The meaning of Losing something in dream | Dream interpretation


If you lose something in your dream, this suggests that you have become distracted in waking life and have lost sight of what really matters. Ask yourself what it is you have lost and what it may symbolize. It may be an opportunity, a relationship, a way of thinking or even your own identity. Do you no longer feel as if you belong somewhere? Alternatively, the image may be a symbol of something that is missing from your life that you never had in the first place. For example, if you lost your car, you may have lost a sense of direction; if you lost money, you may feel you’ve lost your self-confidence or something you value about yourself; if you lost your key, have you forgotten a solution to a problem or perhaps the key to self-knowledge? If you simply can’t work out what significance your lost object has to you, it might help to do a free association exercise (write down the first 10 or so words that immediately come to mind in relation to that symbol) to decipher the lost object’s symbolism, to decipher what it is that you need to find.

If you dream that you are recovering lost property, the nature of the property recovered, together with the feelings of relief and joy it brings, will indicate the focus of your dream. For example, if you recover your purse, this is linked to identity and a renewed sense of self.

If you recover your wallet, this is linked to finances. Do you now feel in a stronger position? If you recover a camera are you trying to hold on to memories or seeking a false sense of security? If you recover lost clothes are you seeking a new self image? If you recover shoes are you recovering your footing? If you recover your lost phone are you re-establishing communication with some one?

To dream of the loss of an object denotes repression, shyness, an inferiority complex, shame, and ultimately fear. The sense of loss is linked to guilt. Also, you should ask yourself what the misplaced object means to you.

If it is you who is lost, it symbolizes the beginning of a new life phase and expresses your nervousness about leaving behind what has so far been familiar. However, this meaning may be the reverse: in reality you do not know which direction to take. In such moments of utter confusion, it is advisable to go along setting small goals and gradually achieving them.

SOMETHING IN THE BEDROOM

One of the most common dreams of early childhood is that there is something scary in the bedroom: a monster in the wardrobe or aliens in the corner of the room. A child may feel as if something or someone is coming to get them. These kinds of dreams tend to reoccur and it is easy to assume that something is upsetting the child in waking life; it is worth noting, however, that these dreams are amongst the most common in childhood, as a child reaches out to discover the world with all its excitement—and sometimes dangerous possibilities.

If there is tension in the home or a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency, this can trigger stressful dreams for a child. Scary monsters tend to represent people, whereas bugs or slimy things may represent situations. You may have to be patient and gentle, and create a feeling of stability as your child learns to adjust to changes in the world around them.... The Element Encyclopedia

SOMETHING COOKING IN THE KITCHEN

Male and female sexuality, as well as family life in general, are symbolized by the utensils and vessels used in cooking. The cooking fire or oven is traditionally the focus of the household and can symbolize the deepest center of your being; something burning in the kitchen should therefore alert you to problems in your family life.

If you are preparing a meal in your dream kitchen, this may suggest a quest for love and affection.

If you are frying food in your dream, there is the constant risk of getting burned; the smoke billowing around your kitchen may be warning you that a problem could get worse if you avoid it or don’t deal with it. Cinders or a grate in your dream kitchen can represent ruined hopes as well as the potential of projects yet to be born.

If you dream of a kettle, even though its spout it is a symbol of male sexuality, it suggests that someone can get hurt if passions are not handled carefully. On the other hand, it could also indicate your present mood: steamed up and about to explode. At the other extreme, the image of a broken kettle may mirror feelings of emptiness, as if all zest for life has gone.

If you are cooking with pots and pans, the association is with male or female sexuality, depending on whether the pot or the handle is featured.

When a cup is seen to represent female sexuality, drinking out of it is erotic wish-fulfillment.

If it is hurled across a room by a man, it may express fear of, or anger towards, female sexuality; if by a woman, the dream suggests that the dreamer is using sex as a weapon. For Jungians, the cup is a homely symbol of the abundance of life’s opportunities; it is also a symbol of self-realization in that it is an echo of the Holy Grail. A full or overflowing cup often symbolizes excitement and new opportunities, but an empty or smashed cup indicates the opposite.

Cutlery in dreams may suggest a desire for domestic security or the taming of aggression. Spoons may have a similar symbolism to cups, but they can also represent a desire to be spoonfed. A teaspoon may be telling you to take things in one step at a time. A silver spoon may refer to someone you envy. A colander or sieve may be seen as standing for the process of developing a new outlook on life and sifting out unhelpful attitudes and ideas. See also EVERYDAY THINGS.... The Element Encyclopedia

LOSING THINGS

When this dream occurs review what are the truly “precious” and “important” things that you want to take with you and decide what you can safely let go of to allow space for new growth.

• Dreaming of losing things tends to reflect a life that is so overwhelming you’ve lost sight of what’s important to you. Your dreaming mind is left to process the personal frustrations that you haven’t dealt with because you’ve been too ‘frantic’ or anxious.

• This dream can be resolved by addressing the balance of your daily activities.... The Premier in Dream Dictionary
