Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook NUDITY : Dreams often translate into real words in the English language. To understand a dream including nudity just think of the wider usages of the word naked. We refer to the "naked truth" which links to something which is obviously true. Such a meaning may link to feelings of vulnerability if some embarrassing truth is revealed. Obviously nakedness links to sexuality and so the dream may be associated with some sexual attraction. If you have been thinking about some sexual feelings then maybe the dream links to that. There are other meanings though - dreams symbols have a wide variety of meanings. One naked dream in our study followed on from an open and honest conversation that the dreamer had been thinking about. So nakedness was a symbol for openness and honesty.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you worry that you acted in a very blatant and obvious manner the day before the dream?
- Do you feel as if you want to be open and honest with your feelings in some way?
- Has someone been trying to reveal the naked truth about something?
- Did you feel vulnerable the day before the dream? Was some weakness revealed for all to see?

KEY WORDS :Obvious, blatant, vulnerable, open, honest, explore(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings about the day before and see where these words appear)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the new thoughts and feelings you have been clarifying in your mind) :
- "I wish I had not been so blatant "
- "It was so obvious"
- "He wanted to know everything about her"
- "she was teasing me with what she knew"
- "being open and honest"

(Now write down some quotes that sum up your thoughts and feelings right now. Concentrate on incidents the day before, paranoias and fantasies, health issues, challenges of the day ahead. Then try to see where the words and phrases above appear in your quotes).

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of nudity in dreams?
If someone is naked we see them in entirely a different way. Clothes in dreams link to the way we build up our image and they show how we would like others to see us. But once naked we reveal the our bodies as they are. In some senses nudity is all about the emotions associated with it. If we feel liberated and free then it may link to a moment when we open up our hearts and tell the world how we feel. Yet nakedness linked to embarrassment may link to some truth which we would rather was kept secret.

Nakedness is often when we realise that something has become obvious or that we wish to be less obvious. E.g.

"I think I was a little BLATANT yesterday. I don't like to make it too obvious how much I liked to exclude Jon from my team. I just cannot work with him. Yet I don't want to appear vindictive"[Dream Dictionary - sexily dressed women dream][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I know I like to dominate things but I do not like to be OBVIOUS about it"[Dream Dictionary - naked dream]

"People tend to ask me to help a lot and they take it for granted. Sometimes I don't want to but I do not like being too OBVIOUS about turning people down"[Dream symbol - naked dream]

In some cases the nakedness maybe associated with some embarrassing questions and issues from real life. E.g.

"She kept asking questions about him. I felt embarrassed answering all her questions. She wanted to know EVERY LAST DETAIL"[Dream Dictionary - naked man dream]

"I just get embarrassed in front of him and clam up"[Dream dictionary - crushes nakedness dream]

"My mum keeps saying that I need to lighten up"[Dream Dictionary - pants fall down in front of mum dream]

In some cases if the clothes are been stripped off in a teasing lap dance it may suggest that someone is slowly and tantalizingly revealing the truth. E.g.

"My boyfriends sister really hates me and I just hate to think that she is with him right now REVEALING exactly what she knows"[Dream Dictionary - lap dancer dream]

But undressing maybe simply suggests that you are trying to be honest and open. E.g.

"Sometimes I feel as if I want to REVEAL TO HER how I feel. Then I realise its best to keep things as they are as it would just complicate things"[Dream symbol - get undressed then get get dressed dream]

"Its maybe time that I told my girlfriend that I do not think its working out. Its best to be OPEN AND HONEST"[Dream Dictionary - undressed dream]

"I have been openly showing my support and trust for my boss"[Dream dictionary - taken shirt off dream]

Of course nakedness may simply link to sexual attraction. E.g.

"I am attracted to my co-worker but I try not to show it"[Dream dictionary - naked in bed dream]
-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
-----------------------
THE DREAM - I am looking at three sexily dressed ladies legs. Then I think of a Co-worker whom I did not choose to take part in a major project

THE REALITY At work the previous day the dreamer had perhaps too readily excluded a co-worker from a project. He felt that his emotions had maybe given away a prejudice that the dreamer had for his co-worker He had perhaps revealed himself too readily.

DREAM ANALYSIS The dream was a work dream so the dreamer focused on work issues and also things that he had been working through his mind. There was one major little incident from the day before at work.

Legs are a symbol of direction. In this case they are very sexy legs - and the feeling in the dream was that "these legs were really very very good". That emotional feeling perfectly mimicked the feeling he had when excluding a co-worker from a project. It was something that he could very easily agree to was a good thing.

This dream maybe ponders on how he had been perhaps too obvious in agreeing the exclusion of a co-worker It may reveal exactly how he felt. He did not want to appear to be targeting this person. Above all it was the vigour with which he excluded the co-worker He felt this may allow people to see him in a whole new way.

Symbolic Meanings
DRESSED : "unconscious signals you send to people"
SEXILY DRESSED : "something is really very appealing - the dreamer found it VERY APPEALING not to work with this co-worker"
THREE : "a choice - the dreamer could have acted in a different way perhaps"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I think I was a bit too obvious in showing my feelings at work yesterday. I know I dislike him intensely but I do not want to seem too prejudiced against him"

See how the Symbolic Meanings above weave together to form a key insight in the DREAM MEANING
