Dreams come in various types.
Normally people dream about things that have a direct connection to some aspect of their lives. Most common people dream about their families, their jobs, their hobbies and their friends. People dream about the things that are on their minds. The more you think about something the more likely you will dream about it.
Normal people dream about normal things as I have listed them above. There are exceptions to every rule and the first exception is that some people dream about things that are foreign to them.
Being one of those exceptions I dream about things that are so far distant to me there's no logical or scientific method to explain it. Why would I dream about a space shuttle disaster when I don't work at NASA and live miles from there. I don't even know anyone who does work at NASA. University experts with Ph.D.'s claim that it is impossible for a person to dream about an event they do not have direct contact with. Yet I have dreams about things I have no connection to and so do quite a lot of other people.
When I ran the first Dream Link dream research echo message group on a computerized B.B.S. I began writing the first files and categorized the types of dreams that I was aware of at that time. One of the first files that I made available on my Rainbow - Paranet TAU BBS was captured by someone and posted on a website on the Internet literally without my knowledge of consent. That file is so old and out of date it's a shame it's still out there for the public to read. The nature of the Internet means anything that is posted anywhere on the Internet can be taken and used by anyone else for any purpose they might choose.
Dream types are as follows.
Normal symbolic dreams are as I have described at the top of this page. They deal with the things people most generally think about. They are the result of the mind and soul processing the things that reside within the dreamer's mind.
Normal literal dreams are just dreams that include literal things in the place of symbols.
Mid Level Symbolic
These are higher level symbolic dreams that speak of things just beyond the dreamer's knowledge. These may also include premonitions or predictive dreams that speak of events that are yet to happen.
Mid Level Literal
As you may guess these types include literal items showing things or people for who they are rather than showing them as a symbol.
High Level Symbolic
As you can see each dream type in this category move upward in levels and reach out further than the same type of lower levels. A high level symbolic dream can extend into areas that include premonitions on a more powerful level. They can include prophetic messages that speak of events from several days into the future to many years into the future.
High level Literal
Any time a dream uses literals instead of symbols we refer to it as a literal dream. In this type I could use a number of my previous prophetic dreams as examples. I saw the space shuttle in my dream and I understood that it was in danger. In one of those I was watching a TV set on a beach and in the TV set I saw the Columbia space shuttle explode. These are "literals" not "symbolic."
Anyone might have a combination of any of the dream or dream like experiences listed on this page.
From here we move into Night Visions and viewpoint dreams.
Night Visions are of course very high level informative psychic messages to the dreamer. When God spoke to His prophets sometimes He used what we refer to as "waking visions." A waking vision is a very powerful image that someone can experience while they are wide awake. They are generally very rare but they can be a powerful and disturbing experience. They nearly always carry a powerful message for the one who experiences them. John had powerful visions when he saw the things that were described in the book of Revelation.
A night vision is very similar but much safer than a full blown waking vision. They also carry very important messages to the dreamer, some may just as important as the waking visions.
Night Visions can include symbols and literal language as well as combinations of the two.
When I first placed a type on a viewpoint dream many years ago I realized it was as if I were seeing things from someone else's perspective. Like seeing through someone else's eyes. I saw a man standing beside a country road. I could see his truck and could see him cussing and kicking and finally falling into the ditch. I saw all this like I was someone who was there at the time watching this man and his situation. Later I told the dream to someone who knew this man and he told me I had seen exactly what had happened to the man who I had seen in the dream. Some of those people with the Ph.D.'s claim it's not possible, but I'm here to testify that it happened, not once but many many times.
The man who discovered remote viewing first discovered it in dream state. Therefore we can say that my viewpoint dreams can also be considered remote viewing dreams.
I've seen things in remote viewing night visions that I'm certain there are people who wouldn't like me to tell what I saw. Some of these, perhaps most of them are going to be nearly impossible to verify because the subjects I've seen in some cases are very personal to some people and highly classified in other cases. There are things the government is involved with and does not want us to know about.
In the examples section of this site I will give examples of each type of dream or dream like experience mentioned on this page.
Accurate prophetic dreams can come as viewpoint and or remote viewing perspectives.
