Scary premonition yesterday morning.

    I woke up unusually early (3am) yesterday morning. I had had a restless night of sleep, partly due to leaving my bedroom window open causing the temperature in my room to drop too low. But, strangely, I woke up sweating, and my whole body ached.

    I take regular walks in the mornings, and there was a mist in the air that was foreshadowing a spring snow. As I walked, I kept having a dark feeling, as if something were out of place. The thick air gave a luminous, eerie sense to the morning, which accounted for some of my feeling, but I felt something strange beyond the weather. Something that reminded me of my restless sleep. Something that caused me to pay increased attention to my whole body. I was convinced I was going to get the flu, and cut my walk short.

    I had a 9am appointment with my barber in downtown Denver. Just before 9am, I parked at a garage and was walking down the sidewalk when I saw a large gathering of police cars less than one block from my destination. There were also a large number of pedestrians gathered. I asked one of the lookers what had happened, and he told me that a male had tried to hang himself from a seventh-story fire escape, but the rope snapped and he fell to his death in the alley. I peered through the police scene and could see that his corpse was still present, covered by a tarp. I was also aware of the fact that the crime scene was a building that I had lived in when I was just nineteen.

    I had gone through a rough time in my life while living in that building. Admittedly, I had struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts during that time, and underwent out-patient care with a psychiatrist. The depression eventually subsided after I moved. I've chalked most of it up to being homosexual, and to my unconscientious roommate at the time. What was always strange to me, though, was that nothing was really going badly in my life (or in the country or world), but I had had a unexplainable sense of hopelessness.

    After leaving my appointment, I walked by the alley, which was no longer occupied by the police. No cleaning crew had arrived yet to clean the blood left behind. It was a grim scene, and the blood was brilliant red contrasted against the dingy gray alley. As I walked by, I felt something similar to what I had felt earlier in the morning. Only different, as if something had been wrong, but no longer was. I couldn't help but think, crazy as it sounds, that I had some kind of warning that this was going to happen. Then, I was struck by the deepest sadness looking at the blood of someone who had existed just hours prior. I didn't care if I seemed disrespectful, I kept standing there. A policeman walked by, and I asked what happened. He lied, telling me that it was an accident.

    I have looked in the paper and online to read anything more about the tragedy, but there was only one short article on the Denver Post website. The whole occurrence hasn't left my mind, and I am considering calling the police to inquire about the suicide. Nothing like this feeling has ever happened to me before, and I keep wondering if there is some connection. I keep thinking that that could have been me a decade ago. What keeps me thinking about this the most is that I had a very similar plan to end my life, while I was living there.

    I know this is a peculiar posting, but I don't know of any other forum-type websites. I would very much like to find a website that discusses this type of thing. If anyone has advice, knowledge, or a similar experience to share, I would like to hear it.

    Sometimes the overall energy of your surroundings is indicative of the kind of experiences you'll have for the day.

    Very interesting post. It's so easy to condense our existence into molecules, atoms, cells, and neurotransmitters, but there is much much more to us than chemistry and biology. The human condition is complex, with some of its components being intangible, invisible, and inexplicable through the languages of science and reason.

    I can understand how such an experience can shake a person to the core and bring forth some long forgotten, unpleasant memories. Stay strong and take care of yourself. You are very fortunate to be safe and healthy!

    The blood wouldn't be "brilliant red". That is a completely false statement; though if it was for artistic license, I'll let it slide icon_smile.gif

    If the blood was more than about 15 minutes exposed to atmosphere, it should have turned a deep dark red.

    I think there is a misunderstanding and/or misuse of the word "brilliant" ... as I would also expect "brilliant red" to be more descriptive of a very bright red, such as blood that has just passed out of the lungs.

    However, as contrasted with a dingy dirty street or sidewalk pavement, even dark red blood in a large, concentrated quantity could be considered "brilliant" by contrast.

    Sorry to take away from the OP's story here, just some added insight.

    I think that there are times in all of our lives when we are just surrounded by bad energy. Call it evil, call it negativity, whatever. But it's real and I have experienced it a number of times in my life. Luckily I am getting better at recognizing it and removing myself from the situation fairly quickly as soon as it becomes apparent. I would encourage you to be aware of this in your own life.

    There are those of us who are "empaths'. That is, we feel empathy for, and a connection to, many more people than the average person walking down the street. It is both a blessing and a curse, and it seems to me that there is also an awareness of the energy around us that is so clear to us that we don't understand how others can't see/feel/hear/smell it. But we sure can, and we often do. Based on your posting, I believe that you're probably an empath and you haven't learned to identify when "it's happening" to you. Still, this was one of those times in your life.

    There is a reason that you felt what you did. I encourage you to find out what that reason is, and then use that awareness to change your way of looking at things. I agree with a poster above. Get to a psychic, preferably one who uses words like "feel, see, get in contact with", etc., because these are frequently the words used by empaths. There is a difference between being highly sensitive to our surroundings and to being psychic, but admittedly it's a fine line. This experience may have been a life changing experience, your way of becoming aware of what gifts you have. Don't waste this experience.
