I'm 22 years old and I have been having déjà vu from my dreams for as long as I can remember. It occurs on a weekly basis, if not daily. Its never be anything big or important, just little things, like a conversation with one of my friends or a doodle I see on someone's paper in class. The time between the dream and the déjà vu has been anywhere from 5+ years to 2 days before hand. I don't know if its any special ability or not, but it also isn't the only one I think I may have.
Again, as long as I can remember I have always been able to read someone's personality and have a sense of whether they are a good person or not within minutes of meeting them.
Also, it has been pointed out to me many times by many different people my strong connection with animals. My family has always found it odd and amusing how I could go up to a feral cat and pick it up and love on it like it was a big fat house cat, or the first time meeting my late stepfather's guard dog, who would try to attack anyone that came near him, I was able to get him to lay on his back and rub his belly within 5 minutes.
About 5 years ago I started seeing shadow people, I don't know if that's due to any ability or if they just like to show up around me.
Also, I have always known when something bad was going to happen to someone I care about, my mom and great grandma have always been able to as well.
When I was about 5 years old I was staying at my great grandma's house until my mom could pick me up when she got off of work. I just randomly started crying and my great grandma asked me what was wrong, I told her that my mom had just been in a car accident and 5 minutes after I told her what was wrong my mom called and said she was going to be late because someone had ran a red light and hit her in an intersection.
Fast forward 6 years, My mom was going to AA meetings to support a friend of hers and she generally took me along to keep an eye on me and make sure I did my homework. One night I continually begged her not to go to the meeting, and when she asked me why I told her that there was going to be a very bad man there, but of course she didn't listen to me. She ended up in a relationship with the bad man. He was a drug addict and was physically and mentally abusive to both of us and threatened to kill my mother and I on more than one occasion and went so far as to hire someone to kill us both. Fortunately for me and my mom, the guy the bad man paid to kill us ended up protecting us from the bad man. There have been quite a few more instances where I knew something bad was going to happen, but I couldn't quite pin point what.
I think I may have some abilities but I'm not really sure, so I'm wondering what other people's, who have more knowledge of the subject, think of my prospective abilities, what they are, and if I have them, how to develop them.
