    So, since I'm starting a new thread...

    Mainly simple idiotic ones,

    My idiotic ones are like I'll dream of a light bulb burning out, and sure enough, a light bulb blows! lol

    But one like this,

    I had a deep one a few years ago, and it concerned an Aunt of mine. The dream was me and her walking along a sidewalk next to a park. We were talking, and she told me she was leaving. I asked her where, but she didn't say. The next thing to happen in my dream, was that she turned into an Eagle and flew away.
    About a month after that dream, my Aunt passed away from organ failure. I can't positively say this was prophetic, only because my Auntie was waiting for a liver transplant, and maybe this was my mind coming to grips with an impending loss, and I most certainly would have disregarded this dream if my Aunt had a transplant and survived.

    Anywho, anybody else have some to share, and please feel free to comment on mine.

    I have prophetic dreams quite regularly. The first thing I do after them is visit dreammoods.com (and/or a variety of other dream sites) to help define certain key points of the dream, then interpret the entire dream. It's quite easy and accurate.

    Thanks for posting this thread; I tend to dig all the threads on RJ, but if I read one more about Aussiebum I'm gonna freak, but let's face it, Aussiebum is hot...
    Anyway, yeah, Iv had prophetic dreams on quite a few occassions; one in particular was when I was fifteen; I dreamed I was laying in the grass beside the road & a burning car accident.. Woke up freaked, with a wicked head ache. I decided to skip school, stay home, and watch Nirvana videos and Daria reruns on MTV. A little while later I heard the school bus slowing down at the bottom of my driveway (I lived outside of town by the lake) and then screeching;
    A gas truck coming up behind the bus wasn't paying attention & swerved into the bottom of the driveway to miss the bus, swerving back into the road, then ended up turned over on the bank of the road. I have no doubt that if I'd gone to school I would have been mowed down by the truck.
    Have had a bunch of similarly strange things, but I think we sometimes connect to things, people, and places, outside of our direct perception.

    Think of the billions of people who dream every night.

    Think of the billions of people who have had dreams concerning the death of loved ones.

    Consider the fact that eventually people--and sometimes unexpectedly--die.

    With billions of dreams, billions of mortal people, and the very human emotions involved with the death of loved ones... your situation is bound to happen to some people. I don't know about you, but I have had lots of dreams over the years about the deaths of loved ones.


    And your dream was not prophetic--your aunt died from organ failure (my sympathies). She did not turn into an eagle. Your dream could be metaphorical prophesy... but it requires YOU to be the interrupter of your dream.

    Anecdotal evidence is rarely sufficient concerning phenomenon like this... even though most people would like stuff like this to be true.

    I skimmed your original post. I must have missed this part. This paragraph is quite significant..... you'll find the most probable answer to your question in what you wrote.

    Think about it.

    Actually some, well... psychologists claim that considering the fact that unconscious mind is so powerful, based on what it 'sees' every day it can make a very precise prediction of future events.
    Since dreams (most commonly) are far from being literal, this kind of phenomenon can take place even more often than one would suspect. But nowadays many people pay little if no attention to dreams and think it's all 'goofy', crazy and irrelevant...
    Just a though...icon_wink.gif
    Also, the buzz about this was going on for far to long I think - must mean something. Apart from that, well, there can be no real scientific evidence, (at least I can't think of anything on the spot).

    Thank you conscienti1984 for your insight! I guess it doesn't matter where the dream came from, the message was the important thing.

    ...please, keep the dreams coming guys!

    Even if dreams aren't prophetic, as many skeptics will claim, they are a reflection of the mind. Whenever I'm in a troubling time in my life, my dreams tend to vent that frustration or fear so that I'm stronger when I awake.

    I have had plenty of prophetic dreams, although most of them turn into seemingly petty deja vu's of someone walking past, remembering seeing a certain poster in a dream, etc. I have had a few that truly affected me, and most of those lead me to my pagan roots.

    Even if the dreams don't foretell of any major incident and are simply just your mind venting or coping with reality, that just proves how important they are. I do dream interpretation for any of my friends who want it. I have a few books and I refer to websites constantly, but sometimes, you've just got to go with your gut and respond with intuition as you interpret dreams.

    Hope this helped! =)

    I have had a number of prophetic dreams, that could not possibly be explained by coincidence or other means. But I never know when they will happen, and I haven't had any for over the last 10 years.

    But when they happen they are exceptionally vivid, and I wake up with a profound sense that they are important. I write them down, and email them to friends so that I have "witnesses." And then within a few days they come true, exactly as I dreamt them.

    The most specific premonition I've had in a dream was about 10 years ago. I had a very vivid dream I ran into a good friend of mine from college. I went to work that morning and I told one of my coworkers that I had a dream about a close friend I haven't seen or heard from in over six years.

    After work I went to the usual health food store, and my friend from college of course was there!

    I recall this specific story because I have witnesses that this actually occurred since I told someone the dream before I ran into my college friend.

