If I dream about my ex does it mean he dreamed about me?

Is it possible for people to be connected in dreams? And if so, what do they mean?

If you’re someone who just recently dreamed about your ex, I’m sure you have some questions.

After all, most of the time, dreams are not exactly what they seem.

So is it possible that they dreamed about you, too?

If you want to know, then keep reading! Because in this article, we’ll dig into the possibility of having a shared dream with your ex.

Can you share a dream with your ex?

The quick answer: Yes!

Dreams are our path to spiritual realms that reside under the physical world we know. In dreams, the past, present, and future are happening together, as well as all possibilities we can imagine.

So of course, when you and your ex tap on that spiritual energy, you’ll be able to see each other in dreams.

But does that mean that when you dream about your ex, he has automatically dreamed about you, too?

That bit is a little more complicated.

You see: despite dreams having its own psychological field of research, they don’t work on the same rules as that of our scientific, logical world.

Dreams can be omens, glimpses into the past or future, symbols of hope, messages from the afterlife… or they can be nothing at all! Just figments of our sleeping minds.

So, while it’s not impossible that you share a dream with your ex, there are 4 important factors to consider first:


How often has this particular dream happened to you?

Is it the first time you dreamed about your ex? Or has it happened multiple times before?

If it’s the latter, then it is possible that both of you are dreaming about each other.

But if this is the first time you’re dreaming about them, you don’t need to worry yet. For now, try to observe if it repeats. Then, you can proceed with considering the next factor.


Where does the dream take place?

Are you two in the same place in all your dreams? Or do you dream of different places both of you are familiar with?

If the answer to at least one question is “Yes,” then there may be a lingering spiritual connection between you two.

Dream spaces are very important indicators of your current psychological and emotional state. They tell you where you are positioned in the design universe, in contrast to your geographical location.

So settings shared by you and your ex can tell you where you both are.

Are you both in a garden in the country? Maybe in the desert? Or in a cafe in the middle of an urban landscape? Are you both enjoying each other’s company during sunset at the beach?

All these things have spiritual meaning which can tell you whether or not you’re in the same place as your ex.

Existing spiritual dream connection

Remember the spiritual connection I mentioned earlier?

It’s kind of in the same class as the red string of faith or the Greeks’ concept of finding your other half.

One of my gifted advisors told me that we can have multiple soul mates in our multiple lives.

And sometimes, some people get bigger fractions than others.

When things end between you and one of your soulmates, and the dream connection still remains, then something happens.

Your souls will do their best to still maintain the connection.

And that’s the reason why you’re still seeing each other through your dreams.

This may seem romantic for some people. But if you’re decided to move on from your ex, having this unsevered spiritual dream connection can pose a lot of problems.

For starters, the connection you have in the spiritual realm will hinder any new connections you try to form.

And if that happens, then you’ll be blocked from potentially meeting people with bigger fractions of your soul.

Severing a spiritual dream connection can be messy, though. So if you want to do it, I suggest asking the help of a gifted adviser.

I’ve been through this once before. And I spoke to a psychic myself after being caged in a spiritual connection through dreams with an ex.

The gifted spiritual advisor I spoke to at Psychic Source helped me go through the process of cutting that connection without doing much damage.

In no time, I was able to feel like myself again.

They gave me so much valuable wisdom about the power of dreams.

To be honest: I’m still skeptical about most psychics, but the ones at Psychic Source are the real deal, and I can personally attest to that based on my own experience.

In a love reading, a gifted advisor can tell you whether or not your dream connection with your ex is harmless or not.

And they can also empower you to make the right decisions when it comes to your life.


Are you and your ex still in contact? If so, how has that affected you emotionally?

While you think your random catch-up with your ex is harmless, it may have affected your spiritual connection in one way or another.

Their sudden presence in your life may have triggered memories and emotions. And this, in turn, can reactivate their presence in the dream plane.

When this happens, they’ll have access to the connection you once shared with each other. And it’s highly possible that they may have dreamed about you, too.

