    17 People Share The Premonitions They Had That Came True And I Am Seriously Reeling

    "I had a dream I was talking to my grandfather while he sat in a coffin. I called my mom the next day, and she told me he died during the night."

    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us a premonition they had that came true, and the responses have me seriously reeling and going, "Oh my god!"

    1. "One night, I had a very vivid dream about my grandmother standing on a hill, surrounded with warm, bright light, while Vince Gill's song, 'Go Rest High On That Mountain' emanated from somewhere. When I woke up, the time on the clock was 3:12 A.M..."

    2. "When I was seven years old, my family and I were vacationing in Hawaii and planning to drive to Hana on a Thursday. However, my parents changed their minds and wanted to go on Wednesday instead. I immediately freaked out, knowing something bad would happen, and demanded that we stick with the Thursday plan. But my parents didn't listen. We went on Wednesday...and we got into a head-on collision that almost killed the passengers in the other car."

    "My dad almost lost his leg, my brother had to have emergency intestinal surgery, and that car accident β€” even though it’s been 12 years β€” can be linked as the cause for every event in my life since."


    3. "I was crashing at a friend's place when I had an eerily vivid dream that someone was chasing me with a knife. I woke up in a panic and yelled to my friend, 'Someone near me is going to die!' My friend just told me to go back to sleep, but I spent the next few days warning my family and friends all over the country. Nothing bad had happened by the second day, so I started to think it was a false alarm..."

    4. "A few years ago, I was having lunch with my sister and our guy friend. I went to the bathroom, and when I came back, I said to our friend, 'I can't believe your wife is pregnant again! I thought you guys didn't want any more kids!' I swore we had just been having that conversation, but they looked at me like I was insane..."

    "About a week later, he texted me saying his wife just found out she was pregnant. And that's the story of how I predicted a pregnancy. It was quite spooky!"


    5. "I was walking home on a stormy night and when I reached a certain tree, I had a gut feeling, 'Some branches are going to fall off this one.' So I accelerated my steps, and nanoseconds afterwards a huge branch about the length of a car and girth of a human thigh crashed on the path only a few steps behind me. I'm certain it would have killed or severely injured me."

    6. "When I was a child, I once had a dream that I was kidnapped by two men in a store, and they kept me hidden in their room. A few months later, I saw those exact men at the grocery store, and I told my mom about my dream. She thought maybe I'd just seen them somewhere else before. They were on the news later for having kidnapped a little girl."


    7. "Two days before Christmas 2016, my friends and I were discussing which famous person we thought would die next. My friend mentioned someone, and I responded, 'Nah β€” it'll be George Michael.' Two days later, I saw on the news that George Michael had died."

    8. "When I was in high school, I had a dream one night that I was walking down the stairs talking to my friends, and when I pushed open the door at the bottom, I hit another student in the face with it. Well, the next day my friends and I were walking down the exact same stairs I had dreamt about, and when I pushed the door open I HIT THE SAME KID I HAD DREAMT ABOUT HITTING IN THE FACE WITH THE DOOR!"

    "Sorry Dylan β€” it was meant to be!"


    9. "The night before my grandfather died, I had a dream that I was in a funeral home talking to him while he sat in a coffin. We chatted for a while, and then he told me to call my mother. So the next morning, I did... and she told me the news."

    10. "I once had a dream that my friend had to go to the mechanic but that her bill was wrong. In the dream, they'd charged her $900 when the job was supposed to cost $101. The next day when she went to the mechanic, her bill was exactly $101."


    11. "I was on the boardwalk at the beach with a friend, and she was texting on her phone. Well, for some reason, I thought, 'What if a bird just took a shit directly on her phone screen?' Not even five seconds later, a bird shat on her phone screen."

    12. "I was in third grade when my parents wanted to get pizza for dinner one night. Right before we left the house, a bird flew in and we had to chase it out, and I knew something didn't feel right. So I begged my parents for us not to go..."

    "Well, we went anyway, and on the way we were rear-ended hard, causing a huge pile-up on the freeway. My sister's car seat had come unlatched somehow, and in the exact fraction of a second we got hit I grabbed her seat and held on tight, spraining both of my wrists but saving her from flying forward. From that point on, I always went with my gut."


    13. "When I was in college, I was eating at a fast food place with my boyfriend when I noticed one of the employees talking on the phone and for some reason, I thought, 'She's going to rob this place.' Well, later that night, she and her boyfriend were arrested for trying to rob the establishment."

    14. "When I was about six years old, my grandfather had a best friend β€” 'Mr. Dave' β€” who visited us in his red pickup truck. One night, I had a dream that he drove into our driveway, honked his horn, and then just backed out and drove away. I told my grandma about it the next morning and she laughed...until later that day, when we found out that Mr. Dave had died the night before."


    15. "When we moved into our new house, I immediately had a bad feeling about it, especially around the garage. The feeling was so strong that I stayed away from the garage and couldn't even look at it. Well one day, I took a picture of it. And the very next day, my dad fell and broke his ankle on the exact spot I took the picture. He ended up losing his job as a result."

    16. "My friend and I were at an amusement park a few years ago waiting in line for the 'Steel Hawk,' a giant swing that went really high. Suddenly, I had a feeling that something wasn't right and that it might break, so I told my friend we should ride a different ride. Soon after riding, I saw a bunch of security and cops nearby, and when I looked over β€” sure enough β€” the ride had gotten stuck at the top."


    17. "I started seeing twins everywhere. Then my brother told me that he and his wife were expecting, and when I told him I'd been seeing twins everywhere, I could practically hear him rolling his eyes. Well, a few weeks later they learned it was indeed twins!"
