Can Dreams Predict the Future?

Some dreams do contain portents for the future but we must know how to distinguish between precognition and psychological content. Examples from studies show that sometimes dreams may get an overview of what may happen but the details may change. Mystics argue that the future is not set but can be changed by our free will.

Hopes and fears for the path ahead

Dreams that predict the future may show unexpected events, pitfalls, and opportunities but in the fact is you have free will and can choose your path. We may already hope or fear that certain things will happen and the unconscious will oblige with a ‘psychic dream’ that may be more about our own fears than things that will happen.

It is important to always have a sensible and discriminating attitude toward our dreams and not assume that everything that is revealed if a prophecy for the future.

How to tell if a dream is about the future

My own experience shows that dreams about the future have a special quality about them. You awake from the dream ‘knowing’ that it is about the future. These dreams usually have a strangeness about them but for me at least are rarely frightening or upsetting. Even disastrous events appearing in a psychic dream are experienced with calmness and sometimes with a sense of disinterest. The non-attachment may show that the dream is less about my own anxieties and could be a prediction or premonition of real events.

Questions to ask about the dream

If in doubt there are a few questions you may ask about the dream to find if it is about the future or not.

  •  Was the dream exceptionally vivid?
  • Are there any elements that seem particularly bizarre or don’t make sense?
  • Does the dream include things that have never happened?
  • Does the dream include people you’ve never met?
  • Is the dream set in situations you’ve never before encountered?
  • Is the emotional content unrelated to your own feelings?

Dreams that predict the future

Have you had a dream that predicts the future?

Signs, Stories, and Symbols:

Sometimes dreams contain the strangest signs of the future and the sleeping mind may latch on to the oddest of predictions. A dream that is famous in the UK happened to William Cavendish-Bentinck, the sixth Duke of Portland. While involved in preparations for the 1901 coronation procession of King Edward VII he dreamed one night that the royal coach got stuck in the arch at the Horse Guards.

Disturbed by the dream he ordered that the arch be measured the nest day. “to my astonishment,” he said, “we found that the Arch was nearly two feet too low to allow the coach to pass through.” It had been many years since the coach has been through the arch and over the years the level of the road had been raised by resurfacing work. The Duke had the road lowered and the procession went smoothly.

    I am 57years old I’ve predicted a lot of events in the near future, since past all apart from two after dreams the bin lorries (Glasgow,) and the (Not dream) Helicopter accident. Also Glasgow. I had an accident with a cherry picker (1985), got hurtled, the death of my son and daughter age 26,22 both suicide I can’t control these dreams this scares me, I try to forget them I believe I get a win fall (yet to happen) I will let you know if this happens I predict this to be before my next birthday April.

  • Lunette Sep 14, 2019, 9:47 pm

    The one that was freaky to me is when we both had dreams of meeting each other and falling in love. Never the same moment but random moments that have scattered for the past almost 5 years now. These dreams can take up to a few years before they come true.

  • ChangZhang Sep 13, 2019, 2:03 pm

    One of my friends also has dreamed that a war will happen in China in 20 years.

  • Tom Jul 16, 2019, 2:48 am

    The dream I had with most impacted me. It started with my older brother he was playing football in the local park everything was happy and then I got really sad. Then my brother turned into my pap and I began to cry and screaming dad, dad, dad as the image of my pap started to fade I could feel him fading in a way, this went on for a week and at the end of that week I found out my dad had cancer he later died around 6 months after . It was like I knew something was wrong alls I could think is that my brain was trying to tell me but it was in code if that makes sense. I’ve had a random dream like that before growing up where my dream has in one or another have come true in a sense. With the dream about my dad, I woke up crying on of the night’s I had the dream I don’t know if that’s a common thing.

    • Tom Jul 16, 2019, 2:51 am

      Iv always had lucid dreams were I know I’m dreaming and can wake myself from the dream but I can’t really control the dream like I heard other people can and Iv experienced I think it’s called sleep paralysis a couple of times were you frozen and can’t speak or try to walk or reach for the door but get a step and fall back to where you started or the feeling that your being held down by some superior force their quite scary, to be honest. but the ones where I kind of see into the future have a very different feeling like sadness and a real sense of urgency and panic like everyone is relying on you to fix whatever problem.

  • Harold Duane Hale Jun 28, 2019, 10:39 am

    This has happened to me several times throughout my life. When I was young, on three different accounts, the night before a tornado hit my town, I had a premonition in my dreams and knew exactly when and where it would hit, as well as how much damage is done. My family chalks it up to coincidence, but I knew better. After all, it happened exactly how I saw it every time. Not only that, but I predicted the sudden death of my grandfather in a dream as well. The day before it happened, he was getting better and it looked like he would make a full recovery so I didn’t go see him thinking I would go see him the next day. When I went to bed that night, I dreamed that he died that night at 12:28 in the morning, and at that exact minute that night, he coded. These are just a few of my experiences.

