Do You Know What Your Dream Symbols Are?

Dreams can tell us what's happened, what's happening, and what is going to happen. They connect us to the other side and offer us insight that we couldn't get anywhere else.

Your dreams will never lie to you as long as you know how to listen to them!

I've been studying my dreams since I was young and I've gotten pretty good at lucid dreaming, meaning I can 'wake' myself up in a dream and tell myself that it's a dream and then do what I want - fly, see an old friend, or ask an important question. It's a huge part of my excitement for going to sleep at night!

Every morning I remember my dreams and try to figure out if they meant something important, or if they were just random and fun little movies for the night.

Sometimes my dreams offer me the best relationship advice or personal advice that I could ever ask for.

We've all heard of great stories about dreams like Albert Einstein whose theory of relativity was inspired by a dream...that's how powerful dreams really are! You just need to know how to interpret the symbols in your dreams to understand what they mean for you.

Challenge Yourself To Start A Dream Journal And Interpret Your Own Dreams

If you really want to understand your dreams, then you need to be able to interpret them for yourself. No one else has the insight into your life, your dream symbols, and your fears, worries, and thoughts that you do, so you are the only one who can really understand your dreams. Take a 30-day dream journal challenge and see how good you can become at interpreting your own dreams.

Your Dream Interpretations Are Unique To YOU

Everyone looks at certain symbols in dreams and associates something different to them. We do not all view things in the same way.

For example, you might associate the lake with peace while your friend associates it with partying. So when YOU dream of the lake, it most likely represents peace in your life whether you are striving for it or currently receiving it. In short, the lake is your symbol for peace.

Sit back and think about what you associate certain things with. Don't overthink it! Just write down what comes to mind first.

For instance, I would associate the following things as follows:

  • Darkness = calm
  • Water = Peace
  • Parent's home = conflict or turmoil
  • Grandpa's home = comfort
  • Red = love


When you are interpreting your dreams, keep all of your own personal dream symbols in mind. Remember the truth will resonate with you when you see or hear it.

Following are some general interpretations in regards to feelings, sights, and emotions regarding relationship related dreams.

Common Dreams and Interpretations

Sometimes we have dreams about things regarding relationships and we take them a face value - but a lot of the time they are really pointing to some other area of your life.

Dreams Regarding Marriage

Bride - To dream of being a bride, whether it's yourself or someone else, means you are coming into an inheritance.

Man Kissing A Bride - This can mean a joyous get-together between family and friends.

Elopement - This may mean unfavorable events that will or are already occurring in your life.

Partner eloping with someone else - Watch out! You may soon learn about your partner being unfaithful. Alternatively, this could mean you have insecurities or questions about your relationship.

Marriage License - You may make a bad alliance that ends in you being hurt or humiliated.

Dreams With Big Emotions

Happiness - This may be pointing out the obvious but this probably means being happy now or in the near future.

Ecstasy - You will have a visit from a long absent friend.

Joy - To dream of feeling good means there will be harmony among all your friends.

Pleasure - If you dream of gratification you will have many financial and personal gains of enjoyment.

Cheerful - This means that joyous events and activities will soon prove profitable.

Delight - This is letting you know that your life is going well or going to be well soon. Everything is going work out.

Common Dream Symbols Regarding Relationships

There are some very common dreams that we all have. Chances are you have had one or more of these things in your dreams at some time or another. Remember your symbols and listen to your inner self when trying to interpret your dreams. Take into account colors, feelings, time of day, who is there, and everything else when you are trying to interpret your dreams.

Baby - It may mean that an idea or thought is growing and getting ready to be born. An obvious interpretation could be an impending birth. It can also bring to your attention a dependent behavior or need. If the baby is alone it can represent your independence.

Breasts - Of course they may represent sexual desire. It can also represent becoming a mother, need for nurturing, or if you are running around naked, it could mean a fear of exposure.

Kissing - This may suggest romantic involvement. It can also be a symbol of you and someone making up or a reconciliation coming about. It could also mean kissing the past goodbye. Married people or couples kissing means everything is going smoothly and happily and full of harmony. What time of day is it? If it is during the dark it may represent danger or an inappropriate situation. If it's sunny out it may represent good intentions and well meaning.

