Usually when I play, I see flashes of pictures of where the piano has been. I know it sounds crazy, but it happens. The piano has a lot of history. I am “bonded” with the piano.
I’ve played many pianos before, old pianos, brand new pianos, grand pianos, digital pianos, uprights. I’ve had two pianos that are older than 100 years old. They are the only two that I’ve played where I’ve had these flashing pictures.
Is my piano speaking to me? I don’t know. I tend to think of myself as being about as psychic as a rock, but then who knows? Other things have happened as well.
I tend to dream about earthquakes right before an earthquake occurs. I have done the same with train derailments. There was something recently that happened – a world event, and I can’t for the life of me remember what it was. I dreamed it, it happened. I told Cheryl. She doesn’t remember what it was either – just that I told her about it when it happened. Old age will do that to you.
I have lived in a few apartments in my time. I don’t do well emotionally in apartments. I feel like living in that close of proximity to others, I start to experience moods and emotions that aren’t mine. It is very noticeable – because I feel a very obvious emotion that has absolutely NO relation to me. I have that experience in large crowds, as well.
I am connected to my child. I know things about him intuitively. I am connected with Jim. The two of us frequently think the same thought at the same time.
And yet, on tests for psychic abilities – my scores are abysmal. I actually typically fall BELOW probability. Well below it. Maybe that is a gift in and of itself.
So am I psychic? I don’t think so. I think that there are people who are more sensitive than others. I know some rather gifted psychics, actually. They can hold an object and describe the events surrounding it accurately. They can come up with accurate pictures of dead people they have never met. They can run Zenner cards without missing a single one. I’m not that person.
Perhaps what happens is that, if we allow ourselves to tune in, all of us have intuitive flashes. Maybe I’m really extremely intuitive – I just don’t tune into it. Or maybe it is all just coincidence.
The thing about psychic ability is that I can actually see some potential explanations in science – specifically the zero-point field. It is complex quantum structure that underlies everything. Could it be that the energy from thoughts and events is manifest physically in the zero point field where we sometimes have the capability of tapping into it? I dunno. Anything is possible.
But I do know from my experience that there are things beyond what we understand. They don’t currently have scientific explanations, but that doesn’t mean the science behind them doesn’t exist. So for now, I’ll just keep noticing (and occasionally remembering) these intuitive flashes. And maybe I’ll take the time to actually sit down, listen and pay attention. Wouldn’t it be surprising to learn, after 43 years, that I have been guided all along and I just didn’t take the time to notice?
