Coincidence Or Spiritual Gifts


I hope / think I am in the right place. I am seeking some opinions about a few experiences that have occurred through my life. I am currently in therapy trying to work through some trauma and I shared these things that have happened and my therapist believes I have a gift. I stumbled on this site so I thought I would try to seek some answers here.

My 1st experience is one night I woke up to find a coffin at the end of my bed and my grandmother sitting up and reaching her hand out to me and asking me to join her. The phone immediately rang and it was "the call" letting our family know she just passed.

2nd time is I dreamt the mountains around us caught fire... A BAD fire. The next day, I was playing outside and thought is was snowing so I held out my hand and a perfectly formed "ash leaf" fell in my hand. I went inside and asked my dad what it was (I was young at the time) and he said there was a fire over the other side of the mountain. He also told me not to worry it would never come our way. I told him the the hills were going to catch fire and he told me not to be so dramatic. Well, by the end of that evening there were 52 fire engines on our street and a few homes burned and the WHOLE mountain was on fire.

Another time I dreamt about my dying mother. In the dream I needed to find her a seat in the amplitheatre because she did not have much time. She sat down way in front and I had to go to the top in the back When I looked down at her I saw her lift a baby girl up in the air. 2 weeks later she passed and I found out I was pregnant... With my daughter.

4th time I dreamt I was in an office and saw big stormy clouds roll toward us. I was called into a conference room and I got fired from my job. The next day, I along with 70 others were laid off. None of us knew this was going to happen.

There are times I can sense evil and I can on occasion know what someone is about to say. Only a word but I will know. I also get a gut feeling about someone's motive or character sometimes and I am usually spot on. I've noticed that sometimes I can sense a change and something happens like when there is a shift in my life such as a move or job change. One example is I've always sensed my golden retriever would not live past 10. She passed this past August at the age of 10.

The reason why I am unsure about these things being a gift is because they don't happen all of the time and these examples I've listed have occurred over several years starting at childhood up to present day which I am now almost 50. What do you all think? Is this coincidences or do I have an underdeveloped spiritual gift? If I do have a gift, what do you think they are? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story.

Thanks for your thoughts and responses everyone. Sorry, life has been a little interesting lately. I think I do need to learn to meditate and get out. I found the comment Anselyssa of staying cooped up at home isn't going to be helpful to me and I have isolated myself a ton over the last few years. Thank you to all of your insight!

I have dreams a lot like yours, but in time I also figured out I have a lot of psychic ability when I'm not in the dream world, like clairvoyance, clairaudience etc etc. The best thing to do is learn how to meditate. Learn how to allow your mind to relax and stop its chatter in order to let other information come through. If it doesn't come to you when you are meditating, don't worry. For me, sometimes nothing happens when I meditate. But I notice that when I meditate daily, things come to me more freuqently at random times throughout the day. Everyone is different. But you probably have some untapped abilities you can develop if you want to. ❤

Honestly speaking I don't really know much on this subject... I saw your story and it made me think about something I've been able to do since I was really little (I'm 16). Whenever someone gets pregnant (my sister most recently and our little mini aussie) I've been able to tell they are before any signs of pregnancy actually show up and I'm able to predict when the baby (puppies, kittens) will be born within about a week before the first doctor visit... Its quite a bit less scary than yours since you predict things that are unfortunate but even so I think its kind of a good thing to have around. Oh about my sister her baby was born thanksgiving of this year, about 2 months before she was born I told my sister that her daughter would be born then and it would be easy going and uneventful and I was right. Everything had gone extremely well even though it had been her first child 😆

It has been said that the Dream scape is the world
We meet Spirit, or Heaven, to include loved ones.

It is also believed that our subconscious travels during the night to view the Hall of Records:

Part of cultivating this area would be:
Keep a diary or a mental note upon awakening.
Clearing our mind/emotions by meditation, exercises with breath work. If your a person whom impliments
Prayer this is known to help clear and balance us.

I can only say that through the years I have learned to listen to my dreams and they have spoken of
Events that occure the next day and the next year.
Which can actually foretell the future
I have also found them helpful to show me the intents
Of people mind and attitudes regarding situations.
When in everyday life I have not spoken to the individual.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

You'll find that many people on this site have experiences of precognitive dreams similar to yours.

As for coincidence, here's a nice essay on it: Also, I hear that when one gets into occult studies or developing psychic abilities or in various other similar circumstances, one starts experiencing "coincidences" and synchronicities a lot more often (or else notices them more because of confirmation bias). In my experience, the universe likes to play little practical jokes on me. In your case, it seems you get somber warnings of important future events. If you want to check that something really is going on, try asking the universe to play with you for a bit and be on the look-out. It needs to be given the opportunity though; if you stay cooped up at home, it's less likely something will happen.

As for spiritual gifts, especially undeveloped ones: everyone has them.

Love is the law, love under will.
