The subject of dreams , besides being exciting, is also a fertile ground for all sorts of interpretations and phrases made. Today we will analyze one that many surely know already, since it belongs to the popular wisdom, which postulates the following: to dream with someone means that person misses us.
There are several theories about the characters that appear in the dream , and how these relate to the dreamer. One of these theories belongs to none other than Sigmund Freud , who in 1922 published a little-known work called Dreams and Telepathy (Traum und Telepathie) , where he examines the possibility of telepathic dreams . Does dreaming of an ex-partner mean that this one misses us.
Not necessarily, here is why
The theory of dreams Sigmund Freud – the interpretation of dreams (Die Traumdeutung) – suggests that dreams are ultimately representations of unconscious desires. Because of their subterranean nature, these desires can not be consciously expressed while we are awake, so that they have only one way to ascend to the surface and perform symbolically: dreams .
Carl Jung , on the other hand, in his work On the Essence of Dreams (Vom Wesen der Trume) , analyzes the hypothesis that, under certain circumstances, It is possible to communicate with someone through dreams .
This type of communication happens spontaneously, although under the same foundations proposed by Sigmund Freud: the DESIRE. Thinking about someone is not going to make that person dream about us , precisely because it is a conscious DESEO, that manages to express itself during the vigil. In any case, to make someone dream about you, that DESIRE must be fed by a kind of subterranean tension, at the psychic level. If the unconscious does not bring its energy flow, there is no possible dream projection.
To dream about someone does not mean that that person misses us , at least not necessarily, Since his appearance in the dream could come from the unconscious DESIRE of the dreamer himself. However, there are other extremely interesting conjectures about it. Many researchers hold the hypothesis that there are different planes of consciousness to which we can access through dreams on the physical, etheric and astral planes .
According to this theory, the former correspond to our psyche, that is to our repressed preoccupations and desires. The second gives us access to the collective unconscious, for example, through lucid dreams . And third parties, for their part, allow us to communicate with other dreamers; And even get into another person’s dreams .
Missing someone for a long time, but especially REPRESS THE DESIRE to see that person again, are the fuel for this type of phenomena to occur.We recently asked ourselves the question: if two people have the same dream, is it still just a dream? . The answer, in part, would be YES: it is still a dream, but a dream understood as an experience that goes beyond the limits of our psyche.
It can happen that someone whom we miss much, or who misses us, appears in our dreams , or that we have a shared dream with her , that is, when two people dream the same . The phenomenon can also manifest itself through recurring dreams , basically when someone always dreams of the same person .
But returning to the initial question: does dreaming about someone mean that that person misses us ?, The answer should be NO, for certain cases, and MAYBE, for others. It all depends on what kind of dream it is, that is, on what level it develops.
