Wet Dream

I had a “wet” dream last night. There was hordes and hordes of men. To be exact, Korean men.

I was looking at some pictures taken by a friend. The pictures were awesome. The scenery was spellbinding. I was particularly interested in one photo of Korean men in white loin cloth, catching red herrings with their bare hands. They ushered the fishes into a corner and then, grabbed them and threw them on land. I could see many, many red fishes flipping on the coarse sandy beach.

I was so immersed by the picture and slowly, I was standing there – live and watching the men catching the feisty red herring.

Not long, I was transported back to reality and flipping at the pictures again. I saw a jelly fish-like creature, with colors of the tail of a peacock fish, swimming gracefully in the sea. In another picture, a man’s head emerged from a tiny opening of the jellyfish-like creature, which looked like a mouth. I was horrified.

The man’s face was hostile and looked ready to bite.

I was transported back again – swimming in the sea with the colorful jellyfish-like merman and saw its human face emerging from the tiny hole.

I didn’t know what to do but was struck by awe. Then, out of a sudden, one of the Korean men in white loin cloth was swimming side by side with the creature and they were having conversation like long lost friends. I followed them closely from behind.

They slowly swam deeper into the colorful bed of reef. I suddenly realized that I could not breathe in water. I waddled in the water frantically. I woke up.

It was indeed a very surreal and colorful dream – the sea water was cold, the coarse sand on the beach was prickly to feet, the redness of the herring is blinding, all the men in white loin cloth were very well built, and one image I could not forget is the colorful peacock fish-tail jellyfish- like creature with a human head.

I didn’t do much last night to contribute to this dream. I watched the last 10 minutes of Invasion and an entire episode of Las Vegas, followed by re-run of Project Runway. I remembered the jellyfish-like merman slightly resembled the girl’s colorful dress in the Hotlink Advertisement though.

I tried to use my artistic skills to good use this morning, but I couldn’t get the picture of the merman quite right. Oh- forget about it.

I googled for the interpretation.

The mermaid symbolises the Anima- the female aspect of the male psyche. As part woman, part fish, she embodies the mystery that haunts the male psyche. She is the bringer of secret wisdom from the depths of the unconscious-represented by the sea. She is also the seductive siren who may lure the active male energies of the conscious mind into the uncharted depths of the unconscious. A man who dreams of a mermaid may have fears of being ‘drowned’ by the feminine or by the unconscious. In a woman’s dream, a mermaid might express doubts about her femininity. In some dreams, a mermaid can represent a fear of sex.

Fish can represent insights into the unconscious. (The unconscious is represented by the sea). Jung said that fish are often symbols used by the dream to describe psychic happenings or experiences that suddenly dart out of the unconscious and have a frightening or redeeming effect. Fish caught in a net and brought to the surface may represent insights emerging into the light of consciousness. Fish are also a common symbol of fertility. Your dream may be indicating that you are experiencing a period of personal growth. Fish are a product of the emotions and intuition as opposed to the materialistic earthbound approach to life.

RED: Red represents passion and sexuality. It can also represent anger or blood- the colour of our life force.
ORANGE: Orange is usually associated with balance and healing. It is the passions refined.
YELLOW: Often associated with artistic inspiration yellow is sometimes considered the colour of the coward.
GREEN: The colour of nature brings new life and hope. Its negative association is with jealousy
BLUE: Blue is the spiritual colour and is claimed to be the colour that healers have in their auric field. Blue brings harmony and, like the sky, it implies freedom. And of course, it can sometimes represent depression when we get the ‘blues’.
PURPLE: This is the colour or Royalty and profound spiritual knowledge.

Huh? Again, Sigmund Freud is right? All dreams have something to do with sex? Even if it is not a real wet dream?

  1. Yuin: I am not a guy mah.. no need cold shower.

    Kleio, Shine, CW: YES! YES!! Wah.. is it obvious that I am so sexually frustrated?

    VJ: Must get married then only do meh? Hahahahaha.

  2. Korean men in loin cloth – forget about them being Korean; you are really after their butts (that’s why they are in loincloth). It means you are attracted sexually in a physical way as well, to men.

    Sea – represents sex. At first you are just looking – the merman appears first and threatening = sex to you is threatening, in your subconscious. Then, you are swimming and you find the loin clothed man swimming too. That’s your wish, sex becomes okay if you are with someone you are attracted to and will ‘save’ you from the unsavoury part of sex you dislike ie the merman.

    BUT then!…they swim along and are buddies, and you could not breathe!

    ..so, there is conflict in your subconscious about sex: you are firstly repelled by it, but it is okay if with someone you are attracted to, though you are still apprehensive.

    This dream tells you the conflict is present, and is calling on you to resolve it.

    Good luck.
