How Can I Control My Visions?


I have what I suppose one would call "visions". By this I mean out of nowhere a random, off the wall thought will pass through my mind in just a second, then leave. This thought will consist of a single simple sentence and a picture of those involved. The pictures are never sad or upsetting, but the thoughts are. Within twenty-four hours my vision becomes reality. These occurred a handful of times as a preteen and teen, then they went away for almost ten years, and now I am getting them again.

When I was younger, my experiences related mostly to animals. One experience occurred when I was looking out the window at my father's house one evening. I saw the neighbor's dog and simply thought, "I will never see that dog again." with a picture of the dog running through the yard. It was hit by a car and died the following morning.

Another vision happened when I was sitting at the kitchen table at my dad's house. The thought, "There will be one less cat when I go home (to my mother's house)." with a picture of my three cats. The next day my Mom called and informed me that one of our cats had passed. These freaked me out a little, but they were never terrifying to me.

Between then and now I have frequently gotten what I call "heartaches", which is what they feel like. But with these feelings I also get the feeling of panic that something terrible has happened. When these occur I call my immediate family to make sure that everything is fine, and it's usually not. Often my mother is in the hospital for heart problems or my grandfather or grandmother has went to the hospital for some health problem, and when it's not them it's the family of someone I'm close to.

My most recent experience is what has brought me here. This past week I had a vision, the thought, "Irene (my Stepmother) has cancer." with the picture of her and my father at their new home. I told my husband about the experience and called my father a few hours later just to see how they were doing. I never asked about their health, but towards the end of the conversation he went over their schedule for the week which included a trip to the doctor to get a re-examination. I asked what for and he told me that the doctor thought he found something in her mammogram. A test that I had no idea she had recently gotten.

Now, I am convinced that she has cancer, we are waiting on the results which should be in later this week. I don't know why I have these visions, where they come from, or how to control them. They are getting very personal and scary, and I want to know what to do with them. My mother and husband believe my intuitions and are also alarmed by them. Where do I go from here?

I know how you feel I started having visions to and I to have heartaches. My visions are never wrong. I had a vision one time about a friend and in my vision he said something to me asking me a question and the next day he asked me the same thing. I've had other experiences as well but some of my visions are helpful. I also get the felling that something bad is going to happen to a friend a family member or me or I get a vision of it It can be pretty starry.

I have something similar but not so much. Instead of it taking days ahead of time for my visions to come. My visions come, right before they actually happen. So I can change them, and I usually do because my visions usually come with a negative outcome. I mean, I see what happens. Very clearly. I see, hear and feel what happens. I also get this like... Heartache feeling. It doesn't feel good at all. I can also feel what someone is thinking, feeling and what is about to happen without the vision. It's only recently been getting like this, with the visions. At first it was deja vu, it happened right when the thing was happening. Now it's happening right before. I'm 21 years old, and this has never happened when I was younger, a kid or in my teens. I am still searching for help myself.:/

hey, I'm new to this 😳. My experiences sometimes happen in my dreams but they happen randomly when I'm awake to.

the same thing happens to me sometimes. Like once, I was sitting in the cafeteria at school, and I put my head down and closed my eyes, and in my head, I saw someone walking by and dropping something from their tray. Then I looked up, and someone walked by, and their chips fell off their tray. It was really freaky! 😨

The way my visions work are when, I go to sleep and I dream the vision and I forget it by the time I'm awake. Then my vision comes true later during the day and I get that deja vu feeling. The vision pops in my head while it's actually happening and that's about it. Or I'll think is was just a dream and it turns out to be a vision.

Hi, I used to freak out about this too. Listen: I have many friends that are psychic like me, and my friend has given me advice that really helps. Everything that goes on in your mind is CONTROLLABLE. You choose what comes into your mind. It's called the Law of Attraction (you can search it up. It's too much to fit into this comment box.) I've been blocking out visions and distracting my mind with very in-the-moment things and my visions haven't come in a while. At least not lifechanging scary ones.:) I hope this helps you. Good luck! Message me if you have more questions.

I'm almost the same way. Like instead of thinking the problem, I picture it. Like one time I "saw" my friends little sister slipping on the side of the pool and having a bloody nose... Then it happened. I'm still young, a teenager so its freaking me out

OMG! I do that too but with people, not always with visions my vision are usually normal 😁 but the last time I see someone close to me before they die I think "this might be the last time I will ever see them, so I better hug them" like what most people think when their friend is going on a long trip, but I never hug them for some reason like I'm scared or something and before I see them again they die. As for visions I've only been able to make 1 happen when I wanted to once. And it wasn't exactly what I was trying to see but pretty close. For that I just visualized where I wanted to see and had a loose thought of about 3 months in the future plus concentrated 😐, however try not to be afraid, think of your foresight as a way you can prepare for what's to come

OMG I am the same exact way! I remember when I was nine I was going on vacation and so we left our dog at my Aunt's. I recall thinking "He'll be gone forever." and I was immediately angry an myself for the thought. Later my dog had managed to open the front door and got out.
There wasn't a fence and we never found him (/3
I still have visions a lot today.
Hopefully together we can control this ability =]

I was an Evangelical, charismatic Christian for many years; I even 'repented' of my psychic gifts at one point.

I no longer believe it's so important that we label where these things come from. I remember years ago asking God to stop the visions which were unable to help anyone, protecting myself with Christian rituals. Now I meditate and have candles around me at certain times.

Personally it seems to have a lot to do with relaxing. There is little point in having knowledge which can't help anybody and which worries us, so perhaps you need to address it (?out loud?) and be firm about not wanting anything which is of no use.

Otherwise I would say you are given this information so you can pray for people ahead of time. Do what feels right...

me too like random pics in my head that don't make sense until later. Still pictures or a pic of paper with something on it in cursive but can only remember a few of the words. 😕

controlling visions is very very difficult I can't but some people can. It just takes a lot of time and you have to work at it.

There's no way that you can absolutely stop this. The future is never set stone but when it's something that's already happening but you just don't 'know' it, it's going to happen. These visions are from God himself because he chose certain people to be able to save the people to some extent. The only thing I can tell you that you can do about your stepmother is to tell her to get surgery as soon as possible.

Coincidently, I used to be a divinity student, but have been struggling with Christian beliefs for the past couple years. These visions seem to contradict what I should believe as a Christian. According to my past beliefs the visions should be thought of as being from God, I just don't think I can believe that. I am unsure of whether I want to control the visions so as to not have them or to be able to see more.

mrsgoade... Well to control them is tough but not impossible it really depends on your spiritual beliefs... Its not the brand of religion per say but the depth of your belief... I guess I'm saying that a half hour of spiritual reflection two or three times a week does help to slow the visions down and always remember that a lot of times you will be powerless to stop what's coming or to be able to figure it all out in time to do something about it. So don't beat yourself up about not being able to help all of the time. Saying a prayer for the affected parties after a vision is a powerfull tool... Until you can better figure out what to do with the info. From the vision!
