Further to a discussion in another dream thread, a few participants agreed it would be worthwhile starting a thread for people to share dreams which may contain elements of prediction or precognition.

If subsequent news reports appear to corroborate details from the dream, we would then have documented evidence that, just possibly, something Fortean may have occurred!

So please, share any particularly vivid, detailed or curiously-prophetic feeling dreams with us here, together with any follow-up news stories where there appears to be synchronicity, and let's see what happens!

If I may be permitted, I'll get things going by reprising a couple of mine...

I already posted this several months ago and, so far it hasn't come true, but who knows?

I sometimes fall asleep listening to the radio and this means that news, chat and music will be fed into my sleeping brain. One morning I woke up with the distinct impression I had heard a news report during the night about an Italian astronaut on the International Space Station having run amok, causing significant damage and having to be restrained. Having a great interest in all things to do with space and being sure that it had happened, I switched on the TV in the anticipation of getting the full details over breakfast. No such story was reported. I scanned the online news servers, but again nothing. I don't even know if there are any Italian astronauts up there. Will keep an eye on this one.

Incredibly vivid dream two nights' ago, much of which I can still recall in great detail. I was on the 2nd storey of a multi-floor car-park, somewhere hot. I got the feeling it was continental Europe. The car-park was in the vicinity of some archaeological ruins - I can recall remnants of an old city wall and terracotta coloured roof tiles. Suddenly, there was a roaring noise. Some people almost ran into me and I yelled at them "Earthquake! Get out of here. Get into the street."
People were running down the exit ramp, which suddenly slewed and then collapsed to the right. I saw people in front of me get crushed. Don't know if the dream me got out, because I woke up at that point, with my heart hammering.

I'm obviously aware there was a significant earthquake in Italy only a few weeks ago, but this dream didn't seem to resonate with that. The fact that I spoke English in the dream suggests it could have been somewhere with a large ex-pat community.

So, if you see a news report of a major earthquake, with a collapsed multi-storey car-park near some historic site, with some ex-pat British casualties, then remember you read it here first!

When I was a teenager, I had a curiously vivid dream, which was unusual. Unusual because I very rarely remember any dreams.
In the dream, it was like a TV news feature, showing an old prophet being walled up alive inside a chamber in a desert location (like the Valley of the Kings). The purpose of this would be for him to come forth with a prophecy after communing with 'the spirits'.
The next sequence in the news showed the emaciated old man being liberated from the chamber days later and shakily telling the world of his revelations.
As he is telling the world, a gigantic nuclear blast goes off in the distance behind him.

That's it.

A year or so ago I dreamed that some bloke was driving me slowly across a field in a big American car, heading for a gap in the hedge.

A young woman was walking in front of us carrying a bucket, walking backwards and scattering something from it, like seeds or animal feed.

She backed towards the car I was in and the driver didn't stop or sound the horn; he carried on so that she stumbled against the front of the car. I turned to him, aghast that he'd do such a thing.

Next day, a poster on another message board described how her daughter had nearly been run over at work. She was walking backwards on a petrol station forecourt doing some job when a car had come up behind her, slowly and quietly, and knocked her off her feet.

As the other poster is American and I'm British, the dream and actual incident would have happened around the same time. Weird, eh.

I've had several prophetic / premonition dreams during my life and they seem to feel 'different' to usual crazy dreams and I am sometimes haunted by them for days or weeks after. They usually involve an event that is impacting on the consciousness of many people, nationally or internationally. I also get the sense of being an observer, often distraught but being unable to intervene.

I can't say if it's simply coincidence but I did have one in May 2001 that involved an aircraft hitting a skyscraper building and I could sense/see people falling down and through inside. I was aghast in my dream and also felt it was very wrong that so many other people were watching this, although I didn't know how they were also witnessing what I was seeing.

The next day, in my lunch hour at work I broke down in tears with a colleague as this dream was haunting me. As it was working in the charity/NGO sector in the area of mental health they were sympathetic and kind. It took about 2 weeks before I stopped feeling so upset.

Part of me also attempts to rationalise it as there are at least 7 billion dreamers every day so sometimes 1 in 7,000,000,000 dreams is likely to be related to possible events about to happen.

Forgot to add my latest resonant dream!

An amusement/theme park with all the biggest fear rides and rollercoasters. There is a ride that is like a vertical elevator tower with people sitting in seats on the outside. Someone yells in Arabic (don't ask me how I knew) and literally starts throwing explosives around amongst all the people. Nasty.

I posted this on the other thread, but I'll re-post it here:

For fun, I'd like to share two supposedly prophetic dreams two other friends/co-workers have shared with me. We'll see if they turn out to be true.

The Algebra teacher's son had a dream about President Trump (it's scary enough already) giving a speech complaining that he couldn't accomplish any of his promises, because congress wouldn't let him (if we are unfortunate enough to have a President Trump, let's hope this part is at least).

The long term sub has told us that he had a dream about him and group of men looking down the mesa, observing military men training in formation. For what it's worth, he believes the dream is already beginning to come true, because while he didn't recognize any of the men with him at the time, he says he recognized me as one when we met.

About a year ago I had a vivid dream that a petrol station near where I then lived was on fire. I had a cinematic-style dual perspective whereby I saw the roaring fire as if from across the street and then from the skyline as a fireball rose into the night's sky.

It made such an impression on me that I described it to wife and friends the following day and we still joke when we drive past that it's still there.

