paused for a minute because we saw the sparkles and I was like "are you seeing it too?" and he told me yep.
Anyone else ever experience this or see other weird phenomena? If you do experience anything out of the ordinary, do you have any theories on it or actually even know what it is you’re seeing? How does it make you feel when it happens to you?
hello, i also see these. mostly they are white and all move in different directions from each other, sometimes they are mostly dark ones…they always seem to move slower…
id like to say it is blood pressure like when you stand up to fast, but i do have that sometimes….but they are different and move differently.
plus im not old…so no worrys of stokes….and i dont get headaches…. and my eyes are fine….
LOL…For so long I’ve always thought no one else has seen ‘the sparklers’ so I never mentioned them to others…This ’empty space’ all around us is filled with an amazing amount of this kind of light.If you stare into the blue sky, and focus on one point,you will begin to see them easier in your perifeal vision…they move so fast that as soon as you try to focus on them they scatter in all directions.I’m guessing that they are a part of a higher dimention and will play an important part of Free Energy as we evolve and discover ways to tap into this remarkable higher vibration all around us.When I see them..I feel a deep peace.
Okay so in all reality, I’m probably going to be the craziest one in this discussion but it’s relevant. So I don’t see the sparkles but shadows. Solid black that blur slighty at the edges. I’ve seen them glint across my room in the middle of the night, in my rear view mirror while I’m driving as if they are sitting in the back seat. Sometimes they are people shaped, othertimes they have no distinct shape at all. They always seem to be following me or watching me. A lot of the time I question it but I know that it’s not in my mind. I think I’ve become sensative to this kind of crap and really it’s a pain. I’m pretty used to it but it still gets me when I start to really think about it or talk about it.
hello morgan…..i see these too, although mine are small shadows…..like a dog of something…that seems to pop round door ways and things….
i know there are there before i see them….not like im making them up, but like when you are asleep in bed and you KNOW there is a spider, and you find and dispose of said spider!
im glad this website is full of like minded people. :)
I am also so glad for the like mindedness. It keeps me sane a lot of the time, knowing I’m not the only person in the universe…
I think I know what you mean when you say you already know they are there. For me a lot of the time it’s like when someone is staring at you from across the room and you look over suddenly to see them glance away.. But you also don’t know WHY you look over and you don’t even think about it, but something makes you look and there they are staring at you. It’s pretty much the same way with the shadows I see, but they instead of glancing away, they disappear or whatever, like their own form of “oh no she caught me staring!”
I’ve heard of someone seeing animal shaped shadows before, but never got to talk about it.
Flashes and sparkles and static (floaters) are common signs of changes in the Vitreous humour in the eye. You should go see an eye doctor just in case something bad is starting to happen in your eye. I’ve seen all those things several times and it was my eyes fucking up, my eyes are healthy today though.
The blue light is somehting I’ve seen during and after meditation, according to some that’s the “third eye” waking up from its dormant state. And that’s something good.
Weird things, I see them all the time, like some people I don’t know that show up in strange places wherever I go. Feels a bit like the Truman show, but it’s all just coincidences.
my boyfriend sees them too, but we have not been together and seen them at the same time, infact i think i always see them when on my own.
anyways… came across this… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_people
“quote:Several scientific principles can be used to explain reports of shadow people, including optical illusions or hallucinations brought on by physiological/psychological circumstances, drug use or side effects of medication, and the interaction of external agents on the human body”
i like this…..all of these are recreated by tribes and religions to get closer to god. so maybe we are seeing a little of what people for ages past have seen.
I know what you mean about the “static” when you look at the sky or a blank wall. It’s almost like there’s a film over your eyes of small circles. Sounds crazy, but I always wondered if I could actually see the stuff floating on the surface of my eyes, like bacteria and dust.
As for the lights that you see at home, I completely understand. I haven’t seen anything like it in my house yet, but my family members have claimed to see lights and feel energy. I have no trouble believing them because they are generally very down to earth people who don’t really believe in anything out of the ordinary. They said that there were three balls of light in our hallway and one streak of blue light.
I believe that these things are either our eyes playing tricks on us but I also believe that they could be balls of energy because of the aura they seem to carry around. The three balls of light apparently have a happy energy and the blue light seems rushed.
