Generally unconnected, complex and fleeting, dreams give rise to countless theories. Most people try to interpret its meaning with the tools at their disposal. But in reality, unless you are really an expert on the subject, you rarely understand its meaning, you are mostly confused and intrigued. Certainly, it is common to dream of the person we love. But what would the symbolism be? Does that imply he’s thinking of us?
What does it mean to dream of someone you love?
Although it is nice to believe that when you dream of a special person, they necessarily think of you, no scientific study has come to prove this fact. Unless it is really a happy coincidence, there is no guarantee that you will be in the thoughts of the person who appears in your dreams.
Generally speaking, dreams reflect more projections of the dreamer’s own feelings and emotions. As Sigmund Freud, a neurologist and psychoanalyst, mentions, dreams are usually projections of your own desires.
Therefore, if you dream of the person you love, it is surely because you fell asleep thinking about him or you simply cannot get him out of your head even when you sleep.
This often means that you are holding back a lot of your emotions about that special someone. This case is quite common and is a way of manifesting your first steps in love. If in the dream the person rejects you, it is possible that you lack self-confidence and feel insecure.
Another interesting interpretation: according to Freud, this type of dream has a compensatory symbolism. What we do not dare to say or do in reality, we express in an oneiric way through dreams. In other words, the blocks you feel towards this person disappear in the dream, allowing you to fully express your feelings.
What if it was a lucid dream?
The world of dreams is really exciting, but much more complex than we imagine. Most of the time, we do not know that we are dreaming, we even have the impression that we are living something real: only when we wake up do we realize that it was only a kind of mirage. But, they come in all forms, including lucid dreams or astral travel.
Lucid dreams are almost like half-wake dreams. They are those in which the dreamer is fully aware that he is dreaming. Even better, he can even direct her dream as a director or screenwriter. It is a particularly fascinating phenomenon: the dreamer can control his projection at will and even transform the scenario of his dream by integrating new people or modifying situations according to her good will. That is why the dream cannot become a nightmare, for example. What is quite disturbing in these types of dreams is that sometimes it is difficult to differentiate the dream from reality.
At one time or another, anyone can lucid dream. They usually take place during REM sleep and you can control how the events unfold. Also, you don’t need to have any magical powers, if you are in a higher energy vibration than usual, you can even interact with a specific person. For this you need to train your subconscious. It is a somewhat complicated process, but feasible.
Therefore, it is possible that the person you love is thinking of you when manifesting in your dream because he is trying to send you a message. However, if you dream of precisely this person, it is because he does not come out of your thoughts.
