Why do I keep dreaming about my ex? It’s a spiritual message? Let’s find out!
Love is a beautiful thing.
Although it can get sour at times, it is still worth every emotional energy that is invested. Most times, it hurt badly that a breakup happens – most especially if you have a deep feeling of love for such a person.
There will be times when your mind will fantasize about your ex in different ways possible. It is normal for you to dream of your ex once in a while. However, while there is a psychological explanation for this, there can also be a deep mystery behind the things you see about your ex.
I have realized that the universe can speak to us through different means and mediums. If they can use inanimate objects to speak to us, then our dreams are a valid instrument of communication. Dreaming about your ex is a good medium of communication because it has a lot to do with your feelings. This type of dream is personal and will make a lot of sense to you.
In this article, I am going to reveal the reason behind the dreams you have of your ex. There is a message from the universe to you concerning your ex. At other times, it might have a lot to do with your past life. However, whatever it is, this article will reveal everything to you in much detail.
Why do I keep dreaming about my ex: The spiritual meaning
There are 8 different types of dreams you can have about your ex. Each of these dreams has different spiritual meanings, which relate to your life – most especially your love life.
From my experience with having such dreams, the universe can communicate with you concerning your love life, or concerning other aspects of your life.
Let us delve into this in more detail.
1) Dream about your ex calling you
This is one of the rarest dreams you will have about your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. This dream might not have anything to do with your ex. It has a lot to do with the past you are holding on to.
There is something in your past that keeps haunting you. There is a mistake in your past that keeps showing up in your life every time you want to take a major leap that will give you progress. This has been occurring constantly, and it has been bothering you.
The universe has shown you that dream to send a message concerning letting go of your past. Your past needs to be kept in the past.
No matter how terrible your past mistakes are, it is time to let go of everything and move on with your life.
Your ex is your past and if you realize that you are having dreams of your ex calling you, then it is a sign that you have put yourself in a position whereby your past can easily haunt you and stop you from making progress.
This needs to stop.
The progress you will achieve is going to come as a result of letting go of everything in your past. Look forward to a new life and approach whatever comes at you with confidence.
Therefore, before you begin to think of reconciling with your ex, you must realize that the dream you had was not for your relationship.
It is concerning the mistakes of your past and how you have allowed them to hold you down from moving on with your life.
If you want to truly make progress, then you need to stop your past from haunting you. Open up your mind to new possibilities and begin a new life from now. Once you open up your mind to begin afresh, the universe will supply you with strength and support.
2) Dream about your ex-boyfriend wanting you back
This is for females. Whenever you have a dream concerning your ex-boyfriend wanting you back, then this is the universe trying to help your healing process.
Most times, you will have such dreams when you just broke up with your spouse. You will have such dreams within 2-3 months after the breakup.
Whenever this happens, it is because you are not healing up as expected.
You are feeling down and pained because of what happened in your relationship. This pain has led to condemnation and you are feeling bad.
Furthermore, you might have been verbally abused by your ex-boyfriend before the breakup and this has stuck with you ever since. Well, the universe has come to help you by showing you this dream.
The universe has come to show you that you were the better person in the relationship and that is why you saw your ex-boyfriend want you back. This is to heal you. This is to take away every form of guilt you have been facing and this is to take away the fear of entering a new relationship.
The universe has shown you that dream to show you that the breakup was not your fault and you have nothing to lose.
After seeing this dream, you will be full of strength and a positive mindset to open up your heart to love knowing fully well that you are valuable and full of a good heart. This dream is to help you heal up from your past breakup.
3) Dream about a past love kissing you
When you have this kind of dream, it is a sign that the breakup was mutual. It is a sign that what happened in your relationship was not forced.
There is nothing you would have done. Stop nursing any animosity in your heart against your ex-partner. There is nothing to hold on to. Let forgiveness adorn your heart. This dream will not happen physically.
This is one of the dreams you will have whenever you are having difficulty healing up. I understand that going through a break-up can be difficult. I have gone through this a lot of times and I know what runs through the mind during this time.
Therefore, whenever you have such a dream, it is a part of the healing process that you need to go through. This dream will help you to forgive yourself and your ex-partner.
It will also give you the strength to move on with your life and find love elsewhere. Whenever you dream of your ex kissing you, then it is a sign that the breakup was mutual.
Another meaning of this type of dream can be tied to an unfulfilled desire. Dreaming of kissing your ex will make you wake up desiring to have such an experience. This is just like having a desire unfulfilled.
