A dream based on the future is quite complex. It reflects the dreamer's hopes and expectations, as well as her fears and doubts. The experience can be either positive or negative. If the dream is pleasant it signals the dreamer's agreeability for the direction of her future. If it is uncomfortable it indicates fear and guilt for the way the dreamer is carrying out her life in the present. Some dreams come to us in the form of prophecies and it seems that they reveal future events to us. Other times, we have the impression that we had already dreamed of an actual event. However, it is hard to tell whether we dreamed of that particular event for sure. It is advisable not to take these dreams as premonitions because, usually, the unconscious significantly distorts the information.
