The meaning of Lapse in dream | Dream interpretation
Any kind of spiritual lapse or falling away from our beliefs will reflect itself in dreams, sometimes by a sense of foreboding or other negative image.
Psychological / emotional perspective: A slip of the memory or an inability to hold on to information can manifest in dreams as a lost object or a sense of searching for something we know we have once had.
Material aspects: When we have not been totally true to our own principles we may experience this in dreams as a lapse of attention or lack of attention to detail.
