Wow, I feel like I've seen this thread before but never really never read paid attention to it...
Now that I think about it, I know exactly what you're talking about. It used to happen a lot when I was kid, and it was almost as if the entire
pressure of the atmosphere around you just dropped. You get a slight that slight ringing in your ears and everything feels a little eerie (it's not
necessarily scary, just gets your attention).
When I was a kid this would happen when I thought I was completely alone, usually in my house, and it usually happened right before my parents walked
in the door or my dog was nearing my room. It used to happen when I was with my babysitter as well, I would always tell her when my parents were about
to pull up in the driveway. It freaked her out at first, but we made a game out of it after I was almost always spot on. Sometimes, although rarely,
when I was alone and nothing would show up and I always thought to myself, "I bet that's Grandpa coming in to check on me" (of course he was dead). I
never really gave this feeling much thought...I just relished the thought that no one would ever be able to sneak up on me.
I've completely forgotten about those days...thanks for the nostalgic ride OP. I'm definitely a more logical and skeptical person now, but you never
forget what used to be real to you.
Edit: I completely blew over reading the opening post lol, sorry I just got excited remembering those days. But of course, I always catch when someone
is staring at me, or when I look into someones car while driving they almost always look back. I usually keep my phone on silent because I can "sense"
when I'm about to get a call(and because ringtones are annoying as hell)...everyone does those things if they choose to be aware of their
