Dreams that take place in the future can be a portent that an old friend will contact you with some news. They also signify your return to reality after being carried away by illusions or dreamlike states and reflect fresh facets of who you are. If you find that your imagination and intellect are slowing down right now, it is a sign that you are becoming more rooted in reality, which is a positive development. Freud hypothesized that if we were able to dream about the future, our nightmares would contain multiple scenarios in which we encountered challenges or roadblocks along the way. However, he believes that this is not always true in either case because some people experience freedom in a positive way rather than feeling that their dreaming abilities restrict them in some way.
Freud believed that certain of a person’s dreams could provide a glimpse into their possible future. If you have a dream in which you see an astrologer who predicts the future and tells you what will take place, you should prepare yourself for an embarrassing situation in your waking life in the near future. Dreams in which people predict that horrible things will happen might be viewed as disclosing embarrassing occurrences, as being suggestive of secrets from our pasts, or as referring to a component of our shadow or other selves that we are not comfortable admitting and integrating. Integration of this kind is highly crucial if one want to reach a higher level of conscious awareness of both oneself and the world in which we live.
