What does having sex with intuitive people in dreams mean?

tmp_2666-woman-intuition-762992674 Getting to know all about you

Dream 371: Going Crazy on You

A woman had the following dream:

“I dreamed the other night that I helped two guys who became infatuated with me. (This actually happens to me a lot in life.) There were two other guys there that were my friends in the dream and they looked at me like I knew better and why did I help further knowing better. I signaled back “I know, I know”. We didn’t need words because they were my intuition side. I got rid of the infatuated boys and became incredibly attracted to the intuitive ones. We had very intimate sex. I then ended up at a hospital to help deliver a baby with them and after got to see all the new-born babies in the hospital.”

My Interpretation

This would be seen as your integrating intuitive action parts of yourself. Sex between a man and a woman is usually seen as integration of actions (men) and emotions (women) as each character is a part of the dreamer’s psyche.

The first part of the dream where you are involved with two nerdy men basically is asking the question, “Why are you wasting your time with them or with those aspects of your life?”

Sex usually represents integration with the different part of yourself that you are having sex with. Integrating the different intuitive aspects leads to a whole new part of your psyche, the new baby. The thought would be since the dreamer was a female having sex with two intuitive men, that she was integrating two intuitive action parts of her mind.

This integration could be stimulated by any of several different actions. Such actions would include discussion with other intuitive people (probably men in this case or it could be the action parts of women’s minds). Watching intuitive movies, honing intuitive skills, psychic abilities, reading new age books and out-of-body travel would be examples of intuitive actions. A strong spirituality is probable.

What is the Divine Child archetype in dreams?

tmp_11533-divine-child-819252736

Dream 367: Giving the Divine Child archetype some spiritual courage
A young man had the following dream in his own words:

“I was walking beside a girl in a part of my dream last night. She was very sweet. As we were walking into a building I felt a presence behind her.

I looked back and there was a woman dressed in dark holding a gun to her.

I put my hand on the spine of the girl I was beside and humbly whispered ‘in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.’

Nothing more

Nothing less

And in that moment a light flashed over the girl with the gun and she put it down and said in a similar tone as mine when I spoke. She said ‘thank you.’

I smirked at her in a loving but strong way and walked the girl into the building she was going into.”

Interpretation

Assuming that the girl was a child, it was probably the Divine Child archetype. The Divine Child carries all our hopes, dreams and wishes for the future, like Jesus Christ did. It often is a blue-eyed blonde-haired little girl between the ages of 3 and 11. It can be other physical features, but these are the most frequent in our culture.

The girl as a Divine Child archetype would represent positive emotions and hoped for plans for the future. Women usually represent an emotional part of the dreamer. A woman with a gun is shadow aggressive/negative emotions.

The dreamer put his hand on her spine and say something very spiritual. The dream is saying that strong spirituality helps him stand up to negative emotions, it helps him have more spine.

The dreamer in the dream is acting as the heroic masculine which is usually the part of the personality that is involved in healing. It takes the action necessary to heal the person or make them better. In this case, the heroic masculine is lending his strength to Divine Child emotionality so that his plans can be actualized and come into reality.

When the Heroic Masculine lends it’s strength in performing healing action to the Divine Child, the Self can only say “thank you” that Shadow emotions were overcome and vanquished.

What does a cathedral, little boys, and puppies mean in a dream?

Dream 346: Loving Spiritual Change

A woman dreamed she was in a gigantic cathedral whose ceiling went far into the sky. There were 3 five-year-old boys who ran over to a pew where she was. They were very excited and each wanted her to choose him.

She felt she had to touch each of their hands to pick the right one for her. She felt a massive energy exchange when she touched each one. She then had a second dream of a tiny loving puppy curled in her lap.

Interpretation

The dream starts out in a Cathedral so it is probably about spiritual choices. There are three young boys. 3 is the number of change because 3 people in a relationship is the most unstable situation .

The idea is that each of the little boys is a part of the dreamer’s psyche. They are action parts of her psyche because they are male. (Female characters tend to go with more emotional parts of the mind.)

The dream was predicting that the dreamer will pick a new course of action with spiritual implications. Puppies like kitties usually go with affections. Only puppies usually go more with men which again goes with an action part of the mind.

