It was about 12 years ago to the best of my memory. I was running my own franchised soft drink run and my regular area was at Thornliegh, Sydney Australia. I have had many premonitions in my life, most of them were only trivial and occurred sometimes day in and day out... Spanned from memory over the last 30 years or so. Although today, they have basically stopped, a lot of these premonitions occurred way back and most of them at this point of time are long forgotten.
There are some premonitions that I will never forget and this one was so profound and accurate, my decision to follow my instincts ended up saving my life, no doubt. It was the night before and in this dream I was driving along Showground Road at Castlehill. Suddenly I could see myself in this traffic accident and I was dead. I remember distinctly how horrible the feeling and sense of death was, it literally chilled me to my spine.
The other thing I remember was the impact, that too was awful. The whole dream was more than just a dream and waking up, I had this feeling in my gut that what was shown to me was for a reason and when you have premonitions on such a regular basis, it doesn't take much to convince you otherwise. Heading to work that next morning, my daily routine was in progress and most of the day went pretty smooth, until the point where I finished my last delivery and time to head home. My journey home from Thornliegh should have taken me through Castlehill and along Showground Road, like on all of my previous travels this way was the best option.
Being in a truck, Showground Road was really the only way home for me, unless I was willing to take a suburban way, at the risk of being fined a 1000 dollars by local laws designed to keep trucks out of these areas. At that time financially with a young family and living week to week taking this risk is not something I would have considered lightly. But thankfully it was a risk I was prepared to take as I had no intention of using showground road.
It took a little extra time to get home, but eventually I made it and felt relieved I was home and safe, I was wondering about the what if factor and at what point do I use that road again? It could have been perhaps half an hour later, as I was still sorting out the goods on my vehicle the news came over the radio. It was peak hour traffic and accidents were often relayed to motorist on a daily basis.
When it was relayed about a fatal accident at showground road castlehill, I knew instantly it was the accident I saw in my dream the previous night... I don't believe premonitions are necessarily accredited to our own abilities, but are given to us for reasons sometimes beyond our understanding, it was not my time.
