I’ve read quite a bit on Jung’s theories, but it hasn’t helped. I have three very meaningful events in my life that have made me wonder and keep me wondering.
I will try to put them in the short form: my husband’s maternal grandfather and my maternal grandfather lived around the corner from each other in a 2 million city in Europe at the turn of the 20th century. I met my husband in the USA. We only discovered this after we were married a few years. People who hear this, say it was fate that we were meant to meet.
When i was 15, i had just returned (a week later) from a visit to my grandmother in Holland and was fast asleep and "felt" her stroking my face to awaken me, to say goodbye. I even heard her voice. I woke to see nothing but found out two days later that she had died at just about the same time i had had this experience.
2 decades ago, when we were on the waiting list to adopt, some visiting spanish friends decided for fun purely, to hold a seance with a home-made Ouija board ( sp?) because it was halloween and it fit the theme that night. i went along…when i asked the question silently, only to myself, nobody knew…The spanish friends had no idea we wanted to adopt, in fact the lady doing the seance asked, "who here wants to know when they get a baby? who is pregnant?" the answer came that whoever asked would get the baby on January 8th. The birth mother signed the release papers on that day. (Our child was born in December.)
I still get shivers when i retell this last one. I would love to know how any or all these could be explained rationally.
