In one of my other stories, I mentioned that I have had some other experiences with the paranormal. I'm not sure that this qualifies, but I wanted to share anyway.
The earliest that I can remember having one of these experiences was in the 5th grade. What is that, 11, 12 years old? I went to bed like any other night and had a vivid dream about school. Yes, I know, how boring am I that I dreamt of school. In my dream, I was telling a friend about a comic book I had found in a garbage bin. It was from the 1960's, Captain America, and aside from a small tear on the back cover, it was in good condition. About two weeks went by after the dream when, sure enough, I found the comic book in a garbage bin that had been tossed into the desert field at the end of the street I lived on. I went to school the next day and started to tell my friend when I had the feeling like I had done this already. I actually had a hard time forming words at that point.
This has happened a few times in my life, never really about major live events. Every dream is really vivid. In one occasion I was picking up some new item at the grocery store, something that didn't even exist at the time of my dream. I bought the item about 3 weeks to a month after the dream, it wasn't until I got home that I realized I had done this before.
In another instance it was the conversation I had with my Commanding Officer when he told me I was going over-seas. The real conversation happened about a month later. The one that disturbs me the most is the dream I had telling a friend not to worry, his family was fine, too far away from the towers to be affected. That dream was 2 months before the events of 9/11.
I understand the basic concept of Deja Vu, but this seems like something wholly different, thoughts?
