Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Emotions are often distorted in dreams and dreaming of jealousy is no different. When you dream about being jealous this is a reflection of your own protective feelings, feelings of abandonment, and desires of how things should be.
Whenever you dream about jealousy you need to weigh out whether or not your feelings are fair and if you are doing the right thing for yourself and the other person in your waking world.

- Felt like someone was playing favorites
- Been jilted
- Preferred someone over someone else
- Been accused of something because someone was jealous

Detailed dream meaning
Feeling jealousy in a dream is an indication of your own feelings of inadequacy. The other person that you are feeling jealous about is usually not even a real issue in your waking world and the problem that you are having is feeling that you don’t have enough to offer in a relationship or situation. Most of the time when you have jealousy issues in a dream then it is a sign that you need to be more assertive and in control in a relationship or situation in order to clarify your role and the importance of you in the situation.
If you are the one feeling jealous in a dream then you may want to consider your own actions as well. When you feel jealous this can be about your own guilt about playing favorites with someone else and realizing that you are the one that is not being fair.
Then there are the other times when feeling jealous in a dream is an indication of your own fear or inadequacy. Of course sometimes when you dream your mind is simply working out issues that are arising in your life and perhaps you were accused of being too clingy or your own partner was being nice to someone else that made your jealous feelings flare up but remember that in the dream time that emotions are often exaggerated and you want to be sure that if you do confront the person that is causing your jealousy that you are not being insecure and accusatory. Consider your feelings but a take actions with a grain of salt – especially if you are otherwise secure in the relationship with the person.
Causing jealousy in a dream is indicative of being too demanding and can also stem from your own fear. If you feel that you are being fair and that the other person’s jealousy in your dream is unreasonable explore your own feelings and reflect them back on yourself. Question where you haven’t been fair or who you may have recently taken advantage of.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life
- Feeling jilted
- Not getting enough attention in a relationship
- Being too demanding or unfair
