Have you ever had a psychic experience?

I don't know what made me think of this...just curious if any of you believe in astrology or psychics?

Nope total bunk - your life is what you make of it, nothing more and nothing less.

not so much in psychics/astrology - but I beleive in intuition/gut instinct - it is impossible to be a skilled clinician without it
plus I find God a whole lot more mysterious than any of the psychics could ever be

I don't know how psychic this is, but I sometimes get a song in my head seconds before it comes on the radio.

I occasionally have random dreams, then a few days later something from the dream plays out in real life

I had a feeling you were going to ask this question.

I've have had a few of those deja vu experiences before. Theya er quiet qeird. I know they have to do with chemical imbalances in your brain, but they are weird nontheless.

I usually know who's on the phone before I answer it...and no, not because of caller ID! Otherwise I should always go with a gut feeling because if I don't, something bad or annoying happens that probably wouldn't have if I'd gone with my gut.

An interesting book about these little "psychic moments" is The Sense of Being Stared At by Rupert Sheldrake. He had a good theory I'm far too sleepy to get into now about turning your attention toward someone.

mine are more like I think about someone and then a day or so later they contact me or their name is mentioned by someone else. Or I think about something, like a movie I haven't thought about in years, and then a day or so later it's on TV. Just weird things like that but it's happens alot. In fact I hadn't heard from one of my high school friends in almost a year and a few weeks ago I saw one of my cousin's and she asked how my friend was doing. I thought about emailing my friend after that conversation but never got around to it. A few days later my friend emailed me to say she's been thinking about me alot lately.

Could you elaborate on his theory when you are not sleepy?

I think his theory basically states that humans originally had a great need for their 'sixth sense,' (we're talking way, way back in the evolution line). It helped them survive in the very dangerous prehistoric world. But as we've developed speech and so many other ways of communicating, most of us no longer use or pay attention to this sixth sense.

Among other things, he has done experiments on whether a person isolated in a room can tell when someone is staring at them. I believe he has also done a lot of research into this sixth sense in animals, e.g., dogs and cats being able to sense when their owner is on their way home, when their owner is ill, etc.

I certainly believe that humans have this extra-sensory capability. We dismiss a lot of it, though, as coincidence. If you take the time to think about these 'coincidences,' you may decide that something else was at work.
