Y2K Dreams, Nightmares, Visions & Revelations: What Have YOU Experienced?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
This Saturday at work I reflected upon the strange fragments of a dream which I had last night. Somehow I was not able to maneuver an extension ladder against my house, and a leg of my cast iron wood stove broke when I moved it. Of course, none of this happened in reality. My interpretation of this dream is that I am NOT prepared for the coming Depression.
To all of you Christians, Jews, Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists, Animists, Pagans, Witches, and others of different faiths: What have YOU experienced via dreams, nightmares, visions, revelations and weird happenstance?
Feel free to recount your experiences. The forum is open...

I don't know which was worse, riding shotgun on some delivery vehicle and having to shoot someone, or being forced to try and fly some B-52- like aircraft on some Y2K mission. In a seat behind the right seat pilot, no less! (Maybe I rode the backseat in a Phantom, but it was the second best seat in the house, not Seat B in Row 2.)

I know I'm having weird dreams relating to y2k stress because I remember them upon waking but immediately forget, as on purpose. System overload!

Flame away all you want but more than fifteen years ago I had a dream that the city of Memphis was destroyed by an atomic bomb. Maybe it's just a wild imagination but when was the last time you had a dream that stuck with you in vivd detail for more than an hour much less a decade and a half. No bullshit, and no troll nonesense. I have family in Memphis and not a one ever took me serious when I talked about it. Precognition? Who knows, stranger things have happened. I couldn't give you a date or anything but I know that when I had the dream I had never set foot in Tennessee. It was the first time I visited Memphis when I realized that it was the city I saw.
Oh well, flame away, makes no difference in any event. No amount of criticsm is going to change the future, whatever it may hold. But you asked, and I'm telling. So there you have it, no lies. I don't care if you think I'm crazy I've heard that story before. But I know the truth and from what I saw it doesn't look good. Studies have shown that Albert Einstein was gifted with a mathematical brain, would it be so hard to believe other are gifted with ESP?
Sounds like fiction right?
Time will tell

Prior to re-locating to NW Arkansas from the Washington, D.C. area, I did indeed have dreams that were definitely Y2K worry driven. Now that I'm here living on my survival property, working every day preparing, I sleep great. I can really appreciate the phrase, being "at peace".

nightmares ... OT, but on Breaking News ... Stephen King the horror author was seriously injured when he struck by a van while walking today ... he is in serious condition in hospital ...
We always thought if the big horror/scifi/history/best-seller writers would have written a Y2K book, maybe the weeples would have noticed, who knows?
plenty of vision-type stuff here

I think that I may have had a vision or premonition of the future when I was about 9 or 10 years old. I was at the mall with my parents and suddenly I looked around and the place was deserted except for us. Then a voice told me that someday all this will be gone and you will live to see it. I remembered the incident for a long time but eventually it faded from my memory. However, preparing for Y2K has brought it to the surface again. I think that subconsciously it may have played a part in my "getting it" so quickly. I've always been a highly intuitive and aware person, and I've learned to listen to my inner voice. It's got a great track record. And right now it's telling me to prepare like there's no tomorrow.

I was driving South on I-75 through Atlanta 6 months ago, when I heard the sound of a single pair of footsteps walking on the pavement. Tennis shoes, to be exact. They were mine. I was the only person around. No birds sang. No Breeze. All I could see was the empty highway and the unmowed grass at the sides.
At first I thought it was a daydream. So I told myself to snap out of it, concentrate on the traffic, get to work safely, etc... But the sound of my own footsteps kept intruding. The effort to focus on my driving caused me to perspire, the hair on the back of my neck stood up. This went on for about 15 minutes. I had to pull over at the next exit because of nausea.
I've never had "visions" of any kind, never had any mental instability, was happily employed at the time. So go figure. Was it a premonition? Maybe. Maybe just a daydream and something wrong I ate for breakfast.
It was a strong feeling. I didn't sleep well for weeks afterward. Eventually I quit my programming job, sold my house, headed back to the country. I am sleeping well now. Time passes. The future will unfold in its own sweet time.

