These things have happened to me almost all my life, and the strangest part is that
usually there does not seem to be much of a reason behind it. The following happened to
me several years ago and did seem to have a purpose.

I was becoming a dealer in antique glassware and china, and needed education in the subject, to
be sure. It was a Friday and I had to choose an auction for the next day and after that I went to bed
with a decision made for the next day. There were also two other possible auctions that I
had rejected. During the night I dreamed that an auction would be very successful for me, but
it was not the one I had chosen, it was the runner-up. In the morning, I reversed my decision and
went to the one I had dreamed of, and it was there that I purchased my first whole large set of antique glassware of the
1930's, and not only was it most successful in making me money, but I learned tons from the experience.

Another experience was also perhaps for a purpose and was more recent. Fall of 2012, and I was at a trade show and
had taken there a very rare item for others to see, hopefully so I could sell it or trade it for something better. As I arrived for the
second day of the show I had this feeling that the item would go that very day. I mentioned my feeling to another dealer there,
which I would never do unless I was sure. That morning I made the big trade and traded it for something very valuable,
something I wanted much more. I had traded it to the very dealer that I had talked to about my item.
Things like this do not seem to ever happen to me unless it comes true.

Any similar experiences?

I normally dont venture afar outside the ancient history, ufo zone, but less that a week ago, i had a strange feeling almost like my own voice in my head kept saying "theres going to be a big earthquake on the other side of the world". -in a week..  i live in new jersey. of course i saw on the news yesterday that southern asia had one. idk what to think. this is not shocking because it happens alittle too frequently and well, if im not even sure of why im having these THINGS im not sure what to make of them. i think someone should start a thread  called premonitions and lets see it play out. not for fun so much but well, from what i stated above, idk maybe something positive can come of it .  
my close friends are baffled at how i seem to know certain things at times and i rarely even tell them what i seem to premonate ( is that a word?). they know of other things like for example ill say "trust me its not gonna happen" or vice versa on normal things, or in so e like when i said to my one friend dont worry about getting to the airport early , to pick up her sister, her flight will be delayed i bet a few hours. i have no idea why i said that even after it came out of my mouth im thinking thats just stupid to say, why tell her to be late? but her plane  which came from hawaii stopped in michigan ,detroit, and was having mechanical problems and had to board a new plane. mind you when i said it looking back it was already en route on time prior to landing in michigan. she didnt get into newark ,nj til nearly 3.5 hours later than schedule. this is just one reference.
truth is its making me more crazy when i do start to think of these thoughts because i consciously start to redirect them onto new thoughts and even the new thoughts have come to fruition. i dont claim to be a psychic and cannot pick obvious winning lottery numbers trust me ive tried,.. and have no books to sell. i just dont know whats going on in my head sometimes. i feel a great sense of guilt though like i coulda done something, but its only after the fact that the the premonition did in fact come true. i dont know its true until its really true when it happens. and so really im baffled myself! however theres other times im just flat wrong.

dare i ask, can anyone relate?

Hi Sheep Smart,

I can relate. I have been like this All My Life. I am now 70 years old.

The first thing I did was be careful what I tell other people. Our culture lives in fear about specifically these kind of things.

I now know a great deal more about this (gift?). What it is, how to appreciate it, and most important, what to do with it.

Hi John,
I wish i can say the same, perhaps in time.
Im 34 years old myself.
Although im not as shocked anymore these days (stress on AS) I have to say im still I guess puzzled would be a good description on behalf of the issue.
The strangest thing I find is that when I try to predict something it usually is wrong, or about a 20/100 % right.
I say this for a reason,. Ive tested myself even on a deck of cards amoungst numbers, colors ,etc. Every time im applying my concentration. I am always at a 20% rate of being consistently correct. Even on a deck of cards right down to the same suit.
On the other hand when I seem to know events or other things they just come to me without speculation.
The examples as I posted above.
Do you find it hard, generally speaking to concentrate? My mind is always a few steps ahead in just about every aspect. Sort of a linear way of thinking. In some regards I can attribute this to seeing the outcome prior to taking the steps needed to get there. If im explaining this correcly. In other words in every day chores I often get overwhelmed by doing the things I have to get done and just jumping around everything to accomplish what I must in order to achieve whatever it is i must all while knowing im not doing the necessary things that I should be doing,.. im not sure if Im explaining it well but its a downfall in respect to that.
I can identify this with A.D.D. however ive never been treated for it medically. Im not sure if this is a trait associated having this "issue" as far as being somewhat gifted for lack of better words.
If I made the assumption that you had a cat , a gray one in particular I dont expect it to be true and I certainly wouldnt expect it to be accurate. But if it turned out to be true I would t be very surprised at myself.
I can safely conclude its beyond my understanding. Lol.

I've done this a couple times myself. But I think it's just plain luck. Sometimes I'll blurt something out because I've run out of things to say when I'm talking to a person and that person would say; "yes, I am going on vacation soon" for example...which I had no way of knowing that since this person was a stranger to me. It doesn't happen too often but I think it's just a random lucky hit made by a desperate attempt to conversate (is that a word? lol).

