I have had occurrences of precognition all of my life. As a kid, I frequently freaked people out because I would say "the phone is gonna ring, it is Granny", or whomever, and within seconds it did happen accurately.

I lived on a farm, growing up. It was a very isolated place. On more than one occasion, I would go down the long driveway and meet visitors from out of state who had given no notice of their visit. Every time, they would say, "How did you know we were coming? It was a surprise." I always just knew.

I have been forewarned of dangerous situations, to the point, my husband just turns the car around when I tell him to do so. It has never failed, if the warning is not followed something adverse occurs.

And dreams... well let us just say I pay very close attention to any dream which is as clear as a waking moment. The one that I always share when asked happened in 1981. It is notable because we had overnight guests. I dreamed that I got a phone call from my parents telling me my Grandpa had passed away, and exactly how it happened. In the morning I described my dream in detail to my friends and husband. Three nights later, just as I dreamed, I got the call.

I believe precognition is a natural part of humanity, which many people don't recognize or give credence to. Most people you speak to, can remember at least one time when they had a forewarning or foreboding thought. I believe as we learn more, and become accepting of this ability, we will use it to better advantage in our daily lives. BT

I never use to think its possible and i'm still unsure for things far in the future, but i've had my own experience of seeing something in my mind about 30 seconds before it happened (it might of been less)

I was reading a book on the tables outside a bar (so i could smoke) but as i was reading i got a brief (but strong) vision in my mind, of me still sat there and i was getting absolutely soaked from very heavy rain, i carried on reading and the next thing i knew it had started spitting. Not taking any chances i got up and went inside, almost as soon as i got in the heavens opened and soaked everyone who hadn't yet got inside. That was enough to convince me its possible at least in the short term as i hadn't been paying attention to the sky for most of that day and was to engrossed in the book to look up and think 'oh, looks like it might rain' so i couldn't see a reason for that vision to hit me. Its never happened since tho

It happens quite often for me, most cases it is danger.

What happens for me, is I would see "visions" to the side of my periperal like a cloud playing a youtube video of what is to come; like one time I was waiting at a stop light and the vision happened to the right of me and showed a bad car accident and I also had the gut feeling to not turn right and go straight after the light, but I wanted to test it out and drove right and sure enough it was a bad bad car accident and I was late for school.

I've recently started taking blood pressure medicine which seems to have increased my ability to link up my thoughts with things that haven't happened yet. A week or so ago, I had a lot of incidents relating to jazz singer Al Jolson, for some reason. A random thought in a car, a sign on a theater, a cartoon played for somebody's backyard movie night. I seriously doubt that until then, I had not thought of Al Jolsen in years.

Of course, it could be "just coincidence," and I discussed this with a woman at the backyard picnic. She said it might just be a matter of selective or heightened perception. After the cartoon came on, though, she said she'd give me that one.

Does some kind of field or form ripple out forwards and backwards in time, enough for us to sense it if we can pick out the signal from the noise? I could see an evolutionary advantage to it. But we don't have anything to explain it. And why would I get better at it as a result of a blood pressure medication? Some kind of tiny quantum chemical thing? Maybe.

Just watch out. Lately the phrase, "... this is what it was like before the asteroid hit," frequently come to mind. As if I was watching a scene, but also remembering it as something in the past. Fair warning.

I don't like sounding like one of those people who say I can do it better but I have had tons of times I have either dreamt or seen or just 'knew' something was going to happen.

I knew someone close to me was going to die, my mum died that night.
I dreamt my spouse's best man's speech.
I knew we were in danger for 4 hours before we drove down from the Sommelier glacier in the Italian Alps, in a Landrover where we too loaded and too long for a hairpin with shale. I couldn't stop crying
I had to make a decision to hold on while it went over or to let go of the back ladder and then pick up the pieces after. I was told to put my hands on the bonnet and push, after telling my spouse to put the steering wheel on full right lock. Somehow the Landrover moved sideways to a perfect position on the road. I have never been so scared.

Another time was my sister's birthday party at a dance club. I had left my tiny dog with my mum to dogsit and I was the designated driver for my sister and my fiance.
I couldn't stop crying and saying I wanted to go home. we found out the whole street had been burgled and a lot of the electrical and CDs and jewellery had been stolen. If my dog had been at home they would have hurt him. The one item that hurt the most was a CD that my mum gave me as a teenager that would help me to sleep.

