Book Review-Premonitions and Psychic Warnings, Real Stories of Haunting Predictions By Edrick Thay

Book Review-Premonitions and Psychic Warnings, Real Stories of Haunting Predictions By Edrick Thay

By Briana Abraham/reporter

psychicwarningsDreams, premonitions, psychic warnings and basic intuition all reveal themselves in Edrick Thay’s book Premonitions and Psychic Warnings, Real Stories of Haunting Predictions.

Thay relays individual stories based on true encounters and refers to psychic greats such as Edger Cayce, Nostradamus and Barbara Garcia as sources of inspiration.

Thay explains in his introduction the connection with humanity, and ways to become aware of life and energy that brings us together.

In believing, he claims that faith, belief in mystery that resists science and logic, and understanding of people in general are needed.

“ We still look for omens and signs; we still cling to traditions and rituals believed to possess the influence to affect the future. Knowing the future gives us agency and control of our destinies,” he says.

In the chapter “Love and Death,” Thay describes Elly, a young girl who was very close to her father. When her father becomes ill and is hospitalized, the young girl is traumatized and confused seeing her father hooked up to several machines. The girl cannot visit him in the room because it would cause a lot of drama.

After three months, Elly began to get frantic, and her mood noticeably changed. Her response was that she knew her father was going to die. Her mother, knowing that she may be right, would assure her daughter that everything was going to be all right.

In the meantime, the father would tell the mother to take care of their little girl.

Elly would be awakened in the morning by the sounds of her own crying.

Her mother continued to reassure her everything would get better. In the last part of the story, the mother breaks down and asks her daughter how she knows her father is going die. The daughter says she dreamed about a preacher praying and a grave with flowers all around. The casket was out, and she could describe everyone around her.

Three weeks after Elly had the dream, she woke up knowing that something terrible had happened. Her aunt was there, and her mother was crying. She knew that her father had died. The funeral was exactly they way it appeared to her in her dream. Thay has several stories similar to Elly’s in his book. In all, the book is interesting and gives many details of these true stories.

Premonitions is a light read and does not require much time or effort to get into.

Thay provides a good introduction that explains psychics and gives information that may help the reader understand the content.

As Thay would say, “Psychics see themselves as guides, offering direction and advice on how best to actualize an individual’s potential and interpret the signposts along the avenue of life.”
