Naked Dreams

“I had a dream about being naked!” The dream of being naked or semi-nude is something that you would have experienced at some point in your life. The dreamer in the naked dream will often be going about doing a normal activity – going to school, giving a presentation, standing in line – when suddenly there is a realization of being completely naked. That act of being naked in a dream can symbolize a number of different things in the real world. The interpretation of these dreams should always be taken into context with the dreamer.

People have different perceptions about being nude or naked. Some people view nudity as a freedom of expression and go out of their way to show off their nude bodies. You will often find these people at nude beaches or other public places in the nude. Nudity for these dreamers represents something completely different than a majority of people who view nudity as embarrassing and something that should not be revealed in public. You should ask yourself how the dream made you feel? The majority of dreams involving nudity have a negative connotation associated with it.

Nude Dreams Should be Taken in Context with the Dreamer

Dreaming of being naked is a sign of great vulnerability and insecurity. You fear others seeing you for exactly what you are, and you desire to hide some part of yourself which you feel to be shameful or embarrassing. Dreaming of being naked in a crowd also represents social anxiety and the feeling of not fitting in among other people. There may also be some negative body image associated with this dream, especially if you dream specifically of others being able to see particular body flaws. You may need to gain acceptance of your body by spending some significant waking time naked, in order to stop trying to hide from yourself as well.

dream of nudityMany dreamers who find themselves in these situations will feel extremely embarrassed or ashamed when they realize they are standing in a public area with little or no clothing on. Usually these dreams reflect ones feeling of vulnerability or shame about being in that position.

There might be something that the dreamer is subconsciously hiding and scared that people might discover this secret. Because clothes are used as a form of protection from the outside world, when we strip away our clothes, we become vulnerable to people around us because we don’t have any layers of protection.

Naked Dreams can Symbol Embarrassment

Having a naked dream could mean that you are trying to cover up certain things in your life because you fear the embarrassment if others found out. You could also be trying to act in a way or do something that is not truly you. These anxieties are often presents when people are trying to make an impression on people they look up to. Someone in a new job or recently in a new relationship may have doubts about expressing certain feelings or issues about themselves.

The act of being nude or semi –nude in a dream symbolizes being caught off guard. Having your guard down makes you vulnerable to peoples judgments and opinions. If you are naked at school giving a presentation, you might not be prepared for a future project or presentation that may be due. You could also fear some of the judgment that your fellow classmates might pass on you if they found out who you really were. People often fear that others won’t accept them if they discovered who they really were. Such fear is very irrational because everyone feels these feelings at some point.

In many naked dreams others don’t realize in the dream that the dreamer is naked. Often people are going about their business without seeming to notice you standing naked in front of them. When this happens in a naked dream it means that your deep fears and concerns are often unfounded. No one cares about your fear except for you.

Dreamers who are naked with no shame or anxiety in their dream tend to have more power and freedom. Being able to expose yourself to the world with no feelings of guilt or shame shows a sense of freedom. Alternately the dream could be telling you that you are trying to attract unnecessary attention to yourself. You might be trying too hard to get noticed be people around you.

  1. It is not surprising that you are having these dreams about your crushes. When you think about something constantly in your waking state our dreams will often use those thoughts and translate them into a dream. Having your crush become your protector in one of your dreams represents your need for security and desire to find love. Having someone as a protector shows that you like it when someone takes control and can help you with things. Although not all dreams have meaning, most dreams are somehow are reflection of ourselves. So try and look deep into your dreams to determine what aspect of your self you are dreaming about.

  2. I have dreams about my crushes…and in one of the dreams, It was like he was everywhere I was…we had every single class together….and he would always stare at me….and when the bell rings he would smile…get up….walking backwards out the door still looking at me…..smileing. In real life I caught him staring at me….and when I looked at him…he didn’t turn away unt’ill a few seconds passed….I had a dream that he was my protector one time…and we we’re running away from crazy people. I have also had a dream that I kissed my other crush. So what does that mean? And what does it mean if two people have the same exact dream on the same night…and the two people could see each other in the dream……I also had dream that my friends and I we’re traveling through time…my body felt really weird in the dream…cuz we we’re going so fast….iv’e hade lots of weird dreams…i hope you answer me and give me meanings:)
