She must have a touch alright, a good combo with her coworker, too. :-) Sounds like he may have known something about it.

Ha! I'm imagining all of us trying to purposefully do our things, in different places all over the world...Idk but I'm getting a slight giggle again.

It's a great thread! greenkarma
Thanks again to you and all who share their experiences. hf

I was thinking more about my blue arc car experience and I'm sure a few people (a mechanic and a couple mechanically-inclined types) were arguing that it wasn't possible because if there was an Arc, it would have meant there was a fire or something, I don't remember, but they didn't believe that I saw a blue light.
 Quoting: zCommonAnomaly


So many are skeptical of phenomena they haven't directly experienced themselves. I can't help but wonder if that skepticism might be a contributor to why they don't. A lot of good food for thought on this thread. :)

I was also thinking about my comment to you, and thought you could say the same to me! I hope that didn't sound like a command to 'prove it' :-) it just sounds really beautiful and laundry is one of my least favorite chores. I was thinking to tell you a successful repeat may have to do with the season, it might have to be during Spring, idk.
 Quoting: zCommonAnomaly


smile_hear I didn't take it at all as a command :). And I hope some sparks may fly for you while folding as well!
I noticed the air was really dry that day, so maybe it's also more likely to happen during the cold Winter months. iwish

That baby video was just a little adorable, yes. :-) I love her little feet goin at it and didn't miss the knee-rolls (!).

Thank you and I hope you find what you're looking for :-)
 Quoting: zCommonAnomaly


rose Glad you enjoyed it. Laughs are so contagious! hf

I notice a lot of hawks and crows show up when Im around.
 Quoting: Apollo Far-Darter


I had a really memorable experience with crows too. One day a few years ago, as I was leaving my apartment building, I had a crow dive bomb the window above the door as I walked outside. About thirty mins later I left the building a second time and the crow did the exact same thing. The second time he hit the window really hard and fell to the ground beside me. He eventually got up and perched on a nearby fence watching me. About a minute later (while still next to the crow) I got a phone call from a friend that another friend had just passed away in England. I never could really understand that.

Oh yes, dry and chilly air has a lot of static, doesn't it..I've spent most of my time in Florida. Thank you, I hope so too!

I wonder too about the numbers on the poll. I thought there would be more No's and fairly recents. I think some of the the No's aren't voting or maybe even opening the thread:-) -and like you say, skepticism and/or simple ignorance(never heard of) of the subject makes it non-existent, until it is:-)

Yes, for as long as I can remember. 79.2% (61)
No. 15.6% (12)
Yes, it's a fairly new phenomena. 5.2% (4)
Blank (View Results) (12)

Non-Blank Votes: 77



Wow, the Crow combined with the sad news, is difficult to ignore. So sorry to hear about your friend. hugs

Have you ever heard the term 'Animal Totems'? Here is some more info on that,

Very interesting read on that site, thank you!

"Crows often appear in groups, and though there seems to be no variation in their caw-ing to each other, each caw actually has a different meaning. Their complex vocabulary is one sign of their intelligence, and is also a sign of their significance as power animals. When a crow explores something new, others watch closely to see what happens and then learn from it.

... Without paying careful attention, we are unable to understand the language of crows, this signifies the fact that we can't always see beyond our own cultural limitations."

Corvids (crow family) are very intelligent, and there is a lot of great research out there about their cognitive abilities.

 Quoting: Parabola


For me, Florida's appeal is my family and the coasts. Particularly the Gulf, but I'm not a surfer :-). I'm on the west coast, in a tourist based area and we get a lot of Canadians, most of them stay for months at a time:-). I've been to Newfoundland, as a child. I was the first/only grandchild that my grandparents brought with them on one of their summer visits. They went for 3-4 weeks just about every summer that I can remember. -Until a moment ago, I've always taken that fact as a compliment, now I'm not so sure!

I think I almost accidentally wished some cold weather on some friends in a colder environment, the other day. It actually cooled off for a day and a half here, but we're expecting a front on Tuesday(!).

Oh, you're welcome, and thank you for the link. After talking about birds etc., I escaped to the beach for a bit. There were so many Pelicans. I have never seen so many together. I think they usually spread out more, in smaller groups. It was rare for me. And the water was cold! The last time and most times, its bathwater warm! I'm standing there. watching them, shuffling my feet(literally-sting-rays!), not wanting cold water and I found the most beautiful piece of Coral. I didn't even want to risk losing it, so I decided to put it on my blanket. I turn to walk back and I see a balanced rock-tower, probably 3-feet high! It was basically between the water, me, my blanket and the beach access opening. -It's not a far walk either, so I must've walked right by it, set up my stuff and didn't see it. I was mesmerized with the birds though. I did take pics of the tower, I'll upload one eventually. :-)- I wonder where they found those rocks -we don't have rocky beaches.

