Go with your gut feeling

A premonition, psychic gift, intuition ― call it what you will ― but those who have experienced the totally-engrossing feeling that something bad is lurking nearby or that danger is imminent will tell you that the sixth sense is a very real attribute. Science has yet to uncover concrete evidence that the ability to know when someone means to do harm to you, or a loved one perishes when they’re far away from you, or that tragedy could strike if you take one step more is a verifiable trait, that’s true. But when your stomach starts sinking and you feel an overwhelming sense of dread for no apparent reason right before finding out how close you were to calamity, you’ll think twice about writing off psychic abilities that humans sometimes have.
