Do the people in dreams have meanings..?

May 15, 2011 5:29pm CST
Do the people that appear in our dreams have any meaning behind them. If I dream I'm with my best friends, minus one of them, does that mean I care less about the minus one? If a particular guy keeps reappearing in dreams - is my subconscious trying to tell me something? If I'm crying out for someone in a dream - should I be crying out for them in reality? Or does the subconscious just put names and faces in to pull the stories together? Any ideas..? x~x

I don't believe that dreams have any subconscious, symbolic, or prophetic meaning. The people in your dreams sometimes reflect the people you know in your life. They may be people you see everyday, or people you haven't thought about in years. Since I tend to subscribe to the theory that dreams are just the mind trying to make sense of random nerve firings in the brain, I don't really think there's much significance to who appears in your dreams.

I feel that only dreamer knows the meaning of the dream. I think the dreams may reveal our past. There may be some meaning to a dream which the people think that it may happen in the future. However, as I told in the begining, The dreamer only knows the meaning of a dream.

there is a meaning to your dream, but what it means is another thing. it is different for everyone, some dreams are like premanitions others are messages from your guides/angels. some bits may make sense and others you have no idea. i would suggest write your dream down in detail, as much as you can remember. then have a look on the web site www.dreammoods.com and have a read of what is says. it's the best place i've found on the net for meanings of dreams apart from having a dream book.

I think that dreams, the people you see in them and the situations you see them in are all metaphors for your life. Like the bit about your friend missing in the dream. Could this mean that you are missing something in your life. Perhaps a quality or knack that you lack? There are numerous interpretations.

Some dreams are just dreams, a mere fabrication of our minds however dreams that even when we woke up we still remember have some significance. It happens all the time to me that if a certain situation/scene happens in my dream and I could not forget about it or it keeps reappering in my mind after a couple of weeks or months it does happen in reality. Also, if you wake up in a middle of your dream and you remembered something or you have gain information write it down cause come morning you have a feeling that there is something that you need to do but forgot what it is and it's gonna bug you all day. Indeed, dreams do have meaning- a particular importance.

There are some people who believe that dreams do have meanings or their dreams are trying to tell them something. I'm not sure about it but I think it depends on your belief. Sometimes I want to know the meaning behind those dreams but if it means something bad, I'd rather not know it.

it just mean that you're thinking of these people before you go to sleep. Psychological Meaning: If you dream of people you know, this may be your unconscious making you aware of qualities and feelings that you desire. The feelings that your interaction with them gives you expresses will be those you are becoming aware of in real life. If you dream of people you do not know, this may be a way of confronting aspects of yourself. Ask yourself what the dream says about the hidden aspects of yourself. Do you like the person in the dream? What does this person mean to you?

I don't think there are any special meaning to that. sometimes I dream of the last person I talked to on the phone or the last person I chat with. But I believe that there is no special meaning to than. There are some that would say that your subconscious is trying to tell you something. It can also be true but most of the time dreams are just dreams, it is always best to focus on the reality.
