    A Dream About Someone Unexpected Might Not Mean What You Think It Does

    July 13, 2021 | Women’s Health Online

    In this Women’s Health Online interview, Humantold therapist Christina Jeffrey delves into dream theory and why certain dreams might not represent what you think they do.

    Sometimes our dreams can lead to an overwhelming amount of questions, instead of the relaxing deep slumber we’re used to. 

    In the article, Christina Jeffrey (LMHC) shares what dreams about several different topics mean—explaining that we must understand what a dream is first in order to understand why we may dream about someone. She also discusses a study that found “a dream is the equivalent of a data dump between the hippocampus (your brain’s browser) and the neocortex (the memory),” explaining that “dreams are the hippocampus clearing the browser for the day, prepping your brain for the next day.”
