Precognition and Premonition- Can we really foresee the Future?

Precognition and Premonition

Precognition definition - Knowledge of an event before it occurs.

For thousands of years mankind has been foretelling the future. Kings and Queens have, throughout history, always had a seer or a Shaman by their side to tell them whether they will win a battle, or scry with mirrors or water to let them know who was the best match in marriage. Through dream interpretation or reading the cards they have foretold the future. But what does it mean exactly?

Precognition is the ability to see into the future. But how could this be possible? Surely the future is something Out There that hasn't happened yet.

Or is it? Quantum Physicists and Scientists have been studying different ideas for a while now, and some are beginning to believe that actually, instead of Time being in a straight line from this moment to the next, they now think that maybe it is actually all happened at once and we are just at a certain point within that time. Without going into the physics of it all, this means that when we look at the clock and it says 12 o-clock, we know that in 5 minutes it will be five past the hour. On the other hand, if Time has happened all at once, then, in theory we should be able to 'see' the past and the future if we could possibly make a machine that would allow us to tap into this 'Timescape'.

So why do we see the Future?

There have been many reports over the years, in newspapers and magazines, of people, usually well educated intelligent human beings, who have stated that they have seen the future. They not only claim to have seen future events, but have in fact written them down. Some people actually send these premonitions or precognitions to the Psychic Research Society, or even store them in their bank, to prove to the world that they were telling the truth. So, how can this be? And why doesn't it happen to everybody?

I believe that we can all do this. How many times have you thought about somebody, only to see them a few hours later? Maybe that is telepathy. Or is it?

That is just an example, but if we want to study this properly, then we have to rule out other ideas, whether they are psychic ideas or everyday occurrences. So, to predict seeing a friend we will say it is telepathy.

But what happens if you dream about an Earthquake taking place in Mexico, on the 5th of January 2012, and then it happened? How on earth would you explain that? Was it coincidence. Surely not, especially if you have the day and time exactly right.

No need for a Chrystal Ball!

De'ja vu.

The trouble is, unless you actually document your dreams, or even day dreams, when the incident occurs you may actually have de'ja vu. We have all had this occurrence at some time or another. We feel that we have been to a particular City or building before. In fact we are so certain, we then go on to believe it must involve reincarnation. We know we haven't visited that place in this lifetime, so therefore it must have happened in a previous lifetime. Scientists now believe that this happens because of how our brain works. Evidently if we see something for the first time, chemicals in the brain can actually make us 'see' it a second time. Therefore we believe that we have been there before.

But then again, that can only explain the fact that you think you recognise the place. It doesn't explain the fact that, how on earth did I know there was a room at the back of the building painted pink?! But I am getting off the subject!

Precognition or Imagination?

Unless this subject is studied more, we can only guess at how accurate it actually is. I know that, even though I am a sceptical person, and I am prone to dissecting every bit of information that I cannot understand, and even more so, making sure that it has a scientific explanation, I am aware of the fact that this has happened to me. A lot.

My Experiences.

Years ago, I fell asleep and went straight into a dream concerning an aeroplane. I remember sitting in one of the seats and being aware of the fact that everybody on board was speaking Russian. This was proved even more so by the fact that the passengers were all wearing Russian style hats. I remember looking out of the plane window and seeing a hot desert beneath me. Suddenly there was an almighty bang and, when I looked up I saw a fireball shooting towards me down the aisle of the plane. The heat hit me first, and in a panic, I woke up. After getting a drink of water, I went back to sleep, only to discover the fact that I was still in exactly the same place in the dream. I remember floating outside of the plane, I am not sure if I had been thrown out, or I was encountering an out of body experience. This was followed by a surreal episode of being inside a white marble room, with very bright glowing pillars surrounding me. The victims of the plane crash were sitting on chairs facing big white tables. It looked lovely and bright, but I couldn't see where the light was coming from. It was just like being in a startlingly pure light Cathedral. I remember seeing a man, who came up to me and said, 'You can go home now, you have helped them come over, thank you'. Was that Heaven? Who knows, that's another story. But then I woke. This was on a Wednesday night.

The following week I was watching TV, and to my horror, I saw on the News that an aeroplane had blown up over Syria. It was Russian, and all on board had been killed by a fireball that was caused by the explosion ripping through the plane. This was exactly a week after my dream.

Another time, me and my friend were waiting for a bus to take us to the next town. She was in a hurry, and I turned around and said 'I don't know why you are hurrying, the bus will break down up by that corner of the street, and we will have to wait for another one'. When the bus stopped and we boarded, my friend laughed and said, 'see? we are fine'. Next second, at the exact corner, the bus came to a grinding halt and we had to change buses! In fact this particular friend was extremely used to my premonitions and in the end, nothing I did or said surprised her!

My main dream or precognition that is just coming true!

This one is going to astound you. But it is totally and completely true to such an extent even I am gobsmacked!

For the last twenty years I have had a reacurring dream. This dream has been so dominant in my mind that twenty years ago, after dreaming over and over the same thing, I actually got the incident published in a psychic magazine. I even received a letter afterwards from a lady who relayed her own story to me concerning a similar dream.

In my dream I am travelling to a different Country in the UK. I wasn't sure whether I was heading towards Scotland or Wales. I am in a Coach and I know that the town or City I am going too, is going to become part of my life. I am never sure if I live there or are just visiting.

The town is by the ocean, and is dominated by a great Castle. To the left of the castle is the old part of town, mainly grey slate coloured buildings, and the new town was farther back. I am aware of visiting and staying with somebody, but I never see who it is. The town becomes so familiar to me that I know it as much as the town that I really live in. I know the streets, the layout of the Castle, and even the different events that go on. This dream has taken over my night for 20 years.

Recently my son has met a girl online. They have been 'dating' for about five months now. She has invited my son to stay with her, and it looks like they will eventually live together.

The town?

Caernarfon Gwynedd North Wales.

By the sea. Dominated by a Huge Castle! What more can I say? This is still the beginning. Is it the same place? Will it be the town that I have dreamt about for the last 20 years? Who knows. But I can't wait to find out!

