What does it mean when you see yourself naked in your dream?
What It Really Means When You Dream About Being Naked
Dreaming that you are completely or partially naked is very common. Nudity symbolizes a variety of things depending on your real life situation. Becoming mortified at the realization that you are naked in public, reflects your vulnerability or feelings of shamefulness. You may be hiding something and are afraid that others can see right through you. Metaphorically, clothes are a means of concealment. Depending on the type of clothes you wear, you can hide your identity or be someone else.
Ah, so you want to know why you keep dreaming about chilling at work, running errands, or at school in your birthday suit, huh? Totally fair question. This is a super common dream. More on that later.
Until you get up during a meeting to give a presentation and you realize you are totally naked. Of course some people think it means nothing at all. But neuroscientists and psychologists are convinced that, apart from meaning, dreams serve an important role in maintaining our mental and emotional health. The study revealed that when individuals were awoken just as they entered REM sleep thus being deprived of being able to dream , they had more tension, anxiety, irritability, increased appetite, less motor coordination and more feelings of emptiness and depersonalization than when they were able to dream. And in the decades since Dement carried out that experiment, more studies have shown the same results and continue to provide evidence dreams do affect our emotional health , serving an important psychological function.
