Heritage, family and sexuality

Hello, people!
This site is amazing. Thanks so much.
Well... I dreamed that I had inherited from my father a great piece of land with the most beautiful houses ever built. The interior of these homes was artsy and luxurious. The land was wholesome and so green. There was such a delicious breeze. My father's siblings, however, refused to recognize me as part of the family and allow me this land and the houses. While they were discussing on this issue and speaking bad things about me, my grandfather from my mother's side, appeared among that people and walked towards my direction to hug me.
The next day I found myself walking through this beautiful land, but now there was discrete tombstones. Out of the blue, a guy shows up as my brother and says it's a shame we haven't seen each other for such a long time. He had cleft lip and wore a black suit. Strangely, we began to kiss and I took off his clothes. As I did that, I realized he had no sexual organs.
Next thing, I'm leaving this land and heading back home. My brother takes a ride with me, but he drops off at another city where he shares a flat with a married lesbian couple. As soon as I get home and see my mother, I wake up.
My father is still alive and we do not relate. I do not have a brother. My grandfather is dead, and I loved him very much.
I'd appreciate your opinions. Any thoughts?
Thank you.

Re: Heritage, family and sexuality

Anonymous,
I need your gender before I can provide a proper analysis of your dream. I have pretty much finished an analysis thinking you are a male but looking at the gender you {did not} post I am not sure. There are several images where gender can make a difference in the interpretation of the symbols. I could post that but there could be parts that are completely off if your gender is female. Please provide your gender and I will post my analysis.

Re: Heritage, family and sexuality

Anonymous,
Being a female doesn't change a lot about my analysis but does affect it in minor ways. The reason I need your gender is because a man in a woman's dream {especially unknown/unnamed men} would symbolize your masculine qualities. This would hold true with the dream brother since you do not have a real brother {which if you did could point to aspects of that relationship}. Here is my analyze.

The opening of the dream suggests there are positive traits/aspects related to your father that have been passed down to you. If there are not positive personal qualities then the inherited aspects could be material/monetary. These aspects would normally add to a positive part of your life/personality as an adult but because there are unresolved issues related to 'father' relationship {that may have affected your personality/character} you are not able to utilize the positive aspects as you should This could point to both inner qualities about yourself as well as in the relationship with your father}. There are bad things that need to be understood {the unconscious energies associated with the father relationship} so you can learn to accept the them and find solutions. They likely influence if not control your personality.

Despite the 'positives' you have 'inherited' there are tombstones in your life. These would represent either things that are hidden away or repressed or/and experiences that have left a 'mark on you that need to be understood and need to be put to rest {this is a function of dreams, helping the dreamer realize the unconscious energies that cause emotional conflicts and find a resolution for them}. The brother is an aspect of yourself and in your dream would symbolize masculine characteristics that needs to 'show up' {be integrated} within yourself so there is balance within your psyche. Not having shown up for a long time may indicate these masculine aspects were deminished because of early life experiences. These characteristics have caused a separation from who you should be and who you are and you are not able to express yourself because of the experiences {cleft lip}. You need to discover and embrace those lost characteristics/unconscious energies so to understand their influence and remove the negative influences. They may have affected aspects of your natural self and caused you to not to be able to function as you should related to these aspects {possibly sexually}.

Your other self {the normal person you should be} may at times have caused a separation from reality where the negative influences from early life take control of your conscious actions. In other words you may react/act in a manner that is unconsciously driven and you are not consciously aware of. This other self, those aspects that are out of balance, needs to be recognized and resolved, overcoming the negative emotional issues {that you are married to/have unconscious control over you}.

Summary
The dream is addressing current issues to do with your father {ongoing} but also the underlying issues from early life {also involving your father} that formed your personality and who you are as an adult. These early life issues are unconscious motivators for conscious actions as an adult. I sense a lack of positive masculine qualities which would be related to the early life issues {and due to a lack of a proper relationship with your father}. It could affect relationships with men or/and have caused a lack of strength of character when it comes to certain conscious actions in your life {instead of being objective you may be too emotional}. Look at your past and determine what experiences there were as a child that would have caused issues in your adult life.
