I am not sure if this qualifies as a ghost story. It is really important to me and I appreciate any feedback (just to warn you it isn't spooky just curious). Back in 1997 when I was in high school, I was walking to the grocery store with my friend to buy some candy. We took the short cut which required that we walk through a field. There were a lot of clovers in the field. Neither of us had ever seen a four leaf clover before so we stopped to look for one. We eventually gave up and continued on to the store.
On our way back, we hung out in the parking lot eating candy and goofing off. By the time we got back the the field I had finished eating my candy (jelly sharks if I remember correctly). I remember thinking it was too bad that we hadn't found any four leaf clovers. After that, it was like I became an observer. I will try to explain this. I starting twirling. Like when children spin around with their arms out to their sides. I was doing this. My eyes were closed and I remember thinking something like, "Wow, I can't believe that I'm not dizzy. And that I haven't tripped yet. In fact I can barley feel my feet touching the ground..." Then I said something sort of like a prayer in my head, "God, if I am meant to be with Eric (my on again, off again boyfriend of the time. Not the guy I later married), let me stop and find a four leaf clover..."
When I did stop, before opening my eyes, I squatted down and placed my thumb and forefinger on the ground with a space in between them. When I opened my eyes, there between my fingers was a four leaf clover. The clover had an unusually long stem which brought it out of the grass from which it had sprouted and placed it in the center of a baseball sized patch of bare dirt. I was so freaked out and excited that I called my friend back to me (she had walked ahead) and showed her the clover before I plucked it. I told her what had happened and she told me that I had experienced a coincidence.
Since then, I have come to realize that it is likely that I knew that I was going to stop and find a four leaf clover, and being an adolescent girl, I subconsciously decided to ask a question to which I wanted the answer to be yes (that question about my boyfriend). We didn't end up together. I broke up with him for a different guy not long after that incident occurred.
Has anyone else had an experience like this? If you imagine that you believe me, what sorts of theories do you come up with? I don't know what to think of it. Perhaps I was possessed, or perhaps I was connecting with my surroundings.