Oh, I forgot to say, he will be travelling by coach!

So Where does this leave us?

In Einsteins Theory of Special Relativity, Einstein believed that time was not as human beings see it. He believed that time could be stretched or shrunk, all depending on whether you were going very fast or very slow. This was his main study into time travel. Einstein was sure that one day it would be physically possible to travel into the future or the past. Surely the only way that this is possible is if Time as we know it is completely wrong. We could travel backwards or forwards in time only if it had happened all at once. Of course there is the other theory that if we did travel through time, then we would not actually travel back to 'our' time, but another dimension that was either behind us, or in front of us in time. But once again, that's another story!

So taking into consideration all the details of scientists, and seers, scientists who study and only believe when they can see the proof in front of them, and seers who can actually see the future without any proof, where does this leave us?

All I can say is that, Time, like everything else in the Universe, is a strange and tantalising fact. The only problem is that we don't know what that fact is! Maybe one day we will find out. And that day will be wondrous indeed!

So, What do you think?

Is this just a coincidence? What about the plane crash? Or even the bus? These are just a few experiences that I have had. Maybe it is all in my mind. But can that be true of the many other people who have had this experience? Will we ever know the truth about Precognition.  I don't know.

Hi Nell, you sure do have some interesting dreams! I believe that really there is no such thing as linear time, and that everything is actually happening at the same time, but that we are generally just tuned into this particular point in the story. I think that quantum physics is already proving that what we regard as the real world is not as solid as we think it is. Dream on, lady!

Great one as usual Nell. What I can quickly remember, one thing that has often happened to me in my regular life is this: When I talk to somebody and there is a TV or a radio turned on in the background, sometimes when I say a sentence, I hear the main word from my sentence repeated immediately by someone on the TV or the radio. It really doesn't look like I notice it only because I just used it in my sentence. These words are sometimes not that usual.

Superb hub, Nell, and I wholeheartedly believe in various forms of precognition. There is so much we do not know, in addition to the parts of our minds that are asleep and unused, so to speak. You have had fascinating experiences, and I think we can all relate on a certain level. Nicely done!

Great hub, Nell! As an open minded skeptic myself, I know that strange, unexplainable things happen sometimes. Some say if science can't explain it, it does not exist but I believe we just don't have the capacity to know and explain it yet. We're getting there though.

We have many "odd" stories in our family too. A quick one that comes to mind is of the recurring dream variety. I dreamt I was in my van traveling backwards at increasing speed, constantly looking back through the rear windows trying to steer the metal beast. When I put the brakes on, the car would not stop.

After each dream occurrence, I questioned my husband about the brakes on my car. (I know nothing about car mechanics.) He said they were fairly new so not to worry. The dream continued to occur. One day while rotating my tires, he inspected the brakes and discovered an unusual problem with the rears. He said it was likely they would have failed. He fixed them and I never had the dream again.(Enter "Twilight Zone" theme song here.)LOL!

Hi Nell, This subject is captivating, being beyond our ability to understand (or some of us anyway). I'm scared of premonitions and always scared of some dreams. But what I realy wanted to say is that, in my opinion, time is not linear (if such thing as time IS at all). It probably had dimensions that we cannot yet imagine. Your article is mind stimulating. Voted up and rated.

Voted up and awesome, I do believe there is something to this too. One specific event was getting a niece of my husbands on my mind one evening and I even told him about it and my odd feeling of why this would be, I rarely saw her, she was thirteen and I was busy with two toddlers so you tell me why this would be? She was killed the very next day in front of her grandparent's house in a car accident. There have been other things but that stands out most since I have to wonder if I had listened to a voice could I have saved this from happening?

Hi Nell,there are no coincidences and I enjoy the fact that you share the subjects that intrigue us. The really big questions in life.Reading "Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch, and God is trying to explain to us that when we pass, we will instantly have leaps and bounds in our understanding, including the subject of space and time, which he says everything is happening now. I am probably less skeptical than you. I seem to have few boundaries in my imagination these days, cause I have finally chosen to let it be.Have learned the imagination is the key to our hearts and our hearts are the key to our souls and our souls connect to the spirits of other souls. Well you get the picture. Always great to see you on the hub, my friend.

How can we see the future if it has not yet happened? That is not possible...unless everything that ever was is, and everything that will ever be was. I don't want to believe in this sort of thing but have had similar dreams myself. Sometimes I think that I don't remember my dreams on purpose because, for a while there, too many of them were coming pretty close to true and it was weird.

Nell, I believe you have a gift. How else can you explain this phenomenal dream lasting twenty years. For a long time, i had a reoccurring dream, i was always on my way to work, and i would get lost, usually on a muddy road, sometimes i would finally find the hospital (where i worked ) but couldn't open the door. Go figure? I have every book written about Edgar Cayce, he also had the gift. Thank you for sharing. Very intriguing indeed.

Hm, I also thought that deja-vu is related to a past life (I'm a strong believer in reincarnation), however I've also read somewhere that it can happen when we are spaced out and tired. It's something to do with the lag in the brain to process what we see and give it back to us. The reincarnation explanation does seem more appealing to me :)

Btw, got goosebumps from your dream, it's hauntingly beautiful, especially if it's a precog kind of dream.

I usually tend to believe that everything has a scientific explanation, just to make sure I'm not drifting away from reality. However, my mother dreamed that I'll score 6.60 points out of 10 in sports class in highschool two days before the test. I remember I laughed as much as I laughed when I saw the scores two days later :) Anyway, this one and few other similar personal situations sometimes make me think that this could in fact be science that we don't understand yet.

That's too weird on the airplane, Nell! I have these experiences too but everyone always makes fun of mine. Oh well - I sometimes get the 'thing' right but then dream it happens to someone else. Like the time my friend's dog ate a mushroom and almost died - but I had the dream that MY dog ate something and was dying. It happened the very same day - wrong dog but right dream. I would make a lousy early warning person I guess! Great piece!

