Ever heard of “The Sixth Sense”, but I’m not talking about the movie here. Although that movie was pretty cool, there actually is a “sixth sense”, but many people have different views on what exactly it is.
The conscious mind is something that has been pretty well explored and there is a bunch of known information on the workings of it. But when we start digging into the unconscious mind, or subconscious, things begin to get a little hazy.
The world of science is constantly experimenting and performing studies in order to unlock the workings of the subconscious mind. What is known for sure is that it seems to work without any help from our bodies. The unconscious mind has the ability to problem solve, dream, foresee glimpses into the future and even unknowingly make predictions or move objects.
It has been a life long search to discover the inner workings and gain some control over how these things work, but very few have actually succeeded. When we sleep, our conscious minds are at rest, but our unconscious minds continue to work diligently. Could you imagine the possibilities if we were able to control this?
The commonly known human senses are sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing. So that’s five senses, what is this “sixth sense” we keep talking about? The sixth sense is actually known as ESP, or extrasensory perception. Is it possible that this is an actual unexplored sense of the human body, or is it just that our other five senses are sensitive to more than we think?
Extrasensory Perception (ESP)
There is little doubt that ESP actually exists, but how does it work? Basically what it is, is when someone receives information without the use of their other five senses. Telepathy and fortune telling are also said to be included within the realm of the sixth sense.
Some say that ESP also has some physical attributes to it. For instance, our noses have the ability to pick up on subtle variations in the Earth’s magnetic field. This is possibly the “sense of direction” that some people are said to have. We may also be able to detect changes in the Earth’s barometric pressure and vibrations that move through the Earth. Even though we may not knowingly be able to interpret these “feelings” our brains are still working to process them.
I’ve Been Here Before (Deja Vu)
Have you ever heard someone say, “Ohh, Deja Vu”? Deja Vu is a very strange feeling and is basically the mind telling itself, I’ve seen this before, or something may seem very familiar with a certain situation. It doesn’t act like a normal memory would, for instance, part way into a movie you realize you’ve already seen it. It’s more of a feeling, your mind recognizes a certain situation, but in reality you know you’ve never been there before.
Some people say this is due to having lived this life once before. They say that we live our lives over and over again, or possibly it’s a shadow left behind from another parallel dimension. It is also possible that the unconscious mind recognizes the moment for a split second before the conscious mind has a chance to catch up. When it does reach the conscious mind, we then believe it to be a memory instead.
This is all very confusing and it’s no wonder we have yet to discover the true meanings to all this. Maybe we actually have lived a similar life before, but maybe in a parallel dimension and the two momentarily overlap each other. Until the unconscious mind is fully discovered, we may never know the true reasons for Deja Vu. But the mystery is all part of the fun in my eyes.
Did you Say Something? (Telepathy)
Have you ever said something at the exact same time as someone else? Normally this happens with two people that have been around each other quite a bit. Some people say it’s just because they begin thinking alike, but some may call it telepathy.
Telepathy is and idea or image that is transferred between two people by using the mind. This can sometimes occur over great distances, such as when a Mother knows when her child has been hurt. Normally this is considered something uniquely special and is normally associated with psychics and mystics. But I believe if someone is keen to the ability and can develop their ability and learn to channel it, then anyone can experience this phenomenon.
There are many magicians that fake their telepathic powers as a part of their show. So this has created a wide spread belief that this is all hocus pocus. But it’s not hard to believe when you pick up the phone right as it’s ringing, or when you know a friend has just pulled up in front of your house.
I for one believe that most of these things do in fact have some truth to them. I don’t think these are talents that can be controlled perfectly, but the human brain is quite a complex organ. There are many, many parts of the brain that have yet to be discovered or understood, but I think we are the only ones capable of judging the capabilities of our own minds. Everyone is different and what one person may experience is not the same as others. But there’s no doubt that science will continue to dig into the human mind in hope of finding out exactly what makes it tick.

a very good read, thank you.

Thank You Jimmy, glad you enjoyed it.
I have a question for Robert Tuttle.. Since I can remember from the age eight I experianced strange things things in my dreams. At first it was only glimps of pictures and later it became visions seeing things while I sleep. And after a while it comes true, my pictures and short visions I get becomes life at a certian time. My mother says its demonic and like all christians they prayed for me but it didn’t go away, others say its deja vu. I believe its deja vu because when it happens I feel like i have been through this before. I have done this I know whats going to happen next. I only got it about random people that involes me and just about me alone doing something at that time that I saw in my dream.(But I don’t remember my dream when I have it. When I experiance deja vu then I remember it.) But now it isn’t just about me I see my family, people I loved, friends I see things that we have never done before that happens and I rememeber I had that dream. I want to know is it deja vu or what is it?
Well Jerome, I certainly wouldn’t say what you’re experiencing is something demonic.
It appears that you may have sensitivity to premonition. Deja Vu can come in many forms either by something you have experienced in a dream, a past life, or something you’ve imagined. It can also be the revisiting of a familiar place that you have once forgotten.
Some people believe that Deja Vu is similar to a skip in time, a sort of replay of events that have just happened.
