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!

Mirror image…

dreams as reflections, dream symbolDream:  I wake up in a snowy forest. A young girl walks up to me. My dream jumps to me in a tent. A dark cloud comes out of my mouth and forms the shape of a person and floats into a mirror stood near to me. I walk up to the mirror and I see my abusive father and he says, “You, me, what’s the difference.” The mirror shatters. I get shot from behind then I wake up.

DreamsMaster:  My sense from this dream is that you’re questioning whether or not you are a “mirror image” of your abusive father. A part of you feels that you are (the dark cloud that comes out of your mouth and becomes your abusive father), while another part of you desperately wants to shatter that image.

The dark cloud that comes out of your mouth… the day or night before you had this dream, did you have some sort of confrontation with a significant other, in which you said (or bit back) dark or mean things that made you identify with your father?

This dark side of you questions the difference between your father and you, but there’s a healthier part of you that knows better. Join forces with this healthier part, and the next time your father appears in a dream or in your waking imagination, stand tall and assert, “There IS a difference.” And make it so.

Killed a lion…

LionDream:  I killed a lion.

DreamsMaster:  What powerful symbolism! In order to determine what the dream means, start by defining what a lion represents to you personally.

For example, if it were my dream, these are some adjectives I would use to describe a lion: strong, powerful, protective, dangerous, wild. Would any of those descriptions fit for you as well? What other words would you use to describe a lion?

Next, provide more details about the dream:
– What events led up to you killing the lion?
– Were you feeling threatened by it?
– Was there a struggle?
– How did you kill it? Was it with weapons, or with your bare hands?
– Was it a male lion with a mane, or was it a female?
– What feelings did you have in the dream? Did you feel afraid, fearless, powerful?

As you answer all of these questions (and any others that come to mind as you run through this exercise), watch for a theme to emerge, and then see how that theme may be occurring in your waking world.

For example, let’s say the lion is behaving in a threatening manner. One possible theme could be:  I’m feeling threatened by someone or something I perceive as being very powerful and needs to be destroyed. But I am more powerful than the other, who is not really a threat after all.

Finally, once you’ve reached some satisfying conclusions about the symbolism of the lion and the theme of the dream, ask yourself, where in your life does this fit for you? Is there a [powerful, strong, wild] person in your life that you perceive as a threat that needs to be eliminated? Or, is there a [powerful, strong, wild] part of yourself that you consider threatening and feel the need to subdue?

You can see how many directions a dream can take you, and how only the dreamer can uncover the true meaning of a dream. In fact, here’s another angle this dream could take depending on the dreamer’s own personal frame of reference — Do you pay attention to astrology? If so, is there a Leo in 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.
