It happens a lot less now, but when I was a few years younger, I would often have dreams that seemed to directly and very accurately predict the
future; from full conversations to important events, with no pattern in time - some would predict something happening one or two days in the future,
others would be months ahead.
However, it is not always clear to me that I am not experiencing deja vu; when these events do occur, I will at first have a heavy sense of deja vu,
and then realise/remember that this has happened in a dream. However, I do seem to lose a lot of my perception of reality when this happens; I'm so
thrown by this heavy duty deja vu that I tend to have trouble distinguishing what I have dreamt and what is actually happening, and therefore cannot
be sure if this lapse in perception somehow causes me to believe I have dreamt this.
This had gotten so bad that I would then have trouble distinguishing which is dream and which is reality to a point where the two events seem to
become one due to the huge accuracy and correlation, or even I would swap one with the other; before snapping out of this lapse I would sometimes
consider that I was dreaming now and this event had already happened, and upon regaining a sense of where I was I would realise this was not the
This still happens, with the same accuracy to this day, albeit much less frequently, but I am never sure if the feeling is just deja vu, and I trick
myself into believing I have dreamt this, or if I have genuinely dreamt it; it seems the only times when I can be sure if I genuinely saw this
beforehand is when it really doesn't matter, like, for example, detailed yet useless foresight of unimportant conversations.
Is there any way of disgtinguishing between or seperating genuine pre-cognition of events, and a huge lapse in my perceptions, causing me to somehow
create this memory of a dream?
And, taking this further; how is it possible for anyone to know? How is it possible to distinguish between this huge breakdown in the perception of
reality and real paranormal foresight?
Any information, help or even advice would be very appreciated, thanks.
I am new to this board; I have read most of the posting rules, and I think this definately qualifies as an acceptable thread, but if I've done
something wrong I apologise.
