I see things. I can see not-so-normal things. When I was a kid I saw visions that most people, including my family, won’t believe. Though not as frequent as people might think, it usually happens when I least expect it. I can still remember some of these strange sightings and its up to you to believe them or not.

i am not alone
I used to collect religious photos when I was a child. My room is filled with pictures of Jesus, saints, angels and other sacred posters. My mother never failed to buy new pictures every week to add to my collection. One time, a sales personnel told her that she should stop buying these items as soon as possible or I will “die” and be in heaven at a young age. Superstitious as she was, my mother submitted to his “theory”. That particular day, I was playing in the street and when I looked up in the sky, I saw a tribe of birds circling around the skies and stitched the word J E S U S. Amazing, right? Maybe my eyes deceived me but I am pretty sure, I saw that clearly and I can still show you the exact location where it happened. Just go to Bacolod. LOL!
That was my first vision. As I grew up, I encountered more and more abnormal sightings. When we were playing hide-and-seek, I stared at the electric wire as I can hear unfamiliar voices. To my surprise, I saw little creatures, perhaps dwarves or elves, handing fruits to me. They were inviting, I must admit, but I wasn’t tempted to accept one. My cousins told me that they’ve been calling me but I am too busy looking up on beings they didn’t see. Actually these sightings occur once in a blue one.
One of the weirdest things I experience happened when I was in college. I peeped outside from our sari-sari store and saw my two female neighbors sweeping their respective backyards. Out of nowhere, I thought, maybe even uttered, that they are going to fight. As I turned to go inside, I heard them cursing each other and throwing whatever they can hold. I felt weird but maybe its just coincidence. Oh, well.
Couple of minutes later, I decided to take an afternoon nap. I walked up to my room and saw my grandmother sitting on her bed. Just by passing, I thought, she’s going to fall down. Few steps away, I heard my mother screamed for help to put back my grandma on the bed again. Two strikes in a matter of minutes. Whew!
As I said, these things don’t happen frequently so I don’t know when the next sighting will occur. When I was working in Pasig, I was stuck in traffic. Seated in the jeepney’s front seat, I saw a young guy riding a bicycle. I stared at him and I unconsciously whispered, an accident coming his way. As soon as he overtook our vehicle, I saw him flying, perhaps, his brakes wasn’t functioning. I may never know.
That’s all I can remember. Those mentioned incidents still give me chills. I hope it won’t be happening again any time soon.
Can I control it? I don’t know. Coincidence? Perhaps. A third-eye? I don’t think so. LOL!
