The keywords of this dream: Lose Loss Lost


ABANDONMENT / FEAR / LOSS OF CONTROL

Dream images connected to feelings of abandonment, fear and loss of control all have some form of conflict as their theme. For example, dreams about missing a bus, train or airplane all point to some kind of tension in the dreamer about failing to achieve a goal. Dreams about being abandoned or left alone by a group of loved ones suggest feelings of anxiety about being left out, or being different from the crowd. Anxiously searching for the right road or path could point to fears about losing your identity.

If you are happily wandering alone in your dream, this may suggest a feeling that the source of your problems lies outside yourself. Dreams about anchors and lifeboats also tell of the fight for survival in daily life.

If you dream of being lost in dense vegetation, towering trees or tall reeds, you may feel that your progress is being thwarted by obstacles. As in the tale of ‘Hansel and Gretel’, this dream may evoke longing for the comfort and warmth of home.... The Element Encyclopedia

BEING LOST

Possible meanings

You dream that you are lost, desperately trying to find your way home. No matter which direction you take, you never manage to find the right road and nobody you meet can help you. Often this dream indicates that you want a more fulfilling job or a different lifestyle but you have no idea how to proceed.

If you come to a crossroads and don’t know which way to take, it may mean that in waking life you are faced with several choices. You have to make a decision but don’t know what to base it on.

Your destination sometimes provides a clue to the meaning of the dream. Perhaps you are trying to get back to a place where you used to have happy times. This suggests that your current lifestyle is unsatisfactory. If you are looking for a place you associate with your youth the dream implies concerns about growing older.

Being lost in a place that feels dangerous reflects feelings of unease about a current situation. The dream is a warning that someone or something is posing a threat to your well-being.

Dreams about being lost have special significance if you’re middle- aged or elderly. The further you progress along your journey through life, the more essential it becomes to reassess your values and your priorities. Otherwise the more spiritual side of your nature remains unfulfilled so that, at a deeper level, you feel ‘lost’.

Questions to ask yourself - and what to do when the answer is ‘yes’

Do / feel unfulfilled?

  • If you find your job meaningless, career counselling could help you to identify both your innate abilities and the skills you’ve acquired through experience. It would also galvanize you into finding a more satisfying way of using them. Ifyou need to reassess your entire lifestyle, you could benefit from the services of a life coach.

Am I faced with several choices?

  • Your dilemma is offering you the chance to sort out your priorities, consulting your heart as well as your head. What do you most want from life? Which of the available choices would be most likely to help you get it? If you still feel confused, then why not follow a path that will make you feel glad to be alive?

Do I tend to live in the post?

  • The more you cling to the past, the less meaningful your life will seem. You need to find a way of rekindling your enthusiasm, perhaps by injecting some fresh stimulus into your life. This could mean finding the courage to do something you’ve always longed to do but lacked the confidence to try.

Do / long to find my ‘spiritual home’?

  • Your dream is urging you to embark on a quest for self-knowledge and find a more authentic way of being. This means turning your attention within, perhaps through meditation or prayer. Spiritual counselling or psychotherapy can also help you to get in touch with your inner world and find your ‘inner home’, a state in which you feel emotionally and spiritually fulfilled.

A closet represents the individual’s place for keeping true feelings. This dream shows the need to hide something. Possibly you are not addressing issues as you should.

If it is hidden, its location reflects difficulties when dealing with others. And if it’s messy it means the subject suffers emotional problems. On the contrary, if it is clean, organized, and full of beautiful items, it certifies the health of spirit and possession of a great inner wealth.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams

CLOSET

You are attempting to hide something. This is a dream about having a hidden agenda or about some sort of avoidance.

A closet is a place used for storage.

The items found in a closet usually fall into one of three categories: frequently used items kept out of sight for the sake of organization, things stored for later use, and forgotten objects that we continue to hold on to even though they have lost their purpose.

A dream that features a closet as a primary image or location may need to be considered through one of these themes. Many objects found in a dream closet connect to shame.

The level of this will correspond to how hidden something is and / or how much fear there is around it. Keep in mind, however, that a closet is also a storage space where we file away things we no longer need on a regular basis. There may be old thoughts, feelings, or ways of being that need to be recognized and discarded in order to make room for new growth that is on the horizon.

