Blending in or going unnoticed
To disguise one’s true feelings in order to prevent disapproval and rejection
Camouflage has the effect of making an object disappear or appear to be something else.
The symbolism is therefore of information deliberately hidden or occluded.
Psychological / emotional perspective: We hide – both from ourselves and others – those aspects of our personalities with which we cannot deal. This is a defensive mechanism which when highlighted in dreams, needs to be considered very carefully.
Material aspects: Whereas camouflage in nature is a spontaneous occurrence, in man it is a more deliberate act and for many is associated with war or dangerous situations. There may be a threat to our integrity or sense of control.
To dream that you are in camouflage suggests you are hiding your true self and feelings. You are hiding who you really are.
Dreams of camouflage symbolize that you are hiding; wanting to blend in, or be unnoticed because perhaps you feel your survival is an issue. You may feel it is unsafe to let the full spectrum of your colorful expression shine through. See Chameleon.
