How to Dream About Someone

By on January 15, 2017

Have you ever felt the urge to dream about someone in particular? You want them to arrive at a moment when you’re the most comfortable, most relaxed, and when anything can happen. There’s no telling what could happen in your dream, but you want them to be in it either way; but how can someone ensure that a certain person will show up in their dreams? With a few simple tips and tricks you can be one step away from drifting off to dreamland with that special someone by your side.

The first thing you need to do is practice or enhance your lucid dreaming skills. Lucid dreams are dreams that happen and the person realizes they are asleep and not in reality. After acknowledging this you can begin manipulating your dreams, to the point where certain situations and individuals can be a part of them.



The most important thing you can do to ensure someone arrives in your dream is to think about them often. From the moment you wake up in the morning until the time you fall asleep (and especially when you’re drifting off to sleep) this person should be on your mind. Make it a priority to think about them constantly throughout the day so you can mentally prepare your mind to think about this individual even when you’re dreaming. It’s also imperative that you are completely calm throughout the process. If you’re stressed out or anxious while thinking about this person, then the dream may not occur, and if it does, it may not turn out the way you want it to.


During your lucid dream, the easiest and quickest way to have an individual arrive in your dream is to simply ask for them. If there are other people in your dream, go right up to them and ask them if they have seen the person in question, and if they can go get them for you. Have the belief that the person will go get the person you want after you ask. You could also try telling them to get that person directly.


Another really easy way to get someone in your dream is to go look for them. In your dream, if you see a place where the individual would often go- for instance their workplace, home, gym, or another spot they are often attending or love to go to- enter that location and find them. Only do this if the place is nearby, within walking distance in your dream. If you have to fly to the location you may end up getting distracted by something else and losing your lucidity altogether.



Want someone to show up in your dream? Just ask! During your dream you need to hold out your hand and say “___, take my hand”. Sometimes the individual will appear and grab on to your hand the moment after you say that.


While you’re dreaming, if there is a door nearby you should go and check to see if the person for is behind it. You should have the idea in your head that the person WILL be located right behind the door. If someone else answers the door, ask that person if the individual you are looking for is there.


On the other hand, if you see any corners in your dream, look around the corner with the expectation that whoever you want to see will be around the corner waiting for you. It’s a quick and easy trick but it tends to work often.


One thing you can try to do while you’re having a lucid dream is to imagine a location or scene in your head where the individual will be. This particular way of dreaming about someone requires a lot of effort, so it’s typically not a first choice especially if you’re new to the lucid dream game.



When you are lucid dreaming, try spinning around for about 5-10 seconds. While you’re spinning, think about the place and the people you want to see when you are done spinning. After the 5-10 seconds is over, stop spinning and your scene should appear.


One important way to succeed in dreaming about someone is to make sure you stay calm the ENTIRE time. It is even more important to remain calm when you see the person you are trying to dream about. Don’t run up to them or try to sneak up behind them. Don’t be nervous or scared when you see them. All you need to do is remain completely calm and be happy to see this individual. If you don’t remain calm, that person may leave your dream or the situation could be bad.


Lucid dreaming is hard and requires a decent amount of time and effort to really get it going. The best piece of advice anyone could give you is to keep trying! Even if you don’t succeed for the first couple of tries, it doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future. Keep using all of your priming techniques and eventually you should get to the point where dreaming about someone is a rather simple task.


Before you try to dream about someone remember that you first need to know how to manipulate lucid dreams. If you need more information about lucid dreaming and how to lucid dream, there is plenty of information on the web. Once you’re confident that you know when you’re lucid dreaming and you can slightly manipulate your dreams, then you can try these tricks to dream about someone

Didn’t know dreaming about someone could be possible- and so simple, right? Have you ever used lucid dreaming techniques to dream about someone? If so, did you use one of the above mentioned techniques? Share with us your stories.

