Charmed Series Book of Shadows: Premonition

Premonition is the ability to see and experience events from the past, present, and future. This power is highly desirable, since it often helps a witch evade dangerous situations. It is one of the most helpful defensive powers that a witch can possess. This was one of the three powers possessed by Melinda Warren, which she passed on to the Charmed Ones.

Usually in the early stages of Premonition, most users receive their visions by touching objects or people related to the Premonition by way of Psychometry. As their power grows, users get visions out of the blue, and are able to look into the future, present, or past by will alone. If the psychic energy in an area is strong enough, a psychic will get a vision without touching anything, even if their power hasn't evolved yet.

On occasions powerful psychics who's powers have evolved may choose to touch an object or a person to focus their power to get a vision by will. Kyra, a demonic seer, has been known to do this. Phoebe initially had to touch an object in order to receive a premonition, however she has recently shown that she can receive premonitions without touching anything, but if she wishes to receive a premonition on command, she will often still touch an object in order to focus her power.

Usually, in the early stages, most users can only see and hear what is taking place. As their power grows, users develop the ability to experience aspects of their premonitions allowing them to feel the emotions of the victims in their premonitions. Phoebe Halliwell can sometimes feel the emotions of the victims in her premonitions, for example, she once felt the emotions of an elderly woman being killed. Also, Kyra once asked Phoebe to take her shoes off so she could feel the grass through her.

Users can train themselves to call for premonitions. Phoebe learned to do this less than a year after gaining this power. She was able to call a vision to her using Piper's plane ticket, allowing her to see Piper missing her plane. Before, this didn't always work, as evidenced on multiple occasions.

Also, demonic seers can call premonitions on will alone, everytime, and they can always see what future will be if the present situation continues.
