Ask Dr. Orloff

Why do I pick up scary global events in dreams?

Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,

I'm still struggling to be able to discern a "wide awake night" when I know something is wrong... but don't know what... like the 2004 tsunami, or the Benghazi attack, or the recent embassy attack. I feel programmed to pick these things up...any advice?

Answer: Dear Rosemarie,

It is very common for intuitives to pick up traumas and pain world-wide. It's part of being open in intuition and dreams. The horrible attacks, the deaths, the disasters are all a louder signal on an intuitive level. So if you have the receptors and your mind is still, you may pick it up. Send prayers and love but do not think you are doing anything wrong by picking up suffering. It's just so poignant and easy to pick up.
Sweet dreams,
