Dreams can be fascinating experiences where the weird and the wonderful occur. When we wake up from our dreams it can be easy to just laugh them off as insignificant, however, there can sometimes be a deeper spiritual meaning behind certain dreams that we have.
One common dream that many people experience is the dream of a crush hugging them. Today, we are going to be looking at the symbolism behind this type of dream and what it could mean for you in the coming days, weeks, and months.
Spiritual Meaning Of Hugging Your Crush In Your Dreams
1. You dream about what you desire
The first obvious point to make about the meaning behind dreams about you hugging your crush is that it is a sign that you dream about what you desire in real life. While conscious ‘dreams’ are meant to replicate this desire, subconscious ones can vary.
If you have a crush though, then it is likely that you are interested in intimacy with them and this hug in your dreams is a manifestation of this desire. In other words, this is a wish-fulfillment dream.
2. You seek reassurance and comfort
Dreaming about hugs in general is a sign that you are somebody who feels neglected in real life. Perhaps your family members aren’t the most ‘touchy-feely’ but everyone can do with a hug now and then.
The fact you are seeking a hug from your crush shows that you might be lacking a certain level of affection in real life and your dreams reflect that. The dream of your crush hugging you could be used to encourage you to become more loving with those closest to you in real life.
3. A sign of impending good fortune
When you dream about a hug from an old crush it can be a sign that good fortune or good luck is coming your way very soon. This is particularly the case if this scenario plays out in a positive dream. It doesn’t have to mean that you are pining for your former flame, but it shows that you are a mature person who can still be friendly and affectionate with people who you used to have something more serious with.
This type of dream means that good fortune is coming your way because, for those who believe in spirituality, karma looks fondly on those who show personal growth and maturity. The sign of hugging your former crush is a reflection of exactly that.
4. A sign of impending doom
On the flip side, if you have a dream about hugging your old crush and the dream comes across more like a nightmare then it could be a bad omen for what is about to come in your life. After all, nightmares in general will leave you with negative emotions spiraling around your mind.
You clearly haven’t yet got over what happened with your previous crush hence why any dreams about them are now fulfilled with negative thoughts and energies. This bad energy will likely seep through to your waking life if you don’t figure out how to get over them quickly.
Use these nightmares as motivation to get to the bottom of why you’re struggling to get your old crush out of your mind.
5. A sign that your relationship needs to end
If you have a crush while you’re in a serious relationship then it’s already a bad sign for that relationship. However, if you’re dreaming about your current crush then the signs are even worse – it’s time to end your relationship.
You may already know that you need to do this in your heart but the anxiety of actually ending it is holding you back from doing what is necessary. Not only are you hampering your own happiness by being with someone you don’t want to be with, but you also aren’t being fair to your current partner. Sometimes the passion and attraction in relationships just naturally fizzle out, it’s not the end of the world.
Take this dream as the motivation you need to overcome your anxiety and end your current relationship.
6. A sign that you aspire for unreachable targets
If you are dreaming about hugging your celebrity crush then it could be a signal from your subconscious mind that you are setting yourself unachievable goals in your personal life. If there is a kiss involved in the dream, in addition to the hug, then this point is even more relevant.
The number of people who even end up meeting their celebrity crushes, never mind going on to hug, kiss, and be intimate with them is so minuscule that it isn’t even worth considering.
This scenario playing out in your dreams could be a sign that you are perhaps aiming too high for something in real life. Maybe you are an athlete who is trying to set a new personal best but what you’ve tasked yourself with is impossible.
Alternatively, maybe you are applying for jobs that are currently too far out of reach. Don’t worry, we aren’t telling you to stop being ambitious here, but perhaps you should set yourself realistic goals for the time being until you are ready for these jobs. This should bring you more success in the short term and ensure that you avoid the feeling of relentless rejection.
7. A sign that you should seek out new opportunities
If you are dreaming about hugging a stranger that you barely recognize, but you find attractive in the dream, then this is a sign that you have a brand new crush. This new crush will have seemingly appeared from nowhere but the meaning behind you hugging them already can’t be understated.
This is a symbolic message that you should make a bold decision in your life and seek out a new opportunity or a new beginning. This may be in terms of a new friendship or relationship or a new house – either way, the universe is telling you that you need a fresh start in one part of your life.
Being spontaneous with big decisions can seem daunting but the results of this dream should be used as a metaphor to show that happiness and joy can come from searching out new opportunities and going for them with both hands.
8. A sign that you need to overcome your insecurities
Often, people will dream about things that they want to happen in real life. If you are one of these people and are dreaming about receiving hugs from your crush then it could be a sign that you are insecure about certain things in your life and that you need a hug to act as a shield against these insecurities.
It’s important to remember that regardless of what you feel insecure about, you are unique and that you need to embrace the things that make you the person you are instead of getting down about small things that aren’t worth worrying about. Overcome these emotions, boost your self-esteem and self-confidence and you will feel much better for it.
9. A sign that the answer to your problems could be in the past
If you are dreaming about receiving a hug from a childhood crush specifically then your subconscious is focusing on your past for one reason or another. The most likely reason for this is because the answer to the problems you are going through in your real life may well be found by looking to your past for answers.
You may have experienced something important growing up, during the same time that you had your first childhood crush which could be the key to finding the answers to what you are looking for. Additionally, it could even mean that you have unfinished business with this person.
10. A sign for you to stop being jealous and move on
If you are dreaming about a crush hugging you as a hug goodbye then it could be your subconscious telling you that it’s time to let go of that person and move on to someone new. This will particularly be the case if this person has been your crush for a long time or if the person you have a crush on is already in a happy relationship.
Dreaming about this scenario is your subconscious mind telling you to let go of the jealousy and frustration surrounding this person and their relationship and to just be happy for them. Once you accept that nothing is going to happen between the two of you, you will be in a better position to move forward in your life and potentially start a new relationship with someone else.
As you can see, the context of these types of dreams is hugely important when it comes to determining the symbolic and spiritual meaning behind them. We hope that by going through our list of possible meanings you will find the dream most similar to the one you have experienced and figure out what it could mean for you in real life.
