Visions of the 9/11 Attack



On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, I awoke early in the morning and decided to fall back asleep in order to dream. I felt I had dreaming to do. Following my return to "sleep" on this morning of the tragic attack on the World Trade Center, I had a dream, somewhere between 8 and 8:45 a.m., perhaps a little earlier. In my dream I was on top of a large building, clearly in NYC, near the water, looking down on roads and highways with street signs, watching a policeman dressed in white ride a white bicycle through the streets. I awoke full of peace and retained a memory of this dream, planning to write it down, as I do with all memorable dreams, to see if they have significance that can be identified in the future. A couple of hours later, I heard about the terrorist attack and turned on the television. I saw the destruction. What I saw corresponded with my dream scene remarkably. The timing was clearly synchronistic. - Aaron


A few weeks ago I got news that my classmate of school days is now President of United Airlines. I fetched our graduating class picture and scanned it for a couple of friends around the globe, and for a couple of days I had been thinking of Ronojoy Dutta (now known as Rono J. Dutta; hence, I did not recognize him when I read the news of his ascendancy up the corporate ladder a year or so ago). On the night of September 10, I dreamt that Rono and I met on the streets of New York under the background of the twin towers. He rushed toward me and we embraced as two old friends should, but Rono was crying. I mistook them for tears of joy as we had not met since 1968 or so. He then told me that something dreadful had happened and both of us turned to see the twin towers in flames. I woke up immediately, switched on my computer and logged on to my e-mail. There was a message from one of my friends in New York telling us of the disaster that had just struck. I am in a time zone that is 12 hours away from N.Y. eastern time. - Anjan N.


On the night of July 29, 2001, I dreamed I was shopping with my mother and sister in downtown New York City. I invited them to sit down in the park. Then I started to see a huge fire and a shower of stones over the city. Everybody started running like crazy, and I can still feel the touch of the people while we tried to save their lives. I am still very scared because I continue dreaming bad stuff. In one of my dreams I was waiting for the end of the world. - Jacqueline M.


On the morning of the World Trade Center tragedy, at approximately 6:30 in the morning, I became quite preoccupied with The Tower card from the tarot. For some reason, the image of the card popped into my head, and at the time I had trouble making the connection because it had nothing to do with what was going on around me. At that point, I decided to take heed of the meaning of the card and prepare myself for something major and possibly traumatic. I arrived at my friend's house and told her that I had this overwhelming sense that something tragic was going to happen, and that was going to be pretty significant not only to me, but to many other people. It wasn't until I saw the news at 9:30 a.m. and saw the fall of the first tower that I was able to make the connection to what my experience truly foretold. - Rachel C.


During the last two days before the attack on the WTC, I felt extremely nervous, out of sorts, uneasy and slightly nauseous. The night before, I didn't sleep well at all. I felt a tightness in my chest along with the feeling that something very bad was about to happen. I didn't dream about anything, or I don't remember any dreams. I awoke that morning a little before 6 a.m. Pacific time and turned on the TV on my way to the kitchen. I felt fine. All the nervousness and unease of the previous two days had disappeared. I could barely remember feeling nervous and uneasy. Then as I watched the 6 o'clock news, there was a breaking news alert. A plane or helicopter had crashed into the World Trade Center! As I watched, I knew - I absolutely knew - it was no accident. A few minutes later, I felt as though someone was standing behind me. It made my skin crawl, and at that instant the second plane crashed into the WTC! I don't know if my unease was a psychic experience or not. In any case, it was very disturbing. - Marci


Back in May of 2001, I was told by spirit: "There will be a war soon, not on American soil, but on foreign soil and many lives will be taken. The person that they think it is at first, is not the right one, but they will find the right one." Days before the attacks, I was very sad, always crying... and then I kept hearing "September 11th." When the news was broadcasting that the government thought perhaps there might be another attack on America on September 22, I called my local FBI agency and told them that in numerology 11 and 22 are master numbers, but that I didn't know enough about numerology to tell them what they actually meant. They thanked me and, thankfully, there were no attacks on the 22nd. Could it be that they took extra precautions to avoid it from my information? Maybe. The day of the attack when I was told "one" plane hit the WTC, I "heard" two planes, long before two planes hit the WTC and my thought was: This isn't an accident, this is intentional. - Cheryl
