Is it just me ?

January 12, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

This was not the first time something like this was happening …..but this time around three times in a row under 12 hours was no mere co-incidence. I knew i wasnt guessing …..211.jpg

Its a mixed feeling when you know or get a hint that something is gonna happen and it really does ….. you are left in a state where your mind is more than just confused. It starts churning out questions that you would rather be happy not answering….. but a few of them continue to haunt you like “ Was it meant for you to know before it happened ? ” , “ Was it just a co-incidence this time ? ” ….. the worst of all “ Was there something you could do to change it ? ”

When i was taking opinions of different people about this ( mostly friends and colleagues …..ie people around my age ) many people speak of instances of “knowing” things….. but have no clue as to how or why. You ask them to explain, the answer you get would be “ I dont know how or why, but i know ! ” . On the other hand a few of them have a different understanding of this . Its not like you have been expecting something to happen though you know it wouldnt under usual circumstances, and it actually does ….. also its not like you are wishing for it( what you want to hear or see happening ) and it happens….. Its like something thats totally irrelevant for you at one instance and you probably hadnt even thought abt it untill then ….. suddenly something tells you that it will happen …..and it does …..

It could be predicting an incident, a message form a friend , an accident ,singing a song and it comes on the radio , something or someone comes into your mind and the next moment, its right in front of your eyes, “ guessing ” something….. anything, just about anything. Such incidents are freaky, but just about everyone seems to have them.

Some call it sixth sense or ESP (extrasensory perception), Intuition , deja’ vu…..etc, but more scientifically its known as “Clairvoyance” .

My definition/explanaion : Somewhere deep down in some dusty corner of our minds there is something that tells us before things happen, as some put it …..“ Everything happens twice in this world, once in your mind and then in the real world ”.

Some claim they have strange feelings about future ,that something will be happening soon. And vaguely, they know what would happen. For some reason, they usually are predicting something bad. Perhaps that’s because bad incidents are more emotionally taxing and tend to leave a deeper impression on the mind, that the mind gets alarms from all directions….. I am sure many of us would have said this to ourselves “ Something about todays doesnt seem right….. ”

Others have dreams about future events ,they say they have had dreams that later came true to a certain degree. ( déjà vu…..correct me if i am wrong ) Often what they see isn’t exact, but close enough. It could be a coincidence that you had this dream and it seemed to come true, but it is more likely that your “ sixth ” sense foresaw this event. It is freaky when a dream comes true. But often you don’t remember them until just when they happen.

PS: Abraham Lincoln is said to have dreamt of his death, days before he was assassinated.

But the best of all and my favourite is that a couple of them claimed to have this ability to sense the presence of spirits or ghosts !!!!!and that they have actually seen such apparitions. By no means am i ridiculing them, with all due respect i believe them and their senses as much as i believe mine !!

Reading people’s minds, this sure gets me excited ,it sure would be fun to be able to read people’s mind. A small number of people also claim to have the ability to read another person’s mind. Personally i feel there are so many other factors that can help a person do this like body language, knowing the nature of the person whose mind you are trying to read, your last experience ( a fight, a dialogue, a joke shared…..etc ) with that person, so people get indications from these factors. And if you know that person very well and are in tune with each other, you can often tell what he or she is thinking in many situations. This may be because you both think alike, although i wudnt challenge the possibility that a few of you are actually reading his or her mind.

To sum it all up, Its not somethign to feel special abt cos it leaves u wondering if its a gift or a curse ? But nonetheless i would say apart from the five basic senses, there is a sixth sense, where people can see into the future either through some feeling or through a dream or read peoples mind and that this is a sense, where we are able to detect outside “ energy” or “ signals ” as some may want to put it , but being equally helpless to influence events or other people.

    Coincidence is something i have always wondered about. It is awesome yet freaky. Let me know your thoughts upon that too! Nice post! Welcome to the blogging world!

    Man welcome to the Blogging world 🙂

    Super cool post dude, Frankly its something I too think of from time to time. Its like you hear the phone ringing and you have an idea who is on the other end.

    We can look at it in two ways, maybe its ESP or how often do we get it right? I dont remember the number of times I think its a particular persons call and pick it up to find its not… maybe its just a case of odds… you remember when ever u predict it and forget the times you dont get it right.

    I dont know if u hv seen the movie “Everybody Says Im Fine”. Its about a barber who can read minds when he is cutting ppl’s hair… I loved the movie and after that I am always concious going to the barber 😛

    Can we actually read other people’s minds?People are too complex to read them so easily…maybe u can read their thoughts at that instant,but not them.I guess its more to do with how much u r in tune with them and ur observation and perceptiveness…….

    “Not every gift is a blessing”
    Hmm very true….Espcially wrt to predicting something..if it is bad and u can’t do anything to prevent it…thats a very bad situation to be in…coz its happening right in front of u(or is going to happen) and u are powerless to stop it.Makes u feel its good we dont know whats gonna happen in future,that way life is more interesting and u can fight against all odds until u achieve what u want,coz the result is a secret which makes u give ur best.

    I seriously regret the delay in responding back to all your valuable comments… 😦

    Navya : Thank u !! 🙂

    Swetha: Yup , i agree…a debatable topic this one…will get back to you on this

    Haas : Thanks haas !! 🙂 you r right in a way , that its a case of odds when you are expecting a call or hope/wished someone called …there is an element of “your liking” in it , but on the contrary if its just a thought crossing ur mind that u wud get a call and then the phone rings….seems like a very thin line but a world apart !! let me know …

    Anonymous : Thank you !!

    PS: I wud appretiate it if u cud leave ur name next time !!

    Brilliant !!!But boy was that loooooong !!! 🙂

    “……….we modify our memories for our own convenience, creating a connection where it may not have existed………..” [Page 2]

    well , this is when we r not aware of the big picture and want an answer so try impatently to arrive at one immediately ….. i have had such incidences , where i have realised later that what i had concluded earlier was cos i wished for it ….

    The example of the early warning systems on aircrafts is just an ingenious idea !!! [Page 7]

    Truely , there are limitless possibilities where, all this might come in handy …

    Its really great that so much of research is going into this , but what we forget time and again is that there is line beyond which science fails to explain such phenomenon … we got to accept a few things as they are …its about trying to feel/sense/experience it … not to try to understand it …. its like one of those sublime feelings ..

    I wud really really really appreiciate it  had u left ur name !!! 😦

    Thank u !!!

    “But what we forget time and again is that there is line beyond which science fails to explain such phenomenon “-very true…There are so many things out there which science will never be able to explain.Science can never explain how a mother can sense when her child is in danger,it can never explain how ppl have survived even after being declared by the doctors that the person has no chances of survival,it can never explain how faith has healed someone…..Because not everything is explained by logic or reasoning…some things u just have to accept…or experience to believe it..

    Precicely … reminds me of the movie “The Forgotten”… undoubtedly one of the better thought provoking movies i have seen offlate ….. not a very successfull movie , but i did find it intresting …..

    hey finally watched “Forgotten”….found it a bit slow paced…but definetely interesting…Just goes to show that the relation btw parents and offspring is something so strong,it defies science.Funny how so many things in life cannot be explained by science or logic,nonetheless they exist……
