Gut feelings are a sense that you know something without knowing how you know.
I feel therefore I know
Have you had that inexplicable feeling that someone was staring at you?
Can you recall how it came over you? How you felt it and knew it at your core before you had any proof? And, when you turned around you found that there was someone staring at you? This is an example of your gut knowing something before you could confirm it.
Before 9/11 many people recalled feeling anxious, nervous or upset for no apparent reason. It was only after the terrible events of the day began that the nervousness in their guts subsided. This is an example of your gut knowing something before you do and it has a name: presentiment.
For two weeks prior to 9/11 every time I heard a plane fly overhead it was followed by hearing the sounds of the plane crashing in my mind. I became so upset by this reaction that I thought I was going crazy and had become some morbid and terrible person. It was only after the events of the day unfolded that I realized why I’d been having this reaction.
Seeing before you “see”
Have you ever experienced a sudden “flash” of seeing what your friend would be wearing before you see them? You see them wearing a certain outfit in your mind’s eye before you walk into the restaurant to meet them for lunch. And, when you walk into the restaurant that is the exact outfit they have on.
Random number generators placed around the world are affected at the odds of a billion to one when a large scale global event occurs. At these times, such as on 9/11 or when President Obama was elected, the “randomness” of the numbers is affected. The numbers appearing on the devices stop being so random. This indicates that the high level of emotion created by the world’s population during these events affects the number generators so that they generate a series of similar numbers rather than randomly as they have been programmed to work.
Science is getting closer to explaining what we call our Sixth Sense
Watch this fascinating video, “Through the Wormhole,” narrated by Morgan Freeman about the nature of consciousness, how our thoughts can be picked up by others through the earth’s magnetic field, how our emotions can alter realty and effect random number generators, blindsight and presentiment. I believe each of us uses our gut knowing or sixth sense much more than we believe or are even aware of.
Dr. Dean Radin’s studies of presentiment are especially interesting. The odds that his subjects are detecting future events a few seconds before they actually occur are so high that he concludes that “something interesting is happening here.”
The video is 43 minutes long but well worth watching.
What gut feelings or sixth sensory experiences can you recall? Have experienced presentiment and “felt” something was going to happen before you knew what it was?

It’s time to spread those luscious links of knowledge again.
My collection of links to fascinating articles on Intuition, Meditation and Creativity are ripe and ready for picking.
One of my favorite links in this collection is about how our bodies’ intelligence registers future events long before we’re consciously aware of them. Studies using volunteer gamblers showed that changes in bodily responses indicated that the body was aware and registering the winning deck of cards before the participants could know the outcome. (more…)
I once heard a story about a guy who could get radio channels through his silver fillings.
I thought that this was the coolest thing ever. But, since my mother didn’t allow us to listen to that “devilish rock and roll” I desperately, desperately, wanted a silver filling. The trouble was I was cursed with super-human teeth that never got any cavities!
Fast forward to the present – I’m here to tell you that you don’t need corroded teeth to receive information from the air-waves. Your body is intelligent and has been designed to receive all sorts of non-verbal signals, with our without you being consciously aware of them.
Everyday we receive thousands of impressions, and feelings from our environment and the people around us most of which we aren’t even aware of that help us survive.
Think of our prehistoric ancestors – wouldn’t it have been vital to their safety to “know” if a tiger were stalking them, or feel in their gut if danger was present? It’s the same today – there are still “dangers” in our everyday lives that threaten our survival which is why our intuition communicates with us whether we’re aware of it, or not.
But, if we’re not aware of it because the information isn’t imparted to us verbally, or we aren’t reading it, or hearing it, or seeing it – how are we receiving these impressions and feelings?
News flash: There are numerous other “senses” beyond the 5 senses we’re aware of that impart information to us constantly through our bodies. You are a walking talking intuitive radio receiver, and transmitter whether you know it, and whether you believe it, or not. You are intuitive!
Did you know that in the last decade science discovered “calcite micro-crystals” in the human pineal gland?
And, apparently, calcite micro-crystals have similarities to quartz crystal – which have been used to create all sorts of information technology.
So, could it be that the pineal gland is our “silver filling” for receiving all sorts of information from the electromagnetic fields around us? This is not a proven theory, as yet, but it may well be in the near future.
The pineal gland has been called the “third eye” due to its location in the middle of the brain at the level of the mid forehead.
It’s also the gland associated with the sixth chakra – which has been associated with psychic activity.
Feelings of “directly knowing” something we have no explanation for are imparted to us by way of the sixth chakra.
Ever heard the term “gut feeling?” or “butterflies in the stomach?”
Another area of your body that acts as a receiver is your “gut.” Have you ever experienced the “fight or flight response” in a fearful situation? When your gut is activated you “feel” it.
