I'm an 18 year old female and I've "BEEN" seeing dead people! I honestly wish I could understand the real reason why this happens to me. If someone very close to me is going to die I can feel it weeks before it happens. I actually have this "Death feeling" that I cannot explain.
In 2010 I was 12-13. To make this long story short, my male cousin died and I saw him on his own memorial day! He got sick and was admitted to the hospital. It wasn't that serious but I got a death feeling that I was going to lose someone close to me.
I told my mom he was going to die. My mom said I shouldn't say that. I wanted to go see him at the hospital one last time because I knew he wasn't going to make it. But I never did go.
On his memorial day, his friend was saying his farewell to my cousin and he also mentioned a couple of all the nice things about him. Then the people were laughing and all. Then I looked to my right and I saw him with the other guys who were alive. He was also laughing along with the others.
I wanted to scream, but came to my senses that people will perceive me as CRAZY! So I tapped my female cousin who was seating in my left. I looked at the male section again and he was still there.
My female cousin had no idea what was going on. Nobody had. Only I could see him. My female cousin made eye contact with me and I tried showing her with my eyes, she looked and still didn't see his ghost. And it was still there! She could see the fear in my eyes but she couldn't understand what was going on!
After the funeral my little brother reported to having seen ghostly figures in there.
My sister's boyfriend died and a year later I was walking on the street and saw a guy I knew but as I got closer I realized it wasn't his own face but my sister's boyfriend. I was so confused... This guy wouldn't normally speak to me but he would greet here and there.
This time he had a serious look on his face and said, "You're very beautiful, take care of yourself." I wasn't focusing on what he was saying but at his face, because I knew that guy and knew that this wasn't him I was looking at.
I told my parents about it and they were shocked! My mom went pale and said WHAT? I smiled and lied to her and said that it was all a joke. Because she takes everything lightly and I, myself, couldn't understand what had happened.
In 2013 I lost someone I deeply cared about, we shall call him "M". Now M and I used to be classmates years ago in primary school. Fast toward to the future, he was 18, I was 15 and I happened to bump into him at a shop one day after school (mind you, we went to different high schools but we were doing the same grades). I actually greeted him and we had a conversation. "M" was very friendly, down to earth, shy, he had a good personality, he was cute and I liked him.
A few weeks went by and I was in the house looking outside the window. I saw "M" passing by. I called my mom who was close by and when she saw him she smiled and pitied him since he had lost all his family at such a young age.
"M" was the only one left in his family. His father got ill and passed away. M's little brother died a few years later and M's mother died two years later leaving "M" alone with the family from his mom's and dad's side.
Now there is an incident that occurred years before "M's mother passed away which still bothers me. One day I was walking to my Aunt's house which happens to be opposite M's house. As I was approaching from the distance, M's mom had just arrived from work. She drove in the driveway and got out of her car carrying some files. She was about to close the door when she saw me and she literally froze on the spot and stared right at me!
I was confused, I thought I was going to greet her but I did not because I didn't know what was happening. She had a blank look on her face and her eyes moved along with me... I looked away and looked again, she was still looking at me. I was astonished but I did not show it. I walked passed her and looked back... To my surprise she was still staring at me (this was the first time I met M's mother and it was like she knew / she could see something about me). I heard the car door being slammed shut and I turned around and it was like nothing happened. She locked her car and walked to her house.
That was the first and last time I met M's mom. After she had died two years after her death M stayed with his cousins in his mother's house.
My Aunt (who is the cause of all pain in the family) got sick and went to the hospital. I wasn't really bothered. I just didn't care... A few weeks later a feeling of death overcame me. It was so intense! I wasn't bothered since I knew it was my aunt. The second week the feeling just became too much.
I usually pray and ask god to spare whoever's life is on the line when I get this feeling. But this time, I told myself whatever! Because it was the aunt who was the cause of all pain in the family.
The feeling lasted for two weeks and it suddenly disappeared. By the third week my sister's mom came for a visit and as they were having a conversation I was eavesdropping on them.
They had a conversation and then she said to mom: Have you heard about M? My mom said: No, what happened? As soon as my mom's sister said he had passed away, I couldn't control myself.
Tears filled my eyes. I couldn't believe what I had just heard. I was silently crying and tears were uncontrollably running down my cheeks. I thought to myself: No, no, no, no! NO! My mom was shocked! She also couldn't believe it. M "drowned" and his body was missing in the sea for three days. It was so painful to me because I cared about him and it turned out that he was the one I had a death feeling on. Not my aunt.
On his funeral day I was in my room crying my eyes out! I kept asking WHY? And HOW COULD HE JUST LEAVE LIKE THAT WITHOUT EVEN SAYING GOODBYE?
I took a deep breath, wiped my tears and pulled myself together. I got off the bed and when I turned he was right there smiling at me!
He was so beautiful! I just stood there staring at him (I wish I had reached out). I blinked and he was still there, he was wearing a white shirt that which had a design I had never seen in this world before. His shirt was SO white and it kind of looked like a dress with many layers like rose petals (It sounds absurd but that how I can describe it). I've come to think of it I never saw his arms or feet... After that he slowly faded away until he was all gone.
I just want to be normal like other teenagers sometimes. I don't want to know who will die next or what will happen next because I cannot take it sometimes... I just feel crazy!
