Recurring dreams can be as frightening as a night terror when you don’t understand what they mean. It might even feel like you’re the only person who experiences them, whether they are dreams that feel real (lucid dreams) or premonition dreams. That really isn’t the case though. Most people will experience them at various stages of life. The key is to discover what your recurring dream might be trying to tell you.
While many people around the world scoff at the idea of premonition dreams, many people are thought to have had them—even the skeptics. The thing to keep in mind about premonition dreams is that they aren’t always the foretelling of bad things to happen in your life. Sometimes, they bring good news. Unfortunately, those dreams are rarely credited for the premonitions of good fortune they really are.
The science behind dreams is complex, and certainly not clear-cut. While there are the believers that think our dreams — including premonition dreams — mean something, there are other naysayers who don’t.
What is a Premonition Dream?
How do you know a dream you’re having is a premonition dream? What makes it different from other dreams you have? Sometimes a dream is just a dream, right? Premonition dreams are certainly different from lucid dreams, which is the name of the type of dream coined by Frederick van Eeden, and describes the act of dreaming while knowing you are dreaming. However, when dreams foretell a future event, warn of a major health crisis or death (like they did in the Sandra Bullock 2007 film “Premonition“), seem abnormally vivid, recurs over several nights, is shared by others, or occurs in combination with physical symptoms, the chances are that it’s a premonition dream.
