Knowing When Relatives Die


I didn't really realize this knack of knowing until after my grandfather died. I had went out with a good friend of mine. We were on our way home, when I turned to her and said that I needed to go see my pawpaw soon, because he was going to die. She said that I looked totally different, I didn't look like myself and when I had finished, I returned to normal. That was six months before he died. I didn't get to see him, but my dad did. He waited until the last of his children came to see him. He died within two hours of the last one's visit. The same year, my aunt went into the hospital, I helped talk my dad into going to see her. She was in the hospital for the tumors in her brain. The meds they had her on was helping, but we found out after my dad went and visited that they were causing her to hemorrhage in her stomach. She bled out and died.

The year before that, my husband's grandfather was having open heart surgery, my husband was upset and thinking that his grandfather wasn't going to make it. I told him that his grandfather was going to be fine. But in the back of my mind I knew someone else in his family wasn't. I wasn't concentrating hard enough to focus on who it was at the time. I was trying to consol my husband. His aunt died the next morning in her sleep at the hospital, where they had stayed in a room set up by the hospital for the grandmother and aunt. I felt that she had switched places with her dad that morning. I knew the that my aunt had died, I dreamed that one. I went to their house, and she was sitting on the couch. I asked her where were all of the rest of the family. She said, "They're in there, sha." And she pointed toward the back of the house, I went to the back of the house and they were there, dressed in black, taking communion, lighting candles, and kneeling in front of a cross. I asked what where they doing, and they told me that she had died and they were mourning for her. It ended there. About two days later, I told my dad about it and he called down there. Sure enough, she had died about a month before.

I knew the instant that my grandmother had died. I was at home cooking supper and all of a sudden, a wave of nausea came over me. I felt as if I was cut into. I told my husband to come over and finish cooking, I had to go and sit down. I told him that something wasn't right. It passed as fast as it started. I told him that I was okay and finished cooking. About 30 minutes later, my mom come over and told us that my grandmother had died exactly 30-35 minutes ago. I looked at my husband and he said that he thinks that I had already knew that, because of what happened. And I tell my mom the whole story.

Now when it comes to friends, I have noticed that I hear death bells. And one time I heard them about one week before my dad died. Of which I knew that he was going to die 7 months before he did die. I came in from the hospital, and looked at my husband and told him that they were killing him. I knew it then and there was nothing I could do, because it was already set into motion. I knew when I left my uncle at the nursing home that that would be the last time I would see him alive. I didn't want to leave the nursing home, even though we were going back there in the morning. We lived 1 hour and 15 minutes away from the nursing home. We had stopped by the store before going to get my son and they had called letting me know that he had just died.

But I go on, I know that this is my gift and have learned to live with it. I know that when I hear the death bells, that someone is going to die. I may not be clear on who it is, but I know that it will be someone close. And I know that certain relatives affect you differently as they are leaving this existence.

Thanks for reading my stories, I do appreciate the comments.

I think if you wanted to put energy into it you could know the who and an idea of the when I have dreams before things happen and wake up abruptly with a sudden urge for something like the last few nights my dreams have been about me being at my fathers funeral I look at the casket than walk away into a white light, today I had a sudden urge that I need to call him and was later told that he is not doing well, after I told my mother he is going to die while gasping for his last breaths, the when is soon but after Christmas, I believe you too can learn to distinguish more from these energies, you have to want it though and except it, I told my grandmother when I was 8 that she couldn't die yet, she came out of the ambulance sat up from a coma and asked to see me with a big smile, when she finally passed I told her good bye that night and asked her to stay by my side, she still is there when I need someone to talk to, know that all your loved ones are still with you, but talk to them privately, death it self is not a bad thing it's about celebrating the life they had, they leave us when the time is right, they have found peace, I hope this helps and know you are not alone, and you possibly can stop it if your energies are strong enough with out being a selfish I hope this helps:)

Zero One: I don't mind at all, in fact, I am glad that you shared this. I think you will have to play a pivotal role in helping him when she does pass. I am sorry it is not a question of if, it's when. That is another reason I think that we know that people close to us are going to die, is that we grieve for them. Even though they are still here, we make the most of while they are here. And then we help others to go on with their grief, when the time comes.
But if you need a shoulder, I am always here and my email is on my page.

Simple and DreamState: Thanks for sharing your comments, I really do appreciate all of them. I have had this "gift" for 19 years now. I don't think that it will get any clearer or better. Sometimes, I'll get a shock of someone dying that I didn't know about, but it is very rare. I hear the death bells and watch to see who it tolls for, usually a friend or distant relative.

That's is interesting story and I don't have gift like that so that's good in away. I am sorry that you have to know when somebody have to die but you just have to tell them to live there lifes fullest and that will be good. Your right life is to short but if you just live happy and don't stress your life will be long threw your eyes.

Hello jadetiger, nice to meet you. It sounds like your abilities are pretty strong in terms of knowing, as most intuition is. It is lucky that you are open to these intuitions in ways that not everyone is. Unfortunately, I know where you are coming from here. When I think of my grandfather, I have a constant image of his innerself tortured by the life he is living. It's a cycle... Torture, denial, pure love, sorrow, torture... And so forth.

My grandfather is taking care of my grandmother who has Alzheimer's. The two of them are soul mates and my grandfather is tortured, blaming the universe and then feeling guilty for the blame.

I hope you don't mind my sharing this with you, I just know that we can equally understand these types of tragedies.

Best wishes.

I think it's more of a preparation of shock. The first thing you feel is shock, then remorse. Think about it, if you ever lose someone suddenly or over a time and you that they're going to die. You still feel the shock. So in a way it's a preparation. The ones that I knew were going, the shock wasn't quite as bad and I was able to accept their going much faster and easier.
Thanks for responding.

I was thinking that gift could also be given to you so you are able to prepare for such things. But, how can one ever prepare for such things?

ICU-I do always try to see the positive in people and life. I do pick up on those also. I have angels who have visited me and who have whispered in my ear, to give me messages for people. So I have experienced good things. I think I know about the death part as to prepare other people and sometimes myself.

It is so terrible to have a gift like that. However, knowing how life is short, it makes you realise that we should be living our life to the fullest and spending it with love ones. I don't understand why you are picking up only on death, that is morbid. Have you tried to focus on other positive things in life and see if you can pick up that instead?
