I have dreams that come true!
April 30, 2011
Please help me to understand why I have dreams that come true! I talk about people and they appear. I can sense danger! I can tell good people from bad people!
I had a dream who murdered my a mother-in-law never new his name only what he looked like until the following week when I saw this person in the newspaper and he was the man who murder her and I saw just what he did to her in my dream!
Another thing is tonight at Walmart store I saw 2 girls and I said to the one girl I like the way you have your toenails painted. When she turned around I ask her Is your mothers name Jennifer? The one girl asks me how did you know that? I said I just knew. I never saw either girl before in my life. I even knew the mothers last name!
So many things in life are happening and I already know the answer! In my heart it is scary. Because each day it gets stronger and stronger and it scares me because I already know the answer! Why do these things happen to me? People tell me I have the psychic abilities - Please help me find the right answer! Thank you from the deepest part of my heart and God Bless and keep you safe!
P. S. When a crime happens or someone is doing something wrong I'm always there to see it happened. Sometimes what happens to me makes me cry because it is so scary to know something about someone.
Just like when my son was involved in a accident-I felt it by going into my closet and getting his baby book out and going through it and taking the blessed mother bandanna he gave me and hanging it on the American Flag at the same time 11/01/2009 at 12:30 PM is when he was struck by a train. I was praying and crying and had no idea what was happening until the Police came knocking on my door-at first I thought they were there to tell me my car was hit! But instead at 8:20 PM 11/01/2009 they delivered the news to me that my son was in critical condition, all in one piece and in surgery, then it made sense to me.
I have dreams that happen and I don't know they are going to come true until the time it does happen! Why are these things happening to me! I can feel vibes when things are wrong or if something is going to happen-I can tell before things happen? What can I do, Please help me to understand!

People experience the 6th sense or foreseeing future events through a "feeling" they get or sometimes through dreams. Everyone has this sense, although some have it stringer than others or are more sensitive to the sense.
In fact, some people have the such a strong 6th sense that it becomes bothersome to them, since they are always seeing future events. A way for them to lessen the effect is to actually "try" to see things in the future. When you try to do it, for some reason it does not work well. That is why it is difficult to measure the effect.
Unless your 6th sense bothers you, be aware of it and enjoy the good and the bad of it. Otherwise, try to see future to lessen your ability.
I get bad feelings about a specific people
April 30, 2011
I get bad feelings about a specific people...is there any way for me to figure out exactly when and what will happin?
Jakelin - USA (21535)
With the 6th sense, the more you try, the less it works.
Feelings you get about people may be seeing possible negative future actions from them. But also, you can have some intuition about people by the way they behave.
Sometimes you can just see a person and not feel good about him or her. It could be your 6th sense or reading their body language.
If you get the bad feelings, don't judge the person, but be alert about him or her.
Niece may have seen spirit of dead mother
April 28, 2011
hi.my mother died 4 years now in july.my neice has been sick for the last 3/4/weeks and has been put on medication.since she became sick she has been able to see my mother[but she is terrified to talk to anyone even her mother].is this a case of the 6th sense.i need more info as my mother and i were very close.and i miss her.help if you can .
kevin - UK (21522)
Our definition of the 6th sense is seeing into the future. However, there are people who seem to be able to see spirits or loved ones who have died.
You niece may have been able to see the spirit of your mother. But then again, it is possible that the medication caused her to see such things. It is really difficult to know what is really happening.
However, if you assume your niece did see you mother, you can tell your niece that if she sees your mother again, she should tell her you miss her.
Losing control of your body
April 21, 2011
if a person lost his or her control on his or her body so how can he or she recover his or her control on him....??
ashish - India (21502)
Some people lose one or more of their senses and are able to compensate with the other senses. However, losing control of the body can be muscular or nerve issues. There are diseases that cause such problems and are difficult to heal, even with medication.
I have "visions" of the future
April 13, 2011
i have "visions" of the future but i cant tell if its just my imagination or an atual vision and sometimes my imagination simulates a visions so it feels the same. how can i tell if its my imagination or not?
austin - USA (21483)
It is just like with dreams. Sometimes they seem so real but never happen, while other times you have a dream that predicts the future and comes true. But also, it may come true years from now.
