I have had many strange occurrences happen to me. When I was eleven years old, I was left to babysit my younger sister. My mother told me my sister's friend was going to come over to play while she was gone. I got this strange stir in my stomach which always happens when I get a reading on something. I persisted to tell my mother that my sister's friend couldn't come over because my sister was going to get hurt. Of course, my mother got upset and told me not to say things like that. Thankfully my mother was home before my sister fell down and busted her chin wide open. I then was punished for jinxing her. This was the beginning of many other occurrences.
During my teenage years, I dated this guy who didn't take my predictions very lightly. We were driving down the road and I told him he better watch his speed limit because he was going to get a ticket. He told me he wasn't speeding. I still persisted to tell him he needs to watch how fast he's going. About five minutes later I told him, "Oh, by the way, be careful because you're going to get a flat tire". He just gave me a strange look.
About one half hour later he parked his truck and his tire just blew. Needless to say, he was not happy with me at all that night. He wasn't happy with me two days later either when he received two tickets driving on the way home from work.
My last prediction I had with him was not a good one. I chose not to tell him what it was. We were at the bay with two other friends when I just got this horrible feeling. I knew something bad was going to happen to him, but what, I did not know. Sorry to say, three weeks later he died at work. He was installing a sign he had built and an old woman fell asleep at the wheel and jumped a motorcycle and landed right on top of him. This was a very difficult time for me. I blamed myself for a long time for not being able to save him.
When I was in my twenties, I was dating another guy, whom I am still with. I experienced visions for the very first time in my life. I had the same vision three times in the same month. I had a strange, overwhelming feeling while I had them. Each time I was standing up and everything around me just went black. Then these pictures kept flashing before my eyes. I was seeing the same couple of pictures scroll over and over again until I finally came back to reality. I kept seeing my boyfriend's face, a car accident and then him standing next to a closed coffin. Since I had never had these before, I questioned it a lot. Is he going to have an accident or who actually dies?
I again never mentioned this to anyone because I felt if I didn't say anything maybe it won't happen. I didn't want to jinx anyone. Unfortunately, about two weeks later after my last vision an accident did occur. My boyfriend didn't have an accident, but his brother whom he was very close to did. Then my visions made more sense to me. I saw my boyfriend's face, which represented someone very close to him, an accident which did occur, and then a coffin which represented his brother being close to death. His brother was in a coma for a month. I have never had another vision again. Still today I do not understand why I haven't. It's a mystery to me.
I don't know about anyone else, but when I get a reading, that stir in my stomach drives me crazy (not literally). It's like no matter how stupid it is going to sound to someone else, I have to say it. Once I say it, the feeling goes away. For example, when I was talking to someone on the phone "Are you a trash man" entered my mind with the stir in my stomach. To get that feeling to go away, I asked the person I was talking to "What are you a trash man or something". Now really, I know that sounded totally dumb but I had to say it. Well, his response to that was not good. He said, "Are you spying on me? Where are you? How did you know I was taking out the trash"? He really thought I was spying on him. I think it really freaked him out.
My friend once coaxed me into going to her church. I went with her and that was the last time I went. The church was very small and they liked new comers to go to the front and see the pastor during the Sunday session. Well, I did and the pastor asked me if I had a gift. I in turn said, "No". He said, "Can you sing"? I said, "No". Then he looked straight into my eyes and said, "You do have a gift. You dream. You see things other people can't see". Well I was no good after that. Looking back at my friend, her jaw was about to the floor. She knew the things I could do. She told me the pastor had never said that to anyone before.
I have had many other things happen, such as, dreaming about the dead. I once described someone's funeral, down to the dress they were wearing, that I have never met before. Later on I found out that the person I dreamt about actually lived in the same house years before.
There are also times when I hear my name being called and no one is there. I thought that was normal until several people told me they never experienced that. I was in a deep sleep once and was abruptly woken up when someone yelled my name out loudly. My nine year old son and I fell asleep in my room while we were watching a movie together. Somehow he had wedged his head under my back. Still, I don't know how he did that. I know someone was warning me. The same thing happened to me again after that. I dozed off on the couch. I was awoken with "Hey". I jumped up from the shock of the loud scream. I turned to look at my son whom was coloring at the time and he asked me if I heard a man say "Hey". How weird is that. My son heard the same thing I did. Does anyone have any explanations for that?
These are a few of the things that have happened to me. I don't understand it all. I have never understood how to control what I do. I wish I did. It just happens when it does. I now accept these abilities and wish to increase them. Through the years, after some research, I have learned not to blame myself for things that have happened. I now understand these things are going to happen regardless of my predictions.
