MessageToEagle.com – Have you ever had the feeling you just know what is going to happen?
Many people have experienced so called “pre-feelings” and ability to anticipate the near future. A new study shows that we could be able to foretell the future. If some of us have this capability, we are most likely unaware of it, researchers concluded.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if our bodies prepared us for future events that could be very important to us, even if there’s no clue about what those events will be?
But who can be a clairvoyant and who cannot?
Researchers already know that our subconscious minds sometimes know more than our conscious minds. Physiological measures of subconscious arousal, for instance, tend to show up before conscious awareness that a deck of cards is stacked against us.
Scientists at the Northwestern University analyzed the results of 26 studies published between 1978 and 2010 and concluded that presentiment without any external clues may, in fact, exist.
What has not been clear is whether humans have the ability to predict future important events even without any clues as to what might happen.
A person playing a video game at work while wearing headphones, for example, can’t hear when his or her boss is coming around the corner.
“Our analysis suggests that if you were tuned into your body, you might be able to detect these anticipatory changes between two and 10 seconds beforehand and close your video game, Julia Mossbridge research associate in the Visual Perception, Cognition and Neuroscience Laboratory at Northwestern said.
“You might even have a chance to open that spreadsheet you were supposed to be working on. And if you were lucky, you could do all this before your boss entered the room.”
This phenomenon is sometimes called “presentiment,” as in “sensing the future,” but Mossbridge said she and other researchers are not sure whether people are really sensing the future.
“I like to call the phenomenon ‘anomalous anticipatory activity,’” she said. “The phenomenon is anomalous, some scientists argue, because we can’t explain it using present-day understanding about how biology works; though explanations related to recent quantum biological findings could potentially make sense.
It’s anticipatory because it seems to predict future physiological changes in response to an important event without any known clues, and it’s an activity because it consists of changes in the cardiopulmonary, skin and nervous systems.”
So the chances are that you could be a clairvoyant and not even know it…
