Sometimes I Just Know

I'm a perfectly rational person - I've studied psychology, I'm training to be a teacher, I'm catholic, but I know things. Its not like seeing, more like searching and knowing. If I want to know an outcome I search my mind, I get two kinds of responses - a feeling of dead certainty which means yes whatever it is will happen or a vague excited feeling which means no - or there are other possibilities to explore.

Of course it doesn't always work, especially if is to do with me, but if it is about someone else I am nearly always right. Sometimes I don't get to choose,  I remember one night when I was young I just KNEW one of grandparents was going to die, I prayed and begged and pleaded and wept that night and the next day my grandfather had an aneurysm (he'd been perfectly healthy before) and he died on my birthday a few days later.

Sometimes I do dream things, I dreamt my grandmothers death, I actually saw Princess Diana's death and was shocked and frightened.

Some days I get an awful feeling and I know something is going to happen, and there is nothing I can do but wait.

A blessing and a curse, but its me - a part of me, although there have been times when I''ve wished I've never known.

This is very similar to me. I feel like its unreal even tho I know that it is. Studying psychology myself as well. I sometimes dream about things that happen, almost exactly like in my dream. Sometimes I just know. Literally I just know what's going to happen either in the next minute or it could be the next day etc... Sometimes I get scared because I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad, and also because I just can't controll it. Sometimes these things happen continuosly and sometimes nothing really happens for years. Sometimes I just get a feeling something good or bad will happen but nothing more. Sometime ill literaly get the emotions. I might feel sad and depressed and acctually cry but I don't know the reason, only to find out later on somethin bad happened. I also believe you can attract things, so sometimes I think maybe its not that I knew it but rather attracted it, however I can't apply this to when I acctualy know what exactly is going to happen. My latest 'experiment' is that usually the things I know will happen I keep to myself and I don't tell anyone untill it acctually happens. This time I have a strong feeling of a certain thing happening and I've told my friend, now I will just wait and see if it will happen or not. It won't help me much coz if it doesn't happen I cnt know for sure if it wudhave if I kept it to myself but I still want to see... I just feel like I'm crazy sometimes, if I do have something going on with me I'd like to controll it! But it just comes to me :/ I wonder if it could be just something that everyone feels sometimes, or if this is considered as having some kind of 'powers' as in something that not everyone has.

its not about being able to see the future. I have more of a knowing things will happen without any doubt. and sometimes I get those thoughts but if I get any little bit of doubt it doesn't happen.. never fails

I have the same thing but ive only seen the future ONCE and i wasn't dreaming it was like daydreaming but its like i couldn't help it for example if u hear a Loud noise u automatically look to it, its the same thing when the future came to me i was doing something else and it suddenly caught my eye and i don't think i was like forced to watch it but i was just so fascinated my eyes were basically glued to it. Anyway that only happend once BUT knowing things before they happen comes to me quite alot to me and when it tells me whats gonna happen its within 1 to 5 minute period its never been a month or day later or something also mine arent bad things there like petty things like i remember i was watching a UFC that is happening live and while im watching it my mind said the guy in the blue shorts is going to win by a head kick or by TKO and then he wins. That happens alot to me and ill be playing a game and my mind will tell me your going to lose this one. so ill do everything in my power to win but i just cant its like it is prophecy also when it tells me im going to win i try my best to lose and i still win. Its so weird because its not like it tells you and you just go on with you day, i get a feeling in the middle of my chest that it is going to happen no matter what i do or no matter how much i change things up and when it happens the feeling goes away.

