Being Naked

Finding yourself naked in a dream can be a shock: perhaps you were going about your daily business, at work or walking down the street, and suddenly you notice your clothes are missing! You are exposed, and this is exactly what you fear in your waking life. There is something you have been hiding; this could be an aspect of your personality, a secret, or something you feel ashamed of. You’re afraid that this is about to be revealed. It could be that you feel all eyes are on you at this time and you’re fearful of doing or saying something wrong. Naked dreams are common when we feel under pressure to perform: at an interview, in a test or giving a presentation. Look to your dream surroundings for clues as to which area of your life this is pointing to. Also notice how others look at you. If they fail to notice your nudity, then this suggests your fears are unfounded and you are letting them take over rather than focusing on the task in hand. Naked dreams can be extremely liberating, particularly if you feel confident without clothes! This suggests that you are happy in your own skin and feel able to reveal who you really are to the world. ... being naked dream meaning

Being Naked In Public

Possible meanings You dream you are in a public place when you suddenly realize you are naked. Although many people feel shame, embarrassment or horror in the dream, others are untroubled about being exposed to public gaze. The dream usually indicates that you feel intensely vulnerable in some area of your life. It may be that a relationship has stripped away your defences, leaving you emotionally exposed. Perhaps you feel uncomfortable about an occasion when you revealed more of yourself than you had really wanted. Sometimes the dream suggests that you haven’t yet found a suitable role in life. If the dream is set in your office, it can signify underlying feelings of inadequacy about your work. You may be harbouring a fear that others will realize you are not as capable as they think. Questions to ask yourself - and what to do when the answer is ‘yes’ Do I feel emotionally susceptible?
  • It may be that you have taken the role of victim in a relationship, so the dream is alerting you to the need to armour yourself. However, it’s also possible that you are feeling defenceless because the other person is seeing you just as you are. If you usually hide behind a barrier, this can feel uncomfortable. Yet being loved for who you are is the basis of emotional healing and may be exactly what you need.
Am I worried that I may have revealed too much of myself?
  • Perhaps you’re usually a little too reticent, so that what you said or did wasn’t nearly as explicit as you fear. Although it would be wise to watch for possible consequences your fears are likely to prove groundless.
Am I trying to find a suitable role in life?
  • Unless you’re lucky enough to have a vocation it can be difficult to find your niche in life. I suggest you seek advice from a careers counsellor.
Am I worried about my ability to do my job properly?
  • If you are struggling with some aspect of your job, it would be best to ask for help or further training. Perhaps, though, you need to give yourself more credit for your abilities. You may be magnifying your shortcomings at the expense of your confidence. Could it be that you have unrealistically high expectations of yourself?

Best Friend

To see your friends in your dream, signifies aspects of your personality that have been developing and making you grow as a person. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself, so look to the friends you dreamed about for signals of personality traits they have that you desire in yourself, and work on those things. Additionally, dreaming of friends sometimes foretells that you will hear happy news from them. If you dream of seeing your friends saddened or troubled, in your dream, they are headed for distress in real life. To see a friend in your dream who you no longer see in real life (the friendship is over or they moved away), means you wish for a time in your past when you had no responsibilities and things were much simpler and more carefree. You may be wanting to escape the the pressures and stresses of growing up. Or, it could be a signal that it’s time to start acting more mature. If you dream of a friend dying, it means you have anxious feelings or insecurities about the friendship - you may worry that your friend is becoming distant from you or losing interest in the relationship. If you dream of a friend that you don’t really have in real life, this person actually represents another side of you - the part that is usually repressed and hidden. ... best friend dream meaning