    I read this thing before sleeping and it works but mine want a lucid dream. My dream was so long and I remember nearly everything so I want to share my experience. So there is this guy I really really really like so I wanted to dream about him and later that day i watch the kissing booth. So in the dream I was swimming with my family in like a beach. There was a lot of bugs and scary animals everywhere. We where there in a while and then the beach turns out to like a pool inside. But the bugs and animals was still there. I was swimming with my friends and I did cool tricks in the pool. Then later the pool center was like closing but we could be there. So I was swimming alone under the water. Then out of nowhere my crush came in and said that he was going to get something in the corner of the pool first so I swim there fastest I could. When I where there my friend, her sister and a random person where there but no water. So I asked my friend what’s wrong and she said that her sister is mad on her (before night in school my friend hurt her leg and I help her to the nurse) so I said don’t be mad on your sister and then she jumpt on me and hugd me. Then she lied on my knees. I found a broken necked and saw memories from my friend and her sister. After al that we was at my moms friends house. But the house was soooo big like 100 floors upp and down. There was a lot of people in this house and one of my friends. My friend and I was talking and then she saw my crush they where talking and I always wanted them to be together. Then after they tally my friend kissed my crush and everybody was like oooofffff. And then I took my water bottle to the toilet so I could fill it upp and they caked in to the toilet kissing and I was just standing there and filling my water bottle. Then it was night there was just me, my crush, my mom and my moms creepy friend. I was always thinking of him so I could also kiss him but I was nervous. Then I was going to take something from the wardrobe and saw my crush standing there so I got back so he wouldn’t see my. Well he didn’t see me so I was thinking that I could go in there really fast so I could fall on him and land lips on lips. So I did it and he pushed me back and said whooa. And I was like oh sorry I did it see you there. Then I went diene and saw a name flying. It was a invisible man but you could see his name like a game. He started throwing things and I tried to find him. It was att this moment I started waking upp so I tried to make my own dream. Then I said to my mom too come and came. This guy started throwing things on och and it alomost kills my mom. At this moment I saw like really nerly awake so Before I totoally wake upp I waned to end this dream in a good way so this guy trowed a sharp thing so I jumpt front of my mother and got stabbed. My mom yelled heeelllppp. And my crush came (at this point I was like really awake) And I told him that I loved him and told him there was one thing I wanted to do. So I took his head and was about to kiss him BUT there was one thing. MY FRIEND CALLED MY WHEN I WAS ABOUT TO KISS HIM. I got so mad and started crying. I dissent even go to school for this dream. But I forgive her because this was my first time doing this and it went really well so I can do it again. Well sorry that I wrote so much but hope y’all the best.

      It is clear that you have many social and emotional influences in your life. Similarly, you made it clear that you want to strengthen your relationship with your crush. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take whatever action is appropriate. If you want this relationship to be developed, then be certain to speak about your thoughts and feelings with your crush.

      You may be describing sleep paralysis, as some people feel a negative presence when they have these experiences. Lucid dreaming is when you feel that you are able to direct or control your dream.

      Perhaps the dream just shows a desire to be admired by someone famous or who other people consider attractive. It sounds like your subconscious first experimented with the idea of having a famous family member before deciding that a famous crush was more exciting.

      It is clear that you felt a strong and powerful connection with Peter. Ensure that your memory of him guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will honor his memory. If there is something that you can do that would make him proud, then behave in an appropriate manner.

    I tried this recently and I would like to share my experience. In the dream I was in my bedroom sitting on the edge of my bed. I became aware of the dream and so I called the name of the person I wanted to dream about (I do not know this person but it is someone I feel inexplicably connected to). The first thing I noticed after calling his name was that the chair to my desk was suspended at the foot of the bed. It appeared to be stuck in the air, the air itself has a texture/consistency something like gelatin in that specific area. Then I felt a powerful presence and was thrown backwards onto the bed. I did not see a person but I felt as if a person or entity was on top of me. It was extremely vivid/intense, it didn’t feel like I was dreaming about a person so much as someone or something had entered into the dream. I haven’t tried again since because I thought there was at least a possibility that it might have effected the person as well. Any idea what might have happened?

    My dad passed away in November of last year and we were best friends and I miss him terribly. As he was unconscious when we arrived at the hospital I desperately want to say goodbye. I have been to the woods twice to walk the dog and both times although I don’t actually physically see him, I can imagine him walking towards me. It has only happened in the woodland and I feel him so close there. It was never a place we went together. Kind of weird eh?. Apart from that I haven’t felt him close at all. Wonder why this is.

      It is natural to want to see him and feel his presence when you didn’t get to talk to him after he passed. All of the feelings you are going through are quite normal. Perhaps something about that place just triggered your subconscious mind to think of him for some reason, and you may never figure out what that exact trigger was.

      Dreams about death are often indications of your knowledge of change. Fire, similarly, is a manifestation of destruction and renewal.

    This isn’t a dream but last friday I was in class in a conversation or more like just listening to it instead and this girl in class said I look like Squidward when his face got smashed by the door and everyone laughed kinda. Basically saying that I’m handsome but that part was hidden to my ears until later on I thought about it. I never said anything to become apart of the conversation but only watched and listen then I replied back by saying ok with a low tone voice. Today I was away from the class in the hallway just in front of the door to our class and I didn’t notice this but she was kinda close to me instead of hanging out with the other classmates but not making any kind of eye contact towards me and neither did I. Any thoughts on that?

      It is possible that she is interested in you, as you determined that she meant you were attractive. Determine what you want for the future of this relationship, and take whatever actions you feel are appropriate.

        These dreams are reflections of your social and emotional desires. It seems that you should make a decision about what you want for your future, as this will help you navigate your life in a beneficial manner.