  • Jillian Campbell May 8, 2019, 6:32 pm

    So the other night my boyfriend had a dream that I left and moved out. He tried to get me to stay but I refused. He woke up and told me that. The day after I had gotten an email stating” Hello Jillian, you’re leaving so soon? Moving away somewhere new and starting over “ I showed him the email. We let it go because it’s just a coincidence. Well, yesterday he was on Snapchat and something popped up that replayed his dream. Does anyone know what this means possibly? Or is there even a name for this?

  • RandomGuy Dontmessagetheemail Mar 24, 2019, 6:20 pm

    I want to share this story as it haunts me. I was about a year before hand. I had just moved into a school (9th Grader at the time) and I had this strange dream. I was inside another school, not the one I was at, but a different one. The dream was very vivid and I could understand everything that was happening. I was learning stuff in the dream in which I had never known and I knew everyone in the class. I had no control over the dream as I watched everything happen. Fast forward about a year, I had moved, and in my new school, and I looked at someone and immediately knew their name. I didn’t understand until about the 6th period. I was in math and I relived my entire dream. Note that this is the first day. I felt as though everything the teacher said I had heard before. It was really weird. I’ve never told anyone about my dream and this the first time I have spoken about it.

  • George Feb 28, 2019, 1:45 pm

    Just figured I’d leave one of my experiences to hopefully influence others into paying mind to the knowledge locked within our timelines seen through dreams. About 8 years ago I had this dream about a car crash, hadn’t seen the car before but I was standing around 15 feet away looking at the car flipped on its hood/windshield( this image burned into my mind permanently unlike the dream itself) about 3 months afterward my best friend buys his first car we go and chill and what not, but on the way home we crash and flip the car, I make my out of the busted car (lucky to be alive, thank you guardian angel), I walk away to get a good view of what happened when I was in the exact spot with the exact same car flipped in the exact position and it blew my mind, much like deja vu does. This was my first experience on a path of spirituality, since then, many conversations with people become boring because there’s a 50/50 I’ve already had this convo.

  • Ash Feb 25, 2019, 5:37 pm

    A couple of years ago I was having dreams of my parents separating and I would tell my mum, I had this dream a number of times and it finally happened. I also dreamt that there was a bus crash near to the motorway bridge near my house and the next morning the crash actually happened as I was on my way to work. I have also experienced the same dream of a devil chasing me which I’ve had for years and years

  • Daniel Jan 29, 2019, 6:59 pm

    There’s another one I had a dream of drawing this weird mask at my dinner table. Well I had a fight with my family and as they were screaming I was drawing and when I finished it was the mask.
    These dreams don’t bother me, what really bothers me is that ever since I was 8 I always had this dream of driving a vehicle and crashing it into a river. I’ve had that dream for weeks same setting the same ending.

  • Daniel Jan 29, 2019, 6:58 pm

    I’m 17 and I’ve been having weird dreams not bad or anything. These dreams are mostly meeting stranger who turn out to be my friends in the future. I’m sure this doesn’t make any sense let me start from the begin. I’m not sure when but some time in 2010, I had a dream of getting into a car with some kid my age and I said something and in the driver’s seat, an old woman gave me the weirdest look I have ever seen. Well around 2015 it happened I met this kid and he invited me over to his house. I got in his car and said: “I don’t know a single person that doesn’t own a computer.” Just then his grandmother turns around and gave me that look that I dreamt of.

  • Douglas Jan 28, 2019, 4:45 am

    It’s weird. I have the dream just at a random point in the middle of sleep, always from my point of view, but instantly forget about it afterward. It’s always only a few seconds long, at most being like 10-20, and at the time would seem almost random. However, it seems that sometime later in the future, sometimes a couple of weeks, at most I’ve seen it happen 3 months later, the exact same thing happens: same visuals, same actions by other people, same things said and heard, everything, and I instantly remember it the second it happens.

  • Catie Dec 20, 2018, 1:11 am

    A few years ago, I had a dream of my mom getting badly hurt at a concert with my dad, her ex-husband, in a huge storm. It actually happened which I tried to keep her from going to the concert, but my dad wouldn’t listen. Another dream, I saw a buckskin Mounted Police horse named George. I met George the Buckskin Mounted Police horse, a few days ago.

  • Kimberley_from_Pluto Nov 14, 2018, 11:44 am

    I dreamt of a tsunami once, my family tried to convince we should run away. When we were in the car I screamed about leaving my favorite toy behind but we couldn’t go back for it. Later, we’re in a wintery town and the dream ends with the town flooding. I’ve had this dream twice; the second time the town got flooded faster and the water was higher.

  • Kimberley_from_Pluto Nov 14, 2018, 11:41 am

    Dream: that I was in a pool in a waiting line, I was staring at a giant window as a storm billowed outside. I realized I was dreaming (but unlike the other lucid dreams) I felt I was really there. I tapped my mum to tell her but then made a shocked aside action as I noticed that dream characters won’t reply. A few months later, we go to Blackpool-pool. There’s a storm outside and we have to wait an hour in the queue, I look out the window out of boredom and realize this was the same as my dream. I turn around and tap mum to tell her, then make the same shocked aside action subconsciously as I notice that she’s not replying same as in the dream.

  • Breanna Nov 10, 2018, 3:30 pm

    OMG, this happens to me. Like every day I’ll have something happen that reminds me of my dream the night before that I hadn’t thought of until that second.

  • Ben Oct 29, 2018, 6:46 am

    Honestly, I’ve been having the same experience and have for a long time. It just happened tonight again which is why I am here reading all of this. I’m not sure why it happens but like you said you know it was a dream, it’s different than Deja vu.

  • Caitlin Sep 18, 2018, 2:09 pm

    I didn’t use to believe in dreams predicting the future, until now! So a few months ago, a friend of mine told her mom I was a lesbian. Her mom didn’t like that and didn’t want her to hang out with me anymore. That was back in August. Today my friend came up to me during school and she asked if she could be my friend again. I said yes, and she’s now my friend again. I thought that was awesome!

  • Humairah Abdul Sep 8, 2018, 1:39 am

    Well, once I had this dream where I was running trying to get to the bus and I fell on my knees and it made me hurt but one day that really happened.

  • Dana johnson Sep 3, 2018, 9:51 pm

    I have always had dreams that are further in the future. About two or three years ago I had a dream about moving to Daytona. It happened but I never did anything to cause it. I never tried to get us to move my parents just decided and I did everything in my dreams. Some of the dreams I am a bit scared to imagine being the future because if it is true then if I do one thing wrong it could cause it to become true or not. I had dreams of friends killing themselves but I made that change when they started planning to kill themselves. I barely understand why I have these dreams because when I stop what happens in the dreams or let it happen something bad happens either way.

  • Amy Jun 16, 2018, 4:31 am

    I have been having these dreams since I was a child. They have always been about cats. When I was 12 my cat was hit by a car. That morning I woke up crying because I had a dream that she would get hit. When I was also 12, My cat of 19 years passed away. That time I didn’t have a dream or a remembered one but I woke feeling weird. More recently, my neighbor’s cat went missing and I had a dream that it had been attacked by a coyote and that it was in the woods. I checked the woods behind my house and rescued my neighbor’s cat. My dad told me that when he was a kid, the same things would happen to him. He knew that his dog would get hit by a car a few days before it actually happened. He knew that his parents would be getting a divorce before they or anybody else told him. But mine has always been about cats. I’m so confused. Why are all my prophetic dreams about cats? What does this say about me? I would like to know if anyone has any reasonable explanation for any of this.

  • Jason Shultz Apr 24, 2018, 2:01 am

    I’ve had experiences just like this. I’d have a dream where I would see something VERY specific, but I don’t remember anything about it until it actually happens. My family has had prophetic experiences for generations now and I am very interested in this subject.

    • Douglas Jan 28, 2019, 4:47 am

      I’ve experienced the same thing for a long time, and it’s the same with my family. My mom said that she used to have those sort of dreams all the time.

  • robert Apr 5, 2018, 4:31 am

    All my life I have visions and dreams, mostly earth movement. Problem I have is, I cant see the locations or countries so I pass them off. Then when the movements happen, then it all makes sense.
    Now for the past 3 weeks, each day/night, I see a collision between earth and a very large asteroid/rock, I see that its out beyond Pluto/last planet. It’s out there. I see a time frame of several years. I saw the impact in one of our oceans. The dream/vision has not altered. I see nothing of the after effects. In short, the vision ends on impact. Just getting this out there.

    • Sarah Apr 29, 2018, 9:02 pm

      In reply to your astroid dream. I have prophectic dreams mostly about myself and people I know. I live on the South Island of NZ. I also have had 3 dreams in which balls of fire come from the sky. In 2 of the dreams I wake up when I have been hit by a fire ball another dream I was escaping through a forest dodging the balls. I have consulted psychics who have confirmed my dreams as visions of an astroid/meteor, a future event. I feel this is a few years away. I don’t hold any fear over this more intrigued by the dream. I wonder if we are dreaming about the same event.

    • Gerard Tolentino Jul 12, 2018, 7:08 am

      I had a very similar dream. Again, it was set on an island but I was with a few of my friends. All of a sudden, some sort of ball of fire came from the sky and split into several smaller ones, and then I was running in a forest, trying to escape them. I don’t know what happened after because I woke up from my alarm. The dream ended before anything really crazy happened, but it was so vivid.

