Since ancient times, dreaming was understood as entering into another world. In this world, our logical mind was a rest and another part of our brain takes over and enchants us to experience all sorts of things. Some people compare dreaming to an early state of visioning, in which we are able to receive information that is not accessible to us in our normal state of consciousness.
Being able to foresee an unfortunate fact of life like death, disasters, or illness through a dream is very common. Anyone may dream of something good or bad happening to someone or themselves. Do dreams serve as a premonition? Or is a dream just a state of mind in which we are dealing with the demands that our everyday life puts on us?
What is a premonition?
Before we proceed in answering the question, let me first give you the definition of premonition and dreams. Based on the dictionary meaning a premonition is a presentiment of the future; or a warning in advance while a dream is a series of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations occurring involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.’ As you can see, those two are totally different aspects, but both are induced by a change of consciousness.
I heard of a few people who dreamt something terrible would be happening and never did. Maybe those people were just dealing with their worries or fears in the dream state.
If you look in history books, you will find a lot of spiritual teachers, and seers who speak about visions and how they pre-told the future.
What does make those people different than others?
What is a dream?
We all know that dreams do play a role in our daily lives. The majority of people pay little attention to dreams. Dreams can help us solve our daily problems and see things from a different perspective. Whenever we are dreaming, we can be who or what we want to be, regardless of the fact that in real life, sometimes it cannot be. Dreams have their interpretation. For example, dreaming about loose, rotten, or missing teeth indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death. In other traditions, the falling out of a tooth indicates unexpected money.
As you can see, it’s not only the dream experience that changes from one person to the next but furthermore, so does their interpretations.
Starting a dream journal
The best way to track your dreams and find out if they are premonitions is by starting a dream journal. This way, you can write down the things you still remember from the night before every morning and find out if some of what you saw in a dream has become a reality. Another way to learn about dreams and their meaning could be to check the explanation and symbolism in a Dream Dictionary.
However, there are so many so-called “Dream books” on the market that I personally would find it rather difficult to settle for only one meaning. For this reason, I suggest you sit down and meditate on the symbols or meaning of your dream. This way, you are not only getting closer to its real meaning, as you only can find this out by yourself. But you also, at the same time, allow yourself to open your mind so one day, visioning might become a reality.
Premonitions and disaster.
There is a whole myth about premonitions and disaster predictions. Of course, a premonition can be a warning of some kind however it can also be a pinpointing in the right direction or literally show you what is going to happen in the future, which we call “Higher Clairvoyance”. This is a form of clairvoyance not a lot of people possess.
Now, what about premonitions? As defined earlier, it may be a warning in advance. Many people have had premonitions in different types of situations. When we say premonition, it is conveyed through dreams. A certain foreboding of what will happen in the near future, but in a vague sense. Many cases of premonitions are documented before a disaster, such as when the Titanic sank in 1912. There were over fifty counts of recorded premonitions before the event. Some of the passengers who had a premonition canceled their tickets before riding the Titanic and were saved from the horrible disaster that ended up taking place.
My personal premonition
In 1995 I had a very vivid dream, and at that time, I did not know it was a premonition. This dream was so intense that I struggled to comprehend it for quite a while.
However, I knew that it was not only a dream but much more. I was 11 years old then, so I did not know about premonitions or dreams and their meaning.
Nevertheless, it triggered something inside me that I knew I had to find out about its meaning. It took me 15 years, reading 100s of books, traveling all around the world for years, and seeking out spiritual teachers, priests, monks, and others who were open to a more diverse approach. Many times I thought that I was crazy or had lost my mind. But this tiny voice inside of me kept pushing and looking for the truth.
The truth revealed
When I was 26, I finally found the answers to my dream and realized that it was a premonition for me to work at the College for Psychic Studies (Arthur Findlay College) in England, which I did for over ten years. Here I finally learned about my psychic abilities and fully developed my potential. To share my personal story and what I learned along the path – I wrote a book about it.
“UNLOCKING PSYCHIC POTENTIAL – Shining a light on who you really are.”
Since then, I have never ever doubted premonitions again, and I studied other mediums, seers, and visionaries from all over the world who had similar experiences.
Do dreams serve as a premonition?
Well, it depends on the dream itself. If a person dreams about the whole scenario of an event, it can or may happen in the future. Yet, in another view, it can be just a dream that she had but has a different significant meaning. Unfortunately, a dream can serve as a premonition yet, at the same time, it also cannot be. This is why starting a dream journal could be something really helpful to track your dreams and find out if they are premonitions.
When is a dream a premonition?
We could say that a dream served as a premonition when the dream itself foretold something that could happen in real life. But, if your dream was something out of grandiose anticipation of what you have been thinking of, it may be just from your subconscious mind.
My answer to the question: Do dreams serve as a premonition?
‘It depends. Whether the dream you had has something to do with what could happen or, instead, maybe just the subconscious mind revealed through a dream can be hard to decipher. At the end of the day, when you are interpreting your dreams, you must tap into your intuition and listen closely to what it has to say.
Develop your psychic abilities
If you start developing your psychic potential, you might also gain the ability to have visions, premonitions, or other helpful abilities that allow you to see what is yet to come. This can be a rather exciting or overwhelming experience and will depend on your teacher’s quality. So many people are psychically gifted and don’t even have a clue. I didn’t even know what psychic abilities were till I was 26.
Deep down, I always knew.
However, I always knew that I was different and had more intense experiences than others. Being able to see what other people can’t be a gift and a curse and depends on the teachings you receive. In the end, you will need to learn to develop and control your abilities by will. This way, they can serve you, and you can use them in a practical and thoughtful way.
Using my gift to serve others
I have used my gift as a seer for years to do Readings for people from all over the world. To date, I have done more than 600 Readings. Because I am also trained in astrology, I prefer to use my Astrology Tarot Cards to offer guidance to people who seek my help. Furthermore, this allows me to make things visible that those people could not see before.
Reading other people’s energy has been very challenging for years, as I had to learn to do it in a way that does not drain me of energy. Today, I am very confident in what I do, and my clients’ testimonials show me that I have found my purpose.
Maybe there is some psychic potential inside of you, too; you just need to figure out how to use it. An astrology Tarot Card Reading could help you to gain more clarity on this.