Pregnancy - It could indicate a desire for a child or not knowing that you are pregnant - but I dream of this a lot and I don't want children! It could also mean something new beginning or coming into your life. Maybe an idea or thought that is getting ready to come out.

Veil - If you are walking around with a veil over your face it may not just be an upcoming marriage. It may mean that you are looking at something through the veil or someone looking at you that way.

Adultery - This can signify your sexual urges and desires that are wanting to come out. It can also indicate disloyalty from your subconscious. You may soon find yourself or already be finding yourself in something shady or disloyal. It probably won't end well.

If your partner is cheating on you it may being showing you your insecurities and your fear of being dumped. It may symbol your feelings of your partner being less attentive and 'there' in the relationship. It may also be your guilt coming out and show you that you are not measuring up to the expectations of others.

Are you dreaming about sleeping with your spouse's friend? This doesn't necessarily mean you want to cheat with them. It may mean that you are feeling neglected by your spouse.

Cheating - Are you dreaming of cheating on something or someone. This may mean you have compromised your beliefs or integrity and/or not making the most of your time and your energy and putting it towards bad decisions and activities. Taking it literally it can bring to life your sexual passion and exploring areas of your sexuality.

To dream that you are cheating at a game, suggests that you are not being honest with yourself.

Lovers - A lover appearing in your dream show your acceptance, self-worth, and recognition of your true value. It may also indicate integration of both your masculine and feminine traits meaning you are feeling complete or whole. You may also dream of your 'dream person' which may indicate that your relationship is not satisfactory to you or it is unfulfilling.

To dream of an ex can symbolize unfinished or unresolved issues that relate to that person. I think we've all dreamt that at times. This may happen when you are in a good relationship and it's waking up your inner issues and memories.

Sex - This may mean you are missing aspects of the person you are having sex with and you want to incorporate them into your own character. It also may just be your desires way of telling you that it's been a long time since you've had sex. If you are trying to find a place to get it on then the dream may be represent your search for a certain intimacy and closeness that you can't find.

Are you having sex with a well known public figure? It indicates your drive to be successful. What do they represent to you? For instance having sex with Angelina Jolie may mean you want to help other people and have the drive to do it.

To dream that you are having sex with an ex may just be showing you that you have some hesitation about getting into a new relationship or situation. Normal!

If you are heterosexual and you dream that you are having sex with someone of the same sex don't spend all day thinking about it. It may just be an expression of being more comfortable with yourself and letting others know you do not affect them.

Do You Meditate?

Are you currently practicing meditation?

Do You Meditate? Meditation Can Help You Interpret Your Dreams

Meditation is simply about being in a relaxed state. In short, you calm your mind (usually into an alpha state) during meditation, just as you do before you go to bed or when you daydream or when you are really relaxed sitting in front of the ocean - or wherever else your mind naturally calms down. Meditation has so many benefits for your health, but we are talking about dreams here - right?

If you want to interpret your own dreams, then meditation can help you do that. Why? Meditation gives you more self-awareness and allows you to find answers that you cannot find when your mind is buzzing and going from one thought to the next.

If you meditate in the morning on your dreams instead of instantly jumping out of bed to get ready for your day, you will have a much easier time remembering and interpreting your dreams.

Moreover, if you meditate before bed, you can focus your attention on things you want to dream about or find answers to - and you will have an easier time influencing your dreams.

Dreams have the power to give you answers, help you sort through issues, and give you insight into your future - and meditation has the power to connect you to your dreams and help you understand them.

You Are The Only One Who Can Really Interpret Your Love Dreams

Remember that whatever resonates as the truth to you is what your dream means.

I get a lot of people asking me what their love dreams mean but, as we discussed, certain symbols mean different things to different people. For instance, darkness for me is calming whereas it might be depressing or scary to you.

