What are romantic dreams all about? Are they a forecast for a real romance on the horizon or is it just the subconscious teasing you with a dreamy possibility of a romantic interlude?
The subconscious stores our most memorable romantic experiences and recreates them when we need a dose of happiness. It is likely this man hungered for someone who made him feel as desirable and passionate as his ex-girlfriend did. In this case, the subconscious was creating a onetime reunion to awaken him again to his passionate side. In this way, the dream served his hunger for an exceptional romance in which he was dancing in the arms of someone who made him feel sexy and alive.
Many dreams of romance, sex and partnership are wish fulfillment dreams. They seem to compensate for the lack of sexual activity in the dreamer's life and fulfill a deep psychological need for intimacy and love. The desire for love and intimacy is intrinsic to human nature. For some, this desire is on the surface while others repress their desire for love and sex, perhaps because of conditioning and a disconnect from their own biological and emotional needs. Most often dreams of romance excavate these needs and fulfill the desire of the human heart, feeding the soul what it craves most – a love-mate.
Soulmate dreams are quite common, but seldom are they recognized as such until finally one day the two psychic lovers make their way into each other's lives. It is only later that they remember the fact that they had been dreaming about each other. Sometimes the connection remains in the psychic realm for years before destiny brings the two together. And in rare instances the soulmates never meet, yet continue to appear in each other's dreams from time to time over the years.
There is a particular spiritual aura to a soulmate dream that is extraordinary. Even in the ethers the rendezvous raises the dreamers' consciousness and they sense and feel a spiritual power between them. The dream can be very romantic, ecstatic in fact. Soulmate dreams demonstrate that souls are bonded at unseen dimensions and experience a whole other life as twin-lovers in the upper dimensions.
It is the psychological task of every individual to make the masculine and feminine conscious and to unite them. Therefore, dreams of a marriage or partnership with a mysterious complement are commonplace as the soul strives and struggles for balance. Differentiating a dream about the sacred marriage from a soulmate dream or wish fulfillment dream can be difficult for the untrained dream worker.
But in general when the character resembles no one the dreamer knows from their life, seems to possess complementary characteristics and is involved in the dream activities and enactments as a sidekick, the dream is likely a sacred marriage dream. -PQ