Hi Nell. This is a very interesting subject. I have often seen events occurring before they happened, usually concerning family members. The first time this happened to me it was quite startling. For instance, when one day my son said he was going out to play catch with his friends, I saw his lips swollen and bleeding. He came home about half an hour later with a swollen, bleeding upper lip because the football hit him in the mouth. I felt guilty that I did not warn him. Since then, I have learned to trust my instincts (or is it intuition?).

I also believe in reincarnation and know of several past lives and the people I was close to in those lives.

Have you read "Science of the Soul"? I have that book on my wish list. Till now science has seen life in a linear mode. It seems science is now rethinking about life and what many of us have known all along.

Great job on the subjects you brought up. Voted up and useful.

Phyllis Doyle 5 years ago from High desert of Nevada.

Nell, do you ever find yourself having to block (psychically) images/knowledge of coming events or what may have already happened in an unsolved crime, like a missing person?

In one such case (missing person) the case is not yet solved. There are several people in a forum discussing the case and what they think happened, who was involved and where the missing person can be found.

I know (this may be telepathic?) that one person involved in the discussion in the forum is not telling the truth and is mis-leading the others and is not who she says she is. I am staying out of the discussion because I would only add to the confusion.

The clairvoyant who is trying to help is being side tracked by the person who sought her help -- yet the clairvoyant is standing her ground on what she sees.

I think a discussion like that could really throw investigators off if they see the information coming through -- OR they could maybe see one more suspect in the discussion, namely the seeker. (Personally, I feel the seeker is actually the missing girl.)

How would you handle a situation like this? Stay out of it, or privately message the clairvoyant?

Hi, Phyllis, I did have one big psychic thing happen to me years ago, I will write about it one of these days, and I was right in everything said! I told loads of people and they said go to the police, I would have done, but they found the person before I got to the police station, as for the forum, which one is it? I was trying to find it, but not sure which one it is, I am fascinated now!

Hi, llias, thanks for reading it and commenting. I do totally understand where you are coming from. Back in the 80s I was sleeping one night, and all of a sudden I shot awake and heard a terrific noise. I felt as if the world was coming to an end. I couldn't breath. it took me a while to come around and when I did I looked out of the window. I was surprised to see that everything was as it should be. The next day I told a friend that I believed that there had been a nuclear explosion, in fact I thought it was near where I lived. it wasn't, it was Chernobyl! somehow in the quiet of the night, I had either 'heard' it, somehow, or as you did, I saw it coming, maybe one day we will understand why. This is one of the reasons why I am so interested in this subject, thanks again nell

I have had dreams which have come true within the day, inlcuding one about a girl reported missing on the news. I had a terrifying dream, where I saw her floating in the river. I told several people about this, before she was discovered the next day, in the river, exactly as in my dream. I have had other dreams, which have proven to be true. I think most people have had such experiences, although science does not recognise these experiences.

Hi, Muldanianman, that is really spooky, it is so similar to my experience with a little boy who went missing, I told everybody about the dream and the next day they found him in a gravel pit, which is where I said he would be, long story, but your story gave me shivers, it was so familiar, thanks again nell

Ha Ha well Nell A year ago I did a little experiment and in the last year I have met 25 to 30 different ones, and I have to say I am not a skeptic anymore. So yes I believe in what you're saying. Of course my christian friends were not happy about this, but fortunately I think this, and learning about all religions basically gave me a better understanding about the spirit world and God. I don't regret it, and kind of new you were as well. lol was just waiting to say so! lol Well great hub! :)

The science that you mentioned are just theories and they all lack the Grand Unified Theory, while the rules of quantum mechanics work for subatomic particles, they do not apply to larger formations. Einstein and the classical physicists sought a universal equation that would work for all facets of the universe’s creation.

I think that Deja Vu and Precognition are just radom events that just so happen to fit a current scenario. But if you factor in several billion people in the world some times the circumstances just fit.

Deja Vu could also be a result of the brain taking in information and then having a delayed processing time in some individuals. So in a fraction of a second the you don't realize that it looks familiar because you actually did see it but the processing makes it feel like it was a recalled memory of some greater time period than a fraction of a second.

As for time and time travel, I don't see how it is possible. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is just that Relative. He is also talking about Space and Time.

Real time travel would keep you in the same dimension and the same physical place. So the question to answer is where is the universe saved tick by tick that it would still exists when going back in time. Going into the future fits no real purpose. By definition the Future has happened.

String Theory has about a dozen dimensions so that it can account for things that can't be connected by other theories. It is like a highway that needs bridges to connect it as a useful roadway. So a bridge (a dimension) is added to fill the gap.

The better question is that if I am wrong about this and the scientists are correct, then what difference does it make to us here on Earth?

This is all very hard to explain but I definitely believe in it and it all goes hand in hand with belief in an afterlife. Even wrote a hub on that subject. Dying people often "see" others who have already died...but living people who are not near death also have visions. The weirdest experience that ever happened to me happened EXACTLY at the same time to my mother. We were up late talking and both of us "saw" a young woman sitting quietly in the room with us. Then poof...she was gone. We each described her perfectly to one another. She was a young Hispanic woman. We will never know for certain who she was, but we both had the idea that she was a child that had grown and one in whom we had been worried. This set our minds at ease. We felt that she was dead...but now OK and at peace and happy. So put me in your believer but scratching my head to understand camp. Voted up!

If one is Born Again the future is with Christ. He will direct our path. He does not tell us in life what is around the bend tomorrow. Faith in HIM and HIS written promises over 7,000 for His children is how we know of our future and it is good. We will have storms but we will get through them. We are not alone. We all have eternal life. We choose in this life where we will spend eternity. In Heaven or Hell. It is written. Keep your eyes on Christ. He is love and will never let us down. He is the only one that knows our future. We have the choice to choose where we will go when we pass or when Jesus returns. Which ever comes first Our souls go to heaven or hell for all of eternity. God gave many profits inspired words to write for all to know our future. Most prophecies have come to pass. Jesus is going to return soon. Alleluia!!! Get ready for Him. In Love and Peace

I began searching this topic because of occurrences that are taken place at my new place of employment. I not only feel I have been here but in several areas not just one. Today I was walking down a stepping stone path and can reflect these memories like I was here yesterday but yet have never seen this at all. I had even went as far as asking my mother during my youth have I ever been to this place. I have heard many (especially my grandmother) reflect on these occurrences being a warning. Does anyone know why I would be seeing several items or events unfold that feel like direct memories from a past that I know I have never visited?

