Advice Needed on Precognition


Hi. There has been something very odd happening to me the last few months. I have been having these thoughts and dreams about things that are coming true. There have been 3 incidences of the thoughts and approximately 8 of the dreams.

It seems the thoughts just come out of nowhere or are triggered by something I see or hear and they are of more consequence than the things that come to me in the dreams. One example would be the thought for about two weeks straight before it happened that a bridge somewhere here in the US was going to collapse.

The dreams seem to be of lesser consequence such as dreaming of a cat falling a far distance out a high rise window and surviving and then seeing it on the news the next day. I have rarely remembered my dreams in the past but now sometimes I wake up with this strong vision of the dream in my head and those are the dreams that become true. The dreams are a collection of unrelated issues that in the overview of life are pretty insignificant. They do not come from another influence such as hearing something when I'm tired or half asleep. I live alone, I don't go to sleep with the TV on and the only radio I use is in my car.

I'm 51 years old and except for one or two experiences in the past that I would possibly call just pure coincidences I have had nothing like this happen before. An instance of the past would be being somewhere where I've unexpectedly began thinking of an old friend I haven't seen in a few years and suddenly they walk in the door.

That being said there is something else that I've been doing, that I've never told anyone about before, that may or may not sound odd to some. I'm not sure how odd it will sound because I am very unaware of anything about psychics or what is possible or done in general. I'm hoping no one will take me less than serious by telling you about it. For many years when I've wondered about some outcomes of things in my personal life I have taken three quarters and assigned one outcome to heads and one outcome to tails and then spun the quarters by holding them and flicking them with my finger. The 2 out of 3 or 3 out of 3 outcome of the quarters has never been wrong. I don't randomly spin quarters for every outcome in my life because there are only certain things that something internal tells me I can. I know some would say that because I've already predetermined the outcome in my brain that I subconsciously or consciously move towards that end but I don't think that is the case.

I have to say I'm a little unsettled by all this and I guess I'm looking for an answer or advice or maybe a way to test if it is something real or is it all just extraordinary coincidence. I would like some feedback from someone who may be in the know. Please don't take this wrong but you have to understand that this is all very new to me, I'm not well versed in this type of thing and my understanding or knowledge is very limited so please have a basis for anything you may tell me.

If this has any bearing the past year and a 1/2 has been hard for me because I've had some devastating things happen in my personal life that have taken a great toll. I won't go into detail about that here unless someone feels the circumstances may help to explain what's happening.

I've created a yahoo ID to use that isn't my name for protection of privacy. I do appreciate any feedback and I will get back to anyone offering advice that requires a response but I would prefer for the comments to be posted online.

Thank you

Hi Rick
Hard times help bring this ability out in many people Because When things are going well we think we have life figured out... The ego is in controll and we trust it completely to rationalise and sort all our thoughts out into nice little EGO catagories... But when things get shaky we Question a lot of information and we don't trust our processes as much...
Thats when the uncouncious that knows everything can break through to you and give you information you would never know by just intelect...
having said that your experience is normal and if you really want to get comfortable with it take a remote Viewing Course... You'll learn its quit normall and you'll be able to put it to good use to improve your life...

I just wanted to say that the same things have been happening to me over the last few months (mostly dreams) and I find it puzzling as well. I have no advice but wanted you to know that you are not alone and you are NOT crazy :)

Dear Rick,

Pardon, I published before last edit, so to reiterate as follows:

There are many such divining tools (divining rods, pendulums, tarot cards, astrology, palm reading, reading of tea leaves, etc., etc., etc.), but ultimately the spiritual conduit is ultimately "you".

Please do stay away from Ouija boards though, as they are meant for the more skilled.

Again, Best Wishes, Abby

Dear Rick,

The best way to start finding out about a subject you do not know about is to first do your own homework and investigative research.

You have started your journey here, but you can also go to all the articles, stories and comments on this site and the two other sister sites. You can then go to the internet and google answers, suggestions or solutions to your paranormal questions. You can also search and research various type of paranormal groups in your local area. The net may help you there, as well as the yellow pages, local paper, natural food store, herbal shop, and so forth, as well as the best resource, word of mouth. Other good resources are also your local library and bookstores. The answers will come the more you do your own homework.

You may wish to keep a daily journal of your journey and add notations as things happen or come true. You may also wish to keep a taped or video recorded record of your journey. You may want to find trusted friends and share your thoughts and predictions with them. This provides not only support, but also confirmation that what you are experiencing is real for you. The more you trust yourself and your abilities, the less you will have self doubt in your abilities.

The more skeptically open and observant you are while still using your common sense, the more and more the information will literally fall into your hands. I have actually had books fall off a shelf or complete strangers come up to me with the answer, suggestion or solution I was looking for. Just be patient and non-judgmental about your journey. Let it happen and take each day at a time as you do with your own daily physical life and reality, so should you do with your spiritual and paranormal life. Try to find ways not to divide things up, but instead to incorporate everything as one within your learning and within your spiritual being. Remember, always keep your common sense and always ask questions if you are curious or skeptical. After all is said and done let the final person be you who decides what to perceive based on your own homework and belief system. The more you know who you are the more the rest of the pieces will fall into place, whether regular life or paranormal life. To me, there is no difference or labels for each and every thing. I just meld it, mold it and keep up my balancing act on a day to day basis. Let your spirit be your guide and allow it to take you where you wish to go without harsh judgment, expectation or beating yourself up with self-doubt.

