If Time is not constant this would explain precognition. Imagine time as a wave that curves and sometimes touches itself very briefly, giving a glimpse of a future time or a memory of the past. When I was in need I sought to borrow joy from a happier future me. I somehow knew the future me would have resolved the issues I was struggling with. I visualised the best case scenario and then when the time came, it was better. There is always a price, but envisioning a positive future, working on physical fitness, carrying yourself well until the time comes, worked for me. Gracefully take help if you can get it, but stick with your plan. A human's default condition is a positive view of the environment and of the future. Unhappiness is sometimes due to recent negative memories that are confusing your default condition. It takes the same effort no matter which direction you choose, so choose the very best option for yourself.