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 5 years ago from England Author

Hi, Kathy, thanks for reading it, there are so many ideas out there that can explain this. The one that crops up the most is Deja'vu, which scientifically explained means that, somehow your brain 'sees' the place or object, then repeats it so quickly, you actually believe you have been there, or seen it before. This does make sense, however, in my case, and in many other people around the world, we actually dream of the place weeks or even months before it happens. This can't be Deja'Vu because the pattern doesn't fit in with the scientific reasoning. How this works, I have no idea, but as I have written, I dreamt of the place above, for about twenty years, and now my son has moved there! I won't know whether its exactly the same until I visit, but by the postcards and looking it up online, it certainly seems the same. I have experienced many other things like this over the years too. Maybe one day scientists will explain it, until then we can put it down to, seeing the future, or even 'seeing' back into a past life, hope this helps.

Nell, my precognitive dreams usually aren't as spot on as yours on the Russian plane, but one did turn out to be *sort of* a premonition of the tornado that hit my hometown. In my dream the "tornado" was an airliner coming from the southwest that crashed and tore up the same part of town struck by a tornado 12 hours later. (Tornadoes historically strike the southwest edge of a town first.)

Another time didn't involve a dream at all. At the time I was managing a club (bar/pub) located in the basement of a small town hotel. On the way to work one day I stopped at a store similar to Wal-Mart to buy some personal items, and on the way to check out there was a bin of purse-size flashlights (the kind that have a wrist loop) for $1 each. For no reason I could fathom at the time I bought TEN. Also, instead of leaving them in my car, I stashed them behind the bar. Several hours later when the club was full of people, a thunderstorm knocked out the power. It wasn't the kind of place with candles on the table, so we were in total darkness. While customers "flicked their Bics", I calmly handed each of the waitresses one of the flashlights and the rest we thumbtacked by the loops to the several support posts and over doorways. Not the same as regular lighting, but enough illumination that people could move around safely until the power came back on an hour or so later. When my boss asked what possessed me to buy so many flashlights that very day, all I could say was "I don't know...just seemed like a good idea at the time".

I and the Love of My Life did have, with minor variations, nearly the same precognitive dream one night that described the where and how he would die, but it wouldn't come to pass until 25+ years later and would take an entire hub to explain.

Hello Nell, This and all the comments following, was very interesting. Unfortunately, unless someone is very gifted (and even then) you can't know it was precognition until the event happens. Usually, all you can do is say " that was an odd though/dream." Only later can you connect the thought or dream. It continues to be a strange and (usually) wonderful world we live in with mysteries to explore and solve. This was a great hub!

Nell, I love your articles. You have a way of getting your point across from a very distant point of view, allowing your readers to take it all in with a grain of salt.

From what you explain here, it sounds like you have abilities to fortell the future, which most of the time is a great thing. I do believe that Science will eventually come to an agreement with spirituality and the world will understand the things we perceive. It's true that Deja Vu, Astral Projection, Orbs, Apparitions, and Clairvoyance have been labeled in the scientific world as having a reason for happening, but my question is... does that arrest the importance or possibility of its Spiritual counterpart? So what if there is something called Sleep Paralysis... does the fact that it has a physical explanation take away the spiritual journey of the soul? If so, how can they prove it?

I've always thought that our own Spirit Guides are very much alive in other dimensions, and who knows... maybe they're able to see us in the form of a Spirit guide as well. Maybe they're nothing but reincarnations we've had (or better said, are having) and that's the reason why we are so close to them, being able to communicate whenever our minds quiet down enough to make that connection possible. There are many "what if's" out there. I'm just throwing some of these at you, because I think you and I are on the same wavelength.

Thanks for this article. It's really amazing.

Manna in the wild profile image

Manna in the wild 4 years ago from Australia

Something one must consider always: Extraordinary claims demand extraordinary evidence. There is exactly zero extraordinary evidence to any extraordinary claim of backwards time travel. Now I do need to point out that a many-worlds theory could permit backward time travel, but ONLY if the reverse travel does not land in the same time-line. I am also aware of the maths involved with quantum physics being time-reversible. But that is not evidence of macroscopic time travel. Although relativity demands that time is part of space-time and as such can shrink and grow, this is in concert with space and backwards time travel is especially excluded by the finite upper limit of signalling. No signal can pass the speed of light (otherwise it means backwards time travel). Quantum effects like tunnelling only appear to involve time travel because of naïve explanations (when you consider the entire wave function nothing is especially amiss). To see into the future, you need to travel there first (very possible), and then send a signal back. (Not possible). OK - I also know that there is serious research to make a time-machine but that's limited by two major points. 1) return signals from the future could in theory only return to instants after the machine was turned on. 2) There is no working prototype. Until there is, there is no evidence of time travel. Even those pesky neutrinos that appeared to pass the speed of light actually behaved as per SR/GR. It was just a faulty cable.

The human brain is very capable of acquiring false memory and this can appear to the owner of the brain as premonition. In a world with trillions of events every day, coincidence not only can happen, it must happen, and with such a high number of events and our ability to communicate so fast, some extraordinary coincidences MUST happen. In fact if they did not, this would actually be really big news in the scientific community as it would undermine a fundamental property of statistics on random events.

I do believe there is a delay between unconscious human-brain-computation and actual concious awareness. In a sense this is really pre-cognition but it's only been measured for short times. (Not minutes - only second or sub second or thereabouts).

The only way that you could see into the future is to live in a delayed recording of the future. Then it would be possible for an event in that future to be dropped into the recording. This is actually how clicks and pops are removed from poor audio recordings. A click is read before it would be played, then the electronics insert a bit of dead-silence at the point where the click would be reproduced.

No - I am totally unconvinced of premonition or pre-cognition of any significant time and in the macro world. There is no evidence for it. Granted - weird stuff goes on at the quantum level but that is in my opinion most likely due to an incomplete theory.

