My Boyfriend's Sub Conscious

by Pickwick

A few weeks ago my boyfriend came over my house to stay for the day. At one point he fell asleep and I was drifting off as well. When I woke up, I just started talking to him about things, nothing incredibly important, and then he spoke back!

He was still sound asleep and he started having a full conversation with me. I know I must sound crazy, but the more he spoke, the more I realised he was speaking in third person, like 'Olly didn't like that'.

When I asked him why he said that Olly wasn't there at the moment, that I was talking to 'blue'. He explained that blue was the mind and Olly the body. And the more I spoke, the more I became convinced I was talking to his sub conscious.

I even recorded some of it to prove I wasn't crazy, but that's just insane! Can someone talk to their sub conscious whilst asleep? I've searched everywhere and couldn't find anything :S but there you go. True story.

Is it real talk or dream talk? NEW
by: Hawkmoon

You should consider this phenomenon as speaking to other man than your boyfriend, or at best, as speaking to your boyfriend in different stage of his life. If you get the chance, you can try to ask questions about how long that person knows your boyfriend, that could give you some clue. In any case it should not be considered an issue. Actually this phenomenon is not as rare, there is one person that becomes very witty and makes money from selling his subconsciuos one-liners. Google for sleep talking man.

A night mare that never remembered NEW
by: Anonymous

I went to sleep first before my husband and son and I woke up at night around 10:45 and I couldn't see my them beside me. I asked the other person in the house and he told me they went out to our other house. I was unhappy because they never told me about their going.I texted him that I am not happy at what he did. In the morning about 5:30, I woke up and got myself ready for work. My husband rang me up in the morning around 6:30am and turned off my phone not to anwswer him until I already in my office around 9:30 I opened my my phone and I saw my husband's text messages that he was not happy about what I did last night. I answered him by saying; what did I do? He then told me that I gave a big farted last night and that everyone in the house heard it and it was a big same for him. I told him that I never remember that. He never believe me saying that and he kept blaming me that I knew it that was why I kept telling my son we were in the same room to keep quiet about it because he was not happy as well.I kept telling him that I never knew about anything at all but he never believe me.

Olly & Blue NEW

/Olly/ may represent Spanish /olla/, 'a jar, a pot', which the material body is often likened to in occult literature; while blue is usually regarded in the same literature as the color of the Higher Self, Overself, or Oversoul (i.e., Fravashi or Guardian-Angel).
