My Aunt gets a gut instinct that tells her to get off the highway if she drives on it. She hasn't used it now for about ten years. Only back roads for
Should we all do the same?
Boncho, You are still my favorite - but.... maybe her gut instinct to stay off the highway is the reason she is still alive. I'm being serious here.
Just last week, I had the gut instinct to get away from a semi while on the freeway. 10 min later I find out the freeway is completely closed. I
checked the traffic cams (I was trying to tell my client if he was close to the accident or not) - and sure enough, the exact semi I had a bad feeling
about crushed a car driving next to it, less than a minute after I had the urge to drive faster. I'm not saying all of us should avoid the highway...
but sometimes our gut tells us something. Another example.... I had nightmares every single night all night long for 6 years

husband, the nightmares stopped. I'm 28. Would something have happened? I don't know... but I can't deny my sub-conscience. I didn't divorce him
BECAUSE of the nightmares - but it sure was a hell of a coincidence.
I've had numerous occasions like this - and when my gut feeling wasn't headed.. bad things happened. I told my sister not to go to work one day
because I didn't have a good feeling. I was honestly sick to my stomach and nearly vomiting. She left and got in a car accident that almost killed
So.. my point is, gut feelings are part of who we are, and a huge part of why we survive.