I can give you my interpretation of your dream and even let my tarot cards guide you towards a theme or situation, but I don't know all the details of YOU and your life, which is important for interpreting dreams. inside, you know exactly what your dream meant - you are the one who had it! So, you need to learn how to interpret them yourself.

We are all built with an inner guidance system. Meditation is a great tool to help you get access to that inner guidance system. The information is in you, in your cells, waiting for you to find it - so start looking inward instead of outward.

Happy Dreaming!

      @Delia - This really depends on what's happening in your life.

      Are you not sharing your true feelings with your boyfriend?

      Are you doing things in your life that you know you don't want to do?

      Are you committing yourself to something or someone that you don't want to commit to? This could be in any area of your life - career, friendship, spirituality, habits, etc.

      @Kwena - Who is the other guy? Are you assuming I know? You need to add more information in when you are talking to someone who doesn't know your life.

      But, my guess is that you think your mother-in-law doesn't like you or is acting against you in some way.

      @Bella - It may have more to do with your friend than you. Are you worried that her boyfriend is hurting her or going to hurt her? The characters in your dream are not always as important as the symbols and feelings in the dream.

      @Hana - Perhaps your subconscious is trying to tell you that you need to show your crush you like him or else he will think you like someone else. Don't play games. Just make it clear he's the one you are interested in.

      I dreamt I was with someone and we were in love. Things were great except 1 thing. His ex was pregnant and about to give birth. I remember in the dream accepting this situation because I loved him and making the best out of it. In real life I am single and my best friend is having a baby. I did get out of a relationship but I am very single. This dream had been bothering me because the guy and pregnant girl in my dream are not familiar faces. Any advice?

We weren't that close and I saying "awwwww I feel soft" like jokingly in a friendly banter. I turn and see my crush staring at me with sad eyes, as if he was jealous . Help?

      @Jose - *they're

      Do you feel watched? Do you feel as if you are not getting enough alone time? Those are possibilities. It could also mean your subconscious, the part you are not aware of, is longing for some alone time.

      Also, you could be feeling anxious or worried about something, and that's coming through in your dreams. Is there something in your life that is causing you anxiety? Worry, fear, struggle? That could be the cause.

      @Raylee - It could mean he feels like your love towards him is dying. If you have gotten a new friend, new hobby, or are just spending more time away from him, he may be feeling like he's disappearing from your life.

      It could also be due to his insecurities. Even though he knows you care about him, he feels like his disappearing out of your life.

      @Thalia - Because he is always distant in some way, it may mean that you feel that finding your soulmate is going to be a little bit longer. Not quick. Not too soon. But later on in life. You may know this spiritually (have insight into something greater) or it may just be an insight you have because of your plans in life. For example, if you have some great career plans that involve a lot of travel, you may know that you won't have time to be in a traditional relationship.

      Totally Tortured 4 days ago

      Thank you for your insight....it is very helpful! Actually from what I remember both my mom & sister were happy about this other man. I am struggling with my feelings for him & have stayed silent for the last 6 weeks hoping that I would forget about him but instead any time we speak, which is maybe once a week I miss him more & wish that I could see him if even for just 5 minutes. The guilt is definitely killing me because my boyfriend is a great man & I am lucky to have him in my life but you made a good point that I don't feel like he is my other half. With that said I am still scared of breaking up with him and losing him. I need to analyze our relationship separate from this other person. I do not want to leave one for the other. Like you said I need to follow my heart. In which I will need to silence my brain & make the best choice I can make for all of us. Thank you again!

      @Totally Tortured - I totally feel you are feeling guilty. It's only natural. You obviously love your boyfriend, but you are struggling with your feelings towards this other guy.

      Even in the dream, you are trying to be sneaky about it, and, you accomplish that because your boyfriend doesn't notice.

      What does your mom represent to you? Your sister? They both see him and want to know who he is? Do you remember if they were disappointed, curious, supportive, or indifferent?

      For me, for example, my mother symbolizes disapproving sometimes and supportive other times. So if she seemed slightly annoyed or upset in the dream, I would consider her showing up as a symbol that my subconscious disapproves of the relationship with him on some level because he is no good for me. If she seemed supportive, I would consider her showing up as a symbol that my subconscious is seriously considering being with this other guy because he would make me happier or more fulfilled.

