What Is The Meaning of Shared Dreams With Others?
Shared Dreams Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE!

Don't ever think you're weird because you've had the same dream as someone else. About 1 in 1,000 people report the startling fact that they had a shared dream. The meaning of your dreams may differ from another person. There are so many types of dreams and the true meaning of dreams is highly subjective.


The phenomenon called “shared dreaming” is a startling experience, particularly if you've never experienced one before. One person begins to recount the sleep dream and the other excitedly interrupts the story. Identical dreaming most often occurs with spouses, siblings, close friends, parents, and children. These identical occurrences often happen the same night.

Mutual dreaming is also a type of shared dreaming. Mutual dreaming involves group activities. More than two people have a challenge that is overcome in a dream state. The following morning, each remembers obstacles involved and their joint efforts for removing them. Snoozing while solving your problems is a great way to get into the unconscious—just by going to sleep.


Empathetic feelings must be a key factor in a shared dream. A close connection physically and spiritually is a dynamic needed for such a phenomenon, although I'm sure complete strangers with no personal history at all might have the same quirky occurrence.


I have encountered shared dreaming several times. It's always been with someone I had an empathetic relationship with. My boyfriend Frank and I had the identical dream. He was concerned for his children, as I was about mine. In our dream, we both were struggling to get to all the children across a body of water. They were in a sinking boat, needing to be rescued. We had no boat so we started to swim. Frantically, we felt we wouldn't reach them and they would all drown.


The emotional component of this dream was obvious. We were losing our children in real life through divorce and both felt helpless to save them. In all sleep dreams, water symbolizes emotion. The meaning of dreams with water is powerful. Frank and I were amazed when we talked about our shared dream. We felt as though our spiritual connection and emotional connection was deeper.


I think we’re on a threshold of something big with shared dreams. Now more than ever, the exploration into our dream state is being delved into and studied. I think our dreams have a holographic element. We're actually on another frequency and dimension. Whatever you experience—whether it’s mutual, shared, or identical dreaming—know that it's not weird, it's wonderful.

I am sure that some dreams are collections of you have, thoughts you have when your awake. You can easily attribute dreams to feelings, experiences and something as small as passing someone of the street. The dreams I am interested in are the ones you cannot explain. For example, my eldest brother stayed with me for a month, he is fighting his temptations to use drugs. I had a dream about him and a very tall Aboriginal person. This tall person slapped my brother across the face almost like berating him. In my dream, I was the observer, I was afraid how my brother would react because he has been known to get in a fight or two. But, to my bewilderment (in my dream) he put his head down and walked away - looking ashamed. In the morning, the dream was so vivid I began to tell the brother who was in the dream and he stopped me and began to tell me about the Aboriginal guy, the tallness and some other things. It was beyond weird. He then told me he was walking to my place the night before and had an urge to "use" he asked this Aboriginal guy whom he never knew about "hooking him up." The guy told him to "stay away from that"s*#t" because it will kill you." I knew nothing of this happening. I had the dream, and for my brother it was a reality thing. We came to the conclusion that it was his spirit guide who slapped him, berated him. I was just the messenger because I am open and the spirit knew I would share the dream with my brother. Altho my bro said they should not have used me to convey the lesson. I didn't mind tho!

thank you Green for your comment. :) My sister and I were very close back then. The dream we shared was not the only "connections" we had either but it was the most powerful one and vividly remembered. I have never had a shared dream before that (that I am aware of, we do not remember everyone of our dreams) and I have never had one since. In my instance, it may not have been a dream only, my sister and I may have taken an astral time trip just a little way into our future considering that the shelter became reality under my Dad's building it. and we did not know what was in his mind as to how he would build it.

Laurie, that is so wonderful. I guess the dream shows how close you and your sister are. I have never had a shared dream before and I find it really amazing that some people do. Like I stated before, I'm not really close to anyone so I guess I wouldn't really be having them.

My sister and I used to share a bed. One day when we woke and went out to do our morning chore of gathering enough wood for my Mom for the day, we both stopped and stared at the woodpile area in shock. It was the same as it was yesterday but we had both shared the same dream that we had built the lean-to shelter to keep the wood dry. My Dad talked of building it but it was not even started yet. It took awhile for us to figure out what was going on but we each drew a picture in the dirt of how the shelter looked in our dreams, well away from each other so we couldn't see what the other drew. It was the same. When the shelter did get built that fall, it was how we both had seen it.

I agree that dreams do give you a glimpse of your inner self. Sometimes you might think that you forgive someone for something they have done to you but yet you have a dream where you are having a fight with them and telling them how much you hate them for what they have done to you.. happens to me.

Interpretation of dreams is also a part of contemporary pop and new age culture. Edgar Cayce claimed that through dreaming, people are given access to their spirit, and further, that all possible questions could be answered from the inner consciousness given the proper awareness [7] A shamanistic model of dream work gained some popularity in the consciousness movement through the work of two dream researchers and authors, Ariadne Green and Stanley Krippner

To these might be added 'secondary elaboration' -- the outcome of the dreamer's natural tendency to make some sort of 'sense' or 'story' out of the various elements of the manifest content as recollected. (Freud, in fact, was wont to stress that it was not merely futile but actually misleading to attempt to 'explain' one part of the manifest content with reference to another part as if the manifest dream somehow constituted some unified or coherent conception).

I don't really think that shared dreams exist, I'm far from a skeptic, but there are some things that just make me say "Nope.". They might have similar dreams if they're in the same situation or thinking about the same things.

I have had the same dream as my mother. But she had her dream when she was pregnant with me. I had the dream when I was 14 or 15 years old. The only difference in the dreams were, the dream happened to my mother and for me I watched what happened to my mother by hiding in a bush. Other than that they were the same.

Wow! That is interesting. I have never heard of shared dreams and didn't know it could happen. I would really love to experience something like that. But I don't think there is anyone that I am very close to apart from my daughter.... maybe my sister.
