  • Re: Belief in Psychics

    I think Psychics are just people who connect better with their own intuition, and more importantly, listen to it.
    Our fellow mammals have a better sense of it than we do. Their heightened senses (hearing, smell, vision) all go to elevate their intuitive cognisance way above ours.
    We. oh-so-clever human beings that we are, now rely more and more on our intellectual prowess; our abilities to discern, evaluate, distinguish and learn, via media and literature, education and hearsay.
    The intuition that animals have, we also have. It's just that we supress it, and ignore it.
    Let's be honest here, @FairyFeller; have you ever in your life thought something, then not acted upon it, and subsequently thought, "Damn, I knew that would happen!" or "I had a feeling she'd do that!" It's the suspicion before the knowing.

    We used to own a dog - part doberman, part beagle - who instinctively knew when my husband would be coming home.
    And hubby didn't have a regular 9 - 5 job. He was an Office Products Engineer. He used to repair photocopiers, typewriters, fax machines... so depending on where his last call of the day was, he might get home at 5, or even 7pm. Who knew?
    The dog did.
    I'd fill the kettle by Herbie's reckoning. Around 15 minutes before my H got home, he'd lie by the front door.
    Once he knew the car was turning into our road, (about a half mile away), he'd run up onto the settee, under the window, tail wagging. Kettle on.

    He never once got it wrong.
    That's a heck of an instinct. Intuitive, no?

    My mother's pretty good at reading people. She has instincts about them I genuinely envy and admire.
    Me? I see the good in everyone.
    Admirable and virtuous, maybe, but it ain't half led to some idiotic decisions, in the past....