The phrase “in the closet” has come to be linked almost exclusively to an individual who is hiding their homosexuality. However, in a dream, this can refer to any hidden side of the self. What you discover in a closet should be viewed through the focus of something you are hiding from or not wanting to face.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

CUPBOARD / CLOSET / WARDROBE

If you dreamed of opening a cupboard door to find that it opened into an empty room or a room you hadn’t seen before, your dreaming mind is telling you that you are ready for new challenges in life. The time is right to begin a new project or make a change. The dream can also suggest hidden memories and emotions, suggestive of the ‘skeleton in the cupboard’.

If the cupboard is open, closed or you are trapped in it, this indicates how open or closed you are to other people and the possibility of change. To see a closet in your dream symbolizes something in your life that you have kept hidden. It may also signify an unveiling of previously hidden aspects of yourself as in ‘coming out of the closet’. Storing clothes in the wardrobe or dressing room may express the image you want to present to the outside world—or in Jungian terminology, the persona. A locked wardrobe indicates a desire for privacy, whereas a wardrobe overflowing with clothes suggests extravagance.... The Element Encyclopedia

DESTRUCTION / LOSS OF CONTROL

Dreams of your own death or the death of a loved one do not mean that you or someone you love are going to die; they do, however, require you to take stock of your health and the way you manage your life. Many dream experts believe that dreaming of your own death can signify a rebirth, the shedding of the old and a new beginning. In many cases, these dreams represent being involved in painful relationships or unhealthy habits or situations that have a destructive effect on you. Dreams of actually killing or murdering someone or being killed or murdered yourself in a dream are not very common, but if you do experience such dreams they may indicate deep and unresolved emotional and psychological conflicts that are interfering with your emotional and psychological health in waking life. There is a part of you that feels dead or out of control or there is a part of your life that you wish would disappear. Such dreams of murder or killing can also express violent and powerful rage. What is making you feel so angry in waking life?

Dreams that present you with undisguised imagery—the roof falling in on you, or your car stalling on a motorway—may be warning signals to pay greater attention to the care and maintenance of yourself and the things around you. Other common images in nightmares and bad dreams include: menacing strangers, clifftops, dark woods, alleys, forests, heights and depths, land or sea storms, earthquakes, tidal waves, terrorist attacks, outbreaks of disease, friends or family who suddenly become cruel, dangerous, old or ugly, guns, knives and other weapons threatening you, car or plane crashes and being lost. All these scary images leave you with a sense that your place in the world is uncertain or shifting. You are out of control in a big way and your sense of self is eroding. Dreams in which your whole world is rocked or changed are clear symbols of fear, anxiety and a crisis in confidence. Dreams in which you sink slowly but inevitably into quicksand or are swallowed by an angry lion usually represent feelings of being overwhelmed in waking life. Dreams in which you are drowning have a similar interpretation. See also STAGES OF LIFE.... The Element Encyclopedia

ENCLOSED, ENCLOSURE

The defences we use, such as pnde, beliefs, anger, to protect ourselves from deeply feeling the impact of the world, relationships, love, anxiety or pain. These are often felt as traps or restraints, even though they are parts of our own personality.

For instance one may feel trapped by one’s own feelings of dependence upon family.

Example: ‘1 am trapped in a bricked room with no way out and I shout for somebody to help me. Then either a big bird or a creature with long arms tries to catch me, and I scream’ (Karen S). Karen had previously lost a baby, been divorced, had an unsatisfying relationship with a man. She feels trapped by the defences she has herself built ‘brick by brick’, but is frightened of the opportunity of change represented by the bird. What encloses or traps us in our dream gives a clue to what constrains us in waking.

Example: ‘As I go through a tunnel it either gets smaller so I can’t get through, or it goes on so far there is no end to it. I am trapped and terrified’ (Don M). This son of enclosed dream is typical of trauma relating to a difficult binh. In fact Don’s mother was in labour for four days, and never had another child because of the pain. ...

LOSS AND FRUSTRATION

S ome dreams leave us with a painful sense of loss; dreams that take us back to happy times in the past, for example, or dreams of being abandoned, lost or bereaved.

