Since I used my gifts all my life without second thought, I began to write about the most important events to help others understand
Unconscious Thoughts vs Dreams
Simply, it is your intuitive inner voice talking to you through your dreams.
Really think about this for a moment. This is the key to understanding what the Universe is trying to show you. You have to open your heart and mind to let this understanding in.
For as long as I can remember, I have had vivid dreams that came true. These visions have come to me in many ways, daytime and night. As I learned what each kind was, I realized which ones had the biggest and hardest impact on me and my life.
Vision Dreams vs Remote Viewing
Vision Dreams are your inner ability to see what the Universe wants you to know. These thoughts are about either upcoming events or current events happening now. These look and feel real, including the deep emotions felt during the dream. Vision dreams, sometimes called premonitions, or even remote viewing. But to me, it's been a normal way of life. Each unconscious thought or action has ended up being an important life event. Each type of nighttime delusion will be described, followed by a true event.
As I tell of each type of dream I've had, I will tell you the dream so that you can get a better understanding. Each dream seems to have a different focus view. The photo is the way some of my dreams look, but not most of the time. Those that focus like this usually have a stronger impact on me in my personal life.

*Intuitive Visions (Day or Night time)
* Happening Now Dreams
* Warning Dreams
Example of Intuitive Visions
Intuitive Visions are those that come to you as you go about your day. When the Universe wants and needs your attention to do something, a scene will keep flashing before your eyes until you pay attention to it.
I am sharing a very personal intuitive vision I had, that changed my way of thinking. I believe this will help you understand what intuitive visions are.
On the 4th of July, that uneasy, something is wrong, feeling hung over me. It stayed with me for the next three days. Then on the third day, while I was riding around with friends, an image of an old lady laying on her walker kept flashing before my eyes. I tried to ignore it, but it just kept happening, over and over. I couldn't see the face, so I had no idea who it was, or where the house was. Finally, I told my friends to take me home. They dropped me off, and I got in my car. I had no idea where I was going, I just went. Before I knew it, I was at my estranged grandmother's house. I had only been there a few times during my childhood. So this took me by surprise. I didn't know why, but I knocked on the door and heard someone screaming for help. Since the door was locked, and I didn't have a key or phone, I ran to the next door neighbor's house to see if they had a spare. I had no idea why I asked that? I just did. They said it was at the neighbor across the street. I quickly explained and had them call 911 while I ran across the street. The first house, nobody was home. The second house is where I found the key.
The fire department showed up about the same time I had the key in the door. As we entered the house, there was the exact image that was flashing before my eyes. She was barely conscious, dehydrated and near death. The paramedics said one more hour, and she wouldn't have made it. It's because of this that I believe, and I listen more carefully to my visions and dreams.
What is Happening Now Dreams?
Many call this remote viewing or even astral projecting unconsciously to events happening at that moment. These dreams are clear and precise on all the details, just like you are standing there while it is happening. Sometimes overwhelmingly clear details are hard to understand.
I can say this honestly now, but at 16 I had no idea why I saw what I did. Many say what happened to me was remote. I know I didn't like it and wanted them to stop and leave me alone. To help you understand why I felt this way, I will tell you the whole story, but I will leave out the graphic details.
Just remember while reading this, I was only 16 years old when the reality of my gifts presented itself to me. I didn't know how to handle it and back then you didn't talk to people about stuff like that. They would lock you up for it.
I was at school, with a bad gloomy feeling hanging over me. I couldn't shake the dream I had the night before, this feeling just stayed with me all day. It was after second period when my cousin walked up to me and asked if I heard about Richard.
This is where it gets hard for me, so I hope it makes sense when I get done. I have never forgotten that day. I responded with this. "No, but I know he was walking home late from a game, wearing black clothes. I could feel someone was with him, but not sure who it was. A car swerved to the side of the road and hit him and knocked him through the air, and he landed some distance away. I know he died before he could be airlifted to the hospital."
We both just stood there. Finally, my cousin spoke, "How did you know all that?"
I told my cousin that I didn't know how I knew all that, but I just did. But the truth was, I watched it happen as it was happening. It was like I was floating over the scene, but unable to stop it or help at all. It made me feel like a curse. The years that followed didn't get any easier.
What are Warning Dreams?
First, I must explain that warning dreams come differently for each individual. The unconscious mind knows what will and will not get your attention. For me, these dreams had had the strongest impact on my personal beliefs and life.
This time, I will be more general about what happened, and not detailed, because this happened to me a lot in my early twenties and again in my early thirties.
The first time I had a warning dream, I did not know what it was. Every night I would have nightmares so bad I would wake up crying and trembling. This would last for two weeks, and then someone I was close to would die. During that time, I lost many people close to me. When the event happened, I was all cried out and strong for those around me. I believe that was the purpose of those dreams.
I hardly ever have them now, but when they start, I can't focus on anything but the pain I feel. These dreams have been the hardest on me. They helped me understand that the gift I have has as many sides.