Therefore, whenever you dream of your ex kissing you, the universe is revealing the hidden secrets of your heart. You might have been feeling down lately without knowing the reason. Most times, it happens whenever you have a desire that has not been fulfilled. The dream is a sign of this.
4) Making love with your ex
This is what some people call wet dreams. Anyways, whenever you find yourself having such dreams, then it is a sign that you are missing your ex.
You are missing the best part of your love life. Having sex with your ex in a dream is as refreshing as having sex in reality. Therefore, your heart yearns for this, but the best way for you to enjoy this is by dreaming about it. Most times, our heart fantasizes about our deepest desires.
It is the same as dreaming of riding a flying car. This is what you desire, but it is far-fetched because it cannot be accomplished.
Therefore, the best place is to enjoy it in your dream. Whenever you dream of making love with your ex, it is a sign that you miss your past relationship and you want it back so badly. This might not be true of your ex.
Therefore, don’t go looking for your ex or begging for love.
Simply move on with your life and open your heart to loving someone else. Perhaps, you will be able to enjoy yourself much more with this person.
5) Your ex is with someone else
This is a hard dream. I have spoken with people who burst into tears when they work up from such a dream. Most especially if your ex was someone you loved so dearly.
There is going to be a moment of hurt when you wake up. However, you should not allow yourself to brood over this issue for long.
Whenever you see your ex with someone else in your dream, it is a sign that you have truly forgiven your ex for whatever they did to you and you have released them in your heart to move on.
It is a sign that you have made peace with yourself and truly forgiven your ex. Therefore, in your subconscious, you have released your ex. Although, you might still have feelings for him or her.
Therefore, this is the reason why you will feel pained when you wake up from such a dream. There is nothing wrong with the way you feel after seeing such a dream.
During such times, we can only rely on the strength of the universe to get us through the emotions.
This is what I tell those who speak to me when they have such dreams. Therefore, if you have ever dreamt of such, don’t take it the wrong way.
Out of the many people I have spoken to about this dream, I have seen the animosity they hold against their ex because they felt that their ex was cheating on them.
This is a wrong interpretation. It has nothing to do with your ex, it has a lot to do with your heart.
6) Your ex asking you to come back
Well, this is a dream that is meant to make you feel good. There is a way you feel important and valuable when you wake up from such a dream.
I have had experiences with this. You will wake up feeling like you won a tussle. However, the interpretation of this dream opposes the way you feel about the dream.
Whenever you dream of your ex asking you to come back, it has a lot to do with you. The universe is showing you what your hidden desires are.
You miss your ex and you want him/her back into your life. However, when you are done feeling good as a result of the dream you just had, the next thing to do is to reflect on the meaning.
The meaning of this dream negates the feeling. Whenever you have this type of dream, then it is a sign that you and your ex cannot get back together.
You might begin to contest against this because you saw the opposite of the interpretation. It happens a lot. The universe communicates to us in shadows at times – it takes accurate discernment to fish the meanings out.
It took some time for me to accept this reality, but I had to. I never got back with my ex after the dream.
Although it took a while for me to accept this fact, I had to develop the strength to move on. I am happy and fulfilled today. Therefore, when you have such a dream, convert the energy you are feeling at the moment into the strength to move on.
7) Marrying your ex-husband
This is good news. Whenever you dream of getting back with your ex-husband and eventually marrying him, then it is a sign that you are going to get back with your ex-husband.
This is good news.
The universe has granted you the desires of your heart. You will meet your ex-husband again and get married all over.
The break-up happened because there is a lesson you need to learn. Now that the lesson has been learned, it is time to get back together and grow a blossoming relationship.
In addition to this, whenever you dream of marrying your ex-husband, it is a sign that your ex-husband has not found another love.
Therefore, the chance of getting back together is high. Fate will bring both of you together again and your love will be re-ignited. This is a good sign and you should be happy about it.
8) Dreaming about getting back with an ex
Whenever you have such a dream, it is an indication that you are finding it hard to move on. It is okay to feel this way – most especially if you have planned your life around the person in the picture.
Whenever you have such a dream, the universe is showing you that you are finding it hard to let go or accept the fact that you are no longer together.
This desire might be buried under annoyance or malice. You might not find it easy to admit this.
However, whenever you have this dream, the universe is showing you the deep desire of your heart. You have to move on.
If you refuse to move on, it will affect other aspects of your life.
You will lose concentration while on your job, you will find it hard to relate with your friends, you will become socially backward.
The universe has shown you this dream to encourage you to move on. What happened was not entirely your fault. Therefore, accept the fact, forgive yourself, and move on with your life.
