Allow me to start by letting you know a bit about myself. I am a 19 year old student at the University of Utah. I am a member of the Chi Omega sorority, graduated top of my class in high school, and have always had many different friend groups.
A couple of years ago I had a vivid dream about a group of friends and I driving in a friend's car to a fast food restaurant near my house. We were scared about a man in the back corner of the restaurant, and in the dream he proceeded to murder each one of my friends. I got a few vivid pictures of the man in my head (I also have a photographic memory), and woke up 6 times crying in this continuing dream. I forgot about the dream for 6 months, and then with the same group of friends I went to the same restaurant. The man was seated in the same seat in the back, and with tears in my eyes I insisted that my friends and I leave the restaurant before we had ordered. I never saw him again, and all of my friends are still alive.
Since then, I have earned a title of "guided" from my friends. Any time I am lost I can trust my instincts and turn down back roads or side roads and always end up where I was trying to go. I avoid traffic jams from car crashes without even trying, and can decide where to turn so that I will have all green lights en route. I can almost always tell my friends where they misplaced an item even if I've never been in the vicinity of the item.
But all of those things are fairly inconsequential compared to the dreams and visions I've had recently. When my roommate's boyfriend visited from California I warned her not to eat at a local restaurant with her boyfriend, because I had a dream that she would run into a boy she went out with while she and her boyfriend were having a lot of relationship problems. He told her that he couldn't hang out this weekend, but he would love to see her Sunday night. And her boyfriend would want to take a walk in the park across the street from the cafe. 20 minutes later, on the way to pick up her boyfriend from the airport, my roommate received a text from the other boy saying that he hoped he could see her Sunday night because he was busy the entire weekend. We both laughed it off, saying that the only part of the dream that was true was that he wanted to see her Sunday. It was a stretch, but could still be deemed a coincidence. Then her boyfriend wanted to go the the cafe on Sunday morning. The couple did run into her other love interest. And the boyfriend did want to walk in the park across the street, and it caused a fight that eventually broke them up. The details were far too exact to be just a coincidence anymore.
Shortly after, I decided to write down my dreams. I dreamt about a lecture in a class a friend was taking. She ended up getting swine flu the week after, and I asked what she was learning in the class. The topic was pretty near to what I had dreamt, so when I contacted the professor for my friends and got the notes, I wasn't shocked to see that my dream notes and his lecture notes were nearly identical.
I think what is the most strange about these situations is they rarely actually involve me, and seem to be able to help somehow. They are actually always about the future, never the past. But the reason why I joined this group was my latest vision.
It occurred while I was completely awake which was different. I was driving in my car on the way to pick up a date for a sorority dance. I was on I-215 northbound near 3600 south when I looked to my right and saw a boy in my passenger seat. He was merely looking at me. I looked back at the road and when I looked again he was pointing. To my left I saw a blue and white dodge truck. He said the word "him" in my ear, and then disappeared. I then saw him walking on the shoulder of the road, and then disappeared once I looked back at the road. This happened October 23rd. Yesterday, October 25th, a boy named Brayden was killed in a hit and run accident on 3500 south on I-215. He was a construction worker walking in the shoulder around the same time I was driving 2 days before. After seeing this report on the news, I searched facebook and myspace for Brayden. I found him on facebook, and he is the same boy who was in my car. They made an arrest on the owner of a blue and white dodge today.
These are a few of the more powerful events that have happened to me. Since I am now seeing visions when I am awake, I would like to know how I can start trying to understand or control these visions and dreams. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
