Context Is Everything

When it comes to analyzing dreams about your ex, you must remember that context is important. 

A dream about your ex when you’ve just been dumped can mean something completely different than dreaming of your ex the night before marrying someone else. 

Make sure you consider the context when analyzing spiritual dreams about your ex.


Does It Mean You Want Your Ex Back?

Rest assured that dreaming about your ex doesn’t always mean you secretly want them back. 

Of course, if you DO want your ex back, it should come as no surprise that you dream of them. 

But if you know you don’t want your ex back and you dream about them, there are different spiritual meanings you can apply to your situation. 

We’ll explore each in further detail. 


Your Ex Represents Unfulfillment

The first spiritual meaning of dreaming about your ex is that you have an unfulfilled need in your life. 

Dreams are our mind’s way of processing and filtering out information and feelings in our waking lives. 

As such, dreaming about your ex can be your mind’s way of coming to terms with your feeling of lack that comes from a failed relationship. 

It doesn’t always mean that you feel unfulfilled in relationships. Be mindful of that. 

The general lack of fulfillment in your relationship with your ex can come into your dreams and represent unfulfillment in your financial life, your social life, or any other area that you aren’t exactly thriving in at the time. 


Your Ex Has Qualities You Desire

Secondly, dreaming of an ex could mean that they have qualities or traits you desire in a relationship. 

This is not the same thing as wanting your ex back, however. 

It’s possible to admire things about someone with who you have no desire to rekindle romance. 

When it comes to spiritual meanings, too, it’s possible that your ex is your soul mate, your twin flame, or otherwise a kindred spirit. 

You would feel pulled to this person and find many qualities that you might miss — even if you don’t want them back. 

If you DO want your ex back and you dream of them, however, it is probably a sign that you are spiritually connected in some way. 


The Dream Is A Warning

Again, the context of your dream about your ex is critical. 

If you have a dream that is unsettling or disturbing in some way, it could be a warning. 

In this case, your ex could either literally mean your ex — or they could symbolize something else in your life that you should watch out for. 

For example, if you have a dream where your ex is following you around, it could mean that you’re holding on to something from your past that is preventing you from moving forward in your life. 


You Still Have Feelings For Your Ex

Another spiritual meaning is, in fact, that you might still have unresolved feelings for your ex. 

Whether you “want” to get back with your ex or not, sometimes the heart wants what it wants. 

In your logical, rational, daily life, you can ignore these feelings. 

But in your dreams they become harder to escape. 

You still have full control over your actions and do not need to worry about making poor decisions based on your dreams. 

However, it is possible that dreaming about your ex means you do still desire them — at least a little bit. 


You Are Destined To Be With Your Ex

Finally, a dream about your ex could mean from a spiritual perspective, you are destined to be together in the future. 

It could be a signal to you that if you have broken up and still think there is a shred of hope in getting back together — your mind and spirit know that you should not give up. 

If this meaning resonates with you and you do, in fact, want your ex back, consider how you can use the law of attraction to manifest your ex back. 


A Quick Success Story For You

Before I go, I wanted to share a quick story that happened to my cousin a few years ago. 

So, she had a really bad relationship with her ex-boyfriend. He was doing the whole staying out too late at night thing. She’d find DM’s and messages to other girls. He wasn’t really acting like he wanted a serious commitment from her, so she broke up with him. 

She was single for a while and seemed quite happy. 

She’d date other guys here and there, and even started a new relationship that was going well. 

One day she told me she started dreaming of her ex and it had her really confused. 

She said she normally didn’t have vivid dreams and couldn’t really remember, but these were strong and powerful. 

She tried to ignore them and go about her daily business, but the dreams never went away. They wouldn’t come every day, but at least once or twice a week she kept dreaming of her ex! 

One day, she chose to check up on him just out of curiosity. 

Eventually, they wound up rekindling their romance. He apologized through words and actions for treating her poorly in the past, and ever since he has treated her like a Queen. 

They are still together and she is extremely happy. They are one of my favorite couples — seeing how hard their relationship was to where it is today! 

My cousin said if it wasn’t for those persistent dreams (and her paying attention to how they made her feel), she wouldn’t be with him now. 

She’d have missed out on the best love of her life! 

So, if you start dreaming of your ex, pay attention. 

It could be completely baseless or even act as a warning of something going wrong in your life. 

Or, it could mean you might be missing out on your perfect love story. 

Follow your heart. It won’t steer you wrong.
