I’ve noticed that when I dream, a lot of topics or situations come up again and again. For instance, I used to have a lot of dreams that involved very, very tall toilets. During college and even now I frequently have anxiety dreams where it’s the last day of the semester and I have to take a final for a class I’ve forgotten to go to all year. This year I’ve had an increasing amount of dreams where I’m back in high school, taking classes again (even though, even in my dream, I’ve already finished college and gotten a degree). One of the recent incarnations of my high school dream had me taking classes with grown-up versions of kids I went to elementary school with.
All my life I’ve also had relatively frequent dreams where dead pets or relatives are again alive (“he/she wasn’t really dead after all!”). A couple of weeks ago I dreamt about the family dog that passed away in 1997. Last night I dreamt that I was able to relive a day of my life and the one I was re-living was one where I had dinner with my grandfather and the rest of my family. Really, these types of dreams are kind of comforting.
Are there any topics that repeat themselves in your own dreams?
