What dream setting is most common for you?
PostPosted: Wed 20 May, 2009  Reply with quote

The house I lived in from 6th grade to the end of highschool is the setting for pretty much all the dreams that involve a place where I lived. There have been some re-occuring dreams that occured in the place we lived previously but it has been probably 20 years or more since I had a dream take place there (I am 44 years old).

I expect that although that house as a dream setting is the most common in my dreams, it accounts for a very small percentage overall. Most of my dreams seem to occur in different places and not associated with locations from waking life.

I've had dreams at my grandparents' house so many times that it has become a dream sign and I'm always sure to get lucid there. Another common location is my lucid dream world. It doesn't exist in RL so it's also a dreamsign. I dream of my grandparents' house the most though. Used to dream of my highschool a lot too, but not anymore.

While it's random, the most often places are either my home and neighbourhood, or a holiday cottage that I've been going to since I was born.

There are four most common places in my dreams :

- My grandparent's farm where I spent long time when I was young. Usually in my dreams I try to defend it against shady property developers.devil

- Planes but they never take off. sadblauw

- Sea - I walk in front of the ocean. I often tried to dive in but never succeeded.

- I love Japan and go to Kyôto every year, but my japanese dreams take place in Tôkyô (maybe because I'm a little afraid of this futurist city).

My dreams are usually a variation of my house, or my school or some place familiar. Sometimes it's a school bus.
Theres always something different about it... Like a whole swamp in my backyard, or an apple tree on top of my house or something or my school with over 100 floors. Stuff like that.

I usually get a lot of repeated dream settings. Mostly, it's my house or the apartment I used to live in, or some strange mix of both. There's also college and my old school, and just like the house/apartment, they seem to get mixed quite often.

Other repeating settings include shopping malls and arcades.

For me it's almost always my old house that I lived in for 18 years with my family. If not it is some random location I've never been to before.

The recurring settings that I remember most are my school, my house, houses I used to live in, and a summer camp that I go to. I very rarely dream about my neighborhood outside of my house, but I did last night, which I find odd.

Being a little more general with my dream location, I find that most occur within structures. In fact a theme that has occured multiple times is when I am unable to leave the place I am in (room, house, etc).

I do find it interesting that some people do not have re-occuring locations in dreams. Some kind of basic dream category?

I follow the same basic trend as most of the posts suggest; most of my dreams are set in some form of my house, my school (mostly my current one, but occasionally my old middle school), or my church. The dreamscapes usually aren't too true to life, though -- usually, my school seems a lot bigger and more complex, almost like some sort of prison or something . When they're not set in someplace familiar, I'm usually running around in some sort of run-down urban area. I'm not sure what that means.

I share johnr's curiosity... why do some people not have recurring dream locations? Is there any research on that?
