Does Dreaming of Someone mean that THAT PERSON MISSES US?

 

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.

If Life is a Dream, is Death Awakening

 

Let us leave aside the psychoanalytic interpretation of dreams . What do we have left? Our personal experience. And what does this experience tell us That everyone, absolutely everyone, shares something extremely disturbing in relation to dreams :

Everything seems real when we dream , no matter how extravagant the stage or impossible the characters that inhabit it: while we dream we live that reality with absolute normality, without feeling in any Moment something is wrong … until we wake up.

Then, with a certain stupor, we wonder why at any moment of the dream we realized that clearly we were experiencing an absurd, ridiculous, if not directly impossible situation.

Why Dreams Always have a Sense of Reality in them

 

As we said before, on certain occasions we may realize that we are dreaming. It is not frequent, but it happens. The same happens in life: in certain circumstances, being fully awake and in possession of our cognitive faculties, we feel that something is horribly wrong with the world around us. We can not specify exactly what it is, but it does exist. It is there, something is wrong, horribly wrong, but the sensation is like lightning, a flash, Which crosses us for an instant, and then disappears.

We have all experienced this sense of unreality, absurd, even ridiculous, in real life, as if something was not quite right. These brief episodes, such as deja vu , may be analogous to the feelings of someone who dreams and suddenly understands that he is dreaming.

In the face of this, it may happen that the dreamer knows in some way that he is dreaming, during that fleeting but breathtaking moment, and yet decides to continue in the dream.

It may even be that we, the dreamers, who, in the face of a momentary awakening, hasten to continue sleeping in the hope of returning to that particular dream. We can not accuse our dreamer of being a coward for wanting to stay in the dream. Would not we do anything, within reason, to continue living

Never Before thought – This Alternate thought on Life

 

Upon awakening we abandon the reality of dreams, and only then did we notice that it was completely unreal. And when we die, perhaps, we also realize that this reality, which we judge to be objective, was as unreal as that of dreams. Faced with this arise some concerns:

  • What happens to our Self in the dream when we wake up
  • Does it disappear completely
  • Is it swept into a state of non-existence
  • Or is it reabsorbed back by the consciousness that dreamed it

And what happens to our self in real life when we die? Will we inevitably disappear? Will we be thrown into oblivion? Or will we be reabsorbed by a higher level of consciousness After all, perhaps our death is simply the awakening of that other consciousness that has been dreaming us.

Maybe that awareness feels the same as we do when we wake up: that the dream we just had was extremely rare and unreal. We have all dreamed of flying . The feeling is very pleasant, by the way, And upon waking we are astonished that it has been so intense; But of course we know that it was only a dream, that is, something that is not real after all.

Perhaps, after dying, that other consciousness thinks the same about our reality. It was intense, no doubt, but how unreal that of having a physical body, of walking, of pacing with senseless concerns.

Why Falling Asleep is Always Considered as an Illusionary Death

 

If life is a dream , a passing illusion, a very convincing simulation, then death could simply be an awakening. And just as the dreamed self has no idea of ??being dreamed, let alone that its own reality is at least illusory, neither can we realize that we are being dreamed.

We are afraid of dying, yes, But who assures us that the dreamed self does not feel the same In fact, we can not know how a dream begins or ends ; Just as we do not remember our birth and certainly there is no tomorrow to remember our death.

It is probable that upon the awakening of this reality, of this dream, a much more conscious I feels exactly the same as we feel when we awake from a dream. Depending on how nice or horrible it may have been, we will devote a few moments of reflection, and not much more.

Or even worse: just as many times we can not even remember our dreams , perhaps the consciousness that dreams us does not reserve any privileged place in its memory.

Because if life is a dream, And death the awakening of that consciousness that has dreamed us, nothing assures us that we will be remembered, not even as a bad dream.

Lives of excesses, of overflowing, may persevere in the memory of the dreamer as fateful erotic dreams . Dramatic lives, traversed by losses and tragedies, may be inscribed in a wide catalog of nightmares . But the gray, boring, overly stable lives that in this dream of reality are the most ambitious ambition of the majority probably do not deserve to remain in the memory of the dreamer.

