First, be sure to tell your son, NO red sweaters.
I tend to believe that premonitions are possible, but the normal "true" premonition seldom lets you figure out what anything is about, until after
it has happened. Some say that deja-vu may be a product of something like this.
My grandmother had such "dreams", and she never could figure out what they meant, until something happened that explained it. By that time, it was
"too late" for anything to change.
One of her sisters had a nervous breakdown, so bad, she was hospitalized, basically "lost her mind" (for a while). A year before, my grandmother
had a dream about "the devil" (she was very religious) stealing all the books out of her sister's home, leaving behind empty shelves. Not until
the hospitalization did she connect the dream, with what happened, seeing some symbolism.
Another kind, maybe closer to what you have described, doesn't seem to bother with symbolism, it can be direct. And yet, still just as "unusable".
My grandmother had a recurring dream of being at a funeral. Vivid details, the people attending the funeral, her daughter at her side. Over and
over, she would try to "figure out" who it was that was in the coffin, but just couldn't figure it out.
Not until she was in that church a few years later, at her son's
funeral did she suddenly realize that everything was the exact same as her
dream. Very big deja-vu, but in the worst way! The "one" thing she never did in her dream, was look down at her other side to see if her son was
standing next to her. She never noticed he was missing. Of course, the mere thought that he could die must have been too much for her to handle.
Was this a "message" from the future? If so, why? She was completely unable to "change" the future, and yet she perhaps got this info for some
reason, you would suppose, if this was real. Maybe as as a sort of "kindly" emotional preparation. (Her son died at 12 years old, leukemia, back
in those days it was not curable.)
Somehow this almost makes sense, that if there was true info from the future, it would never be able to change anything, therefore eliminating any
paradox. But it's all rather strange to think about, and might imply some grand intelligence, or god, who would be running such a show.
I also think the mind plays many tricks on us, and we can interpret anything, so many different ways.
So, bottom line, no reason for concern. It would seem that if there is any reality to this kind of thing, there isn't much people can do about it,
and on a positive note, such experiences may play a part in "preparing" us in some way, to get through what's ahead.
