All dreams in which cloaks are protagonists have different interpretations. So on one hand, to shed the cloak symbolizes the need to shake off everything superfluous. To put on a cloak means you are moving away from your essence and are not true to your authentic Self (the cloak, in this case, performs the functions of disguise). (See COAT and DISGUISE)
Dreams reflect our actions that we have already performed. Most of us have dreams activities relating to our past life. One of the common dreams that every individual has gone through is their experiences during the school life, where you would get images of teacher hitting you, making you feel numb and shameful.
