We've all heard of predictions from scientists or futurists that ultimately came true, but what about prophecies from folks who are spiritually or mystically inclined? Learn about some mind-blowing predictions that actually came true, then speak with an intuitive Psychic to take control of your own future.

Sylvia Browne Predicted the Coronavirus

You don't have to look far into the past to find examples of predictions that came true. Just consider American psychic Sylvia Browne. She was also a best-selling author who published a book called "End of Days" in 2008. The book contained a particularly eerie prediction, given the way the past few years have gone.

Browne wrote about a severe illness like pneumonia spreading around the world. She predicted that this disease, which would attack a person's lungs and bronchial tubes, would resist all known treatments. As for when Browne said that strange illness would appear and spread? Oh, the year 2020. If that all sounds familiar, it's because that's exactly how the coronavirus pandemic played out.

Browne didn't get to see her prediction come true since she died in 2013, but if you're reading this now, you can understand how astonishing this prediction really was. Browne also wrote that while the illness would be baffling, even more perplexing would be how it vanishes as quickly as it arrived, comes back again 10 years later, and then finally completely disappears. Only time will tell if this second part of Browne's prediction will come to pass.

Mark Twain Predicted His Own Death

There's no lack of eerie historical predictions to explore, either. Just consider American writer Mark Twain, who predicted his own death in 1909. Twain, whose real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens, was a humorist, journalist, lecturer, and novelist known around the world for his travel narratives and adventure stories, particularly "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer," published in 1876 and "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,"  published in 1885.

Twain's enduring literary popularity isn't his only claim to fame, though. Mark Twain might have had a touch of legitimate psychic abilities in him as well. In 1909, Twain's biographer, Albert Bigelow Paine, wrote that Twain said he came into the world in 1835 along with Halley's comet, and he expected to leave the world alongside that comet companion when it came back again in 1910. Sure enough, Mark Twain died on April 21, 1910. Halley's comet had returned to earth just the day before.

Edgar Cayce Predicted the Stock Market Crash of 1929

Known as "the sleeping prophet," Edgar Cayce was famous for a variety of predictions. For one thing, he spoke of an "unprecedented alliance" between Germany, Austria, and Japan long before the events of World War II proved him right. Cayce made thousands of predictions throughout his life, with many of these predictions dealing with diagnosing other people's health problems. He would go into a meditative, trance-like state to diagnose the issue and then predict effective treatments to cure the person.

Perhaps his most famous prediction, though, is his accurate prophecy about the stock market crash that ushered in the Great Depression. In fact, Cayce predicted twice that the stock market would crash. He first predicted the event in 1925, and then he did it again only a half a year before the event finally happened.

Two Books Predicted the Titanic Disaster

The Titanic disaster has played in the popular imagination since the luxury ocean liner sank in freezing Atlantic Ocean waters on April 15, 1912. The historical facts are tragic: When the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage, more than 1,500 people died. It's no wonder, then, that countless stories, movies, and more have popped up in the many years since, fictionalizing the tragedy. But what about the two fictional stories written about the disaster...BEFORE it happened?

That's right — two stories published before the Titanic made that ill-fated maiden voyage bear eerie similarities to the real-life disaster. Sure, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, transatlantic ocean liners had a huge role in travel and, by extension, public preoccupations. Still, that doesn't quite account for the bizarre coincidences. Take the first work, "How the Mail Steamer Went Down in Mid Atlantic by a Survivor," a story written by W.T. Stead.

Stead, a prominent spiritualist and investigative journalist, wrote about an unnamed ocean liner's sinking in the Atlantic. The protagonist of the story is concerned about a lifeboat shortage, and when the ship ultimately strikes a small ship in fog, chaos ensues. Women and children have priority on the available lifeboats, but only 200 passengers and crew out of 700 people aboard the ship survive. Stead concluded the story with advice that this might indeed happen if liners sail while short of boats, a key part of the Titanic tragedy. Stranger still, Stead ultimately died in the real-life disaster.

Another, even more famous, example of literature that bears uncanny resemblances to the Titanic is a novella by Morgan Robertson called "The Wreck of the Titan: Or, Futility." The strange similarities start with the name of the fictional ocean liner, the Titan. Just like the Titanic, the Titan was described as the largest ship sailing at the time. The Titan sails with a shortage of lifeboats after being deemed "unsinkable."

The sizes and lengths of the fictional Titan and real Titanic are close as well, and they crash into an iceberg at similar speeds. Indeed, both ships meet their demise after striking an iceberg and sinking in the Atlantic Ocean on a cold night in April. It's all a nearly word-for-word description of the Titanic and its situation. After the Titanic sank, the book was reissued and the author labeled clairvoyant, though he claimed his knowledge of maritime operations allowed him to write such an accurate account of the Titanic disaster before it occurred. We'll let you be the judge.