Hi Randolph! Thought you might enjoy these from an older thread:
Had any Y2K dreams?
-- Gayla Dunbar (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 19, 1999.
Yeah....a nightmare a while back in which I have my 3 yr. old son in my arms at some friend's 2 story house and somehow times have changed and gang bangers are cruisin' and walking the streets with occasional bursts of gunfire going back and forth. (This crap isn't that far away actually - 45 minutes to Sacramento). Anyhow, I remember shots being fired at the house, coming up through the floor and I am trying to find a safe spot for my son and I, try the bathtub but won't work for some reason. End up leaving the house and those outside are hooting and hollering and having a gay old time and some chick starts lobbing some sort of small concussion bomb/explosive near me...I keep turning my back and running but somehow remember this incredible concussion on my back and the scared and stunned look on my baby's face. I finally get away and end up in some boggy, willow stand with stagnant and fresh water pools where I feel safer. Find some dead body in a fresh pool, drag it out and try to get drinking water from a different spot. Yeah... it sucked big time.
Maybe I dream this way because we used to tease my elderly grandmother who used to live in her house of 40 years in a not-so- great neighborhood in Long Beach Calif. When the neighborhood started going down hill (I remember watching the first "homeless" person there setting up a cardboard box house next to a burned out house) she had a heavy steel plate mounted as a headboard because that wall faced the street. She slept with some sort of loaded semi- auto (?) rifle (AK?) next to the bed. We thought this was paranoid. My cousin lived with her alot and got into some gang trouble - killed a Samoan gang member in self defense and their revenge was to firebomb my grandmother's home. She only survived because of a heroic firefighter who saved her in the nick of time. Reality.
As a mom those seem to be the most prevalent types of (anxious) dreams I have - always involving trying to protect my little boy. Sure I have GOOD dreams too but these come around every so often.
-- Kristi (email@example.com), June 20, 1999.
Dreams of fire, explosions, nuclear clouds, finding a place that had escaped... they don't happen often, but I've had the recurring theme in my dreams (nightmares?) as long as I can remember... and that covers about 40+ years ...
Have I had dreams that came true, ie., real premonitions? Yes. Have I had bad dreams, or good dreams, that never happened. Yes.
Do I know how to tell the difference between the premonition and simply flights of fancy? No.
We as a species, will survive... whether I will be one of the lucky (or unlucky) ones I have no idea. Something is coming, or something has just passed... the last few weeks I think we came closer to nuclear war than we ever have, and if I had been on the ground in Kosovo in the last few months, I would have believed that I was at the heart of Armegadon...
That's what y2k has become, a dream, a nightmare, something we can't control, something we struggle to wake up from...
-- Carl (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 20, 1999.
When I was young and a teenager I dreamed "true". I would dream about the future and it would come true. I always knew about the important things that were going to happen in may family before they happened. I knew about the deaths of my grandparents. It seemed that I was prepared so things did not hit me as hard as they might have (although knowing about them in advance produces a great deal of sadness). Then in the early 70s I went through a period when for a period of a couple of months, I dreamed the next day - mostly insignificant things but I developed a great confidence in my dreams. Then I began dreaming the next week for a while, then the next month and then the farther off future. Since this was more than 25 years ago I have had plenty of time to watch the unfoldment of that which I saw in my dreams. During the latter period, I had many dreams about these times, the times around the turn of the millenium. Because of my dreams, I did my masters thesis on the psychic content of dreams and in particular mass dreams - with a focus on the dreams of the changes at the millenium. I also covered the experiences of people who had had near death experiences and what they perceived while in that state as it related to these coming times. My dreams about the coming times were of great difficulties - of financial problems for the world, of wars that impacted into the United States - including nuclear explosions, of a wall of water hundreds, perhaps even thousands of feet high that rolls across the shore and inundates everything in its path. In the dreams, eventually this wall of water does recede. My dreams of that time also included something being dropped from the air that I called spores and from which we had to hide. All in all, it was very scary stuff. But - the dreams were also plain that we would survive. They were also plain that civilization would not cease to exist, but it would certainly change. It has always been interesting to me, in light of those dreams, how with everything that I had dreamed about happening - how could we survive? But I know that we will. In my masters thesis, I also explored the myths and legends of the various indigenous peoples of the earth. It was pretty amazing that so many cultures point to these times as a time of great cleansing - of catastrophic changes. Most of those people who had Near Death Experiences are almost universal in reporting warnings relative to these coming times (the end of the millenium and the beginning of the new millenium). It has been interesting living with my dreams and being psychic. When I was young I found no problems at all with the fact that I knew things before they were going to happen. I found no conflict about this with my religion nor with my studies of science and math. It was all 'of a piece' to me. I got a degree in math. Later when I was working on a masters degree in psychology, I began to encounter the concept that somehow my dreams and psychic ability were not scientific. This is so amusing, really, because they have worked for me all of my life. I used to solve my math problems (topology) by dreaming on them - I would awake from the dream with the answer. To me a persons dreams can guide them through what might be the most difficult times that mankind has ever known.

