Is It True That When You Can’t Sleep You’re Awake In Someone’s Dreams?

On the other hand, many psychics believe that if you are unable to sleep chances are someone is dreaming of you. When a person dreams, he or she digs deep into his or her subconscious. When this happens a strong force within his soul or even his third eye chakra sends out a message to the universe.

Have you ever been so sleepy and tired only to be woken up in the middle of the night with the strange feeling that someone is thinking or dreaming of you? Have you ever had felt the presence of another person near you or beside you? Well if you have then you are not alone. Many people believe that when they cannot sleep, someone is thinking or dreaming of them. A Japanese legend tells us that if this unsleepful event happens, we are actively moving about in someone’s dreams.

The inability to sleep when you often feel really wiped out and tired can be frustrating. Most people would also want to know why he or she is wandering about in someone’s psyche. Can it also be that your soul moves out of your body and astrally projects to another person’s mind? Well I have often thought about it and recently I have come to find out that yes, it is true that when you can’t sleep at times, it maybe because that someone is thinking or dreaming of you (but sometimes you can blame it on too much coffee).

Why Can’t I Sleep?

There are many factors why a person cannot sleep at night. He or she maybe suffering from some medical condition that leads to inability to sleep. On the other hand, too much coffee, over exposure to blue light, extreme stress and exhaustion can lead to tossing and turning at night. Some people think too much at night and hence their anxiety prevents them from sleeping.

On the other hand, many psychics believe that if you are unable to sleep chances are someone is dreaming of you. When a person dreams, he or she digs deep into his or her subconscious. When this happens a strong force within his soul or even his third eye chakra sends out a message to the universe. This allows him to “send signals out”. Sometimes, when he or she dreams about a person, say you, he telepathically connects to you. It is basically like a cellphone call, it is a wireless connection but even if you are in a far distant land, he or she can connect to you. The mind and the psyche is very powerful and it can will things to happen and even subconsciously communicate with others.

Astral Projection When Sleeping

When you astrally project your soul in your sleep, you detach you soul and it now visits people and places.

When you astrally project your soul in your sleep, you detach you soul and it now visits people and places.

Many people have special gifts that they are not even aware about. They do not know that they can actually travel into space and time just by astrally projecting their souls. Unlike people who learn and practice astral projection, these people may not be aware of their gifts and leave their talents unattended. They often later on discover about it or just disregard it as just simple insomnia and remain sleepless for long periods of time.

When you astrally project your soul in your sleep, you detach you soul and it now visits people and places. Sometimes you can be beside someone and actively communicating with that person’s soul as you sleep, however you are not even aware of it. Discovering, harnessing or even at times, switching off this gift can help you take control of it. By willing your soul to stay put at night, you can have a more peaceful sleep. Astrally projecting your soul at night can even be dangerous so learning how to control this talent is at utmost importance. You may employ breathing techniques and meditation to prevent your soul from leaving your body.

How Do I Get More Sleep?

Calming your soul and allowing all the thoughts and worries to be removed from your mind while you are awake helps you sleep better.

Calming your soul and allowing all the thoughts and worries to be removed from your mind while you are awake helps you sleep better.

I know how it feels to be sleepless at night. I know the feeling of being so sleepy and tired but the frustration of being unable to get some Zzzz’s. I have often had some struggles with sleeping myself. On several occasions it was because of too much coffee that I have had but on others it was because I really felt that someone was thinking and dreaming of me. There are also times that I have very strong lucid dreams that make feel tired as I sleep.

Meditate and Exercise

I know that this maybe already be a cliché but meditation is the key to almost all psychological and sleep problems. Calming your soul and allowing all the thoughts and worries to be removed from your mind while you are awake helps you sleep better. By meditation, you can address your issues with your heart and soul. This also allows you to be at peace with yourself which then, allows you to shield your sleep time from others intruding it. On the other hand, a good exercise is a great way to remove stress from the body. It also helps body circulation which thus help you sleep better.

Make peace with others

I know that it maybe difficult to make peace with others. There are times that we are unable to personally communicate with them because of time and space. Some of them may already be gone from this plane or they maybe just too far away from us. We can cosmically make peace with them. Envision them in your mind. Ask their forgiveness or tell them that you love them. The peace you offer them is not just for them but also for you. By asking for forgiveness, you remove the negative bonds that is tied to you.

