Nudity in dream meaning | Dream interpretation


A Dictionary of Dream Symbols | Eric Ackroyd

(1) Nudity may express a longing (possibly unconscious) for childhood innocence and freedom from artificial inhibitions.

(2) It may signify getting beyond outward appearances to what you really are: the ‘naked truth’ about yourself. It may therefore be accompanied by an anxious feeling of being exposed - that is, vulnerable.

(3) If you are ashamed or frightened of being naked, and mov e away so that people can’t see you, this may indicate either a fear of sexual relationships or fear of revealing your inner feelings.

(4) If you are showing off your nudity, this may represent either desire for sex; or a state of being at ease with yourself and not feeling a need to apologize for being the person you are; or complete honesty and openness in your dealings with other people.

New American Dream Dictionary | Joan Seaman - Tom Philbin

1. Feelings of public disgrace.

2. Fear of exposure.

3. Vulner­ability.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Being naked in a dream suggests vulnerability and exposure. It could be a compensation to what is going on in daily life. Are you very guarded and unwilling to let people see the “real” you or are you feeling embarrassment as a result of a mistake or emotional reaction? With this dream the unconscious might be encouraging you to become more open with your feelings and more accessible emotionally. Additionally, if you see yourself naked in inappropriate places, your rebellious side may be coming through and with it some fear that people may not accept you for what you really are. Nudity in sexual dreams has its own meaning, for suggestions please see sex.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

This dream has an ambivalent sense. On one hand, it is a symbol of physical beauty, purity, and divinity (in fact, goddesses like Venus or Diana have always been painted naked); and it reflects a desire for freedom, sincerity, and self-improvement. On the other hand, it represents lust or vain exhibitionism.

If in the dream you feel distressed or embarrassed it means that you reject your own body.

If you see other people naked it can reveal both a desire to know their secret thoughts or a mere sexual attraction. When you find yourself naked in public it denotes anxiety, fear of ridicule, emotional vulnerability, and low self-confidence. You are afraid that others may hurt you if you act spontaneously or make a mistake. Nudity, finally, also means that you feel nostalgia for lost childhood. It represents your true self, without norms or social constraints.

Formerly, mothers used to warn her daughters that if they dreamed of being naked they would soon learn about a scandal. According to some oracles, it predicts that you will make serious mistakes in business affairs, unless you listen to the advice of others. For gypsies, however, this dream brings good luck, especially if the oneiric scene is developed under a starry sky. In general, this dream can also mean innocence.

analysis of a dream

Mary dreamed: “I was in the office when I realized I was not quite dressed. I had forgotten to put pants on and was not wearing underwear! I tried to get my jersey down so it would cover me but it was too short. I felt really bad, insecure, and helpless. However, my colleagues—all perfectly dressed—did not seem to notice anything. At that time my boss called me to come to his office and I could no longer resist; I burst into tears like a little girl. Seeing me so crushed, Ana (a partner) offered me a jacket so I could tie it around my waist, but she said, ‘Girl, I do not know what’s wrong with you lately, but you get too easily distracted... ’ and continued her work without caring much about my situation. Then I woke up.”

Almost everyone has dreamed of being naked—or half-dressed—in a public place. This dream is often associated with sexuality (with a sexual inadequacy or guilt); but also with the fear of somehow “being exposed,” regarding your private or professional life. However, depending on the circumstances of each person, the meaning varies. In Mary’s case, it reflects her vulnerability at the workplace and a concern for revealing some deficiency or inability to others. In the dream, peers do not seem to notice—or do not pay attention to—her nudity, and that is a reassuring element indicating that perhaps Mary was worried for no reason. Failure to wear trousers and the fear that a figure of authority—such as her boss —would find out reveals her concern for success and professional skills; they could be questioned.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

(See Nakedness). Nudity in dreams has many beautiful implications, whether it is of a man, woman, or child.

For one to dream of admiring his or her own nudity, predicts the loss of a lover through vain ideas; but if a person is disgusted with the appearance of the body, it foretells scandal and iovers1 quarrels.

NUDE / NUDITY

Dream Meanings of Versatile
Material aspects: Freud assumed that dreaming of being nude was linked with sexuality. It is, however, more to do with self-image. We have a desire to be seen for what we are, to reveal our essential personality without having to create a facade.

To interpret a dream of walking down a street naked will depend on whether we are seen by other people or not.

If we are seen by others, there may be something about ourselves that we wish to reveal.

If we are alone we may simply have a wish for freedom of expression n for both men and women, returning to a sense of innocent pleasure and appreciation of the human body can be perceived in dreams as nudity.

If in dreaming of someone of the opposite sex they are naked but we are not, they may be more vulnerable than we are.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