-So, I'm looking up Pelican Totems and listening to the Cranes, TY!

Re: Do you experience Experience Phenomena with Electronic Devices? Are you a SLIder?
Well, this is a "fairly new phenomena" bc the present daily electronic background is a new one, lol. We are surrounded by electronic gadgets from very recently, historically. But the practical research on that is not new, think about MESMER, for example.

Human body is an electromagnetic device from its own cellular structure. Cells are electromagnetic Little marvels. And think about the central nervous system and the neuron net, think about the human brain as hardware or interface of... what? We are emissors and receptors of a lot of particles and waves.

Even supposed poltergeist and ghost events are recorded presently as electromagnetical singularities.

hmmm

 Quoting: Inerrancia


True!

Very interesting,

"Mesmer was born in the village of Iznang, on the shore of Lake Constance in Swabia, Germany a son of master forester Anton Mesmer (1701—after 1747) and his wife Maria/Ursula (1701—1770), née Michel.[2] After studying at the Jesuit universities of Dillingen and Ingolstadt, he took up the study of medicine at the University of Vienna in 1759. In 1766 he published a doctoral dissertation with the Latin title De planetarum influxu in corpus humanum (On the Influence of the Planets on the Human Body), which discussed the influence of the Moon and the planets on the human body and on disease. This was not medical astrology. Building largely on Newton's theory of the tides, Mesmer expounded on certain tides in the human body that might be accounted for by the movements of the sun and moon

"In 1774, Mesmer produced an "artificial tide" in a patient, Francisca Österlin, who suffered from hysteria, by having her swallow a preparation containing iron, and then attaching magnets to various parts of her body. She reported feeling streams of a mysterious fluid running through her body and was relieved of her symptoms for several hours. Mesmer did not believe that the magnets had achieved the cure on their own. He felt that he had contributed animal magnetism, which had accumulated in his work, to her. He soon stopped using magnets as a part of his treatment.

Same year he collaborated with Maximilian Hell.

In 1775, Mesmer was invited to give his opinion before the Munich Academy of Sciences on the exorcisms carried out by Johann Joseph Gassner, a priest and healer, and also a Swabian. Mesmer said that while Gassner was sincere in his beliefs, his cures were because he possessed a high degree of animal magnetism. This confrontation between Mesmer's secular ideas and Gassner's religious beliefs marked the end of Gassner's career as well as, according to Henri Ellenberger, the emergence of dynamic psychiatry.

Well my friend, here are some other factors that can factor in. Person has had near death experience, more than just one can bring on more high strangeness.

Others, swear it is caused by Alien implants which is not hard to believe since there has been a HUGE increase over the last 22 yrs. Some state finding blood in morning around left nostril.
Whatever the hell it is, not from God!

That makes sense to me /\. It reminds me of how a person who has been struck by lightning once, is more likely to be struck again.


As far as this phenomena being Alien Tech, I don't think it would be malfunctioning, susceptible or detectable to human emotions. It seems our emotions are affecting the Field/Aether.


Not from God(!) - I thought everything was from God??




I was just reading this quote on another site,

"My body and the Universe come from the same source,

obey the same rhythms,

flash with the same storms of electromagnetic activity.


My body can't afford to argue over who made the Universe.

Every cell would disappear the second it stopped creating

itself. So it must be that the Universe is living and

breathing through me. Iam an expression of everything in

existence. At this moment, you are seamlessly flowing with

the Cosmos."

I find it weird you included sex in the OP...

IMO, sex does have something to do with it, something to do with the polarity of your body/blood...I can only go on my personal experiences but I flip the magnetic locks of doors all the time...

And like most rh neg folks I will kill a brand new watch battery in less than 1 week...blow all light bulbs if I touch them...especially the blue or purple or black lights...those I can't even take out of the package or they will be blown before they even go in the lamp...

Just an update on this week, which totally relates to this thread. I started a new job and nothing went right. Every computer, phone, etc. malfunctioned, from hardware to software...it was frustrating and uncanny in retrospect. Timely for the thread no doubt. One thing It did do, besides delay proper training on systems I need to know before taking reigns, was show me how my boss reacts to certain things and lemme say, it was ugly. I don't know what to do, I need a job so bad, but this person is so out of line abusive...

by Friday I wasn't sure if it was truly just mechanical failures or me effecting the machinery. Stuff like going to save a document and then it wouldn't let me type (on her laptop).

I could be more detailed but I realized that this person is in need of serious therapy, and all determined on how she handled a series of realities of the systems in her office, of which I was being trained on...but could not.

