Dream Interpretation: I Dreamed I Had a Virgin Birth

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!!
