Dreams becoming reality

Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top. ~ Virginia Wolfe

Dreams have been a point of interest for me for a couple of years now. I love hearing about others’ dreams, sharing mine and interpreting them.  A few months ago I dreamt that a coworker of mine came to the office in the morning, pulled me aside and whispered to me that she was pregnant. In the dream she asked me not to tell anyone else. When I woke, I wrote what I had seen in my dream journal like I do most mornings and took the journal with me to work (not sure why did that, as that isn’t my normal habit). A couple of hours later, the scenario I had dreamt became reality – my coworker pulled me aside, told me she was pregnant and asked me to keep it a secret for a while. I was thrilled for her and of course remembered my dream, so I pulled out my dream journal to show her the entry: she was floored. I remember her looking at me and saying (lovingly) “You’re weird!” Now she’s got a beautiful round belly full with twins. And I’m still having precognitive dreams. In fact, I find the more open I am to it, the more dreams I have.

Anyone can have precognitive dreams. Studies have shown that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream.  Two weeks before he was killed, Abraham Lincoln had a dream about a funeral at the White House. In the dream, he asked someone who was in the casket and they replied, “The President of the United States”. He told his wife about the dream and two weeks later he was assassinated.

One theory to explain the phenomenon of psychic dreams is that your dreaming mind is able to piece together bits of information and observation that you may normally overlook or that you do not seriously consider when you’re awake. In other words, your unconscious mind knows what is coming before you consciously piece together the same information. Another explanation is it is a message from god/the universe/your spirit guides (whatever you want to call it) giving you a heads up about something.

It is my belief that while we are asleep we are tuning into a high level of consciousness that allows us a peek at our future. They are never meant to scare us, just teach us. They are given to us because our higher selves/guides want us to become more aware of our higher levels of mind and guide us to the realization that there is so much more to this universe than what is shown to us through our five senses. Precognitive dreams are proof of that. If you would like to have more dreams of the future, then mentally ask for them before going to sleep at night. Keeping a dream journal is a great way to document them and will provide you with evidence their existence.

Since I’ve started having precognitive dreams and dreams that help me clear out issues subconsciously, I have been given a couple of good dream books. I always believe that the best person to interpret the dream is the dreamer him/herself, but the books sometimes give insight as to what something symbolizes. Not all dreams are prophetic, but I believe most dreams are filled with symbolism and meaning.  A friend of mine had a dream she was being chased by a pickle. Now, there might be some subconscious meaning in that dream but it’s certainly not going to come true (at least I don’t think so…)

Have you had any prophetic dreams recently? I’d love to hear your stories!

You mention two theories about precognitive dreams. A third is that all of time actually exists in the ever present Now. We, as humans, perceive time linearly because that is how we learn to do so from a young age. Our brains are able to categorize and conceptualize things easier this way. Yet ultimate reality exists outside of the dimension of time. So just like one can remember the past, one can also remember the future. I’m not exactly sure if I subscribe to this theory or not, but thought I should include it as a comment to this post as it is one of the possible theories I’ve come across. I’ve had a few pre-cog dreams and I LOVE them!! See you around!

You’re right – I forgot that theory. It’s a little hard to wrap heads around, I find, because it’s so foreign to the way we think/what we believe right now. Thank you for sharing!