      I want to point out that you said this guy felt like your other half, and you didn't say anything like that about your boyfriend. It's a huge insight into how you feel about this guy and how unresolved feelings could still be around.

      I'm not telling you to break up, but I am telling you from experience, that not going with your heart can cause a lot of regrets. For instance, one of my best friends could only see herself with a certain guy, but she ended up marrying someone she thought she should be with because of religion, values, parents, etc. Ten years later, and three kids later, she divorced this guy because of a ton of problems and the guy she saw herself with had died.

      That said, you might regret it if you break up with your current boyfriend.

      In my experience, life is about going with your intuition and heart and owning the choices you make as the best choices you could have made.

      Hope that helps!

      @Just A Girl - I would say it's your subconscious telling you that you need more love in your life - real love where you feel embraced by it. Maybe you need to love yourself more (you are dear to you, after all) or maybe you need to get out and meet new people - one of who might be capable of giving you what this person does in this dream. If the dreams are recurring, that means your subconscious is really trying to drive home this insight to you. So take action and embrace yourself with self-love or the love of family or new friends.

      Totally Tortured 4 days ago

      In a nutshell....I have a boyfriend of almost a year. In the summer we broke up for 2 months. I met someone else that felt like my other half. Never have I felt more myself with anyone. After 4 weeks of us just being friends & spending a lot of time together he left the country for over a month. In that time I got back together with my bf. This other man officially moved to my hometown 6 weeks ago & since seeing him again I am totally tortured. My relationship with my bf is going great. We have worked through most of the issues that broke us up. My bf talks about our future and I get a sinking feeling in my heart because all I can see is me with the other man. I keep having crazy dreams but the worst was last night. Earlier in the night I briefly spoke to this other person in which he was telling me that he wanted to come to my house to see me & just wanted to cuddle with me in bed, which I could not allow. I dreamt that he showed up at my house while me & my bf were sleeping and that I snuck him into bed with me (not sexual). I kept telling him to be quiet or my bf would wake up & see him. My bf woke up (didn't see him) & went to the bathroom, next I see my mom next to me asking me who this other man was, which I ended up introducing them. Next the same thing happens but with my sister. My bf never came back from the bathroom. I woke up right after. What is happening? Am I just feeling guilty, even though I haven't cheated on my bf? Why do I feel so connected & see my future with a man I barely know? I don't want to hurt my bf & I will not cheat on him but I need to figure out why I can't stop thinking about this other man. Any insight is much appreciated.

      I have had multiple dreams in the last month of being in a relationship with someone. In the dream i know that they are dear to me and that I love them. Their presence alone fills me with joy in the dream. The worst ones have me being embraced by them. I say worst because I am battling depression, have no one in my real life to even call a friend much less this. And I wake up feeling heartbroken that it isn’t real. What is the purpose of these dreams? I love them, but I can’t keep waking up to them like this.

      @Aleya - I think you are right, this dream is about your future. Write it down, remember the feeling of it, remember the details such as 'fangirls' and I think you will be surprised in about 5-7 years when you find yourself living out this dream.

      Continuation....

      I forgot to tell you some things.

      I also noticed that I said that I didnt noticed him then said on the other sentence that I forgot. What I meant on the part that I said that I forgot to where I met him is that to where I really saw him first but he does not know me yet. It also not future boyfriend but on that time I was already his girlfriend. The only skin ship we did was hugging, cuddling, and kissing. I also remembered this scene in my dream that we we're looking at the sky. We we're in a lawn maybe and he was sitting in that lawn and I was laying my head on his thighs on his side. That is the only part in the dream we kissed and nothing more than that. I hope you will still read this. Thank you so much!!

