Can Deja Vu and Dreams Come True in Real Life?

Author:

I have been an online writer for over nine years. My articles often focus on dreams and dream interpretation.

Can your dreams actually come true? Read on to find out.

Dreams can and do come true. But, it is a bit more complex than you may think. For many (who have not yet experienced dreams coming true) this phenomenon can be confusing. How is it possible for dreams to come true? I've never had a premonition, do they really exist?

Yes, they really do exist. Having my own psychic dream experience (that was full of revelations), I can truly say that my ideas about dreaming changed forever.

Do Dreams Come True?

Dreams can tell us a lot about our lives, as they show us a glimpse of the untapped knowledge that hides in our subconscious. While many dismiss dreams as nothing more than fantasy, they offer another look at the world. Dreams convey real emotions and real situations as they reflect our current life situation.

So, dreams don't always come true, but they contain certain truths that need to be examined.

A precognitive dream is one where you foresee the future.

What Is It Called When You Dream About the Future?

Precognitive dreams are ones that are predictive of the future, where you see something happening to you, and then a short time after it happens to you in the real world. This is exactly what happened to me, and it was a combination of precognitive dreaming and Deja Vu.

Deja Vu When Dreaming

Deja Vu is the feeling you get when you experience something for the first time, yet it feels familiar, like matching the piece of a "puzzle" to its rightful position, in the sense that every sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, thought, feeling, and sensation of existence is completely identical to the lost memory, even if just for a second.

Scientists have tried to figure out an explanation for Deja Vu, but at this point, they have yet to figure out the exact reason why the phenomenon occurs. Some people reason this away as a glitch of the mind: subconscious memories that were trapped and are now resurfacing. And that may very well be true, in a sense. If we knew where these memories were originating from, we could discover exactly what deja vu is.

Deja Vu Is a Lost Prediction

As stated, one theory about Deja Vu is that it is simply a manifestation of the subconscious mind. That being said, take into consideration that while sleeping and dreaming, the subconscious mind runs rampant. This is what dreams are made of.

Sometimes we remember our dreams, and sometimes in great detail, like a dream I had about being fired. When I had Deja Vu about my dream, later on, that was simply my mind remembering the dream. I was aware of the dream because I remembered it when I woke up. But we do not remember all of our dreams. Since dreams can be predictions and come true, wouldn't it be reasonable to suggest that we can have these "predictions," or dreams, and then wake up the next morning without recalling them?

This leads me to my theory: Deja Vu is the subconscious mind recalling a dream that our conscious minds did not recall. It seems highly possible that deja vu could be a prediction from a dream that you don't remember having or a lost prediction.

Deja Vu Dreams (Deja Reve)

Deja Reve is a French term meaning "already dreamed," and it can be thought of as the opposite of lucid dreaming. Deja Reve is the feeling you get when you find yourself in a situation that makes you feel as if you dreamed about it previously, that you dreamed you would be there. Many people claim they have these prophetic dreams weeks or years in advance.

Deja Reve means "already dreamed."

My Dream Came True? Well, Not Exactly.

It happened a couple of years back when I was working through school at a local restaurant. Dreaming about losing my job was never my ideal prediction, I would have much preferred winning the lottery. Nonetheless, this is what happened.

The Dream

I dreamt I was at work, standing in a distinct location of the restaurant. This strange feeling swept over me, and I was hit with an intuitive understanding that I was going to be fired.

A co-worker of mine approached me, and we engaged in conversation about my job status. I then asked her why I was fired. She replied, explaining that the boss's wife was jealous of me and did not want me working there. I woke up, this dream vivid in my mind. It was so realistic and detailed; it lingered in my mind days afterward.

This may be a good time to note that my boss's wife did bartend at the restaurant in real life so that being the reason I was fired is not a far-fetched theory. I was scheduled to work again a couple of days after this dream. I went in that day not vaguely prepared for what would happen next.

In Reality

For whatever reason it was, I went to the distinctive location in the restaurant that I went to in my dream, and all of a sudden I felt like a piece of a puzzle that was put in its place. Every detail, every sensation, every inch of my surroundings, perfectly mimicked my dream. This brought on the most intense and overwhelming rush of Deja Vu that I have yet to experience in my life. I must have looked like I was seeing a ghost or maybe even losing my mind, because at that point in time everything for me froze as my feeble brain scrambled to make sense of it. This was it; I was to be fired!

Remembering how I had spoken to my coworker in my dream, I approached her, as she just so happened to be scheduled to work with me that night. I was so shocked by my recent revelation that I needed to reach out to someone, and who better than the coworker from my dream, maybe she could give me some more answers. I told her with grave seriousness that I was going to get fired that night. She looked puzzled but started rattling off jobs that she could help me find "if" I were to be fired.

Sure enough, what was inevitable had played out. I left that night for the last time, jobless. Having absolutely no doubt that this dream was a precise prediction of the future, I also have no doubt that the boss's wife being jealous of me was the reason it happened. But the most important thing to be learned from this story is how Deja Vu and dream premonitions are interlinked.

Life Is But a Dream

I never in a million years would have been able to come up with this theory that links dreams and Deja Vu, if not for experiencing it firsthand. The fact that it happened to me is the only real evidence I have to prove this, and too bad it is not tangible. But it makes a lot of sense if you think about it enough. And what's amazing is that it proves dreams can be predictions!

Imagine the thousands of things you could be predicting every night, and just forgetting about, since we can't remember all of our dreams!

Next time you have Deja Vu, embrace the fact that you have psychic powers, because you predicted something in a dream. We all have amazing abilities, sometimes we just forget them (In this case, literally). We can't remember every dream, but practicing dream recall is a great way to harness our powers of prediction.

The power of the mind is astonishing, and I hope to provide more insights into it. I have a premonition that I will.

I've had plenty of dreams and they were all real. I was a resident of Jupiter's moon IO I seen what IO looked like before it is today it had mountains and was very beautiful but because of Jupiter's grasp of IO people panicked and got off the IO except me and other people we are the ones who stayed behind.

I was here once before and I'm doing the same miserable thing I was doing before in another lifetime.

I was with Adam and Eve if you can believe this one even Eve seen me asked me who i am and where did i come from so I told her i'm one of your children from the future and it doesn't look to very good she looked at me with a sad look on her face but Adam seen her talking with me he held her hand and was ready to take her away but then Adam asked me where did I come from so I even told him I'm from the future he told me to go back to where You came from I told him how can I do that he said to me what was you doing before you came here I told him i was sleeping then he said wake up and they left but Eve keep looking behind her at me.

The last thing I know I was once an angel.

Dear Kyle UK 22,

I completely understand where you're coming from. I try to find answers and all I get in response is ignorance and closed mindedness. For me it is mind boggling. The one question that keeps popping up in me is : Why? Why me?

Kye UK 22 on May 16, 2020:

I feel stupid for coming on here but oh well, i just want answers and if i can't find it then surely if i post it someone might answer.

I have these precognetive dreams at least twice a month, but mine aren't just sleeping dreams. Mine can a day dream or even a 10 second faze of me just thinking about a situation. So many people have said that their dreams don't happen "perfectly" to real life, but mine do and everytime it does my heart slows down and i get shivers because i just start thinking of everything that was going to happen next, because i knew what was going to happen next up until the dream stops.

When these happen, half the time I don't realise that it happened and the other half I just think "eh if it happens, it happens" because I've gotten so used to them. Sometimes it could happen the same day and I had one that happened 1 year after on the exact same date. It is scary and i do feel weird just talking about it. But just know that it is a thing and I believe it's an evolution thing that hasn't fully developed yet, but know one will open up about it because people will think their crazy.

Here is 1 dream of so many that happened. I write them the minute I have my dreams and then write down whether they happen after.