Another occasion was on a camping holiday with my kids. I was waiting to make a whittled wooden spoon and I 'saw' in a daydream a boy cut himself badly. I saw his mum, where he was standing and the hand he cut. Where I 'saw' where he was standing, was at that moment a girl and her mum.
My kids then turned up and I had a chat with them and I forgot to pray that the timeline would change, so he wouldn't get hurt.
I looked around to see the boy in my daydream standing there clutching his badly hurt hand. I have never felt so guilty.

The strongest deja vu I have ever had was when I dreamt that I was in a white car with my spouse driving a bigger white car in front of me. In the dream I knew something had happened that was of immense importance and that life was going to change. At the time we could only afford one car and it was white. (Most of my cars have been white so I didn't think anything of it.)
Years later this exact event occurred with my car being smaller and without a radio. At the precise moment that our cars went around a tall brick wall, my spouse was listening to the radio when the Twin towers were being reported to have come down. My spouse was horrified and I had picked this feeling up, in the dream.
Then we arrived at the destination. he went to do something but told me to sit in his car and listen to the radio. That's when I heard about the fourth plane and I prayed that the plane wouldn't hit its target. I cried for the people and the world.
I realized that the event had rippled backwards in time (& forwards) and I had picked it up in a dream.

My eldest has deja vu all the time but in 2006 after the Alps incident they changed for the better. Sometimes the deja vu would play out in front of ---- eyes whilst the reality was actually better.

We look at deja vu's as a kind of road signal, that we are on the right track.

Yes I DO.

I have had precognitive dreams. The first of which put me in the psych ward for about a week.

I have had one that I posted about on ATS that hope never happens...

Yes I believe in precognition 100%

posted on Sep, 8 2011 @ 09:43 PM
I completely believe in this. I like to call it "intuition"
Most people just ignore it though and chalk it up as coincidence.

Nice thread

I know how you feel...sometimes I worry about precognitive dreams are usually stupid and confusing, so I don't take them too seriously. However in the past few months I've dreamt a few times about UFOs appearing in the sky, in one of the dreams I knew for certain that the sighting was so massive that some sort of government disclosure had to be on the horizon, because something like this couldn't be denied. I even called up my cousin and told her that, in the dream. Part of me hopes this will happen, but the rest of me is hoping that they are just dreams and nothing more than a manifestation of my own paranoia.

It has never happened to me but I do have visions of things that are happening at the moment. Let me explain, my Brother was in Australia and I'm in Canada and I have a vision of him holding his stomach and in pain. He phones a few days later and told him and he said he ate some really bad curry. I also knew when my wife was going through false labour pains while I was at work the time they started and the time they finished. I have many other experiences like that for the last 10 years.

This runs in my family. My grandmother has it, so does her sister, my mother, and someone else, but I forgot. I seem to have it a bit, but nothing compared to them. My grandmother's sister for example knew someone would fall down the stairs, and a day later it happened. There are a lot more examples, but a more recent one is my grandmother saying she felt a certain someone would propose to his girlfriend on her Birthday. A few days later a good friend of the family called and said exactly what my grandmother felt would happen. I've had experiences, such as getting a weird feeling at my heart, and a few minutes later an ambulance arrived at the neighbor. He had a heart attack.

My mother and grandmother basically always know when either one is about to call too.

I think there's a lot to be said for the subconscious mind's ability to predict future events not by extrasensory perception, but by a combination of normal perception plus sophisticated pattern recognition. You may get a good hunch about some event that is about to happen and not have any clear idea about how you anticipated that event. This doesn't mean the prediction comes magical out of thin air, just because you don't know how you got the idea.

I think there is also a lot to say about how hunches seem to resemble precognition when reviewed in hindsight. But how many times have you, by inexplicable means, been able to announce an event before it actually happens. Also, do you count all the times your hunches don't pan out?

To those who shared their any of you see a sequence of numbers at certain times of the day? for example..right after I started feeling these gut feelings i began too see 444 everywhere.

not sure what causes it..i dont dwell on the numbers or just pops up from time to time.

You too! Yes, since October or November of last year I have been seeing 1's, 3's, 0's, 9's, 2's, 11, 33, 21, etc. This is literally driving me nuts. I have found out that there are others on ATS that is having this happen to them as well.

