Precognitive dreaming: The gift of foresight



Precognition is knowledge of a future event or situation, especially by extrasensory means. People having these dreams would be dreaming of events yet to come to fruition, action for action, word for word. Sometimes these events will come to light in a few days, sometimes not for years at a time. Most of these dreams seem to be about normal, ordinary mundane topics, not the dramatic life changing events people may expect.

Some theories suggest that some of these precognitive dreams may just be the body and mind trying to subconsciously tell you something.  An example would be a woman dreaming she was pregnant before she eventually took a test to reveal the fact that she indeed was pregnant.  This case the woman’s body communicated to tell she was pregnant before any tests could confirm, or before she started to show.

Psychologists have been trying to determine whether precognitive dreaming exists or is a byproduct of the minds tendency to find patterns. Some suggest the mind will try to find “meaningful patterns in meaningless noise.” This explains why people see shapes in clouds and faces on Mars. Some also claim that some of these dreams have only been right by chance, not because the person saw it in a dream.

Parapsychologists argue that precognitive dreaming is much more than the body trying to communicate, or coincidence, this phenomena is real a version of clairvoyance. There are many claims of precognition where the dreamer could not have known any of the facts outside of the dream, and that there are too many claims for it to be just coincidence. There is a theory that these dreams may be a byproduct of unreleased psychokinesis by those who gifts go unused.
The fact is there is no explanation for precognitive dreaming, but research is ongoing by believers and nonbelievers alike. For those lucky enough to receive these visions, keep practicing, and keep dreaming.

Anyone have precognitive dreams; please feel free to leave your stories in the comments

  1. I used to be a professional fundraiser and had a dream that I had got a 200$ donation at a gas station. 2 weeks go by and the vibes I get from the air and setting seemed so familiar. I was with a coworker that day and told him that I had a dream that a middle aged blonde lady wearing black professional clothing was going to donate 200$. He laughed about it, and I run to this car at the end of a gas pump and bring her to the table we had set up and talked this same lady into donating 200$. I didn't mention to her that I had known this was going to happen until after we took the transaction. My coworker was shocked that I was telling the truth. Dreams like this happen often to me often. Another time I had told my buddy and I were going to Wal-Mart and i had a weird feeling, I told my buddy that I think we're going to see Natasha there (this girl we barley knew) he blows off my comment. In the dream she was covered in cow shit, but I didn't tell my buddy this because I didnt want to sound like a dumbass. Sure enough we saw her at Wal-Mart right after she got done doing FFA for our high school. Those were my only deja vu moments I actually predicted
