I really don't like visiting the dreams and predictions forum. I don't believe any true prophets would be posting on ATS.
I used to have disaster dreams all the time. I used to think they could be prophetic or warnings too. But, then I had so many of them that I realized
it wasn't a message at all, but just some movie-fantasy I wanted to experience haha. And that's all dreams are really, movies where we get to play the
director and the lead actor.
I even saw a vague warning about a disaster in Japan about a month before Fukushima happened. Except in my dream it was some kind of eruption like a
volcano instead of nuclear reactor. I could see people floating in the ocean gasping for help. I even heard a disembodied voice say, "This will change
humanity in a way like never before." Wow, sounds exciting and promising! But, I'm still waiting for it to happen.
Dreams are not 100% dependable or 100% accurate. They are a beautiful mystery of life to be sure! But, I don't think any disaster prophecies come from
We have to remember, dreams are just an altered state of consciousness. Could I have a prophetic dream while tripping on some cough syrup? Or would
that be dismissed as an 'altered state of consciousness'?
I have heard and seen some interesting things during meditation too--another altered state. But, I still can't invest all my faith into what I see and
I'd probably have a thread every single day if I wrote about my dreams and experiences during meditation.
I'm not saying it's impossible to have prophetic dreams as warnings and omens. But, I'm saying there is a lot of trickery involved. When we are awake
we function mostly based on logic and rationale. When we dream, there is no logic or rationale; we function on pure emotion!
It is difficult to accurately translate a purely emotional experience into the world of logic. On the other hand--I believe that emotion is a truer
form of communication than our logic and flawed words :-)
But, we are still learning how to speak that language of emotion, I think. What we dream and experience emotionally does not always translate into
words and events in the waking world of logic.
It's like trying to translate English to Japanese to Hopi and then back to English. It's not going to be 100% accurate hehe!
Okay, I will stay away from the dreams forum now that I've spoken my personal belief on it.
