Can we call it premonition?

In an article, premonition is defined as a foreknowledge of an event that has not yet happened.  The article discusses about us being able to tell what is going to happen but has not happened yet, and that there are a lot of possibilities being broadcasted all the time.  Ms. Pavlina also said these are being brought to us by our spirit guides, or by a ‘time stream’.

I have encountered a lot of mention about premonition when death falls to a person.  During wakes, people will talk about ‘predictions’ mentioned by the dead person days before his or her death.  Take for example, Papsie’s cousin, Nilo, who made mention of words to his friend like “Huwag ka muna mamatay, ako muna mauuna.(Don’t die yet, I have to die first.)  He died days after.

I wondered if cousin Nilo knew about his impending death.  Did he utter those words unknowingly?  Because if he did know about it, he could have done something about it, and did everything to avoid his own death knowing his kids are still young and dependent on him.

Being obvious that he was not aware of the implications of his own words, can we call it premonition then?
