A Cambridge scientist believes we have only seen the beginning of animals’ telepathic powers
- Ability of animals to seemingly anticipate disasters is ignored by Western scientists
- But could monitoring their behavior help to save lives?
One of my former neighbours in my home town of Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, was a widow whose son was a sailor in the merchant navy.
He did not like to tell his mother when he would be coming home on leave because he was afraid she would worry if he was delayed on the way. But his mother always knew anyway — thanks to the family cat.
This pet was very attached to this young man and, an hour or two before he arrived, it sat on the front door mat and began miaowing loudly as if equipped with some sixth sense which told it that he was on the way.
The cat was never wrong and this early-warning system gave our neighbour time to get her son’s room ready and prepare him a meal in the certainty that he would turn up soon afterwards.
This is just one of many examples of animals displaying the apparently psychic tendencies more normally associated with some of their human counterparts.
Many cats seem to know, for example, when they are going to the vet’s — hiding away in the hope that their owners might get bored of looking for them and give up on the idea.
More dramatically, some animals seem to sense when their owners have had accidents or have died in distant places — as documented on my database of more than 5,000 case histories involving psychic phenomena in animals.
This includes 177 cases of dogs apparently responding to the death or suffering of their absent masters or mistresses, mostly by howling, whining or whimpering, and 62 accounts of cats showing similar signs of distress.
Conversely, in 32 instances people knew when their pet had died or was in dire need, even when they were many miles away at the time.
As we will see, these paranormal powers are of potentially huge value to human beings in the prediction of natural disasters, such as earthquakes and tsunamis.
As it is time to put away the beach gear and hit the books, laptops and study groups, you may discover occasional feelings of intuition washing over you in the hallowed halls of learning. While it is important to pay attention to lectures and presentations made by your teachers, you should not abandon your connection to feelings as they form in your alternative consciousness.
Sometimes you might feel hopeful and misinterpret that hope for a true psychic feeling. Hoping that cute guy in your class will talk to you is not the same as a hunch that one day you two will be lovers. Telling the difference in an academic environment is often a little tougher.
The academy’s emphasis on rational thought demands that you subordinate your feelings to facts. It will only anger your teachers if you point out that great leaders and thinkers throughout history only made their advances by ignoring conventional wisdom.
Below are four instances where your feelings in and around campus may be an actual psychic sense foretelling what is about to make itself known.
1. The Wrong Book
In the library or the bookstore, as you look for what you need for a research project, you unconsciously walk down an aisle, pick up a random book and begin perusing it. Before you set it down something will catch your notice. Chances are that you will forget that little tidbit before you walk away and resume your intellectual drudgery. But if you do not forget the little snippet that you gleaned from the wrong book that just happened to be there, you may actually have a big clue as to how the future will unfold.
A name might have been calling to you from that book; this is the name of someone you need to give a second consideration to in the weeks ahead. You could see the name of a state or country and meet a possible soulmate from this place a day or two later. The wealth of information available on campus delivers many opportunities for your natural psychic energy to find clues in random places.
2. The Wrong Classroom
Imagine the flurry of activity if you wake up late and rush to get to class only to find you are in the wrong classroom. Perhaps you are in your Monday classroom for a Tuesday session or have gone to the wrong door down the hall. Whatever the mishap, the chaos of the moment may take you out of the real psychic reason that you are there.
Did the energy of a soulmate pull you to this place? Will you find out years from now that the one you noticed sitting in the classroom was the man of your dreams? Will a rival for your lover’s affections be in that mistaken classroom? And will she give you so much attitude that her fake friendly demeanor doesn’t fool you months later when you two formally meet?
The moment of chaos when you realize you are in unfamiliar surroundings is a portal to the center of psychic consciousness. The academic environment is rigidly structured specifically to prevent intuition from seizing control, and yet the smallest crack in this complex structure lets in intense visions of what is to be.
3. The Unexpected Sentence
When your professor returns your report or term paper, look over those red marks. Did you add a sentence that doesn’t make sense? Did you add in facts that were incongruous with the subject of your essay? Your psychic sense already knows who or what is coming into your life.
At the crunch time moments of assignment deadlines, your sixth sense may communicate to you through your writing. It may all seem logical and in place when you compose it, but a neutral editor will only find it confusing. Singling out your random phrases that others do not understand is one way that schoolwork unleashes your pent-up psychic knowledge.
4. Breaking Roles Off Campus
In most schools, student and faculty member roles are rigidly or traditionally defined. Your teacher is simply your instructor. An administrator in the financial aid office is a person at a desk. Your mind tends to classify people by specific roles with limited expectations. Of course, those from whom we seek and establish intimacy are not confined to such rigid mental boxes.
