In this article, we are going to talk about who is a precognitive empath, the signs that you are a precognitive empath, and help you understand how to handle being one.
There are different types of empaths, and each type of empath has its own unique characteristics or traits. Identifying the type you are can be challenging as some traits may overlap.
Some common types of empaths include Sigma Empath, Dark empaths, Intuitive empaths, and Heyoka Empaths.
Do you have a unique ability to foresee events before they happen? Sometimes you feel like you are reliving events. But you can’t seem to recall where you first encountered them.
Let’s dive deep to ascertain if you might be a precognitive empath.
Who Is a Precognitive Empath?
Precognition is a form of future vision. It is the unnatural ability to predict the future with near-perfect accuracy.
Precognitive empaths are empaths who have precognitive abilities, they have premonitions about the future either when awake or when sleeping.
As a precognitive empath, you may receive premonitions about someone’s status like relationship, health, and career among other issues like their travels and achievements.
In her book, The Empaths Survival Guide, Judith Orloff, MD, alludes that a precognitive empath receives messages from non-local realms. Mystics call this realm the book of life or Akashic records.
Whereas this may look surreal, there are mentions of such records in many cultures. In the religious context, precognitive empaths were referred to as seers.
Society would always consult them before embarking on events such as war. They could also warn people against natural calamities such as drought.
Precognitive empaths have different levels. Your level of revelations depends on how far you have grown the gift. People with high precognitive ability can be able to use it at will.
Others rely on spontaneous disclosure and may still need to understand the visions. Here are four surprising signs that you might be a precognitive empath.
Signs that you are a Precognitive Empath
1. You are Instinctive
Precognitive empaths sometimes have a sense of foreboding. They feel something is about to happen but can’t point the finger at it.
Sometimes you may have a hunch about a particular person and want to call them. Then after contacting them, you get to know that they are sick.
Or you wanted to attend some event, and an uncomfortable chill stopped you at the last minute. Then you later learned that there was an accident involving the vehicle you wanted to travel in.
Precognitive empaths will also know when good events are about to happen. Like when a friend is about to have a wedding or has been admitted to college.
But adverse events have stronger vibes, making the empath feel like they are bearers of bad news.
Some precognitive empaths hear whispers that tell them what will happen. Others have visual images that occur even in their conscious states.
These revelations are not just about other people. Precognitive empaths may also have a grasp of their future.
2. You Pre-recognize People
Precognitive empaths know in-depth details about people at first glance. They can tell if individuals are good and what sort of energy they own.
They know if they should get close to the people or keep their distance.
Their earlier instinct about them manifests as they know this person deeper. The puzzles they had during the first meeting joined together, and now they have a complete picture.
3. You Have Vivid Dreams
For a precognitive empath, most dreams are warnings about the future. They may have dreams about the actual event that will happen. They also have symbolic dreams that they need help interpreting.
But one thing is shared, the dreams are vivid. Precognitive empaths can sense imminent danger in their dreams. Sometimes nightmares are so vivid that they wake up screaming.
These dreams can also be emotional. They sometimes leave you feeling anxious or panicky. After such a dream, you may wake up feeling overwhelmed or exhausted.
Some precognitive empaths have free-fall dreams. In these dreams, they experience teleportation to different places without restrictions.
Precognitive empaths remember their dreams clearly after waking up. But afterward, they may struggle to recall the dreams.
When these revelations come true, they feel like they are reliving something they’ve gone through before.
4. You Are Perceptive
A precognitive empath is constantly in touch with their surroundings. If you are one, you can sense the slightest change in others.
You can tell when someone is grieving, even when they are laughing out loud. You know a friend has received good news before they tell you.
You understand situations deeper than other people. Sometimes you also know who is calling before you pick up the phone.
How Do You Handle Being a Precognitive Empath
Being an empath can sometimes be overwhelming and the empath gift may drain you down and feel like a curse.
Here are three tips you can employ to handle being a precognitive empath.
1. Use your Foresight with Integrity
Knowing when to share information is crucial if you are a precognitive empath. It would be best if you also were careful of how much of that information you reveal.
Sometimes you can warn others about dangerous situations by using precautionary language. It is always good to remember that what you are seeing has a probability of not happening.
Also, remember that some of the events you foresee cannot change. Revealing this information will only send the concerned panic.
2. Keep A Journal of Your Dreams
If you are a precognitive empath, keeping a journal of your dreams will help you remember them. Your dreams are vivid when they occur, but you may be unable to recollect them after some time.
Recording the dreams as soon as they happen will help you remember the details more clearly. You should note what happened and where you were.
Were you part of the dream or an observer? What kind of emotions did you experience? Did you wake up feeling happy, or did you have a panic attack?
Who else was involved, and what was their part in the dream?
3. Create Self Awareness
As a precognitive empath, it is possible to feel that you are the cause of bad events. You may misconceive that it is your responsibility to stop calamities.
For instance, if you foresee the death of a person, you may want to prevent it from happening. Sometimes you may fear stigmatization and suppress further revelations.
Remember that these misconceptions are not valid. Understanding your gifts and position will help you better tune into your duty.
Being a precognitive empath is part of your life. Trying to withdraw yourself from it may be difficult or even counterproductive.
Alison L. Alverson the author of Empath Workbook advises that precognitive empaths need to set healthy boundaries. You should be able to think through your revelations without being emotional.
You can only use visions to guide other people when you control your emotions.
4. Mind the other person’s welfare first
This will require you to practice a lot of patience, humility, and constraint when approaching any situation.
You must critically look at a situation before revealing the details if you feel the disclosure may hurt the person or drive them to do insane things to themselves.
It is best to find other ways to address the situation or withhold the information in order to maintain the integrity of the gift.
Final Thought on Precognitive Empath
Being a precognitive empath is not weird. Whereas it may have its downside, cultivating the gift can be very rewarding. Your incisive visions can bring healing messages to the world.
You may not be able to prevent events from happening. But your foreknowledge may warn people and help them take preventive measures.
Your abilities can also help you enrich your own life by avoiding not-so-obvious pitfalls.
