The other night, in my dream, I “flew” to St Luis Obispo, CA, a place I have never been in real life. In the dream, I was approaching a very distinctive looking building which I took to be a school. There was a large courtyard in front of it. The image was so vivid, so realistic, that when I woke up I did a Google image search (Schools St. Luis Obispo). I found it immediately. It looked exactly as it did in my dream.
Did I have an OBE while sleeping? Or did I, at some time beyond my memory, buried deep in my unconscious, see a picture or video of the place, and it just popped into my dream?
There was nothing in my life to make me think of that city. Although I’ve traveled to some very far-flung and exotic places around the world and across the US, I’ve never been to CA. (Strange, I know.) But when I think of California, that’s never a place that comes to mind. Until I Googled it, I didn’t even know exactly where it was. So, why would it be in my unconscious?
