The movie “Premonition”, will not be the main topic of this post, The film is confusing to the term itself. First of all, the movie has the lead character (played by Sandra Bullock) jumping around in time which is confusing for a number of reasons, but mostly because the movie is inconsistent in it’s ability to “stay on track” with it’s time jumps. It’s been written about many times and I am not here to discuss the inaccuracies of movie making so, suffice it to say, the movie is all over the place. But I AM here to talk about Premonitions as a subsection of Metaphysics. The movie does have some things about it that add to a persons understanding of the topic, but mostly, it muddles it~ for reasons that only Hollywood could explain. So it is obvious to me that the movie makers were not intending to convey factual information.
The word, Premonition, is often confused with “precognition” or “prophecy”, all of which, fall under the category of ESP or extra sensory perception. So please allow me to simplify the definitions of these words, because if you look them up, you will find overly complicated wording that makes it difficult to separate them.
1.) Premonition: Acquiring information about future events that is perceived as emotion; or a “feeling” that something is about to happen, usually something dire.
2.) Precognition: The acquisition of future information, that cannot be deduced by our normal senses, and is based on facts and details that are obtained from dreams or visions. (non-emotional)
3.) Prophecy: Can be the same as the other two, but the source of the information is attributed to God, or some supernatural source, and can be either emotionally or non-emotionally charged. Of course, all of these are sub-categories of ESP, and eventually all come under the heading, “Metaphysics”. Duke University has a well respected department of Parapsychology and have done some studies that have conclusively found that more than 60% of persons questioned, believe in premonitions and ESP. However the scientific community does not agree, and for a very good reason. It violates the principle of “Causality”. …….An effect cannot occur before it’s cause. In my opinion (and my opinion is only that of a simple seeker of truth) science and Metaphysics will eventually come together out of necessity. It is inevitable. Thoughts are made of Energy and energy encompasses all things, including things not yet understood.
So, dear friends, when it comes down to “Premonition”, the truth is not to be found in the film, but in “Faith”!! I am Dartanion2 ……and that’s the way I see it!!…….cheers…….t xo

The problem with people who have premonitions is the reaction they get from the people that they tell them to. I have had premonitions myself and have just had negative reactions, when the premonition comes true! people I have told just put it all down to a lucky guess so I no longer tell anyone. A little example is I told my son that his wife was pregnant and that they were having a boy. They laughed it off and said ” Mum we are taking precautions “. I was right, and they had a boy. I also wrote his name down on a piece of paper and put the paper in a locked box! I had a dream about the name. I was also correct on the name and proved it. I have predicted all of the births of my grandchildren and their gender. That is my personal experience of predictions or ESP. I always take notice of my ` gut ` feelings as I often find that I am correct although I don`t often let people know unless I feel that it`s important to them or their safety. I have read many books on the subject and find the subject really interesting.
Well Georgina, I have to say that I find YOU really interesting. It is amazing to me that people walk around with these gifts and they can’t really express themselves fully because of the responses of others. And not because they are being disrespectful but because they don’t understand. I am so happy that you have written here today and that others read this…..you never know, words can be powerful and yours are very powerful and bode so well for things come……I am so proud to know you and call you my friend . Looking forward to more and more…….see you around cosmofunnel…..hugs-n-smiles…..tony

I think if meditation was taught in school then we would be able to tap into so much talent! I have read a book that was fiction about a school that uses peoples ESP talents and it was fascinating. Just think of all the good we could do if only people would accept that ESP was a fact and not just fairytales. I say meditation as that is what I do to tap into the `correct channel` although it doesn`t always work. I am able to see peoples faces a bit like a tv but I can`t hear them speak. I do get in touch through the sleep state before you enter the REM sleep state. The difference between a visitation and a dream is that you remember all the details in a visitation where as with dreams you lose a lot of the details or they are just not as clearly defined and are easily forgotten. Either way it`s an interesting subject. Love to you
Hi G, thanks for the comment my friend, I agree with you wholeheartedly……..but I think that in general, people like you and I are having this very same conversation all over the world………we are on course…..and I pray we signs of acceptance before I bow out of this reality……..thanx G, see ya around the cosmofunnel pages…..smiles…..tony

You and I were meant to get in touch sweety. I knew that instantly when I read your first poem that`s why I carried on and read all of them that same night, and I`m so glad that I listened to my `inner light`. There was just something that was bringing me to you and your work. We have so many things in common, I feel that we knew each other in a past life!! what do you think about that?? The subject of reincarnation is another fascinating topic and I`ve read loads of books about that, have you ever read about it?. I once read about a little boy in India who took his parents to another town where he and they had never been before and found all the boys relatives and his widow. He proved it by telling her of a birthmark that she had on her hip and a tatoo of his name around it. Her husband had died in a car crash 8 years before, the little boy was 7 at the time of his visit to her. He named all her relatives and told her stories that only her husband could have known. What a fascinating subject, what do you think of reincarnation, it was that, that lead me to read books about Budhism! I firmly believe in what they say as there are lots of stories and whole books have been written about reincarnation. The whole Budhist religion is so gentle and makes so much sense to me. I would love to have a past life regression hypnotic session! would you do that if you had the chance? I think it would be amazing to see what came out of it wouldn`t you sweety?
All my love G xx
Hi G. yes I would love to do a past life regression, its one of the few things left on my list. Do you know Edgar Cayce “The sleeping Prophet.?” Well he would have these visions while in his dream state and often would awaken with visitations such from people long dead. He became so popular that they have an Edgar Cayce museum dedicated to him, down in Roanoke Va. where memorabilia and etc. are still for sale. I read anumber of his books, but the states he would put himself into would produce some of the most incredible predictions and visitors from another life that ever been recorded, and in my mind pretty much slammed the door on any doubters that glimpses of the future and past are possible. I will be doing a BIG post on reincarnation coming soon and Edgar Cayce will be included…..you have been such a big help to my blog and I think we will get into some things, at your suugestion, if that’s agreeable with you? Until next time my friend I am your humble servant…..t….xxx
