Very rarely are other people's dreams interesting...except when they're about sex. This week dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg helps a man who just can't stop dreaming about the woman who broke his heart.
I am a 27-year-old grad student who has been happily married for two years. I pay for my studies by working as an assistant instructor at the university where I study. The other night (while lying next to my husband) I had a dream about one of my students who is about seven years younger than me and a bit of a class clown. He is not someone I would have found attractive in college, so it was a complete surprise to see him appear in a dream in which we had a lot of really satisfying sex. The next day in class I felt really awkward and since then he has reappeared in a couple more dreams. What is going on?
Does she want to give her student a lesson in bed or does she just really like that Police song, "Don't Stand So Close to Me"? Find out after the jump (right after you send us your own dreams!):
Lauri Loewenberg: Alas, that is usually the case with sex dreams. They are usually about someone we would not -- nor should not -- touch with a ten foot pole, rather than someone more practical like the chiseled, dreamy eyed, UPS guy! What often seems like a cruel trick the dreamweaver is playing on us is actually an important message from our own intuitive, dreaming self...a message that is actually about our behavior! Our dream lovers usually aren't playing themselves but instead are standing in for a quality we lack and need to unite into our own behavior and personality. You described him as the class clown, which is a good indication he is not a terribly serious person and may also be fun to hang around. Are these qualities you could use right now? Are you too serious? Have you not been letting loose and allowing yourself to have a good time lately? Is there something going on you need to laugh off? Your dreams may be telling you to bring those qualities into your behavior right now just as you brought your student into your love den in your dreams!
