To recall the feeling of sadness from a dream is a very powerful symbol. In fact if this and only one or two other key details is all you can recall from a dream, you could receive a wealth of information beyond some dreams with hundreds of symbols that don’t make any sense. Feeling sadness in a dream may be a wakeup call for you to identify and communicate these feelings in your waking life. If a relationship or a work situation is present with this feeling, then pay attention to those details and you will find the source of your sadness. You will also find the way out of it.
The message of sadness in a dream could also be simply that disappointments are a part of life, and that we need to learn from them in order to grow and move forward on our path. If you dream that someone else is sad, it could be that you are being pointed to someone else’s feelings. Maybe you are not noticing the feelings of those around you, or this specific person is unhappy at this time and is feeling ignored.
If a recent situation in your waking life with this person in your dream has made you sad as well, this dream symbol is a validation that you both are experiencing the same feelings at the same time. In some cases, sadness in a dream is a projection from your twin flame our soul mirror, and in this case another figure will be present in your dream as well. The sadness in your dream at this case would simply be you telepathically experiencing what your twin soul is simultaneously experiencing.