I was astounded on Friday when she blamed it on me (stuff that didn't work prior to me coming through the door) and also stated I was too slow and deleted my work...really rude behavior.

I am surprised the computer didn't blow...lmao but also shedding tears as i type this...well I would have had I been typing it Friday eve.

Anyhow thanks for listening...

I've had bosses that try and intimidate me with their o'thoritI. -(I'm trying to make it sound like that South Park kid:-) and I will at first, try and nip it in the bud with as much diplomacy as I can muster. In this job market though it is tough.

I'm looking for a job right now and it's very stressful. I'm not looking forward to office politics either, now that I think of it. :-)

I saw one employment ad, "Would an extra 5,000 a month help out?"

I was like, 'Yes!' - I will call them Monday morning.

Re: Do you experience Experience Phenomena with Electronic Devices? Are you a SLIder?
Alright Spazz, Are you gonna give us an update? You've been on my mind! -and I've been reliving some of my nightmare-boss stories. Most of them are pretty amusing, so it's all good!

I'm hoping that you and your boss had a heart to heart and she opened up to you about some God Awful tragedy which is going on in her private life, which was reconciled this past week-end and she had no idea of the technical difficulties impeding your training annnd she took you out for lunch or drinks :-P, to apologize.

*I should add, nightmare-bosses being the rarity as most are remembered as mentors. :-)

She had no patience for any technical difficulties, including 6 viruses on the computer I was trying to train on, one in the boot drive...there was no anti virus on the computer...NONE...

She blamed me. She was a screamer and a demeaner, belittler, name caller, saying I was too slow. No responsibility for her machines or processes in place before I walked in the door Tuesday to begin working for her and to train. The last person had quit because of her, the front desk of the lobby kinda gave me some insight about her, confirming all this.

SO, I showed up Monday at my normal time, according to the agenda she typed out and handed to me on my first day, and no one was there, the doors were locked, I texted, called, no response. Finally her partner showed up and said I wasn't supposed to be there, I showed her the agenda. I had a heart to heart with the person training me (the personal friend and assistant to the tyrant boss), I also had a heart to heart with the partner Monday morning. We decided to part ways. No way I can work for someone like that, as much as I need to work, half the pay, no benefits, no vacation, no holidays and that abuse. No. It was a first for me basically saying no thanks take this job and shove it, but politely. I told her it was too negative and I wasn't even given a chance to train before I was being blamed for everything in the world.

That is where I am at, unemployed again. And no, she wasn't having a bad day, she needs a person to abuse, a scapegoat, someone to be condescending and demeaning too. That person is not going to be me.

Re: Do you experience Experience Phenomena with Electronic Devices? Are you a SLIder?
Not only was she the above, but I did talk to her about screaming at me..she interrupted me first sentence. The brunt of what happened was on Friday and she ended up deleting my work that I was forced to do on her mac laptop, and walking away in a huff. THat was when I talked to the person training me, she agreed it was a really horrible scene. Most of the people that work for her are her friends, and I understand why. I am not in that inner circle, therefore someone she can treat like shit, or so she thought.

The agenda said I should show up at 8:30 on Monday, she denied it, I showed her document to the partner who arrived later - having to prove stuff like that and deal with that type of behavior starting a position is not going to get better. I had to walk away. Unhealthy among other things.

And no, no apologies, no story, no drinks, no meal..

I actually thought I was on candid camera, and mentioned it on Friday in jest, but was actually completely serious.

If anything I left the place better than it was when I got there, the phones got fixed and the computer was fixed so the next *victim* will at least have a leg up on things ...

Time for Plan B...it is extreme, but I don't have any other options unless I sell myself...that isn't a joke.

Thanks for listening. I left a lot out, but I think you get the gist of it. I am not going to take that shit ANYMORE...kinda done with accepting those working conditions...

Hugs.

Yeah as I mentioned before I left the other day, when you have a boss with issues like that you have to pay what they call in the staffing industry "battle pay" which is high pay. Some people will work with that situation/conditions if the pay is awesome.

This situation was, in fact, the opposite. She said she was starting me out low with a review in 3 months. I knew what was going to happen in 3 months, the list was already being made as to why I wouldn't get a raise, I could feel the notches being carved with her allegations of blame. I could not believe she accused me of breaking the phone system. It was a singular room in an executive suite building, so the phones were controlled by the executive suite company. They confirmed that they were not in working order when I met with them personally about the problems. Ugh. I am kind of worked up over this...it was a layer no doubt...

Glad you got out of those circumstances....

Hopefully that woman will begin to get the message as to why she shouldn't be treating people that way. She must really be hurting inside to be acting out like that...
