This is my first thread, so be gentle
I began having premonitory in about the 7th or 8th grade and have been having them continuously, two or three times a week, (with varying degrees of
intensity) for the last 12 or 13 years.
The premonitions themselves rarely give me anything more than the ability to anticipate someone entering a room seconds before it happens, but
sometimes I get a good glimpse of something interesting.
The quality of these premonitions seem to be dependent on the amount of stress or change I'm going through in my life (moving to a new place,
relationship changes, job changes, financial worries, etc). I think the dreams were most powerful when I was a teenager due to the severe amount of
drama I had to endure during my parent's divorce.
When it first happened I was in 7th grade and remember dreaming about my computer science class. I was sitting at my workstation and my teacher was a
few feet away chatting with a bunch of other teachers. They were talking about how difficult it was to get into the office to get their paychecks, one
of the statements being "It's like WWF in there!"
The next morning, I'm sitting in that same computer class with my teacher having the exact same conversation nearby. I wasn't really paying
attention (too busy trying to send trojans and stuff to my friends), but at some point I kind of tuned, perked up and said (rather loudly) "It's
like WWF in there!" at the same time the other teacher did. They all looked at me strangely and went somewhere else to talk.
Another time that stands out is when I was about 15... I think it was not too long after the first incident. I was 15 or so and living in Oregon at
the time... I remember having a dream about living in Canada with this girl who had long curly brown hair. In my dream I remember seeing a little
calico colored cat and possibly the ugliest green flower-patterened couch I'd ever seen.
The next morning I came downstairs and for some reason NEEDED to tell my dad about it. We had a good laugh, made some Canadian jokes and left it at
At the age of 19 while I was living in Colorado, I met this Canadian girl online with long brown curly hair. I ended up moving to western Quebec with
her and we eventually got a little calico colored cat named Bean. The memory of this dream didn't register though until her parents gave us that
disgusting green couch from their basement... Her dad and brothers had moved the couch into our apartment while I was at work and once I came home the
whole thing clicked. Mind you, this dream was from FOUR YEARS in the past. Blew my mind.
I've got several other memorable incidents and I'd be happy to share them if anyone's interested.
Basically, I was wondering if anybody could share some stories or advice on how I might be able to harness this phenomenon and somehow gain some
personal growth from it. I don't expect to be able to see future lottery numbers or anything silly like that; I like to think I'm a little more
evolved than that
