Oh Me Oh My, There's A Light In The Sky

From the time I was thirteen I knew that my father would die before I graduated from college – he died my junior year.

Six weeks before his death I dreamt that he had died. I was in my college dorm room, and he was dressed in white. I went to visit my parents six weeks after this dream and my father showed me things from his past, items I had never seen before. My mother had read the obit and noticed that someone I had dated in HS had been killed in Vietnam and his funeral was the next day.

I stayed one extra night and my father died the next morning. After he died I heard him sneeze in my mom’s bedroom, as though he wanted us to know that he was still around.

Precognition and possible ‘reality shift’: I often get premonitions of ‘bad events’ as a depressing feeling.

In one particular instance, I had a strong feeling of impending harm to a friend of mine as we were about to part company at the end of a long day. I managed to narrow it down to his drive home the next day, and that it would be some sort of accident, but I was faced with that odd feeling that if I told him to ‘take a different route home’ that this might not necessarily take him ‘away’ from the harm, but actually be part of the ‘path’ that led to it. So I settled on the idea that I would ‘nag’ him into being far more paranoid, alert and ‘careful’ on his drive home the next day.

I simply kept telling him that he had to be careful, watch all the traffic around him, on and on. After roughly half an hour of this, the depressing feeling suddenly lifted, and I knew he would be alright. So I stopped nagging him and went home. Next day, I checked with him, and he had indeed had a very ‘close call’ on his drive home. You can never know for certain, but it seemed that because he was driving with far more attention and care than normal, he managed to swerve in time and just miss hitting the other car that pulled out in front of him.

Perhaps because he was already fully aware of his surroundings, he did not need to lose that precious second *looking* to see if the other lane was clear, and so he could swerve instantly? Either way, this incident stands out as one where I first had a clear premonition and then somehow ‘changed’ that future. Again, on an individual basis, this incident may be evaluated as a ‘psychological’ anomaly, but it is taken in the context of other experiences with premonitions that came true.

Precognitive dream of a death. Walking with colleagues at lunch, looked up and commented on the window washer leaning backward out of the window, connected only with straps around his waist which hooked to bolts on the building. That night, I had a dream of a dead dog lying in a large pool of blood on the pavement in front of the building where I worked. The next morning, the window washer fell and was found lying on the pavement dead, in a large pool of blood.

I dreamed that a colleague’s brother had died and was standing in the funeral home. I noted exact details of the people, furnishings, and movements; and relayed this information to a friend who went with me to the viewing. Everything played out again like I had seen a movie of the event, only the “movie” was three days earlier.
