Meeting with Martina IV


I have sold the family home, packed up all my belongings in a large Winnebago ( which is much larger on the inside, than on the outside) and I am travelling around Australia, alone. I have arrived in Adelaide and I am staying at a caravan park there. It is night time and I am walking around the park and I meet you, Martina. You are staying in the park as well. We are both excited to see each other. We are sitting in my Winnebago chatting and catching up. We aren't discussing dreams. I invite you to spend the night with me, in my bed, I tell you that I want to make love to you. You say yes. We undress and get into bed. We are making love and I ask you; should I be wearing protection? You say yes. I have a packet of condoms in my suitcase but rummaging through my suitcase I can't find them. I search a sports bag and think I have them but it is something else. I am searching through drawers and boxes. We discuss other options. We even discuss the possibility of us having children together. Suddenly the mood turns sombre as you announce that you want to sell dreamcubator and you want to cut your work back to 1 or 2 days a week.

Dream notes and associations

I seem to be carrying a lot of baggage in this dream. I am wondering if this is the emergent phenomenon emerging from our recent dream work. I had this dream after reading your latest email re my orgasm dream. I have had dreams before where you are I are intimate with each other but this is the first time we have had sex with each other and I was upfront in asking you for it. Not sure what has happened to Penny in this dream. I think this about me having recently retired. There was a sense in the sombre mood that you and Pete had separated. Not sure what the last part was about.
At the start of the dream I sell our home and at the end of the dream you are talking about selling dreamcubator. Any significance?

My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening

excitement, erotic, frantic, sombre

Hi Lindsay, there’s a strong theme of packing up and cutting back in this dream that does sound related to your recent retirement. I’m curious about the discussion of the possibility of having children – highly symbolic of exploring new beginnings/possibilities/projects. Also interesting to note the sombre mood at the end related to cutting back work.

There’s also the theme of safety or protection in union or integration as highlighted by unprotected sex in the dream.