Islamic Dream Interpretation

Boy / Boyfriend

To dream of a boy who you are crushing on in real life is usually just a straightforward reflection of your feelings for him. If you dream that you’re in love with a boy who you don’t like in real life, your dream could be telling you that you are overlooking good qualities in that person that makes him worth crushing on. Or, it could mean that he has some personality trait (like being outgoing or sporty) that you wish you had yourself. Dreams about your boyfriend often reflect real-life issues and concerns you have with him. If you dream that you have a boyfriend, but in real life you don’t, it symbolizes some sort of partnership or commitment. Maybe you want a boyfriend in real life, a common meaning, or maybe the boyfriend in your dream stands for a friend that you have commitment issues with. If your dream boyfriend is loving, this is your mind’s way of telling you that you are a special person worth loving. You’re giving yourself some much needed affection and praise. Dreaming about an ex-boyfriend can suggest unfinished or confusing issues related to that old relationship. It doesn’t necessarily mean you still care for him, although it can. Often, it means that your current love relationship is awakening similar feelings that you had with your ex, either positive or negative. If you dream of dating a friend’s boyfriend, your dream is actually about your friend and not the guy. Your friend has certain qualities that you wish you had yourself. Also, you may feel like you’re not as close to this friend as you want to be these days. If you dream that one of your friends is dating your boyfriend, you may not be getting as much as you want out of your love relationship. This dream can also indicate that you are envious of a quality that your friend has - you wish you were more like her in some way. If you dreamed about your boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, you may be comparing yourself to the ex. The dream is warning you not to make the same relationship mistakes that ended their relationship. If you dream of having a different boyfriend than you actually do, think of how this “other” boyfriend acted in the dream. It may suggest something you want from your boyfriend - a way you wish he would act, or some way in which you’d like him to change. If you are a girl and you dreamed of being a boy, look up the meaning under “Gender” Also see “Breaking Up”, “Cheating in a Relationship”, “Crush” and “Stealing a Boyfriend”... boy / boyfriend dream meaning

Dream Symbols and Analysis

Ex-boy / Girlfriend 

It is very common for people to dream about ex-partners. Individuals that have been an important part of our lives continue to take up a part of our mind and heart. It is impossible to very dramatically shut the person out of thoughts and feelings. Just because the relationship ends does not mean that all is finished. As we go through relationships we learn and at times pick up “battle wounds. ” You will continue to dream about your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend until you “let go” of them on a very important level, or until you learned your lessons from that relationship. Either way, dreaming about your ex-romance does not predict future involvement. It may be wish-fulfillment, reliving memories, or working out old issues. Dreams are very rarely prophetic.

To dream of friends being well and happy, denotes pleasant tidings of them, or you will soon see them or some of their relatives.

If the figure below be low, you will ignore your friends of former days in your future advancement. If it is on a plane or level with you, you will fail in your ambition to reach other spheres. If you seem to be going from it, you will force yourself to seek a change in spite of friendly ties or self-admonition.

Friend

If a friend appears in your dream, pay attention to how they behave. If they communicate with you in a familiar way, your dream may simply be reflecting the important part your friend plays in your life. If, however, your friend acts out of character or oddly, your unconscious may be warning you about an aspect of their character that makes you feel uneasy. On the other hand, your dream may be warning you that it is you rather than your friend that the dream is depicting, as the dreaming mind tends to project aspects of yourself onto people you are close to in waking life in order to make you aware of aspects of your personality that are being neglected or suppressed. If you have a dream in which a friend suddenly turns on you or even tries to kill you, this image may have been sent to tell you that this particular friend is not all that they seem to be in real life. ... friend dream meaning

Friend / Companion

(1) If in your dream you have a friend or companion of the same sex as vourself, he or she may svmbolize your alter ego or shadow, which consists of those aspects of your personality that vou have so far neglected or repressed. (Even in real life we may project on to other people some of the contents of our own unconscious - repressed sadism, for instance, or an inferiority complex. )The conscious ego, says Jung, cannot safely explore the deeper regions of the psyche without the shadow. In other words, there is little chance of re-rooting oneself in the true centre of one’s being without first acknowledging that there are aspects of one’s personality other than those that one has allowed into one’s conscious life. (On shadow). (2) If the friend / companion in the dream is of the opposite sex, he or she may represent the animus / anima. The anima is the feminine side of a male psyche, the animus the masculine side of a female psyche. Acknowledgement of this contrasexual element in the psyche, and its assistance in tackling life’s tasks, are essential for personal wholeness (for anima / animus, see Brother / Sistcr, section (4)). ... friend / companion dream meaning

