Yeah, i've had that deja vu feeling several times. The first time I ever had a clairvoyant dream, my family was about to leave for a vacation in Hawaii. I dreamed of a Japanese bookstore with a large wall of manga, and after a week in Hawaii was disappointed that I hadn't seen one. Then our plane had engine trouble, and we had to spend an extra day in Honolulu... there was a mall next to our hotel, and a Japanese bookstore exactly like the one in my dream.

That's an interesting suggestion I hadn't considered, looking into clairvoyancy. I"ll check it out, thanks :D

That seems to be a really common experience, but so cool when it happens!  I remember once dreaming about remodeling my house and finding a secret room.   That didn't happen literally, but when I got up the next day I had a sudden impulse to visit a restaurant I had never been to before---and the restaurant dining area *was* the room from my dream.  I'm a little annoyed that I don't remember what the fortune cookie I got that day said, but I recall it felt very relevant and was good advice for me at the time.

From what I understand dream work can be one method of "hedge riding" and I'd like to figure out the link I seem to be missing between doing it randomly and doing it consciously.
It took me years of practice to manage conscious spirit travel (and I wouldn't say I'm managing it perfectly), but I didn't really train myself much, just tried it again and again (and doing lots of other stuff in between), so there might be a quicker way to learn this ;)

There are also some books frequently recommended to learn this, I remember that we once discussed Paxson's "Trance-Portation" here on TC, I also read various books on witchcraft and neo-shamanism and there were some suggestions here and there that helped me. I found Starhawk's "Twelve Wild Swans" was an excelent starting point for me (it has a lot about work with meditation/journeying/imagination, but is also an excellent beginner's guide for witchcraft).

I feel like I have to jump into this old thread because you all are talking about LOCATIONS in your dreams, and this matches my experience. The most memorable and meaningful aspect of my dreams has always been locations. Transit infrastructure like trains and ferries, visiting countries like Mexico and China, College campuses, and so on. You don't read much about location when looking up dream meanings and symbols, yet here we are, a group attuned to locations. It's nice to see that others are like me in this way.

I also want to bring up a seemingly common interpretation of dreams that hasn't been mentioned here. If you read about astral and out of body projection, you will see the assertion that the place we go in dreams is the Astral Plane. Characteristics of the Astral plane are:

1. It is created by your subconscious, but it is ALSO created by OTHERS' subconsciouses. This results in encountering things that hold a lot of emotional weight, but that you don't necessarily consciously think about. Further, you might visit a version of your college that other people have been investing emotional energy in- you might see structures that others have been planning and dreaming.

2. It is influenced by, and mapped to, waking space and time, but is malleable. This has the result that you will see places that are familiar-but-strange, as mentioned above regarding the campus.

3. Travel is at the speed of thought.

4. You can encounter other traveling spirits/entities, both human and nonhuman.

These all come from my reading, unfortunately I am still not a successful lucid dreamer or astral/OBE projector.

Curious if these points are a new and helpful perspective for anyone!?

Yes this actually does explain a few things - I very often dream of a place and I know without a doubt that it's the local shop, or it's my old school or whatever, even though it bears almost no resemblance whatever to the actual architecture, decor etc etc of the actual place in this reality.  That is very common for me.  Interesting.
