I’m Straight But My Dreams Are of Lesbian Heartbreak

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:

Lately I’ve been having dreams about being in love with a woman. So in love that when I wake up I still feel the emotion and heartbreak of it. I am a happily married woman to a man with a 2 and a half year old son. I’ve never been in love with a woman in real life. I believe that I have no sexual attraction to women of any sort. So anyway, in these dreams, I feel greatly in love with a woman and it seems like that love is never satisfied. Either because the woman I’m in love with doesn’t love me back or they are already committed to someone else. Please help me put sense into these dreams!!!

Lauri:  In my latest book Dream On It: Unlock Your Dreams Change Your Life, I have a list of the 10 Rules to Remember when interpreting your dreams. One of those rules is that the emotion you feel in the dream can always be directly connected to that same emotion you are having over something in real life. So let’s start there.

In your real life lately, what is causing you heartbreak? Where in your life are you feeling unfulfilled or even rejected? You were also in love in the dream. This may be more about something in your waking life that you are very passionate about, perhaps a cause or even a talent or hobby. Whatever it is, it seems you aren’t getting a return out of it, leaving you with a sense of emptiness or rejection.

And finally, the woman in the dream is most likely some part of YOU! So think about that for a moment. Is there a part of you that you are felling disconnected from, a part of you that you really like? Maybe the thinner you before kids? Maybe the more adventurous, fun loving, carefree you? Maybe the working you (did you quit working after the baby came)? This dream is letting you kn0w that you need to reconnect with that part of yourself or reconnect with that passion, cause or hobby, etc, because your inner self seems to be missing it terribly.