Our image can be shattered, though, when a chance meeting off campus reveals a side of someone that we might never have imagined. Is a quiet classmate actually a popular bartender in the center of a cool nightclub’s action? What if that hunky older man at the gym turns around and is your philosophy professor? If you were online dating and saw a great match, would the profile be even more appealing if you realized it was a campus employee with whom you had had casual, non-flirtatious interactions?
When your conscious mind has confined people to limited roles and this mental construct has been challenged, a psychic moment will almost always occur. You will be able to envision exactly how this person could fit into your life and with an expanded consciousness you can actually manifest this vision if it appears attractive to you in the least.
Do you remember when you got butterflies in your stomach at just the thought of being near a particular person? You were suddenly breathless and your heartbeat thumped a lusty cadence of desire. Your communication was reduced to little snippets of stuttering and your vocabulary consisted of sappy, endearing expressions. In other words, chubby little Cupid shot his scarlet arrow straight into your heart.
Ah, but that was then and this is now, and you’re wondering if you should throw the arrow back at that fat little winged troublemaker. Those butterflies have turned your stomach sour; your breathlessness leaves you feeling suffocated; and now communication between you has escalated to shouting matches, insults and accusations. Has love run its course? You may need some help to sort it all out.
Will Couple’s Counseling Help?
Maybe. But all the counseling in the world isn’t going to save a doomed relationship. Some relationships are meant to fail as a means of furthering the soul on its human journey. Before you jump into a couple’s counseling program, you need to do some spiritual assessing first and try to discover who you are as an individual. You need to reconnect with your spiritual self and learn what your motivations and expectations are – individually and within a relationship.
Consulting a Psychic for Love & Relationship Advice
There are many reasons for consulting a psychic, but most often a psychic is asked about issues concerning relationships. Everyone wants to know essentially the same things: Where do I find love? How do I hold onto love? Should I stay in this relationship or should I go? Is my partner cheating? Is finding love that will last in the cards for me?
These are all good questions, but the answers are not simple though. Finding love that lasts a lifetime depends on many factors – some spiritual, some karmic and some based on free will. A love relationship is complex. If it has any intensity, it’s a sure bet there’s some kind of spiritual connection that brought it together; but whether or not it’s a lifelong relationship or one that was intended as a life lesson on the path of each individual’s journey is the question that has to be answered.
What Can a Psychic Tell Us That We Don’t Already Know?
Nothing. You both already know within your spiritual selves what the outcome is likely to be; after all, you wrote the script for your lives before you were born. But by the time your relationship has soured to the point where you’re considering throwing in the towel, chances are you’re too emotionally involved with your own egos and not listening to your own gut instincts (communication from your higher self) or to each other. A trained psychic is an objective third set of ears (and/or a verbal referee).
A psychic is an unbiased third party who is privy to spiritual information you may be blocking. Sorting out the reasons you came together in the first place, and evaluating the reasons Cupid’s arrow had a poison tip, requires more than a rehashing of the drama. It requires knowledge and direction from your higher source – a spiritual evaluation of both people involved. Consulting a psychic for an in-depth review of your spiritual life purpose is the first step in deciding whether or not to call it quits.
How Can a Psychic Determine Our Future?
No one can decide your future except you. You were born with the unalienable spiritual right of free will. But a psychic can tap into your life’s chart and/or channel your spiritual advisers to help you determine the likely effect certain actions may have on the life path you chose for yourself. You set up your life’s challenges before you were born, charted the potential losses and rewards, selected the people who would be instrumental in helping you achieve your spiritual goals, and penciled in intuitive road maps to help guide you. But when you incarnated on Earth, all that knowledge was hidden from you. Why? Because if you knew the outcome of every action, no lessons would be learned.
Wouldn’t Asking a Psychic to Spell It Out Harm Our Spiritual Growth?
No. Remember those little road maps? We all need reminders – gentle nudges of where we’re supposed to be going. Think of a psychic as a road map; just because your ultimate goal may be to reach a destination hundreds of miles away, getting a map or having someone give you directions doesn’t alter the experiences you’ll have along the way. Nor does it influence your reactions to those experiences. It simply tells you this is where you are, this is where you’re going. Remember, your goal is to reach your designated point “B” from your starting location of point “A.” If you get off onto point “C,” you’re not where you’re supposed to be, not having the experiences you were supposed to have. Hanging on to a relationship that’s no longer fulfilling can place a karmic debt on your spiritual growth – a debt you’ll have to pay sooner or later.
What If We Can’t Agree on Consulting a Psychic?
You don’t have to. Remember: You came into this life on your own and your journey is your own. Even though you may have a life partner, that partner is not a part of your soul. Your soul is yours; it answers to no one but itself. If your partner doesn’t want to seek help, whether it’s couple’s counseling or consulting with a psychic, it is irrelevant in the grand scheme of your spiritual growth. You can still consult a psychic and seek your own spiritual counsel. Knowing you’re headed down the right road can only enhance your journey.