I have this recurring nightmare where Bill Clinton is President, surrounded by various and nefarious henchmen and unmen, middle and high school kids turn berserker and randomly shoot people, we find ourselves taxslaves of an unstoppable Imperialistic juggernaut that is becoming more totalitarian with every passing week, in a land where God and the Constitution are mocked, and to make things worse, it's June, 1999 and we seem to be rushing toward a technological rubicon. This dreams, in all its particulars, occurs every morning upon waking.

Did you ever dream of an asteroid plunging into an ocean, causing those high walls of water?
-- Randolph (email@example.com), June 20, 1999.
I did not dream of an asteroid, although I know many others who have. The dreams that I have had relative to the - what I called in my dream 1000 foot high - wave, were of two different kinds. In the one, I am in what appears to be the Pacific Northwest - I decided this only because that is the nature of the vegetation and the trees. In the dream, I am expecting the water, so I keep looking over my shoulder for it and then I see it - it is towering - huge. In my dreams relative to Dallas, Texas, the water comes up to about the middle of Dallas after having poured over everything south of there - there is great consternation about whether it will stop before it covers Dallas - but it does not cover it completely. Relative to Atlanta, Georgia, the dreams are similar - in that the water covers most of Atlanta - but relative to the Atlanta dreams - I was not sure that any of it was not covered. I live in Marietta, just north of Atlanta. I wish I could answer you about the cause of the wave, but it wasn't revealed in my dreams.

I've had recurring dreams about being in a nuclear attack. Outside and/or driving my car, and lo and behold, "two suns in the sunset." "Could be the human race is run," I mumble.
Instantly recognizing what it is I shrink from the light and cover my eyes and ears. But the light is so bright I can literally see through my hands and eyelids. There is a scalding sensation on my limbs as if suddenly someone dunked me in a pool of boiling water. Then, 8 seconds later I hear a loud "boom," so loud it seems to ring. I'm knocked from whereever I am and tumbled several dozen feet. Coming to, I see that the sky is nearly black with towering mushroom clouds. I'm stuck with broken glass and splinters like a pin cushion. Arms and legs are bright red from burns and beginning form large, welt-like blisters. Still I get up anyway and walk away, toward a town with no one left alive...
Some variation of that dream repeats itself every so often. I've known that dream for about 15 years.
Other than that, a sense of grave foreboding surrounds my thoughts on the near future. I've gotten into the eccentric habit of "sending messages" to myself in the past in the hopes that I will be better able to deal with critical moments in the present. That is, if this odd habit remains intact a few years from now, I ought to be getting messages from my future at this very instant. The sense of what I've sending to myself from the post-00 future don't seem to be very pleasant, but who am I to say? This is probably just craziness. I recognize that it has no basis in the rational mind, where time is supposed to be a neat sequence from past to present to future. But such possibilities of time's flexibility and loopiness are fun to imagine...
Again, my sense is that the year 2000 will be far crazier and much more hazardous than I would normally infer from surveying the current events and mainstream news. Hope I'm wrong.

For about 2 yrs. before I became aware of Y2K, when I would sit and chant with a CD of my meditation master I would sometimes suddenly find myself thinking of a time to come when there would be no electricity, so I would not be able to hear that chant or that beloved voice. Also, I would occasionally become anxious, seeing our home as it would be with no power - just a cold, dark box. I recently read an article by a psychotherapist who would like people who have premonitions or experiences with the spiritual world to get in touch. I think he is going to write a book. He is Philip Chard. His website: www.healingnature.com His e-mail: email@example.com Blessings, all. Shivani Arjuna

That Y2K dream link provided some interesting dreams.
I anticipate people experiencing an increase in dreams and visions as world events become deadlier. Then WTSHTF, millions more will suffer nightmares caused by hardships.
I forgot to include mention of atheists in the original post. I know they lurk and smirk here.

