Sensing Eyecolor?

So I had a reading on a lady skeptic during which she was sitting with her back facing me. My strongest perception of her was that her eyes were unusually brown. I had this perception several times. Meanwhile her complexion was fair and her hair a reddish brown which made me logically convinced that it couldn't be true that her eyes are so brown as what I was seeing. After the reading as she turned around I saw that her eyes were in fact unusually brown. She said that she all the time gets comments on her eyes being brown, even that some people say that her eyes are so brown they look like "poop". She has strikingly beautiful brown eyes.

This is my first "perception" of eyecolor, and I do believe it came about because her eyecolor is so strikingly unusual. The perceptions that jump out at me as obvious are always when something is "unusual" about a person. Can I detect eyecolor even in cases when it is not unusual? Could detection of eyecolor become the basis for future tests of my paranormal claim of medical dowsing?


I may have seen her eyes before the reading even though I was trying to look away. I have no guarantee that I did not see her eyes before the reading. Still, had I subconsciously seen her eyes, I may have had it easier to believe what I was "perceiving". I also did not write this perception down, so there is no evidence that it was not ad hoc (ie. after the fact postdiction) and there is no evidence that I did not have prior awareness of her eyecolor, though if I did it was in the subconscious form since I was having a hard time believing in it logically, or consciously. But this is irrelevant. The question is, could I sense eyecolor in future cases?

Suitable for a test

  • There would no longer be a shortage of persons for a test. Whereas it is hard to find persons who are missing a kidney or a uterus, everybody can volunteer for a test of dowsing for eyecolor.

  • Medical ethical concerns are no longer a problem. Whereas who has a missing organ can be sensitive and private information, nobody is offended by having the color of their eyes known. What this means, is that I can finally involve members of the public in a study or a test! I would not involve non-skeptics into a test where I attempt to sense any personal medical information about them, but eyecolor is such a harmless topic that this is no longer an issue.

  • No ultrasound or other medical examination needed for verification anymore. It is as easy as looking a person in the eye after the reading and asking whether they have colored contact lenses in. And an actual test would employ a nurse, doctor, or optometrist to perform a simple confirmation that subjects are not wearing colored contacts.


If a person were to be able to look at a person's back and sense the color of their eyes, would that be a paranormal claim? Is the color of skin, hair, and eyes related so that one can be derived from the others making it possible to have a normal, and not paranormal, skill in this? One way to approach the answer is to involve control persons who are also guessing the color of eyes and to compare the claimant's answers with the answers made by the control persons. The claimant would have to do significantly better than control persons.

There are many persons such as this girl I read who had those unusually brown eyes where it would seem impossible to know their eyecolor just by looking at the person from behind. There might also be ways to conceal the person so that any suspected sources of information such as skincolor or hair color could be concealed.

If the person can wear a veil that conceals the color of their skin and hair then that would be ideal for a test. Question is if I can perceive medical information under those conditions, I will need to find out.


As always, I first begin with a study. I need to try this out, without claiming to actually be able to do it.

There are many colors...

But there is a large variety of eyecolor out there. Many shades of brown, of blue, of green, and combinations of each. How specific could my perceptions of eyecolor be? Could I for instance tell the difference between two similar shades of eyecolor so that I label them the right way according to the book? That is why for a test the subjects should have distinct eyecolors and not ones that would be a matter of personal interpretation.


This was my first perception of eyecolor that I can recall. I will from now on try to sense a person's eyecolor during future readings and also set up readings specifically only for sensing eyecolor. It is important to carefully document all cases. If I arrange for a study where I ask to guess a person's eyecolor then I will also ask persons if I may take a picture of them from behind so that you people at home can make a guess too.

Case 1 - Very dark brown. Accurate. I might have seen her eyes prior to the reading so this one doesn't count. Her eyecolor should be difficult to guess.