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams

Friends

Dreams which feature your friends or groups of friends highlight your feelings about them in waking life. If the friends are people you do not know, they may represent your inner wisdom or intuition; the character of the friends will tell you what aspect of yourself they display. In dreams, friends behaving inappropriately can also represent your shadow self—the aspect of your personality that you are denying or have rejected. By portraying your shadow aspect as a friend or group of friends, your dreaming mind may be urging you to integrate neglected parts of your personality and restore inner harmony. You may have a dream in which a group of friends or people you know behave like total strangers to you, despite your efforts to remind them that you know each other. Such dreams are symbols of low self-confidence, but they can also suggest that you are trying too hard to be popular or to make a friendship work, because the desire for friendship is one-sided: your own. ... friends dream meaning

Naked

To dream that you are naked, foretells scandal and unwise engagements. To see others naked, foretells that you will be tempted by designing persons to leave the path of duty. Sickness will be no small factor against your success. To dream that you suddenly discover your nudity, and are trying to conceal it, denotes that you have sought illicit pleasure contrary to your noblest instincts and are desirous of abandoning those desires. For a young woman to dream that she admires her nudity, foretells that she will win, but not hold honest men’s regard. She will win fortune by her charms. If she thinks herself ill-formed, her reputation will be sullied by scandal. If she dreams of swimming in clear water naked, she will enjoy illicit loves, but nature will revenge herself by sickness, or loss of charms. If she sees naked men swimming in clear water, she will have many admirers. If the water is muddy, a jealous admirer will cause ill-natured gossip about her. ... naked dream meaning

Naked

When someone appears naked in a dream, this will represent an aspect of the self that is being expressed openly or ideas manifest in their true form without alteration or limitation. Nakedness is a common dream scenario that occurs at all ages, even when we are very young. The dreams involve feelings of exposure and vulnerability, and often include an element of embarrassment or shame. Appearing partially nude is more common than being totally naked. Meanings vary depending on whether the nakedness occurs at school, at work, or on an open street; they will also depend on what part of the body is exposed. Wearing the wrong clothing has various meanings too. A bride being inappropriately dressed for her upcoming wedding, for example, could suggest second thoughts she has about the union. If you dream of being dapper or wearing a special outfit, however, this may suggest you feel good about your body or your life. ... naked dream meaning

Nakedness

Vision: Did you walk the streets naked or did other people see you are naked? Let go of your shame! The dream is a memory of the fun you had as a child—and that your parents considered being naked a taboo. Every now and then our psyche needs to relive the excitement of past feelings: like your father holding both your hands and swinging you through the air, or your early childhood feeling of freedom when free of clothes. If you frequendy dream about walking the streets naked, this means feelings of inferiority have prevented you from achieving your personal goals in the past. Taking off your clothes: you want more independence and freedom. Seeing naked children in a dream: your family is about to have a new member (your own or the family of your friends). Seeing a person of the opposite sex naked: your secret or burning passion for someone will be reciprocated. Depth Psychology: Dreaming about being naked means you are afraid of being “found out”—you are emotionally upset right now and don’t want others to know. The dream is a challenge to be emotionally vulnerable, to take a chance and admit your weaknesses. The dream might also express erotic needs that are either being met right now or that you think arc foolish. ... nakedness dream meaning

Nakedness

These are dreams of exhibition, a desire to be noticed or to gain the attention of other people, sometimes only one person. For some dreamers, nakedness is a symbol for a release of sexual emotions. For others it is a desire to be seen and heard in order to gain success, achieve fame or popularity. Old translations are as follows: To find yourself naked to your dream warns that you may be involved in a scandal. If you are embarrassed, you will violate the conservative rules of propriety. To see other people partially undressed, the dreamer will yield to immoral temptations. See Swimming. ... nakedness dream meaning