Telepathy? A tiny chance there Nell as it's mildly plausible that one human brain could emit something that another could pick up, but again there is no evidence. Every single controlled experiment that removes all bias shows telepathy is not observed. The problem with any brain-wave theory for telepathy is the extraordinary weakness of the signals.

Great hub though Nell. I know there are a lot of people 100% convinced but not me. :-) At least from a pure scientific side. However, the artistic and imaginative side is perfectly happy to play in this sandpit. I really don't want to discourage it because sometimes, the path between two possibilities is only available via something impossible. Without that imagination and play, we would be severely limited. To that end, I know that some serious scientists and physicists no longer automatically dismiss some of these fringe ideas.

Hi Alicia, These experiences were very strange. I know that they can't be proved but never the less they still happened, hopefully one day scientists will come up with an explanation, thanks so much for reading, cheers nell

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 4 years ago from England Author

Hi Manna, thanks for the detailed explanation. I also love Quantum Physics, in fact it fascinates me. I totally understand what you are saying, and maybe you are right. Our brains do the strangest things sometimes, but saying that, I do know that these events happened. I am a person who would rather see the scientific side, so if there is a rational explanation then that's great. Scientists are looking into this sort of thing, in fact after watching Down the rabbit hole/what the bleep it seems that atoms are fascinating little things. They can be manipulated by thought, and various other methods, take the 'blessed water' scenario for example. The atoms changed shape because of 'good thoughts' I do believe that at this time scientists know as much as they can about time travel, and precognition. As you mentioned, the neutrinos didn't go faster than the speed of sound, which was quite disappointing, but maybe dark matter, or something else will explain it. There are scientists who believe in the 'all in one go' method of how the universe has happened. Maybe that's the answer. If everything has happened in 'one go' and not linear then precognition would be explainable. As for Telepathy, I know that works, how? I have no idea. All I know is that it has happened to me and various other people I know. That could be put down as saying, well, you know the person well so you know there moves, and when they will phone you, for example. I agree, but what about knowing you are going to see someone within the next few hours that you haven't seen for years? Thanks for your great explanations and thoughts, really interesting, thanks nell

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 4 years ago from England Author

I forgot to say that Telepathy isn't a good thing for studying. It has to be a random thought process, and can't be brought on by being in a lab. My gran was in her kitchen when she heard her son, my uncle scream mum, and she saw a bright light. Up until that point she was fine in fact having a laugh with the rest of her family. Yes she was worried about her son, he was a pilot in the war, so it goes without saying that she would worry, but this particular time she looked up, saw a bright light and distinctly heard her son yell mum. She knew before the knock on the door that he had died. She was inconsolable, so maybe it has to be something like that to get it to work.

Manna in the wild 4 years ago from Australia

Hi Nell, With "what about knowing you are going to see someone within the next few hours that you haven't seen for years?" It's extremely likely that the brain thinks about these events very often and promptly forgets them - just like a dream, but when that person shows up it cements the memory and seems like a huge coincidence or premonition- same story with the pilot.

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 4 years ago from England Author

Hi jirel, I think we have so many dreams and thoughts, its difficult to imagine which ones are real precognitions. I think the best idea is to write them down the second you get them and then check them against the facts later, obviously if it happens months later it could just be coincidence, but if its a few hours then I would think it is a precogntion, thanks for reading, cheers nell

Urban Healing profile image

Urban Healing 4 years ago from London

Dear Nell, excellent hub thank you! As a shamanic healer I believe that we are co-creators of reality. In other words time is just a concept that allows us to make sense of reality at the physical level (3rd dimension) but in fact doesn't exist. When I do healing I travel into various dimensions, alternate and paralel realities. It is possible to heal what we consider "past events" as well as "future ones". This can be done at a collective level by working with the collective conscious and the collective imaginary of an entire group of people, as well as at an individual level. For instance in 2009 was the 500 years aniversary of Henry VIII coronation, this celebration brought into the collective consciousness of not only the English people but of people across the world the energetic memory of what it was like to live in England during Tudor times. It was then possible to heal at a collective level a lot of karmic issues that were generated at that time. We won't change recorded history by doing this type of healing but we can change the consequences those events have created for our future.

Yes, I think science is fascinating too and that perhaps one day it will catch up to and be able to explain what at the moment is called ESP phenomena, but we should not be held back or constrained in our own abilities in order to comply with any kind of scientific model. Science should attempt to explain reality rather than reality having to restrict itself to what science can or cannot yet explain.

I constantly have dreams with strangers for example: last night I had a dream that I was in a military party and it was interrupted by cops shooting everyone. In the end, a cop and I were the only people to survive and I started to run because I knew he was going to kill me. I thought I got away but I looked behind me and saw him coming and I remember thinking "I don't want to run anymore so just wake up" and I woke up frightened.

My dreams always leave me confused. I was hoping you had an explanation lol.

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 4 years ago from England Author

Hi Isamar, it sounds like to me that there is someone who you trust suddenly acting untrustworthy. to dream about cops shooting you seems that as we are supposed to trust cops, then your mind is telling you that your friend who you trust is doing something behind your back. its the old 'stab in the back' syndrome, only in this case you see them as a cop. take a look at your friends, they are up to something! lol!

Hi Nell I believed it's not a coincidence because I myself have the same gift. I've been waken up from my dream several times doing the exact same thing at those very same nights. I also found a way from happening. For example, I dreamt one night that I got into a car accident with my husband and newborn one day. I remembered it so clearly that 3 days later we we're on our way shopping and my newborn started crying. My husband pulled over and let me go at the back sit to watch her. As I opened the door I saw my baby wearing the exact same outfit in my dream when we got into the accident and I felt sick to my stomach. I immediately told my husband to turn around and go back home. Off course I told him what happened when we got home. Anyway I pay closed attention to my precognition to prevent it from happening if I could. I know sometimes you just can't stop it from happening but still try. I'm on the same boat with you.

Hi Nell. Great hub. Voted up and interesting.

