Last night, I wound down by watching the 9:00pm news in bed. About 9:30pm I got an intense feeling of what felt like an explosion. It was so intense, that I tried, and did feel it, a few more times to be sure that is what I was sensing. At this time I don’t hear an actual explosion or anything. I just felt it in my body. Of course my mind wanders as to “what could this mean?” I usually jump to the “worst case scenario” like war planes dropping bombs, or terrorist situations. I eventually settle myself down and fall asleep.
The next morning I woke up to the news that a bomb squad was called into our neighboring subdivision the night before because a kid from a local sports team found a package while out running through the neighborhoods during practice that afternoon, and brought it home. The parents thought it looked suspicious, called the police, and then the Bomb Squad was called in. Homes were evacuated as a precautionary and then the package was supposedly determined to be fireworks. It was later detonated in a field around 9:45pm causing the large explosion type sound that some neighbors claimed to have heard. (I was sleeping so I did not.)
I hate when this happens to me, the premonitions or visions. I never know how serious to take them or if they have something directly to do with me or my loved ones. For example, I’d never forgive myself if I got a premonition where I could be instrumental in saving lives and I didn’t act correctly or fast enough to do so.
Supposedly, premonitions are extremely common and can be realistic or symbolic. The word “Premonition” literally means “a forewarning.” Premonitions are about feelings, or senses, of nervous anxiety and gut feelings that something is about to happen. So, overall Premonitions are more about having a sense or a feeling of things to come. Premonitions can occur during both dreams and during an awaken state, though some would argue that premonitions happen while awake and precognition happens while sleeping. (We can save that discussion for another day.)
I struggle with premonitions because I don’t know how to interpret them or the feelings, signs and symbols that I get. They can make a person feel like they are going crazy!
Somewhere along the way, I remember hearing a short interview with John Edward (the Medium, not the politician) suggest that people jot the thoughts that pop into their head in a journal where they can keep track if those thoughts come true or not. (I’ve tried going online to look for the video and I can’t seem to find it. If anyone knows where to find it, please send me the link or add it in the comment section of this post.)
So after I am done with this post, I am taking a blank notebook. A notebook in which I am going to start keeping track of what pops into my head and when. And then hopefully circle back later to see if there was any truth to what I thought or to see how I interpreted the thought in comparison to the reality. We’ll see how much of my thoughts and predictions actually make it into the book. (Or which ones end up being correct.) I suppose only time will tell. I’ll keep you posted – MBH
UPDATE January 16, 2016
I wanted to give an update on the “prediction” journal that I started back in July of last year. I will honestly admit that I don’t write everything in there that I think of. I blame the business of life on that. (I even tried carrying the journal in my purse for awhile so that I always had it on me, but then I felt like it was just in the way.)
I went back to see how accurate I was on the predictions that I wrote down. As of right now, I notice that when my predictions are off, it is because I put my ego, or my thoughts on how things should be, into the prediction, and not just let things flow on their own. Now with that said, there are a ton of “predictions” that I wrote down that were 110% right on! – MBH
Looking back, I may have had premonitions as a child, but one of the times that I had such a dream or premonition was back in 2010, before I connected the dots on having intuitive abilities. It is unfortunate that I wasn’t able to explore the premonition deeper when I had it, though I am not sure that I would have been able to prevent the outcome. Today I am going to share an experience with you that I haven’t shared with anybody else before. Not even with my husband or the people who were affected by the incident.
Everybody dreams, though we don’t always remember what we dream about. Also, everybody has a certain degree of psychic ability but some are more heightened than others. A premonition is a strong feeling that something is about to happen and generally that “something” is unpleasant. Premonitions can happen in dreams, also known as a psychic dream. Though we don’t always remember our dreams details in psychic dreams tend to stick with us.
At the time that this took place, it was spring, and I was pregnant with my second child. I recall that I went to lay down to get some rest while my husband took our other child on an errand. I dozed off for what didn’t seem like very long and I awoke to a loud bang. One that jolted me out of bed and made my adrenaline start rushing. I associated the sound to an engine backfiring, but it seemed more loud and intense than that. Right before I woke, I recalled seeing a circle in my “dream” right before I heard the sound. I didn’t think much of it until a few days later.
A few days later, my brother-in-law lost a very good friend of his to suicide and unfortunately his friend’s method of suicide was a gun. I later put two and two together that the loud noise that had woke me was that of a gun going off. The “round” image that I saw was that of looking at the barrel of a gun at point blank. At the time, being so “green” and not even realizing that I had psychic abilities, I didn’t know how to interpret the information or what to do with it. Though I had the premonition, I didn’t know who it was for.
Have you ever had a Premonition or Psychic Dream?
