Premonitions or Lucky Guesses?

The following paranormal phenomena statements are extracts on premonitions from the first spontaneous paranormal survey conducted by Psychic Revolution. These accounts have not been edited but any information that may identify the original contributor has been removed.

I had the same dream over and over about an old school friend. I dreamt he was in wheelchair. This dream persisted and persisted until I managed to get back into contact with him. Once I found out he was alright the dreams stopped. Around 12 months later I was informed that he had a stroke at the age of 26 and was in a wheelchair and had to learn to walk again. The news hit me in the face like a ton of bricks!!

I had a dream that I had gone to pick up my young son at school and the mother of one of his classmates was looking for her daughter. In the dream, I said to her that my son and her daughter were playing just down the way a bit. At this point in my life, I was back to work fulltime and a good friend of mine was looking after my son and my baby daughter. When I got home from work the day after I had this dream, my friend started to tell me about this woman at my son’s school and I abruptly interrupted her so that she would not say anymore about this woman until I told her about the dream I had the night before. Turns out that I had had a premonition; the only difference was that it was my friend talking to this woman, not me as in my dream.

I met three boys for about five minutes. I got physically ill in their presence. I felt evil coming out of them and I had to get away from them. That night they brutally killed one of the boys mother. It was a terrible experience. Made me physically sick.

dream about my mother – she is lying in a coffin – it is her funeral – my husband is with me holding my hand – my mother is also standing beside me holding my hand – it is raining outside.

I woke up startled, frightened – I woke my husband – a few minutes later the phone rang – it was my mother – she has pain in her arm – I took her to a doctor, a naturopath, a chiropractor, a craniosacral therapist, nothing helped, one of my friends who is a medical intuitive said she got the impression stroke – but all doctors said no. We were all depressed and anxious.

Three weeks later she died. I was doing Therapeutic Touch for her. Probably a stroke. She was 91 years old. It was the end of December. It rained during the funeral.

I would like to start out by saying that I have premonitions, but not the ordinary kind. When I get them, they start out as an overwhelming fear or gut feeling. It will go on for days and days. I’ll have dreams about it, and it just always sits on the front of my mind. I cant think about anything else. Its always there until it comes to happen. Usually they come about in twos, two days two weeks two months. Its a pattern that I have seen in all of mine that have come true and there have been a few.

In one particular instance I was having this “issue” with a car accident. I got so upset and worried about it happening that I refused to leave the house for two weeks. (You have to understand I’m an execellent driver no tickets or accidents ever in my eleven years of driving.) I had finaly convinced myself that I couldnt hide out forever and that I had chores to do. I ended up driving to my grandmothers house to help her with yard work. Nothing happened on the white knuckle ride all the way over. I was fine, I could go back to driving and not have to worry. It seemed this one would just blow over. On the way back to the house that night my mother was following me in her car since we met up after she got off work.

To this day I dont understand why I took the way home. It sent me three miles out of my way and took longer, but I turned down a winding hilly road. I was approaching the bottom of a blind hill corner when I slamed on the brakes. I slid to a stop about four yards from a car that was overturned in the road. If I hadnt stoped I would have hit them. Apparently they had crashed just few moments before we had gotten there. The accident was horrible. There was 4 teenagers who had been drinking. Two of them were alright, one had some internal injuries, but one girl the youngest (her name was …) was thrown thru the windshield and was laying in the road.

I took my coat off and covered her up, to keep her warm. We called the cops and got everyone to sit down and calm down. I watched her take her last breath on that road, waiting for the ambulance to show up. The only comforting part was I somehow knew her grandmother was there sitting next to me talking to us. The only thing I regret was not being able to do something more for her. I have a feeling I was there to show her some amount of comfort, but it really doesnt feel like enough now sitting here in my dining room three years later.

  1. Scott 2015-03-17


    I’ve been having, over the years what I guess are premonitions. When I’m awake anytime of the day all of a sudden I’ll get cold chills running down my whole body and I turn white and start crying, and it usually lasts about 5-10 min.

    Then within a week a close friend or family member passes away.

    Just over a week ago I suddenly had a 30 min episode of being upset; then by the weekend I got a call saying a old school friend was tragically killed in a motor bike accident.

    Anyone have any feedback please?

      Hi Scott

      First of all I hope you are able to cope with these premonitions. Of course, they may be a coincidence but from what you’re saying there is definitely some timing happening here.

