Ten Years After

Dreamed before 1951

Precognitive ESP experiences do not usually cover the grand sweeps of time--decades or centuries--often involved in traditional prophecy. Many are fulfilled within minutes, hours or days. This time element, however, geared it would seem to the day-to-day life of men rather than to the destiny of man, is elastic and varies from case to case. Sometimes the interval between the [psychic] experience and the fulfillment may be years.

A man in New York dreamed he was driving his car (even though at the time he did not own a car) down the street of his parents' home. It was night, and there was snow on the ground, although it was not winter when he had the dream. He thought he drove up to his parents' home, and as he was getting out of the car he saw his father come and sit down by the window. As he recalls, "I went into the house and saw several people sitting in the living room. I didn't recognize any of them. My father said 'Hello' to me and motioned me into my mother's bedroom. I went in where she lay dead. That was the end of my dream.

"Ten years later I was notified one night that my mother had died very suddenly. I got into the car which I now owned and drove to my parents' home and it was night and snow was on the ground. As I was getting out of the car I saw my father come and sit by the window. I went into the house and several people were sitting in the living room, relatives and friends whom I recognized. My father said 'Hello' and motioned me into my mother's bedroom, where she lay dead."


Ten years is an unusually long-term prediction. WDB accounts fit J.W. Dunne's model--most predictive dreams are quite short-term. I wanted to reassure readers with apparent long-term predictive dreams that they're not alone.
