Dreams are involuntary images and stories that your mind creates while you sleep. Your dreams can be fun, entertaining, romantic or boring, but they can also be really strange, disturbing and horrifying. Dreams are usually full of your common everyday experiences but with their own vivid and bizarre twists. We all dream – even those of us who don’t remember the dream the next day. But why do we dream?
There are several hypotheses and possible explanations as to why we dream. Some experts and researchers believe that dreams represent our unconscious wishes and desires, while others believe that we dream to process all the information we’ve gathered throughout the day. Some researchers believe that dreams have no purpose or meaning and are simply senseless activities of the sleeping brain. Others think that dreams are important for our mental, physical, and emotional health, and they work as a form of psychotherapy.
What does it mean when you dream about someone?
Just as there are so many opinions as to why do we dream, there are also countless of different views and opinions as to what our dreams mean. According to many experts, our dreams have no connection to our real thoughts and feelings, and they are just weird stories and images that don’t relate to real life. However, others say that our dreams reflect our deepest emotions, thoughts, desires and fears. By interpreting your dreams, you may be able to develop insight into your own life.
Romantic dreams and dreams about people you are familiar with are very common. Dreams about the person you are in a relationship with or the person you love can leave you feeling happy and excited. According to Sigmund Freud, dreaming of someone you love is fulfilling a wish you have to see that person. So, if you haven’t seen your loved one for a while or you’re feeling sad and lovely, you might have a chance to see them in your dreams.
This type of dream can also give you a clue about how to improve your current relationship. The most important thing is to consider what you were doing and how you felt in the dream. Your subconscious may be telling you to focus on certain parts of your relationship (or your partner) you are not particularly happy with. However, your subconscious may also be telling you to do more of what does make you a happy and content person.
If you had a dream that your loved one cheated on you, it could mean that you miss the intimacy you two used to share. However, if you dream that you’re the one who cheats, you are afraid of losing your loved one, so your dream reflects your fear. The actual emotion you felt during the dream, can also tell you a lot.
How to interpret your dreams?
When it comes to interpreting romantic dreams there are no rules. True analysis and interpretation comes down to how you felt in your dream. However you decide to interpret your dreams, it is acceptable. Dreams are mysterious and very personal and only you know what your dreams truly represent.
If you think that your dreams have a meaning, then you should dig deeper into your mind and find out that meaning. Some dreams are the result of your wish fulfillment, while others are just the result of your brain processing pain or sadness that you have experienced throughout life. Once you understand the reasons why you’re dreaming of certain people, you may learn something important about yourself.
