Do you ever feel like you have psychic abilities? Like you know something's happened before you've been informed? For example, while getting ready for work this morning I was thinking about a friend I'd lost touch with (and surprisingly isn't part of the social media world) about 4 years back and how I was going to reach out to another friend for her phone number later today as I'd hoped to reconnect here soon. By the time I got to work this morning, before I could reach out to the mutual acquaintance, my phone went off with a notification that the person I had wanted to reach out to has requested me follow her on Instagram. It was like my subconscience sent a message out into the world and it was recieved. This wasn't just a coincidence. These types of "freaky coincidences" happen to me at least every other week. For example, one of the most powerful intuitive experiences I've ever experienced was waking up one morning with a pit in my stomach and a tremendous feeling of loss, in which a few hours later I'd recieved a phone call that one of my best friends who lived 800 miles away had been killed in a car accident.
Some have tried justify these things as hieghtened awareness, but that just doesn't validate many of my situation. This morning my fellow web teammates suggested I look into collective unconscious and Carl Jung. My research led me to some very interesting revelations.
Apparently Carl Jung was a psychologist who founded the dynamics of the psyche which later influenced the development of the Myers Briggs personality test and indicators. Over the years I've found these Myers Briggs personality tests very insightful on my own personality and dynamic in the world. The Myers Briggs breaks you down into 16 personality types. I am an INFJ and have been true to that for quite a few years now. As there is for each personality type- there is a long description, which goes in depth, tells you in which sector your talents would be best used, relates you to influential and familiar people like leaders and social influencers, ect.
Now let's revert back to where this whole post started- over the excitement and looking for understanding over my intuition. The main site I used to research, webspace.ship.edu described my types as follows:
"INFJ (Introverted intuiting with feeling): These are serious students and workers who really want to contribute. They are private and easily hurt. They make good spouses, but tend to be physically reserved. People often think they are psychic. They make good therapists, general practitioners, ministers, and so on."
On that note, I'm going to find peace for the day in my inuition and come back to the thought next time one of one of these intuitions comes up. May you all have a serendipitous day!
