About 7 or 8 years ago my friends and I were driving home from a late night movie. We were driving up a hill, and there was this weird blue flash/wave that went through the sky. It was weird because it was extremely blue, but it wasn't bright at all, so it didn't illuminate anything. As the wave went past the street lights they would all go out. It seemed that all the power in the town went out, but the car we were in was just fine. It wasn't a scary paranormal type experience or anything, but I've never seen anything else like it. Other than my 2 friends, I've never met anyone else that's witnessed anything like this.
The only other paranormal type experience I've had is when I was about 8 or 9. It was in the middle of summer and my sister and I decided to sleep outside in the front yard in hammocks we made by tying sheets to branches of a big tree. Sleeping in the front yard with no fence or anything definitely seems like a big kidnapping risk, but I don't think my sister and I informed our parents that we were doing this, so they can't be blamed for letting us do something so stupid. Anyway, I woke up at about 2 or 3 in the morning and I was extremely frightened and I didn't know why. I didn't hear a voice in my head exactly, but I got a thought in my head that was telling me to get up and go inside immediately. When I got out of my hammock, my sister was already out of hers and she also looked extremely scared. She grabbed my arm and then we ran into the house. I told her about how I had the thought in my head telling me to go inside right then, and she told me she had a very similar thought that was something along the lines of "Don't worry, Paul's already awake. Go inside now." So, that was pretty freaky since we both had essentially the same experience at the same time. I have no idea if we were actually in any sort of danger, but we sure as hell didn't try spending the night in the front yard ever again. As for the explanation as to what happened; I really don't know. If such a thing as guardian angels exists, maybe that's what happened. Or maybe our intuition/spider sense kicked in due to some impending but unknown danger.
"Relative protection", to coin a punny term.
I believe that in some cases a dead relative is relatively trying to protect you with some bizarre form of Spider-sense, like how you mentioned.
That IS "Para"-normal!
Let me check what that aminal's appearance means in Native American lore.
