I See Things in Dreams That Come True—Am I a Witch?

Updated on July 1, 2019

Born in deepest Cornwall and now living in wild Wales, Bev has been practising her personal brand of witchcraft for years and years.

You have a dream, and a few days later your dream unfolds in real life—exactly as you saw it when sleeping. Or perhaps you are carrying out some mundane task and a mind-movie unfolds in your head. You are then amazed, and perhaps a little frightened, when the same scenario repeats itself for real the following week. You begin to wonder if you have magical powers. And people who have magical powers are witches, right?

Not necessarily.

Psychic Dreams

There is a school of thought that believes that everything that has happened and everything that will ever happen is collected on the psychic plane. Some call it the Akashic Records. Others will refer to another dimension. If this is the case, then you have the ability to tap into this plane of everything and pull out threads related to your life. It happens when you are asleep because your mind is free and your body is relaxed.

Psychic Visions

Psychic visions are similar to dreaming. Generally, it happens when you are relaxed or thinking about something else. Your hands are busy and your mind is roaming free. Your vision may take the form of a mind-movie, as described earlier (clairvoyance), or it might come as a picture, or spoken words (clairaudience). Often it arrives as a feeling of certainty about the future (claircognizance).

What Is the Psychic Realm?

In the psychic realm, there is no time. All of the world’s events (and non-events) past, present, and future, are stored. All knowledge resides there. Its possible to use tools to access this information—for me, it is tarot cards. For others, it could be astrology or palm reading. Some gifted (psychic) people are able to access it at will, some via dreams and visions, while the rest simply have no idea that it is there. Charlatans and ‘people readers’ just pretend.

Do These Dreams and Visions Mean I Am a Witch?

There is a lot of confusion about what having psychic premonitions means. I get a lot of people telling me they are witches because they have dreams and visions.

Let me clarify.

Being psychic and having premonitions, does not mean you are a witch.

You can become a witch if you want. It’s something you choose to do. Witchcraft, as the name suggests, is a craft. It has to be learned. It’s true that some witches are born with certain gifts that make their journey into witchcraft easier. They may have natural skills of manipulating energy, or feel compelled to practice the magickal arts. Or they may have a deep rooted family tradition of witchcraft. However, most witches make the choice to become a witch. It's a bit like embarking on a degree program.

Are Witches Psychic?

No, not all of them. Some are, of course. Some choose to develop their intuition by journaling and doing visualization exercises . Some meditate to connect with their higher selves/subconscious. Others are content with practicing magic or using herbs. It’s all a matter of personal choice, gifts, talents and interests.

A good analogy would be playing a musical instrument. Some people are able to play an instrument without learning to read music. They have a natural ability to play by ear and are the psychics of the music world if you like. They might show off his or her talent occasionally but they can’t really call themselves a musician because they haven’t studied, practiced or performed. They haven’t developed all the other skills, or absorbed all the necessary knowledge to be a real musician. So it is with witchcraft. Being psychic does not mean you are a witch.

My Mother Told Me I Have Sixth Sense

Again, this means you have psychic abilities. If you want to use them in the practice of witchcraft, that’s fine, but you still have to learn the basic and advanced skills in order to become a witch. You are lucky because having such psychic gifts can help you a lot along the path. For example, I chose tarot reading as my witchy specialization. If you are psychic, you may find you know exactly what the cards are telling you without having to spend years learning and using them to be a competent reader.

Two Directions: Psychic or Witch?

There are two main directions you could choose. You could stick with being psychic and put all your energy into developing your gift. Eventually you might be able to set yourself up as a psychic consultant. This choice is more mainstream than you might think. Just take a look at all the TV psychics.

The other choice, if you are attracted to it, is to learn witchcraft and incorporate your psychic gifts into your practice of the craft. This path, by its very nature, tends to be more secretive and private. Not many people make a career out of witchcraft. It’s usually something that underpins your lifestyle. For instance, an engineer could also be a witch.

Of course, a third option is to do neither. In which case, you might want to learn how to suppress your psychic dreams and visions.

