Recurring Dreams

return to articles

A recurring dream is a dream that occurs on more than one occasion with similar content. No one knows for sure why this happens, but a recurring dream may be portraying a topic that is very prominent or important in the subconscious mind of the dreamer, such as:

  • A past traumatic event
  • A matter of urgency
  • An important real or imagined event
  • A fear

Consider which aspects of the dream are repeated, including repetition of a general theme even if the dream events are not exactly the same. Chances are that you will see a parallel between the repeated theme and your real life. Your intuition may then tell you the reason behind your dream recurrence.
