What Does It Mean To Dream About Your Ex?

If you dream of an ex when you start a new relationship, chances are you are comparing him to an ex. An ex-dream is a manifestation of your relationship with men and women in general.

A dream of your ex is your unconscious way of asking you to get out of the relationship and get on with your life. You see, in a dream where your ex rejects you and doesn't want you in her life, it means the same feeling you feel for her in your real waking hours.

In general, the lack of fulfillment in your relationship with your ex that appears in your dream may indicate an unfulfillment in your financial life, social life or other areas where you have not been successful for some time. In such dreams, your ex could be somewhere in your head and come to terms with your feelings of deprivation stemming from a failed relationship. If you feel rejected or loved in your current relationship, such as when your ex appears in a dream, it can tell you to rekindle the lost connection and bond between the two of you.

Your dreams could help you maintain a decent relationship with an ex for the sake of your children. This is another reason why I hear that many divorcees hate their ex and continue to dream of divorce or to have sex with their ex, even though they have already divorced and sworn off divorce and never have anything to do with them again. When you are happy with your current partner, you may want to take a closer look at your feelings and dreams to not view dreams about your ex as some ominous warning that your relationship is a sign you are falling apart.

Dreaming of someone you love in this way can help you incorporate the lessons you learned from a previous relationship into your new one. A dream in which you and your ex fight or see each other again could indicate that your current life brings back memories of the relationship. Dreaming about seeing an ex means you will meet someone in your waking life whose ex-qualities bring back similar feelings you felt during your relationship with that person.

Instead of seeing your dream as a sign from heaven that you will rekindle the flame, use it as an opportunity to reflect on the qualities you want to bring to the relationship and the healthy ways to achieve them.

If it is something missing from your current relationship, take a step back and identify the cause of your dream. The dream could be triggered by a fundamental change in the relationship. It can come back because you feel that the relationship has become monotonous or that you are in a dry spell.

If you continue to dream about your ex-partner, it could mean that your current relationship is not going well or that you miss the happy, carefree timeline of your life that you enjoyed with your ex. Dreams of your ex-boyfriend, girlfriend, ex-husband or wife, where you and your ex kiss and argue or where you are and he comes back together, can indicate that your current life evokes similar emotions that you experienced during the relationship with him or her. When you dream of someone, Loewenberg says, it's more about how you love yourself than how you handle the relationship.

In this way, the dream could mean that you have insecure feelings towards your current boyfriend or that the ex is part of your current relationship. She adds that if first love turns up in your dream and you are single and looking for a relationship, this could be a way for your subconscious mind to remind you that you are still in love with someone who still loves you.

For example, if you have cheated in your relationship, you are more likely to dream of infidelity than those who have not. On the other hand, you can dream of killing your ex if you try to get back into a relationship. In one study, 35% of people who were in a relationship dreamed of their current partner or ex.

When you dream of your previous relationship, it can mean different things depending on the type of dream, context, and the various problems you face in your waking state. If you decide to share an ex's dream with your current partner, take some time to consider your current partner's emotions and the state of your relationship. The emotions you experience in the dream can help you to get a more complete picture of your dream and to recognize whether it is your ex or someone else.

The people and events in our dreams are symbols chosen by our subconscious mind that you can learn by writing down what happened, how it affected you, what memories and feelings you associate with the things you dreamed about.
