Everyone has experienced it. Everyone has experienced dreams so powerful that they remember them all day, and then are surprised when events from the dream materialize in reality. This is called a psychic dream. Psychic dreams are not the things of fantasy; they are matters of truth related to the mental capabilities and the subconscious aspects of the mind.
The subconscious mind is always working in ways that one does not normally think about. These ways include the interpretation of symbols, the remembering of obscure information that does not seem to be related to anything, and the dreaming at night. Dreams are often used as a manner for the subconscious to communicate with the conscious mind. Psychic dreams are the dreams that are powerful messages from the subconscious to the conscious that indicate an event that should occur.
The subconscious mind is an interesting, if complicated energy. This mind is working underneath the conscious mind. It takes in all of the information of the conscious mind but is not able to communicate its thoughts through normal language and therefore must rely upon symbols and dreams to communicate effectively.
Often people will go to bed with a though on their conscious minds. As sleep descends upon the individual, the subconscious mind often takes this thought and expands upon it. This can result in a dream related to that thought or a single event. Using the information that the subconscious mind has gathered through the conscious mind, symbols and actions are often shown in great detail through out the dream stages of the individual. In some cases, these dreams can be as powerful as for the person to believe that he or she did something in the “outside” world that was really done in the dream world.
In the event that the dream portrays something that does happen in the real world, the term psychic dreams is often used. This also goes for the changing of an action to stop the event from occurring. While for some, this is a strange phenomenon that does not mean anything, for others, it is something that is truly worth looking into. After all, the mind is a powerful thing and no one should dismiss anything it has to offer outright.
