The Wind

There is a Fall wind blowing outside of my house tonight. It's the kind of wind that usually ushers in a dramatic change. It's the kind of wind that will eventually rise to a crescendo. This is the 'prewind'. You can feel the tension building. It's the beginning of something. In each gust, brings with it a little cooler temperature. A different smell. The tide is changing. I know tomorrow, the air will be changed. There will not be tomorrow what there was today.
Somehow, today, I could feel a change. I don't know what it is. I don't know what it will bring. Whether it will be good or bad. Or just merely something indifferent. I just know that I feel something about to break.
"I listen to the wind
to the wind of my soul
Where I'll end up
Well I think only God really knows
I've sat upon the setting sun
But never, never, never, nerver
wanted water once
No never, never, never"
Cat Stevens ~ "The Wind"
I would hardly call myself psychic. And if I did, you would all call me crazy. I prefer to call myself perceptually gifted. However, there are times when I can pick up vibrations. Miniscule changes that no one else can detect. It's a feeling that resonates within my every tissue. I can feel things in the air, I can feel them wafting off of people. It's almost as if I can see straight through them. And I barely even have to think about it. It just comes to me. Like my next breath.
It sort of reminds me of sharks. They have small pores, that look like black dots on their bodies. They're called ampullae of Lorenzini. They are used to detect electro-magnetic fields - vibrations in the water - to detect dead and dying prey. Because of the ampullae of Lorenzini, they are able to sense, to pick up on these vibrations. They can't see what it is, but their bodies are built to pick up these vibrations. Granted, I'm not interested in finding prey. But I believe my body is built to pick up people vibrations. ( I told you back here that my favorite class was Oceanography in high school - super geek, that's me).
There are times when I can see something. Like a snapshot inside my head. Almost as if it looks as though it's been filmed on 8mm film. Then replayed inside my head. Sometimes it's as clear as a picture - sometimes it's like I'm looking through Swiss Cheese. Sometimes it's as if it's shown to me on purpose - other times on accident.
Whether I am just highly perceptive - or just down right nuts - I don't know. I just know that when these things come to me, I listen. The finality is in my gut. It feels like a brick. Once I feel that, I know to stop & wait. See what happens.
So, with this wind tonight, I feel a change. I have the feeling in my gut. I'm waiting for the input. Every sense is awakened & waiting......
You can call me crazy. But there are plenty that know all of this to be true.......

Strange as it sounds, my Raviolette is not kidding. She told me about this when we first started dating. Needless to say I was skeptical. But, regardless of skepticism, I have witnessed some of the "feelings" she has come absolutley true. Usually it only apply to people, character things. But in general she is pretty eerily precognizant about a lot of things. Strange, that I was the one who fell in love at first sight......

Don't try to frighten us with your sorceror's ways Lady Raviolette. Your sad devotion to that dying religion hasn't helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, nor has it given you clairvoyance enough to locate the rebel's hidden fort...*ach*...*choke*...

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

I believe you, I really do. I get vibes too, different ones, but I'm not as clued into it as you are.

I would never call you crazy. Not for that, anyway.

jen said...

hardly crazy. the world hums at all sorts of vibrations that most of us are unable to hear. you've got some of that, then you rock on, sister. the women i know who have a touch of the other make me exceedingly jealous...it's like you get to know something we all have access to, but most of us can't find.

Dear Ravioli:
True, it may 'seem' that it is primarily 'character' things that I get vibes about - and I do get many of them instantly. But it's only because I don't 'speak' of the others very often, that it seems that way.

The quote "I find your lack of faith disturbing" was for Jon ;)
