Here's another one of my weird experiences. This one is ancient. It happened in third grade while I was taking a spelling test. Spelling was my favorite subject, and I was concentrating really hard on the test. I always numbered the paper ahead of time, so we were on the ninth or tenth word, but I was looking at all the numbers listed down my paper.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, this voice came to me. It was inside my head, but it didn't sound like me. It said "conviction". I stopped cold and asked silently, "what?" And again it said, "conviction". And again I asked "WHAT?" because I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Or that I was even hearing anything. And for a third time it said, "Conviction. It is going to be word number twenty-nine on the test..." So I sat dumbfounded for a few minutes, a bit nervous, waiting for my teacher to give the next word on the list.
What made me nervous is this: I didn't know what 'conviction' meant. I was in third grade, and this was definitely NOT a third grade vocab word. Am I right? I had to ask my mom later when I went home what the word meant.
But anyway. Finally the teacher got ready to announce word # 29. But he stopped. He just stopped, stared at the paper, made a weird face, and actually scratched his head like you see in cartoons. And he said, "Funny, I don't remember this word being on the list, but... conviction..." This is when I stopped cold again and my eyes bugged out. I silently kept saying to myself, "oh my god oh my god..." because I was so shocked.
So I don't know. Was it a spirit or a prediction taking verbal form? And HOW can a word just APPEAR on a spelling list? What is up with that? I've been wondering all these years but still have come up with no answer.
