Sixth Sense

I am not talking about the movie but a psychological phenomenon.

People have a sixth sense that guides your daily decisions.

You don’t know you have it, as it’s based in your subconscious mind,

Where past experiences and mistakes record as clear visions,

However your conscious mind only registers these memories as part of a picture.

It guides you to turn a specific way when you have never been there before,

When meeting someone new, like my future husband, made me realize he was who I would marry. 

I haven’t seen God but he/she must exist as I’ve seen work that only a supreme being can do.

It helps you to contact a potential employer just the right time for a job interview.

For others, it may be getting a feeling of foreboding prior to a bad experience or

It’s knowing that your child is really sick without any clear symptoms.

It is why someone chooses a specific profession and they end up being really good in that job.

When a decision must be made, you somehow just know how to make it.

Our reactions are based on our modified memories and subliminal sounds.

Some call this a hunch, gut-reaction, while others call it intuition or instinct. 

I believe it is our sixth sense and one of our most important characteristics of humans,

It is what makes us choose the fork in the road less travelled.

Makes us second guess our decision or just know that it is the right decision.

Somehow knowing from the moment our feet hit the floor, it is a good day and things will be alright.
