Friday facts- february 11- abe lincoln

Today’ s fact is related to Abe Lincoln since tomorrow is his birthday. He was the 16th president and served during one of our country’s most turbulent periods. People call it the civil war which is the technical term but really, there’s nothing civil about a war, is there?

What I want to talk about is Lincoln’s psychic visions. He had numerous psychic episodes in his life. One of them he related to his wife was he’d seen himself in a mirror once with a double reflection. One was blurry, one was not. He thought that meant he’d lived through his first term as president and would die in the second term. Eerie, yeah?

Even more eerie was the dream he had a week or two before he died. He dreamed he heard a woman crying, followed the sound and saw a woman in one of the rooms of the White House sitting beside a coffin. He stepped into the room and asked the lady who died. She said, “the president.” He looked inside the coffin and saw himself. Check out this book for info.

This facet of the 16th president’s life fascinates me as I’ve been known to have psychic episodes. Over and over in my life. I haven’t learned to control them and I’ve had people beg me not to dream about them, but I can’t control when this stuff happens. I had an episode this week which luckily was not as bad as I thought it was. I woke at a little after 1 am with a friend of mine on my mind. She’s undergoing cancer treatment. I couldn’t go back to sleep until I sent an email and prayed for her. Even then, I had issues the rest of the night. I woke up with Danny Boy in my head around 3:00. This song is a funeral song in my mind. Around 4 am, I woke myself up designing a memorial garden. Thank God she was all right, but her mom told me she’d had a very rough time that night- it was her first night in a new treatment facility (which I didn’t know)- and she really needed the extra thoughts and prayers. Well, she got them from me. For sure.

Another interesting tidbit about Lincoln. His son, Robert, fell on some train tracks and was rescued by John Wilkes Booth’s brother, the famous actor, Edwin Booth. This happened way before John killed Abe. How wild is that?


  1. Didn’t know that about Booth’s brother. The psychic thing is very interesting too. How horrible it must have been to see himself in a coffin. Thanks for another interesting and informative post. I love Friday Facts.

  2. Okay, Jillian, you gave me the frissons! The hair was standing on the back of my neck through this entire post. I loved that information about Booth’s brother as well. And it’s just…wow, so interesting about Lincoln’s abilities. Great Friday fact!

    • I like giving you the frissons!! LOL! Lots of interesting Lincoln stuff. I think I told you one that I’m an empath. This week was one of the hard ones.
