Do you have déjà vu’s? It means “already seen” in French. Have you had premonitions of what will be and then it happened? Do you pay attention to what you’re intuition, your inner senses are telling you?
I have what I’ve come to call “flash forwards.” They are rapid pictures of what will unfold… fast quick flashes, much like a slide show, each a diorama of what will occur. There’s typically a trigger that brings on the flash of knowings. This “skill,” for lack of a better word, started mid-July 2014. Completely conscious, I will in mind’s eye flash forward to possibilities/probabilities that exist in relation to the person(s) I might be speaking with, or if alone, in relation to my own life-path.
The first occurrence happened while I was speaking with a gentleman I’ve known for 20 plus years. Standing in my family room, he spotted the series of young adult sci-fi fiction books in my bookcase and asked if his daughter could borrow one of them. “Of course,” I replied, pulling the book off the shelf and handing it to him. As he took the book, both of us each holding a side, I “saw” a series of events that would occur between us. Disoriented, it took great effort to focus on what he was saying in the present, and be in the events of what would unfold, all existing at once. After he’d left, I wrote out what I had retained thinking, “No, this wouldn’t happen, I don’t understand how these circumstances would ever occur.” And I put it aside after a few days, going on with everyday life not giving the inner mind slideshow another thought… until everything I had seen unfolded in reality just two months later.
In November, 2014 another flash-forward occurred, this time involving the unfolding of experiences that would affect a friend’s life. I was not directly involved in the events. I told her what I had seen, and advised her to take the information to heart, to make the appropriate changes where needed. The events unfolded that December just as I had “known” them to unfold, with some major consequences affecting her life-path. Because she had not made the recommended changes, the results were unpleasant. The ability to see what would occur had now extended out to others lives, not just mine.
Many flash forwards have occurred since, some pleasant, some unpleasant. I have learned to pay attention and if necessary, make different choices where needed before the actual events occur, consequently changing the outcome. This skill is different than seeing someone’s past or sensing someone’s physical illness, which has been a life-long skill-set. This particular ability provides instant knowing, with one catch. It’s not something I can do at will. This occurs randomly, as if the Universe is handing me a filmstrip ahead of time saying, “Here, this is going to happen, and if you make a conscious choice, it will turn out differently. Pay attention. Don’t disregard. Be prepared.”
So I pay attention. Another flash forward occurred this last Thursday. I had picked up four ceramic coasters of Lake Superior that my bff from Wisconsin had gifted me… it was a trigger. I flashed forward to being involved in a relationship (which I am not currently in). I could not see him, but felt and saw events unfold quickly leading to the intersection where this relationship would manifest. It felt fantastic. Even though these flashes of knowing have been ongoing for several years, they always leave me in awe. I’ve stopped doubting myself and to trust what I feel and see. Let’s see what this new adventure holds!
What’s your experience with gut feelings, inner senses, or premonitions?
