What Do I Do With This Premonition?


I had a dream the other night that has stuck with me, and I don't know what to do with it.

First, I must explain that I dream every night, in color, and all my dreams are vivid and detailed, ranging from excruciatingly terrifying to absolutely elating. I have pregonitive dreams as well, I just cannot discern with any clarity which are benign and which are destined to occur.

That being said, the other night I had a dream which seemed to last the entire length of my sleep, even though I somewhat awoke several times through the night. From what I recall it went like this:

I was in my house, and my doorbell rang. I looked out the side window, and it was my ex husbands fiance. (I have only met her once, they don't live near me) I thought to myself "Why is she at my door? This is weird". I opened the door and she was crying, telling me someone died. I let her in. Then my phone rang. I looked at the call ID and it was my mom. I answered and she was very upset, she told me something happened to my dad. I knew already but I asked. She told me he died. She did not tell me how but I somehow knew it was some type of age issue, like a heart attack. Anyway, I spent the rest of my very long dream making phone calls to family and friends giving them the news, making arrangements to get back home, and figuring out how to tell my kids their grandfather was dead. When I finally awoke for good in the morning, I was very disturbed, glad it was a dream but worried it was soon to be reality.

I went on with my day, my mom called in the A.M. And I was scared to answer it, but did and everything was ok (sigh of relief). I did not tell her of my dream.

This is the strange part. I spoke with my ex later in the day to figure out visiting arrangements for my kids next week and he said, "I'm not sure what what we are doing, things have changed because Pam's (name changed) brother just died." I froze and my piece of dream that I thought meant nothing came flooding back to me. My ex knows of my gifts so I told him, "I dreamed she was at my door last night and told me someone died".

Now I do this often so it doesn't really scare me, but I was perplexed as to why I would dream of her, and why did it seem so significant? So now I am wondering if the part with my father is also true? It does not bother me so much as he is in his late 60's and it would not be a shock, but what bugs me is: did I see the future and why? Am I supposed to tell my parents? I don't feel like I should but I just don't understand what I am supposed to DO with the things I see and how I can tell what is premonition and what is just a dream?

As I've always said about dreams they can mean a lot of things (see my article called here:

Our subconscious mind is highly symbolic and it's hard to get exact details (there is a reason for this, keep reading). For example, you picked up "crash, truck, family impacted." So your first hunch was to warn your father and then it ends up being a friend of the family. We can be like bulls in life's china shop if we aren't careful.

It is very caring and warm that you want to help people but we have to be careful playing God. All of our deaths are known at all times by the "higher ups". Yet life is allowed to happen naturally unless there is a special purpose that we are re-routed from a particular experience (are you qualified to decide that? Am I?). It could be a wake-up call, specific karmic ties that still need to be fulfilled, etc. So to want to intervene with a person's destiny should be contemplated carefully. You do not know consciously what everyone has to endure. To this point, very few of the most famous psychics ever intervene. They wait to be asked.

If you still feel compelled to save all that you can from their pre-destined life, you have to fine tune your consciousness. The more evolved we are, the more literal our dreams are. Optimally, you never lose consciousness and it's one very evolved stream of existence. There is no sleep and no wake just Being. But at this point, you'll probably see things differently so it ends up being a catch-22.

I'll share a quick story with you. I was in a woman's support group for awhile and one of the gals showed up very upset because her brother's girlfriend died. She wailed about how awful God was and how could this happen. She even said, "My brother was such a jerk to women and treated them so badly but after this, he really realized how to love and cherish what you have." So I replied, "Then the experience was a good thing. Your brother would have stayed a heel and no real development would have occurred." She couldn't understand that her brother had to endure this. He is now a much better man for the experience. This was part of his life lesson. Who was to rob him of that?

Our actions are like dominos. You only know your own piece of that cascading effect. Every action results in another and so on and so on. You ripple the pond which your decisions so be careful about that.

I treat it as: Share dreams if compelled to do so, but do not get attached to the outcome. I can almost guaranteed you that if you started telling every person you think will be affected, few will listen or they will forget. So if you start feeling miserable because of this, then you're not getting the higher message.

Replying to you here for 2 reasons- One I wanted to read more about your gift- I think you do have together more then you think. If not your more accepting of the nature it does come. 2 thanks for your response to mine. It does ease my mind a bit to know that you understand. I didn't take what you said harshly. I know that some of what I said in the actual post sounds different then what I truly feel. But I am having a hard time writing it (Which for one is a big deal being that I am a writer by nature). There is more I want to say at the moment in response to a few of your stories and I will get back to them in a bit. But I wanted to thank you again.

AnneV, I agree, I don't think telling my father would do any good, and he probably would not believe me anyway. However, it is the part you said about it being a crash or something that is what bothers me. I left out some details of my dream, as I can't always remember them in order or fully when I write. But there was also a part in which I saw a truck mangled. I thought it was to do with my ex's fiance, since when he told me her brother died he said he was hit by a car. I don't think I could have stopped that because it happened before I dreamed it.
Just a few hours ago my husband got a phone call that a family friend was killed this morning in an accident. When he told me, I didn't think anything of it because he drives a black car. Then he told me that he was driving on old pick up truck, and again, my dream flashed to me. It had to have been his truck I saw. How do I get to where when I see things I can see who and more details so that I CAN warn them? I could have told him to be careful if I knew it was him. He left behind 6 children and now I am just sitting here so devestated that I see some, but not enough to help anyone.

I agree with Anne that stress can kill, and so can negative expectations. Unfortunately, I don't know if holding back something you know is the right thing to do, and here's why: There's probably a reason that you tuned into this information. Either you need to help him, or you're just in tune with what's going to happen. I can't say whether or not the future is set in stone, as some things appear to be; but I do think that some events can be altered, and that you can jump onto a better path if necessary.
Maybe there's a way for you to help him if he is open to your suggestions or advice.
Sometimes I think when we know something we are responsible for that knowledge. If you're not comfortable with telling him, "I had a dream that your life was in danger," then just try to say it in another way and just be compassionate. 60 years old isn't that old! If he is unhealthy, then a family member can help him to care about his health again. Maybe that's what you can do. Just think about the most un-invasive, gentle way of helping him think about his well-being. If you're going to tell him, be gentle and loving, not shocking or mysterious.

I would ask him to go get a check up. It is your father. If you don't tell him about the dream just tell him you don't know why but you are worried and ask him to do it for you.
He will. If it was me in his shoes I would.

I personally would not tell your father about your dream. Stress is a huge killer and I don't think this will cause him peace, you know? If it's his time to go, then I'd say let it be. It would be different if the dream entailed something like a plane he was on that went down or something avoidable but you didn't get those specifics so I think it would do more harm than good.

We all die and it's a natural part of life. You will have to prepare yourself eventually for the inevitable. I'd take this as a reminder (and to all of us) to cherish our family and not take them for granted and always tell them how much you love them.
