1- “flic clothes we wear in a dream can often depict the facade, or persona, we create for other people. We have certain roles that we adopt in response to other’s reactions. Clothes which others are wearing in our dreams can also set the scene for an acting out of some of the confrontations which take place.

2- Clothes can often act as a protection against being touched. This protection may also be against having the real self violated. Clothes can conceal or reveal. In covering up nudity they conceal our perceived imperfections and, by implication, disguise our sexuality. In revealing certain parts of us our dreams may show in what ways we are v ulnerable. Getting undressed can suggest the shedding of old beliefs and inhibitions. Losing one’s clothes or being naked highlights our vulnerability and fears. Dressing inappropriately, e.g. wearing formal clothes on a casual occasion and vice versa When we find ourselves in this position in a dream, we are conscious of our own difficulty in ‘fitting in’ with other people. It will depend 011 the dream scenario whether we are surprised or distressed. and it is often the emotion that we experience which gives us the correct interpretation. We may be deliberately not conforming to others’ perception of us, or trying to conform too much in adopting a certain role.

The colour of the clothing is often significant (see Colour). Clothes being worn by someone to whom they do not belong There is confusion in the dreamer’s mind as to which roles are appropriate for each character.

A man wearing woman’s clothing The dreamer needs to be more conscious of their feminine side.

A uniform on a woman The dreamer is highlighting the need to be aware of the more disciplined and masculine side of their personality. Changing clothes We are attempting to change our image. Clothes that have been cut short We may be outgrowing former pleasures and need to look to pastures new for our entertainment. Pretty clothes We have much to appreciate in our lives. Clothes belonging to a particular person We are being reminded of that person, even though we are aware that they cannot necessarily be with us.

Various articles of clothing are believed to have certain symbolic meanings:

Coat/Shawl (and especially a cloak) A coat can suggest warmth and love, but also protection. This protection can be either physical or emotional, and particularly in the case of a cloak, can be the spiritual protection of Faith.

A sheepskin coat may emphasise this significance (also see Sheep in Animals). Fear of losing the coat can suggest the fear of losing faith and belief.

The coat may be too short, or not thick enough We may be fearful that our love, or the protection we have, is not adequate for our needs.

Gloves - also see individual entry The meaning of gloves can be ambivalent. They can represent covering and protecting oneself, but also ‘showing one’s hand’ and challenging the status quo.


A hat is a symbol of wisdom and the intellect and also of protection. It can also signify both spirituality and sexuality, depending 011 the other aspects of the dream.


Pyjamas suggest relaxation and hence openness.

Raincoat A raincoat again holds the symbolism of protection, but this time against other people’s emotional onslaught. Very occasionally it may suggest some kind of wish to return to a womb- like state.

Shirt A shirt can suggest appropriate action, but also, as in a hair shirt, grief and pcnitencc.


Shoes signify our ability or otherwise to be grounded and in touch with everyday life.

Recognising shoes that we, or others, arc wearing in a dream are strange alerts us to an adjustment that needs to be made to our attitude to life. Lacing up shoes in a dream is supposed to be a well-known symbol of death as are shoes on a table. Tie A tie in can have several significances in dreams.

For some it can represent correctness and good behaviour, and for others, presumably because of its shape, it will signify the phallus.


When we dream of underclothes - whether our own or other people’s we arc considering hidden attitudes to self-image or sexuality.

Veil or veil-like garments (also see individual entry) When we, or others, are wearing a veil we are either trying to hide something, or arc only partially accepting knowledge about ourselves or our relationship to others.

3- Clothes can suggest spiritual protection.

For instance, certain types of clothes will highlight roles and status.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

If the house that featured in your dream was your actual home and some aspect of it was highlighted, you need to decide whether your dream was literal (if you were clearing out a cupboard, is this on your to do‘ list?) or whether it relates to some aspect of yourself (could the same dream be telling you to sort things through and reassess your priorities?). The foundations of the house symbolize the basic attitudes and processes upon which your life is built.

If your dream house represents yourself, what did your dream tell you about your foundations and structure? Were they sturdy and able to withstand bad conditions, or were they in danger of collapsing?

If your home is damaged in your dream, first consider whether you are worried about the condition of your home in real life; if you find that you are not worried about it all as you have just had a positive surveyor’s report, then consider the dream’s symbolic meaning.

If the walls or fences were damaged, this would allow outside elements to get through, so perhaps you feel vulnerable or undermined in waking life. Broken doors also indicate vulnerability and an inability to maintain boundaries. Broken windows leave you open to intruders and may affect your view of things.

Houses in dreams often represent parts of your mind or personality, so if you dream of leaving your current home to live in another house, this simply reflects your awareness of different parts of your personality. Maybe you have been moving from one part of yourself to another, trying out different aspects of yourself? Maybe you are trying to decide who you really are? To dream that your house is broken into suggests that you are feeling violated. It may refer to a particular relationship or current situation in your life. Alternatively, it indicates that some unconscious material is attempting to make itself known, because some aspects of yourself have been denied.

If your dream home is burgled, this may symbolize something you valued that has been taken away from you, leaving you feeling violated. Are you taking care of all of your valuables in your life, including yourself? Is someone trying to breach your personal defenses?... The Element Encyclopedia

This is one of society’s great taboos and if you had a dream in which you slept with your brother, sister, mother, father or any close relative, you may awake feeling utterly violated and repulsed. When your unconscious creates such images in your dreams, it is not attempting to highlight any form of sexual attraction but is showing your preoccupation with that person in some other way. Perhaps you are extraordinarily close to your brother or sister and your unconscious is trying to shock you into independence. Another interpretation suggests that you are involved with someone who has qualities similar to your relative. Alternatively, you may be picking up on something unwholesome or unhealthy about a current relationship.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you are a man and dreamed of visiting a prostitute or wandering in a red light district and your sex life is unsatisfactory in the real world, it may be that you are considering relieving your frustration in the same way.

If you are a woman dreaming of working for a pimp or as a prostitute or visiting the red light district, your unconscious may be craving an element of danger or you might desire to have power over men.

If the dream left you feeling violated and disgusted, this suggests that in real life your partner may just be using you for sex or taking advantage of you in some other way. Alternatively, do you feel that you have prostituted yourself in some way in waking life?... The Element Encyclopedia
