This event happened to me on the morning of 911. I have never talked about this to anyone because there is no way that I can prove it really happened to me. I didn't want people to think that I was just making it up. I'm a very rational adult. I am a retired military officer with 4 college degrees.
On the morning of 911, just before I woke up, I dreamed of running down stairs in a very large building with explosions occurring on the floors above me. It was a very vivid and frightening dream, and very lucid. The fear I was experiencing was very real.
After I woke up, I turned on the TV and saw that the twin towers had just been attacked. I estimated that my dream was occurring just after the first plane was crashing into one of the buildings. As I dreamed all this, I had no outside stimuli to cause my dream such as radio, TV, etc. I didn't hear anyone talking outside my house because, at that time, I lived alone in a house on 2 acres out in the country.
This type of dream has occurred to me over the 9 years since 911, but none have been so eventful--just simple things.
I'd like to know if this was something psychic. Or could I have been reading the thoughts of one of the victims as they tried to escape the actual explosions?
