Goosebumps Are Serious Red Flag

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Listen to your goosebumps, they’re trying to tell you something.

Psychiatrist Dr. Judith Orloff says those goosebumps you get when you have a gut feeling about something are a side effect of intuition.

Orloff, who’s had premonitions about deaths, illnesses, and earthquakes all her life, says everyone has intuition and should follow it.

For example, if your gut tells you not to get on an airplane, don’t. It could save your life.

If you think deep down that your lover is cheating on you, they probably are. Sandra Bullock may have felt this about Jesse James.

Intuition doesn’t develop overnight – it must be constantly worked on. Orloff once had a feeling that her client was having a passionate affair with a man named Sam, but Sam was really the woman’s dog.

She explains, “It’s a learning process. You won’t always get it right.”

Orloff talks intuition in her new book, Second Sight (Three Rivers Press).
