Real Psychic Experiences

A Child's Premonition


I've been psychic ever since I can remember. My earliest days of childhood are filled with what the general population would consider 'unusual experiences'. My grandmother, the woman who raised me, viewed this phenomenon as completely natural. Thus, as a small child-- so did I. Then, in 1969, a psychic experience was to change my life forever.

Easter Sunday, 1969, I was 12 years old:

It had been a horrendous winter. My aunt & uncle had been snowed in for months. We were only able to have Easter dinner with them by driving a long route and coming in from the east as opposed to the more direct west route. Even then, we had to park our car on top of a hill and walk part of the way to their farmhouse, down a hill, across a small valley and up over the next hill.

It was after dinner. The women were still in the kitchen chatting. My uncle and grandfather were sitting in the living room listening to music, along with my sister and me. We were both perched on the edge of a long piano stool. I looked across the room at my Uncle, who was stretched out on the sofa, one arm behind his head. As I watched, I was startled and fascinated to see the back of the sofa suddenly swing forward and close over him. I realized that I was seeing my uncle in a coffin with the lid being closed. I shook my head and blinked my eyes to rid myself of this vision.

Later in the afternoon, he left to go outside and check the water levels in the driveway, where the melting snow was beginning to cause flooding. My sister and I were standing in the dining room window, watching him walk up to the house.

We turned away.

A second later we heard a muffled noise, and my aunt came hysterically screaming from the kitchen doorway, "Mom! Mom!"...calling my grandmother.

My Uncle had stepped into the entryway off the kitchen and collapsed.

They called for an ambulance - which came in the wrong way, the way that was still blocked with deep snow banks, and they had to turn around to come in the same way we did. They also had to walk a gurney the same path we took, across the valley. It took so long for help to get there.

My uncle died that day.

For years afterward, I thought that by seeing that vision I had caused it to happen. I spent a great many years deliberately attempting to squelch any psychic thoughts. It wasn't until I was in my late teens that I finally told my grandmother about that day and what I saw. She reassured me that what I had seen had been a premonition and had nothing to do with causing the event.

It was then that I really began to understand.

Amthyst, That is a bueatiful story, and should remind everyone that though God allows us to see the future, He does not always allow us to change it. No matter how much we plead or wrestle with Him, sometimes it is the best option for the salvation of many. It is not very comforting but find comfort that our loved ones still exist and can communicate with us if they lived their life with love, compassion and joy most will have enough karmic energy to stick around for the lifetimes of the ones who loved them.

I define myself by the connections to those I love and thus obtain immortality on this earth as long as I live in their hearts and minds, even if my spirit moves on to other jobs and experiences.

Peace, light and love to all who will receive it.

Wow, this was such a deep, emotional experience to share with us. Thank you Amythyst. I visited your website also. Quite impressive I must say, and beautiful. I can't tell you anything you don't already know. But I am sorry you felt the way you did, even for a moment. Again, thank you. ❤

Wow, that's a very interesting experience. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your uncle, though. But don't feel guilty of premonitions, its not liek you're causing them, and if you don't tell anyone, that's noone's fault either.

Your experience really made me look twice at your story as that experience was in some ways the beginning of my psychic life I had a precognitive dream about a relative who wasn't ill but I saw her die in a precognitive dream. I knew where the body would be found, what exactly she would be wearing when her body was found and what she died of and I was 4 years old at that time.

That feeling of a child that can believe that by somehow seeing something that actually happened makes the child believe they made it happen. You thought, I thought it. Many psychic children feel like that the first time they realise their not like their peers. Like your family my family didn't see anything wrong with the way I was, my abilities where treated as normally as my being left-handed was treated normally. My psychic abilities were no big deal in my family and it was a good and supportive way for a psychic child to grow up in.:)

wow... That is just so terrible! I coul donly begin to imagine how you would have felt. You are very psychic indeed. And of course it was not your fault. Being psychic can often be or feel very cruel indeed, especially when experienced like that.
Have your visions gotten bigger, more frequent?
Psychic sylvia browne experienced the same things as a child. She is famous for it now. Alas, hers were horribly graphic until she asked her spirit guide to lessen the graphic content (as suggested by 'her' psychic grandmother). You share a lot in common with her I imagine... She has many books, they are GREAT. You would love them, perhaps look into it...?

Something you should, and I hope you do, understand is that you didn't cause it and you couldn't prevent it. At the time, you obviously didn't understand what you saw and can't be held accountable for that.

Now it seems that you can embrace your gift. You're most likely not going to only see death or negative things. Who knows - one day you might see yourself stumbling across something you've been waiting for!

Embrace it because it truly is a gift. 😊
Good luck!

Wow, that is unreal. Do you still have these premonitions? I have been having similar, but nothing that involves the premonition of death. I don't know how I would handle that.
