Been having naughty dreams about a co-worker? Whether they make you blush or vomit, your co-worker dreams are not only common… understanding the dream is well worth your while because odds are, that dream is actually trying to help you improve yourself !
Leslie, a 31 year old client of mine was having recurring dreams of having sex with a co-worker she could not stand. The dreams were beginning to make her feel even more uncomfortable around him so she came to me to help her figure out why her brain was doing this to her.
I assured her that as much as the dreams were creeping her out, they were actually good for her because they were urging her to “come together” on some level with this guy, for the sake of work. Sex in real life is the uniting of two bodies. To the dreaming mind, sex is the uniting of two mindsets or qualities. Leslie’s dreams didn’t mean she wanted to unite with his body… they meant that she needed to unite with his mind.
Leslie’s dream shows us how sex dreams can mean we need to have a meeting of the minds in order to make co-existing and co-working more efficient. But what if you don’t really have much to do with a particular co-worker during the day but you find yourself knocking boots at night? All you need to do is ask yourself what stands out about that person. Is he really good with computers? Does the boss seem to favor her? Maybe he’s easy going and doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. There is very likely a quality he or she possesses that your dreaming mind feels you would do well to take on as your own.
Work is a social setting so there are many politics involved. It is also vital to our livelihood which is why you will find yourself dreaming of work more often than you would like. Your dreaming mind is figuring out your work related issues for you so you can feel comfortable there and advance yourself on up the ladder. The sex with a co-worker dreams are the most important of all work related dreams because they are showing you who you need to focus on getting along with as well as what you can add to your own personality or behavior in order to better yourself and more easily reach your career goals.
