Intuition or premonition of a death?

Intuition or premonition of a death?

An intuition or a premonition? I’ve always had an intuition about things. A few years ago, I had a dream about my cousin. In my dream she passed away and I saw her funeral. I told her about the dream. She looked at me, but she wasn’t surprised.

About a month later, we were arranging her daughter’s surprise baby shower. I talked to her on the phone on my way home from work. A half hour later she was dead from a massive heart attack. I felt so guilty because I told her to go to the doctor and she didn’t go.

I had a similar dream about my grandmother, but I kept that dream to myself. I had so many dreams that have come true, it’s scary.

Intuition or premonition?

Premonition = Future Event. Clairvoyance. In my opinion, this story tells of a premonition of a future event. A cousin’s death and funeral were seen in a dream, and the story’s author writes of a similar dream involving her grandmother. Premonitions — visions of a future event — often come in dreams when our busy minds have gone still and are most receptive.

Intuition = Immediate Insight. Instinctive. By definition, intuition refers to an immediate insight without using conscious reasoning. Is it possible the author knew of risky lifestyle behaviors, did she subconsciously sense subtle physical signs of an impending heart attack that then formed a dream story of her cousin’s death? Possible, I guess.

NOTE:  My thesaurus mixes intuition, instinct, clairvoyance, sixth sense so I guess the lines are a bit interpretive. That said, I’ll go with Future v. Immediate.

Asian ghost appears to young teen.

Asian ghost appears to young teen.

I’ve always had weird experiences as a kid, some I can remember and some I can’t.… When I was a young teenager, about 13 years old, I had a “girlfriend” who I was absolutely obsessed with, and she with me. We would spend hours on the phone which lasted into the wee hours of the night. Naturally this drove my parents nuts. Back then, if you were on the phone, anyone calling the house would just get a busy signal; no answering machines. It got so bad that my parents pulled the landlines from all the phones and hid them for about a week. I remember I had a really hard time sleeping that week because I was so used to staying up and taking about nothing with my girlfriend.

At this time, me and my brother shared a room. Our beds were arranged to be perpendicular to each other. The foot of my bed was closest to his bed and the window was on the right side of my bed with the door to our room on the left side. As I laid there and looked over to my brother, I remember being jealous that he was sound asleep and here I was wide awake.

An Asian ghost appears. “His entire body was transparent. But then he slowly started filling up with color.”

It was a hot summer night and we didn’t have air conditioning so the window was wide open. As I was staring at his bed, I suddenly felt a light breeze. I remember thinking it was weird because there had not been a single breeze all night. As I turned to look at the window I saw what resembled a transparent head flying into the room. It made its way over to the door. It was so transparent that I wasn’t sure what it was right away. As I turned my head and focused on the door, a man started to appear.

At first, body started to appear and seemed to grow from the head. His entire body was transparent. But then he slowly started filling up with color. I remember he was wearing a yellow tank top. As he became more clear and his face started to come into view, I could see his strong cheek bones and a long sharp jawline. I could tell he was Asian. It took me a few seconds (which seemed like forever) for my body to be able to move. As soon as I was able able move, I jumped out of my bed and right into my little brother’s bed. I looked over to the door but it was gone. I was still terrified and closed my eyes then slept in his bed for the rest of the night.

“I was going to tell my parents about what had happened, but my mother got a call and went berserk.”

The next day I didn’t tell anyone. Later that week, my parents decided to hook the phones back on. I remember I was going to tell my parents about what had happened, but my mother got a call and went berserk. Her dad had passed away and they weren’t able to get a hold of us because my parents had detached the phone lines. She was so angry at me because she blamed me for having to disconnect our phones. I felt guilty but was also angry because I refused to believe it was my fault, so we stopped taking for a few days. I just never brought it up because I figured the death of my grandfather overshadowed my experience.

We had come to the states as refugees (from Laos) for 14 years at this point, but her parents had decided to stay in the old country. It cost a lot of money to make a long distance call back then, so my mother and her family did not talk much which made it even harder for her when he passed.