    Also guys, I dreamed the other night I was homeless and was placed in a hostel. At first it was in this big house with all these families and children living there, and I thought it was a mistake because I had to pay the system 450.00 month to live there. Then they told me it was a mistake and showed me over to where a hotel used to be and I thought well maybe I would get my own little apartment with a bathroom for the 450.00. But actually it was even worse and there wasn't even a door on the room, just a curtain.

    My unemployment benefits stopped a couple of weeks ago, just like for millions of people in the U.S. Right now I don't even know where my next meal is coming from, let alone be coherent and organized enough to continually job search. I have a part time job(which I've had throughout my entire "unemployment") but I don't have enough gas money to drive there tomorrow. It was either eat today or work tomorrow.

    I have two sisters that are very much aware of my issue. One is very well off and gave me money to get an updated license plate for my car. I used some of the money for food and gas but still had enough money to buy the plates. There was a title issue so the only option I had yesterday was to buy a temp plate for 20 bucks. So today my non-rich sister tells my rich sister I used the money instead on myself and now my rich sister is pissed off and will not lend me money until my next pay check. I'm pretty much screwed, all because I had to go to work yesterday and spend ten bucks on gas. But I only bought the gas ONLY after I made sure I got the plates updated.

    Ugh.....I just hope my dream doesn't become a reality.

    I played oracle one night when I dreamt that my aunt had a "friend" named Elizabeth come visit us.

    The next day our cousin was born (her daughter) and she was named Elizabeth.

    Let me give an example of my dreams:

    I had this exceptionally vivid dream, about having lunch with a gay friend. Nothing more, not an important event, just lunch. But it was so compelling that I emailed him and several friends.

    Then I forgot about it, and about 4 days later I ran into him in Seattle, nothing planned. And I said let's go into this indoor shopping mall, a large old converted brick building that may have once been a warehouse, with a number of trendy stores inside, so we could grab a bite to eat at one of the fast-food vendors. I had recalled a few being on the ground floor concourse from the single time I had walked through there previously.

    And he told me he'd heard there was a new Mexican restaurant upstairs that had just opened the day before, and maybe we should check it out, get some Grand Opening offers. So I said OK, and we went up to the second floor to find it, and indeed they were celebrating their opening.

    The host asked if we'd like to sit on their outside balcony, overlooking the street below, and we said sure, the weather being nice. He chose our table for us.

    We had just ordered when I heard a loud motorcycle on the street below, and looked over the edge to my left to see it whiz past. That's when I blurted out to my friend: "This is my dream I emailed you!"

    We were seated at a tall cocktail table, just like in my dream. It was made of wood planks with spaces between them, like an outdoor picnic table, again my dream. Likewise it was the first in a row of identical tables, all along a brick wall, that overlooked a street. And in my dream, a loud motorcycle had passed below us, that I saw to my left (just as I woke up, and the dream ended).

    To my right I had dreamt of an arched entryway, with open French doors, through which I could see an indoor bar. That feature was also before us in this restaurant, to my right, an identical image to my dream. And my dream also had us passing through an area of specialty stores on our way here, just as we had done moments before. I had just lived an exact & detailed replay of a dream I had 4 days earlier.

    Yet there was nothing earth-shattering about it, like in movies, no great disaster, no lives to save, nobody to warn. It was just us having lunch. But I had foreseen every step of it for about 15 minutes prior, and there is no way on Earth it could have been a coincidence or planned, by my friend or anyone else, all random acts.

    The restaurant hadn't opened until AFTER my dream. My friend could not have known to steer me there to match the dream. And even if he had, the host had seated us at that particular planked table, not him, of an unusual construction and providing the exact views I had dreamed. And how did he stage-manage the roaring motorcycle on the road below? No, this was no trick.

    To this day, some 15 years later, it makes me wonder about psychic phenomena. I have yet to have someone tell me a rational or scientific explanation for what I experienced.

    I very rarely dream, at all (yeah, I know we are supposed to dream all the time while in deep sleep, but I rarely recall doing so). Maybe that is prophetic: We came from nothing and we go back to nothing...The End

    I tend to think that dreams are an expression of what's in your heart, even if it's in the subconscious and I don't consciously think about it.

    As a UK citizen, I - thanks to Freddie Laker with his brilliant innovation of bringing cheap transatlantic flights within reach of the common man (as opposed to the elite few) in the mid-seventies - was one of the first of a generation to backpack solo across North America, both Canada and the USA, which I did twice, in 1977 and 1978 (see profile pics). Unfortunately, while hiking to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in 1978, my camera failed, and I was gutted to return home without an adequate photo record of the hike. So I resolved to return - one day.
    Back then I had a secure engineering job at a company making parts for aeroplanes, both military and civil. When I along with others were made redundant, my option was to start up a domestic handyman business, working as self-employed, something I have now done for the last thirty years.
    It was during the early 1990s, when my business was fully up and running, that I began to have dreams of being back in America. Not just one dream but quite a number of them! Sure enough, after 17 years, in 1995 I landed at New York's J.F.Kennedy Airport and about two weeks later I once again stood by the Colorado River at the bottom of the Canyon, this time with a fully functional camera.
    I still dream about the Canyon to this day. Would I be back there someday? (For the record, my wife HATE clifftops, she has no interest in the location). We have to wait and see.
    Or when I traveled down to Sicily in 1982, I stayed at this hotel in Siracusa.
    24 years later I had in mind to take my wife to the same hotel to celebrate our 7th Anniversary.
    I dreamed that we got off the train at a nearby station, and walked the street
    until we came to the hotel. The owners turned us away.
    When we actually got there, we found out that the owner recently died and the hotel closed down and the property was on the market. We were fortunate to find another hotel literally just across the road.
    By the way, for newer members on this site - yes, I am gay.

