and to make it easier, a reply to: Night Star
I had an OOBE back in 1989 following a pretty heavy car crash. But it was an NDE as well. I must do a thread about that one day.
ETA: meant to say also, that is was beyond amazing. It changed my life. But even that is inadequate, because I was at that special place where I had a
choice to stay... or go.

, as it's on the same theme. But this will be a bit longer, so I hope you don't mind reading it all!
I would bet your ability is still there. It can lie dormant for a while if we don't invest some time and effort into it.
Let me give you an example. Back when I was really focused on earthquakes and looking at both the scientific and esoteric side of trying to predict
them, I was able to get some results at doing that. Better than chance for the predictions I posted here on ATS. But then, life got in the way, I
didn't put in the time and I did very few predictions in the past two or three years.
Then, back on 13 December last year, I went back into the "Experiment in Alternative Methods of Earthquake Prediction" thread
and posted my first and only prediction for that entire year -- and
in fact my first one since March 2015. You can read the whole post there, but basically I said I was expecting "something quite major" and it should
be "cca mag 7 Mw or bigger".
Just to explain, "mag 7 Mw" refers to the earthquake magnitude in common use for larger quakes. In spite of what the airheads in our precious MSM
might think, seismologists haven't used the "Richter scale" for them for decades. They use "moment magnitude" (abbreviated as "Mw") because it's more
Well, I posted because I felt I had to. And 4 1/2 days later, on Dec 17, 2016, there was a magnitude 7.9 Mw quake. I posted about it in that thread
and included a link to the USGS**
data page for it, plus a
link to the NEIC***
database, because that quake turned out to be the biggest quake of 2016 to that day and I wanted people to be able to check
that fact for themselves if they wished. (**
USGS=United States Geological Survey. ***
NEIC=National Earthquake Information Center.)
As it turned out, no quake surpassed that one in the following couple of weeks, so it was the biggest one for the entire year. And my only quake
prediction post in over a year was 4 1/2 days before it occurred.
The timing: my previous posts in that thread since 2008 sometimes stated that my prediction "time window" was typically three days or so, but with a
max of 7 days. I just don't "pick up" outside of that. So, while I often expected a result (or not) within three days, seven days was the max. I never
pounce on an event that happens weeks later and say, "Yeah, that was it!", because for me, it just doesn't happen
that way. A week is my limit.
The thing is, that (non-physical) "jolt" I felt that led me to make that post was right out of the blue. I'd not been studying quake maps in any great
detail. I mean, I check the USGS world quake maps every day as a matter of habit because I like to see what the quakes are doing, but this "jolt" was
so rare that I felt I had to post about it.
What are the odds? Not just of picking up on a major (mag 7-plus) quake, but the biggest of the whole year? Not real high. Random chance to hit that
within a seven-day window with just one prediction in a year is 1/52, and it's obviously lower with a shorter time frame.
So, that ability is still sitting there. And I'm sure your
ability is too, and sometimes it will just give you something without you even
looking or asking for it.
But it's helpful if you can keep notes. Even if only for yourself. Because that way, you have something to refer back to
that will help you to know if your ability is getting more active again or not.
