Though some psychologists and natural scientists remain skeptical, many agree telepathic abilities and related phenomena exist.

Chris Carter, an Oxford University-educated author of “Science and Psychic Phenomena: The Fall of the House of Skeptics,” cited two surveys in an article he published in Epoch Times last year that show a majority of scientists believe in such abilities.

One survey was conducted among more than 500 scientists; 56 percent said extra-sensory perception (ESP) is “an established fact” or a “likely possibility.” The other survey was conducted among more than 1,000 scientists; 67 percent said it is an established fact or likely possibility.

Here are some anecdotes of premonitions, some are famous cases from history, others were shared via social media.


1. Pizza Place Premonition

While I was employed at Tiny Julius’s pizza place, I started to feel like I was about to die. Just an absolute feeling of death. [I] asked my boss to leave, and did. I felt fine once I got to my car and got home.

We got robbed later that day, at gunpoint, by the other manager.

2. Timely Tantrum

My son (3 at the time) threw a huge tantrum when we were trying to leave the house because he ‘didn’t want to crash and die.’ After about 10 minutes, he just stopped and was ready to go.

As we were walking out of the house there was a very bad accident on the street in front of our house—right where we would have been driving if he hadn’t thrown his fit.

3. A Little Girl’s Dream

A little girl named Eryl Mai Jones foretold her own death and those of her classmates in Aberfan, Wales, in October 1966.

She told her mother she wasn’t afraid to die, because “I shall be with Peter and June,” as the Daily Mail recounts. Days later, on October 20, she described a dream she had in which a black substance covered her school and no one was at the school.

The next day, on Oct. 21, 1966, coal waste broke loose and covered the school, killing more than 100 children. Jones, 10, died and was buried next to her classmates Peter and June.


4. Harriet Tubman’s Guide to Freedom

Harriet Tubman, famous for leading hundreds of slaves to freedom in the 19th century, was said to have visions that successfully guided her away from danger. She would see herself and the others running into trouble at certain points along the way and would avoid those routes.

5. An Autistic Child With Foresight

I was working with an autistic child who used to speak of himself in the third person. I was bathing him and he began to excitedly say, “His mom is coming, his mom is coming.”

I figured she told him the night before so I got his things ready and then we waited for his mom to come to pick him up. When she came I told her he was excited that she was coming, to which she replied, “I didn’t tell him I was coming.”

She said once they had been driving and her son had told her to be careful of the deer while talking to him on the phone. She sort of brushed it off, but slowed down. A few minutes later, a deer ran across the road, where she probably would have hit it had she not slowed down.
