Many will experience at least one thought in their life that proves to be more than just a passing thought. It may be that this thought will come in the form of a dream or vision that tells them of something they do not yet realize is a picture or image of what is to come.
Some dreams are exactly that, a dream, others are much more than a simple dream. They may carry with them hidden messages through symbolism or hidden meanings of the actions. The dreams may actually reflect what will be done in a situation or what will occur due to a certain situation.
An example of the difference between a bizarre dream and a predictive dream would be something in the dream makes it so real that you cannot forget it. It leaves you sad or happy and you wake in tears or laughing aloud. In fact, it as if we are awake the whole time we are dreaming.
The steps that play out in the dream are so vivid it is as if we are actually taking them, we wake feeling the side of our face being cold as if the wind that blew in the dream had really been blowing and chilled our face.
How do we distinguish between what is reality and what is fantasy in a dream? I feel that we can tell the difference by the feel of the dream, even if the images are quite strange or seem to be very imaginative. It is not logical, in reality, that we may hear them as if they are speaking in our language, yet if they appear to be speaking to us maybe the message is something of reality.
I do not know that dreams can tell us everything we need to know but I do know that they can tell us much of what we need to know. I know that when they speak to us of something that relates somehow to something that is happening in our real life, not our dream life, it is probably a message with which we should pay close attention.
It is often a fact that until the event occurs in our waking life, we may never know that the dream was in fact a premonition or prophetic dream. No matter the dream, it is important that we pay attention to each detail and keep a journal of the dreams that come to us so we can compare what we think and feel with each one.
It is only after we implement a process to learn about how our dreams affect us that we can truly come to understand how our dreams speak to us. Each person will experience and go through this process differently but in the end the result is the same; a better understanding of oneself and ones messages through the world of dreams.
