Whenever I sleep at my boyfriend’s place, I always have this dream of being caught sleeping with him naked by his parents or his grandmother. And it wakes me up in the middle of the night then I’ll have a problem going back to sleep. I’m kind of scared for that to happen because his family is conservative. Because of that, sometimes I would rather go home late at night than stay there and be worried while I’m sleeping. Is it like a premonition or am I just over-thinking?
Lauri: From what you have told me, it seems that your boyfriend lives with his parents and you often stay the night there secretly, right? In that case, this dream is not necessarily a premonition but rather a warning your inner mind is sending you about a very realistic possibility.
We tend to dream about what is on our mind the most, and when you are at his place, it is very clear that getting caught is top of mind. Being naked in these dreams symbolizes the vulnerability you feel while there that “all will be revealed.”
And being woken up in the dream isn’t just about your fear of actually being woken up but also about your need to “wake up” and realize the danger of the situation. If getting caught is going to jeopardize your relationship, then you might want to make it a habit of heading back home at night in order to preserve the relationship and get that much needed sleep!
