This is my first time on this wonderful forum. I am a 62 year old intelligent well educated woman who is about to lose her mind over lost rings. I am very open minded but cautious about things I do not understand and I do believe in the paranormal and find it fascinating.
I am in a real dilemna. In November 2008 when packing for our yearly Bahamian time share two week vacation on the day before we left I decided to 'hide' my deceased Mother's wedding rings, her very valuable dinner ring and a fancy dinner ring I bought made of very high grade artificial diamonds. I have not hidden anything of value when traveling for over 25 years but for some reason decided to do it this time with these select items. I used to hide rings among the towels in the linen closet but not this time. I did one heck of a job of hiding the rings as I cannot find them. All I remember is saying to myself "no one will ever find them here". Well.....thats the truth as I cannot. I have spent the last few months on a methodical search beginning in the bedroom where I packed and nothing yet. Its driving me crazy as you can imagine. By the way I was sober and lucid when packing! I do tend to have a very busy 'brain' but not at all scatterbrained . I even thought about hypnosis but as a Psych major in college an expert tried and I could not 'clear' my busy mind to let any suggestions in.
I have looked in every container, every pair of socks, underwear, box,etc to no avail in the bedroom. Took out every towel/sheet and then moved on to the other two bedrooms...nothing! Looked in all vases, glasses, bowls,etc in the downstairs too and there is hardly any place left to look. Checked pockets of every coat, jacket, pants and in every shoe and purse . At first I was somewhat content with the knowledge that the rings ARE IN THE HOUSE but now that I have searched for so long I am really getting worried that I may never find them.
I am really seriously distressed over this at this point in time and decided to ask you this forum for advice as to how to proceed. I have not dreamed about the rings and have tried to sit down quietly and 'imagine' where they could be but I draw a complete blank. Traced where I retrieved articles for vacation in various rooms but nothing helps. This house is not small and cluttered with all sorts of geegaws and antiques and collectibles so its a real hunting process but like I said I am running out of places to look.
I kept thinking the location of the rings would 'come to me' over time in some kind of epiphany but its been 4 months and its time to consult.
Thanks for anything you can offer,
