The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • long nails: emphasize sexuality.
  • painting your own nails: the dreamer is emphasizing to others his own sexual attraction; the desire for a partner relationship.
  • seeing others paint nails: the desire for a partner relationship.
  • dirty nails (having or seeing on others): the result of moral impurities from waking consciousness.
  • fear of having nails pulled out: subconscious fear of castration (see Castration).
  • a broken nail: weakened sexuality.
  • the dreamer cuts (files) his nails: active work in self-improvement increases the power of feeling in the consciousness at the expense of a weakened sexuality.
