While there are many books and articles about unexpected signs and relationships, most were written before the increased availability of organized bereavement and other support groups and social media. Today, these provide a new opportunity to collect and share a large sample of data that was previously unavailable. The Angel Tracking Project is designed to collect this data, utilizing a short ten-question, web-accessible survey. The resulting information, once collected, will be posted to help comfort survivors, loved ones and friends, reminding them that they are not alone, and their experiences are very common and genuine.
If you have experienced unexplainable signs yourself, please help support this project by taking the anonymous Survey on the next page. The third page provides you with real-time, online Survey Results, including comments that are fascinating. The fourth has Background information. On the last page, you can add your contact information to receive final results, new information, and references.
Please forward the web link to others you know that have had similar experiences so they can get involved.
Many widows and widowers, as well as others who have lost close loved ones, or nearly lost their own life, frequently experience seemingly unexplainable signs or events. Simple things like a light turning on and off, the repeated appearance of coins on the ground, a familiar symbol showing up many times over, a lucid dream of the deceased, a familiar smell, or a feeling of someone's presence. While there are many books and articles with descriptions and anecdotal examples of these unexplained events, little data has been collected to provide evidence that these experiences are in fact common, often reoccur, and are very real. Our Western culture is largely skeptical of these events and many even get uncomfortable feeling they conflict with their own beliefs. As a result, when survivors describe their experiences to others, they are often met with polite doubt, critical skepticism, or even thoughtless clichés, like "oh sure" or "get over it." Instead of feeling supported, they have to spend energy defending themselves, withdraw from connecting with others, feel isolated, and gradually reluctant to share future experiences.
