Premonitions or psychic experiences – how do I know if I’m having them?
I’m in the middle of some Akashic Records training and the teacher mentioned recently that being involved in this type of work increases our intuitive abilities in other areas.
Well, after an experience I had this week I have to say I think she’s right!
The other night I was lying in bed ready for sleep and I had the strangest vision. A hooded figure appeared at my bedroom door (this is in my psychic eye, folks!) :-). The figure had no face, just a shadow where the face should be.
This figure stretched out its’ arm towards me and moved across the room as if on wheels, zipped ‘through’ the bed past me and disappeared behind my back. Even weirder, the figure was singing a song ‘Let’s talk about Death, baby’ to the tune of ‘Let’s Talk About Sex’.
Now I’ve had several doses of weird during my life (and plenty of people thinking I’m weird for the practices I’m involved with) – but this was pretty strange I have to say. I’ve had experiences of seeing hooded figures before, (see Angelic for details, but not quite like this).
Being me, I filed this experience away and thought no more about it, until…
My oldest girl was off school earlier this week with a cold. We backed out of our driveway and headed off to school as normal.
Not quite so normal, however.
As we were leaving the subdivision, I noticed a guy on one of those ride-on mowers where you have to stand upright to operate it.
Many people wear headphones when they cut the grass, after all it can be a long and monotonous job sometimes.
As I drove past this guy…
I had a flashback of the strange dream – music in the dream (headphones), the figure with no face (hoodie and mask) and moving as if on wheels towards me.
It was simultaneous. I jammed on the breaks and this guy mowing the grass on my right took an immediate left turn into the road straight in front of my car with myself and my daughter inside.
If I hadn’t hit the breaks I would have hit him.
It all clicked – as strange as it sounds and as strange a premonition as it was – there was my meaning!
I’m so glad that I had the flashback and braked when I did.
The 3 keys to becoming aware of premonitions and acting on them
Ultimately this premonition was very useful for me.
Sometimes we have feelings of deja vu or premonitions – how do we know whether to act on them – or not?
I believe that these 3 keys will help anyone make better use of their premonitions and precognitive experiences.
- Stay as present as you can in everyday life. Because I was present, I was able to match the vision with my present experience in a flash – and take action very quickly.
- Find a way to mentally or physically file away any strong premonitions or precognitive experiences you have. Either talk about them to yourself, jot them down or tell somebody understanding about them. This will help you to have them stick in your mind should you need them later.
- If the experience is very strong and somewhat unusual (as mine was) – ask for guidance about it or pray about it. (This was the part I didn’t think to do at the time, although I did tell someone else I was working with about the strange vision, which is why it stayed more present in my mind).
Have you had any premonitions that came true in ways that you can easily validate?
I’ve had really simple premonitions come about…for example on the way to a friends’ house several years ago now I became sure he had cut all his hair off. My partner at the time completely disagreed because this friend was so proud of his ‘mullet’ hair style. Yet I was right – when we got there – he had short hair!
It doesn’t have to be anything life-changing necessarily – discussing the experience of having premonitions can help you notice the conditions in which you received the premonition and sharpen your intuitive awareness, so it’s an excellent spiritual practice.