All in all, looking across the two dreams, they were probably predicting, I believe, that she was going to choose a new course of action which had spiritual implications that she was going to love. The energy exchange she felt when she passed her hand in front of each boy indicated that her choice will bring new energy into her life.

What does a house mean in a dream?

At home with yourself
A House Can Be the Dreamer to Some Extent

Dream Answer 296

A house can represent the dreamer to some extent because it is the framework out of which one lives. This is especially the case if it was a house in which the dreamer once lived.

The ages the dreamer was when living in the house (from birth to five years old, from age 12 to 16 years old, etc.) is important. There is something about the dreamer’s present psychodynamics that is situationally similar to the dreamer’s earlier psychodynamics at a specific developmental stage reflected in the dream.

The different areas of the house correspond roughly to different areas of the dreamer’s life. Mental or intellectual processes are associated with the upper floors or roof. An open roof may be a comment on how open minded the dreamer’s mind is, how the dreamer does not protect his thoughts efficiently, or how incomplete and unfinished his or her thoughts are in the sense of being “under construction.”

The family room may be demonstrating family dynamics. The dining room can be associated with how people in the home nurture one another. The garage can represent how people plan to move within their lives.

The living room represents the dreamer’s living space in her life. The kitchen can stand for his creativity since the cook prepares nurturing and creative combinations of food in the kitchen. The subterranean basement can often be a sign of the subconscious because it underlies the reality of the dreamer’s life.

Buildings can signal different portions of the dreamer’s life. Resorts may represent the dreamer’s recreational life or may simply be a “last resort.” Skyscrapers indicate cosmopolitan interests.

Farms may represent ingrained hard work values or bucolic serenity. Universities and, in particular, high schools usually indicate what the dreamer needs to learn in life. Dreams cannot resist using “high school” as a place for your “higher self” to learn.

Dreams cannot resist the metaphor of trains and train stations as a place where you “get your life on track.” Terminals frequently mean where you want to get to in life before you die (before your life is terminated). Airports often signal movement toward higher or spiritual goals in the dreamer’s life.

Shopping malls are frequent in dreams. Dreams cannot resist the play upon words. Dreams often use shopping malls to show how the dreamer has been “mauled” (malled?) in life usually in the person’s career or business life as a shopping mall is a commercial community.

Apartments often suggest only a part, and probably a transitional part, is going to be addressed in the dream. The setting of the dream is almost always important, especially the initial setting. The opening scene often signals what the dream is going to be about. The setting shows the field or area of the dreamer’s life where the subconscious psychodynamics are going to be played out. The above meanings should be seen as tentative hypotheses that the dreamer can confirm or give additional information about.

Calming the Tiger Within

49071_700x
Calming the Tiger Within

This stunning picture is of a Buddhist monk sharing his meal with a tiger. His inner peace is so strong that the tiger feels it, is not threatened by him, and is able to modulate tiger instinct. This could be a model of how to deal with the vastly different parts of each person’s mind.

In dreams, at the first level, each creature and character in the dream represents a part of the mind or psyche. If this were a dream, the tiger would represent the shadow, often the aggressive side of our instinctual nature. This instinctual nature needs to be tamed and not eliminated. The monk would typically represent an altruistic action part of the subconscious.

The Shadow energy is vital for self-defense. It also is our “get up and go” energy needed to complete any work, projects, or competition successfully. The Shadow has to allow other parts of the personality to cooperate with it or disaster unfolds.

Dream 269: Saving Face

Send in the clowns
Send in the clowns

Dream 269:

A 32-year-old woman dreamed of an image of her face with a huge number of stitches which covered her face almost like a mask.

Interpretation
Her job was in security for a federal building. She had to thoroughly search each person who entered the building. It often was necessary to be assertive and even abrupt with difficult people.

In dreams, a mask is it defense that hides who you really are. She thought that she had to put on a stern façade which was not like her real personality. The image in this dream brings to mind the saying of “saving face.” She thought that to heal herself she would have to quit the job because it was covering who she really was.

She disliked the scars which the job forced on her personality. She felt the job was ruining the image she had of herself. Consciously, she felt the job was good paying and have good benefits; however, she knew that her subconscious would eventually insist she leave the job.

What does a whale mean in a dream?

Having a Whale of a Time Mom
Look Mom! Having a Whale of a Time!

