Have you or someone you know ever encountered strange or unexplainable events? Please add where and when if you have.
When I was little I'd dream about many different things. The ones I remember were where they mirrored real life events. I had a dream two days before my grandfather passed away that he was going to die and I refused to let him die alone. I talked my mom into visiting him even though she had made other plans for the labor day weekend. I'm happy in this instance that my premonition was correct because I have that peace of mind concerning my grandfather.
I also used to see people in the hallway in the house I grew up in. I asked my mom one day about "them" and she asked me to describe them thinking that they were my imaginary friends. I guess from my description she thought I'd saw a picture of my great grandparents. I had never seen pictures of them and I was about 5 years old so I couldn't see the pictures on top of the TV in the flip album. I do not know if I'd dreamed about what they looked like or actually saw something but individuals that have lived in the house since have reported strange events and rarely live in the house longer than a year at a time.
I also had dreams while I was in the military about deployments and when they would end. On most of the deployments I was selected for they had an open ended timeframe so I never knew if I'd be home in two weeks or two months. I usually had dreams about when we'd be home. I might not have a specific date but I was normally within a 2-3 day window. The last time I deployed my friend didn't even question it he just turned to me and asked when we'd be back. I told him jokingly that we'd be back within 45 days but turn right around and be back out there for another month. I ended up being close to this at being gone 42 days back for 8 and then spent another 27 days at the location.
With both of my children I had dreams about if they were a boy or a girl. When I was pregnant with my son, I dreamed two days before the Ultrasound that he was a boy. I ended up being right and had confirmation that day. With my daughter, I dreamed not about the actual Ultrasound but of the phone conversation that same day. I dreamed that I was talking on the phone with my mom and was recounting the events in the Ultrasound. It went erily similar in the actual Ultrasound where the technician said "I don't see any "boy parts" but the lack of those doesn't automatically mean you're having a girl". Later in the exam we got confirmation that we were having a girl. I called my mom and it was almost the same as my dream.
I guess strange events happen almost anytime and any place. I happen to have the premonition dreams. I also cannot go into certain parts of the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, OH due to feeling "cold spots" and like I'm being followed. I tried to explain the feeling to my husband but he was clueless. I told my mom about it once in High School and apparently she has the same feelings at times. I don't know if I'm sensitive or not but I wouldn't call it seeing ghosts but definately feeling disturbances in the area.