Dream 11/12/2019

This was a quick 10 second daze when i was working. "I am walking down the road next to the harvester with my sister and foster brother, i am wearing my dark skinny jeans and a white top that i don't recognise. My foster brother is behind me and my sister is to the left of me, we are on the left side of the road. My sister is wearing a black running top and black leggins. We are talking about the avengers and why she needs to watch thor?"

Reality 24/4/2020

Up to this point, we are in isolation due to Covid-19 and i convinced my mum and sister to watch all the marvel films for the first time. We are allowed to do 1 hour outdoor exercise a day "I am walking down the exact road just past the harvester, i am wearing my dark skinny jeans and a white top that my mum got me for Christmas. My foster brother was behind me, my sister was to my left wearing a black running top and black leggins, we are walking on the left side of the road. We had watched spiderman homecoming the night before and was explaining to my sister as to why we need to thor ragnarok as it links to infinity war."

Thing is, me and my sister never walk together nor do we walk with my foster brother as well. Not only that but we were walking past harvester, which i never walk past as we never need to go down that street. We just walked down there coz we needed to go for a walk for an hour. I was wearing a top that I didn't even know i was getting (i didn't recognize the top when i got it for Christmas), i never talked to my sister about the avengers as she never gave a shit and what are the chances of all of that happening in a dream and the exact scenario happens in real life.

I do feel stupid saying this and if anyone asks me about my dreams that happened i would be open about it, but in the Society we live in, it just wouldn't be accepted and i would be treated like a phsyco.

staying private sorry on May 13, 2020:

well I'm only 10 but anyway I rarely remember my dreams but sometimes I dream something that's not really important like cleaning a chopped up tree (I have a huge family) and then when I wake up I remember it so... SO clearly... and then it comes true the quickest time it comes true is in a few hours the longest was in a week no one else in my family has this so I don't know what to do! *shrug* help?

Sheersh Jindal on May 02, 2020:

I have had Dena Reve a few times before but not exactly as I dreamt. For eg. If I dreamt that I am standing outside my house and 2 dogs would bite me. After a few weeks it happened in reality but I was just not bitten by them.

I know this sounds completely ridiculous but I had a dream about Cameron Boyce the night he died it was a guest scene he made in good luck Charlie in a top hat at suit however the next morning I went on to snapchat.to find out he died that very night. I also had a dream about a character in a soap opera I watched who dies after being pushed/chucked down the stairs in a basement it wasn't exactly the same because it was a different person who killed him (when it actually happened) but they were both at the top of the stairs and it happened in the soap months later. Lastly I had a dream about my dad telling me my mum ex had died months ago no details that was it but about 9 months later he tells me the exact same thing in the same place in the living room. I just don't understand how can I predict something like that without a answer behind it how am I capable of something like that.

Vanessa on March 21, 2020:

When you say a dream come true does that mean that it is your dream, or a dream that you had? I have had those cases of deja vu a few times. When someone says or does something and I react in the way that I did in the dream to what they said or did. Oh, and are you able to make yourself have dreams or make yourself experience deja vu? Or is it just a coincident? Oh, and one time I was looking at my grandpa's 50th anniversary picture and signings. Then suddenly there was a flash of memory of a dream or something that I don't remember happening. I was on the beach and I saw some sort of strange small building. I went up the hill to see what it was. I went to knock on the door and it just opened. I went inside and saw someone sitting by the fireplace. Then they turned around and said, 'When the time comes, he'll tell you." Then they pushed me down a well. Then a couple of days later, I found a picture of the same exact building that I saw in my "memory". I haven't even seen the picture before then that happened and it freaked me out.

Leslie haskins on March 03, 2020:

Ive had dreams in my adolesent years. Or shall i say visions in my early years when i was sleeping. Years later sometimes months i would be in a situation or a place and look around and see the same surrounds i had in my dreams. This has happened throughout my whole life. Still occuring till this day. Its actually kinda scary. Being able to see things in dreams before they happen. Ive tried to share with others but most laugh thinking "he's crazy" so i just keep it to myself now. Its real i now take heed to ALL MY DREAMS!! I BELIEVE IN GOD TO THE FULLEST. ITS LIKE MY LIFE/MY FUTURE HAS BEEN REVEALED TO ME IN MY DREAMS ALREADY!!

Heather vega on December 31, 2019:

Im trying to understand my dream my dream ive never had this dream before i was dreaming i had bleeding worse then a menstrual period .. im literally 19 days late. Besides the point. I woke up spotting still haven't got no period. Im so confused. i wish i can understand. maybe a sign of some kind

Sorry if it was a nasty topic im not trying to be rude.

Conah on December 17, 2019:

Hi. Recently I had a dream that me and my girlfriend where in McDonalds eating lunch, and yes that's a very weak dream to have. However, the exact situation literally just happened, everything was exactly the same, the way i felt, people's positioning, you name it it was exactly the same. I asked her if we had ever been in this exact situation before and she said no, so i knew it was a dream. Similarly to this I've had a recurring dream that a run into a burning building to save a women that i don't recognize from Room 207, and look down at her and i feel that she means everything to me and that nothing matters except that she's ok. I had this dream first at the age 12, and because a few of my dreams have come true (these dreams felt real as well in the dream itself), I'm worried that the dream of saving this women will come true someday, could this be a form of predicting my own future? An idea of destiny and a set path? Im not sure, but I'm glad to have found people with similar situations.

Laci on December 12, 2019:

I have had differant abilities i cant explain after dying for over 4 minutes. I have dreams that come to reality for myself and loved ones that are serious

Why

angelica on December 11, 2019:

Many times i have dreams about people I know and some i do not. But every time i dream about someone i know i do my best to contact that person to see if everything is ok and majority of the time said person is usually in a situation or not doing so well so what does this mean?

Sini on December 03, 2019:

Some dreams of mine is coming true....To be more precise, things what happening is what I saw earlier in my dreams..I believe Essence of life is in the suspense it holds..What if we know everything earlier before it happens naturally..I am afraid..Why is these things happening with me..? Do I need some treatment..?

it is just as passing memory from the past that happen in the present ?or it just a dream that should he ignore if its come true.l?

Lynaya on November 18, 2019:

Hi, I was just wondering, ive been havibg these kinds of dream stuff for the passed few years and, quite recently, I've found that's they haven't really been occurring that often. I was wondering if maybe they've finally stopped possibly, or is this a little like a rising action in a novel?

Jess on October 27, 2019:

I had a dream that my soon to be mother in law had bought a sprinkler for the kids it was for the summer came. But they didn't want the kids to know. I've had a few dreams in the past year of this. Today she came home and she had bought the exact same sprinkler in my dream. I was confused because it looked really familiar to me but I couldn't think of why till I realized I had seen it in my dream before.

Hi on September 24, 2019:

My dream happened at school I had a dream about how I was talking to my friend and she’s telling me about how her and my friend were dating and it came true that same day but the drea, was the last night before it happened

Anonymous on September 14, 2019:

My dream came true I had a dream a friend of mine who street performs was busking over in New York City now purely coincidental but the strange thing happened not long after I saw a photo of him in New York exactly like that on Facebook which someone photo shopped him and then when I next saw him he said it had not happened yet and also he was wearing the clothes I saw him in the dream wearing. Not only that he has actually done it for real now exactly like how I saw him in the middle of Times Square New York City wearing the exact same clothes and when he launched his latest film he was wearing them as well and now I hope to dream of him and the winning lotto numbers so I can tell him and all my other mates what they are haha!