      Since I am still 14, I dreamt about this guy (maybe in his early 20's) being my future "boyfriend". It seems that I was actually so happy to be with him. I met him on where my father lives since my family and I are living in my mom's place. I was maybe at the same age as him or 1-2 years younger. It feels so real and now i want to continue that dream and I also want to know who he is. I already forgot his look but I knew that he was good looking. I also saw that he had some 'fangirls' in his dream and I still dont know if he is a celebrity or something like that or he is just famous. Before I also dreamt about this guy, I also had another "boyfriend" before him but he cheated on me. I also forgot on how I met him because often forget my dreams. I only remember my dreams that seemed to be SO important to me. I always have a hard time sleeping and now for me it feels so exciting to dream again. I feel that he is somewhat a real person and i feel that one day this dream is going to come true. I actually don't find it as a sign telling me about my life now and how my life is now. I clearly feel that he is 'going' to be a part of my life someday even tho he is really unknown to me. I never really met a guy like this before that looks like him even when he is young. I need a answer right now so please tell me what does this mean? Is it going to happen? Sorry if this is long but this is the only place I can tell someone because my parents would not really understand me even my friends and relatives so I thought of asking you this. Thank you so much

      @Kayla - It depends on what is going on in your life.

      Are you two worried or fearful about something? Is she making more progress away from that worry or fear than you?

      Do you feel like she's leaving you behind in your relationship or forcing you to deal more with bad stuff/situations/relationships that belongs to the both of you?

      Do you feel like she doesn't hear you and your concerns about issues you are both facing?

If it was genuine, then he must think you are good for you him.

      @Angel - I totally remember you.

      The last part of the dream likely has to do with world events and all the crap and judgments we hear on a daily basis. It's likely just your mind's desire to say, "What the hell is wrong with you?" to all these judgmental people who are so ignorant.

      The part about your ex seems to have more to do with your feelings. You are happy to see him but then scared because of what he's doing and who is. So, it could be your mind to work through the conflict you feel towards him. Love him, scared of him, want him, don't want him, etc.

      @HC - Thanks for sharing all that.

      It's interesting because I found myself swaying while reading your dream and comments - almost as if I was listening to a nice song. I never do that. And then you mentioned that you are into music. I'm just getting the feeling that you should keep delving into your music if the energy from your writing made me sway.

      Anyway, I think your dream is a representation of what you want to happen. You know how we practice an experience that's coming up over and over again in our heads? We say and do things in our imagination and then rewrite the script so that everything goes exactly how we want it to go. That's what I think you are doing. You are contemplating how things could go when you go there. You are preparing yourself.

      Whether or not all this is a good idea is something only you know - or will know once you see her.

      @Thalia - So the duck is a symbol. It's something that is lost and alive, but struggling to stay alive. Are you struggling to keep hope alive that this guy is your soulmate? Are you finding yourself giving up? That duck sounds like the symbol of your inner struggle to communicate with him.

      @Taelyn - Trying to get him out of your head doesn't equal him being out of your head. If he was out of your head, you wouldn't even have to try. So, he's still on your mind and still in your dreams.

      @Lily - So I just talked about how your dream probably meant you were confident in something you were going through. This dream makes me think you are not confident when it comes to your ex-boyfriend. Almost like you let him hold you back by worrying about what he thought or listening to what he had to say. Together, I would think you are becoming more confident in yourself, letting his opinions go, and moving on with your life.

      @Lily - Sounds like you are feeling confident in yourself and whatever you are doing. You're not freaking out, even though you are stuck, which is what most people would do. And you can see the light at the end of the tunnel/tribulation/setback or whatever.

      @Sarah - To me, it seems like you have a problem with your ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend. Maybe you don't like her. Maybe you think she thinks she's better than you. Maybe you think she has something you don't or she thinks she has something you don't. But, the dream is about her more than it is about your ex.

      Just in case you don’t remember me I’m the one that has the ex with the toxic family life that i still love

      I only remember my dream up to this part, this guy didn’t have a date to the dance so last minute we decided to go together! As we were taking group pictures and my ex snuck up behind me and grabbed me....i turned around startled but i was happy to see him. He wanted to talk to me alone so that’s what i did...i noticed something was wrong with him because he was acting mean and aggressive, then he told me he took a lot of shrooms and was having a bad trip. He didn’t know how to handle himself. He said he’d been taking them everyday.......and i said he’s addicted to them now, i felt very scared and i tried to get back to my group, but he grabbed me and pulled me in towards him and wouldn’t let me go...

