As a teen, I was awakened at about 2:00 in the morning from a sound sleep with the knowledge that my mother's brother had just gotten into a serious auto accident and that the telephone would ring to inform my mom of that fact. I went downstairs, woke up my mom and told her the story and that the phone was going to ring. She told me to go back to bed, that I was dreaming. I no more than got the words out of my mouth that the phone rang to inform my mom her brother was in a serious auto accident and that he was in the hospital.
I wasn't really close to my uncle so I believe that, for one fleeting moment, his spirit's energy channeled in some way through me to prepare my mom for the event. He lived on several more years after. I have had other moments which took a familiar pattern.
