What Are Premonitions?

Updated on April 2, 2013

by Christine B.

In parapsychology terms, premonitions are also referred to as precognition, future sight or second sight. It is a form of extrasensory perception. The process is the acquisition of information of events that are to come about in the future without the aid of using information that is available through standard sources. The most common source of precognition is dreams.

Many people who are gifted with precognition obtain their premonitions while in a dream state. They dream about an event that has not occurred yet, for instance, a plane crash. In the dream they are able to envision it all unfolding, and then remember every detail of it once they wake up. Days later they will read about or see the tragic event on a news program. Other psychics will see flashes of future events while they are wide awake.

A famous precognitive psychic during the 1960s was Jeane Dixon. She warned President John Kennedy that he would die in office. When he was assassinated in 1963 Dixon gained fame and public notoriety. She was also a close adviser to Richard Nixon and Nancy and Ronald Regan during their administrations.

My son is not famous, but there was a time in his youth when he used to dream about the events that would occur the next day. For weeks he would come home from school and tell me that he had dreamed the night before about everything that had occurred to him that day. He tells me now that he has “grown out of it” but I doubt that he really has. He is more liking blocking the visions because they began to make him nervous.

My dear friend and popular California Psychic, Nancy Bradley, is a clairvoyant. She makes predictions that come to pass on a regular basis. Nancy also does personal readings for people who see her in person and over the phone with great success. These people are invaluable assets to our lives if we can learn to believe in what they are trying to tell us.

So where do these premonitions come from? It is an accepted belief that there is a Universal Knowledge that is accessible to those who are gifted and have trained themselves to tap into it. Since time is something the living has “made up” in order to keep track of events in their lives, and it does not really exist, the future is as available as readily as the past and the present. The future is also not static, which means it can change based on how we react to what is happening in our “present.” That is why many psychics will say, “This will come to pass if events remain on the same path as they taking at the present time,” before they reveal their predictions. The future is always yours to change.

If you believe you have envisioned something that is about to take place in the future, here is a link to a website that has been dedicated to reporting and keeping a record of premonitions:
