How to interpret a dream about nudity?
To interpret a dream about nudity, we should pay attention to how we reacted to our nudity, think where we were naked and how the potential surrounding reacted to us. Being naked often appears in nightmares – we are walking naked or barely dressed down crowded streets and feel ashamed, self-conscious and humiliated.
It is believed that if we are feeling good being naked in a dream, it is possible that we want to catch the people’s attention, to be listened and seen by the others. Maybe we also want to learn the truth about something which has been bothering us.
Nudity in a dream also means such qualities as defenselessness, openness, honesty, naivete or embarrassment. Dreams about nude public appearances occur in many cultures. They are related to the lack of preparation or the fear of exposing feelings.
Nudity as the symbol of defenselessness appears in our dreams at the second stage of coming back to the psychical balance, especially after a divorce or separation. At this stage, the dreamer is feeling upset, angry and depressed, especially if it is him who has been left.
Nudity may also symbolize the change of identity, the state before getting “the new outfit”.
