I am a 25 year old second year medical student. I was just watching a lecture 30 minutes ago on my laptop when my "psychic" experience occurred again. I quickly googled psychic and found this site. I use quotations because it is a weird event, and psychic is the closest that I can come to describing it.
One of my professors was giving his lecture today about bone diseases. And in his lecture he made a reference to an ex football running back, Bo Jackson. This may seem insignificant but just an hour earlier that name, and his image flashed in and out of my head. I don't know why it did, I was not thinking about football, or gruesome injuries for that matter. It was at that point where I paused the lecture, got up and had to go outside to get a breath of fresh air because this was not the first time.
This ability, for lack of better words, seems very useless. But it occurs so often that I have to pay attention to it and acknowledge that it happens. I am in medical school now, I watch little to no television if any, anymore. Before coming here I was studying to get into med-school, so I was barely watching television or anything then. But I often get images and scenes of movies or specific episodes of television series that randomly gets projected in my head at the blink of an eye and then goes away. And out of the 30-45 minutes of television that I do end up watching per week, it ends up being the exact same scene of the movie or television show that someone changes the channel to randomly.
This has been happening for the past couple of years. At first I thought it was a coincidence, but the consistency of this has led me to believe that I am either crazy, psychic, have a small brain tumor somewhere, or my mind is playing tricks with me. This has happened often with the television programs and movies within the past two years. They're generally movies and programs that I have seen before, a long time ago. But what is concerning me now is how often it is happening now and also it has crossed over to things that I haven't seen before like lecture's and news broadcasts.
A great example is the late Michael Crichton. I believe I woke up a little later than I planned to and I was watching ER, I watched it until the ending credits, and I would always see his name, but this time it stood out for some reason, I paid no attention to it. A week and I half later, I'm in the line at a bank and CNN is on (I never watch news), and it had the breaking news that Michael Crichton passed away from cancer--author of Jurassic Park and ER executive producer.
There also had been another instance where I was thinking about a specific condition called "Dupuytren's Contracture" randomly for a week, and the week after I was randomly looking at a specific upload about controversy of 9/11 and secret organizations (I can't remember why I was looking at it), and the video made a reference about the leaders of the world generally being afflicted by an inherited condition called "Dupuytren's Contracture". Needless to say I was immediately terrified and stopped the video. I calmed down and attributed it to being a coincidence. But now a days I'm not so sure anymore of what to think.
I just hope someone can tell me something about this, and about how and why I'm able to do this. Sometimes I sometimes imagine that it is a future me sending me clues from the future about something I need to do. But that is crazy, right?