I Choose Witchcraft. Where Do I Start?

I suggest that you begin by undertaking a little research and exploration of the craft. Just find out what it’s about; what witches do. Learn about the different traditions and see if any of them appeal to you. Read a few books on the subject. My favorite recommendation for new witches is Lisa Chamberlain’s well-written, but simple book, “Modern Witchcraft and Magic for Beginners: A Guide to Traditional and Contemporary Paths, with Magical Techniques for the Beginner Witch.” Lisa mostly writes about Wicca, which is one branch of witchcraft, but this book is wider in scope and covers history and traditions.

How Could I Use My Dreams in Witchcraft?

Alongside your study of the craft, it would be a good idea to choose dream interpretation as your ‘specialist subject’. Keep a journal of your dreams. Get into the habit of writing them down as soon as you wake up.

Do the same if you have visions. Keep a record of each vision, then go back a few days or weeks later and see how close your dream or vision was to the way things happened. Add your notes and observations to the original dream. You will get better and better at interpreting your own dreams. You’ll see patterns emerge and perhaps you’ll notice what events during the day seem to promote you having psychic dreams at night.

Read up on other people’s experiences with psychic dreams. You might be able to find an online community where you can share your own experiences. You’ll have to be prepared to spend some time searching, but I do know there are lots of platforms out there. One prominent one is “Psychic Experiences.”

When you feel ready, you might experiment with deliberate dreaming. You could set your intention to:

  • Discover if your new relationship will be good.
  • Find out more about the company you are interviewing for.
  • Check to see if your best friend is lying.
  • Learn if your crush is interested in you.
  • And so on…

You could set your dream/vision intentions into a simple spell or ritual. You could also try meditation within a circle you have cast, or in a sacred space you have created (same thing really).

Have a look at all the witchy practices that fit in with psychism. I’ve already mentioned tarot but there are others: crystal gazing, scrying, fire gazing, dowsing with a pendulum, automatic writing, to name but a few.

Good luck on your psychic witchy journey. Please share your experiences in the comments section. I’d love to hear from you.

Are you psychic, a witch, or both?

      I believe that our subconscious has access to 'everything', all knowledge that is stored in the collective unconscious. A place where time works differently, or doesn't exist at all.

      So it's possible your subconscious was trying to give you a heads-up in order to protect you. Emotional pain is not inevitable, you can choose how to react to negative events. For instance, you could choose to feel relief that you have been saved from a bad relationship. Or you could choose to express the pain as anger.

      All is well.

      My boyfriend and I were doing well, and I had a dream that he was dating someone else. I laughed it off because there was no reason to think it true, but it turns out it was a premonition because two months later he broke up with me for her. I don’t foresee anyway that knowing would have stopped the inevitable pain so why would I have received the premonition? What triggers premonitions?

      Thanks for sharing the details of your life, Farbissina. Your parents sound amazing.

      But, as I say to many... you are a witch if you practice witchcraft.

      The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My mother was a French flutist named Chloe with webbed feet. My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with a low-grade narcolepsy. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. I feel like the strange circumstances surrounding my mystical childhood have helped me to foresee the future. Does this mean I'm a witch?

      Hi Paris,

      It seems likely you have a degree of pre-sentience or, in other words, you somehow know what is going to happen.

      We all have access to knowledge which transcends space and time. Where all things that have, and will happen exist. Some people have a more developed way of accessing the information than others.

      Hello.

      I usually don't go on these types of sites but what happened last night still has me shaken to my core. I was having a dream that something dangerous was about to happen and I had no idea what it was. In the dream, I was gathering my family members and checking my phone to see what was going on. I told them to get into the center of the house and stay away from doors and windows until I could figure out what was going on. I could feel the anxiety in my stomach not knowing what was going to happen. Suddenly, in real life, I was awoken by a loud alarm coming from my phone and it was a tornado warning emergency alert issued by the national weather service.