If this comes to pass, I think I will be a little frightened, but now it's recorded here as well as witnessed by my family.

Great stuff guys! Keep 'em coming and, please no retrospective editing of your accounts to try to knock them into shape to fit subsequent events. Let's keep this little experiment as scientific as possible and see if one of us forumists is a budding Nostradamus.

If most of these dreams are correct, the world's gonna explode.
Yeah. Watch out for a wizened old man being walled up or buried alive.

I had a nap today and dreamed that my Mum had given me two 'things' in silver foil, about the size of the new five pound note and just as thin. I opened one sitting on a park bench in some city and it was an honest to god touch screen computer that came with a little beige coloured pen .. the thing was so thin you could fold it in half like thin plastic and still not damage it ..

I was so impressed with it in my dream that I showed it to some old woman sitting next to me after my screen display suddenly appeared in real time on a large digital billboard near to us. I remember joking (inappropriately) with her "It's a good job I wasn't looking at porn!" and she laughed ...

With any luck this was a premonition dream, disposable touch screens P.C.'s that I felt cost only a pound each .. you'd love one ..

Oh, that would be nice if it became available. Foldable screens are a real thing...just not publicly available yet.

Had one of those disturbing ones last night that sticks with you long after. A small / localised explosion (looked like a small mushroom type cloud - possibly nuclear or dirty bomb?) in a town / city - location name began with San (as in San Bernadino etc), felt like it could be California but not clear. Definitely sunny and close to the ocean.

I also dreamt of being told that reality is false (hollow was a word that came up a lot) and that there's just empty space between everything. The example given was you can travel anywhere you can think of instantly as all journeys only take one second, whether you're going to Australia or Mars.

For full disclosure, I did eat a quantity of cheese before going to bed last night. And some Liquorice Allsorts...

Big earthquake in central Italy. Collapsing buildings could seem like explosions. Close to the Adriatic...

Two strong earthquakes have hit central Italy.

The second link has a photo of a church of San Sebastiano surrounded by wrecked houses.

"In Campo, near Norcia in the Umbria region, the late 15th century San Salvatore church collapsed. It had been weakened by the earthquake in August."

Interesting... However as this happened at 17.10pm GMT yesterday I wonder if I overheard the name on the radio and it's somehow worked it's way into my dream. AFAIK I didn't see any news last night or this morning as I was out at a meeting for 7am.

From the first Beeb link:
A 5.5-magnitude quake struck at 19:10 local time (17:10 GMT) near Visso in Macerata province, officials said.
It was followed two hours later by a 6.1 magnitude tremor in the same area.

So as you say, you may have heard a radio report...

I've had several dreams this year set in a post apocalyptic wasteland. I think it's just because I enjoy that subgenre of sci-fi.

In one, a 9 ft tall robot Robin Williams drove a transit van carrying messages between isolated settlements of survivors. Far from appreciating his efforts, everyone just yelled abuse at him.

Then someone tried to steal my precious Mattessons sausage and I punched them in the face.

Slightly spooky that a tanker called San Bernadino is anchored in Mounts Bay, where she has been for several days! :p

Yes. It did set me thinking about my dream. Will see if any photos from the new earthquake are suggestive of elements I dreamt.

Well, it seems that Italy is shaking like a Polaroid at this moment.
Would the sheer frequency of an event trigger a peak on the senses of sensitive people?

Woke up this morning with fragments of a disturbing dream still lingering.

A football match in a huge but older-style stadium. I had the feeling one of the teams was England, with the other team wearing dark shirts - grey or dark blue.
Some crowd trouble started and riot police were called, initially just to contain the violent crowd. The match continues for a while, but then a fire starts somewhere high in the stand, amongst the fighting hooligans, caused by a firework or flare. Lots of people are trapped or trampled when trying to escape.
I woke up at this point.
Hope it was just a meaningless if particularly vivid dream and not a premonition of what might happen at the World Cup in Russia.

Well I sincerely hope that this turns out to be a dud too. The Russians have already suffered one recent fire based tragedy - a blaze at a shopping mall in Kemorovo just last month - and don't need any more of that. Moreover if, as your dream seems to imply, the incident were to be the result of deliberate arson then the strain on already strained relations between Russia and -presumably the West in some shape or form -would become yet more hopeless.

There are times when you don't want Fortean phenomena to be confirmed!

All the indications at this end (Moscow) are that the matches are going to be peaceful and sporting events - and the Russian sportsd fans and tourist industry are waiting with open arms.(As a complete non-sport/ non-football fan I don't know what i'm going to do with myself!- but that's by the by).

I very rarely remember my dreams, but I was awoken by my wife stirring at about 0500 today with the following in my mind:

I was the invisible observer of a scene. A railway track with an oncoming train on it stretched off into the distance. Human figures were lying on the tracks, some lengthwise, some at right angles to the tracks. I seem to remember that they were naked or lightly clothed. I believe that there were woods on the far side of the tracks.

In the foreground, a burly white police officer was trying to persuade a civilian to help him to rescue the people from the onrushing train. His uniform, and the look of the train, suggested the USA to me.

The train killed or maimed two or three people before the officer could enlist the man's help. They then tried to drag one potential victim from the track, but the loco struck the supine man before they could accomplish the rescue. My last view was of the engine dragging the three people down the track away from me, leaving a wide streak of blood behind it.

I'm not interested in trains, and I don't recall any specific recent stimulus that might have put such a scene into my head.
