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 had a dream after two months of my marriage in which I saw myself giving birth to a baby without the help of anyone. After I gave birth I called a medical practitioner to help me with the cleaning up. What does this mean?
Lauri: It’s very possible this dream is a sign that you are ready to start a family. When our biological clock starts ticking, all our conscious mind and subconscious mind can think about is baby, baby, baby. Often the subconscious mind will start giving us hints in our dreams before our conscious mind catches up. This could be why you gave birth in the dream by yourself, because hubby may not be “with you” yet as far as the idea of starting a family, which is usually the case. For example, I was more than ready for a baby a good year before my hubby was. We gals have a bit more of a time limitation than men.
If you are absolutely not ready for children and this dream seemed to come completely from out of the blue, then the birth would be symbolic of something new that has recently developed in your life, something that requires a lot of attention and nurturing from you, like a new job, going back to school, a new business or project, etc. It would be something that is all of your own doing and your own responsibility in real life since you gave birth all by yourself in the dream. Hopefully it is NOT a sign that you are already feeling alone in your marriage. Oy!
The cleaning of the mess is an interesting element and may be connected to your need to straighten out a situation that got “messy” in real life or a need to organize yourself so you can better care for this new development. Whatever the case, it seems to be a good dream pointing to new beginnings for you!
