I was lying in bed trying to sleep, but I couldn't because it was a very hot summer evening. All of a sudden I heard an old man's deep, low voice say "Your grandmother will die." Those exact words- no "Sorry". It was hard to tell if his voice was in my head or so close in my right ear. At the very same time he spoke, I had a still vision of my grandmother's face. She was smiling.
I was the only person in the room. I could not see the old man. I don't know who the old man is.
I was a 10 year-old-atheist who had never heard of psychics when I experienced this. I did not believe in an afterlife, God/Goddess, heaven or hell. I believed that I was going insane. I was hallucinating and hearing a voice in my head. I was so scared, partly because I believed I was going crazy and partly because of the message. As soon as I thought: "My grandmother won't die anytime soon. She's not that old and she's not very ill", I felt in my heart that she would die within a week (I felt the number 1 and the number 7 and that there were straight, verticle lines in between 1 and 7. Each number and line represented a day. I felt them like someone had written them in my heart). I did not believe she would die. I was crazy, I thought.
A few hours later, my grandmother (the woman in the vision) died.
When she died, I was sad and scared (I always feel scared when someone dies). Then, all of a sudden, I felt such peace. All the fear was gone. I feel that she was with me in the room. I could not see her.
I believe in the afterlife now, but I'm unable to believe in a religion or God/Goddess.
