Penis Dream Meaning

Let us talk about your penis dream, if you dreamed of your own penis or someone else’s it is undeniable this is a powerful dream. The penis in dreams carries a spiritual message, the male appendage can indicate attraction and passion. Body parts in dreams is about you, maybe something bad happened in the dream or you just see a penis, essentially this dream is about your passions in life.

If the penis is what I call normal-looking then this dream can be a reminder that change is inevitable. It is also a reminder that, although change can be painful, it is often necessary in order to create something new and better. In some cases, the penis as a dream symbol can also indicate that it is time to embark on a passion that you hold.The famous dream psychologist, Sigmund Freud believed every dream we have is associated with our own inner needs that are hidden from view in waking life.

Specifically, the dream meaning of seeing your own male genitalia indicates power, prosperity, aggression, intimacy and above all focus on feeling a sense of possible frustration. Seeing other people’s genitalia in a dream can indicate possible confusion. Sometimes when we are aging and we do not feel that our body is adequate it is sometimes common to have these types of dreams – it is just a way for our body to cope.

Is this a positive or negative dream?

I am not saying that this is a negative dream, on the contrary, it is rather positive. This dream is connected to feeling something is overtaking or powering up life. To see yourself without clothes in a dream is interesting. There could be many aspects of this dream that are important to understand but to not have clothes can indicate feeling exposed. Our night-time visions can help in situations that we face in daily life, specifically to improve or understand ourselves better. If you dream of an unknown male then this can indicate that you are looking for freedom.

The human body featured in a dream indicates how we see ourselves or others. As you have already read it differs slightly the dream meaning from a male and female perspective. There is no doubt that the dream of genitals is focused on how you connect in your relationship. Often in life, we sometimes doubt our own feelings and this dream could have materialized because of this.

What do older dream books say?

In ancient dream books genitals are often connected to masculinity. If you dream of our own genitalia (if you are a man) this is associated with our own inner confidence. The dream suggests that there are various anxieties which may surround you at the moment. If you are women in your dream that somebody else has seen you change gender to a man then this can indicate that you are juggling emotions and feelings about a relationship. For a man to dream of seeing large or exaggerated penis means a desire for better relationships and this dream is connected to how you focus your own energies in life.

Did you know that dreams which feature walking up and down staircases, steps, metal ladders, or stairs in your dream, according to the Austrian dream psychologist Freud, is a representation of making love. I know it is rather shocking! But when you think about it, it kind of makes sense. In society, it is no longer required to go into lengthy sessions with a dream psychologist to decode the meaning of their dreams. Freud’s work was in the 1930's before Google and there was a lack of information.

According to Jung, Sigmund Freud was, in his work, focused on the complex human psyche. Carl Jung believed that dreams per say, were connected to the mental equilibrium and this is the reason symbols appear to us while we sleep. To him, Carl Jung, believed that as humans we innate a symbolic development which is focused on creativity.

To conclude there are so many objects in our dreams that can represent the making love of two people. In much of his writings Freud used the Phallus which he believed represented fertility and power, and male sexuality. Carl Jung did write that the penis is itself a phallic symbol and according Jung, this is a symbol of death, connection, growth, rebirth, and the life. In fact, a man named Eugene Monick who was Carl Jung’s assistant termed this the “Phallic resurrection.” The reason being was that sharp objects in dreams were connected to our own pleasure.

If you experience repetitive dreams of this nature - while you sleep, this can signify the urge to be close to someone. If your dream has stirred affiliation to your own feelings then this is simply letting you know that it is important to search for happy and content times with your partner.

in old dream folklore if a man dreams of having more than one penis this signify many children ahead. This dream can show that your desires for someone have not been recognized. It is often a symbol of new growth, and it indicates that a happy period is going to enter your life.

What is the detailed dream interpretation?

If you do not have a partner, but you dream of your own genitalia, then this shows your desire for a relationship, the good news is that you will soon settle down into a loving relationship. It is symbolic of life’s force, and the presence of this dream implies how you communicate with others which should not be ignored, and this can be for both males and females. To see the male manhood of someone you actually know during the dream (in waking life) or someone famous means that someone you know is going to reveal their secrets to you and maybe even more than you want to hear.

Urinating in a dream or feeling the need to urinate can represent the need to bottle up all your emotions, in order for a successful situation to materialize. If your dream was in relation to being intimate (you know …the act!) then there are aspects in this dream which you will need to consider.

If you are a woman and you dream of being with a man then there is a guy out there who would like very much to get closer to you, according to folklore. If you dream of being in bed with another man, (if you are a male or female) this does not necessarily mean that you feel attracted to them, in old dream lore it means you could very soon find yourself doing something that you are not normally inclined to do. This dream, this means love, compassion, and the attainment of a dream. According to biblical texts to dream of a large, erect, and disembodied genitalia is in religion associated with the Creator, and that you now have great ideas and power.

If a woman dream she changed genders and she is pregnant, it means she will have a baby boy, if she is not pregnant, it means she will come into money. This dream can also denote a chance to make money at work. To dream of someone else’s genitalia that results in the impossibility to have a relationship with another person means that you need to allow yourself to make mistakes sometimes, and that new insights and ideas often spring up from these experiences. If you're injured in the dream of this nature this suggests a difficult time in life. There is also a fear of intimacy.
