Imaginary Girl (Relationships Dream)
Ive never posted a dream before.. but yesterdays was strange.
I had a dream that i had a daughter.. she looked just like the daughter of my ex..same age, same build, only slightly different.
Im pretty sure my ex was the mother, and she was stood in the background close by, watching us.
I began walking down the street with her and some weird guy.. then as we were walking, he picked her up and rested her on his shoulders, but a moment later, he dropped her and she landed on her head. I was furious and threatened him... there's a few blank spots after that, but i remember picking her up and holding her.. she held on to me tight and called me dad, and i instantly felt peaceful and happy... then my mind started to wonder... i started to think of my ex, and as i did, my mind began to pull into focus and i woke up feeling very disturbed at the feelings i had experienced, specifically the feeling when my imaginary daughter held me tight and called me dad.
I haven't shaken that thought all day long.

A dream where you are showing your affections for someone (the little girl) can represent your satisfaction/happiness with a relationship that is current at the time you had the dream. I do not recall you ever mentioning to me that you have any children of your own. If you do not have a daughter, then the daughter in your dream symbolizes the feminine aspect within yourself. Dreams about affection as in "giving a hug" to someone can indicate a need for more affection in your waking life. Dreams where the hug is being recieved from someone suggests that you need to let down your guard and allow your true feelings to show. It can also mean that you need to allow yourself to heal emotionally. A child or children in dreams, signify an aspect of yourself and your childlike qualities. Referencing back to the past trying to still satisfy repressed desires and unfulfilled hopes. Something you need to see grow and nurture. Something that to take some time off and cater to the inner child within. Another way to interpret the child in your dream is, the dream may be highlighting your innocence, purity, simplicity, and a carefree attitude. When saving/protecting a child in your dream signifies your attempts to save a part of yourself from being destroyed. "To see people you don't know (the weird guy) in your dream denotes hidden aspects of yourself that you need to confront or acknowledge." A stranger in your dream symbolizes the part of yourself that is repressed and hidden. If the person you do not know is a man in your dream, that denotes the aspect of yourself that is assertive, rational, aggressive, and/or competitive. Your ex appearing in the background or appearing can often just mean that something or someone in your current life is bringing out similar feelings you felt during that relationship with your ex, unless there is more than just a mere appearance of your ex in the background, then there would be more interpretaion to it. Since she only just appears in the dream, could be possitive feelings or more like alerting you to similar behavioral patterns in your current relationship. Perhaps finding yourself in a situation that you do not want to be in that makes you feel uncomfortable. If that's rings true to what is going on in your life during the time you had the dream, what you learned from that previous relationship may need to be applied to the present one so that you do no repeat the same mistakes. Dreams like this can be triggered by some major change in a current relationship and can indicate how far or not you have come from past relationships. Seeing an ex in a dream can also be a metaphore representing aspects of your ownself that you have cut out or neglected. "If these people are from your past, then the dream refers to your shadow and other unacknowledged aspects of yourself. It may represent a waking situation that is bringing out similar feelings from your past relationships." Feelings expressed in dreams can help people deal with complex emotions. Negative emotions tend to occur twice as often as pleasant feelings. "Emotions expressed in dreams is a way for people to act out their feelings which they would not normally express if they were awake. This provides a "safe" outlet for these emotions instead of letting them be pent up." You do not say much about where you are in the dream except for that you are walking down the street. The place the dream takes place can have signifigance to dream interpretations too. "When trying to decipher the significance of your dream place or surrounding, pay attention to the look and feel of the landscape. If it is a place you have never been to or seen, then ask yourself if you have been anywhere which brings about similar feelings or if it reminds you of another place and time in your life. Sometimes the places in your dream may also represent an idea or a person. Dreams in color or in black and white can have significance too. For example, a "Sidewalk". "To dream that you are walking on a sidewalk refers to your steady progress and direction in life. You may be moving on to new walks of life. If the sidewalk is cracked, then it signifies minor and temporary setbacks that are keeping you from getting to your destination. Your dream may suggest that you need to alter your course and make some changes in your life."
