      That could very well be the cause of Deja Vu.

      How? Ummmm... Put the lime in the coconut and shake em both up?

      Not to discourage you, but in my experiences its either a skill people are born with or have come out once or twice in their lives.

      Im not saying its impossible to learn, but Ive never heard of anyone working on it, much less being successful.
      Send me a PM with a way to contact you, im more than willing to talk and learn.

      Like Racoon said, it can happen, but it's likely something out of our control. I don't think you can will to have a dream about the future, these kind of dreams just come to you.

      Yeah. I have had a few of those "future foretelling" dreams before. In fact, last night, I had a dream a printer was running low out of ink and the paper I wanted printed was like half-faded, half-legible.

      Next morning, I remember I have to print something out for someone. Lo and Behold, my parents' printer is running low of ink and half-legible, half-faded!

      Talk to the people that deal in Chakras and what-not, they know how to open up that third eye or whatever.

      And if you have a prophetic dream and something around that way happens the next day, confirm to yourself that the dream was prophetic! Do not say "Coincidence" or it'll greatly hamper the will to conjure up more future telling dreams.

      ...That is all.

      I've had a few dreams of unimportant events and more important events that happened almost exactly in my dream. Sure, it could have been a coincidence each time, but that's one bunch of huge coincidences then.

      Sure, why not. They happen because we know it will happen without knowing it consciously, so we can't avoid something we already know will happen. IMO of course. Nothing mystical about it, it's the brain letting you know before you know, and i think they have done things on this to show we can do stuff like this without sconsciously knowing it. Maybe not dreaming, but other things.

      It happens to me all the time.
      Weather it's incredibly small and stupid things, or huge revelations with friends and family, you name it, it's happened.
      I find it quite mystifying, but I see it as a sort of gift, therefore, don't question it.
      But I do question why I sometimes dream the future of the most stupid things you can think of.

      I had this as a kid, little things like someone saying something or someones face that would immediately bring me to a point where I knew I had seen it before, exactly as it was happening.

      I eventually got used to it and shrugged it off.

      I dont know when I stopped having those dreams, but I havent had one for a few years now. I still have my little deja vu moments happen every once in a great while, and now they cause me to stop for a moment. A few have came back enough that I remember my thoughts after waking up the next day.

      My best guess is those dreams were small signs that I would pass ( and remember ) when I found that point in my life. Your guess is as good as mine for whether I found the right path and they arent needed, or Im on the 'wrong' path completely. I dont know, and its not something that bothers me.

      Take it as a warning in case the dreams stop occuring, I guess.

      Yeah, but assuming there's NOTHING mystical about it, I can't dream of a room I've never seen before, a girl I've never seen before and the crappy teenager activities they have on the cruise ship 4 months before the holiday, before we even looked on the travel website and saw the trip to Norway. And yet I went to Norway, and I did the crappy teenager activities they had, and ended up in a group that girl, and we ended up walking through that room.

      And yet I dreamt of just that.

      Although the room was on the ground floor and I remember glass double-doors...

      Aaanyway...


      Assuming all mystical stuff is impossible, the alternative explanation would be that I dreamt of two people in a large room very similar to the one on the ship 4 months later, with a band playing and a piano, and after the cruise ship I vaguely remembered that dream, and filled in the gaps with what really happened, and now I have a false memory.

      But that would be really damn dissapointing, I'd say.

      Absolutely. The first thing you have to get is that time is only a useful illusion. It exists for us as Tonal beings to frame and understand events and process information. Everything and everyone exists at the same instant. That is the Great Mystery - what some call "The Source", "God", "Ohm", etc.

      When we dream, we exist in an in-between place between the Spirit World - the Nagual - and the physical or Tonal world.

      In this state, we can journey anywere and anywhen. We can visit those who are alive now, those who were alive, and those who are not yet alive as well as places and times. Those accomplished in AP, OBE, Jouneying, etc. can do this in an awake state. But for the rest, it usually happens easiest during the Dreamtime.

      When we see those who are alive now, we see them as they are.

      I once visited my little sister this way. I was in the midwest and she was half a world away in Baghdad. I was able to see her exactly how she was at that moment. What she was wearing, what she was doing, even what she was feeling.

      It's a little harder to judge when we see things or people that haven't existed yet within our understanding of time and we tend to blow off as "just a dream" when we visit something that occurred in what we consider the past.

      How? Well, that's pretty much the basic question isn't it? Deep thought said "42", but that's just because people don't ask good questions.

      Seriously, there's probably just about as many ways to gt into that state as there are people. Some use deep meditation, some use prayer, some use ritual... however it's done, it needs to be what works for you and in the end, it's all the same stuff.
      Be yourself - everyone else is taken.

