Strange Worlds In Your Dreams

Now i know yall have expereinced visiting
at least one weird place at some point in your
dreams so can you describe as best as u can
what this world looked like and how real it felt
to you. Did you feel it was an alternate universe/Dimension ? A total reality experience
or just another dream. Did you meet the
inhabitants of this world? What did they look like?
Do you think we have the power to create entire
worlds and sub realities in our dream state ?
Or are these "places" as real as the one
you find in your waking state.

Love to hear your tales no matter how far out
they seem 8)

Peace,
Tunde

Hey Tunde, (interesting name if you get the 'd' and 'e' back to front like I just did. :D

Out of all the weird things that have happened to me I can't say I recall ever dreaming of a land that's different to this one.

That in itself is weird to me. You would think I'd have dreamed at least one but noooooo!

Maybe I'm earth bound. ???

Have you dreamt of any lands different than here?

you mean ED NUT ;D ?

seriously though iam really interested in
what people can recall form the dream state
of other places and locations they may have
encountered.

Iam abit surprised you havent dreamt of anything
other than the land your familiar with.
Is this the same for everyone else?

I remember one world quite vividly which had
what i would call a Crimson City.
The whole place had a red/pinkish hue like a permanent
twilight with red cloads. The city had twinlkling lights
and i remember floating down to take a peek but
as i got closer i lost all memory of what happened next.
Its one of my rare dreams that just stay itched in
my memory forever.

Anyone else visited strange lands in their dreams?
Come on there must be at least someone out there
with a tale to tell :)

Peace,
Tunde

I have a million worlds in my dreams. Highly detailed, fully real worlds that just aren't "here".

They range from alternate versions of this world, to worlds with the same general base of existence though things may be very different, to worlds where I'm a whale or some other creature we don't even have here, or worlds where everything is so different it is very difficult to understand let alone recall.

I thought this was normal for everybody.

I've been aware of 'many worlds' through dreaming since I was a small child. I lucid dreamed at will from the time I was about 4 until I was 18, and read books on OBE and Lucid Dreaming, at which point 98% of my ability to invoke them both at will vanished, why the heck is that I wonder?!--I think it pulled my left brain into the mix. (Also I felt the books were such attempts to convince the reader it WAS possible, that my mind told me they actually believed or felt others believed it was NOT, and weirdly it had the opposite effect on me!)

Some other worlds I am in regularly and others rarely. Usually I am not aware of 'this' world while in them, but sometimes I am, and sometimes the awareness makes me marvel at the differences.

In worlds similar to earth-human yet different, I can get caught up in interest about small things. Like a material composite buildings are made with that doesn't exist here. Like one world where for whatever reason they had almost zero furniture including in the kitchen, and their kitchen stock was kept in net bags, hanging from ropes from the ceiling, several small nets per rope. Many situational differences. One world where dragons were real. One world where the world was overpopulated and 'entertainment' included a high chance of death and a sort of suicidal message was pervasive on signs and billboards etc. everywhere. These are simple things of course.

Most of the worlds have full integrity. I mean, I know what a "normal" dream is, a sort of collage of stuff, I have those too, but most of my dreams of other 'worlds' are linear, detailed, and as long as I'm not overtired or eating terribly or in some kind of emotional denial during that time, I usually remember at least some of them.

At some points -- not recently, but years ago -- I've had a tendency to 'become aware of' simultaneous existences in other worlds. When I get aware of it, it generally recedes, and if it doesn't, I would just tell myself to tune it out and that would be fine. I have read a lot about psychology and this is actually a classic symptom in schizophrenic literature of 'seeing places and people one has never seen before', as if there is more than one thought process going on at the same time, and one just becomes aware of it. Fortunately I had read Seth/Jane Roberts by that time, and I already had a model for the fact that time and space didn't exist and all existence was simultaneous and humans had the ability to 'tune into' their existences in more than one place. I suppose if I didn't have that framework I might have been in trouble lol. But aside from a profound amount of psi in my life--of every kind, including that as just one symptom--I was otherwise normal. Much of the psi receded later, and my life has been a little more mundane since, lol.

I have a whole other world and history of that world in many of my dreams. When I arrive in the familiar dream neighborhood, I arrive with a complete memory of that world's history, a history I cannot recall in my waking state. But there are bodies of water, neighborhoods, certain buildings that recur in my dreams.

... and speaking of dreams, I had a dream this morning that required a little psychic stuff to pull off. I am dreaming I am playing tennis against these two people, it was a man and a woman from some "foreign place". And its their turn to serve, and one of them heads back to just inside the service line in the corner and serves. So me and my doubles partner say "Hey, that is not where you serve from" and we all gather around to show them where you are supposed to serve from. We point back behind the service line and say "The rules say you need to serve from there". Then they walk us over the corner, and there is a little curve-cornered box someone has drawn with flesh colored chalk in that back corner and they pointed to it and said "No, our rules say you serve from there". And at that very instant, outside the dream, my wife rolled over and put her hand on my shoulder to lift herself up where she could see the clock by the bed. It woke me. And since we had overslept she said "No, that can't be right!" which is what I was about to say in the dream.... ;D

Yes, I've visited strange lands.  In one dream there was a  log shed made of poles. I found myself standing inside it. Outside it was snowing and there was hay or straw on the groud in the shed.  I had the feeling that I was in the 1700 or 1800's.  But there was a hole in the side of one wall and I stepped inside.  The weather was clear and it was warm.  In this world people had bubbles.  I got inside one and thought of a destination and instantly I was there.  I remember colors that were neither blue nor purple but felt similar to the two of them.  I went back through the hole several times and got people from my present life.  I kept telling my oldest son that he had to be careful of his thoughts because they would take him anywhere.

