That is a concern I have as well. I come from a strongly intellectual background, so even though I've stopped calling those dreams random coincidences, it's still really easy for my mind to get tied up in knots overthem. In her book Diary of a Psychic
, by Sonia Chocquette talks about how her mentor would have her practice intuition without any feedback whether she was right or not. The point was that she had to learn to trust without confirmation and to be confident enough in her purpose not to need validation.
I'm not there yet, but it leads me to ask, have you explored your purpose yet? I expect you will find a connection between the two. My purpose has nothing to do with becoming a professional psychic or anything close to that, but it definitely helps me understand why this happens and what I should do with it. You might consider the idea that this might be happening to help you wake up to your higher awareness and take the next step.
