When I was a teen living at home with my parents my mom would always make me list of things that she needed for groceries. One must remember that this was during the 1980s when there were no cell phones so a list was all that I had as I made my way to the grocery store. But as I walked to the store my mind began to wander and I would think about all sorts of things. I guess you could say that I was in sort of a daydream. Sometimes when I walked I had the strange sensation that someone was trying to communicate with me through extra sensory perception. The first time that this happened to me I thought that I was merely feeling a sensation that was inexplicable.
I entered the grocery store with my list and walking down the aisles looking for the items that my mother wanted. But then for reasons unknown I would start to look at things on the shelf and felt the compulsion to buy them even though they were not on my mother's list. I finished my shopping and started my walk home and I was plagued by the sensation that I had forgotten something at the store even though I had purchased everything on my mother's list. When I arrived home my mother commented that she wanted to make rice crispies squares but she didn't have any marshmallows. I thought this was very weird and a day later my mother was going to make my father an apple pie but she couldn't because she had no pie filling.
I wondered if this was a mere coincidence or if my mother was subconsciously trying to communicate with me. I never said anything about this experience because I didn't want her to think that I was touched in the head.
The next week I went back to the grocery store with her list and again as I was going through the aisles the messages from the dark recesses of my mind came to me and seemed to take hold of my being. I grabbed a can of coffee with out it being on the list and then grabbed a chocolate bar that was also not on the list. Seconds later I put both of them back. When I arrived home my mother said nothing but later on that night she said she wanted a chocolate bar and that she had forgotten to write coffee on her list. The next two times I went to the grocery store the same thing happened. I finally talked to her about my experiences that I was getting messages from the unknown. She laughed and told me I was a little too imaginative.
That day I headed to grocery store but I forgot my list and just as I was about to enter the house to look for it I found it in my pocket. I saw my mom through the window. She was sitting there with her eyes closed in deep concentration.
I walked away and went to the grocery store and felt the unknown compulsion to grab a pail of ice cream. This time I didn't put it back and purchased it.
When I got home my mother was putting away the groceries and she said, "Oh look, ice cream that wasn't on my list."
She then turned to me and smiled.
