Shabse W's ADCs
ranged from dreams to numerical messages in Biblical passages to items on the
radio. The numerical signs are the most interesting. In Hebrew, Sholom's name
has the numerical value of 449. That numerical value shows up in Biblical
passages (in the original Hebrew) that spell out the story of his life. The
numerical value of "the frog" in Hebrew is also 449. I picked up a frog as I
gardened on the morning Sholom would have been coming home from school for
Passover. The experiences are so numerous that I wrote a book about them. It
is called, "Zayis Raanan: The Book of the Fresh Olive." The experiences have
continued since the book was published six months ago.

Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated: Right before we went into the funeral service, I sensed Sholom standing next to me. I heard him tell me, "Tatti (Dad), it's all right."
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? Hard to describe

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: You can't argue with the number values or the passages in which they are found. The numerical values of the Hebrew letters are as ancient as the letters themselves. The Hebrew Bible has had the same wording for all time.
In the case of the frog
- it was in my hand
Was the experience dream like in any way? Yes
The one experience was with a dream. Almost all the other messages occurred while I was wide awake.
Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience: When the first messages occurred, I was frightened - I thought maybe SHolom was trying to tell me something that I didn't understand. As time went on, I realized that the messages spelled out both his life story and his ultimate destiny.

first will try to contact the other(s). Have you ever made such a compact?
