Under immense pressure to prove yourself, you may be dreaming about hanging out clothes. It’s likely that people around you don’t have the right impression of who you are and what values or qualities they should associate with your name.
You might think that there are some particular traits or characteristics which other people do not know about. In the dream, you have a clothesline on which these personal features hang in the open for everyone to see them.
When people doubt your words, you feel anxious that others won’t get a good idea of who you are. You then have an anxiety dream where clothes hang on a line and represent the characteristics of your inner self.
In our dream, we may hang up outer clothing to show what we want others to see of us in public. When feeling anxious about opening the inner self only, hanging underwear is enough for us. If we completely believe in ourselves and want others to do so too, then we would see ourselves hanging both our inner and outer clothes on a clothesline in a dream.
In a dream where you are torn between revealing too much or not enough of yourself, there may be no lines left on the clothesline to hang any more clothing. This could represent your indecisiveness about how much self-disclosure is appropriate in certain situations and with whom. What do you choose?
It is common for people to experience revulsion towards snakes and other reptiles in their dreams. You might see a clothesline turn into a snake that falls on you while hanging up your laundry, causing discomfort and restlessness during the night. It is indicative of your subconscious fears regarding personal life experiences.
