On Sunday, April 3, 2011, I was doing some seed planting, and listening to the radio when I had the overwhelming feeling of dread. I imagined myself being buried in snow. I kept thinking in my head, why would I think of something like this? It is a beautiful day, and there is no snow in sight. This would be a horrible way to die. Do I try to dig my way out, or just lie there in peace and pray, hoping God will take away my fears. I eventually shook off the feeling, but it kept popping back up in my subconscious.
On Monday, April 4, I was getting ready for bed when I saw a comment come across my boyfriends Facebook page. The comment was "our hearts are heavy with sorrow, we're so sorry". I thought, oh my God, something has happened to someone in his family. Could it be his parents? His sister? After calling my boyfriend, I found that his sister's recent husband, had died in an avalanche in Aspen, Colorado. I was floored. Living in Illinois, I know of them, but have never met his sister or her recent husband, just knew of them by name and seen photos. They are a very close knit family.
I have always felt some sort of sixth sense, but never put two and two together until after the fact. This time it was so clear. What is this? Is this precognition? How do I sense these things from so far away, and never meeting the person? I am not sure how to react, but I cannot stop thinking about this.
