I guess there really isn’t any proof but at times you just know it’s there. Premonitions are dreams, whispers, even growing fears around an issue. They come out of the blue. They come regardless of my mood. Like a dark black cloud in a clear blue sky.
My gift, of premonition, comes from my mother. Sixteen year old’s can drive but they, I, had few governors and often made bad decisions. I made plans to go out. I told my Mom that her girlfriend and I were going to a concert in a nearby city.
In reality, I was meeting friends and we were going out to party. I dressed and put on my makeup, moderately and plan to put on more later, and walked gleefully toward the door.
I heard my mother say “Stop!” She said, “you are not going. If you do something bad will happen.” As much as I tried to persuade her she would not be moved. I gave up. I removed my good clothes, makeup, phoned my friends and went to my room to sulk. I spent a restless evening watching the stars, reading my books, and wishing I was someplace else.
I even finished my homework. On a Friday night that’s not usually what I did. I went to bed angry. The next day I woke up, did my Saturday chores, and hope that that night would be a better one. My girlfriend phoned and said, “you won’t believe what happened!” The party, gathering, was visited by the police. Alcohol was seized.
Party goers, most underage, were taken in to the Police Station and their parents phoned. I could have been grounded, for life, or arrested; I am not too sure which would’ve been worse. To this day I don’t know what my mother saw.
I did respect her gift. In my lifetime I have seen many things. Most of them have come true and some are still pending. My mom said we were Fae, Scottish for the second sight. (the urban dictionary describes it as ‘A fae is a humanoid mystical creature that wields great power in magic’) If you have a feeling or premonition pay attention. It will work to your advantage.
If you don’t you are not truly honoring yourself.
