Hi eNumbra. I thought i would post in this thread for a couple of different reasons.
First of all, I've seen you around and I can tell from how you explain your experience that it was, IMO, not due to what some would otherwise call
"high". Sometimes I see posts from these people and it is quite blatant that they are under the influence of something. You are different.
Second of all, some people, myself included, have an innate precognitive potential that largely goes untapped and unnoticed. In my case, knowing my
family background, who in my family has and has had this "gift" and where it originated, I can tell you that I am quite certain that in my case it
is genetic. I think that all people have it, some more than others, and I also believe that for most people who don't even realize it, from time to
time they have experiences like you have where a profound moment of dejavu or precognitive potential surfaces unconsciously without you initially
I think that what you explain is genuine, it is confusing, and that it can be shocking and surprising because it surfaces from the subconscious level
at odd times and catches you off-guard. I believe that everyone experiences deja-vu because we simply all have much greater potential but it goes
unnoticed and dormant until these rare deja-vu moments surface.
This is probably the first time I have ever talked about my experiences on this subject here at ATS, but I completely understand how you are taken
I have a couple interesting moments I can share.
1 - Yesterday, I was at a "Fred meyer's" store shopping. I took money out also and was getting ready to go across the street to Safeway and buy
some bottled and distilled water. Out of nowhere came this wierd thought about someone I don't even work with. Someone not even in our company (I
have been working at my place of work for half a year and only seen this person once). She is very high strung because of her work-load but really
gets things done. I thought "wow, it would be wierd if I ran into her today. I wonder what it would be like". While I was leaving Safeway with my
water in my shopping cart, I SAW HER. She was walking out of the very same safeway store (though she didn't notice me). I thought it was MUCH MUCH
more than coincidence that this all transpired in about a 10 minute timeframe.
2 - I occasionally listen to a popular paranormal radio show called "Beyond Reality Radio" with Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson from the popular scifi
TV show "Ghosthunters". One episode a while back they had an episode on scientific remote viewing (SRV). They walked the audience through an
entire SRV session focusing on an unknown object they had in a box. They said to draw the object without looking, describe it's texture, color,
etc.. This is what I drew:
The object ended up being a bluetooth earpiece.... I was completely floored.
I do not claim to be psychic. I do not claim to be sensitive or otherwise "gifted". But for whatever reason (probably genetic how I see it) it is
quite clear to me that I have something going on that alot of people don't have.. Years ago I used to meditate frequently and conduct lucid dreaming
( Which basically means dreaming while you KNOW you are dreaming and, therefore, being able to shape and mold the dream and what happens within it).
How I did it was pretty simple. For 3 or 4 months I always kept a notepad next to my bed. When I would wake up from a dream in the middle of the
night or in the morning, I would write down 2 or 3 things I remembered from the dream. Later on that afternoon after I would get home from work, I
would focus on those 2 or 3 things, and in doing so I would be able to recall 80-90 percent of what was in that dream.
Usually i had forgotton my dreams.. This made things much more interesting. I started focusing more and more on being able to control my dreams and
what occurred within them, and pretty soon I was able to do that on a regular basis. Whether or not this had any impact on what is going on now, I
don't exactly know.. But currently I have not meditated in about a year, I do not focus on the lucid dreaming anymore, and I live a very full daily
life with work and a family. The SRV session, to me, was extremely shocking.. It was the first time I had tried SRV.. It kind of wierds me out a
little.. Maybe it was just a fluke. But the details of what I drew were so close to what the actual object was that it was uncanny and unmistakable
