During my adult life and in particular recently, I have experienced de javu. I have had flashbacks to vivid dreams that I had as a child.
Every place that I have worked (4) was a dream that I had as a child. People at my place of work, the buildings, the routes and means of transport to get to work and experiences that I have since encountered were in my dreams as a child.
Every home that I have lived in (4) was the same as the houses that I visited in my dreams as a child.
Decisions that I made and feelings that I experienced in my dreams I have subsequently experienced.
These flashback are becoming more frequent in the last six months.
I had a difficult childhood and was physically abused by my family and the environment was stressful for me. I would say that my life now is also stressful, with work and family life and I'm not sure if the stress is a trigger for theses flashbacks.
The flashbacks themselves occur at all times of the day when I'm awake and often I drift into a very deep sleep and wake up with a vivid recall of the dream that I have had.
I was hoping to get some help on interpreting these dreams and experiences and maybe be able to control them.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
