Well at random times I get visions or whatever you want to call them. Future events play out through me. Except I see them as normal life. Like for example a week ago it said A high school in my state had got broken into and stuff broken up and graffiti everywhere on the news. I thought that sucked and didn't think of it. About two days ago Same exact story came on. And it said it happened yesterday so why would they have an update of something a week old? But stuff like that happens alot more often. My problem is I don't know if it happens or not and I can' tell if I have seen anything or if it is just like normal time. Very confusing and I would like some advice on how to strengthen it.

Any help will be well appreciated and one more note. Please do not flame because I don't want this one deleted.

Okie doke i've got a reply from another person that if you keep trying to predit the outcome of something, your precog will improve. So I and I mean I not the other person, would suggest you to go try to do those tests on the other websites.

Personally, I'd suggest keeping a written, date-stamped record of all such visions you have - maybe this thread would be a good place to put them?

This way, you'll have a detailed database of all your visions, and can get feedback as to how detailed or specific others see them as.

It may also allow you to pick up on details you hadn't noticed before, and figure out of there are any themes etc. which would help you steer your ability (if indeed an ability it is).

My wife can predict songs lol not all the time but enough. It does seem many people have useless precognitions and visions and such but it happens. Time is like a river and sometimes you can see whats a little bit downstream. I do not think you can strengthen it as you can other psi phenomena through mental exercise but I can be wrong. Just go with the flow and maybe you will get something important later on down the line to act on and save the day!

Hey guys thanks for the replies. But some new stuff has happened that I am realizing. Not visions but thoughts. Like last week I sent an email to receive a brochure this morning I said I sure hope it came in my mind and there it was at the bottom of the mail. And I was thinking of trying this psi called pyrokinesis I thought I sure hope I can find matches and they were right there on the table and again I thought I sure hope someone gets home soon and my brother and his friend walked in exactly then. Coincidences? I think it is pretty weird but if I think something nothing happens but them random thoughts it does. I guess that is precog.

I'm not sure you're going to be able to differentiate these sorts of subjectively 'psychic' impressions from mundane anticipation/probabilistic reasoning.  For instance:

Last week you sent for something which you wanted; this week you found yourself hoping it would come, and it did.  That's what happens when you send for stuff you want.

I compeltely fail to see even any possibility of psychic powers in this one.  You hoped you would find matches, and they were on the table.  This morning, I hoped we had some bread left, and lo!  There was bread.  How is that psychic?

Quote

Again, so completely normal that it's not even worth going into.

Coincidences?

Not even that!  Just stuff that happens to everyone, all day long.

If I were you, I'd stick with the visions, and record them as quickly as possible, preferably somewhere online with a date stamp (again, like this forum), so it can be judged whether what you thought was going to happen did, whether the details could have been anticipated, and what your 'hit rate' is.  These random thoughts are simply that.

This is exactly what I would have recommended. Time and date stamp your "vision". LOL. I have done it on this site and learned to do it in a "different way". I told a sight/vision of a wrestler that died prior to any details of anything surrounding his death. I was 'warned' by other members that I was making up stories and being mean. I was actually time/date stamping my thoughts which later were just about 100% true. LOL. (I'll look for it). Try the blogs.

this is to nucular the matches I mentioned that because for the last week I have been looking for some and I quit what I was planning to do with them. Out of nowhere the thought popped up and it was there. My brother was over an hour late and I thought when is he gonna come and he just walked in the door. And the mail thing I completely forgot and I do not go through the mail EVER. I just happened to get the thought that I should look and it was there.

Look, I'm not trying to p*ss on your bonfire, but I honestly don't see a way to distinguish these types of psychic experiences from non-psychic ones.

What I'm saying is very different to saying to you that it's definitely not psychic - maybe it is.  But what I am saying is that, given the possbility that you would have been thinking about some of these things anyway, there is no way for us to know.

For example, I could say to you that you replied to my post at 9.28pm GMT yesterday, and I had been wondering at precisely 9.20pm whether you had replied or not.  I probably was (though in reality I can't remember), but was it psychic?  I of course had no way of knowing when, or if, you would reply to my post, nor even whether you would contribute further to the thread... but in terms of probabilities, it was more likely than not that you'd post again in the thread you started; that this would take place sometime in the 48 hours after your last post; and, now I come to look at the thread, was likely to be mid-late evening UK time, since that's when you seem to post.

Couple this with my own timekeeping - my computer has usually been off for about an hour by 9.20, and I'll be thinking "I might just check to see if anyone's replied to me on the message boards... actually no, I can't be bothered and I want to watch TV" - and you can see that there's a perfectly natural explanation.  But I wasn't consciously aware of this explanation until I just thought it through in a certain way.  I might never have been aware of this explanation if I'd either opted for a more attractive psi explanation, or if I'd not had cause to think it through.

But I could still maintain that, regardless of those facts, it was a psychic impression rather than a subconscious estimate of likelihood.  And it may have been - the point is, that there's no way to tell the difference when the mundane explanation can't be ruled out.

I still think that applies to your described experiences.  Take the example of your brother.  He was an hour late.  On the surface, I can see where you're coming from - you expected him at a particular time, he didn't come; therefore there was no way of knowing where he was or how long he'd be, and yet you thought of him the second before he walked in.

But you were expecting him at a certain time, and there will have been a growing awareness, on some level of consciousness, that someone should be here and is not.  This type of expectation thought tends to increase in frequency over the period, which correlates with the likelihood that, based on all information you have, he will walk in.  All else being equal, if someone is late, the likelihood that they'll walk in within one minute increases for every minute they are late (and then beyond a certain time, it'll tail off again).  Your thought may well cimply reflect this, and it's liekly you had similar thoughts prior to the one which occurred at that moment which you've forgotten, since it's completely unremarkable to think of a person and have them not appear (google 'expectation bias' and 'confirmation bias').

So, maybe it's psychic, but there's no way for anyone - I maintain, you included - to tell.  Whereas with the visions you describe, we'd have more of a chance.  So all I'm saying is, my advice remains, stick with the visions if you're looking for evidence of an ability or a way to develop it.

Some people just simply cannot see the magic in every day events. Sure it might be non-psychic activity and not full blow psi but that is not what is important. The thought process and how we think and are wires is. If you close you mind to the possibility you will never achieve what is possible with the mind. Think of it like this. A baby crawls and rises and stumbles. Is this walking? No. But we know that the end goal is walking. And until he gets in the frame of mind to learn to walk he would never be able to. Others help them along of course and well I am helping you along. Keep trying, do not lose this frame of mind, and the magic will happen. If the whole world did not believe and walking and told you it was impossible would you stop trying and forever remain crawling?

I've been very clear that I'm not closing my mind to the possibility; I'm simply saying there's no way to tell the difference.

This doesn't work as an analogy since we of course know that walking 'exists', and we can tell the difference, very easily, between walking and, say, crawling.

Perhaps a more apt analogy would be flying, rather than walking.  Some on here will tell you that the baby may be able to fly if it uses its psi powers just right; and so the baby's first stumbling steps may be achieved through psi power, rather than muscle action.  Indeed, maybe the muscle action itself is driven by psi powers, and is the first step towards flying.  But there's no way to tell.  So those stumbling steps remain exactly the same thing as everyone else experiences, and remain unremarkable until the baby actually lifts off, making sceptics look silly.
