Dream Interpretation: I Drove a Shopping Cart on a Highway

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I’m a guy but I had a dream that I was a girl, but it wasn’t really focused on the fact that I was a girl. I was a girl in a shopping cart on a highway and I was driving the shopping cart with a baby in green blankets in a rectangular box.

Lauri:  Gender-bending dreams are more common than you might think. These dreams aren’t so much about the body of the opposite gender but more about the energy or qualities of that gender. Therefore, you being a girl in this dream may be more about you taking on a more sensitive, caring, or even creative role in your life recently.

The shopping cart suggests that you are in the market for something new in your life, such as a new relationship, a new job, a new attitude, something like that. I believe the baby means that you have obtained this new element in your life and your dreaming mind is showing it to you in the form of a baby so that you will realize this new part of your life requires lots of care and attention, like a baby, so that it can continue to grow and develop into something positive and healthy. And driving down the highway seems to suggest that this new element in your life has the potential to really go places!

My Meds Are Making My Dreams Sexually Terrifying

April 18, 2013

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. This week, another reader continues the running Sapphic theme and asks Lauri:

I have recently been diagnosed with depression and am currently on prescription medication for it. But for the last couple of months, since I’ve been taking these meds, I’ve had the weirdest dreams.

I keep dreaming that I’m being hunted down by a serial killer. Some nights I dream that he finds me and threatens me with a gun while he rapes me. Other nights I dream that I commit suicide just to make sure he doesn’t find me. He does horrible things, like crushing the heads of baby animals… I once dreamed that he made me have sex with another woman. I am not gay. This was terrible… I do not know who he is, but it is the same guy featured in every dream.

Please help me understand why I am having these dreams? Apart from the depression, that was triggered by the traumatic birth of my daughter (she is a healthy 9 months old now), I am happily married with the normal toils of everyday life, nothing spectacular. I keep thinking about my dreams during the day and they seem to make me even more depressed and are hindering my work as well.

Lauri:  Many prescription medications affect REM sleep, causing you to be in REM longer than normal and also causing your REM time to be more intense. That’s not to say that your dreams during this time should be dismissed as a side effect so I am glad you are seeking out their meaning.

The murderer in your dream is most likely your depression. It hunts you down daily and is killing off who you really are. He also rapes you because rape in a dream is really about you feeling screwed over in real life. The depression has really  f***ed with you, hasn’t it? He crushes the heads of baby animals because this is all going on in your head. It’s crushing the joy out of your life.

The other woman most likely represents you not feeling like yourself. You are a different woman than you used to be and the sex symbolizes that you are merging with this unfamiliar person: the depressed you.

Don’t let these dreams cause a vicious cycle within you. Understanding them will certainly take the fear out of them. In addition, it may take a little time for the meds to kick in. If the dreams don’t change and they are still freaking you out, then by all means, ask your doctor to change the medication. Let us know how things work out for you!

Dream Interpretation: Does a Lesbian Dream Mean I Like Girls?

April 10, 2013

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

So I’m a girl , I had a dream last night that I was with another girl, we did a lot of stuff that lesbians would do. This girl is someone I know, but not someone that I’m really close to. We used to be really close, but not anymore. Anyways, last night my dream was about me and her in a bed, she was doing stuff to me.. then I started to touch her and when I went to eat her out we got interrupted by a bunch of guys that were drunk, then she got up and started to drink with them and I left. Does this mean I like girls? I’ve always wondered if I do. But is this dream telling me I actually do like them ?

Lauri:  I believe this dream may be more about your relationship with this girl rather than about your sexuality. I believe, through this dream, you are expressing a desire to be close to her again AND you are trying to figure out what went wrong.

See, the thing about sexual activity in a dream is that it is more symbolic of “coming together” on some emotional or psychological level than it is about “coming together” on a physical level. So the intimacy in this dream is more about the intimacy of the friendship you used to have.

Now, notice how — when describing the actions in this dream — you said, “She was doing stuff to me… then I started to touch her and when I went to eat her out we got interrupted…” Does this seem eerily similar to what went down in real life as far as your sort-of break-up is concerned? Was she “doing stuff to you,” such as saying mean things or doing things that upset you? And were you ready to really let her have it, you know, “chew her out,” but something stopped you?

The interruptions by the drunks could also symbolize the interruption of your friendship. Whatever it was that caused you to not be so close anymore is being shown to you in the form of drunks to let you know that — whatever it was — it was most likely caused by distortions of the truth or not thinking clearly. You guys allowed something to cloud the truth of your friendship just like alcohol clouds one’s judgment.