If you see something happen and you say, "Wait a minute! I had a vision of that a while ago!" Then it is your 6th sense working.
However, if your imaginations creates these visions, perhaps it will create the reality too.
Saw figure walk through wall
April 12, 2011
Somebody told me that I miqht have a sixth sense. I was on the phone with him and I saw a black figure walk through my wall or into to the mirror hanging on my wall. I also have a very good understanding of peoples emotions and how they act. (Even if I don't know them) I just never follow my hunch on people or issues, because I second guess myself alot. I just want to know if I have this sixth sense. I allways been interested in the paranormal, I just hope my friend was lying about this. Otherwise, I could have serious issues. Another thing I forqot to mention is that, I see things alot and hear things. I don't know if this could more signs. i don't know. I just need some insight on what's going on.
Diana - USA (21473)
What we call the 6th sense or precognition is being able to foresee future events. Seeing a figure walk through the wall sound more like being able to sense spirits, a sense that some people claim to have.
You could have extra-sensitive senses. Often people who are more sensitive to their senses are able to use senses that most people don't realize they have.
Have better hearing for low frequency sounds
March 25, 2011
I have been tested my hearing and told that I have better hearing for low frequency sounds. What does this mean? What exactly can I hear?
- UK (21387)
Having better hearing for low frequency sounds means that you can hear the deep vibrations from musical instruments and other sources better than the average person. A normal human can hear down to 20 Hz. You probably exceed that range.
Mildly autistic with Aspergers Syndrome
March 23, 2011
I'm a mildly autistic child with Aspergers Syndrome. I can see colors when I play piano and have taught myself to play by ear. I'm also curious id this has a role in the health of my brain. You see, I had a tumor in the lower right portion of my brain in the occipital lobe. This area affects my left periffereal vision. Could this mean that I have a very special ability that others don't. Oh, I can also write songs and remember them in my head. I do often have times where I felt like I was doing sometthing again, like de ja vu. I also feel like I know that there is a divine power much higher than me.
Adam - USA (21374)
You surely have some extended talents due to your synesthesia and perhaps your autism. However, I haven't heard that synesthesia relates to getting brain tumors.
People who have the 6th sense of precognition and deja vu, are often more sensitive to their senses, as are those with synesthesia.
Looking beyond our common senses can be evidence that there is more to life than we think. It can indicate our spiritual nature and a divine power.
Reading about the shape of faces
March 9, 2011
Practising Telephathy & hypnotism with few reading about shape of the faces, the nature of the person, concentrating on the talk of others, any body can read others and even can tell what's there in other brain, that is awakening of the sixth sense
Dharam Vir - India (21309)
Our definition of the sixth sense is foreseeing future events. It is also called precognition.
In Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), studying the expressions and body postures is used to get a good idea about what the person is thinking. The method used is to mirror the person as much as you can, in order to get your mind in the same thinking pattern.
The study of the shape of faces might indicate personality. However, different nationalities have different shapes of their faces, so it is questionable whether facial shape is effective in gaining information.
What is the most common type of 6th sense?
February 10, 2011
What is the most common type of 6th sense?
Niyas - India (21174)
We define the 6th sense as being able to foresee future events and to perhaps also see events from the past. It is also called precognition and is the most common and strongest of the special senses. Few people are able sense magnetic fields or auras.
Experience when 5 or 6 years old
January 23, 2011
My first experience and my last was when I was 5 or 6 years old. I know this because during these ages I only remember events that really made an impact in my life. I was in my grandpas house on the back yard, the back yard was extremely big and I remember seeing 2 of my girl cousins, sister, and brother. In the middle of the back yard there was an old rusty barrel it was pretty tall, the barrel was used to put all the dead leaves from the yard. As a noisy little girl that I was I remember that I was pulling out the leaves from the barrel then one of my girl cousin came to help me take them out then out of nowhere she pulls a very big old doll head it was more like a baby doll with few hair, in that moment I got extremely scared because my cousin made a scary noise and pushed it on my face, so I was terrified and started to run but i felt as if I was running very very very slow i could not hear anything except my hearth beat i heard it very loud. I was heading to my aunts neighbor because my aunt the one that was taking care of me was in front of my grandpas house so I thought I was never going to get there I was trying to explain to her when I got to her but she was just like it's ok nothings wrong . The slow motion did not felt like if it was half a second I would say something slower than that I also rem trying to blink felt like eternity I felt like if I was out of this world .

