Major Earthquake Predicted
image A South African psychic by the name of 'SilverJade' is predicting that a series of earthquakes "and other natural disasters" will hit the west coast of America on February 23, and she's issued a press release to warn everyone. If you read through her website you'll discover that she learned this was all going to happen in a dream. In the dream she was stuck inside a building that was shaking. Then she woke up and saw that it was 1:23 am. She felt that there was some kind of significance to this time. She also had a strong feeling that the place she was seeing in her dream was San Diego. This is especially interesting to me since I live in San Diego. She came up with some kind of convoluted explanation to account for the significance of the number 1:23, but I'm at a loss to follow her reasoning. It has something to do with this: "Starting in San Diego take an Easterly heading and set your bearing to 312 degrees... Plotting a straight line at this bearing takes us right through the epicentre of the recent undersea quake off the coast of Indonesia." Anyway, if a major earthquake really does hit San Diego on February 23 I swear I'll give up being such a skeptic and become a disciple of SilverJade. (via Gullibility Isn't in the Dictionary)

I had a dream a couple years ago I was in a condo overlooking a beach and a huge tsunami wave came and swamped the building. I was high enough in the building that the water didn't reach me but more waves came and rocked the building enough that it collapsed and fell into the water. I ended up being stuck under debris in the water. It was very scary. Does this mean that I predicted the christmas tsunamis without even realizing it?

To be honest, my dream took place in this condo I've stayed at several times in Daytona Beach and it was the Atlantic ocean, not the Indian. But why include details that would detract from my super accurate tsunami prediction?

I often dream of the future
Shame very few ever seem to come true
I'm still waiting for the dream I had about winning the lottery to come to pass

Perhaps it would help if I actually bought a lottery ticket once in a while.

I once dreamed that the capital of the United States was moving from Washington, D.C. to St. Louis, Missouri. I'm still waiting for that one to come true. When it does, though, boy am I going to clean up on all the St. Louis real estate I've been buying!

I hope no one actually BOUGHT the land they were selling on the moon, because in my dream, it is destroyed and some parts fall to the earth.

OK, it's February 24. Is San Diego still there, or not?

What's funny is I came across this article doing research after having a dream myself last night.
I dreamed Hawaii had a tsunami and I saw a sign with the words "San Diego" on it.
The beach was flooding in Hawaii and San Diego was under water.

I don't know anything about San Diego.

Basically, I have been dreaming about flooding and Hawaii for a few years now. Last night was the first time San Diego came into the picture.
