What Does it Mean When You Dream About Someone?

By on September 22, 2014

Dreams are mysterious. They open a realm of extreme curiosity and oddities that us as humans are always trying to decode. And when you throw certain people and events into the mix, dreams become all that more astonishing and questionable. What are these messages hidden in our dreams trying to tell us, anyways? If you’re wondering what it MIGHT mean when you dream about someone, here’s a few answers:

Dreaming About Someone:

Dreaming About Someone

There are many, many reasons why you might be dreaming about someone in particular. What is your subconscious mind trying to tell you? The simplest reason could be that you simply fell asleep while thinking about this certain person. It’s only natural that you thought about them while you fell asleep, and they found their way inside of your sleep pattern. Another simple reason is that you’ve been thinking about this person a lot– maybe even more than you should be. They’ve been on your mind for quite some time throughout the day, so of course they’d be in your thoughts in your subconscious dreams as well.

 

On the other hand, your dream might not even be about this person. It may be something much deeper. For instance, you might be dreaming about certain qualities this person’s personality: you are going through a stressful period in your life, and this person was a stressful impact in your life. Therefore, you’re dreaming about this stressful individual as a result of what’s going in your life at this moment. Your dream could also represent the relationship you had with someone. For example: maybe you had a very pleasant relationship with this individual, which may occur if you’ve entered into another great relationship with another person or you’re simply at a peaceful time in your life.

 

Dreaming About Someone You Like:

Dreaming about someone you like

It’s not uncommon to dream about someone you’re interested in. After all, you’re probably thinking about them heavily on and off throughout the day, so of course they’re going to come into the realm of dreams. However, pay close attention to what happens IN the dream. For example: Did they like you back? This means that you are secure in yourself and have confidence. You may even have enough confidence to believe they like you back, which means you’re ready to take the next step towards advancing the two of yours relationship.

On the other hand, if they didn’t like you back, this could be a signal that you are unconfident and believe you will be rejected by this certain someone.

 

Dreaming About Someone You Love:

Dreaming about someone you love

When you dream about someone you are in love with, it’s important to pay close attention to what happens in your dream. Dreaming about someone you love, more often than not, will show you how deep your love and passion is with this individual. For instance: if you’re dream is nothing but happiness and joy, the two of you hand in hand on a romantic date, then it’s fair to say you have a deep connection with your partner. On the other hand, if there’s lots of fighting and instability, it could be a sign that you’re losing the connection with this certain someone. If you’re dreaming about your partner being with someone else, it could mean that you don’t feel as passionate as you once did with this person. However, although this type of dream is sure to stir up some unhappy emotions, it’s important to remember that it’s just a dream- no matter how vivid it was. Look to find the root of why you dreamt your lover with another person and build from that.

 

Dreaming About Someone Who Has Passed:

Dreaming about someone who has passed

These dreams could either represent something very positive, or something negative. It all depends on what happened in the dream. For starters, a deceased person whom you were close to may visit you in a dream to offer you some comfort and closure. Did you have an issue with this person before they died? Maybe that issue was resolved at some point during your dream. Are you going through a rough patch in your life? Maybe this person has returned to give you some great comfort and give you some guidance on what you should do next.

 

There are some spiritual theories that suggest some deceased individuals will return to disclose the location and reason of their death to those closest to them. For example: was this individual found dead but the killer was never found? They may disclose to you who did it. Was their body never found? They may tell you where the body was hidden. Depending on circumstances, it might be an insight that needs to be followed up with authorities.

 

Dreaming About Someone in a Sexual Way:

Dreaming about someone in a sexual way

This type of dream, otherwise known to some individuals as “wet dreams” have an obvious reason: the individual is turned on to a certain extent and needs an outlet for their passions and desires. Now, it’s important to know that having a sexual dream about someone in particular doesn’t always mean you’re attracted to or even want to engage in that behavior with said person. It’s simply a way for sexual emotions to be outpoured and the person may vary. For example: just because you had a sexual dream involving your boss, doesn’t mean you’re sexually attracted or interested in him. You’ve been around him all day long, so of course he’s on your mind to a certain extent. Your subconscious paired the two and left you with such a dream. (But of course, if you’re dreaming about someone you’re interested in it could very well mean that you’re attracted to them and fulfilling your passion and relieving sexual tension through a dream).

 

Dreaming About Someone Famous:

Dreaming about someone famous

There’s a couple of reasons why you might have a dream involving someone famous. The first most common interpretation is that you wish to better yourself or do what this individual is doing. For example: if you’re dreaming about a football star on your favorite team, you might want to become a football player and try to make your way to the top (or simply play for fun). On the other hand, dreaming about someone famous is also a way for us to get over disappointments in our lives: something big happened that let you down, but dreaming about this famous somebody who’s done something amazing gives us hope and happiness for the future.

 

Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

Other Reasons You Might Dream About Someone

Sometimes when you dream about someone- no matter who it is- it has absolutely no correlation to the actually individual. Sometimes these people are there to symbolize things you’re feeling or things that are going on in your life. Sometimes these dreams are meant to help you see through problems, get over a bad experience, or bring you hope and joy. Never read too deep into the actual person- pay more attention to what is going on in the dream and how the dream made you felt. As we all know, dreams can be incredibly real sometimes- and sometimes that’s exactly what we need to see through situations or feeling in our current lives.

      The behaviors of this person in your dream may be a reflections of his actions in your waking life. It is possible that the media you consume has caused these dreams to manifest. You are no longer obsessed with him, so allow thoughts of him to fade. If he reaches out to you in the future, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Have a great day, Blaire!

          You made the decision to delete your social media presence because of this person. This is a clear indication that you have moved on from this person. Continue to remove him from your thoughts, as you make the decision to focus your energy on him in a manner that is not helpful to your social situation. Determine what you want without him, and change your behaviors to move you in that direction. Have a great day, Blaire!

              You are aware of the impact that your emotional relationship with this person is having on your life. Since you have acknowledged this, you should take this opportunity to change your behaviors. Allow thoughts of this person to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. You are aware that you need to focus on your grades, so make the determination to do so. Please share more of your experiences and insights in the future. Have a great day, Blaire!

    I had a dream the other night that was a bit too strange. Most of the time I dream, I am not in my own body but somebody’s else’s, this time I was a lady and the events happened in the medieval times. I had to get married to a monster because I was cursed by a witch, the monster was obsessed with me even since the curse and he would not leave me leave. I eventually fall in love with a guy that has very beautiful qualities and we tried to escape, however the monster found us eventually so I had to give up on escaping with the ”love of my life” and went back to live with the monster. Time passed and ”I” grew old, when I was living my last days the witch appears. She told me that I could of killed the fire that the monster had long time ago but I decided to feed it instead. After I felt a feel of acceptance but also regret because I did not try to fight back the monster but I surrender and lived unhappy instead.

      This dream is a reflection of various influences in your life. You may find benefit in turning some of these dreams into books or movies, as they certainly are imaginative. It seems as though each dream has a moral, so allow them to influence your behaviors in a positive direction. Continue to share your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Ana!

      Your statement is not clear regarding what aspects of your comment took place in a dream and what took place in your waking life. If this happened in your dream, but the two of you are still friends, then nourish your relationship with her by spending additional time with her in person. If this happened in your waking life, then give her the space that she requires. If she reaches out to you in the future, then speak with her at that time. Have a great day, Irvin!

    I went to sleep and woke up the same way I was when I was awake, same position room looked completely the same it was realistic. There was a voice in my head saying things I can’t really remember and I felt my pillow raise up as if someone was taking my phone from under my pillow. I couldn’t move or talk at all. I tried so hard to move and couldn’t move and tried yelling for my parents and couldn’t. I then finally moved out of my bed. But I seen myself laying there in my bed. I was out of my body and I seen my dad and was trying to talk to him but he didn’t acknowledge me. Then there was another “soul” and the voice said the better soul gets to keep my body. Finally towards the end I was back in my bed and the voice said welcome back, and I tried to move and actually moved. I was creeped out and went to sleep in my parents room. I don’t know if it was real or now, but it felt so real, and what would the meaning to that dream be?

      Your experience, real or illusory, is a positive dream. You are aware of this spiritual event, and you will benefit from it. This positive soul is yourself, and you have grown. It is important that you allow this to guide you to share your kindness and compassion at all times. It is certain that you will have many interactions in your near future that will shape your future. Have a great day, Theresa!

      You are aware that this dream is different than normal. You may be interested in nourishing a relationship with him. Your dream may have been a manifestation of your feelings. Allow this dream to guide you to speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. Strengthen your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Gift!
