For the past four years I've been writing down my dreams. I don't write down every single one. Sometimes I don't have time to sit down and write it
down before I forget it. Some stay in my memory for a long time, and others disappear from my memory within a few minutes. Sometimes I'm very bad at
writing them down, so even if I've had a significant one, I might let it go unwritten, and eventually it will be forgotten.
Recently I decided to go back to the beginning and read some of the dreams I had written down. I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary. As I was
reading through them, I spotted a few that seemed to come to pass. They weren't 100% spot on, but they were fairly close. It was enough to make me
wonder, but not exactly proof beyond a doubt. It could have been a coincidence.
As I continued to read them, suddenly I stumbled on one that completely floored me. This dream was described in three short sentences. At the time it
seemed so insignificant! Thinking back on it, I'm actually surprised I even wrote it down. In my dream I saw myself working in a small office
building with big glass windows, making fliers. Making fliers didn't occur to me as a dream job, or even a possibility since I had absolutely no
knowledge or experience in that field. It made no sense to me at the time, but six months later by complete chance it happened.
Five months after having that dream I came into a surprise situation where I desperately needed additional income. I was looking for full or part time
employment with anyone who was willing to hire me. I was open to anything, so I posted my resume and waited for a response. I was contacted by a
business owner who saw my work. Although my work experience was in a different field, he felt that I would work out nicely for his business. I went to
the interview not knowing what to expect or what king of responsibilities I would be given. It wasn't clarified to me until I arrived in his office.
He explained to me that his company creates and mails fliers and letters for other companies and businesses. Although my resume contained nothing that
would suggest I might be compatible with this sort of work, he felt I was a perfect fit. After a lengthy interview I was hired, and started the
following week. I was very happy to have the job. It fulfilled my need.
At that time I didn't even remember I had written down any dream in relation to this. It was two years later (one month ago from today) that I found
it and realized how incredibly accurate it was. Not only was I making fliers, but I was working in a small office building, and my office had an
entire wall of glass windows! The dream was 100% accurate, occurring a full six months before it actually happened! I still haven't a clue what to
think of it. How is it possible?
I've had other dreams that were fascinatingly close to what the future would bring me. Unfortunately it hasn't been anything significant to the
world. It's never a prediction about earthquakes, tsunamis, wars and so forth, it's usually something personal to me. When these 'prophetic'
dreams happen, there's nothing about them that would tell me they are more significant than others. Intensity or vividness doesn't seem to coincide
with how close they come to predicting anything.
One other accurate example was a dream I had a few years ago. It happened the night before a trip to Mexico. I dreamed of a giant ladybug. It was the
size of a big turtle. When I woke up I thought it was strange, but when my sister told me that she dreamed about a huge swarm of ladybugs, I shared my
dream with her and we laughed about it. As odd as that was, we went on to forget about it. Later that day we were in Mexico standing on a cliff
overlooking the ocean, when suddenly a large swarm of ladybugs filled the air around us. Some landed on our backs and shoulders, some hovered, some
continued to fly past us. I've never seen a swarm of ladybugs before. That's when I remembered our dreams. My sister's dream was more accurate,
because she dreamed of a swarm of ladybugs. I dreamed of a giant ladybug, which probably symbolized the swarm as a whole. I'd say on a scale of
accuracy, this one was at least a 7 out of 10.
While for many of you this is not solid proof of anything, I feel differently. I generally chalk things up to coincidence, but this seemingly
insignificant dream I can't toss away. It came out of nowhere, it proved to me to be extremely accurate, and I forgot about it almost as soon as I
was finished writing it down. I did not actively seek out a job in advertising, I did not have a need for that job until other outside circumstances
forced me to look for additional employment five months later,.....and I did not find it, it found me.
Where do these dreams come from? How are they possible? Are they just a massive coincidence, or proof of something else? What's the purpose of having
them when we don't recognize immediately that they are trying to tell us something? What's the point of having them? I'm trying to understand this
on a scientific level. Where do our minds wander while we sleep, and how do they do it???
Have you had 80-100% accurate prediction dreams?
