People In Dreams You Have Never Met

Profile photo of KellyM KellyM (@kellah) 5 years, 7 months ago

hey guys, im just wondering what all you have to say on this.

Have you ever had a dream, where you meet someone, in your dream, but have never met them in real life? I keep having dreams with all complete strangers in my waking life, but i know them very well in my dreaming life. I am so confused as to why im having dreams about people i have never even met before. has this happened to any of you?

There is the thesis that we met all the persons we ever met in our dreams (so, it could be a man who sat next to you in a train ten years ago).

I have and have grown through my experience, although i think that these things are revealed by love of oneself and the selflessness we can demonstrate towards others, if there is trust there is a path towards greater consciousness. i am glad to have found this blog as to me these ‘people’ are travelers such as i am and have been privileged to meet them after many a difficult trial of conscious thought. you see the more we allow ourselves to give ‘up’ the more we are ‘carried’ beyond the senses of the body.

I remember reading that people we have never met, but see in our dreams are the people what we actually HAVE seen in real life and our mind has memorized it automatically, but we are those who haven’t paid attention on these details, because usually we don’t focus on that, but our mind does (for example just for a second, when walking on the streets). So that’s the thing why you are thinking that you haven’t seen them, but your mind says different. Through the dreams. Dreams – our feelings, thoughts.. That’s what I have read. Don’t have an idea is it true, but sounds believable. Hope you understand what I wanted to explain. I’m not native English speaker so perhaps it sounds chaotic. But I suppose that you got the main thought I wanted to say about. :)

I have come to believe in the multi-verse theory, that is the theory of alternate realities besides our own. For example when in this reality I’m writing this reply, in another reality I just read through the responses, or in another I never read this at all. With every possible outcome from every possible scenario/decision comes another alternate reality. So when it comes to dreams and all the strange people and places we see I believe an alternate version of our self has experienced it in their own universe and when various versions of our self are asleep at the same time our subconscious mind can connect and share what has happened to you in an alternate reality. Now I’ve read that the people are faces we’ve seen at sometime in our life and it’s being recalled in a dream. Ok, but then what about these strangers who I interact with and they have completely unique personalities? The abilities we possess feel so real yet we couldn’t possibly know the sensation? Unless in an alternate reality there maybe less gravity and we can fly, or maybe that stranger who feels like a soulmate may very well be your soul mate in another reality.

Hey :)

as far as I know, all these strangers in your dreams are people you have seen before in your life, that your subconsious brain remembers. However I can totaly relate to this. Usually these strangers just fill up my dream environment, but I also interact with them sometimes. In my opinion it is always fun trying to talk to them and asking questions about the unknown, such as fears or meanings of certain aspects in your life.

I hope I could help you in any way! ;)

My spiritual culture is Aboriginality, the Dreaming or Dream Time, but the Dreaming is about Creation, the mind to observe and process reality. Dreams don’t tell you anything, dreams are your mind processing information you already have.

I have another LIFE in my dreams! The SAME people  reoccurring in my dreams that I DON’T  know in real life  iIt’s very obvious that I know and have a relationship with them in my DREAMS. Last night I was hugging and kissing some guy that I’m  CRAZY about,  I could feel the love and connect to him in that dream . I’m totally confused by these dreams.

It is to my knowledge that our brain can form faces or people by mixing and matching features of everyone we have ever seen.  I have only been told this and can’t confirm it.  An example would be if you have ever seen someone’s face that you know in a dream with a different body. Personally I know this has happened to me before, I don’t know about anyone else

I had a dream about a person I don’t recall ever knowing or meeting. I awoke from the dream,stayed awake for a couple minutes and fell back asleep. The dream continued in a different location,but I was still with the unknown character. In my dream we knew each other very well..I can still see her face. But I’d remember meeting this person at least once in my lifetime. Maybe we passed a glance at one another once before..but like I said..I’d recall it

This actually happened to me with someone I met over the internet about a year ago. All I really remember is that it seemed like I was trying to have dreams and this guy was following me around despite every other aspect of the dream changing and we were chatting like we were old friends catching up after not seeing each other for awhile. I didn’t think anything of it until the guy mentioned that he visited one of my dreams and wondered if I remembered any of it. Anyways we agreed that we must have been friends out side of our current lives and our souls or whatever were catching up. Maybe its the same thing for you. It still trips me out to think about.

I read somewhere that people in your dreams are people you’ve seen in real life. Your subconscious remembers every person you’ve ever walked by, drove by, or just didn’t really look at but were there. So technically you have seen them before your conscious mind just can’t recall it :)

Hi I’m a scholar from Collin College and what I learned my class was Dream charcters are based off of the people you have met or the people you will meet in the future, that will make a deep impact in your life. The deep impact of my life is my proffessors at Collin. You can never get enough inspirational impact on your life. Dream Characters can resprent people, or animals. It is said they can also resprent  a part of our self and personality, but dream characters are also a part of Deshavu, and are also hard to understand sometimes. Which can also lead to prophetic dreams giving by God to inspire us or change are lives. By the inspiration of people of who we dream about.

All the time – I dream of people I have never met and places I have never been to.  Or have I?  And then, there is Deja vu. 

Have you considered a dream book? – They are fascinating.  As soon as you get up, write down the dream(s) you remember and don’t read it again until a month or so later – lovely surprises – lovely weavings of the mind.

As a Jungian Therapist, I would suggest to you that all those people are unknown or disowned aspects of your “Self”. Keep Journaling and exploring.

It happens very often thing is it’s usually a member of the opposite sex, maybe there a clue there, To be honest am not surethis happens occasionally.

maybe its a loop of intuition you keep falling into and someday you will meet them and the moment of deja vu might happen.

Not that I can recall, no. Why, have you had a guy in your dreams like that?