Jace on August 30, 2019:

Around two years ago I had a dream concerning a girl who I had never seen before. Yesterday, that dream came true, word for word. She said the exact same things I dreamt of and looked exactly the same way. Before I started talking to her I had a strange feeling about her, like as if I remembered her. And, despite my horrible social anxiety about talking to strangers, when I spoke to her it was like as if I had known her for years. I don’t know why but she seemed the same way and we are friends now. However, every few times we talk she or I say something or have a short conversation that I somehow remember as if it’s from a distant memory. It’s the strangest thing.

Subject: The Cameo Ring That Went Missing.

My sister’s cameo ring went missing when I was 18 years old. The last time she saw it was the day before in her jewelry box.

The Dream: One night I dreamt that I was knocking on two friends of mine’s front door early one morning. They had only been married for a few months and both were in their 20’s. I worked with each of them at a restaurant bar and grill. Kim and I were waiters and her husband, Robert was the manager.

As I knocked, Robert came to the door. He had just gotten out of the shower. His hair was wet and he had a towel around him. He told me to come in and have a seat. He said Kim was still in bed asleep. While he went back into the bathroom to dry his hair and finish getting dressed, in my dream I got up, walked into their bedroom and saw Kim asleep on her stomach with a pillow over her head. I went over to her dresser and opened a small three tier jewelry box on her dresser. It had two small little French doors in the middle and 3 drawers. I opened the first one, then the second and after I opened the 3rd one there sat my sister’s ring. I took it and slipped it into my pocket then left. I said nothing to no one.

The Morning After:

I awoke and my dad was cooking breakfast. It was around 7am on a Sunday morning. I couldn’t get that dream out of my mind. It was so real. Every tiny detail I remembered. I got my keys, got into the car and drove over to Robert and Kim’s apartment. When I got there it seemed as though I was back in my dream. Everything was identical to what I had dreamt. Where I parked, specific cars, everything. As I knocked on their door Robert answered. Had I been looking in a mirror I can imagine that I was white as a ghost. He opened the door with a towel around him and his hair was dripping wet. He told me to come in. Just the way he said it sent chills up my spine. I just lived this. This was no joke. I was very confused. I really couldn’t understand what was going on. How could this be? When he went back into the bathroom I hurried as fast as I could to see if that ring was really going to be there. Kim was laying exactly as she was in my dream only hours earlier. I was so nervous. I was afraid Robert was going to step out and find me not only in their bedroom but going through Kim’s things. When I opened the last drawer to her jewelry box the ring wasn’t there. I just stood there frozen. How could this be. Everything else was a carbon copy of exactly what I had dreamt. I opened the middle drawer. No ring. Then I opened the top one and there it sat. I couldn’t believe it. Well I could but I couldn’t. I didn’t know what to think. But I grabbed that ring and got the hell out of there. Oh, I confronted Kim about it and all and finally learned she had stole it one day when she was over swimming and was changing in my sister’s room. I wrapped that ring up and put it under the Christmas tree for my sister. That ring meant a lot to her. It was my great grandmother’s who came over from Scotland.

Dreams do indeed come true. This was one of several like this in my lifetime. I wish that I had more control over them and could use them to my advantage.

anon on August 15, 2019:

Hi, I just really wanna ask this because it always keeps bugging my mind. So what if you're imagining things and It became real. Like I'm imagining my idol sitting with me in a train ride or seeing him looking at me in a concert even though I'm not in that concert. Then seeing him in this video with everything that I imagine him being with me. It became real like he saw me imagining him.. Am I just being to much? But It really became real.

Chloe on May 28, 2019:

1. I had a dream I won the prize draw at my school and the next day it happened.

2. My mum had a call from my sisters friends mum telling her something bad happened and I ‘saw’ what happened: her cat was run over and killed. I didn’t know what had happened until the call finished.

3. I had dreamt the events of the Manchester Bombing the exact time it started, it was horrific to hear in the morning what had happened and I felt sick to my stomach.

Irma. on May 15, 2019:

I noticed no one on here mentions that dreams were sent to people from God as recorded in the Bible! Also they would be sent to us in what’s called the end times ! I have had dreams that come true since I was six years old , they have matured as I have gotten older ( 67).

Holly on April 28, 2019:

I dreamt that I was standing in a room with burgundy carpet and pinkish wallpaper with flowers on it. I was talking with my fiance and 2 friends who are brothers that we hadn't seen in years. And one guy in a white shirt that I didn't recognize. We were standing in a semi circle just talking about old times.

I woke up and told my fiance about how weird it was to have such an odd dream about those people.

2 weeks later my son's father (my ex) passed away. We were at the funeral home for the viewing and here we were standing with the brothers and the guy with the white shirt. I grabbed hold of my fiance arm and said oh my God.. remember the dream I told you about. He got goosebumps and we were both freaking out. I pointed out the carpet and wallpaper and the other friends. I just wish I would have known before what I was seeing in my dream, I could have warned my son's dad.

6 months later I told one of my best friends I had a dream with her son, she joked that it's gross to have dreams about her son..I told her it wasn't that kind of dream and that maybe she was getting something good for Christmas because we were at her work with a purple bag and a pink tag with her name on it. 2 weeks later she was murdered, and when her son and I went to pick up her things at her work they had put them in a purple crown Royal bag with a pink tag with her name on it.

I wanted to throw up. How could I dream these things and not know what they meant. The dreams themselves never even made me feel like something bad would happen.

Max on April 23, 2019:

The first one I remember was simple, like staring down at the grass. It would happen about 6 months later when I was in 5th grade. It happened during a fire drill on a warm beautiful late spring day. The next one came to be about 2 months ago after I dreamed it a handful of years ago while I was still in high school. I Was reading my email and I got a message from a man (who is now my science professor) thanking me for turning in a test, saying I got a 100!! Sure enough, it happened! This is the first 100 I've gotten in a while, and really seems to be inspiring me to do better! On the flip side, when I was 10 I had a nightmare about my mother yelling at me to remove a chicken from under the porch that had died weeks ago as the house began to reek of death/rotting meat, saying it wasn't a big deal, get over myself, etc. before she crawled under there and got it, tossing it out making me yelp in fear. Sure enough when I was around 14, this came true. The house smelled the same and I threw up. Not because of the smell, I was used to it having lived with animals and having seen death. I vomited due to nerves because I knew the time was coming, and I am nercophobic.

Don't want this "gift" on April 04, 2019:

I take meds to help me stop dreaming about such things. It's not always a gift. When you dream of the future and it always comes true you start to see it as a curse. They're too vivid and too intense. I used to wake up screaming from these dreams, getting very little to no sleep. I would dream of people I knew, people I only just met, people I barely knew, and people I didn't know at all. I had car accident dreams, one of which my boyfriend at the time somehow walked away from though his car was totaled and unrecognizable. I dreampt about my husband driving with me and our young children in the car. A drunk driver crossed the median, hit us head on, and killed us all in my dream. When it happened I told my husband to go home the opposite way. I was very forceful about it as he didn't want to listen at first. I screamed at him and practically yanked the wheel. He must have thought I was crazy. After reading a news article from our local station then he told me that a drunk driver killed a woman after he crossed the median and hit her head on. He was as white as a ghost with all color drained from his face. He told me we would have been there at the exact same time he crossed the median if I hadn't told him to go another way. While the meds help tone it down so I can sleep, it's impossible to stop them all, especially the strong ones. Let me be very clear. I do not wish to see the future in my dreams, nor do I try to do so. It has been something that has always just happened to me.

I am a girl, a teenage girl. I am so glad that I'm as safe dreaming as them coz now I knew that I'm not the only person dreaming of such things then it comes true. It did happened that I dreamt of things then it did happened, like I was dreaming of me and my cousins talking about buying water then he suddenly asked if I got the money already, then fee days after it really did happened. It happened alot to me. Dreaming about something then it came true. Sometimes I felt something in my heart when what I dreamt was happening, something like I was so nervous about it. I don't even know why. It freaks me out sometimes.

