I used to believe that dreams are prophetic when I was schoolgirl, but now I don't. I think dreams are like a mirror for our secret (or maybe not secret) wishes or concealed horrors. I always want to travel a lot and in my dreams I visited such places which I can't ideate (usually it's not our world... but it may be just another city) :roll: Sometimes it's interesting for me to remember my dreams whatever it is and if I was a writer I would have a rich materials for stories... ;)

The only meaning of my dream is that it makes me realized i am still alive when i open my eyes. Otherwise, no matter how good and accurate my dream was but i could not ever open my eyes again (in other words, i died), that dreams means nothing.

Again, case close.. next case please.. lol

Once in a while dreams might mean something to us. I think it is true in some speical situation.
When we are under pressure, or there is something impacted us deeply, or we have other emotional experiences, the dreams will be in effect.
They will tell us something that we aren't aware of when awaking. For instance, in dream we could work out some question which we can't find the answer and think over all the days.
But about dreams predicting the future, I don't support this viewpoint. And I don't have this experience either.

In some cases dreams show you the life that you wish to live. They create imaginary worlds. You can have things that you want and are with people that you wish. I think that the wonderful life are in a dream. It is a poetical thought, but I dream it all the time. :wink:

He dreamed of his future wife's cell number.

My psychology teacher told us that he kept having the same dream about people in his dream had the number 100 on them, or they kept talking about 100. And henceforth, the 100 friends was created after the dream. This is his site.

It is nothing but a miracle to me.well,the fascinating dream,unconsciously, I have ever created ,would ultimately turned into a real.amazing?? and when I reviewed such kind of dream, which at once convinced me that I might have supernature power, it possessed a common characteristic----abut to life such as a future circumstance, that would rush into my life after approximately 5--8 years.But that is nothing,if compared with my another bizarre occasion that frequently happend in my daily life--I always meet familar places, words,or plot that had ever occoured in my former dream.specifically,last year summer vacation, I went out with my new friends who was just acquainted with 3 days ago,nevertheless,suddenly,a strange but a familiar picture floated above my mind when I was about to across an intersection lines.clearly,It means ,the streets/plaza/mobiles,all around me are jumped out of my dream at that breath of air.Thereby,I got petrified in no time,because I was shocked by the current night scene --- sideway,shoppingmall,sidebys,even the words my friends said to me,is accurately and impressively identical to my dream which is experienced in my fictional world (I have a super memory)3 years ago.U know, it is a sort of complicated feeling for me to accepte it,however,definitely,it is ture.who can explain that????

my mum always says that there is some significance in every dream that we have seen.Especially whenever she sees a crowd in her dream, she comments it as 'there will be a funeral!'and each time it comes true :shock: Well , i had some dreams which came true, but that is not exactly the same :P I guess most of them are just the reflections of our subconscious mind, i mean i generally see dreams about the things that i have talked about in that day.However, it is fun to hear comments about your dream!

Yes! our dreams always means something.e.g., our hidden wishes, what we observe in our daily life or some time people come in our dreams we miss very much etc.

Some time I do remember my dream, some time don't !

For those people who feel as if they have already seen something in their past dream and they came it across later. May be every body or atleast for sure, so many people have prophetic dreams at different levels in thier life, but these dreams cannot predict future. Mostly people don't realize, remember or focus on them. According to muslim believe (need to confirm) some times you have dreams which are 40th part of the complete prophesy, depending upon your righteousness which goes high and low in your life cycle, e.g., seeing person or place in your dream you happen to visit in future, but it doesn't explain the purpose good or bad. Some time it does, but that you realize mostly after the event, but you cannot judge before time, hence no future prediction. And you feel after a while or a day, as if you have already seen it in your dream which you just experienced or learnt recently.

This kind of experiences also give you the significance, and up to some extend the proof of forces which are beyond your comprehension and top of the most "The One" How created them and all !!!

P.S. Righteousness increases with your good deeds and decreases with your bad deeds !
According to religious believes complete and correct prophesis were only given to Prophets by God(Creater of the creations) through different mediums, e.g, angels or dreams etc.
Few examples of Universally True Quranic prophesis:
- Don't you see the earth and sky was together and I have separated them. (Chapter 21)
- I have created all the creatures from earth and all the living beings are made out of water.(Chapter21)
-I have created sky upon earth for your protection and all the sun, moon and star are floating in their skies.(Chapter21)
-Don't you see sun, moon and trees prostrate to me.(Chapter 3)
-Don't you see that all the skies are standing without pillars (Chapter 21)

I think it’s quit the contrary situation. Our real life has an impact on our dreams. In general, the more stressed we’re in the daytime the more realistic dreams we have at night. Unfortunately, sometimes we just can’t get away from our everyday routine and go on solving different problems while sleeping. I believe that from time to time our dreams might help us to solve some difficult situations, which wasn’t clear for us before. It’s just because we can’t quickly mosaic all the scattered events of our usual day.
Nevertheless, the clue of solving problems while sleeping is in our ability of clearing up our minds before we go to sleep. Only if we get completely relaxed before we fall asleep we might find a decision. We have to throw out all our daily thoughts and let our dreams to do their work…

[b]prophetic:[/b] telling us accurately about something in the future
[b]predict:[/b] state that something will happen in the future[/list][/quote]
