Access to Your Subconscious Mind

Some people feel that dreams are an entry point to your subconscious mind. Your dreams are a manifestation of what your subconscious mind has recorded and plays over and over.

 

Some people see dreams as a way through which our minds visualize something that we want to do or have but cannot. Since you ex is very familiar to you or may be closer to you than anyone else before, they are being represented as the character that you want however you cannot be with in your dream.

Still In Love

Often we dream about our exes because we are still in love with them and they are a dominant thought when we are awake. It is normal to dream about being with your ex because you are always thinking of them. When you are ready to move on, your ex will make fewer appearances in your dreams.

Emotional Baggage

Your dreams about your ex may reveal emotional baggage that you may not necessarily be ready to unpack. Maybe you are having regrets about the relationship and how the relationship ended abruptly.

If you are having bad dreams of your ex, this could be a reflection of your own fears and insecurities. We all tend to second-guess ourselves. These dreams may bring on feelings of self-doubt about your break and may motivate you to seek to reconnect with your ex.

Your dream might be a representation of the power struggle that exists in heartbreak. Your ex has power over you right now. The dreams that you have about them are just another way that they are still controlling your life even though they are not around.

There are still some emotions lingering from your break up and you are expressing these emotions in your dreams. You need to address these emotions head on and they will no longer after your dreams.

Dreams Are Dreams

Sometimes a dream is just a dream and it means nothing more, nothing less.  means that something in your subconscious mind is bringing  your ex to the forefront of your mind and it doesn’t necessarily mean it has anything to do with him at all but just as its translated into your dreams.

Don’t get too worked up over it! Focus on healing your heartbreak and moving on and you will be okay.

~Here’s to your healing!

    Hi, I am having dreams about my Ex boyfriend we been together for almost 3 yrs and the break up was bad I didnt want it to end like that I mean we always had fights and we would get over them thats what makes you stronger together but this one just turned ugly and I`ll never underdstand why I have so many thoughts and questions but I cant just come out and ask him he wont even look at me maybe he has a guilty conscience I mean after all he did lie to many people, I dont know. Anyways, I am dreaming about him alot it seems every night he`s in my dreams either i am marrying him, getting back with him, or we are having intercourse or he still loves me, I dont know it confuses me. Can someone please tell me if its normal to dream about your ex boyfriend every single night? I thought people didnt have dreams every night? I know I never do this is a first for me and it scares me. Can someone explain this to me. Thanks. Your website is very useful explains alot but I need so much more information I looked everywhere and I am not getting answers, please help.
