Common Dreams: Losing Things

Your question: Losing things (includes Being Lost in a Dream)

“I dream about losing things. What could be behind this dream?

If the objects you lose in the dream are not specific then this could represent an overall fear of loss that you have in waking life,  which has manifested in your dreams. You may have suffered a bereavement and this could be how it’s manifested in your dreams.

To dream of losing your handbag or your wallet can represent a financial situation with which you need to keep an eye on.

Being lost in a dream is common following retirement, divorce or at certain  times in life where change has either been thrust upon you; even something as  simple as reach a certain milestone in age (e.g. 30, 40, 50) can prompt this  dream. Dreaming of being lost can suggest you may have reached a crossroads in life or that you’re not really sure which direction to take next. Sometimes  this may relate to a change in career or that you’re feeling unsure about which  path is the ‘right one’ and so inevitably remain still rather than take a step in to the unknown.
