Any clairvoyants out there? - Page 3

post #31 of 66

First of all, a big big thank you to all of you who have posted tips and stories. I cannot tell you how much better it has made me feel even though my ring still has not turned up. But I feel now that there is still a chance it could turn up after reading all your incredible stories. Glorioustwelth, your story made my hair stand up on end, how spooky! And Novembercakes, how great your friend was the one who ended up "claiming" the lost necklace in the safe.

I am renting a metal detector tomorrow, and I will get my very devout Catholic MIL to have a chat to St. Anthony too. So fingers crossed!

While I am here I might as well show you all what started the whole disaster. My daughter turned 5 today so we had her birthday party for her friends on Sunday, and then she also celebrated at school in her class. So here are the Hello Kitty themed treats I made for her.

I might be wrong, but I don't think metal detectors will 'detect' gold. I'm sorry I can't remember what the ring was made of. I lost a diamond earring once, then found it in a laundry basket. Things show up in the strangest places... Good luck!!

I once found my mothers wedding ring from her 1st marriage in the freezer. Who knows how long it had been there. She was entirely surprised too! Also, my husband surprised me with both diamond earrings AND pearl earrings on our first Valentine's after we married. I later lost one of the diamond earrings, only for my daughter to find it buried in the carpet by our dresser. Don't worry, it hopefully will turn up!

I once was reading about the power of the subconsious mind, but to cut a long (and boring) story short, it suggested the use of "switchwords" for different areas of ones life, the word for remembering or trying to find things is "REACH", this then supposedly helps to bring things back to the conscious mind.......I must admit I thought how silly....but I have tried it on several occations to remember or find something and it actually worked....give it a try, you never know.....just sit in a quiet place not to be disturbed and just try to rid your mind of all the chatter and keep saying "REACH" I really hope it works for you and find your treasured ring, icon_smile.gif

I have so many "Angel intervention" and "by the Grace of God" stories that I could write a book. This, unfortunately isn't one of them but maybe it will help a little!

My parents have been married for almost 50 years, and back when my dad was proposing he had just landed the job of a lifetime - so, needless to say, my mom's engagement ring is a spectacular emerald shaped diamond.

A few years ago, she was making the morning coffee when she noticed the stone was gone! Let me tell you we all spent DAYS searching their home from top to bottom. She never found it and the remaining set went into a safe deposit box, along with many of her tears.

Spring came, and she was doing her annual "deep cleaning" of the laundry room and lo-and-behold... there in the metal accordian pleated hose leading away from the dryer... was her diamond.

We all devised that somehow it must have fallen out in the night and gotten trapped in the fitted sheet or something, only to have come "dislodged" in the laundry.

DON'T GIVE UP!

But remember (as I'm sure you do) that a ring is a ring, and can eventually be replaced - but you'll never lose the love and sentiments that went along with the giving of that ring!

Good luck with your search!

*and denise4 - your post made me chuckle... I've used "switchwords" before. They DO work!

denise4, interesting theory! I will try that one. The most annoying part of this whole story is that I know I registered the ring falling but I just did not realise what it was at the time. I had this nagging feeling / half memory that kept popping into my head a few times before I realised the ring was gone, and when I realised I had lost my ring the absolute first thing that came into my mind was "oh, that was what that sound was". Needless to say I have been wringing my mind trying to remember where I was at the time, but I just cannot unlock the memory. Makes me want to go to a hypnotist to get the key to my brain. But I am going to try Reach.

khufstetler, your story reminded me that I also once lost the diamond out of my solitaire engagement ring. I for some reason thought it had fallen in my washing machine so I got a technician out to search for it. The guy spent 2 hours picking the washing machine apart, only for me to find the diamond on the floor of my bedroom a few hours later. If nothing else my washing machine got a good clean on the inside. But you are quite right in saying that the importance is the sentiment behind the ring itself, and that is not gone. In the end it is replaceable, but just not knowing what happened is driving me around the bend. icon_confused.gif

Wow, the last thing you wrote about hearing it fall and not know what the sound was happened to me after Christmas. My husband gave me a aniversary ring right before New Years. He had a very hard time keeping this a secret from me and the fact that he had asked me about the ring the year before to find out whether or not I liked it and then ordered it. I was putting away all of our Christmas decorations, wrapping each ornament and decoration. That afternoon, I was visiting with some friends at home and I happened to look at my hand and noticed the ring was gone. I had to first tell my husband and then unwrap every single decoration 3 times. I also went through all the trash bags twice. Tore apart my house. Looked in the garbage disposal, checked the washer and dryer, I knew I had not left my house so it was somewhere. I was in tears. I had remember hearing a sound and not knowing what it was and when I realized that the sound was my ring, I could not remember where I was when I heard the sound. Hours later, my husband was searching yet again, in my closet and spotted the ring under a small rug that the cat sleeps on in my closet. I know I had already check there, but I guess it was caught on the rug and I did not notice it. We figured that I had changed clothes and it flew off, into the closet. My husbands response after finding the ring was, "Well, at least I know that you really liked the ring." Just know that not only is the ring special, but the person that gave it to you is more special. (sorry, bad grammar)

St. Anthony! St. Anthony! St. Anthony! I cannot tell you how many times I have prayed to him and he always comes thru! There's a little prayer that I was taught:

"Tony, Tony turn around. Something's lost and can't be found."
Then you name whatever it is you've lost.

Works like a charm!

Good luck!

Ok, here's an update. No, no, unfortunately the ring is still lost icon_cry.gif . But after having tried the Reach method and St. Anthony and looking and looking some more I have finally decided that I need some help to remember where I was when I heard that something fall. Soo, tomorrow (drumroll please) I am going to a hypnotist icon_eek.gificon_lol.gificon_eek.gificon_lol.gif !

I am scared to death but I am sure it cannot hurt. I have never liked those hypnosis shows on TV, don't really like watching people clucking like chickens and generally humiliating themselves. But I have been assured that this guy is a serious practicioner. My only worry now is that my girlfriend keeps threatening to call him to get him to implant a trigger word which will make me offer baby sitting whenever she says the magic word.

Wish me luck. Will let you know how it went.

good luck!! i know what you're feeling like, i'm a pro at losing jewelry - i found my wedding band in my daughter's knapsack once, lost it 2 days later, found it a year later!! also lost my engagement ring twice, found it, but i lost a watch and earring. once i lost a diamond tennis bracelet, but a kind woman advertised it in the local paper (it was worth over $500!) so i hope if you ring was lost in the street, a really nice person finds it!!

wow, what an ordeal you have had. good luck finding the ring. try the metal detector, though, even if it can't pick up gold, the prongs might be a different metal.

please keep us updated!

and cute hello kitties, btw!
