New here, and don't know if this is the place to post this, so here it goes.
About ten years ago, I started noticing something really strange. Every time I looked at t clock, it would show 11:11. At first I didn't think
anything of it, because I was young, and welcomed strange things. After a while, I became a party game to all of my friends (No, I am NOT gay!). I
mean, whenever I went to a party, I could tell people right when it was 11:11. It did not matter if I was drunk or not at that point in time, or what
was happening, I would just blurt out "Hey, its time!", and sure enough, it would be 11:11.
After about a year of this, I started getting more "scientific" about my strange ability. At this point, my whole family knew about this (I was
about 20 at the time), and since I lived at home, it helped to have them around me. We are all Christians, and believe strongly in God. So they
helped me keep a log of when I would notice the clock. If I was at work, would actually call home to my mom, dad or brother or just leave a message
on the answering machine telling them that it was 11:11. When I would call them, they would look at the clock near them and confirm it, but the clock
at work may have been off by a minute. I began to think that my body had conditioned itself to do this, like the way you can train a rat to run a
maze, or make a dog drool at a specific sound. It seemed that I would tell it was 11:11, day or night and confirm it on any clock I was around, and
when I would "remote" the message to someone over the phone, most times the time was correct on their end, not mine.
Then it got real wierd. I started actually waking up at 11:11. Didn't matter if it was morning or night (yes, sometimes I would sleep late in the
mornings, I was young, and would stay up late partying or playing with friends). I started to get real scared, and would actually go wake my parents
up when I would wake up. They wanted me to see a professional, but I was to proud to do something like that. A few nights, I had my brother stay up
after I would go to sleep and watch when it got close to the time. It really freaked him out to see me in a dead slumber, then suddenly wake up right
Well, this went on for another year, and finally I stopped doing it. Think I was around 22 at the time. When I finally got married to my wife at age
27, who knew me back when I would do my party trick, it was great. We bought a house together, and have now started a family. After the first year
we were married, we were going home on the ferry one night, and was up top on the passenger deck. I was looking through the boards of flyers they
have, you know, the ones that show you all of the local tourist spots, and there was a flyer with a BIG fat red 11:11 on the front! I pulled it out
and started to look inside, and it was some organization in Port Townsend that had a support group for people who see the 11:11. I was close to
calling them up and going to see them, but was afraid of getting abducted by some "Cult" group. I showed it to my wife, who instantally remembered
that I once had the dread 11:11 following me a long time ago. We laughed at it, and since I was not seeing it at the time, I threw the flyer away and
stopped thinking about it.
The thing is, last night I woke up and looked at the clock, and sure enough, 11:11. Then this morning I looked at the clock at 11:11. Now I am
afraid that it is back. I went online this afternoon, and found this website, so I thought I would post this and see if anyone else has had this
happen to them. I am going to talk to my pastor this weekend about it, if it persist.
Anyway, thanks for the help, if you have any suggestions, it would be appreciated!
