Precognitive Dreams And How to RecognizeThem
Precognition is having a psychic vision, sense, knowing, or dream about a person, place, or thing, before it actually happens.
Since ancient times, the belief in dreams as a form of precognition has been popular. Dreams were seen as a way through which entities in the Spirit World communicated with humans.
This is why in ancient times there was a strong paranormal element as far as dreams were concerned. They were supposed to provide information about things that were far away from the one dreaming, as well as provide knowledge about the future.
However, that idea doesn’t hold true all the time, because not all dreams are precognitive.
Are All Dreams Precognitive?
It’s now commonly understood not all dreams have an ESP (extra-sensory perception) element to them.
Most dreams are simply the results of how your mind is processing the experiences you had while you were awake. This is the reason some dreams seem to be surreal. In the dream state, logic often doesn’t hold because your thoughts are being filtered by your mind. Yet, that doesn’t mean there is no such thing as a precognitive dream.
It’s just that it can be puzzling, or even difficult for some, to understand which of their dreams are simply ordinary dreams, and which dreams are actually moments of precognition happening in the dream state.
Some people believe there are nights when they don’t dream, believing they had such an exhausting day, that they are too tired to even dream. However, research shows that everyone dreams.
Clearly then, dreams can serve several purposes. Two of the chief purposes are to help us process our experiences, and to allow us to receive messages from the Spirit World.
Are Your Dreams Precognitive or Not?
During a psychic reading, a client asked me what his dreams meant. He explained to me how the kind of dreams he had were bothering him, even during his waking hours.
He told me he kept dreaming of alligators that were chasing him through the mud in a swamp. And when he would wake up, even though the dream in itself seemed scary, he wasn’t scared at all. In fact, he woke with a sense of peace because he was always able to evade the alligators, even though they moved very fast.
However, even with such a pleasant outcome, he was still deeply worried. He said that he was scared his dream was a premonition of some kind.
I was curious about this, and asked him what he meant.
He said he didn’t want to have a “death by alligator” experience in the future. His worry was based on what some of his relatives had told him. They had told him what happens in dreams are often symbolic of what would happen in real life.
In other words, he believed there could come a time when he would be in a swamp, alligators would chase him, they’d catch him, and it would be the end of him.
To set his mind and emotions at ease, I explained that dreams are rarely literal.
In fact, even dreams about the most ordinary things in life that are partnered with an unusual element, such as brushing your teeth with coal, do not really need to be seen as an actual event that will happen.
As I mentioned earlier, while in the dream state, your mind is busy processing your thoughts and experiences.
In my client’s case, he did not have any previous experience with alligators at all, but as we talked, it became clear why he often had dreams about them.
It was because in his place of work, he had supervisors whom he felt were always “going after him” about one thing or another. He intensely believed and felt they wanted to bring him down, so that he would simply resign out of desperation.
Fortunately, he had been able to move past his bad experiences with his supervisors and concentrate on working hard. As a result, their company had rewarded him in the form of bonuses and additional paid leave.
In the end, he was able to understand that in his dream, his mind turned his supervisors into alligators, since both were fierce, and both were after him.
He was so relieved it wasn’t a precognitive dream, after all.
It was clear to me his dreams were not giving him a peek into a dangerous future event that he would be involved in, because his dreams didn’t have the signs of precognitive dreams.
Signs of a Precognitive Dream
For a dream to be considered precognitive, several signs need to be present.
Not all of these signs need to be present at once, but if at least two of these are, then your dream could be a precognition of something that is going to happen.
- Your dream is about others. Your dream shows you what is happening to them or what will happen to them.A precognitive dream is rarely about you.
- Your dream agitates you as you are sleeping, and even after waking up. You find it hard to distract your mind. When awake, your thoughts keep going back to your dream.
- You distinctly remember sensory elements of your dream. For example, if you heard a voice saying something clearly in your dream, when you awake, you will still hear that voice in your head. Or the colors you saw in your dream are as vivid while dreaming, and when you are awake.
- The details of your dream stand out in your mind. Unlike normal or regular dreams, the details of precognitive dreams remain in stark recall.
- There is a sense of urgency associated with the dream. This feeling of urgency is something that you start to experience immediately after waking up.
Should You Be Scared of Your Precognitive Dreams?
Most people tend to be unnerved by a precognitive dream, especially if it involves bad news.
For example, if someone were to dream about an accident involving an officemate, then the sense of unease would be extremely strong. So strong, in fact, that the dreamer may choose to repress or push the dream down in their mind, until they forgot all about it, only to remember it again when the dream actually happens, sometime in the future.
There is no need to be scared of your precognitive dreams.
Instead, you should be thankful for them, because the Spirit World has given you a chance to be of help to others.
While you shouldn’t ignore your precognitive dreams, there is no need to be scared of them either, even if they involve some negativity.
If you pay attention to your precognition, and act on it appropriately, you will be thankful that you did.
