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:
For the longest time I have been having a dream about someone, but I don’t know who! In my dreams he’s slowly turning around and he says my name softly, like we know each other. I even know his name — and recently I found out that someone with this same name likes me. Please help, I’m confused!
Lauri: Naturally, you must be wondering if you are having some sort of psychic connection, through your dreams, with this guy whom you just found out fancies you. Well, who knows, but psychologically speaking, I would say this dream is more about you.
You see, when we dream, the mind goes inward, into the self, not outward. Dreaming is a means of introspection and self discovery. The mystery man in your dream is more likely the “male,” assertive part of your personality. The dreaming mind has a cool way of showing us the different parts of our PERSONality in the form of a PERSON.
Now, this mystery man in your dream is saying your name because your inner self wants you to recognize that you do have an assertive side and you need to identify with it, which is why you know the name, and use it in your life. Can you think of anything that’s been going on recently where it would do you good to “man up,” be assertive and firmly handle the situation? Maybe the situation has to do with the real life guy who likes you. Perhaps your intuition knew he had the hots for you and, through these dreams, was trying to tell you to face your male, assertive side and make this real life relationship happen!
