Real Psychic Experiences

A Story Of Precognition And A Search For Insight


I am 29 now but since I can remember I've had, what seems to be, future sight while dreaming. I've only had small ones lately where its just a feeling of seeing, hearing and saying something the exact same way as something else from memory. I would just shrug these off as strange brain malfunctions but something happened when I was 18 that changed my life.

As of late I have been so wrapped up in other things and been filled with cynicism about the world. Then I think back to this experience and it reminds me that there is a lot more to life than what is commonly believed. I was in my final year of high school and I had at typical strange dream right before I woke up for the day. I was walking down a dark hall with white string lights placed along its length. At the end was my current math teacher. He greeted me and took my hand and wrote the symbol for absolute power of "x" on the back of it. This |x| for those not sure. He then wrote another math symbol on the hand of someone next to me. I walked away and that is when I woke up. I chalked it up to another strange dream and went on with life. Around three months later was prom night. The dance was held in a tall building downtown. My girlfriend and I get off the elevator and enter a dark hall with white string lights along it. Something seems off but my nerves were already causing weird feelings. At the end of the hall there was my math teacher waiting at a table. He was in charge of marking students who gave him their tickets so they can come and go as they like. He greeted me, took my ticket, then my hand and wrote the same symbol as in my dream. At that point there was no doubt or reason to shrug it off like other times. I stood there stunned and looking at my hand and became more stunned as he went on to write the same symbol on my girlfriends hand. Both my teacher and girlfriend were concerned when I just stood there dumbfounded. I walked on shakily and told her what happened. Not sure if she believed me but for her sake I went on with prom normally. Another coincidence was during after-prom. It was nothing precognitive but my school happened to hire a psychic for entertainment. Needless to say I was listening very hard to what he had to say.

Like I said, since then I have only had small ones with no clear evidence and the experience went to the back burner. I've always regretted not looking further into it than I did soon after it happened. It was probably because it excited me but also depressed me in a way. To me it meant that my future is already written out and I'm a big believer on choosing your own destiny. I read some other posts online about how dreams are blueprints of your future and anything you see is probable but can still be changed. I hope that's true.

I have experienced other paranormal things but I can put those in another post. For this I'm hoping for feedback or advice on how I can further explore this ability. Either that or just connect with others who are like me. Thank you

Hi, I'm 35, I have had similar experiences. When I was a kid, dreams of little things that would happen, thought they were deja vu... Noticed that I would kind of know what I was going to be asked in tests. I always felt different, couldn't find my own personality as I was growing up. Have always been very good at manipulation, to the point that I thought I was crazy, bipolar? Sociopath personality? But noticed that I am actually very empathic with people and some emotions, which would go against those diagnoses. Some of my coworkers tell me they feel I have a sixth sense, I feel that too... Which helps me a lot in my profession. I am very confused, because I feel that my dreams have evolved into something different; now is like I get "ideas" while awake and they happen. I have many examples.

I agree, absolutely feel that I can't talk about this with anyone... People will think I'm crazy, when in reality, I'm a very functional member of the community with a decent job and a family.

I get precognitive dreams too. You're not alone and mine can be as small as a conversation I'm going to have in a few days to as big as something like the Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared over the ocean. If you would like to discuss this further or ask me any questions about it, I would be happy to help you. My email is on my profile and I'm more likely to respond on that as I check this site infrequently.

Thank you Anne for the quick and helpful reply. I think your article is what lead me to this site when I was looking into it and it did ring true for my experiences. Especially the part about deeply personal events having larger vibrations and therefore more easily seen. My story was about prom which was more of a big deal for my girlfriend at the time but was still a big day in a highschooler's life.

Another one that stood out to me was when I was sparring with friends with boxing gloves and I got my first solid punch to my head. The image I saw after my head was jerked to the side made me freeze the same way. That may not be significant to others but having watched action movies I always wondered how I would take a hit. It still wasn't a big one like prom but like you said it was deeply personal.

I also took notice of where I was and what was happening when I had other small ones. They all seemed to happen in situations that were new or unique. Vacations or special events for instance.

I would like to explore it further. I am skeptical by nature until I have proof of my own so when prom happened it opened a flood gate of possibilities of what can be possible and was probably overwhelming at the time. I feel I'm ready now and I hope it can help explain other things as well. Such as lucid dreaming, encountering a sinister entity while asleep and seeing spirits while awake.

My research also led me to discover what an empath is and that I match the signs of being one by about 95%. Are all these things related?

Sorry about the long reply. I haven't really had anyone to talk to about this so thank you for your time.

I wrote an article under the Articles about the future, if you're interested ( I think futures are probable and if we stay the course, it will be what it will be, but that we also have choice should we get a glimpse of it, understand it, and wish to change the path.

How great that you're looking deeper into your own experiences. We all have some psychic ability because we are all spirit. We can either chose to look at it as an interesting anomaly (or ability, depending on your views) to the human experience. You can continue reflecting on it, or you can take it to the next level based on your desires. It's pretty much 'how far down the rabbit hole' does one ever wish to go? There are other articles that give you tips on developing this.

The world is disheartening in so many ways. To me, that's even more reason to develop my ability and help my fellow person because when it's all said and done, the most important thing we do is to take care of one another and also this planet (more so than accumulating things or slaving to the ego, per se). The other carrot for developing yourself is that despite losing everything else upon death, we do take our developed selves with us into the beyond.

Thanks for sharing your story and I wish you the best on developing your skill set in this area.
