A description of the experience
Beyond Biofeedback – Drs Elmer and Alyce Green
Several years before I met Alyce in Minneapolis, my mother, father, brother, and I had become aware of what we referred to as "mental telepathy."
Parapsychological events at our home in Duluth, Minnesota, now seem commonplace, compared to present-day reports, but at the time they were quite impressive. For instance, on more than one occasion my mother got inexplicably correct ideas about events in the lives of my brother and myself. It was disconcerting to us for her to know about someone we had met before we had told anyone about him.
It was she who stimulated our interest in and awareness of improbable "coincidences." For a while I kept records of such occurrences. Record keeping seemed to have an awareness-sharpening effect, and I was amazed to note how much I was functioning, or making decisions, with information that was normally unconscious.
On one occasion I had a dream in which, while walking on a featureless gray plain under a uniformly gray sky, I met the brother of a friend, John Feran. This brother, Jerry, had joined the Navy and was stationed at San Diego, California. When we met in the dream I asked how he was feeling, and he gave me a long, detailed description of trouble he had been having with an infection in his leg. He was all right now, he said, but it had been a bad experience. I wished him well, and he continued on his way. The image of Jerry was so vivid that I was jolted from semiawareness into full wakefulness.
The next day I told John about the dream, and he said that his mother was worried because Jerry's regular weekly letters had not come for a month. A week later John called and said a letter had just come from Jerry. He had been in the hospital for a month with an infected leg, resulting in thirty or forty boils, but he was almost well and was being discharged. He had been so uncomfortable that he could not even write home.
