I Dream Events Before They Happen.I have really vivid dreams every night. I remember all of my dreams the next day and can tell you exactly what happened. Some of my dreams I even have control of them, I can pause them, rewind and redo something that I didn't like.
The dreams that really freak me out though, are the ones that come true. These dreams I have no control over. Most of them have to do with someone dying. But I can not piece them together fast enough to prevent this from happening. It is not until the tragedy happens that I realize I dreamt it.
They do not happen frequently, but when I have one I usually wake up the next day with a really bad feeling that something is going to happen but I can never figure it out.
I don't believe in psychics or people being able to see the future, I don't believe in ghosts or spirits or being able to talk to the dead.
I can not figure out these dreams, they really freak me out, and I hate feeling like I knew that something was going to happen before it did.
The first time it happened was with my best friend. I was 14 years old and me and this girl susan were attached at the hip. She was the best friend anyone could ask for, I told her everything, she told me everything.
One night I went to bed and had this dream that I walked into a house and I was being held back by something, I just kept pushing forward. It took me forever to walk around the corner. I kept seeing a shadow of something swinging back and forth in the next room and every slow step that I took it became more clear that it was not something but someone. That was the end of my dream. I woke up feeling sad and had a bad feeling deep in my stomach.
I walked half way to Susan's house and stood and waited for her. (we used to meet up half way between our homes and walk to school) I stood there for 20 minutes, started walking to school by myself, then some reason I turned back around and walked all the way to Susan's. I knocked on the door and no one answered but I opened it and walked in. I realized that I was in deja-vu and I had been here in my dream. I ran around the corner crying and screaming and here was my best friend hanging from a rope dead. It took me years to get over it, I still get choked up thinking that if I had just called her after that dream maybe she would of been ok. But I know that there was no way of me knowing who my dream was about or if it would come true.
A few years later it happened again. I dreamed that I was in the middle of the road and could see lights coming towards me and then I woke up from falling out of bed and hearing a big crash. This time my friends mother had passed away from colliding with a car while on her ATV.
Another dream was about a girl I didn't even know, she was on my soccer team and we had never spoken other then to say hi. But I had a dream about her being trapped somewhere and couldn't breathe. The next day at school we had found out that she had slit her wrists in the bathtub and they found her under the water dead.
I even had a dream about my cat running until she couldn't anymore and then slowly laid down and stopped breathing. My cat took a stroke in my arms the next day and died.
The only thing that is ever similar about all of these dreams is that I always feel as if I am the person who I am dreaming about.
I wish I never had these dreams because I don't want to believe that I can dream things before they happen.
The worst part though, is not being able to tell which dreams will come true and which will not. So I spend most of my mornings worrying about my dream coming true. Especially if it was about someone suffering or dying.