June 20, 1999 Re: The subject of dreams and visions relative to Y2K.
You've read and heard what all the experts have had to say about Y2K now let's see what God has to say about this controversial subject, if you can receive it. God, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Jesus, our precious saviour, has revealed the following that I might prophecy to my brothers and sisters in Christ and be warned. That the unbeliever also might be warned as well.
Let me say first that I have had many, many dozens of prophetic dreams that have come to pass. Some near term about events which would happen within the following day or two. Some out weeks, some about events to take place months or 2, 3 or 4 years out and some which haven't occurred yet. Many about personal to me situations that would come to pass, many about the nation and Clinton.
God has shown to me, in dreams and visions, different pictures of Y2K and beyond.
THE STATELY MANSION AND CLINTONS' BRIDGE In one dream I am shown a once stately, colonial mansion on a hill. But it is in ruins. (A picture of America.) I walk up to the mansion in ruins and go to a broken down inner wall and I asked the angel who is standing near me if we can repair this wall. The angel tells me "no". I walk over to another wall which is also broken and as I point to it I turn to the same angel and I ask the same question - "Can we rebuild this wall?". The angel shakes his head and says "no". Then I look down the hill just below the mansion and notice that the crop is unattended, out of cultivation and is also in ruins. There is a sense of severe poverty. (God here is showing us that this is America to be and now He is going to show us how we got to that point. The dream continues ...)
...Then suddenly I am standing out in a field, a country landscape and here comes a passenger train filled with people. I look into the windows of the train as it passes by and notice that the passengers are casually reading the newspaper, eating and drinking and rather enjoying the landscape as it passes before them.
...Then suddenly again the scene changes and I am standing on the edge of a rather steep precipice and here comes the train which I observed earlier. It is coming down the track and as it passes by me the train goes right over the cliff because the bridge is out! (Remember when Bill Clinton told us just before the '96 elections that he was the man to lead this nation over that bridge to the next millineum? God had already warned me about that bridge in this dream in 1994) (The dream continues)
...I watch in horror and shock as the train goes past me over the cliff. The people on the train who in the previous scene were nonchalantly and casually reading the newspaper (the mainstream narcotic which passes for news), enjoying the landscape and completely unconcerned, eating ice cream, sipping coffee in a state of complacency, were now scrambling in a terrorized state, frantic to get out of the windows of the train before it goes over the cliff but it is too late. The windows don't open as they claw desperately at them as they surely realize but only too late that Clintons' bridge is a lie. God has removed it. (This also answers the question of whether Y2K will be a "speed bump" or a "train wreck" to use Congressman Bennet's characterization.)
In the above dream, I believe God gave me a future picture of America and a picture of Y2K which is the begining point of many other problems. I believe that Y2K will be the tripwire for many other ills for Gods' Judgement on America. In 1994 God showed to me that China will sail up to the coast of California and launch missiles. In 1996, the Lord of Creation, Jesus Christ, appeared to me in a dream as He appeared to Joshua, with sword drawn and pointed upward, and admonished me to: "Give (Him) the glory" and several months later received a dream of nuclear war in America.
In other dreams God has shown to me a mighty black storm coming in the year 2000 and in other dreams (in 1992 and '93) about a sudden and great flood. I can't say that these "flood" dreams are of a literal "flood" or a analogous picture of overtaking events that will come like a flood.
In any event, I believe that we should be preparing for Y2K and for nuclear war. At least begin storing barrels filled with water, food, a way to prepare food and alternate forms of home heating. If you think Y2K is going to be a bump in the road, think again. Remember God's last big judgement on America (the Great Depression) lasted for 10 years. There were dust storms for 10 years because God stopped the rain. People had to shovel the dust out of their homes every day by the bucketfull. In January of 1997 when I began reading about Y2K on the internet I immediately realized that this is what God had been warning me about and that it was time to begin making preps and trying to warn people. But I soon realized as have most of you reading this (I think), that most people just don't get it and that they look at you funny when you talk about Y2K. They will buy insurance for every contingency in their God forsaken life and beg the government to cover their behinds for every other contingency but you and I are stupid if we take out some basic food insurance that we can eat or give to the poor if nothing happens. OK. But remember, that God says that most people are going to be on that train and that they are going to be complacent and unconcerned up until the come up to Clinton's Bridge. You and I are just fearmongers and doom and gloomers. Yes, I guess they're right.
If you are a Christian reading this and your response to Y2K is "I'll just let the Lord take care of me", "I'll just trust in the Lord". I doubt if these people "trust" in the lord as much as they think they they do. How many such Christians told their children that "you don't need to go to school, you don't need to learn how to read, write, multiply and divide because when you grow up you will "trust in the lord"? So children, just sit back and trust. No! Noone says that to their children. We tell our children to PREPARE! And so we prepare for different contingencies all through life. Millions of Americans will survive Y2K and nuclear war but your odds will be greatly decreased if you are not prepared.
By the way, I don't look for the rapture of the saints until after the AntiChrist is on the world stage (revealed) and his plan for eliminating Christians and Jews well underway. How do I know this? I know this because of Paul in 2Thess. 2:1-3 and numerous other verses in Daniel, Matthew and Revelation to name a few. Christians would want to make it to this time. To lay down your life as a testimony to Jesus and His gospel gives glory to the Lord.
"When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained ...Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed" Rev. 6:9-11
"They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of thir testimony, they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death" Rev. 12:11
Praise His Holy Name For He has done great things.

