If you’re a regular visitor to the Dream Prophesy blog and Dream Dictionary, you can tell some pretty big changes have taken place over Christmas and New Years. I wanted to find a “theme” which made it easier for my visitors to read on all devices – iPads, iPhones, Tablets, Desktops, etc. I believe this theme will make it easier to read the dream dictionary as well as the blog posts and dream interpretations.
You should also be able to leave comments (and find replies) easier too.
I’d love for you to leave comments in this post telling me the types of dream interpretations you’d like to see MOST this year on Dream Prophesy. If you’ve recently had a dream you’d like interpreted and analyzed, leave it in the comments on this post, too. I will take each dream and interpret it in an upcoming post.
Dream Prophesy Posting Schedule:
Last year was incredibly busy (and a little nuts, if we’re being honest), so my schedule on Dream Prophesy got completely blown out of the water. When I was on Dream Prophesy, I was so busy working on the Dream Dictionary, What Numbers Mean in Dreams, and What Colors Mean in Dreams that the blog aspect was kind of ignored.
I’m back on top of things now and will be updating the blog at least three times a week.
Leave any dreams or dream subject requests in the comments. Thanks! I look forward to a really fun 2017 on Dream Prophesy! ~ Joi (“Joy”)

Prophetic, or precognitive, dreams are dreams which seem to come true. There are almost always explanations for these dreams and I thought it’d be a good time to take a look at a few. While dreams cannot accurately tell the future, at times they do seem to.
In fact, I hear from people every now and then who want to know what it means when dreams DO seem to come true. Below is a sample e-mail:
I know that common sense says that dreams don’t tell the future. I’ve read on your website many times that dreams aren’t prophetic and they don’t tell the future. My brain knows that BUT there have been a lot of times when I dream something and it pretty much comes true.. Maybe not exactly true, but close. Know what I mean?
Like the most recent time this happened. I dreamed that my husband and I had a huge fight over me being friends with my ex husband. In the dream, he yelled and I left the house to go to my mom’s house for the night. About a week later, the huge fight happened. It was because of my friendship with my ex, just like in the dream. I know my husband hates for me to be friends with my ex or to meet him for lunch. The fight was over a lunch we’d had. When I stormed out and got in the car, I thought, “This is just how it happened in my dream.” Can dreams really tell the future? – Chicago Dreamer
This dream is a perfect example of why dreams may seem to be prophetic. First of all, remind yourself that it is YOU who creates the dream, in your subconscious mind. Many times, if you behave in a certain way in the dream, it’s because you know that’s either how you typically behave or how you would behave in that particular situation. In the example above, I’d wager to guess that leaving an argument and going to her mom’s house is the dreamer’s typical response. Therefore, she KNOWS that this is what follows an argument. Naturally, her subconscious mind would create this scenario in her dream.
But how did she know there’d be a fight? Most of the time, people know when something’s “brewing.” We usually know when we’re walking on a thin line or when someone we love is approaching such a line. If we learn to REALLY pay attention to and utilize our dream interpretations, we’ll be able to use these dreams as warnings. They give us a head’s up before something bad happens. It’s then our choice to either heed the advice or shove it to the side and take our chances.
If this dreamer had really analyzed what her dream was trying to tell her (before it was too late), maybe she could have done something to diffuse the situation and avoid the “huge” fight. She even says that she knew her husband hated what she was doing. The dream was a PERFECT time to change the course she was on.
Another dreamer told me that he dreamed he had a car wreck one month and the next month he did. What are the chances that the young man KNEW he drove too fast and/or didn’t pay attention behind the wheel? Again, dreams can be used as tools for self improvement (and in this case, self protection!). We simply have to pay closer attention to the dream before it’s too late. Again, as I said above, we know very well when something is brewing because we’re part of the brewing process.
It’s worth noting that just as some people are nicer or neater than other people, some individuals are more perceptive than other individuals. People who are keenly perceptive and very “in touch” with themselves and others around them are more apt to have these types of dreams. Perceptive people pick up on emotions, potential problems, and growing tensions easier than other people. Someone who is very tuned into the world around them is the perfect type of person to have what appear to be prophetic dreams.
These people are luckier than they probably even realize because their dreams give them the perfect opportunity to change their course and, hopefully (to an extent) alter the negative outcome.
- They can stop doing things they know make other people mad.
- They can stop doing things that hurt others.
- They can slow down when behind the wheel of a car (and certainly make sure they don’t text or drive recklessly!).
Can you see why I’m so excited about dream interpretation?! We can use our dreams to LITERALLY make our lives and ourselves better. Have YOU ever had a dream that seemed to come true? Did you ever have a troubling dream, then alter your actions to avoid trouble? Share in the comments!
Do dreams come true?
Are my dreams trying to tell me something?
Does dreaming of death mean that someone’s going to die?
If I dream of losing something, will the dream come true?
What is dream prophesy?!
All viable questions. All questions dreamologists hear all day long – and dreamers wonder about each night. The questions are confusing and can be hard to sort out, but the answer is pretty simple, actually…. once you understand the initial contradiction!
Dream Prophesy deals with the phenomenon of your dreams “playing out” or “coming true” in a way. To be certain, sometimes they do! President Abraham Lincoln dreamed of being assassinated. Countless people have dreamed about fighting with a loved one, only to find themselves in the middle of an epic disagreement hours later.