Close your Third Eye before you sleep

When your Third Eye is open, it can start showing you projections of the past and future. This can be really disturbing to some. Do a meditation focusing on your third eye, Think of it open and use it to see. Now try to slowly close it and see nothing but peace. Repeat this exercise before you sleep every night for a more peaceful sleep. You may decide to keep it open for more vivid dreams but if you are a light sleeper then it may help you to turn it off once in a while.

Keep your spirit in you at night

You must find out if you are astrally projecting or if you have just an over active subconscious mind. If you know that you are actually time traveling astrally, then you can start to focus on keeping your spirit within you at night if you wish to sleep more fully. First is you need to imagine that there is a cord between your soul and your body. Imagine that this cord is really, really long. Now imagine you pulling in the cord and tucking it into your heart. Now take a deep breath and see you soul rest within you body. Allow your mind to relax. Repeat this exercise every night to get better sleep.

Final Thoughts

In many folklore, the inability to sleep is normally linked to your psyche or someone thinking or even dreaming of you. This legends connect our sleeping to a deeper journey that we take. Humans normally sleep about 1/3th ot 1/4th of their lives. Being awake in someones dreams can often lead to anxiousness and tiredness in your own sleep. Techniques such as meditation, yoga and deep breathing can help you relive your sleeplessness. You may also opt for some herbal teas and aromatherapy to get a good night’s rest.

    I have been having strange things happen to me and I’ve never found the exact words to explain it but you just did in this whole article I would like to talk further about this because I am interested and I would love to know and get help please if you wouldn’t mind I would sooo sooo so much appreciate it, I really thought I was just starting to just think these things but it’s true.

  2. Michael on 28/07/2017 at 2:03 am

    I have been spiritual for some time, and had a lot of really crazy things happen to me. I reliesed that most of it had to do with this. I fall asleep at night and sometimes I find things are different when I wake up. Sometimes events in history change. when I was beginning to awaken my soul I was having trouble. I found my self in dark places I never relised, and there was something inside of me with a large red head and a tall read body. Not until recently did I relies that it was 3 minds connected sleeping in one. I learned the name of the soul and body of the one who’s mind I am in. It is me another male and a female all connected in this body, and in this mind. I relise that this female has three souls one of which is the eldest Fate the other two are mates of both me and the other male who’s mind we are sleeping the name of her two other souls I Have not learned, but I learned that the names of the souls of the one who has us in his mind is Lucifer and Jake. Jake being the mate of the wolf inside of her, and my souls Michael and Luke. Luke being the mate of the Dragon inside of her. I wonder if there is a way to pertinently remove my self from this to free my souls and my mind from this so he can not use me in my dreams. If anyone has any ideas that are more indeapth I would apreachate it. I don’t think the common yoga and mediation can competently free my self from this.

      Hi Michael, I’m so sorry for the very late reply, but I would recommend that you contact a trusted spiritual advisor who works with entities or spirits, and get them to help you with this. Do be wary as there are many fake people about, but with time and research or through recommendations you can find someone to help.

      If you are from the uk or from Austria I can recommend someone.

      Hope you have already made progress with this <3

        Cleanse your house of negativity. Use Sage. Spiritual Bath. Then Bless your house. READ PSALMS 91 EVERY NIGHT BEFORE BED!! If the dreams become more vivid use Palo Santo. Repeat!! MOST IMPORTANTLY YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT GOD / UNIVERSE IS TAKING CONTROL TO REMOVE THE EVIL! You may have to do this many times.

        • StormJewel on 15/06/2019 at 7:10 pm

          Thanks for your great advice!

        • Sophia on 17/06/2019 at 11:22 am

          I agree with you jbutterfly. This is so true and real. It’s crucial to commune with God in cleansing away evil spirits. And hey nothing is impossible with God. Evil has no power over any of us unless we allow it. Evil spirits can be broken in the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus Christ. Several times I have encountered evil spirits in my dreams and in my bedroom but I have overcome them by calling on God while in the dreams, or as soon as I wake up I pray. I have felt evil spirits move or touch my legs lightly in my blanket, while I was awake or attempting to sleep at night and I rebuked them by sighting bible verses or calling on God. Sometimes I have even resorted to raising my hand to God in prayer. I even turned lights on. This has made the spirits go away. Since two days ago I don’t feel those spirits moving in my blankets anymore.

          At one point I was so frustrated I thought someone could have died in my bedroom, perhaps in the past and were restless and unable to leave this world. But I spoke out loud that they have nothing to do with me and I have not wronged them in any way, after all I don’t even know them and they don’t know me. I prayed God’s grace be with them and them to where they would be resting.

