I am sending this story so that I may be enlightened. When I was still in my 2nd year high school (SY 1987-88), I attended this summer camp which was organized by our rector of our school. It was held in Mindoro; an island part of the Philippines. It was a 2 days travel because we have to sleep over at an another sister school in Makati and have to move again the following day for the port of Batangas. From there we took this ferry boat bringing us to Calapan, Mindoro.
The island wasn't that developed yet. All around are lush green forest and coconut trees along the seashores. The road going to the camp, which is a major seminary, is still undeveloped.
When we arrived at the place, and our camp assistants had brought us to our designated barracks, which was infact a seminarians dormitory, I had this strong feeling that the place is so familiar. Especially when I passed by the assigned room for our rector, it seems that I had been there before.
To tell you frankly, that was the first time I stepped foot on that island so it is very unlikely that I am having deja vu. I immediately talked with our rector who was arranging things for the duration of the camping and asked him something that just came up from my vision. I asked him if that place originally belongs to a wealthy couple that lived before the Japanese war? Also if that couple had only one daughter and the room that he was using now was being used as a clinic during the Japanese invasion? And our rector looked at me straight in the eye and he said that was all true and how did I know all about it. I told him that from the moment that we stepped on the ground of the seminary I had this strange feeling, and a short vision at the same time that I have been in that place before and can still remember the same location of his room and the old piano in the basement.
He said that the place was donated by a couple who has been distraught because of the death of their only daughter, and who used to play that old piano.
Another instance happened here in Grand Cayman, Cayman Island last 2006. By the way, I just came here last Dec. Of 2005. Me and my friends were staying in an apartelle along the 7 Mile Beach. I was living on the 4th floor and they were staying on the second floor of the building. At that time it happened that my friends and I had the same days-off so I decided to spend the whole morning in their room. When we were hanging out, I was in my friends bed tinkering with her laptop, together with two other friends and the other preparing breakfast. It occured again, this feeling and vision. This time it's not only vision but real time events. Strange thing is what we are doing, what we are saying, people in that room and the scenario are all familiar, as if it happened before and that what was happening was just a recollection of what has happened before.
I told them this and they just told me it was just deja vu. These occurances happen to me most of the time. The strange part about it is, it usually happens in a place that I haven't been to before.
To those who have read this, I am seeking your opinion so that I may understand better and fully appreciate this strange vision.
Thank you and I will try to contribute again next time.
