Types of Synchronicity --Prophetic

 

(3) The coincidence of a psychic state with a corresponding future external event — i.e. a foreknowledge in dreams.

Jung gives an impressive example of a young friend of his, who, having been promised a trip to Spain by his father, dreamed that he was in Spain, walking in a street which led to a square where there was a Gothic cathedral. He turned to the right and was met in another street by an elegant carriage drawn by two cream-coloured horses. He related the dream to Jung and other friends, and later went to Spain, and in one of the streets recognised the city of his dream, he found the square, the cathedral and to his utter amazement saw the cream-coloured horses and carriage exactly as depicted in his dream. (McBride, 1990)
