Dreams of the Future

Meeting Someone for the first time in a past dream.

On March 3rd, 2018 when I arrived at the Monroe Institute I met a person for the first time in my waking life that I only ever met first in a past dream that I had on February 13th, 2018, 18 days after I had the dream of this person. For me, this was such a significant precognitive dream because I traveled 4,427 kilometers across Canada into the US to go to a place called the Monroe Institute near Charlottesville VA. A place I’ve wanted to go to for 30 years. The odds of meeting someone you dreamed of without ever meeting first in waking life seems impossible.

Not only was this the person from the dream, I identified him as being middle eastern with tattoos. Sure enough, he is middle eastern and I recognized his tattoos on his arms from the dream. To further cement the connection to the dream, he mentioned a person named Tamara, however in my dream I recalled her name as Sumara. This inconsistency is derived at how difficult after waking up from a long dream to recall the finer details. Pulling a name from a dream especially one I never heard before is not an easy task. I have a hard time remembering dreams in my waking life let alone trying to recall one from a dream.

Another key element of the dream was a conversation we had as a group of us sat at a table which lead up to when I revealed the dream journal. In the conversation a person talked about Robert A. Monroe’s idea of the “projector” which is a concept of a projector projecting our reality from a single source. In my dream the projector was mentioned and was coming from a conscious singularity which I described in the dream as the one who dreams us all. A pivotal part of the conversation in the waking world as well as the dream itself.

The dream clearly portrayed a person named Banipal, who was Middle Eastern and had tatoos on his forearms. I recognized him from this dream, and even knew which part of the journal entry I wrote about our encounter.

Here is that excerpt from the dream:
Then this man comes into the room. He wants to find out what happened outside. He has tattoo’s and looks like he might be middle eastern.

I tell him that I just exposed the one who dreams us all, the conscious singularity of which all existents flows from, our true self.

He’s concerned about Sumara’s disappearance and I tell him she’s fine.
Here is the full dream:

Here is a photo of Banipal (to the left) in the middle is the famous retired US intelligence officer and trained remote viewer Joe McMoneagle and myself to the right. My memory of Banipal in the dream is an identical match for who you see in this photo. In dream-to-text one doesn’t have the ability to share this rich visual medium of dream information suffice to say I recognized him immediately when I met him that fateful day:

I wrote about this experience and my entire trip to the Monroe Institute which I encourage you to read here.


I also posted this dream on February 13th, 2018 on Reddit.

And linked it on my Twitter that same day.

Here is Banipal’s account via e-mail.

I was attending the Gateway Program March of this year at the Monroe Institute when I meet Ian for the first time. I was sitting at a table describing a story of a close friend. Ian stopped me mid sentence, pulled out his dream journal, and told me to read…
In a dream, Ian was educating my friend Tamara, whom in the journal was spelled Samara. Ian was explaining to her that she is dreaming, which she didn’t believe. Ian, in the dream began to manipulate the sky to prove that they are dreaming. This act by Ian amazed Tamara. Tamara then asked Ian if he is God, which Ian replied no. When she exited the dream, a middle eastern man with a tattoo on each arm entered the dream and inquired about her. Ian recognized my tattoos at the table……..

“Soon, you will discover, it is you that will become the most influential teacher for yourself.”

This dream is a prime example of symbolic precognitive dreams which I cover extensively in my paper, “The Theory of Precognitive Dreams”.

Is it the first time I’ve met someone in my dreams first? No. And not the first time I have confirmed it. On August 21st, 2010 a Shoshoni Dream Walker who heard about me via my interview with Anthony Peake wanted to try to share a dream with me and I posted a dream during that time where I met him and later confirmed via a video of him that he was in the dream mentioned in this post.

The meeting was confirmed when his wife linked a video of him after I posted the dream on a forum (now defunct) back in 2010.  I kept a transaction of the chat log with permission.

After I watched a video of him, it was undeniable that he was the person in that one particular dream.  From the above link.

