Relevant dream with a beautiful women

Dear Jerry,

I had a very relevant dream which may correlate to my previous dream. I would also like to state I'm become more comfortable in the presence of such women and more assertive with my sister.

Here's the dream:

This dream is in the daytime in the dream. In my front room, their is a beautiful women standing (who I knew from the past) naked and smiling at me. I am having sex and kissing her. For some reason, my grandmother (who I don't see often and lives away from me) is in the same room and I'm not even sure if she is aware of us, possibly watching from the corner of her eye. I remember my father is going to work in the morning (not in this room, however, this week, my father has morning shift!) and I hail a sigh of relief as I can be with the women the next day.

I would also like the say, I am standing 4-5 meters away from the window (which is covered with a window dressing), so people outside cannot see what's happening.

I would appreciate your analysis of this dream. Thank you for your time and generosity of analyzing this dream.

Re: Relevant dream with a beautiful women

Luke,
The sex and kissing is indicative of an acceptance of the feminine aspects. It probably has a sexual context in one aspect {conscious life} but the deeper aspects of accepting your anima would be as if not more important. Getting past those feminine barriers would important in both aspects.

Breaking down the dream further, the daylight hours and front room would be symbolic of your conscious life. The beautiful woman would serve to reflect both literal and symbolic anima associations. From your past, anima wise, would be represent 'those things that have existed previously'. That goes back to past life history and experiences. Her being naked is exposing these anima aspects so they can be understood and whatever is out of balanced brought into harmony. These things are coming together.
This is the opening part of the dream, setting the stage for what the dream is focusing.

The presence of your grandmother could be about nurturing and protection, as well as the wise feminine. I sense that would be about childhood experiences and influences {we've established the nurturing between you and your sister}. This aspect is now influencing who you are as adult {in the same room}. Literally speaking, grandmothers are often very nurturing even when parents are not. This aspect is looking over your shoulder, not sure she is aware of it, both unconscious assertions of influence.

Then the dream changes to another stage and enters the father. His presence is only felt, this being the influences and associations to him. His going to work, Is that something that has been in the way of your relationship with him? Or similar associations that have to do with 'work' {anxieties}. The morning shift {although not apart of the dream but still within the unconscious} may be a statement about early life {morning} experiences. Either way the dream seems to be stating his presence is a barrier to your feminine/anima aspects. The next day is the future which would likely say something about what is to come /needs to happen and your emotions.

The window is a window to your unconscious self. Not seeing in is not being able to see within yourself because something is covering it up {window dressing}. It may seem irreverent to some but the number 4-5 are important. add the two together and you get nine which in Jungian psyche is the number for wholeness. This may be a possible statement about what was covered up {unconscious aspects} is now being consciously seen and with that you are able to reconcile those experiences/influences that have injured your anima.

Let me know your thoughts and perhaps we will be able to gain more from the dream and the added info.

Re: Relevant dream with a beautiful women

Jerry,

Please accept my sincere apologies for my late reply.

Firstly, thank you very much for your dream analysis.

I agree that I'm starting to accept my female anima aspects as past of myself. Furthermore, my relationship with my sister has improved since the first dream I've posted and become much assertive towards my sister and women in general.

The part of the daytime, I've had experiences of women in general in the past which were favourable. Perhaps this dream is showing my the light.

Funnily enough, grandmothers are very nurturing, however, my grandmother was never really good with me, as a child, I never had a proper relationship with her.

Their is an issue of getting a job at the moment, so their are anxieties and I did see him as a barrier before which you have analysed quite well. I agree that my father leaving perhaps give the sense for what is needed to happen in order for fulfillment.

Hope this helps.

Re: Relevant dream with a beautiful women

Luke,
Better late than never. I do appreciate the response. Too often I don't receive a response. It takes time to analyze any dream and all I ask is a response to my interpretation. Often a response will provide new information that provides even more insights to the dream. Most often when a dream is posted the only thing I know about the dreamer is their age and gender. I have said often in the past I can interpret any dream, as long as I have enough personal information about the dreamer. What ever emotional issues are in the dreamer's life is reflected in their dreams, but without the ego bias of the conscious mind. I know this to be true from experience with the Dream Forum and from he positive responses to my interpretations. And most are with the limited knowledge of age and gender.

But to be completely honest about my ability to interpret dreams. Anyone who has studied Jungian dream psyche as long as I have {21 years} and possesses a good intuitive mind can interpret dreams. There are many such people. But few have a forum to practice the art as I do with this forum.

As for your dream and response. It seems the only issue, as far as images in your dream are concerned, would be the grandmother. And exactly what issue is the prime 'anxiety' in your life {the dream is likely addressing more than one}. If the dream image is not about your actual grandmother then she would represent 'wisdom' aspects related to your anima. In the dream is 'watching from the corner of her eye'. The corner of her eye may represent wiser aspects at looking at feminine issues {her eyes are your eyes}. At your age {24} this dream is likely addressing more recent more issues and not so much early life issues {at least as a primary focus of the dream}. Perhaps you have become more 'wiser' because of life experiences and you need to use that wisdom in the future.

If the dream has associations to issues of getting a job {and those anxieties} the 'daytime' could fit with daytime hours having to do with getting a job {or working daytime hours}. Something may need to be exposed {or is being exposed} about the emotions {feminine} that you need to 'integrate' {sex} in your personality. The job seeking may be an issue that is exposing your 'emotional side'. Your anxieties would fit with those type emotions. That would be the 'wise' to do and not let it get you down.

Is your father putting pressure on you? Or it could be he too is symbolic in the same order as your grandmother {not only himself but a metaphor of your masculine self}. You may be putting too much pressure on yourself. His leaving for work {your letting go of those inner pressures} allows you to put those emotional anxieties off.

This is really a short dream to give a concrete interpretation. But again knowing a little more about you does seem to offer possibilities. It could very well be the dream is addressing more than one issue. One could be the anxieties about the job thing and another could be about relationships {female}. Then too there may be a message directed at early life experiences. All dreams have at least two meanings/applications, sometimes more. If the job thing is the most pressing issue in your life I would look to that as the primary focus of the dream. Of course the language of being naked and kissing are a provocative language to describe those anxieties. But if there are issues to do with the opposite sex the mixture of those issues could be why the dream is using such language. It is using those strong, and natural, impulses to address the two issues {if not more}.

If you should have another dream post it and perhaps we can gain more insights to what this dream is trying to communicate. A series of dreams tend to expose the pattern{s} it is wanting to make you consciously aware. The dream is saying something you either don't know or don't realize. Knowing/realizing what that is will help 'ease' the emotional conflicts.
