Ghosts, Strange Lights, and Electrical Activity
Jamie wants to know whether strange electrical activity could be a sign of paranormal activity. She writes:
Hi Michelle! I have a spirit here in our apartment. I have heard him speak before; I have felt his presence, and even caught an EVP of him. The past couple days, I noticed something strange: the nightlight in our guest bathroom turned a VERY bright white and then burned out….and last night, the lights on our ficus tree did the same thing (the lights got so bright that it woke me up…was like a sunlight)..and then they burned out, too.
Is this a sign of paranormal activity? I never heard of anything like this, with the exception of lights flickering and going off and on..all of which we have had in the past month as well. Thanks so much.

Hi Jamie. Yes, it could be a sign of paranormal activity—or it could be an electrical wiring problem in your home. Ghosts are known to cause electrical disturbances (including flickering lights, electrical failures) and they can drain freshly charged batteries. This is because strong electromagnetic fields (EMF's) are usually found in the presence of ghostly/paranormal activity. Science has shown us that strong electromagnetic fields can cause electrical disturbances, power failures and other anomalies.
Check to see if there are natural causes that could explain the strange electrical activity in your home. Natural causes could include short circuits, electrical wiring problems, blown fuses, or man-made EMF's. If there are no natural causes, then it's possible the light activity could be paranormal.
