    My recurring dream...and any other inexplicable weirdness

    About 10 years ago, I was recently divorced and living in Swanage Dorset.
    I only ended up there because i had these vague memories of the place my dad used to take me as a kid.
    Fed up with life, i pointed my car South and ended up about as near to the Isle of White as you could get.

    That's all by the by, but I started getting these dreams.
    Not always the same dream, but the same place.

    Every night.
    Continuously.

    I started describing the dream to friends, several suggestions about the possible location.
    i was very sure it was real.
    The dream was big, comforting.
    I was always happy.

    5 more years of this dream.

    I was living in Bangkok, not at all happy.
    Didn't mind my job, but didn't like the place at all.
    I booked a holiday to ChiangMai with this girl who was my boss that I was shagging secretly and eventually embarrassed by.

    As we were driving over the Nawarrat bridge, my skin started to prickle in a way that your skin would never prickle if you hadn't dreamt of this bridge every night for the last god knows how many years wouldn't.
    I was fukking speechless.
    The Moat, the bars, the lights, the river.
    I knew what was around every corner.

    I went back to Bangkok for a short time, but knew where I belonged.

    I got my transfer, the dream stopped yet the dream has continued.

    This is true.
    Any of you had weird inexplicable shit happen?

    I dreamt last night that I was the only remaining man on earth who still carried the pure aryan genes. The Queen of Venus is sending an express starship to transport me a rented planetoid where all the most beautiful virgins are kept under wraps. It will be my unenviable task to impregnate every last one of them. My question is, do I need a NI visa and should I tell the Queen I'm a scouser?

    I don't really believe you CMN....I mean the place might have been similar, but was it exactly the same, or are you just making yourself believe it was the same....

    that's fair enough Nik.

    i wouldn't believe it either.

    Pisstaking aside, this is a pretty heavy topic and I believe him, these things do happen. It's a recurring dream topped off by a big helping of deja vu, but with standard deja vu you don't know how you remember the place.

    It would freak me out if it happened to me so it more than justifies a post on the subject.

    I've never really had a recurring dream, I have woken up and picked up where I left off and on about 4 occasions in my life I have had a lucid dream which was amazing, I knew I was dreaming and could do whatever the fuck I wanted.

    Anyway, here is the reply you want CMN, take it seriously or mock it, up to you.

    Before you were born you were shown your life, the memory of this 'movie' so to speak was erased, as it is in all of us, 20 to 30 minutes after you were born. The erasure is not always 100% and what you have experienced is possibly a form of deja va caused by a glitch in the erasure.

    The place holds no other significance because you would have gone there regardless if you had had the dreams about it or not, it is only significant to you because for whatever reason, that is the part of your life story that was not entirely deleted after birth and the echo has presented itself in your sleep and freaked you out, (understandably), on the day you arrived at that inevitable point in your life.

    I say inevitable because there's no way you could have avoided it unless you'd known it was coming.

    When you die it will all be explained.
    "I'm an outsider by choice, but not truly. It's the unpleasantness of the system that keeps me out. I'd rather be in, in a good system. That's where my discontent comes from: being forced to choose to stay outside.
    My advice: Just keep movin' straight ahead. Every now and then you find yourself in a different place."

    Thank you TGS.
    That's as good an explanation as I've ever had.

    your posts are definitely getting gayer - mentioning Erasure twice in one sentence is a real giveaway

    Here's a book on psychic dreams, written by a psychologist friend of mine:

    Amazon.com: Dreams That Come True: Their Psychic and Transforming Powers: Books: David Phd Ryback

    He's also published in Psychology Today (older article, might be difficult to find). It's a rather common and well-documented phenomenon.

    I once described a dream to a friend of mine, in which we had been driving a particular model/color car. She got a very weird look on her face -- it was the car her husband drove, and he had been killed in a car accident three years before I met her.

    I used to have this recurring dream that woke every time. There was no visual or interaction just a single pistol shot very close as if in the same room. I would wake with a start completely convinced it was a real shot. happened about four times a year for abut 6 years. Just stopped.
    I'm with Andy, hardly ever remember my dreams. There are a few time I've remembered them and occassionlly that memory has lasted more than few moments. Those I remember, there is very little detail or visual. I've never seen another's dream and find it difficult to believe when people go into detail about their memory of dreams or visual details.


    THe mind is capable of thoughts and imaginings we have no control over and may not fit our narrow view of what is possible. I think when folks get into their dreams and try placing day-to-day visual or sensory parameters on them they are trying to make them fit into a preconceived idea of reality.

    Here is a task teh Don Juan gave to carlos casteneda in one of his books (I always thought this was a great idea), when you are dreaming try to remember to look at your hands (in your dream). Seems like a way to bring your conscious self into your dreams. I always forget. Maybe I should try harder.

    I have had reacurring dreams...but only a reacurrance of certain things that i do, ..or can do in my dreams - meaning i can always do the same thing in my dreams, but dont always do them in the same stuation. I can fly in my dreams ...but only once i have realized it is a dream. what sucks is when i realise i am dreaming, .. i wake up. so i try and stay in the in between area between realizing and not realising it is a dream for as long as i can .... the other thing that happens is that i try to run away from something but i can't ...that really sucks ...unless can fly away that is ..

    i dont remember many dreams these days, unless i have a night off drinking ...... but i don't drink anymore..









































    or any less

    I remember several times that I was having a dream about dreaming -- went several layers down, and it was WEIRD! Felt good to wake up the next morning.

    I've always believed deja vu to be nothing more that a mix-up in the brain - the next time you experience it try to predict what will happen next and I strongly suspect that you will not be able to - It is just an illusion - As for your dream CMN, I would say that you connected two similarities and your brain merged them into one 'certainty', and now you have created your own reality - It suited your purpose - This is not meant as a criticism, just my take on it - People who want to see ghosts or UFOs very often will do so - Remember your story of the night you took a picture of a 'ghost'? - You strike me as the type of person who is susceptible to believe in the fantastical - Once again, not meant as a criticism, just my take on it.

    ^ so you think it's just wiered science, danbo? (I messed myself over the girl in that movie) ...i am quite open to the theory that a spritual existence exists ..... i just hate it when people start asking silly questions like who, where, and when...
