Are People In R.E.M. Sleep Losing Their Religion?

Have you ever had a dream set in a really specific place—and not a familiar one, like your house/school/work/whatever—and then, like three years after you have that dream—return to that location in another dream?

That happened to me last night. I was in this huge field in Oklahoma. I knew I had been there before in a dream I’d had a long time ago, and I was so happy to be there again. I knew where everything was and I knew one reason that I liked the field was because there was this giant kite-shaped cloud that was always hanging above it (which, of course, I saw as I looked up in the dream). It was just this incredible feeling of familiarity. I don’t remember a place ever feeling so familiar in a dream before.

Does that ever happen to you?

    YES!!! this actually happens to me somewhat frequently and there is always this weird sort of euphoria about returning to these “places” … i thought i was the only one!


    1. It was so strange! I was just ridiculously happy to be in that field. I’m glad someone knows what I’m talking about. :)


  2. Its happened to me a couple of times… though I can’t tell if it is actually a revisit to a place I had dreamed of before, or if it is just false dream induced deja vu.


What sayest thou? Speak!
