Paranormal or Coincidence ?

Hi ! Renkyoko Iglesias here !


Holloween is just around the corner…….  and I just realized that in all the years  that I’ve been writing about anything under the sun here on WordPress,  I have never written  about  a topic  that I like  …… scary stuff and things that go bump in the night.


So, do you believe in ghosts or in  the paranormal ?    To be honest,  I am not sure that I don’t.


Let me tell you a story.  There were two unexplainable incidents that happened to my mother.  One occurred when she was in 6th grade, the other in 2005.  When Mom was in 6th grade, her grandmother  who lived in the ” province ” fell ill.  When the incident happened,  the whole family had just come home from visiting her, and their grandmother was fine when they left her .  Then one night, something woke up Mom’s older brother (  a college student ) . Something or someone sprinkled water on his face. He also felt  that something bad happened to the grandma.  With the parents’ permission, he and my mother  went back to the province  early morning ( which was about 250 miles away, by the way ) to check up on their grandma.  She was already dead when they arrived.  Then in 2005,  the same thing happened to my mother.  She freaked out  when she felt water on her face, but  was relieved that Dad was snoring   beside her .  She got up to check up on all of us,  and  yes, we were all * cough *  alive. But she knew  something bad had happened, so she took note of the time. It was  3 AM.  At  6  AM, she got a call from my aunt in the Philippines to inform her that our second cousin, Jay,  died  of heart attack while playing basketball  that night  , 7PM Philippine time, or 3 AM  US time .  Jay was the son of Dad’s first cousin who lived next door to our house  in the Philippines.  Jay was only  25  years old.  But then,  Jay was only a second cousin, right ?   Well, Jay lived with us here in the US  for 4 years to study  and went home to the Phil.  right  after graduation in October, 2004. By March, 2005, 5 months after coming home,  Jay was dead  from undiagnosed heart condition.  Jay was part of our family for 4 years …. my parents treated him like a son. We were his immediate family .  I guess Jay thought it was just right that we were one of the first to know that he had passed on by giving a sign.


So, here’s my question…. were they mere coincidences or  was it something else ?  You be the judge.

This is all for now. Thank you for reading.
