A Dream About A Flirtation: Post #2

Today we’re working with a dreamer who understands her dream, but wants to know how to deal with the message her dream has brought to her. We want to spend more time this week helping her answer that question, so today we’ll combine two of the steps that are part of dream interpretation: We’ll analyze the symbols, and then we’ll reconstruct the dream in its metaphoric version. If you’re new to the blog, scroll down to any number of former posts and you’ll see examples of these two steps explained in more detail.

Today’s post will be longer than is typical.

Tell me about…
* Library:  A place of learning and study.
* After hours:  A quieter time, when most of the activity of the day is over. You can be really contemplative then.
* Solitude:  A sense of inner peace and meditation.
* Zac Efron:  Young, sexy, attractive, a turn on, fun.
* Gorgeous:  Titillating in a physical way. I feel aroused and drawn toward him.
* Coming on to me:  It’s the first step toward physical, sexual interaction. He’s preparing me for intimacy.
* I don’t mind:  I am open to this.
* Teasing and being playful:  It’s an exploration and a testing of limits and boundaries to see if there are any.
* Foreplay:  Activity just before a more intense kind of intimacy. It’s stimulating.
* Steamy:  Intense physical bonding. No holding back.
* Personification of fun:  Pure enjoyment with no sense of reservation or caution.
* Laughing:  Unadulterated pleasure.
* An unknown woman:  She seems severe and a killjoy. She’s an intruder.
* Tells us off:  Admonishes us. Puts us through a guilt trip.
* Zac is married:  Already committed to another to pursue growth and living together.
* Shouldn’t be here:  Does not belong in this place with me.
* Picks up his shirt:  It’s his covering, a form of receding from intimacy, and from me.
* Figure it out:  There is confusion between us and we need more understanding.
* Ruined our fun:  Robbed us of pleasure. Destroyed our exploration of bonding.
* Glares:  She’s angry and judgmental. She wants me to know that.
* Shame on you:  It’s verbal punishment, an admonition.
* Doing the dishes:  Stereotypic female role. It’s like putting me back in my place of submission.

The retold dream
I’m in a place of learning and study inside of myself. It’s a quieter time when most of the activity within me is over and I can be really contemplative. I have a sense of inner peace and meditation. I look up and see a young, sexy, attractive, masculine part of myself. It’s a turn on, fun. This is titillating in a physical way. I feel aroused and drawn toward this part of me. These two parts of me take the first step toward physical, sexual interaction. We’re preparing for intimacy. I am open to this. We’re involved in an exploration and a testing of limits and boundaries to see if there are any. This part of me and I are involved in activity just before a more intense kind of intimacy. It’s stimulating. Intense physical bonding. No holding back. Pure enjoyment with no sense of reservation or caution. Unadulterated pleasure. Suddenly, there is a female part of me that seems severe and a killjoy. This part of me is an intruder. This part of me admonishes us. Puts us through a guilt trip. This feminine part of me says that the masculine part of me is already committed to another to pursue growth and living together. It does not belong in this place with me. The masculine part of me retrieves his covering, a form of receding from intimacy, and from me. There is confusion between us and we need more understanding. We have been robbed of pleasure. Our exploration of bonding is destroyed. This female part of me is angry and judgmental. She wants me to know that through verbal punishment and admonition. This female part of me tells me that I need to be in a stereotypic female role. It wants me back in my place of submission.

More on Friday.
