Dream Dive: Dreaming About Someone
Dreaming about someone is one of the most common dreams. Whether it is someone you are familiar with or not, these dreams may bring curiosity. Are they thinking of you? Are you supposed to be dreaming about them? How can you stop dreaming about them? You’ve probably asked yourself a ton of questions.
The first thing you should understand is that you have to unpack your personal feelings. Your dreams come from your thoughts, feelings, and other everyday factors. If you want clarity about why you dream of someone, here are some things to consider.
Why do I keep dreaming about someone?
Generally, dreaming about someone stems from how your conscious mind perceives them. Your thoughts and feelings concerning that person may be weighing on you. You may also be heavily involved with the person but you are suppressing your emotions. These suppressed feelings will make their way into your subconscious mind.
Another reason for recurrent dreams about a person is your subconscious mind telling you to pay more attention to them. Maybe there is something you have been ignoring about this person that you need to take note of. This could be about spending more time with them or even pulling away.
Pay attention to your dream to see what kind of reaction you have to them or their actions in your dream.
Are they thinking about you?
When you dream of someone, you may wonder if it is because they are thinking about you. This is called dream telepathy. The possibility of this happening can’t be completely shut down, but scientifically speaking, dreams do not occur this way.
Your dreams are made of the things you do throughout your day and the thoughts that weigh heavy on your mind before sleeping. If your mind is fixated on someone before bed, it is common to dream about them.
Dreaming About Your Ex
Dreaming about your ex doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to get back with them. These dreams can come from guilt, anger, love, or anything else. Dreaming about your ex when you are in a new relationship happens when you spend a lot of time comparing them to your current partner.
How to Stop Dreaming About Someone
The only way you can stop your recurrent dream about someone is to release your suppressed emotions concerning them. If you are on healthy communicative terms with the person, try having a conversation with them to uncover these feelings.
Writing letters to yourself is another way to release suppressed feelings. You can be your own emotional outlet and it can work just as well as talking to someone else.
You can also direct your energy and thoughts to something else that you can feel strongly about. Try new hobbies that can keep you busy. Get involved in different conversations with people you feel comfortable with.
Lastly, meditation is a practice that can help clear your mind and filter out these thoughts before bed. This will give you a peaceful sleep and help you avoid those recurring dreams.
