      My mind is a very sick, twisted place.

      I've had two alternating (meaning my brain likes to switch between them) recurring dreams off and on for the past few years, and their content really seals the deal on the whole "sick and twisted mind" title.

      Dream 1: Not as bad so I'm starting here.

      Spoiler for 1:


      Dream 2: This is where my thread really earns its title.

      Spoiler for 2:


      Any thoughts and insight will be much appreciated.

      As always with interpretation, the following are just my thoughts and opinion, I think only the dreamer themselves can really find out the true meaning of their dreams.

      The second dream makes me wonder, if you've had any issues with abuse yourself when you were younger? Sometimes the mind can place us in role reversals and because dreams often represent parts of ourselves as other characters that we are not acting as, the young girl can still represent "you" or some unexplored/repressed aspect of yourself; how old do you feel or think you are, in those dreams? Alternately to that, perhaps you've had some concern about the topic, maybe thinking you've witnessed or suspected something like this from someone else and not been able to act on it.

      With regards to the first dream, my first thought is that you might think about what symbolic meanings your cousin might have as a dream character, what does she represent to you and so on. I think I've heard that dreams of incest aren't uncommon, I've had a few myself but they've always been pretty detached and unlike your case, I did have an infatuation with the person represented by my dream, so for me those dreams are also about the process of dealing with those waking feelings.

      My thoughts on these dreams are very similar to what Dark suggested actually.

      The dream with your cousin may be a representation rather than literal. This happens a lot with dreams. You'll know when it's happening because the context relates more accurately to someone else you know. Usually the person in the dream shares some qualities with the other person. Another possibility is that she represents some aspect of yourself that, when you are being intimate with her, shows your re-connection with this part of yourself.

      The second dream involving the child may be one of two things. It is possible it could be related to actual trauma, remembered or repressed. Only you will know if that is possible for you. Another option is that the dream relates to your feeling that your inner child may be being violated in some way by someone else, or even yourself. Maybe you are not acknowledging some feelings you have (inner child is often connected to our inner feelings, urinating is related to the release of emotions), and dismissed or distorted them.

      If you are interested, reading up on Jungian dream analysis can be very helpful in learning how to read the meaning in dreams. Many things in dreams relate to aspects of ourselves.

      Good luck.

      I think the above comments are valid. I will add that one should not feel shame for the weird stuff in dreams. No crime is committed by being the witness to the odd way the mind acts things out inside the head. Actually second cousin would not be something to feel shameful about in waking life. You can marry a second cousin in almost every part of the world, it is not the same as 1st cousin by any stretch. You have about 8 times more shared DNA with a 1st cousin vs a second. That said even a Edipous dream is still nothing to feel shame over. Life is hard enough with out judging yourself based on the random stuff dreams involve.
      I of course wondered about the child dream as far as your own past. If you know something happened to you at that age I think you have an answer. If not I would feel a little concern about if part of you has odd feelings in real life, and proceed with caution if so. Sometimes dreams show us things we do not want to see when our conscious mind is in control. We have all had no interaction with you so can do little but guess randomly.
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.

      To everyone wondering if there's ever been abuse in my life, no.

      Honestly, I think maybe it has more to do with a fetish that I have that isn't exactly something that should be one more than my being a secret

      , but I could be wrong.

      Yep, very destructive thing to be burdened with. If it is never acted on you can have a good life. Perhaps some dream activity may be useful, though I am not sure how it would work.