Lana on March 21, 2019:

About two years ago i had a dream and it felt so real cause i could see everything so clearly. In the dream, I was a little older and i was wearing a new bright purple track suit and i was holding a brand new bitton (for track). The weird thing was is that our school isnt rich enough to by all these new things. So through the next 2 years for some reason, it was always on the back of my mind. Then finally last month my coach came u pt obe a showed me a new batton , it look exactly like the same one from my dream. I froze and remembered my dream and i told him " wow i had a dream about this batton " . A month later my friend who is also on the track team with me hands me a bright purple jersey that looks exactly like the one from my dream and her exact words were " Here you go, these are ours new jerseys."

Dikiah on March 01, 2019:

I am an Empath. And I dream realities a lot. They come true anytime from 1 day to 1 year after it happens. I don’t remember them when I wake up in the morning, and I forget to write them down when I wake up from them around 3 am every morning. But I’ve seen almost every day of my future for the next year. Not big events. Small things. Visiting family, making friends who’s faces I’ve mever seen before but who I meet weeks later, I once dreamed I was making out with a boy in a bathroom, 2 days later in real life he shows up at my work. Same guy. Never seen him before. But it happens a lot. Almost every night. I’ve been searching for wiccan spells to make them more clear and also to help me sleep through the night and remember the morning what I dream of. To kind of sharpen my brain to being awake enough to remember while I’m asleep.

skylar on February 27, 2019:

I had a dream and i even remember this dream cause i even looked up if zodiacs can have superpowers and it said mine was seeing the future. well my dream was i was at school standing behind all my group members as they sat. we were all coping stuff on our computers. but i even dreamt of what conversations they were having. latter on it.

joyce on February 10, 2019:

I have dreams that come true, approximately nine months after i dream them. This has been going on since i was 12 years old. My mother had these same types of dreams. Water means death - depending on if and how much water is on me. I dreamed of a tiny baby face down in water short dark hair. Several months later my daughter in law had a still born daughter with short dark hair. I began, after that dream, keeping a record. This is just one dream, I have many other examples. I am waiting now for November 1 to 15. Not sure who but not close to me personally but close to someone I am close to. A male (thick bodied) climbs and goes down a slide - i am upset because i sense he has been tricked. He goes underwater and i am upset because he does not come up like I feel he should - he must have dark hair - another man is close by - he is waist deep in water - I do not know him at all and he begins to go toward the one who is under water to help him. END OF DREAM Just before this dream my grandson sits at a table. I do not believe it is my grandson but one of 2 men. My ex son-in -law which is grandson's father or my grandson's new stepfather. We will see first half of November.

Dale. on February 06, 2019:

Long story short. I tried to lucid dream one time, and since thwn i havemt been able to rwmember my dreams. 6 years later to about a month ago I had a dream. I was some where i had never been and i was going all around seeing things i have never seen before. I could feel in the dream that i was floating/ hovering around this strange place and i had a friend with me. I remember seeing buildings and statutes and a beach. 3 weeks later my dad went to a town he had never been before with a friend and took the trolley around town learning the history. Family story, my great aunt read fortunes and palms 50 years ago. My mom could feel energies, and i feel like i can too.. my mom passed away 3 months ago and the night i dreamed was the first night i slept with her pillow.

Darkness on February 05, 2019:

I have had a couple of dreams / nightmares if you will that saved my life and could have saved my best friend's too if i took it seriously enough. I won't go into complete details I'll run out of room.

1st One

I dreamed i was pregnant and gave birth to twin boys. After putting them down to sleep and checking on them several times as a nervous mom of two would. I fell asleep for a short while. I woke in a panic not knowing how long I was sleeping ran to their room to check on them and as I laid my hand upon the first one he felt cool, I slid my hand up his back to check his cheek and he was ice cold and not breathing. I hurried to the other but before I was able to touch him I woke from my dream. I made an appointment with my OBGYN and I was pregnant not only was i pregnant it was ectopic one. I was sent to the the hospital for an internal ultra-sound because they couldn't see anything with the regular one but my blood test came back positive. I never left the hospital that day I rushed into surgery as my tube was about to burst. The dr. asked me how I even walked in there on my own two feet. How I knew something was wrong if there was no pain... I believe my children saved my life by making me have that awful dream. That was back in 2002 and i remember as clear today as if I had it last night.

2nd one

I lost touch with my best friend (guy) for a bit because I started to have feelings for him and it was honestly just a friends with benefits thing we were never supposed to get involved..why.. because you ruin friendships that way. Hence me pulling away but anyway during that time I had met my now Husband and kept the distance there. We phoned each other and kept in touch but not like we used to. One night I had this horrible dream that he was dying and no matter what i did or how I tried I just couldn't get to him. Something stopped me , something was i the way, each time I got closer he went further but yet not moving from the spot he was in. It was so intense and so vivid I woke up breathing heavy and sweating. The next day I looked everywhere for his number but couldn't find it. My cell phone had died I could call out if I knew the number but the screen was black so I couldn't see my contacts. I went to my computer and prayed he still used the same email. I wrote to him begging him to get in touch with me so I knew he was ok and explained to him why. He did, and we talked everything seemed to be ok. Now If I had insisted he go to the dr. like I did, which he probably would have just said ok to please me. I may have saved his life .. My best friend died of a stroke the next month. at 47 yrs old. I believe in my heart that was a sign and I will regret it until the day I die that I didn't take it more seriously.

So please if anyone reads this and has dreams like this don't brush them aside. It is better safe then sorry.

Weird girl on February 02, 2019:

I used to have these twice a week when I was in middle school. It was very confusing. I had a hard time telling reality from dreams or Deja vu. Now I just have them every once in a while like everyone else.

Clive on January 22, 2019:

I dreamed of a stranger, a woman of around 25, specific creme crepe dress with large floral pattern, shoulder length brown hair and left arm amputated below elbow. I past her, in the dream in close proximity, and in a crowd.

11 hours later, that’s EXACTLY what happened.

Abrian on January 21, 2019:

This had happened to me the detials are not as clear but when i was 7 or 10 i had a dream of standing on the side of a football field with a board in front of me with about 5 or 7 other people to the side of me the dream was blurry and grayed out but in 2018 when i was in marching band the same thing played out i was on the side of a football field and in front of me was my prop for the halftime show we did and to the side of me was 13 other props

Tony on January 15, 2019:

I have dreams like this all the time... I think you described it in your article as a "precognitive dream". But the thing is, it happens more often than I really like. And it's always the most miniscule things (i.e. my taxi driver talking to me about a bush lady that lives in my home town). Is it normal to have so many of these types of dreams?

Jose on January 15, 2019:

My sister came to me in a dream say that her husban was becomeing abusive with her i ask her what she want me to do she said nothing for now she drives away. And rolls over in her jeep and dies The next day my my parents and girlfriend and myself drive to a town in baja mexico for my girlfriends birthday I ask my mom if she had spoken to my sister she said no and then ask me why i told her about the dream this happen at 11am we spend the whole day in baja on the way all are cell phones had die as we pull up to the house see people hang out around the house as we get to the front door my brother is standing there and tells us that my sister was in a accident and was kill this happen at 11am the same time i had ask my mom if she had talk to her. Its been 13 years that she past away and there hasnt been a day where i blame myself for this event i ask myself what i could have done to prevent this from happening

Hunter on January 13, 2019:

I had a dream and 3 weeks later it came true i only remember having it because of a door slam in the dream

Marcel on January 10, 2019:

I seem to have dreams that in some ways predict things that will eventually happen in the future and just had one two months ago that came true and possibly one just recently that could also be a precognitive dream as well, but I am not sure and need clarification as to wether or not it was another premonition.