It seems that deep down you miss her. Maybe this dream could be a good conversation starter! Or maybe not… It could freak her out. Nonetheless, give this some good thought, because good friends are hard to come by.

Dream Interpretation: I Combed My Hubby’s Ex’s Hair

March 27, 2013

0 Comments

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I dreamt I was sitting on a bed in a strange room with my husband’s baby momma. I was combing her hair. Some was real and some of her hair was fake. We are talking. My husband is in the room walking around. He just got out of the shower. I was asking her when they started seeing each other again. (He had a child with her before we married. The child is 19 and now he is talking with baby mama. Secretly. Lying about his communication with her.) Why am I being nice and understanding and combing her hair?

Lauri: You find yourself in a strange room in this dream because you are in a strange place in waking life (hubby lying about his communications with his ex). You are combing her hair because you are trying to comb through and sort out your own thoughts regarding her. You see, hair in dreams often represents our thoughts because — like hair — our thoughts sprout from the head. The real hair represents true thoughts and emotions you are dealing with, and I believe the fake hair represents your thoughts regarding what is not true in your life right now.

You are having a conversation with her because a conversation needs to happen in real life… not a conversation with her, but rather a conversation about her. I think your husband coming out of the shower is the way your dreaming mind is telling you that you need to allow him the opportunity to come clean on his own. Perhaps they are talking about their son and that is all. Hubby may not be telling you — yet — because he doesn’t want to upset you.

I would take your dream’s advice and give him the opportunity to come clean. If he doesn’t in a timely manner, then in order to put this to rest, hence the bed, I would open up a friendly dialogue, hence the friendly tone of the dream, rather than an accusatory one. You get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar, after all!

Dreamer’s response: Thank you. Thank you. I have tried to talk with him and it ends with me angry and him shutting down. Two days ago I decided to back off and let us have this discussion when we are face to face (he does contract work out of state). When I made and accepted that decision, I became and felt calmer, more in control of my emotions. I agree with you 100%. Thank you again. Blessings to you.

Dream Interpretation: I Kiss My Friend on the Lips – Does This Mean I’m Bi?

March 21, 2013

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I had this dream about one of my girl friends, and she was falling and I saved her. She told me she loved me and kissed me on the lips.  Does this mean I’m bi-curious? And would there have been a chance she had the same dream too?

Lauri: Is there a chance she had the same dream too? It is possible. There is a phenomenon called shared dreaming where two people have the same or a very similar dream on the exact same night. It usually happens to two people who are very close: husband and wife, best friends, mother and daughter, etc. The reason why is because the two individuals are dealing with the same issue and their subconscious responds to it similarly by giving them comparable dreams.

That being said, the only way you can know if she had the same dream is to ask her!

Does it mean you are bi-curious? Probably not, because dreams are more symbolic than literal. Plus, if you were bi-curious you would probably know it long before this dream.

Now, let’s see if we can figure out the meaning of it. The falling aspect of this dream means that she or perhaps even you have suffered some sort of let down or perhaps even an emotional crash recently.  In real life, have you supported her emotionally, held her up as she was crumbling or stopped her from making a mistake in some way?

The kiss may symbolize intimate conversation because, like kissing, it takes two mouths to communicate. Did you support her or help her recently through a deep and meaningful conversation?

It’s great that she tells you she loves you. Yes, this could reflect her love for you as a dear and supportive friend but it is also important to keep in mind that whatever you are told in a dream – no matter who is saying it – it is really coming from the deepest part of yourself. So I believe this declaration of love is really recognition from your subconscious for a job well done in waking life. So good job, young lady!

Dream Interpretation: Blonde on Blonde in a Futuristic Hotel

March 14, 2013

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Background: I had a dream in the preceding months where the zombie apocalypse started (dang “Walking Dead” before bedtime) and I ran into a HUGE futuristic hotel I’d never seen before. The hotel in the dream below is the same hotel. Also, I am in a relationship.

The dream: I entered the hotel, alone I believe, and met a young blonde girl (much like myself). We talked and walked, but all I could focus on was her face. It wasn’t painfully obvious she was a lesbian, so I listened and admired her, trying not to get to flirty (I was). When we finally got to my room, we were about to say goodbye, or I was going to kiss her. I was thinking, “I’ve got a girlfriend, but I like her a lot…” Then I woke up.

Lauri: It’s not that uncommon to dream of a location that exists only in your dreams more than once. Typically, settings in dreams represent a certain “area” of your life. The hotel setting of your dream represents an area of your life that is temporary or that is in transition, since we stay in hotels for a temporary amount of time. Are you concerned your relationship may only be temporary? Or is it going through a transition right now?

