    No, God has my future in His hands and I trust Him.  We might miss some wonderful life learning opportunities if we didn't stumble about.

    Not only No! But heck no, would be afraid of missing 'the dance' if I knew what was ahead.

    No No No! Why try to see what might be, when you can be enjoying what is. God holds my past present and future in the palm of His Hand and whatever he dishes out to me is fine with me. I am His child and I am happy.

    Our understanding of the word "future" implies IMO that some elements are unknown and (at least look like they) can be influenced by your present actions.

    So I think you can not look into your future, because doing so would mean giving up your future.

    What, take all the excitement out of life?

    No I would not. Same reason I will not go to a physic. I don't want to know if anything bad is going to happen to me or my family. Now on the other hand when I was down and upset over a break-up I did go see a physic and all turned out well for me.

    No, because I like surprises.

    I think that would spoil the whole reason for living.

    We live to experience life, not just look at it.

    Yes..I have. I did not will it...It was fascinating ..then one realizes that such glimpse comes with tremendous responsibility.

    I would like to answer your question with a series of questions. Is it fair to assume one's life is set to be a certain way? Could it be possible that our futures are constantly changing? Do the choices we make daily create what our future is to be? I think that even if we were capable of looking into the future that it would be of limited usefulness. 

    The world is constantly changing. People are always making choices. These factors must be considered in what a look into the future would be like. I like the idea of seeing into the future. Although I doubt if it were possible how useful what was seen could be. Just an opinion though.

    abominari  - "to avert an omen" is the stuff of Greek-tragedy when attempting to defy fate.

    Not a chance! Doctor Emmit Brown has warned us already of the perils of knowing too much about our futures.

    I would answer your question with a "Yes" and "No".  Yes, as it would be good to mould my future, and what to avoid, etc.  I believe that with avoidance on things not to do, will guide me to a better future.  No, is because I do not want to know what and when things will happen, especially on bereavement within family members... no matter what I do, I don't think I can prepare myself to face that.

    Nope. As already mentioned.

    Who I have become in life is do to my experiences.  I may may not have gone through some of them had I known what was coming.  That would have made me a different person.

    Not a chance!!! I would not look, I love my life and although times can be tough, it is so wonderful when that light breaks through and things go right and good. I wna tot feel the surprise of the moment and not know it is coming. Great question, thanks!!

    Deep down, if there is any truth in clairvoyancy, then perhaps at times we've all wondered what the future might hold.Sometimes I feel though that" what will be will be" and that living  through life to the best of your abilities is all you can do;however I love suprises,so personally I wouldn't take it  unless it was a glimpse of a happy day and not too far into the future.If you were to see exactly how your life was destined to be,it might cause you to radically change how you lived life now and then maybe to the detriment of other members of your present family,possible missing out on adventures and good experiences of opportunities,that you would have naturally taken part in had you not been aware of what you've seen in the future.Trust in God,Faith,Mother Nature, Buddhism or anything else that gives you confidence of a fullfilled peaceful life:)
    P.S.My husband was once told by a clairvoyant who he would marry and many other things,that at the time he didn't take seriously and perhaps a little rude to the messenger!;however many years later,he was then reminded of the conversation and was shocked to realise of how many truths had been told!
    "What about you brightforyou,do you want to know about your successful future?"Great Question smile

    yes i would. Im a beliver and get my cards read constantly. I dont belive life is destined, you could change your future. Given that opportunity if one is having constant truble in their lifes and could possibly get help from a "gifted" person, why ta hell not?

    Nah, I'd be too scared of seeing something bad. What would be the point in living if you knew it ended up rubbish in the end. Also if you did see into the future surely, it wouldn't necessarily be the future as you'd end up changing the way you act because you knew what was coming

    don't want to get all "Master Po" on the question (for you younger readers, Master Po was the wise-teacher dude in the TV series 'Kung Fu' back in the 70s)

    But the thing is you do have a glimpse of your future.
    There is a saying, more a like a paraphrase of an older saying, "as it was in the past, so shall it be in the future".

    I try to accept that I create my own future. In order to do that I must examine my past, right up until this moment.
    Reality (I choose to believe) is made up of a zillion choices conscious or un-conscious. These choices range from matters of interpretation (i.e. 'what did she mean by that', 'why does he say such a mean thing'?) to what we project to the world, ('I am competent', I am intelligent').

    All choices, every day of our lives.
    The thing of it is, most of us get lazy and when it comes to today's 'choices'....we get all, "what the heck, I'll go with the same choices and decisions I made yesterday"

    But, since we are talking about decisions that we make, there is always a choice.
    So the most likely future is right there to see and at the same time, anything is possible.

    You cant help but not to, vision lies within us, deep. Planted in our minds and souls, are you listening to the sound without voice? One of gods many lessons, is simply remembering...

    may god bless you all, with understanding and compassion.