My situation usually appears on a clock, whether it's digital or analog. Every freakin' time I look at a clock it's 21, 11, 33 past the hour or get this one...I always seem to catch these times...12:11 which coincidentally is my birthday, 2:11, 11:11, 3:11, 1:11 and 9:11 never fails. I feel like Bill Murray in the movie "Groundhog Day". I have gotten so used to it that now I am kind immune to what was, surprise times. Always these numbers though.

At first I was driving everyone in my family crazy because I would say stuff like "See, it's 2:11 again". Of course it's 2:11 again, that happens everyday...but I always see the time...everyday. I have even awaken in the middle of the night, looked at the clock and it would be...yes you guessed it, 2:11am, etc..

One day in January, I was watching the ticker and it seemed for an hour straight the DOW was trading in nothing but 1's, 2's, 3's and 9's. It was so shocking I started recording it. I thought Wall Street was playing games (I still think they were...I believe everything was coded for those in the "know" and those were the numbers they used that day). I don't recall the date but I remember it was not a good day on Wall Street.

I look for a lot of answers, but I really need this one answered...this isn't right and somethings off. No, it's not me

I never believed in precognitive experiences before although I experienced something impossible to ignore.

At one point I decided to get a workout by swimming and swam until complete physical exhaustion. Somehow I made it to my apartment and passed out. At some point I woke up or dreamt I woke up and saw a woman lying at the end of the couch I passed out on. Somehow my immediate gut instinct response instead of who are you was are you ok. The I reached out to help and provide actual pysical contact but my vision dissapeared. For about a year I thought I saw a ghost although then I met a woman going through a divorce feeling a depression I never saw before because she was away from her son.

At one pint I saw her in the exact position of my vision as an exact mirror imnage of my vision. I know what I saw and amminterested in anyone elses experience that may be similar. It was a vision of my future of course but not clear until I reached that point in my future. Is it possible to control thagt kind of vision and learn more?

I've had a few incidents, but nothing concrete. I can't characterize what exactly happened- I'll leave it up to you. Both have been related to deaths of family members. When I was 4, my much loved grandpa went to the hospital for a minor procedure. We went to visit, and although I adored him and had been to hospitals numerous times before, I absolutely would not go upstairs because I insisted he wasn't there. When we got upstairs we discovered he had passed away unexpectedly and seemingly peacefully within the last few minutes. Later, at 12, the phone rang and before my dad picked it up, I told him grandma was gone. It was the hospital, and she had passed. Last year, my mom was hospitalized. I had been sleeping at her bedside for a week and finally went home to get some sleep. Even though I was exhausted, I woke up at 4am with an urgency to get to the hospital ASAP. I got there and Mom was fine, and I felt silly. About 10 minutes later, a bleary eyed nurse came in to give my mom an injection. It seemed strange, so I asked about it. It was the wrong medicine, something my mother is deathly allergic to.
Maybe it's just coincidence, but I felt an unusual certainty in these situations.

I've experienced precognition too many times to count. Right now I see myself on the beach and it's warm and sunny. Later at night I see myself drinking beer and enjoying the night life. Then I see myself returning to work but I like to not think about that. Just by coincidence I have 3 days of vacation this coming week. Yeah...

Actually I have done things and said things that have occasionally been on the verge of freaking other people out since I had no way of knowing in their minds that something had happened or was about to. I've discovered if you tell someone what is about to happen, they don't want to hear it. Well there may be a few exceptions here on ATS.

I'm attempting to make better stock trades. I get impatient a lot and lose money when I do that. I have been beating the market averages since about a year ago though. My goal is to consistently average at least 5 percent a month every month. I'm still working on that. I'm up only about 5 percent for the year to date so I've fallen behind. My 401K is doing even worse down about 1 to 2 percent for the year. There are too many restrictions on that account and I can't do much with it unless I quit my job first. That sucks if you've been working most of your life with one company. Maybe if some government bureaucrat reads this and thinks about how much government revenue is lost by not allowing existing employees to transfer funds to a brokerage account where it could get much bigger much faster, they'll change the law. I'm pretty certain I could make an extra 5 to 10 percent a year outside of my 401K without all the restrictions. That would result in me eventually paying a lot more taxes on all those extra funds. However the government is stupid and doesn't care about long term plans or helping the individual unless there's something in it for them. My precognitive ability tells me this is not likely to change since about 95 to 99 percent of people know less than I do when it comes to the stock market.

Something I did not see coming was the SP500 having a bottom in March of 2009 that makes up the numbers of my birthday. Amazing coincidence I thought. I did think the market would have a bottom around 666 though and it bottomed exactly at 666.79 and then went back up. I did not foresee it doubling in less than 2 years though. I need to work on my precognition.

Precognition happens from time to time.

The most interesting and kind of funny one I had was when I was about 14 yrs old. Me and my friends were trying to build this tree-house up on a tree, so we were climbing the tree and bringing boards up there to see how they would fit and such. Anyways we brought this board up about 2 and a half stories up on the tree, and placed it between two thick branches and we were going to use that as our base for the rest of the little shanty tree house we were trying to build.

So anyways we put it down between the thickest and straightest branches we found, and it fit perfectly so my friends were testing it and walking on it and even jumping on it to see if it would be stable and not give. I was on one side of the tree and one of my friends was on the other side of the board on the other branch, and he was walking back and forth on the board.

All seemed fine, and so I went to go to him on the other side of the tree using the board we put up. And as soon as my foot touched the board, I got this weird felling and pulled it back like I stepped on fire. And when my friend saw that I was not going to go on the board he started saying that I was scared and all that stuff.

So I just told him straight up that its going to break and I ain't going on it. And since he was already on it back and forth a couple of times, he didn't believe me so he got on it again and went to the middle. And I forgot what he said, but I think it was along the lines of "See told you it ain't going to break"

And as soon as he got finished saying his line, the board broke down the middle and he fell straight down, hitting every branch in the way till he met the ground back first. And I don't know what it was because we were pretty high up, and the branches must of broken his fall somewhat because he was fine. Or at least he got the wind knocked out of him and couldn't get up for about 5 minutes, and when he got up he couldn't walk straight.

But from that height he should of broken something or it could of been more serious then it was. But he was fine the next day, but he wouldn't go up the tree again, so we gave up on making our little tree house. And from that little incident whenever we did something and I all of a sudden acted weird and got out of the way or just didn't want to do something he quickly followed suit without questions.

Though it was not the vision type of precognition it was more along the lines of just a felling and the knowledge that something bad would happen if I went out on the board we placed to be our floor/base for the tree-house. And I have had visions of stuff as well but I don't keep track of them, but usually when they are about to happen I get the deja vu, and I remember the visions and other weird stuff.

So ya precognition's happens from time to time, though it seemed to happen a lot more when I was younger.

I occasionally get the sudden flash but I can't be actively thinking. I'll be very tired and just blabbering about something non-important when a prediction pops out of my mouth. Usually about myself though, nothing big.

Apparently I can respond to people's non-verbal thoughts when I'm really tired and not thinking of anything as well.

On a number of occasions I've called someone and they told me they were about to call me and these are people I don't talk to every day. One time I thought I heard my roomate's aunt had died. I wasn't on the phone but listening. I told him sorry to hear your aunt died. Then he said no one said anyone died, they just said it was important to meet him. When the relatives met him, they told him his father had just passed away.

One time I thought I saw a figure I call death coming down out of the sky. There was actually a tornado approaching our house. We were spared but some tall pine trees right next to the house were not. If I remember correctly half my life flashed before me and then I imagined something else protecting us. I would have thought it was all my imagination and that I wasn't completely awake if not for the tornado damage to the trees. It was amazing that our house was not at all damaged but large tall pines were chopped off less than one foot above the roof level a few feet away from our house.

I have definitely had precognitive dreams. Some were as clear as day as to what the event would be, usually mundane events just to confirm the fact that I had precognitive abilities. Others were more symbolic but with certain images that when the event happened there was no doubt that this was what the dream foretold.
One example of the more symbolic ones was one when I was teen, with a building I had never seen before being carried away and burned up by a lava flow. A few weeks later my mother was looking for a new place to rent, and the place she ended up renting was in the building from my dream, despite my begging her not to. a lot of bad things happened there, and I knew right away the lava symbolized those events.

One of the more clear ones was a simple dream of my neighbor bringing over a portable kitchen island. Immediately upon waking my neighbor called and said they were remodeling, and asked if I wanted the kitchen island, knowing I had a large kitchen at the time and had plenty of room for it.
