Have you ever just "sensed" someone's presence and then you see them? Like, you might think about them briefly then you see them a short time later. For instance I thought about my mother today, sensed her and then saw her in a restaurant I was at. This happens quite frequently. What is this?

Yes. Or when someone is almost home, you sense it, and then they walk in the door a minute later even though it's not their regular time. Don't have an answer for you, but yeah.

In a similar vein, someone I haven't seen in quite a while will unexpectedly come to mind, and then soon after I will either see that person or hear from them. Or, unfortunately, I will receive word that they have passed on. Doesn't happen often, but when it does, definitely gives me pause for thought.

Yes. I had that happen not too long ago in the grocery store. Someone I hadn't thought of in years.

I thought I saw her in the grocery store, and looking closer I realized that it wasn't her, and in fact didn't really look all that much like her. Puzzled by why I thought it was her, I kept walking and wow. There she was, a couple aisles over. The woman I briefly believed I had seen a couple moments before.

Very odd.

That must have freaked you out for a minute or two!

For me, I will notice things that remind me of that person, their name will randomly pop into my head, or even see people that resemble the person. Sure enough I will find out that the person I have been thinking about either died, someone close to them has passed, or they are going through a major ordeal. So when I get "clues" about a certain person I know to connect with them ASAP!!

Yeah, me too, but I consider that more spiritual than just "ESP"- so do you think everyone has it or the ones that are more in tune with it are more aware of it happening? I would like to develop it a little more.

Seems like it happens to me when I think of someone I haven't seen in a long, long time and they call me shortly after. A month or two after my divorce I had been wondering about a man from my past (14 years earlier, and I hadn't heard from him since) and within a week or so I got a message on my machine that he had been in my home town on a business trip and he just tried looking me up in the phone book. Amazingly, I had just changed my name back to my maiden name and the phone books had just come out with my listing in my new (old) last name.

I am not sure why it happens. I don't really subscribe to organized religion, but am somewhat spiritual. I am pretty intuitive in certain situations but don''t know if that is just me paying attention or if its something else. Any ideas on how to develop it further?