    Once my auntie died I have been able to see things before and after they happen and I actually had a drummerbody experience when I seen myself step out my body and I made objects move in my head and when I talked to a pshychiatrist they told me portigiest so I don’t know bout every time somethings abt to happen I dream abt it like three to six months before it happens it’s kinda scary but cool

    • Rahel on 02/03/2020 at 4:53 am

      I dreamt my stepdaughter phoned me and she was crying and distraught. I woke up and felt upset then the phone actually rang and it was my stepdaughter crying and very upset that her partner had left her and was flying out of the country back to his home country.

      • Random on 06/11/2020 at 12:54 am

        I had something like this happen to me one time the beginning of summer in 2019.My great grandfather had been in the hospital for a while and one night around 2 am I had been sleeping and just woke up randomly.I couldn’t recall the dream, I had just a terrible feeling in my stomach and felt like something bad had just happened.I get up and walk into my mothers room to find her on talking on the phone, she then turns to me and tells me my great grandfather had just passed.

  5. Rayonna Hale on 22/03/2018 at 12:13 pm

    Was awakened by a vivid dream about a man that I have been in love with for 10 years and after I checked my Facebook Messenger it appeared that he had been active 8 minutes before, this was at 4 this morning. It was a dream that he finally kissed me as we’ve not dated only best friends because of 13 years age difference I being older. Had been instant messaging this week as he just returned from Europe . Should I ask him if he was up because of adjusting to the time change ?
    What’s your idea on that one? Thank you thank you!

  6. Vinay prasad on 14/05/2018 at 9:05 pm

    Is it true, that really we can’t fall asleep when someone dreams about us?

    • StormJewel on 25/05/2018 at 10:06 am

      Many people believe this to be true. In the ancient times, it was said that if you are unable to sleep, you are awake in someone’s dreams. But I feel that there is much reality to this. Energy pulls in energy and if one person is contemplating on you, then it may cause you to feel a surge of energy from them.

  7. Sophie Somnusson on 03/09/2018 at 2:05 pm

    I’m awake right now, and I was really tired this morning and earlier tonight, but now I can’t sleep. And I don’t drink coffee at all, what’s going on?

  8. Skylar on 15/03/2019 at 10:17 pm

    This was a good artlcle, but my REAL question is, can YOU keep someone from sleeping at night if YOU YOURSELF are thinking about them?

    • StormJewel on 20/03/2019 at 6:22 am

      Well, when you think about someone at night, yes, you can keep them awake. Basically you are sending them vibrations and your psyche’s string is pulling on theirs. So yes, you can keep someone awake if you think about them at night.

  9. Jennifer Sansbury on 02/05/2019 at 11:43 am

    My great grandmother be dead for about 40yrs. I had a dream about her that she was alive and all of my family was visiting her our grown children and all. This is the first time I ever dreamt about her. Now I have a very sick aunt which is my grandmother daughter
    Could it be someone is trying to send me a message.

    • StormJewel on 22/05/2019 at 3:49 am

      Hi Jennifer,

      Thank you for sharing with us about your dream.

      We’d love to help you out with this.

      Please do order a reading from our site so we can further assist you.

    • StormJewel on 15/06/2019 at 7:12 pm

      It could well be, or it could just be that you are thinking about your family. But it may even be that your grandmother is trying to contact or that the lines of ancestry and contact have become clearer in this time of need. I hope that your sick aunt feels better xx

  10. Vikas on 30/07/2019 at 11:41 am

    It’s been 4 months and I’m unable to get sleep peacefully and if somehow I fall asleep than suddenly between 3am to 5am The process breaks and it awakes me. In last 4 months I’m unable to sleep and till now.

  11. Ella on 26/09/2019 at 10:30 pm

    Why would anyone dream about me

    • StormJewel on 07/10/2019 at 3:38 am

      Because they are thinking about you. Because they have strong feelings for you.

    • Sheila on 03/03/2020 at 2:17 pm

      I be every where. I even dream that I had outter body dream I was at someone house sitting on there sofa his girlfriend didn’t see me but he did .I said to him u can see me he said yes. And i left and woke up. I have premontion dreams. Ppl I never seen before..An ex that I haven’t been with for 12yrs.I go place I never been before.

    • Katya zzz on 24/03/2020 at 3:39 am

      I usually think of my crush at night and I can’t fall asleep, and my family doesn’t go to church or have a bible at my house so we got no clue how to whoosh away evil spirits and astral project or anything like that.

  12. Krish on 26/02/2020 at 10:42 pm

    It’s actually scary. I have dreams about events that will happen up to one week in advance. Although the dreams are far fetched, the real meaning/problem are clear enough for me to see. Technically, these dreams are helping me know what to expect, and tbh it’s pretty cool.

