Premonition Nightmare


About ten years ago I was having a lucid dream where I was on the ground and a man was on top of me, trying to strangle me with a multi-coloured stripey scarf. I woke up to find myself thumping my sleepy husband who was a bit dazed to say the least. My heart was racing and I was sweaty too. He said to me what are you doing. I said there was a man trying to strangle me in my dream. Hubby thought I was nuts and said it was a bad nightmare. I told my sister about it too later that day as it was such a vivid dream, and I still felt shaken up a bit.

Anyway, a couple of weeks went by and news about an 18 year old girl went missing on her way to college came up on the tv screens.

It turns out the last person to see her was the bus driver, who was on route to where her college was.

Upon being questioned by police, he admitted strangling her with a scarf after she spurned his advances. Her body was found a few days later. This happened local to where I live and when I realized I'd probably dreamt about this happening, it made me feel weird, strange. How do you deal with something like this? Neither my husband or Sister mentioned it again. They don't know what to make of it. It's not the first time I've dreamt about future events, but I have to say it's been the most disturbing, prolific dream like that. I've noticed the more stressed I am, I tend not to get them. But I would be interested to know other peoples thoughts on what it means. Can it be developed? Is it common?

I have had this happen a sometimes, but most notably regarding one certain family member, my dad. The first time it happened I was in the fourth grade. I'd been having lucid dreams and astral projections frequently for as long as I could remember (even though I didn't really understand them at all, or the differences), and still do... But this was different. I had a dream that I was walking around my house at night and came around the corner into the kitchen. There, I saw my parents, dressed in white, moving boxes out of the house. Out of the front door, there is a waist-high bannister that blocks off about a one story drop down to the cement stairway leading to the basement door. I just stand there and watch them for a minute. Then they pick up a big box, start to take it outside, and as they move it, my dad falls over the banister down a story and lands on the cement stairwell. Red starts seeping out of his white clothes at his heart. I run to my mom and tell her we need to do something to help him... But she just keeps picking up boxes and moving them out by herself. I plead with her to do something, and she turns to me and tells me that there is nothing she can do to change it, and keeps grabbing boxes and moving them out. The dream felt different than what I'd usually have, and it stuck with me and made me feel really uncomfortable. The next day my dad didn't come home from work. He'd had a heart attack while he was driving home, and luckily pulled into a fire station where they dealt with it and transferred him to the hospital. I knew, even as a kid, that my dream meant something. Fast forward, I'm 18. I'd just moved out of my parent's house. I had the dream again, to the tee. It was about ten o'clock at night, and I couldn't sleep. I thought about calling my parent's house but it was late and I thought maybe I was just being silly. Finally about an hour later I decided to just do it, to make sure. When I went to pick the phone up to call, it started ringing. It was my mom, telling me that my dad had had a heart attack, and that the paramedics had arrived and were taking him to the hospital, and for me to meet her there. Again, same thing at about 24. He's had three heart attacks, and every time, I have the dream either the same night or the night before. I've had the same dream once with a difference, in it he wasn't bleeding from the chest, but from his backside... And a few days later he found out he had colon cancer. That's four total for just this one person. I'm not sure what the connection is with my dad this way, but after these four experiences, I take it seriously. I've had other similar dreams regarding events, but much like these dreams regarding my dad, they never seem to be cut and dry. They're always rather cryptic, and seem to need hindsight to understand what they mean. With my dad? Not cryptic anymore, only because I get it because always the same... And only him. I've had other family members with some pretty serious issues, but nothing. For some reason, he's the only one I dream about. Does that make sense to anyone? I'm not sure why it's specifically just him, or why at all. Or why it's always the same dream. Sometimes the dreams are different, but they never seem to be about a specific person except for when it's my dad. Weird? Anyone?

Hi Chloesmum,
This happens to me too. I understand what you're probably feeling.
The way I usually handle it is by thinking about it. Pushing the thoughts away will only make you feel worse. Also, knowing it isn't your fault is important. This was an evil act that someone else did. I usually comfort myself by the belief that there are so many that someday I will be able to help one of the people who appear in my visions.
If this happens a lot, it can also help to write these things down somewhere, keep records. Some people can learn to control it, but I haven't mastered that yet.
I wish you well,