  • Sean Crawford Nov 29, 2017, 1:25 am

    Looks like your dream was correct once again. There are multiple wars going on and/or heating up right now that seem as if they may converge into one large war. Primarily in Europe and Asia. Two of which that are already going on are the Ukrainian-Russian War, and the Saudi-Iranian Proxy War.

  • David Nov 21, 2017, 12:02 pm

    Had the same thing happen! And researched shared dreams can happen if one person is a lucid dreamer, so in this case (me) but also lucid dreamers can train to be psychic? I also find that Noetic Science can help train a person to foresee if understood correctly, would like to know tips on how to become a stronger and better psychic.

  • me Nov 16, 2017, 1:25 pm

    Wow I’ve also been having dreams about a really really bad war in all of them I see military aircraft that I’ve never seen before in other dreams I’ve had recently they have been post war and the damage done is horrendous (and I usually can never remember my dreams unless they are important in some way)

  • jane brown Nov 2, 2017, 3:04 am

    YES, I believe dreams can predict the future, only we usually don’t know this until after the event that one has dreamed about has occurred. I’ve had a few dreams that have come true. The most vivid one that I can remember is a dream I had about someone trying to break into my apartment when I was in college. I lived alone at the time. As it turns out, someone DID try to break into my apartment a few nights later. In both my dream and in reality the person who was trying to break in had tried to enter through my bedroom window.

  • Matt Aug 16, 2017, 8:07 pm

    I dreamed my doctor was inconsolable because he couldn’t afford the lease in his building anymore. I was sitting with him, he was crying and I hugged him. This was two nights ago. I saw him today and he began crying, handed me a letter explaining his situation. That he couldn’t practice in that building because of rent increase. I hugged him, he said he loved me. Just like dream.

  • Katalina Cedeno Jun 21, 2017, 1:21 am

    I hate these dreams and want to believe that they are just dreams. I have seen the future all my life even preventing my son’s death, but I have also had a dream about another of my children passing and he did, a kidnapping it happened, my mother being murdered 3 days later it almost happened, hurricanes, and now the disasters that will come in the next few years. My grandmother was a natural born witch I do not practice or clam it for myself but I wonder if this is where my sight comes from.

  • Mystic Jun 3, 2017, 4:19 am

    About a few months ago I predicted a very tragic death that happened in my home town, in my dream I was tied up and this boy was standing over me, I felt sad and heart broken because I felt a strong emotion tie with him but he was a black figure and he held a knife, behind him not to far away was a female figure holding something in her hand and she stood in front of a maroon van, right when he went to slash my throat I woke up crying and scared it was so vivid and horrible,and two days later they found a girl tried up and sodomized, and just not to long ago in the news it said she had a huge crush on the male and the female was mad and just wanted to kill the girl because she figured why not, and what’s scary was that she was seen on the pass angers side of a maroon van the killers had her in. I felt so guilty for not saying anything about it.. This is the second time I’ve had a dream the predicted future events.

  • Ally Apr 18, 2017, 1:11 am

    From a young age I’ve always had strange dreams. I come from a family and culture that is quite superstitious so I always assumed that energy resided with me. I’ve had visits from deceased loved ones, dreams that have predicted the future. Some had symbols that indicated what would happen in the future and did! And dreamed of the future in detail. I remember having very vivid lucid dreams of flying. Certain times in my life where I had constant dreams of UFO that till this day I can’t make sense of but remember every detail of. I noticed as I’ve gotten older (I’m 24) that often I will have dreams of people I know only to find out later that something has happened to them. It’s a very vague description but there’s always dreams leading up to events with people in my life. It’s very hard for to describe or talk about this with people in my life, I fear that people will think I’m crazy or that I want attention. I just want to make sense of everything and learn how to read my dreams and instincts better. I want to channel it in a positive way so that when it involves those around me i can help to the best of my ability. I’ve been through some bad times as a teenager, suicidal and dependent on alcohol n drugs. I remember feeling cursed and would self harm to release “demons” that consumed every once of confidence, happiness and will to go on. I never thought I’d be alive to today and I’m quite proud of myself. But my dreams and spiritual side have intensified since failing to commit suicide 7-9 years ago. Maybe that had an effect?

  • Indigo Jan 29, 2017, 9:42 pm

    I had a dream that I was watching President Donald Trump’s inauguration in the beginning of December. I didn’t think much of it until the day the Electoral College voted to keep Trump in office. I thought it was crazy and I was upset all week because I knew it was going to happen, but didn’t want it to be true. Last week I watched the inauguration and the same moments played. Now what is freaking me out the most is that I had a dream that there is going to be a war. I’m not completely sure when it’s going to happen, but it is bad and it is happening sometime in the near future.

