It's not as daft as it may appear or sound, there wouldn't be a recognised term for it if it didn't hold water = Its called PRODROMIC DREAMING and.....
"It's when we dream of something before it becomes apparent and is most commonly used in the case of detecting a sickness " as "Our dreaming subconcious mind can be and is more in touch with what is going on in our bodies than our waking minds."
There's countless accounts of this phenomenon and Dr,s in all likelihood too, will have found patients in their waiting rooms discussing such matters. Some Drs have the good grace to take them seriously. The "evidence and info is out there" but some rigid Belief Systems can and do Block such consideration..and perhaps clues, answers!
Dreamwork is a whole topic in itself, like astronomy and sadly underestimated but its not surprising!. But It can be bountiful and rewarding and revealing and Healing to the soul hence body and thus remarkable. 7/10 students in a class recorded have had precognitive dreams at some stage. Maybe its a generation thing and open mindedness of them?
Ever heard the term or hear someone say to a problem that they'll "sleep on it"?...Einstein the scientist did and Eureka! And If everything is measureable in Energy...including vibrations stemmed from thought...a loving pure thought through prayer...is surely and clearly as powerful and as rational and an effective medicine too?
For the spiritualy shy..
Just send your subconscious repeatedly a sincere question at night time and observe what comes up in dreams and record it..
