Premonition means ‘warning in advance’, – ‘a feeling about something that is going to happen.’ A premonition is a temporary state of mind that usually occurs prior to a traumatic event such as accidents, or deaths and is usually caused by anxiety, unease, and a gut-level feeling which induces an apprehension of a probable future event.
However psychic premonitions may also occur very casually. When the phone rings, you at once ‘know’ the caller without any reason. Premonitions may take the form of a ‘gnawing feeling’ which refuses to leave you in peace and prevents you from thinking about anything else.
Premonitions can be differentiated from precognition, as premonitions are more sense-oriented being influenced by a syndrome of psychical unease, depression, or distress that has no explanation, while precognitions are more based on knowledge of the future.
