My earliest recollection of realization of my dreams coming true was about 9 years of age, I believe. I dream of earthquakes and tidal waves mainly. I would tell my mother of them as they occurred yet she didn't really pay attention. At about 11 years old, I had one of these dreams. We lived in San Diego, California at the time and lived on the "cliffs" area. I guess I finally became determined to 'make' my mother listen this time by sitting her down to pay full attention. I told her "last night, mom, I had another earthquake dream. And this time- so that you believe me- It is going to happen this coming Friday". Well, yes it happened but all I got from her was that it was just a coincidence. I think I tried to tell her of other occurrences to come but eventually I gave up. See, the dreams don't happen all the time. And I cannot tell when to expect one. But they do. I am now older, of course, and now will just bring it up to whomever is around me the following day or so but it's forgotten by that person when I try to tell them "do you remember me telling you?".
Every one of the dreams are different and as time has gone by I now can almost decipher them by how catastrophic it is, how long it will be, how many 'felt' aftershocks, sometimes almost the exact reading of the 'Richter Scale', and most importantly is if it will be near me or far away. One of these ways is by seeing a certain 'size' of a tidal wave, or the damage during the quakes in the dreams. This is the first time I have EVER written about this. My most recent dream was very, very descriptive. I'm actually afraid to detail it as I don't wish for it to happen. I also don't wish to look a 'fool'.
This dream gives me an actual number of several simultaneous earthquakes occurring globally. I see televisions 'on' through a store window with the world reports occurring. The number was 17. From what I have learned from deciphering my own dreams, this is to occur within the year. I have more to describe but this is all I feel comfortable with for now. It doesn't seem to be an 'end of the world' dream. Just sadly devastating and destructive. The tidal wave near me was very fast. I awoke while running for cover on a cement stairway. My heart never pounded so much.