Then again, it could be that our subconscious is psychic and sends us these premonitions. That's why when we try to consciously see the future, as in guessing cards or numbers, it doesn't work. It has to come from deep down...without "looking" for it. Which is a bit of a bummer. I'd rather have it the other way round.

Yes, think of it this way. When you need to know something, for whatever reason, the insight will arrive. The things we deem "nice to know" are more illusive.

Being two steps ahead is ok but if you are more than that it will mess up your own logical thought process. I like to let things flow and connect with the energies that I am involved with. Knowing an outcome and allowing it to unfold is more gracious than helping the process by using the linear thought process.

I do not exercise my "guessing skill". This is something quite different. I can accept that I know what I know when I do and when I do not, that is just fine with me.

Telepathy was explained to me to be a "shared experience". So if intuition is our 6th sense, the 7th is telepathy. That is what I sense you are using. The question to ask when an experience is being shared with you is "How can I be of assistance". So if a person is rushing to get to the airport, increasing their chance for an accident, say something to slow them down like "those flights are always late". Their subconscious will get the message and you will accomplish your task, as I like to call these things.

At random times in my life , I think of someone I haven't heard from in awhile, and they'll call almost instantly.  Dreaming of the future is common for me, nothing major or worldwide,  just little things to do with me. I was plagued with deja vu as a child, not much these days though. I was 8 yrs old when I had my most memorable experience,  we were going on a camping holiday . Dad was driving to a spot we hadn't been to before, and I kept telling him what was up ahead and around the bend. He wanted to know how I knew this, cause we had never been there before, and I told him it was because we just went down this exact same road  minutes before. I was told to stop doing "it" very sternly by my mother, it's impossible.  I never will forget the look she gave me, also I should add, I get a nauseating feeling when things like this happen or are about to happen and I quickly squash it down by self medication (herdal remedy).

Hi,

This may be a good time to mention why self discovery is so very frightening. Humans have a very strong "fear factor". This is a required component to balance itself with our inner most divine nature. An attribute of fear is that those who are different must be eliminated. We see this with seeming endless wars and intense disagreements. We can also see that historically those who were different in their community or culture, were killed.

We have evolved to a point where physically killing another, just because they are different, is no longer a common practice. However the memory of these experiences, and the things which make some of us different, resides in our subconscious or cellular memory.

Any one who undertakes their self discovery journey, will immediately bring to the surface of their psyche, the memories from their past life experiences. The natural skills we may carry within us are also present with the consequences associated with them. The two are interconnected and entangled with each other.

We do not teach any useful things about how to deal with our fears at this time. Instead we do a lot to encourage and foster fears. These things are starting to slowly change. It will take generations to shift our ways of being about these things.

I hope my thoughts on this subject will help to explain why so many shut down their skill potentials as quickly as they become noticed.

I like what John from Lowell just said about "fear factor". I have a friend who after several years of being blind was able to see again, and in time with special
glasses got close to 20/20 and got his drivers license back. This did not happen in a scientific way, and people he knew didn't understand it and came to fear him for what happened.

Does his newly regained sight really threaten anyone? Of course not. We fear what we do not understand.

my eyesight is precision. even after hears of reading, video games and partying its probably gotten even better. i can read the smallest letters on eye charts at docs office. i was with my friend who went to get glasses and i just read out every last letter. the optom said that was a first. plus i was standing a foot or oor so behind the standing point. not complaining !

on the downside im easily blinded by bright light and sun and snow .also at night everything is much darker. weeeeeuuurd

Yes I can relate.sometimes I'm scared to speak it out loud bad thoughts.Iwould think of a boat sinking or a tragic death and it happens. Sometimes when it happens it appears like a picture   I don't have it all the time but when it happens I think to myself I knew it I seen it already. Sometimes its totally weird and wonder how in the hell did I know this.

Well this is all too common unfortunately.  We are all born with these abilities and actually learn through aversive conditioning, like the type that S33ker above learned, to squash those abilities, fear and medicate them away.

And it works.

The solution would be for S33ker to see a therapist and learn how to tell that stern look to "shove off".  Then to rebuild and rekindle those feelings and not to fear them.  They are a natural part of all of us.  Some animal species I know, especially prey species, seem to have evolved a sixth sense to what's coming.  It may be that natural selection selected these that were able to sense danger ahead of time and avoid being killed.  We may have vestiges of that.  It may be a perfectly natural function of the brain and psyche.  Why tell kids to shut it off?

Ok,

I can't find a prediction thread, so this the closest. If you know of one, move this post there please.

In about three weeks, arizona is going to be hit with a series of huge storms. Now it could be from the tropical storms building up now in the Gulf Coast, but I just have been feeling it for a while now. This monsson season is going to be the worst we have ever had! No tornadoes or anything like that, just terential downpours, and disasterous flooding, and huge sand storms, worse than last year. No, it's not a negative thing, because we need the water out here! Wendesday the seventeenth is a date I feel strongly. Take it with a grain of salt, but I can feel it in my bones XD.

The secret of life is'nt trying to figure out the secret, its about living it.
