It is true that dreams sometimes tell the future but please think twice before passing on a dream prophecy to another person. It must be remembered sometimes our own hopes and fears about the future also play a role in dreams. We may want or fear that the future will turn out a certain way and these hopes and anxieties can be reflected in the dream content.

When people come to see me for a psychic consultation I remind myself that sitters DO NOT wish to know their future, or have it predicted – that future could be a very sad future and nobody wants to hear that. The truth is they want to be told that everything is going to work out they way they wish! Similarly dreams about your own or another’s personal future may be influenced by your hopes and fears.

Ancient Prediction

During the times of ancient Greece from the Temple of Apollo housed the famous oracle of Delphi. Located in a dramatic setting on South slopes of Mt. Parnassos, Delphi was regarded in antiquity as the center of the world. Within its walls sat the Pythia, an elderly priestess of Apollo, who made their strange prophecies while in a sleepy euphoria induced by the intoxicants that emanated from water bubbling from a rock fissure beneath the temple. (Some theorize that these gasses included methane and ethane, which can be intoxicating, as well as ethylene, widely used as an anesthetic in the first half of the 20th century..)

The unintelligible uttering of the Pythia were interpreted by the temple priests and then composed into verses. The oracle’s chief shortcoming was the ambiguity of her advice. Croesus, king of Lydia, went to war against Cyrus of Persia after the oracle told him that “a great nation would fall” if he crossed the Halys River. Unfortunately, the great nation turned out to be his own.


Dreams speak to us in the language of symbolism. They use metaphor and allegory to express our inner condition. Although nobody knows for certain why we dream it is generally accepted that they stop the emotions from overheating, respond to our bodily and psychological needs, and offer solutions to our problems. And very occasionally dreams fulfill their aims using clairvoyant insight.

Do not jump to frightening conclusions when interpreting the meaning of a dream. Not everything in a dream is a prophecy. It is more likely that the dream is speaking about your emotions and fears than predicting events that will come to pass.

Signs, Stories, Experiments and Symbols:

Dreams have been interpreted as prophecies of the future throughout time by all civilisations. Here are a few of the main Western beliefs:

The Babylonians
For the people’s of Mesopotamia dreams came from either the gods or from demons. If a demon brought a bad dream prophecy their the Babylonian priests would pray to Mamu the god of dreams and ask that the bad dream may never come true. Mamu was pictures as of either sex but is usually pictured as the daughter of the Sumerian sun-god Utu.

The Assyrians
The Assyrians believed dreams to be mostly omens of good or ill luck. Bad dreams demanded action such as an exorcism. Other dreams were seen as “advice”. In fact this sense of a misfortune being predicted by bad dreams was common to most ancient cultures.

The Egyptians
The Egyptians believed that the gods showed themselves in dreams, demanding pious acts, or warning of impending doom. A dream could serve as an oracle and bring messages from the gods. The best way to get an answer to a question or about a health condition was to incubate a dream. (See Incubation)

The Greeks
The Greeks also believed that the gods brought dreams and prophecies. Sleep was governed by Hypnos, the god of sleep, who was the brother of Thanatos the god of death and the father of Morpheus the god of dreams. The early Greeks thought that the people who inhabited their dreams lived near the Underworld. Homer reports on Agamemnon’s dream from Zeus carried by Hermes. It was the battle plan that came from the Demios Oneiron, the village of dreams on the way to Hades.

The Hebrews
Being a monotheistic religion the Hebrews believed that prophetic dreams came only from the one God.

Dreams and astrology are closely related in Muslim culture. True dreams come from Allah, false ones from the devil Iblis.

The Romans:
The prophetic value of dreams was so important to the Romans that the Emperor Augustus decreed that anyone who had a dream about the state must proclaim it in the marketplace. Homer and Herodotus thought it natural that the gods should send dreams to men, even to deceive them, if need be, for the accomplishment of their higher ends. Julius Caesar’s decision to cross the Rubicon is attributed to a dream in which he saw himself in bed with his mother (Mother Rome, the seers told him) His assassination was foretold in his wife’s Calpurnia’s dream. “She held him in her arms, bleeding and stabbed.” Another Caesar, Caesar Augustus, is said to have walked the streets as a beggar because of instructions he received in a dream.


Spiritualists believe that we have free will and that there is no fixed destiny, no predetermination. Precognition is a glimpse of a possible future that is based upon present conditions. The future may be altered because of the influence of our free will. Interestingly. this suggests that the future can cause the past, a phenomenon called “backward causality” or “retro-causality.”


Time is an illusion perpetrated by the manufacturers of space.

abraham-lincolnPrecognition is the paranormal awareness of future events. Foreseeing the future in a dream would be an example of precognition. This may also include prophecy and predictions which are statements that claim to foretell future events and premonition which is an intuitive experience believed to foretell future events.

For example I dreamed about learning to fly an air-plane at a flying school in Florida. With me were some odd-looking Arabic students. I assumed that dream was something to do with my past as a London Flying School (with a branch in Florida) used to be one of my clients when I worked as a graphic designer. A few days later when two air-planes hit the World Trade Center I did not connect the dream with the event. However, further news coverage revealed that the terrorists had only recently attended a flying school to learn enough to steer a plane into a building. This dream is an example of precognition.

Signs, Stories, Experiments and Symbols:

A more famous dream precognition example than mine happened to President Lincoln. Two weeks before his assassination, he dreamed that there was a funeral at the White House. In the dream he asked a soldier who was in the casket and the reply was, “the president of United States”. Later when he told his wife about the dream, she remarked that he would die in office.

Perhaps Lincoln would have survived if he had given his dream more credence and changed his plans. Perhaps he would not have visited Fords Theater, not been shot by Wilkes Booth and the course of history would have been changed. It is the belief of most psychic people that the future is not set and can be changed by our actions. Precognition is the mechanism by which we gain insight into the changes we need to make.
