Knew it Was Going to Happen Hours Before


On January the 23rd, I turned on the television to find out that actor Heath Ledger had died during the night (my australian time). The night (a few hours before he died) before I'd had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach, an overwhelming sadness that I usually feel when someone has passed. I even cried. Something told me to write certain dates down on a piece of paper. Grabbing a piece of paper, I wrote:

Rest in Peace, 17 December, 1989 - 22nd January, 2008. I wasn't sure who it was that was born on the seventeenth of December, 1989, but I wanted to warn this person. When I found no results in my address book, I decided to forget the feeling and went to bed. This takes us back to the next morning.

After doing further research on him, I found small coincidences. Of course, I got the date of death smack on, but the 17th of December part baffled me. But, I was a day off the release of Brokeback Mountain, which premiered in America on the 16th of December. Now only the 1989 part to sleuth down. I think that was just my senses being a little off, as I was just in the wrong decade.

You probably don't believe me, but what happened to me is true as true can be. I could've been dishonest and said that I got the dates completely right. This is my first premonition thing, and I want to know if others have experienced something like this.

I really enjoyed your story, what I found intresting outside of your story was that, my name is Rebecca, and I also experience thoughts of people passing away hours or minutes before they pass.

Halloween is my most dreaded time for feeling the passing of people/animals, but that is only because the night of halloween is when the dead passes over.

Hey coolness,

December 17, 1989 = Brazil holds its first free election in 29 years.

December 17, 1989. Beethoven's 219th birthday celebration.

Beijing International Conference on Combating Desertification January 22, 2008.

January 22, 2008 Bernanke Put to Test as U.S. Economy Struggles.

I found a few intresting events that happened on those days, I try to look further past, and see if I can google what I'm feeling.

Hello creepy, my sister was born in January, and my father was born in December, I however was born in 1985, just years before.

I think that premonitions are scary, especially about death. I had one about my friend, sitting on the bed all of a sudden I got a bad feeling, scared for him, but not knowing why. I kept asking him if he was all right. And he said he was. But it was Just an overall feeling of dread. Two months later, they found him dead on the floor in that very spot, he had been shot in the chest. See. I only get half premonitions, no information, no image, just a feeling.

I've never told this story to anyone because I knew I would not be believed, but two of us know it happened. In 1999 my daughter was only 8 years old and always slept like a baby but one morning she woke up very upset and told me she'd had a dream about a date and was told by someone to remember it; the date was September 1, 2001. We wrote the date down on a calander and forgot about it. When that date came and nothing unusual happened I just dismissed it but she kept insisting that she could feel it was very important. I always thought she saw the correct date but only remembered the number 1, maybe not realizing that it was to be duplicated to 11.

Yes, I totalley understand this... Before 911 happened I had a overwhelming feeling that something horrible was about to happen. Told all my kids that I don't know what it is but it is not good. So yes I understand, I get vision everyday... Both good and not so good... I also have telepathy I can read minds and get into peoples dream. I appear in there dreams. When they see me they are startteled. I can choose who and when I will let in, that is my thoughts. Over the years it gets stronger and stronger. It is not a bad thing it alright. When it gets to loud I turn it off...

maybe you didn't predict Heath's death. Maybe you predicted something else. I'd keep looking.

I once called my mom and said "Mom are you okay?" Yes she stated to me why? I said " Well I had this dream you went out today and when you were getting off the bus, you stepped on a pebble fell down and broke your ankel. Mom knew when I said this stuff, I knew what happen. She stayed home from going shopping and was fine.
Once I said " Mom be careful today please, I had a dream you will fall down and break something". She said to me she is fine was not going out and staying home.
A few hours later my brother calls to inform me that Mom fell down and broke two ribs. So that is the reason when I call and tell her to watch out, don't go some place she listen to me. She now rest in peace with Jesus.

Magical - I do kind of understand. Maybe. A few times, long ago, have had drunks actually chase me calling Princess Di. We always changed our hair about the same time. I remember laughing about it. Our generation. Our oldest sons and youngest are alike in many ways. I sat in front of the TV, early morning hours when I should have been asleep, when the reports came in about her accident and later her death. I had felt a young, famous, woman would leave months before. I thought maybe President Clinton's daughter, but didn't try to see it. There were just too many connections to Princess Di. We got married about the same time. On and on and on. Anyway, later saw planes crash in astral voyages, (called it flying because didn't know about them) but not enough info to report anything. Just an astral voyage and seeing it happen. We can't change history is my feeling much later. I wasn't allowed to interfere. We just have to understand and learn and set our priorities and try to be happy and content - and grateful no matter what. It is very confusing at times. Raking leaves and humor are both good when it gets overwhelming. I think everyone here is just here to learn at their level. Does that make any sense?

Hi, I jut found this site and have enjoyed reading all your stories.

I'm very much an empath and can feel the energy of a space and have had lots of experiences with telepathy, knowing what a person is going to say, and have also had contact with spirits and guides. But I had never really had any premonitions until just recently.

I had a vision of Benazir Bhutto being assassinated in Pakistan. It was about a week earlier, and I was listening to an news program about her on NPR. I had a brief vision of her standing up in a car with a sunroof and being shot. I was floored to hear about the assassination a week later, and that it happened exactly the way I had visualized it.
I don't know if I like having this gift, especially if there is nothing I can do to help the person... 😢

The night after Heath passed. I dreampt that I was in a hospital room, but I was not able give any detail about the room. For me that is strange because usually for me I can come out of dreams with "and there was a stain on the wall three inches up".

At first I was an observer watching a man sitting behind a pregnant woman giving birth on a bed. He had his arms wrapped around like he was hugging her and leaning over her shoulder whispering encouragement to her.

Then all of the sudden I was her and I was focusing on where to grab on for traction in order to push. Once it was the hem of my hospital gown then it was the edge of the mattress.

Then I was the man and at that point I knew I was Heath. The amazement and excitement he was feeling was making my chest want to burst. He was telling Michelle the most beautiful things. He was crying tears of joy. He was sweaty. He was giddy. Just as the thoughts went through his head (my head at the time) "this is the best moment of my life, I will do everything for her, she is my life..." I heard Matlida's first cry and I awoke from the dream.

I know there are suspicions surrounding the death of Heath, but I have the most absolute unwavering belief that this dream was supposed to be a way to say he would never have left Matilda on purpose. Am I crazy?

at around 1pm in the afternoon in my usa eastern time, I was working, and drifted into some sort of daydream, (which is unusual for me) about him and that was probably around when he died in your time.
ironic huh?
i didn't know him, but feel awful bad for his family and wish the press would leave them alone.

Oh yes I have had Premonitions nearly all my life. I told my ex hubby not to drive one night that he would get into a bad accident.
He was late getting home. I called the police and they had no calls.
An hour past and I got the phone call from the Police that my hubby went down an up ramp to the highway hit head on and totalled my car.
The other guy got shook up and a broken finger.
From then on my hubby did not want to hear what was going on, he told me I was a jinx he was actually afraid of me when I talked like that.
