I Know Things Just Before They Happen


It started last year. It was the first day of Art, and our teacher drew names out of a box. Just as she was about to draw the next name, I knew that it would be mine. And it was.

It happened a few times after that, but mostly I would just randomly say or think something and it would happen. On day, I couldn't stop thinking about the post office. I told my best friend, "I bet the rest of the books I ordered came in today." That afternoon, Dad handed me the other three books I had ordered.

Also, I could understand what my friends were feeling - especially when I annoyed them. I used to think that I was just really good at seeing something from someone else's point of view, but now I'm not so sure. Normally I knew that I was getting on people's nerves, but it was more personal, like I actually felt that way, which made me really hyper, which made my friends even more annoyed.

I've only told one person - my best friend. I haven't been able to tell anyone else. I thought about telling Mom, but she'd think I was crazy. It seems to run in the family.

I can't help but feel like I'm forgetting something. I think I used to know weird stuff when I was little, but I can't remember for sure.

I have the same thing. Only difference is that I use it to find out things, for example when I was in high school I was walking home from school when all of a sudden I felt someone pull my hair so hard that I turned around and saw a group of girls walking behind me. The first thing that came out of my mouth was "the person that pulled my hair is about to be embarrased in front of a lot of people" I kept walking and right when we proceeded to cross the street, a girl that was walking behind me with the group of girls tripped and fell on her face and since that day nobody else messed with me and she was being teased by all her friends.

i have always felt the same way since I can remember. I can tell when a friend is getting anxious while we are on our way to do soemthing so I try to get it moving faster. I can tell where the conversation is going to go when we start talking. I have always been able to read people. And I mean that as in I can tell what kind of a person they are just from being with them for a short period of time becasue I can feel their energy and can tell what to expect from this person too. Its not a bad thing at all. Its always been pretty good for me. Except for times when a friend of mine is really excited to tell me something and I can tell exactly what its going to be before thye tell me but I still try to be excited like I don't know for them, just sometimes don't like that it happens. Its not something I can really control either and I don't know how often it happnes for you, but its always fun when you are talking to someone and use it to turn a conversation over. Like I can think of something to say and then ill know exaclty how they woudlrespond to it. It always fun. And to forsee something before it happens is really cool too. Except for times when you can't change anything and its out of your control and something bad is going to happen and you can't do anything but watch.

This happens to me pretty much on a daily basis. I'll be walking to class in school, for example, and I'll think "Wonder if I have a substitute today" and I'll open the classroom door and there will be a sub. Sometimes it happens seconds before, sometimes it's a few days, to a month. It just depends. I've only told my best friend also, but I told both of my parents. You should tell your mom, she may be a little freaked out, but she'll get over it. It's a gift, remember that:) ❤

I agree with revsilverson, you AREN'T the only one.
And I know from experiance that psychic
Ablilities sometimes run in familys.
Just be careful and have fun with it.
Me and my friends have this inside joke,
One time I told one of my friends to be
Careful on the bus and that she was going to trip. She did.
Now everytime I say goodbye to one of my two best friends I always say:
Don't trip!

I have the exact same experiences as you do! Just random, really random times, I think something and it happens. Like once in gym, they were calling out numbers, and one number, 21, it just popped into my head. Then right after that, my gym teacher called out 21.

I also feel things what others are feeling, and also, I thought that I saw the others person's point of view quite well. But one difference is that I don't seem to know when I get on people's nerves, or anything like that. If you would like to make more contact, you can email me at whoisrjunie [at]

I'm right about things sometimes too, well it's most of the time:P The whole feeling their annoyed thing, I feel what my friends need sometimes. Like I know when they need a hug (I'm not huggy so it's kind of strange) or they need a way to let out, and I let them. I don't know if that's empathy or something else, but hey your not alone:) Just learn about your gifts and yourself. Test them and see how strong you are. If your not ready to tell anyone else, don't. Just wait.
Hope I helped:)

i also feel this kind of stuff. I also feel like I can be a sponge, like I feel what other people are feeling. If someone is in pain and I'm around them, ill start feeling the pain too. Like also, I have experienced with healing people, but then ill feel their pain. Such as my mom had a migraine, so I put my hands on her head, and the energy transferred and her headache was gone, but it went to me. Can someone help me on this?

I've had very similar experiences to you. I see or sense things before they're about to happen. I used to think that it was Precognition, which is what you might be, but I know that I am a Clairaudient now. Clairaudience is basically when you hear things with your mind that others can't.
When you said that you feel like you've forgotten something that you used to know, I kind of feel the same way. I can remember going into little trances, I can't really explain it. I wonder what it was, that's all I remember.
My advice for you would be to really focus on your ability. I found that when I believe in myself is when by ability really grows stronger and I have more experiences. Also, you could read my stories "Seeing the Future" and "Rare and Unsure". I hope I helped, and let me know how it goes. Best of luck:)

it seems to run in the family? What does that mean? No offense but if there is mental instability it might have been misdiagnosed.

However your friends feeling your negative attitude is normal-- nothing exciting. My friends feel mine and even dream it!

My sense is you are empathic. But you have a negative energy about you that you create. Why is that? Fearful? So are the rest of us. Grab hold and do your best!
