How Dreams Can Predict The Future
Question from a reader:
Yes, dreams can predict the future, although most of the time it’s not in the way most people assume. In some instances, you may have a dream and then see that event occur in real life in exactly the same way that it happened in your dream. This is what most people think of when they think about dreams predicting the future and it’s a rare occurrence for the most part.
“Can dreams predict the future?”
Dreams can often give indicators of future events in a less literal way, though, and a lot of people miss the cues because they don’t know what to look for or how to identify what they’re being shown. Here’s a few examples:
When I was in college, I dreamed that my ex boyfriend left his fiancee at the alter and asked me to marry him instead. A month or so later, they broke off their engagement and he asked me out on a date. As you can see, this wasn’t exactly what occurred in the dream, but the general theme was correct.
A few years ago, while I was sleeping on a flight to Europe, I was in the middle of a dream when the “volume” on the dream was completely turned off and a voice came in over the top (while the imagery from the original dream was still happening, almost like an emergency broadcast) and said, “Listen! Brother… car accident.”
I was completely freaked out the rest of the trip, but nothing happened. Six months later, that dream randomly popped into my head and I thought, “Well I guess it was nothing.” A two days later, my brother walked away from a head-on collision with barely a scratch on him.
Many dreams can show you, generally speaking, what will happen for you if you follow certain guidance that you’re being given within them. These things will show up symbolically and sometimes literally, or a mixture of the two.
