Can predict earthquakes, but people laugh

Topic: 6th Sense


June 10, 2016

Hello, my name id Debbie. I don't like to talk about this because of the negative feedback I get from some people. I always seem to know when there is going to be an earthquake, usually the day of or before, up to two weeks in advance. I'd say 90% have come true. Of course, I live in Southern California. Maybe my body is just tuned into it, not sure, the "Feeling" I get is one of unbalance with the earth and myself. It's very difficult to explain. I told my husband yesterday morning that an earthquake was coming, he just laughed! Sure enough, we had a 5.2 magnitude quake in Borrego Springs, about 100 miles from where we live at 1:04 am. I jumped out of bed! Someone once told me that my thrid eye was really open (whatever that means)But, It might have something to do with it? I just feel the earth is "off" some how, that something isn't right and then my prediction usually comes true, Something about the magnetic pull of the earth, I guess? Thanks for reading, Debbi

Deborah - USA



For many years, the Chinese have used barnyard animals to predict when earthquakes will occur. See The Use Of Animals In Earthquake Prediction and Can Animals Sense Earthquakes?.

So, it is possible that you are able to sense the subtle vibrations and tension in the air that may come before an earthquake occurs.

If you are also able to sense or predict other future events, you could have a strong precognition 6th sense. Most people have that sense to a small degree.

Whatever the case, don't let others get you down, because of your ability. For some people, it is probably not worth telling them.

Best wishes with your predictions. But I hope you won't have to predict any bad earthquakes.

Are senses the gateway of knowledge?

Topic: General


April 20, 2016

why do we say senses are the gateway of knowledge?




Information from other people and sources are received by your senses and then processed and interpreted into knowledge. The senses are the starting point or gateway to gaining knowledge.

This usually happens through the senses of vision and hearing. However, you can even gain some knowledge by the sense of touch. For example, if you touch a hot item, you will learn not to touch it again when it is hot.

Slow motion experience when diving

Topic: Slow Motion


April 19, 2016

I specifically typed a search for this subject because this happened to me when I was about 6. I wanted to see what info I could find. Your info is the first and only one I've read so far.

I was at the high school swimming pool open to the public everyday during summer. I was dropping/I diving from the high dive then going up one after the other over and over again. The time of the incident when I got to the stop of the stairs my hands being wrr lost their grip and I began to fall

Interestingly, as I fell I was not facing the latter but turned around partly clockwise away from the right of it and there was a boy looking up at me as I was falling.

Everything in slow motion I was aware I was falling, aware of my left hand ad it moved from above my head downward past my face, then my torso. The boy was yelling something and it too was in slow motion

I don't remember what he was saying. Slowing down a motion picture describes it perfectly.

As it turned out my left wrist was cracked as I had used it to brace my fall.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Going in slow motion certainly is something to remember.

It is good that your wrist was not seriously injured.

Dominant senses

Topic: Improving


February 18, 2016

Why a person have one most dominant sense and one least dominant?

Nithin - India



The dominance of the various senses concerns how important each is and how well they function.

Most people get 80% of their information through their vision and probably the least information from the sense of taste.

However, if a person loses the sense of vision, other senses work to make up the difference. Hearing becomes more acute as does the sense of smell.

VA says premonition is mental illness

Topic: 6th Sense


January 11, 2016

Here's a question: How do you convince anyone that having premonitions are normal? Like a big dummy, I let the VA know that I saw 911 in a dream before it happened. Now they give me meds, and think it's a Mental Illness. I wasn't even there for that. I was getting treated for Anxiety. I believe that like myself, if anyone has or had a Traumatic episode in their life, especially that of a head injury, like me, then what takes place is the brain compensates for the Injury, thereby replacing it for a sixth sense that we don't normally use. Does that make sense?

Michael - USA



Some people simply do not believe anything out of the ordinary. It really isn't worth the effort to try to convince them otherwise. Also, considering something in a dream is a sign of a mental illness is simply stupid.

But note that the VA has a pretty poor track record on taking care of their patients. I would think twice about using the medication for mental illness. Medication for anxiety is usually OK.

Most people have glimpses of premonitions--especially in dreams--but often they just let them pass by. It is possible that a head injury could allow you to be more aware of premonitions. It would be interesting to find out if other veterans with head injuries have a greater frequency of seeing future events.

Best wishes in having good health.

I embrace seeing the future

Topic: 6th Sense


January 4, 2016

I see /feel things seconds/hours/ even days before they happen with almost 100% accuracy. I pick up on hurt, pain, emotions.

Examples- 1986- Challenger exploding- dreamed it the day before it happened and then watched it happen live; knowing out of the blue a neighbor having heart attack, things darting in the road ahead before visible, sensing when people are dying or near death, predicting sporting events, sensing turn-overs seconds before they happen in sports, people about to call, getting heebie/jeebies (skin crawls) when passing certain people on the street... been happening since I was a young girl.

It used to be very scary now I embrace it.

Donna - USA



Thanks for sharing your experiences and abilities. Although everyone has this ability to a degree, some are able to foresee the future much better than others. I guess you are much more sensitive to that sense, as well as your other senses.

It is also fortunate that you are able to embrace your special senses.

Trying to get special senses to work again

Topic: General


November 21, 2015

hi I have been trying to get my senses working again I use to see spirits and hear them and talk to them what energy is used to make the minds eye and minds hearing work I was born with gifts and need them back can u help

leela - USA



It seems that the more you try, the less special senses work. One thing to do is to become more aware of your other senses, such as vision, small, and taste. This increased sensitivity can help your other senses.

Recall how you felt when you were using your gifts. The big thing is not to try to force things but let it flow.

I hope that helps.

Seems to have lost 6th sense

Topic: 6th Sense


November 9, 2015

Good Day sir / madam

thanks and regards
Ashok khatri

Khatri - India



Many people have this 6th sense of being able to predict future events. You seem to be more sensitive to the sense than others. One thing that is interesting about this sense is that the harder you try to use it, the less it seems to work.

Usually it will work if you are aware of your other senses and relax, letting things flow. Prayer, yoga, and going to the temple may help you relax and not try to predict things. Then it just seems to happen--many times when you don't expect it.

I hope this helps.

saeed - Iran



The hearing range of birds is most sensitive between 1 kHz and 4 kHz.

Cat hearing is most acute in the range of 500 Hz to 32 kHz.

The range of hearing in dogs is usually around 40 Hz to 60 kHz.

See Hearing Range for a chart of many animals and birds.
