I was an ultra sensitive kid, remember those Time Life books on the unexplained that they used to advertise....man did they freak me out! I wouldn't even sleep like the person on the cover as I was afraid I'd have an out of body experience :LOL And some of you mentioned the being covered thing, I could not sleep if my foot was hanging over the bed, thought something would drag me away..I'd crawl into my parents bed and had to be in the middle under the covers! The way I would close off my mind with fear actually makes me wonder if there was I time when I saw things but I overrode it?? When I was in highschool the paranormal totally intruiged me and my best friend and I used to try to train ourselves to see auras (which we could but for me it was more a feeling or sense about the person that I got, I never was able to see colors). I do trust my intuition and try to use it in my everyday life...and I read a few other things that I do as well, asking for a white light of protection when we are on a trip and that kind of thing...I will have to try the parking technique
My DD, well she has said lots of things that totally amaze me...but it doesn't give me the chills like it once would have, it just awes me (for lack of better discription). The first ever was when she was learning to talk at, her name is Ember Trinity and at about 14 months she called herself Ember TT...TT was my nephew Tanner's nickname who died a few years before she was born...she was the next baby born in the family so I always felt like she and him had spent time together. She also put on her sunglasses upside down like he did all, which I am sure lots of kids do but still.
She frequently tells me about "when she was the mom". When I was pregnant with her I had a dream in which a little girl about 3 or 4 was there and I said "oh your finally here now" and I honestly woke with the feeling that I'd been waiting for her from a past life, actually I didn't know I was pregnant at the time but this dream was the first thing that made me think I was. We are very attached and I do feel that there is more than just these 3.5 years between us.
When I was pregnant last fall we had discussed names and she knew that Oakley was our boy name and Annisty was our girls...she started calling the baby Oakley on her own and was sure it was a boy. When I had a m/c (the day before her 3rd b-day) she told me plain as day that the next time I had a baby in my tummy it would Oakley, the same baby, the baby that we wanted. When I got pregnant again and was about 5 weeks along one day she was sittting on my lap and put her hands directly on my abdomen and exclaimed...Mommy your baby's back, Oakley's back! This was about 3 months later and we had not talked about the name or babies since.
Most recently she has told me that she remembers being born...that she was scared and was crying and shaking and was stuck. She has always panicked and freaked when I put a shirt over her head and it gets stuck or is too tight and I pushed for 4 hrs with her so I've always wondered if it is related...It was neat to find the link about that in this thread.
