Generally these dreams repeat several times over a period of weeks, months, or even years.
You may get the same dream once a week, once a month, or once a year.
Look at both the first and most recent occurrences of your dream and look for patterns. Of course, your life circumstances probably won’t be exactly the same, especially if the dream has been reoccurring for years.
If you do not act on and integrate the dream, your dream will repeat.
The main difference between reoccurring and one-off dreams is that reoccurring dreams have an important message that you are not hearing.
Have you ever felt like you were having déjà vu in your dreams?
If you have reoccurring dreams, you just might feel that way.
Reoccurring dreams teach us that if we want to have different results, we need to take different actions.
Sometimes reoccurring dreams have different variations. Maybe one of the dream characters did something different, or maybe in regards to the situation in the dream.
Knowing the exact date the dream started is not important.
What is important is the time period of your life, what was going on, and what your life was like.
It doesn’t matter how far apart the dreams are, the important piece here is that the dream repeats.