Long story short, me and my lady friend of seven months had a bad falling out two months ago to a point to where she was very cold towards me and wanted nothing to do with me. This went on for three weeks until I had a dream about her sending me a message through text with the word “Likely”. Two other dreams of us reconnecting also followed as well. Then after a month of her blowing me off, we started talking again finally settled our differences. It turned out that the dream I had may have been a precognitive and premonition dream.

Faster forward to a month later. Me and my lady friend become at odds with each other again a week before Christmas due to her being stressed out from her job and Christmas shopping. She began taking her problems out on me with having a nasty attitude and not caring how I felt about It and we fell out over it. Then on Christmas eve I thought it would be a good idea if I dropped off her Christmas gift at her sisters, she was there at her sisters house unexpectedly. So I have her Christmas gift to her directly then went about my business. Two hours later she messaged me telling me how rude and uncomfortable it was by me doing that and to never talk to her again. I was upset over that for two weeks I beg and pleaded with her through text message over the situation and she still would not budge. It then became more intense to where we both shared harsh words and said hateful things towards each other. She then threaten me with the cops and a restraining order and then I left her alone.

Several days after our last conversation, I had a dream of me and her both hanging out as friends a again and she had finally met some of my family. We were both in good spirits and we’re happy to be hanging out again. Also in the dream, me and her both had to climb a ladder to get to the upstairs of a house of one of my family members. We made to the upstairs and then became intimate with each other. It was a random dream and I am trying figure out if it was another precognitive dream or another premonition dream like I had before. I need some help and input ???

Thing on December 24, 2018:

This is a weird dream but I will tell you anyways. So I am trying to look for where the candy is that my mother placed in the candy calendar for December (like the bag) and I checked a few places but no luck. I went to sleep and I dreamt of going into my living room and opening a cabinet door that had candy that I was unaware of (it was for the stockings for Christmas). When I woke up I remembered the dream and went to the cabinet and opened it, wasn’t exactly there it was in the Droars. Point being the dream showed me where candy was (not the one I was exactly looking for but maybe it was in there?). It’s definitely a weird dream but it’s pretty cool that I gained information from a dream.

Wingz on December 13, 2018:

My dreams come true VERY often, lets just say that.

Al on December 06, 2018:

I've had a similar experience. I was working in a hotel room cleaning up large pieces of drywall when the owner of the hotel pulled me out to help him with a leak that was pouring out upstairs. That very situation happened. I was working in the same room, the same person asked for my help, and the same leak had sprung. While I was following him I felt like I had seen a ghost, I was speechless and shocked. I don't usually remember my dreams but just the sheer amount of familiarity with the situation made it all rush back. I'm not sure If I had the dream three days ago or just the previous night.

Charley Girl on November 22, 2018:

I just started researching this type of thing. You see I'm no one special. I've been in my share of trouble in my 34 years on this earth, mostly because of my past drug use. (Thank the Lord, I found him, myself, and recovery all about the same time. I've lost ppl I love and even discovered the body of my ex-boyfriend, my daughters' father when i was only 18yrs old. He hung himself from our upstairs. Other than that and my severe drug addiction I really have no major events in my life to recall. I've always been a dreamer, meaning I have very vivid dreams, sometimes that make little sense at all. And tho I don't everytime, I usually can recall the majority of them. Something happened recently and I'm starting to wonder if my dreams are leaving me breadcrumbs to truths about my life that I should know. It started almost a month ago. I had a weird dream that I had rat traps set all over this place in a building I didn't recognize. In one of the traps I had caught a fat, almost cartoon looking, brown rat. I was trying desperatly to free the rat but he kept trying to bite me so I was afraid. He just stared into my eyes. When I woke up and looked up my dream in the dream dictonary on my mobile it told me I should watch out for someone very close to me was deceiving me. I dont really put alot of stock in that sorta thing, nor is a dream dictionary highly reputable advice. Then 2 weeks ago I had a dream that my fiance, also a recovering addict, had relapsed and i found him at one of our old dealers house using again. This dream happened during a mid day nap and when I woke up it was like 3pm. My fiance should have still been at work but because I was so upset about the dream, I drove past our old dealers house and low and behold there my fiance's truck sit. I let him know I busted him and how I come to look for him there because of a dream. Well we are trying to work thru all this, relapse, the lies, and him sneaking around behind my back, ( this is not the 1st or 20th time hes lied to me.) Then last night, night before Thanksgiving, I had another dream. In this dream I caught him cheating on me with his ex and something in the dream kept saying to me this has been goin on the whole time right under my nose. In reality he had been with her when I went to jail one time but he made that known. When I got out of jail he wanted me back. So I have made passes by her work to make sure her cars there and by her house to make sure he not! But in my dream i saw that he had been having her leave her vehicle at work and he picked her up and drove to her house where he hid his truck in her garage. Now I'm really starting to wonder. Did I just have a few dreams that were lucky hunches or (what I feel), is I need to investigate more. I get if he's cheating I can't do this, but why now that I'm sober am i having these premonition like dreams. I prayed and asked God for guidance but now that I feel he's given it to me, I'm not sure I can take it! I wake up from these dreams and cant catch my breath. I'm so shaken and upset its almost impossible to go back to sleep. I'm not sure I wanna see the future, unless I can do something about it and even then, am I willing to do what it takes to change it? Someone help, PLEASE!

Austin on November 09, 2018:

I had similar experience. Usually for me it’s is a particular moment staged out of context with other events. This happens probably around once a year. For example my last dream prediction was a moment when I was sitting in an unfamiliar cafeteria feeling depressed. I could see and describe everything around me. About a year later I am sitting in the exact same spot in my dream at a college cafeteria feeling depressed about recent relationship. And everything I remembered was there. Even the clothes I was wearing was the same. I forgot about the dream until a rush of familiarity came to me. I am convinced that there is a connection between dreams and real life. This has been happening to me sense I was child.

grettalishome on November 02, 2018:

my family and i go to this convention annually, it just passed a week ago, but in my dream one of my friends enlisted in the army and was shot and killed. i remember everyone was crying in my dream, including me. then another of my friends, lets call her suzan, was going to go and enlist in the army at the convention center we always go to. turns out that same weekend, on the way to that convention center suzan and her family got in a car wreck, and there was a fatality. suzan was in the hospital for a few days but shes fine now, but i cant get over that dream

jojo on October 29, 2018:

This is amazing!!! Im glad Im not alone!

Vincent Cardinal on October 28, 2018:

Had a deja vu I was scanning a lottery ticket and I won

Emilia on October 25, 2018:

So my friend had an odd dream weeks ago and me and her and our close friends were there. It was a dream about her future and it is staring to come true slowly. We are starting to freak out and don’t know what to do. One of my friends are close. The others child was killed so she killed the killer and was sent to jail. The other was in a dangerous situation that could have her dead in 2 seconds yet nothing bad happened to me. She only got up to the point when we were thirty and the dream seemed pretty realistic. We are very frighten and scared. We tried getting our answers but she rejected us because we were 11 and she sent us out. We arent sure what to do.

