Dream Interpretation: I Forgot About My Baby I Left Home All Alone

May 21, 2015

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

A few weeks ago I dreamed I was pregnant. Then recently I dreamed I gave birth to a baby boy in a car outside of the hospital. I was more concerned about getting the blood and being cleaned instead of the baby but when i held the baby nothing else mattered. It was like I fell in love all over again. I was brought home where I live with my husband and for some reason I found myself going out. Whilst talking to some woman (can’t remember who she was) I remembered I had a baby home all alone. I ran home looking all around the house for the baby. When I found him I started to cry.

Lauri:¬†¬†Let’s start with the obvious. Are you trying to get pregnant or thinking about getting pregnant? If so, then these dreams are mentally preparing you for the task. If not, then these dreams suggest there is something new in your life that needs your time, attention and care in order to grow and reach its potential. Let’s see if we can figure it out.

In your first dream you were pregnant, which means – at the time – something in your life was in the planning or development stage. A few weeks later you dreamed you gave birth, which means that certain something that was being developed actually came through. The fact you just wanted the baby to be cleaned up suggests there may have been a messy start to this new element in your life, but once you accepted the situation, you realized it was pretty dang awesome. But at the end of the dream you are out and realize you left the baby at home alone. This is another clue. It seems you have something new in your life, that may have had a bit of a messy start, and despite the fact you wound up totally digging it, you have managed to let your responsibility towards it slide.

So what does all this remind you of in your real life? Your marriage? Some project? A new friendship? A new job? Whatever it is, your dreaming mind is showing you how important this is to you and that its success depends on you!

Dream Interpretation: We Both Dreamed Our Son Was Two People

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

After sex with my wife we both slept together. I dreamed that my four-year-old only son is calling from outside the bedroom. When I went out to see him he was lying on the floor with a cloth wrapped on him and calling me. I tried to uncover him but could not. I lifted him in my arms and took him back to the bedroom. I saw that my son was already sleeping beside my wife. At the same time my wife had a dream that she was lying in bed with two sons sleeping besides her. We both were frightened in our dream by the scene.

Lauri:¬† If you scroll through all my columns here, you’ll find that I am asked a lot about having the same or similar dream as someone else on the same night. It’s clearly way more common than we think. And in my research, I have been able to connect it to the fact that the two people who share the dream are also sharing the same issue and are dreaming about it in a similar fashion (we dream about what is on our mind the most).

You and your wife both dreamed that your son was two people. In real life do you feel your son has two personalities: a sweet cuddly little boy at times and a tantrum throwing monster at others, for example? In your dream he was calling for you and was wrapped in a blanket. This may mean you feel there is an issue with him that needs help and requires your attention, perhaps behavioral or health-wise.

Whatever the case, your shared dreams show you both have equal concern over the same issue, which is excellent! So don’t let the dreams worry you, but rather let it be a confirmation that you are both on the same page. Two minds working in harmony on a single issue will prove to be very effective.

Dream Interpretation: I Had Sex with Tim Curry As Frank-N-Furter

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I recently had a dream that I was having sex with a celebrity, the famous Tim Curry. But when I was engaging in sexual activity with him, it was year 1975 and he was dress in his Transvestite costume from the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the sex was hot, I’m just being honest. I could feel him pick me up off the ground and hug me, his arms were strong and when his chest touch my chest, it was like a connection. We all know that Tim Curry is quite yummy anyway, especially with his acting skills. But to have a dream of having sex with him was unlike any other dream I’ve had in a long time. This dream probably doesn’t mean anything, but I’ve always wanted to better understand why I have the dreams I have when I’m asleep? To be more frank about the dream, the fact that it took place in year 1975 is crazy because I wasn’t born until 1988.

Lauri: As any Rocky Horror fan knows, RHPS hit movie theaters in 1975 and this, being 2015, is the 40th anniversary of that magnificent film! That is probably why your dream took place in 1975.

The thing about The Rocky Horror Picture Show is that it’s not just a movie, it’s an identity. When you are a fan, you are a diehard fan; it courses through your blood stream and becomes part of your DNA. That may explain the “connection” you felt in the dream when your chests touched. The chest is where the heart is after all and Rocky Horror, and the delicious Tim Curry, will be carried in your heart forever. Trust me, I’m well into my 40s and Rocky Horror has been a part of me since I was 15. I even had a pet tarantula named Meat Loaf!

