Dead Brother Rung His Sister's Doorbell

Ghostly hand ringing door bell

The Daily Mail newspaper has been publishing stories about Near Death Experiences taken from a new book The Wisdom Of Near Death Experiences by Dr Penny Sartori. This led to some of their readers sending in associated stories about their own experiences - though not necessarily about true NDEs. Here's one example of the stories published, which is more to do with precognition or contact with a deceased loved one.

I picked out this particular story because of the writers age! It's by Carol Kingston, age 67, from Milton Keynes in England. This is her story:

"It was one o'clock in the morning in May 1982 when the ring of the doorbell woke us up. My husband John went downstairs to answer the door then returned to the bedroom looking miffed, saying nobody was there.

For some unknown reason I had a strong sense it was my 25-year-old younger brother Steve. He was in the SAS and based nearby. A few seconds later it rang again and John traipsed back down the stairs. Again, there was nobody there. It buzzed a few more times after that, but we decided to ignore it.

At 10am the next morning my father phoned with devastating news. Some officers had arrived to inform him that Steve had been killed in a helicopter crash in the Falklands.

At that stage we knew very few details of how he had died but that night my oldest son, Robin, who was then eight, had a dream that his Uncle Steve had risen up out of the water with his arms up and said: 'Don’t worry about me. I'm OK now.' Incredibly, I too had experienced the exact same dream.

We later learnt that the helicopter had crashed into the South Atlantic Ocean and Steve had drowned."

  1. What an amazing story! The ringing doorbell and the exact same dreams: that's powerful!

    1. There have been a few pretty convincing stories published - good to see in a mainstream newspaper.

    2. This has to be one of the most thought-provoking books covering NDE's etc ever. Reader's comments are so consistent in the events experienced that even hardened sceptic's must take notice.Just goes to confirm my own beliefs.

    3. Agreed Chris. I was looking through the comments left by Daily Mail readers following their original story - as you say even the doubters surely can't write them all off.

  2. a great story and the book looks like its interesting as well
