Dreaming of wearing a kimono signifies embracing different aspects of your personality or exploring new cultural experiences. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It may also represent a desire for simplicity and tranquility in your life. Seeing someone else in a kimono, by contrast, could symbolize your perception of that person as being cultured, elegant, or peaceful. It could also indicate your admiration for their ability to maintain calm and grace in all situations. Both of these dreams suggest a longing for balance and serenity.

A kimono can be a very deep dream experience to to really give you a single answer for. To know without any doubts, I'd have to get an understanding of the dreamer's past and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of donning a kimono may symbolize your unconscious desire to express a more refined, disciplined aspect of your self, perhaps a yearning for the aesthetic and philosophical values of a different culture.

It's a complex concept though... It could also be a kind of a latent wish to adopt a more structured, ritualistic approach to life, akin to the Japanese tea ceremony. Observing another in a kimono, however, might indicate your projection of these qualities onto them, an idealization of their perceived tranquility and elegance. It could also suggest a sense of alienation or exoticism, reflecting your own feelings of being an outsider. Both instances point towards a deeper exploration of self and otherness.

Dreaming of wearing a kimono can be a spiritual call to embrace the serene and disciplined aspects of your soul. It may symbolize a divine invitation to explore the tranquil depths of your being, reflecting a spiritual yearning for simplicity and elegance. Seeing someone else in a kimono, however, may be a representation of your spiritual recognition of these qualities in others. It could be a divine message to appreciate the grace and tranquility in others, or a spiritual mirror reflecting your own quest for inner peace and cultural understanding. Both of these dreams are spiritual nudges towards achieving a harmonious balance in life, and a deeper understanding of the self and others.
