Before I Was Born: My First Paranormal Experience


You could say that my very first paranormal experience was when while I was still a baby... Inside my mother's womb.

Mom and Dad had been married for only a year when my Mom's father -- the grandfather I never got to know -- had a heart attack and died on the spot.

Since Mom was the eldest child and the first one to get married, my grandfather had been looking forward to seeing his grandkids, but never had the chance. He'd already been dead a few months when my Mom finally got pregnant with her first child, which turned out to be me.

Mom says I was about 7 months old in her womb when she woke up suddenly one night. She didn't know what time it was, and was about to go back to sleep when she noticed something strange about the bedroom wall right in front of her.

At first she thought she was looking at smoke, and wondered if there was a fire. But she didn't smell any fire, and pretty soon from out of the smoke she saw the figure of her recently-deceased father, walking as if coming from a long way off. Within a few moments he was in front of her, in their room, standing at the foot of their bed (my Dad was sleeping soundly right next to her).

Grandfather was breathing heavily -- as if he'd really traveled from a far off place -- and Mom said he looked exactly the way he did when he was still alive. My grandfather never said anything. He simply stood there, smiled at her, and smiled at her womb and the grandchild she was carrying (me). After a few more moments, he slowly disappeared.

My mom says she never felt any fear all throughout the experience... And never had any visits from her father ever again.

Something like this happened to my mum too! But this did not happen when I was in her womb. I was already 8 years old when my gramma on my mum side passed so I got to know her. It happened after my son was born. 1 week after my son was born, my mum had a dream about my gramma introducing my son to her. It was touching really, brought tears to my eyes.

I think your grandfather paid you a visit that night, and a very comforting one at that! 😁

Hi I like your story, the same happened with my mam. Ever considered you are your grandfather, those sort of things tend to happen.

Thank you for your encouraging comments!

X-kyle55-x: Maybe he is one of my guardians.

SDS: True. And thank you.

SirenBelva: That is an interesting observation! My own observation has been that children and teens seem to have more paranormal experiences, too.

Lovebugs16: Yes, this was just recently approved. Thanks!

Hello Santos, welcome to YGS. That was very nice of your grandfather to come and bless you and your mother. May be he came a long way indeed and as he wanted to see his grandchildren, he might have come to see her and you, even if you were in womb.

Nice narration and thanks for sharing.

Regards and respects to you.

It seems that it is common for pregnant women to have paranormal experiences. Either their senses are heightened or maybe they attract the energy.
