Do you believe dreams are a portent of the future?

Three days ago, my friend told me that she dreamed of seeing a nice pair of slippers. She explained to me in intricate detail the features of the slippers and said that she wanted just that pair for her 7-yeal-old daughter. Yesterday, she came home excitedly and produced out of a shopping bag a pair of slippers exactly like the one she had seen in her dream. Do you have dreams that later came true?

Yes I have had that experienced that before, in minor cases like dreaming of a conversation or being lectured by a teacher lolz then i forget about it a few months later it happens and I'm like oh no not again... But I did have one that was a major one for me. I am an only child and since I was two years old I never met my father although we spoke over the phone... anyways I had this dream of going a few blocks from my house and incidentally my dad was there and he took me to a church at nearby city. here's how it translated to my real life a few months later. a friend of mine who lived a few blocks from me invited me to go to church at a nearby city... Then when we got there it just so happened that the minister asked me if I was somehow related to my Dad and that he knew my Dad from when he was here. I was so surprised I didn't know whether it was coincidence or deja vu or whatever it was...

Wow, that was a life-changing event, I mean a major event in your life. I have had several things, scenes I dreamt of and then later I saw them in real life and I get this really strange feeling that I have seen that before until I realized that I saw it in a dream

it was kind of a freaky incident but since then I've been having more dreams about conversations or scenes that actually happen eventually, so when i know its bad i sometimes prevent it from happening but if its not i just let it take its course..

Hmm, that's interesting. How do you prevent it from happening?

I don't usually remember my dreams, but sometimes I feel like I've been somewhere or done something before and I know that physically I haven't. De ja veu (sp)? My youngest daughter used to get up some mornings and absolutely refuse to go to school. When I'd finally get her to talk to me she'd say that she'd had a dream that such and such was going to happen and she could tell that it was one of those dreams that was going to happen. The event she'd dreamed about wasn't catastrophic or anything, it was just something she didn't want to face at that time. We'd talk it through and she'd finally go to school. I don't know if she quit having that type of dream, or if she finally accepted that it was just a warning so she could prepare herself emotionally for the day. She quit mentioning them when she got in high school.

Maybe your daughter is one of those people who are sensitive to - I mean those who have a sort of sixth sense or something.

Yes, she definitely is. She had to finally learn to put up a wall when she started massage therapy because she'd be drowned in clients emotions if she didn't.

That's interesting. She must have been really more sensitive than most.
