A Mysterious Story of how my Twin Sister and I Shared the Same Dream at the Same Time.
My Twin Sister and I
Mysterious Shared Dream Between Twin Sister's
Mom tucked us into bed like she did every night. "Sleep tight Linda and Laura; don't let the bed bugs bite." This particular night, the five year old twin sisters would enter a world that was well beyond sleeping and dreaming, and they would enter it together. How could this be? Laura and I had shared a similar dream before this encounter, but this would be the first time we would have the same dream, simultaneously. Later that evening as mother laid in bed next door to us, she began hearing noises and whispers she couldn't place. After about fifteen minutes of trying to convince herself the night noises would eventually calm, she could no longer ignore the goings on outside her room. She nervously walked to our bedroom and opened the door. What mom witnessed that night was something she never imagined possible. She stood in our doorway and became an onlooker into a mystical journey of a paranormal twin episode.
Laura and I were both intensely searching for something we had lost. Laura was looking under her bed and I was looking under mine. What had we lost? How could we both be having the same dream simultaneously? Mom had seen some inexplicable experiences between Laura and I due to our uncanny connection, but even this rattled her. After quietly observing Laura and I babble with one another as we searched for some unknown, lost item, she eventually knew it was time to end our evening escapade. She softly murmured, "I found it, go back to bed now." Like nothing out of the ordinary happened, we both stopped the incomprehensible chatter and curious searching and went back to bed. Till this day, we still wonder what it was we lost and were so determined to find. I guess we'll never know...Or will we?
True Stories of Twins having Same Dream
In an article titled 'Twin Dreams' written by Patrick McNamara (Ph.D.) in Psychology Today, dream phenomena is not unusual for twins. If you speak to virtually any pair of twins about this sort of thing, they will often recount similarly amazing stories. The article written on June 13, 2011, describes true stories of twins having the same dream on different nights; and some twins having the same dream at the same time. Although there hasn't been a lot of research on this subject, it is definitely a fascinating topic that merits more study.
Here are 2 accounts of twins having the same dream:
"We were walking through this primeval forest. Giant pterodactyls scooped Rick and me up; we were screaming. I could see Rick in the jaws of the pterodactyl. Then I looked over at Rick at the breakfast table and he had a pale look on his face. He had had that same dream a couple of nights ago..."(Kohl, 2001; pps 132-133). "On this particular night I fell asleep in my older sister's bed and Sarah fell asleep in my mom's bed downstairs. When my older sister, Carrie got home, I woke up to find her standing over me and laughing. She told me that I was dreaming, but I was actually in that state between sleep and consciousness. I was frantically looking for the ‘papers' that I needed. While I was laughing with her I still knew the importance of finding those papers. When mom woke Sarah up that same night she had been having the exact same dream, and they encountered exactly the same experience with the ‘papers' (Kohl, 2001; pps 134-135).
Here are two accounts of exactly the same dream occurring in two different people-though they happen to be twins. In one case the dream occurred to the two persons on the same night and we have some sort of objective testimony as to the content of that dream: it was about frantically looking for important ‘papers'. Apparently the two dreamers (who were in different rooms) were talking in their sleep about the need to find important papers. Two different people verified that that is what the dreamers were sleep-talking about.
These kinds of dream phenomena are not unusual for twins. Source: Psychology Today