I figure this belongs in this thread.

A few nights ago, I decided I was going to see if I could catch one of the teachers at it in my dream that robert monroe spoke about when he met one in OOBE state.

I Go to sleep, in dreamland Some guy ranting on at me (I forget about what) Bang hey wait a second this is a dream, ah ha, "come on out teacher I know your about here!" *Bang* this old man who looks suspiciously like a stereotypical university professor appears out of a wall and starts lecturing me about how I am not getting enough sleep and learning properly (he was right) and that this experiment is pointless and I won't remember anyway! so now I proved that he's around here to myself I can get back on with it, and I would wake up and only remember that part. so I say ok, sure... And totally surrendered my lucidity. At that point I remember nothing apart from that.

Like Anotherdreamer wrote, I went to a different time in my last cool dream. It seemed medieval and I was outside a small castle-like structure in a courtyard full of mature trees. It felt like fall and everything had a greyish look to it. Sort of black and white, but more substantial for lack of a better word. It was peaceful and I really wanted to look around but I just lost it before I could go very far.

I've been interested in lucid dreaming since I read about it in "psychology today" when I was a teen, but I've only been able to have them in the last couple of years after learning some new techniques. Right now my problem is sustaining them for very long.

But to answer the question, most of my dreams are pretty much what you would expect in real life minus the laws of physics. I do think that if you can sustain a lucid dream for long enough, there are no limits on the images and experiences you are able to generate.

Interesting subject. I've seen a lot of weird stuff in my dreams. I have come to suspect there are a lot of different kinds of 'dreams' and mental states. I think there are the dreams in which you work out basic daily frustrations and hopes. I think there are many levels of those.

I have some places that are sort of an amalgum of memories of places and events from my past plus some new stuff that are not really accurate in space and time and are a sort of jumble of old and new. I think I may have created these but I keep coming back to them in dreams and remember past dream events in them as if I live there too at times and they are whole realities. So I think maybe we can create places in our minds that may have some level of reality, but perhaps they just don't have the complexity that this waking reality has. I think also we may cocreate with others who also characters in that reality although again, perhaps not with the complexity of this waking reality cocreation that we are currently talking in. I remember one time I was at this place of many stone pillars and buildings and fountains and then I was talking with someone who said I created that place but I never finished it so only some kind of low level simple creatures could live there.

Then I think there are places our mind travels but that our waking world consciousness cannot even begin to comprehend and so we have trouble and sort of manufacture mental equivelents of this world to help make sense of it. I think a vast majority of realities are just totally ungrokable to us from the standpoint o fthis waking world so that upon waking, we remember nothing of it or only very vague stuff.

Then I think there is a continuum of slowly more comprehenible realities and worlds that we may visit and remember more of. Those places that are real have a more complex and weird feel and ambiance to them that seems to be just not a part of me, not familiar and more flat like stuff I made up all by myself or that has a lot of me in it. These places are not made of my thoughts so they feel very different.

Then I think also in dreams we travel around in space and time here. I sometimes experience life as if I were another person on Earth that is not me. A few times, it was as if I lived years as another person, one time 4 years of college living in a dorm as a male. When I woke up, I could remember a lot but now it is mostly forgotten. I think this is what some people assume are other lives. Maybe they are or maybe I am just spying. Beats me. I don't know of any way to tell and if we are all in some way linked anyway, maybe it is a moot point in the long run. But is like PJ said, in many of those realities, memories of here are like a dream and then when I am here, those places are more like dreams. So how do I know which one is the real dream? The one that I am in at the time always feels like the real one. Maybe that also is a moot point..

You know, Blackcat, maybe what you said at the end is the crux of the matter, “I don't know of any way to tell and if we are all in some way linked anyway, maybe it is a moot point in the long run.”

I believe that there is an eternal part of us, “spirit” if you will. Since spirit is not physical, physical laws do not apply. Why can’t we (our spirits) be anywhere or any time, or even everywhere all the time. Maybe those who remember the dreams of other planets, etc, are just more in touch with their spirits, are gleaning memories from that part of themselves.

Maybe our spirits are all joined, a part of a whole. Maybe that explains most, or even all psychic experiences. For that moment in our physical time we are more in touch with our spirits, which are in touch with all other spirits, which means you are essentially in touch with all physical realities in all of what we percieve as time. Our conscious minds can not hold all of that information at the same time, so we just get bits and pieces of it from time to time.

Of course, then again, it could all just be dreams. ;D

Hi Kids,
My dreams are a whole different life. I mean they are that real. For some reason and because they are so real I have always felt as though I should not discuss the contents of those dreams. I dream constantly while I should be asleep and my dreams have been many things like instructional precognitive repetitive and just your run of the mill odd dreams that other people have. I have been to many different realities in my dreams. I can read text in my dreams and solve problems and receive information. I even learned to swim in a dream. One other world I visited was full of people who were literally and physically transforming into other forms. Everyone in this one dream location had pupils almost as big as their iris and their bodies were like putty n the sense that they could be stretched and molded. When I observed my own reflection I found that I too was one of these people and one side of my face was melting and they eyeball almost entirely exposed. The look was horrible like a monster but I understood that it was all right. That all of these people were in transition as I was and that they were all good. I have recallable dreams every night without exception. I am not really sure why I am so hesitant to discuss them. I will say this though, my dream life is as full and complete as my waking life.
