sometimes when i dream i will see a 2-3 second flash of something that will happen in the future. I have been getting them since i can remember I dont get any good info from them a clip of a conversation , someone walks into a room and says something , me hitting someone in football. I have told people about this and they always say if you have enough dreams you will see similar stuff, just your brain, ect....
my questions are
is there a way to control it? or make it happen more often.
does anyone have this same thing "flashes"

I also get a weird feeling when the dream flash comes true kinda like I get my bell rung for the length of the flash.

This is a personal opinion, I think that everyone knows the meaning and importance of their own dreams. And everyone is different. Similar scenarios and such can meaning different things depending on who you are.

One thing keeps coming back: You know what is important by the feelings that occur. They somehow feel more real, more intense. Everyone I spoke too says you have to find your own distinct way to relax and tap into what they believe is there.

Pay attention to what you FEEL you know, you'll find your way

I know exactly what you mean dude, happens to me as well.

For me it seems insignificant, its never anything important or memorable.

I too would like to learn how to enhance this though.

An example I can give is a dream I had where Im standing in my Dads backyard outside my window looking at a jukebox, I turn around and theres a big tent and flowers all over the place.
I woke up and didnt think anything of it, About 6 months later my father got married and had the wedding a his house.
The backyard was exactly like my dream.

I never know at the time it a future dream though, do you?

no I cant really pick them out , dreams jump around to much to pick out what flash will come true and that one wont.

I felt like i was alone! I have been getting this since i was a child about 8 or 9 and still to this day and now I'm 20.
Same as you they have no significance and are short maybe 15 seconds tops.
I would love to learn how to advance this "what could be an awesome ability" haha
Sometimes I dream stuff that won't happen untill years later.
I had a dream about a boy trying to chase a squirrel up a tree by while i watched from a coach bus.
About idk 3 years later I went on a class trip to Ellis Island and as we left and got back onto our coach bus me and my classmates watched a boy try to chase a SQUIRREL up a tree! I've had more but that is the one I remember the best

ok, let me state this, i never wake up knowing i have dreamed about a moment,

however i can hear see or experience something and then KNOW what the conversation, or action will hold for between 1-5 minutes. when in the moment i literally know word for word action for action what will happen.

as a kid i used to deliberately change the way things happened in my dream because i didnt like the idea of a pre-determined destiny.

i have no way to train or encourage this, it is random and is of no USE as a precognative ability. crap .. its not even testable!!!

whats worse than seeing the future, not seeing it with enough warning!!

I rarely respond to dream threads if at all, but you mentioned the future so I'll add my XP. You can and will see many time lines in the future, in dreams or awake, they are just threads of what-can-be, if you get really good at seeing these threads, you can manipulate the outcome more toward what you want, for you and those around you. This is not something to play around with or take lightly.... but your dreams are telling you something from your subconscious mind mostly.

Yeah I've had that as long as I remember too.

Seeing a particularly specific road shape and other items that I didn't see until being driven to a camping spot years later.

Last October dreaming of a brief IM conversation including the exact words used and font colours and then in late April this year having it happen exactly as I dreamt (and mentioning it at the time too because it was too weird to stay silent about)

Dreaming of Princess Diana leaning in the back of a car dead hours before I was woken by my mother with the news that Diana had died in a car accident.

Those are just three of the things I recall right now but I can't explain it.

We all exist in our own kind of "time field" with a specific level of unpredictablity that is in proportion to the wave-length of our "creative force" or "unknowingness" - there are beings on different spectrums - some have a very narrow time field because of an increaced amount of intelligence, and others are literally giants that can do and dream as they like when they are in thier own realms.

Hi my name is Chad, i have some things that might be able to answer your questions.