Anyway, back to you. Just as you took Tim into your body in the dream, so have you taken Rocky Horror into your heart and soul in real life. In a nut shell, your dream is telling you to give yourself over to absolute pleasure. Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh – erotic nightmares beyond any measure, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever. Can’t you just see it? Don’t dream it, be it. (Sorry…had to.)

I’m Straight, But in My Dreams, I’m a Sexually Frustrated Lesbian

April 9, 2015

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Hello, I have had a wave of dreams that I do not understand at all. In my dream I am a masculine lesbian and regardless of what faceless woman I’m trying to sleep with I always fail. Sometimes we have just got married and keep getting interrupted on our honeymoon. Most recently I dreamt that I was all over this woman and as soon as I think I’m getting somewhere my husband comes in the room and steals her away. I never get to achieve orgasam or even get wet. Why all the sexually frustrating lesbian dreams?

Lauri:¬†The dissatisfaction and inability to complete orgasm in these dreams is connected to something in your real life that brings about the same feelings of dissatisfaction and incompletion. Let’s start with the obvious… everything okay in the bedroom? If not, then your dreams are an extension of this and may suggest you wish your husband understood what the female body wants and needs during sex… hence the lesbian action in your dream.

However, if everything is A-okay in the bedroom then these dreams are connected to some other area of your life that is causing you to feel frustrated lately. You have a couple clues in these dreams that will help us narrow it down. In some of the dreams you have just gotten married. That tells us that these dreams are connected to some sort of commitment you have made in real life. Again, it could be your real life marriage, but I want you to look at other commitments such as a diet or exercise regimen, a project or something at works, etc. Does something keep interrupting a waking life commitment just as your honeymoon keeps getting interrupted in the dream?

Also, your husband keeps stealing your wife away. This may mean that your husband is somehow taking away your ability to commit to this project or diet or whatever it is… or at least you feel he is to blame. Does he keep bringing home chips and cookies? Or does he complain about the time you’re spending on some project? Anything like that?

Bottom line is, once you are able to pinpoint this waking life issue that you can’t seem to stick to or complete, you need to find a way to COMMIT to correcting it. These dreams will continue to nag you to death until you do. I really hope I was able to help you figure it out.

Response from Dreamer: Lauri, thank you so much for getting back to me.  I am shocked at how spot on you are about a few certain things. Between bedroom issues and duty and work issues you are exactly right.  Thank you again.  Very kind of you to do this.

My Boyfriend and I Separately Dreamed of the Same Shadowy Man

April 2, 2015

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Last night my boyfriend and I slept apart at our respective houses. We both had a dream of a very tall “shadow man” watching us. In his, he was go-karting and the man was part of the crowd watching, but taller than the other people and quite distinctive. But in mine, my boyfriend and I were both in my bed and I woke up and my boyfriend was sitting cross-legged on the bed looking out the window. When I woke up he asked, “Are you expecting someone?” And I replied “No…” and rolled over and sat up to look outside also.

I saw a very tall shadow figure standing on the driveway, and even though it did not have discernible eyes, I knew it was looking into my window. I did not look away and my boyfriend said, “You should go down and say hi since he’s your friend.” And my boyfriend was being very nonchalant and almost cheery as if it was a friend of mine just stopping by. I got scared and started saying to him I didn’t want to and I didn’t want him to make me go down there and asking how we should make it go away. I didn’t stop looking out onto the driveway and it didn’t move or stop staring and it TERRIFIED me. What does this mean? Also how is it possible that we both had a dream of the same figure on the same night in two different houses?

Lauri:¬†Very interesting! This shadow man that you both dreamed about symbolizes some sort of dark, negative presence in your relationship. In both of your dreams he was watching you so that’s a clue as to what it is. Are there people around you who look down on your relationship, such as family members or an ex?

What I find particularly interesting is that, in your boyfriend’s dream, the shadow was very distinctive, but in your dream his eyes were indiscernible. This shows us that your boyfriend has a clearer perspective or opinion on this negative element in your relationship than you do. And just like in your dream, he probably wants you to confront the issue and appease the situation.

