OK, I have had other experiences during my life, but I will recount the latest one, which had a big affect on me.
This is totally true, and I have mutliple witnesses. As you will be able to tell, this is not something that I would ever lie about.
My father died last month on Feb. 15th, 2012. I'm from the Midwest, and I'm an only child. I handled all of the arrangements by phone, and then flew
back East for the funeral and to tie up all of the loose ends. This all took some time to arrange, so his service wasn't until the 20th.
On the day of his service, I had of course shown up ( with my daughter ) earlier than all of the other attendees.
After the "official" beginning of the public viewing, my dad's cousin and his wife arrived. My father had been very close to them. He had been like
brothers with his cousin all of his life. They were born 2 months apart.
My cousin's wife came in, totally crying and shaking, which isn't unusual at a funeral, obviously, but she looked for me, and dashed up to me and
grabbed me, saying my name. I held her, and she was visibly shaking and falling apart, and she said, "We were on our way over here, and my phone
beeped telling me I have a new voice mail. I listened to it, and it was him!" She was beside herself, this had really shaken her up. I talked to her,
calmed her down, and went through the rest of the viewing and service. During that time, I pulled her aside and said that I wanted to privately speak
to her after the service.
After the service, we went to the side of the room, and I asked her to please play the VM for me.
And sure enough, it was my father, saying who he was, and said, " I just called to say hi, and I'll see you soon. I'll talk to you later."
I had let some other close family members come over and listen in on this on the speaker phone.
The computer voice timestamp said that the message was sent on January 27th.
That's just 7 days shy of a whole month for a voice mail to be out there hanging in the cybersphere, undelivered.
I've had voice mails lag by a few hours, or even a day. That's not unusual. But nearly a month, and then by all odds, is delivered while the recipient
is on the way to the funeral of the sender?
I will say that I'm a science person, and yet I do have spiritual beliefs that fall into the "metaphysical" category, although I do not subscribe to
any organized, religious dogma. This event blew me away. It was so profound to hear my father saying those words at that time.
Is it possible that this was just a technological glitch that played out at a very coincidental moment? Of course. My dedication to truth and
objectivity demands that I accept that premise as a possibility. I wish I could quanitfy the mathematical odds of that happening, just for my
Is it possible that some how, some way, my father wanted to send a message to us, and wanted us to hear his voice one more time? I have to be honest,
and say resoundingly, "YES". I "know" intuitively, through to the core of my being, that that message was somehow manipulated by him, and was meant
for us at that moment.
He wanted us to hear his voice one more time, and I know it.
Feelings are not proof, of course. There will never be any scientific "proof" that this event was anything other than a freakish glitch. It is
possible that this is the type of event that can feed into "Magikal Thinking". The event only appears profound because of it's timing. In the day to
day course of the planet and the Universe, this event was witnessed by, and affected, a very small number of people. In that light, it was an
But for me personally, as a human being, who lives and feels and experiences, this moment was awe-inspiring. At that moment, that "technical glitch"
was a hand from another dimension, reaching out to me and my loved ones, with the purpose of sending us a very clear, and positive message.
