What are the most popular themes in dreams, and what do they mean?
DreamsMaster: If you’re still in contact with your ex-husband and his girlfriend, the dream could be your intuition picking up on signs that she sees you as a threat and in fact may be trying to drive a wedge between your ex and you.
If you’re not in touch with the two of them, then the dream can be seen more symbolically. For example, the motive you project onto your ex-husband’s girlfriend might actually be your own subconscious desire to “kill” or eliminate that old relationship from your life. You may also be projecting your own subconscious rage onto the dream image of the girlfriend, allowing you to protect your image as the passive victim rather than an unacceptable image as the hostile aggressor.
Here are some questions to ask yourself, that may help point you in the right direction as far as what message the dream is trying to send to you:
- Do you feel threatened by the relationship between your ex and his girlfriend?
- Are you harboring resentment toward either or both of them?
- Do you need to bury the past in order to move forward in your life?
