    My parents had something parallel to winning the lottery happen. The result was that they became convinced they would never run out of money and started spending like they had hundreds of millions. But they didn't have hundreds of millions. And they went through almost all of it while still claiming they'd never run out.

    They didn't bet on horses. They bought them.

    I don't recommend buying race horses. You pay for them while they're eating and sleeping and pooping and you don't make money off them unless they win the race, which they mostly do not.


    If I dreamt lottery numbers I'd play them. I'd be stupid not to, imo. And if I won, I'd set up a trust and leave it to my son. Then he'd be set for life and I'd be happy.

    My father has been putting lots of money on the lottery, horse races and some other sports for more than 30+ years now.

    He's still waiting for the "big payout", personally I've just seen the futility of that. It's mostly hopium.

    My husband and I went on a road trip. The night before I dreamt I was seeing turkey vultures. I kept seeing more and closer. Then I began to look for an eagle or hawk because I've learned that they will fly with groups of vultures for cover. I've spotted both that way. So in the dream I'm looking for an eagle. I see a couple more vultures up close and then, sure enough, I see an eagle. I try to determine if it's a bald eagle or not.

    Next day, it was a sunny drive. Along a highway I began to notice many turkey vultures flying overhead, out from the trees, over the road below the tops of the trees. I said to my husband that we might see an eagle. I saw more vultures close to the road, coming out of or landing in trees. I said that I predict we'd see an eagle because this was so much like the dream I had the night before.

    A few miles down the road I saw a brown bird, lighter brown than the vultures, come out of a tree and land on the grass on the other side of the highway. As it landed I saw the white tail open up and I knew it was an eagle. I told my husband to keep his eye on the side of the road. As we approached the eagle took off and circled back around and almost over us. He saw it take off and remarked on it's path.

    Then he says, "Didn't you just say like five minutes ago that we'd see an eagle?"

    I sure did.

    I've been having some interesting deja vu. Rather than the exact moment, the deja vu is related to how it might have unfolded had things been different. And happily, the actual manifestation has been better than the possibility.

    As an example, I was spending time with family and then had a deja vu where the interaction had been less pleasant and more tense. The actual interaction was good. It felt like I'd seen how things might have unfolded.

    I think I already related this story about packing furniture.

    I stepped down carefully and then realized I could have hurt myself had I been careless, which I almost was. I then had a deja vu about having bruised my leg and sitting on the curb.

    But I didn't bruise it and so didn't need to sit on the curb.

    And the change was simple, paying attention to actions as opposed to being distracted by thoughts, to which I am prone.

    I've always been quite careful with my actions and words, but sometimes when I have been too much in my thoughts then there have been moments when I have slipped or even possibly injured myself, never anything too serious. It wouldn't have happened if I hadn't been lost in my thoughts that moment, it was careless of me as I always tell myself that I should pay attention to my surroundings.

    It's interesting what you said about deja vu's and possibly altering events or possible outcomes. Do we have free will and how much? I think all is already written and we just get to experience it here, but I think there is still some kind of possibility for us to at least avoid harmful things from happening, I suspect that is protection from our higher self and or the guardian angels too.

    I don't remember having any significant deja vu's in a good while now, but I still remember when I used to have them.

    It's always quite a weird and interesting feeling.

    "The sentiment du déjà-vu is based, as I have found in a number of cases, on a foreknowledge in dreams, but we saw that this foreknowledge can also occur in the waking state. In such cases mere chance becomes highly improbable because the coincidence is known in advance. It thus loses its chance character not only psychologically and subjectively, but objectively too, since the accumulation of details that coincide immeasurably increases the improbability of chance as a determining factor. (For correct precognitions of death, Dariex and Flammarion have computed probabilities ranging from 1 in 4,000,000 to 1 in 8,000,000.) So in these cases it would be incongruous to speak of “chance” happenings. It is rather a question of meaningful coincidences. Usually they are explained by precognition—in other words, foreknowledge.

    As always when an external event touches on some unconscious knowledge, this knowledge can reach consciousness. The event is recognized as a déjà vu, and one remembers a pre-existent knowledge about it."
    ~ Carl Jung

    I decided long ago to not interfere with my dreams but let them unfold and show me what they had to show. I didn't want to screw up things with expectations or hopelessness.

    It's likely that things are set in stone like a novel a person might write. They know the characters and story. But through the writing and editing process details alter, events take on new aspects.

    So not all details will be inevitable. Because 'there are many paths to the same destination', I believe there is wiggle room.

    I think it was last night that I had a dream that I was accosted outside of a roadside restaurant/bar. I was accused of stealing something from the back of this guy's pickup. It was obvious that I hadn't done it but the guy just had a sinister smirky look on his face. About that time another guy came from around another car towards me and it was then I knew I was in trouble with these guys. I didn't know if they had weapons or what so I was pretty unsure as to what to do.

    It was a weird dream as there was no real context in my life to precipitate that kind of dream. The thing is my half-sisters from California are flying in tomorrow afternoon and will drive a rented car to their hotel which is in the community where I live. I offered to meet them at the airport to help navigate them to the hotel but they declined saying they wouldn't have any problems. I just said ok, but had a urge to tell them to be careful. My sister, the shrink, is completely open to the paranormal and has stated that 'our' mother seemed to have had a number of such experiences. She picked up on my empathic nature immediately she said. (I don't know how true that is). Empathy is not of necessity a supernormal characteristic in any case.

    I didn't because as when my daughter was hurt on an outing with her friends, I had that spidey sense tingling that it was going to happen, but it was just a nudge if you know what I mean so I didn't mention it. I'm sure they will be okay as there was only a loose connection, though the time proximity was close but not that close.

    I think it's obvious that you have an ability to sense things such as threats at least when it comes to loved ones, this ability is innate in every human being, but I think some people are just more aware or sensitive. Although I would know nothing about being a parent, from what I've heard mothers tend to have a very deep connection to their children often and can feel if something is wrong or that they would need help even if they are very far away. So why could it not apply to fathers too, from what I've gathered you tend to have a quite close relationship with your daughter so obviously you would sense if something is threatening her. Perhaps you can pick up such sensations from other people who are close to you. This sixth sense, if you will, has kept people safe and alive for millenias when danger has been lurking around the corner.

    The Native Americans would dream about where the hunt would be. They would then go and find it. I believe instincts are in part influenced by dreams.
