Prophetic Dream of Princess Royal: Dreaming of Princess Diana

Sometimes a dream lands so hard it crushes you. I liked it better before, you complain…

No one knows where dreams come from, but remember this: No one knows where they come from. us Come from either one! I think the answer to both is the same: Who makes us also makes our dreams. Dreams are a meeting place for the visible and invisible worlds that we inhabit simultaneously. Carl Jung wrote that a career in dream study had altered his beliefs about… well, everything. He used to believe that, without exception, all glimpses of the future were probability guesses. However, hard facts (eventually) made me change my mind: one dream after another has disproved my theory by “knowing” and predicting too much, too accurately, about the future. I’ll tell you one of them in a moment.

Decades of dream work have shown me that every dream includes predictive elements, often including events that will occur. during the dream work session itself! This is of course “impossible” and it happens very often. Here is an example.

I used to have an office with a big comfortable sofa that dream group members always flocked to before choosing portable plastic chairs. One particular night we were working on a dream in which a character in the dream was repeating, “What’s wrong with the couch? What’s the problem?” After many minutes exploring the possible meanings of this symbol, we realized that for the first time in several years, nobody I was not sitting on the sofa at all. The dream that jokingly predicted this rare event had been dreamed and recorded several months before and no one had seen it except the dreamer, who did not think of the remark. We all felt that “shiver of truth” when the magic of this mini-miracle fell on us.

There are future references in every dream because dreams come from the eternal side of the psyche. where dreams originate unit and unit transcend all distinctions between self and other, and what we perceive as the the past, present and future coexist in an eternal Now. We all visit and directly experience this reality that the mystics write about in every dream we have and do so every night of our lives!

Futuristic dreams come in two flavors: predictive and prophetic. Most of the future references in our dreams are predictive and based on probability. Yew we continue to drink, (or eat, overwork, argue with our spouse, etc.) the dream scenario shows us where we will go (probably) end after a while. It shows us our trajectory and anticipates our probable outcome.

A compelling look at where are we headed may be the best motivation for a change of direction. Remember Ebenezer Scrooge’s dreams and the many benefits to him (not to mention Tiny Tim!) of warning dreams and visions. Such dreams are moral games that threaten us with our own future! stimulate our Free will to avoid precisely the undesirable outcome that is shown and I felt. Like a ship’s radar “predicting” a future encounter with an iceberg, these are outcomes that can be specifically avoided. because they have been planned.

Notice how this second type of futuristic dream differs from the predictive dream. Here is an example of what is called a prophetic dream: In the fall of 1997, I was approached by a young woman who worked at my gym. She had heard that I worked with dreams and she said that she had “dreamed something really disturbing” and needed my help. She reported the following:

Sometimes I have very vivid dreams and I always write them down in my journal. Well I had one this past Saturday August 30th that is driving me crazy. In my dream, it is night and I see Princess Diana surrounded by a crowd of photographers. To escape them, she gets into a car whose driver is speeding away from her and a bunch of rowdy paparazzi are chasing her. The princess’s car crosses the city and enters a tunnel.

As she exits the tunnel, her car crashes into the base of a clock tower, killing the princess! I feel dazed and horrified in the dream. I look up at the clock tower and see the hands of the clock pointing to the time: 12:24.

Well the next night, 24 hours after I had this dream, Princess Diana was killed in real life just as I had dreamed and it happened. exactly at that moment, to the minute! How could that happen? What does this mean?

Seeing his distress, I replied softly, “Well, for starters, this dream communicates two things to me. One: the world clearly doesn’t work the way most people think it does. And two: you’ve been chosen to experience this fact in a different way”. way you will never forget. This type of dream is always a wake up call and may also have printed some life questions that you need to investigate and accept. That part is up to you.”

…It landed in your lap, you asked for it, you’d secretly been reeling it in for months like a trapped fish.

Most serious adults believe that it is impossible to know the future. And most serious adults are dead wrong. Our waking selves may know little about the future, but the part of us that dreams all night is chock full of information about it. So do dreams stand Predestination or free will? The correct answer seems to be: both. The facts of prophetic dreams and visions suggest that certain events are predestined, fixed, and unchangeable. These events our dreams can specify as the predictions of Nostradamus. With these events, our freedom of choice seems to lie in how we deal with them, not whether.

The many dreams my clients had that predicted the 9/11 attacks (up to a year in advance!) suggest that it was a very high probability, or perhaps an error. predestined event… while the most of the events in our lives are open to our free will and choice. Many negative or even positive events are only possible or even probable, but can be encouraged or prevented by our actions.

Dreams exhibit these two paradoxical visions of our future, since they come from the heart of the Mystery we inhabit, from the source of life. and death, at night and yin day and yang They originate in a consciousness greater than that of us who receive them where apparent “opposites” form a complementary whole, inviting us to make room in our lives for the deep dream wisdom that reaches us in sleep.

Too big for the network. She loves you more than you love her. He wants to stay here forever, Smiling and embracing In the bosom of your days. (The Dream, Naomi Shihab Nye)
