Earthquakes may be a common occurrence in many parts of the world, but not here in Southern Ontario. So when one struck last summer, we were all taken by surprise… and to my even greater surprise, I discovered that I am one of many “earth quake sensitives”. Here is the note I wrote to the Global Psychics team about what I experienced, and Lisa’s response. I’ll be interested in hearing if any of you have experienced some weird physical symptoms just prior to an earthquake.
A bit of panic in this part of the world because of a small earthquake that hit. north east of here.. I didn’t feel much of the trembling, didn’t seem to affect this area much, but I noticed this morning that my vision was blurry… I just got new glasses, so I thought it was just that I needed to adjust to them, but I am wondering if this was a physical reaction to the earth moving… anyone have any experience or knowledge on this one?
It’s interesting that you bring this up, because I too experienced something “odd.” The earthquake hit at 1:45 pm – about 15 minutes prior I started to get a darn headache again, so I went and laid down on the couch here to try and get rid of it. The tremors were felt here, but obviously not as drastic as in Toronto or Ottawa for example. The house vibrated slightly, and my windows started to rattle. Normally I pay no attention to the shaking of the house and rattling of the windows because whenever the logging trucks drive by that’s what happens. But … there were no trucks yesterday lol – the #2 machine at the mill was shut down for 24 hours for maintenance so they halted the loads. Anyways, at 2pm – my headache was gone – completely gone. So for 30 minutes, between 1:30 and 2 pm, I was experiencing a headache – just prior to, during, and just after the earthquake. My head has been fine since then lol.
I don’t know why we would experience anything physical like headaches or blurred vision like that, but it would be interesting to perhaps research other places that have had medium to large earthquakes (ours was a 5.5 – a medium one – by no means small – especially not when you see buildings swaying lol) – to find out if other folks have in fact experienced strange physical “side effects.” If anything, it would just prove that we are all connected on this earth and are all connected TO the earth.
To follow up – I just had to do a little bit of research on this and we are definitely not alone – apparently this happens quite frequently. Here is a passage I found on one website about how a lot of people are “earthquake sensitive”:
Earthquake sensitive humans may experience physical, random or monthly type hormonal, emotional, and brain activity related responses to those energy field fluctuations. Headaches are among the most common responses. Nausea and dizziness can occur. Some people may experience abrupt, strong, and temporary or even somewhat longer lasting mood swings. High or low frequency tones may be heard in one ear or the other or in both ears at the same time. Short duration muscle jolts are common. Physical pain or some other type of sensation in a hand or foot and in extreme cases actual physical injury can occur. Dreams may be influenced by those energy field fluctuations. Especially sensitive people may begin hearing voices or seeing ghostly images. I believe that some people might begin seeing auras of different colors surrounding other people.”
If you wish to read the entire article it can be found here: http://www.freewebz.com/eq-forecasting/128.html I Googled “feeling headache before earthquake” as well as “earthquake sensitive humans” and was given countless websites and links that discuss this phenomenon. Very interesting! Check it out, Lisa