  • Dan martusso Jan 27, 2017, 1:05 am

    I dream all the time of things that eventually happen to me or just events. I close my eyes and not dreaming or not clearly thinking I see things that will happen. I draw sometimes and notice how much better than usual it is, this always comes true. I hear all the time of people who dream they were robbed or in a car crash or a train wreck, this is just your sub conscience creating scenarios you may have already thought of without realizing it.

  • Holly Marie Jan 20, 2017, 7:54 pm

    I have had two dreams that within the same week of having them the event happened. I was never directly involved but it always had to do with someone close to me. I had a dream that a car crashed through the side of the restaurant I worked at. That same week a car crashed into the side of our partner store while my direct manager was covering a shift at that location.

  • Keelia Dec 21, 2016, 2:44 am

    I often have dreams, about myself and I find that these dreams and visions start occurring a certain time later. I find myself in unknown and new situations or places but I don’t know what this means. Sometimes I have fleeting visions of others around me that come true but I don’t understand it. What does this mean?

  • Richard Kemp Dec 17, 2016, 9:49 pm

    I often have dreams that I don’t remember afterwards but then two or three days later will actually live that dream, at the time I will automatically know that I have dreamt this moment but not recall it otherwise? It can last for 10 to 20 seconds and has no relativity to anything? Its just a normal part of everyday life? Can anyone shine any information on this as I have told numerous people over the years and no one else seems to have had this and think I’m being weird? Thanks

  • Anonimous Nov 13, 2016, 9:01 pm

    Several times dreaming the same thing. Earthquake. In the morning, earthquake registered with high magnitude. The dream every time repeats, I walk through my neighborhood, buildings start to shake, sometimes they collapse, but I stay alive, in someway not interested in what is happening. Last dream 12->13.11.2016, in the morning on 13.11.2016, New Zealand high magnitude earthquake.

  • Brittany Nov 9, 2016, 4:59 pm

    I predicted Neil Armstrong’s death a week before it happened. He kept coming to mind and I saw the word “death”. I googled him and at the time saw he was still alive. A couple of days later he appeared in my dream. I was with this top secret Media where Neil went on stage, surrounded by men in black, and he pronounced his own death. I was backstage listening and watching everyone go crazy, standing, yelling, raising hands with questions. He did not answer 1. He quickly went off stage and passed me in the backstage area. I was the only one who was standing still. As he passed me, surrounded by MIB, he locked eyes with me and telepathically told me, “It’s all bulls***.” After he said that, everyone else disappeared. The MIB lead him through these red double doors. My spirit came out of my body in the dream and started to float towards the red double doors. I wanted to know where he was going. When I tried to go through, across the top it read: ACCESS DENIED. I knew immediately that he did not die. He went into a different dimension. When I woke up from the dream, 3 days later, the media pronounced that he passed away. It blew my mind that he came to me and delivered this message.

    • lookoutsidethewindow Nov 9, 2017, 9:12 pm

      Wow. That’s cool, but strange. I’m not saying that your dream was bad, but it was something like you were given a prediction of events that were about to happen. That dimension – you mentioned that showed in your dream – Neil Armstrong entered the red doors WAS ACTUALLY another dimension. He died. He left this life and entered a new “dimension”. I’m fascinated, truly. I’ve been through something like this about 2 or 3 times. I predicted every small move of the future. It was an experience I knew that none of my classmates would’ve understood, so I didn’t tell them. They’ would’ve thought I’m weird. Anyway. It’s important to share experiences like this because scientists and experts would have more evidence and proof for their theories.

  • Marty Oct 30, 2016, 10:39 am

    These precognative dreams are a rather common occurance for me, as I dream them up a month or two before the acctual even that is going to take place. These dreams of mine are nothing special, as in dreaming of wearing a new sweatter and preforming a certain action at a certain place. This realy bothers me.

  • ELF Oct 25, 2016, 12:13 am

    The last psychic dream I had was when I was ten. However, when I was around seven, I saw someone else’s dream. A classmate’s. I won’t describe it, as it was kind of personal, but we both knew every detail of the dream. Is this common among psychic dreamers? Or was it an exception, or coincidence?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Oct 26, 2016, 3:55 pm

      There are many instances recorded in which people share a dream. These are usually referred to as ‘Mutual dreams’.

  • Margo Oct 8, 2016, 9:36 pm

    Back in 2006 when my son was only 13 and 4’9 he and I had the same dream on the same night. Back then I kept my hair just past my shoulders. We must have woken up at the same time because we both walked out if our bedrooms at the same time. We looked at each other and both blurted out ” I had the weirdest dream”. In the dream I saw myself in a room standing in front if a large standing mirror. I was wearing a wedding dress and my hair was so long it almost touched my backside. I could see the reflection of the bed behind me and out the window to an open field. My son walks in the door (well over 6′ in the dream) and asks me ” are you ready mom? Its time.”. He then holds his arm out. He escorts me out of the room, down some stairs and through an entrance way that leads to an isle with an alter at the end where my groom is waiting. As we had been walking down the stairs we could smell the flowers that had been used to decorate the banister. The dream continued through the ceremony then to the reception. There were many people I didn’t know in 2006 actually in the dream. We could taste the food hear and feel the music. The dance I had with my “husband” felt so real I can still remember how his body felt and smelled.

