Was It A Vision?

Updated on March 28, 2010

Something happened to me the other day that I have never experienced. After it happened I went straight the internet to find out the real meaning of it. I seem to have come up against a semi-brick wall. I still am not sure what it was, I do know that it was something nice and good, because of the was that it made me feel: happy.

First I looked up :premonition - Definition (n.) A presentiment of the future; a foreboding.(n.) A warning in advance; a forewarning

Well I knew it wasn't that. Then I looked up 'déjà vu'

  1. An impression of having seen or experienced something before: Old-timers watched the stock-market crash with a distinct sense of déjà vu.
  2. Dull familiarity; monotony: the déjà vu of the tabloid headlines.

It wasn't that either.

Then I thought of vision - Definition (n.) The faculty of sight; eyesight: poor vision.(n.) Unusual competence in discernment or perception; intelligent…(v.) To see in or as if in a vision; envision

Now the verb form of this word best decribes what I saw, but I did not envision it. So I am still stuck as to what it was.

I even posted the question ' How Do I know If I Had a Vision?' here on hubpages. I had two responses: 1)If you're not sure, I'd probably say you didn't have one. That being said, I think your question bodes a hub of it's own. What was it that happened to where you're wondering if you had one? I believe that we can and do communicate with and receive communication from beyond so maybe you did. Either way, you should should write about your experience...

2)Note it down or remember it. Visions occur prior to something about to happen, either good or bad, follow it if you remember what it was about. If it's something good keep thinking about it, if not, think about something good instead. Just remember it and you will now at the right time.One response was that I should write this Hub.

So here is what happened. I got up Friday morning and went into the kitchen to get a cup of coffee. I started out the door into the garage to drink my coffee and smoke a cigarette. As I stepped over the threshold I looked up and a dear friend of mine was sitting there, smileing at me. He was drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette in a T-shirt and shorts, as if waiting for me to join him. He is 1600 miles from me. In that instant I was in the moment and I felt good inside and I thought this feels really nice sharing coffee with him. Then it dawned on me and I thought what the hell is this and blinked and the garage was empty.

I have to say I shook my head and stopped for a moment to gather my thoughts on what had just happened. I have never had a premonition. I have had dejavu. But I have never experienced anything like this in my life. If I was sleeping I could say, well it was just a dream. But it wasn't a dream. It was so real, so vivid, I can still see him sitting there, as though he himself had just got up and out of bed too. It was as if he was sitting right there in the chair in the garage waiting for me. And I felt as if I was going to sit and enjoy his company and drink coffee with him. I was even smiling at him. Until I realized this cannot be. Then everything was back to normal.

I have since spoke to him and he is fine. As I said this is so strange to me. If it weren't so real, I would think it was just a thought. But it wasn't a thought in my minds eye, it was what my eyes were truly seeing. I am curious as to what you think this might be. So tell me, 'What do you think?' I am open to suggestions.

      wow singlmom, that was totally cool! I wondered whether you called your friend straight away and if the two of you figured out the reason for the vision. I am guessing he was thinking of you exactly the same time you were thinking of him, and voila! I wouldn't be surprised if this was just a fun "trial start" for your new "gift". Remember you said you are now starting to think outside of the square and to dream BIG, well, welcome to your new world outside of that square!! I take the way you were feeling very happy and peaceful about the vision to be a very good sign that it is ALL GOOD! I am so excited for you!! xoxox

      It doesn't seem like something you 'thought' because it wasn't as though you were wishing to see him. And reading about your experience made me think about how many times we 'hear' someone call our name, but we're alone. Mysteries, but nice mysteries.
