In the late 1950's, my mother woke up from a dream, my sister crying is what caused her to awaken. She went to check on my sister. My sister had been having a nightmare. When she described the dream to my mother, it was the same dream that my mother was having apparently simultaneously.
It wasn't a typical dream either. My two sisters were being chased by a furry animal, which my mother describes as looking 'like a groundhog' and my oldest sister was holding my other sister's hand while they ran, practically dragging her since she couldn't keep up with her.

I have a few personal ones that are still baffling me.
Husband buys a second hand car and finds an MOT certificate that doesn't belong to that car. It isn't that important but he remembers the number plate as it was an easy one.
The next day he drives to Welwyn Garden City and a car is following him [only around a roundabout and another road]. In it is a young girl. He notices the make of the car and looks [mirror image] at her number plate and doesn't believe his eyes, as it is the same one on the stray MOT cert he has got. He puts his emergency lights on and beeps to get her attention and then signals for them both to stop. They are in the middle of town by now. They get out and he is so confused but tells her that he has her MOT cert at home. She is equally baffled and tells him that she has lost it. So they exchange phone numbers and he asks for her address [yes I know he could have been a mad killer ] and sends her the cert through the post. Very very strange.
The other one concerns my sister who back in the 60's was modelling a one off school timetable advert for a fountain pen. She is the front teen holding it up in front of a group of others. This timetable went throughout Europe for kids to have for free as an advertising campaign for said fountain pen ["Geha" if anyone is interested].
She eventually marries and has a kid.
Meanwhile in Hungary a boy has a crush on the girl on the timetable, cuts her out and hangs her on the wall.
Time passes, the boy grows up, comes to Germany and works in the Postoffice with a lady who is now divorced, he becomes her rock and eventually they marry. Years later they clean their loft and he finds a wad of those timetables. He calls her over and tells her that he used to have a crush on the girl...to which my sister tells him that it is her. So he married his timetable girl without knowing...ahhhh [They've been married over 30 years now].
There might be more but I can't think further at the moment and I am coloring my hair so I have to stop here.edit on 14-9-2012 by Hecate666 because: (no reason given)

I have never heard those stories before, thank you for sharing!
I have one coincidence that sticks out in my mind right now. It isn't amazing, but it was interesting.
It is a long story so I will try to make it quick.
My dad owned a house when he met my mother which he sold when they got married. My husband's uncle and aunt bought the house from my dad, and my husband spent his summers there. I've known my husband for 12 years and we just discovered this last year during a conversation. We couldn't believe we were talking about the same house.
Edit: Just read this in the news and thought it was pretty relevant
Ohio Man saves stranger twice
A man is at the lake when a little boy comes and tells him his father is hurt. The man goes to see and the father has three fish hooks stuck in his hand. He removes the hooks and the two part ways. Eight years later, he sees a man and boy on the side of the road. He stops, and gets out of his car to help them. Just then, a drunk driver crashes into his car. If his car wasn't there, the drunk driver would have crashed into the father and son. After talking, the two men discover they knew each other from the incident 8 years prior. Crazy story!

One morning I awoke to my brother and my cousin telling my dad about the dream that they had the night before. My cousin had spent the night as him and my oldest brother were good friends, and my cousin was also my good friend(he's no longer on earth).
Anyways, My brother was dreaming that he was in a cave-in, trapped beneath some rubble of a building. At the same time, my cousin was dreaming that he was trying to pull my brother out from under a fallen tree. My cousin, like me, was a sleep-walker, and he had my brother by the big toe, trying to pull him out of bed, while my brother was screaming, thinking he was being pulled out from under a building. It was truly funny to hear them recount that dream several times over the years.

This story is not as grand as these others but I thought it was cool anyway. I had a fever and had been sick for a while when my mom broke her ankle and had surgery. She was staying at my house and realized she needed more meds from the pharmacy. So even though I am sick and feel like crap i go into town to get her pills. When it was time to pay for them I realized I had forgotten my checkbook! I prayed hard while i emptied out my wallet, dollars and ALL my change was on the counter. I counted it and had the EXACT amount! Down to the last penny!
