You are watching a movie for the first time and before the actor/actress speaks a dialogue runs through your mind and then..that's exactly what the actor says...You actually dream the places you will visit in the near future...In a discussion with a group of friends you actually think of what a person is gonna say a few seconds before they actually say it! Now all this might have happened more than twice or thrice for it to be a coincidence...Do you believe you have psychic abilities? This has happened way too many times for me to think of it as a coincidence...I used to get the shivers initially when I actually visited places I had seen in my dreams before...Anybody out there with similar experiences? Share them!!

I often have the feeling that I have been somewhere or seen something before, even though in reality I havn't. It has happened to me quite a few times. I have an aunt that my family swears is psychic. She gets feelings about things before they happen and she is always right. It is really strange because it's always about something really unexpected.

I've had similar experiences too.You should ask your aunt if she does something to enable her powers or it comes naturally to her?

From what I have been told she is just going about her day and suddenly she will get a feeling about something.

I hope I am not too late.. but there is actually a term for this. It's called the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon - check out http://www.damninteresting.com/?p=417 for the details. ;-)

I believe in psychic abilities but also what you experience coud be eye lag...a phenomenon that was recently discovered which explains deja vu...according to its theory the eyes send the signal late to the brain..which the brain is confused and interprets it wrong....believe me I can experience deja vu when I want to I just force myself to believe what is true and what is not

Hmm could be..maybe this happens to a large number of people. But I can sure tell you what I see is definitely what I've dreamt. and its just not the place I see, but also with whom I go there, and we are sitting or standing and I can see the place from that angle. When I see the place I instantly know I've seen it before.

Hmm, interesting thought. But come to think of it, I didn't do anything to make mine "active" as such, it all started when I was about 14 or 15, I used to freak out a lot, when the places I visited were the places I had seen in my dream before!!Now I'm used to it...but I think all of us should explore thsi sixth sense in us..if it is possible to explore.

i totally believe in psychic abilities - i havent experienced any such thing myself but i do believe in people possess such ability. What about mind readers/future tellers/palmists ? they all make use of this 'inner power' :)

i actually have something odd going on myself. when i sleep, i normally do not dream. but, when i do dream, if it is of a specific person, something normally happens to that person. depending on what i dream, it could be god or bad. but i know that something is going to happen soon with whoever i am dreaming about. kinda freaks me out a bit. and i have seen some movies where i actually call out what is going to happen, and it happens, even though i have never seen the movie before. it's wierd.

I do believe in psychic abilities to an extent. I think it is all about learning how to channel it. I honestly do believe that the body does need to be able to receive energy, & also needs to be able to recognize energy. And another thing I do believe as well that everyone is capable of having a psychic ability. And that they do experience these types of things every day, & sometimes are not aware of this as well. I think it's all just a matter of one becoming more aware of it. I've seen it to many times where people will hear or even see things & then will become really afraid & begin to shut down afterwards. I've heard of people actually seeing visions & then panicking after seeing them. I think that's when some people begin to look at others like they are crazy. I've had times where I've had dreams where I end up seeing an event happening. And then.. When I end up waking up I totally forget about it for some reason.. And then I'll be doing something in the future, or even months later, & I have kind of like a deja vu, sorta. It's almost like I know deep down that I was dreaming about it, or had dreamed this.. And this only lasts a few seconds but then I find myself wondering afterwards about a few things. I don't know I've heard a lot of people saying how.. When you have moments like this that.. You are just lying or pulling a joke on them.. Or they'll tell you that you are consorting with the devil, but I have always actually found it to be quite interesting.. I feel these are so many new discoveries to be found when it comes to this topic.. I honestly love to learn more about psychic abilities & how they work.. Because like I had stated above I know we all have experienced these types of things.. Without being aware of it. I think we should learn to try to be more aware of it some-how! . .

I don't know that anyone is psychic or not, but I do believe that we can see things or think things that can prepare us or help us deal with things in our future better.

Yes, there are people that do have this ability. However, I do not think that I am one of them.
