plant beard/ grandma baby

In this dream, I was growing plants sprouts on my chin like a beard. Since it wasn't hair or it was plant, I wasn't sure if electrolysis hair removal would work. (In reality, I am considering chin surgery). My sister who I', not close to made fun of me saying something like the chin surgery caused it as she pointed out the saggy skin or unshapely skin at the bottom of my chin. (I'm a female without a beard in real life).

In another dream in another month, my deceased grandmother was alive and dating a younger man in his late 20s or 30s. I was shocked the hear that she was pregnant since I can no longer get pregnant myself. I didn't think she would live long after the birth of the baby. Since it seemed like a fling with this younger man, I was hoping that he wouldn't want to keep the baby because I'd like to raise it myself.

If it helps, my sister recently discussed aging or how she got a few hairs on her chin after a hysterectomy. Because I alos got a hysterectomy, I was worried I would alos get chin hairs.

Anonymous,
No doubt the experience of your sister growing a beard and the fear you may also was a stimulus for the dreams as well as a real fear. But the dream message goes deeper than that. It seems to have to with masculine aspects of strength and ability to 'go it alone'. Could it have to do with new relationships {dating younger men} and wisdom in making decisions related to relationships {deceased grandmother being alive}? Here is a breakdown of the images/actions that may help in understanding the possibilities as they have to do with your emotional life.
Note-Dreams are about the emotions and as an experienced dream analyst I can discern the emotional energies but without having full knowledge of your whole life I can only provide an outline of what those emotional energies are.

First Dream
-growing plant sprouts on my chin like a beard
----plant-potential growth
----chin-strength of character
----beard-masculine aspects of power/assertiveness
-wasn't hair/plant-attitudes that need growth
-electrolysis-decomposition/removal of deep seeded attitudes
-saggy skin-defenseless ego

This dream seems to suggest a need for strong character, being able to be assertive and able to grow on your own without assistance. Are you in a relationship now? It may be if you are it is because you need support {emotional and/or physical} and if you are not your attitude is you need to be because of the needed support. Or/and the dream may be pointing to the need to develop attitudes so you can go it alone, without assistance. These would be attitudes you developed earlier in life {developed in childhood}. If you are not in a relationship and are on your own then the dream may be addressing the fears and problems associated with that.

Second Dream
-deceased grandmother was alive-wisdom that needs to be used
-dating younger man-discovering new masculine aspects
-she was pregnant-wise self giving birth to new aspects
-can not longer get pregnant-needing assistance
-would not live long after birth-old attitudes will end
-fling with younger man-considering using new attitudes
-not keep baby/raise it myself-unable/not wanting to go it alone

This dream is also pointing to masculine aspects {yours} that need to be used/developed. Wisdom of making choices may be involved. You may need to get rid of old developed attitudes {from early life that unconsciously control your personality as an adult} and develop new ones. You may know you need these new attitudes {strength to go it alone} but are afraid to go down that path.

Re: plant beard/ grandma baby

Thanks. Could this dream be connected to fear of losing my mom in real life? She doesn't have much longer to live so I'm afraid to be all alone when she's gone.

Re: plant beard/ grandma baby

Anonymous,
It is possible. The masculine aspects you need to develop {pregnancy} may point to a need for a stronger character personality wise {to be on your own}. The 'birth of the baby' and living longer could point to a need to develop the needed masculine aspects so you can live 'longer' on your own. The sagging skin is not part of the dream but could be related to a 'defenseless ego', not able to go it on your own. You didn't list your age but this could also point to fears of aging to go with being on your own. If you have been dependent on your mother would point to a need to 'grow' masculine aspects to be on your own. I think this may be the primary message of the dream. Your mother's health would lend itself to the urgency of obtaining these masculine qualities.
