Do you ever see weird things?
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 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. :)
The fuzzy things you see, “swimming sperm”, is a normal phenomenon called “the blue field effect”. The dots are white blood cells in the capillaries in front of the retina of the eye, near the macula. They don’t absorb light so it shines right thru them. Pretty strange. The sparkles could be a few things. Severe cases are caused by retina detachment. This would be like a firestorm of sparkles. The inner eye has no nerve(s) so it needs a way to tell you something
is wrong. It uses a phosphorus jelly substance to do so. Nothing to worry about!
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?
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.
Big ones like this can cause weird stuff
Even these smaller capacitors on regular power poles can cause strange energy affects
Oh cool you’re into astral projection? I haven’t tried it in a long time, but I came realllly close to doing it a couple of times. Or at least I think so, anyway. It felt like the arms of my astral body were out of my physical body, but there was a lot of suction so it was hard to pull all the way out.
I will start with the second type of non-lights or shapes that you see, I believe those are energy patterns best discovered by first focusing *long* like into the blue of the sky, then letting the middle field come over, and you see these little energy marks darting around like so many little sperms, but they follow around shapes. I have heard about courses offered to help people discover this, but like you it just happens to me naturally.
The little stars or pin pricks of light, could be your retina detaching, or tiny ischemic attacks(strokes). The fact the your BF agrees that he saw them too could be, maybe lol, he is just being sweet, most men will agree to anything when they are in bed with you.
I see colors, my eyes can be closed or open doesnt matter, its easier to see in a darkened room as the light of these colors arenot very bright. I think I am seeing the six colors of my chakras, teal, aqua, magenta, vermilion and amber and indigo, they fold over each other and make boring patterns, this has been happening for years so its not a serious medical condition, if its that!
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.
Ace, aint that the truth!
Denys, I have read that too about the swimming transparent objects in a blue field of vision just being the cells floating in the vitreous humour, so its probably safe to assume that is what a few of us are seeing.
The sparkles can be serious, (macular degeneration and retinal detachment) Which I have been to the retinal specialist and he cleared me totally, but I see them too, a few sparklers here and there. ditto with the clear MRI,(so no strokes) so what is it that we are seeing?
I think that Laura is an excellent observer of light in nature, have you thought to use those images that come to you on the reflected surface of water drops in a painting?
Being open to seeing what others do not is a gift, as long as we ascertain that imagination doesnt distort all reason. I am still emabarassed about falling for the popcorn /cell phone hoax.
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.
Hah, I saw the weird static stuff when looking at my white wall when I woke up today.
PJ – that is an awesome idea about painting. Unfortunately, I don’t really have painting supplies since I was never very good at it. And the patterns shift kind of quickly in the water droplets, I’m not sure if I’d be able to do that.. maybe I will attempt to sketch something out (even though I suck at drawing too) next time it happens to me, that would be cool.
cashion bad spelling… The static on the walls u see comes from staring at the wall with with abslutely nothing on your mind, or in a blank state of mind. i see little colored lights when i try to sleep. normaly i would have my contacts in, but last night i didnt and i have this problem with my eyes ware all lights have a black dot in the middle of it. So when it hapend with out my contacts or glassis on i knew i wasnt going crazy and that there was acshwil light there. some times i see it more then ones. i dont think anything of it, but now that i know my eyes arent playing tricks on me i wunder what it is that i am seeing..
Oh no he definitely wasn’t lying lol I could just tell. We just both paused and this weird feeling came over me and I knew he was seeing it and feeling it too.
That’s interesting, the first bit you said. I’ve never heard anything like that..
Oh, I just remember, I see things in droplets of water too. There’s a river behind my house and sometimes I’ll just go sit in it, and water droplets will end up on my glasses. If I focus on them, I see patterns shifting and morphing in the droplets. Know anything about that?
Mike, I don’t think we’re talking about the same thing. I’ve experienced what you’re talking about upon standing up too fast or whatever, but what I’m talking about is different. It doesn’t look the same. Like, when I see “stars” when I stand up, that overtakes my whole vision pretty much but when I see “sparkles” I can see everything else around me clearly and there’s just a small “cloud” full of sparkles grouped together.
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.
