Since as far back as I can remember, I've experienced reoccurring Déjà vu. It never happens in the same moments more than once, as far as I can tell. However, on every occasion, I'm taken aback by how such a crisp recollection leads itself into knowing exactly what happens next. Immobilized and unable to redirect fate as it comes to life before me is one of the worst feelings I've ever felt.
I suspect that my dreams lead me to see these images before they actually happen, though I'm not sure with what clarity. Honestly, I'm not even sure if this is the case at all; it just seems to be the most reasonable and hard felt explanation.
Most fairy tales, myths, and legends seem to depict premonitions as symbolic or allegorical, and with the proper guidance, their significance is revealed (in other words, the manifest content of the dream is decoded into latent content). While I am familiar with those paradoxical dreams common to most people, they don't seem to be the cause of my Déjà vu, or whatever term you want to use for it.
I've known a few other people who experience this, 2 that are extremely close to me. However, not all of them resist it like I do, but embrace it.
Do you ever experience this or something similar? If so, what is it like?