The solar plexus, or gut where these physical sensations are found has been called, “the second brain.” It’s called the second brain due to the multitude of vital complex functions performed by our digestive system.When our digestive system is out of kilter our immunity suffers – which can leave us susceptible to illness and deadly diseases.
The solar plexus, which is in the area of the naval, is where the third chakra is located.
The third chakra is associated with wisdom, personal power and fulfillment.
“Gut feelings,” or “butterflies in the stomach” are the direct result of your body receiving information and trying to get your attention to analyze this data.
Think about it – when you last had a gut feeling wasn’t it either a warning, or a signal to go ahead with something in your life? Is this not “wisdom?” And, wisdom that directly affects your personal power and fulfillment?
You are intuitive and receiving intuitive impressions all the time, whether you choose to accept it or not.
Receiving information intuitively is necessary and vital to your safety and security.
Here’s a short list of some of the most common ways you receive information intuitively on a daily basis:
1. Have you ever been aware that someone was looking at you? When you turned around you made eye contact with the person who’d been staring, right? How did you know this?
2. Did you ever answer answer the phone “knowing” who was calling? How did you know?
3. Have you ever thought of someone you’ve not seen for a long time and then randomly run into them, or heard from them? Why did you think of them after all that time?
4. Has a thought ever suddenly “stood out” and gotten your attention? You heard something like an inner voice urgently saying: Call Mom! And, even if you ignored it and got involved in something else – it nagged at you until you listened and called mom? This is also a form of “direct knowing.”
5. Were you ever trying to solve a problem in your life when suddenly out of the blue, when you were no longer concentrating on it – the answer came to you and you “knew” it was right?
6. Have you ever sensed something was going to go wrong? Or, had gone wrong? Or something bad had happened? You weren’t sure what but you felt it in your gut?
7. Did you ever meet someone and take an instant like or dislike to them? You just “felt” that you shouldn’t, or should associate with this person?
8. Have you ever sensed you were in danger long before it became obviously apparent? Did that fight or flight response kick in, or its milder early warning system the butterflies in the stomach? If you so you were getting this information via the “second brain.”
9. Were you ever compelled to do something – even though all the so-called experts tried to dissuade you? You just “felt” in your gut that it was the right thing to do and couldn’t shake it until you did it? And, it turned out to be brilliant?
How many of these 9 intuitive responses have you experienced? Has it been valuable to receive information in ways beyond the 5 senses? Has it ever helped you make a decision?

I watched it over the weekend and truly enjoyed it.
To be honest though, I’m already a believer in psychic phenomena since I am a clairvoyant and intuitive by nature, so for me the film was preaching to the choir.
For anyone not familiar with clairvoyance – it’s also been called remote viewing and it’s the ability to “see” with the mind’s eye things at a distance, places, people and objects, one has never viewed or visited physically.In Scheltema’s film it’s defined as: direct knowledge of the physical world.
It covered 5 areas of psychic phenomena that have been researched pretty extensively; telepathy (mind to mind communication), clairvoyance, precognition (knowledge of future events), psychokinesis (mind over matter), and psychic healing (transfer of energy from the healer).
One of the things I found most fascinating was an experiment that showed our bodies respond to future events before we are consciously are aware of what’s going to happen.One experiment was to place people in front of monitors that showed a series of random photos. Some were tranquil scenes and others were more evocative depicting violence or upsetting conditions. Special lenses photographed the pupils of each participant as they viewed the scenes. Amazingly enough their pupils dilated seconds before they viewed the emotionally disturbing scenes on the monitor. Their bodies were reacting before they could possibly have known what was going to appear on the screen. It reminded me of how animals fled to the hills in Thailand before the tsunami hit.
Another experiment I mentioned in an earlier post: Could Your Thoughts Create an Earthquake? was covered in the film. This experiment is ongoing and called the Global Consciousness Project. Random number generators placed all over the world measure large group events. Large events such as the tsunami, or 9/11 influence these random number generators and cause them to veer off course. Normally they’re generating numbers in wandering variability patterns but when these large scale events occur the variability minimizes and the pattern looks very different. In other words it’s no longer random. These number generators have been in place for quite a few years so the randomness is well documented. What this means is that we humans are connected to one another and our emotional response to these massive events changes the conscious field on the planet and significantly affects these random number patterns. Huge spikes were noted around events that evoked compassion and deep feelings of connectedness on these days.
