When author Andrew Paquette first dreamed of the future he was able to avert a mugging that possibly saved his life. Over the course of the next twenty years he kept meticulous records of his dreams discovering in the process that future dreams are not only possible they are common. Even more importantly because of their quantity he was able to see that his dreams were not just isolated events but remembered snatches of a continuum of existence shared by everyone. In this groundbreaking book he destroys the myths of what dreams are how they are described what they mean and why they are or are not important.
Colin Wilson, renowned British author of dozens of books on philosophy, mysticism and the occult has this to say
This could be one of the most important books since Dunne's Experiment with Time.
Andrew Paquette has worked in comics, TV, film, and video games as an artist and art director for over twenty years. During that time, he discovered he was psychic.

''In the late 1980s, Andrew Paquette began to realize that his dreams were not simply residue from the day or chaotic collections of images and symbols, but, instead, were messages of importance for him on many levels in his life. Nudged by the lack of social acknowledgment of the value of dreams and the messages they provide, the author began a 20-year journey into recording and understanding his dreams; dreams which encompass telepathy, collective experience, waking life guidance, precognition, and out-of-body adventures.
The book begins with the telling of a startling dream in which the author is mugged and shot to death while living in Holland. Frightened by the dream, Paquette makes the decision to return to his loved ones in the United States, only to have the dream re-enacted in waking life as he is about to leave the country. Armed with the keen memory of the dream, he takes action to change the course of events, and succeeds in scaring the muggers off (and living to tell the tale!). Only later does he realize that the dream was not only a warning, but a precognitive event. And so begins the author's awakening to a new realm of consciousness, which, over time, becomes a reliable guide to the puzzles of mundane reality.
Like a psychic detective, the author shares compelling dream/life stories with us as he wends his way through to discovering the nature of his dream life and it's hidden messages relating to both simultaneous real time and the future. With the author, we begin to see that his strong intuitive abilities are developing and manifesting through the venue of his dreams.
Of particular fascination is Paquette's initiation into contact with ghosts and spirits of the deceased, raising intriguing speculation into the existence and nature of an afterlife as well as the potential for other realms of existence beyond our own. The author learns to communicate with and aid these astral travelers as his own skills and awareness grow over time.
More than a dream journal, this book asks difficult questions and probes the author's dreams and waking life experience to make sense of both in a way that brings a universal quality of meaning to his insights and understandings.
The author's engaging writing style keeps the pages turning. Of interest to anyone who is fascinated with dreams, spirituality, telepathy, precognition, intuition, and life after death, this book is a great read and hard to put down!''
