Dreaming Within A Dream

Is it possible to dream that you are dreaming? And if so, what does it mean? Recently I experienced a very unusual and interesting nighttime dream. Although my dream itself was nothing unusual, it did offer me a new and potentially educational scenario and inner learning potential.

Without going into unnecessary detail, my “weird” dream began with me asleep. As I was sleeping, I became aware that I also was dreaming that a couple of acquaintances had accidentally blown themselves up resulting in the death of one of them. As my dream progressed, I increasingly became aware of my “dream-within a dream”, and attempted to prevent the activity and possible death of my friend. To make a long story short, I never succeeded in this attempt, and my”dream-within a dream” ended up actually occurring.

So what, you might ask? Is this psychic knowledge? Is this a warning? Or is this truly “nonsense”. For me, none of these potential meanings resonated. But this dream turned out to be truly significant and educational. Dreaming is such a subjective and personal phenomenon, that this dream for me proved to be a means of both philosophical and spiritual insight, resulting in a much improved knowledge of my own personal beliefs about free will and control/influence of significant others, EVEN IF I MIGHT KNOW BETTER! My “dream-within a dream” was actually was actually teaching me that I have no moral right to enforce my beliefs and/or will on anybody but myself…

And I learned this valuable lesson not from any formal course, lesson, or expert, but simply from dreaming a “dream-within a dream” paying attention, and acting upon my new-found inner knowledge! Every time you remember a dream, regardless of how small,silly, or seemingly insignificant the dream might appear, the potential is also there for new, true and deep personal insight and growth.

  1. when I have a dream within a dream I see myself fall asleep, never in a bed it`s always outside. I sleep, and then dream, when I wake up everything that happens in my dream comes true. I never try to change it I just watch it all play out. Is this the same thing?

  2. I just had a very interesting dream within a dream where I knew that I was dreaming. I even one of the people in my dream about the symbol I was looking at. I ask her if they were still real even though I was dreaming. She said yes. I kept seeing city names on a map and those names are the city and state that live in now and the city that I just moved from in another state. We were also flying without an airplane. I remember there being two different teams and we were challenging each other while we flew through these different states. We used our bodies to fly. I remember being close to these group of people and the interaction was all very good.