      This isn't the first time something like this has happened, the last time I can truly remember this happening was when I was little. Other times I just get a strong sense of de-ja vu.

      Is this a mere coincidence or do I possibly have some hidden locked feature to me?

      It depends what you want to do. I'm not psychic myself, but I'd suggest you start by developing your intuition using something like tarot cards. That is my specialty and it's a great way to learn about... well, everything.

      Thank you for responding to my question, I'm not sure how to respond. If in fact I am, how can I get in more touch with my psychic abilities, because so far I only dream about pregnancies.

      I would say that you are psychic and that your gift has manifested in a very focused way :)

      Not sure if psychic 

      6 months ago

      Some years now, I have been dreaming of pregnancies and almost everytime its true. It so happens its either family and friends that come up pregnant. I'll either tell my daughters or husband about it just so they see it comes true. They are like wow! That's crazy! So, I'm I psychic or is it coincedental? What do you think?

      Hi, I’ve been looking into witchcraft because of my psyhic tendices, but I don’t think it’s for me. However, I do want to develop my own psyhic ablities. Would you know a good website for that?

      Thanks

      Thanks, Tim. This one was written in response to all the questions I receive on the subject.

      I agree with your point that those who suffer with nightmares could benefit by learning how to lucid dream.

      Happy New Year!

      Hi, Bev. G.,

      This one caught my attention for several reasons. First, science has proven that nearly all of us have the ability to see at least three seconds or so into the future. Likewise, lucid dreaming, the idea of controlling what you do in dreams, is very helpful for many people. (I'm thinking of those with reoccurring nightmares, such as former soldiers.)

      In addition, these individuals experiencing psychic dreams should be aware that several of the biblical prophets actually had such dreams. My grandmother, who was a Christian, was also a member of a tribe of Native Americans, the Lumbi. She would often meditate and go on "vision quests." Perhaps, there are spiritual or personal destinies a person may need to fulfill. They may accomplish these goals regardless of religious preference.

      However, your article is very informative and useful. Psychic doesn't equal witch; all witches are not psychic. I couldn't have said those lines better, Bev. G. Eloquently done for all of us.

      sincerely,

      Tim

      The best way to decipher and understand your dreams is to keep a dream/psychic journal.

      I don't really know what these dreams are that I'm having. It's not exactly as described in the article above. They're like me seeing things in dreams but they're not always from my eyes. I'm usually looking from somewhere on the shadows or something. They're also not very clear, there's always some important detail that's blurry or faded. But they just feel so vivid. So real. The dreams are kinda guiding me into what going to happen in the future. One dream was when my 2 almost 3 year old cousin said to me in a dream, "listen abu listen", and the next morning, his mother wanted to talk to me as well as my aunt and uncle too. These are l out.ittle weird and they're kinda freaking me out. And I'm not the type that easily gets freaked out so that's saying something. I'm also quite intrigued and I would really like to know what the hell is going on with me. Gracias por su atención

      Oh I do enjoy your well-thought out comments, Mr H. Thank you. I'm pretty sure that there is witchcraft in some engineering. And definitely in some architecture :)

      "Some call it the Akashic Records." - Nice! I did not know there was a specific name for this. I just called it a "Universal Knowledge", which can be tapped into.

      "pull out threads related to your life." - This part of the sentence made me think of the Moirai/Moerae (the Fates), who controlled the "thread of life", as Greek mythology expains.

      "Charlatans and ‘people readers’ just pretend." - They do, don't they!? Haha! I will say something here though: one can make some predictions which can be correct through profiling. At the same time, one should not mistake profiling with the "seeing" of a psychic, sorcerer, seer and the like.

      "For instance, an engineer could also be a witch." - Would that be an engineering witch? I'm just goofing around. Don't mind me lol : )

      On a different note, I can say here that we can control what we do in Dreaming. Self-awareness in Dreaming is difficult but it is possible. And ultimately, one can achieve incredible outcomes when Dreaming is controlled. That's a bit of another topic I suppose.

      Thank You for your piece of writing. Cheers!
