Are Psychic Dreams Real?

If you've ever had a true psychic dream, you're in the minority.

According to Letitia Sweitzer, MEd, ACC, an Atlanta-based life coach who co-authored a book on dreams that come true, only about 10 percent of people have had what she considers a compelling psychic-dream story. Dreaming that your grandmother is going to die and then having her die a few months later is not convincingly psychic she says, because lots of people dream about death and, inevitably, everyone does die.

Far more fascinating to Sweitzer is the experience of a woman who contacted Sweitzer's co-author upon learning the pair was writing a book about psychic dreams. "She dreamed of this object, and she did not know what it was. It looked like a little heart or other medical specimen in a glass jar full of water. That night she went to the home of a friend who was getting rid of some possessions. The friend handed this woman a jar with water in it. Inside was a dark, heart-like object. It was an avocado pit that looked like the object in her dream."

Did the dream signify anything important for this woman? Perhaps not, Sweitzer says, admitting that there is no science to back up the phenomenon of psychic dreaming. Still, she says, it's a good idea to examine your own dreams and figure out how to make the best use of the situation.

As Sweitzer says, "When the dreamer heeds a dream warning, talks about it, explores its possibilities, or takes positive action, he diminishes the negative impact of the predicted event. When a dreamer accepts a happy dream and acts with confidence, she optimizes its encouraging power."

Sweitzer mentions that in the course of writing her book, she finally had a psychic dream of her own. She dreamed that a magazine editor for whom she was freelancing at the time, a man not given to compliments or praise, took her hand and held it and told her how wonderfully written her latest article was. The next day, he called her into his office and told her how great her last piece was. He didn't take her hand, but at that moment another editor walked by, saw Letitia, and took her hand in both his hands and held it for a long time. "It gave me confidence," Sweitzer says. "I can say to myself, 'You're a wonderful writer.'"
