Paranormal Phenomena/Time


Hello. Im not sure if this is your area of expertise but, does it mean something if the same time pops up. The number is 3:16 When I look at the clock, or listening to a song its been paying for 3:16. A digital clock says always happens. I try to test it and say...i bet its 3:16 and it it a ghost trying to tell me something of is it in my subconscious mind? Thank you :")

Hello Mo,

  Thank you for writing to me at All Experts with your question. The question does fall into the category of psychology/parapsychology, however I do not believe that there is anything paranormal about what is happening. Strange, yes - but there are a lot of strange things in this world that are in no way paranormal. The first thing to consider is that what you are experiencing is a case of coincidences that when put together seems uncanny. You may also have a built in sense of time and that nay make you aware of when the time of 3:16 is approaching. I rarely wear a watch, yet if I look at a clock once every three hours or so i can usually estimate the time with-in minutes of what it actually is. You may discover that you too are sensitive to time and have a built in clock... and in your case, a built in "alarm".

  Life can be full of weird coincidences and once a trend is noticed it is hard not to be weary of it. I have had people write saying that they see the same color everywhere they go, or meet people with the same name over and over again. Then just as strangely as it all started... it all ends. These all add up to being "just one of those things". Once a trend is noticed it is easy to classify it as being an omen or a warning or what have you. Honestly, I am certain that you look at the time more than twice a day - but it is the coincidence of seeing the 3:16 that has begun to occupy your mind. I am certain that you listen to a wide variety of music, but it was those few songs that were 3:16 that added to the "that's weird" factor further fueling your belief that there is something more than coincidence at work... and there is... psychology.

  It is not a ghost? No, and I do not feel that there is anything subconscious about this. On the contrary, it is because you are consciously aware of it that you feel that it is out of place. And it is. A series of coincidences can look beyond normal... but not paranormal.

  To see just how strange coincidence can be, take a look at this link

  Mo, I hope that this has helped shed some light on the events. If you feel that there is more information that you need feel free to write and let me know.

Take care,

Paranormal Phenomena