In another experiment on telepathy to see if two people in a close relationship can receive information from mind to mind took couples and placed one of them in an MRI machine that scanned the brain and had the sender sit in front of monitor that generated various flashing lights. The receiver’s brain resonance showed that when the flashing lights were viewed by their partners their brains showed significant activity in their visual cortex. How was their brain reacting to something their partner saw unless there’s some form of mind to mind communication going on? This certainly seems like proof positive to me.
Another part of the film covered remote viewing and I was delighted to learn that some people are professional remote viewers. This was highly encouraging news to me as I often say to my friends what good does it do if I can “see” the inside of your house or cities I’ve never been too? Well, my question was answered in the film. A group of remote viewers got together and tried to find Saddam Hussein when he was in hiding during the Iraq war. They saw that he was near Tekrit and that he was in an underground chamber and described the house that sat on top of the chamber. I found this part of the film really fascinating. Other remote viewers are using their abilities to find ancient cities in a new area of parapsychology called psychic archaeology.
The only part of the film I really didn’t enjoy was the sections dealing with mind over matter. I’ve never been too interested in bending spoons. I do believe we can affect matter, but I wish it could have been illustrated with more scientific data or other experiments other than spoon bending. Perhaps there is no other data? I don’t know, but unfortunately this is the only part of the film I lost interest in.
Other than spoon bending section I did enjoy the film. I also learned a few things I didn’t know. It was also good to know that can science validate some of my own abilities.
If you get a chance to see the film I’d recommend it. It’s 104 minutes and for the most part very informative and entertaining. I only gave you a few tidbits of what fascinated me, but there were many other things too. By the way, if you watch the film you’ll also learn where the strange title came from….check it out.
If any of you watch the film let me know how you liked it.
Many said that it was because they weren’t able to tell the difference between a “fearful daydream” and a premonition.
The confusion was mentioned several times, so here are some pointers on telling the difference between the two.
Premonitions are when we know something is going to happen for no apparent, or conscious reason. We have no knowledge that was given to us about this event – we just know that we know.
In a premonition the information is not something we’ve consciously been dwelling on, as in the case of a fear that your teenage child will get into an accident – that’s a fear we’re aware of.
A premonition APPEARS in the mind – whole and complete. Again, it’s not something you were thinking about. It’s an awareness of an event that was PLACED in the mind – but NOT by you.
In the case of a daydream you already have a fear that something may happen. This fear plays over and over again in your mind making you think it may just be a premonition. After a while you convince yourself it’s true.
In the example I mentioned about the fear your teenage child might get into an accident; if it were a true premonition the finality and the knowing that comes with a premonition would strike suddenly, and you’d just KNOW that this accident had occurred. You wouldn’t have to convince yourself it was true.
It can also feel like a gnawing in the stomach, or butterflies, or a nervousness regarding the issue that doesn’t subside until the event occurs. In this case, your body knows it’s true and reacts. This is hard to duplicate with a fearful daydream. You might feel very upset but it wouldn’t manifest with the same physical symptoms.
In a fearful daydream your not so sure ’cause it’s a thought you created with the rational mind – which is a sign that it’s not a premonition. With premonitions YOU KNOW and it arises spontaneously without any influence from the rational mind.
I had this dream 3 months before my father died and while he was perfectly healthy. There was no reason to suspect he’d die so soon. After I awoke I “knew” I was going to lose my father. My first thought was – this is the year I’m going to lose my father. I didn’t want it to be true, but I knew no matter how much I tried to convince myself otherwise (and I did) or how healthy he was at the time of the dream that it was going to happen that year.
Around the time of 9/ll many people had premonitions about something happening. Many were premonitions like mine (I describe this in my previous post) that were non-specific. The common thing about all premonitions is that they come out of the blue. I wasn’t thinking about plane crashes when I began hearing plane crash sounds in my head.
The next time you work yourself up into a tizzy and worry that you’re not sure if you’ve had a premonition or fearful daydream try this:
1. Go sit somewhere quiet where you can relax. Close your eyes and take in some very deep breaths – make sure your stomach balloons out. Hold for a second or two then release. Do this until you feel calmer.
2. See in your mind’s eye a screen – like a movie screen at the theater. It’s white and rectangular and blank.
3. Tell yourself you’re going to ask a yes or no question and you want to see a traffic light on your screen. If the answer is yes the light will be green. If the answer is no the light will be red.
4. Now relax again, breathe some more. Be comfortable and when you’re ready ask yourself: Am I having a premonition of something that’s going to happen?
5. Focus on seeing the traffic light. It may come very very fast. Or you may just see a green or red color. Be aware it may come as a voice too. You may hear “yes” or feel “no.” It can very subtle so be on high alert.
What did you see? Was it a red light or a green light? If it was a red light allow yourself to relax knowing that you don’t have to be scared any longer. It was just your fears creating a scenario that isn’t going to happen.
