In the dream, my husband’s ex wife is in our house. She is bragging how she just had a baby even though she knows I cannot have one. I keep crying and feel hurt. She laughs and torments me, saying that even if I my tied tubes were reversed, I could not have a child.
Sad, upset, hurt. I want to have a child.
Main Life Issues:
My tubes are tied; have been trying to find a way to have a child with my husband.
Someone’s limitations cause great pain at the hands of another.
Husband’s Ex: A competitor, an enemy; in this case, someone who mocks and causes pain.
Enemy in my home: In another’s space, invading someone’s space; metaphor for feeling vulnerable in her own space.
Bragging: Lording it over another.
Having a baby: A successful outcome, what dreamer wants.
She laughs at me: Causing deliberate pain, taking pleasure in another’s pain; mirrors how the dreamer feels – every infant she sees is a stab through the heart.
Told cannot have a child: What dreamer fears; confronted with one’s fears in order to face them.
What the dream Means:
You feel a lot of pain at not being able to have a child and every time you see an infant with its mother, it stabs your heart. Some dreams are a digestion system for painful emotions. This one mirrors how you feel and even though it is painful, the dream helps you digest that hurt so that you can feel better. The dream does NOT say you cannot have a child - it confronts you with your fear of not being able to give birth. To succeed, you may have to deal with your fear and pain without feeling mocked or overwhelmed.
Bottom Line: The dream invites you to handle your feelings and find your strength so that you can concentrate on making your wish come true. Getting past the pain will allow you to focus on what is possible instead of being dragged down by what does not work.
