I have a recurring dream of my husband talking to another woman. I get jealous, beat him up, break up with him and then he leaves me. They are different girls in each dream, mostly ones I don't know. I don't see him having sex with them, just flirting and then he ends up leaving with her. It’s always like that.
Sometimes I dream that he just disappears. In that version I keep looking for him and he's nowhere to be found. I am alone in the dark, or in a lonely place.
Main Life Issues:
We're a happy couple and he always spends his spare time with me.
It’s a story of how someone’s reaction to another’s normally innocent actions leads to in a drastic result.
Cheating: Being untrue to some commitment, belief or standard.
Another Woman: In this dream – a rival, an adversary.
Flirting: A light interaction that can turn serious and lead one to stray from ideals or standards.
Husband: Can be a metaphor for the dreamer’s own strengths.
What it Means:
On occasion dreams hint at the future, but since you are secure in this relationship, let’s check out the symbolic meaning of this dream.
The story shows someone overreacting (jealous, beats up for flirting), which creates a chain reaction that spirals downward.
Most dreams are about you, and an opposite sex figure (your husband) can symbolize your own strengths. The story suggests you may overreact to something and doing so makes you lose strength, feel confused and depressed. The question becomes: To what are you overreacting? It can be about looks, fears about talents or health, relationships with family, place in society, or whatever. If you recognize roller coaster emotions around an issue, that is what the dream is addressing.
Bottom Line: Once you recognize the issue, you can decide to accept the situation rather than overreact to it and slow or stop the downward spiral.
