    yeah, I remembering reading somewhere that many prophets communicated with God via meditations for future guidance. i am sure God communicating back to them via dreams and missions to help them do whatever He wants them to do.
    i read that everyone dreams every night, but i dont always remember my dreams. sometimes i wake in the morning remember nothing from the dream.
