Catherine A's ADC
Because of the
elections on November 2nd, I did not check my email that day. I was looking at
email on November 3rd. On November 2, 2010 I received an automated email from
Yahoo! Messenger with a voice mail attached from my sister (her same email
account while she was alive). When I clicked on the voice mail attached and
listened to it, to my shock and amazement it was indeed from my sister. The
entire family has listened to this. It started out with music like I've never
heard before. It is only about 7 seconds long and at the last couple of seconds
my sister's voice says "Oh, Catherine". Needless to say I cannot explain this
nor can anyone in the family. This has been life changing to all of us. This
is most certainly my sister's voice as confirmed by family and friends who knew
her. Hear the .mp3 - click
Was this experience difficult to express in words? Yes
I have no explanation of how this was even possible.
Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased? Yes
Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated: Please refer to Question No. 3
Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated? Please refer to Question No. 3
If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive? The only difference in my sister's voice was, for the very first time ever, she sounded so relaxed and peaceful!
Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? No...not at all. This was all electronic in nature.
Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased? No
Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased? No
Could you sense the emotions or mood of the deceased? Yes
It was as though my sister was trying to express a message of how I wouldn't believe how happy she is!
Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know? No
How do you currently view the reality of your experience? Experience was definitely real
Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: Obviously, this is very difficult to explain, however, having received a recordable communication such as this voice mail message; even given the fact that something of this nature is capable of being done by another person, I have never heard of anyone receiving a voice message that could be so short and exact replication of my own sister's voice as I and the other family members experienced during her life. My sister did not have many friends or acquaintances who were capable of this kind of altering. The inflection in her voice and the tone in her voice was a clear message to me and the others.
Was the experience dream like in any way? No
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: I was in total shock and my entire body experienced a jolt of chills.....as well as the other members of the family who listened to the recording.
Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience? Yes
I felt a sense of relief for her and assurance that she is indeed in a better place.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? A sense of knowing my sister is experiencing peace, joy and happiness
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes This very simply served as confirmation of life after life.
Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes The experience has me convinced that there is indeed more to "life" than what and where I am today.
Death Compacts are when two or more living people promise among themselves that whoever dies first will try to contact the other(s). Have you ever made such a compact? Yes
Oh, yes! I asked my sister to let me know she was okay after she died.....and she did!
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes This voice message came as an MP3 formatted recording....Yes, I believe it is verifiable given the advancement of technology today.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? I felt assured that my sister is in joy, peace and love where she is right now.
Was the experience witnessed or experienced by others? Yes
Everyone in the family has listened to the recording and everyone was shocked and amazed, wondering how in the world this could have been done!
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? No
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes
I simply sense my sister was keeping an agreement with me and it was very comforting and reassuring.
Did you become aware of future events? No
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? No
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? No
Did you meet or see any other beings other than the deceased? No
Did you see a light? No
Did any part of your experience seem to occur in a place other than the location described above? Yes
My nephew told me that days prior to my receiving this voice message that he was having very strange problems with her computer and ultimately had to unplug it.
Have you shared this experience with others?
Yes All of the family and close friends were as amazed as I. Others simply blew it off.
Have you shared this experience formally or informally with any other researcher or web site? Yes
I have sent emails to others like John Edward, Carolyn Myss and other Ghost hunter types, but to-date have had not received any responses.
Is there anything else you would like to add regarding your experience? I would like have this recording validated or debunked. Other than that, I am convinced without a doubt it was my sister's message. I would also like to share with others, just for the experience. I believe this is a valuable occurrence in the event others have or will experience similar types of communication.
Were there any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