But when you experience things in a dream that eventually come true I would not consider this Deja Vu. Even though the experience may feel like Deja Vu, I believe there is something greater at work.
I have been working on a dream series for some time and it is far from complete. But there is a particular write up I did called Dreams, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. There is a section towards the end of that post that may help you. But all in all I believe you are having something more commonly known as premonitions. Thanks a bunch for sharing your experiences with us, I hope this helps you in some way.
I have had these strange deja vu feelings since childhood too. Although when I would see them before it happened, it didn’t bother me, but when I did experience what I saw, I got sick, like very sick, would pass out from almost a feeling of pure exhaustion, or would get TERRIBLE splitting headaches. This went on for years, until circumstances had me stop taking the medication I was on, They went away for almost a decade, but came back about 6 years ago, so are mild, some don’t even phase me, but once in awhile, a crazy powerful vision rocks my senses, and I am right back at square one again. Just seeing if anyone has EVER experienced anything like this.
I do believe in this.
It is all part of the sub-conscious mind.
I think even dreams forms part of this.
Oh yes, I most certainly believe a lot of the images or premonitions occur during dreaming. I’m going to do a write up on dreams pretty soon. I’ve been doing some research on them, should be interesting.
I think my mom has ESP. She usually dreams up things and it happens sometimes. I’m probably born with it too. Like last night I dreamt of ice cream and I’m sure I’m gonna buy ice cream after work! lol!
haha, now that’s using your powers wisely!
Really good post. I’m in the middle of writing a novel on this at the moment
Hey that’s really awesome! There definitely is enough on the subject to be told in a book. I’ll check out your link 🙂
I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and have my children check up here often. I am quite sure they will learn lots of new stuff here than anybody else!
That’s great! I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. I’ll be sure to keep the good stuff coming. 🙂
I too, like Jerome, tend to have the dreams that seem to predict future moments. However, many of my dreams are very vivid in detail and I have, at many times, been able to concentrate and actually READ whatever I may be looking at whether it be a sign or even a book. One instance in particular, I remember reading a Bible in my dream and was able to see the words as I read them. Maybe two days or so later, a friend of mine had asked me a question pertaining to the Bible. So I grabbed mine and to my astonishment, I had turned directly to the same page as in my dream and the feeling of Deja Vu had set in when I noticed I was now reading the EXACT words how I remembered them from my dream. I know this will happen again sometime but I don’t know when. Maybe if I can learn to pay closer attention to more details, then maybe I can, in turn, be able to learn the meanings…? In your studies, have you come across any exercises to refine these certain abilities? I am greatly intrigued about this and would love to learn more…
Hi Derek, thanks so much for sharing your experience with dreams and deja vu. These are always very weird feeling moments but it is possible to dig a little deeper into your unconscious mind in hopes of finding a meaning. Take a look at my post Program your Mind for Dream Recall, I go over some exercises that may help you to remember your dreams better and by keeping a log there’s no telling what you may discover.
There is also a series I’ve started called the Dream Series it may be helpful to read some of these posts. I will be adding more in the series as time goes on.
Hope this helps.
I’ve been having some dreams for the past several years (every time I close my eyes to sleep or nap) that I would go to the same town and place. When I go there I work, have a home life and do the same stuff as I would do in real life. When I wake up I feel tired (like I have working in my dream). I see the same people from work and also my family and friends, but in the dreams my life is so much better. It’s a place that I would love to live in.
I’m not sure what this means, but like I said this happens everyday.
Very interesting Jim, thanks for sharing your experience with us.
In a way, and I’m not sure if you’ve thought about this possibility, but it almost sounds like you are remembering parts of an alternate reality. Do you think it’s possible that in some parallel existence this is how your life would be?
That could be true. About 3 nights ago I dreamed that I was shot in the middle of my chest. No blood came out. But I woke up and felt the pain in my chest and the middle of my back where the bullet would have went through. It’s kind of weird. I still go to the same place every day.
Wow, very interesting Jim. This kind of leads us back to the discussion of whether it’s the pain that generated the dream of being shot, or if the dream itself caused you to feel the pain…
I have like a sort of vibe about people. I can tell almost immediately if theyre good. I think it has alot to do with the fact that i observe alot an pick up on small signs that others cant see?
Hi Vee and thanks for commenting.
That’s a very useful gift you have there and can really keep you out of trouble if you pay close attention to what your senses are telling you. Do you feel that you are sensing a persons aura or is it more reading their body language?
Well for me since I was a kid i’d have the same images dreamed and definetly as I got older I kept studying what was going at first I thought something was good was going to happen but no sometime it was significantly bad. What I then really notice was that when I had deja vu something really good could happen or something really bad. After that I immediately stayed on my toes and so I notice I might have some today and then tomorrow n then again 3 days later but what I notice after that was once the waved had stop it was then that something significant so I still could not fully avoid the significant event.
I was working on a project involving a set of numbers for the lottery I worked out that this set of 3 numbers would be valid in the project at a certain date the night before that date I had a terrible terrible itch on my right palm I could not get rid of this itch and I knew what it meant and the next day I won some money I believe it is true if your right hand itches you will be either very lucky or you have very good intuition
