The flickering lights paranoia!


I have been told once that if a light flickers… it means there is a “ghost” or a “spirit” around it?

Im not sure if thats a myth or not. But lately something very strange have been happening…

It started a few months back. A spot light in my apartment started flickering annoyingly… fa i took a look at it, amused at the thought that it might be true, i yelled at it “Stop it now… im not happy!!!”

Flickering stopped immediately!!!!!!

ok so it can be a coincidence right? After all, no body knows if ghosts do exist. They might, they might not. Genn do exist of course, but our house always has quran being read in it. Fa i doubt they just decided to flicker on that light bulb.


I was with my sister at the stairs…another light started flickering, again i yell at it, my sister astonished that now im talking to lights. It flickered a little more, then stopped! it has been working perfectly every since?

now… what made me write this post is, we have a little doorway between our bedroom and our bathroom. It has two spot lights. One white, and one blue. The doorway leads to a smaller room “supposedly the babies room in the future insha2 allah”… the lights on that room has burned and since the ceiling is too high we didnt bother changing them yet. It is also the room i keep the perfumes in.

Last week, my husband noticed something. Whenever i go into that room, by habit, i open the lights, then remember they are out… but..

The flicker a bit… then go off!

It happened several times!!! My husband says “the room only flickers the lights for you… it doesnt happen to me!!!”

ok.. mako salfa…

but …

the blue spot light have not been working a long time now.

Two nights ago, i open the lights… and there it was! working fine!!! shining and casting an eerie glow over everything! it was almost 2 AM and my husband was sound asleep.

Then the next day it wasnt working again.

But then, yesterday at 1:30 am, i wash washing up in the bathroom, when surprise surprise, the bathroom light began flickering!!!

and flickering!!!!

and flickering!!!!!

Then the moment i stepped out of the bathroom to the doorway,,, guess what happened?

The blue spot light decided to work IN THAT EXACT MOMENT! of course it scared me, especially that my husband was again sleeping soundly?!

If i go tell my parents, or my husband, they will all think im crazy. im just paranoid..

and maybe i am just paranoid, even if it was, say, a ghost trying to say hello… why would it use a light and flick it on and off? If it has the ability to flick lights on and off, cant it do something more obvious to send the message across y3ni?

I think i have been seeing too much ghost whisperers lately! But i do tell you, im not liking this phenomenum at ALL!

    ama “a ghost trying to say Hello” 🙂 maybe it was a msg to remind u about the B&B posts.

    call in some electrician to check it. if it did not work call Saleh Al Nahham 😉

    It’s just Halloween season… wait til thanksgiving… perhaps the ghost will turn into a Turkey !

    Don’t mean to be cynical .. but why don’t u experiment… with your hubby kharoof… marra u turn on the light, o marra he does…

    I’m no expert ghost whisperer … but if u smell something fishy … just tape the corridor !

    Hey , perhaps we should turn bbq into a costume party… with flickering lights…

    although if the light seem to understand what you say, just ask the light “how can i help u” !

    Wala mako illa il electrician!


    I was suspecting thats u, my dear friend A :p *not the ghost, the commenter*

    Do you think i would like to tape the corridor, only to find a real life ghost peering at me? permanantely on my video tape? No thank you very much!!!
    Neither is saying how can i help you… i have nothing to offer but ayat il kersi o sorat il baqara…

    But it is getting on my nerve… and my sanity!!!

    laaaaaaaaa i think there is something was something wrong! becuz a a couple of days ago..i opened the lamp at about 2 am and it started flickering and then the next day i noticed the spot lights were also flickering and thought there was either something wrong with the weather outside or our electricity!

    LOL, It seems your voice has some kind of harmonic distortion that affects light bulbs. I think you need an electritian, not a ghost buster.

    Hmmm could it be because of the weather?! or the electricity?
    But if it was so, shouldnt the whole place lights be flickering?! why only in that certain traingle?!?!?


    EE il moshkila the last time it happened, i wasn’t talking at all!!!!!!!!

    Dear Danderma, my nick name combines every important letter in the name u all use to call me … that’s how it came to be 🙂
    maybe u don’t have much to offer ghost, but ghost has alot to offer u .. few episodes back u were looking for a private investogator… what’s more capable to send after Beauty’s bows than a flickering ghost !

    The same kind of thing happened to me. You have a loose connection somewhere. An electrician is in order unless you are handy. For me it was a loose white (ground) wire in my breaker box and over time it got hot (red hot) and charred the insulation up to 2 inches away from the loose connection! You really need to fix this ASAP else you might not be as lucky as I was.

    But, of course, it is a much better story when it is about a ghost! 8 )

    Hey i think ghosts are sexy:)


  11. i believe it, when my lights flicker i talk to the ghosts in the room, and if i ask them to stop flickering so i can work they do it.
