Hello.

  1. The monument is dreaming. I clearly see the name, surname, beginning and end, I see the appearance and the fact that he (the monument) communicates with his mother-in-law. In the morning I tell my husband the dream. He says that his mother has such a friend, the acquaintance died a year ago. I saw her once, about 10 years ago. After 2 hours his mother calls and says that the daughter of this woman called, her father died that night when I had a dream and she asked for help from my mother-in-law. How?

  2. I dream that a fox is chasing me. I told about it in the morning, went for a walk, a fox ran next to the car, in our forest, where foxes were never seen .. (this, of course, may be a coincidence, but I'm very worried)

Here it is important to clarify when real events occur - before or after the dream itself.

First of all, it should be said that today there is no clear understanding of why we need sleep at all. Suffice it to say that modern science considers the phenomenon of sleep not as ordinary rest, but as a special state of the brain, reflected in specific behavior (posture, state of consciousness, and so on); in addition, REM sleep and NREM sleep are considered as fundamentally different states of consciousness (along with wakefulness).

To simplify, we can consider dreams as the work of the brain to organize and structure data. During the REM sleep phase, our brain processes the information received during the day, "puts it on the shelves", trains neural connections for the purpose of optimization, and so on.

If the event happened before sleep, then everything is more or less clear here: as a result of what happened (especially if the event caused violent emotions), some information (visual, auditory, tactile, and so on) entered the brain, you comprehended this information, then during sleep the brain tries to organize and interpret it in its own way, simultaneously "showing pictures ".

But what about the events that happened after the dream (the so-called" prophetic dreams ")? Most likely, in this case, the event did not happen absolutely by chance, it was preceded by some "hints" that you might not even notice. Well, for example: you dreamed that you were in a car accident (sorry for the sad example), and the next day you really got into an accident and damaged your bumper. Prophetic dream? Hardly. Most likely, you have not had enough sleep lately, your attention has been reduced, perhaps there has been an increase in anxiety about this. During sleep, your brain built a logical connection "lack of sleep -> reduced reaction speed -> car accident" and drew a picture for you. So you do not need to be afraid of "prophetic dreams" or interpret them as something supernatural, rather, you need to listen to your brain and draw the right conclusions in time.