In your dream he tells you that shadow man is your friend. This could mean that the negative element is coming from your side (your friends, family or ex or even your issue). Or your dreaming mind is encouraging you — through your boyfriend’s voice — to not worry so much about it. In your real life, what is it that you want to go away but that your boyfriend thinks isn’t such a big deal? That’s what the shadow man is, and you both dreamed about it the same night because it is an issue you probably discussed or dealt with that day. I have to go along with your boyfriend on this; you can’t wish this negative thing away, you have to confront it.

Dream Interpretation: I Dreamed I Had a Virgin Birth

March 19, 2015

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Today I dreamed that I was sitting in the bathroom of our old house naked on a commode and I gave birth to a baby naturally! I don’t know the gender of the baby. The baby was premature and very small. Then I saw I was somewhere and my breasts were sore and I realized I didn’t feed the baby any milk yet at all! I was thinking how come I didn’t feed him colostrum! I was feeling so bad in my dream. The dream was so strange. In my real life I am single and a virgin. Why did I dream such a weird dream?¬†

Lauri:¬† In the dream world, virgin births are very possible. Heck, even male births are possible. Remember, the dream world does not follow the waking world’s rules, so anything can happen!

In fact, in the dream world a birth is really about something new you have brought forth into your life, such as a new job, a new relationship, a new degree, a new skill, etc. But your dream takes place in your old house, which may mean this new skill, idea, or whatever it is, originally emerged when you were living there but you have since neglected it, which is why you never fed the baby in your dream. And it may have even been too soon back then, you must not have been ready or emotionally equipped to deal with it back then, which is why the baby was premature.

But something must be going on now where you are ready to give this idea, this skill, this relationship or project your attention again… so much so that your breasts are about to explode with nourishment! So whatever it is that you are ready to get back to nurturing and focusing on, your dream is telling you to do it… nurture the hell out of it!!

Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend Impregnates Someone Else

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I dreamt a woman that I didn’t know told me my boyfriend was cheating on me and that he was very excited because the girl was pregnant. Then the woman who my boyfriend cheated on me with appeared and said she was happy to meet me. I thought she was very unattractive but nice and that made me angry. She introduced herself as his girlfriend, she thought we had broken up. When I said he is my boyfriend, we live together and have 2 children she looked surprised and said she lives with him also in his room. The scene then changed and I was confronting my boyfriend in our car. He admitted that the woman was pregnant by him and at that moment Arnold Schwarzenegger drove by with a crazy look on his face (I did not see anything featuring him prior to falling asleep). Then I woke up…I’m so confused!!! What does it mean!?

Lauri:¬† Cheating dreams run rampant through our minds at night yet they are rarely connected to an actual affair. These dreams are so common because there is typically something our mate is involved in that he or she gives an awful lot of time and attention to, causing us to feel “cheated” out of the time and attention we want. In my research I have found that it is usually work that becomes the third wheel in the relationship. But it could be anything that you feel preoccupies him.

In your cheating dream, your boyfriend has impregnated his mistress. This indicates that in real life, whatever this thing is that your boyfriend is focused on, is now beginning to grow. The other woman also tells you that she lives with him, in his room. Besides you, what would you say your boyfriend “lives with?” Is he “living with” remorse or depression? Anything like that? Or is he so focused on some project that you feel he is practically married to it?

Whatever it is, I believe Arnold Schwarzenegger represents your desire to “Terminate” the issue.

Response from Dreamer: Lauri you are amazing! Everything you said makes perfect sense!! He has been preoccupied with work but spending a lot of his free time with his friends…one friend in particular who I have actually argued with my boyfriend over telling him he spends more time with the guy than me as if it’s his boyfriend! They hang out in the “man cave” in our house which I think is the “I live in his room” part of my dream. I absolutely love the Arnold Schwarzenegger meaning I want to terminate it part…very fitting!

How to Get the Most Out Of Lucid Dreaming…About a Celebrity!

March 5, 2015

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader tells Lauri:

Last night I had a dream, actually it was near morning so I was some kind of half awake and half asleep… I dreamed my celebrity crush, I guess it was a movie shooting that he was acting in it….so he was running, while he passed in front of me he turned his head and looked at me, that was when I saw him so I decided to follow the crowd, the next scene I remember is that I sat on a bench. The crowd was not there anymore, suddenly I saw him sitting on the bench (at this point I somehow knew I was dreaming!) so he moved closer towards me, so close that our sides were actually touching each other.

