One of the great things about being human, is that we’re all unique and individual from one another, with no two of us being 100% alike.
Of course there are twins, and people that are startlingly alike, both in looks, and mannerisms, and even so, no two people are completely alike.
Unfortunately, as we’re all unique and different, some people may have a hard time accepting something that they don’t quite understand. Take precognition for example.
Many of you will be asking yourselves, “what is precognition” whilst a select few of you will already have a rough idea of what it is.
Human beings are miraculous creations (for the most part) and we actually have abilities and powers that we never thought possible.
Some of you will be shaking your heads and may think we’re talking nonsense, whilst others amongst you, typically those of you with much more open minds, may be intrigued and may even wish to learn more.
Psychokinesis, clairvoyance, and other psychic abilities all relate back to precognition in one way or the other, and all can be tapped into and recognised with a little practice and a little know-how.
Here we’ll be taking a look at what precognition is, how it works, the benefits it may present, and how we ourselves can actually develop it. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.
[BTW, if you’re interested in lucid dreaming, check this out]
What is precognition?
Precognition is sometimes referred to as second sight, and is a type of extra-sensory perception, allowing individuals to sense and see events before they have happened, as crazy as it sounds, it can almost be described as being able to see into the future.
It is in essence, a paranormal ability of sorts, with some individuals being far more susceptible to it than others.
More often than not, the visions experienced will be in that person’s sleep, which are known as precognitive dreams.
Precognition itself however, cannot be considered definitive, meaning that if a person were to experience a precognitive vision, the vision they saw is not guaranteed to happen.
Often, precognitive visions are warning signs, giving warning of what could come to pass unless various factors surrounding the event were to change.
As grim and morbid as this may sound, one example of precognition could be an overweight and unhealthy person experiencing a vision of themselves suffering from a heart attack, or contracting a weight and diet-related illness such as diabetes.
This vision would serve as a warning that if that person’s current dietary and lifestyle habits were to continue in this fashion, they could very well suffer from a heart attack, or become diabetic, or suffer from any number of other diet and weight-related illnesses.
Precognition is used normally as a collective term for a number of various foretellings of future events.
Some psychics who happen to have precognitive abilities will receive their information about future events via a process known as presentiment.
With presentiment, the psychic will experience visions based upon a number of different emotions regarding an individual or a certain event.
As an example, they may experience a great sense of fear with an individual, which could indicate that that person could be in danger of injuring themselves, or encountering a traumatic experience.
Clairvoyance is another form of precognition, which we’ll be taking a more in-depth look at right now.
What is clairvoyance?
As mentioned, clairvoyance is another form of precognition, though this form allows the clairvoyant to view images and events as a third party, from the eyes of another individual.
Clairvoyance allows psychics to see images which are hidden from sight. It is sometimes used in remote viewing, and it is often used to help locate lost objects, and even missing persons in some rare cases.
Premonition vs precognition
Another ability which is often associated with precognition, and one which is sometimes mistaken for precognition itself, is premonition.
Though very similar, these two abilities are unique from one another. We now know what precognition is, but how about premonition?
Well, premonition allows psychics to see future events before they’ve happened, just as precognition does.
Having a premonition can almost be described as having a waking dream or vision whilst completely awake.
Premonitions are also all about feelings and emotions, just as precognition is. Common feelings and emotions include nervousness, fear, and anxiety, perhaps a sense of dread that just won’t seem to go.
The main difference between the two is that one will work in an awakened state, whilst the other (precognition) works mainly whilst the person sleeps.
Other than that however, the two are very similar and there is little other difference between the two.
Precognitive dreams – What are they and will they definitely come true?
First off, not all dreams are guaranteed to be precognitive dreams, and some of them will simply be, well, dreams.
However, if a person were to experience a precognitive dream, that again does not guarantee that it will come true as generally, precognitive dreams serve as warnings, foretelling events that COULD happen if things don’t change.
Precognitive dreams can best be described as dreams which predict the future, or allow individuals to see into the future, without any existing knowledge which may have been acquired by normal, everyday means.
Some people mistakenly believe themselves to have experienced precognitive dreams in the past, when in reality there will have been a perfectly rational explanation.
For example, a woman may dream that she is pregnant, and a few weeks later she may discover that she is indeed pregnant.
This cannot be deemed as a psychic precognitive dream as the woman in question will have had plenty of unconscious insight.
For example, she may have missed her period, she may have stopped using contraception, and she may have been deliberately trying to conceive a child.
We will all experience similar dreams which express our innermost fears, worries, and hopes based upon information on an unconscious level that we could very well have been repressing.
For a dream to be deemed precognitive with roots of a paranormal nature, we would need to experience visions of the future, which we will have had no real knowledge of.
One example of this is the sinking of the world famous Titanic back in 1912. After the ship sank, hundreds upon hundreds of people came forward and reported that they had experienced psychic dreams of the ship sinking.
What is pretty amazing however, is that at least 19 of them could be validated. One example of this included a date-stamped letter.
How to develop our precognitive abilities
Some believe that deep down we all possess psychic abilities, with the only real difference being that some are more susceptible and in-tune with their abilities than others.
Second sight allows us to gain insight and psychic awareness of future events, or potential future events, via extra sensory perception, or ESP for short.
Sometimes known as a sixth sense, these visions and happenings are viewed in our mind’s eye, rather than through our physical eyes.
These powers and abilities will manifest themselves in a number of ways, including in dreams, in gut feelings and hunches, via intuition, or even via déjà vu, which pretty much all of you may have experienced at some point in the past.
You can however, heighten and increase your precognitive abilities in a number of ways.
These powers exist within us all on one level or another, and as a result, each one of us can begin to awaken them and really tap into them to make them more prominent and powerful.
Here we’ll be taking a look at a few things you can do which can and will help you to become more aware of your precognitive abilities.
Log your dreams
To begin with, many psychics, mediums, and other ESP experts all recommend keeping a dream journal and making a note of every single one of your dreams.
You don’t have to go into great detail, just log anything significant or anything that you think really stands out.
Logging your dreams will allow you to refer back and document and analyse certain patterns and chains of events.
Try to be more receptive
Your subconscious mind will send you a number of signs that could help direct you towards precognition, you just need to recognise them.
They could manifest themselves as thoughts, feelings, symbols, or even physical feelings. Make sure you’re receptive to them and that you pay close attention.
If you experience a gut feeling about something, don’t just brush it off, as it could be a warning or a sign.
Try to be as calm as possible
The reason why a lot of spiritualists, mediums, clairvoyants etc all tend to meditate and practice calming pastimes such as yoga, is the fact that the calmer your demeanour, the more receptive you will become to people’s emotional states surrounding you.
Stress, anger, fear, anxiety etc can all cloud your mind’s eye and can all make it much harder to recognise any potential psychic signals.
So there you have it, a beginner’s guide covering everything you need to know about precognition.
Obviously we could go into way more detail than that as precognition itself is one of the most fascinating subjects on the face of the earth.
We all have the ability to experience precognitive dreams and visions, the only difference is that some of us are more susceptible than others.
Precognition is not to be feared, it is to be embraced as it can benefit you, and others around you, in a whole variety of different ways.
Even if you never bought into the whole concept, try being a little more open-minded and you’ll be amazed by the difference it makes.
