    If I did have the numbers you would not see em posted here.
    My premonitions are silly. Never about anything significant But I have been able to prove it to people.

    I've never had a premonition, but my sister has had several. A major one was when one night, she dreamed about fire. Just seeing flames everywhere. The next day, we found out that a very close family friend had died in a beach house fire with 6 other college students that night. She was also convinced that our family dog was going to die because she had a dream about a brown dog dying. He didn't die, but her friend called the next day saying that HER brown dog had died.

    When I was pregnant with my first child I had a dream that I was sitting in my childhood bed and I looked from one side of the bed to the other and there was a little boy on each side, one clearly bigger than the other. I woke up feeling really pleasant and happy about the dream. I ended up having a boy that first time and seven years later, I was blessed with a second baby boy! That dream was a great gift!

    I'm always having weird dreams, usually about patients or coworkers family members. I've never had a dream be wrong, but I don't always dream about everything either...sometimes it's really creepy.

    Thanks for all the replies. I talked to some of my co-workers about it today too, and apparently it is pretty a pretty common phenomenon, at least amongst those with whom I work... I'll have to keep better track of my dreams from now on. Oh, but if I do dream the powerball numbers, I'm keeping that one to myself

    I have them all of the time. I can just think of something or say to myself what if such and such happened, what would I do. And you guessed it, not to long afterwards, I'm talking hours or in some cases a day or two that exact same thing happens. It freaks me out totally. What's really freaky is that one of my older aunts has a picture of herself probably in her 20's and I look just like her and everything that she does I do, just like the premonitions, she has then as well! Crazy! Looking at her is like looking at myself except she's way older!!

    When I was a young teen, I had a dream about my childhood best friend's grandfather. I saw him sitting by their house on a bench, and wildflowers were growing out of his face. I soon learned that he passed away.

    The strangest thing happened to me when I was in nursing school. I would call my parents once a week on a Sat. or Sun. and catch up. They live thousands of miles away. One week, I felt lead to call them up on a Tuesday after having just talked to them for a couple of hours the Saturday prior. Nothing of any significance had happened in that time frame, and there was no reason to call. I didn't even know what to say, really, besides hi, how are you etc. My father picked up and said he wasn't feeling well. When prompted, he complained of worsening right sided abd pain for the past couple of days, N&V, lack of appetite, constipation. It was late at night there, and he insisted he was just going to rest up and see how it goes in the a.m. Needless to say, I immediately suspected acute appendicitis and told him to call the ambulance and go to the ER without delay. I said I would call back within 15 minutes if if the ambulance had not been contacted, I would call one in for him whether he wanted it or not.

    He went to the hospital and had to have an appendectomy right then. The surgeon reportedly told him that had he waited until the a.m., chances were his appendix would have ruptured. My mother thought my random call saved his life. I had had appendicitis myself at 12 years of age, my appendix ended up rupturing, was hospitalized for a month after surgery with peritonitis etc. and almost didn't make it.
