Recurring Dreams
« on: August 12, 2012, 07:49:41 PM »
I find dreams and recurring dreams quite interesting, so I wondered if anybody here has ever had the same dream more than once, or has had a similar experience to me.

I can't say that I've ever had the same dream twice but I do sometimes have a similar dream to something I dreamed years before. For example, last night I had a dream about a scrap yard that was also a zoo. (I know it's weird, most of my dreams are!) There was a chimpanzee in a chair-like cage, so it was held in the same place. There was a strange sort of cheetah type animal that looked like it was ill and couldn't control its muscles. The staff had put some kind of shoes on it, and thinking about it now, I think they were a strange sort of crampons. Some elephants walked by and they were huge! Their legs were about four times as long as normal and they just walked by quickly whilst I was thinking, 'Wow! They are massive!'

Anyway, to get to the point, I feel like I've dreamt of this weird place before. Not the same exact dream, but the same place. It's not very often that I remember a dream so clearly, but the times I do, it's with this association of familiarity. Whilst I was actually dreaming I remember feeling that I had 'been' there before, but it wasn't lucid in the sense that I knew I was dreaming. Just that I'd been there before.

I just wondered if anyone else has these feelings of familiarly despite it not actually being the same dream. Or even if anyone has had a similar dream with long-legged elephants!

My karma ran over your dogma.

Absolutely. If I'm not controlling my dream (i.e. It is a "natural" dream) I often realize partway through that I've been to this area before or I've already done certain things already. What's weird is sometimes I have these same realizations about real life.

I always have the same dream of falling down the stairs in the house I used to live in. It really seems like it's happening though and I still wake up with a jolt every time it happens.
