What It Means When You Dream About Someone – by Tana Hoy
Dreaming is one of the most fascinating and mysterious aspects of the human psyche. For centuries, people have interpreted dreams to be a kind of omen, and even scientists have tried to explain this natural phenomenon. One thing is for sure though, dreams have meanings, and when you dream about someone, that has a meaning, too.
If you need help in understanding your dreams, during a psychic reading I can help you understand the true meanings of your dreams. You'll probably be amazed when you understand the deep-seated meaning when you dream about someone.
Why Do People Dream?
You dream because when your body is at rest, your mind takes over. Without the external, physical distractions of everyday life, when you dream you are able to become more aware of what is going on within you on the psychic level. In short, you're able to look inward, not outward.
Dreams are symbols, and they carry with them messages that allow you to gain insights about yourself and the world around you. You may dream "normal" dreams, which are expressions of what you've experienced or are experiencing, or you can have special dreams, like talking to your spirit guides, or receiving warnings of future events.
When Does It Mean When You Dream About Someone
So if you dream about a particular person, what does it mean? Many people believe that when this occurs, that person they're dreaming of is dreaming about them, too. While this is not impossible, it's more likely that if you dream about a person, it's because they are a symbol of a certain aspect of your life.
For example, dreaming about a childhood friend could mean that there is something in your youth that you'd like to go back to. Your adult life may be taking a toll on you, and you're craving for the freedom of your younger years when you had no worries. Or it could also mean that your old friend embodies an aspiration that you haven't achieved yet.
Another example is, if you dream about someone you know who is always angry or sad, it could be that you're experiencing anger or sadness at some level, but you're not admitting it, even to yourself.
How Dreams Can Help You
Dreams are a way that your subconscious lets you know what is really happening within you. There may be issues in your life that you're not dealing with, and your dreams can be a way to help you face and resolve these issues.
Dreams can also reveal to you how you can get out of certain situations, as well as overcome problems. Dreams about certain individuals are particularly helpful because these people are a part of you, so they represent a stage or aspect in your life.
Dreaming about an old lover after many years, could mean that you're missing them, but it's more likely that there are issues in your current relationship that you need to resolve. On the other hand, unless there is a direct message involved, the presence of a deceased loved one in a dream could mean fear of loss.
How To Interpret The Meanings Of Your Dreams
The thing about dreams is they are highly symbolic and very personal. Therefore, no general interpretation can truly be claimed as the meaning of a particular dream.
Moreover, the interpretation of a dream depends on looking at the whole context of the dream, as well as your relationship with the person you are dreaming about.
For instance, how close are you with the person? What is the current situation of your relationship? How long ago, or how recently have you seen them, and how often? Also, how often does the dream occur?
What I recommend is to have a dream journal and keep it handy by your bedside at all times. When you wake up, try not to "rise and shine" all at once, because dreams have a tendency to slip away.
Instead, remain in a half-asleep state, and write down everything you can remember about the dream, including your feelings, smells, colors, facial expressions, and the like.
Then later on, you can go back to what you've written and try to analyze it accordingly by looking at how each symbol or aspect of the dream relates to you, and how it affects you.