      Then i think i woke up

      Went back to sleep and my dream picked up at this unknown place, but i was having coffee with my best friend who lives in the UK. The place had a secret passage way to get back to her house in the UK and i was trying to convince her to take me with her, but she said she couldn’t and that I’d have to buy a plane ticket instead, then randomly while we were talking this guy comes up to me to tell me my ex is a bad person because he’s Muslim, but my ex isn’t Muslim...so i told the guy first off my ex isn’t Muslim and second off just because someone isn’t Christian (he was Christian) doesn’t make them a bad personality and doesn’t mean their beliefs are necessarily wrong and i went on ranting about religion lol....really weird dream

      HC 12 days ago

      I was not sure if it may help interpret the dream, but here is some information about me.

      • Age: 19

      • Was in what i thought a serious LDR (long distance relationship) for 1 year 9 months

      • Relationship ended around 2 years ago

      • Have not seen ex since but do remain in contact

      • Was in a rebound relationship a few months later (ended after 9 months because of abuse (sexual))

      • Going overseas in a few months to catch up with friends from previous trip

      • Will be staying at ex’s place (her family offered so I didn’t have to pay for accomodation)

      So I keep having this same dream and every time it is the exact same dream. It always starts and finishes at the exact same spot and it never changes nor is ever different. But it seems to skip places in time (like advancing time forward)

      It starts off where I have just landed at the destination airport of where I am going in a few months and have reunited with my ex’s family, she was there and we hugged as you would as a polite gesture to say hello. Then this is where it gets weird with the time jumps. Some seem longer than others and it seems that during the dream we are not bothered about the past (our relationship) and we are just being ourselves and just friends. But what makes me know that this dream is set in a few months time is that it is the summer holidays and she has just graduated from school. At one point we go to the town lake and go for a swim and it seems we share a laugh and enjoying ourselves. Then one point we are at a movie cinema and walking around the town and the fields (lots of time jumps). It just seems like we are catching up and having a good time really. Then one day in the dream she asks me if I am ok (the first time I hear like any conversation in the dream) and then I ask if we could go for a walk, she said ok. So then we go for a walk in the fields to a spot where there is a little rise near a running creek and everything is green (grass, trees), it’s summer everything is bright, colourful and lively, unlike winter where everything thing is dead and dull and cold. This spot in my dream is actually real but I have never been there with her. But we stop on that spot and I turn to face her and I started to hold her hands lightly while looking down towards her hands, moving my thumbs lightly and slowly on the back of her hands and I say, there is probably no point trying to come up with an excuse now so I am just going to be honest, I had a dream of you last night (funny enough the dream I have of her is what is happening right now in this dream and what is about to happen). She asks, what happens? I reply I can’t say. She asks, why? I reply, because we don’t say anything. She looks down towards the ground. Then while moving the hair off her face and putting it behind her ear I say, but, I can show you. She looks up, and we look into each other’s eyes for a moment while my hand is still up near her ear and then I kiss her. After the kiss more staring. Then things get confusing again and we are back at her house sitting next to each other on the couch and I tell her I need time. Then I think a few days pass, it’s night time and I am in my room I have there, and I was sitting on the bed working on my computer (I produce a bit of music every now and then). Then she walks in, i look up for a second then back to computer asking what she is doing in my room then she comes onto the end of my bed and slowly moves towards me till she is like right in front of me, I look up, she shuts my laptop and takes my headphones off while sitting on the end of my legs, then she starts kissing my face in places (teasing me, never says anything and has a cheeky look). Then we start kissing and things get hot and then the dream stops when things seem to get a bit hot and interesting.

      The thing is, we never have had intercourse together (she wasn’t ready and I was fine with that) and in my dream the intercourse was passionate.

      this dream feels so real and like I am actually there. The fields the town everything is the same and it seems that this dream is set in a few months time when I am going over there.