Rebecca on October 21, 2018:

I had a dream on a Sunday afternoon about being at my mom's house and going to the mail box and picking some tiger lilies. I carried the flowers into the house and picked up a bird cage with 2 love birds in it. I carried the flowers and the birds into the bathroom where I pulled up a trap door in the floor next to the bathtub. I then took the flowers and birds into the hole beside the bathtub and then I woke up. That night my brother in law came home from work early and around 5 am he went into the bathroom told my sister in-law that she wasn't going to work and that the kids was going to need her and before she could turn around he shot and killed himself. My other sister in-law took me in the bathroom to show me where he did it but I had to leave the house as soon as she showed me because He fell right beside the bathtub just like in my dream where I took the flowers and birds into the hole. I've lived with guilt over this dream since 1992 because I feel like I should have known who and what was going to happen and be able to do something about it!

gerard ortiz on October 05, 2018:

i had a dream about a girl screaming at me saying "im pregnant" and saying what are we going to do" I don't recall much after and all I remember Is saying "yea" like basically saying that ill be there for her to take care of her and before that its long but that I had a nice home a girlfriend or wife not sure but their was a child of a female and the woman was pregnant and we were hugging eachother and looking into eachother eyes it was at awe and the thing is I did meet this girl that has a child and im not sure if shes pregnant but its like all adding up?

And my gf at the tine! Next day it happened !! Just like I saw it ! Not the first time , but first time I told some one before it happened !! True !! True!!

Isabelleliana on September 16, 2018:

I had some bizarre dreams 4-6 months ago that seemed airy and very light, as though the world was in a filter. All of them had mixed scenes that sped by at a comfortably slow pace in complete silence: a flash of a well-lit and unrecognized classroom, a blonde head of long hair disappearing around a corner in a hallway, a blue plastic cup on a window sill by a parking lot, an empty room with a yellow cactus in the window, and a sunlit restaurant with a young Asian woman laughing silently. When I woke up the next morning I felt refreshed and as though I had a purpose of some sort to do.

At the time I was living in a one bedroom apt with my younger sibling and mother in the bay area of the city where I live. It was almost never sunny there, and most of the time it was very chilly and covered in marine layer. My sibling suffers from a mental disability and my mother is bi-polar and I was severely unhappy during that time, which is probably why the dream stuck in my head for so long.

It was vague, but it was a little pocket of joy (or hope) for me during this hard time.

Just last month, my mother came to me saying she had found an affordable apt further inland that would be an easier area for her to travel to work everyday. I wasn't too interested, but agreed to go to the showing with her. The apt shown was not the one from my dream, but by one way or another we ended up losing that one and being recommended another at a better price: this one we took without even viewing it.

I still did not see it as the one from my dream, until upon moving in the management gifted us with a small yellow cactus for my new room, then I felt as if I belonged. The dream immediately rushed back to me and I began seeking out the other signs.

These have all come in the last three weeks or so, the last one happening on Sep. 13th.

The Asian woman laughing, and the cup in the windowsill occurred at a sushi restaurant by the new apt, in which she and I had a conversation about finding a job in the area: I am now a server happily employed at that restaurant. The well-lit classroom happened on my second day at the new school, where the sunlight poured through the window and lit up the whiteboard just as it had in my dream: I am much happier here than I was at my previous school. And the blonde head disappearing behind a corner happened to be my new best friend Cambria who introduced herself to me in between periods before giving me her number and walking away in the exact fashion of my dream.

I now feel just as I did having that dream a few months ago: at peace, almost as though everything is aligned as it is supposed to be. I feel confirmed that this is my place in the world, and I wanted to share this with you all: dreams really do come true. And the effect is everlasting.

Josie on September 15, 2018:

Ok so let me tell you some back story; I live in an apartment with my fad & cat. *im 14* and I had a dream they found out about the cat and we had to give him away. So then 32 hours later. My dad calls me and tells me they found out and we have to give him away. (This all happened 4 days ago. And last night. I had a dream my grandpa had a heart attack and died... that happened at 10am today... I’m scared of what’s gonna come next...

dexter1299 on September 05, 2018:

I would normally write this off as crazy someone trying to scam or lie to people to gain a sense of power but in these last couple of months i keep waking up with these feeling or knowing things about people that i should not know as they have never told anyone or simply knowing what is going to happen, for example i woke up one morning say 2 weeks ago and i just knew something really bad was going to happen and sure enough later that day one of my friends broke up with her boyfriend broke up with them and then tried to kill her self, and then another time about 8 days ago i woke up feeling like something good was going to happen and then i found 20 pounds on the floor and got asked out on the same day and then 3 days ago i had a dream about one of my friends drowning being stuck under the water being pulled out by the tide with water filling their lungs leaving them unable to scream for help, then on the next day i found out that the friend i had a deam about had almost died and is now in hospital fighting for his life and i had a dream about it, this is only some of what has been happening to me i have scared of 2 of my friends because of my uncanny knack to know their secrets and predict the course of the day, i dont know what is happening but it scares me and it is not stopping in fact it is happening more and more with increasing frequency.

Farrah on August 30, 2018:

I've only experienced this once. I had a boyfriend in high school, one time he picked me up and I could clearly tell he was drunk. Homeless people were in his car when I walked over to it and they were all smoking together. I found this entire experience to be off, not to mention in the days before whenever I would smoke with him I would get this intense feeling of doom- like i needed to run away. Later that night we got in a fight and I demanded he drive me home, I broke up with him in the car. When I went to sleep I had a terrible nightmare of him getting in a car crash with a friend, it was as if it was through his eyes blurry and incredibly intoxicated. I experied this crazy feeling that I could only place as death, and saw flashes of his photo in the news. I woke up dazed and exhausted, frantically searching news headlines finding nothing. Three days later after checking snapchat stories I see a picture of his face with my friend at a party and get the urge to text him. I texted him an apology late at night, just to find out that morning he ran into a pole by my high school and died in a car accident. He never read the text.

I take my dreams alot more serious now.

Robert on August 29, 2018:

So far, this has happened to me twice this year!

The first was when I was in Chicago and I dreamt about the White Sox playing the Yankees. (Keep in mind I rarely watch sports) That morning, I discovered that the WHITE SOX and YANKEES would be playing each other!

The second incident was where I was working on a screenplay for a short film, and on multiple occasions various bits of my screenplay would come true!

This phenomenon has led me to believe that I was in the Twilight Zone, and it was that "Printer's Devil" episode that I was living! So cool to know that I'm not the only one!

Charlotte on August 24, 2018:

I’ve had this!!!! When I wake up after the dream i can almost feel that it was important some how. And then I happens months after and I get this overhemeling feeling of dajavu. It’s only snipits of the dream but it’s 100% happened to me.

Luke on August 18, 2018:

I've had dreams all my life, less some times more others.

In my experience, the lucid dreams stick on your mind when you wake. Those seem to be more premonition type, I've had many.

Sometimes the premonition is a few days away, a couple times it's been years ahead of the actual incident.

No matter the time in between, it scares the hell out of you when you realize that, you're in that moment.

I wish I could hone this ability, but I'm lost.

It comes and goes as it's own.

Guy Random on August 17, 2018:

I've had so many dreams come true that I've lost count. My dreams are intense. I wake up laughing. I wake up crying from happiness, sadness. I wake up in fits of rage. I have dreams that do nothing but make me want to wake up but when I do, I'm paralized and I fall right back into the same dream over and over again. It became a skill to dream lucidly and take flight whenever I wanted. I call it a skill because you have to develope your ability to do this and it takes a tremendous amout of time and dedication to concentration during the day and right before you fall asleep. There are far too many that I cannot control though and it seems impossible to determine which ones will happen and when. They can happen the very next day or the next week. It could be months to years. I still have memories of dreams that haunt me to my soul until this vary day. The use of cannibis helps me. I'm sure that I do still dream but I just don't remember them when I wake up(usually). If I go a day without, all the intensity of my unconscious mind comes right back. Half of the time it is not pleasant. It all makes me believe that there is something else to this universe. There is something else to the dreams that people can dream. To dream or not to dream? Is it worth worrying which ones will happen?Sometimes I wonder if it's a gift.. Or a curse..

