6th sense....

  1. OK, I just realised I started a new thread in the wrong forum...anyway my question was : Do you sometimes feel that something is going to happen (death, crash...) and it happens for real??? And do you feel sometimes during critical situations you're not alone, like there is somebody else but you can't see anybody?? It happens to me... some of my co-workers call that bad luck...Please share your experiences...This is very confusing for me!

    I call it intuition and ALWAYS trust it.

    YES, I do. Kinda freaky, isn't it?

    I will dream about someone out of the blue. Then find out within the week that the person or someone close to them is going through a life event of particular significance. Such as, a divorce, an accident, sometimes good things, etc.

    Or I'll get the urge to call or write a letter to someone I haven't spoken to in a long time. Then, within the week...you guessed it.

    Or when the phone rings I'll know before anyone picks it up (no, not the caller ID! ) that something wrong has happened, as in a specific event. For example, when I was younger I stayed with my father for the summers. One Sunday morning, I was still in bed, the phone rang...the instant the third ring came I knew something had happened to my mom. I automatically knew she had been in a car accident, I pictured a median in the road and another car.
    Sure enough, my dad came into my room and told me she had been in an accident, but she was okay. The accident included another car and a median. :stone I was twelve years old.

    So, no, I don't think its bad. Just makes you unique! My "experiences" started when my grandmother had passed away from cancer. I feel as though she's my "somebody else."

    I am very intuitive and have been all my life. I have been a nurse for 20 years and the docs I work with closely trust that intuition. (They have a hard time swallowing a dose of "I told you so." ). Sometimes it can be scary though!

    Yes I believe. I could cite many examples, but one of the more recent and tragic occurred on 9/11. I rarely if ever watch television, and NEVER in the morning. I was off that day and had a doctor's appointment later that morning. I didn't sleep well the night before and was feeling rather lethargic when I woke up. I don't know what possessed me to turn on the TV, but I did a few minutes before the first plane crashed into the tower. Needless to say I didn't go to the doctor that morning.

    Another time I had a surgery scheduled and became very uncomfortable as I approached that date, not because I feared the surgery, instead because I was uneasy about boarding my dog for the first time in her life. She died while I was in the hospital and to this day I have not forgiven myself. My sixth sense knew better, but I ignored her anyway. I always listen now. Always!

    I sometimes I've for no reason gone into a room and found either a patient on the floor or in distress of some sort. Weird.

    I have "radared in " on an arrest. Walked into a room and suddenly you just KNOW there is something wrong , scan the patients and then you see the arrest. Oh ! Yeah! I have lots and lots of talles of this sort of thing - just knowing something is wrong - sometimes it is a collection of probables that you are wrking form and soemtimes it is just plain intuition. Have I been wrong - yes. Happened the other day three nurses in a row felt uneasy about a patient - we got up the doc. She was OK in the end but did we head something off? Hard to say. A little bit of extra suspicion does no harm.
