15 Signs You Have an Active Sixth Sense
Have you ever experienced a weird feeling that something terrible is going to happen and something terrible happens, or have you seen something in your dreams and has it then played out in reality? Events like these are sure to freak anyone out. But you’ll be surprised to know that almost all of us possess a psychic sensitivity or ‘sixth sense’ that often warns us about impending danger.
Premonitions are fairly common. According to surveys conducted worldwide, almost one-third of people believe in extrasensory perception. So, if you think that you have an active sixth sense, you might be right. In fact, by acknowledging and exploring this part of you, there are chances that you’ll learn more about yourself.
Several species of animals use this ability to navigate across long distances. They can do this by aligning themselves with a magnetic field that gives them a sense of direction.
Though science doesn’t accept the concept of sixth sense completely, we can’t help but feel awed by it. When our premonitions come true, we are at a loss for words and it is hard to find any logical explanation for the incident other than the psychic realm. So, let’s explore this realm to find out how to identify the signs of a strong sixth sense and how to develop it so that you can use it to your advantage. Check out these 15 signs that indicate that you might have an active sixth sense.
1) Desire to move away from negativity
If you have a strong sixth sense, you’re most likely an empathetic person too. You feel the pain and emotions of people around you very strongly. Because of this sensitivity, you feel drained around people who are over-dramatic or are extremely negative. You feel the need to distance yourself from negative thoughts and be alone for a while.
2) Recurrent and vivid dreams
Dreams are often a common symptom of an active sixth sense. It’s because of two reasons: one, when you’re asleep, your logical mind doesn’t get in the way of your intuition. Second, during your sleep, your levels of consciousness become more accessible and open. If you’re having frequent dreams about situations in your life, you can perceive them as intuitive insights.
3) A tingling sensation
You may feel a tingling sensation on your forehead between the eyebrows or the ‘third eye’ region. If you have a strong sixth sense, your chakras are likely to open up to pick up the energy signals leading to a weird sensation in the area.
4) Strong premonitions
When you have an active sixth sense, you’ll get a strong feeling that something is going to happen to the people around you. Maybe you’ll know if someone is going to have an accident before it happens or that a friend is pregnant before she even finds out.
5) You hear voices in your head
Hearing voices doesn’t necessarily have to mean that you’re mentally unsound. Our intuition often sounds like a voice inside the head in the form of advice or a warning.
6) You can decipher other people’s thoughts
Do you often pick up on other people’s thoughts or you end up saying the same thing your friend is thinking about? You may be surprised to know that you possess telepathic skills. This is one of the glaring signs of an active sixth sense.
7) You have a high score on Zener test
Psychologist Karl Zener created a set of cards to test extrasensory perception (ESP) back in 1930. Though the test has been criticised by many, it can measure strong clairvoyant skills. If you have a high score on this test, you definitely possess a strong sixth sense.
8) You can see beyond the visual cues
Do you sometimes get visions of events that may have occurred in the past or are about to occur in the future when you enter a new place? If yes, then your sixth sense is evidently strong.
Headaches can be due to several medical reasons. But, if you don’t think that your headache is a medical symptom, your heightened sixth sense might be the cause. Headaches are common among psychics due to the influx of energy.
10) The feeling of ‘déjà vu’’
Have you ever met someone new and felt that you’ve met them before? Have you been in a situation where you feel that the events have occurred in the same order before? The experience of déjà vu is weird and is definite proof of an active sixth sense.
11) You predict the future without meaning to
Sometimes, you randomly end up predicting future events accurately – sounds familiar? That’s another sign that your sixth sense is stronger than you think.
12) You sometimes feel unwell for no reason
You feel inexplicably unwell and nauseated. Your mind gets clouded, and you feel a terrible pain in your head. Later, you learn that something bad has happened to a loved one. This is one of the important signs of having a dynamic sixth sense.
13) You feel the energy around you
Sometimes, you feel a pressing need to call a friend and find out if he/she needs help. When you do, you find out they were about to call you for help. This means your mind is tuned in to the energies around you.
14) You feel warned by the energies around you
Sudden flashes of red light, a painful punch in the stomach or a simple red flag in your mind pops up when you feel there’s danger ahead or something is not quite right.
15) You can recognise people with bad intentions
It happens often. You meet an individual and you can sense that something about him/her doesn’t quite add up. That’s your sixth sense warning you to stay away from that person, and more often than not, it turns out right.
