Dreams Related To Incest

Incest with father

I am female aged 25 who dreamt of almost getting intimate with my dad, but was stopped by mum?

Incest in dreams, when it mirrors sexual abuse in reality, is a sign of psychological issues which requires professional attention. However, if you have healthy family relations, then incestuous dream images merely point to the tendency of combining feminine and masculine aspects of yourself. Almost getting intimate with your dad reveals your yearning to be more like him, whether it is his authority or how he handles relationships. It can also mean you are prone to committing the same mistakes as he tends to. In this sense, your mom's intervention represents your pragmatic and assertive side trying to keep yourself from following the same path as your dad. Perhaps you want to blaze your own trail and be your own person, away from your parent's shadow.
