a) For example, if someone has been fighting, I can feel it. Then it really pisses me off when I ask if everything is okay, and the person says yes but acts grumpy. Later, I hear the person arguing again, and I know I was right.
b) I can immediately tell if my client is having a good or bad day and if they need to talk before getting down to business.
c) Sometimes I can feel negativity, but I don't always know where it's from.
d) We went to our in-laws. They told us there were newborn kittens, and we could not find them. Out of nowhere, I felt as if they might have been killed by my father in law. Afterwards, we saw them and I thought I was going crazy. Then I said, I'm really sorry I felt that way about you, and he said that if he had found them earlier, he would have killed them. I had never heard anything so crazy in my life, and had no way of knowing that. WEIRD SHIT.
e) I can tell if my body is getting sick before it does, but I often deny/ignore it. Now I listen more and generally stave off disaster (big colds, etc.).
f) The atmosphere at a get-together. Either I love it and want to stay forever, or I cannot wait to leave. Sometimes the feeling is so strong that it manifests itself physically (sick stomach, muscle tension, uncontrollable laughter, or smiles)
g) My husband and I went to a restaurant where we sometimes frequent. When we arrived, we both sensed that something was dreadfully wrong. Cold...death...strange, hard to explain as it is not a physical sensation. We could not explain it. We had not seen anyone. NOTHING at all made us think this way, it was as it always had been. But we FELT it. Afterwards the brother (owner) came out, and we asked if something had happened. And he said his sister was undergoing a huge depression. It was SO STRONG that we FELT it...weird shit, huh?
3) Um, usually works well. My feeling is usually correct, but my assumptions about WHY this is the case are not always correct.
It hardly ever works online - only in person, although it sometimes works online. Too impersonal though, really. I need to sense and see the person...
4) I didn't. It's just always been that way. Teaching has helped me to 'relearn' it though insofar as my rational thinking tried to 'explain it away' or 'ignore it' and now I'm noticing how helpful it can be in teaching. Being with my husband has also shown me that I'm not silly or crazy, but just have a different way of 'seeing' things...maybe because my sensory perception is so bad??? Like compensating??? I don't know????
5) Teaching. Interacting with people. But just to re-discover it. I've always done it.
6) WHY OH WHY do people say nothing is wrong when I feel there is??? Is this just me being a dumb-ass or is there really something? Or is it my own negativity I'm feeling??? I need to sort this out. How do I know I'm not just perceiving out my ass? Um, am I the only weird person who is like this? Is this my vivid imagination? Ne gone wild???? Weird jumping to conclusions?
All these doubts make me really wonder if this is real, and so I don't trust it. But I have it. But I don't know if I should ever act on it or trust it. Maybe it's lack of experience. I really don't know.
Any ideas would be helpful to clarify.
Good topic by the way, thanks!
