That happens to my sister 🙂  She is also an “indigo child” – if you are someone who believes in things like that, it’s pretty interesting!

This happens to me!!  There was a light down the street from us that always worked, except for when I walked under it with the dog!!  Fiance doesn’t make it turn off, I’ve watched.

Yup happens to me all the time. There was a specific one by my college that would turn off whenever I was by it and then turn back on and I thought it was just broken but I’ve noticed it in other areas as well.

I read on reddit just today about someone has this same occurence.  Really odd.

One time I was sitting on a bench at night and being a total loser, and I looked at a light post and whispered “Nox,” and it WENT OUT. And then after I was done losing my shit, I whispered “Lumos” and I SHIT YOU NOT IT TURNED BACK ON. Those are the spells in Harry Potter that make lights go off/on so I felt like a motherf*cking sorcerer.

There is one at the end of our street that comes on when I get nearby and then goes off when I walk past.  I was walking with one of DH’s friends, he’s a lineman, and he said it’s just chance that it happens that way, it’s the street light trying conserve some energy before it goes out and needs to be replaced.  He gave me the number to get the city to fix the light.  That happened two years ago, I never called and the lightpost still does it 😀
