Break Up Thoughts: If I Dream Of My Ex, Does That Mean He’s Thinking Of Me?

We’ve all had our share of break ups … and they make us completely psychotic – at least for a little bit.

Initially in a break up, you’re thinking the most terrible thoughts. What are they doing? Are they with someone else? Do they miss me? Will I hear from them ever again. We drive ourselves absolutely crazy! At the end of the day, the answer to these questions don’t matter, because guess what? You’re broken up – and it’s called a break up, well, because it’s totally broke, or you’d be together.  BUT … what if you’re having dreams about your ex non stop after the break up? Does this mean it’s some sign that you are actually supposed to be together and they are thinking of you? Put down the Google and let us have a quick talk.

Before we go into our advice, we researched dream experts to see what they have said when it comes to having dreams of your ex.

According to exemplore:
Why you’re dreaming: Intimate relationships often bring up past pains and hurts that cut right to our core. It is important to repair the damage before we attempt to move on to a new relationship. Truly processing our thoughts and feelings about the break-up allows us to acknowledge our pain, become more self-aware, and leave the past behind as we repair ourselves and move towards a more positive and fulfilling future.

According to dreamstop:
If you have recently gone through a breakup with your ex, there is a good chance that they will visit you in your dreams. Dreaming about your ex after you have broken up does not mean you are meant to be together. Usually, it means your subconscious is trying to clean up some of the past issues that you might have towards this person. Dreaming about an ex can also say that you have certain unresolved feelings or issues towards this person that you haven’t dealt with. If they are constantly in your mind and your thoughts throughout your waking state, chances are you will have dreams about them at night.

According to HerInterest:
Why you’re dreaming: Maybe your ex boyfriend had a certain quality that you absolutely adored. Maybe he knew how to make you laugh really well, or maybe he just knew how to snuggle you just right when it’s incredibly cold outside. Whatever it may be, you might just be yearning for that one certain quality in a person- not the actual person himself. So think about it: is there something you wish you could find in your current relationship or future relationships that you miss?

According to Dreamstop:
Why you’re dreaming: Lack of closure can lead to an ex being stuck in your mind, making it difficult to move on. Whether it is six months or 10 years later, the emotions you experience are all the same. When we have those unanswered questions in our mind, sometimes our subconscious mind will try and find closure inside of a dream.

So in short, it is completely normal to dream of a recent ex, because you’re still thinking of them! Just because they are in your dream, doesn’t mean they miss you. As spiritual as we’d love to be – be cute – not psycho. While they may still have feelings, we suggest giving it some time. Once you process the break up and get things back on track in the emotional department, we guarantee these dreams become rare – or stop.