The unknown gal in this dream could represent a desire for another relationship (if you aren’t jumping up and down over your current one). However, it is more likely that she represents a part of yourself (everything and everyone in your dream represents a part of you or a part of your life) because you did, in fact, mention that she was like you.

It is significant that she had blond hair. The blond hair suggests that you need to lighten up in your thoughts or in your words… or that you are in the process of lightening up. You are attracted to her in the dream because your inner self wants you to really like the idea of being lighter in your attitude or in your mind.

It’s also interesting that you were going to say goodbye to her in the dream. I think that is connected to the temporary element of this dream. I’m wondering if maybe things are going well and you do feel lighter emotionally, but worry that it won’t last. Whatever the case, keep this lighter, brighter side of you alive and well. Don’t say good ye. A lighter, positive attitude can work wonders in your life… and especially in your relationships!

Dreams About My High School Sweetheart Make Me Cry – Help!

March 7, 2013

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I dream about my high school sweetheart often. The last time I dreamt of her, I was surprised to learn she was in the hospital, I went to check up on her and talk to the doctor, and she told me she missed me very much. I wake up crying. In another one, I am walking in the street holding hands with her. In another, we are classmates in school. I want to talk to her but I can’t.

Whenever I dream about her I cry and then I wake up.

Lauri: You might automatically be assuming that these dreams are about your childhood sweetheart, and I have no doubt you do miss her to a degree, but it is more likely that after all these years, she has become a symbol for the innocence and purity of a new and exciting relationship.

Have you been through some heartbreak lately? If so, that’s where the crying comes in. Whatever emotion you experience in a dream can always be connected to that same emotion you are having in waking life. You may be crying in your dreams because you aren’t allowing yourself to fully express your sadness while awake.

The fact that one of your dreams took place in a hospital suggests that in waking life you are trying to heal from something… heart break maybe? Or perhaps you are trying to make a current relationship better. The school setting tells us that you are learning valuable lessons right now, perhaps relationship lessons. And most importantly, not being able to talk to her is probably connected to a communication issue in real life. Are you having trouble communicating in a current relationship or in general do you have a hard time speaking up about what’s on your mind?

Whatever the case, I believe these dreams show you still believe in love and pure relationships so don’t ever lose that! Holding on to bitterness and distrust will ruin relationship after relationship. And life is too short for that nonsense.

Dream Interpretation: My Boyfriend and I Had 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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

My boyfriend, who lives with me, and I had the same dream last night. He killed me, but was possessed while doing so. I’m sure the details in his dream were different than mine, but it was the same content.

My dream was one I’d had before. In my dream, another man tries to save me from my current boyfriend, but is unsuccessful and my boyfriend stabs me. The dream was very dark and dreary and also involved a train and a train station and skips to a party scene on the train.

In his dream he was possessed and stabbed me like 20 times and after the fact that I was dead he realized what he did and started balling and hugged my dead body until the police came.

The fact that we both dreamt the same thing on the same night is rather scary. Any thoughts?

Lauri: Yes, two people can have the same dream on the same night. It’s called shared dreaming and it usually happens to two people who are very close: husband and wife, best friends, mother and daughter, etc. The reason why is because the two individuals are dealing with the same issue and their subconscious responds to it similarly by giving them comparable dreams.

Now, let’s decipher these dreams and see if we can pinpoint the shared issue. Being stabbed in a dream often means you have been the victim of someone’s hurtful and wounding remarks. Do you recall if you and your boyfriend fought that day? Did he take a lot of “stabs” at you by criticizing you?

The fact that you’ve had this dream more than once concerns me that he may have an anger problem. Just as he was possessed in the dream, does it sometimes seem like some angry person had taken over his body? Is he sometimes not himself?

The murder aspect of these dreams suggests he may be trying to force some sort of change on you. Death in a dream is a natural change or ending in waking life whereas murder in a dream is a forced change or ending. The unknown man that was trying to rescue you in the dream is most likely your own male, assertive self. Do you recall trying to “grow a pair” and stand up for yourself that day… to no avail?

His remorse in the dream shows he’s truly sorry in waking life. Nonetheless, if there are changes he is trying to get you to make, you may wanna tell him to lighten up a bit about it because it’s giving you nightmares!

Dream Interpretation: I Keep Running Away from My Ex

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I keep having this dream and my ex is in it. Same dream just different places. It’s always with him and his sister. I always end up walking into them. I talk to the sister but he is quiet and walks away. I had a different dream where the same thing happened but this time I ran away when his sister wanted us to talk. This dream always comes back. He and I do still talk and we’ve remained friends and there are still feelings between us. I don’t know if this has anything to do with it . Help please.

