Dreams Dream Interpretation Dream

Have you ever had a dream where you are at a party, school, or the office and you suddenly realise you have no clothes on? Stricken with horror, you rush to cover yourself only to discover that no one else around you really seems to care that you are nude.

Throughout their lifetime, many people have reoccurring dreams of public nudity. Dreams of public nudity may be embarrassing, especially to people who are normally very modest during the waking hours. These dreams can mean many things, but it rarely means you have a great desire to run around and physically expose yourself.

Hiding Something
One of the most common interpretations of a dream of public nudity is that you are hiding something. You may be fearful that your true feelings about something may be revealed. You may be hiding a secret from family and friends and be very scared that they are going to find out the truth. This may make you feel very vulnerable during waking hours. By being nude in your dreams, it is a manifestation of your fear that people will see through you and your façade and discover these hidden feelings or secret.

Look at your life to see in what situation your philosophy is to simply grin and bear it. Maybe you secretly hate your job, but do not want people to know for fear of losing the job. Maybe you really despise your in-laws and try to keep the peace; you smile and act as if you enjoy their company. Ask your self, especially if this dream of public nudity is reoccurring, if you can make any changes in this situation to ease the fear of exposure.

Being Caught Off Guard
Another interpretation of these dreams is that of the fear of being caught off guard or unprepared for something. You may feel unprepared for a situation in real life – a job interview, a big project, a test, parenthood – and this dream is symbolising that fear. Try to determine what in your life is causing this fear and see what can be done to make you feel better prepared. If you fear a job interview, practice what you will say with a friend. If you fear parenthood, read up on some self-help books or take parenting classes in your town if possible.

Many people who fear speaking in public often dream they are naked in front of a crowd. This dream is due to the stress of the speaking engagement. If this is the case, make sure you are well prepared to speak on your topic. Knowing that you know all you can may help prevent these dreams in which you fear being unprepared.

Other Interpretations
In some cases, dreams of public nudity can be comforting and freeing if you have the correct interpretation. Perhaps the nudity is your mind’s way of trying to tell you that everyone already knows your true feelings or secret. You may have been fearing people finding out something about you, but look around and ask yourself it is really as big a secret as you think or do they already know.

Some people dream they are naked in a public place, but it does not really bother them. In this case, that means that you are fine with who you are and feel you have nothing to hide from anyone. This dream can symbolise freedom and openness.

Dreams of public nudity can be uncomfortable, but the key to easing you mind is to find out what is causing the dream. Do you feel unprepared for something? Do you fear public speaking? Are you hiding your true feelings about something? Do you have a secret you fear others may find out? Explore your life and the things going on within it. If you address certain issues, you may find your dreams of public nudity subsiding.

I dreamt I had lost my underwear and only had a T-shirt on but wasn’t particularly embarrassed. Was at a gathering with mostly strangers, one or two people I know, and the space we were in suddenly turned into a theme park and became a big party/fun fair . I spent sometime looking for underwear and the hosts (unknown to me) expressed concern that I want enjoying myself. I was feeling mesmerized by the sudden change in landscape to fun fair.
