CinnaDon’t you just love it when a celebrity makes a cameo appearance in your dream? Whether it’s Oprah Winfrey, Madonna or Donald Trump, you can be certain your dreaming mind chose him or her for a very good reason. The best way to figure out why a celebrity is co-starring with you in your dream is to ask yourself what it is that celebrity is best known for. Is it a character they have played on TV or in the movies? Can you relate that character or show to your life right now? Is it a song? If so, does the title or the lyrics speak to you right now? Whether you are a fan or not, there is something about that celebrity that your inner mind connects with and it uses that celebrity to convey a message to you, about you so that you can continue to shine.

The following is from my nationally syndicated newspaper column The Dream Zone and is a PERFECT example of how the celebrities in our dreams provide more than entertainment value… they come with a very important message.

Dear Lauri,
Last night I dreamed that I was going to have sex with Lenny Kravitz. He was waiting for me in a bedroom and I was in my co-worker’s bathroom for an hour getting ready: showering, shaving, putting on makeup, etc. I was wondering if he would fall asleep waiting for me, and kept looking at the clock because it was 10pm and I was afraid I would be late getting home. Boy I wish that dream was real!   – Christine 44, Wear, NH

Lauri: In real life what are you preparing for that seems to be taking longer than anticipated? Lenny Kravitz is a clue… and a very nice clue at that! When a celebrity appears in our dreams the message they hold for us can usually be found in a role that they have played, a movie they have been in or in the title or lyrics of a song that they sing. When you think of Lenny, what comes to mind? Whatever it is, that is where we are going to get our “Aha! Moment.”

Christine replies: I’m having a hard time pinpointing an answer to your first question but I’ve been wanting to change careers and get my high school diploma to go to college, but that isn’t something I‘ve started working on. I also haven’t been losing the weight and I’ve been attempting that for some time now. And I do remember being paranoid thinking he would think I was fat.

Lauri replies: This may be what your dream is connected to, how long YOU are taking to do what is necessary to get that diploma, change careers AND ESPECIALLY lose weight. This is where I think Lenny Kravitz comes in. Most recently he was in The Hunger Games. He must represent the hunger you have to deal with in order to lose the weight you want that is unfortunately taking too long to come off.

Christine replies: Yes! This totally makes sense!

Remember, celebrities are known, seen, recognized and applauded; the celebrity in your dream is portraying a part of you that wants recognition and approval, and it is most likely connected to what that celebrity is best known for. So give yourself a critique of your performance in life lately. Do you deserve two thumbs up and applause, or boos and hisses?