If this is the case, then it’s best to talk to your ex again about this. That is, if you want to completely end this chapter of your story with your ex.

Try to settle things that haven’t been talked about before. Tell them how their visit is affecting you. And then communicate what you want to happen after.

But if this reemergence of a spiritual connection is something you’ve been hoping for, tell your ex that as well.

See if you’re both on the same page. If you are, then that’s good news. If not, then you have to seek help from a gifted advisor so you can cut that connection.

Because keeping it will just affect you negatively in the future.

Should you stop the dream connection you share with your ex?

If you fit all the classifications above, then you and your ex are telepathically connected through dreams.

This means you both have access to a line of communication that is spiritual.

When this happens, you’ll have a certain level of awareness about your ex’s thoughts and emotions. And if left unchecked, it can affect you in ways that are detrimental to your overall well being.

If this telepathic dream connection is unwelcome, then you risk being spiritually controlled by the other person.

They may not know it consciously, but the fact that they can communicate their thoughts to you can influence the decisions you make in your waking life.

According to research by Ullman and Krippner, dream telepathy may not be as far-fetched as people think.

In the research, they proved that a certain degree of communication is possible through dreamscapes.

The thing is: The messages received by the other end may be eerily close to what the sender intended. But somewhere along the line, details get distorted.

So if you and your ex have this level of dream connection, there is no saying how it may affect the both of you in the long run. To be safe, it would be best to be careful with it by not letting it continue for too long.

How can you stop dreaming about your ex?

If you and your ex still have clear feelings for each other and want to try things out again, this may not be for you.

But if you decided that it’s detrimental to you spiritually, emotionally, and mentally to dream about your ex, here’s what you should do: seek help from a psychic.

As you know, when it comes to love, things rarely go as smoothly as we’d like them to.

Sometimes, we love someone and it doesn’t work out. And that’s part of life.

But there are moments when even upon deciding that we want to end things, something inside our soul has other plans.

This can pose complications when your breakup is messy and you want to get over it. Or if you’re currently in a relationship and can’t afford to be confused about your feelings.

If this is you, I recommend speaking to one of the gifted advisors over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier.

They’ve been incredibly helpful in the past when I’ve needed guidance on my love life, and they’ll certainly be able to help you with severing a dream telepathy with your ex– if that’s what you really want.

Whether you prefer to chat online, or jump on a call and speak face-to-face, you can get clarity on this situation right now.

Other reasons why you’re dreaming about your ex

Sometimes, though, dreaming about an ex may not be caused by a dream connection at all.

Instead, it may have been triggered by other reasons which are still spiritual, but involve less intrusive connections.

Below is a list of other possible reasons why you’re dreaming about your ex.

Try to see which one fits best with your situation.

1) You’re missing them

One of the simplest reasons why you dreamed about your ex? You miss them.

Maybe you’ve been single for some time now. You’ve tried out dating other people. But nothing seems to be clicking.

Every attempt at a new relationship fails immediately.

And now, you’re craving how easy and familiar things were before.

This is a very normal thing that happens to a lot of people. It may not necessarily mean they also dreamed about you. But it does tell you a lot about yourself.

What you can do is try to figure out what exactly it is about your ex that you miss. That may shed a light on what you should look for in your next relationship.

Or maybe you can message him again if that option is still available.

2) You’re craving something from your relationship with your ex

In relation to the first point: Maybe it’s not really your ex you’re missing… but something in your relationship.

Maybe it’s the times you went out to walk in parks. Maybe it’s the surprises. Maybe it’s how you both make fun of other lovey-dovey couples while you banter like kids.

The presence of your ex in your dream can be a symbol of something else.

So take this into consideration as you interpret the events in your dreams.

And whatever it is that you miss from your relationship, try doing it on your own. You can be surprised at how much more meaningful and liberating that experience can be.

