Dreams that Foresee the Future
Could it be that dreams can somehow give everyone a secret key to unlock the secrets of the past and the future? Throughout history, many people have claimed to be able to have foreseen upcoming events and their dreams have proven to have come true to the letter. This ability to see the future in dreams is called Dream Precognition. (The ability to see the past is called retrocognition)
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.

IS THE FUTURE SET?
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.”

Precognition 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.

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.
