Has anybody had a dream only to have it happen later in life? Has anybody had a dream that seemes to stick with them forever as if it was a message you NEEDED to remember?<br><br>
When I was 13 through 16 I had dreams every night. I always thought they were weird. They were always about me. I would be older in them and doing stuff. The stuff i was doing always seemed mundane. You know, household stuff or whatever. starting at 17 I started to realize that some times I would be doing something and it was an exact dream i had. i dont really have too many dreams anymore, but i still have these experiences. I will be doing something and it will be an exact moment i had dreamt when i was 16. by the way i am now 32. I will be saying the exact same words and will realize the moment as it is happening. just this morning i was helping DH give our cat a flea bath. as i was saying the words i realized that it was exactly a dream i had had. down to the color of the cat. This happens to me on a fairly regular basis.<br><br>
Does this mean I am doing what the Universe intended? Does it mean I am where I am supposed to be? Does anyone else have this happen?

i have warning dreams. i'll wake up and think "that was weird" (or scary) and then when the actual event begins to unfold, i remember and i know what to do about it. not a lot, but often enough that i'd say i *have* them rather than i've had them.<br><br>
in your case, man, i don't know what that means! if you take it is reassurance that, yes, this is the life you're meant to live, i think that's wonderful.

I do, apparently, dream about things that will happen, though I tend not to remember those things until they actually do happen. Not sure that makes much sense, but there it is. It really goes beyond what your basic feeling of deja vu could explain, like "remembering" exact positionings, phrases, an entire scene. I've always wondered if I could try to remember those dreams.<br><br>
Generally the dreams I remember are thoroughly bizarre and very epic in scale. They tend to be really, really detailed, and sometimes involve people I know in real life as well as "dream people," usually doing strange things, though. A lot of times when I relay these dreams to others they think I must be pregnant or something because they're so strange and so detailed. And when I wake it feels like the entire night has been spent in the same dream. Hm. I wish I could think of a good example to give but they all take so long to type out and I don't want to hijack the thread. But there are dreams I remember from when I was five years old.<br><br>
This is a really fascinating topic for me. Maybe I should look more into understanding dreams. Thanks for starting this thread -- I'm anxious to hear from others who maybe are a little more experienced at understanding the insides of their imaginations.

I'm the same way. But for me it's usually small, sort of mundane things ... not everyday sort of things, much more specific than that, but just things that in the grand scheme of things aren't important at all.<br><br>
I don't know, maybe it says something about where my priorities are at more than anything.
