Just for the reference, I have had experiences before with electronics but nothing like this.
This morning my alarm went off at 8 o'clock. For many this is a daily ritual around the world. The only difference is mine was not plugged in, turned on nor have a battery in it for back-up. This clock has been sitting next to my bed for years. I keep it because its numbers are huge and bright and in the wee hours of the morning when I am looking through my sleepy haze, this clock is perfect. Since the invention of the iPhone, I have not used this clock as an alarm in four or five years.
I have three things plugged in next to my bed; my phone, my lamp, and this clock. I had to unplug one because I needed my extension cord elsewhere, so I chose my clock. I had the alarm on my phone set for 9:15 but at 8:00 my alarm starts buzzing away on my clock. I got up to make sure I wasn't losing my mind and sure enough, my clock was not plugged in. At 8:01, the numbers on my clock disappeared as they would have had I just unplugged it but the alarm kept sounding. It took me awhile to turn it off (again it had been awhile since I had used it) and then it simply sat there not making a sound.
I asked my friend, who also has experiences, and she said someone wanted me awake. I do not know the significance of today, that time, or why but I do know that I will do everything I can to make this day mean something. It must mean something to someone. I only wish I knew who... Or what.
If anyone has a similar experience or any input, please let me know. I'm not looking for an explanation, just the comfort of knowing I'm not alone.
