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.

 

What’s the craziest, weirdest, or most wonderful dream you’ve had involving a certain someone? What do you think the dream meant, and how did it make you feel?

      You are aware of the relationship that your grandmother and sister share. You may have watched or heard of a recent discussion between the two of them, and this may have appeared in your dream. Nourish your relationships with each of them by spending additional time with them in person. You will find great benefit in sharing your kindness and compassion at all times.

        This dream may be an indication of various social relationships that you have in your life. There may be someone in your life who is supportive of you, but you are not interested in maintaining a relationship with. The person that you like may be someone that you are interested in. Make a decision about what you want for your future, and take appropriate action. Have a great day, Ann!

      This dream may be a reflection of your social desires and relationships. You are aware that stealing is unacceptable, so your behaviors may be related to peer pressure. This may be a sign that influences in your life may be influencing you in this manner. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will bring you many benefits in the future. Have a great day, Ueiskdnrh!

    I dreamed about my ex-lover. A lesbian partner. We were so sweet in the dream. Feels like we were together again. She kisses me like the way she did before. I am pretty sure that I still love her but she already have someone in her life now. It’s been four years now when we got separated. What does that mean?

She may simply be a reflection of your previous connection, or she may be thinking about you. Ensure that you share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life. Have a great day, Erika!

    I had this dream where this person, who we will call “Bryan”, and I like each other but don’t know it. Friends around us knew that we liked each other but “Bryan” and I had no clue. We continued to hang out and watch TV and I put my head on his shoulder and softly grabbed his arm.

    I do know “Bryan” in real life but he was interested in someone else and so was I. I have never liked “Bryan” romantically.

    I don’t know if this means that I’m in love with him/someone or that I finally love myself and I’m ready to love someone else. I’m really confused as to what this dream means.

      It may mean that you want to relax and have some fun with someone as a friend or even something more. You may be missing this easy, relaxed relationship in your waking life, so your subconscious mind gave you a friend/boyfriend to play that role.

    So, as a young woman, I do have a celebrity crush on someone. However, I get occasional dreams of this celebrity being mean to me.

    Sometimes, in the dream, we could know each other personally or he would be of celebrity status, but he would be rude to me. And honestly, I wake up hurt every time it happens. I assume it could mean I feel some sort of insecurity about myself but it would be nice to have an actual explanation for this! It drives me insane.

    I had a recent dream of a guy I used to be involved with romantically. It was a very special relationship and it was great fun. He had a great personality and I had a lot of respect for him as a person. He would have liked to marry me but I felt it was time to end the relationship since I didn’t feel he was mature enough for me. We were both sad about ending the relationship. In the dream I went to his home, which is in another state. The door was unlocked and I opened it and walked in unannounced. The feeling I had of entering the home was that I felt freedom to be there and to enter without knocking. But the most prominent feeling I had about the dream was that I needed a place to stay. I was there because I was in need. I wasn’t worried or upset. I was calm but I needed to be there. Also in the dream I saw him from a distance, in an adjoining room. I saw him from the side and he wasn’t aware of me. He seemed to be in his own world. There was also the sense that he wasn’t married, although I heard that he was years ago. But he was alone in the house and there was a sense he was not married. I was puzzled by the dream because I don’t think of him or have a desire to be with him. The most prominent feeling I had about the dream is that it may have been to show me I still needed to disconnect from him spiritually. I prayed a prayer the night of the dream to do that. I really feel the dream was about me and that seeing him in the dream was not about the present but about the past for me.

          Panthers are often manifestations of mysterious social relationships. Lions are reflections of strong social or familial relationships. It seems as though this dream is an indication that you are navigating the various relationships in your life. Make a decision about what you want for the future of this relationship, and take whichever action you feel is appropriate. Have a great day, Nayna!
