Welcome to the
Angel Tracking Project


 Many  who have lost close loved  ones  frequently experience seemingly unexplainable signs or events. Simple things like a light flashing on and  off, the repeated appearance of an object, like coins on the ground,, a familiar  smell, like perfume, the feeling of someone's presence or touch, a familiar symbol showing up many times over,  or a lucid dream of the deceased. 

For years there have been many books and articles  describing many  examples of these  unexplained events. But aside from these stories, little real data has been collected and published to provide evidence  that these experiences are in fact common to ordinary people, reoccur often, and are very  real to the person having the experience. 

Because our Western culture is largely skeptical of unexplainable events like these, many of the people having the experience get uncomfortable after they are met with polite doubt, critical skepticism, or even thoughtless  clichés, like "oh sure," "that's crazy," or "get over it."  As a result, instead of feeling supported or even defending themselves, they commonly hide and become very reluctant to share.

Most of the books and articles written about these unexpected experiences were written before the common appearance of support groups to share experiences and readily available social media to spread the experiences to a wide audience. Today,  these provide a new opportunity for these people to discover they are not alone and to share and collect a large sample of  data that was previously locally closeted and unavailable. 

The Angel Tracking Project was started in 2017 to collect a sample of this data using a short ten-question,  web-accessible survey.  Although the  survey  was only run a relatively short time and is currently inactive, the results are posted  here to help comfort survivors and friends that they are not alone, their experiences are surprisingly common and  very genuine.  

In addition to the results a list of references are also provided that list several related surveys discovered after this project was started, as well as further background and future project plans to expand this investigation. 

Please forward this web link to others you know that have had unexpected experiences that may benefit from this information and sign up to follow future progress.




 The survey list was developed based on a list of unexpected events that appeared in a number of the books and articles listed in the references. Interestingly, the list in these references was surprisingly common to each and consisted of about 10 categories listed below.

Previous  articles dealing with unexplained signs suggest the "theory" that  unexplained events are real, but they are only based on anecdotal  descriptions from a handful of interviews. Left to form their own  opinions, believers will probably remain believers, based on their  pre-existing "beliefs," and skeptics will continue to dismiss.  AngelTracker is not intended to be a scientific study to prove/disprove  or explain the unexplainable. But it provides a sizable number of the responses  to provide confirming evidence that these experiences are very common and  real in a large community. While not scientific evidence, the intent to only to provide some comfort to  the survivor community. The goal is just that simple.  



A number of years ago my wife died of cancer. Several months after, odd inexplicable  events started occurring with some frequency. Lights flickering on and off,  pictures falling off the wall for no seeming reason, pennies showing up  unexpectedly in front of my car door, and the landing of a butterfly on my hand. Even though I'm now in a new relationship, these occurrences still happen with regular frequency. 

The death of my wife caused a number of radical shifts in my life. I started taking yoga, exposing me to a new community of broad 

Soon after, in a grievance support group I  was surprised to hear first-hand descriptions about similar  experiences by almost every member. Later,  while exploring several on-line, I discovered many others sharing personal stories about a wide range of unexplained  experiences. Hearing about how common these unexplained experiences were  opened my eyes to the possibility that they were very real, occurred  frequently, and occurred widely in this community. But having the opportunity to talk to others directly, I also discovered  that many kept their experiences to themselves.

We have all heard common folklore about such events described as messages  from loved ones who have passed. I have been a scientist and  technologist for over 40 years, so I've always been a natural skeptic.  But these very personal and very vivid experiences dramatically changed  my world view.

Being a researcher by profession, these new surprises triggered my curiosity to investigate more broadly searching online. Again to my surprise I discovered that these experiences were actually just the tip of an iceberg of active 

topics I’d never  researched, like spirituality, and recent developments in quantum  physics and biology I hadn’t been watching for decades. 

I learned that a  growing number of respected scientists have become more open minded  about links between spirituality and science for the first time since  discarded in the 17th century for a mechanistic worldview. While today's  conventional science still cannot provide complete explanations, that  doesn't mean that the events don't occur and are very real. Rapidly  evolving concepts of a conscious universe, an entangled quantum universe  interconnected everywhere, have become hot topics in the science  research literature, general interest science articles, and even minor  Hollywood movies. 

 This knowledge inspired me to continue my journey to learn more about  unexplainable phenomena. I have since plunged much deeper into both the  related science developments, as well as the spiritual side - which was a  new horizon for me to explore. While my new passion is driven partly to  explore the science to convince the skeptics, I became aware that the  large survivor community cared more about knowing they were not alone in  their experiences. That need for comfort became the inspiration for the  Angel Tracking Project, to fill the gap for missing data that  unexplained experiences are in fact frequent and very widespread. The  fact that we can't explain these events today doesn't mean they do not  happen and are not real. This is not a systematic research study. The  goal is not to prove anything or change minds; it just hopes to inform  both the survivors and skeptics that the raw, unsummarized data,  confirms that these unexplained phenomena are very real, common. and  frequent.
