Can dreams really see into the future?
Is this where "deja vu" comes from? True or false and why...
Yes. mine certainly do. I've learned to listen closely to my dreams, and then, as something starts to happen, I can say, "I saw this coming and I know how to handle it." It's a very practical skill, actually, and one that I believe we all share.
I agree with Sidkemp on this one too! I too have experienced dreams that later became a "aha" moment and worth heeding to. But even more I think our spirit is dna of our ancestor's spirit and we have stored in memory their experiences of long ago!
Yes, dreamt about a job before even applying for it. Just a split second deja vu that saved injuring myself.
Yes. last night I dreamt I would be answering this exact question on HubPages.
There is a difference between dreams and soul travel.
Those deja vu normally means a person had done soul travel. I have studied the topic on soul travel and it is interesting. When one is asleep, the timing of light sleep - deep sleep - dream - soul travel - deep sleep - light sleep and then awake.
The timeline of soul travel is usually at 2 - 4 am if you sleep at around 10 pm.
It is indeed possible; yet not all, well for that matter not very many. In my experience it is a particular "type of dream" that is significantly different then most dreams...
I say no, because the future, as it hasn't happened yet, is never reliably "knowable". The attempt can be made to predict it, and the level of precision will be based on the quality and amount of information already known.
If we could predict the future, we'd have a choice: to comply, or alter it. If we comply, then what is measured is obedience and submission to a particular fate. If we choose to alter it, by deviating from the prediction in even the slightest way, then the prediction will have been wrong.
Thus, the future is unknowable, and our compliance with any prediction will always be a matter of will, free or not.
My answer is: Sometimes. We have all types of dreams it seems. Some point out our problems, others point towards how to overcome those problems. Some seem non-sensical And some do indicate the future.
I've had a dream which presented itself in two distrinct parts. Both parts of the dream came true, around six months apart - proving to me this was not just a deja vu experience (what some psychologists refer to as an 'overlapse of the mind,' where the subconsicious picks up a message of an outward reality before the conscious mind does)
I also think that when we are asleep we are actually 'living' as far as our attention is concerned in another dimension, returning fully into our physicality upon awaking. I have reasons for believing this but won't go into them here.
Dreams are the way you sort out the past and un-clutter your brain. When you awake, you may choose to remember your dream as a possible future. If you are inspired by your dreams then good luck. If you are concerned then by all means take precautions. Just remember though, if a million people dream about the lottery or a car crash then some of them will think their dreams have come true.
There is at least one exception to your rule. There exists a type of dream that does indeed appear to warn or disclose an event that has not yet happened...
If you have such dreams connorj, then you are most fortunate. I am speaking from my own experience. I do find that with a good nights sleep however, that I am much better prepared for future encounters.
