I was going through my head trying to remember all of the strange, prophetic moments that have happened to me. I don't know if I just have a knack for reading faces and vocal tones or if this is something that I just tap into subconsciously.
Last year over the summer my boyfriend got a phone call from a friend. My boyfriend doesn't have a knack for changing his tone when he's surprised or confused or happy or sad. He's very mellow. I was in the same room with him while he was on the phone. Once he got off the phone, before he could say anything I said, "either someone died or someone's pregnant." Sure enough an old college friend had been in a scooter accident in Mexico. I felt completely awful after he told me because I didn't want someone to have died. But deep down I knew he was going to say dead.
Two months ago, I'm in Pearls shopping for some art supplies. My phone rang and it was my friend Becky from when I used to work in retail. The phone literally rang once and then she hung up. I never got a chance to answer it. Just seeing her name in the caller ID I thought it was very strange of her to be calling me. We hadn't spoken in months. We were never the best of friends either. Friends but not the type that missed each other. I decided when she hung up that I wouldn't try to call back. I just immediately had a bad feeling about her calling me. Something just didn't feel right. I said to myself, "if it's so important, whatever it may be, she'll call again."
So she called again within that minute. I said, "Hey what's up?" and something along the lines of, "funny to be getting a call from you." She immediately went on to tell me that our friend David who was my good friend Diana's boyfriend had died the night before. It really just bothered me that even though I didn't know exactly the news I was about to get, that I knew something was wrong and off.
I know that my experiences aren't really prophetic or amazing. But this is the kind of thing that happens to me. Not just with death but the most random things. Most of my experiences are far and few in between.
Another thing that has been happening to me since I was little. I know most people would say body temperature just fluctuates but I've always felt there was something more going on when I get really cold, really suddenly. This kind of thing is the only thing that happens to me a lot. Not surprisingly enough, most of the time in churches, and I'll be wearing full on sweater and pants. Just as suddenly as it comes it goes. In Spanish we call it, "calo-frio," but that usually only happens when a person walks in or out from a hot place to a much cooler place, or the other way around. Calo-frio just means hot-cold. We're not so clever all the time when it comes to Spanish sayings.
