Last night I dreamed about living in a castle with my family and the king. I warned them all that the river and canal that went by each side of the castle would flood and destroy everything in its path. Nobody believed me, but it did happen and we had to swim for it.
Anyhow when I finally got out of the water all I was interested in was losing my purse and bank card, even though my daughter had disappeared under the water.
My daughter has just turned 16 and has left school. This morning she brought my mail up, as I was still in bed, and I had a letter from the inland revenue (from Her Majasty) about my working tax credits, they have ended which will hit my 'purse' hard. Is this a psychic dream? Coincidence? My subconcious perhaps?

The common mistake is in believing that only some dreams have meaning while the rest are junk, a bit like DNA.
As dreams exist in the realm outside of normal time it is simply our interpretation of them that makes them predictive, or not, of ‘future’ events.
Your dream seems more an indication of stress than predictive. For example you must have been aware that your tax credits were going to end, your mind simply linked up with the letter arriving as there was already a high probability that it was going to occur.
Building of all types in dreams are representations of your state of mind. The castle in your dream probably represents your feelings of security, mental, physical and emotional. The water rising etc. are your feelings of being overwhelmed by forces outside of your control, forces which threaten your feelings of being in control and security in your life. The reason why you were more worried about your purse than your daughter was because you know that she is too young to be responsible in any way for your finances and therefore she did not need rescuing from the water (worry and stress) The fact that nobody believed you is an indication that you feel alone in your problems, that maybe others don't really understand what you are going through, and you have no one to help you out.
If you are interested in reading more of the nature of predictive dreams, and synchronistic waking time relationships to dreams, you should read J.W. Dunne's study of dreams and synchronicities.

I personally believe that most dreams are simply the brains way of storing and cataloguing information accumulated throughout the day. Basically the brain uses dreams to store away information in the form of images. For example I had been reading conspiracy articles on ATS. My friend mentioned he was going to the Odeon cinema to watch batman dark knight and during the dream, my brain simply puts all the information I've have read throughout the day into a story, which is then stored as images for easier recall of information.