Thanks for sharing your experience. It is a strange phenomenon.
How to improve my 6th sense?
January 18, 2011
i am very much interested in 6th sense pls guide me how to improve my 6th sense
- India (21034)
Recall when you have felt or dreamt that something would happen and then it came true. Being aware of such a feeling and trying to duplicate it will help it happen again. However, this does not mean to try to see the future. It is duplicating the feeling when you have used your 6th sense.
Examples of the 6th sense
January 5, 2011
what are some examples of the 6th sence
Doni - Cameroon (20968)
Times when you have a feeling or a dream that something will happen, and then it comes true, are examples of the 6th sense. Sometimes people will just sense that something will happen and then it comes true.
Help me find my 6th sense
December 30, 2010
testing on a mini i was nt aware about the sixth sense that i have so plz help me out to find out my own sixth sense
the mini test provided is vry much useful just plz assist me too
Aanam - India (20930)
Think of times when you thought or felt that something would happen and then it came true. Sometimes it may have been a dream that came true. Those were times when your 6th sense was in action.
Trying to guess usually does not work with the 6th sense. Instead, you simply get a feeling. Try to remember the feeling you had, and it will help you.
Cross-sense associations in synesthesia
December 15, 2010
I am a lifelong synasthete that like other readers experiences more than cross-sense phenomena, also experiencing sensate awareness of others' emotions, animals' feelings, and subtle ("psychic") cues. For example, when a person I love is in danger, I will get an electical/burnt smell. I can also smell and see the color of pain. My synesthesia extends to feeling, seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting music, letters, numbers, and words.
My synasthaesia is in some aspects so acute that when I experience it I can pinpoint where the associations between senses arose. For this reason, I believe synasthaesia may be a phenomenon for learning and future identification. For example, the word "sin" tastes like cinnamon to me. Clearly this synesthetic association arose from the likeness of the sounds of the words. What's more, the association brings up a memory of a cinnamon gum my mother always carried in her purse when I was little. This carries to another synasthaetic experience of the word "money", because the first paper money I ever held smelled like that cinnamon gum in my mother's purse. The word "money" for me therefore invokes the smell to this day. The letter "b" tastes like Campbell's alphabet soup and is the same orangey red color - because I have a first memory of seeing a "B" in the soup when little. I believe synasthetes retain associations but may lose the memories of how they formed.
The above are simple examples, but I have extremely complex cross-sense associations that are multiple in nature and extend into very subtle, even "psychic" realms. For this reason I suspect that the cross-sense phenomenon could be a mechanism for the brain to identify very specific "shades" of general things without using words, because words do not make slight distinctions. Moreover, non-word identification could have been necessary for man before the inception of language and for animals as well. Perhaps this is how dogs sense what people often cannot, and why synasthetes are among those who can. I also distinguish musical notes and timbres based on colors and other associations; I used to know a friend's voice in the alto section of choir because hers was a beautiful cranberry juice red. This could have been my way - and are others' way also - of perceiving/identifying very subtle differences, like "Kristin's voice" and "clear red tone" all at once for the benefit of perceiving the distinctions.
Deborah - USA (20854)
Thanks for sharing your experiences with synesthesia.
Although people and animals can often sense emotional states in a person due to subtle clues from tone of voice, body posture, smells and such, there are cases where animals can sense such things at a distance. There has been studies on how dogs can sense when their owners are coming home, even non-regular times.
Our premise is that there are more than the five senses, including sensing electrical fields, sensing future events, among others. Your comments on cross-sense associations in synesthesia may be a way to find out more about some of these other sense people seem to have, including such things as psychic senses.
It is certainly something worth looking into in more detail.
Best wishes in enjoying your special abilities.
