I don't think I'm a SLider (had never heard of it prior to reading this thread!) but I did once have a strange experience with a VHS device.

I was around 20 years old and was watching the film The Serpent And The Rainbow with my parents. We had been watching it for ages and I needed to go to the bathroom. I asked Dad if he would stop/pause the tape (yes TAPE, I'm that old!) while I did so. He said, "There's only about 10 minutes left - can't you just hang on?"

At that very moment, the tape/film stopped. Naturally, I assumed that Dad had done it, but he looked as surprised as Mum and I did when we all realised that the remote control was sitting in the middle of the coffee table about 3 feet away from him. He said afterwards that he'd even thought for a second, that I had done it before he saw where the remote was.

None of us had an explanation for that one and I have wondered about it ever since. Was my need to use the bathroom so great that I telepathically stopped the tape? :oops:

You could have! I have read of SLders having had just one experience, and then nothing more.

Really? Wow. I had no idea! This experience is up there with my handful of other weird experiences so I might copy it into the "Paranormal Experiences" thread and see if others have experienced similar... Interesting to know, Garnet, thanks!

My daughter had this issue as a teenager. I think she still has bouts of it occurring when life is stressful. It wouldn’t surprise me if everyone slides a bit of energy at times. I can’t say I’ve noticed from myself.

After a about a month and a half of calm, I have started affecting lightbulbs again. Sigh.

Have you tried to reduce your stress? Perhaps that would help. Meditation, music, some activity you enjoy?
The weird thing is that sometimes it is hard to know what I am feeling! I must have felt stressed and not realized it. I usually spend time every day either finding funny things to watch, or listening to relaxing music. In the new book I bought about SLders, in many cases the person causing the interference was actually in a good mood, or no particular mood. I find this interesting as I read it, because I always thought it was only caused by stress.

Great observation Garnet. This adds a new dimension to the phenomenon. I wonder if some people act as a conductor of energy and in certain locations and times you act as a channel and it gets directed at the nearest energy source.

That is something to consider. It is a factor that seems to fit.

Working almost like an energetic filter, Jet is a wonderful grounding stone that has intense purification and protection properties. Jet is known for clearing the aura of impure energies and is an important stone for the medicine bag.

Makes perfect sense, Dan.
Ooh, jet is one of my favourite "crystals" (I know it's wood really). They say if you're drawn to jet, you are an "old soul"... It means you've had many previous incarnations (not that you're really old, lol!)
