Similar to laws of attraction.
A pattern of what? Being balanced perhaps

When I'm balanced the luck is on my side.

Film it.

Has to be a reason, but certainly not normal.
It has been normal my entire life. Usually it is not a big deal and people do not even notice it because streetlights where there is a lot of foot traffic seem to be denser so you still get light from the neighboring lights. When I was a kid we used to play outside all the time and sometimes you would have to change where you were playing because the light would go out.

If you look for it now you will see it everywhere except maybe highways. I never looked for it on highways before but I will start looking on highways now.

I believe they have started going to LED lights as well to save money so I need to see if this happens with them.

Guess it doesn't mean something to most of you you, but tonight, I found another dime. It isn't the dime itself that is so special. It is usually in a place I wouldn't normally be or in a direction I wouldn't be looking at. Tonight, I had to buy tub and tile cauking so I could redo my tub. I went was going to Ace Hardware. I needed to go to my bank's ATM, which is across the street. I would normally go to the bank and drive across the street to Ace. For some reason, I decided to park at Ace and walk across the street. I did that and when I crossed the street to go back to Ace, I saw it shining in the street. I shouldn't have been there. I never did this before. It was also 8:50 pm and just about dark so I didn't see much of anything.

Anyway. I am more interested in the unusual paths I take that leads to me seeing a dime, in the dark, on a busy road that I would not normally cross. That's all for now.

I thought I posted another dime finding but guess I didn't

About two weeks ago on a Sat night around 10 pm, I rode my bike. On the way back, I looked down while,riding around 15 mph and thought I saw a dime on the dark street. I backed the bike ip about 20' and sure enough, it was a dime.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Now for the new ones......


At Stop N Shop last week mid day, two dimes right next to my car as I was getting in ready to leave after grocery shopping.

My wife cleaned our bedroom and when I looked under the bed, I saw one of our daughters toys and some dust. I angrily got the broom to show her what a crappy job she did "cleaning" the room. I swept out some dust and a dime from my side of the bed and some more dust,small toys and another dime on her side of the bed.

Can't say they are really "found" when they are in our room, but again, dimes instead of any other coin. Maybe I am related to Pres. Roosevelt.

Dimes are the smallest, thinnest, lightest, US coin - easiest to drop and the hardest to find when dropped. They also end-up in places other coins won't fit. If entities REALLY have the ability to conjure up coins for you, they should leave wheat pennies, buffalo nickels, Mercury dimes, or silver quarters. Better yet, they should make sure every coin you find was struck the year you were born. Short of that, it's just a random event.

I would also like to point out that it is easier for spirits to conjure pure metals like gold and silver than it is for them to conjure alloy's. FACT

It is indeed possible. You wouldn't be the only person to have these sorts of encounters.

I have a more mundane answer. The human mind is excellent at pattern recognition... sometimes too good. It's why we can recognize hundreds of different faces in our lives and see "faces" in natural rock formations even though they are rocks, not humans. It's why we can do both Algebra and Numerology.

It's the same in everyday life... we need patterns and routines for psychological well-being but we also tend to read patterns into things that aren't patterns too.

Dimes are pretty common and often overlooked (I'd be more impressed if you kept finding silver dollars or maybe gold doubloons!), so are broken dishes and street lights turning on and off. Doesn't mean they are related or that anything supernatural is going on.
What if you had a pyrex dish, just sitting there, then just cracks? One of those nearly unbreakable glass items...?
