Receptiveness, an open mind not full of preconceptions. This state of mind can surrender to the transcendent, and thus conceive a holy child, or higher consciousness. In other words you mentally leap beyond the limitations of already formed conceptions toward the new and unlimited. See Mary-virgin for fuller explanation.
In a woman’s dream: Oneself if still a virgin. It can also depict a daughter, or that one has had sex doesn’t mean that ones girlhood feelings actually were met and mated with. These might very well reappear in a new relationship or in a phase of ones marriage.
Being a virgin represents the human soul or psyche and its possibility of dropping pre-conceptions, thus attaining an inner virginity and through that being receptive to the unseen or unconscious side of self. Christianity named this the Holy Ghost. But older cultures also depicted this inner state of fertile receptivity. For instance Egypt expressed this human possibility in the form of Isis. Also Buddha’s mother Queen Maya, in 500BC, is said to have dreamt that a six-tusked elephant pierced her side with one of its tusks. This produced an immaculate conception. She understood the dream to mean the resulting child would become a monarch whose domain was the world. So the idea of virgin birth was not new to Christianity.
In a man’s dream: Ones feeling self which is receptive; ones soul or psyche; the aspect of oneself which can connect with expanded awareness because it can rid itself of preconceptions. If there are sexual feelings in the dream there is still a chance this is about a longing to experience the open receptive state described above, and an attempt to grow beyond the traps of desire and material life you might exist in.
