Deja Vu often works exactly as your experience/example said, other times it doesn't. It is a moment when a person realizes that they know what is going to happen next.
I've had enough encounters with Deja Vu to come to the conclusion that such occurances are a sign of a life decission having been made. If the experience happens exactly as the Deja Vu indicated then the decission was made to accept the decission and its consequences. If it doesn't happen just as expected then the decission was made to take a different path. The Deja Vu is the event telling you the outcome of your decission. These decissions are usually given to us during a dream state, which is why we have no recollection of what the decission concerned, just the conformation or rejection of the choice.
This. Definitely this.
Brian, you're old enough to know this. I am getting there. But for the young, it must be much more confusing... And only those of us with the desire to know
and the wisdom and aptitude to learn
will ever reach your recognition of the phenomenon.
Deja-vu isn't the decision itself.... the de-javu only 'marks' the decision.
