Only a couple of times in my life have I really thought “WOW that was freaky!”
OK so there have been many strange experiences in my life. Moments when I have been thinking of someone and then they call, or I suddenly run into them. I have had dreams about people and then they have somehow come true or it meant that I needed to call them. These are things that I think happen to
everyone, but only a couple of times in my life have I really thought “WOW that was freaky!”
One of those times happened when I was about ten years old.
When I was a kid I lived on an orange farm. We had lots of snakes and mum used to always say we were not allowed to walk through long grass without long protective boots. We usually heeded this warning, but one day as we were walking down to our cubby house, I was stomping through long grass while wearing tiny shoes. I had been walking for quite a while, then all of a sudden something stopped me in my tracks. I froze. It was as if someone tapped me on the shoulder and said ‘Stop!’ I looked down and there under my hovering foot was a brown snake head. We had both frozen.
I was mere centimetres away from stepping on a deadly snake when something – I guess a sixth sense made me look down and weirdly, I did not scream. I just slowly stepped backwards. The snake somehow slid backwards too. It was as if we both mentally said “I don’t want any trouble, let’s not do this today!”
The showdown that was about to happen was avoided. So whether that was ESP, a guardian angel (doubtful), instinct, whatever I want to thank what it was because whatever it was that made me look down made sure that I was here to write about it today!!
