Personal Experience: I'm Starting To See Light Flashes

I'm a bit hesitant about posting this, as I know how strange/crazy it sounds, but then again this blog is all about strange things, so here goes....

I have recently started seeing twinkling pinpoints of light every now and then, usually in my peripherals. These lights don't move -I can turn my head and look directly at them if I'm quick enough- and they manifest and disappear much like a firefly lighting up. So far they've been mostly blue-white, but I've also seen green and yellow-orange. They appear just as bright during the day as they do at night, and I've only seen one at a time so far, at least an hour between sightings.

I am 99.9% sure this is NOT a medical condition. (My eyes are perfect and I have a much-healthier-than-most diet. I am aware that potassium deficiencies, etc can lead to seeing light flashes, but am confident this is not at all the case. There is no medical evidence to explain what I'm experiencing right now.)

If you've been following me in my paranormal (and psychic?) experiences, you will know I am very sensitive to energies and feelings, I just "know things" a lot of the time, and have had incredible successes in my investigations (with solid evidence)..

Over the past month I have been immersing myself in meditation and spiritual healing (alone) to help ease the pressures of life/career changes, and a few days ago I started seeing these sparkles of light around me. The first couple of days I assumed it was because I hadn't been sleeping well, but in the days to follow it continued, having fully rested.. I've seen one as close as 2 feet from my head, and so far the furthest was about 8-10 feet away in a corner. I have seen them both by myself, as well as in the presence of my boyfriend. He hasn't seen them, but completely believes me (fortunately). I don't feel fear or that something is wrong when I see these lights, it's more like, "WHOA! Did you see it?!", accompanied with a finger point. Excitement. Curiosity.

I've done a lot of reading online but can't find a decent explanation for what this is, other than it's something some clairvoyants can see...? Some say it's spirit guides. Or angels, but I'm not so sure I can believe that. I'm a very logical/scientific person, and not at all religious.

And so, I now turn to you, my readers:
Have you experienced this, or know of anyone who has? What do you think it is?

What Is Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, and Clairsentience?

Clairvoyance is the ability of "clear sight", in which a person sees images, colors, symbols, etc. This skill is experienced differently by different people.

Some people see the auras of others, or colors relating to emotions, etc. Some see symbols, which can mean different things to different clairvoyants. Some see images like a photo, a brief flash, or a rapid series. The more important things will stand out, whether they seem 'bolder' or are accompanied by a strong feeling.

Clairaudience is the ability in which a person hears voices. This can be a little confusing, as we often associate sound with the ears, whereas clairaudience happens as sounds within the brain. It is said communication comes through as energy vibrations that the human ears don't pick up, similar to the effect of a dog whistle.

It's said that those developing the skill of clairaudience will often feel tingling in an ear or on the side of the face. Sometimes they will hear tones, static, or something similar to a faint radio signal, or someone talking through a tin can. As the skill is developed further, these static noises will drop, and sounds will become clearer.

Clairsentience is the ability to feel and interpret the feelings of others, and people who can do this are called empaths. It is thought that many healers have this skill, as it helps them sense emotional and spiritual issues.

Very sensitive empaths sometimes tend to take on the symptoms and emotions of others. Being around negative people and large crowds can be incredibly taxing on them, and it's important that they take a moment to realize the true nature of what they're feeling in order to keep this in control.

What Is My Purpose Here?

Here's something I don't think I've explained much here:

What is my purpose here? Why did I start this blog?

This isn't an easy one for me to answer. There are a lot of reasons behind the creation of this blog.. and here are a few:

#1) To educate.

I am appalled by what the mainstream media has done for paranormal investigators. Because this field is considered a pseudo-science, there is no official training. Anyone with a camera can go out and collect evidence.. not that that's a bad thing (that's pretty much what I do), but most people do so with severely flawed thinking. Their investigative techniques are all wrong, and are anything but scientific (too many so-called 'investigators' love to make assumptions), and we have television to blame. It seems nowadays that just about any group of idiots can get a tv show, become professional idiots, and give false hope and tons of misinformation to the masses. People eat that shit up too, because apparently, if it's on tv, it's got to be real...

Watching media-appointed 'gurus' use unreliable methods and spread lies and elevate clients' fears (and they're too dumb to realize what they're really doing!) pisses me off beyond belief! [related reading: Guide To Choosing A Good Paranormal Investigative Team]

When I watch a lot of these ghost hunting shows, I can't help but pick apart all the flaws in their methods, as well as their disrespect for the locations, and this goes on throughout the entire show! I literally sit there yelling at the screen, hoping these idiots will do something right for once.

When most other people watch these shows, they tend to look up to these investigators, and believe everything they say, as well as the often unreliable 'evidence' they come up with! The bar for 'professionals' is set incredibly low, and this inspires people to go out and get it all wrong, too.

I feel it's necessary I work to change this by providing the information no one else does, as well as lead by example- scientific theory, methods of testing and debunking, and just plain common sense. I am aware that in doing so, I will probably offend many people who are guilty of these bad things (truth hurts!), but I don't like lies, and can't stand seeing so many people's problems made worse with all this false information. I'm not writing this to make friends- I'm doing it because the world needs it. Someone needs to stand up and tell the truth already!

#2) To ease fears.

Did you know I've spent a great deal of my life thus far absolutely terrified of what I did not understand? It wasn't until recent years I got up the nerve to start facing those fears and learning the truth. That was a huge step for me.

Because of this, I know what it's like to live in fear, and how debilitating that is. I wouldn't wish that on anyone! Knowledge is power, and when people understand that they often are not in any danger at all, they become a little more open to learning more about what's really going on!

#3) For personal growth.

It's not just about the public though- there's so much I want to learn about the unexplainable, as well as my place in all of this. Not only am I facing the things I spent a lot of my life afraid of, I am also growing to understand my abilities as a 'sensitive'. (My first real evidence of this is shown in my investigation of Jackson Sanatorium, although I have always known I was 'different' somehow.)

While I do not use my 'gut feelings' as actual evidence, they can still be considered personal experiences, and used as further details to back my solid findings. I am questioning what I am capable of, as well as my limits. While I have displayed many signs of 'medium-ship' and clairaudience, I'm unsure where that begins and ends for me. I feel I can further study this 'sensitivity' through paranormal investigation, and monitor how often evidence matches up with my personal experiences.

#4) For promotion and project funding.

How is anyone going to find me if I don't have a website? In order to find new places and help others, I have to put myself, and my knowledge, out there. I also chose to monetize this website (displaying advertisements) as a way to fund my project. Equipment (and gasoline!) can get a little expensive. I don't charge for investigations, so I have to pay for that stuff somehow! To justify it, I try to provide the most in-depth information I can, and it has worked out great thus far.

I am both proud of and surprised by how far I've come in the past couple of years, and look forward to learning and experiencing so much more! There is a lot out there that we do not understand, and I hope to both learn and educate others as I go along, as well as meet other people on similar journeys.
