It comes as “That Feeling” at the nape of your neck. It draws you back or it tugs at your mind in an ethereal way “turn around… now”. We’re not talking about walking home late at night at getting the feeling you’re being followed. That Sixth Sense can come anywhere and any time. Some people get it when playing the lottery or about to put on a big bet. That’s what happened to one South Carolina woman in early March. Leaving The Spinx Company in Greenville, she felt a sudden and overwhelming urge to turn around.
Sixth Sense Lottery Winner
Something told the unnamed winner to buy a lottery ticket, so she did. She purchased an Extra Play scratchcard with a top prize of $250,000 (around £177,500) from the store. She was quickly glad she did, because after scratching off the panels, it turned out she’d won the top prize. Questioned later, she was asked what she was going to do with the money. Immediate plans include improvements to the house. At the time of the draw, she would be drawn on nothing else but a family discussion would undoubtedly follow for the Sixth Sense lottery winner. The player opted to keep her identity secret and shield her family from further details.
This is not the first time a player has credited a sixth sense with a big win. We all get that feeling from time to time. We can explain scientifically when we feel we are being followed – heightened senses are part of fight or flight. But for the sense tugging at our mind to go somewhere to win a prize or to avoid a horrific accident, there is less evidence to support. There may yet be a scientific explanation for this sixth sense – where people are unable to articulate changes they perceive.
