Why do some people see thier future in dreams? I do. Just everyday stuff, taking a test in class, ordering food, so on and so on. Why?But, this didn't happen until my car accident(dang drunks) Now I see my future every now and then, and dont know it until it happens. I get a deja vuu feeling, then reconize(sp?) what is happening.

Is it because it is when our brain shuts down, it opens up new areas in your psyche? Or is it your sub conscience part playing out what you will do the next or the day after and so on.

Hmmm...really don't know for sure.

I have this theory that time is NOT in fact that is doesn't go from start to stop in a straight line...but kinda twirls around like a helix of sorts, or criss crosses etc.

Also...I don't believe that the spirit is governed by the constraints of time...that time has no bearing/limit upon it. So perhaps when we dream there are occasions when we loose ourselves in spirit...and via spirit we transcend the twisting/crossing path of time gaining a peak at not only our future but our past as well.

Though as The Oracle said to Neo in the movie The Matrix "...oh...whats really going to fry your noodle later on is 'Would you still have broken it if I didn't say anything'.."

...self fulfilling prophecy??? Perhaps in a way we create our fate...

...visualise - actualise...

When you're dreaming, you are out of your body, so you're in a different plane (with a different vibrational frequency) than on the physical plane...

On that physical plane time is just as Alien describes it. So in theory, you're able to time travel to any place in anytime instantly... I think then that you'll travel to the most probable past or future...
(All possible pasts and futures exist!!! You just even think one moment about something and it's a probability) (multiple universes/dimensions)

So if you're interested, learn to have lucid dreams, remote viewings, or astral projections. It's possible to reach that plane with each of those three experiences...

you may have damaged your temporal lobe in the accident to being experiencing this so much..
but, on the topic of lucid dreaming, i've been really into that lately... trying to get into my dreams.. and slowly, very small coincidences keep happening.. i know when someone is going to call..etc.. just little things.. i could be projecting thoughts via telepathy, but... i don't know.. and i've been having visions.. as well as what happens in my dreams with others coming true the next day...
what did you think of the movie Vanilla Sky? it seems a lot of people didn't like it, but i was really into it.. i loved it.. loved it so much , that i watched it 2 times in a row!!!it was like a roller coaster for my mind...
am i the only dreamer that understood it and liked it that much??
let me know....

Hmmm...I'd be interested in techniques for the mental discipline of lucid dreaming.

Any suggestions for some source material?

hmm the same thing happens to me... but i wasnt in an accident.. but my element is water and that is a trait of it...

Well, to be honest, the same thing happens to me. However, I have experienced no accidents in my lifetime.
However, not only do I experience this in my dreams. I meditate often (usually 3 times daily for 3 hours at a time, or so), and during my meditation once I tune myself out from the outside world, I begin to see images of my life...some are of the past (the most visible was my brother's car accident that killed him) and, on more occassions, I see small things in the future, though sometimes I see (not-so-large, not-so-small) things such as relationship break-ups, friends/family members funerals, and one vision of my own death
. I haven't yet learned to control these visions (I usually end up blacking out and coming to lying in the same position I began meditating in (???).

here are my theories on the topic.

#1 A head injury could cause a "stroke" like effect in which the brain's connections are ruptured and for a while the "victim" may lose memory, or mobility, or whatever, but as the brain rebuilds the pathways around the damaged area, other areas , or avenues of the brain are accessible. (i.e. '___' causes the brain to bleed, tiny ruptures of pathways, this is why it was speculated that '___' could make you smarter. also, trepidation, a technique in which a small hole is drilled in the skull, to relieve pressure on the brain or to drain blood from stroke victims. When a hole is drilled in the skull, the brain is washed in blood. The only other time the brain is washed in blood is when you're born, and only then if you're born naturally. You're supposed to feel enlightened later.

#2 Consciousness and Sub-Consciousness
I think it entirely plausible that our subconscious mind often percieves and even analyzes incomprehensible factors to give us a intuition and a gut feeling about people, i.e. bad people, and future events. Often I think it manifests its self as anxiety and racing thoughts, or multiple thoughts at the same time.

One method of realizing something that is in the sub conscious is to voluntarily lose sleep, and after a few days the conscious mind will be forced to rest causing the sub conscious mind to surface and share the attention of the individual with the conscious mind. Beware, people have went crazy from lack of sleep. Our sub conscious often stores things that our conscious mind can't handle psychologically. That is, things we know, have realized, whatever, that we are too scared, or whatever, to face consciously.

