I just want to start out by saying this could all be coincidence, and maybe I'm just jumping to conclusions. But sometimes weird stuff happens to me, and I'm trying to get to the bottom of it.
It started sometime when I was a kid. That's when I started noticing it anyway. I remember being so young I wasn't even in Kindergarten yet, and strange things were happening to me. For example, I would be playing with my Barbies or watching a movie, when suddenly a type of food would pop into my mind. I wouldn't form any opinion on it; it wasn't a craving or anything like that. It was just an image in my mind of a snack or meal. Then, within minutes or sometimes even seconds, my mother would tell me that's what we were having for dinner.
For years and years this kind of thing happened to me. I didn't ever tell anyone, because I was afraid they would think I was lying. It started to become so normal for me, I didn't even think about it half of the time. Plus, I was still pretty young.
When I was 5 years old my mom was pregnant. My dad and I bet on the gender of the baby. I knew it was a girl. I couldn't explain how I knew, but I remember being so completely 150% sure that baby was a girl. And what do you know, a few months later I had a little sister.
Okay, fast forward to present day. I've started to notice that the little things that I "just know", other people don't. Most of the time it's like the situations I described above, where I get an image of something in my head or something/someone will pass through my mind, then soon after the events transpire.
Recently a new thing has been occuring, which could be completely coincidence, but it happens so extremely often that I've been wondering. Several times in the past month, my fiance and I have been spending time together, relaxing, when all of a sudden something will pop up in my mind. It's ALWAYS out of nowhere. It's always a random thought. And I'll bring up the thought to him, and he'll say, "Wow! I was literally just thinking the same exact thing!"
Then I found this website, and I started reading some of your stories. From what I've read, there are other people with similar things going on. I read one article talking about how if you meditate, particularly before bed, you will be able to control your abilities better. I started trying that, and I was able to predict a football game correctly. I haven't tried to predict anything else, I've just been meditating to relax my mind before bed.
If anyone has any advice or opinions they'd like to share, I would love to hear it. I'm very lost right now, and just trying to figure out if all of these experiences have been coincidence or not. Thank you!
