I am not familiar with psychic abilities or psychic culture but recently came across this website and thought I'd share my story. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar.
Occasionally I seem to just 'know' things that are going to happen. Most commonly the death/miscarriage of unborn children. I never share my thoughts with others because obviously this can be a distressing and delicate subject.
The first time this occurred I was visiting my parents' church. During the service a sharing time is made available for members to share times of celebration, achievement, or prayer requests, etc. A woman went to the front of the room and excitedly told the congregation that her granddaughter was pregnant. Instantly I felt a feeling of dread, almost as if she shouldn't have told everyone. I thought to myself 'This baby is not going to be born, it's going to die.' I was instantly horrified with myself, why would such an awful thought pop into my head? The next time I visited this church around 3 months later the same women announced that her granddaughter had lost the baby and she requested prayer for her and her husband.
Most recently my partner's sister experienced two miscarriages, both of them I sensed the day before they occurred. The first time was during dinner, the thought popped into my head 'Oh, the baby is gone' and it felt as if someone had left the room. The second time, my niece (3 year old daughter of the women experiencing the miscarriages) randomly began to tell me about the baby in her friend's mother's tummy. I suddenly thought 'there's no baby in your mummy's tummy' and was overwhelmed with sadness.
This has happened on other occasions too with other people and once with the death of an infant. Each time it happens I experience the thought of what will happen coming into my mind with a feeling of dread/extreme sadness.
Many years ago I suddenly 'knew'/had a gut feeling that in my future I will have difficulty becoming pregnant, use IVF to conceive, find out I am having twins, and die during child birth at a specific age. At first this troubled me but I am now okay with it. I thought this was interesting because I've always found it difficult to imagine my life past that age.
Perhaps this is simply some kind of womanly instinct, or maybe it's nothing at all and I am just being strange, I really don't know. But I am interested to see if anyone knows of others who have had similar experiences.
