This lends support to my own personal hypothesis about "intuition".
There is a way that word is used by some scientific minds, to refer to a sort anticipation of events based upon past experience- like what you'd
expect a ball to do when you see it on a ramp that looks to be going downwards.
This particular interpretation is often pointed to as why one should not trust intution. ("the solution is counter-intuitional...")
My experience of intuition is something totally different, and often gives me messages from my body that counter those expectations based upon
experience. It is more subtle.. like the negative coming from my body in response to the image of the ball rolling downwards.
I think this is why methods of practice such as meditation aid to increase ones awareness of their intuition- simply because you learn to turn all
attention inwards, and to be completely receptive to the most subtle jolts of electricity, or tiniest squirts of hormones, or change in heart rate,
which tell you- something is about to happen.
In working with horses, we learn how important it is to pay attention to that. For one, the subconscious can pick up the slightest indicators of
internal states of other beings and warn of danger you cannot pick up with senses yet. (if you get a feeling you should not get on that horse right
now, despite it seeming fine, DON'T).
This works good for sensing con men and individuals with non-evident emotional problems.
But the even stranger signals come in sometimes concerning events that there is just no way in heck anyone else could know beforehand! Like that two
miles down the road, a bird will fly out of bush in front of you, causing your horse to bolt into a giant truck. You get signals, but there is just no
way you can decode those correctly because the event has no basis to start from yet. But you learn through repeated experience that it is telling you
SOMETHING and you can only pay attention to the correlations when it comes up to figure out what you should or shouldn't do. (if it flashes red when
you turn one direction, but not the other, for example).
This is what I usually consider when I see the threads come up about premonitions and predictions. I don't feel like making fun of the people who come
up with another megaquake for next week- they may be just trying to make sense out of their intuitional messages and misreading them a bit.
One of the most common mistakes is misinterpretting the messages to be for humanity- when they are really very personal and for you directly. They
might be telling you about YOUR world will be shaken (you might lose your job, you might find out the Easter Bunny doesn't really exist, your mate
will announce they want to live Milwaukee...)
