I am hanging out with my boyfriend and his family. At one point, his brother and I are alone in a room together and my boyfriend says before leaving, “Go ahead and kiss. It’ll be fine.” His brother kisses me. At first it is hurried and tense but then our lips soften and it is very sensuous and sweet.
Kissing in dreams is about first contact with a quality or virtue. In this case, it is not meant to be taken literally and the “brother” in the dream was not the real brother in waking life. This dream is about a metaphor of connecting with a new part of myself which is a quality that my boyfriend already has . The purpose of Dreamwork is to uncover new qualities, virtues, and capacities and one of the metaphors for integration is physical intimacy.
