    I haven't had TV for 10 years. Pretty much only read. SO has anyone else been having dreams,nightmares,visions bout people they don't know. What makes it disturbing is its always about flour ,computers and kids and people looking for food. Its been the last couple month and I couldn't tell you the last time I had a dream I remembered before that. Its all very "Max Headroom" Style stuff

    This morning I was laying in bed trying to decide if I wanted to get up :) Nodding off and the next thing I know there are these people around and this grungy little blonde girl in pink dress eating out of a grungy old Cheetos bag looking up at me. I decided it was time to get out of bed.

    TN, it might be you're experiencing episodes of hypnagogic or hypnopompic states of hallucinatory consciousness, or both. Both states are very common with most people during the just falling asleep state or just waking up state and can be brought on more intensively by stress or worry. Hypnagogia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Well the bible says in the last days old men will dream dreams. Doesn't say what kind :) And most know I don't think like normal stuff. :) And with all the news that comes to me ,what i read in history and i see what everybody is writing on both sides and its a different reality. I see an actual reality instead of what everyone sees with their "positive thinking" rose colored glasses. Because what is called positive thinking is really denying reality. That is easy to see by where we are at. And most of the time what I see comes true although its generally a ways off. What is going on now I was catching hell for in the 80's, 90's when I would prophecy :) it. And told I was negative and crazy. Actually I am positive type that sees what can be done even the way things are. Most "positive people" see things that can be done if only this or that would change and this or that was available. And once again that can be seen in the constant need for this that or something. Call it consumerism. We never take a breath to make what we have right and instead set ourselves up for more and bigger falling. And that is what is happening now. The powers that be are just constantly whitewashing things and people are rationalizing their circumstance because of it. I wonder if what i am seeing is not the future

    They hated JOhn the Baptist and you rarely hear anyone quote him but he was on target :)

    I know this will sound odd, but I do get visions of specific people fairly often.

    I am of one of the Christian denominations that believe in intercessory prayer (praying for others). So of course, I often pray for people I know who are having trouble or people I hear about who are struggling with something.

    However, about 30 years ago I began to see...visions...I guess you would call them, during that hypnogogic period right before falling asleep. They were in color, extremely detailed and clear, and almost always of people I don't know. In the vision, one part of the person or one action that they were performing seemed to really draw my attention, rarely anything obviously wrong. More like a focus on their eyes or their arm or them cooking or something.

    At first I didn't have any idea what to do, so I decided to just pray for that person and about the thing that caught my focus.

    After years of this occurring probably 2 - 3 times per week, only one person at a time, I finally envisioned someone I knew, although I didn't know him really well, and the focus was on his lips and mouth. I spoke the next day to his mother-in-law, and asked if he was okay. She started crying and pulled me aside. He was a health care worker and had been working with a test group of HIV+ patients. But he had started having some unusual blisters in his mouth and on his lips (I hadn't seen or heard about him for several months prior to his starting this work.). The doctors didn't know what it was, but did determine it was airborne - particularly after a couple of the other workers showed up with the same symptom.

    A few days after I spoke with the MIL, the condition completely cleared up in all those affected. The doctors never did find out exactly what it was or have any idea why it went away.

    I have no idea who the vast majority of those I pray for are, or whether or how my prayers have any impact on their lives. On occasion, my areas of focus seem more prep oriented, but I usually don't get any details about the situation other than the focus area.

    Who knows? But I certainly believe there is much more to life than most of us now recognize or than science documents.

    I have had recurring dreams for many years that have involved food shortages, invasion and either running or hiding. Vehicles never work in the dreams or it is too dangerous to be on the road. One set of dreams in particular had a woman and two children in them, a girl about 8 and a newborn. The woman is now my daughter-in-law, and I have a granddaughter who is 6. In the dream, we were living in mountains in a spot hidden from the valley. We came and went either on foot or by horse, but never all left at once and varied the routes. Everything had to be locked down at night and blacked out, and food was very scarce and choice very limited. We were living mostly on cabbage, potatoes and corn bread with little or no salt because salt was not available. Sugar wasn't either.

    Other dreams had involved the Chinese army being in the area and we were trying to get through them to go north. These dreams were not frightening.

    The one that was unsettling was no vehicles worked and people on foot were flooding the area from the south. Shells were exploding a distance from our house. One man ran up to me and asked me for water. He said he'd been running for 40 miles carrying his toddler daughter in a back pack trying to get her to safety. He asked for help taking her from his back and said his wife and 4 year old son had been shot by the Chinese or by the Mexicans---their armies were together. When we took the little girl out of the backpack she had been shot and was dead. He cried and said he had no reason to live. We asked him to leave with us on the horses and he said he'd rather just stay there and die. It was a very realistic dream. I could feel the temperature, feel his tears and his daughter's cold flesh and smell her blood, hear the horses, the shell blasts, people screaming. It was cold in the dream but in reality it was a very hot humid night and we had no air conditioning.

    I don't know if any of it will ever come true, but my adult children and I go over evacuation plans, meeting points, etc. periodically. We have had many similar or exactly matching dreams on the same night. We are PARANOID!!!!!!!!!

    Better safe than sorry, better to prepare for the worst.....if anything less happens you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    My girlfriend has been complaining of similar dreams lately. Seems several of her friends are also having very strange, very detailed dreams lately. I personally haven't slept more than 2 straight hours in several months so there's really no difference between awake and dreaming to me anymore... LOL

    I've had similar dreams. I thought it was just the border violence getting to me since we only live 30 miles from it. Hubby hasn't ridden his horse in 2yrs and wants to sell her but it makes me nervous to even consider it. In my dreams they are our only source of transportation because the roads were to dangerous.

    I am fascinated by dreams.
    They speak volumes to us.
    So much of what we experience consciously, and are afraid to talk about, or don't want to accept; shows itself in our dreams.

    Example:
    Man is under a lot of stress
    *Job is on the line / company is about to close up shop
    Not a lot of employment opportunities around.
    *In debt from living a foolish life style, finding it hard to pay the bills
    *Marriage is shaky
    *Kids are going to college in the next couple of years
    *Both cars have 200K+ miles on them and making noises.....

    So he dreams about his childhood home. He dreams about his childhood friends.
    He dreams about places in his childhood. He dreams in color and vividly.
    He dreams about his parents, as they appeared, in his young childhood........

    Because deep in his mind, he longs for the times of freedom, innocence, no responsibility, care free living......that his childhood provided him.

    I love dreams.......that is one of the things I really want to study more deeply.

    It was because of a vision/dream that I began prepping several years ago. I think there are certain dreams that God uses to get our attention. They're different than regular dreams, although I can't explain the differences.
