What do you do when a dream comes true--literally? Well, I have some very strange examples to share. Welcome to my dream world. It's not always problem solving or assimilation of new realities like deaths in the family or divorce. No, I also have these dreams that, well, involve actualities.
The first premonition dream I remember having I just after my son was born, a little over a week after. It was an Aloha Airlines flight with a hole blow in the fuselage and a flight attendant sucked out of it. The thing that stood out for me was the perspective. I was on the co-pilot's side of the plane, flying without a plane slightly behind the airplane when the hole blew out and the flight attendant went hurling. I thought it was just a strange dream, but while I nursed my newborn, I watched the news and they showed the exact scenario. It disturbed me, but I put it away and ignored it. I was a new mom and had better things to do.
However, over the ensuing decades, I continued to have earthquake, helicopter and airplane disaster dreams. The disturbing thing about the plane ones was that I was a passenger and I saw everything, the people, the conversations, how it looked when it happened, what everyone done. Flight 800, I went all the way to the bottom of the ocean. Each time I know it's a premonition because I can't be seen or heard by anyone and I know I'm there as a witness. The most interesting one was a hostage situation in Africa that crashed into the water. I was on the pilot side of the plane near the front. In fact, for some reason I could see the pilot and out the windshield as if the cockpit door was open. I looked out and watched as we rushed to the water. The perspective was amazing. These always happen within 48 hours of the event, usually within 12-24 hours. I have no idea why I have them, why I'm tied to plane especially. There is much to learn about this phenomena. But, having sat through dozens of plane wrecks, needless to say I'm not keen about flying because I know what it feels like to go down.
I also started having in recent years dreams where I visit people far away in other countries. I wake up feeling exhausted like I traveled all night. One time, I decided to figure out if I actually did meet this one blogger in her country. I contacted her and asked if anything strange happened recently. She got back to me after looking at my profile pic and said "it was you?" She described the scene that I had experienced in the dream, even explaining why in the dream she was speaking so slowly, she feared I wouldn't understand her accent. She was a psychic, which explains why she recalls my visit to her home, but later I had another one of a British blogger. She had no memory of the visit, but the marketplace and her mother and their relationship and argument were all accurate as was the part where in the dream I asked for a specific mall and she said it existed and was not far from where she lived.
The other night, I had one that will stick with me for life. I was for some reason in an airport greeting my sister and her kids and I looked over and saw my father who has been dead for 31 years. This may not be exceptional except, as you may remember I have facial amnesia. In dreams, I don't see the faces of people I know, I simply know it's them somehow psychically, but I never see their heads or faces. But, I stared directly at my father, saw every line on his face, the color of his skin, his height, his expression, the dent in his chin, the scar from being attacked by a dog as a child and I drank in every detail, going back and forth, studying him. It was the first face I have ever clearly seen in my mind EVER. I went and hugged him and somehow I remembered what his hug felt like, but I knew what it felt like as my full height now which I was not when he died. It was so amazingly real that I feel that I had an authentic encounter.
So, have you ever had a dream that cam true?
Every now and again I have dreams of mine that come true. its never anything huge, just me walking into a store or something or seeing some random person.ReplyDelete
I had a vivid dream about a plane smashing into the ground, just before 9/11. I didn't know anyone on the plane, I was just an observer as it crashed right in front of me.ReplyDelete
Yup. Sounds like one of these dreams. On 9-11, I had one that a man was on a plane and he was screaming as if in victory as the plane slammed into a building. I woke up with a scream, sitting up in bed, thinking he flew into my home. My ex came into the room and said, "good, you're awake. Someone flew a plane into one of the twin towers." I went into the other room and soon after, the second tower got hit.ReplyDelete
I very rarely have these dreams, and I don't consider myself psychic at all.ReplyDelete
Three days before 9-11, I dreamed I was in the cockpit of a plane in a huge storm. Everything outside the windows was all gray and full of lightening, and there were other jets flying at me in all directions. Just as the dream ended I was raising my arms to cover my face and screaming because I knew we were going to all crash together. I know several other non-psychic people who also had crashing plane dreams right before the twin towers.
One time I also dreamed that my brother was either coming or going (don't remember which one anymore) in his old Firebird and it exploded in my parents' driveway. I was tearing through the wreckage looking for him, and just as I got to that last piece of debris that would have told me if he was dead or alive, I woke up. My hands were on FIRE, as if I really had been digging through a burning car. A few days later, after I told him and my sister-in-law about the dream, she turned to him and yelled, "You're going to get that gas tank FIXED!" Here he had a leak in his tank and he and a friend fixed it with chewing gum. I think the incident really freaked him out.
Very very amazing. People with clairvoyant dreams don't necessarily realize or recognize their psychic skills while awake, but in dream states they're receptive to information. If your learn techniques for going into alpha state you can actually design a little office in our mind that you enter with a screen on the wall to let yourself get information. Do some google searches on how to enter alpha state. I'd be curious to see what your produce with some journalling.
amazingly awesome stories.ReplyDelete
I have had dreams that have come true but I don't think any as big as these. But when I do dream of something and it happens or I experience the same thing in real life as my dream It scares me and I think I chalk it up to coincidence because there are a lot of bad dreams that I have that I don't want them to ever come true.ReplyDelete
There's something different about prediction dreams compared to usual dreams. In usual dreams, we get scared and react and interact with others. In premonition dreams, there is a sense when you wake up that it was already fact. You may not be able to or won't interact with others in the dream--it's like you're a witness more than a participant. That might help you in the future to tell the difference. Look back at the dream that came true and see what was different about the feel of it. Then, in the future when you get that same feel to a dream, you will have an edge up on knowing if it might a be a premonition.
I will try that Autumforest. Maybe I can pick the winning powerball numbers. ;)ReplyDelete
I've had dreams and premonitions since I was a child; everything from auto accidents to airline crashes. Like the time I woke at three in the morning and forewarned him of a car accident. Or the precognitive dreams of the flight that landed safely in the river. I'm not able to interact. I merely am a spectator who's witnessing what is about to take place. Even precognitive flashes while I'm fully awake are the same way.ReplyDelete
It's a relief to know that. I'm purposely kept myself from other psychics or people teaching the skills because the strange nature of my synesthesia makes it possible for me to be a better interpreter and I don't want to take on someone else's techniques, but I am thrilled to hear that you were a spectator too. It's a definite warning sign that the dream may come true. My son has these too. I think he'd like them to go away. He dreamed of Billy Mays death about 24 hours before. He thought it was weird to have such a random dream about someone he doesn't particularly think about. Then, Boom! Billy was dead.
I know exactly what you mean. I've had people ask why I don't instruct on my blog and for the exact same reasons you don't. Every person interprets and processes information in different ways. I've never asked my son whether or not he has precognition; but I do know he's sensitive to energies. He tends to block it out. Which for some may be the way to go. My most recent episode had to do with the computer problems with the shuttle. I actually tweeted about the two computer failures prior to the occurrences. I thought perhaps they'd already occurred; but apparently not.ReplyDelete
By the way; the new blog is beautiful!ReplyDelete
