You know how dreams are usually kind of vague on details and mostly symbolic? Good luck in getting actual numbers or dates, right? Well one night, a boring non-significant dream was in process, and out of nowhere some man cut through a crowd off to my lower right (I was on some stage/platform with other people). I could sense him coming, he meant business. The rest of the dream faded into a backdrop, and I was suddenly lucid and very aware that I was in a dream and what was happening.
As soon as I turned towards him he said, "January 18th. Does that date mean anything to you?" In the dream I knew I should know what the date meant, but I couldn't quite grasp it. I said, "It sounds familiar to me." Then he said, "What about August 18th?" (This 2nd date kept alternating between Aug. 18 & 21.) I said, "Oh..." and started rambling to myself about any connections I could think of related to the date.
The man had already started to walk away before I even finished what I was saying. He had delivered the message he had come to give. Then the guy was just gone. The original dream resumed and came back to the forefront as if the guy had never been there.
For days afterwards I was perplexed at what the dates were about. I finally realized that everytime I thought about the dream with the man, I instantly thought of a dream I had a little awhile ago that involved a HUGE amount of water rushing through the I-405 corrider through Bellevue, WA. (And a quake that preceded it). I keep dream journals, so I went searching for it. I had the dream on Jan 16, 2010 (The man was pointing out the Jan 18th date). There are absolutely no personal connections with the date or time of year for me. So why has it been pointed out to me 2 years in a row?

Hey, I created an account JUST to reply to you because I almost fell over reading your post. I followed this thread from another forum.
I live in Bellevue, WA and for a long time I worked at the mall there. Last year and the year before I had tons and tons of dreams about floods, one specifically in Bellevue at the mall there, the water was as tall as the parking structure, it was devestating. It also took away my cats (sadly, they did pass away after these dreams). So anyway, I just thought it was really strange that you mentioned you also had a flood dream about Bellevue.
posted on 10-10-2011 @ 01:35 PM this post Last night I dreamed about earthquakes. That may seem like a no-brainer since I talk about them all the time, but in reality I rarely ever dream about them, especially not specifics. SO...thought I may as well document it here.
In my dream, I was with my husband in our 5th wheel and I had the sense that I was somewhere south...either Oregon or California. All I know is that I wasn't home, but close enough to think that if I felt a quake there it could have affected my home in Washington.
So in the dream everything starts shaking. It's a slow build-up, which told me right away that it was a large quake. Just as the shaking got violent, it was replaced with the rolling motion. I have experienced this twice before. A 6.5 while vacationing at disneyland and the 6.7 here in Washington about 12 yrs ago. So anyways, the rolling got more and more pronounced and I saw a power pole snap in half just outside the window. I wasn't scared until then. I never reacted with fear the other times I was really in a quake too....I find it fascinating first and then the fear eventually hits me. In my dream though, the fear came with the realization that perhaps I wasn't at the epicenter of a large quake, but the outer reaches of a mega quakes and I thought of my kids.
I got on my android phone and began searching for the quake info. In my dream, I was trying to scroll across a map of the states. It was frustrating because in my panic I just wasn't doing it right. I remember seeing all sorts of quakes listed in black on the map. I ignored the small ones, looking for only the big numbers. I saw a 7.7 and a 7.2 (which were near my location....) and scrolled up to Washington where in red on the NW coast was a 6.8 quite near my home. I was crying and trying to dial my home number when I woke up.
So...make of it what you want. Like I said, I don't normally dream of quakes, and if I do they are vague without such specifics as magnitudes and locations. A 6.8 in my area could be bad, but certainly nowhere near a mega. Also, it was on land, so it would come from one of the many faults around here, vs the subduction zone. I am more interested in the 7.7, 7.2 and other multiple quakes I scrolled past. This scenario goes along with mine and some others theories about a chain reaction setting off multiple large quakes along the coast.
I didn't have a sense of when this quake was....only that it was soon. When I first woke up, I felt a need to warn people right away. I held back for awhile though to see if that feeling went away. It has faded a bit, but obviously isn't gone.
