But if you and a friend share a dream, it’s ultimately indicative of an emotional closeness. You two operate on the same wavelength — literally — and are essentially haunting one another’s subconscious. You’re connected through more than just shared experiences and similar coping mechanisms.
The most commonly reported type of mutual dream is known as a meshing dream – two people’s different dreams which share certain elements. For instance, you and your partner may both watch an episode of Love Island together and then both of you dream about being stranded together on an island.
Consistent with the effect of emotional closeness on shared dreams, we also have plenty of well-documented cases of twins sharing the same dream. The least well-documented cases involve complete strangers sharing the same dream.
Research shows that about 15% of dreams are shared – mainly with romantic partners, friends and relatives. And if you don’t currently share your dreams, you might want to start thinking about it, as research also suggests that it can help to improve relationship intimacy.
They Answered : NPR. Scientists Talked To People In Their Dreams. They Answered Scientists have found that two-way communication is possible with someone who is asleep and dreaming. Specifically, lucid dreaming — dreaming while being aware you’re dreaming.
The framework for this exploratory case study is a concept called “collective dreaming”, which is a participatory space where everyday people can convene to imagine and build the worlds that they would like to live in. Collective dreaming is an aspirational concept that does not yet exist.
A meeting dream is the true meaning of mutual dreaming, where two or more people meet up and communicate inside the dream world.
And because dreams are the product of our own subconscious thoughts and experiences, that means that when we dream about someone, it is not because they are thinking about us, but rather because we are subconsciously thinking about them.
“Each dream someone has of you has many layers and can mean many different things, but one thing it can mean that this person is processing what they subconsciously feel about you and your relationship to each other,” mystical practitioner MaKayla McRae tells Bustle.
These repetitive dreams are called recurring dreams. Believe it or not it is extremely common. Recurrent dreams occur between 60 percent and 75 percent of adults and more often in women than men.
What Are Lucid Dreams? Lucid dreams are when you know that you’re dreaming while you’re asleep. You’re aware that the events flashing through your brain aren’t really happening. But the dream feels vivid and real. You may even be able to control how the action unfolds, as if you’re directing a movie in your sleep.
But talking about dreams, particularly when you first wake up, can make them easier to remember. It’s those initial moments as you’re waking up where the dream still feels accessible, lingering in the synapses waiting to be solidified into your conscious mind. Talking about your dreams—or writing them down—helps.

“In Jungian psychology, every person in a dream represents some aspect of the dreamer,” Dr. Manly tells Bustle. “The person who ‘shows up’ is generally symbolic of some aspect of the dreamer’s self; other people are simply conjured up by the psyche to offer a symbolic representation of a certain theme or issue.”
The collective consciousness informs our sense of belonging and identity, and our behavior. Founding sociologist Émile Durkheim developed this concept to explain how unique individuals are bound together into collective units like social groups and societies.
The collective conscience is “the totality of beliefs and sentiments common to average citizens of the same society” (Durkheim  1964). As a nonmaterial social fact, the collective conscience is external to and coercive over individuals.
“Since dreams are thought to primarily occur during REM sleep, the sleep stage when the MCH cells turn on, activation of these cells may prevent the content of a dream from being stored in the hippocampus – consequently, the dream is quickly forgotten.”
The good news is that dreaming about a crush represents doors of possibility opening up in your life, says Arzt. “You may be excited about the idea of being with your crush, but it can also mean you’re excited about anything else that lies ahead,” she says. “Dreams can shed insight into your desires.
The results indicate that although pain is rare in dreams, it is nevertheless compatible with the representational code of dreaming. Further, the association of pain with dream content may implicate brainstem and limbic centers in the regulation of painful stimuli during REM sleep.
