thinking of someone, then.....

Posted by obsidian on August 2, 2010, at 21:49:35

you see them or they call....
this has happened to me too often to be a coincidence, and I am not one who tends to believe in mystical forces in the universe. I swear though that it happens. I feel like it's not just coincidence because they are often not people I'd be thinking about a lot, but I happen to be thinking about them before I see them and before they call.

I think there's something to it, but I don't understand it.

My husband does that with TV shows. He'll think of an episode on an old TV show and then it will come on. He comes and tells me each time.

I don't necessarily believe in mystical forces, but I do believe there are things that aren't readily seen but can be observed.

Perhaps there are unremembered anniversaries that bring each of you to the other's mind before they call. Or something happens that independently reminds each of the other?

But are you aware that you thought of the person or thing before you then get the call or the show comes on, etc.? Or is it that you recall thinking about the person/show/whatever only after they call or it comes on or whatever?

I find that I am thinking about the person, and it's not generally a thing that I'd be doing often, and then they call, or I see them. It happens with dreams too. I will dream about the person first and see them. It's happened with people I barely know. No reason to dream about them, then I'll see them.

I don't think I'm psychic :-)....but I think my brain is "funny"

I just wondered. I've had times when I've recalled recently thinking of someone once they called, but I'm not sure if I've experienced what you describe. I have had dreams about folks and then heard from them or something. It's an interesting phenomenon.
