When I was a little girl watching movies, I remember being able to finish the character's dialogue. My mother would turn to me in a hushed tone and say "How did you know that?" I would answer "I don't know, it just makes sense to me."
I think this was a sign of things to come. I've always been very sensitive and intuitive, but never realized that perhaps I had a gift. In my 30s I started having premonitions, receiving messages and experiencing bouts of intense feelings either alone or around other people. I would think of a person and then a week later they would appear out of the blue. I had visions of words that an hour later would appear on a billboard or on a menu. Then there was this couple that I knew that I always felt very tense around. It made me not want to socialize with them. They seemed so happy together. Then one day my girlfriend and I were talking and she explained how jealous and possessive her boyfriend was. It was making her miserable. It dawned on me that this was the source of the tension I was feeling. My most harrowing vision was when I would gaze upon my kitty Sophie. I would see her being impaled on the head with a brick. I instantly knew her health was failing and her time was coming. Several months later she developed a tumor and died.
I decided to write down all these happenings in a journal to try to make sense of it all. It's been difficult because I don't have anyone to talk to about this. I was becoming quite comfortable and confident with my abilities. Recently, I've felt off kilter. Nothing is making sense. Last night at 9:15 I had an overwhelming feeling that a particular friend of mine was thinking about me. When I asked him if he was, he said he was sleeping at the time. Obviously I took that as a no. This threw me for a loop. I'm hoping there are others in this forum that might be able explain or provide guidance on how to cope with the nuances of my gift.
Thank you for reading my story.
