An interpretation of dressing dreams

An interpretation of dressing dreams

This interpretation is from ""The Dream Interpretation Dictionary: Symbols, Signs, and Meanings" and is provided by J.M. DeBord aka "RadOwl". He is the author of several acclaimed books about dreaming, the host of The Dreams That Shape Us podcast, and is a moderator of r/Dreams, one of the largest dream sharing communities on the internet. In simplest terms, getting dressed is preparation. You get dressed in preparation for whatever comes next: a date, work, or going out with friends, for example. Which in turn can connect with love life, work life, or social life. Preparation is a physical representation of how you present yourself and the persona you project. Persona is the identity worn over the inner you. Mood and attitude are like layers of clothing, additions to the image you project. For example, getting dressed in a tuxedo jacket can symbolize a mood of extravagance. Another simple way of describing getting dressed is that you cover yourself with something protective. In a personal sense, you protect yourself from prying questions about your feelings by always wearing a smile. Everything’s awesome! Or you protect yourself from risk by always having extra funds in the bank, symbolized as carrying a big purse. Next step is to connect the symbolism of getting dressed with the type of clothing worn. See: Clothing Dressing someone in a dream can mean you’re in charge of that person, the same as when a parent dresses a child. It can mean you’re influencing that person’s behavior or public image. If you are slow to get dressed, it can mean you are having difficulty making a decision, especially in relation to what you want to do with your life. See also: Closets, Clothing, Undressing
