“Enough of that ESP nonsense” I was told “Get down on your knees and pray.”
In 1976 at the encouragement of Friends and family and the advice of our family physician, I quit drinking. Within a few days I began to notice a new clarity in my perception of the world in which I now lived. It was pretty much the same world of course, same job, same kids, same home…
But this world looked, sounded and felt different.
One day I was serving a customer; I had written up an order, totaled the items, labor and tax (no, we had no computer) and asked the customer her name and wrote it down, then without a thought, wrote in her address and asked for her phone number.
No reply; I looked up. Your phone number?
Not until I saw the puzzled look on her face did I realize that I had done something very odd.
“How do you know my address?” she asked. I had only a few seconds to create a lie but that was a skill from my drinking days that was about to save us both some embarrassment. “ We live a few blocks from each other” I said. “I used to own the lot your house was built on and the lot just north of you. I drove by one day to see if it was occupied.”
The lie seemed to have a calming effect on my customer. The experience did not calm me at all, That was the beginning of many such events, It is always a surprise because the information I get during such events seems to pull up from what Freud called the sub-conscious and Karl Jung seemed to think was a larger bit of memory than would be stored in one’s brain.
My opinion though unsupported is that I am a telepath and so are you.