The creepy part of my dream is that I could feel him next to me, his thigh touching my thigh, and he started wrapping his hands around my shoulders (what I mean about feeling is that i could feel the pressure on my skin by his every move and touch!). So I was shocked that what he was doing, I guess he read my expression and told me that he really does like me!

He started holding my face and kissed me (I could even feel the pressure of his lips on my lips gosh so creepy yet I knew it was a dream!) Is it normal to really feel someone in your dream, to feel every move and touch of him like a real life?!

I have seen him in person several times, and he has seen me too, I am sure about that, but we never had a conversation together! And he is a celebrity so many girls have crush on him!!!

Lauri:¬†What you experienced was a lucid dream, a dream in which you know you are dreaming and, yes, it is normal to feel, smell, and even taste in dreams… especially the lucid ones. Lucid dreams happen most often to artistic types: writers, singers, artists, etc. They also tend to happen most often in the morning before you wake up for good.

If your crush is on your mind a lot it would make sense that you would dream about him as well (we tend to dream about what is on our mind the most or what affects us the most). Dreaming about your crush is a safe and fun way to explore all kinds of possibilities!

But here’s the thing, you were lucid in this one. The lucid dream state is THE coolest state of consciousness… like EVER! You are awake and asleep at the same time. You are conscious while in your subconscious mind. At this point, you can do ANYTHING! There are no rules in dreamland.

A lot of people become lucid within the midst of a nightmare and use the lucidity to get out of it. I tell my clients to take advantage of their lucidity and don’t waste it on escaping the dream world but rather use it to explore the dream world!

In your case, I would ask your celebrity crush a question and see what kind of answer you get, because you WILL get an answer. I had a lucid dream just about a week ago and I asked “What is the meaning of life?” You know what answer I got? “It’s fun but whoa!” LOL!

So if you become lucid in your dreams again, have fun with it. Ask your crush a question or just throw him down and have at it. Dream sex is the safest sex there is, after all.

Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend and I Were in a Creepy Forest

In my dream, my boyfriend and I were standing in a dark forest and I were hearing creepy sounds. Then I woke up.

Lauri:¬† Even just a snippet of a dream such as this can hold meaning for you, so let’s see if we can figure it out.

The setting is a dark forest. Typically the setting of a dream will reflect “where you are” in your life or “where you are” in a particular situation. Darkness in a dream is often connected to “being in the dark” in real life, being uncertain about things and having to deal with some unknowns. That’s also what forests often symbolize: mystery, the unknown. Are you and your boyfriend in a place in your relationship where there is a lot of uncertainty? Or are you the one that is feeling uncertain? What are you “in the dark about” lately?

The creepy sounds suggest you have a bad feeling about something and may even point to the whispers or buzz going on about your relationship. Is there anyone around you who doesn’t like the two of you together or who is saying negative things about you? The dream is showing you the state of your relationship. It seems you feel you need light shed upon the uncertainty you are dealing with and perhaps that is what will put an end to either the talk that may be swirling around you or the ominous feelings you may be having.

What It Means When You and a Friend Have the Same Dream

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it (18 and older only, please). This week, a reader tells Lauri:

I had a dream that I was spending time with a young male child in a room. From the other side of a door, I could hear my best female friend talking to another child. The weird thing is: she had the same dream from her point of view. We tried a relationship a while back, but there were some issues. I live in Ohio, and she lives 500 miles away in Illinois. We’re not sure what it means. We assume the children in the dream are our own.

Lauri:¬† We’ve been getting an onslaught of people writing to Em & Lo claiming they had the same dream as someone else. It’s called Shared Dreaming and it happens more often than you might think. The reason why it happens is because the two people who experienced the same dream are often both involved in the same issue and therefore dream about the issue in a similar manner.

The issue you share with your friend is a romantic relationship that didn’t work out. The door in your dreams probably symbolizes that you two have closed the door on that aspect of the relationship and are now just friends. But it could also symbolize what came between the two of you, besides the distance. Were either of you not open enough?

The children in the dream, rather than being your own children, are more likely the childish part of yourselves. Did the relationship end due to childish behavior?

Our dreams help us to figure out our issues and it seems that, through your shared dream, the two of you have figured out why the romantic part of your relationship didn’t work out… and sometimes people are simply better together as friends.