I cAn relate to everything you said I still don't understand mines started off when I was young too around the time of my brother death I seen an dark shadow of an man figure he was tall and wore all black now that I'm older things haven't changed people say I'm crayzee because I hear voices or seeing things before it happened or having bad feelings about something and it comes true sometimes in my dream this maybe embarrassing to write I need some confirmation on why is this happening to me it's hard for me to explain hopefully I end up with answers

You are not crazy....I can relate. There are a lot of us, out here who are just like you. I even asked God, to take this away. If it is evil...I still have my Gifts, Now that, i'm older. I recognize that. You are special. Not everyone can say that.:)

You are not alone. I feel really sad and tears start to flow when I know something is going to happen. The feeling can last from 10min up to an hour. I don't know what or who but some one either comes close to death or dies with in 2 weeks of my feeling. These are usually friends or loved ones I know. My father gets those same feelings. I always try to tell my family so they know.

I am glad to hear that I am not alone, when I was younger. I quite often just. " knew" when something was going to happen always involving a family member or someone very close to my family, I might see. Something, or a word will come to my mind or I will get what I call a funny feeling. I am at a stage in my life now where I want to find out more, how to develop whatever it is, can anyone help me please

to the guy who says its evil, i dont understand why. im a Christian too, and i dont think its evil. we can tell little glimpses of the future, it sounds to me a little like the prophets. im not claiming to be a prophet, but im just saying i dont think its evil.

back on topic, i have this, though not as severe as most of you. for example, just now i was playing team fortress 2. a medic came up next to me, and i KNEW he was a spy. like, not a hunch, not "maybe he's a spy", but i knew he was one. he was. it was completely different from having a hunch confirmed, it was more like i had my ability confirmed, yet again. these little deja vu moments usually happen to me a lot around any time something important, goo or bad, happens to me.

btw - the guy was the man who built n ran the place till he died there - and the little girl was there visiting and she was playing with a ball and it went into a pond in the back and she drownd......

my sister in law likes to "use" me as a science experiment when she wants to do "spooky" stuff ...example - she wanted to go to some hospital ( i knew nothing about what she was talking about i was in the other room ) i told her about a little girl that died there and it was an accident and a man that walks around kinda wandering not really wanting to leave - she is shocked n walks in the room and is like omg!!! r u serious ....lets go - we go and i KNOW how to get there where to turn its pitch black in the middle of nowhere - i see it as if its daytime like nothing right - i dont understand how it works i kinda just go with it - BUT it scares me bc i KNOW something is there watching me trying to get me to do things i DO NOT want to do and it sits and waits ,,,,, toying with me - every once in a while itll show a few sec - like a shapeshifter,,,,, a kid one time a man another --- animals small fast .....i tell it its not welcome but it stays and follows me anyways ,,,,i dont like NOT having any answers or getting the run around whenever i try to get more info on it all ........idk but yeah - i understand how you guys feel.

You really feel this way too?

i have had this gift/curse since i can remember as well. i have the dreams, the deja-vu, the being able to feel what others feel by touch, the visions, hearing things before and during they were happening. i believe that it is GODS gift to us no matter how scarry it is to us. i have had five dreams of "the end" apocalypse and it scares me to pieces, i have had this awake and asleep. each time starting where it left off. i have seen my grandfather, my grandmother, three of my best friends and the list goes on die before they died. my children have this as well and strong as well as the rest of my family, just the women though, we i find very odd. are there any men who have been known with thisor it just us? anyway i too pray and pray and pray. i have signs, do any of you get signs? like all day everything will be sevens or i will ask in prayer for a answer to a important question and i will get mess on my answer machine or billboards or txt or tv really odd. i am hoping someone else gets this. and that it is a good thing not some bad thing. or do any of you have knowledge of things that you know you couldnt know or have learned? or do you you heal really fast, way faster and better than most? need to know if i am cursed or blessed. i hope and prey that this is a gift of GOD.

There are times that I want something to happen; I wish something specific would happen. Then weeks or months go by and it happens unexpectedly. Its not all the time but more times to be considered a coincidence. I can't explain it and maybe I don't want to know why!? The closest thing I can think of is the laws of attraction. Obviously this is different from what you have but it's not that far off. I guess some things are left to the unexplained.

