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.

HAVE THEM ON YOUR MIND

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.

ASK FOR THE INDIVIDUAL

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.

GO FIND THEM

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.

ASK THEM TO TAKE YOUR HAND

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.

CHECK BEHIND THE DOOR

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.

CHECK AROUND THE CORNERS

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.

IMAGINE IT

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.

SPIN AROUND

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.

ALWAYS REMAIN CALM

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.

KEEP TRYING

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’m just heart broken and hurting … I would do anything to see him again…to hear his voice..feel his arms around me…and look into his beautiful blue eyes..I will always miss him but I know in time it will get better..

      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.

    I had a dream that I was surrounded by my friends, we sat in a big and round table. I was telling them how it feels to betrayed by someone who I fully trust, I described it to them while crying. Next they console me and understood me then I wake up crying. In fact, I’ve never told them how it feels and it’s been a long time since the last time I saw them. They just don’t care. What does it means?

      It seems like a part of you already knows what it means. They don’t seem to care in real life, and you never told them how it feels. This dream was your subconscious mind trying to give you a chance to explain your feelings and get support like you weren’t able to do in your waking life.

    Thanks for this article. Reading through it, I kept getting more and more excited and anxious imagining doing all or any of these techniques, only to come to the one that states to “remain calm.”
    The mind truly is an amazing thing. I cannot wait to try and dream now.

    Thanks again.

    I had a dream where I was crying in a bathroom, I found out I was pregnant. I kept saying that I could barely support my son, let alone another child. I thought that I would have to drop out of nursing school. I talked about the babies father, but I can’t recall his name. I prayed that it was just a horrible dream. Everything turned black, then I opened my eyes, I was in a hospital room and in my arms was a newborn, a boy. My older son (who looked about two) was by my side, he had a big smile on his face. I cried, I looked at both of them and said they needed a better mother than me. I cried so much.

    I’m 17, I plan to go to nursing school, and that dream scared me. I remembered everything about it so clearly, unlike the other dreams I have. Could that possibly be my future?

      This dream seems to be a manifestation of your fears and concerns rather than of a sign of the future. It is clear that your financial worries have impacted this dream, but it is clear that you are taking positive action in regard to your career. Nourish your relationship with your son by spending additional time with him in person.

      Your dreams are a reflection of your own subconscious mind, so it will be hard to make someone come into your dream. If you want to dream about him, try thinking about him before you fall asleep. It is unlikely he dreamed of you because dreams only reflect the dreamer’s subconscious mind.

      Your dream could be an indication of your desire to nourish a relationship with your best friend. Similarly, being naked could be a sign that you feel a strong sense of intimacy between the two of you. Take this time to look inward to better understand your dream, and take whatever action that you feel is appropriate.

      It may just mean you want to kiss him. Many dreams are just a kind of wish fulfillment, which definitely seems what this is. Of course, there is no reason you have to wait! If you want to have your first kiss, make a move and kiss him! Good luck!

      The experience that you shared with this person in your dream may be an indication that you are aware that there are people who are attracted to you. His negative feelings when you informed him that you didn’t want to date him could be a sign that you know how people react in similar situations. If you know someone who is irrational or immature, then you should abstain from nourishing a relationship with that person.

Your feelings with this person may be blossoming, so determine what you believe is viable and appropriate. If you want to date him, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Nourish this relationship by spending additional time together in person. Have a great day, Julie!

    I had a dream where my fiance, his friend Connor, and I were playing video games and Connor had his arm around my shoulder. My fiance left and to help my father. Connor and I started to *mess around* (cough) and after we finished my fiance came back from helping my father and hurried me to get ready for a wedding, and Connor kissed me and said he loves me.

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional relationship. You are aware that you are engaged, so allow thoughts of Connor to fade. It is possible that you are aware of the social relationship and potential attraction that the two of you share. Regardless, focus your emotional energy on your partner. Do not attempt to maintain a romantic relationship with Connor. Have a great day, Becca!

      This dream is a reflection of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. It is possible that your words were indications of your desire to see him again, and his statements were signs that it may not happen. The open door is a reflection of new opportunities in your life. Share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Ally!

    I had a dream where I was walking with my senior year class to prom. We were dropping people off at there distinctions and once we got to the last stop I pushed through people to get to the front and all if a sudden my crush was there laughing with one of his friend. After the teacher said the rest of us must go. So I started walking really slow so that he could go in front of me and I can walk alone but he just walked with me the whole time,i remember being really nervous in my dream and thinking “just say hi”, but I couldn’t do it. Anyway he started dancing weird to make me laugh and I joined him but we never spoke still. From there his friend was in front of us and he walked there and I remembered feeling like he didn’t want to be near me but then I heard him say to his friend “why can’t I just say hi”. What’s does that mean?

      The setting of your dream may be a sign that you are interested in going to prom and having an enjoyable experience with your crush. Your dream may be an indication that the two of you are close and share a strong connection with each other. The behaviors of his friend may be an indication that there are other people in your life that you may want to maintain social relationships with him. Determine what you want for your future, and speak with your crush about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Ya!
