Understanding Prophetic Dreams

What Are Prophetic Dreams?

A dreams that foretells of a future event is considered prophetic. In your sleep, you may see snippets of a future occurrence, with a strong feeling that something bad is about to take place. Sometimes, you will “experience” in your dream what is about to happen (such as choking in black smoke, or being in the midst of people running in fear).

How Do You Know If You’ve Had A Prophetic Dream?

The thing about this type of dream is, usually you won’t know if it’s prophetic until the event has taken place – only then will you be able to put the pieces together and realize that what you envisioned in your sleep was a preview of what was about to take place.

The only way to know for sure if a dream is prophetic or not is by being highly familiar with your dreams. You need to keep a dream journal, and intimately know the typical “texture”, sound, and visual elements of your dreams. This way, you can easily tell if a particular night time experience stands out from among the rest.

Here are some signs to watch out for when a dream will be prophetic:

• Usually, a prophetic dream is intense, and can arouse you to a state of emotional urgency.
• You may not understand what your dream means, but it still moves you to a state of unease.
• Also, your premonitions will rarely be personal, but they will be about an event that involves others.
• It’s usually very strong, and the sensations it evokes stay with you long after you’ve awakened.

Types of Prophetic Dreams

It’s also good to know that prophecy in dreams may come to you in different ways.

Through Apparitions

Your spirit guide, angel, or a deceased loved one, may appear to you in a dream and tell you of what is about to happen. This may come as a direct message, or as a message that you need to decipher.

Through Clairvoyance

You may witness the event, as though it’s happening before your eyes. You may see the faces of people, of buildings and objects, and of the event unfolding.

Through Clairaudience

You may hear voices and sounds that are so clear, it’s as though they are around you.

Through Clairempathy

You may sense the fear, dread, anguish, and other emotions that the people in your dream are feeling. You may also sense the energy in the location of the event, which is usually one of collective suffering and distress.

You may also have a combination of the above, including smelling smoke, which makes the dream more vivid and real. Usually, when danger that is about to take place involves a lot of people, you will find that many individuals experience having similar dreams in approximately the same time period.

Always remember, however, that the events in your dream may resemble a future event very closely, or they may only be symbolic of what’s to come.

What To Do When You Have A Prophetic Dream

First of all, you need to stay calm and not panic. Remember that the future is not set in stone, and even if your dream tells of an upcoming event in the future, it can still change.

It’s always a good idea to ask for professional advice on the meaning of your dreams. A psychic can clarify your visions, and provide you with deeper understanding on what your dream may really mean.

    This was a good one. I had a dream of my best friend that got into a bad argument with me a few months back. He told me that I need to be patient and that he is doing things on the side to make money. He said he will be writing to me soon and not to worry. I held his face and kissed him he smiled and disappeared. It felt really real like he was there. The environment was happy and positive.

  5. Hi
    I wanted to know what my dream was about my father has been dead for almost 4 years on March 6 2016 I had a dream where I was in a catholic school and thier were nuns and I was in line waiting to go back inside I was looking for my friend sueraine ok and I then see one of the nuns she too was wondering where she was my deceased father comes up to me and says sueraine wont be in class bc shes been raped and has to go live with a coworker and they took her out of school ok
    He hands me a soap bar of lever 2000 with sueraine name carved into it with the lever 2000 of course below that so to this day I cant understand why my dad would say that bc in the past hes says things that have actual meaning in other lives like a riddle but I feel it is only in regards to her bc her name is carved out so am I being told something important or not I have been seeing things she likes latley sunflowers husky dogs voilins etc we live far apart from ea other so am I being lead ti her bc of this or not?

  6. Crystal Osmundson says:

    Hi, in regards to your dream, the soap may mean she needs a cleansing or emotionally soiled. Rape isn’t necessarily physical. It could be raped of money, power, love ect. Also when you notice her favorite things, she must be thinking strongly about you. Her thoughts are so powerful, you are seeing things she likes as a way to say, “hey, im thinking about you”. Ask her questions about herself. Ask her questions about the dream but in a metaphorical way. You might be surprised.

    I have been having dreams that continue all night… Even when I get up to go to the restroom and go back to bed it resumes when I fall back to sleep. They are about different scenarios of disasters. I am not one to dream things like this. I know I am there, but not if that makes any sense. I am now worried because this is not at all normal for me. I am a happy go lucky person and try to look to the positive. I do believe that the shft will happen, but I do not dwell on it. Do you think this is something to give attention to? Again very detailed dreams and it feels like it is stuff I am suppose to learn from like a download. Thank you for your help

    I keep having a dream that my friend thomas had called my to his house only to find that he had commit suicide and I was too late to save him, though in the dream doctors were able to save after 2 and a half minutes, it had felt so real that it had seemed that I had actually held the knife in my hands and was hugged by my dad. I had smelt the usual cigarette smoke that is in his house, and I had felt the tears roll down my cheeks. I heard his brother talking saying ”if only he knew” his mother was crying, and his dad was nowhere to be seen. I remember going to the hospital and holding thomas’s hand as he lay there unconscious and barely alive. In reality thomas is depressed and he doesn’t like to talk about why he is, as far as I know I’m the only one who knows a lot about him out of his friends. Can you please clarify what this dream means for me, I have had this dream for 3 weeks in a row.

