Dream: Showering in public
The dreamer shares:
“The context and background situation are not always the same but I frequently dream of having to shower in public. Sometimes, it is in a shower room in a public facility – like a gym or a swimming pool, but the shower rooms sometimes have no doors. At other times, in the open; on a train carriage, for example!
I feel no shame at stripping in public (for some reason in these dreams I just have to take a shower, even if the context seems inappropriate), only the frustration that the shower often doesn’t work, or I am interrupted. In other words, I never get to finish the shower and emerge clean. The frustration is never resolved and the dream usually ends there, or it changes into something else.
This dream sometimes (but not always) recurs together with another recurring dream situation, which is where I am trying very hard to get somewhere – an appointment, a concert, a deadline and so on – and I never manage to. There is always an obstacle to my progress. The vehicle I am travelling in is either slow, breaks down or turns into something else. One time, I was in an elevator that turned into a bus and drove me through the town! Like the shower dream, I never get to the end of the detour or the journey, and I wake up with the vague sense of unfulfilment and exhaustion.”
What does it mean to dream of showering in public?
Your dream of showering in public seems to represent not just a desire to reveal your true self, but also to reach an ‘essential’ state of purity. This is an important personal quest – it doesn’t matter what others think of your nakedness or the circumstances that you are in. You ‘just have to take a shower’.
The transportation symbols are another way of showing how you are travelling towards this goal or destination – towards a pure state, whatever purity means to you. Although the dream goal itself changes, I feel you are already know what you seek. You are part way there, making progress, but frustrated by obstacles.
Although you try many different methods in both dreams (e.g. shower venues, modes of transport), full expression of your life direction is has not yet been fulfilled – and that’s perfectly OK!
There is a sense of urgency in your dreams that doesn’t necessarily apply to real life. Chill out. You instinctively know the ‘what’ of your life. The ‘how’ will unfold naturally if you give it a chance. Enjoy the journey.

I had this dream. I felt so shame. I’m on a quest to self love and achieving goals and being my true self. I put on intense medication vibration Synctuition orbiting sounds lastnight. They’re proven to help align your life and universe. It’s amazing 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
Emotions in a dream are always relevant. What parts of your true self do you hide away?
Oh wow. I have the same type of dream and was trying to look up the meaning. I never paid attention to the second part, the part of unfulfilled travel.
I have a sense of my own Dream interpretation. I am at a phase of life where I really need connect my true self and show but I do have many obstacles in real life. Come to think of it in my dreams, I see people who are considered friends. And I guess that’s my subconscious just telling me that I do have real friends in this life who will help me to see within and pull by real self out.
Why did this come up related to what I searched and it was posted on my birthday 3 years ago. 😭🤔
Synchronicity is a powerful thing. Your heart knows why you are here.
My dream started in a restroom I was in the shower getting ready to wash my hair & next thing I knew it was no a room & there was people all around the shower & the shower curtains kept falling I was never able to finish my shower
Oh, Mercedes, how interesting. Explore the symbols of washing your hair and the falling shower curtain.
The hair/head speaks to me of how we present ourselves to the world; it’s the most visible part of our bodies; people largely judge our appearance based on the appeal of our heads. Hair reminds me of Samson’s strength and also of beauty. Our heads/minds/crown chakra is our link to the heavens/spirituality.
Perhaps there are people in your life interfering with your spiritual aspirations? The barrier function of the shower curtain seems to support this idea of transition between the realms. A shower curtain is designed to keep the water in it’s designated place. The dream may speak of fear of judgment from others and the associated emotional fallout.
I just had a dream recently. I was like a kid when i was happily being nude taking a bath using dipper and a pale filled with cold crystal clear water right beside of a stall full of things waiting to be purchased and then there is one guy which is the entrepreneur who has been looking at me. I was not in shame but was sitting in a nice way enough to not let people see my private areas and then as time passed by, i told to the guy ‘People are not moving to leave, i am shame’. He just smiled and laugh and then i smelled something and looke at my right side, i saw my bf with a smiling looking perfect face. And to that, i finished my bath. He entered the open stall of goodie things and handed my stripe towel and i followed him right in just a second with a smile unconciously being naked. And i remembered that their is one man appeared who has to be the who have crush on me but his facial is not familiar to me. But in the end, i wrapped myself in my soft as cotton towel and joined my boyfriend
Thanks for sharing your dream, Rachelle. This dream seems to explore the moving boundary between being comfortable in your skin and choosing to conceal parts of yourself. I think the ending sums it up well with the comfort you experience when wrapped up in the towel, which your boyfriend offers you. He is kind and respectful of your choice to be naked or not.
Dreaming of seeing unknown little bay boy naked , showering at outdoor alone by himself , I was convincing him to stop the tap and about to call his mom , where he says no , and continue showering in cold water , shaky .
little boy resembles, known grown men in my life
( my boy friend )
Thanks for sharing your dream, Pradeep. I suspect this dream reflects the innocent or childlike nature of the similar looking men in your life. Perhaps they desire (and yet reject) advice from the women in their life (ie you)?
I had a dream
I was taking a shower in public outside my grandparents yard. There were a lot of people going up and down the street but I just carried on showering. The funny part this is a spot where I use to chill with my now soon to be ex husband on big days he’d come by the house and park there. What does this mean really
Thanks for sharing your dream, Thokoza. It seems that you are cleansing yourself of your relationship with your ex and you are happy for him to know. If you’d like to explore the dream in more depth, please book in for a Focused Divination (on the Services page).