“It felt very real and I remember it very clearly even to this day.”

Years later, my mother’s mom (my grandmother) and her brothers (my uncles) and their families finally made the move to the States. My very first meeting with one of the uncles sort of shocked me. He looked very similar to the apparition that I had seen in my room that hot summer night. That jogged my memory which I then finally told my parents the story. They weren’t sure what to make of it and to this day believe that I imagined it. But it felt very real and I remember it very clearly even to this day.

“Grandfather’s ghost appears in a youthful form.”

I often wonder/speculate if it was my grandfather in his youth form that appeared to me the night he died.

Premonition Dreams of Black Dogs, a Black Figure, a Best Friend

Premonition dreams—for some scary reason, they came true.

Premonition dreams of black dogs, a black figure, and the best friend I ever had.

This is going to be quite long, but I am willing to swear it is true.

I grew up in a very superstitious family that believes in witches, vampires, guardian angels, etc. However, I never cared about those things. I thought they were products of our ancestors’ imagination and only served for entertainment.

Despite the fact that I was told I have a guardian angel and that I had a strange birth, I just could care less. But things kept getting weirder as I grew up. I kept getting weird dreams that were out of this world and for some scary reasons, they came true. I couldn’t remember clearly all the dreams because I had forced myself to not remember them due to fear—but a few still haunt me.

Premonition Dreams of Black Dogs.

One of them was that I had envisioned the death of two people I had never known until the day of their funeral. In my dream, two or maybe three black dogs came to my window and told me about two souls being tied to a pole near the road I had taken to school everyday. They led me to them and I saw a woman and a man being tied to a pole with a pile of wood underneath them. They were crying for help, crying for me to help them. The black dogs told me they needed help. I didn’t remember what I said but when I woke up I ignored the dream.

Then I heard from one kid I had talked to only once that her brother had died in a moto accident on the road I had taken to school. And after the funeral, I heard that a long, long distant relative of mine (never heard of her before too) whose mother lived on the road I had taken to school died in a car accident.

I also kept seeing black dogs on my way to school after that.

Dreams warn of hard times to come.

The next dream was about a teacher of mine. I dreamt that he would leave us soon. Before he left, he pulled a dollar bill from his pocket with the number five written repeatedly on it. He told me everything would change soon and then he left.

A few months after the dream, he did leave and my life had taken a turn for the worse. Despite that, I never actually got harmed or even sank to the bottom and I still don’t know why. I was doomed to fail and everyone knew it, but I kept getting lucky.

A lifelong friendship was simply a dream.

This last dream is very close to me and I had been seeking answers for so long. I dreamt of the boy I had met in lower school. For some weird reason everything I dreamt about him came true.

I remembered him wearing a blue shirt and working with children and guess what? He somehow decided to volunteer in a children’s NGO and posted a picture there with a blue shirt on. I dreamt that we never talked and in real life we never did. However, one night I dreamt that he left but somehow he promised me that he would come back. To my surprise he did leave, but he never said anything because we weren’t friends. Years later, I saw him on a social media post. He was sitting at the exact same spot I had been. We were back to back but none of us recognized one another.

“He was the closest friend I ever had even though he was a dream.”

The difference between the guy in my dream and the guy in real life is that even when the boy left, the boy in my dreams never left. In my dreams, he grew up with me. I dreamt the entire scenario of our lives, our ups and our downs and until we went to college. He was the closest friend I ever had even though he was a dream.

But our story was tragic because the last dream I had of him was him being the villain. After realizing he had been trying to shoot me, he threw away the gun and ran away. I tried running after him, but I never caught up with him so I just sat on a pile of rocks and waited until I woke up. To this day, I never dreamt of him again.

Was he a vision like other dreams I had? It didn’t make sense. I had lived half of my life with him before it all ended. Never had such dreams lasted for years until the entire story played out. I kept visiting the guy’s timeline because I missed the “him” in my dreams but the two had the same name, same background, same childhood but they did not look alike.

