Last night I dreamed that I was going to have sex with Lenny Kravitz. He was waiting for me in a bedroom and I was in my co-worker’s bathroom for an hour getting ready: showering, shaving, putting on makeup, etc. I was wondering if he would fall asleep waiting for me, and kept looking at the clock because it was 10pm and I was afraid I would be late getting home. Boy I wish that dream was real! - Christine 44, Wear, NH
Lauri: In real life what are you preparing for that seems to be taking longer than anticipated? Lenny Kravitz is a clue... and a very nice clue at that! When a celebrity makes a cameo appearance in our dreams the message they hold for us can usually be found in a role that they have played, a movie they have been in or in the title or lyrics of a song that they sing. When you think of Lenny, what comes to mind? Whatever it is, that is where we are going to get our "Aha! Moment."
Christine replies: I’m having a hard time pinpointing an answer to your question but I’ve been wanting to change careers and get my high school diploma to go to college, but that isn’t something I‘ve started working on. I also haven’t been losing weight and I’ve been attempting that for some time now. And I do remember being paranoid thinking he would think I was fat.
Lauri replies: This may be what your dream is connected to, how long YOU are taking to do what is necessary to get that diploma, change careers AND ESPECIALLY lose weight. This is where I think Lenny Kravitz comes in. Most recently he was in The Hunger Games. He must represent the hunger you have to deal with in order to lose the weight you want that is unfortunately taking too long to come off.
Christine replies: Yes! This totally makes sense!
FASCINATING DREAM FACT: In his autobiography, Ogilvy on Advertising, David Ogilvy describes a dream in which a baker drives his horse-drawn wagon down a country road. After having the dream, Ogilvy wrote a now-famous Pepperidge Farm bread commercial with just that script.
