Throughout my life i have experienced situations where i have been thinking of someone whom i haven't seen for a while, could be weeks, could be
years and then they appear. Recently this has been happening more frequently. In the past week it has happened 3 times to myself.
Not only with people but also with objects. I have witnessed my partner doing it and my father doing it. All within the last week.
A few examples...
"Was thinking of my cousin, no particular reason why, the thought would just come and that was it, haven't seen her in about 9 months. Go out on
Friday evening and bump into her in town."
"My father asks me about a man i used to work with, i tell him i haven't heard from him in about 9 years. 2 days later i get an e-mail from said man

right back to bus stop, went to interview and gets job."
"I start getting thoughts about the fact i never get the cold anymore. Thoughts just keep coming to me that i've not had a cold for ages! 2 days
later i have a cold and a chest infection!"
These are a few personal situations that have i have witnessed in the last week or so,,,
I would like to here from those of you who have experienced this and is it increasing in frequency?
Is it just coincidence?
Is there more to this phenomenon?
Can we control it?
I find when i try to do it, it doesn't work. I've found that when these situations have occurred i am not really attached to any outcome. For
