Experience description 1/19/2014:

I had dreamed of my dad that night, and in the dream, i was assisting him and there was a nurse or assistant with us.  The assistant said, in this dream "She is really a Daddy's girl."  My dad chuckled his deep chuckle and said "Yes."  Then I got up, and I fed the cats and did my other morning chores, and when I walked across the room, there was a pigeon feather on the floor...no window was open...no doorway - and I live on the 5th floor of a high rise building.  The significance of this feather is that "Pigeon" is the name my dad called me when I was a little girl!

Experience description 2003:

I had gone swimming, and I took my watch off.  When I looked for it to put it back on my wrist while we were still at the pool, I could not find it.  I know that it was put into either my pocketbook or my swimming bag.  I went to meet my niece for dinner.  I did not have the watch on; kept on looking for it in my bag.  I decided to just empty my pocketbooks when I got home, which I did.  No watch.  I kept looking at my wrist with just my silver bracelet on it, and I realized that mommy had bought that watch for me when we went shopping around Christmas time. Then I felt really awful, sick in my heart.  I know that was one of the last things mommy bought me, if in fact not the very last thing.  So I felt all sad, and I decided to go to the pool to ask if anyone had found it.  No one had.  They said to go ask at the desk.  I did.  I had even looked in the bathroom at the pool.  All this time, there was no watch on my hand.  I kept feeling sad that it was missing.  Finally, I just thought, ‘Mommy, help me find the watch’.  Then I came upstairs and when I was going to call Jen to ask her to look for the watch since I had been at her house during the day also… I saw the WATCH was back on my wrist!!!

Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased?      No

How long did the experience last?        about two hours

Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden?         end was sudden - when i saw the watch back on my wrist.

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:          I view the reality of the experience as real because I know that I did not find the watch and replace it onto my wrist.  I would have remembered finding it...and where it was found.  It was definitely not on my wrist, and then it just 'was' there.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           very very upset; anxious to find the watch; sad every time I looked at my wrist and just saw my bracelet, no watch.  Sad.  Lost.  Then just decided to ask mom to help me find it which I did in my mind...thinking it would be in one of my pocketbooks when I came back from looking around the building for it.

Was there any emotional healing in any way following the experience?           Yes

I felt that my Mom had given me the sign I was waiting for; somehow she 'felt' telepathically that I really was so sad about losing this watch that she had bought me one day when we were shopping.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      The best part of my experience is that I know my mom sees me.

The worse part of the experience was the feeling when I had looked at my wrist which no longer had my watch on it; only my silver bracelet.  My heart really sank.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         No

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Uncertain

I have never experienced anything like it and am still in awe of it and anxious to know if anything like this has ever been documented.

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.?            I still don't understand how this could happen.  It is just amazing, but it happened.

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

I had made the compact with my Dad, but never with my Mom.  I had, however told her that I knew that when she was no longer on earth she would never really leave me alone.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes

I know that the watch was not on my wrist from the time I left the pool until the time I saw it back on my wrist.  I asked the people I was with if they remembered that I could not find my watch and if they remembered seeing my wrist without the watch.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Amazed, stunned, confused.

Was the experience witnessed or experienced by others?          People witnessed the fact that I felt I had lost my watch, that the watch was not on my wrist from the time I knew I had lost it until it 'reappeared'.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes, They all were amazed.

Have you shared this experience formally or informally with any other researcher or web site?   Yes

I wrote to the woman I had sent my ADC about pictures falling to the floor the day of mom's death.

 Is there anything else you would like to add regarding your experience?       I would just really like to know where I could find a similar experience documented.
