- The most significant event that happened to the Swito Twins in 2010
I never believed in Clairvoyance. My twin does but not me. But I must admit that when I was young I often dream of events and they happen the next day. One example was the time I dreamed that my sister was pregnant. A week after, she finally told our parents that she was carrying their first grand daughter. Same thing happened when my yaya's neice got married. I dreamed of it the month before she told my yaya. But I thought it was merely a coincidence.
I did not dream of anything related to the year 2010. Not at all. Not even anything following this year. So I concluded my disbelief for Clairvoyance.
Assuming the same point of view, I almost concluded that my nephew would not talk at all. When he was running 9 years old, he had a hard time making simple sentences with an appropriate subject and a verb. I thought that he did not comprehend the things that adult people say.
But the most unexpected event happened on the first month of 2010. My nephew finally said, “Thank you aunty" in the sincerest tone after he received a gift from my twin sister.
"Thank you aunty" was a very promising sentence that seemed like a hundred words of a novel for all of us. But his talking was not a sign that Clairvoyance was really true. It was a sign that miracles can happen.
So still I did not believe in paranormal occurrences.
At least not until the sixth month of 2010. One day, after taking a bath, my twin sister suddenly said "Our Grandmother is going to die". I asked "How can you say that?" and she said "I can just feel it".
"I can just feel it" was a very impossible line from someone who did not seem to have the talent for premonition. My twin could probably heal the sick but not see through the future, I thought.
So I didn't give the idea much thought not after September when our aunt texted us that Nanay was very sick. She had cancer. Our relatives left behind some details regarding the gravity of her illness but my twin seem to have an intuition of it all. In mid October, my twin said that our Nanay would not last until early November. This made us silent for a while.
It was still hard to believe what my twin was feeling. It was not normal to hear guesses about death especially to someone as special as our grandmother.
But then on November 9, Nanay died.
I don’t know if it was the fact that my twin was going Clairvoyant that made my grandmother’s death the most significant event in my life this 2010 or the fact that like my nephew’s talking, my grandmother’s death was very unexpected. But what was truly expected was the unity that my family showed even until her death. Nanay always bragged to other people that her children had unity and always helped each other. And that is very true.
Thank you to Batangyagit and Jezheel for reminding us to blog about the most significant event that happened in our lives this year.
