Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real: there is no other way to explain how I could have seen all of this prior to that 7 am phone call. as soon as I heard Tim's voice, I handed the phone to mike, he screamed, NO, and I knew exactly why.

I had something like this happen after my brother was killed in a car accident in 1971. I remember the exact same traveling and the exact same slam back into bed feeling.

Did the experience give you any spiritual understandings such as life, death, afterlife, God, etc.? Yes I am not sure, being RC, I call God our Lord. I just know we do not use all of our brain, as humans, if we were ever able to use 100% of our brains, I cant imagine what we are able to do. This I think is part of the energy we are made up of. Its confusing as RC to think of it a soul. I tell my 3 teens, who are now doubting their RC schooling and religion, ..."as you go through your life, you will experience things, if you pay attention, you will understand life, death, maybe afterlife, better." I tell them to pay attention, they too will see, someday unexplained happenings."

After the phone call I was totally confused, I was not sad, knowing she was ok, someplace else, but immediate knew the pain it was going to cause her family. I seemed to be calm though it all. The funeral and all seemed to land in my lap.
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes
I believe now the dead can talk to us if we pay attention. we have no control over it though. I feel lucky to have seen 2 of these.
Did you become aware of future events? Yes just the next day, the call would confirm my experience. She was telling me about taking care of her brother.