I read (and experience first hand) accounts of fascinating situations of dreams seemingly coming true. Although I KNOW that we control our own destiny, I also know that our dreams sometimes do come true – or at least come true in some fashion. If I didn’t believe this, would I have named my dream website Dream Prophesy?
So, you may wonder, why do I countlessly (on this very dream website!) teach and preach that dreams don’t tell the future? That dreams don’t control our destiny?
Here’s the truth… the whole truth…. and nothing but the truth. We DO control our future, our dreams DO NOT. If we dream of losing something, we don’t necessarily have to lose our keys (or cellphone, papers, book…) on an upcoming day. If we dream of losing something, it’s because our mind is recognizing and warning us about something troublesome to it: We’re overwhelmed and the stage is being set for something to happen – such as losing something. When we dream about losing things, our mind is telling us to get our sh-– together!
If after having one of these dreams, we actually lose our car keys – we either didn’t heed the dreams warning or didn’t act upon it soon enough.
Here’s another scenario. I had a dream interpretation request submitted through the contact form about a year ago. The woman explained that she’d been dreaming that she kept fighting with her husband. The most recent dream involved divorce and she was greatly troubled by how “real” the dream felt to her.
She wanted to know if this dream meant big trouble for her marriage. I told her that it did if she didn’t try to fix what was obviously troubling her subconscious mind. After a few e-mails back and forth, she let the cat out of the bag…. and it was a mother in law!
Seems that her mother in law was causing a few simple little spats between her and her husband. Her resentment was building and building. Her dreams were letting her know that she needed to confront these feelings. Fortunately, she did just that by having a good, long talk with her husband (after baking him his favorite meal and even his favorite cookies…. I hear from such smart people.).
Future trouble was averted – and, as she put it, her husband told her that his mother was becoming a “thorn in” his side as well!
Now, if this dreamer had ignored her dreams – without trying to figure out the meaning behind them, she would not have made this meal, the cookies, or the first move. She’d have kept going along, quietly, letting the resentment and anger build… until… you guessed it – a huge fight took place.
Then, to a bystander, it would have looked like the dreams came true – that the dreams were prophetic. Not exactly. We are always in control.
Another scenario: If a young boy dreams that he has a car wreck, it could be his mind “processing” all the warnings his parents (and possibly even his girlfriend) give him about his speeding. His mind could be letting him know (while he’s asleep and less likely to protest the idea) that he needs to slow down. If he heeds this warning – the dream prophesy, if you will, and slows down, his risk of having a wreck will go down.
If he doesn’t heed the warning… well, speeding young boys often find themselves in fender benders!
Let’s go back to the White House with President Abraham Lincoln. He had a famous dream where he was assassinated. No duh? He was President during a time of total turmoil and upheaval. He was a highly controversial man during that time. We know him as nothing but a complete HERO, but some poor souls who didn’t know any better saw him as a villain.
He knew that. He saw the looks on some haters’ faces, he read the papers, and he (no doubt) even had a few threats. He knew the possibility and likelihood of being killed existed. As someone who adores President Abraham Lincoln (I collect everything I can get my hands on related to him in any way) – I sometimes get lost in this thought: What if he had “heeded” this dream and taken extra precaution. What if, for the time being – while so many people were still so out of sorts – he’d laid low, upped his protection, etc?
I love to think about what other impacts this man would have had on history.
Sadly, his dream did prove to be prophetic and he was murdered by a cowardly moron.
As with our cookie baking wife, our speedster, and our heroic president – their dreams let them know one thing: That the STAGE WAS SET for a particular thing to happen.
As a huge animal lover, I read a lot of books by Allen & Linda Anderson (we extreme animal lovers have to stick together, right?). I was zipping along through their latest book, Angel Animals – Book of Inspiration when I came to a story that spoke to BOTH the dreamologist and the animal lover.
An iguana parent (Darry) from North Carolina was telling the story of their pet iguana, Bubbette. When Bubbette was a baby, Darry had a very troubling dream one night. She dreamed that Bubbette got into the garbage disposal and was killed. The dream was so realistic and frightening that she literally woke up crying. Grisly
Several months passed and Darry was working in the kitchen one day, with Bubbette on her shoulder. Darry cleared dishes, and generally took care of things that we all do after a meal – with Bubbette riding happily on her shoulder.
What happened next really makes the hair on your arms sit up:
I pushed scraps down the garbage disposal and switched it on. When I turned around to pick up more dishes, I had a flashback of that dream. Immediately, I spun back to the sink and flicked off the disposal – just in time. Bubbette, for the first time ever, had taken a flying leap off my shoulder into the sink. I caught her just as she was going down the disposal drain.
If I had not remembered that dream, Bubbette probably would have fallen into the garbage disposal before I could realize what was happening. She was very small at the time, and would have slid easily into the hole and met an untimely demise.
Thank goodness the little cutie was spared by her mom’s dream!
I found something else fascinating about the dream. This Iguana lover spends a great deal of time promoting the safety and care of Iguanas. She belongs to a rescue group that discourages people from adopting iguanas until they’ve read “Iguanas for Dummies” (great, great advice, by the way – A LOT more goes into bringing an iguana into your family than you’d think). This concern and compassion for this animal made its way into her dream, and saved her own little girl in the process!
This is just another clear example of why I tell people, “Never, ever ignore your dreams.”
