Maybe she’s trying to apologize.

@TexasSpringBride:  no idea. In a weird way I hope you have the dream again and maybe you can actually hear her. Have you ever tried controlling yourself in your dreams? Just kinda tell yourself in your dream to really really listen…maybe you can hear her.

I agree. She may be trying to reach you and apologize. I agree with the PP – try to take control fo your dream. Before you go to sleep suggest to yourself that you will not be afraid of this person, that you will try to listen to what she is trying to say. If you find that you can talk to her in the dream, tell her that you appreciate what she is saying, that you have a new happier life now and that it is time for her to move on.

I don’t think it’s an apology, I would guess at, in a super natural way she would be pleading you don’t hide her from the children, that when your husband adopts them they will be forever cut off from her family, on a sub conscious level I would say that it’s your own sub conscious knowing even though your ex didn’t deserve a relationship with them, perhaps you are/were letting his actions (understandable) take your kids away from their biological grandparents. Even though you did have valid reasons, when we know someone is hurt by our decisions it’s natural to feel guilt.

the jist of it, I think these dreams are stemming from the upcoming adoption and replacing your children’s biological family. I understand why you did it but its a hard decision to make that can weigh heavy on a person

How disturbing! I agree with PPs, maybe she’s trying to apologize? If you dream about her again and still can’t hear her and you can control your dream, you could maybe ask her to speak louder?

@TexasSpringBride:  play then! I’ve heard that when you dream of a death or passed love one or can mean your pregnant… If you believe that stuff. 


Therefore, I agree with PP that she’s trying to apologize!
