Ever happen to you to dream of a place you know well, a street in your town or even your own house, but things are not quite like they should be: there’s an extra door, or a turn you don’t remember, and if you take the turn around that corner, you enter uncharted territory. Everything seems perfectly real, but even in your dream you know there’s something not quite right about this place. And when you wake up and walk in the real place, the memory of the dream is so vivid, that you find yourself looking for that turn that never was, but which you KNOW, it should be there, if you could only find it again..
There is a cave opening from the basement of my house, but nobody knows it but me.
Thank you for that wonderful submission that explores the familiar yet strange nature of dreams. Often the locations of our dreams are built from places in our waking lives, but then become altered by our subconscious. These slight obscurities can act as great triggers for having a lucid dream. Sometimes it’s not the strangest thing that brings upon a lucid dream, but something familiar that is just slightly off.