  • Argall Sep 30, 2016, 3:58 am

    It happened again two nights ago. That dream two nights ago along with what I saw on the news today prompted me to put this on here so that I may get feedback hopefully on how to piece together any more future dreams. So, ever since I was very young I have had dreams periodically that always is a warning or precursor to events in near future. The dreams either pertain to myself or pertain to something in which will never involve me. Sometimes the accuracy scares me. Two nights ago I dreamt I was in a hotel near a city with a view of a train. No details about train I just knew it was one by sound and blurry sight. Extremely vivid details about a crashing and crunching noise like when a vehicle at point of impact is in an accident. I saw the colors of exploding metal parts and heard people screaming even though I was in a hotel room blocks away. Well today on the news a commuter train crashed injuring 100s and killing 1. This happened at the station and two blocks away from a hotel in New Jersey across River from NYC. Why are these dreams coming to me but seem to never give the details to kind of get a general area to look into nor do I get details about possibly when this will happen? Frustrating to me my entire life.

  • A Girl Sep 24, 2016, 11:56 am

    It happens rarely but it happens. Sometimes in sleep I predict future, my future, it’s not big stuff, it’s more short moments that will happen in future. When I wake up I don’t remember them, I only remember when it happens.

    When I was really young (maybe 5) I dreamed of a house in the woods that I would bring logs to or from or something like that. It seemed like a common dream, except it was too detailed and wouldn’t get out of my memories. Years later, when I went to camp in a whole different country (Ukraine) our camp had to find wood to bring to the fire. We were beside a village, and one person decided to ask one of the houses for wood (one particular house, actually, because in their backyard they had tons of chopped wood) and the one she went up too look incredibly familiar from my dream and we got wood there. Another dream was that I had a dream of going to some really nice science-y facility and years later, I went there. In both circumstances, I’ve never been to the places, and there was no real significance to the dreams, however, they were both very vivid images that I could remember. I swear, I did not see these places on TV or whatever and it was not my subconscious. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get more “predicting the future” dreams?

    Throughout my life I dream of places I’ve never seen or been to. Sometimes it’s a road or sometimes just a house. I don’t dream about future events, just places. I will forget about the dream until I see the place I dreamed about. I won’t remember details about the dream accept for the place. Sometimes it will be years later that I see the place I dreamed of.

    I had a dream last night Saturday that I’m at a club and it turns into a massacre. I was shot and many people died. In the morning, I saw the news of the Orlando shooting. Now I’m afraid to sleep again.

    • anonymous Jun 16, 2016, 11:44 am

      I had a dream that a murderer ran through my house and I have a feeling that it might come true maybe it’s just my subconscious thinking about everything going on but just this morning I found out that someone’s car got shot at I don’t really know if that’s the same thing.

  • Isaac burdge May 13, 2016, 3:35 pm

    I looked this up because I know I have dreams of the future, the dreams are perfectly clear at the rime and I can remember them while I’m in the dream but the next day I forget them and then sometimes days months or even years later they happen, they aren’t of major events just about things in my life, like I had dreams of a moment where I was hanging with my friends and of movies and games and life events that happened and later they happened, I just want to better understand them and find if there is a way to control my dream so I can remember them more specifically and see them when I want to, my theory is that the reason we see them is because at night while we are sleeping our body is taking less power from our brains so our brain has more power to unlock parts of itself, we only use 10% of our brains, there has to be a way to unlock the other 90% and achieve great things with it and I believe there is a way to do it, I have researched and researched to try and find a way to truly unlock ones mind and use that brain power, and I feel like dreams are a part of unlocking your mind.

    I have had a few of those types of dreams. A few months ago I had a dream where I was at a camp site with a beautiful girl. I saw her laugh in the dream at a certain angle. The same week the same girl laughed and my head was positioned in the same exact angle.

  • Deloris Feb 29, 2016, 1:26 am

    When I was eight I lived in Chicago and my uncle lived in Memphis. At 10 one night my uncle called my mother who was his sister. He had a dream about me and he could see me in a room that was on fire. The next night my parents were woke up with the smell of smoke. My mother went to my bedroom and my lamp had caught on fire.