I get the feeling that I can tell what people are going to say like a deja-vu but it don't feel like it a get real paranoid and scared cause of this I have to Change my phone background image all the time cause it feels like I've had it on there before I even put the image on can someone help its freaking me out. I don't want to tell any of my family I don't want them to think I'm going crazy. Should I see a therapist

I just want to understand... I don't want it gone completely. I just want to know when or how to shut it off. OH and most of these things are bad. OR what I consider bad. Sorry for all the talking. I just want you to understand so you could help me. I can always predict when tests or quizzes will be and I can understand people and their simple actions and their character to the extremes.

please, do you know or have figured anything about this, besides just dealing. I want to know how to control it. I dont know how. I can only shut it off by not thinking about anything. What triggers it? WHat can shut it off. For you anyways. I need help

Another example: I was thinking about this boy who I went 2 pre-school with--random-- and 3 weeks later he came back to school after 9 years. I thought about an old friend this year and she came back to school after 4 years. I thought about WHAT IF the neighbors dogs got out and killed all our chickens. Got home. Chickens dead with bloodied mouthed neighbor dog. WHAT IF we hit 2 deer on way to eastern Oregon. Hit 2 deer hour later. WHAT IF my friends got in a crash ( they were late and not yet to the dance where I waited for them) Came later because they hit a deer. I mean deer think coincidence- full moons-- but theres more. WHAT IF minks came back again like they did 5 years ago. NEWS--200 minks at a mink farm were set free by my house. WHAT if the new neighbors shot my best friend since birth's dog. Maggie was shot with BB gun. Theres been so much more. Help me. what triggers it. I have been using oils-young life oils that help balance a body natural aura. I don't dream or anything when I use them b4 bed. or my thinking.

For example I need my bestfriend since birth was gonna tell me something important and then I though WHAT IF ( key word to everything of my issue) she decided she liked girls, or WHAT IF she told me shes sucuidal. She had never shone any signs of anything like this. random. That day she told me both. Month later I was getting ready for school and thought " mabey I should txt her, somethings wrong" WHAT IF she hurt herself. (I was planning on telling her mom that day about her) and then my mom told me 2day she was in the hospital for overdoes on advil. self- inflicted. She has seriures and I predict most. I want to tell her about this but It always goes away when I tell someone, and probably will because of this right here.

I need answers or someone to talk to. I have always had deja-vu to the extreme and recently when I turned 15 in june this year things have gotten werid. I can count over 40 events that have happened. I think things and they happen. Totally random outta wack things and they happen. I thought mabey it was me doing this so I stopped thinking or trying not to think of life at all, and it has stopped for a few weeks. Whenever I tell someone of this or acknowledge it IT goes away for months. I have dreams of things that would happen and told a BFF and then It went away for 3 years. I'm afraid It will do this again and make me feel I am imagining it all over again. Is there any thing that triggers it, or stops it in general. Help I feel like its just in my head.

Deja-vu has happened to me all my life. My mother has it bad to, but it has been this year I have noticed things. I will think of something, completely random and later they happen. It has been every other few weeks, but has stopped. This year it different I have never experienced this to this extreme. I think things and they will happen. I got scared and thought possibly it was because I thought these things so I stopped thinking about life as much as possible. And now I havn't have this happen in a while. I can recall about 40 events like this that have started since I turned 15 this year in june. I don't know to do anything, but nothing. Is there anything we can do that triggers it or stops it? In my younger years I would have phases of when I could dream things and they would come true and when I though things. I told myself I just wanted to be cool and was imgaining it, but now I'm not. Whenever I have told my friends about this or even come to the conclusion of this IT goes away for months. Y is this? Ever happen to anyone else? I need help.. no one knows how. I just want answers or someone 2 talk to

yes i totally understand i usually know when something is going to happen or something has been said. I use to know when my sister was gonna have a seizure.. The day she passed i dreamed it while it was happening..it was thee most sadest day of my life..

