What Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone

Dreaming is the magic parallel reality our subconscious is creating every night. And it’s fascinating how our minds are wondering about fantastic worlds and scenarios when we are asleep.

Many of our dreams are influenced by our emotions and our day-to-day life. It’s important to remember that dreams are not premonitions and don’t predict our future. Rather, they are a reflection of our subconscious. You can see in your dreams certain feelings or emotions that you couldn’t connect with when conscious.

Claire Aristides, a dream and hypnosis expert, recommends us not to find negative significations about our dreams or be afraid of them, but better see dreams as a mirror to our subconscious. This is wonderful news because we have another door to see into our souls and to get in touch with our hidden emotions.

Repressed emotions, worries, or fears may be the cause of dreaming about someone in different situations. Let’s see what are the signs when you dream about someone you do not know or about someone getting married.

 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone You Never Met?

If you dream about someone you don’t know, you should try to remember everything you can about that person in your dream because it may tell you something you don’t know about yourself.

When we are facing a new or unique situation in our life, we are forced to react instinctively. And sometimes we may be surprised by ourselves, by what we said, what we thought, what we felt, or what we did.

Subconsciously, you don’t recognize that part of yourself. And it reflects in your dreams under the identity of a stranger. Think about the last couple of days and try to determine if you’ve been through a new challenge that forced you out of your comfort zone. The stranger in your dream is you.

 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone

You are no longer friends with…

When you wake up after dreaming about someone you haven’t seen in a long time or about an estranged friend, you are probably confused. Is your mind telling you that maybe you should reconnect with that person? Or you’re missing them? That’s not the case.

You have to remember that dreams are about you and your subconscious. So don’t worry! You don’t have to make any uncomfortable phone calls.

When you dream about someone you are no longer friends with, the person represents a part of your personality that you struggle with. When you repress a part of who you are for a longer time, your subconscious will bring out a person that you associate that feeling with. For example, if you are shy in a situation, you may dream about a person in your life that was shy.

Try to remember what was particular about the person you dreamt of and associate that trait with what you are going through.

 

Dreaming of someone getting married

Weddings are all about celebrations and happiness, especially for the grooms. But when you dream of someone else getting married, you are not the lead character not in your dream nor an aspect of your life.

This dream shows you that you stepped aside from a situation or a decision that gives you anxiety. It may be a situation that involves people you care about, perhaps a member of your family goes through a difficult situation. And this is your subconscious signaling you that maybe you should take action. You should get involved or help.

If this is a possible meaning, then maybe you should improve your behavior, be more courageous and participate in the situation.

 

What does it mean when you dream about your crush

Waking up with your crush in your mind after you dreamt about him or her can give you butterflies and vain hopes that you might end up together or that he/she loves you too.

But in reality, psychologically speaking, dreaming about your crush is normal and doesn’t necessarily mean anything. When you think about a person constantly or you see that person daily, the chances you dream about him or her are very high.

It’s important not to fall into the convenience trap and find meanings that aren’t true. Yes, we would all want our crush to love us back, but dreaming about him or she is not a sign. It’s just our mind wondering about what we want.

 

What does it mean when you dream about your ex 

We all want our dreams to be about unicorns, ice cream, and lovely psychedelic situations. But our sweet subconscious is sabotaging those plans with repressed feelings and thoughts we have in real life. And it can be frustrating, especially when you dream about your ex. This dream can have many meanings depending on how you dream about him or her.

Maybe you have unresolved issues with your ex, or maybe you have insecurities regarding a new relationship. Maybe you are afraid someone will hurt you or maybe you are finally ready to forgive him or her and let them go.

Think about how you were in the relationship and associate that behavior or feeling with your present life.

It’s important to remember that dreams are about you and everyone that appears in your dreams represents a part of you and your personality. Your subconscious is the boss of your dreams so everything you go through in real life is filtered by it and it can affect what and who you dream about. But that’s really good news because if you pay attention to your dreams you may find answers about suppressed parts of your personality.

So, no matter who you dream about, that person usually represents a part of you that you struggle with in real life. 

Take it easy and don’t forget to dream high!
