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.
