Experience description:  

I was aware all day of a mindful thought that I needed to write. Many times during the day, the impressions to get a pen and paper and write came to mind. The presence of this thought was strong on my mind, but I ignored it all day choosing to realize it was a demanding thought pattern not leaving me all day. I remember thinking that my family would think I was full of myself if I tried to give them a poem or something that I had wrote after the death in the family had brought such sorrow of losing such a young loved one. Finally, after putting off this need to "write this" all day, that afternoon, before the children arrived home from school, the thought was loud in my mind "IF YOU ARE GOING TO WRITE THIS GET A PENCIL AND PAPER AND WRITE THIS NOW". I could no longer refuse to write, I turned into my child's bedroom and retrieved a notebook and pencil returning to my own bed, which I had been putting clean sheets on at the time, and I began to write with thinking.

The words flowed onto the paper, without thought, they were not my words. I wrote so fast. Yes, a beautiful sight of heaven. Which was followed with personal lines of information for others. Those, lines of personal note is what gave the evidence of this being a real event. After the poetry about heaven, one suggestion noted was to "look under the seat of the car for something for Maria". Maria, my nephews fiancÚ', had just the day before called me. So, I called her back. Told her what I had just experienced, about going to look under the seat of my nephews car.

She then told me- her Dad and brother had just cleaned everything out of Jeff's car that was removable- the day before my experience. But, she sent her Dad and brother back to where the car was being stored, and they looked under the driver's side seat. There, tucked up under the seat, a little brown paper bag. The little brown paper bag, found under the seat of the wrecked car, had a receipt for November 20, 1994. That night, 11/20/94, my nephew and his fiancÚ' had been out together doing some shopping for Christmas. They had looked at jewelry together. After taking her home that evening, Jeff had gone back and purchased a little pinky ring, Maria had tried on while they were shopping earlier that day. That pinky ring, was found, only, yes only because of the writing I almost chose not to write. There was also some personal gifts for his parents, that were found boxed up in his closet, because of the personal notes at the end of the writing of heaven impressed on my mind that day. 12/20/94 Yes, the family was hopeful, because of the ring and gifts otherwise for his mom and dad, being found only because of this writing, we do have a poem about heaven, too!