You mentioned déjà vu. I'm reminded of a remark by Yogi Berra, a famous American Baseball player, who is noted for his unusual sense of humor. Once when he had this type of experience, his comment was: This is déjà vu all over again!

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 4 years ago from England Author

Hi Larry, lol! when I first read this I thought you said Yogi bear! haha! yes deja vu is something that is strange, according to some sources its supposed to be one brain cell dying and another popping to life hence the double vision if you like, but I tend to disagree on that, well I would wouldn't I? haha! just to be awkward! some things do happen and we never really know what's true or not, glad you liked it and thanks as always, nell

Hi Nell, interesting work on an extremely interesting subject.. done well. Like you I have had recurring dreams, the walking in light and being sent back experience and several things that I have put down to the intuition of one who in their most relaxed state... and that 'relaxed' aspect is very relevant to different occurrences, I have learned to understand and accept. I'm sure we are all able to plug into our 'intuitive self' and do so with a similar ease as self hypnosis.

Like you, I also wrote on this on HP 3 years ago, though I also covered a thing that I called mind transferrance, where I was able to will an event that saved my life. Aren't we lucky to have such experiences that serve to make us more aware of our environment and our mortality.. Glad I read this work... thank you... take care.. PD

My premonitions are mostly about highly emotional events. My first recognized premonition came to me about my neighbor who would be forever changed. We were walking home down the street after seeing our children off on the morning school bus on a Friday. Her home was just a little farther beyond mine. I had a thought suddenly that was very memorable and clear and unemotional. I knew I had stop at my lawn and watch her walk away like a video recorder because somehow she would never be the same. I didn't think too much about this. On Saturday afternoon, my neighbor, her husband and children left a restaurant after having dinner. They drove out of the parking lot and onto the main busy road and within seconds where hit head-on by a drunk driver. Her side of the minivan was then also hit by a tow truck. My neighbor was hurt the worst of all the passengers. She was in a coma for months and now walks with a walker and will never work as a nurse again.

I've had many more. Another important premonition came to me about my daughter who was 11 at the time. She had a best friend since age 5 who she visited frequently and would also spend the night on sleepovers.

I dropped her off in the afternoon for a sleepover. As I drove away a thought came to me "what if she was sleeping at the house and there was a fire." This was not a panicked thought but another straight forward unemotional experience. I didn't give it a second thought and it was not a thought I had ever had or worried about before. The phone woke me at 2:30 a.m. It was the mother talking in a frantic voice telling me that everyone made it out of the house ok and were at the neighbors (this was winter time). The house was on fire and come and pick up my daughter there. A Christmas candle started the fire in the living room.

I caught a thief in the middle of the night 3:30 a.m. stealing out of my car because a voice in my head told me to get up about 45 mins. before the event. I've wondered how I can know about these things before they happen. Am I picking up on the intense emotional energy that surrounds it just before it happens?

Cathy 3 years ago

Hi there, interesting stories. I've had a number of things happen. The most recent big thing I'd love to understand why - for as long as I can remember I've often had a strong impulse to intentionally swerve my car when on fast A roads, I've seen myself do it numerous times and had to concentrate hard to focus on driving. It's not a dream, it's always while driving on a fast busy A road. I'm not suicidal and certainly never wanted an accident. I never saw the outcome, just me suddenly, intentionally turning the wheel and I knew I smashed the car. After 30 plus years of seeing this, it recently happened. My actions & the road were what I'd so often seen & yes, I wrote the car off. ( Central reservation was cable wire, I didn't see it, swerved suddenly to avoid motorbike the was all over the place ). Amazingly, I spun the car 900 degrees across 2 lanes and back again without hitting another car. This road was so busy I couldn't count to 2 without a car going past. Any thoughts much appreciated.

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author

Hi Cathy, that definitely sounds like you have had a warning for a long time. Obviously anybody driving a car would probably think something like this was going to happen at one stage or another, but yours was so definite, I do believe that somehow we either get a glimpse of the future, or in fact maybe everything we and everybody else has ever done is there, laid out like a giant map and sometimes we can glimpse our futures. Even in Quantum Physics it states that atoms shoot through time, back and forth, one part of the atom being in the present, and the electrons that circle the nucleus can be past or future, its something we don't know yet for certain, but it definitely makes sense, thanks for sharing your story, nell

That is not what deja vu is. I see people who use it to say they have been in certain places or cities before, but that is recall of some kind maybe in some sort of reincarnation scenario--but that is not deja vu. And I have heard others use it to say that an experience is like something else they experienced. But real Deja Vu is when you are in a moment and just for a second you know everything about how it happens as it is happening, you have actually somehow attained a memory of doing it before but for only a fraction of a second. I used to experience it as a child every now and then. And I have talked to others who experienced real deja vu and it might be something that happens more often in the early years

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author

Hi mickey, the real deja vu is actually an anomaly in the brain. scientists have proved that its something to do with how our cells work, they are always being made and dying in conjuntion with each other. Deja vu is just the word we use to show that we do have a memory that shouldn't be there as you say, sorry if I didn't make this clear.

My story:

One night I pulled up in front of the neighborhood bar. I always drove with my cell phone on my lap and soon as I grab my phone, I was in the bar (at this time I was unaware of what was happening)

Police came in to check for ID. One officer checked me , I didn't have my license but I had car keys. I had told them my license was supsended. They took me outside and told me they wasn't going to tow my truck but someone with license had to drive.

A friend of mine said he would drive and then I came to. I was sitting in the car looking straight ahead like I was in a daze but I was aware at this time of what had just happened. I hopped out the truck and told the people parked behind me what I just saw (so it can be recorded mentally) just in case it happened. I told them i was going to be blocked in and they was going to be blocked in and the police was going to come in the bar. I said Im going in to shake some hands but I wasn't staying.

I went in spoke to some people and left. When I pulled off a few blocks ahead I came to a red light. As I sat at the red light four police cars came in the opposite direction and ran the red light. I said I gotta see this and I made a u turn. By the time I got to the bar the spot where I was parked (which was now empty) and the car behind me was blocked in and the police that asked for my ID was walking into the bar.