Premonition dreams. “My dreams messed with my mind.”

I remembered praying for the first time at a temple and I prayed for answers regarding that dream. When I was walking away, a man with a lost look on his face appeared out of nowhere and said, “It is no use clinging to the past for it won’t help you grow into something you are meant to be in the future.”

I used to ignore everything but sometimes I thought maybe he was right. I might not have answers for everything that had happened to me, but there is no use hanging on to them. Still, I grew to hate it. I grew to hate my dreams because they messed with my mind and realities so much that nowadays I dreamt less. My dreams became a bit more “normal”.

“I kept seeing things, people and animals that had died.”

Apart from my dreams I kept seeing things, people and animals that had died. It also affected other people close to me. For example, one lady called me but I was too lazy to answer her, yet she still heard me answering quite clearly, so she continued talking to me. Someone or something had decided to answer her for me.

A big black figure protects home and family.

A group of Vietnamese beggars tried to rob our house when I was a baby. When they tried to walk past me all of them tumbled down the stairs before they could do harm. They all ran away screaming about some big black figure pushing them down the steps. I refused to accept all of this.

“I knew they existed no matter how many times I tried to avoid them.”

I refused to believe what I saw and the weird things that my mom told me about myself when I was younger. I told myself she was just making things up to tease me because I was the only one who doesn’t believe in such things. But I saw and heard them myself so I knew they existed no matter how many times I tried to avoid them. Still, I would try to ignore them cuz ignorance is bliss.

Scary Dreams Shared by Sisters

Scary Dreams Shared by Sisters

I dream vividly most of the time and I have had disturbing, fearful, scary dreams every night for two weeks. However, I am not remembering details of the dreams, only that I am afraid or scared. I wake up, then turn on light in bedroom and go back to sleep after a few minutes.

“Two full weeks of disturbing, scary dreams.”

At the end of two weeks, my sister who lives in another state was in town visiting my parents and I told her I had not been sleeping well for the last two weeks and I mentioned my disturbing scary dreams. My sister, who does not believe in ghosts, told me the same thing! She said she seldom dreams or remembers the dreams but had been experiencing the same fear dream for two weeks also!

“Someone was in the house….”

We were both having dreams of fear as if someone was in the home that was an intruder, waking up afraid, scared. All the dreams are of waking up in the dream and feeling intense fear, someone in the house, not quite sure why the fear.

In one her dreams my sister saw an older man in the doorway of her bedroom and he was turning away to leave. He had grey hair with leg-o’-mutton (mutton chop) sideburns like Elvis or Civil War soldiers.

“I woke up again last night, scared…”

I woke up again last night, scared and turned on the light to go back to sleep. Two days later, my dreams stopped and I slept through the night. My sister had not commented on her dreams since and has gone back home to another state.

What are we seeing, hearing, feeling, that is in common? What could recurring fear dreams for two sisters in two separate states mean? Any comments would be wonderful. I am stumped.

— Donna in Ohio

***

Donna, thank you for sharing your story about recurring scary dreams shared with your sister. That you and your sister live in different U.S. states has nothing to do with your shared dreams, she could live on the other side of earth or the moon. The distance of space is a three-dimensional thought, which is where our bodies live. In my opinion, spirits and dreams live elsewhere. I wish I had more to offer.

Kids See Shadow Man

Kids See Shadow Man

There’s this “gift” that goes around in my family. It normally only happens to the females but my brother has had more of it than I have. So pretty much we can see and experience things that most people can’t. My mom says that we’re clairvoyant and sensitive to spirits and other stuff like that. With my grandmother, mother, brother and me all combined, we have some pretty interesting stories.

“… there was something under his bed …”

So this happened a long time ago, I was only about 6 or 7 while my brother was 5. My brother woke me up in the middle of the night saying that there was something under his bed, so I did what any big sister would do and told him to go back to sleep. He kept persisting that something was bothering him so I went under his bed to prove that everything was fine, and everything was fine. He was still scared and asked me to stay in his bedroom for the rest of the night. So I went and crawled in a chair next to his bed, and it wasn’t long before I was asleep again.

