I have had odd experiences all my life. But I've never really been free to talk to others that would understand these experiences so this is a great site!
Of all the weird stuff I experience the premonition side of my abilities scares me the most. It has come in handy on many occasions, showing up as some unseen force compelling me to do, or say things than cause a chain reaction of events- always with a good outcome, once saving all of our lives.
I was 'told' by something to prepare for something really bad to happen. Over and over I told everyone in the house something bad was going to happen. I didn't know what it was until two weeks before the event. Even scarier, I was 'told' by? That we cannot take the time to grab our things or we won't make it out alive?
Then on Oct.22, 2007 a wild fire started 4 miles away from my house at 4 am. We were shocked awake when we received the reverse 911 that told us to quickly evacuate. We had 5 cats so leaving quickly was difficult. By the time we had everyone accounted for the smoke was so thick, but family still wanted to go back in for their stuff, but hearing the warning very present in my head at the time made me remind them (then beg) for us just to get off the mountain before it all goes up in flames.
We got out just a few minutes before the fire crowned the trees encircling our block. As we ran for our lives I watched my house catch fire from the one next door, it went up in a big ball of flames. Getting off of a wildly burning mountain in a car with 200, 000 miles on it is also kind of scary.
By the grace of God we made the 2hr trip down to family. The house was a total loss. I lost everything but my old car, my family, & the clothes I was wearing that morning. I am grateful to still have what matters most. But I wonder, what was the thing? How did I know? I believe I was told but I don't know by who. Could it be my sister that died the year before? Was it the Holy Spirit? Or me having a strong instinct for danger? Some kind of new and really strong psychic ability? Thoughts and comments are appreciated.
