It felt so real

Last year I had lost my ex due to cancer, and have been very depressed ever since. I loved him with all my heart and always will have a spot in my heart for him. 3 weeks ago I had a dream about him. This is the dream. It was a cool brisk night in Autumn; I was walking between a school building, and a fence. The pavement was black from being wet, and I observed a small pile of leaves swirling before me y my feet as I walked toward a person dressed all in black, whom I thought was Charles (my dead ex) I got closer to this being, and it turned out to be a gorgeous lady with dark hair and eyes. I looked at her with disgust pulling away from her. ''You're not Charles'' I said with sorrow in my voice. I attempted to turn away from her, but she spoke as she grabbed me by the arm gently. ''This way''. She walked off and expected me to follow her. I followed with curiosity, this lady had me hooked for some odd reason, and I just couldn't leave no matter how hard I wanted to. So I followed her to a white building with black railings. She opened the door and I followed inside, going down a pair of concrete steps, the railings here where also black. I recall the lady stopping mid point of the stairs and I passed her, looking up at her as I reached the bottom. ''Pick a door'' She told me. I looked at 2 doors that were before me, both doors had a number on them. number 3 was the door ahead of me, and number 5 was the door to my right. I looked between both doors carefully, and decided to go with 3, as 3 was my fave number. I opened door number 3, and observed an empty underground parking lot. As the door opened all the way, I could see Charles standing there, he was glowing. I looked up to the lady who guided me to him, and thanked her briskly and ran through the door and into Charles arms. We held each other so tight as I bawled. ''I miss you so much'' I recall telling him, and he said the same. He told me that he loved me and I told him the same. It felt so real just to hold him once again. I told him I should join him, because of the intense sorrow I'm feeling. I asked him why he left me, why he didn't tell me he was dying. It seemed like he didn't want to tell me, and then he was gone. I woke up crying, and this dream has been bothering me ever since I had it. I wonder what it means, the numbers, the nighttime, the doors, etc..

this is frustrating, i must say. but even with this, just dont forget to pray and offer to God all your worries about your dream. Just have faith that it would not come true. and dont overthink about it. remind yourself that it was just a dream, and no big deal about it.

Dreams are amazing experiences that occur in the subconscious part of minds. There are a few reasons why people dream what they dream; lack of a specific stimuli, excessive presence of a given stimuli. For your case it would be due to lack of a given stimuli, you missed your ex so much that the only way the brain could help was by bringing him in your dreams.

Honestly you made me cry..As I experienced that before..I lost my first love due to cancer too & he didn't told me,He just told me he was sick and 3 months later,He left me so devastated,sad and alone.He was my life & my world then....and believe me,I almost had the same dream as you, the only difference is the place and I think it only tells me one thing,that I miss him so much and although it broke my heart, I know that he wanted me happy....It's been 11 years since he left,I have moved on and I know wherever he is,he is happy for me but there are times that I still cry and yes he will always be in my heart forever.

Wow, that was obviously a very intense dream. It can be so wonderful to have dreams that seem so real and then again it can be so difficult with some dreams when they seem like real life. In my opinion, I don't know if you would really learn anything if you knew for certain what some of the symbolism meant. If there is some way you can take away from the whole experience some good memories, I would just focus on that. It is a privilege to love people in this world. That is what makes life worth all the effort. You are fortunate that you found someone you were able to have a meaningful relationship with. If it feels good, I would revisit the dream as many times as you want and relive how it felt to love him and feel loved by him. It will be bittersweet. It will hurt but there may be some good feelings there too. Lean on the good. Embrace and take comfort from the good memories and dreams. All the best to you...

I'm no expert dream analysis guru... in fact I don't even really believe in dream interpretation. But reading your dream, it did seem like it was a vivid dream to you. It was very sweet and also very sad. I hope in the future remembering it can give you some kind of peace instead of the sorrow you're experiencing now.
