I'd had an awareness of my claircognizance, but it had never been about anything that important. Where people would be and when.
But last year my brother and I were in a school play, and our Great Aunt and Great Uncle were coming to visit. They live across the state so we don't often see them. Despite this, we are very close to them.
They came and saw our show. At the end of their visit we went and hugged them goodbye. I hugged my Aunt and then hugged my Uncle. When I hugged my Uncle I suddenly knew "This is the last time I'm going to see him."
It wasn't a morbid thought, it was something I KNEW. But even now, I doubt my abilities. So even though I knew, I didn't know how to act on that. Even if I had, what would I do in that situation? Who would believe me? And why would I tell someone that?
He was leaving. So I made sure the last thing I said to him was "I love you" and I tried to forget the feeling I had gotten. I hoped and prayed I was just paranoid. My Uncle was old, yeah, but he was in perfect health.
Months passed by. It was this past summer and I was tuning my instrument in the living room. My dad took a phone call, then hung up. He sat me down and told me my Uncle had passed away. I didn't remember my prediction at first. Not until my mother mentioned that my Aunt and Uncle had been about to visit us that week.
I blamed myself for a LONG time. Sometimes, I still do a little bit. But he died of natural causes. I'd still break down crying about it upset with the fact I KNEW he was going to die and said nothing.
But that's illogical. It's not my fault. Who would've believed me? My parents?! Ha no. My friends? Not really. And what would they do about it? What could I have done? Nothing. It was a forewarning that was meant to prepare me. To make sure my last words were "I love you". But where could I hear all of this? If not in real life, only...online. Perhaps there are situations where predictions can help in a life or death situation, but this was not one of them.
So I want to extend my gratitude to anyone who's written an article about similar experiences.
Hearing that it's not my fault? It's made the healing process so much easier. I'm going to try and make this into some sort of master post of similar stories. They comfort me, and I hope they comfort others. Knowing I'm not alone in going through this kind of situation helps me, because in my life there's no one around that I know of that has had these experiences. If anyone ever wants to talk about this kind of thing, feel free to comment or ask for my side email.
