THURSDAY, Feb. 17 (HealthDay News) -- Ever get a gut feeling something just isn't quite right, and make a decision accordingly? Science is beginning to suggest those instincts may have roots deep in the brain.
Research in young volunteers points to some kind of "sixth sense" -- a mechanism in the brain that picks up on subtle clues, then sends out subconscious signals of trouble ahead.

My husband and I were traveling on the highway with one of his beater trucks, which is some thing we often did and still do. We were carying a heavy load, which is some thing we often did, and do. This occasion was a little different though. I recall mentioning to my husband that I thought he should slow down, as if we had a blow out with the heavy load it could be bad. My husband did start to slow down. It was a matter of no more than several seconds from the time I had advised him to slow down that we did indeed get a blow out. Although the conditions allowed this to be a likely possibility, the timing would be quite ironic.
Then there is the psychic intimatcy shared by couples. My husband and I are extremely strong in this. At times I can be thinking about some thing so very far out that no one ever would possibly think of it, and my husband will speak and verbalize my thoughts. This happens often, and is a two way thing with us.
There is no doubt in my mind that there is some thing about we human beings that is not completly clear to us which manifests in times of stong emotion and sudden danger.

It is a known fact that animals do sense seasonal changes and upcoming natural diasasters, and being another animals it is possible for humans too to have this ability - if only our "logical" thinking dont come in the way!

Let me share a story to make my point...
A nurse was working SICU, and had a patient that was just not looking right. Vital signs were stable, labs were all normal, but she just had the feeling that something wasn't right. She worked nights, so she called the doc at home to see if he would order some tests or something. He said, "how are his vitals"? She said told him they were normal. He asked,"how are his labs"? She told him. He asked if the patient was uncomfortable or in pain. She said he was sleeping, but that there was just not something right. She told him she thought something was wrong with him, but she couldn't put her finger on it.
The doc said that if he wanted her thoughts on how his patients were doing, he'd call her...then grunted and hung up.
Doc got called back when that patient coded later that night. From that point on, every time he discovers that nurse has any of his patients, he asks her, "so, how do you think they're doing"?
That's gut instinct. And it's utilized, and encouraged to be utilized more and more in the scientific world.

It's quite possible for your nurse, or anyone else relying on "gut instinct" to have an experience like the one you cited. What we need to know is how many times have her gut instincts been right and how many times have they been wrong? Is the rate of accuracy for "gut instincts" statistically significant, or is it about what we'd expect from chance? That's the only way we can determine if this is a real phenomenon.

This is how the nurse would have been. She would have a feeling.
Clairsentience took a different form when I first started investigating. I now get physical feelings from spirit. Right from my very first investigation I was wondering why my hands and only my hands were going ice cold when spirit were near. This would correspond with emf meters and photography. My hands were like little radars. It just wasnt a cold breeze, it was just my hands feeling like I had just put them in an icebox and this happened in summer as well.My hands dont do that now but it has taken another form like the left side of my head feeling crawly . I find this most interesting.
I always know what is up with my dog as well. My dobe and I have a special bond. He just comes and stands in front of me and stares into my eyes. I can tell what it is he wants just by him standing there looking at me. There is nothing different he does but I can tell when he wants to do a pee, has a gut ache or wants me to play with him. No other cue's, just staring.
I embrace this now in my life and in my investigating.
I think a lot of people are clairsentient and just dont realise it.

.... or that they don't acknowledge, or that they don't want to acknowledge!
