What is prophetic?

In everyday life, we often hear the phrase "had a prophetic dream," but do we understand well what a prophetic means? Let's look at this issue in more detail.

Prophetic - Prophet

Nowadays, the word "prophetic" is used mainly when we talk about dreams, but it can also be used to speak of a person. In this case, "prophetic" means a person with the ability to foresee the future, to prophesy. For example, in Pushkin’s line ".. as a prophetic Oleg is now assembled," the poet meant that Prince Oleg had the talents of a prophet. Now it is rare to hear what they say about a person in this way. Rather, they use the words "prophet" or "soothsayer", and the beautiful old word "prophetic" can only be found in old books.

Prophetic dreams

The ability to look into the future since ancient times worried the minds of people, so it is not surprising that dreams were often attributed to mystical properties, including prophetic properties. What is a prophetic dream? This is a dream that somehow predicts the events of the future. Prophetic dreams are different.It can only be a hint of an event, or it can be a dream of a whole story, which will later become a reality.

Modern science recognizes the possibility of the appearance of prophetic dreams, because our brain continues to work even during sleep, projecting information about everyday life into dreams.

Previously, people believed that dreams are not just a dream, so over the centuries they have developed a whole system of signs, allowing you to determine whether a person has a dream or a normal one, and also to correctly decipher its meaning.