Psycho Dream Interpretation

Nakedness

One of the most common and often embarrassing dreams is to find yourself naked in a public place, wearing only your underwear or clothes that are see-through. Nakedness may represent a longing to return to childhood innocence, as the dream represents the real you, stripped of pretence and social conditioning. Do you have a desire to be seen for who you are or to reveal your essential personality without having to create a façade? Another interpretation is that nakedness expresses a latent exhibitionism or simply a desire for sex. Freud once stated that his favorite dream was of being naked in a crowd of strangers. From a Freudian perspective, a naked female is usually an expression of sexual desire for dreamers—men or women—who are sexually attracted to women. Freudians see the naked male in much the same light as the naked female, as an expression of sexual desire for men. In Jungian terms, nakedness suggests aspirations for love and rebirth, or a desire to attain spiritual awareness and to renounce the material world. According to this interpretation, nakedness is also an expression of beauty, creativity and divinity. Ancient gods such as Venus, goddess of beauty, and Diana, the goddess of the hunt, are often depicted naked. A naked child is particularly associated with the Jungian archetype of the divine child, and more generally with innocence and lack of inhibition. If you are covering up a child’s nakedness in the dream, this indicates a general discomfort with emotional expression. Many psychologists favor the interpretation that dreams of nakedness highlight feelings of vulnerability. Such dreams may be interpreted as a fear of sexual relationships, but they are more likely to signify fears and anxieties about yourself, and the way you appear to others. Perhaps you feel failure or rejection if you reveal your true self. In your waking life, you therefore need to overcome feelings of vulnerability and learn to be more self-confident. Being partly dressed in a dream may suggest that you are not prepared for what lies ahead. It might be wise to re-examine your plans and your future. If the people in the dream seem unaware that you are underdressed or naked, this suggests that you shouldn’t worry about showing your real self to others. It may also signify that you are not worried about what others think of you, or that you long to show sides of your true personality to others. To dream of being ashamed or frightened may indicate a fear of showing your real feelings. If, on the other hand, you are disgusted by your own, or another person’s, nakedness, or other people are disgusted with your own nakedness, this suggests anxiety about discovering the naked truth about yourself, another person or a situation. If you positively welcome the nakedness of other people in your dream, it may express a frustration with what, in waking life, you perceive to be their affected behavior—you wish they could be more natural. It may also suggest that you can see through people and see them for who they are. If you are sufficiently secure within your own self-image in waking life, you will not be afraid of being stripped in public in a dream. For example, dreaming of appearing naked in a strip show could suggest that you are anxious about being misunderstood, or that you welcome the opportunity to express and reveal yourself. According to dream lore, if a girl dreams of being naked, this means that she will soon hear about a terrible scandal. Some gypsies, however, believe that nakedness dreams are a sign of good fortune, particularly if the dreamer was walking naked under the stars. Ancient dream dictionaries say that to dream of a naked woman was lucky, as it foretold unexpected honors. It was also thought to be unlucky to dream of too many clothes, since this meant you lacked the necessities of life, whilst to dream of new clothes suggested a domestic tiff.

