Premonitions are foreknowledge about the future. This knowledge comes in ways that are outside the realms of known science. Premonitions are slightly different from ‘prophecy’, which is usually used to mean foretelling the future for countries, events or large groups of people. Prophecy sounds very important and fateful. However, the more everyday happenings of premonition can be equally important and even life-changing.
Having premonitions isn’t the same as divination. When you try to tell the future using tarot cards, crystal ball or by developing talents as a medium, you may have lots of success. However, this is something you cultivate and do on purpose. Premonitions come spontaneously, and the trick is to learn to take notice.
In this article we look at:
Some people have lots, and others will say they have never had anything of the sort. However, it may take extreme circumstances, such as great danger, to trigger premonitions. It is probable that everyone is capable of developing this sixth sense, and it may be something we have grown out of, as we became more civilized.
Quite possibly you can have premonitions and not notice them. We are so used to screening out things that happen that don’t make sense to the conscious mind. Start taking notice of all your reactions and you may discover that you have many more premonitions than you thought.
There are countless stories of people whose lives have been saved, or who saved others from death or serious injury through premonitions. For instance, people have taken extra care on journeys because they had a premonition of an accident, to find they narrowly miss a collision because of this. Or people have decided not to go on a plane because they have a bad ‘feeling’, and then the plane crashes.
Some of the most common premonitions connect parents and their children, where a sense of danger to the child triggers action that saves the child’s life.
People who are clairvoyant may get distinct visions of the future, but premonitions can happen to any of us.
Ask yourself how often you ‘knew’ something wasn’t quite right before disaster struck, or had a good feeling about something that turned out to be right. Chances are that has happened quite frequently, but then you just dismiss it as coincidence.
Premonitions can be really trivial. For instance, you may call someone just as they were going to pick up the phone to you, or say what someone was about to say. It’s easy to laugh at this and take it for granted, but this is premonition in action. Of course, telepathy could play a part too, but telepathy may be part of premonition generally.
So resolve to respect your premonitions. Get in the habit of asking yourself what you ‘feel’ is going to happen. This is like exercising a muscle, and soon you may find that you’re having lots of premonitions.
We’ve looked at who has premonitions, what they are and how to develop them. But what do you do if you have a scary feeling and you’re not sure if it’s a premonition, or imagination? You may also not know what to do if you have a premonition of trouble or danger.
