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

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.

      This dream is a reflection of your social and emotional desires. You may be interested in maintaining a relationship with someone who makes you feel safe and secure. The blurred vision may be an attribute of someone in your waking life. It is possible that the vision could be an indication that this person may come into your life in the future. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, as this will draw positive people and energy toward you. Have a great day, Myen!

      These dreams are manifestations of your previous emotional relationship with your ex. Within the dreams, you may be looking for explanations for his actions. Allow these dreams to fade, and focus your emotional energy elsewhere. Determine what you want for your life without your crush. You will draw positive people and energy into your life by sharing your kindness and compassion at all times. Have a great day, Mario!

      This dream is a relationship of your concerns regarding infidelity. It is possible that this dream is a manifestation of the shows that you watch. Abstain from consuming dramatic media. If your partner is behaving inappropriately, then speak with him about your thoughts and feelings. If his actions are acceptable, then nourish your relationship by spending additional time with him in person. Have a great day, Cynthia!

      This dream is a reflection of various emotional relationships in your life. You previous relationship with your ex has appeared, and this may be because something in your life reminded you of him. You are aware that he is married, so allow thoughts of him to fade. Focus your emotional energy elsewhere. This will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Vershu!

          If you think about him in the future, then focus your emotional energy elsewhere. It is clear that you want to move on, so make the determination to do so. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life. Have a great day, Vershu!

    I saw a dream last night that in a temple one guy whom I never ever met in my reallife is following me to say that he loves me madly and when I turn back he’s pretending he doesn’t know and I was suddenly then attacked he appeared as a protector and took me to a safe place and I felt so inspired and fell in love but didn’t express
    to him .My family was there at temple praying when these all happened and later on came to know and met him and my family proposed me for him.So my question is that whether is it a sign that the same will happen to me in my real life ?? Becoz after I woke up this dream is actually haunting me and is making me feel so restless.Usually most dreams I have seen have turned into reality thtsy I’m asking u this question

      The dream shows a desire to love someone and to find someone who loves and protects you. The fact that your family was there in the dream seems to indicate that you want them involved in your real life relationships and you want to find someone they approve of. Once you find someone like this in your waking life, your dream guy will most likely be replaced by your real life relationship.

      These dreams and thoughts are indications of your social and emotional connection with this person. It seems that you need to make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship. It is possible that he is thinking about you as well. Speak with him about your thoughts and feelings, and give him an opportunity to share himself with you as well. Have a great day, Tina!

    I loved this person. i never thought abt him nor did i think abt him the day i slept and had dream about him. The dream was like i was wroking at a hospital(I’m a doc) and he was with amnesia, retro grade one where he is forgot me. That dream reminded me of good quality he had. I never had talked to this guy like real for abt 3yrs. Nor do I miss him. Only thing i felt guilty about was the intentionally tried to hurt him once. Whole day i had guilt consciousness

      The dream seems to represent how your subconscious feels about him now. He is no longer a part of your life, and your subconscious mind feels as if have forgotten him. It may also be due to a worry that he has forgotten about you in return. Either way, the dream does not mean anything significant about your feelings for him and it does not show what you should do in the future–it merely shows what is going on within your subconscious mind.
