I've always seen myself to be a fairly scientific person but I've also been fairly open minded towards the idea of psychic powers. I'm not sure if I truly believe in the idea that someone can summon these powers at will, but from my own experiences, I really do think it is possible to see events in the future.
Anyway, my name is Mel and I'm 18 years old. I don't think of myself as a particularly intuitive person (in fact, every time I follow my intuition I find that I end up worse off). As far as I know, percieving the 'future' does not particularly run in my family, though my mother says that she once had an out-of-body experience when she was young (she saw herself looking up at a chandelier and watching it fall. It happened a few seconds late). This is the only experience she has ever relayed to me though, and I am unsure about whether this is a one time thing or not.
As for me, I've had two experiences that I am 100% sure have been genuine precognitive events and about a hundred feelings of Deja Vu of situations I strongly feel I've been in before, yet I can't really recall if it's my imagination or not.
The one thing I've learned from my two definite experiences was that, unlike my mother, I don't see things just before they happen. In fact, my first psychic experience took four years to come 'true'.
I was about 8 years old (I don't remember my exact age at the time) when I had a pleasant dream about a trip to what looked like some sort of museum. It was lunch time and I was sitting at a table in a cafeteria that opened out into a much larger room that had a lifesize portion of a space rocket hanging from the cieling. In front of me was my lunch, a salad, and to my left was a colorful stand that sold ice cream (dipping dots). I remembered waking up from this dream thinking that it was such a nice thing to dream about. At the time, I was obsessed with space travel and I really wanted to be an astronaut, so the dream stayed with me in my memory.
Fast forward four years. I was twelve years old and my family had taken a trip to Florida. While down south, my parents decided to take us to the Kennedy Space Museum. We had a wonderful time and then came lunch-
I recalled the dream from about four years earlier the minute I sat down with my salad and saw the exact same setup- My lunch in front of me, the ice cream stand to the left, and the giant space rocket hanging from the cieling of the large room. I even made a point of asking my mother if we had ever been here before, to which her answer was, "No, why?"
It was a bit of a creepy feeling and at the time I didn't know what to make of it. It was the only concrete feeling of Deja Vu I had for the longest time until came my graduation from High School and we arrived at the hall, situated on top of a large hill that crowns the city I live in. Again, I was hit with the feeling that I had seen this before, and I recalled a dream I had had some months previous. The view and the building itself- the ceremony had not been included in the dream, but what had been was the awkward encounter with my ex's family just as we were leaving the hall to head to the restaurant.
I honestly don't know what to make of these two very real experiences, but if I could and if it's possible, I would like to learn how to develop this 'power', for lack of a better word.
I've had a few other noteworthy experiences-
Though this is completely unrelated to the topic of seeing the future, I sometimes hear voices in the night (the first of which gave birth to the odd way in which I sleep; covers drawn up and over my ears). They never really say anything. Once (I was quite awake for this one) I heard something like a little girl giggling. Just recently (two nights ago) I could have sworn I head a voice (It sounded like a woman) saying something, followed by the voice growing louder and seemingly calling my name (I'm sure I was pretty awake at that point too). Again, being fairly scientific, I'm a little more sceptical about the 'voices' than I am of my previous experiences.
And lastly, an odd experience I had one morning while waking up. I was more or less in that transition stage between awake and up and about. While lying awake in bed, I felt as if something was suddenly pressing down on me. The only way I can describe it is like a giant ball bouncing right on me. The 'pressure' was gone, and then suddenly back, pushing down harder than before, then gone and then pressing down, and with each 'press' the pressure increased to the point where I thought I was going to be crushed. I couldn't move at all during this point, though I tried and it was only once I finally managed to move, that it stopped.
Anyway, these are my experiences. Thank you for taking the time to read.
