Revisiting Familiar Places in Dreams

Last night in my dream I visited a neighborhood and I realize in my dream that I had visited this place in a previous dream I had had long ago. Back then I had visited an Indian couple who resided in a Bungalow.  This time I visited an elderly white couple that lived two houses down. In my dream I wondered about the whereabouts of the Indian couple (were they still here, had they moved, did they pass away or were they out of town were the questions that crossed my mind).  The neighborhood was very green and had very huge trees and fruit trees laden heavy with papaya and bananas and I felt a strong sense of familiarity. I have never seen this neighborhood in the real physical world, but in my dream this was my second time.

I wonder if this has something to do with a previous life time. Maybe I lived there in the past. Maybe I was the Indian woman who resided in the bungalow.  I don’t know.  I just find this quite fascinating.

Have you ever experienced similar dreams which gave you a sense of familiarity?

    Yachna, I’ve felt that sense of familiarity for sure. Your post made me wonder: in the sense of familiarity, did you remember the place with a child’s sense, or that of a grown woman?

    Good question Mike. I felt grown up in my dream when I remembered the place.

    Some time I do feel we see the same type of dream again and again. But can never recall what is the exact similarity. People and things and. Even places are easy to recall if we have seen them but unfamiliar place I don’t know! Never paid that much attention either.