I had a dream that I got shot and it felt so real and now I feel like it’s gonna happen because I have deja vú a lot and it’s scary now

I stopped being able to remember my dreams when I was really young, probably about 3 or 4. Occasionally I did/do, but it isn't very often. Anyway, for as long as I can remember I have been having deja vu like that. I would hear someone say something, or take a step, I could do something so insignificant but it be at the exact right moment and I would feel this rush like an "I've been here before" type of thing. I know it comes from my dreams, even though I rarely ever remember them. I do remember one from when I was 6 years old. In it was this song that at the time I thought was so beautiful and I was thinking that I must have heard it somewhere, there isn't anything I can make up like that in my head. I tried looking for it but I could never find it. 8 years later, a new album of my favorite band came out. On it was the song that I heard in my dream which was really weird. I listened to the song and when I did I had that moment of "I have heard this before". I couldn't remember the exact dream but the song was so clearly the one from my dream. That was one of the most vivid moments of deja vu I have had. There have been many more though. I've always wondered why I have these dreams and the weird deja vu and now it makes sense that they could be premonitions or something.

Hey. I have been having these deja vus since my years of teens.im 22 now n the deja vus have only gotten more intense. Mainly there r triggers like a moment or what a person says or something as simple as music that just evokes that sense of deja vu in me.

I have been brushing off these feeling for a while until recently..I had this feeling that things I was seeing in my dreams was preety much happening in real life. so what I tried next has me spooked because this time what I'd did was I tried to predict things that felt familiar wid my dream.i told my friend one of prediction.since I remembered that one clearly from my dream.it was about my sister returning from the bus station because she wudnt get any ride. Well we waited .3 hours passed.my friend was now convinced that she caught a bus n was traveling.but I cud not shake that dream.it was so strong.my friend decided to sleep.so I thought well.i guess I can't predict shit after all.i was glad about it actually.so I slept.an hour later.i get a call from my sister.she said she was returning home for she qnd her friend cud not get a bus. N now there r more moments like this.

It kinda bugging me big time.i just dunno how to get rid of it...

i also predicted the sex of my little sister the night before my mother went to the doctor to find out herself. i was only 6. i also knew about my step fathers past and how the future of him being in my life would affect me. (he’s the reason i have to see a psychologist) he never did anything bad just emotional abuse you could call it. but at 7 i told my mom that i didn’t want him in my life and that i would never accept him. i just thought that it was me being a child who wanted her mother to herself. i think it was something else but i’m not sure. i also knew my mother was pregnant with my youngest brother before she did, and i knew it was going to be a boy. these were not something i had dreamt about (unless i had just forgotten). i had never had a déjà vu moment with these things but i was also younger so maybe i didn’t know what to call it. there’s a lot of things i just know and i can’t ever explain how i know. when i was younger i had these dreams that there was someone in my room at night just watching me, but when i awoke there was no one there. i asked my mom if she knew if the house was haunted and she didn’t know. but then things started to happen. weird things like a door being closed when we left the house (locked the door behind us) and then when we get home the door would be open. i had dreamt there was someone else there and after incidences like that continued to happen, my parents had someone come in to check out the house for activity. there were harmless spirits here they said. but again i had dreamt about it. this article isn’t about paranormal activity but i had dreamt about it all. i don’t know how to explain it. does anyone ?

Aarika on August 07, 2018:

i had a dream where i was in a house that i didn’t recognize and talking to a bunch of strangers as if i knew them. a couple months later my family and i went on vacation to visit my moms side of the family for the first time in a long time. i had the sense of déjà vu and then remembered that i had previously told my mother about the dream. it gets weirder. we were told that my step dad wasn’t allowed to cross the border the day that we left for vacation because of something he did when he was 19 (nothing bad but enough so he wasn’t allowed to cross) but the night before i had dreamt that he wouldn’t be able to be with us. i pushed it aside because i was sure it wasn’t true. but that whole morning in the airport i felt like something was off. sure enough he wasn’t allowed to cross. i usually get these gut feelings when something bad is about to happen but i never listen to it because i don’t want to come off as crazy. it’s happened to me multiple times over the past 5 years where i just know that i’ve been somewhere before even if i hadn’t. i thought that it was some sort of mind trick. that i had been in a similar situation and just thought that it was déjà vu. but after the vacation trip i just knew that it had to be real. the whole time i was there i had these reoccurring dreams that i was my mother’s mom (she died when my mom was 10) and just in the form of here daughter. we went to my mothers home town on vacation and i had never felt more at home or comfortable. i don’t know what this is.

alexander on August 07, 2018:

when i was 15 i had the most realistic dream. prior to it happening, i had been in bali with my family for a week and the first person i texted when we landed back home was my best friend of two years, let's call her A. it was a pretty normal conversation and i didn't think anything of it. that night, i had a dream i can never forget, i'd call it a personal nightmare, a worst case scenario. i dreamt that i had gone to school the next day and A was acting strange. she wasn't happy to see me, even though i had been gone for a week and we were used to seeing each other every single day, and she was being extremely distant and cold. the dream went on to span the course of what felt like about a week. she was getting colder and colder to me but was getting extremely close to one of our mutual friends, let's call her G. i was getting increasingly upset and distressed and the whole thing ended with A telling me that she couldn't stand to even look at me anymore and that she didn't want to be my friend or talk to me ever again. needless to say, i was extremely shaken up when i awoke. something important to know about my dreams is that they're always ridiculous and surreal and make zero sense. my most notable dream that i can remember was one where one of my classmates turned into a goat and got into a fight with another one of my classmates over apples. it was weird. having such a realistic and plausible dream was absolutely terrifying to me.

i'm sure you can guess what happened next. i went to school, and A was being weird. it got worse as the weeks dragged on and on, she was getting extremely close with G and i cried myself to sleep for so many nights. she barely even talked to me, she'd always make excuses to get away from me and i had no idea why. i hadn't done anything wrong. i ended up confronting her about it over text on the last day of term and she sent me a series of texts that are burned into my mind. she sent me paragraphs and paragraphs about how she 'didn't feel the magic' in our friendship anymore, how she had been making excuses, she didn't want to be my friend anymore and she also said, and i quote, "i can't even stand to look at you anymore." it was the worst thing that has ever happened to me (that i can remember at least).

i was heartbroken, i called my friend, who we'll call B, and told her everything that happened. then she brought up the dream i had, which i told her about. i felt like i was going crazy.

Early this morning i dreamt i was riding my dirt bike and ran out of gas. Later today unexpectedly because i thought i had plenty i was riding and sure enough ran out. Ive had many come true. The subconscious mind far out weighs your waking mind.

Larry Ashurst on August 05, 2018:

I dreamt 9/11 the night before it happened. It was so real it woke me. I rang my then girlfriend and told her I'd seen three planesand one crashed in front of me. There were bodies everywhere. Later that day after it happened she agreed I'd seen it. I'd had dreams like it before that came true. But that one haunts me. I believe that it's the emotion of the incident and you feel that. I also have a deep dread that the biggest war ever is almost upon us.

Kent Holmes on August 02, 2018:

I have dejavu in a different way..I see it the same .that is what's going to happen,and the outcome is devastating...but when it plays out ,1 small thing is different,therefore the outcome is good,empowering.lifechanging. .positive..can.u explain that?!!

