Mystic experiences happen to most people at least once in a lifetime. Have you had one? Francine is convinced that during her commute to work one morning that her late mother-in-law saved her from a fatal accident. When Denise was a child, her steady playmate was a little girl she met in the graveyard across the street who died years earlier in a fire. Stephen used to have “pillow dreams” as a child, in which is floated over Belleville, New Jersey and received an accurate Google view of the area, decades before the Internet came to pass. Psychic phenomena are more common than most people imagine. Those who experience them often don’t share their stories because they’re afraid of being ridiculed or deny it themselves. This book chronicles the psychic tales of everyday people, as well as four gifted psychic professionals. Whether or not you believe in psychic phenomena, this book offers some engrossing insights into the world of clairvoyance, out-of-body experiences, and the peculiar penchant our deceased relatives and friends have for sharing our burdens and celebrations. People from all walks of life participated in this anthology, from school teachers and CEOs to grocery store clerks. When you finish reading their personal accounts, you may never view “reality” the same way again.