Nightmares And Scary Dreams: Frightening Dreams Are Your Friend

Even Nightmares Have a Helpful Purpose. A nightmare is easy to recognize: You wake up feeling anything from mild fright to a complete terror that can leave you screaming. Yet even dreams that scare you come to help. The topic of a dream may well bring up a serious and intense message. However, the message comes from a friendly source—your own psyche—whose purpose is to help and support you. No matter how serious or scary the subject of the dream, the communication from your psyche is an attempt to help you resolve the matter or get through a challenging situation. WHY A DREAM TURNS INTO A NIGHTMARE. Most nightmares are simply mirrors of your internal fears and anxieties. Paradoxically, as the following reasons explain, it is those very fears and anxieties that “flip” a dream that is otherwise benign into a nightmare. Think of a dream as a carriage transporting a needed insight about an important problem; the carriage is merely a vehicle for the helpful message. However, the topic of the dream terrifies you. The topic could be about a failing relationship or a career that is falling apart. Because of your terror, as you watch the carriage approach, the shadows of your fears make the carriage look scary. You do not notice the carriage is driven by your psyche, who approaches as a friend and just wants to help. One way of coping with an anxiety or fear is to distance yourself from it—to push it away. This is a normal reaction. Yet the very act of distancing yourself from a scary topic that a dream may address is what “transforms” a normal dream image into a scary one. It is like a tasty dish that curdles, and your fear curdles the dream dish. THERE ARE ONLY FRIGHTENED DREAMERS. Though it is natural to run from what scares you, the very act of doing so is what often creates a nightmare. That is why one way of looking at most nightmares is to say, “There are no scary dreams—only frightened dreamers. ” If we could put aside all of our fears, there would be few nightmares or frightening dreams. WHAT CAUSES NIGHTMARES. Mild to severe stress tends to be the main underlying cause of most frightening dreams. • Daily Stress. Daily stress that ramps up your feelings is the most common reason behind a nightmare. • Out-of-Control Fear and Anxiety. Like a wheel spinning out of control, negative emotions can unbalance your perceptions and lead to nightmares. • Emotional Dissonance. The daily push-pull between competing feelings or choices is called “emotional dissonance. ” If making a choice feels so unpalatable and impossible that no choice seems right, the pressure can drive you to the edge. This form of extreme anxiety, related to difficult or impossible choices, often invites nightmares. • Physical or Mental Imbalance. Conditions like fever or depression can produce bad dreams. When the condition passes, the nightmares may disappear. • Traumatic Events. Repeated bad dreams can happen after a painful event that leaves you feeling vulnerable, such as losing a loved one or the loss of a home after a natural disaster. As the psyche tries to digest the pain, the mind may replay the event as a nightmare. Such dreams are the psyche’s attempt to digest the painful feelings while you sleep. As a person heals and increases their coping skills, the bad dreams lessen and eventually disappear. • The Nightmares of Those with an Artistic or Sensitive Temperament. Highly sensitive and creative individuals tune in more deeply to the world’s pain and suffering, and as a result, they often report nightmares. A man at a seminar shared his constant nightmares about war scenes and mangled bodies, even though he lived a normal life and worked as a bus driver. Digging deeper, he began to see that he was tuning in to the daily pain that he saw on the faces of his passengers. Witnessing their distress gave his sensitive heart emotional indigestion, which he experienced as frequent nightmares. • Traumatic Stress. Those with a medical condition called post-traumatic stress disorder, such as combat veterans or rape victims, can have nightmares that are different in content and structure to regular nightmares. Experiencing extreme forms of trauma can produce nightmares that are more severe and that disrupt sleep cycles, which regular nightmares do not. While researching the nightmares of combat veterans, I created presleep stories as a sleep aid that attempts to restore the normal sleep cycles of combat veterans; details are available at InterpretADream. com. NIGHTMARES: THREE TYPESLike other dreams, nightmares can be distinguished by their origin and purpose. The most common nightmares engage your struggle to grow in character and personality. A few bad dreams deal with specific life fears, and fewer still predict actual tragic events. 1: The Most Common Type of Nightmare A NIGHTMARE THAT UNVEILS A NEGATIVE CHARACTER TRAIT. Facing an unpleasant truth about yourself is never easy. Everyone glosses over shortcomings like anger, acting stupid, or failing at something, and no one wants to face a weakness. As a result, when a dream holds up a mirror about a trait that does not jive with your “I am great” image, your normal reaction is to say, “That can’t be me. ” In colloquial terms, such nightmares expose your blind spots, which is an unpleasant experience for everyone. For example, a man had a nightmare about a raging bull charging through his grocery store and wondered if the dream was a warning that vandals would soon raid his premises. Since most dreams are about you—the dreamer, he came to see that the bull was a metaphor for his short temper when dealing with employees. Seeing himself as an out-of-control bull was not easy, but the image produced the desired effect. The man softened his attitude and as a result, the atmosphere at the grocery store became more relaxed and as a bonus, his sales improved. When a nightmare acts as a mirror of a not-so-great trait, it