Here's one to think about: I've often mentioned Suzn's ability to see over the next hill - she sees auras around people and things. Well it happened again - yesterday she & i were by the lake, a car went by and she was surprised to note that it looked like Nyland, the guy who used to live at the end of the point. I heard the vehicle but didn't turn around (i know - PAY ATTENTION!)

When she said he was driving the same truck, i let it go even though i knew he got rid of that thing and promised never to buy another Dodge. But she clained it was him, he was smiling and wearing his red hat. He loved that place but i remember wondering what he'd be doing up this way since he's lived in town for 10 years. Whatever. Forgot about the incident til this morning when i started reading the Friday paper. Sure enough, there's Arnie Nyland's obituary - he died on Thursday week. Ain't that something? Sometimes life's just too quick for me to understand :) Ever have a funny experience like that?

My deceased parents visit me in dreams once in a while-usually when I am in need of a little guidance-I always wake up focussed-Carol is right--you just have to believe--

I think it's a lot like witching for water DC. Some people can do it and most can't. Some people see or sence ghosts and most can't. Some people get a notion in their head about something happening or about to happen and most don't. An old woman around here years ago was a very accurate fortune teller, just did it for fun but wouldn't like to tell people when she saw something bad coming that nothing could be done about.

When my faviort dog Murphy died in my arms to a apaleptic shock reaction to Penicillin, it tore me up pretty bad. A couple of days later thinking about how I missed Murf I saw this Big Black Neuf walk accross the side walk, it was Murf saying good by. It only lasted a second but I won't forget it or Murphy whos life was cut so short. Mark H.

The truth is often stranger than fiction--the problem is that psychics are like politicians--90% of them make the other 10% look bad. With the recent spate of 1-900 type psychics, people who actually do have visions and similar phenomena are painted with the same brush as the people whose only vision is seeing your money levitate into their pocket. I'm hardly a "true believer", but a friend of mine has pulled one too many strange tricks on me for me not to believe something out of the ordinary is going on. I lost a belt, and he told me where it was, several times he's called me up at lunch and told me what I was eating, etc. etc. Little things that leave you scratching your head. He's not the showoff type--quite the opposite. Most people look at you crosseyed when things like that happen, and he's not anxious for that kind of attention! It's just something that neither one of us can explain, and I for one am not going to try.

Many, many times!
Here's my favorite;

My Mom always had these little sayings. Her favorite one was "You're barking up the wrong tree" Well one night I awoke from a deep sleep to hear my neighbour's hound baying. She kept going around and around our cabin, then I heard her move off towards the barn. She stationed herself in one spot, and clear as day, the thought "You're barking up the wrong tree" popped into my head. The next day, I found out my Mom had a major stroke, and had passed away in the middle of the night. To top it off, a few weeks later my whole yard bloomed with Blue Forget Me Nots, my Mom's favorite flower. They had never grown there before.

As the song goes....I believe.

I know we will get ridiculed, but I could not care less...

I have had strange happenings...My Daughter sees things too...

Hard to explain to a 6 year old that not everyone sees things, and that it is probably better if you don't tell everybody...Some people OK, but not all people...
