A 34-year-old Romanian woman is claiming to have a selfie from her dead grandmother saved on her phone, Metro UK reports. “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,” the woman, Gina Mihai said.

After receiving the selfie (click here to see it), Mihai took it to a fortune teller to be analyzed. Not surprisingly, the fortune teller told Mihai her grandmother is trying to reach her from the other side. “[She said] the snake around her neck was a symbol of the fact that she was being punished in the other life for some sin,” Mihai tells Metro UK.

Mihai’s grandmother’s selfie made national news in Romania and now the churches are packed with people who are terrified and wondering what this means. One belief is that the grandmother is asking for people to save her soul through prayers. Mihai is worried she’s to blame for her grandmother’s troubled soul because she failed to uphold the Romanian tradition of bringing food to the graveyard after one dies.
