To be naked in public and be embarrassed in a dream indicates that you are afraid that other people can see right through your usual disguises. You have a strong sense of self-doubt, and may consider yourself to be an impostor. If you are the only one who is naked, you are afraid of being singled out as less than others. You may be concerned about your capability and skills as compared to your peers. To be the only one who is naked also indicates a worry that you do not understand the true nature of those around you. You may be afraid that the outward presentation of your friends and family, who seem to love you and care for you, actually do not. This is a sign of intense self-doubt. Nakedness also refers to our infant state, it may be your inner child which carries these doubts, stemming from bullying or abandonment as a child.

To be naked and proud in a public place indicates that you have great self-confidence. You are very comfortable with who you are and are not afraid of what other people think. You may feel that you have nothing to hide, you have no reason to feel shame, and you will not let anyone else hold you back.

In a dream where you are naked and alone, not out in public, the interpretation is similar. The way that you felt about being naked makes a big difference in the dream's meaning. To be naked, alone and distressed suggests that the vulnerability you feel is overwhelming. In this case your fear of others and intense self-doubt have led you to cut ties with the world around you. You may also be feeling abandoned or helpless, as your inner child is struggling to reconnect with others.

A dream in which you are naked, alone and calm or happy symbolizes a reconnection with your inner child. This form represents your true self.
