Being Naked

Fear of being exposed

Dreaming of being naked or nudity may usually mean that you are vulnerable in your real life or it may mean that you are not able to express yourself freely and maybe you are bound by prejudices.

Being or appearing naked, in public or unexpected places, is a common theme in dreams. Interestingly, this theme occurs in very similar ways across genders, age groups and nationalities. Kind of a universal theme! Usually, this theme reflects situations that you may be facing in your awake life. Interpreting dreams that fall in this theme will require that you build a dream catalogue over the course of a month along with capturing current or recent situations of your life.

Being naked or nudity means being true to oneself. Clothes define our personality. It is one of the ways you project yourself to the world of who you are, your culture, the society you belong and how you want the world around you to perceive you. Clothes mask your true identity. When you dream of being partially or fully naked, it implies your vulnerability in your real life. This also has a deeper meaning that you are not able to express freely and are under stress to reveal your true self. The location or setup of the dream can further give hints about the dream, suppose you dreamt that you are naked in office may imply that something is wrong at work.

Vulnerability can also be seen as being shameful, which means that there is an incident in your life that you regret of commiting and when you dream naked, then it probably means that you are afraid of exposing that aspect of your life to the world. Nudity symbolises being caught off guard also, which infers to your unpreparedness on some aspect in your real life. If you have dreamt that you are naked then it could also imply that you are struggling to impress someone despite your resentment and it’s the subconscious urge to stop you from behaving like someone else and be who you truly are. It might even mean that you are carrying a hidden truth within you and you are afraid of getting the truth being exposed which could risk someone or something dear to you. It all depends on your real life incidents and only by observing them that fit your dream can help you to understand the real meaning of it.