“My mom started screaming at the shadow figure as it started to come closer.”

This next part is just what I gathered from all my family members (because I was asleep). My brother still couldn’t go back to sleep so he just sat in his bed freaking out. Until he noticed something behind the TV in his room, he described it as a shadow figure peeking out from behind the TV stand. My brother started screaming and that’s when my mom came in, my mom saw the same thing that my brother did. My mom said she started screaming at the shadow figure as it started to come closer.

“She described it as a dark mass.”

As it got into the light my mom could see it better, she described it as a dark mass with devil-like horns and smoke where it’s legs should have been, but the smoke was rolling like a snake.

“My brother tried to run …”

My brother tried to run for the door, but that shadow thing was in the way. My mom tried to stop my brother from getting too close to the shadow figure, but the thing rolled back as my brother got closer, as if it wasn’t interested in my brother. My mom said it looked like it was going to get closer to her, but as my grandmother came into the room the thing kept going backwards, back into the dark corner where it came from. It hit the TV and when it did the TV started going crazy, playing different channels and going static, until finally it just started smoking and blew a gasket kind of.

Right after that both my grandmother and my mom said I looked towards them (with my eyes still closed) and said, “Don’t worry guys, it’s just the shadow man.” I have no memory of saying that or even the shadow thing, I was asleep through the whole thing, which is crazy because I’m a very light sleeper.

— Serenity in North Carolina

I’m always amazed that paranormal experiences (dreams, visions, ghost encounters, whatever) — like Kids See Shadow Man — linger in memory for decades.

Ghost Girl in the Tree

Ghost Girl in the Tree

As a 19-year-old in the early nineties, I worked as a nursing assistant at a local nursing home. One day in January 1993 when I was walking past one of the resident’s rooms I was stopped by the room’s occupant. She pointed to her window and said, “There. There’s a naked girl in the tree out there.”

“I told her everything is OK …”

Her window faced the woods behind the facility, which separated our grounds from the local university. Needless to say, I did not see anyone in the tree. I told her everything is OK and went about my duties.

Frantic and tearful … “Please get her down …”

The next day she was frantic and tearful. She kept saying, “Please go get that girl down from the tree! She’s naked and it’s cold! See, see, she’s right there in the tree! Please get her down and put some clothes on her!” The nurses had to medicate her and I put her in bed.

Searching the wood

Moving on to the next day, she called out to me and a co-worker and said, “You see, they are going to get her down.” There were several men behind the facility. I later found out that they were detectives searching the wood.

That night on the local news they announced that they found the body of a missing university student in those woods. She had gone missing two days prior. My heart sank! I began to wonder if the resident, who was diagnosed as having dementia, saw the ghost of that student.

Ghost girl in the tree

That event has stuck with me over the years and I can remember it like it was yesterday.

Danger Dressed in Black

Danger Dressed in Black

I dreamed the night, or the night before, (of) the daughter of a man I know. We (the daughter? and he) was going to the same school before many many years. I had many many years to talk with her. Her father last time I see him was before some months in a coffee shop during the COVID measures. The woman (the daughter?) was wearing black clothes and black high boots. She was in front of me. I talk to her and she didn’t reply.

That day at work I (was) informed about a deadly accident and (I) go with my colleague from the department (where) I work to investigate. He (a co-worker) fell while work(ing) from a big height and break his head. Blood everywhere around his head. He was her father.

Another premonition of danger

I had another experience at the middle of 2017. I see two faces, one had his face paint white and other was blond. Staring at me. Especially the white one. That week my dad get sick and died.

I just wanted to write somewhere about that.

— Hunter in Europe

I find the black and white imagery interesting — the woman dressed in black and white painted face both warning of danger and death. Hmmm …

I wonder if the dream was showing a future time when the daughter was dressed in black for her father’s funeral.

