“Island”

While preparing an episode for The Voices Podcast entitled “My favorite EVP,” I ran across a lost voice in my archives. It was recorded in late August 2012, and basically consisted of a spirit comment to a vacation question. This is coincidental because I leave for vacation in two days – we’re spending a week on the island of St. Croix in my favorite part of the world.

After last year’s highly enjoyable Los Angeles trip, and during my first EVP session back, I wondered aloud where we might go next year – this year. The voice responded by saying “island.” Obviously, I never thought anything more about it since the EVP found a comfortable spot in the archives and was never heard from again. But he knew! He said “island.” We’re going to an island. He was right!

I never plan these things – my wife does all the research and work. All I do is say “yes,” and I didn’t even get that opportunity this year. St. Croix was her choice from the beginning, and I was just relieved to be included. So, I probably won’t accept that I was subconsciously influenced by my chatty deceased friend, but I’m definitely in the coincidence camp this time. Over the years, spirit voices have not shown me a single convincing sign of being clairvoyant, and this singular incident is not nearly enough to change my mind.

But it was a cool rediscovery of yet another EVP of significance. I guess you never know what to expect. Today’s innocuous comment could be tomorrow’s reality. It may have been a time slip, or true evidence of the fluid nature of time; perhaps they actually are in touch with our future. I still haven’t a clue – there’s no proof either way. But one thing’s for certain – we’re going to an island, and before the day is out, I’m gonna turn on a recorder and ask someone how he knew. I doubt I’ll get an answer – it’s just one more on a long list of EVP that make me smile. Maybe I should invite this voice to tag along. Maybe he already said yes.