As for your quarters, they are divining tools and guides, as are rituals to help you find out who you are as a spiritual being and to reconnect you with your abilities. There are many such tools (diving rods, pendulums, taro cards, astrology, palm reading, reading of tea leaves, etc., etc., etc.), but ultimately the spiritual conduit is ultimately "you".

Best Wishes on your Spiritual journey--Abby

Thank you everyone for the advice. When I first wrote I was at the point where my fingers were literally beginning to shake. It’s good to know that people have had similar experiences and that also you understand what I really didn’t come out and say and that was I was scared. . Since I’ve written about it nothing else has happened. I haven’t had strong thoughts of something going to happen nor have I woke up with vivid dreams but then again it’s been less than a week.

I really have mixed feeling on this. After the thoughts and dreams becoming true started to add up I felt I didn’t like it, didn’t want it and shouldn’t have it. I think I’m afraid that I’ll think or dream something tragic and be somewhat responsible when I can’t stop it. On the other hand I’m thinking if God for whatever reason decided I should have this who am I to refuse it. Trust me I know that not all would see it with religious overtones and believe me I’m not a religious fanatic but this in a way has strengthened something I was beginning to doubt and that was the existence of God. I was putting science to the beliefs of faith and coming up with hard to answer questions but this has showed me that there are sciences unknown to man and I’m thinking they involve energy or karma or what ever other tag you might want to put on it. I mean how else could you explain some of the experience we’ve had. I’m thinking if these unforeseen, unexplainable factors that enable us to have premonitions are real then the possibility of an unforeseen, unexplainable existence of a higher power is that much more real too.

Thank you Psychic Hecate for the term precognition. I wasn’t aware of a term for the thought without the vision. If I understand correctly the dreams like when I saw the cat falling would be a premonition since there is was an image. The thoughts such as the thought of the bridge collapsing would be a precognition because I only had a strong thought but couldn’t see the bridge.

Angie 123, that was an amazing dream you shared. In one sense it was very similar to those I’ve had as too the amount of detail but to this point my dreams have not had a direct tie to me that I can see such as yours has to you and your family. Have you had ones like mine or have all your dreams had some type of direct relationship to your family? I’m kind of curious how it started for you and if I might start to see direct ties.

Fudgybunny, thank you for the advice but I still think I’m a little nervous to this at this point to relax as much as might be required to meditate. As for seeing a psychic in person, I’m still gun shy about facing anyone or telling anyone I know for that matter and I think I want to wait it out a bit to see if anything else happens. If nothing does there is still enough doubt or denial in my mind that I can chalk it up to coincidence. You know, reading what I just said to you makes me realize how much I’m at a crossroad about this. If someone had come to me and told me about a dozen events happening before they do in the last few months I would certainly believe something is going on with them but here when it’s me I’m having a hard time believing or accepting it.

Thanks again for the help and any additional input you might have.

Hi Rick,
It sounds to me like you have premonitions as well as precognition. Although it is not the regular thing for someone to have both of these gifts, it does sometimes happen that a person can have both. Having both precognition and premonition can be a little scary and cause the human mind some stress and anxiety.

This is normal for some with these two gifts which can be similiar but are different.

I have written an article on this site on precognition and premonitions, reading it may help to understand what these gifts are and how they work together.

I would be happy happy to help you with questions on this matter, anytime. My msn id is psychic_hecate [at] and my yahoo id is psychicmediumhecate [at]

Please feel free to contact me and I'm sure that I can help you with this 😁

Many Blessings

Psychic Hecate

Rick, I too have the same experiences at times, and usually when I am going through tough times personally or financially. I think it makes our mind more open to subconsciouness perhaps? I'm certainly not qualified to say absolutely, but I understand how disturbing it can be to have these thoughts or dreams and suddenly, they happen. If you share them, most people think you've lost your mind! Luckily, my husband is open to it, 'cause he's lived through it with me. One example...

I dreamed of a bear chaising my family out of a dry pond bed in the middle of a misty blue forest, with snarling tree roots serving as a way to climb out of the pond bed. I shared the dream in detail with my husband the morning after because it was so vivid. Two days later my husband was bitten by a spider. In the emergency room, I turned white as I glanced up on the wall behind him. Over his shoulder, a framed print behind the waiting room chair he was sitting in was the exact scene in my dream... A forest scene, faded blue from sunlight, snarling tree roots and all. (we had never been in this ER before so it wasn't something I could have seen and forgotten about.) In the corner of the scene was... A bear.

that same week, a bear was spotted in our neighborhood where my oldest son often played with his friends. (We live in suburban Atlanta, so it's not very common to see a bear wondering about.) I've never dreamed of a bear before or since.

So, I do understand how strange the experiences can be. 😉

Hi there.
I really think you should see a real live psychic in person. You wouldn't believe what you can tell about a person just by looking in their eyes. Anyway, in the meantime, I think you should meditate. When you meditate, you get into a position that is comfortable for you and clear your mind. Just breathe. Take long, deep, breaths from your stomach, not your chest. Inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Be calm. The surrounding area should be silent. You should be alone. Imagine that everything around you is gone. You are in a nice, warm, white, space with nothing to worry about. Then, just simply let things come to you. Think about each sense and figure out what it is that they each detect. You might smell flowers or taste peaches. It depends. Enjoy yourself. You are never alone. I tend to think that using crystals helps, but some others do not. It's up to you. Good luck :)
