Fascinating Legend About Dreams

Let Us Know What You Think in the Comments

Starry Night Over the Rhone, c.1888

If you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in somone else’s dream. – Legend

A popular (and old!) legend about dreams says that if you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream. Like all legends, you kind of have to wonder where it came from and what experience (if any) led someone to make this statement.

I analyzed a dream for a woman once who said that she and her husband awoke at the same time one night and, after sharing the details about the dreams the were each having, they discovered that each one had just begun dreaming about the other.  When I told her about the legend, she said she was a believer.

Have you ever had an experience that would lead you to believe the legend is true?!   Or maybe you simply believe it’s a fun legend that really doesn’t have a leg to stand on. Whichever side your on – let us know in the comments.
