Let me start by saying that I don't really know if there's anything strange about me or if what I'm experiencing is anything out of the ordinary. All I can base it off of is my friends and family, and none of them understand how or why I'm able to do or see the things I can. I'm not sure when it started, but I know when I started utilizing my "abilities" on purpose.
My cousin Livey (name changed by her request) was only a couple months pregnant - not even far enough along to know the gender - when she decided to have a little competition within the family. There wasn't a prize, but the goal was to guess the day she would be having the baby. I remember wanting to desperately be part of the game and pulling her aside. She'd only smiled and said, "Of course you can, Nia! Everyone who's family can guess!" I was only about 6 years old but I knew she was only humoring me.
I thought for a few seconds before telling her she'd have a girl on March 13th 1998, at 4:30 - just before dinner. She'd stopped smiling when she heard how very detailed I was in my answer, and quickly wrote everything I said on my notepad. I asked her to name her Melody if I was right, because I thought it was a pretty name for a mermaid. She asked why I thought she'd be a mermaid and looked downright scared when I told her she'd have the baby in the water. It was later revealed she and her husband had already talked to her doctor about water birth.
I still to this day remember when my Aunt called me at 4:37 to tell me I had a new baby cousin named Melody. It's become general practice that expecting mothers in my family ask me when they're due, and I've never been wrong on gender or date. I suppose this isn't TOO strange compared to some of the stories out there, but this is only one of dozens of things I experience all the time.
Just in case anyone's wondering about Mel, she's a perfectly healthy girl. She's plays softball and is as at home on the stage as she is in the pool. Her favorite movie ended up being, and still is even at 14, The Little Mermaid II.
I suppose one example isn't enough for confirmation on whether or not the things I see are strange, so I'll post a few more stories. Thanks for any and all help!
