Customer Question

I'm recently divorced. My ex has moved on rather quickly and has met someone/moved in with her. This morning I dreamt that my Dad, who is deceased, hugged my ex. My ex then came to the door of a bedroom that I was in a knocked on the door. When I answered he looked at me but didn't say a word. His girlfriend was behind him so I decided to introduce myself. When I tried, she turned into a completely different person. She walked away. I then spotted her down a hallway entering another room. When I entered I walked towards her but she changed again into a different person.
I'm wondering what my dream means. Why would my Dad hug my ex, why would my ex look at me and not say a word, why did his girlfriend change into a completely different person twice? Please help me understand my dream. Thank you

This is a puzzling dream, so intriguing to work with. I'll need to ask some questions to pursue what your dream characters mean to you. The order of the scenes normally represents a dream-like psycho-logic.

Was there an initial setting for your ex's appearance BEFORE your deceased dad hugged him? (If so, what was there?)

How did your dad feel about your ex when he was alive? Was the bedroom you were in familiar? Or did it remind you of any bedroom you know? Being in a bedroom is an intimate place where he comes to see you (politely). The changes in his girlfriend are unusual elements, so they are meaningful. Was the first GF an accurate image of the woman he's moved in with? Or did she seem like someone else you've known or seen? If you imagined a character for her, what would her personality and behavior be like?

Now it appears that your attempt to introduce yourself causes her to transform--how was the new image DEFFERENT from the first one? And how might her imaginary personality change?

Did the interior of the house remind you of anywhere in particular? How did you feel there--familiar and/or comfortable? or unfamiliar and perhaps uncomfortable?

What would you imagine that your motivation could have been for following her to the further room? Curiosity? Territoriality? How did she change this time? How did her third image differ from the first and second?
