What does having your baby delivered by a troubled sister mean?

Dream 506: Surprising delivery in difficult circumstances

I usually research my dreams online and find clear answers, but my dream last night was memorable and I’m getting very mixed results.

First and foremost, I am not pregnant!

But I dreamt of having cramps during a family event and finding out a hour or so later that it was labor. I was hardly showing and confused (in real life I’ve gained about 20 pounds I’m subconscious about and in my dream I was just a little larger than my actual size in the tummy). Being with my whole family, I got rushed to a safe place and before I knew it was giving birth.

My sister, who I am struggling with having a natural relationship with, delivered the baby in one easy push. She was beautiful and I held her in my arms. She had a lot of hair for a new-born and looked right at me. She was perfect!

I don’t remember much of the rest, but of course couldn’t help but be curious. I’ve had a dream about being pregnant but never one of giving birth. Things I’ve read say it’s a change or misfortune and both ways weigh heavily in that direction. Obviously don’t want a misfortune! It felt sudden and unplanned, but like a blessing once it was all said and done.

Interpretation

A baby usually is giving birth to a new aspect of yourself. It is a baby girl delivered by the contrary sister. Women usually go with an emotional part of your mind.

At the first level, I would guess that the part of you that is dealing with the sister is changing in significant ways. At the second level, the dream might be signaling a condensation in the sense that if you let your sister help you “deliver,” it may open up a newly minted emotional part of yourself.

Another point of view is that a part of your emotions that is like your sister (try not to throw up) could be a shadow part of yourself that helps you deliver new and beautiful emotional perspectives.

In any case, I would take the dream as positive predictive and trying to give you credit for using a shadow part of your emotions to bring about new beginnings.

In any case, I think the dream may be saying that things improve emotionally with your family (since they all go to the hospital together with you)–hospitals are a symbol of a place where healing occurs.

What does it mean when a deceased relative hugs you in a dream?

Dream Vision 402: Hang in There Baby

I dreamed hat my deceased brother-in-law hugged me as i was leaving the hospital after visiting my wife who was a patient there.

Interpretation

My wife was having a number of medical difficulties. She was hospitalized right before I had this dream. What was different about this dream was the feeling of touch. I had the feeling that I actually was physically hugged by him.

The deceased brother-in-law in the dream was a doctor in real life who was totally loved by his wife, family of eight children, and the world. He was a strong and empathetic healer. He gave encouragement and clear direction to all that knew him.

One major type of dream is what I call a vision dream. People typically report that they feel is more of a vision than a dream. I could vividly see him and had the sensation of being physically hugged.

What sets these dreams apart is the sensation part of it. The vision or seeing of the person seems more vivid. The sense of touch is usually filled which does not occur in many dreams actually.

Sometimes people indicate they can even smell the familiar person. The vivid image of him in extraordinary detail and the physical feeling of touch were in this dream. I usually do not have dreams like this.

It is memorable the few times they do happen. It always seems to be significant to what is happening in the outside world or in reality. On the other hand, what is the ultimate reality?

Theoretical physicists tell me that there are at least 10 dimensions plus time. We see only three of them. They say that it is all happening here right now . I believe that leaves a lot of room for spiritual interpretation of visions like this one.

What does a mental institution and an injection mean in a dream?

You are not a body having a spiritual experience; You are a spirit having a body experience.

Dream 346: The Mind Body Dichotomy

A woman dreamed that she was in a mental institution. She desperately wanted to escape. She finally took off running for the door.

A charge nurse intercepted her and gave her an injection. The dreamer was later allowed to stroll the hospital grounds with an attendant. The staff seemed genuinely concerned about her and she could feel that they wanted to protect her, i.e., “Once I understood in the dream that I wasn’t meant harm I got over any negative feelings.”

In real life, the dreamer was surprised that she was in a mental institution because she recently had some major physical issues.

Interpretation

The dream was occurring in a hospital so it was probably about healing of some kind. The contrast is between physical healing and mental healing in the sense that the hospital is mental, but the dreamer had physical issues going on. Also, none of the healers, the doctors and nurses, talked to the dreamer.

The only intervention is physical (the nurse gives her an injection, a treatment intervention associated with pain, when she tried to escape). Nevertheless, the dreamer did feel that the hospital staff intent was primarily protective. The dream was probably talking about any possible emotional issues she may have been having because of the need for physical treatment, i.e., “Once I understood in the dream that I wasn’t meant harm I got over any negative feelings.”

It sounded to me like the dream was addressing the need for her to accept physical treatment, that the doctors and nurses were not trying to harm her when administering sometimes aversive treatments. Doctors can sometimes be insensitive about how they are affecting patients emotionally. There are frequently issues of accepting unpleasant but necessary treatments.

Dream 211: Wild Horses May Take Me Away

A 20-year-old woman dreamt that she was in the hospital after recently giving birth to a baby girl. She dreamt that her attractive and social girlfriend was now giving birth to a baby boy. She previously had gone on double dates with this friend. The dream shifted to her driving to a barn located near a highway. The barn was brown. It had three horses within it. She went and took care of the horses. She later returned to the hospital where her friend was. She wondered if she closed the gate.

Dream 211–Interpretation

The dream started out the scene with a hospital which implies that some healing needs to take place. In reality, the dreamer recently gave birth to a baby girl. Her remembering this during the dream was juxtaposing her role as a mother with her role as a woman. She was being told that a new action part of herself (the baby boy) was being born in relation to her being a heterosexual woman because the baby boy’s mother was associated with her femininity.

The brown barn represents earthiness and being grounded, especially because it was brown. Horses often represent female sexual power. The number three indicated that some change in her definition of herself as a woman was taking place. That there were three horses emphasized the strength of her feminine powers (horsepower). When she tended her instinctive sexuality, she had to do so alone, without her child. She wondered if she had let her desires run wild because she worried about closing the gate after the horses had already left the barn.