To finish we shared an infinitely more elegant version of these reflections from the hand of poet John Keats – On Death (On Death) – Can death sleep, when life is but a dream, and the scenes of bliss pass like a ghost Ephemeral pleasures resemble visions, and we still believe that the greatest pain is to die.

How strange it is that man on earth must err and lead a life of sadness, but do not abandon his rugged path, nor dare to contemplate only his fatal destiny, which is nothing but awakening.

The Swine Killer: Villiers de L’Isle-Adam; Story and Analysis.

 

The swan killer (Le Tueur de Cygnes)is a horror story by the French writer Auguste Villiers de L’Isle-Adam (1838-1889), published in the1887 anthology : Tribulat Bonhomet (Tribulat Bonhomet). The killer of swans , undoubtedly one of the beststories of Villiers de L’Isle-Adam , tells the obsession of a man by the swans. It is not simply the affection or admiration for the beauty of the swans, but also the unspeakable desire to murder them in the most cruel way possible.

This true homicidal person discovers in his observations that the swans also dream, and that it is possible to approach them slowly, Centimeter by centimeter, while they sleep peacefully on the water, without waking them. This unique method allows you, in principle, to enjoy near the beauty of the swan, but also to listen to his last and desperate song when his hands close on the long and delicate neck.

It is probable that the killer of swans is, in short, an allegory that hides a fierce criticism of the French bourgeoisie; However, we can also appreciate it as one of the 10 best French horror stories in history.

When consulting the volumes of Natural History, our illustrious friend, Dr. Tribulat Bonhomet had ended by learning that the Swan sings well before dying . Indeed, he confessed to us, since he had listened to her, only this music helped him to endure the disappointments of life, and any other seemed no more than a belligerence, pure Wagner.

How had he gotten that amateur joy

In the environs of the ancient fortified city where he lives, the old man had discovered in an abandoned park, in the shade of large trees, an old sacred pond, on the sombre mirror of which twelve or fifteen birds glided; He had meticulously studied the entrances, calculated the distances, observed mainly to the black swan, the watchman, who slept, Lost in a ray of sun.

He stood with his eyes open every night, with a pebble in his pink beak, and if the slightest alarm betrayed danger to those whom he guarded, he threw the pebble sharply into the water, in the middle of the white circle of the asleep. Awakening them: upon hearing the signal, the group would have fled in the darkness into deep avenues, to distant lawns, to some fountain in which gray statues were reflected, or to any other shelter known for its memory. And Bonhomet had watched them in silence, even smiling at them.

 

Why did not We Realize We Were Dreaming

 

Someone may say that there are also lucid dreams , that is, dreams in which the dreamer realizes that he is dreaming, but we agree that this is something that happens very infrequently. The truth is that we live most of our dreams in a totally realistic, experienced emotions of all kinds, like pleasure, fear or sadness, with the same intensity that we do in this reality.

By habit, perhaps, we like to think that there is only one reality: this one, in which we are awake, from which we disconnect a few hours at bedtime; Being the dreams a kind of alternative plane, a fantasy, that can only exist while we are asleep. But could not we say the same thing about this reality

Does not the reality in which we live awake is also a dream within another dream Think of the following:

Just as we awaken, we leave behind the reality of the dream, and notice the strange, the pleasant or the terrifying that has been, when we die we will not feel the same about this reality

I mean, if life is a dream, would not death be the awakening Perhaps when we die we will discover that this reality, in which we are awake, was full of absurd questions, beyond all logic, that we could not see precisely because we were immersed in it.

Because in the same way that when we dream we can not realize that we are dreaming, when we are immersed in real life we ??can not notice that something strange happens. However, the similarity between what we feel in dreams and our objective reality goes even further.

Stranger Dreams that you will have in Your Life

 

By definition, dreams are strange , but that is something we can only notice when we wake up. While we are inside the dream everything seems normal.
In this sense, we usually remember those dreams and nightmares that hit us the most – such as dreaming about falling, flying or being chased – but that does not mean that they are the most frequent.

