Double Vision: When Psychics Foresee Tragedies


I am very psychic and am able to communicate with spirits. Recently I foresaw a tragedy: my best friend is going to be killed. I have warned her but she doesn't believe me - she thinks I'm just trying to impress her. I don't want anything to happen to her, so how can I get her to listen to me? I've never been in this desperate a situation with my abilities before. Love to you both!



Bethany, you have just hit on one of the hardest things for anyone who has the sight. When people find out I'm a psychic, they usually say, Wow, what a cool job! I just smile and nod, for they have no idea!

Psychics don't deal with people when they are happy and content - we hear from them when they are most scared, angry or desperate. We also get to tell people what is coming up in their lives, and sometimes those things seem tragic.

It is not your responsibility to make your friend listen. All you can do is tell her what you were told. Whether or not she listens is up to her.

I do realize how desperate you must feel in this situation. She is your friend and you want to help her, but she won't listen to you. Unfortunately, we can't make people listen, and even if they hear us, we can't make them believe what we say. It's a bit like parenting 13-year-olds: They think we don't know what we're talking about, and whatever we're worried about certainly will NOT happen to them.

The best thing you can do in this situation is ask that your friend be protected. You can also ask that her life be spared. (It never hurts to ask!) I ask for all sorts of tiny little things in addition to the BIGGIES like Please do not let my friend die!

It's up to the Universe and her life path what happens from there. You fulfilled your responsibility and you did your job, and you really can't do any more than that.

I will tell you that even though she is acting like she doesn't believe you, and of course she doesn't WANT to believe you, she did hear what you said. It's bouncing around in her head. You planted a seed, and it's sprouting.

Often whether we're dealing with clients or friends and family, all we can do is plant that seed. We have to say what we know and them let them sort things out for themselves. We ALL do that.

Years ago, I had someone tell me that a relationship would only last four years and then it would be over, and I would be the one to end it. I couldn't even FATHOM that happening, so I didn't believe it.

Well, she was right, and that experience taught me a very valuable lesson. You have to trust that you are planting seeds. It's not your job to water them, fertilize them and weed the garden - you're just the seed planter.

You also have to trust that the Universe has a higher plan. Sometimes it doesn't line up with what we think is best, but life does unfold as it needs to regardless of what we think should happen.

Try to relax about this by finding a way to trust that whatever is for the highest and best is what will happen.

I wish you peace with your foreknowledge of this and similar situations.



We've all heard lots of stories about people who were visited by a loved one or relative who was soon to be departing this world. In addition to the things that come up for us professionally, most of us psychics have had personal experiences of a similar nature.

Since your concern for your friend is rooted in your established psychic ability, she deserves to know if you feel she is in mortal danger. So while this may be very difficult or unpleasant for you, I think in a situation like this, you have to tell. To remain mum and then have something awful happen to her would be the worst thing ever for you.

It's so difficult to express something like this to another person. I'm sure many people would be quite resistant to someone (even their best friend) telling them that they've had a psychic vision of their imminent death.

No one wants to hear that they're going to die. Even though we all know our time will come someday, it's not something most people want to think about or be reminded of. So your friend's disbelief may simply arise from her own denial or resistance to the idea that she will die someday.

By warning her about what you see in her future, perhaps you'll be able to prevent her death. I'm sure that's why you told her what you saw. If she's been your friend for many years now, then perhaps once the shock wears off, she'll come around and believe you in time to save herself.

If someone told me something like that, I might tell them they didn't know what they were talking about, but I would certainly take some precautions to keep myself safe, even if I only did it out of respect and consideration for that person's feelings for me.

If your friend can't accept what you've told her yet, that's okay. All you can do is give her the message; you can't force her to believe it.

As I see it, you are really up against a brick wall here. If she was a child, you could try to lock her up and keep her out of harm's way, but since she's a grown woman, she has to live her own life until it's over. If part of her karma is not heeding your warning, there isn't a whole lot you can do about it.

In situations like this, all you can do is listen to your heart and be the best friend you can be. Then you have to release this matter. You can't control what she does or how she lives her life because you can't be with her all the time or watch her every move.

For now, you have to be strong for her by standing behind what your psychic senses are telling you, and also watching out for her as much as she'll allow you to. Of course, you can also keep her in your prayers.

Don't lose your friendship over this, for whether or not your prediction comes true, we will all die someday, but our love for each other will never end.


Many times in life we hear, "You will always have what you NEED, but not necessarily what you WANT." Your spirit must have needed to experience the feeling of leaving your human body, and the suggestion in the next chapter of Sylvia Brown's book was all it took to get you there.

Even though you hadn't read it yet, your SOUL recognized the title of that chapter as something it had been seeking, and your soul, knowing that you had that reference to read after your experience, got with it and out you went!

While I don't usually recommend her books, Sylvia Brown has a wide reaching and powerful effect on lots of people. A Gemini like you would be able to relate easily to her writing and put it to good use. Synchronicity - you gotta love it!

I like your description of "getting caught." That's exactly what it feels like, isn't it? One minute you're free and hovering above the room, and the next minute, ZAP! back down into your corporeal form you go!

As a little kid, I loved that "feeling of return." With practice, most of the time we can control that event, but sometimes, when our physical ears hear a distracting noise or something else occurs to knock us back into reality, back we go. With practice you will be able to control your return better.

I find it interesting that you were visiting your mother-in-law and not someone in your own genetic family. Evidently, you and your husband got married for reasons that are even deeper than love. His family's interest in "psychic stuff" will nurture your children in such matters and help them to grow into their own abilities.

You'll never have to be concerned that when your daughter visits them, she'll be discouraged from exploring her own psychic life and power. My parents encouraged me to develop my psychic senses in a time when it wasn't nice to even discuss such things in public. Heck, it's STILL not considered a great topic at the dinner table in some families!

Your kids will get to talk about it ALL and ask questions and read and study. This is going to give them such an edge in life! Talk with your husband about how you want to present this to your kiddos, so that you are united in your approach and ready to tell them their experiences are all natural and okay.

A word or two of warning: Geminis often have difficulty staying grounded in REAL LIFE. Don't get so strung out on your ASTRAL life that you neglect what you're doing here on Earth.

You are at the beginning of a long journey to learn where your power really lies. Try to be patient with this process and take your time.