    Then when I was 24 my daughter was 3. My mother made a surprise visit to my house and was very upset, She wanted reassurance that I never let my daughter be alone while near the water. I reassured her that I would never leave her unattended. The next day my mothers cousin who she had been raised with like a brother. His grandson that looked similar to my daughter had drowned in a family pool that had been closed up for the winter. In my mothers dream she saw a blonde hair child face down in water with leaves around it. Nobody can say these events are coincidence. I have the gift of dreams and my mother and uncle agree. We awaken in a panic and pace. Until we can tell the dream their is no peace of mind and we cannot concentrate until we go to the source.

    I have trouble understanding what’s happening to myself. I can’t find answers and so far there is no website that gives me any clues. I dream in my sleep but some of the dreams are like predictions I can not say cause I do not remember the dream when I wake up. Months or so later I will do something or see something and it hits me. “Deja vu” I know I’ve seen it and I feel its happens before. I’ve caught on that I dream them. No one will believe me and I can’t figure out why its happening I’d just like something that explains it. Does anyone know anything?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker May 5, 2015, 2:40 pm

      Some people suffer from a persistent feeling of Deja Vu that may be brought on by stress or other psychological conditions. To prove you are getting real insights into the future you need to keep a detailed dream diary with proof that you predicted events before they happen.

      • lookoutsidethewindow Nov 9, 2017, 9:26 pm

        Thanks for the info, because I’ve been through a Deja Vu dream before 2 times. It was predicting the future kind of dream. I just happened to see the dream without knowing that it was a prediction dream. At the time of the dream, I just thought it could be any other random dream. I have very weird dreams by the way. TOO weird I can’t say.

    • S Mar 20, 2016, 6:26 am

      I have had this exact feeling with a dream that predicts the future: It was a weird dream to me, because normally my dreams are wild with many strange events, but this one was like an everyday event. I didn’t think a lot about it. Several months later, I had lost a pen. I reached down under my desk and looked everywhere but couldn’t find it. Then, as if a sudden insight hit me, I decided to look in the back corner where I hadn’t found anything before. It was there. I walked to my meeting and it hit me. Everything that just happened had been in a dream months ago. This was even before I had been in the building for the first time to start working there. Ever since, I have had other dreams where the exact thing will happen, all centered around this business. Basically what I am trying to say is that I feel like I can relate to you, in the not finding anything and no one believing and it being off putting and weird.

    • Naomi Apr 19, 2016, 8:18 am

      I had the same thing, but the only difference was that my time distance is longer, instead of months I have a year later or so. I just don’t understand what’s going on.

  • gina Feb 22, 2015, 11:38 pm

    I have had a similar dream part of the tip of Baja California sinks into the ocean, California becomes an island continent. Their are many sinkholes imploding due to the oceans of crude oil pumped out of the ground in California. Where I live on the California Arizona border.

  • Natalie Jun 1, 2014, 5:31 am

    In 2010 I had a dream where I had an aerial view of the ocean and a navy ship. The ship blew up and someone made me take note that the explosion came from within the ship, the material of the ship exploded out, if this makes sense.

    I was also made to observe a second highly important factor in the scene, and that was the ships emblem; the European Flag.

  • susan Nov 19, 2013, 5:02 am

    I’ve had dreams my whole life about future or next day events. Often as a child, I would dream about small next day events. I wanted to make it stop, but I couldn’t shut it off completely. I am not psychic but somehow tap into something when I sleep. I have found that for big events I will repeat the dream. I dreamed about the world trade centre falling down starting in 1975. For years I thought it would be from an earthquake until the week before 911. I had several snippet dreams. In the first dream, everyone was evacuating down the stairs at the world trade centre. In the second dream, planes were flying near my car while I was driving. I work two buildings away from the trade centre and live not far away. The first plane flew right over my apartment building. My place of work was closed for 2 years while they repaired the building. My friends always tell me please don’t dream about me when they say good bye. I try not to.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Nov 19, 2013, 12:58 pm

      I must say your dreams predicting the future are remarkable. At the time of 911 we had many fascinating posts on my forums from people who dreamed of the attack. I too had a dream just before the events of being with a group of Arabs and learning to fly in Florida (Though I live in the UK). I was shocked to see on the media that the terrorists had trained to fly in Florida.

  • Jane Sep 5, 2013, 2:50 pm

    My mum passed over in 1991, and in 2003 she appeared in a dream wearing a dressing gown that she used to wear when she was alive. She was sitting in the basement of a Victorian house on what seemed to be a coal burner…smoke was billowing around her and flames were licking the bottom of her dressing gown, and she said clear as day, “Watch Shaun he will get burnt”, at that point I woke up. I was a bit apprehensive as I had a 6 year old son called Shaun who had learning difficulties. My mum had never known him as she had passed over long before he was born. I forgot about the dream, until 8 months later. We had just got back from the school run and I was in the toilet, next minute my son runs in screaming with his hand looking as though it had been in acid, the skin was white and dangling. It turned out he had tried to make himself a Pot Noodle, and had poured the boiling water directly on to his hand! As I had got his hand into cold water immediately, it had prevented a 3rd degree burn, and his hand healed quickly over a week. Although my mum gave me a warning, I think it was just her way of letting me know she was still around and watching us. I’ve had many prophetic dreams over the years, but that’s my favourite one.

