Dream from the mailbag:
So, last night I dreamt of this guy that I like being gay he had purple nail polish on his hands and peach colour top. When I saw him he was at my relatives house with tons of other people singing a song, one that I don’t know. What does this dream mean.
Thank you for sending me your dream. I have a few ideas that might help to point you in the direction toward understanding.
…this guy that I like being gay…he had purple nail polish on his hands and peach colour top.
Consider why you might see this person that you have affection for as just naturally unavailable to you or not attracted to you because of something you have no control over, like your gender or sexual preference.
Sometimes, I think when we dream, we see in a clever or very on-the-nose sort of way of describing either how we are thinking and feeling about people and situations in our life from a new point of view so that you might take a moment to look at things from a slightly different way. When we see people we know acting peculiar or out of character, a few different things could be going on. Sometimes we have treated someone a certain way without even knowing it and later upon reflection can see that our thinking or reactions to a situation might best have been handled in different way.

Sometimes, when we see people we know in dreams, they can represent similar relationship characteristics of another important element of our life. Like, the guy you like is playing gay in your dream because he is really representing another relationship with a person that you are close too, maybe have latent feelings for but can’t have. Perhaps he is playing the role of a female family friend that you feel is oddly like the guy you like…
Or maybe, you observed and interpreted on an unconscious level the understanding that this person gay or unavailable to you and should be considered more like a relative than a sexual interest. Sometimes we mistake a spiritual connection for a physical one. Perhaps he is just one of many in a crowd of family and others, all singing their own songs.
All in all it think perhaps your dream is reflecting the idea of someone on the outside looking in. A point of view that the man you want is hopelessly unavailable to you, and not only that, he is also apart of the rest of the world who seems to know the words to the song and you don’t even feel like you know what is going on. Or maybe your subconscious has picked up on latent behaviors about this dude you’re hot for and wants to soften the blow a little. Either way, I encourage you to find your group, wherever that is, and sing along next time.
Hope this helps!
