Other people‚Äôs dreams are never interesting‚Ä¶except when they‚Äôre about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. This week, a reader asks Lauri:
This really isn’t a sex dream at all, but I have dreamt twice this week of hugging (very long embrace) a tall, gorgeous, shirtless man.¬† I cannot see his face & I believe it was a different man in each dream.¬† I vaguely remember talking to the men, but never leaving the embrace, just my head resting on a marvelous bare chest.
Lauri: Ha!¬† Your dream reminds of one of my recent dreams where my husband, Joe Jonas and I all were engaged in a long and loving embrace! But enough about me.¬† To hug in a dream means you have embraced something new in waking life such as a new attitude, a new behavior, a new opinion, etc.¬† My bet is that you have embraced your “male” side.¬† Being assertive, bringing home the bacon, taking a no nonsense approach to life are all considered masculine or yang qualities.¬† Whereas, sensitivity, creativity and nurturing are considered feminine or yin qualities.¬† Naturally, your dreaming mind will present these qualities to you in the form of a man or woman in order to show you how well or how poorly you are utilizing your yin and your yang.¬† You have embraced yours and are apparently quite pleased with yourself in waking life since you were so attracted to him in the dream.¬† How have you asserted yourself lately?¬† Like his studly, shirtless torso, did you get something off your chest? Did you say it like it is and did that work out well for you?¬† All signs seem to point to YES! Keep it up sista!¬† Don‚Äôt let the fear of being called the B word hold you back.
Dreamer Response: Wow, this is great.¬† Thank you soo much for this. My guesses weren’t close:
- 1st thought:¬† being the comittment-phobe that I am, I am not satisfied in my current relationship…something is lacking
- 2nd: I am currently rereading Twilight series & I am dreaming of Edward. LOL
This probably has to do with the fact that I have been feeling like I have to take care of everything in my relationship.¬† I am like the man and the woman…I work full time, clean the house, take care of shopping & dinner, I am the one who remembers the directions, drives, decides on any plans.¬† Sooo, I finally told him that it has been 5 years and he needs to ‘step it up’.¬† That I don’t always want to be ‘the one’ who handles Everything.¬† With every person, including Him asking when we are finally going to tie the knot…I have been a bit more critical of the relationship…silently.¬† I have no kids (we are 27 & WAY too close to 28) & I don’t want to be a parent to my man.¬† I did finally get that off my chest & I think I am happy that I did and know that time will tell if he is taking me seriously.
