Once I dreamed that my instructor was showing off, doing these really crazy ukemi. He would do backflips and turn around, landing in forward rolls. He would jump from behind the mat, fly over the mat, and roll on the floor on the other side of the mat. He would then jump up really high, flip over while hitting the ceiling with his feet, that land in a high fall roll.
I often dream that I am doing aikido with many other people, both as nage and uke. Everything is going smoothly. My ukemi is amazing, and so is my nage waza, but techniques are not as important. I don't ever remember the techniques that I used, but what stands out is the blending with my partner. Also I'm not thinking about doing anything, but more like watching my own motions as I am doing them. It would be amazing if I could do like this in real life.
