When your marriage bed is a launch pad

posted by Robert Moss

I was asked the question, “What does it mean when my hubby and I share the same dreams?”

The question became more interesting when the dreamer added, “We dream we can jump and each time we stay up in the air a little bit longer. Finally we can just jump and float forever or fly.”

What excellent night adventures this couple is sharing, while their bodies lie dormant in the bed! Once you have woken up to the fact that flying is a natural human ability in dreaming, and that you can travel with a chosen partner, your itinerary is limited only by your imagination. You can vacation on Bali, dine at the Tour d’Argent in Paris, visit palaces and pleasure houses in the astral realm of Luna, explore a past life you may have shared, or go to places of healing and initiation in the imaginal realm.

The strange thing is not that we remember mutual interactive dreams, but that we don’t do so more often. Dreaming is a social activity, and it’s natural to dream of and with other people, especially those closely linked to us.

There is a chapter on shared dreaming in my new book Active Dreaming which suggests some fun games for consenting partners to play.

    Dear Robert,
    This reality of dreaming as a social activity is becoming a corner stone for my work with understanding how to shift the body out of defensive responses and hold with a physiological system that supports a state of calmness. This has been the most difficult for me as an active dreamer. I believe when I first started active dream work, coming into acceptance of this took me from immobiliztion responses (physiology = unmylented vagal nerve mode, which can cause dissociative states) to a practice of calmness (physiology = mylenated vagal, feeding and washing neural pathways of health, growth and restoration.) I dream of helping the autistic community using re entry (into a dream, single word/image or story) and tracking with in a safe community. I suppose my next step is to allow a group to help track for me as I open to one of my dreams. I feel a little reversed in that it has been quicker for me to shift and allow dream guides to help, but trusting people who are in close physical space as I am in this dreaming state was and still is a work in progress. I think maybe there’s something about confusion that can immobilize me? I believe your techniques have helped me find recognition and shift in and out of different modes of perception and sensing without confusion. All this takes me back to what I have learned as a caregiver and care receiver for those on the spectrum.
    One BIGGY for me is, I can even feel the WOW without going into excitement and/or chaos now. There is so much beauty in the NOW to WOW about!

    Smooth delicious travels to you Robert

The best way to understand a dream
The best way to grasp the meaning of a dream, and to determine what action the dream requires, is to go back inside the dream and recover more of the story.
