Even though dreams generally symbolize our
psychological state some dreams can also have access to information
above and beyond the physical senses. There are prophetic or
precognitive dreams of the unchangeable and changeable kind. The
first kind foretells the future while not giving enough details for
any one to change the predetermined outcome. Whatever happened,
happened because it was already in the universal plan. Prophetic
dreams of the changeable kind allow you to change the future and may
sometimes warn you of an impending danger.
In ancient times there existed "dream temples"
where people slept and "priests" tried to help them get information
in their dreams using various hypnotic techniques. It was also
believed that dreams passed through two types of gates to meet the
dreamer: a gate made of ivory and another made of horns. If a dream
passed through the first gate it was believed to be a warning sign.
If it passed through the second gate it was a prophetic dream
revealing a future event that could not be changed.
The possibility to know about future events not only causes the
disbelief of skeptics but also often scares people who have such
dreams. However such dreams can be used to peoplesí benefit and to
the benefit of the people around them.
