Precognition Or Deja Vu?


I'm 23 right now, but ever since I was little, I've had dreams that eventually come true. I'll have a dream, just a normal dream, nothing out of the ordinary, and I'll forget about it. Then, maybe days, months, years later, the exact dream will come true. Every detail down to the place, the people I'm with, what we're doing and especially dialogue. The actual event will trigger my memory and I'll get this overwhelming feeling of "Wow, I dreamt this before!" Sometimes the event will hit me like a ton of bricks and other times it's a smaller feeling, just a reminder of my dream. Does this mean that I have precognition? Or am I just experiencing déjà vu?

I've always interpreted these events as what is supposed to come true...destiny, if you will. Is it correct to think of it this way? These events have usually been normal, everyday interactions. Talking with people at work, walking with my husband, writing something down, etc.

I remember one time, my husband and I (dating at the time) were walking outside, holding hands. We turned a corner and stepped up a few stairs and then I remembered the dream I had. It was exactly the same! And I also remember the color blue. He had on a blue shirt when it happened. I had to stop and take a breath because it was such a strong feeling.

My husband is the first person I've ever told about this because I was always afraid people would think I'm a freak. But now I'm just curious to see why and how this happens. I'd like to learn more about it. I'm welcome to any and all feedback!

You have the same experience as me. I had dreams like a few years ago, and when I see certain things, I remember the part of the dream which included the thing. This dream is blurry but I rememeber some details:

There was a building and a parking lot, there was fire and a fight going on. Then I just remember running away.

Then like this summer that had passed, I was in Colombia. While we were downtown, me and my family passed this building that reminded me of the dream. I forgot the dream like 2 years ago. There were other dreams too, like I was in a runaway subway train (the #7 train) and last year in december, I went with my mom to Queens Plaza (place in queens, new york) and while we passed this under-construction building, I remembered this dream...

Thanks for your advice! The other night I had a dream about the future and I realized in my dream that it was a premonition. It was the strangest thing. Very exciting though! 😊

witness7, lol, welcome to my life! Except never think you're a freak. I've had dreams about things in my life all my life and I love it! Sometimes you have to take the bad with the good, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. When I have deja vu I do have that feeling like I'm on the right course in life, but that's really a personal opinion... I agree with AnneV about starting a dream journal, I'm starting one as well! 😊 Good Luck, look forward to hearing more from you...

Our life is predestined however we also have choice. If we dream something and are conscious that it may be a premonition, we are free to take alternative actions. If you dream you're going to suffer some negative consequence, don't do it. I use my dreams for this all of the time. This isn't déjà vu, it's precognition. I think 99% of déjà vu's are forgotten dreams.

I continually stress for people to keep a dream journal. Better yet, do it in a format that you can query (in a database, if you're technically savvy - I personally use MS Access). This way no dream gets lost. I then can search for trends as well for bigger themes that I may be missing. You'll be delighted and amazed over the years of what you dream.

Thanks for sharing.