hey, so for a long time ive been searching for answers and explanations… to an extent i think it could be explained but majority will always remain a mystery in my mind. ive been having freaky dreams since im really young. sometimes i had the same dream for a week straight… ive dreamt of the world being enslaved under 1 ruler, everyone was sffering, people being killed etc……. i havent had that dream in over 10 years and i had it again for a few days except this time i wasnt there, i was invisible, but it still the same way. im having dreams again like when i was a kid and some very new freaky one. i had a dream that all the buttons on the cashs at work would change…. i thought whata silly dream out of everything im dreaming thats what comes to me?…. 2 weeks later like in my dream, exactly how i saw it all the buttons on the cashs were changed. it freaked me out like crazy !! ive had so many dreams that freak me out i dont even know where to begin. my brother recently passed away………… i dream abouthim alot, he speaks to me. he shows me things like i had a dream we were all on a bus.. my brother, my cousin and i. my brother was sad in the dream… he looked in really bad shape. i kept telling him how much i love him and how he cant leave me. a girl was walking by eating pills out of a prescription bottle. she looked at my brother and offered him pills. he said yeah but as she was handing it to him i slapped it out of their hands and yelled: NO my brother could die if he takes those… nextt thing you know the bus slams on its breaks and i turned behind only to see the guts of my brother splatered all over the street.. he was gone yet again, that night i had many many dreams over and over replaying in my head of different ways he would die. anyway maybe thats just my subconsious trying to accept his death or maybe it was him sending me messages to accept what happened that it had to happen. (he went to sleep and never woke up at 18) no explanation, no antopsy.. anyway to wrap this up……… i have really freaky dreams. until i met my current bf i couldnt sleep at night until my eyes burnt at 6am and slept for as little hours as i could. he gave me insight and explaination trying to help me out with the anxiety im feeling… but its just feels too real. its like i know my dreams are real… i just i dont know… i even had a dream where this old man approached me and asked me to do something.. i just laughed in my dream in disbelief. he looked at me seriously and said: dont you remember me? youve dreamt this before. your the only 1 that could save them. then i got flashbacks and memories….. i did have that exact dream… when i was maybe 9 yrs old… now im 20. even the girl who was beside me int he dream… i kept saying my bestfriends name, so i knew it was her.. but then when i had the dream yrs ago i didnt know who this girl was….. anyway maybe its just all a concidence or just dreams…………… WHO KNOWS. anyway i have many many mnay more dreams like this.. recently i havent had so many.. many i forget instantly.. weird like i woke up i go through my whole dream in my mind and its gone ! anywayyyyyy, so if anyone can shed some light on this… id appreciate it ! thank you all for taking the time to read.

Hi, I did have one instance of this. Years ago while dating someone, I dreamed I was in a large room and people were walking in a circle around a large tub wearing glasses. Also they had something funny marked on their foreheads. Next day, my boyfriend then invited me to the lab on campus he worked in. There were people walking around of course with goggles on. And when I found him, he was wearing his goggles, standing and washing something in the huge tub-like lab sink. But this didn’t strike me until we went to dinner afterwards, where I saw people walking in with ashes marked on their forehead. It was Ash Wednesday. I’m not Catholic and so was not aware of this tradition. I remember asking “what is marked on their heads?” and needing it explained to me. And that is the instant when it all hit me – the dream! 🙂 I would love to have another dream like that. I did have one other time where a dream really left a mark on me, but not in a premonition type of way. My mother had terminal cancer, and it was very tough as you can imagine. Yet, I remember a great dream that had my mother visiting me (she was still alive at this point though) and she was young with all of her hair and beautiful and vibrant again. This next morning, I woke up with such unexplainable peace and comfort – I couldn’t describe how the dream left me feeling. I really carried that dream with me through her death, knowing (really knowing) she would eventually be alright and free soon.

This is not the first time that i had a precognitive dream or while awake that i had heard a voice in my ear tell me something that was going to happen. But the last time i had one, i laid down to take a nap it was the month of November of 2010 and iall i saw in my dream was darkness and my cousin’s face and i felt death and i knew what it meant. I woke up screaming begging god not to take her away from us i didn’t want to believe that she was going to die but i knew in my heart differently. i called my grandma and told her about it and she said not to worry it was just a dream, i told her i knew different. Then 1 month later December 23rd 2010 she passed away, i was so broken hearted and i felt guilty at the same time i felt i should of done something but i was praying it was a dream and that it would not come true but it did. The strange thing is a few months before i had the dream and she died i kept finding dimes everywhere i went and in the strangest places, so i guess somebody was trying to tell me something. What made me write this tonight is i am having problems with my 21 year old son and he was mad and slammed the kitchen cupboard and a little later i looked in the cupboard and this bowl i had and this big oval plate i had with angels on it broke so as i was cleaning it out and cleaning up the glass in there, now they were on the very top shelf i find a dime. So i decided to find out if dimes had anything to do with heaven or god and i found my results. Tonight was a rough night for me i guess that’s why that dime was there. Thank you
