If you and a friend aren’t on speaking terms, but you keep having dreams about them, there could be a deeper reason as to why you can’t get them off of your mind.
In fact, some people have reported the other person actually having similar dreams around the same time.
It begs the question…are you guys meeting up in the dream world? Possibly!
Having dreams about people can reveal a lot about what you’re experiencing with or around that person in your waking life.
If you keep having the same dream about an old friend, you may need to dive deeper into the meaning of the dream.
There could be more to the dream than you had originally thought!
In this post, we will be going over the different messages that the astral realm may be trying to share with you if you keep seeing the same person in your dream.
The Deeper Meaning Behind Seeing an Old Friend in Your Dreams
While you may not feel inclined to dive into deep dream interpretation if you see an old friend in your dream once, the thought might cross your mind if you keep having the same type of dream over and over again.
There have been many people who claim to have had this experience and this is what they’ve found!
This may not have been the first thought that you had when you woke up in the morning, but having a dream of an old friend could be showing you that you feel exhausted with your current reality.
This is especially true if the friend that showed up in your dreams is from your childhood.
The astral realm could be reminding you of people that made your inner child feel comfortable, excited, and when you lived in the present moment.
Sometimes as adults, we lose sight of what makes us light up from the inside out.
If the person in your dream made you particularly happy, this could be a sign from your spirit guides, angels, and ancestors in the spiritual realm to incorporate more time for hobbies and activities that bring out the child in you.
There have been many people that report having a dream about arguing with an old friend, which can hold a completely different meaning.
If you find that in your dream you’re actually not handling the argument very well or the dream depicts you throwing a tantrum, this could indicate that you may be acting unfairly in your waking life.
If you find yourself in a conflicting situation with someone, this could be a sign from the dream realm that you know that you could take a more mature approach.
Consider who you are arguing with as well — do you really care about this person?
Have they been a dear friend in your waking life?
If so, your guides could be warning you to be a little more gentle with how you handle them and their feelings during this disagreement.
As mentioned above, the most obvious meaning of dreaming of an old friend could be your desire to reconnect with them.
Even if you haven’t seen them in years, having a dream like this could be an intuitive hit to reach out to them.
There are certain people that we all just feel tied to.
You may be surprised that when you reach out that they have some exciting news to share with you.
There’s also the possibility that they may just need a little support and you’re the right person to give that to them at the moment.
If you receive messages like these in your dreams, don’t hesitate to follow up with action in your waking life.
How to Expand Your Dream Interpretation Skills
There are a few things that you can do to better understand your dreams if you have been really active in the dream realm lately.
First, it’s helpful to know why so many wacky images may show up for you when you’re sleeping.
In your waking life or what we all call “reality,” our conscious mind rules what we’re able to perceive and sorts what we have the capacity to process at the moment.
Many times, emotions get pushed to the side so that we can “function” in our reality without becoming overwhelmed.
However, the subconscious mind is always running in the background, storing all of those emotions, signs, and symbols that don’t get processed in your waking life.
When you finally rest, your conscious logical mind also rests and this lets your subconscious mind take over for those few hours.
This is the perfect opportunity to allow those emotions to flow through you, revealing many emotions and messages that could potentially be healed in your waking life — that’s if you pay attention to what’s being revealed to you.
The best way to catch all of those subtleties is to keep a dream journal near your bedside.
Right when you wake, try to write down all of the thoughts and details that you can remember about your dream.
You’ll be surprised as you push yourself to recall what happened in your dream that more subtle details may come to the forefront.
Paying attention to who was in your dream, how you felt, and the setting of your dreams could reveal many more hidden messages than you originally picked up on.
Overtime, you’ll develop a stronger ability to recall your dreams and receive the many signs that are being given to you all the time!
There are certain physical things that you can do to stimulate your dreams as well, like drinking mugwort tea (a natural herb that is said to help increase awareness during dreams, stimulate lucid dreaming, and increase psychic sensitivity) or placing crystals beneath your pillow when it’s time to sleep.
A crystal that’s popular for dream and crown chakra stimulation is amethyst!
