I have had many such feelings.
One day I woke up to a world in which Nelson Mandela was very much alive and walking out of the prison.
I remember vividly his execution in South Africa -- so was it simply a bad dream. I don't think so, because I have met two other people who have
very similar recollections of events and were likewise startled to see Mandela alive and well and walking into freedom.
WOW you FREAK ME OUT! ( 3rd post in this thread Pellovoisin)
I have used that EXACT Situation before, asking.. Do you Remember When Nelson Mandella Was Killed.... Answer is always YES...
I asked to see what people would remember. I even had a long discussion with my MOTHER about it YEARS AGO, saying that I KNEW he was dead!
Well Guess what...He's Still alive! Freaks Me Out! ~
What the Hell happened? Did I confuse him with someone else?
This is the only instance I can remember of this happening, except for a few things in my Childhood that I "Remember" but that still have not
happend yet... 40 + years later. I have asked the People in my memories, ( in reality ) and they dont recall the incident. I'll know it when I see
it again, and it wont be a good thing. I'll always wonder how I knew and saw that when I was like 3. It was My grandmother ( She is Still Living ),
and we were at a Hospital ( Me and My Uncle ) Looking at her on a Table with a big PLUS SIGN on her leg (Possibly a bandage or Tape from a bandage )
I was sad and So was My Uncle. She had Passed on.
Whats funny about that is:
1. She Is still living.
2. Sha has Only been in the Hospital Recently ( under last 5 years ) EVER.
3. My Uncle was with me, not my DAD.
4. ( Dad died in 1993 ) I had this experience in like 1970.
5. It WAS a Hospital, and a stainless steel "bed"
6. We were in a part that not many people get to see in the Hospital ) Not a Public Area )
7. I'VE ASKED repeatedly both my Grandmother and my Uncle if they Remember this incident. Of Course they dont.
8. If anything like that were to happen, it would ONLY be Me and My Uncle there, as thats about it on the "Family Left" since 1993.
Now to read the rest of the thread.. I HAD to jump in immediately.
Edit to add:
I remember Nelson Mandella Being ASSINATED, not executed.
Gary Coleman rings a bell, but not a loud one. I do seem to remember the Liver or Kidney Transplant thing and felt sad for him that he couldnt get
one, being famous and all.
When Nelson Mandella was Freed from Prison, I was Shocked and Stunned.
It hit me like a ton of Bricks, and I wasnt a fan of his either.
I traveled over the weekend and did a LOT of work outside in the heat with no power, so I cant really say what I'm feeling. I got home Last night,
and had weird dreams all night long ( Monday Night /Tuesday Morning)
Sunday and Saturday I was already Heat stroked, and super tired, but I do remember feeling differant. ( actually GOOD )
Possibly because I'm completing some water supply issues on a piece of land that I intend to use if the fan gets hit with "Sit- x crement"
I actually felt relieved and content and peacful, but then I had been away from power lines, TV, Inernet, Phones and The City for a couple of days.
Funny how much better I felt even with no bathroom, running water, or Air conditioner. Just felt in tune and natural all weekend. I actually ORGANIZED
stuff on Monday, that Ive been trying to do for YEARS, and it went quick and smooth in 98 degree HEAT, and with No Shade.
This morning I could not wake up. Made coffee,drank Two cups and fell back asleep sitting up in the chair. My Third cup is still sitting there now.
Probably not the same as others, but I thought I would mention it.
I do feel that something changed, and I do feel its for the better.
I'm Mr. Doom and Gloom Usually, but I feel like Positive Progress has been made on a LARGE scale. I'm the one always yelling Run To The Hills! Get
Ready! Its coming! Now I just feel peaceul..
Lets give it a few days in the City to see if that sticks around.
3 G phones and WIFI Internet at 3 GIGHZ probably is not doing me any good right now.
We will see by the end of the week how money and business flows.
Perhaps we are all SIMPLY RELIEVED that NOTHING happened on the 4th of July Holiday. ( Terrorism related )
Love ya all...
