It’s pretty normal to have a scary dream. But sometimes you have some dreams that are entirely too vivid, and keep repeating. Could they possibly be premonitions?
Dreams have a lot of purposes. Sometimes dreams serve as prophecies for future events. Not every dream is a prophetic dream. A psychic can tell.
It’s common for people to have prophetic dreams. But that doesn’t mean a scary dream about dying means you will die. Here’s how a psychic can make sense of your dreams.
What’s In A Dream
We spend a third of our lives asleep. Although we are not conscious for that portion of our lives, our brains are still very active. The mind needs to put the body into rest mode so that you can do internal maintenance. Dreams are how your psyche and nervous system rebalance itself.
There are several purposes dreams can fulfill depending on your current needs. Here are some of the things your mind can do while you are sleeping.
- Practice newly learned psychical tasks
- Astral project
- Experience stressful situations in a safe space
- Explore emotional states
- Find catharsis and healing
- Summon a spirit visitation through the dreamscape
- Remember past lives
- See the future
As you can see, dreams serve many psychic functions. This includes seeing the future. However, it can be hard to tell which dreams are prophecies and which are not. Ultimately, if you have questions about the weird dream you're having, it's best to speak to a psychic.
Examples of Famous Prophetic Dreams
Are dreams sometimes signs of things yet to come? Yes. There are even some very famous examples of people predicting their future through a dream.
President Abraham Lincoln famously dreamed of his own demise. In his dream, he saw people crying in the white house. When he looked to the East Room, he saw a body dressed for a burial. When Lincoln asked people in the dream they told him the president had been assassinated.
Lincoln told his friend and law partner Ward Hill Lamon. Lamon stated that Lincoln appeared disturbed by the dream. Even though the president in the dream was not Lincoln himself, John Wilkes Booth shot him days later.
The Landslide of South Wales
In 1966 a landslide in the South Wales village of Aberfan destroyed a school. It killed 144 students and teachers.
Shortly after the landslide, British psychiatrist John Barker came to conduct research. He wanted to know how people act when they believe they are about to die. Barker collected 76 accounts of landslide premonitions.
Of the most notable was the tale of 10 year old Eryl Mai. Before the accident, the little girl told her mother she had a bad dream. In the dream, she was covered by "something black."
Assassination of Robert Kennedy
Lincoln wasn't the only one who's assassination came with a premonition. After Barker did his research in South Wales, some people kept reporting psychic dreams. Many of these people would send their dreams to a newspaper column named Premonitions Bureau.
Kathleen Middleton was one of these submitters. In March 1968 she sent her first premonition of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. These dreams persist for months. She called the Premonitions Bureau three times on June 4th of 1968. She was deeply concerned about Kennedy. The very next day, Robert Kennedy was shot just after midnight.
How Do I Know What My Dream Is Trying To Tell Me?
So we know that some dreams are premonitions. How do you know when it’s a premonition? How do you know when the dream is trying to tell you something?
The easiest way to find out is to ask a psychic. A psychic can give you a second opinion on what’s going on. This is especially important if you have a scary death dream. As you can see from the examples, it’s common to have prophetic dreams about when you will die.
However, it’s also for death dreams to actually be memories from past lives. This is why you want to call a psychic if you have a scary death dream. They can tell you if it's a premonition or a memory.
Dreams have a lot of purposes. Some of them are scary, but that doesn’t mean every scary dream means something bad will happen. It’s extremely common for death dreams to actually be memories of your last life, rather than your future.
This is why you should go in for a psychic reading when you have weird dreams. A psychic can tell you what the dream is trying to say. As you begin to understand your dreams, the more clear they will become.