In fact, these dreams are the strangest of all because they occur very rarely in the course of life, and so we remember them with pleasure, in certain cases, or directly fearfully, in others.

Speaking of strange dreams , we will then give an account of the 10 strangest dreams you are going to have in your life .

Dreaming with God:

The concept of divinity is usually represented in dreams by the act of worship, or by religious objects such as crucifixes, churches, etc .; But to dream of God , that is, directly with the divinity, is very rare.

However, it is very likely that we will dream of God at least once in our lives, and even talk to Him or be recipients of an important message. Of course, this is not a question of faith but of symbols. To dream with God, it is necessary for the subject to bring together two special characteristics during the period of his life in which the dream passes: great inner peace and a very high level of narcissism. It is, we said, a very strange dream and rarely repeated.

Dreaming with an ex-couple.

Dreaming about an ex-partner does not mean you want to go back with her. In general, it is a strange dream that occurs only in stages of major changes in the subject’s life. In this sense, the ex-couple in dreams always appears as inviting us to return with her, or at least as a desire factor to long for the past, precisely because the changes we envision in the near future cause us some restlessness, in most Cases, or directly fear.

Such dreams are stranger in men; That is, it occurs more frequently in women. In any case, the ex-couples in dreams are something like a restore point in our operating system, A reference in the past to which we seek to return when the future frightens us

Dreaming of an accident.

To dream of an accident , at least for Sigmund Freud , always represents a kind of punishment that the dreamer imposes in response to his doubts regarding the road that is transiting in the life. And the more terrible the accident in dreams, the more serious is the lack that the dreamer needs to purge.

Other specialists, like Carl Jung , maintained that the accident does not represent the punishment, but to the error that we have committed. In any case, it is one of the strangest dreams there is, Because we are rarely willing to assume a similar degree of guilt over a fact that we have played.

Dreaming of someone who is dead.

Everyone has dreamed of someone who is dead , although in fact it is a strange dream , extremely rare, which occurs rarely in life.

In dreams nothing is what it seems to be, and death is a characteristic example. Rarely is there represented the physical death of someone, but this type of dreams symbolize the term of something important in the life of the subject: a couple, a job, etc.

If the deceased person who appears in dreams is energetic, and sometimes even vengeful, The dream expresses our frustration and dissatisfaction with a timely aspect of our life that we have lost or terminated.

Is it Still a Dream if Two People have the Same Dream

 

The meaning of dreams is already a rather complex subject in itself, but if we also add other exceptional variants such as shared dreams ; That is, when two people dream the same , then the answers need the same degree of complexity. Is it still a dream if two people have the same dream

This disturbing question corresponds to the novel: Do androids dream of electric sheep? (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) , By the great sci-fi author Philip K. Dick ; And then we will try to answer it.

To explain why two people have the same dream we must analyze in depth the nature of shared dreams . We are not referring here to simple details in common, or synchronies, but to two people who have exactly the same dream .

The first point of interest is to examine the dynamics between the two people who have dreamed the same thing . Apparently, this is independent of the relationship between them. It can occur between two people closely related on a physical and emotional level, as well as between individuals apparently distant in these aspects.

It is also important to mention that it is not the same to have a shared dream with a friend than to dream of a couple . In general, the most common thing is to dream the same with an ex-partner , or between two people who have been linked sentimentally.

There is a substantial difference between shared dreams and the possibility of entering into another person’s dreams . In the case of shared dreams the dream is the same , only two people who experience it.

Everything seems to indicate that the dreams of two are much more frequent than could be speculated. There is also another interesting fact in this regard: The main argument of shared dreams , that is, the plot plot of the dream, often has nothing to do with the two people who are dreaming the same , but with a third, who may or may not appear as an active character within the dream .

To dream of one another does not mean to have a shared dream : A can dream about B, and B dream about A, with the same dream scenarios and motives, and not be a shared dream , but a telepathic dream . The difference is subtle, almost imperceptible, but there it is: in telepathic dreams there are only two people, the two dreamers, and the dream conflict does not include a third, as we will see later.