I do believe that if an individuals mind is capable of calculating the factors to predict an outcome it must be done within the sub consciousness as it would require multiple attention on multiple factors calculated simultaneously. Impossible for the conscious mind.

#3. Don't mess with you're brain. Don't do '___' as you're probably getting bull # manufactured by jethro clampet of the beverly hillbillies, and even if you're getting a pure and unadulterated product, there is no way to control where the ruptures will occur. I knew a guy who stuttered for six months after doing acid until his brain repaired its self. Don't stay up for days on end, the psychological effects are probably irreversible and there's no way to predict or control those effects.

Just a warning to anyone who would try something silly in the hopes of enhancing their mind.

Ummmmm, '___' can make you smarter? Then how come all the druggies are dumbfricks who laugh hesterically when you say Hi to them? Oh well, I don't need drugs, except for Mountain Dew, have to have it.

DO THE DEW!!!!!!!!!!!!

posted on Oct, 19 2002 @ 09:44 AM
yes why is that... we have deja vu... i mean what good is seeing the future if you dont realize it until it happens... i guess it is faith.. you have to have faith that you saw it and are looking for it when it comes....

posted on Oct, 22 2002 @ 01:38 PM
even though it wasnt until i was knocked down i did remember the future because i knew how i won the fight..... if id dreamt id lost would i have carried on to see if the dream came true?if i had faith and was certain that was the outcome......8...9......10......shake hands wish him luck .......... what i saw after that was myself realising id dreamt about what i was doing...........i was seeing myself remembering a dream.

In my dreams I usually have dreams of people dying and then a day or even hours later I find out that they really died!!
That happened with my grandpa and a really good friend of mine!
Then right after another good friend of mine died i had a dream of him. He was in a really bright light and he looked and me and said NOT too cry for him or to be sad because he was happy were he was at and that everything would be Alright!
Freaked me out!!!!

And then in ALMOST ALL of my dreams the house I am at is my grandparents old house!!! This really bugs me! Why do I ALWAYS dream of that house???? I haven't been there since they passed on but i just can't get it out of my head! I can tell you detail of how that house was and where everything was at! I haven't been inside the house for about 7 or 8 years.

Ok, people turn up dead when you dream and see them die. Here a suggestion, stop dreaming. That way they stop dieing. I know it may not cause it, but it might. Cause and effect theory.

I won a weekend in Frisco, and I suddenly stopped in my tracks as my partner and I were leaving fishermans wharf. She asked why, and it was because the view of the surroundings was exactly from a dream a few weeks earlier. In the dream I was on a boardwalk, and to my right was a landscapers truck, a white pickup with shovels, hoes, rakes etc. in the back. It was parked in the middle of the boardwalk on an angle, not lined up with or close to anything else. The spot I stopped walking was the point where I suddenly saw the same view as my earlier dream. This is one of maybe ten in my whole life, and is a very short one.

Is your life very redundant? Maybe the same types of things happen to you on a daily basis, so when you dream of them and they happen again, it seems like you predicted the future. I had a dream once that I had no clothes to wear for school. There was this one shirt that I really didn't want to wear, and in my dream I kept opening the droor, checking it, and going back to find other clothes to wear. I was late because of this. I woke up, and this actually happened to me.

Maybe a change in pace will cure your ailments

I remember a strong instance I had of deja vu it was at a huge concert and I had never been to this annual event before and when that instant happened I stopped dead in my tracks weirdest feeling I've ever had.

I have been dreaming about future events on and off for almost 30 years, so I feel that my theories on the subject are worth noting.

1) I believe that Einstein was mostly right - time is curved, all time is now, etc.

2) Lucid dreaming is great fun but can actually mess up precognitive dreaming. If you know you are dreaming you tend to act/react differently to what is going on in the dream. Later you may find that the dream that started out precognitive ended up so altered by your dream actions that it has been rendered usless (for precognitive purposes, anyway.)

3) If you don't remember your dream-come-true until it is actually coming true, then you may only be a few short steps away from having incredible precognitive abilities. You only need to work on dream recall skills, and these are not all that difficult to develop.

4) General feelings of deja vu are very different than precognitive dreams. There is an organic / psychological reason for many instances of deja vu.

5) I have never used '___'. I have never had a stroke (someone mentioned drugs and injury / illness earlier I believe). I did have a concusion at a young age and I do currently have Pseudo Tumor Cerebri. I have talked to others who are capable of precognitive dreaming and injury / drugs do not appear to be a prerequisite.

Hope these comments are beneficial to someone.
