A few weeks ago, I had a strange experience, and I believe I saw the future. Well, I didn't see anything, but I did have a very strong sense of foreboding, and I knew something bad was going to happen to a close friend of mine. When I talked to her about it, she said that she wouldn't have believed me if it weren't for the fact that she herself had been on edge lately, with the same sense of danger. Now that I'd warned her, she stayed alert for the next week or so, and eventually the danger passed; I could feel exactly when it was over. Nothing ever did happen, so I guess I don't have any real evidence for this case, but I believe that my warning prevented whatever that event would have been.
After this happened, I told my mom about it, because I'm not stupid (unlike some teenagers). To my surprise, she explained that psychic ablilities run in my family. My aunt, uncle, grandmother, and mother all have the ability to see the future, though from what I was told their visions are much stronger than mine. Once my aunt told my mom that she'd seen her get hit by a green sports car, and a few weeks later she was nearly hit by a green sports car, but she'd been on the lookout so she wasn't hurt. Also, my grandmother, aunt, and uncle can all see ghosts. There was a ghost who lived in the house where my mom grew up, the ghost of the previous owner of the house, and he was always re-arranging the kitchen when my grandmother wasn't looking. On my great-grandfather's farm, there was a ghost named Alphonso who was always pulling pranks on everyone in the house. I think I saw him once, when I was very young, though the memory is too hazy for me to be sure.
Hence why I have reason to believe that I, too, have a form of precognition. After this event, I began remembering times when I had other psychic experiences; in fact many have happened since then. Most commonly, I'll experience a heightened form of dejavu, which my mom calls 'premembering' in which I remember an event happening as I see it. I can change it though, which makes things really trippy as I watch one version play out in my mind, and a different one in reality. Also, sometimes when my mind is quiet, usually at night, I can hear the voices of people I know saying my name. I don't ever hear anything else, but I hear the voices clearly, and know they're thinking of me.
I have a lot of questions after all of this, obviously, and I hope to find answers here. Is it common for psychic abilities to be linked to a family line? What should I do if something like this happens again, but I'm unable to warn anyone? Can I learn to improve my abilities, so I won't be blindsided by the future?
I hope I can find answers here.
