This has happened to me only once that I know of...as I think I might have been born dreaming lucid dreams. (thought everyone did)
A few years ago I had a dream I was in a weird town something that might be in Harry Potter... weird old buildings with odd shaped flags and towers. My boys were small around 4 and 6 in this dream (in reality they were 18 and 20) and they were skipping and running round my mother and I as we walked and ventured into these old haunted type shops. Oddly my (EX) mother inlaw and ex husband were leaning us around this town. I have been divorced at that time about 17 yrs. so it was odd for me to even dream about them....

The next morning I phoned my mother and I started to tell her the dream I had... she started to tell me hers too... and yes they were the same dream... same people... same ages of my kids.... and we were in that weird eerie town with tons of flags flying!
I would say I was in a weird eerie town... she would reply yes, I dreamt of a weird town too with flags every where
I would say yes and my boys were in the dream and she said yes but the were only 4 or 5 in my dream (as they were in mine)
then she said the weirdest part was your Ex husband and MIL were also in the dream... I about feel out of my chair!

So weird! Even the things in the shops were similar....

anyone else ever had an experience like that?

This morning was strange, i was in a lucid state and it was as if I was hearing peoples thoughts, voices of people i've never heard before saying things, seconds later I was deep into a dream

Lucid dreaming is a Subject I find endlessly fascinating.. My Sister Amanda and I have had a similar experience about five years ago.. Before I go into detail.. I should probably mention my sister and I, have been very close.. Ever since I was born..As she was always more of a Mother too me then a Sister..

So anyway it was about five years ago as I have already said.. Now I have always been able to come and go from lucid states of consciousness effortlessly, For as far back as I can remember.. But this time it was different Without going into to much personal detail, My Sister has always been a very spiritual person, However I have not..

So one night I drifted too bed as I always do nothing new this night from any other, At some point in the night I slipped into a lucid state.. But my dream seemed different this time.. Almost alien, or foreign to me.. Something was not right about this dream.. At the time I could not put my finger on it.. But now looking back on it, It was as if i entered someone else's dream state..This is a concept I still find extremely difficult to explain..I could see but it was as if it was not with my own eyes..I could feel, hear, and even think..But these were not my thoughts..Something was very different..

It was soon that i realized I was not me, I was my sister.. I was experiencing the world through my sisters eyes..Thinking her thoughts..Feeling her emotions..

Strangely enough.. The next day I came to find out my sister had the same experience only she saw the world through my perspective.. I have never forgotten this experience. From time to time My sister and I still talk about it..Trying to make since of it. She has made peace with it, As it still lurks in the back of my mind..

Aha! Or maybe the Dream were talking about was shared reality just as we could be dreaming now and consider This shared reality, The Difference between the two really cant be identified, Just like in a dream where we have to prove we are asleep at the same time in what we perceive to be "Awake" must also be questioned

I’ve recently been listing and mediating with this.

On my first attempt I saw a young woman with long red hair standing in field and surrounded my green sweeping plains, it reminded me allot of Scotland and Ireland.

For some reason or another my tears started flowing it was a very deep feeling of loneliness for me.

Though I don’t know if it was my imagination or I was truly seeing my past life, but never the less it was an experience and the tears could have been some form of tension release.

Maybe you should try and see what images come into your mind while doing it.

Oh so weird.

I’m also sure I read that the chattykat (OP) said she was
someone else in her dream. I had to re-read the OP, I even looked to see if she had edited it. But she hasn’t. That’s why I posted the past life regression video.

Yet another weird unexplained event

Don't think I Would be able to disprove that one Ted..Reminds me of the quote by Chaung Tzu “I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man?”

This is interesting, I will have to give it a try..I find it easy entering meditative states late at night in the early am hours..I don't know why..But I may give this a try later.

I only get lucid dreams when I fall asleep listening to something like a movie, or even the radio sometimes. Just my brain placing things from the environment into my dreams. That's how I rationalize it anyways, as for having the same dream as another I don't in general tell people about my dreams so I wouldn't know.

Makes perfect since, it is called Dream incubation.

Hi there , I'm familiar with what you are talking about . I've seen it referred to as 'shared dreaming' quite a bit .

You might want to check out an author by the name of Carlos Castaneda . I think he referred to it as 'double-dreaming' , if I recall correctly .

Carlos received his Bachelor's and Doctoral based on the work he described in the first three books he wrote while studying anthropology at UCLA . He wrote about a dozen books overall .

His Phd was later stripped from him because of the controversy over whether his work was fact or fiction . Either way , I still recommend his work to those who are interested in lucid dreaming .

I had his complete works , but a house fire claimed this along with the rest of my library . I can't recall exactly which book it was in which he discusses what you have described . It may have been " The Art of Dreaming " , but I can't be sure of that .

I found his writings very fascinating as well as captivating .

Anyway , here's a link to get you familiar with the man and his work . Enjoy .

www.biblio.com...

Oh yea , look for the book that includes a character by the name of "La Gorda" . This was a female whom he practiced his 'art' with . They would actually make plans to meet up in dreams , from different locations . According to Castaneda , they got to be pretty successful with it .

As always , form your own opinion on it . Hope you enjoy .
