16 People Who Have Had Creepy, Weird Experiences Using the Randonautica App

There have been a few fads that have risen in popularity since the world went into quarantine. One of those things is the Randonautica app.

Users pull it up before they go on a walk, randomly generate a coordinate, and then tell is what your “intention” is before setting out.

Somehow – for these 16 people at least – the app has seemed to have an eerie ability to fulfill those intentions.

16. What a tragic loss.

But the app turned it into love.

“First-timer here. I manifested the word ‘love’ and got sent to this side entry of a cemetery.

This is where my younger brother is buried, who passed away two and a half years ago. Absolute chills and thankful for the trip.”


15. That’s definitely something red.

No arguing that one.

“It was my first time Randonauting. I wasn’t taking it too seriously, so I just manifested seeing something ‘red’ and the coordinates led me here, to this.

So yeah, I really can’t explain this one. Insane experience.”


14. Any tree is a good tree.

I’m just saying.

“I set my intent to ‘something positive’ and it sent me to this infinity-shaped fallen tree.”


13. It led him right to his new best friend.

You love to see it.

“I went Randonauting and set my intent as ‘dog.’ I found a stray dog and took him home!”


12. We’re only moving forward here.

Very good advice, app.

“My intent was for a sign on how to deal with an ex who came back into my life this week.”


11. It’s like they were looking out for her.

I’m glad that someone was!

“I have an eating disorder. I spoke to my doctor about seeking treatment to win this battle. He recommended a clinic. Later that day, our coordinates led us to a McDonald’s. I went in to pee and as I was peeing I put a reminder on my phone to call the clinic. I exited the bathroom and this poster was right in front of me.”

“ANEB is a Quebec nonprofit organization that helps connect people struggling with EDs to clinics, and they also have their own helpline. This is exactly the resource my doctor recommended to me earlier that day. At the top right it says ‘bigorexia is being stuck in excessive exercising.'”


10. A treasure indeed.

I hope they gave her a good home.

“My girlfriend and I asked for treasure. Found this guy in a small patch of trees in the middle of the city!”


9. This must have felt so good.

Ravens are amazing either way.

“I asked for anything to do with my best friend who died by suicide two years ago, and I saw a raven. It dropped a feather.

She had said if she were to have a spirit animal it would be a raven.”


8. This is a very cool picture.

That’s a blessing in itself.

“Our intention was ‘something out of the ordinary.’

It took us to the middle of a forest and right when we got to the point a huge plane flew over us.

I love this.”


7. I honestly have no idea.

Anyone else?

“My intent was ‘alien.’ Does anyone know what these symbols mean?”


6. That’s a bit morbid.

It definitely fits the bill, though.

“I set my intention to ‘an ending.'”


5. As long as it works for you.

This one he definitely ascribed himself, but it’s still cool.

“My intent was to get direction in my current search for a new job.

I was sent to a pond, and at the exact spot, I saw a black turtle.

I think the symbolism here was ‘slow and steady wins the race.’

As an impatient person, that really spoke to me!”


4. I would like to know more.

Seriously, bring on the spooky stuff.

“My intention was ‘scary.’ It took me to the middle of nowhere on a dirt road.

I then pulled up to this old abandoned mansion where ‘religious retreats’ apparently happen.”


3. I can almost feel her relief.

This is very lovely.

“My intent was closure. I came across a field of my sister’s (who has passed) birth flowers.

I’ve never seen these in real life and have them tattooed on me! I felt at peace.”


2. The app was having a very literal day.

You’ve gotta give it a tip of the hat.

“My intention was happiness and it brought me to this grave.

Her name was ‘Joy.'”


1. Does it also allow you to time travel?

I believe that’s what’s known as an icebox.

“I didn’t think this app was legit.

Then I manifested a fridge and… WTF.”


Spooky, don’t you think? Sometimes we see things that we want to see, but some of these definitely seem like more than that…
