I’ve always been especially skeptical about those who claim to have premonitions, or at least those who label them premonitions and I’ve found it to be quite sad on my part. A premonition by definition is a feeling that something is about to happen, usually bad.
To this I say, are the connotations of what we believe premonitions to be accurate? I, like many others, envision somebody holding their fingers to their temples seeing an unfortunate accident taking place before it does. Is there another word for this though?
Could this be described as a bad feeling? Intuition? Does this ability even exist in any part at all?
Quite often, people believe something due to a coincidence in which they choose to focus on. I’ve known people to have ‘bad feelings‘ about something most days, to be proven right on one particular day and then feel as though they are omnipotent.
I try not to be a cynic about things that I can neither prove n’or disprove because that just seems arrogant and self-righteous, and quite honestly I would love for somebody to have this type of gift – imagine!
I would love to hear examples in which people believe they have had premonitions.
