I have the ability to see auras around people and do so all of the time. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11581280
I don't see auras but I perceive their 'energy' if they are either at one extreme or another.
I can also read other people's emotions fairly well if they are strong and can tell someone who is genuinely distressed or depressed from someone who is histrionic or just a drama queen.
I can spot liars quite well and can 'feel' the presence of people who are trouble.
Every time I ever ignored my intuition I regretted it. Each time I worried about being too judgemental but decided it was better to be safe than sorry, my instinct was proved right.
It's beyond simple 'cold reading' at any rate.
Around 1999-2000 my room-mate wanted to move to New York city and was trying to convince me to go. I had this flash of tall flaming buildings being bombed with missiles and balked at the idea. I always liked NYC but had zero desire to move there at that point, was scared to.
Even odder, in August of 2001 there was an airshow going on this one weekend not far from where I lived and one plane flew particularly low over the building I was in.
Hearing that plane flying low overhead freaked the hell out of me, even though the air show went on every year and normally it didn't bother me at all.
Found out why September 2001...