I saw about 10-15 mins into the future. I do believe in energy and think that the phone somehow acted as conduit when I grabbed it

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author

That's an amazing story Mint, yes you may be right, but I believe it would have happened anyway without the phone, sometimes our brains leap forward and see these things, thanks for sharing your story, nell

Mint 3 years ago

Thanks Nell and you may be correct. I dont think its much of a mystery, my theory is our brain transmits a certain type of wave and energy that works much the same as a cell phone that receive signals from satellites and cell towers.

I also believe those waves are stronger when we are relaxed, meditating or sleep

If we could find a way to build this signal and make it stronger the effects would be phenominal.

Case and point:

I am an american and I remember my mother telling my sister to not let anyone get a hold of her hai. She would tell her dont leave her hair on a brush and make sure she burn it or flush it down the toilet. Also not to leave her clothes anywhere. Now when you think of VooDoo the stigma is that it is used in bad ways.

My point is just to point out that voodoo used peoples hair and belongings to transmit a strong signal to make things happen to them (good or bad)

They new back then what we have just learned; that we have DNA and energy that only belongs to us and the energy we have can be concentrated and built into a strong signal that can reach the person it belongs to the same as satellites are programmed to send signals to certain cell phones.

I believe whatever the signal is from the brain that travels that far (or maybe the future isn't too far ahead) or seperates the time and lets us see the future can be concentrated and made stronger so we could see the future more consistently and clearly.

Just my theory

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 3 years ago from England Author

Hi Mint, yes I agree with you about our brain waves, and I know what you mean about the hair etc, people believe that your aura is attached to your hair so therefore it can be influenced, it would be great if we could concentrate our energy to see these glimpses into the future, it would be amazing wouldn't it? thanks again for commenting, have a great week! nell

Hi Nell. Two years ago I read this hub and commented on it, a few times. Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, the conversation you and I had here came back to me and I could not remember on which hub it was. When I woke up this morning, it was not on my mind. Then just a few minutes ago, I found it right in front of me because Vellur had made a comment on it. So, is this precognition, premonition? Interesting it is.

I wonder -- if scientists are believing that maybe Time is not linear, and maybe intertwined and all at once, then maybe we can sometimes see into another time frame when we stumble upon them -- like looking in windows ...

Angel 2 years ago

I've had the ability to predict the future ever since I was little, and I have deja vu a lot.

I could be wrong, but I believe the earth goes in a cycle. (Dinosaurs roam, ancients built pyramids, you along with me are on this website posting things, world will end some day) then it repeats. The world will restart, dinosaurs will roam again, pyramids are built again, we're on here posting again, ...and so on. Why we have deja vu and why psychics can see the future could be because we're on a certain time line or time warp in which something happened before, and we have the familiar feeling like we saw it before because we have. because we have been here in one point of time. Now it's all coming back around.

Psychics can see the future to warn themselves and others to change something in this point of time so something bad won't happen again because it has happened once now it came back around.

I hope that makes sense?

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 2 years ago from England Author

avorodisa profile image

avorodisa 2 years ago from Russia

This is an exciting subject to talk about, and this only shows that we human beings don't know ourselves well enough. Personally I believe not everyone is able to see the "future", but in some individuals it is inborn. I am only sure time is more than just the ticking of the clock and the calendar. It may come in layers, or as you say, in a spiral form. If you untwist a spiral a little, you get waves. A wave is a frequency of light, sound and nuclear energy. So if you consider time from this point of view, you really understand that frequency or a wave length is the true measure of time. What if fortune-tellers just switch from one frequency to another to catch that "radio"-wave? Then, it's so huge, because we humans only notice time by looking at the clock, or sometimes the sky. Other wise we can't tell its passage, and it's a property of our subconscious mind not to notice time. Some say, there is no time, only change. Some say, time flows differently in different places on the Earth. Time did flow more slowly in the past. You can notice it by watching the paintings of William Turner, for example. He travelled a lot, and you can tell by his pictures he had a lot of time at his disposal, as with a lower speed he could longer observe things out of his carriage. Take a big city and a small mountain village. How does time flow there? Is it the same? No.

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 2 years ago from England Author

Hi avordisa, that's a really good point, yes back then time did seem to go slower, and I am sure its not just purely psychological. we won't ever really know I think the answers to these questions which is a shame because its an amazing subject, and so many things would make sense then if scientists could get even an inkling of what's going on out there, thanks so much for reading, nell

Angel 2 years ago

I'm not disagreeing with anyone. Know one knows for sure on anything, but maybe time seemed to go slower back then because there wasn't as much to do? If us modern people today just sit around, go to work, come home and watch black and white tv or no tv at all and listen to slow classic music, you'd think time is slow too. Right?

Time is like air, you can't see or smell it, but you know it's there.

In other words about time, everyday the Earth rotates around the sun the same way (sunrise, sunset, darkness, repeat).

Eventually the Earth will come to an end (could be billions of years from now) but it will eventually end. And when it does, like I said in my other post, Earth will go through the process of regenerating and we will all be here doing the exact same things. About people who have the gift to predict the future, they could be able to do that because if it already happened once before the earth regenerated this time around, they were blessed with that gift to try to warn victims of catastrophes and things that will affect many people throughout the world. Does that make any sense?

I mean there's got to be an explanation on how it's possible to see what hasn't happened yet. And come on, deja vu and the ability to see the future can't be a psychological reflection of your life because I've seen psychics predict things about to happen like what exactly will happen, who's involved, etc. and their predictions are 100% accurate. So how else is that possible?

Nell Rose profile image

Nell Rose 2 years ago from England Author

I totally agree with you Angel, there is definitely something going on that we just don't know yet, I wish someone would come up with an explanation, if they did they psychics wouldn't be laughed at, they would be taken seriously, as you said in your last comment, you have had the 'gift' if you like all your life, and yes so have I, but I hate it being called psychic, sounds like an old women with a towel draped round her head reading a crystal ball! lol! its science, simple as that, have a great day, nell

I spent 4 days riding my bike looking for her and when I saw her I knew I went up to her and honestly there was an instant chemistry and qhen I asked her about what I saw her wearing in the dream she told me she had the same outfit and honestly talking to her makes me just as happy I dont know qhat is to come but I know I was given a sign and I followed it.

Hi! Hope you all are fine and doing well.

I would like to share some thing with you all and get some meaning to all things that happened and happen to me.

In the year 2004 I lost my grandmother whom I loved more than my mother. I did not see her when she took her last breath, but I had plans to see her next day which was Sunday, but I got the news that she passed away on Saturday night. When she was alive she use to always tell me that when she dies I will have to come for her final journey and I had promised her that I will come. I am a Hindu girl and girls are not allowed to come at the place where the dead bodies are burnt. I did not go for the final journey, it was not that I had forgotten, but I went the next day to collect her left over bones, as in Hindus collecting the left over bones and putting them in the holy water Ganga is considered to be the a ritual and better way clearance for the dead person.

In the same week I got high temperature and I started seeing blood when I use to vomit, but there use to be no blood as per my family member. I started seeing my grandmother next to my bed and I use to tell her why did she go without seeing me. I was then hospitalized as the temperature had gone in my head. All test were done, but doctors were unable to find what was wrong, my WBC went low till 30000 and I started getting internal bleeding. It is that time I started seeing dead people around me, scary faces, I was unable to close my eyes even for a minute. I was moved to the ICU and was supposed to be moved to another hospital, but when I was in the ICU I started seeing all dead people walking around and I use to tell my parents but they thought I took my grandmothers death to my heart.

One night when I was in the ICU I tried to sleep, but there this one deas man who use to just try to come near me, at that time I saw my grandmother who started fighting with this man and asking to leave me and go right now otherwise she will do something wrong to him. she fought and fought till the time he left from there and then she came and sat next to me and I cried and told her why did she leave me, as I tried to touch her she just vanished.

Since that day I started seeing her everyday with my open eyes, one day I saw tried to sleep and I saw my body lying on the hospital bed and I had reached at a very beautiful place where it was full of colorful flowers , fresh air, and a tree where I saw my grandmother who is dead, my sister-in-laws mother who is dead and my Sister-in-laws German Sheppard dog who is also dead sitting under that tree. Seeing me my grandmother told it is not the time for you to come ...go back...go back...and then I just woke up on my bad as if i was pushed back into my body.

Since that day a very strange things started happening with me. I started seeing things that is going to death in family, birth in family, any trouble coming to my family members, I started telling my parents that someone is going to die..even male or female I use to tell that. I use to tell whether someone is going to become pregnant when and whether she will have a baby boy or girl. All this things i see is not in dreams, but with my open eye.

I saw my nephew getting some serious illness and I tld my sister-in-law and brother about it and within a months time he was diagnosed with Blood cancer. He is fine now and doing well by the grace of god.

I get the feeling of someone going to die, but I cannot see who that person is. My sister-in-laws close friend was not able to conceive for a very long time and my sister-in-law asked me just like that whether I can see something for her, on which i laughed and said I m not a future predictor . Immediately next while I was at work I saw that friend of my sister in law and saw her pregnant with about 8 months pregnancy.

This friend lives in Dubai and I was in the UK then when I saw that vision and I called my sister-in -law and i told her what i saw. Two days after that My sister-in-law called me and said that her friend has got pregnant.

I at time feel very sad and stressful when I see death or trouble coming and I cannot do anything..I dont know what to do....I have recently seen and felt a death coming and i know it is coming to take away someone who i know and close to me.

Please can this be stopped or can I use this as a way to help people...I dont know what is this....But I always have my grandmother near me.

Nell Rose 2 years ago from England Author

Hi Chanda, first of all let me say how sorry I am that you have lost your grandmother, that must have been so hard for you. It seems to me that you must have picked up a really bad virus that took you into hospital, and I am glad that you recovered. As for seeing your grandmother in the hospital and others, it could very well have been hallucinations caused by the really high temperature. But as you have seen her since I do believe that maybe when you were ill something opened your mind to being very psychic. this happens to many people. for the precognitions or seeing into the future and knowing things, I think that maybe one day it will go away as you get older, but while you still have these visions I would choose to either tell the people if you think it is good news, or if its bad and you know that you may be able to help then let them know. Otherwise I would keep them to yourself and let fate or life just go the way it has too. I don't know why this happens to some people, but I do believe its a gift. I am sure that one day you will 'see' something that can maybe help someone really well, until then write it all down in a book and keep a record. this will help you remember the visions and be able to look back and check to see how many came right. Just try to get on with your life, and if you see your grandmother again then I think that's a wonderful gift, just be careful what you say and who you say it too, and remember sometimes you may have a vision that is just imagination, by writing it down along with the 'true' ones you can find a balance and realise that not all of them were real, take care and come back if you want any more help, okay?

I usually see "moments of time" only seconds before they happen, short visions lasting only 2-5 seconds. They recently have increased and I would like to know "why & how" I have them.

Hi Lee, sorry I can only answer on here. Some people would say you have deja vu, a quick glimpse into the future, this could be caused by being psychic or even a medical problem in the brain, you should get your health checked out first, if its okay then you can accept it as psychic, and thats amazing! sorry there is no answer to it, not yet anyway, but I do believe scientists are actually looking into the phenomenon now, good luck and let me know how you get on, okay?

Nell, through my studies, research and experimentation into the subconscious mind I myself have learned how to experience psychic phenomena including precognition/premonitions which come true with 100% accuracy. I have also learned how to influence the future and manifest my desires using the power of thought and have also achieved telekinesis and mental time travel - on one occasion I accessed an entire music album twenty years before the band even went into the studio to record it and more recently, I've had a very high profile rock band release an album of my songs by creating the future using the power of thought. Again, I downloaded one of the songs seven years before the band had even been into the studio to record it (I actually accessed the completed product within two days of coming up with the idea and manifesting it). I have worked out through extensive research and experimentation how all this stuff works, it's real and it works like a charm and completely defies modern science. What I have achieved so far has absolutely stunned and baffled me but eventually made me realize that reality is not what we think it is.
