Exactly. I always trust my instincts. When I was practising my driving with my stepdad a few weeks ago, I wanted to take the highway for some reason, but he told me to go down the street. I did, then when I was least expecting it, a stray dog who had been playing in a yard ran out and I was only be able to stop in time to not injure the dog badly, but he still flew across the road. When my folks went down that road a week or so later, the dog was fine.

I get feelings like that too. I will be driving home and have a strong urge to take an alternate route home. Used to happen more when we lived farther way from my job. I've ignoored it a few times but never had anything happen, so maybe it's was just bordom. :Spaz:
I feel for you though, I have never hit an animal and I dread that ever happening. I'm so glad the dog was okay!
Proves we should pay attention to our gut though, right? :Spaz:

Id like to add a comment if I may.

I, like some people, also receive premonitions but are few and far between, my guide, however, tells me that these premonitions are not desgined to warn people about their futures or future events, as this could leave a devastating trail.

Premonitions are desgined to warn you as the person receiving them, and to prepare you for the aftermath. I have had quite a few premonitions about past events which have changed the world in some sectors. Obviously I wont dicuss these as I could just make up a past event and claim I had foreseen it.

Premonitions are normally a sneak preview of an event, or it could be completely symbolic.

Thanks

True, Mark.

Bluemooncat, yes we should. I do, usually, whether it's about a person or something else. I've had one very funny experience with my instincts. Back in 2005, late September, early October at the University of Michigan-Michigan State (American) football game, a bunch of my friends and I were saying who we thought would win. Bobby, one of my friends, said that he thought State would win. I said, "No, U of M will win, but it will be a close game." It was. When stuff like that happens, I don't really think about it, I just know it.

I had very much the same experience a few years back. While i cannot see or hear spirits(most of the time) I do know when there is energy in a room. But here is my story

My cousin had just found out she was pregnant. .. A few days later I had a dream that she was holding a baby boy in her arms ( could not see him) and he was wrapped in a purple blanket. My cousin looked sad. I kept that dream to myself obviously. a few weeks later, she miscarried. It was too early to tell what it was, but I refer to the baby as a he. I told her of the dream a few months later. ONe night a few months later I had a dream that my cousin was a little bit older and she had a little girl with red curly hair, blue eyes, kinda looked like Shirley Temple. I called her the next morning and told her. It turns out that she was in fact pregnant when I told her, but she did not know it yet. So , she went on to have a beautiful little girl with red curly hair, blue eyes that kinda looks like Shirley Temple. When Erin ( the baby) was about 9 months old, i had a dream that she fell down the stairs and died. I found out later that day that Erin had fallen off of her little walking thing and cracked her head pretty hard on the concrete patio. She was unconcious and they rushed her to the hospital. She is a perfectly fine 8 year old now. I dont understand why I have only had pre-cognative dreams with her.... I have not seen her since she was 3 years old. Any ideas?

And even though babies are kind of far ahead for my husband and I, I have been having dreams about our children. The oldest child is always a girl. I can describe down to a T what she looks like. I cant wait to find out in a few years if that pre-cognition is correct. :whee:

Steph, your story gave me chills!
I have no idea why you oly get "flashes" about your cousin's daughter. Maybe the two or you are just conected?
For my part, I have always known that I would never carry and give birth to a child. However I have always felt that I would have a "son" named Jonathan.
So who knows what can happen?

I've been on the "receiving end" of precog visions. I think that in everything you need to strike a balance. Sometimes you see things that are avoidable, sometimes you see things that are not avoidable.

Most of the things I foresee are mundane little "deja vu" moments. I will drive a different route almost every time I go somewhere depending on how I "feel" I should go and will occasionally change my mind in the middle of the chosen route to avoid an accident. There have been three "BIG" ones, though, and none of them have really been avoidable.

The first one was when I was about 15. I was at a youth group event with a couple friends. When we left, it had been snowing and sleeting and several freeways in the area (including the one we "needed" to take) were closed due to hazardous conditions. We wound up downtown in our local city. I saw that if we were to take the freeway that my friend was headed for, we'd be in an accident and likely die (I was SURE we were going to die... to the point that I was considering jumping out of the car and walking 20 miles home in a blizzard). I begged her to take an alternate route. She was from out of state and refused to go somewhere she didn't know where she was. Well, we got on the freeway and sure enough, went less than a mile and were involved in a HUGE multiple-vehicle pileup. We are lucky that we didn't die. The man in the first car we hit wasn't as lucky as we were. I sustained an injury that gives me grief to this day (I tore a muscle in my back) and the friend who was driving was never my friend again. I'm sure she was and is freaked out by how I saw the accident ahead of time.

The second, I dreamt every night for about six months that a close relative was going to die. Again, I tried to avert the tragedy and again was not successful. I begged the relative to perform an action that would have averted his death... without telling him WHY I wanted him to do what I wanted him to do. I know that he would have died even if I'd told him... so there was no reason to tell him.

The final one is when my father was in his final illness. He knew it was terminal. We were talking about death and he told me that he wasn't afraid of being dead... he knew where he was going and absolutely confident that he would get there. He was, however, afraid of the process of dying. When he said that, I kind of "blacked out" and had a vision of an angel coming to collect him from his body. I told him the facts of the vision without telling him that it had been a vision... sort of... "You don't need to worry. An angel will come to escort you Home and the process will be absolutely painless and easy for you." He saw the truth in my statement and was comforted. Would he have been as comforted as he was had I told him I'd seen it? I really don't think so. He was a very religious man and psychic abilities were best left unspoken about (though my gift comes from him and his father before him). If I'd told him that it was a vision it would have tainted the gift he and I were given that day.

I think that with every vision, you have to weigh the benefits against the risks and find the best balance you can. You will not always be right... but your goal should be for the emotional and physical wellbeing of the person that the vision is about. If you see a tragedy that can be averted, try to avert it. If you see a tragedy that cannot be averted... let it lie. If you are given a gift that will help someone... use your better judgment to pass that gift along in a way that it will be accepted and appreciated.

*shrug* There is a reason that the gift of sight is called a blessing and a curse. It's cost me many relationships when I've been imprudent about who I share it with... it's also helped me help others... the older and wiser I get (and lord knows I'm nowhere near "there" wherever "there" is), the easier it is for me to understand when and what to communicate that it is always used for the greater good.
