Not exactly paranormal… but strange. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Have been reading about experiences about the paranormal and wanted to share something strange that happened to me about eighteen years ago. I was a cleaner for a family and would often work alone at their house. This one time I heard someone knocking at the door. I went to answer it and found a gypsy standing there. Living in a rural area I knew there were often gypsies passing through the area, but I’d never known one to bother local residents. This one looked youngish, and just stood there. “I wanted to tell you,” she said. “You will have Craig before long.”
My husband and I had been trying for a baby, but it was a secret and we hadn’t shared it with anyone. How could she possibly know? Also, how could she possibly know that we wanted to call the boy Craig after his great uncle? I was shocked. She turned and left and that was it. I still, to this day, wonder what happened and how she knew? I also wish I’d been able to ask more questions of her—but at the time I was standing there with my mouth open unable to say a word.
Has anyone else had any experience with gypsies or fortune tellers? I think there’s more to it than we’d like to believe.