1. I myself and 2 of my other friends have the same sort of thing you do.
2. My question to you is, when you do see things is it like a cilp or "flash" as my friends and i call them of a future event, it might even be something minor sometimes huge.
3. I don't have dreams for me it actually happens during the day with my eyes open. My friends have the whole dream and see it deal.
4. This is my question to you, have you ever seen a black creature, monster, something that just did not seem natural..We call it "The Darkness" if you have i would love to hear what you experienced. I am trying to figure out and do research into how this "gift" works i believe that it has a lot to do with how humans only use a small percentage of their brain and as we evolve future generations will have an increased mental capability.
5. Believe it or not I think all humans are capable of the ability of "flashing" and seeing the future.
6. Don't leave hateful comments if you do not believe me then please just ignore me.
7. It is not something magical i believe there is a more mathematical and scientific approach to this "gift"
8. I have found the best way to further or increase your chance of "flashing" is emotions seem to affect it and relaxing and mediation.
9. Like i previously stated emotions play a huge role in it for me I do not know about the rest of you.
10. "The Darkness" I do not think this is something to joke lightly about if you believe then good try and help find out more about it. My friends have seen it, and for reason i have these words stuck in my head. "Times, dates, people don’t know the darkness to come the cold will show...Soon man will be at fright with all that is true and right here comes the night." maybe "The Darkness" is what give us all our power it might just be what is in the back of all humans minds, the natural fear of darkness...or maybe it is more. You Decide.

I saw the start of a war on American soil in one of my dreams.

Another dream I had I dreamed me and my girlfriend were living in this run down shack. Then one day we got stranded at the beach and the tow truck driver was nice enough to let us stay at his house for a night while we got the car repaired. It was the same shack from my dream.

One thing I think is really weird though is that sometimes I revisit the same places in my dreams and I am familiar with them from previous dreams. Places I have never been in real life.

Before I move places like to a new apartment or house, right before I fall asleep when I am in that zone between consciousness and sleep I will see where I am going to live next. It is always a front window scene. Right down to end table and curtains.

Yes, I believe you can make these dreams happen more often if you wish, but sometimes it is best not to know the future.

Start getting into meditation.
An easy way and what worked for me, was to stare at a candle flame until my mind relaxed and got into a meditative state. A psychic gave me that little tid bit many years ago and when I tried it, whoa.
State before you begin candle meditation what it is you want to accomplish, such as having dreams of the future. Say it loud and proud, and ask the powers that be to assist you in trying to learn.
Then begin your meditations.
After a series of days to weeks depending on how in tune you really are, you should start to have more and more premonitions during your sleep. They will be small things, but they will start to happen none the less. For me it was seeing my son get into things he was not supposed to, and then waking up the next morning to find what I had dreamed happened. One of the most important tools is a dream log, document your dreams.

You're not the only one, happens to me too. Most of the time the flash just gives a small insignificant "mini movie" that will play out later. Whether it is the next day, next week or a month from then. That's when the deja vu hits, I shrug it off and move on. They do tend to correspond with some of my "heavier" dreams that have more detail and are much longer. These are the ones that are filled with the emotions and the "knowing" of things that will be or have a strong indication that they will be.

Yes, been happening since I can remember.

I posted about it on page 3 of the "Creepiest Dream" thread a few places below this one currently is.

posted on Jan, 25 2012 @ 10:35 PM
I've had it happen to me many times over the decades. I'd have a dream and it would be very real, and these particular dreams you even wake up remembering them, but then they fade, and then years later you are exactly in the same position you were the dream and seeing and hearing the same things.

Sometimes you can can remember these dreams and if something bad is going to happen in the dream, you can stop it in reality before reality plays out as it did in the dream.

This has always happened to me. I know people I've never met (but then later do meet), I know places I've never been (but then later do visit), I know things I've never learned (but then later do confirm as factual).

My personal belief: Time is not a "line" as we perceive it as humans. We are only bound to time by our physical bodies. When you are asleep, your mind/soul is not bound by physical limitations. You can, therefore, see all time and travel to various points along your "timeline" with ease.

You should check out this thread: "Dreams are Travel..." - there are some very interesting stories people have posted.

You can't control it, per se, but you can learn to remember your dreams. Just start writing a dream journal. Every morning when you wake up, jot down what you can remember of your dreams. This way, when you get deja vu, you can go back and look at your corresponding dreams to see if the two events match.

For me, dreams that turn out to be true events tend to be very vivid and very memorable. They have a feeling of truth and reality to them, as if I had actually visited the place or spoke to the person.