Rai on July 25, 2018:

I just came across this after looking for a site to help me (but to no avail). I don't know what I have, but it's sort of like a cross between déjà vu and premonitions. I've been like it for as long as I can remember. I'll have a dream where I am involved in some way or other, such as in the same area or actively taking part, where it's just an everyday or normal scene and then something bad happens. It is always something resulting in death or injury. Often, and if not, always, I am always one of the people or the only one getting hurt in the dream. After the disruptive incident happens, I'll wake up as normal. Sometimes I can recall the dream whenever, but often I'll forget it upon waking up. I'll remember it just as the exact same scenario in the dream starts to take place. But this is where it gets weird. I'll be there and suddenly freeze up and wait, because I know exactly what's going to happen. If I get an extremely bad gut feeling, I'll alter the situation by doing an action I didn't do in the dream, such as simply changing where I'm standing or my stance. That bad thing never happens and I'm too scared to see it through to the end just in case it does. Believe me, I'll get this really awful feeling of dread. It's creepy even when everything in reality, down to the smallest detail such as what colour car passed by, is exactly the same as in the dream. One example is when I was sitting in the back of the car going down a busy main road. In my dream, somewhere near us there was a very bad accident. The last thing I saw was a vehicle smashing straight into my side of the car. It was a dark blue truck, and on my other side, the crash barrier which we'd be squashed up against. I wake just as when I assume I die. So this dreams comes true when we are going down the exact same highway in the exact same lane with the exact same amount and type of cars around us. In the dream, I knew we were going to Exeter for an event, and in reality, that was exactly what we were doing. The déjà vu hit when this all fell into place and the dream flashbacks in my head momentarily. Eventually, that really nasty feeling takes me over and I don't know what to do. I ask my dad to slow down a little and start up a conversation with my sister to change the scene. The accident doesn't happen but that exact same dark blue truck overtook us after I changed it. After the experience, the feeling immediately vanishes and I feel calm. There are more examples but then this will be extremely long. Please someone tell me what's wrong with me because it's becoming more frequent and the dreams more clear!

Jason on July 18, 2018:

Over the weekend I had a dream that took place about 2 months ago come to fruition. There were a bunch of friends hanging out in a tent. There was 1 person that looked at me and the whole dream came back to me. There was a friend that said she was leaving in the dream and after some crazy things happened in the dream I remember saying and thinking I should have left when she did. Leading up to her saying she was leaving and a few words that I can only describe as being the most bizarre came out of someone's mouth just as it did in my dream. It really freaked me out and I left when she did. And the crazy stuff that happened in my dream didn't take place because I decided to leave. Has anyone ever had anything like this happen and by making a different decision change the outcome of the dream/déjà vu. Any I sight to this is greatly appreciated.

In my dream once I saw my dad at the end of my bed standing there with just a towel, he just got out of the shower, I called my mother about dad she told me he is in the hospital with pnemonna.

D on July 14, 2018:

The best way to describe it is feeling so connected to time/space and this earth that were on that somewhere along the way I was able to catch a glitch into the future at some point and I finally caught up to the moment..multiple occasions I've been lucky to feel so perplexed..

Cytherea on July 07, 2018:

OMG, this totally was what I was experiencing And in a quicker time frame from dream I remembered to later happening used to be 5-7yrs and now it's 1-3 years. I believe in the 3rd eye and i am either closer to my purpose I am closer to dying or I am closer to the universal knowledge i seek.

This is a great insight that connects other concepts I have read and self connected.

J on June 30, 2018:

All the dreams that I had have come true, so if I had a dream that the world is going to end when I'm in my 20 or 30 does it mean it will come true if the rest of my dreams did.

Lonely on June 22, 2018:

I’ve had this dream of a instagram live video of someone dying and them being remembered but all I could hear was clapping and I see this comment that username astonishing that says *tupacgf* and it hit me that it was a vigil I just found out which lead me to this search because the dream was so detailed I knew what the comment was about to say before it popped up and it scared me a little my dreams seem to reacquire until I see it in reality...

L on June 19, 2018:

I am so thankful to have come across this page and see that I am not the only one. Dreams r pretty normal n we've all had them before but about a yr ago I realized that some of my dreams were physically coming to life. 2016 I started to dream a lot, but at that time I was dealing with something so I didnt pay it much mind. 2017 came along and ppl started dying. I'd hear or see a vid/pic of someone who died n immediately get a flashback to a dream and then the whole incident and more starts coming bk to me. I'd see up to their last hour(s), what they wore, where they're at, and how it came about, not only from the person dying's view but the ppl around them as well. It used to get so overwhelming all I wanted to do is cryy for them, not being able to help them had me feeling sick. I tried to talk about it but I quickly learned that this isn't a topic for everyone, only those who could relate would understand. It's 2018 and I'm still having these "dejavu moments", and all I can do is pray A LOT for these ppl I dream about, whether I know them or not. The death dreams r what caught my attention but there is way more to it than what ive wrote. I'm just honestly really glad to know that this is normal and I'm not the only one going through it.. for the past yr i've kept this to myself cuz I dint want to seem crazy or shame my family in any way. I didn't even want to research it but deep down knew something is up and tonight I came across this. Thankful, cuz this was really a tough time for me, n just knowing someone could relate brings me so much comfort. I thought of it more of a curse than a blessing and as much as I wanted to open up about them, I just didn't want to seem crazy. But thank God I seen this, just knowing I'm not alone helps. God be with us all.

Cassy from Born in Georgia but home is Alabama on June 17, 2018:

What would you call deja vu that lasted for days and weeks at a time?

J on June 10, 2018:

These have happened to me waht feels like 1000 times. I dreamt several times about my new job before having it, the woman that got hit by the self driving uber car, and many other scenarios. This has happened since i was 12 or so. I’m 19 now and this feeling of deja vu, which i know it isn’t, has only increased and is now at an all time high. I could only convince two people I have talked about it to: my ex and my mom haha. It used to freak me out, but now i accept it as normal. My theory is that time isn’t linear, and these dreams are almost burnt images my brain has processed at other times, and my dreams are almost like my brain is reviewing what has happened (both in the past and future). This isn’t the best explanation i could muster, but im only reading this comment once. If you want to talk about this occurring, email me at cutoffschess@gmail.com (i dont want to use my email with my real name)

Kevin on June 09, 2018:

I had a premonition from over a year ago roughly where I would wake up in a new home in a office bed and would see my friend but something bad happened but I can't remember what. Right now I just thought about it and how my life has changed so much as my parents divorced and now I'm here and I can just feel that something horrible is going to happen tomorrow as I've had over 10 of these now.

Barbie from Philly on June 08, 2018:

I wonder why do we have these dreams but can't do anything about them. I dreamed of Hurricane Katrina months before it happened.

Abbie on June 06, 2018:

Well last year I had a dream that a teacher said over the speaker that we will be having our lunch inside for the first few minutes of lunch just so we can eat inside. When I woke up it felt so real I couldn’t tell if it was a dream or not. I got more confused a week after the dream and told my friend. By that time I couldn’t remember if the dream was real or not if this makes any sense? He told me that no one ever said anything like that and we are always eating our food outside like normal. It got even weirder when a few days later my exact dream actually came to life! The same teacher, the same place, the same people the same words though it happened irl. Me and my friend that I told where both so confused and astonished this had happened and to this day I am still confused as to what happened?

Steven Saunders on May 31, 2018:

I'm actually havin weirder and weirder stuff happening and tomorrow I know what's gunner happen I'm looking at a car to tell them what's wrong but I know theirs sumit more sinister that's going to happen do I go or change what is coming

Zackary Wallace on May 30, 2018:

I can definitely believe this because it happens to me all the time at least twice a week I seen my aunt roll her car in a dream and she died a week later from rolling her car

elijah doisey on May 24, 2018:

hi im 12 and his has happened to me about 5 times 1 year ago i had a dream of me and my friends painting a clubhouse that we where making and 1 year later it actually happened and im happy to know im not the only one

Gary on May 24, 2018:

This is a great theory and I think I will definitely pay more attention to my dreams now
