How often has this happened to you: a song pops into your head. Maybe in the shower, maybe as you are walking down the street. Then you enter a store and it's playing on the speaker or you turn on the car radio and it's on...total weirdness (in such a cool way), right?
It's things like that that make me believe in the powers of our minds to "see" things.
Okay, we've been chatting about trusting our gut and those feelings that we feel that tell us something that reason or logic doesn't provide -- and that is one kind of seeing our minds and instincts provide us. But a distant cousin of instinct and intuition - like the fourth cousin once removed -- is extraordinary perceptions or psychicness (yeah, I know that isn't a word).
Now, there are a lot of psychics out there, folks claiming to see into the future and I know not all of them are on the up and up, as my grandfather would say. But, I think there are folks that have certain pathways to that part of their brain that others don't have access to...the subconscious powers scientists talk about in the regions of our brain we don't use.
Truth be told, I think there are those among us who are naturally psychic...and those, friends, are our kids. I think kids are born with much more openness to things we as adults are closed of to due to past experiences or just growing up and becoming clouded.
Now, I'm not totally wacky with this stuff. I'm not going to ask my kid to predict my future and make decision based on her advice, and I wouldn't do that with someone who claims to be a professional psychic either...but there are moments, happenings, occurrences that can't be explained, that go beyond coincidence.
So, what do you think? Do you believe in psychic powers? Have you ever seen a psychic?
