Writing Creatively With Spirit

A journey of psychic discovery

Can we really see the future?


19th March 2013 (Tuesday)

I saw something and then it happened exactly (well almost) as I saw it. This is the second time this has happened to me; once years ago when I was very pleased with the outcome and this time when I was not.

PICT1572During circle on Monday I asked about a relationship, about whether it was time to cease contact as I seemed to have outgrown it. My friend and I were no longer resonating (as they say) on the same frequency. The answer had been to ‘do nothing it will naturally cease when you’ve both learned all you need to.’

I went home and began trawling through some email correspondence from my friend for clues about what to do when she called me. That was the first shock. She very rarely calls, we mostly correspond by text or email.

She was calling to say she was on her way to Bristol (from Manchester), would be returning the following day and could she stay over at mine for the night for a catch up as we haven’t seen each other in a while.

‘What time?’ I asked, still a little surprised, but not wishing to sound trite by saying ‘I was just reading your emails,’ because I know she’s quite sceptical about some of this stuff.

‘About 6.30’ she replied, but I’ll text you when I’m leaving.

‘Ok’ I agreed, mentally re-jigging my evening.

That’s when it happened. I saw a text from her at 6.25 p.m. which said, ‘sorry can’t make it.’

‘Are you sure?’ she asked, and I wondered if I’d given something away in my voice.

‘Yeah sure.’

‘See you then.’ She was gone. I think she must be on the lowest tariff ever as that’s the usual length of calls she makes to me. Calls I make to her tend to be slightly longer, but she’s not a great on for the phone. (Must be missing a few pink genes.)

I didn’t think about it too much that night as I was having dinner with a friend and doing a reading for her, so I needed my head clear. (That’s another story) However, on waking on Tuesday morning I was drawn to this image of the text again. I went about the day making preparations for her arrival, only half expecting her to arrive, so clear was the text.

At 16.52 I received a text ‘Just leaving Bristol. Will let you know when I find arrival time.’

OK I thought, I must have been wrong. I thought about the last time I had a similar experience. I was doing a poetry performance and a friend had said he’d come to see me. As I got dressed to go out that night I saw him walk in and sit on a chair by the door. It was like a scene that’s lit up by the flash of a camera. It was that quick, but very clear. I waited all night and he didn’t show. Just as they were about to close the doors he slid in and sat in the chair I’d seen him in.

So maybe it wasn’t going to be another one of those occasions. From six o’clock onwards I kept my phone close in case she text me with little time to get to the station (another of her traits).

At 18.19 I saw her text and was by now convinced she’d be telling me her arrival time. It read:

‘Really sorry. Very tired. Decided to go on home. Hope you not too disappointed. Let’s arrange to link soon.’


There it was, as I’d seen it, only six minutes early.

I text back immediately, Yes, disappointed (could have done other things with my day than sort out her room etc) – a little. I must be getting better. I saw this. The wonder would have been if you’d made it. Yes. Next time.

‘Sorry, intention was there x’ she apologised again.

Now, mild annoyance aside, I’ve been wondering if these are just flukes or if I have the ability to see things before they happen. The first incident was about 2008 and I wasn’t sitting in circle then. I was doing some ascension work at the time but nothing specifically around developing psychically.

Have you had similar experiences? Were they a one off or have they become more regular? Is there any way to work on this area specifically, because, quite frankly it could be a very useful skill.

  1. Hi, a comment for you! Because time apparently doesn`t exist and therefore we are living all our lives at once, it is allegedly possible that our future selves can give us messages by giving us flashes of intuition, feelings or images, that make us stop and think. I think that is what is meant by deja vu as well, when we have done the same thing (or lived the same life or event) before, and our future selves can give us a hint about the outcome, or what is needed to be done when neccessary. I have lots of deja vu moments I have to say, not that I used to take any notice until I realised there must be a reason (a message) for it. I`m not sure how to exactly hone this though, because I get the feeling these flashes only happen when we need them to show us something to move forward.

    • Thanks for this Sand. I was talking to someone at circle tonight about this. She says she has them all the time and thinks the way to hone the skill is through… would you believe… meditation. Seems everything comes back to meditation. She said when you get these flashes/visions of things to come they will always happen as you see them (good and not so favourable) there is no way to change them . Like you she says spirit aren’t too good with timing because it doesn’t technically exist where they are – hence they were a few minutes out.
      Well I got one that I was happy with and one that although it was good to be right I’d have been happier to be wrong. Just hoping they will be mostly good. I’d hate to be like the woman in the TV series Medium who keeps seeing death, violence and destruction. Happy visions please guides.

  2. Hi again! Tis moi. I think also Diana Cooper(?) once said something about this, saying that psychics can `remember` or `read` things from peoples`continuous lives in their auras,, and that is how they can predict the future for them or give them helpful advice, because it has happened already! mmmm. Also, she says we have a fear on certain levels of the `known` as opposed to the `unknown`, because we know already what will happen due to time being non-existant and lives overlapping…phew. Great blog by the way!
    Love Sand xx ps sounds like your relationship is perhaps reaching a natural conclusion, which agrees with your meditation message xx
