For the first time, I would see physical reality from the same perspective that I see a lucid dream. The realizations were very clear, inescapable.
This physical reality, as unthinkable and unbelievable as it might seem, was a type of dream. Or at least, that is what I rationalized based on the
experience at hand.
Sure enough the dream unfolded as I had dreamed it in the lucid state. I went along with the dream and had this new overlay of internal thought
chatter as I rationalized and feared and doubted the whole way through, up until the point that I had exited the dream.
The group that put on the play as it turns out was a traveling Christian group that was preforming the play for schools. The girl I was talking to in
the dream liked me and asked if I wanted to see the play of which I answered yes. It was totally uncanny. A real you had to be there event to
What ever belief I had in a physical reality was stripped from me that day. I had crossed a bridge that I did no know existed, and forever would I
now exist in what I could only surmise was some type of dream that followed a chronological order of events.
My parents by this time were hitting a massive fear button because I had become so accepting of these events and so open to talk about them that they
were sincerely thinking I needed professional help. It would be this fear and uncertainty that led me to tell my mother in explicit detail a dream
that I had.
I was very coy about explaining every detail, careful to use hand gestures to explain abstract visual events. The dream was regarding a new sprinkler
system that my parents had installed. I told my mom that unlike a traditional sprinkler that had the hammer like head, this one sprayed streams of
water like a flower, and I used my hand and fingers to describe the rotation.
I told her we were on the balcony and there was a fire on Munson Mountain, a very famous mountain in my town. Further more, my father started to
freak out and yell at me.
She said that was interesting because they were planning on having a new underwater sprinkler system installed. She sipped at her coffee and told me
that I had some really good dream recall and I should be a writer with my imagination.
Time went by, and one day my parents wanted us to go out and see the new water system they had installed. We walked out on the deck, and there was a
fire on Munson mountain. The water sprinker had just turned on as we looked over and the head popped up showing the grass in a flower like stream
pattern as I had described.
What I didn't tell my mom, was that she also freaked out. She suddenly screamed, “I know this!”
“OH MY GOD! I NOW THIS!”, she screamed even more. “I don't know how, but I know this.”.
“Mom, remember that dream I told you? That's how you know.”, I told her.
She looked at me in fear. My father turned on me and yelled, “You are messing with powers you don't understand!” He started to scream and yell
irrationally at me. I just stood calmly letting him vent. This event would result in me leaving my parents and nearly not talking with them for 2
It was something that they were not able to deal with.
Other dreams that came true also showed me that I didn't always like knowing what was going to happen next, for example a dream where I had a
surprise gorilla at a restaurant for my birthday, and I couldn't hide the fact that I already knew it.
In other cases, I realized it was good to know things before they happened, like when my Dog died. The dream that I had which came true to the T
concerned me enough to spend as much quality time with my Dog before his demise.
When these dreams would be about family, they were not as welcomed as the one with the Dog. By the time I was 18 years old, I had moved out of my
parents house and had experienced hundreds of dreams that had come true since the start back when I was 15.
The epic dream actually gave me a bit of a reprieve from this experience. I was so exhausted from having such an event, it seemed to just make every
other dream that came true uninteresting.
More Lucid Precognitive Dreams followed that event. In one case, I remember being in Vancouver BC walking off the sky-train downtown Vancouver to
meet my brother on Robson street for a beer. In the dream, I met an actor from SCTV named Joe Flaherty who was at a restaurant called O'Douls. My
brother and I sat with him at the bar and talked about SCTV and other movies he was in.
When this dream came true, the synchronicity when I walked off the sky-train was again exceptional. It was this dream that sparked my curiosity:
Could I change a dream before it came true?
This questioning inspired what would start a mapping phase of dreaming where I tried to invoke a change on a dream to see if these changes would come
true. It would be a simple technique of leaving a geometrical shape on something to see if that would happen.
The result of this experimentation would in fact prove to me that I could in a very controlled way, change a dream that was precognitive in nature and
these changes would in fact come true.
In 1998, I would satisfy nearly all my curiosity about this phenomena and as a result I had some amazing experiences with phenomenology related to the
changes I had made during a lucid precognitive dream.
Here is a link to the thread which has some of those results. LINK
I retired from this exploration and started to focus on a career in flash animation and programming. My experiences with precognitive dreams started
to subside and relax. Now it is just mildly occurring, most often symbolic precognitive dream verses the very literal lucid precognitive dream that I
would leave in my wake.