[3:03:39 PM] Ian Wilson: That was definately Cochitlehua , I recognize him in the videos 100% certain of it now
[3:04:06 PM] Ian Wilson: Now I have a picture to match that person…

Before I met my wife, I had a dream about her son 10 years before I met him for the first time. When I met him, he was only 9 years old at the time but was the same person at the relative age in the dream. Why I remembered was he was African in the dream and where I live at that time there were not very many African people so I always wondered what the significance of that dream was and who that person was. Now I know.

It is not often that I have the dreams recorded so many times I just know when I meet a person in my waking life to whom I’ve met in a past dream, and this has been on going for over 30 years.

Recently I dreamed about peace between North and South Korea 93 days before the historic meeting between Kim Jong Un and Moon Jei which you can read in full here:

More concerning was that I dreamed about full scale nuclear war on April 5th, 2018 and was not alone. Some event in the future caused this probability spike and although this hasn’t happened yet, enough details have emerged to indicate either it was a symbolic precognitive dream or will be our future if the current course of events do not change the probability branch. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, do nothing let this emerge we are done.

Trust me, this is one dream I do not want to come true but I won’t deny the message in the dream was clear. It is in our probable future with a high probability of taking place. Hopefully it was just symbolic precognition as discussed in that above link.  Not only did I have this dream on that day I was contacted by another person who also had a similar dream, and their father also had a similar dream.

And yet another person had a similar dream on that same day who posted in the thread where I published the dream.

Here is another example of symbolic precognition that spooked out some Reddit users. I had dreamed about a cougar in my room and the next day there was a real event where a Cougar had hid in an alcove right beside the door of our apartment building and I was warned not to go outside because it was right by the door and this story broke in our local media.

That is just a fraction of the dreams that I’ve had which have come true.  Many are covered in my papers and book which are freely downloaded.

My January 25th, 2018 Dream of Peace between North Korea and South Korea relates to current events today on April 17th, 2018

Seeing the Future in Your Dreams

On January 25th, 2018 I had a dream that North Korea and South Korea announced peace on a TV news feed. In the Dream, I was in South Korea, here is an excerpt from the dream:
the family have the TV on which a news article covering the North Korean event. It was a bid for peace and unification. There was also this celebration and parade in the news clip.

April 27th, 2018 Historic Headline:

North And South Korea Declare End To War, Proclaim “New Era Of Peace”

This event took place 93 days after the dream.  North Korea and South Korea met for the first time in a bid for peace to end the 68 year long Korean war.

In my dream, the message about peace was brilliantly portrayed as a major event centered around this historic moment in Human history.

Link: North And South Korea Declare End To War, Proclaim “New Era Of Peace”

The announcement of this meeting took place April 17th, 2018.  The news was a buzz regarding North Korea and South Korea pending announcement that they are going to end the 68 year war and finally have peace.

As the event didn’t take place yet people who were reading this dream said at that time it hadn’t happened yet so this dream wasn’t a confirmation.  But that all changed on April 27th when Kim Jun Un met Moon Jae and Kim announced, “We solemnly declare to our 80m Koreans and the world that there will no more war on the Korean peninsula and a new era of peace has begun,”

As dreamed of the bid for peace and unification has taken place.  It has been on the media and TV as clearly demonstrated in the dream.  This isn’t the first time I have dreamed of something and it has come true.  In fact, I have had dreams that have come true spanning 31 years.

Here is a summary of meeting people in a dream before you meet them in waking life. In this one case I met this person 18 days after I dreamed about them in another country 4,500Kms from where I live and was able to show them my online dream entry confirming the encounter.

I talk about this experience in this youtube video.

I’ve written about precognition for over 20 years and have had many more mundane ones verified by friends and family over the years. Here are some of the articles I have published for free as I have never charged for any of my publications as my interest has always been centered around helping other people evolve their own relationships with their dreams through lucid dreaming and to encourage them to explore the most exciting form of precognition that I call “Lucid Precognitive Dreaming”


Here is a newspaper article from 1998 where I discuss my experience with dreaming the future.