I can believe that God might punish the world for its sins. But what's obvious from history is that, when calamities occur, the wrong people usually suffer, while those who've sinned the most & benefited the most materially from their sins not only survive but continue to get richer & richer.
Along those lines: Does anyone believe for a second that Clinton will be made to pay for his crimes in this lifetime? Neither do I.

All you guys with your paranoid 'God is going to get us' depressive personalities........read your Bibles......
God's wrath was COMPLETELY finished at the cross.....it's over kiddies!!
Your totally messed up understanding of scripture will lead you to the madhouse........get out of it while you still have a mind that functions......
-- Craig (firstname.lastname@example.org), June 21, 1999.
You wrote: "God's wrath was COMPLETELY finished at the cross...." WHERE exactly in scripture do you get THAT nonsense???
You obviously don't worship the God as revealed in the Bible.
Does scripture not state that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever"? Heb 13:8
And not Jesus alone but the Father also? Go and read John 1:1-3 and tell us that Jesus is not the same God of the Old Testament.
Also your chronology is way off...."God's wrath was finished at the cross...." perhaps you've never read the Revelation to John? Those things written there have not happened yet.
I'll also assume you subscribe to the "Once Saved always Saved" doctrine. Hogwash at best. Go and reread your Bible and ask God for understanding.
You're beliefs are rooted in false interpretations as it relates to Scripture.

Ever read any books by Mary Summer Rain?
My mother has had premonitions throughout her life. We don't practice any particular religion but we do strongly believe in God. (Prodestant?) Though I've never really believed in psychics, I can trust my mother when she tells me something she had a vision of really disturbed her. Some of her visions are of natural disasters or of the day (or night) when the existance of "other beings" is revealed to humans on earth. She had a strong vision once of many people in Mexico standing on a hilltop, with their arms open, looking to the sky, and welcoming these new beings. The second coming of Jesus Christ is also a big premonition of hers.
I have had recent dreams about living in a world without electricity and all the conveniences we have today. I never felt afraid in the dreams because I always had a strong belief in God. He was with me through all the hard times. There was a sense of relief because I, and all the other women in my dream didn't have to look as beautiful anymore. We didn't wear make-up and the struggle for material items just wasn't a factor anymore. In my dream it seemed like we were just camping.
Has anyone had the same dream more than once? I have and I find that very strange! That's got to mean something. I had a dream once recently of a dream I had as a child. That was YEARS ago! I used to dream that I was flying and it felt so amazing! Also, I've had dreams where I actually realized in my dream that I was dreaming and therefore, could control events I was dreaming about! You wana talk about a sense of POWER - that was it!
I take dreams seriously and despite the experts who theorize about them, no one really knows what they are and what they mean. Could it be true that our minds/souls are actually going to those places we dream about? Traveling through time and into the past/future? Intriguing!
