You predict what your friends are thinking before a word is spoken. Or maybe you're certain that object in the sky is not a bird or a plane, but rather a UFO.
If this sounds familiar, you may want to clear your schedule this weekend.
The Conscious Life Expo is rolling into Los Angeles for a three-day exploration of new thought, new ideas and expanding consciousness, says its founder Robert Quicksilver.
With 175 exhibitors, 35 keynote speakers, 10 panel discussions and 92 lectures, there are many topics that will be taken on throughout the weekend, Quicksilver said.
"Think of it as a whole city where all the components of the city are there, including progressive thought, healing attributes, healing technology, a lot of authors, a lot of (psychic) readers," he says.
"There's so many different areas from UFOs to healings to a program on making money on the Internet. ... It's not only a health show, it's not only a baseball show, it's like everything inside this whole world of alternative consciousness."
Inside that world is numerologist Glynis McCants.
McCants has been studying numerology for more than 21 years. She has written "Glynis Has Your Number" (Hyperion, 2005), and "Love by the Numbers" (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2010).
"Numerology is a science of numbers. It's 2,500 years old," McCants says. "When you're born, you come to with a certain sound and that's what we call vibration."
Vibrations are the reason you have connections with certain people and why you may not get along with others, according to numerology.
An individual's name and birthday determines the six numbers that make up his or her numerology blueprint. Certain numbers have different personality traits and tendencies affiliated with them.
"If I have your numbers, I always say `You can run but you can't hide,"' says McCants. "I live, eat and breathe numbers."
McCants will be a keynote speaker at the Conscious Life Expo at 2 p.m. Saturday. She will be teaching basic numbers, doing live reads and looking at how numbers influence relationships.
McCants says anyone who wants to improve his or her life should attend her lecture as numerology is a daily tool you can use, she notes.
"I want people to apply this knowledge to their life and make it easier," McCants says. "It's going to be a really good workshop."
The expo lineup also includes Eric Pearl, who will hold a workshop at 4 p.m. Sunday.
Pearl practices and teaches reconnective healing. Pearl says it can bring instantaneous healing to a person, though he is unsure exactly as to how or why.
He says he has witnessed everything from cancers vanishing to people gaining the sudden ability to walk or talk.
"Here I am waving my hands in the air looking like an idiot and people are having healings and I don't understand how it works," Pearl says. "Yet somehow or other I'm able to share this gift and teach this capacity, teach people how to access this capacity, this ability through themselves and through others."
At the expo, Pearl will not only teach reconnective healing but will also discuss the history and philosophy of the theory and doing at least one live healing demonstration.
A lifetime achievement award also will be given to Lynn Andrews, a New York Times best-selling author who is also a healer.
With various topics and speakers, Quicksilver believes the event will attract a wide range of people who are interested in alternative lifestyles and want to meet like-minded individuals.
"We live in these communities where someone might be progressive, someone might not and you don't really talk to your neighbors so much. But at the expo, all the people there are like-minded," Quicksilver says.
"It's a place where the whole community of alternative individuals with alternative ideas all come together for a three-day powwow."
