I just want to preface this article by writing that while I, personally, believe in psychic phenomena, I completely understand and respect that A LOT of people don’t. So if you’re a non-believer and you’ve decided to have a browse through this article about psychic phenomena, you’re doing so at your own peril so don’t come crying to me if you get offended about the discussion of psychic phenomena in an article clearly labelled ‘PSYCHIC PHENOMENA’. Got it? Good.

A book excerpt is doing the ’rounds online where American psychic Sylvia Browne appears to maybe, kinda, sorta predict the coronavirus outbreak.

In her 2008 book End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies About the End of the World, the now-deceased mystic wrote, “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread through the globe, attacking the lungs and bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.”

Spooky, right?

But if her prediction proves to be true, then there’s light at the end of the tunnel because what happens next could save us all.

“Almost more baffling than the illness itself will be the fact that it will suddenly vanish as quickly as it arrived, attack again ten years later, and then disappear completely,” she added.

Browne, a New York Times Best-Selling author, was a popular psychic during her day, scoring regular slots on The Montel Williams Show and Larry King Live, and hosted an hour-long online radio show on Hay House Radio.

Despite making some grave errors in her predictions (I’ll let you read about those on her Wiki page), she was still widely loved and respected.

In 2007, it was reported that she had a four-year waiting list for psychic readings over the phone.

That same year, hundreds of fans reportedly joined Browne on a cruise, paying thousands of bucks for readings.

So even though she fudged several predictions, including her own death (she predicted that she’d die at 88 but she, in fact, died at 77), is there any weight to these claims?

Kim Kardashian and her sisters certainly reckon so:
