Dreaming of your past reflects unresolved past issues, perhaps divorce, a bad relationship, or an ex-issue. It can also represent unrealized desires in your present life which triggers you to remember those old golden days when all seemed okay and much alive, unlike your present unpredictable life.
For example, if you are in a marriage that is currently undergoing all kinds of drama which makes you unsatisfied, this can trigger a dream about your wedding day when things seemed at ease and love was at its climax, unlike your present-day where you have to deal with the kids and other extra responsibilities which deprive you of the moments you used to enjoy with your spouse.
Also, if you find yourself dreaming of your past, it means that your mind is reaching out for something that you have lost. It can also mean that you are reaching out for a part of yourself that you haven’t grown up to. It may also mean that your mind is trying to overcome a challenge. Try to figure out how the dream relates to your waking life.
A great majority of people dream about their past, and their dreams are often repressed desires that are not yet fulfilled. When dreams of the past come to you, think about what you haven’t done or where you haven’t been.
The past is a safe place for your unconscious to explore because your past is already complete. It’s also a place where you can learn from your past and make plans for the future. You can use your past dreams as a catalyst to create a better future. If you dream of your past often, it is time to make some changes in your life.
Dreaming of your past divorce.
Dreams of your past usually mean that you’re reflecting on your life, and you’re likely to find yourself thinking about your past, in general, more often. If you’re constantly thinking about your past, it could mean that you’re trying to relive the glory days, or it could mean that you’re trying to resolve past issues that you’re still carrying around.
Therefore, dreaming of your divorce represents unsolved issues in the marriage you lost or unrealized goals you had before the tragedy of divorce. It can also reflect on the slow emotional healing process as you try to deal with your present challenges.
Divorce is undoubtedly a hard process, and it creates lots of stress and trauma. Most people who are going through a divorce feel overwhelmed, confused, and stressed. However, there is one more thing that a divorce can bring to a person – the ability to find themselves and achieve their goals, which they never thought they could achieve.
It sounds crazy, but it is true. When you are going through a divorce, you tend to reevaluate your life and your goals. And when you do that, you notice that you can do a lot more than you thought.

What does it mean when you dream of your previous house?
Dreams of your previous home could be hard to interpret, especially if the house was not a place where you experienced many significant events. While dreaming of your previous house may simply just be a way to interpret your subconscious, a dream of your previous house could also be a way to communicate your desire to have what you had previously in your life. Dreams of your previous house could be a way to communicate that you are not in the place you want to be in your life.
There is a theory that your subconscious mind stores memories and events that you are not currently aware of, so when you have dreams of your past, they are real memories that you have stored. If you dream of your previous house, it means that your subconscious mind is trying to tell you something. It may be that you are thinking too much about the past, or you are unable to move on from the past.
Either way, if you are having dreams of your past, it is telling you that you need to start thinking about your future. If you are not ready to move on, your subconscious is going to continue to provide you with dreams of your past, until you realize that you need to move on.
The dream may also symbolize a form of bondage and stagnation depending on the setting.
Biblical meaning of dreaming of your previous job.
A recurring dream of your previous job could suggest that you are not moving forward in your life and you are not willing to change your current situation to face new challenges. It could be an indication that you have not overcome unresolved issues leftover from your former job. It could be that you are not setting goals, or you are not setting the right kind of goals.
It could also mean that you are not taking action to achieve your goals. You are not determined enough to take risks and reach your potential. You have a difficult time dealing with change and you do not like to venture out into uncharted territory.
The dream may also mean you are not satisfied in your current job, perhaps due to the working condition, the salary, and the distance from you’re your loved ones. That’s why you keep dreaming of your previous job or business.
Dreaming of your childhood.
If you dream of your childhood, it means that you want to go back to the past. There is something in the present that you are uncomfortable with and you are thinking of the good old days. You may be at a crossroads in your life and you need to make a decision.
If the childhood you dreamt of was idyllic, you need to let go of the past and focus on the present. If the childhood you dreamt of was cruel, you need to let go of the present and focus on the future.
You are also dreaming of your childhood because you are not growing emotionally and you need to find a new way of thinking. You may be stuck in a routine; you may be thinking of a previous relationship or you may be thinking of how good or bad things were.
If the dream persists for no good reason, it might probably mean that you were bound while you were a kid, and that’s why you are not making any significant progress in your life no matter what effort and strategies you put in place. Please consider dedicating this dream to God for destruction, and seek deliverance.
What does it mean when you dream of your previous school?
Let’s say you have a recurring dream where you are back in your old school. You look around and the scenery is familiar, and then you realize you are in your old school. You see your old teachers, the desks and chairs, the books, the chalkboard, and the bulletin board. You think to yourself that they sure have not done anything to change this school since you were here last.
You walk down the hallway and see the same posters that were up to when you were a student. You start looking for your old locker, and when you find it, you open it up and see that it is still full of the same books and papers that were in there when you left.
People have different experiences when they dream of their previous schools. For some, it may be a happy memory of a teacher who inspired them, for others it may be about the people they met during their school days, and for others, it may be about the school subjects that they liked more. A school is a place where we spent a very significant amount of our childhood days.
It is a place where we learned a lot of things that are essential for the development of our personality. We made friends, experienced our first love, and learned how to deal with bullies. Therefore, it is not surprising that dreams about school are vivid and detailed. They are about experiences that were a significant part of our lives.
Dreaming of your past perfect love.
Dreaming about your past can be a very insightful way to understand your present. If you’re dreaming about your past perfect love, it indicates that you may still be holding onto a hurtful past experience. You may also be holding onto a goal in life that was never realized.
Perhaps you stopped pursuing a dream and now you are feeling stagnant. Your dreams are trying to speak to you. They are your subconscious mind telling you to take action and pursue a goal or a past love.
The dream may be very peaceful. You dream you were in a relationship that you thought was perfect, and you were never going to break up. The dream seemed so real, and you don’t remember ever feeling that happy before. You woke up content, but you remember thinking to yourself, “this isn’t real.”
You tried to wake up, so you could go back to the dream, but you remembered that it was only a dream and that you were awake. You wanted to go back so badly because in the dream, everything was great, and in real life, things aren’t always as great as they seem. You wanted to go back to the dream so badly that you literally started to cry.
Dreaming of your dead spouse.

Biblical meaning of dreaming of your past relationship.
Divorce and separation are among the most painful experiences people have to go through. It is an emotional roller coaster and it is never easy. People have a hard time accepting the fact that they are no more a couple and they have to live separately. The feelings of loneliness are overwhelming.
Most people, who have gone through a divorce, say that they have never felt more alone than when they were in the midst of their divorce. There are always a lot of unresolved issues between the two people. A lot of people tend to confuse dreams of their past with those of their future.
They believe that their dreams of the past reflect the future. But such dreams of the past do not necessarily reflect the future. The dreams of the past can also reflect the present circumstances.
For example, if a person is leading a happy life with his or her partner and they are living in a beautiful house, they might dream of their past as a couple, where they were unhappy and were struggling to make ends meet.
This might not be the case when a person is struggling in his or her relationship, is unhappy and does not see a future with their partner, and is leading a life that is less than ideal.
Dreaming about past trauma.
If you dream about your past, it can be a reflection of things you are currently going through in your life. The past is often a forgotten memory, but it seems to be resurfacing in your dreams as a way to remind you of a time you are going through now. These dreams can reflect things in your current life that make you feel as though you have come full circle.
We all dream about things that we have lost, people who have died, and people who have left us. Sometimes it is about a person and sometimes it is about a place. People who have suffered a traumatic event in the past will often have dreams about it, as a way of dealing with the issues that resulted from the event, such as rape, domestic violence, or bullying.
Dreams can also be used as a way of dealing with issues that you are currently going through. Dreams are a way for the brain to ease the pressure that is building up inside. A dream is a way for your brain to “let off some steam.”

What does it mean to dream about your past self?
If you are dreaming about your past self, it usually means that you need to take a step back and look at your life. You are feeling unsatisfied and you want to return to the past. It is possible that you are looking for something you have lost, or you are trying to solve some problem, or you are trying to escape from something. You may be feeling stuck in your current situation.
This dream is telling you that you have lost something important in your life, and you need to find it. You need to look in the past to solve your problems and to find what is missing in your life. Maybe you need to take a step back and try to solve some issues from your past. You are dreaming of your past because you are in a rut in your present life.
Dreaming of someone who hurt you in the past.
If you’re dreaming about a person who has hurt you, you may be struggling with anger, resentment, and a sense of betrayal. The dream may be a reminder that you need to work through these feelings.
Perhaps you feel like you can’t trust people or that you can’t trust yourself. If you’ve had this dream repeatedly, there’s a chance you’ve been harboring these negative feelings for a long time and haven’t dealt with them.
Therefore, dreaming of someone you know that hurt you in the past, symbolizes how you do not want to let go of a certain situation or person in your life. This is because you are still hurt by what happened and how they treated you.
The dream is telling you that you need to move on. Let go of the past and do not hold on to those feelings. Since you are dreaming of this person, it shows you are still thinking about them. You are not over them yet. You are holding onto something they did to you.
However, if you dream of a person you do not know but in the dream, it’s clear they hurt you, then it represents someone you have not forgiven. Someone who you feel has wronged you in some way. You need to forgive that person. Forgive them and let go of it.

Biblical principles on dreaming of your past.
The word of God encourages us to remain focused on the present, and pay no attention to our past as there is little or nothing we can do about our past life. Paul teaches that we should press on toward achieving the goal/mark which Christ has set before us to attain.
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
The unconscious mind reflects past events, experiences, and emotions in our dreams. A dream may be the only time that you have a chance to discuss and process these issues. When we are unable to do so in our waking life, they manifest in our dreams. If you are having a dream that repeats, then it is likely you are experiencing some type of problem in your waking life that you have not addressed.
Take a moment to reflect on your past and present life, and consider if you have unfulfilled goals or unresolved issues. If so, try to identify what they are. Now is the time to begin to work on these issues, so that you can be happier and more productive in the future.