    I am pretty confident that I had a dream about the world ending. Me, some of my christian friends and for some reason my pastor were all gathered at a cul de sac, only we were older looking. I remember vividly two of them throwing a bright red frisbee. It was evening and the sun was setting. This dream was different from ones I normally have… my dreams normally move sluggishly, like a bad stop motion animation but this one was fluid. After awhile, the sky began to get dark… not like nightfall but a harsh crimson color and people began marching down the street. A fog moved in, kind of like the curtain being drawn between a scene change at a play, then all my friends and my pastor were lined up in front of who I assumed was some sort of executioner. I don’t remember the next part, which I am thankful for… I would rather not witness my friends die… but that same fog moved in. When I regained my memory again, I was in a large circular room with a tube of water in it. A large writhing creature was in it. It was grayish blue in color with a tail that had 4 fins and tentacles. It was flailing wildly. The room was light gray and gold and the roof domed upwards. A man wearing what looked like a roman toga stood beside me, looking up at the creature (which I googled later and learned it was or was something like the leviathan) with something like distaste… like it had done the man wrong or was a bad thing to begin with. He glanced down at me, revealing brown hair and a beard and smiled. Then I drifted into a peaceful sleep with a certain peace laid upon me. In the christian bible, the leviathan was a demon and I am half sure I was witnessing it’s judging. Did I just have a prophetic dream???

    I had a dream where I was alone on a strange planet. It felt far in the future, but not super far. The words 1,000 years and Jupiter were being whispered. I looked up and saw the most beautiful night sky along with the Milky Way “band” or “arc” streaking through it. I felt scared and alone, but it was too amazing to feel too afraid. I was walking and the gravity felt slightly lighter than earth’s. Then it began getting brighter. I then saw 3 bright, red, luminous moons and I got a weird feeling. They were exactly the same size and in perfect conjunction. I saw that the surface of the planet was rocky. And the further I walked the hotter it got and suddenly the planet seemed to lurch and I was thrown in the air. I saw a quick scene of a burning white star and then I blacked out. I think I was vaporized by the 3 red stars.
    The next night I had a dream that started with a Roman clock. There were two names of what seemed like the names of two stars or planets. The clock showed the times 6:00 and 9:30. The names lined up with the hands of the clock. The clock seemed to represent that the two objects (stars or planets) were in conjunction with one another. I also got the feeling that the hour hand represented a month and the minute hand represented the date. Then the dream ended.

    When I was a toddler, my mom had a dream that a snake slithered out of the closet and into my crib and constricted around my neck and killed me. Freaking out about this, she got my grandfather to come over and just poke around in the closet. He found a 6 foot rat snake. I remember this happening, I was a toddler and was standing on my mom’s bed when my Grandfather shot the snake in the closet. (yes he shot it in the house) I have earlier memories too, my earliest putting me at about 6 months old, laying on my back on my parent’s bed. My mom was playing peekaboo and tickling me saying “I’m gonna…Get him! Get him! Get him! Get him!” I was so excited and kicking my arms and legs and laughing. I remember other things but that is my oldest that I know of. Anyways, a couple years ago, I had a dream that myself, my step brother, and one of our best friends got jumped in the friend’s front yard; when he was throwing a party. It was 20 or so black guys against us 3. After a long fight, I got hit really hard from behind and stumbled. Then I got pulled inside the house and into safety. Inside, I talked to people for a few minutes, but then I got weak and instantly woke up. When I was awake, I was worried because I felt like that last cheap strike in the dream killed me. Then as the days passed, I felt that maybe I didn’t die, but that whatever injury I sustained would stay with me for life, and potentially be the cause of my eventual death. Two weeks later, the dream actually happened. And the point of that last strike from behind, the one that rocked me, was where Deja Vu began and and I’ve never had such a long Deja Vu before or since. It lasted a few minutes after the fight ended. And when we were talking about the fight, after a couple minutes, my adrenaline crashed and I fell. And that is the point where I woke up in the dream, it was adrenaline crash IRL. I realized that I had dreamt it all and didn’t die like I was worried about in my dream but my jaw was very sore for a while and now, sometimes I can click or pop it. Sometimes it gets tight and hurts. I fear that if society were to ever collapse or something were to happen to where I couldn’t go to a hospital, I’m worried that my jaw may eventually lock up, ultimately resulting in my death from starvation. Which would be pretty ironic because I’m a fat guy who eats too much anyway. Probably what I deserve from being a glutton. (I’m trying to change on that level) I recently had another dream where I was at a wedding and had previously met my Fiancee’s friend’s boyfriend and he told me he was leaving and that it was nice to meet me, only for him to leave the wedding and get in a wreck and die. Well part of that dream happened IRL, this past weekend. I didn’t remember anything until he came up to me and said “nice to meet you” and all that. It was then where my Deja Vu came and I remembered the rest of the dream. I had dreamt everything correctly, the inside of the venue in which i’d never seen, what we were wearing, and the random place I sat in 5 minutes prior. I got up, couldn’t find him (and didn’t know what I’d have said anyway) but I found his GF and told her to tell him to drive safe. She did. Everyone got home safely and nobody died. I know that none of what I typed out is normal. I’ve always been different. Do me and my mom have a special gene or something? It seems hereditary. But maybe not. We are Christian and know that God can do all things. Does this mean anything? I’m not trying to be special, these are 100% truths and I’m just trying to figure out why these things have happened. Thanks