      What would be interesting to know is whether you ever cry or want to cry in this manner and nothing tragic happens?

      I believe we have free will and therefore the future – even if it is happening simultaneously with the now – is not preordained. So, is it possible for someone like you to sense when these T junctions occur, and the person decides not to die.

      Am I making myself perfectly unclear Scott?

      Hope not.

        Hi Scott, I echo Rosemary’s hope that you can cope with these events.

        From my study of many reports of premonitions, prophetic dreams and similar phenomena, I have come to the conclusion that they fall into three main categories. Some are simply the mind during dreams trying to make a jigsaw of events, possibly stories read or films seen, maybe not even recently but forgotten from short term memory, so that they appear to make a believable scenario to the person having the experience.

        Others seem to be more like a “crossed wires” phenomenon when the person simply picks up vibrations, like an impending earthquake for example, not specific to the person experiencing the dream and often common to many folk at the same time.

        Then, there is the kind of premonition that you are experiencing.

        It may indeed be that somehow you are sensitive to fluctuation in space time, for want of a better description of a phenomenon regularly reported but at this point in time, not verifiable.

        As Rosemary said, we have free will and what would appear to be already planned, can be changed before it comes to pass. Should you tell the other people involved in your premonition? That depends on the seriousness of the future event and if you think the person could cope with the news.

        If it is very serious like a death by natural causes, I would caution you to say nothing. If an accident or other strange event, I would perhaps approach the person in a jokey sort of way, something like, I had a weird dream, perhaps not mentioning that it was about the actual person but it would leave an impression in their mind so that if a similar situation occurred, they would perhaps subconsciously remember and maybe avoid what you thought might happen.

        You must be a very sensitive person to react emotionally to your experiences and I hope it doesn’t distress you too much. Perhaps writing down these happenings as soon as you can to get the best accuracy and having kept a record, check back at intervals to see how many actually come to fruition, how soon and how close to your premonitions.

        Blessings. Anne.

    My brother, I was told by a medium, is ‘gifted’…

    When he was about 20 months old there were 2 incidents that happened where he basically saved me from harm or worse by suddenly reacting in a way that made me move away from the spot I stood. As soon as I moved the snow fell off the roof and piled up at the back door; it would have harmed me..

    Again down on the harbour watching the waves when he went off in that way again and as I moved away from the slope/sea wall, a huge wave hit the back of the wall right where I stood.

    If I hadnt moved I would have been dragged into the sea and well.. who knows! THE POINT IM GETTING TO…

    He told me just last night (17/12/13) age nearly 18, that he had a vision unlike any other he has had upto that moment.

    The vision was about me and he got a date with it, ‘saturday 21st’ and he said the feeling he got with it was worse than grief. He said he felt like I had died, he told me he believes that he had a vision of me dying on saturday 21, just 3 days away!!!

    I need help! can anyone tell me would i should do or if i should believe it?? I have 3 children ages 11, 6, 4 and my main worry is them. Im scared! :((

    • Rosemary Breen 2013-12-21

      Gemma, I can understand you being scared but as Im removed from the situation let me throw my insights your way.

      First, there are many Saturday 21st coming, not just the one tomorrow.

      Second, your brother had what may be a premonition but it has been delivered in a way that is different to the two incidences you were involved in in childhood.

      Third, I believe our lives are not pre-ordained. What do you think? Do you have free will to decide when you will die and in what circumstances? If indeed, tomorrow is your day, could it be that this is the day that you, your children and their father decided upon before any of you were born? As a mother, I would find this very hard to bear, but is it possible that should you pass over tomorrow (and I dont believe this will happen) there is a higher purpose to this happening that is for the highest good of you and those you love?

      So many people write to me abut premonitions Gemma; most of them dont come true. Some people go on public record after the event; unfortunately this doesnt help the case for the existence of premonitions. Others have premonitions and dont know what to do with them. In your case your brother loves you enough to go out on a limb; in doing so he has confided in you and covered his backside.

      Now the question is for you; do you want to live tomorrow and every Sat 21st as if it was your last? If you do then what shall it be? A routine day? A day that includes your brother? Or something else?

      I shall never know if my intuition is right on this Gemma but I hope my pragmatic response goes some way to balancing out your brother’s inkling.
