To start let me say that my father has always had dreams that come true. When someone he knows is pregnant, he knows before they do. He told me that I was pregnant a week before I took the test. He also told my mom and her sisters when they were teenagers how many children they would have, the genders and the order. All came true.
Now me on the other hand have had some experiences like some others on this site. I have a dream and couple months later I find myself in the same dream but awake. Today was different. I woke up early this morning, rolled over went back to sleep. From then and until I woke up again I dreamt that I was single (I'm currently married) and was contacting an ex boyfriend. (I haven't seen him in months) I called him on the phone and we talked about how we once were in love and that we were both still in love. I woke up missing him. I woke up feeling like we had just broken up all over again. Later today I was doing some shopping. I kept feeling like my ex was close to me. My heart pounded and I got butterflies like I did in the past when I was with him. I left that store and was on my way to the next. The light turned green, I turned left... Right behind a car that looked just like his. I speed up, got next to the car, and there he was! And he went to the same store I was going to (I waited until he came back out and left before I got out of my car to go in.)
Can anybody explain this to me? It would make since if I were to see him at the store then dream about him that night. But to dream about him and then the next day see him, after I haven't seen him in forever?
