Detailed dream interpretation

If you dreamed about a curtain which was merely in the background, or which gave you no other content for dream interpretation, then your subconscious is simply trying to warn you of the effects of hiding yourself from the world. If you do not put yourself out there, you will never be able to accomplish all of the hopes and goals you have set for yourself throughout your life.

Dreaming about a curtain shows that there is something in your life that you keep hidden from others. It is good to hide things from time-to-time; everybody should be able to keep their own secrets. However, it can come to a point where the people in your life no longer know how to connect with you. You must offer something of yourself in order to keep a relationship or a friendship intact.

If the curtain in your dream is closed, then there is something you are keeping a secret that you want to shout out to the world, but you are not sure how to do this. If the curtain in your dream is open, then you are ready to start something new. You are hoping to get out into the world and make a difference by offering something of yourself.

If you close a curtain in your dream, then your subconscious may be trying to tell you that you can sometimes reveal too much of yourself. You may have told a secret that you were supposed to keep to yourself, or maybe you feel like somebody has been asking you too many personal questions.

If you pull open a curtain in your dream, then you are longing to connect with somebody or to start a new opportunity. You may feel like you want to find a partner or a new friend with whom you can share your life. Alternatively, you may be feeling like you want to get out there and try something new. Perhaps there is a job offer or a romantic fling in your future.

If the curtain in your dream hid the daylight, then you are hiding far too much from the world. You should try to work on your shy inward nature one step at a time. If the curtain in your dream was closed at an appropriate moment, like during the night, then you know exactly when to reveal something to other people and when to keep your mouth shut.

If there was somebody hiding behind the curtain in your dream, or if you hid behind a curtain in your dream, then you may be afraid of opening up. You have to learn to be able to communicate your feelings.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Hiding your true feelings from the world.
  • Keeping secrets.
  • Exposing your inner fears.
  • Relationships and maintaining open communication with your partner.
  • Building trust with others and with yourself.
