Just about everyone goes through Deja Vu at some point, right? So I'm wondering: How much time do you feel passes, on average, between when you initially had the dream/vision/premonition to the actual moment when you go through that experience in real life? And do you experience deja vu over important moments, or nonsense insignificant moments?

Never really thought about it.

Anywho, it varies. Most of the time, though, I usually experience deja vu atleast a year after the initial event occured.

ive actually had de ja vu to the point where i could tell you what would happen next, except if i told someone, it would be wrong. Thus i believe its all in my head, and i dont believe in me making prophecies, especially cause i cant remember my dreams most of the time. But if someone can tell the future, please tell me the next time i will have sex ;) .

I've experienced it before, the feeling that this exact scenario has unfolded before. Though nobody is exactly sure what causes it, scientists theorize that it's a mini seizure, short circuiting the part of your brain that deals with incoming real-time stimulus, and the part that stores memories. Therefore making real-time data seem to you like a memory.

Most of the time this happens so quick it's over before you recognize what's going on. that theory sounds reasonable except for one thing. I have had experiences where I felt the Deja Vu feeling, and it lasted long enough for me to accurately predict events moments before they happen, or something someone is about to say; word for word. Kind of unsettling, but interesting all the same.

Well.. I think deja vu has little to do with dreams. But to me it was as if I experienced a certain situation as if I had been there before.

Not so very strange, because you may remember certain places you have seen when you were kid.

But sometimes I have had a predicting dream. Which is very frustrating because it's never giving you a clue of what really going to happen..

A week or two ago I dreamt I lost my digicam in a storm where a pile of water came bursting over me. I interpreted it as if I was on board the navy ship I sailed with years ago.
But now I also could say I have seen Katerina in my dreams, before it happened. But that's BS of course.
It's quite easy to bend a situation in some other direction to fit reality.

I believe in paranormal experiences if I could dream which horse would win a race, put money on it and walk home a rich man.
But I don't because I think gambling is stupid. ;)

About one year and frour months between I dreamed hearing the phrase "which are you more afraid of, spanking or bugs?" and then hearing it for real in Las Vegas. Although I think this qualifies more as clairaudiance than deja vu.

if prophecy is true you can't trust it because it could be interpretted so many different ways, and end up meaning so many different things
