My Premonition Dreams

This is my first thread, so be gentle

I began having premonitory in about the 7th or 8th grade and have been having them continuously, two or three times a week, (with varying degrees of intensity) for the last 12 or 13 years.

The premonitions themselves rarely give me anything more than the ability to anticipate someone entering a room seconds before it happens, but sometimes I get a good glimpse of something interesting.

The quality of these premonitions seem to be dependent on the amount of stress or change I'm going through in my life (moving to a new place, relationship changes, job changes, financial worries, etc). I think the dreams were most powerful when I was a teenager due to the severe amount of drama I had to endure during my parent's divorce.

When it first happened I was in 7th grade and remember dreaming about my computer science class. I was sitting at my workstation and my teacher was a few feet away chatting with a bunch of other teachers. They were talking about how difficult it was to get into the office to get their paychecks, one of the statements being "It's like WWF in there!"

The next morning, I'm sitting in that same computer class with my teacher having the exact same conversation nearby. I wasn't really paying attention (too busy trying to send trojans and stuff to my friends), but at some point I kind of tuned, perked up and said (rather loudly) "It's like WWF in there!" at the same time the other teacher did. They all looked at me strangely and went somewhere else to talk.

Another time that stands out is when I was about 15... I think it was not too long after the first incident. I was 15 or so and living in Oregon at the time... I remember having a dream about living in Canada with this girl who had long curly brown hair. In my dream I remember seeing a little calico colored cat and possibly the ugliest green flower-patterened couch I'd ever seen.

The next morning I came downstairs and for some reason NEEDED to tell my dad about it. We had a good laugh, made some Canadian jokes and left it at that.

At the age of 19 while I was living in Colorado, I met this Canadian girl online with long brown curly hair. I ended up moving to western Quebec with her and we eventually got a little calico colored cat named Bean. The memory of this dream didn't register though until her parents gave us that disgusting green couch from their basement... Her dad and brothers had moved the couch into our apartment while I was at work and once I came home the whole thing clicked. Mind you, this dream was from FOUR YEARS in the past. Blew my mind.

I've got several other memorable incidents and I'd be happy to share them if anyone's interested.

Basically, I was wondering if anybody could share some stories or advice on how I might be able to harness this phenomenon and somehow gain some personal growth from it. I don't expect to be able to see future lottery numbers or anything silly like that; I like to think I'm a little more evolved than that

Quite an interesting story and experienced you've had. Well, I've them before but not as often or prominent as yours. Since this only happens every blue moon for me, I like to call my experiences Deja-Vu when it actually come into play.

The only thing I can say to you with respect to your gift is to keep at it, keep practicing, meditate to enhance it even more and eventually have those premonitions whenever you desire them.

Thanks for sharing your experiences! (Oh, I don't remember some of mine, like I said before they don't happen frequently and as a result are easy to forget about them)

Pretty interesting. Please feel free to give us some more incidents.

As far as harnessing it, I have no clue. Do you ever jot any of these dreams down?

Hi TEO, thanks!

I try to stay objective and not jump to conclusions about this stuff... If I can't remember the dream well enough I usually pass it off as deja vu; though I do keep it in the back of my mind just in case.

I honestly SHOULD be writing these down; I'm sure I'd start discovering a lot more of these incidents than I do now. I've tried a few times but I'm slow to wake up... By the time I'm alert enough to think of writing, I'm already in the shower and my day is already started.

I'm usually VERY good at remembering all my dreams without much aid (I can even recall dreams I had while I was a little kid), though it couldn't hurt to make a better effort to document them.

Here's a more recent example:

In February of 2009 I moved from Arizona to North Carolina with my dad. His boss was opening a new car dealership down here, he got selected to help run it and I tagged along hoping to find a better job.

Around March of 2009 I was still searching for something a little better than McDonalds, and one night I had a dream that my dad and I were sitting in the sales tower at the new dealership... We were having a discussion about a website we're trying to get going and he was eating one of those little seedless oranges. I got the impression that I wasn't visiting, that I was SUPPOSED to be there.

Anyway, a few months later the owner of the dealership needed some help with things their present IT guy wasn't taking care of quickly enough. I went down to lend a hand and impressed them enough to take that position.

A few months ago my dad and I were sitting in the sales tower discussing our site, him eating an orange and me sitting there waiting for something to update on one of the computers. :-P I was sure I'd told my dad about this dream the morning after I had it but he tends not to remember stuff he doesn't care about.

The most interesting part of these things is the realization that sweeps over you once you remember the dream as the event is happening. With normal deja vu you get this general feeling of familiarity, not much more than that.

Remembering these dreams as they're happening is something totally different, like I'm completely aware of everything going on around me for that brief instant (sounds, smells, colors). It's difficult to explain clearly, but I definitely know when it happens, even for something trivial.

That's very interesting, Brentnauer. At least your dreams aren't showing some cataclysm from the future. I decided I wouldn't remember my dreams for a long while and then just recently started a mind suggestion to remember. In the last dream I had, the grass turns yellow and is so soft to walk on. I hope we don't have a long dry spell. It's been absolutely steaming this summer. I don't even like to go outside.

Oh man, it's ridiculously humid and hot in NC this summer. Not sure I'm going to stick around for too much longer if this is the kind of weather we get in the southeast :-(

I don't think I've ever had a cataclysm or end of the world type dream... Everything I experience tends to be in a third-person kind of view of something happening specifically to me at some point in the future.

The third person view... That's something that only seems to happen in the premonition type dreams. In all others it's a first person vantage point. I forgot to mention that!

TheEnlightenedOne mentioned meditating to grow this ability... Do you guys have any suggestions for specifically how and when to do this? During the day, before I go to bed, after I wake up?

When my husband was a teenager, he had a strange dream about sitting in a kitchen he'd never seen, talking to a lady he'd never met, telling her his name, phone number, etc. As she picked up the phone to make a call, he looked around at the wallpaper, spice rack, out the window, etc. She hung up the phone and dabbed his forehead. The one thing that impressed him about the dream is how real it seemed, like he was really there.

Six months later, on the way to school, his VW slid into a telephone pole. He was dazed, but able to get out of the car on his own. A lady led him into her house and sat him down at the kitchen table. He felt a sense of deja vu as she asked him his name, phone number, etc. But as she picked up the phone to dial, and he began to scan to room, the dream slowly resurfaced into his consciousness. Same wallpaper, same lady, same everything. The kicker was when she dabbed the blood off of his forehead when she got off of the phone. He says it was exactly like re-living an actual event all over again. (He is generally the most skeptical person I know when it comes to the paranormal, but he is convinced his dream was a premonition.) I, on the other hand, cannot completely rule out the possibility that he time-traveled to the future whilst sleeping!

Cool thread... I've had a couple of experiences, so long ago now they escape me.

"He says it was exactly like re-living an actual event all over again."

That's precisely what I experience! The lead-up to the revelation is a general feeling of deja vu and then it totally engulfs your senses. A very peculiar state of awareness.

I like the time traveling idea, that I'm pulling a Marty McFly at night while I sleep

I wonder if it's a form of astral travel or remote viewing... Would either of these account for the third person vantage point?

Yes, just the sense I got from him.

His was more of a 1st person vantage point, which made me think of time travel. Yours (3rd person) sounds like astral projection --you're viewing yourself in an experience. Then again, since the experience you're viewing is the future, it also involves breaking the boundary of time. So... both?

Or, there's always the idea that everything is happening all of the time (that time is not linear) and you have a real knack at glimpsing into episodes that are happening concurrently in your life. Curious, do you ever visit the past?
