The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge


  • dream shame (seen or experienced) mobilizes defensive forces against a threatening moral decline.
  • the result of the fear of one's expression and of surrounding criticism.
  • being ashamed of your nakedness (your own or that of others): has nothing to do with morality in the unconscious; shows that the dreamer is still unable to reject personality and accept the real form of his own individuality; the dreamer's fear of showing himself how he really is (see Nakedness, naked).