  13. Naya on 28/02/2020 at 6:44 am

    What’s the third eye? But the rest of the article was fantastic. A lot of people in my family are interested in spiritual things so they will find this interesting!

  14. Bella on 15/04/2020 at 2:26 am

    Last week I was going abt my day and my a childhood friend that moved, I think around 4 years ago, popped in my mind randomly. Do you know of any reason why that could be because I forgot abt him over the years.

  15. Siarah on 20/05/2020 at 7:30 am

    Its scary becaues i dreamed of a breakup in my dream and about 1 month later it happend its just so weird~

    • Archibald on 18/06/2020 at 8:07 am

      Um, siarah, that’s why they say that God speaks to us through dreams..hope u know that..
      God was trying to show you what was going to happen in the near future, and it was all upon u to rebuke it. Unfortunately, you didn’t…
      But that has to teach u something,… Things first happen in the spiritual world before they get manifested in the physical world….
      So, next time u dream, hope u will know the right thing to do…

  16. Archibald on 18/06/2020 at 7:58 am

    Um, Sophia, u just really need to call upon the name of Jesus, and all those evil spirits will flee.. Try it one day, you will be thankful later.

  17. Ramisa Maliha on 17/08/2020 at 8:01 am

    I love sleeping & whenever I get time then I sleep.I have no sleep problems.But sometime really I can’t sleep.And nowadays I’ve noticed that whatever I’m predicting that gonna be happen soon is really happened in my life.Even my mom is astonished noticing that these things I’ve discussed with her before that something like this is gonna happen and now it really happened.I’m very scared of this.But I’ve also noticed that these things do not happen always.It’s like a power which comes for a few days & then goes.I’m waiting for reply.I wanna know if it’s a normal thing or not.

    • StormJewel on 06/10/2020 at 4:45 pm

      Yes its normal that you will sometimes be more strongly connected to your gifts. Sounds like you could benefit from a teacher to help you to ground yourself, which will make it less scary and help you to tell when its your intuition and when its your mind. If you don’t have access to a teacher why not try some online grounding meditations. Blessings! <3

  18. senora on 30/08/2020 at 9:40 am

    HI! I have a problem… Each day I dream about a boy in my school and he lives next door… Does this mean anything???? I dream that he sits in the front bench in class, where my string and bored and sleepy teacher is bawling…

    • StormJewel on 06/10/2020 at 4:43 pm

      Do you have feelings for him? If not it might be that you he has feelings for you. Why not mention that he was in your dream? (maybe just tell him about one time in case he freaks out 😉 )

      • Toby on 03/02/2021 at 1:41 am

        I have crush on this girl in my class and I’ve been having dreams and thinking of her alot. She said she thinks about me alot too. And we both have been having trouble sleeping, do you think this could mean we are thinking of eachother?

        • BOB on 27/04/2021 at 4:04 am

          I feel you i have been have weird things happening to me like how i have been dreaming of someone and then i wake up go to the bathroom go back to bed but that´s the thing i don´t actually go to bed i just lay there until i can go back to bed and it kind of freaks me out because as soon as i wake up my dream was really and i see that person unless like it were like my friend i would have to wait to see them but it turns out to all be the same like the setting, people, and even what they were doing! And same it was my crush that i´m around a lot.

        • Toby supporter on 30/05/2021 at 6:11 am

          Go for it toby

  19. Riley on 27/04/2021 at 4:09 am

    But this kid that is a boy i´m around is cute but shy and i dream about him but sometimes i don´t sleep at all is that a problem

  20. Isa on 26/08/2021 at 10:55 am

    A few days ago I was ready to sleep I closed my eyes and I can’t fall asleep. its been a few hours that I couldn’t fall asleep. I finally fell asleep. I’d wonder why I couldn’t sleep. I drink very little coffee in the morning. Anyway, I was dreaming and someone I know was on my mind. I didn’t see him in my dream but he was on my mind when I was dreaming, anywhere I look in the dream they pop into my mind it like I’m being reminded of them. I even dream I was at a gathering and I ended up thinking/having thoughts on him. It’s strange that this one guy I know mostly appears when I’m at a beach in my dream. Every time I see that person in my dream we were never far away from each other and we end up being being next to each other or in front of each other. 5 or 6 months ago I’d wake up more than once with someone on my mind. At night I’d barely think about them. I do think about them but not completely before I sleep. They weren’t in my dream but I wake up with them on my mind.
