Four years ago in Toronto, Canada, when my daughter was 14, I had the oddest experience. I was watching daytime TV while my daughter was in school when all of a sudden I went into what I can only describe as a trance. I repeated aloud these words: "She's going to die. Oh no, she's going to die..." for what seemed like minutes. I then regained my normal breathing and sighed loudly to myself and said, "She's ok. She'll be ok." I snapped out of what was the strangest trance like mood and began watching TV again as if nothing happened.
I was referring to my daughter, having the distinct feeling that she was in danger of dying, but then realizing that she'd be ok.
One month later, I received a call from a relative with whom my daughter was sleeping over at the time. She told me, "Delilah stopped breathing during the night." I called a friend who drove me to the hospital where I was met by a priest. My daughter was on life support, having suffered a reaction to some medication that almost killed her. She remained on a life support machine for a day until she made a full recovery within days.
I feel that I had received a wave of the future of a life-threatening event. I always trust my gut feelings, and have not (thank God) ever experienced anything so awful since.