      Well then, i dunno. Maybe you knew from TV the activitys from a show you watched, the room you were at the TV too or a couincidence (if they exist). The girl you saw, and it was also a couincidence she was thee, or somehow you knew she was there but forget she was going.
      Could be anything, or could be nothing.

      Déjà-vu is most likely just a mix up in the brain with the short-term memory and the long-term memory. Scientific.

      And dreaming about the future?
      Either you´r exaggerating your own dream or you´r mind just tricks your own brain and thoughts so that you Think that you have dreamt it.

      But maby you have dreamed something similiar to the events that took place and thought it was the same.

      No matter what the chances of dreaming about the future barely exists. It's not logical.

      I guess we should go back in time and tell the people that lived before us that the world is flat, because clearly that is logical. Look outside, does the world look like a sphere to you? No, it looks flat.

      Logic is coming to a conclusion based on the evidence presented to you.

      It doesnt mean you have all of the evidence, though.

      I've had this happen to me too. Usually any precognitive dreams that I have are about mundane things like food, but I've had enough of them to make me think that the brain might have a mechanism for predicting very specific events.

      No, but there are more evidence of physical laws, quantum physics and so on that makes futuredreaming much more unlikely.

      Can, and have dreamed about the future. Ive had enough of these experiences that I need no further proof. I also accept that that will never be enough for you.

      Dreaming about the future is as old as stories of people dreaming, Id say. Saying its impossible because modern science hasnt found it yet is a little interesting.

      The room is pretty distinct, I've seen nothing like it on TV.
      Hmm...

      I never said it's impossible, but it's very very much unlikely.
      And yes I don't think subjective experiences is enough as a proof of futuredreaming

      I want to be very clear about this:
      I HAVE PRECOG. AKA a couple weeks ago I started repeatedly predicting the future.
      Best example yet: Dreamt my mom was standing over my, I was lying on couch, she said she mightve caught a mild stomach bug.

      Happened the next day.

      I have visible proof that precog exists.

      Last night I dreamed I was in my kitchen at the table eating tart, there were two tarts on the table, one with apple slices and one without..

      And later in the day, (real world). My mum made two tarts, one with apple slices and one without and I ate some after dinner, I didn't realise the connection for a while after dinner.

      This is cool. Let's get more stories up here. Boring as they may be, I promise, I won't be bored by them.

      About a month ago I had a dream I took Rt. 78 down to another road (written in my DJ) and went to Baltimore (I live in Pennsylvania). The next day, my friend spontaneously decided we should go to Delaware Valley college to party. I took Rt. 78 to another road to get there, and I can count the number of times I've been on 78 on one hand. I told my friend about the dream when we got onto 78. Needless to say I was more than careful driving on this road. Then, I decided to test if it were some sort of fortelling of future events by careening down the road at over 120 MPH. Nothing happened, but it is still weird.
      Once upon a time a disciple went to his guru and asked him, 'Guru, what is life?' To which the guru replies, after much thinking, 'My Son, life is like a fountain.' The disciple is outraged. 'Is that the best you can do? Is that what you call wisdom?' 'All right,' says the guru; 'don't get excited. So maybe it's not like a fountain.'

      I have dreamed lotto numbers that came true. I only dreamt three numbers as I excited myself awake but those three sets of numbers came out in that exact order during the draw that weekend. Coincidence I don't think so.
      Before the draw I sent an email to a friend telling them to buy a ticket. They never did, they thought I was crazy, but the first three numbers came true!!

      there are many scientific explanations explaining déjà vu (which means 'already seen' - there are also experiences called déjà visité, vécu and sente). personally, i don't believe there is anything "paranormal" about these phenomenon's - but i am uncertain, i would like to believe they have something to do with parallel universes or something a little more exciting than some of the theories from scientists. nothing is set in stone, though.
      ANYWAY, i think that precognition's are a totally different ball game - for example, i was dreaming a few nights a go and saw some random kid from school walk by (yeah, so what?). i hadn't seen him for years... easy to dismiss, i often see people from my past, especially school. the next day i was out drinking and noticed him walk by a lot older (...that's what happens). ok, so it isn't huge - but it did make me think.

      remember this argument from the skeptics though: the brain will naturally remember "coincidences" often than "non-coincidences"... meaning, if you have an experience or an event happens which you feel you had predicted in the past - you're surely going to remember these occasions and dismiss the instances in the cases you were wrong, right?
      now i think about all of the other exisiting people i have noticed passing by in my dreams that i haven't seen the next day after many years of no contact, one person has to be a simple coincidence; it really isn't all that encouraging, sadly!
