Dream Zone: My daughter and I had the exact same dreamWritten by Lauri Loewenberg | | email@example.com
“Dreams are spiritual in origin and are there to help, not to hinder or criticize, so never allow yourself to become discouraged by your dreams.” - Wilda B. Tanner
My daughter ended up sleeping in my bed last night. We had the same exact dream. We went to a huge kid’s play land, the size of a large home. I couldn’t find her and I was going all over asking for help. There were so many kids. My daughter said, in her dream, she was at a play land and couldn’t find me. She was asking adults to help her. Can we have the same dream at the same time? – Candice 30, Salt Lake City
Lauri: Yes, two people can have the same dream on the same night. It’s called shared dreaming and it usually happens to two people who are very close: husband and wife, best friends, mother and daughter. The reason why is because the two individuals are dealing with the same issue and their subconscious responds to it similarly by giving them comparable dreams. That being said, is there anything going on in your waking lives that is pulling you away from your daughter that would cause the two of you to miss each other? Are you working too much? Is there a shared custody arrangement? Anything like that? When you search for someone in a dream it often means you miss them or miss something about them.
Candice replies: Yes! I have been working more hours & she is starting a private school in a few weeks. She is going from half day at school to full day at school. I’m a single parent so we are super close. Thank you.
