Welcome to the Precognitive Dreaming Contest June, 2020

Can you dream about the future? Do precognitive dreams occur?

In this International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) event, participants will try to dream of a target picture before it is randomly selected from a pool of over 150 images stored on a computer. Click here to view results of past contests.

How the Precognitive Dream Contest Works

Participants are asked to follow the instructions below. The goal is to dream ahead of time of a target picture selected on Tuesday June 16, 2020.

All entries must be submitted the day before the target is selected, which means that dream reports must be posted no later than midnight Eastern Daylight Time (9 PM PDT), on Monday, June 15.

After the facilitators review each entry and the commentary of participants, “Precognitive Dream Champs” will be announced on the discussion board on Wednesday June 17.

Precognitive Dream Contest Instructions

1)    Take these instructions to bed with you.

2)  Make sure you place a pen and paper or other recording device within easy reach of your bedside.

3)  Read over this paragraph at bedtime, and focus on your intent:

I am requesting information from my dreams. Tonight I will have a dream of the target picture that will be posted on Tuesday, June 16, 2020. I will waken with the dream fresh in my mind. I will remember the dream imagery easily and experience the contest target clearly. I will be able to understand the target picture in the same way that I will when I see it later on my screen.

4)  Repeat these (or similar) instructions to yourself as you fall asleep.

5)  Record your dream memories as soon as you wake up, even if it’s the middle of the night. Be as descriptive as you can. If you record more than one dream, please give each a number.

6)  Post your dreams on the discussion board before midnight, Eastern Daylight Time (9 PM PT) on Monday, June 15. (In European time zones, the deadline is 4-6 hours later, for example, 4 AM Greenwich Mean Time on 16/06/2020.) You may use your own name or a pseudonym, but do provide us with some means of identifying you.

7)  Watch for the target picture, which will be posted on Tuesday morning EDT. You are then invited to post your thoughts and insights about correspondences between the target and the posted dreams, both your own and those of others.

8) Questions? Post them on the discussion board.
