What Does It Mean When You Dream About Your Ex Spiritual Meaning

Seeing an ex in the dream is a common occurrence to many people. Here is the spiritual meaning of what it means when you dream about an ex.
After a broken relationship or marriage, it is not surprising that people dream about their exes. These dreamers often end up with mixed feelings concerning such dreams

I understand that it can be confusing why you keep seeing your ex in dreams, even when you have nothing to do with them anymore. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Your Ex Spiritual Meaning

Unfortunately, we can't select or determine the kind of dreams we should see. It just happens. But if you've been seeing recurring dreams about your ex—those dream have become disturbing—and you would want to stop seeing them, then read on.

Dreaming about an ex always leaves the dreamer with many questions, like:

  • Why do I keep dreaming about my ex? 
  • If I dream about my ex does it mean he misses me? 
  • When you dream about your ex what does it mean spiritually? 

If you saw a dream about your ex (which compelled you go search for its meaning), I'm sure you also have a similar question. Let's trust that by the time you're doing reading this article, you must have gotten the answers to your questions. 

Most dreams about exes are always neither a good nor bad omen. Such dreams are basically just an overflow of memories from a past relationship with the person. 

Except you saw a bad or scary dream that something happened to your ex, then we would say such is a bad omen. If you actually saw such a dream though, you should pray for them (even though they're your ex). 

Why Do I Keep Dreaming About My Ex

There are several reasons why people dream about their ex. We will talk about the major ones below:

1. They Formed A Soul Tie With You 

I've heard several people speak against the reality of soul ties. But soul ties is truly a thing; they does exist. 

Soul ties are knowingly or unknowingly formed in relationships for several reasons. Not all relationships has a soul tie that holds it together, but most do. Funny enough, the people in those relationships may not even know that a soul tie has been created. 

Even in ordinary friendships, a soul still can still be formed. The Bible tells us a story of how David formed a soul tie with Johnathan. 

1 Samuel 18:1 ESV
As soon as he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

This is just an example of soul tie formed from just an ordinary friendship. So if a soul tie can be formed from just ordinary friendships, how much more when it comes to relationships with the opposite gender? 

When people keep dreaming about their ex, there is this possibility that a soul tie was formed through their relationship, and they haven't broken it yet. 

2. You Have Been Thinking About Them

If you have been thinking about your ex, it is very likely that you will dream about them. Some people find it difficult to get over their ex. They occasionally miss them, so they keep thinking about them. 

So long you haven't gotten over your ex, you're going to think about them—even unconsciously. 

In such a scenario, the solution is to get over your ex. When you are able to stop thinking about them, then dreams about them will reduce till they stop completely. 

3. Your Ex Misses You 

If your ex still misses you, it means they are also thinking about you. Their thought projection towards you can trigger in your mind a dream of them. 

In this situation, you have no power over their thought process, so you cannot stop them from thinking about you. Hence, dreams of them may still occasionally show up. 

4. You Haven't Healed From Past Trauma

Some relationships can be traumatizing. After ending such relationships, you would have to find time to heal from the trauma. 

If you haven't healed from the trauma of a past relationship, you will occasionally dream about your ex. 

5. You Still Have Feelings For Your Ex

If you still have feelings for your ex, you are still emotionally attached to them. There's no way you will stop dreaming about them in that state.

If you still desire to get back with your ex, you are definitely going to continue dreaming about them. 

When You Dream About Your Ex What Does It Mean

Some people are often quick to assume that when they dream about their ex, it means they should get back together with them. But in most cases, this is just their feelings playing pranks on them.

Dreaming about your ex can simply point to the reasons why you dream about them, as I earlier explained. 

What Does It Mean When You Dream About Your Ex Getting Back Together

When you dream of getting back together with your ex, you need to tread with caution. Don't be misled to think that if you dream about getting back together with you ex, it means that they are the right one for you.

Decision to get back with your ex should be made based on whether or not it is the right thing to do. Are they good for you? That is the first question to ask yourself. 

It could be that they treated you well when you were in a relationship, but did you treat them right as well? The world doesn't revolve around us. If we know that we are not good for someone and we're not ready to be good to them, we should let them go.

Dreaming about your ex doesn't even mean that God wants you two to get back together, except God expressly said so to both of you.

Final Thoughts On Meaning Of Dreaming About Ex

Now you know that dreaming about your ex can mean several things. But it rarely means that you should get back together with them.

If you want to stop dreaming about your ex, you should be intentional about praying to break every soul tie with them, stop thinking about them, make sure you no longer have romantic feelings for them, and don't miss them.
