I mentioned childhood in the previous post, I think this may be very important. Children seem to be very receptive to certain things but they may have difficulty in interpreting or expressing this in ways suitable for adults.
Not long ago I was involved in a related discussion on another forum. This jogged my memory to a quite powerful childhood incident. I wrote about it on that forum and got a very good response. Clearly, I am not alone in having such experiences. Below is a copy of my post. I wonder if any here can relate to it?
"...I think this stirred up things in my memory. About a month after making my post I was sitting in a local park, just relaxing when I had a very clear recollection of a childhood event.
I was about nine or ten, more than half a century ago now. We were on a family day out in the Epping Forest area. It was on the return journey, I was in my uncle's car, and it was getting dark. The road was tree-lined, at a certain point I noticed that the trees were big enough for their tops to touch, forming an arch over the road. At that precise moment, very briefly, there was a feeling of being in two places at the same time. The feeling that the trees formed some sort of entrance was powerful but over in a second.
I have so far been unable to find any similar accounts. What I experienced was very real, I don't know what it was but I feel sure that the trees are an important element."