Lauri: I believe it has everything to do with it! Our dreams are most often connected to unresolved issues. It seems to me that the lack of communication between the two of you in these dreams is a direct result of something that is going unsaid between the two of you in waking life. And that unsaid something is most likely the feelings you both still hold for each other.

It’s interesting that he is the one that always walks away and I think it is because of one of two reasons: he’s the one that ended the relationship OR you feel he is the one that should bring up what has been unsaid all this time… and he never does. However, in the latest of this series of dreams you RUN away. AY yi yi mija! I think that is a good indication that deep down, you know it is best that a romantic relationship with this boy should not be rekindled. Remember, he’s an ex for a reason.

The dreams will stop when some sort of finality is made. Initiate the conversation and get that closure you need or decide to close your heart to him so you can open it to someone you can have a lasting relationship with.

Dream Interpretation: I Pulled Peaches from My Peach

February 14, 2013

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. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

Hello, I’m single, celibate, and have been for seven months. I fear intimacy with someone who isn’t right for me or doesn’t want to commit, and recently I had two bizarrely weird sex dreams.

In the first I am in a Garden of Eden type place. It’s a mild summer dusk, the sky is a very pale blue, and the Garden is lush with green grass, broad trees, and abundant foliage, but everything is covered with fresh, green Eucalyptus leaves. A Facebook friend who’s usually a grouch is there being encouraging, smiling and good natured. I am hungry so she suggests I eat, but all I can see is an eaten apple. I look again and that too is covered with Eucalyptus leaves. She suggests getting something from a tree that’s enclosed by a picket fence. I walk in and the Eucalyptus grass stirs. A fat green snake, covered in Eucalyptus, hisses and lunges for me. I scream and wake up.

In the second dream I am lying naked on a luxury upgraded version of my bed. My mouth is open and pouty. I look great and am horny. My hands reach down towards my genitals. My pubic hair is groomed but fluffy. As I am about to masturbate, I pull out juicy, ripe peaches from my genitals. It doesn’t hurt pulling them out. I try to again and this time I pull out cream cheese. Green salad leaves start growing from there as well.

It’s so confusing, what does this all mean please?

Lauri:  I have to tell you, I absolutely adore these dreams! The imagery and especially the messages are fantastic! Making the decision to remain celibate until you find that special someone you know won’t disrespect you or take advantage of you is a big deal! And in this day and age that is something to be commended… yet at the same time, in this day and age that is something that will be difficult to do. But fear not! These dreams are not only confirming that you have made the right choice for yourself, they are also giving you some very clever encouragement.

The setting of your first dream is the Garden of Eden, the most famous place of temptation in history! And boy, howdy, are you going to be finding yourself in places of temptation as you try to stick to your guns! But notice how everything is covered in leaves. I believe that is a reminder that when you gave into temptation in the past, someone would “leave” you. Yes, dreams loooove to use puns. If you can find one in your dream, you have found part of the message.

You are hungry in the dream because you are hungry for a lasting, healthy, trusting relationship in real life. The eaten apple you find symbolizes how you feel about letting others take a bite out of you in the past. You don’t want to be that girl that is considered all used up. I think your typically grouchy friend who is unusually friendly and encouraging is how your dreaming mind wants you to be: kind and supportive to yourself rather than angry at yourself over the past.

The snake that comes at you at the end of your first dream is the absolute perfect symbol for the temptation you are going to have to face in the coming months. The snake not only represents the temptation that Eve fell victim to, but it also represents the tempting phallus -0 or rather phalli — that you will likely be confronted with and must resist until you finally encounter that friendly, trustworthy phallus that is out there somewhere.

Since the first dream is all about the phalli you are trying to resist, this second dream is all about “the lady garden” you must protect! Yes, you can certainly enjoy it all you like and that will certainly help you to resist falling prey to a smooth talking snake with ill intensions! But what’s more, I think this dream is trying to show you the value of what you’ve got going on down there. The peaches represent how juicy, delicious, and tempting it is for men but at the same time, it is a fruit that they must labor for and should not be given away willy nilly!

The cream cheese is… well, duh! But it could also be a warning not to spread yourself around too thinly as may have been the case in the past. And finally, the growing salad leaves, I believe are all about how a “healthy” relationship can grow and flourish. And ultimately, that’s what you are after and it seems all the delicious symbols in this dream are giving you the recipe for how to acheive just that!
