Psychic Dreams! When a Dream Becomes a Vision

"To sleep, perchance to dream-ay, there's the rub."

From Hamlet, William Shakespeare

Everybody dreams!  And most of us have had intuitive or psychic dreams. Ancient man recorded his visions on the walls of caves. In today’s world, many of us share the experience online.

A normal dream typically occurs during the REM (rapid eye movement) phase of sleep. This is the deepest sleep in the cycle. When we are asleep the unconscious rules! But dreams, visions and premonitions can happen, at other times, too.

Most of the time our dreams have no meaning. They are just a random string of thoughts, which we may not even remember. There are also powerful psychic dreams, where future events are given to us while we sleep.

You may dream that you will see an old friend…and the next day, out of the blue, they knock on your door. Dreams can tell us of good fortune or the loss of someone we love. Big dreams and little dreams come true every day.  It’s important to understand the nature of our dreams, because intuition is linked to every life.

In 1912, the Titanic sunk. The huge ship went down with hundreds of souls still on board. Both before and after the tragedy, people were reporting psychic dreams that foretold the event. Some of these premonitions were validated by date.  Although no one was able to stop the disaster, some people knew it would happen.

In 1962, when astrologer/psychic, Jeanne Dixon, predicted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, no one really listened until after it happened. At the turn of the millennium, starting in the year 2000, there are hundreds of reported visions of the twin tower tragedy in New York.

It’s clear that sometimes, a dream is more than just a normal dream.

We can’t always change the things we see. But more often, when the sixth sense is activated, there is a reason for it. Some dreams give us advanced warnings to either avoid danger or prepare for difficult events. Sometimes we are given advanced knowledge in able to find a solution to a problem.  

Every time we sleep, our unconscious is set free from the physical world and enters a different, more timeless dimension. We are all connected at a soul level and dreams, both individual and shared ones, are the DNA of the soul.

Psychic premonitions (both sleeping and awake) have been happening since the dawn of time. Every civilization has recorded incidents. In the realm of the unconscious, we are all psychic beings.

There are as many types of dreams, as there are dreamers. An understanding of the most common “foretelling” dreams may help you sleep better at night.

Soul Walking:    When you “tune in” to a person or a real-life event in an attempt to divine the future it is almost like an out-of-body experience.  Sometimes the experience is so real that you are not surprised to discover that the event actually did take place.  Soul walking, while in a dream-like state is more common than you think. The dreamer can actually visit another physical location and hear and see everything that is going on.

Premonitions:   Predicting future events can be a little scary, especially if the dreams are of events like the Titanic or 9-11.  In the case of tragic premonitions, they might be better called nightmares.  Sometimes this phenomenon takes the form of messages from spirits or people that have passed.

At any rate, intuition that is activated while someone is sleeping doesn’t always have to be about impending doom, death or tragedies.   

The strange thing about precognition dreams is that they often reoccur.  It may be a sign of a precognition dream if you have it three times.

Telepathic Dreams:   Images, thoughts and feelings transmitted from person-to-person are sometimes sent through dreams. Telepathic dreams are best described as, one person “tapping” on another.

In almost every case, only those that are very close emotionally (linked souls) that are able to send images and emotions to another.

Dreams that are manifested by telepathy are often transmitted by twins or soulmates. This type of high level communications is multi-dimensional.  A non-verbal language of images and thoughts most often connects, when one of the two is sleeping.

 One person “taps” on another through a focused projection of energy. The dream can feel so real that the person that is receiving the “tap” my physically feel it.

Keep in mind, that sometimes these dreams are intentionally sent.  On other occasions, there is no conscious effort involved.

Insightful Dreams: This is where a person gains knowledge far beyond their own lifetime. Visionaries and spiritual leaders often gain insights in their dreams that are greater than the wisdom of the current world.

 Nostradamus is said to have received great insight of events, that would happen centuries after his death.

Shared Dreams: When the same dream is shared by two or more people, it is usually a vision of things to come. Sometimes precognition dreams can be shared across a large number of people.

When you wake up from a shared dream, it can leave you anxious and confused. When many people share one dream, it can drive you to connect with the other dreamers. A shared dream (especially a reoccurring one) can cause disruptions in the sleep patterns.  It may be difficult to sleep for fear of having the dream again.

Lucid or Waking Dreams:  Waking dreams are different in many respects. Often the person may be wide awake when suddenly they experience a vision. These dreams may involve a trance-like state.

Waking dreams can be startling. They definitely prompt an emotional response.

Dream interpretation is an art and a science. There are common symbols and meanings in many dreams. For instance; who hasn’t had a fear of falling. Dream journals are an excellent way to learn what your dreams mean.

Through psychic dreams, we can sometimes find out about events that are yet to come. The irony is that the only way to be certain if your dream is a true foretelling of the future, is to wait and see if it comes true.

    I have the waking dreams often and most of them involve me getting chased by people in black, I was with my freind at a book store and I had one of the vision type things and it was about a book then after we walked through the next isle I saw the book. I had never seen this book in my life and I could tell her the whole plot correctly. What does the chasing dream mean?

      I have been having dreams that are warnings and some that have come true.  I am glad I am not the only one.  however your dream of being chased by something in black first thought that came to me was that your life is in need of a desperate change you need to make.  it is haunting you, it maybe something you are afraid to change, but it knows it must be made and maybe once the thought of this changed followed you, but now it is chasing you because it really needs to happen and you have to let go of what ever fear you have.

      Sometimes the thing we fear the most is the thing we have to do to be happy.

      just my thought…I have been a dreamer for 40 plus years and I am also a receiver of messages and something prompted me to send this to you.

    I experience all of these forms of dreaming. In fact, I've come to somewhat master them. I'm very proud to say this since I am only 22 now. I Have a vast amount of time to grow more so. I yearn to grow my soul and total spiritualism!

      Since you are a master at these dream types, can I ask you something? I just had a dream that felt like it would come true, but it incredibly linked to my fear. Should I believe in the dream or not? If you need details just contact me.

    One dream I had myself made me very worried when I woke up. I was extremely scared that a dream could represent something really bad. If ever a dream was a premonition this was it! I tried to decode the dream. I linked the dream with one person – and this woman's two sons also appeared in the dream. By the end of that day I was surprised that the day had passed without incident. But just at that time the person I linked the dream with died in a car accident. The dream featured a car accident which was identical. I was absolutely convinced beforehand that this dream was significant. So the premonition was quite astonishing. It certainly convinced me.

      Hi Jocelyn, there’s nothing you can actually do, apart from asking your boyfriend to take extra care. We all dream about losing people and your dream is nothing more than a horrible nightmare. I dreamed when I was a little girl that my mother had died in her twenties – she’s still going strong at almost 80. Your boyfriend will be fine {hugs}

  1. I’ve been having a lot of visions from my dreams while I’m awake lately. Can someone please help?

    I would call it de-ja-vu but you’re not precise on the duration. How long do these visions last? Fleeting or minutes? Try these two sites, they might help you figure out which you are having. At least this way you’ll know better what you’re experien…