      I have been having this exact same dream for months now and it never changes. Do you think maybe this dream could be telling the future in a few months time?

      What would be your interpretation of this dream? Because I don’t know what to think of it anymore, i have had it for so long now.

      I had a dream about me picking a duck who was lost, she was alive and all and she jumped in my arms, and I was taking her with me when I realised she was dead. I kept walking with her in my arms and crying because she was dead when I saw the man I believe it's my soulmate (but we aren't together in real life) and I go to him and he hugs me and I cry on his shoulder but then I think "I can't stay with him" or something similar, like a feeling like in that moment I can't stay with him even if I want to but because of myself and nothing else; and I run away from him. Then I see him with his ex but not right now but in the past, I ignore it and turn around and then I see it again. I run away and go to the place when I found the duck and put it there again, she came back to life two more times when I touch her but then stays dead.

      In real life me and this guy don't know each other but I believe he's my soulmate for some reasons even if I'm not totally sure, but I didn't have the courage to introduce myself so I think this dream means that I lost him for now, I don't know.

      @Kamile - I love it when we have positive dreams and retain the feeling when we wake up.

      Because you just saw him a few weeks ago, his energy/presence is still fresh in your mind and in your senses, so you are still experiencing what it's like to be near him.

      @Liza - This could be your subconscious telling you to look for someone who is full of white light - whatever that means to you. To me, it would mean a nice guy who is connected to his inner self, patient, and loving. To me, it might mean something different. Because his face is blurry, the chances are good you haven't found him yet.

There was a window and i see sun outside the window, so i tried to get to the window to climb through it. The gnom was on the sunny side of the window and then i opened the window, so i yell “ahhhh shit, I’m gonna fucking kill you” and i yelled that out loud too while dreaming.

      @Milo - I'm not sure if you met the girl's mother in a dream or real life because it's just one big long sentence with no clarification.

      But, if you met her in your waking life, then that's probably why you dreamt of seeing them together. It was a just a thought you were having.

      If you met that girl's mother in the dream, then maybe you feel like you are missing out on something with your boyfriend - like maybe he's not giving you enough money. (I don't really understand if he's your boyfriend or your ex-boyfriend from the way you wrote your sentence)

      @loveee - So you suddenly stopped talking for no reason? That doesn't make sense to me, so I'm assuming that there was a big reason you cut off communication.

      I have a feeling that reason may have a lot to do with things.

      And did he text you out of thin air? If he didn't, and you had some sort of contact with him - even indirectly, then that may be why you dreamt about him in this way.

      If it was out of thin air, and you dreamt of him randomly and he texted you randomly with no prompt from you or anyone else, then maybe you are going to be back into each other's life.

      But, I have a feeling there's more going on and your dream is just a reflection of what you would like to happen.

      hi kari. i used to be best friends with this guy and then one day we just stopped talking to each other. i secretly really like him, i think i might love him. we had a really good bond. i keep having dreams about him but this one i had the other night really stood out to me.

      i asked him to come over to my house because i wanted to talk to him about something (tell him i like him). we were standing close to each other and i said that i've really liked him ever since i met him. he smiled and then left. the next day i was hearing rumors that he broke up with him girlfriend. the day after that, i was in his house and we were sleeping in the same bed. just sleeping. and then i suddenly woke up in the middle of the night. i started crying for some reason. he woke up as well and came over to me. he was hugging me and asking me if i was okay. i was still crying and i was telling him that i'm madly in love with him and that i really want to be with him. he hugged me again and whispered in my ear that he liked me too.

      this was a nice dream but i don't know if it means something or not? today, he text me for the first time in nearly a year. he still has a girlfriend but i'm still in love with him and definitly can't get over him.

      please help me?

      thanks!

      @Jane - It sounds like you want to be together with this guy. Nobody would ask the last two questions if they didn't think about it. So, I think your dream is just a reflection of that want.

      Is 'n' supposed to mean 'and'?

