Boyfriend naked and shy…

Boyfriend nakedDream: I had a dream where I saw my boyfriend naked. When he saw me, he was shy because he was naked so he faced me with his back, and then turned his face to look at me.

DreamsMaster: Nudity in a dream generally represents being exposed or vulnerable. In this dream, it’s your boyfriend who’s naked or exposed, not you. Do you feel that lately you’ve been seeing him for who he really is, beneath the surface? Has he been revealing a lot of himself to you, perhaps more than usual, and are you feeling a bit uncomfortable or shy about that?

When someone close like your boyfriend is in your dream, it’s tempting to interpret the dream as if it’s about him. But what’s important to remember is that it’s still your dream and your projections. So in this case, although he’s the one who is naked and shy about how much is being revealed, the dream is more a statement about how you feel about how much is being exposed, and about the level of intimacy growing between the two of you.



No dream symbol can be separated from the individual who dreams it, and there is no definite or straightforward interpretation of any dream.

– Carl Jung, Man and His Symbols

He asks if I love him…

if I love him, beautiful oceanDream:   I’m in a house with an unknown person. He asks if I love him. I look out of the window and see a beautiful ocean.

DreamsMaster:   I see three main parts to this dream: An unknown person, the question of love, and a beautiful ocean. Let’s take each piece separately and then pull them together.

1) An unknown person: How would you describe this person? For example, what color hair did he have? What was he wearing? Did you find him attractive? Why or why not? Come up with at least three words to describe his personality. Does this description remind you of anyone you know today, or perhaps of someone you would like to know? Taking this a step deeper into dream symbolism, could this description fit an innermost part of you that needs more love and reassurance?

2) Love: How do you feel when he asks if you love him? Are you annoyed by the question, or do you find it romantic? Do you ponder the question, and try to decide whether or not you do have loving feelings inside? Does an answer evolve?

3) Window to a beautiful ocean: Water in a dream often represents one’s emotional state. In this dream, you’re looking at a beautiful ocean. This says to me that you’ve got a wealth of emotion inside of you, just waiting to be tapped.

Ultimately, the key to the dream’s meaning lies within you. But if this were my dream, I’d pull the pieces together this way:

There’s a part of me that needs reassurance that I’m lovable. I look outside myself for this reassurance, but in reality I can only get it from within. Once I believe in myself as being lovable, I’ll be able to unleash the emotion inside of me and fully engage in a loving relationship.

Married to a TV star…

dreams about celebrities, dream about TV starDream: In my dream I’m married to Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice and he is very nice and protective of me.

DreamsMaster: To understand what this dream means, start by thinking about how you would describe Sonny Crockett to someone who never heard of him. For example, if it were my dream, I would use the following adjectives to describe this character:

Sonny Crockett = attractive, intelligent, brave, maintains law & order, upholds justice, takes part in the war against drugs

Those are my own projections onto that character. What would you add or change in your description?

Next, think about how you personally identify with those character traits. The fact that you’re married to this person represents a level of intimacy or identification with him – the two of you are “joined together” on some level.

You also mention that he’s very “nice and protective” of you. Perhaps a part of you wishes for a person like this to enter your life and take care of you. But in reality, these traits you admire in Sonny Crockett are actually present within you – you don’t need to look outside yourself to find them. Be Sonny Crockett, and you’ll attract a Sonny Crockett into your life!

Housekeeper having sex…

Housekeeper having sexDream:  I dreamt that a housekeeper was having sex with my husband.

DreamsMaster:  From the way you phrased it, I’m guessing this housekeeper is not someone you know. If this is the case, then it’s likely this dream character represents an aspect of yourself.

How would you describe this housekeeper? What does a housekeeper represent to you? To me, a housekeeper represents someone in service to someone else. If it were my dream, I might be feeling as if it were my obligation to service my husband sexually. (Remember, this is only my own projection onto your dream, which I’m merely offering as a possible interpretation for your consideration.)

If this line of interpretation doesn’t fit for you, perhaps the housekeeper does not represent an aspect of you, but instead represents another person in your life. Is there anyone you suspect has been having an intimate connection with your husband? Another important thing to consider is what feelings were evoked for you in the dream. Were you angry? Interested? Disinterested?

One more thought that comes to mind is whether or not you have been feeling connected with your husband recently. Whether the housekeeper in the dream represents you or someone else, either way the dream suggests a lack of intimacy between you and your husband. The physical act of sex may be occurring, but is it intimacy?

Sex with friend’s wife…

Sex with friend's wifeDream:  I had a dream I was having sex with my friend’s wife. What does this dream mean?

DreamsMaster:  This dream could mean different things, based on what’s going on for you personally in your life right now.

For example, if in your waking world you have a strong physical attraction to your friend’s wife, then the dream may be providing you with a safe and socially acceptable outlet for that urge.

If you do not have a strong attraction to her physically, are there other aspects about her that you admire? In this case, joining with her intimately in the dream could symbolize a desire to join more closely with those aspects of yourself.

If in your waking world you don’t like this woman at all, then the dream may be suggesting you look more closely at the reasons why. What you don’t like about her may be some shadow side of yourself that you need to come to better terms with.

If you have neither positive nor negative feelings toward this woman, the fact that she’s your friend’s wife could actually represent a desire to have a closer relationship with this friend, not necessarily physically but in some other way that increases the bond between you.

As you read through these possibilities, did one strike you as more fitting than the rest? If not, to add further clarity, think about what occurred the day or night before the dream, and see if you can connect any of those thoughts and feelings with the feelings that you experienced in the dream.
