Experience description:  

The night of the accident family were with me waiting to hear what hospital he was being taken too, it took quite a while, at exactly 10:25pm he said in my ear very clear, " I am okay mom, and your going to get through this".  At that point I knew he had crossed over.  We had no idea what injuries he had or what the seriousness of the accident was.   

The 2nd time was after I finished meditating, I heard very loud music playing and thinking how odd that the neighbors had their music so loud on a Sunday morning.. I then recognized it was one of my son's songs (he was a musician) and I listened to it all and actually sang the chorus line out loud. (that's all I knew of this new song).... He hadn't finished writing the whole song before his passing.  When it stopped I got up and noticed the windows were closed, and I looked down and saw my sister sitting on the patio and thought how odd, as she could not yet listen to his music because it hurt her so much. But she had a friend stop over and I just thought how nice that she let her friend listen to his music.  I went down to the patio and said "you were listening to Mark's music", and they looked at me like I grew 2 heads.. she said "Sue, you know I cannot listen to his music"..  I was stunned, so went inside and sat down and a knowing came over me that he sang this song to me for not only myself, but for my sister.  I looked up the lyrics, and was gob smacked... 

I lost my son in October, and 4 months later in our basement, ( I came to stay with my sister and her life partner right after my son passed) my sister's partner hung herself in our basement, on valentines day....another devastation.

well, the lyrics in the song were about "Valentine Sorrow".. I knew this was a message from him, and too think he wrote this song just before he was killed. Co-incidence?  I do not think so.  I had such a strong knowing. 

3rd was one evening my daughter and I went for a evening ride. I threw my very expensive sunglasses while sitting on top of my horse on the back of my truck and they landed on the very edge of the trunk.  I said to my daughter do not forget to remind me to get my glasses when I return because I cannot afford to buy a new pair.  I forgot.  She forgot.  I had a 25 km drive back to my sitter's house that night, and when I pulled up, I remembered my glasses.. I knew there was absolutely no way possible they could be on the back.  NONE.  IMPOSSIBLE.

the next morning I got up, got dressed left for work and got to my car, and the neighbor was outside letting her dog pee. I looked and on top of my car driver side were my sunglasses.  I was frozen. I ran into the condo, my sister came back out to see, and  My neighbor, said to me "Sue, I found your sunglasses on the edge of your trunk and knew you must of set them their and forgot this morning. 

I then said the exact words to my sister "that is impossible", and the moment I said the word "impossible", a feather dropped out of the sky (no birds, no trees, around), in the exact same spot the glasses were laying... we stood there with mouths agape... (he always sends me feathers, still does..).