Premonition Dream about Birth and Death

Premonition Dream about Birth and Death

On 2/6/20, I had this very vivid premonition dream about birth and death …

I woke alone up in my bed. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. I reached down and touched my belly. I was pregnant and immediately knew it was my sister’s baby. I started to have cramps and recognized I was already ready to push (it would have been my 4th child). I called for my husband but no one was home.

“I delivered the baby.”

I remember feeling a deep sense of calm and peace. I delivered the baby. It was a beautiful baby girl, she came out smiling. In my dream, I looked at the clock because I knew my sister would want to know the time of birth it was 10:37am. I got out of bed to collect a towel and scissors to cut the cord.

“An overwhelming sense that someone died…”

This is where I got curious about where my family was … I looked out my daughter’s bedroom window which faces the front of the street. I saw my entire family walking into my driveway heading into the backyard. There was a priest there. I had an overwhelming sense that someone died. I raced to my bedroom window which faces the backyard and looked out. It was a funeral service in my backyard. I knew it was an immediate family member. Then I woke up and immediately called my sister to tell her.

On 2/28/20, my father passed away unexpectedly.

My sister found out she was pregnant in June with a due date of 2/21/21.

Many Voices on the Day I Died

The Day I Died

This is a story of death (or at least a near death experience) that happened to me many years ago. There was a time that I went through a very dark phase in my life. I let my negative thoughts consume me. I spent many days thinking of how I hated my life. Most days I would go to work, come home, lie down, and cry myself to sleep.

“I felt more awake than ever.”

One of these days in particular, was so surreal. I had a rough afternoon at work, came home, and flopped myself down on my bed. I remember closing my eyes, and starting to doze off. I had left my bedroom light off, but when I came to, there was a soft light in my room.

Many voices — but no one was there

My brain felt foggy, I knew I was sleeping, but at the same time felt more awake than ever. It was then that I noticed I was lying on the floor. I was supposed to be on my bed, but how did I end up on the floor? I heard soft sounds in the background and felt an overwhelming feeling of sadness. I observed that I also felt strange, as if I were not in control of my own body. Suddenly, I heard the noises again like a person was sobbing. I did not see anyone around me, and pulled myself nearer to the sound.

As I crawled on the floor my room was bigger than before and darker too. The crying sounds grew louder, and it felt as though I were at a wake. The ambience was somber and I did not know why I was there. All I knew was I kept crawling towards the source of the sound. The closer I moved towards the crying sounds, the louder and more disturbing they grew. There was no other person present but it sounded as though there were many voices.

Another chance

When I thought I had reached the sounds, I then heard a loud voice in my head. Unlike the wailing sounds I heard around me, this internal voice was firm and commanding. I clearly heard, “You better hurry up!” I felt my entire body shake and opened my eyes. I examined my surroundings and found myself back in my bed.

To this day, I cannot account for what happened. I’ve had nightmares, and lucid dreams, but this experience was very different. Since that day, the only thing I could understand from this was that I died or had a near-death experience and was given another chance.

Dream Predicts Sister’s Death and More

Dream Predicts Sister’s Death

I had a crazy weird dream, but what I remember most was a little Chihuahua type dog, but not a Chihuahua, circling around a water type grave refusing to come to me when I called.

I woke up totally distraught, crying very hard. That had never happened to me before. I went to my sister’s and told her and also told my niece. The very next morning I received a call telling me my sister (MY VERY DEAR SISTER), who I told about the dream had passed away. Her dog is a Chihuahua mix. I can’t tell you how horrible it feels.

Last week I had a dream where I was with my son’s girlfriend and an Asian lady says, “Oh, the baby will look like you and her.” Meaning Her and I.

Tonight I found out I’m going to be a grandma for the first time. But what troubles me is a dream I had around the same time. I can’t shake it. It’s about my son, and it’s not a good one. The same foreboding feeling! What do I do?

— Amy in USA

***

In my opinion, whether you tell someone about a premonition or not has no affect on the outcome. You can simply warn them to be careful, but what will be, will be. I believe premonitions are meant to prepare us for what is to come so we won’t be blindsided when it happens.
