Dream Within A Dream
After watching the recent movie that was released; Inception, it reminded me of a dream I once had. The movie is based around the theory of a dream within a dream within a dream. It got me thinking about my dream, I was questioning it, was it a dream within a dream or a dream within a dream within a dream?! The mind boggles!
I decided it was a dream within a dream I had; two out of three ain’t bad! I remember all of it in detail to this day, this was it:
I fell asleep in reality and dreamed that I walked into a bedroom; no-one else was present at that time. There was a double bed inviting me to join it so I happily agreed and lay down on the bed and fell asleep. Then I started to have another dream which I was fully present in. I was at the bottom of the ocean with others, people I knew and recognised in my dream world. We weren’t swimming at all, just walking at the bottom of the sea bed. We could breathe just fine and we were trying to find the path to the end of this marathon we were walking; only became apparent then, that we were in a marathon, not a race. There were fish and sharks everywhere which came close but did not attack us. I saw the pathway and told the others to follow me, which they did.
We walked until we came to the surface which brought us out to a beach where many people were waiting at a finish line. We crossed the finish line and received medals and hugs from the people waiting, all very happy. Then I woke up on the double bed again but this time all the people who were on the sea bed with me were sat around me on this bed. They sat there looking at me waiting for me to say something. I excitedly told them that they had been with me in the dream and told them about the marathon and how we had finished and got medals. They were excited to hear me tell them this and seemed very pleased about the medals.
Then I woke up for real. That has been the only dream I can recall of having a dream within a dream.
Would love to hear if anyone else has had this type of dream?
