Supernatural

Today seems like a good day to deal with the supernatural. So let's dive right in shall we? We've all seen Firestarter and Carrie, but I'm not going to talk about pyro powers or anything like that. More that sixth sense or what some people would call ESP. Another friend of mine calls it something else in my case. She says that most people have guardian spirits (as in 1 or 2). She says I have at least six. Now, I don't see ghosts and stuff doesn't move in my house or anything like that, so let's be clear. I'm not talking about haunting.

I'm talking about strange leaps in thought that help me out. A sudden urge to slow down on an empty highway and two miles later going past a speed trap. Or willing cars out of my way on the road and for no apparent reason the traffic pattern suddenly shifting to be the way I wanted it. We won't get into weather control (that's a story for another day.)

Some people would just say, it's a coincidence. I might agree if it didn't happen so often to me. I'll give you some examples. On a cross-Minnesota trip a friend was driving down the interstate. (MN as much of the Midwest doesn't have huge volumes of traffic like metropolitan areas. We were in cruise mode just chatting about a concert we'd gone to see in Minneapolis. We weren't passing other cars, cars weren't passing us. Suddenly, I was struck by the need to ask my friend to slow down. Why? He asked. I don't know, just do it.

Less than a few miles later we passed a state trooper gunning everyone with his radar. My friend was like, How did you know? I didn't. I just had the feeling we needed to slow down. That feeling has saved me so many times. I used to drive a Ford F-150 Lightning. It's basically a race car in a truck body. Driving 85-95 MPH became common for me in heavy traffic. Somehow, I always got a feeling of when I should slow down. Sure, I see traffic patterns and watch for people hitting their brakes at the same point in the road where there might be a patrol car lurking, but this is more than that. It happens on empty roads with no sign of anything coming up.

Other times, I just know things. This one is hard to describe, but I get strange inclinations that a friend might be in need of help. I'll call them and find out something has happened in their life. Or I'll think of a particular person several times in a 2-3 period that I only talk to sporadically and then they call me. Or I pick up the phone to call someone and they are on the line without it ever ringing (or me dialing). I know this happens to other people, but the frequency is so common with me that there has to be something else in play that isn't coincidence.

You are not crazy or imagining things at all. When I was 15 I was in my b/f's truck with him when I just got this strange feeling that he needed to slow down, so I told him to. When we topped the next hill on this dirt road there was this big car (like a Cadi or Town Car) stretched across the road. We did end up hitting her, but no one was injured. Had he not slowed down we would have rolled the truck, she would likely have been killed and it would have been tragic.

Just the other day I was driving to Syracuse. I know I am not supposed to be doing this but I was text messaging while I was driving about 75mph. Out of the clear blue I felt the urge to look up, it was strong, when I did there was a little car in front of me on the highway doing about 30mph with it's blinkers on. I jerked on my wheel so hard to miss them that I am surprised I didn't flip my SUV. Had a looked up a second later there would have been no avoiding them.
As far as guardian spirits being around you, you should really consider that this is a true thing. I believe and why I do is a long story, but they are there.

I think it's intuition. Everyone has it, only some people can tap into it and others can't.

There are no such things as coincidences, Munkey... and you already know that.
Yep. We ALL have a 6th sense.... stronger in some than others. O.o