  • vicki Jun 3, 2013, 2:00 am

    About three years after my father died….he gave me four numbers he told me they would be ready in two months….two months later they came out… mother died four years ago I dream of her al the time…we were looking for a house for two years…..I went to look at a pretty house….that night and every night until the closing which took three months I dreamt of her…..

  • Robin Apr 21, 2013, 5:15 am

    I once dreamt that I was driving and hit a dog. I awakened feeling upset, as I love animals so. That very morning while I was driving to work, a dog bolted from a sidewalk and ran right in front of my car. I hit him, but he was not terribly injured. I was very shaken. was this a dream that predicted the future and if so what does this mean, in terms of my possible psychic ability?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Apr 23, 2013, 1:21 pm

      Most people have mild psychic ability and maybe everyone has it in a latent form. During sleep the unconscious latent powers are released and through our dreams we can predict the future and have access to a host of extrasensory talents.

  • Craig Hamilton-Parker Apr 18, 2013, 1:23 pm

    I had a dream many years ago (1976 ish) that I thought at the time was a dream that predicted the future. I was in a huge earthquake in San Francisco. When I visited some years later I was on high alert but nothing happened. Similarly I had another dream of the Hollywood sign fall over – a prediction that I added to my newspaper predictions.

    I may be going again…. possibly on the dated suggested by your dream premonition. So I am hoping we are both wrong!

    • Jayme Hales May 24, 2015, 12:31 am

      22nd April 2015: I had a dream that the Hollywood sign fell due to an earthquake. The metal scaffolding around the L letter fell and trapped people in buildings. I was running into an amusement arcade area where I tried to save people but it was too late.

  • Katra Apr 17, 2013, 8:41 pm

    I had a dream that predicted the future back in 2010 of “the big one” California earthquake. The details are a bit fuzzy now, but I basically saw everything west of the San Andres fault line drop several feet down and saw the ocean water rush in. My dream seemed to be specific to Los Angeles (where I’ve only been one time on vacation when I was 18). There was nothing else specifically relevant in the dream (no recognizable people or buildings from my daily life) When I woke, I just remembered thinking June or July of 2012 or 2013 (June 3rd 2013 seemed particularly significant) this would happen. I do remember trying to backtrack to make sure I hadn’t watched some earthquake show or related topic on TV anytime recently before the dream – I had not.

    I’ve had precognitive visions throughout my life, but mostly stupid stuff related only to me & my life and always while I was awake. I’ve never had a precognitive dream & have never had a precognitive vision of anything larger than or outside of myself.

    I’m starting to get nervous now that June is only a couple months away. The only way I’ve ever know any of my visions to be accurate is when they actually occur – otherwise if I interfered, I would not have any verification. It’s impossible for me to say this will “absolutely” happen, but if my vision is correct, then we will be dealing with the largest catastrophe in US & Mexico history (yes, it stretched down to Mexico, making the Baja peninsula an island).

    I’m wondering if anyone else has also seen this vision. I have no idea where these kinds of things are even talked about. I know that many psychics felt the 2005 tsunami coming – I would expect that many would pick up on this event as well. I hope that it was just a weird dream & not a vision, but I would feel really bad if I had not at least tried to reach out & put the idea out into some psychic circles for discussion.

    • Katra Jun 17, 2013, 8:13 pm

      Well I’m glad that early June has passed w/o a devastating earthquake in CA. I have been watching the earthquake map on & there’s been a lot of small activity in the Southern CA area (under 5 pt magnitude) in the last 30 days. Even though the dates for when I felt this would happen have passed, I still don’t really feel relieved.

      • Ellie Jan 1, 2015, 11:09 am

        I’m not a psychic or anything.. not that I don’t think so! But i did Dream the Boxing day Tsunamis in 2004! we were in Phuket my self and family and friends. we left 3 days before the disaster. I dreamt it while we were there and told everyone. I felt eerie and had pins and needles a lot. When we left and flew to Singapore for Christmas, it was all over over the news on boxing day. I had also dreamt of a family who lost their mum.

        I felt like the biggest freak. After that, I’ve dreamt plane crashes, avalanches, explosions, volcanic eruptions: I’m always in the dreams too. I’m either running away or standing somewhere watching it! I dreamt also that I was standing on top of a car park watching the world being engulfed with water. That was about 6 months ago. It’s weird as, but I want to know more of what i have! something has opened up somewhere.. I’m so interested!
