I have talked to many people, and they all feel that something bad is coming. We as humans do have a very strong intuitive side, and I was wondering what other people are experiencing, and thnking.

My wife and I, and a few of my co-workers feel that something is going to happen. It could be a natural disaster(hurricane, earth quake, volcanic, etc.), it could be manmade such as a chemical, biological, radiological, or it could be something all together different. What are you thoughts?

My thoughts are that a thread comes up like this every couple of weeks. And then something happens, like a snowstorm or a hurricane. And then the OP comes back and says 'See, I told you something was going to happen'. And then everyone says, 'you were right, something DID happen'. And then the Op is treated like a God amongst men, a prophet coming to us in a time of confusion. Are you ready to take that responsibility???

The last time I had a feeling...more like a looming sense of dread that lasted weeks...was when that tsunami hit us. I absolutely knew something was gonna happen! I told my girlfriend many times that this was not gonna be a normal holiday season. Before that it was september 11 2001, weeks before, I kept seeing the number 911 whenever I looked at the time. Not just somethimes but every freaking time! yet again I told my girlfriend and some friends that something crappy was gonna go down on sept 11!

Well to tell you the truth I've been having some similar vibes...

I definetely not a prophet! I work in the Social Services field, and I talk to alot of people, and most of them feel that something bad or good may happen a few years from now, but no one can put there finger on it. I leave a copy of "lost cities and civilizations of Asia" on my desk, and it is a great ice breaker. I hear alot of stories, and some are "whoa, OK?????", and some are very engaging and make you think, but, there appears to be, most of the time, "a feeling that something, or some event is going to happen. Be it a year or 10 - 20 years down the road.

Thank you, for replying!!!!!!
Have you ever thought about keeping a journal. Basically, writting down when you a gut feeling and what you think is causing it/or a dream. Alot of times it may give us some clarity or insight into a situation or feeling. My wife got me started on it and it does work!

Me too.

It's like being strung out on heroin. I've never done it, but I've seen the movie Trainspotting, or at least a couple of scenes. The point is, we are all going to die soon. Armegeddon. I'm think vernal equinox time-frame.

Change is coming. Don't fear it - learn to absorb it, welcome it. Open yourself to it.

Besides, what can you really do about it? Que sera sera....what will be, will be.

At best, we should all be prepared for the things that are likely to occur. Have a basic survival kit prepared in your home and in your car. Store some water, medicines, clothes, blankets, etc. (you can easily find lists of suggested supplies that one might maintain). Because, my friend, snowstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods and all manner of disasters -- natural and man-made -- are possible.

As far as "sensing that something is going to happen".....well, yes. But then, I've got an anxiety disorder and I always feel that something is going to happen. Remember Y2K? I'm still using up stuff that I had stored for that particular "disaster". At least I now have plenty of camping equipment.

I feel you man, seriously. People have become so docile and dead to the fact that they want to live for today. Thats okay, but the sad thing as they feel they are doomed anyway, hence their behaviour! Thanks for the post.

I am prepared as well. Your reply reminded me of a discussion that I had with a DI when I went through survival training in the military:" Be prepared, and be prepared for the people who are not prepared." Most people I know of are not prepared, even people who are in a hurricane or tornado area.

"Always Be Prepared", the Boy Scout Motto is certainly the way to go: when dealing with anxious concerns about natural or man-made disasters or, for that matter, life in general.

Of course, it isn't easy to be prepared for all the different contingencies that can happen. At best, it's simply important -- and prudent -- to be prepared for the things that you can actually envision or affect as a likely eventuality.

Right now, speaking as an "anxious" individual, what I feel as something that is impending is an economic collapse or, at the least, crisis. In preparation, I do maintain a supply of basic food items (left over MRE's from my Y2K period certainly helps) and a bit of cash. If there is some sort of an economic collapse, at least I will be able to get by for a little while while I wait for the dust to settle.

Funny, I was just thinking about how coping with a natural disaster would actually be easier than trying to deal with a man-made one: an economic collapse such as the bank failures and depression of the twenties seem to be more daunting than coping with the aftermath of an earthquake or storm.
At least I can understand a natural disaster.

The shoe is going to drop again?

Well, i have had major headaches, and my sons dog is uncontrollable, but besides that, i'm ok and i feel that we have yet to see many things happen, that are going to knock our socks off.
Since 2000 i have had that nagging feeling about something terrible happening in my gut.
I am not going to dwell on this much because there is nothing we ARE going to do. The Apathy has brought us this far, its too late now.
I blame the population more than i blame the government.
Voting? Will it count? Will it matter? I think not. We have made wrong choices, we have allowed, and continue to allow much of what is currently wrong with our nation to continue, so i guess we deserve it.

Now its time to take our lumps.

As far as natural disasters? Mother Earth is a living planet with many changes past and present. Its a cycle that has been documented for thousands and millions of years. We do have to expect that nature will wipe us out one day, or change our lives as we know it. I can deal with that.

Its the man-made # that we could have maybe had a hand in changing and we didnt- and to this day wont. :shk:

SolPower said it. I would add that this anxiety in people is because of fear. They fear that something awful is going to happen because fear is being fed to us from every direction. Fear terrorists, fear your government, fear diseases, fear climate change, fear this, fear that and fear fear itself!

Do not be afraid. What ever happens, fear doesn't make it any better.

Ya there are a lot of people that can feel doom in the air, I myself felt it creeping into my life around six years ago. Recently however I discovered that when I took the blinders off and really took a look around not only could I feel it coming but I could see it coming. The boys in charge for all these years right now have set the agenda for doom.

I've had that feeling lately myself. I've had it a few times before something bad happened in my personal life (deaths/illness in familly, unexpected financial stress, and bad news at work), and really remember feeling a real sense of doom before 9/11, the 06 Tsunami, and Katrina. I'm no psychic or prophet. I think that our subconcious picks up little things that we don't consciously notice and that feeling is those bits of info coming together. What concerns me is i've had this conversation with several people here lately.

I think economic concerns are starting to way heavily on lots of people leading to this feeling amongst many. I've been following the turmoil in finance since April or so of last year. It's only recently really hit mainstreet. Most people in the town i work (a mid-sized, millitary town in the South), are most concerned about there loved ones of at war, and the economy.

I dunno I've had a general feeling of "something wicked this way comes" for about a month now. Others are having it too. More importantly it's being discussed amongst friends and co-workers in person quite a bit where I'm at.

I've been feeling a sense of urgency that I need to get prepared (and concerned that I'm not). In the last 6 months I've relocated from the hurricane zone of Florida to the earthquake zone of San Francisco. It's so expensive to live here and I depleted most of my extra funds in the moving process. So now I'm concerned that it's going to take a lot more time for me to put together my survival kit.

Once I had a sense of looming doom and pain and suffering, and it haunted me for a good day. Then I realized I was just getting Diarrhea.

When I lived in the Pacific Northwest I was always anxious about earthquakes. I would tense up going across bridges and through tunnels. I would be aware of what part of town I was in and if I was in a fill zone subject to greater upheaval. Then I moved to New England where i have already experienced 3 earthquakes since 2001. It really sucks that I might get injuried or killed by a falling tree, bird flu, a mega tsunami, etc. etc. It sucks getting old and perhaps closer to getting struck down at any minute. The Buddhists say that life is suffering and I believe all this fear and anxiety is just that, part of life. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger - might as well enjoy and try to make things work for the best.
