I have had these dreams commonly over the years, mostly they are of the late morning type where you are just relaxing in bed, semi-awake, and start to seamlessly drift off again into the dream world. I had another this morning, and it prompted me to ask a question to myself…
“Why are so many of my dreams in my grandparents house?”
And when I say grandparents house, its never, ever like the physical version of it. Its always the grand, ever changing dream version of it, but it is intuitively known to be my grandparents home. While in the dream, nothing is amiss, and I know how to get around it, and even have memories of the place that doesnt exist in the physical world (except ever so superficially).
Things dreams almost always involve me being lethargic and not really being able, nor wanting, to move, because Im tired and actively trying to get some rest. I am always with other people, all known to be family, but almost never are they identifiable by name or physical identity, only by essence as “family”, and some, quite distant to the point of me not feeling very close to them at all. The exception to this is my sister, mother, my mothers sister, and my beloved cat. The grandparents are also on my mothers side, but they themselves do not ever seem to be present.
While I visited my grandparents in the past, and have some good memories, most of them are boring. The house was simple in a smallish town in PA, and there was never much to do. In the dreams though, this house is always filled with people, many I cannot name and do not know other than they are somehow related to me.
Funny enough, many of us are actually trying to sleep and get some rest, and are sleeping just anywhere; up against walls, on the floor, in chairs, etc. Sometimes there is light activity, and sometimes people are gently talking to one another.
I had an idea just today, that perhaps this was some ancestral dream/astral home or something for my mothers side of the family. I honestly dont know what else to make of it. Its never unpleasant, nor is it exciting. But it is peaceful without being stagnant, with seemingly many groggy people like me when I am there.
This topic isnt something Ive ever researched or heard about, so Im just throwing this out into the internet ether to see if anyone else can connect with such a concept!
Anyone else ever experience this?