I have this and I don't want it. It scares me to death. I see only bad things and usaually in re occurring dreams. They are usually about girlfriends but sometimes about myself and more often than not in precise detail. One of my worst nightmares just came true and it blew my mind and shocked me so bad I couldn't believe it myself. I am Christian and I have been warned about these visions, that they are evil. People don't believe me. Sometimes I don't either. Like I said, I don't want this curse.

I know, over half the things I think and then happen are bad.

I don't believe it's a curse. But I only have feelings and know when bad things will happen too. And I prayed to god for a gift when I was younger and got it so I don't believe it's bad.. but I also have so much deja vu about just random stuff

i have the same thing but mine are never bad things like if you read my comment i put up there only petty things honestly tho i wouldnt want them gone if i was you i would just pray that you get the bad ones only when you need it.

I believe that these messages come our way to help others by prayer. We can not change the outcome we can change how we react to these matters in a more positive way. But I believe such knowledge is given to us because people need our prayers. Learn how to pray for these individuals whether you know them or not. It is a Christian duty of charity. When I see unfamiliar faces presented before me interiorly I pray for them. When I see a beautiful scenery as if in a movie but I am fully present to it. I thank God for this gift because I would never of been able to view it otherwise. Sometimes I think that is a gift given from one I have prayed for. I know we all want answers and we all want to understand and harness such abilities. But we can't we must trust in God and not allow worry to estinguish the work of God's Holy Spirit. Sometimes a relative who has passed may send an insight to help you through a death. You never know unless The I JUST KNOW I just knew that before it was spoken by someone close to you I believe is reading someone's mind. There is so much I could say but what I really want to say is Don't worry Just Pray. I find that when I say even just One Our Father I am given peace from God. Don't dwell on these things there is really nothing you can do but Pray. If you know someone might pass away soon. You could remind them that it might be good to go to confession for the removal of their sins or ask a priest to give them the final blessing. I am Catholic and this is so important. Just pray otherwise. Can't say it enough. Also say a prayer for yourself for understanding these gifts.

I just passed through to this sight, I don't know but angryt what u posted is EXACTLY what I go through everyday almost, whatever abilities I have goes a step further. I know it sounds weird but I felt Michael Jackson's death 2 months before it happened. 2 weeks before one of my family members died I knew I was going to be hurt some kind of way, an emotional pain. I can have someone touch me and whatever they are going through I can feel those emotions. Last night some guy was so angry that it shook me up so bad because I felt a rage inside of him I've never felt in someone. Sometimes I don't like the gift, I've had it for years and still not used to it. I dream all the time, I don't believe I'm psychic because I'm not. It just seems so much because I'm scared to hug people at times or even bump them because I dont know what I might pick up. It's been like this for me since I can remember and I'm 21 now

I am 17 and for the last couple of years i have had the same experiences. I think it is because i am still a member of youth that my "feelings" or "dreams" are more focused on my life. But the really important ones that i always remember are the ones that have the people i care about involved.

I am 25 now and i use to be scared of knowing things befor they happen. but not anymore i believe its a gift from GOD and we are messengers.

I have the samething iv had it since i was 12 years old.

I have seen and known things my whole life. I know for me growing up, I sometimes felt crazy, until something happened to confirm to other people what I had said. My father is very psychically inclined as well. For me, I wish he had tried to help me understand better what it was that I was dealing with. I am now 25, with 2 young children, and have only recently gotten a decent grasp on the whole thing. To nikinnick: I personally don't think it would be a bad thing to try to help her understand. I do think it can be passed on to our children stronger, just judging from my own experiences. What I do with my kids when they experience something is try to draw on my experiences to help them understand. I hope you don't mind my suggestion, but you may be able to talk it out with her, get the details, and try to take steps to make sure her dad takes more caution while driving. I have actually had to do stuff like that. I hope that everything works out for the best.
