When we hug someone in our dream we are often expressing or releasing some sort of unconscious emotion that have been pent up within. Hugging contains a hidden metaphorical message entwined between these two energies.
Depending on who the dreamer hugs will automatically change the meaning – a symbol that changes if you are hugging your ex, a dead loved one, a crush, or even being hugged from behind.
