Experience description:  

I already had a 'strange' experience some 25 years ago. Under my room there was the kitchen.

We were sleeping and around two in the morning, my wife was waking up and noticed that there was no electricity anymore.

The luminous display of her clock radio is off...

So I get up and go towards the electricity meter, which is at the end of the kitchen high up.

It's an old model, with a big lever that must be lowered in order to cut the power; this lever is rather hard to lower, as it is kept vertically to ensure electrical contact.

Entering the kitchen, I sense a smell of gas, the gas tap had been staying open for at least 4 hours, and the gas would have continued escaping, if my wife had not been waking me up for this power cut.

Quickly I stop the gas entry, ventilate the place, and head for the electricity meter....

I notice that the lever is down, while nobody else, except my wife and I have an access to this place, and the more, you have to climb on a chair to get it lowered,...and there was no chair in the place.

I never understood what happened....

Much later I lost my sister, and a friend of mine lost his sister one year later. He was desperate.

I did explain to him that he should be aware that death is not an end, and that apparently, there is something after.

I had been reading many books about the afterlife, and I believe in it rather strongly.

He was much more 'down to earth'....

Anyhow, the day of burial, a few hours later, this friend went home with his wife and his children.

He called me the following day to explain that, strangely, all lamps of his house dimmed very slowly, then restarted to light up as slowly, as if a dimmer was installed someplace, he felt a terrible appeasement, he sensed this like a message of his sister telling him 'everything is okay, don't worry'...

Next, I'm coming to my last small experience. My neighbor of the opposite side was walking his dog every day, and this seemed to be a privileged moment for both of us..

One day, this neighbor died... his wife not being very fit, I suggested to walk the dog as did her husband...

At the time, the Municipality had just been installing a speed meter to measure the speed of the cars; this device, depending if you drive too fast, or not, shows a message of danger or of thanking.

I walked the dog, there was no car, no bicycle, no moped or motorbike, everything was calm.

At the moment when passing in front of this sign, I got as a message and in green, a big THANK YOU (this sign doesn't activate for pedestrians, I checked it afterwards); I passed back and forth several times, and this never reproduced....
