Bloganuary Day 17
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the power of the gut feeling. Most of us have it. We’ve often said or heard, “follow your gut” or “I should’ve listened to my gut”. I call that part of my sixth sense. It’s also not the proprioception that you may or may not know about. I’m also not talking about digestive issues for those of you who may be confused.
I’m talking about that tummy churning feeling when something doesn’t feel right. It’s the other worldly feeling when you know or have an idea of what’s going to happen. It’s the prediction of occurrences, it’s the ability to perceive the character of the types of people you interact with, it’s inclusive of what some people from Jamaica call goat-mouthing/goat-mouting. Some call it having visions and others call it seeing alternate endings while few say premonitions. I just call it a having a sixth sense.
Be warned. From here, this goes into a mini rant mixed with my bits of entitlement.
I did a basic search on the interwebs and found this definition of a sixth sense:
Extrasensory perception; the ability to sense things by means other than the known bodily senses. The definition of a sixth sense is an extra sense, often thought of as perception or intuition. An example of a sixth sense is the ability to communicate with those who have passed on.https://www.yourdictionary.com/sixth-sense
Based on that,I can say that I’ve sort of unlocked that superpower. However, it scares me sometimes. The fright comes when my sights, smells and feelings get so strong that I can literally say what will happen and then they actually do.
Because I’ve had situations where I either heard what others haven’t heard, seen what others haven’t laid eyes on, smelt what others couldn’t pick up in their air, felt feelings and surfaces that no one has ever touched or felt and I’ve had vividly scary and real life telling dreams.
It’s hard to explain but it happens to me at the weirdest times. So for example, I’ve seen darkness over some people and it turned out later that they committed a violent act. I kid you not.
That aside, if it was at all possible, I’d love to be able to tap more into my sixth sense and actually know what’s coming so that I may prepare and know how to handle it. I’d also love to prepare and brace for it to happen. That’s all I want. So far, my sixth sense has just hinted at what will happen but not what will. It’s annoying.
Don’t tease me. Tell me or leave me alone, damnit.
I don’t want to avoid anything cause what is to be will be, right. But, good gosh, man! As a borderline A type personality, having control of outcomes gives me a high. It satisfies my ego and quietens the endless battle among my id, ego and superego. It also gives me greater clarity.
Now, for all you smarty pants people ready to tell me that no one can truly control the future, just shut it. Shut it! I don’t care about that. Show me the way so that I can prepare. That’s all I ask.
Also, have you seen the movie ‘The Sixth Sense’ with Bruce Willis and Haley Joel Osment? No? You should!
