Who are the other people in dreams??
Over the last 6 months or so, maybe a bit longer I've been having some strange dreams. They aren't that unusual; normal stuff like going places, seeing and talking to people, etc. I only remember bits and pieces most of the time.
The wierd part is, more and more I'm talking to people in my dreams who are perfect strangers, yet i fell as though i have known them for a thousand years. I went years without dreaming much at all for the most part, or at least not remembering it. At that period of my life, I was relatively happy with my life, my marriage, kids, work etc. Since that time, I have seperated from my wife and my relationship with my oldest son has been seriously damaged, even though he and I were always the closest before this situation went down. This isn't recent either, because we split 5 1/2 years ago
I really don't want to talk about the seperation/divorce, I just wanted to point out that this was the time I started to dream more and more, and It's driving me crazy that I "know" these people, even though I don't know who they are. When i say know, I mean I really feel like their some old, old friends, even though I have never met them in this life.
I also find myself in places that I'm familiar with in these types of dreams, as though I have lived there , or been there before. It's the same exact feeling as the 'knowing".
Any thoughts, and has anyone else experienced this sort of thing, or am I finally cracking up??
Are these memories possibly from some past incarnation or something?? I've never though much about that sort of thing personally, even though I've always found it fascinating to read about, but this has made me question that as a possible explanation.
Also, are they trying to tell me something?? Nothing I'm hearing or seeing in the dreams seem to be very profound, and frankly, I can't even remember what's said 99% of the time; I just KNOW the people and places, even though their faces are completely unfamiliar.
One of the places in a dream was actually pretty far back in some woods near where i live. it was a river (which i live near), but it was laid out differently, as it may have looked a few hundred years ago (the river changes every year to some extent due to erosion and other things), and in that particular dream, there were what appeared to be some native American or tribal society type of people, hanging around on some rocks around the river, with some kids swimming and playing, while the adults seemed busy doing simple chores, but everyone seemd really happy and relaxed in their surroundings. it actually looked like a life I could be comfortable living if that makes any sense.
This has been bugging me a bit, so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Erin thats a really cool story about Nap Town, cant say I've been there but I have a different tale to tell. Over the years I have been talking to many people in dreams and they seem to correspond to a few different places. The first is a city that seems to be in a purpetual golden dawn where inhabitants
work and play much like we do but seem much happier, another that I visited during a very powerfull lucid dream is prohibited to me, they told me that I wasn't allowed back, it is a place of high technology and folded realities inhabited by very attractive people who look to be having a great time. But the one that disturbs me is where I see all my old friends who have died in bad circumstances. The place looks like a dark and bombed out city.They are waiting for something they havn't told me what, they will talk but not touch there is no shaking of hands and it seems that a connection with the living is a taboo
which none of them will break, they all obey these laws without exception and that includes the other realities. I don't really know why they are there but I have my suspicions. Anybody else out there with similar stuff?:

Heh you ask an interesting question Bertrade & I greatly enjoyed your naptown blog Erin. That's really interesting though I have no similar kinda place except there's a place I visit when I "imagine" called Pigland but hmm...
I don't want to sound too crazy so I'll shut my yapper now
In terms of dreams though when I was a child & I had a rough childhood.. well.. I had one dream that really stood out big time. & I think now that I had it because at the time I was feeling so uncomfortable & I felt sort of unloved & well.. in this dream I was with another family I didn't recognize but they were my family. & we were on our way to visit this really nice place & we were all excited. It kind of looked like Atlantis or something because there were so many trees & plants around & everything was prettier than the prettiest place I can imagine here because the sky was super blue & there were some fuzzy white clouds & the world was very green & lush. Well.. we got to our destination (on foot) & I saw this gigantic Cylindrical glass looking thing (huge really) & it had stairs going up the side & inside it was a ton of water & a floating island that was alive. There were fish & dolphins inside the cylinder swimming around & next thing I knew we were up the stairs & having a picnic there. The energy of that place..well.. it was beyond what I could imagine. Everything was so beautiful & serene & peaceful (which was totally opposite to my home life hehe) & it was a great comfort for me. Maybe Bertrand you are going back to a time in your 'life' when life was comforting & peaceful for you since right now you are going through a rough patch.
I haven't had those kinds of dreams as much now but.. I think that dream was either an alternate reality I had lived in before or.. a past life obviously not on Earth or ..gosh. who knows. I have no clue but I do know I really liked visiting there.

In my dream, this strange guy dressed in what looked like what the Pope wears (not the ornate vestments, but the plain, white robe thing and the little skull cap thing) was in our neighborhood, and was trying to coax me and my best friend to come into a garage, which was owned by my dad's brother, who lived next door.
In my dream, I had a bad feeling about going in there. It was just my best friend and I (we were born two months apart and were like brothers), and this guy was trying to coax us in. I just somehow knew the guy was either going to kill us, or take us away to somewhere that we could never return from. He was talking very kindly, like a child predator may do to lure a child.
I tried to talk my friend into running away, I was beging him to run, but he trusted the guy in spite of my efforts, and walked into the garage, and the guy shut the door. I KNEW I would never see him again at that point, and got scared. The guy came out and, approached me, and I started to run.
I ran as fast as I could and got away, even though i slipped and fell a few times while running, but I knew I would never see my friend again. I was about 6-7 years old when I had this dream, and it happened at least 6 or 7 times over a year or so, as best as I can remeber.
Fast forward to the time I was 11. One day, my cousin came to the door and asked me to come out and play. Something in my gut told me not to go with him. He was always up to no good, even when we were that young, so I told him no. He started criticizing and making fun of me (typical behavior for him), and tried to convince me to go with him, but I refused, shut the door in his face, and that was that.
About a half hour later, i heard sirens, then the phone rang a few minutes later. As it turned out, my cousin (who was 12 at the time) had sneaked a.22 pistol from his dad's drawer. He walked across the field behind his house, and my best friend (from the dream, who I begged to stay away from the bad guy) happened to be riding his bike home along a road that ran alongside the field where my cousin was. The sirens were from an ambulance someone had called, because my cousin had shot and killed my best friend. I don't know why; he just did, and he never even got in any trouble for it. He said it was an accident, but I still don't believe it was to this day. It happened on Good Friday at 3:00 PM too; wierd.
When I heard the news, naturally I was shocked, sad beyond anything I had ever experienced, and angry at my cousin. I wanted him to be dead instead of my best friend. After thinking about it, I realized that it could just as easily have been me, because he was trying really hard to get me to come outside earlier.
Later I remembered that damn dream, where my best firend was coaxed to his own death, and went willingly, trusting his killer. I found out later that my cousin had stopped my friend in a very friendly and casual way, my friend suspected nothing, and then my cousin pulled that gun, laid it on his lip and shot him straight up the nose.
I have always thought that that dream was a message/premonition that my firend was going to be gone forever, and as it turned out, he was. It was worse than losing a brother.

i did have longer dreams aswell.
sometimes a week in one night.
my longest dream lasted 200 years in one night.
but yes other people inside your dreams are sometimes fragments of yourself or your emotions, so emotion inside you with a personality of it`s own, but only one emotion, namely the emotion they are.
and that can be creepy or very pleasant.
depends on what emotion it is and the state of that emotion.
i found that out a couple of times that my joy was in my lucid-like dream state, and i conversed with him a long time, and you learn a lot about your own emotions.
it`s very weird, but so valuable to yourself, you learn to appreciate yourself more and how your emotions work.
