A Woman Claims Her Deceased Grandmother’s Spirit ‘Took Selfie to Send Family Help Message From Other Side’.
Terribly frightened 34-year-old Gina Mihai, of Romania, is convinced that her dead grandmother’s ghost is speaking from beyond the grave and requesting that her family sends prayers her way.
Terror-stricken, Gina Mihai said her deceased grandmother had a snake wrapped around her neck in an image she claims to have been taken by the grandma posthumously. Convincing the woman of her ghostly admission further, a fortune teller told Gina Mihai that the picture was indeed a message from another dimension.
The ghostly selfie
Gina Mihai is positive that the ghost of her grandmother is calling out with an urgent instruction for help. Crazed Romanians have been bombarding churches to pray for Gina after it was told to her that she was being punished ‘in the other life’ for her sins by a fortune teller.
Picture of the grandmother
“When I switched the phone on I was horrified to see my dead grandmother’s face, “stated Gina Mihai. “She had what looked like a snake around her neck, and the whole image looked as if it had been taken through a hole, like it was shot through a tear in the fabric that separates the living from the dead.”
“I took it to a fortune teller who told me that my grandmother was sending me a message from the other side, the snake around her neck was a symbol of the fact that she was being punished in the other life for some sin.”
“By contacting us she was telling us that if we were to pray for her, we would still be able to save her soul.”
Similar to the more commonly known tradition “Day of the Dead” in Mexico, Romanians hold a feast once a year, the Service of Alms, where they migrate to graveyards in the community to offer food as an expression the deceased in the afterlife.
Gina stated: “My grandmother died three years ago and I haven’t taken any food for her to the graveyard.”
“I was making doughnuts at the time and didn’t want to get the phone dirty so I put it in my pocket, and when I took it out there was the image on the phone.”
“The fortune teller told me that was a mistake not to have paid tribute to her with an offering of food, and it was significant that she contacted me while I was cooking. I have taken doughnuts to the cemetery every day since then.”
Another relative of the deceased grandmother, Florica Mihai, 45, said: “The village priest told me that we need to do 40 Days of Alms to make up for those that we missed and we are doing it now. We want to help her soul to be saved.”
I am a firm believer in the afterlife and spirits of people that have passed on are capable, and often enthusiastic about, communicating with their loved ones left behind on earth. I’ve had several frightening, and unexplainable events occur in front of my eyes to turn me into an absolute believer. I’ve never heard of or seen a person’s spirit taking a “selfie” of themselves on a phone or otherwise.
When looking at the picture claimed by Gina Mihai to be her departed grandmother with a snake around her neck, and compared it to the photos of her while still alive, it did appear to be the same person. The crotchety way the picture was taken does make imagining a ghost taking it easier, and the spooky ghostlike appearance to the woman’s face definitely makes me lean more towards agreeing with Gina Mihai and family that her grandmother did indeed call out from the grave.
