what does it mean when you dream about someone you love
Dreaming about someone special is one of life’s most common and pleasant experiences, but it can also be confusing. It’s normal to dream about the people you love, but what does it mean when you dream about them over and over? Here are some common causes of recurring dreams about a specific person:
You’re feeling lonely
You’re feeling lonely
As much as we all love our friends and family, sometimes it just feels good to be with the person we love. We dream about being in the arms of someone who makes us feel safe, secure, loved and valued. The person we dream about is often the person we would like to spend our life with. That’s not to say that if you don’t have a significant other or spouse that there isn’t someone special out there for you—but when you dream of being alone with this special someone it can make all your loneliness melt away since they are so close by in your dreams!
They’re not reciprocating your feelings
You’re not sure if they love you back, so you dream about them. Dreaming of an ex or someone who doesn’t return your feelings is a way to work out your emotions and get closure before moving forward with your life. You may have experienced a recent heartbreak and are trying to cope with the pain. This dream can also mean that you miss having someone in your life, especially if the person in question makes you feel safe and secure.
You might be dreaming about them because they were part of an important event in your life: maybe they were there when something traumatic happened, or maybe they were there when something positive happened (like getting married). Dreams like this one help us process what has happened—and make sense of it emotionally—so that we can move on from any lingering negative feelings we might still be feeling.
You want to feel closer to them
If you dream about someone you love, it could be a sign that you want to feel closer to them. It could also mean that you are feeling vulnerable and need support from a loved one. Alternatively, it may indicate that you are feeling lonely or insecure about your relationship and want reassurance that all is well between the two of you.
If the person in question is someone who has recently been on your mind—or if they have recently broken or ended things with you—this dream could also be related to unresolved issues between the two of you. As such, it’s important not to jump too quickly into an interpretation before considering other factors first; however, if there is no other explanation for why this person would show up in your dreams than their recent absence from them (e.g., if there was no breakup), then perhaps this meaning fits best!
You’ve had a recent heartbreak
If you’re dreaming about someone you love, it could be an indication that you’re feeling vulnerable and lonely. You might also be feeling emotionally raw and confused. If your dream ends with the person leaving for no reason, it could mean that you feel guilty or angry.
You miss having someone in your life
In many cases, dreaming about someone you love is a sign that you need to be with them in real life. If you aren’t currently with the person, it could be a signal that you’re feeling lonely and wish they were around more often. On the other hand, if you are with them in real life but still dream about them often enough for it to become an issue for your mental health, it’s likely because there’s something about your relationship that could use some work—and not necessarily just how much time together this couple spends!
They make you feel safe and secure
Have you ever wondered what it means when you dream of someone that makes you feel safe and secure? If so, then chances are the person in your dreams is someone very important to you. The reason this happens is because of the way our brains work.
When we’re awake, we constantly process information about our surroundings and store it in our memory banks for later use. This allows us to remember things like names and faces, but also keeps track of any emotions that were felt at the time something happened as well as how those emotions made us feel emotionally. When we go to sleep, our subconscious takes over from here and uses these memories from moments during our day-to-day life (or even just hours earlier) along with imagined scenarios based on those memories which can cause dreams about loved ones being present during them – which would explain why dreaming about them feels so safe!
You experienced a traumatic event with them
You may be repressing your feelings about a traumatic event that you experienced with that person.
This might include:
- a breakup or divorce,
- the death of someone close,
- their betrayal or abandonment of you, or
- something else significant in your life.
Pay attention to how you feel when you dream about this person and it should become clear what your subconscious is trying to tell you.
Pay attention to how you feel when you dream about this person and it should become clear what your subconscious is trying to tell you. For example, if the dream makes you feel happy and joyful, then perhaps it means that you are missing them. However, if the dream leaves a bad taste in your mouth or makes you feel upset or depressed, then there may be something else going on that needs attention.
In order to get at the heart of what’s bothering us when we have these types of dreams, it’s important to understand our own feelings as well as those expressed by others in our dreams. We can do this by creating a list of adjectives like “happy,” “sad,” “scared.” Once we have created this list, it becomes easier for us to determine which emotions are related specifically with the person (or situation) who appears in our dreams; from there we can begin identifying exactly where those emotions might stem from within ourselves.
These are just some examples of what it might mean when you dream about someone you love. As we’ve seen, there are many reasons why this can happen, and most of them have to do with emotions that need processing. If you find yourself dreaming about someone who isn’t in your life anymore—and especially if they were important enough to leave an imprint on your mind—it might be time for some introspection. Who knows? They could represent something deeper still: perhaps a lost part of yourself or even God! In any event, it pays to pay attention so that you don’t miss any opportunities for growth in your waking life as well as sleep-state experience.”
