It's been nights that I'm having this dream, it's not a recurring dreams but it's always about my past job. It came to me in different situations and in my dream, I had mixed emotions. Excited and happy to see my ex co-employees and at the same time nervous. I'm just puzzled why I'm having these dreams. Is it because maybe unconsciously I miss my job and want to go back?(Because I've heard that they are re-hiring back) or what?...Need some advice here, thanks a lot in advance!

maybe you just miss your job... maybe you're very happy while you spend your time there that's why you still having dreams about it... I guess whenever we are in a good place that seems to be very memorable to us, it still keep coming back to our minds and it's one of the reasons why we always see it in our dreams

Thanks meozard22, on the other hand, I think it's my heart's desires too because part of me really wants to go back but I'm also hesitant to do so too...So, I'll meet you halfway, maybe it's both heart's desires and memories that we like to recall over and over again

Hello My friend :) Somehow I'll agree with that, cuz I always dream about loving someone like my family , loveones, etc . So I usually dream about them , because I just love them so much .

Your dreams may just be a part of your memories of an event that was special or noteworthy enough to latch into your subconsciousness. I have that all the time with my former classmates and I going back to high school. I also have vivid dreams of bullies and negative events in the past that got twisted (yes, it was not a nightmare, I woke up just a little grumpy). Dreams are not a sign of something you want. Rather it is part of your collective unconscious, as defined by Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, as mental forms of whose existence cannot be explained by past events in your life and may be made up by your interpretation of how things happened.

Hi friend... i'm not a psychiatrist or anything or someone who can interpret dreams, but i remember this preaching in our church before, he said that dreams are made of human's unlimited thinking that although were asleep our minds are continually thinking, maybe it's because that you've been thinking a lot about this former job you have as much as your ex co-workers, so at night when you got asleep you continually imagine on what if's you get back to that job, what will happen and sometimes what you expected to happen.... beside this i really don't know enough about the facts of dreams... hope this could help

Thanks friend and so sorry for the late response....I think that somewhat it's my heart desires but for some personal reasons, at the same time I'm hesitant.

Hi, whengcat. Dream is associated by the flower of sleep or your deep intention. It could one of them. In your case it seem that you really want to go back there ( I just see it from your discussion). I could not help you much in this situation cos there is nobody more understand yourself condition except yourself. It is better for you to think and see your real desires. Choose the best for you. Good luck
