How To Interpret A Dream When You Dream of Other People That You Know

Interpreting “Other People You Know” from Waking Reality dreamed in your dream using the Dreamtime Method

A common dream theme I want to interpret using the Dreamtime Method for you, is when you dream of other people who you know in your waking reality. Other people in your dream can be anyone you know or people who you don’t personally know celebrities, politicians, or anyone.

When people dream of other people in their dreams, they always want to insist that the dream is about the person(s) they are dreaming about and not themselves. Just the opposite is true!

Your DreamSelf Within creates your dreams as though every dream symbol in your dream is an aspect and ability of yourself. So in order to interpret your dream accurately and multi-dimensionally, you must do the same. When you dream about someone else in your dream, whatever you feel about the person(s) you are dreaming about interprets to mean that you are now exhibiting those same characteristics and traits comparably. This means that whatever you think and associate in waking reality with the person(s) you are dreaming about, they are then representing and symbolizing what you should be understanding you possess similarly within yourself.

I will now give you a dream where the dreamer told me what they felt about the other people in their dream. This is a good example of how to use the Dreamtime Method to interpret and understand “other people” when you see them in your dreams.

 Dear Dreamtime,

I dreamed that I was at a girl’s house (I am male), someone who I used to know in high school. She was my girlfriend at the time. She was very popular and fun with everybody, but I have not seen her in years. In my dream, my current girlfriend (in reality) showed up at this old girlfriend’s house and was extremely jealous. My girlfriend in real life is not the jealous type. Does this mean that my old girlfriend and I will be reunited? Please tell me what this dream means.


Dear Dreamer,

In this dream, your DreamSelf Within is communicating that within your current thinking and thoughts creating your now . . . you are at an old high-school girlfriend’s house.

Within each of us are two types of energy, male and female. Your “male energy” is that part of you within that is your ability to act in life and to take action. Your male energy as a dream symbol is always represented by the image/figure of a man or men in your dream. Your “female energy” is that other half of you within which is your intuition, the doorway to your talents, abilities, and creativity. Your female energy as a dream symbol is always represented by the image/figure of a female or females in your dream.

When you dream of other people that you know in waking reality, whatever you feel and associate with them is what you are looking at within yourself. In other words, it is like looking into a mirror. The other people that you are dreaming about in the dream are reflecting back to you the aspects and abilities of what you associate with them that you possess similarly within yourself. In understanding this, it means that the dream information being communicated to you in your dream from your DreamSelf regarding that person is actually about you, not them.

Using the Dreamtime Method, the normal, everyday understanding of a “high school” is a place to learn and be educated. The everyday understanding of a “house” is a physical place where one lives. Now, in your dream you are at an old high-school girlfriend’s house. You said that this girlfriend was very popular and fun.

Putting the above definitions and understandings together and then thinking as your DreamSelf does, this dream is communicating that right now you are learning and being educated (high school) regarding your own “female energy” within (as symbolized by your old high-school girlfriend, she being female.) The dream is saying that you should be looking at your own female energy within, your inner talents and abilities, just as you used to think of your old girlfriend’s. You said that she was creative, fun, and popular. You should be looking now at your own talents and abilities in the same way symbolized by you being at her “house” where the dream symbol of her house is representing you (a dream symbol of a house symbolizes the “Self” or you.)

In the dream, your current girlfriend shows up at your old girlfriend’s house and isvery jealous that you are there. The dream symbol of your current girlfriend is communicating/representing what you presently think and feel about your own inner creativity now. She represents the attitudes that you have about your own “female energy” within (your own talents and abilities) in your waking reality. She is jealous of your high school girlfriend in the dream. Your current girlfriend as a dream symbol is communicating/saying that within you right now, you want to learn to have more fun and enjoyment and think better of your creativity and self-worth (just like the high school girlfriend), but whatever it is that you are doing now with your talents and abilities (the present girlfriend), this situation is causing a conflict within your everyday living (symbolized by the emotions of jealousy in your dream.)

To get a better idea of what your DreamSelf is communicating in this dream, I would look at how you feel conflicted about valuing your talents, abilities, and creativity and having some fun with them versus what you are doing with them now. I feel that then you will have the answer to what this important dream is addressing.

Your dreams not only tell you what’s going on in your life, but as your own “multidimensional energy” from within attract into your next day and days after dreaming your dream, similar three-dimensional (physical energy) to provide the solution for whatever your dream is addressing. It is in this way that your dreams create your everyday, three-dimensional reality.

Understanding the above, I would look for the way (energy) in your next day(s) after dreaming this dream to help you to reconcile what it is you want to do now with your creativity versus what you are currently doing, so that you may have more fun and pleasure. And dreamer, this issue is very important because it is a life lesson you are learning (as symbolized by the dream symbol of “high school”). As to whether you and your old girlfriend will be reunited . . . well, as you can see by how I interpreted this dream, this dream is about you and your inner creativity, not whether you and your old girlfriend will get back together!

Please e-mail me back when you get this and let me know if there is anything that you did not understand of how I used the Dreamtime Method to interpret your dream. Thank you again for submitting your dream for interpretation and good dreaming!

Here’s the Dreamer’s response to the above dream interpretation:

 Dear Terri,

You could not have been more “right on” with this dream interpretation. I am going through what seems to be a mid-life crisis about my work. I am a highly paid professional, but not having much fun. I find myself daydreaming about doing something totally different, but always get pulled back into the reality that I couldn’t possibly do anything else than what I’m doing now (i.e. the conflict in the dream). I had no idea that the dream symbols in my dream could tell me this. I really thought this dream was telling me to look up my old girlfriend, but your interpretation makes perfect sense. I need your dream book to learn your method, quite interesting. Thank you!