I am not the only person who has had dreams that have come true.  Have you ever had Deja Vu where you linked familiarity to a memory from something you dreamed of days, weeks, months even years in the past?  If you can honestly answer yes then like me you know through your own first-person experiences that humans have the potential to dream the future.

I ran a twitter poll where 35% of the people polled said they have had Deja Reve (already dreamed) which is deja vu linked to past dreams.
CNN ran an article on January 8th, 2016 where researcher Anne Clearly discusses how people have deja reve.  Someone  linked this article on Reddit which became a front page post.  In the comment section, many people relate their own personal experiences with deja reve citing that is what they are experiencing, not deja vu.  I encourage you to read the comments.



Here is the Reddit link:

TIL of the concept of Deja Reve. Deja Reve is the same as Deja Vu but instead of feeling that you’ve experienced an event once before, you instead feel you’ve dreamt of this event once before. from todayilearned

In fact, Carl Jung had his own experience with precognition.  J. W. Dune who wrote “An Experiment in Time” where he details with evidence his experiences.  This phenomena goes back and has been debated by Aristotle in 350BCE.

Now not everyone has precognitive dreams. Generally many of these types of people are skeptical simply because they lack first-person veridical evidence. Proving precognition isn’t easy largely due to dream-to-text conversion which I cover in my paper, “The Theory of Precognitive Dreams” and like many groups of people who elicit their own belief-systems, there are a lot of skeptical arguments against precognition from law-of-large numbers, confirmation bias, coincidence, selective memory right down to simply saying it’s mental illness or what ever argument they can come up with to refuse to accept this part of human experience.

Arguments are not facts. They are not evidence.  They are simply opinions and skeptics have tenants just as much as religions do.  They are their own group of people with their own beliefs that they militantly defend even though some (not all) are completely argument based beliefs to support their own agenda and ideologies.  Sadly, this has caused a lot of challenges for society as we are still debating the legitamacy of precognition and are no further ahead than Aristotle when he debated this in 350BCE.

However, I understand that perspective knowing up until my first precognitive dream I would have never believed such an ability possible.  In fact, I was being groomed a skeptic up until I discovered lucid dreaming so didn’t believe in paranormal ideas like ghosts, UFOs, bigfoot and had used critical thinking and skepticism to come out of religious beliefs that I didn’t accept.

I am still very skeptical about almost everything that I come across.  I have never seen a bigfoot so don’t know if they exist.  I’ve never sat down and chatted with an Alien, so don’t know if they are real or not.

Sometimes, it takes the act of actually experiencing it and many times to fully understand that despite the arguments against precognitive dreaming, this is an actual real phenomena that affects a lot of people and despite the skeptical belief that it does not happen doesn’t disprove that those who know this experience through their own dreams are disingenuous. I sincerely doubt even in the face of overwhelming evidence that any skeptic would ever see the genuine truth that precognition through dreams exists until they experience it through their own dreams for themselves.   It’s hard to break free of any belief-system and I agree entirely that had I not had my own experience with it, I would never believe it either. Unfortunately, this has affected my life profoundly spanning 31 years so I know how real and genuine it is based on valuable first-person experience.

For example, I have already heard the coincidence argument from skeptics also the idea that I was influenced by the media. However on January 25th, 2018 there was absolutely nothing suggesting this historic move towards peace that took place on April 27th, 2018. For 68 years the war has only ever been held back by an armistice treaty, not a peace treaty and the escalations to a major second war with North Korea was undeniable in all media from nuclear bomb testing, missile testing and strong rhetoric. My bias at that time was we would absolutely see war break out in the Korean peninsula. If anything I would be dreaming about war not peace.

On January 25th, 2018 the Doomsday clock was set to 2 minutes to midnight citing North Korean tensions and there was a lot of build-up towards potential war between the US and North Korea. If the media was influencing my dreams, I would have dreamed about nuclear war with North Korea instead, something completely unheard of. I dreamed of peace.

In my case, I simply have the experience and it comes in many different examples through out the years so though I would share.