    Only once. It was such an unusual dream, with sights, sounds, and smells, as well as people dying -- I never had people die in any of my dreams before -- that I wrote an email to my friend telling him about it.

    I was living in Manhattan at the time. I sent this note on Sept 10 2001.

    Subject: dream


    Very strange dream last nite.

    Was alone in a very small sailboat (sunfish -- 2 person boat), in the middle of a big lake or ocean. At nite, of course. Weather started getting real rough, waves 10-20 feet. I knew it was going to get worse and that I wouldn't make it, and that lots of other, much bigger boats would not make it either.

    I jumped out of the boat and swam to this gigantic stone lighthouse that just happened to be nearby (???). Was like 100 feet high, and I climbed all the way to the top, then just sat there watching the roiling seas all around me getting worse and worse.

    Huge tankers and freighters started coming in from all directions towards the lighthouse that I was sitting on top of. They couldn't make it tho, as the waves got so huge that they capsized all these huge ships one by one. I counted them as they sank at various speeds, making all sorts of horrible ship death noises. I had predicted all of this tho, before I jumped out of my small boat. After about 30 ships went under, the weather subsided, and I climbed down to the base of the lighthouse, which was right at sea level.

    I realized as I climbed down that the sea was filled with floating dead bodies, some washed up on the lighthouse base. Thousands of dead people everwhere. I realized I would have to swim thru all the bodies to get to shore.

    End of dream. I was one of these incredibly real ones with not only sight, but sounds and smells.

    I frankly can't understand what the heck this is all about. I didn't recently watch any boating or water related movies or TV or books or anything. Also, nothing about this type of stuff in a conversation either. Very odd.

    I don't recall having dreams about the future. Most of mine are about people who have already passed on. Sometimes there are messages and sometimes there are not.

    Ive never had them, but the native peoples of South and Central America believe that dreams give messages.... and they are usually followed.... if members of jungle tribes have moved to another country, when they dream of a death of a loved one, they usually call back to make sure and from my understanding its usually correct

    knightrider2009 saidAlso, once (I was even younger, maybe 8 or 10 years old) I was lying in my bed, trying to fall asleep and I was thinking I'm really glad our family is ok, everybody is kinda happy and healthy, that's just great... and I felt very peacefully and safe. The next thing I know, as soon as I wake up and me and my bro come to the kitchen to have breakfast, I hear phone ringing... My mom goes to the living room and I hear her pick the phone. It was either my aunt (her sister-in-law) or my cousin, calling that our uncle (my mom's brother) passed away during the night. It was either a heart attack or a stroke, I don't remember. Anyways he passed away in his sleep.

    I didn't really realize at that point what the hell was that all about but when I thought about it some time later, I was thinking AM I SOME SORT OF A FREAK? WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT!

    To this day, whenever I remember that day, that situation, it disturbs me icon_sad.gif

    i think that your dream was your uncle coming to reassure you that you are loved and are safe. like he was cheering you up before the bad news hit...like it would help you feel better about the situation.

    i do have one dream that seems to be a requiring one for me. meaning ive had the same dream since i was a child!!
    its always the same situation....somthing bad has happened to the earth, ie natural disaster, evil beings etc!! now during these horrible events people start to come to me. i seem to always be leading people out of danger. but in my dreams im not myself im a slightly older verison of myself. i also feel everything in my dreams...i cant feel pain, i smell things like fire and death. most nights after these dreams i wake up crying covered in sweat. ive always been able to feel my dreams but these dreams in praticular have been taking there toll on me.

    anyone got an idea of what these mean??
    im good at interpurting others dreams just cant seem to understand my own!!

    A few days ago I dreamt that I was on a plane and it started plummeting and so all the emergency procedures activated.

    I fly out to New South Wales on Sunday, which kind of has me worried after having such a dream. I would generally not believe in this sort of nonsense but I can help wondering if the plane I will be boarding might be dodgy.

    hmm let me try and crack this one....lol

    ok if i had to guess i would say its a dream based on your own fears of flying and what has happened with flying over the past 10years!! i think that the part of your dream were the emerg. stuff comes out and is working, is very important i think its a way of letting you know that you will be ok and nothing drastic is gonna happen. its also a classic dream of falling we all have them, it just your going on a plane so your subconcious is using what is familiar to you. i think thats why the emerg. stuff comes out to let you know that your gonna be fine. your have protection!!