As for the strange things I’ve seen…I’ve walked out into my hallway once and saw a little girl standing there, all white. But I had just come from my brightly lit bathroom and from looking in the mirror. So considering my age, it might have been my reflection still burned onto my retinas.
And I had a horrible experience when I was 14. I woke up and looked at my door and there was a hooded, stooped figure with clawed hands holding rosary beads standing in the door frame. I figured I was dreaming and put the cover over my head and went back to sleep. But when I woke up the next morning, I realized that there was absolutely no indication that I was dreaming…everything in my room looked exactly the same. I actually asked my family if they had played a joke on me. This experience still haunts me to this day and it makes me want to cry. I really, sincerely, REALLLLLLY REALLY REALLY REALLY hope this was a dream and I’ve read about images like this in dreams of our “shadow” or “dark side” coming to scare the shit out of us in our dreams. Scary, but also pitiful. God, I hope I was dreaming. I’ve got the chills now.
well, everybody seems to have your situation pinned down to scientific physical/psych things……. it is possible that you are seeing some form of energy from what people call ghosts…..i have never seen any myself, but i had a cousin that had all kinds of crazy activity in her house. on more than one occasion they caught these things in photographs, and they did sort of look like the things you describe. balls of energy and such. ghosts aside though, there are a lot of natural occurrences that take place that we still have no idea about. scientists do not have everything figured out, there is plenty seen and unseen that we have no explanation for. so if you rule out the fact that your eyes/brain are ok, maybe that should be the next train of thought. and as long as its really not causing any problems in your life, maybe you should just enjoy them. sounds cool to me…
Well hey, may as well join the crazies with my first post =)
I’ve experienced most of the things in this thread. For starters, I’d like to thank Denys for quickly explaining what the dots are, haha. Solid scientific information is good!
As for the sparkles and the static. I’ve seen quite frequently. I’ve been told that the sparkles are from tiredness and it attributes to eye strain or something. That’s totally possible.
I saw someone relate static with circles, I used to get these a lot when I was a teenager (I’m 21). I’d notice them before I went to bed (before the hypnagogic state). They were very vivid in the darkness. Usually there would be hundreds of circles, usually red, often blue and sometimes green, sometimes through my whole vision, sometimes scattered or parts of it. I figured out I could control it. I could change their colors, change their shapes, turn them into the colored clouds that I would also see pretty much all the time, but I’ve never been able to make any real imagery out of them. It got to the point where I could see them overlayed in my vision in broad light. And I can still see them whenever I want to, by choice. Is it brain patterns? Who knows. Does it work like dreaming? Quite possibly. Are dreams brain patterns? Why not? Probably just a part of our complex visualation process.
As for shadows, one time(also in my early teens) I was on my computer in the bedroom, I saw a shadow travel from the center of my window, up the wall, on the ceiling and straight into the light that was in the center of my room. I never figured that one out. Also I’ve seen my cat chase a shadow up and down the steps once in my later teens. Also not logical :) And yea, that’s just a few out of not that many.
So one thing I’ve noticed is that for as long as I can remember I see clusters of tiny little red dots that float around. I see them when my eyes are open and closed, I really only notice it when i focus on it but it seems to be more prevalent in the dark.
Hey, i found this site when I was researching what the “sprinkles ” are and made an account just for this because i too see these things and its crazy because what happend to u happend to me its wierd i wanted to talk to people about it but i though i was the only one idk contact me on my email [email protected] if anyone wants to talk about this kind of stuff
PJ, this happens to me also. It is natural as I do not do anything to initiate it and have not done a course to learn it. I thought it may be bacteria or something on the lens of my eyes. My science teacher had heard of this phenomena also but disagreed that it was bacteria as that is micro-scopic. He said there are impurities in the air that could cause it.
I tend to liken it more to energy. Some people simply see energy in different ways and everything fundamentally is made of energy.
Laura, I do have to ask more scientific questions before I start delving into spiritism and stuff like that. Do you live near high voltage power lines? Is your house old? Are there any water leaks anywhere, like the pipes in the wall or rain water from the roof? And (not to be offensive) do you take drugs?
Big ones like this can cause weird stuff
Even these smaller capacitors on regular power poles can cause strange energy affects
