“I wasn’t kissing her, I was whispering in her mouth.” Chico Marx
There is nothing quite as remarkable as the moment just before a first kiss. The anticipation, excitement, and the flash of a life that could be, as you melt into that emotional connection with another human being, can be among the most breathtaking of imaginative experiences.
Kisses can be this remarkable, and even more so, in the dream world. Kissing in dreams can be more exciting and more fulfilling than those in real life, and this is because most of the time they represent a very deep spiritual or emotional connection.
Connection to Higher Self
If you dream of a beautiful kiss shared with another, this could signify a deeper connection to your “other half,” or your Animus (if you’re a woman), or the Anima (if you’re a man). To connect to the Anima or Animus symbolizes a connection of wholeness.
If you are kissing a same sex partner, it may mean that you are moving forward with your own spiritual growth, experiencing an inner alignment and discovering something new about yourself.
If you are kissing your partner, it could signify a deep connection between the two of you. However if you are kissing an ex lover, it may mean that you are unhappy in your current life and unable to find fulfillment. It may also be a desire to return to that person, or that time in your life.
Family exchange kisses to say hello, good bye, I love you, you are precious to me, and I’m here for you. To receive a kiss like this in a dream may be a reminder of the support and love you have in your life, and may mean that you have support and encouragement from the spiritual realms.
However, sometimes family members force kisses, and this could be an indication that you need to work on setting some boundaries.
Fairy Tale Kisses
A princess kisses a frog, and turns him into a handsome prince. A prince kisses a sleeping princess and she awakens and they live happily ever. Sometimes the dream kiss can be a catalyst to awakening the true self.
“But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?” Luke 22:48
Sometimes the kiss can be an act of betrayal. You may dream that a lover is kissing another, or someone may be forcing a kiss on you. This may be a warning to pay attention to those in real life who may not have the best intentions toward you.
As always, it’s important to pay attention to your feelings in the dream, as they are the greatest markers in guiding you toward understanding the message that is trying to come through.
Whether it’s a tender connection, or a brilliant call from your soul, a kiss will never be just a kiss, but always a miracle waiting to happen.
