Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

UNDRESSING : If we undress we show ourselves for what we are. In dreams undressing may suggest that we are showing our true feelings. Maybe you have decided to tell someone exactly how you feel about them. But undressing may show that you are tantalizing someone with the truth or they may casually reveal some secret of yours.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Has someone been tantalisingly revealing some truth?
- Have you been telling secrets?
- Have you started to be totally honest and reveal the full truth?
- Did you feel sexually aroused or frustrated when you woke up?

KEY WORDS : Open, honest, revealing, secrets, sexual feelings

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "being open and honest"
- "revealing my true feelings"
- "revealing what you know"
- "telling secrets "
- "I have been feeling sexually frustrated"

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 undressing in dreams?
Clothes in dreams often symbolise the way we wish to be seen by others. They symbolise our image and how we like to be seen. But take the clothes away and we reveal the reality. So nakedness symbolises the truth and clothes can tend to link to images and opinions.

Dressing can symbolise moments when we are revealing our thoughts in great detail and when we are being obvious about what we want. E.g.

"I have just opened up to my fiancé. I normally hate doing such things. But I told him my true feelings"[Dream Dictionary - stripping for police party][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"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 dressed dream]

"Its maybe time that I told my girlfriend that I do not think its working out"[Dream Dictionary - undressed 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]

A strip show may show that someone is teasing you about how much they know. 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]

Consider the emotions in the dream as they may suggest a clue. E.g.

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

Undressing may have an obviously sexual meaning
. E.g.

"I woke up feeling sexually frustrated"[Dream Dictionary - Paris Hilton undressing seductively dream]

SAMPLE DREAM
------------------------------------------
THE DREAM An officer asked me to strip for a police party, while he should have been arresting me. I said maybe later, with no real intention of doing it. I saw a guy smoking marihuana from a huge coconut. I went into an older cripple mans house and smoked with him ( I haven't smoked in a long time). I had to leave him, but I felt bad because he was so lonely and nice and I knew everyone was using him. I was worried about my fiancé finding out, so I had to leave. I had been there before, so I knew my way around. The coconut was so big, and it had a huge joint in it.

THE REALITY The dreamer had just opened up to her fiancé and told him exactly how she felt about him. She was not usually one for showing her deep feelings.

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams capture our emotions but in symbolic form. Here the stripping is a strong symbol and since the dreamer had just been revealing her true feelings to her fiancees then its fair to assume that the dream links to this. Thats especially the case as the dream features her fiancé. Stripping links to moments when we show our true emotions.

What else can the dream show? Well its not an easy dream to understand symbolically but we can pick up a sense of awkwardness and even a strong sense of guilt. That links to the dreamers feelings in reality as she did feel awkward revealing her true feelings. Normally its her fiancée that is the one to get emotional.

Perhaps the other symbols build up this picture of how the dreamer thinks. The police could symbolise how she feels as if revealing her true feelings is somehow against some rules that she has about relationships(her own rules about what is the right way to behave). Its a police party so any rules that she does have will not be enforced as vigorously as the police are off their guard. The drugs could symbolise how this sharing of emotions is very new to the dreamer. Its almost like its a whole different reality.

Symbolic Meanings
DRUGS : "sharing feelings is a while new world for the dreamer"
GUILT : "the dreamers sense of guilt and awkwardness showing her true feelings"
POLICE : "the dreamers own unwritten rules about what is the right way to behave in relationships"
POLICE PARTY : "the dreamer is off guard and less likely to enforce her own rules"
STRIPPING : "revealing your own true feelings"
