This took place in Michigan in 1964 when I was a teenager. We lived in the rural area of the country. We didn't have mailboxes as the postman just knew where people lived. Across the street from where we lived was nothing but a huge corn field and an old barn that was half fallen down. We had several neighbors but they were stretched out from each other. There was no street lights and few houses had porch lights on, that could be seen to far down the road. Most of us country folk used flashlights, to see with outside our homes or lanterns.
One night pop was outside and Mom and my sisters and brothers including myself heard pop say "Come on out and look at this". Mom got all of us kids and out the door we went. Up above the house was what appeared to look like a saucer with a cup up side down on it, and white and red lights on it that rotated, if the red went to the right, then the white went to the left at the same time.
We stood there watching. My little sister got frighten and went back into the house with my older siblings as they didn't care what was out there. Mom went back in and only pop and I were still watching what ever it was in the sky. I was not afraid and neither was pop.
I said to him as I looked along the darken sky "Pop that airplane is going to hit what ever that is, it's coming its way". Pop looked and then we both watch as the plane got nearer and nearer to the object in the sky, over our house. Then as the plane went where the object was the object's lights went out and the plane never did have an accident. We stood outside, pop and I for awhile to see if we seen it again and we didn't. We then went into the house.
It was like "Magic" to me what kept happening to me. I got up that next day and told Mom that her cousin she had not seen in years was coming by to pay a visit to her today, while we were in school. Mom said okay. But I could tell in her voice she didn't believe me. Us kids all walked to school. When we got home after school Mom told me her long lost cousin, did come and pay a visit with her that day, how did I know this? I told her I didn't know, it was in my mind when I woke up.
That next Sunday came and the whole bunch of relatives on my Mom's side of the family, came over with their many children for dinner. (It worked that way every sister or brother took a Sunday and had everyone over). Mom came from 12 sisters and brothers, so there were many times Mom didn't have to make dinner on sundays.
This Sunday I told Mom that when the kin folk came over, someone would get hurt and have to have stitches. Mom told me to stop that nonsense, as when I said that kind of stuff it happen. I said "But Mom", her hand went up in the air and I knew, if I said more she slap me in the face so I said nothing, more and walked away.
Sure enough a bunch of us kids were playing outside, and jumping over the fences and my little sister jumped, the same place we did and cut her foot wide open. Went to the hospital, had stitches put into her foot. My Mom said I wished it, upon her to happen and it did. So Mom punished me for my sisters cut foot. After that when I felt something or seen it I never told mom.
From the time I seen the UFO which was later explained, in the newspapers that is what it was. (The police was loaded down with calls, from people from my area I lived in. To towns far from me in Michigan that year.) Anyways it seems as if that UFO sighting brought out the psychic abilities from me, made them stronger. Although at the time I didn't know it was called that. I just called it "the unknown stuff that happens". And left it at that.
From then on I kept papers with what I knew, was going to happen on a certain day. I would write down for example like "Monday at school Joe will fall down, and hurt himself" and put down the date I wrote that down and then the date it happen. I kept that little book I wrote that in for years, until I moved from my first husband, who threw it away.
I predicted my uncle would die from something stupid, (he fell off a roof onto his head) he did die. My cousin Brian would be killed, he was. The guy down the street from my aunts house an old saw mill, that the man who owned it, would get his arm chopped off by the saw, he did. The things I thought of did happened, and they did frighten me. Why did I know these things would happen, I couldn't figure out how I knew this.
As an adult I could alter these thoughts, that something would happen. And I can sometimes change the out come like in the story "The highway drive to the store". However not always can I prevent something bad to happen. My psychic abilities for one reason or another, became stronger once I seen the UFO in the sky that night.
