Is it inherited? My maternal grandmother was apparently a tea leaf reader and I have had a palm reader throw my palm down in disgust and say "I don't know why I'm doing this...you can do it yourself!", but I haven't and really don't feel like I have that ability. I am open to ghostly phenomena and had a particularly strange occurrence after my dear friend Dave died years ago.
I had known Dave from the time I was five years old and we were very close. Like brother and sister only. We always had an uncanny ability to communicate telepathically and I've never done that with anyone since, unless you count just knowing what your husband is going to say and finishing sentences for him. Before Dave passed away at the age of 34 on February 15, 1995, we had made a bargain that whoever died first would come back and haunt the other one to let them know they were okay. The day he died, I had been working and when I came home, had a message on my machine from his girlfriend Lori asking me to call her immediately. I knew before I picked up the phone that he was gone and just that was bizarre, because really, it could have been anything right? Well, I went right over to their home and we stayed up late with a few other friends who showed up to grieve with Lori and when I got home at 2am, I took a shower. As I was getting into the shower I said, "You never saw me naked in life, don't start looking at me now!". When I came out of the shower, all the lights in the house I had turned on, were off, but everyone was still sleeping and the next day, my family all stated they had not turned the lights off, nor had they awakened through the night.
He died on Feb 15th and on the 19th, a few girls got together at our friend Kim's place (a very old century home). There was Patty, Kim, Lori, her friend Julie and I in Kim's kitchen for quite some time. Lori and her friend had to leave to go back to Lori's home to meet up with Dave's brother and we were going to be heading there later. When we left Kim's place later, I went to get into my car, which was LOCKED, and saw there was a section of newspaper, dated Valentines day, draped over the steering wheel. Nobody, not even Dan, knew I was at Kim's that night and her house was at that time on the outskirts of the city.
The everyday things that happen are mundane in comparison and I'm sure you've all had them occur with in your life as well. Thinking about somebody and they call or knowing who's calling before you pick up the phone, hearing about a new product and then reading about it the same day or running into someone who starts telling you about it the same day....it's usually something that's been around for awhile and then suddenly you're hearing about it two or three times in the same day. So weird. How about waking up because you heard your deceased father's voice calling your name as clear as he was standing in the room and you weren't even thinking about him.
All of the above make you believe worlds are colliding, different spheres exist, and we really don't completely pass on when we're gone. Imagine if we all trained ourselves to use the other 9/10ths of our brains?! It would be complete chaos!
Keep an Open Mind! If you Dare.....
