Even as a child I had dreams that did actually come true, not the one where I win the lottery, but many others did. I know that this is not just something that happens to me because I have spoken to a lot of other people who have had this happen to them as well. This is something that I wonder about a lot, it’s my nature to think things to death so bare with me here.
I know that this is a subject that people have spoken and written about for ages, and even though there are many theories about why this occurs I remain uncertain about why this happens. Luckily for me I more intrigued by the unexplainable than distraught by it. This is exactly the kind of subject matter you can’t bring up around just anyone, so that makes it perfect for our blog.
Prophetic dreams are in many ways like deja vu except that it’s a sort of a glimpse of something that has already occurred rather than something that will occur. I sometimes wonder if deja vu is a side-effect that we experience as the result from having had a prophetic dream. Maybe the feeling that you have already experienced something is because you actually had a prophetic dream that you had forgotten you had.
Still following me here or ready to walk away shaking your head because you haven’t had a enough coffee yet to deal with this kind of a subject so early in the day? The dreams that I have are very vivid. Sometimes they are about good things, but more often they dreams that show me things that I’d rather not face. It’s almost like my brain understands that I will react in a much better way if I have already faced in my dreams what I’m about to face in my reality. A kind of dry run for my emotions.
The reason I think this works is because when the bad thing actually does occur I am able to buffer the pain in some ways by letting my brain encompass the amazing thought that I already knew this was going to happen. My intrigue about having done this buffers me from the full effects of the pain the actual situation may be causing me at that time.
It’s just the kind of thing I think about. Maybe by now your wishing you had a prophetic dream of your own that warned you not to read this post or maybe deja vu that you already did. 😉