      In any case, it sounds like you think he's a good guy. But you know many more details about him than I do, so that's really something personal to you.

      As far as you being together, this dream isn't going to decipher that. I would say that if it's been 7 years and you haven't been together yet, then the chances are pretty small.

That makes LPG gas something very familiar to you, I'm assuming, so I'm wondering if you've had an incident where something happened with hit or a safety meeting where you heard that something could happen with it.

Then a few days later in the dream he was riding past me on the strip at the corner where I cross the street to where I work....he was in a white suit with a hat on ..don't remember color....n he was waving to me as he passed n was smiling n staring as well.

The dreams would be back to back for a period of time then they’ll stop. But now in the present, the dreams about my high school crush are reoccurring again. And in some dreams we’d be talking and he would say that he needs to talk to me. However I never get to see that part of the dream where we actually talk.

      I had a dream where me and my crush became good friends and he was being really supportive towards me, at one point we sat in the hall (I'm still in high school) and watched a play but he sat next to me. Some other little things popped up, mainly nice things kinda like little hopes or scenarios?

      I don't know if it means anything but the song 'Diamonds' by Rihanna was playing in the play but I haven't heard that song for ages.

      I've recently been having lost of dreams with him in but they all take place in different scenes but with similar people.

      Me and my crush sit on the same table and next to each other in some lessons if that helps? We talk quite a lot but never message over the phone :(

      Just wondering what this all means?

      @Qatra - Do you mean exit or excite? I don't really understand what you are saying there.

      However, I don't think any kind of loving being would tell you not to let any person in your life, especially one that you love. That doesn't make sense.

      So, I think it's your own subconscious creating this dream.

      Perhaps you are keeping people out of your life for a particular reason that you think is valid.

      @T Mo - That could mean a million things depending on what is going on in your life.

      For example, if you are actually attracted to him, then it could just be a fantasy playing out.

      Or, if you are attracted to a quality in him, then your subconscious could be letting you know that you may want to work on developing that quality in yourself.

      @Angel - I'm not sure why you 'LOLed' about his father trying to control him. It's not a funny situation if he's being abused like that.

      It sounds like you lack confidence in yourself, so in your dream, you make this guy your protector who fights for you and maybe even controls you a bit. I'm not sure that's a good thing for your confidence.

      Either that or he's very controlling in your relationship. Maybe he's older than you or maybe he takes out his abusive family life on you. I don't know.

      But, I just don't get a good vibe from the situation. I don't know why his dad wouldn't want you together, but there must be some reason. No matter what it is, the energy from it is just off, so I would highly recommend letting it go and finding someone who isn't in a situation where they are forced to choose something else over you.

      So my real lifesituation with my ex is that we are being forced apart by his psycho dad. And he’s a grown man in 20s, but his mom passed so he went to go live with sick dad and paid his dads house off with money from mom death ....he is in a sticky situation because his dad threatens to take away his house and business w brother because brother is against him too. Even though they really can’t do that, his dad is a violent person amd wasn’t even in his life for 14 years and is trying to control him lol that’s why currently we aren’t together. But we love eachother so much and he says he wants to marry me one day.

      And now I just had another dream that we were together at some type of frat house during the day and they were all trying to go skinny dipping in the pool... (weird I know) but my bf was not. And I wanted him to do it with me lol.....but then they had everyone lined up and tried to partner us up randomly for some type of game and he yelled at them because he only wanted to be partnered with me and that he wasn’t gonna be with another girl. Then we went upstairs and this girl was rude to me so he screamed at her....and locked her out of the room we were in and I woke up......

      My ex and I recently broke up, but we want to be together and are still in love. We are just in a complicated situation keeping us apart.

      I had a terrible dream that he got this new girlfriend as I was waiting for him and was being told by my friends that he has a “new girlfriend” ...

      @QueenBee - I think you mean proposes?

      And, since you said 'a man', I'm guess you don't know him.

      Therefore, you probably are looking for commitment in your life. It doesn't have to be in a relationship, but it could be. It could even be you are desiring yourself to commit to something in your life - career, health, hobbies, etc.