Dream 267: Riding the Whale

A nine-year-old boy dreamed he was riding a whale in a large football stadium filled with water. The whale fathomed the waters and did death-defying flips in the air. The boy somehow was unhurt. In fact, he did not even get drenched.

The whale suddenly turned and headed straight for a wall. The boy feared the giant mammal would not be able to stop in time. The dream ended without showing the outcome.

Interpretation

He recently started living with his mother. At his previous residence, there were strict rules and limitations on his range of movement. His mother fostered self-sufficiency and independence in the boy while having flexible and sensible rules that kept him safe.

Water is almost always emotion. Animals represent instinctual and natural drives. A whale in particular represents the desire for powerful emotional experiences. The dream was showing him that he now could experiment with his behavior with proper boundaries.

He fears that he will “hit a wall” with his new-found freedom. The dream ends without that happening. The dream is signaling that he is unlikely to be harmed by his guided and responsible independence.

The dream is trying to reassure him that his new environment is safe. Given the feats the whale was accomplishing at the beginning of the dream, if I were a betting man, I would bet the whale makes that turn in time. When you can ride that mammoth mammal subconscious drive without even getting really wet, it is likely that you are in for a whale of a time.

Loving the Pigs

imagesDream 262:
A forty-two-year-old man dreamt that about a police car with two beautiful blonde twenty-something women in the front seat. Each woman was holding and consoling a pig. The back doors of the police car were wide open.

Interpretation:
Women most often represent emotions in dreams. Ideal model women, like in this dream, are animas that are frequently involved in the dreamer’s healing. Cops are often referred to on the streets as “pigs.”

Policemen and soldiers usually represent the heroic masculine archetype as soldiers are willing to die for their country and the police motto is “to serve and protect.” This dream is good news as his positive emotions (the animas) are in control of his aggressive (“pig”) instincts.

Police usually have people they arrest in the back seat. That the back doors were open was showing that he relaxed his strict superego. This was indeed the case as he was avoiding being aggressive with his teenage sons and was giving them somewhat more freedom from supervision. He recently returned from combat and was learning to be a more reasonable and patient parent.

Dream 256: When I Get That Feeling, I Need Spiritual Healing

angel-09-250140612_std(2)

Dream 256: A 52-year-old woman dreamed that she had sex with a Catholic priest. She then saw the image of a Catholic nun. She then saw the image of a female Reike energy healer that she knew. This healer looked amazingly attractive and had glorious angel wings.

Interpretation– This dream is all about spirituality. She was raised Catholic. Her having sex with a priest indicates that she wants to actively integrate spirituality into her life (men are associated with action parts of the psyche while women tend to go with more emotional parts). The nun image was present because she emotionally felt she needed more spirituality in her life.

The female Reike healer had an amazing life story. She spent seven years in a wheelchair before healing herself with energy work. The image of the healer with angel wings is numinous (inspiring transcendental sacred awe in the beholder). She was amazingly attractive because she was an ideal woman, an anima figure, which is associated with healing. She wanted an active and inspired spirituality that helped heal people. The dream was symbolic of spirituality instilled in her youth that she wanted to activate to heal others through Divine power.

My Fascist Side Persecutes My Spiritual Side (Alcohol)

imagesDream 204: My Fascist Side Persecutes My Spiritual Side (Alcohol)

Dream 204: A 45-year-old manager dreamt he and a group of Jewish rabbis were hiding in an attic because Nazis were searching for them to send them to the concentration camps in the World War II Holocaust. He then saw that the group had a luminous and shining clear pyramid crystal that divided the sunlight into perfect and beautiful colors which it projected on the wall.

The next night, he dreamt the Germans were lining up the Jewish rabbi prisoners and himself in the concentration camp before a large pit. The Nazis began mowing them down with machine gun fire and the shot rabbis fell into the pit. The dreamer somehow saved himself by grabbing one of the rabbis and holding the rabbi in front of himself so that the dreamer shielded himself from the machine gun fire.

Dream 204–
Interpretation

Each group of characters represented a different part of his psyche. The Jewish rabbis represented the spiritual side of himself. The Nazis represent the intolerant, judgemental and critical part of himself that persecuted his spirituality. He had this first dream after he had been sober for three months and attended Alcoholics Anonymous.

