Dream symbol Impotence


sexual disorder, erectile dysfunction, aging, stress-related strain,

For impotence one mentions colloquially also the term "man weakness". However, impotence is a medically recognized disease known as erectile dysfunction.

Some time ago psychological problems were known to trigger this disease, but nowadays it is seen differently. In most cases, the cause is an organic failure or even a premonition of heart disease.

There is a connection between age and erectile weakness, because it mostly affects older gentlemen between the ages of sixty and seventy, and is thus considered a sign of aging.

What is behind the dream image impotence ? Man's fear of weakness ? What does this mean for a woman when she dreams about it ?

General dream interpretation

"Impotence" as a clinical picture may indicate, within the general dream interpretation, a permanent burden on the dreamer in everyday life. It illustrates that he feels overburdened in real life and that this brings negative consequences.

If the dreamer in question is in the process of sexual intercourse when the potency disorder occurs and this dream event reveals shame, it may correspond to this fact in real life.

On the other hand, it could be possible that this situation in the dream is a symbol of weak assertiveness . If one sees himself as an older man in a sexual act in a dream, it may be a warning not to be threatened by other people.

If the dream image shows the sleeper an inability to have an erection during the night, this represents inner tension. The dreamer could expend more energy and take care of his inner harmony and balance. If the dream image shows impotence fear as a man, it indicates stress and restlessness of the dreamer in the waking world.

If the doctor is visited in the dream because of this potent incapacity, this is generally interpreted by dream analysis as meaning that he needs help and support from other people for a certain thing that completely occupies him at present. He should overcome his pride in everyday life and ask for assistance.

Psychological dream interpretation

The dream interpretation of psychology interprets the dream image "impotence" primarily as a symbol of DISCERNMENT within the partnership. This must of necessity not be related to the sexual level or there is another cause of the cooling. Of course, the assumption is obvious that with this dream actually procreative inability is meant also in the real life.

If you play the role of an impotent man in your dream, it may be related to a lack of self-esteem. Perhaps this dream reveals the fear of being a failure and not getting your act together. If one's partner appears as impotent in the dream, it indicates repression of mental aspects that should be paid more attention to.

If castration in a dream leads to impotence, it can be attributed to a bad conscience and in that case it is advised to devote more time to this subject. If one is circumcised or emasculated in a dream, which has infertility as an effect, this reveals suppressed desires and urges.

If smoking occurs as the cause of impotence in the sleeper's dream, the person concerned should look at deep layers of his needs and also deal with the reality of his desires. These should be consciously brought to the surface. Not being able to perform sexual acts in a dream due to an alcohol problem is a sign of fear of weak vitality and energy.
