Here’s What Dreaming About Your Ex Means

Having dreams about an ex can leave you feeling confused and guilty especially if you are in a new relationship. We can’t control our dreams but as you know dreams do have some sort of meaning. They can make you question your feelings while you attempt to understand why you dreamt about that person.

If you have dreamt about your ex before here is what it could mean according to analysis on,

Dreaming about being visited by an ex – This can mean that you are reflecting on positive past experiences. It doesn’t necessarily mean you miss that person though. It can also mean that you are encountering similar qualities in another person – perhaps your new partner?

Dreaming about getting back together with an ex – This does not mean that you want to try again with an ex. Dreams about getting back together may be triggered by major changes in your current relationship and how far you have come from past relationships.

Dreams where you’re missing an ex – These dreams can mean you miss this person, or perhaps certain qualities of the person. But it can also mean that you miss feeling wanted, or that you miss being in a relationship.

Dreams about seeing an old ex – These can leave you waking up pretty bewildered. These dreams actually indicate you wanting to recapture the excitement and freedom that youth has to offer, either in a current relationship or in life.

Dreams where your ex is giving you advice – Dreams about taking advice from your ex are actually just your subconscious telling you not to repeat the same mistakes you made with your ex. Pretty responsible,

Dreams where your ex is missing you – These dreams could imply that you are missing some aspect of your previous relationship. Alternatively, it could mean that you’ve finally moved on. And they’ve missed their chance.

Dreams where your ex is sick/dies – Dreaming that your ex is sick or dying is actually a reflection on where you’re at with that relationship. It is actually a metaphor for how you have let go of the past and are ready to move on and fully devote yourself to new relationships.

Dreaming of nursing your ex back to health – Going down the nicer route, dreams where you are helping your ex recover through sickness means you’re probably still dealing with the break-up.

Dreams and what they mean

When we fall asleep we tend to see images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep.  Since we are normally in an unconscious state, when we wake up we hardly remember what the dreams were about.

This normally makes a lot of people eager especially because we are not able to decipher the meaning of the dreams. Most dreams come from our daytime activities, the stress or the joy of the day may affect your dreams. It may also depend on what issues you may be having example dealing with death or sickness.

Sometimes you may dream that you are falling in a hole that has no end or maybe you have someone chasing you and as you run you fall down and struggle back up etc. Some of these dreams could mean that its something you are struggling with and you are not sure how to go about it and most probably you are thinking of giving up.
