Supernatural Tendencies

June 01, 2007

Well, now, that's an out-of-the-box title, isn't it?

Yesterday morning when I woke up, I realized that I had had a dream that featured the husband of the woman who owns the quilt shop in Woodland. Nothing untoward. Nothing particularly memorable. I guess the only reason it stuck with me was that - well, hell - I had a dream that featured the husband of the woman who owns the quilt shop in Woodland.

So what do I do? I happened to be in Woodland in the afternoon, so I stopped in at the quilt shop.

"How's your husband?"
"??? He was fine when I saw him a while ago..."
"I was just checking. I had a dream about him last night. Nothing weird. Except that I had a dream about him."
"!!! Oh! Well, as far as I know, he's alright."

So my question is this: Why did I feel the need to "check up" on the husband's well-being? Do I profess to have precognitive or psychically sensitive subconscious ability? (Uh, the answer to that one is NO, by the way.)

We all do it, I think. "I had a dream about you last night. Are you all right?" And of course, you take it seriously, do a quick mental inventory of what's going on in your life, your mind, your body, and then say, "Well, yes, I think so..." or "As a matter of fact, this or that has been happening lately."

So not only do you give credence to your own subconscious wanderings, but the person you tell about it doesn't look at you like you've grown a third head (or is that a third eye?), but actually acts as though your "feeling" deserves at least some quick consideration.

I don't know if I really would like to have that ability, either in my subconscious or conscious mind (kinda Medium or Ghost Whisperer, you know?). If something happens, I'll deal with it but I don't need to go gathering worry in my basket to have on hand Just In Case.
