Dogs are magical, mystical creatures. Somewhere between a unicorn and the fluffy white dragon in Never Ending Story. And yes, occasionally dogs do non-magical things like drag their rumps on the carpet or chew up the mail. But are dogs metaphysical? Do dogs simply know things that would surprise you; and if so, how do they know these things? It could be that dogs have supernatural powers. Here are 5 things that prove dogs are psychic.
Dogs Know Things That Are Going To Happen Before They Happen
Dogs are keenly in tune with their surroundings. Research indicates that a dogs hearing is so discerning, they can hear minuscule movements from underground surfaces; and sense seismic shifts through their paws.
While some dogs can be trained to sense seizures, others simply know and whine, paw at, or even nip their human prior to an impending seizure. While theories in the medical community exist, confirming through blind studies is hard to do and thus, no one knows the ‘why’ with any certainty.
Dogs can sense a storm before they occur. This is mostly due to their ability to ‘feel’ the electromagnetic forces associated with storms. Scientists believe this is due to a dog’s olfactory senses being that of much greater sensitivity when compared to humans, and that dogs smell the electrical current in the air.
When sick, your body’s chemistry changes due to an overactive immune system, particularly with a debilitating illness; and with dogs spectacular sense of smell, they know when humans are sick. Consider seeing a doctor if your dog is focused on sniffing one particular part of your body.
Your dog knows when you are taking them to the vet or taking them to the dog park. Researchers believe this is due to a dog’s careful attention to following their human’s gaze and reading their body language.
Psychic or not, there’s a divide in the dog-lover and scientific communities. While dog-lovers insist that dogs just ‘know,’ scientists counter that what appears to be psychic knowledge is actually a dog’s enhanced application of the five senses. While humans primarily use immediate sensory feedback like visual and touch, dog’s rely more on their highly superior scent and hearing skills. But is that all there is to it? Maybe and maybe not.
Psi Trailing – What Is Going On Here
While the jury remains out if dogs are clairvoyant or have precognition or telepathic abilities there is one remaining piece of evidence that points to dogs being psychic and that is psi trailing. Psi trailing is a strong emotional connection between an animal and its’ human caretaker and tends to be associated with dogs (and cats) for their ability to track back to their lost loved one, even when traveling great distances through areas never ventured prior. There are numerous documented cases of psi trailing.
What humans refer to as psychic abilities are not the oddities often portrayed on television or in movies, but more so are a natural and biological process with some humans naturally left with or acquiring more attuned skills than others. The same is true of animals. Like humans, dogs possess the same five senses however dog’s have adapted through a different physiology, and thus resulted in similar yet arguably more finely honed sensory pathways.
Mattie’s Psi Trailing Adventure
We have had psi trailing encounters with Mattie, one reported by his vet. During a five-day emergency hospital stay, Mattie’s vet remarked that Mattie knew when we were coming to see him, even though we visited at all hours of the day and night, no routine schedule. Two minutes prior to our arrival Mattie would bolt upright in his kennel, press his nose through the gate, tilt his head to the right and focus intently on the door. Nothing would deter him from his stance and staring. The vet techs timed it and confirmed the two-minute mark – without fail this happened. How did Mattie know that we were coming? We have no idea, he was located deep inside the ICU wing of the hospital where there were no windows.
I choose to believe Mattie is psychic, and that we are connected in a way that is both indescribable and uniquely special and transcends time and space. Is your dog psychic? Do you have a special psi trailing experience you’d like to share? We’d love to hear about it. Just leave your story in the comments below. And as Mattie would say:
