Yeah, see, I hesitated to even ask the question, because I don't want to think that my blood relatives are crazy (I mean any more than normal ). One of them could have been "chemically enhanced", but not the other. I don't know if there is a god or an afterlife or not, so I would not presume to judge whether they are hearing these things or not, just curious what your thoughts are.

Oh yes, there are more specific stories: certain characters from family members' past lives, warnings, messages, apologies. My grandmother (the uncles' mother) died seven years before I was born and they say that on the other side, she and I are the best of friends and I was so disappointed that we would not be together at all in this life. She's sorry, too, but she just had to go back. I thought this was an interesting observation because I've never talked to anyone about how robbed I feel at not having a chance to know her. I look a lot like her, and have always heard what a great woman she was so it has always felt so unfair that I didn't get to know her. How could they have known that?

I'm rather skeptical of most supernatural phenomena, but this has been a part of my life for so long that I never even questioned it. That realization helps me understand how religious people can have such blind faith. Interesting...
