Boy Scouts

Dreamed before 1961 by a Maryland woman, reported to the Rhine Institute

A woman in Maryland dreamed that her little son, just a toddler, followed two small Boy Scouts, whose faces she saw clearly in her dream, to the creek bank nearby. In the dream her child fell into the creek and was drowned.

The next morning the very Scouts about whom she had dreamed, and whom she did not know and never had seen before, were seated on the curb of her front lawn.

What did she do? Her solution was very simple. She says, "My son did not get out of the house that day."


Her dream, and her response, raises questions: Surely one can't go through life indulging every anxiety dream? Where do you draw the line? Was this superstitious behavior?

No. The dream predicted two things: two unknown Boy Scouts will show up, and they'll endanger your toddler. The first half promptly came true and is unlikely to be chance. Purely aside from her recognition of them as individuals, how often do strange Boy Scouts appear on your curb? In my view, ignoring a dream that's already proven itself predictive would be superstitious!

You don't have to know how precognition works to use it, any more than you need to prove how retinas detect distant objects before you can steer away from oncoming trucks.
