Deja Vu perhaps?

Did you experience having a dream and then days after it happens to you in your real life? There are times that I have dreams and like days after, that certain scene would become so familiar that I don't know why and then I would realize that I have dreamed about it. I went to a tarot card reader and he said that I have a gift of foresight. LOL. I wanted to believe him but I think Science could provide more answers than the mystics. Am I weird now?

No its kinda normal. Psychologist explained it in the field of psychiatry. Its kinda weird but people might encounter this once or twice in their lives.

I also experience dejavu when I was younger until my early 20's, but it seldom happens now. I was really amazed how clear a situation/incident in my dream that I actually thought it already took place some time ago.But i never give it so much importance :)

True. I may have put a little attention on it once I can feel that I have already dreamt about it.

I looked it up and managed to find moreless what I had read before. This is from Wikipedia, on Deja Vu. "Scientifically speaking, the most likely explanation of deja vu is not that it is an act of "precognition" or "prophecy," but rather that it is an anomaly of memory, giving the impression that an experience is being "recalled." " Unfortunately I don't really believe in psychics, so I think the statement above probably describes what deja vu really is. Then again, you can't be certain.

I have to agree that it's the more reasonable definition than the other one.

I cannot lay claim to clairvoyance as you describe. I can say that if I have a dream and remember it the next morning and what's more I can recall it days after, then that is usually a warning. All I have to do is keep my eyes and ears open and I will know when that dream comes true. I dreamed my house was robbed. That happened within a couple of months. I dreamed about numbers that I saw on a curb - like house numbers. I played those numbers in the lottery and won a nice sum of money. Those are two incidents that stand out in my mind. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, I pay attention. I don't think you are wierd at all. There are quite a few people born with the gift. You have the potential to do a lot of good. You must be careful not to burn yourself out. A friend of mine who had the gift said it was sometimes difficult to turn off some of the things she saw when they were going to have a negative impact on someone. Blessings to you.

I wish I am convinced that it's really a gift and not a minor problem to my brain or something. God bless to you too.

Hehe, yeah. I get that sometimes too, and I like it quite a lot :) It makes me feel powerful for some reason xD If you could control when it happened, that would be awesome, but I think I read somewhere a long time ago that you in fact don't have any dream like that, but that for a split second your mind does something to make you think that you have previously dreamt what just happened before. It's quite confusingthough, and I don't know if it's true.

I wish I could gain the strength also of having a control of my dream and having that power too. It would be an amazing experience./

It's a relief in a way but I hope we could find an answer to this one.

Deja vu is the feeling that someone has experienced the same situation previously. It is often accompanied by the strong feeling that one knows what is about to happen next. It is common among people with some mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and people with lesions in the temporal lobe or epilepsy but on average one in three healthy people will also experienced it, although quite often when under stress.

totallyundecided yes I have and it was a good dream only a little unsettling to relive the dream in reality but it was a life saving dream and the reality was also about what we did not do and how we were so happy we did not. the plane we were supposed to take collided with a larger pland and both crashed and bu rned no survivors. deja perhaps.

I sometimes have those moments as well. Strangely, some things I dream about aren't real, and some dreams happen in real life. For example, I would dream of chilly weather in my area (South Florida) with some rain, and I've continued to dream about it even though that event already happened. Is it because I'm paranormal, or because my brain perceives the dream as real, when in reality, I've been dreaming? Only science can tell. I don't think you're weird. I just think it's normal (or quasi-normal) to experience a feeling of deja-vu.

I have had this happen so many times. I felt like I was the only one or I was going crazy. I can't believe it happens to someone else. makes me feel much better about it as well.

I'm relieved to know that I am not alone in this one. That's why I never share this to my close friends or family because I am afraid they might think different.

Well, that is true i also experience that de javu something. Even my daughter, she also experience that. Not only places but a situation or a scene that is yet to happen in the future and when it happens i am shocked to recall that it has happened already in my dream. I think this kind of dreams tell us to prepare for something, only we are not keen enough to really decipher what this dream mean. I even dream of the same dream many times that i only realize that i have dream about it already while i am dreaming. Weird isn't it? I believe that when we know how to interpret dreams we can be prepared for what will happen in the future and this is based on my experience.
