“I dream that I am directing the traffic. To my horror, I suddenly realise that I am naked but to my surprise, nobody notices me!” – BG- Edinburgh

Psychological Meaning of Nude Dream:

Many sleepers are embarrassed to find themselves dreaming of being in a public place and being either naked or wearing only their underwear.  to some situation in their life. In the above example, the fact that other people are oblivious to the dreamer’s nudity indicates that they should discard as groundless any fears that they will be rejected if their real self is revealed. If you dream of being ashamed or frightened of being naked this may indicate a fear of relationships or of showing your real feelings. (Sigmund Freud once said that his favourite dream was being naked in a crowd of strangers!)

A dream of being disgusted by the nudity of another person suggests anxiety or aversion at discovering the ‘naked truth’ about a person, a situation or even about yourself. Acceptance of the nudity of others indicates that you see through people and accept them for what they are.

Nudity can also represent your longing for the lost innocence of childhood. It represents the real you stripped of pretence and imposed social conditioning. Nudity also has spiritual connotations: it is an expression of beauty and divinity. The ancient gods such as Venus the god of love, Diana the god of the hunt, or the three Muses who inspire the artist are all usually depicted naked.


Do I want people to see me for the person I really am?- It’s usually the best policy to be yourself despite what others may think. Examine the attitude of other people in the dream. Their behaviour may reveal what attitudes are holding you back from being the person you really are.

Do I feel guilty about something?- Often these dreams reveal a fear of being exposed. For example, have you been cheating in some way? Perhaps you have been putting up pretence or lying about something that you fear someone may find out about.

Do I fear disapproval?- You may fear that a plan will meet with disapproval from your colleagues. This may be particularly relevant if you dream of being naked at work.

Mystical Meaning: Mothers used to warn their daughters that to dream of being naked meant that the dreamer would soon hear about a terrible scandal. However, the gypsies believed that good fortune awaited the person who dreamed of being naked- particularly if it the dream was lit by the stars.

This dream can mean innocence or if you are a traditional Christian, it can refer to the Final Judgement.
