I'm not entirely sure where to begin. I think the easiest place to start would be with my precognitive experiences. I dream things before they happen. Usually, the things I've dreamt happen anywhere from 2 months to 2 years after the dream. I've read some experiences on this site where other people have dreamt things and had it happen within 1 month or less. I'm jealous.
The earliest precognitive dream I can remember clearly was when I was a teenager. I was probably about 14 or 15. I dreamt I was at a friend's party. This wasn't a real close friend of mine. She was more like a friend of a friend. However, nearly everyone from my class and her class was invited. I remember in the dream, we were all standing around in this friend's bedroom. She had a neat bedroom (it had a loft) and we were all remarking on it. In the dream, one of the girls was trying to coax a male friend to ask another friend to dance. The girl friend wasn't a very popular sort of her girl. Her mother was an administrator at the school. She was nice and friendly but still... Not popular. Well, the guy vehemently said no. Very loud and clear. He repeated it 2 or 3 times. This is where it gets weird and why these experiences are so often hard to explain to other people. You see, in the dream, I'm the girl. I'm the unpopular girl (not that I was ever popular myself). I'm standing in this girl's position (it's like I'm her) and I hear the guy saying no. How could I not I was standing right there! It hurt my feelings, needless to say, and so I turned around and walked out of the room. As I was leaving, I clearly heard someone say, "You hurt her feelings." I remember waking from the dream with my feelings still raw and hurt from the experience. A couple of months later, (I would say about 6), this event really happened. I can still remember watching the events unfold right before my eyes. I can remember how shocked I felt that I had clearly had another person's experience and that I had dreamt it all a couple of months earlier. I told a couple of my friends but I'm not sure that they really believed me. I think they just humored me.
A couple of years later, I would dream of my brother's death. Unfortunately, I thought the dream was predicting my own experience. I can clearly remember the car accident in the dream but what is most vivid is walking into heaven (I don't really believe in a Heaven or at least not in the Christian sense). I can even remember being greeted by my brother's name (which should have been a clue right there). As it happens, I didn't realize the significance of this dream until it was too late. I wish I had been able to prevent my brother's death. I can't understand why I would have these dreams if not to prevent them or change them in some way. Perhaps I have these dreams so that I may simply be able to give others (and myself) insight and comfort. Who knows?
These type of experiences would happen off and on for over the next 10 years. In my twenties they would happen maybe a couple of times a year. I would go for dry spells with no kind of precognitive dreams until suddenly they would just start happening again. I'm 31 now and the precognitive dreams still happen. I have no idea why. As I am writing this, I am to the point where everyday something has happened that I have already dreamt before. In other words, I dreamt my life in advance for up to 2 years. Does that make sense? I dreamt my life 2 years ahead of time. Probably more the way things are going.
Here's where it gets even weirder. I'm starting to have out-of-body experiences. Maybe I've been having out-of-body experiences my whole life and I am only just now realizing it. Perhaps they weren't out-of-body experiences at all. I honestly can't figure this next part out. I'll give two examples (mostly because these two are the most vivid and, thus, easy to remember). I dreamt I was on the show "Ghosthunters." In one episode, I was following everyone around on a ship in California. I saw a WWII-era guy crouching and talking into something (or perhaps he was talking to someone. I couldn't understand what he was doing). I don't know why but all of a sudden in that moment I realized this was real! I said "Uh-Oh" very loud and clear and backed out of the experience. When I woke up, I thought to myself what a crazy dream I had had and naturally dismissed it.
A couple of nights later, I dreamt again I was on the show. This time the show was at a fort. I'm in the dungeon and I see a man with pale skin and white hair. He tells me "You don't belong here." I get scared and so I leave the dungeon and decide to go somewhere else in the fort (I'm skipping some details here because this could get very long). After a while, I decide to go back to the dungeon (more like prison). I decide to test myself and see if this is all real or not. So, I pull on one of the guy's shirt. I pull his collar. He's wearing a hoodie jacket, if I remember correctly. I do this 3 times. Every time, he clearly reacts. After the third time, I was going to pull another guy's hat off his head and wave it around in the air. I didn't because at the moment someone mentioned turning their camera in my direction and I got scared they would be able to see me. I don't know why I got scared but I did. I woke up thinking again what a weird dream I had had and dismissed it. Fast-forward a couple of months, maybe even a year, later and the episodes, with my voice and then with my collar-pulling antics, air on TV.
I don't have any proof that these experiences happened except for my own word. Honestly, I don't expect that too many people will believe me. That's fine. I'm not looking to prove that these experiences were real. They were real to me and that's enough for me. I'm fortunate in that I have a pretty supportive and open-minded family. What I am wondering is does anyone have any clue as to how to control this whatever you call it and make it, them, happen on purpose? I've been reading about Empaths and I've been reading other Empath's experiences. I'm pretty sure my experiences must tie in to my empathic ability because one thing I am sure of is that I am an Empath. (I think most psychics are). I'd like to be able to dream things and it happen 2 days later or even 2 weeks later instead of a month or years later. I'd like to be able to have an out-of-body experience on purpose.
