Real Psychic Experiences

Precognition, Perception, Or Coincidence?


This is my first time with any kind of story on any kind of website, but I have so many questions, like everyone, and so little answers. I'm hoping that someone can help me understand...

My story starts here:

I'm not sure when it started, or when I really became aware that it was even happening. I can feel things, think them, and they happen or have happened. I also have very vivid dreams, but that's another story. Its not that I think any particular thought and that's what happens, but more like a random thought will pop into my head. For instance, one day just driving to work my best friends mom popped into my head and I wondered if my friend had talked to her mom recently, that maybe she should call her. An hour later, my friend called and said her mom had been in a motorcycle accident, within the same time frame as my random thought. I'm not close to my friends mom so why did I think of her? Another incidence was when my grandfather passed. No one in my family had talked to him in years (we were pretty estranged from him) and I happened to ask my mom one day if we would even know if he passed away. Three days later, we got the call that he had. Why after 3 years of not seeing him would I randomly think about him and his death?

I do have other incidents that have occurred, nothing grand, just knowing where to be at the right time, and where not to be at the wrong time. And not every thought or feeling has something awful happening after it. But the reason I even post my experiences is because of my most recent feeling. At work one day I suddenly got nauseous and dizzy. It was all I could do to focus on not getting sick or falling down. It lasted maybe three minutes, but seemed longer. Just as suddenly the nausea and dizziness gone. Not long after, I received news that a good friend had been held at gunpoint, brutally attacked, and robbed. Roughly right around the same time. It really shook me up.

My question is really, what is going on? Is it just coincidence that I have thought or felt these things and then something happens? Or is it something more on a psychic level? And if it is something more on a psychic level, how do I use this ability? How do I enhance it?

Flwrd, I haven't had time to read the other comments but I'm working on a book for people like me: empaths. It's really for my two little kids who are only 2 and 5 right now. My husband doesn't want me to talk to them about it until they are 13 at least, so I write it down for them so I can give it to them. Anyways. Check out my story and email or post comments and I'll try and answer.:)

Peace, light and love

KellyBelle- I understand exactly what you mean. Its so hurtful and frustrating knowing that you could help or prevent anything but unable to... Just try being there for them in whatever way you can, even if you say anything, the ultimate decision is really theirs.

Lilylove- thank you so much for your insight, meditation has always interested me, but I had always assumed it was just a relaxing technique, and not a way to find "guides" or to open my mind more, so I will definitely be researching more into that:) If you have any helpful tips, I'm always open for suggestions

RookDygin- you seemed to have nailed it exactly... I just wasn't sure what it was called. Its exactly like you said, everything is always as it happened "real time", never a vision of what's to come. I can't wait to check out the book you recommended:)

Thank you all so much for your words of wisdom... Its so refreshing to know there are others out there who experience the same things and that we are not crazy:) love and blessings to you all my friends

This sounds like you do have some psychic ability... But I can not say it is precognitive nor premonition in nature.

The way you described all thise incidents you felt them 'as they were happening' in a 'real time' sort of way.

I'd say that what you are experienceing is more 'Empathic' in nature...

You 'picked up' on your Friends fellings concering her mother and the motorcycle accident...

You 'picked up' on someones feeling concering the Passing of your Grandfather and in the last example...

You 'experienced' some of the intense feelings and emotions of your good friend as they were being attacked.

You may want to check out this book:

Empowered by Empathy: 25 Ways to Fly in Spirit by Rose Rosetree

It may provide more information in 'handy dandy' reference form than I can provide here quickly and easily. However please feel free to ask any questions you may have and please keep us updated.

Judging from what I have read it sounds like your having Premonition but your ability isn't that strong so your visions come in thoughts so it would seem like a coincidence but it not. Mediating very good for the mind and to grow abilites you should try mediating.

Premonition- is the ability to see the future through visions while being awake.

Precognition- is the ability to see the future through visions while being asleep.

I feel the same way sometimes... Like today!
If you know something bad is going to happen to someone later in the day how do you stop them from doing something so you can change the outcome to something good and help them. I have a sick feeling and
Need to change someone's mind about doing something and I know if I say anything they will think I'm crazy... Just don't know what to do.
