What does sex mean in dreams? Does the kind of sex make any difference?

Dream Question 370: A female dreamer asked: What does it mean if you dream that you have sex with someone almost identical to yourself?

Sex at the first level usually means integration especially if it was good consensual sex. If you have a dream where you are having sex with someone who is identical to yourself, how the act was performed would make substantial difference in my world.

Let’s say the act was very loving, then the dream would be signaling that you were integrating love into yourself. If the act was aggressive but none the less satisfying, the dream would be signaling either that you have integrated some aggressive impulses into your personality, or the dream maybe advising for some reason that you integrate some aggression more into your personality. This isn’t necessarily bad, because it’s aggression that gives us the get up and go to accomplish things. It just has to be controlled by other parts of the personality.

The more intimate the sexual act, the more integrated it is. Having sex with an identical self is rather awesome in a way because it is saying that you really don’t need any other person other than yourself. Women usually represent an emotional part of the dreamer, and since the dreamer was a woman, the emphasis is on emotional integration. If the dreamer were a man, the dream would be emphasizing integrating his actions since men tend to go more with action parts of the mind.

Striking Dreamlike Image

Dreamlike image 265:

Why is this image of lightning striking a tree so impressive? It is because of the meaning of the different elements of the image in dreams or in our subconscious. Lightning is electric fire.

Fire subconsciously is registered as change because fire changes matter into energy. Lightning is dramatic fire or fire on steroids. Lightning is dramatic change that occurs instantly.

Trees unconsciously are seen by the mind as an image of integration since the tree opens to the sky, goes underground deeply and is here on the level with us. So a tree represents growth and integration of the three levels of the mind representing, respectively, the superego, the unconscious, and the conscious mind. It is almost always a positive sign when trees enter the dream scenery.

So a healthy tree being struck by lightning means that dramatic and instantaneous change has occurred which is integrative to the person. In other words, it is almost always good news although it is certain to stressful. The rapidity of the change is dramatic and affects the whole person and 20140731-110637-39997799these transformative changes are likely to be positive although the person going through it is likely to be disoriented trying to adjust to it. Even good change takes a person some time to adapt to it.