3) If you’re in a relationship now, you probably need some space

If you’re currently committed and you dream about your ex, then maybe your dream is trying to tell you something about your present relationship.

It is possible that the dream is not really telling you much about your ex. But more about yourself and how unhappy you’ve been.

Are you feeling caged in with your current lover? Aren’t you able to hang out with your friends as much or do things on your own?

If so, then maybe the presence of your ex in a dream may be telling you this:

You need to ask your partner for some space.

This space can take on the form of so many things. It can be a couple days of vacation with your friends, a night alone, a trip somewhere far away, a momentary pause in your relationship, living separately… or it can mean a breakup.

Try to see what feels right for you.

4) You’re experiencing the same problems with your current lover

Another reason why you may be seeing your ex in your dreams? You’re recognizing the same patterns of mistreatment.

If the dream you had features you in an argument with an ex, then maybe the issue is something more psychological.

It is possible that past problems with this ex of yours are being repeated with your current lover.

But some part of your brain doesn’t want to process it yet, because, for the most part, your partner is decent enough.

The problem here is that you are projecting the issue towards another person.

It can be a form of defense mechanism. A way for your brain to think that you are not in the same bad situation as before.

But it’s important here to be honest with yourself. Are you actually seeing the same patterns of issues in your current relationship?

If yes, what do you want to do about it?

Communication is key in this situation. Do your best to open up to your partner about this dream of yours, and how you feel like it’s caused by something in your relationship.

And then solve the problem together, if you get the chance.

5) You’re lonely and you saw your ex in person recently

If you’ve been by yourself for some time, it is easy to crave for what you used to have.

This is something that most people do. And that’s why we fall into the trap of calling up an ex over and over again.

And when you get the chance to see your ex in person again… of course, emotions will get reanimated.

But it doesn’t necessarily mean that your ex dreamed about you as well.

That is, unless they tell you firsthand or if it’s been confirmed by your psychic.

Otherwise, try seeing it for what it is: A need for connection.

What you should do is open yourself to new possibilities. Maybe have a friend set you up with someone. Ask a gifted advisor for a love reading about where your romantic endeavors will lead.

Or if you don’t want to commit yet, try dating apps.

You are free to do anything in your power to alleviate loneliness.

Just make sure it’s not at the expense of your own peace of mind.

6) You are being shown something that could’ve happened to the two of you

Another spiritual reason why you dreamed about your ex: The universe is showing you what could have been or still could be.

Now, this is not enough to keep your hopes up just yet. Premonitions like this are more for your awareness than anything.

When this happens to you, it is best to get all the information you can from it before you make any rash decisions.

If you want a completely personalized explanation of this situation and where it’ll lead you in the future, I recommend speaking to the folks over at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier on. When I got a reading from them, I was blown away by how kind and genuinely helpful they were.

And how knowledgeable they are about interpreting dreams.

There is so much you can interpret from dreams that sometimes, it’s hard to know which answer is the real one.

But the psychic who helped me was so credible and trustworthy that I now sleep with a lighter heart.

Not only can they give you more direction on the meanings of your dream, but they can advise you on what’s really in store for your future.

Final words

Dream connections sound romantic when you first hear about them. But sometimes, this level of telepathy may not be what it’s painted to be.

Before you let yourself reach out to an ex-love through dreams, make sure you are first equipped properly with how to handle them.

Or maybe see other reasons and spiritual meanings behind your dreams. Because I’m sure you’ll be able to find an explanation for yours before you get to something so deep and serious.

Because otherwise, jumping into dream telepathy can easily be a dangerous path to take.

So before you go there, do some reflection, ask your friends if they went through the same things, get help from a spiritual expert…

And as for your love life, don’t let a single person become the center of your entire world.

You are allowed to keep dreaming of someone better.

Can a gifted advisor help you too?

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.

In just a few minutes you can connect with a highly intuitive psychic and get tailor-made advice for your situation.

I was blown away by how kind, empathetic, and genuinely helpful my psychic was.
