Precognition is the ability to perceive or sense the future through clairvoyance. If you have these extrasensory abilities, you can obtain direct knowledge of events or situations in the future before they happen.
The word precognition comes from the Latin meaning ‘prior to’ and ‘to gain knowledge.’ Precognition isn’t the same as the ability to prophecy or having premonitions of the future. These are more feelings of what might happen in the future or sensing an event that could occur.
For clairvoyants and individuals with precognition, knowledge of the future occurs as visions or flashes of information. This can occur in an awake state or a dream state. You might get a mental vision of an accident that is about to happen or get a feeling that you shouldn’t go someplace, only to find out later that the accident did happen or that a negative event happened where you were supposed to be.
Some people dream about future events. They are able to see into the future, usually short term. People with precognition often see future events that involve themselves, a friend, or a family member. Some people are able to sense events unrelated to them. Some clairvoyants are able to perceive their own deaths in rare circumstances.
You don’t have to be a practicing clairvoyant in order to sense the future. People can have precognition about their own lives, but it takes listening to these extrasensory messages and going with your intuition to get yourself used to this new sense. Write down your dreams or visions to see if you might have precognition. Who knows what you might find out about the future!