invites you to grow into a better version of yourself. After an initial “ouch,” you realize that the dream is an ally, helping you correct what could cause problems down the road. 2: A Scary Dream That You Meet Less Often FRIGHTENING DREAMS THAT PORTRAY ACTUAL, SPECIFIC FEARS. One of the functions of dreaming is to process your emotions. When a fear gets out of hand, a nightmare that relates to that fear is the equivalent of a pressure cooker’s safety valve that allows the hot steam to escape. In this case, the experience of having the nightmare, in and of itself, becomes an outlet for your exploding feelings. Acting like an emotional digestion system, fear-processing nightmares let you experience a fear as an external picture that your mind can examine and label. A “see it, name it, and label it” nightmare helps you digest your fear, and as a result, whatever tied you up in knots begins to unravel. Such nightmares handle actual fears, one piece at a time, until they disappear. You may encounter a sequence of nightmares during a time of enormous challenge such as a divorce or the sudden loss of a loved one. Then one day, a morning arrives when you feel a sense of peace. You do not know why you feel better, but you know you have turned a corner. Your dream digestion system—that you experienced as nightmares—has done its work. Nightmares that deal with true fears come with a bonus. A bad dream that relates to a painful issue can include an insight about how to handle what frightens you. A woman kept dreaming of a terrified young girl who walks to the edge of a murky black pond in the middle of the night. As she is about to fall into the deep black water, she sees a light in the distance and becomes aware that the light can lead her to safety. Upon discussion, those images brought back memories of the dreamer’s terror of being raped as a young girl. The light in the distance made her realize that she could resolve the unexpressed pain that had been festering for years. Thanks to the dream’s metaphor of a distant light as a place of safety, the dreamer became aware that she needed a counselor who could help her confront the emotional leftovers of her childhood trauma. 3: Actual Warnings—A Rare Type of Frightening Dream FRIGHTENING DREAMS AS TRUE WARNINGS. Most scary dreams are stress-related, a few may tussle with your actual fears, while a miniscule percent can be actual warnings about something dire. Nightmares can warn you about the possibility of a real tragedy that may involve death, serious illness, or a natural disaster—whether in your life, someone around you, or in your community. Or sometimes they are warnings about less serious matters. LESS URGENT, YET TRUE WARNING DREAMS. Before examining frightening dreams that are dire warnings, let’s take a look at dreams that address issues which are not life threatening, yet still urgent. For example, a dream may give you a heads up about how your words hurtfully impacted another’s feelings that you missed, and as a painful issue, it becomes cloaked in scary images. Or, a dream may point out what will happen if you keep eating three desserts a day; seeing what you look like in a dream, with an extra fifty pounds on you, can be pretty scary. Or, a frightening dream may point out a topic such as an unpleasant relationship, that you have put on hold, which now needs attention. Because these less urgent issues deal with topics that make you anxious, the warning dream can still be experienced as a nightmare. Such not-so-dire warning dreams touch upon intense topics that are not life threatening, but can still intensely shake you up. DREAM EXAMPLE: A FRIGHTENING DREAM ABOUT A NORMAL ISSUE—MY DAUGHTER IS IN A CAR CRASH. A mother dreamed that her daughter was in a car crash, and from a distance, she watched as her child was taken to the hospital. Afterward, a doctor announced that her daughter was okay. The dream felt so intense that the mother woke up terrified, fearing for her daughter’s safety. The mother brought up her dream at a conference. A conversation brought out how, at the time of the dream, her only daughter announced that she was about to relocate because her new husband had been transferred to a job a thousand miles away. Since mom and daughter had never lived more than a few streets apart, the mother experienced a nightmare that registered her shock and distress at the news. Nothing terrible had happened. The nightmare simply registered the mother’s reaction to the sudden, unexpected news of being separated from her daughter. A TRUE WARNING NIGHTMARE ABOUT A POTENTIAL TRAGEDY. Though extremely rare, a nightmare can be a warning about an actual tragedy as a type of ESP dream, as in the following example. DREAM EXAMPLE: A NIGHTMARE AS A TRUE WARNING—MY DAUGHTER IS IN A CAR CRASH. Another mother had several dreams that showed her only teenage daughter getting into a car with friends, then seeing the car in a deadly crash. Each time she had the dream, she debated whether to talk to her daughter about safe driving with her teenage friends but decided against it. Sadly, the repetitive dreams turned out to be an actual warning and she lost her only daughter. Meeting this woman at a seminar, I marveled at the grace with which the mother had resolved to learn about dreams, and to use future warnings for herself and loved ones. That took great courage. Only the divine hand can know whether a tragedy foreshadowed in a dream can be averted. However, no matter how a predicted event turns out, such actual warning nightmares serve a constructive purpose. On the one hand, they give a dreamer time to build up their strength and cushion the shock of the actual event, if it comes about. On the other hand, according to stories exchanged in dream circles, such warning dreams can, at times, avert the real danger. True dream warnings about dire events are extremely rare. They have noticeable features like repetition, intense emotions and literal details.
