Do you ever feel like you’ve been somewhere before? Not just being in the place, but the whole experience, the people you interact with, what they’re doing, what you’re experiencing, everything? That is often what people Déjà Vu (french for already seen), or premonitions.
In this tip we are going to be going over the 3 steps you can take to use your dreams to peek into the future.
When my son, Chris, was about 6 years old, he ran to me one morning crying. I asked, “What’s the matter?” He said, “Mommy, Mommy, I had a very, very bad dream. I dreamt that you were very sick, and they took you away in an ambulance.” He was so shaken, and as he never complained of bad dreams before, I was surprised. He hugged me so tightly. I reassured him, I wasn’t sick, and I didn’t need to go anywhere in an ambulance.
Four years later, I had long forgotten his bad dream, when I came down with a sudden serious illness and had to be taken to the hospital in the middle of the night by ambulance. I ended up staying in the hospital for a long time with a heart infection. It was a very traumatic experience for Chris, being only 10 years old. What was more surprising was Chris reminded me of his very bad dream and said that what happened in his dream actually happened in real life. From the policeman who first came to the house and stood in the hallway, to the paramedics who took me away, it was all exactly the same. He said his dream was the same right down to where he was sitting, what they said, how they were standing and what they looked like.
What is really interesting is that he told me the dream was recurring and that as the time got closer to the actual event, his dreams became more and more vivid and more and more detailed. That was fascinating to me. It seems that energies coalesce into making a future possible reality happen into an actual physical event.
You may have experienced déjà vu where you don’t remember your dream before an event happens, but when you experience an event you think, “Wait, I’ve been here before doing this exact thing!”
What does it mean? What I think it means is that déjà vu experiences may indicate an important time event in your life, even if the moment seems mundane. Perhaps it is a milestone or marker for you and your soul. Remember though, it’s only information, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do something about it.
How can you capture your déjà vu dreams and perhaps make use of them before the event happens?
Here are the 3-steps to capture your déjà vu dreams:
1 – Set an Intention
Set an intention and pay attention before you go to sleep that you are going to remember your dreams. Be on the lookout for very vivid or what they call lucid dreams, as if they were real. Write your dreams down right away when you wake up.
2 – Take Notice
Start to notice which these dreams are more vivid or lucid and which ones come true and make a note about them in your dream journal.
3 – Real Life Happenings
Notice when your déjà vu happens in real life and write down what your experience was, where it happened, what it felt like, who was there, what you felt was part of your dream.
This trains your mind and your brain to notice when your déjà vu dream happens before the event and you will be able to notice it telling you about the future.
Your dreams may actually be telling you about the future, though again, it’s just information. If you have a premonition dream, it doesn’t mean you need to do something about it. Just be aware and carry on with your daily life.