He had successfully avoided the judgmental self-destructive part of himself. The pyramid prism is very archetypal and harkens back to ancient Egypt. Colors in dreams are usually different emotions. The dream was saying that he had seen the light and now had clear emotions with solid boundaries.

The second dream occurred after he briefly relapsed before becoming sober again. This latter dream correctly pointed out that his fascist side of his psyche had recently tried to destroy much of his spirituality. Fortunately, a remnant part of his spirituality saved him and brought him back to sobriety and the higher power spirituality of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Getting Over Work Adddiction

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Dream 195: Getting Over My Work Addiction

A 34-year-old woman dreamt that she had a baby prematurely at twenty weeks past conception. The baby looked like a little man. He looked like a mentor and manager at work that she deeply admired and tried to emulate. The baby was wrapped in a blanket with the ends of the blanket stretched and tied so that the baby was encased in a stretched blanket which hung like a hammock above the incubator.

The baby was not doing well. Finally, the baby had convulsions and fell to the floor. A doctor she liked told her, “Don’t worry, that happens here all the time.” She then heard an overriding voice that sounded like the mentor she admired that said, “I found God and sobriety.”

Dream 195 Interpretation

This women’s mentor took another job and left her workplace about twenty weeks ago. She had to do all the work she performed before and fill in for his position as well. She barely knew enough to do all the functions of her transformed position.

Her being the mother of a 20-week-old baby symbolized the birth of her new work position which was twenty weeks old. She felt that her mentor left his position prematurely before she learned all the necessary functions. The baby represented her new work psyche which she felt had been “stretched and hung out to dry” (similar to the baby in the incubator.)

The good doctor was warning her that she was likely to crash if she continued on her chosen course. The overriding voice from her mentor was advising her to avoid being addicted to work (since he said he found sobriety) and to be more spiritual (he said he found God.) She decided to heed the words of her subconscious. She decided to spend less time at work, look for a new job and pursue her spiritual interests.

My Creativity Is Voracious and Is Eating Me Alive–This Is for the Birds

PR angel: at the International Birdman Competition in Bognor.Dream 191: My Creativity Is Eating Me Up

A 30-year-old man dreamt that he was looking at apartments in the town where he grew up. The first apartments were all desolate and decrepit and did not look fit for human habitation. He came upon an apartment complex which was well-built. As he looked up at the multi-storied complex, he saw bird men sitting in a row on a ledge. These half human, half bird men were just sitting there inactive, with an occasional ruffling of feathers.

The dream shifted to him being inside one of these luxury apartments. He remembered trying to go into the kitchen, but a bird man blocked his way. He was then surrounded by bird men in the living room.  The bird men began eating him.

Dream 191 Interpretation

His early life was confusing to the point that he ran away from home when he was twelve. He lived on the streets, staying with friends, most of whom lived in apartments. The early run down apartments in the dream were an accurate depiction of his early life which, of course, had a major impact upon him.

The high-rise apartments are describing his more recent development. He was a complex person who wrote poetry that was quite good. Birds can represent freedom, and he was a very self-reliant and independent man. The birds are inactive early in the dream. Flight is often indicative of spirituality. His spirit not flying was ruffling his feathers.

He did not have a job that he could tolerate. He felt compelled to write, but had recently stopped writing because of depression. The dream is saying that he wants to create (the kitchen is a place of creativity), but he had writer’s block. Not writing was making him depressed, it was figuratively eating him up.

Is This a Vision Dream?

angel-09-250140612_std(2)

Is this a dream of a visitation from a loved one in a dream like “The Sixth Sense” movie or is the dream symbolic? In what follows, it is usually more comprehensive to consider the dream to be both:

Dream 203: Take Care of Your Little Boy

A 34-year-old man dreamt that his recently deceased mother was hugging his son who was six years old. The mother was nodding approvingly toward the dreamer as she hugged his son.

Dream 203 Interpretation

The dreamer noted that this dream seemed almost real. So real that we could classify this dream as a vision dream. Mother in the dream was his mother introject since each character in a dream represents a part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation.

If we look at this dream symbolically, his emotions were giving approval as to how he was taking care of his son because the mother introject is often the foundation of emotions. The dreamer recently stopped negative activities and dedicated himself to being a good father to his son. His subconscious approved.

Mom would be proud. If we consider this to be a vision dream, then it simply is what it is. Which one is it?
