She replied, “I don’t know how I know, but I know.”
I don’t know if any of you out there believe in ESP, but I do.
Let me relay something that happened to me a few weeks ago, and see if you are a believer as well.
I was strolling through the mall with my twelve-year-old niece who I had promised to take shopping that day. Her birthday was approaching and she was very excited because she knew she could pick out her present.
We went into a few stores and I was starting to grow impatient because she didn’t like anything. She can be a little picky and I didn’t want to spend hours searching for a gift. So, I gently urged her to make a selection, but being a bit stubborn she wasn’t inclined to “just buy anything.”
Then it happened!
A man ran out of one of the stores and down the escalator just as we were going up. He seemed panicked and then we saw why. He was being pursued by two men from the store who were hollering that the man was a thief.
Once the man got to the bottom of the escalator he quickly ran into the garage. It’s a huge indoor garage with many levels. And the two men followed him in there.
After a moment, we decided to continue shopping, and we were hoping no one would get hurt. About half an hour later, we happened to pass the two men who were coming out of the garage and it was evident they hadn’t captured the man.
As they walked by, my niece said she knew where the man was hiding. One of the men heard her and said, what? She said did you look on the roof? When they pointed out that the man had run downstairs after they saw him in the garage, my niece said, “I’m sorry, but he’s up there.”
When they inquired how she knew, she replied, “I don’t know how I know but I know.” The two men looked at one another, said what the heck, and went back in the garage. This time with a couple security guards.
Within ten minutes I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was one of the men and he told us they captured the guy, and he was, indeed, up on the roof.
Well, my niece got a one hundred dollar gift certificate to use in any store of her choosing. When I asked her how she knew, she said sometimes she gets a vision in her head; and this time she saw that man hiding behind one of the parked cars, and she could see the roof line behind him.