In some instances, such dreams can reflect feelings of regret about actual events or people you have lost but more often they are a symbol for something missing in your life; perhaps direction, confidence or intimacy or even a sense of personal identity. Another explanation suggests that such dreams are a warning that you are in danger of losing something important. Perhaps you have not been valuing or appreciating an aspect of your life enough. Finally, a dream of losing something or someone important can also suggest lost opportunities, past relationships or, according to Jungian analysis, forgotten aspects of yourself.

Your personal associations to the thing you lose will give you clues as to the emotional meaning and possible interpretation of your dream.

Dreams that leave you with a sense of frustration or anxiety are very common; you will almost certainly experience this kind of dream at some time or other, especially during times of stress in waking life. The stress may be triggered by an exam, a job interview, a relationship breaking up or fears of failing; this stress can express itself in dreams of falling or being confined, or dreams of feeling frustrated by a machine that doesn’t work or finding yourself naked in the middle of a busy street. According to Freud, such dreams are inspired by sexual frustration or anxiety, but most dream analysts believe that they stem from deepseated feelings of inadequacy or frustration in all areas of your waking life, not just the sexual. Another thing to consider is whether the frustration in the dream was ‘because’ of something. In other words, did it happen because you took a wrong direction, because you went along with a particular person or because you didn’t listen to advice? If you are able to pinpoint a cause or reason try to define what the‘because’ factor is in your everyday life.

However, disturbing, upsetting or frustrating such dreams can be they are not meant to cause more anxiety. Your dreaming mind has conjured up these images to enlighten and strengthen you. Whenever you have a dream that leaves you with feelings of loss, regret or frustration, try to pinpoint exactly what caused you the most anxiety in your dream as this may hold the key to understanding the root of your fear.

If you are able to understand the message of your unconscious, you will feel that you are in a better position to face your fears or at least to find ways to manage it if you are unable to conquer it.

This chapter covers some aspects of loss and frustration but there are countless others. For example, you can lose weight, hair, teeth, vision, smell, possessions, friends, your freedom, your personality, your children, a body part or even your own life in a dream. Dreams of being chased, paralyzed, imprisoned or missing a train can all refer to stressful situations in your waking life. Refer to the relevant entry in the index for the significance of other dream symbols of frustration and loss. See also NEGATIVE EMOTIONS.... The Element Encyclopedia

LOSS OF BODY PARTS

Because the body often represents the self, loss of body parts or injuries to your body in dreamland can symbolize the emotional pain of losing parts of yourself. A dream that some part of your body is amputated can leave you with a feeling of irreplaceable loss. Such images may refer to the loss of a loved one but they can also appear when what you have lost is less tangible—for example, the love or respect of someone or your own self-respect. Psychologists give the name‘fragmentation’ to the process when you give up parts of yourself in order to fit in with or please others. This is something we all do, but if your own true nature is overly censored, the unconscious may send out warning signals about what you stand to lose by the denial of aspects of yourself.

Dreams in which you lose a hand or a foot,are missing an internal organ or have a body part disappear or fall off are therefore often signs that some part of your potential is being lost due to the path you have chosen. The common dream of losing teeth may reflect waking problems but can also symbolize loss, the break up of relationships, moving house, moving away or any other change which involves the ending of one phase in life and the beginning of another.

If the teeth become loose but stay in your mouth choking you, this could mean that you are holding something back or keeping your thoughts and feelings to yourself; the price is some form of damage to yourself. A dream in which you lose your virginity is a reflection of the loss of childhood innocence. What have you lost recently in waking life that has damaged your previous system of beliefs?

LOST

Dreams of feeling lost denote that you are venting out feelings of insecurity and powerlessness while you are in the midst of a transition or transformation. Keep in mind that it is typical and healthy to feel unfamiliar, awkward, or out of your element as you integrate into your next level of evolution. Or perhaps you are lost because you’ve not taken the high road. This dream may be a message to rethink your steps, and travel mindfully from this point forward. See Abandon....

LOST

If the dreamer is lost, there is a department in his life in which he has “lost his way.” Look to other symbols in the dream to judge which department this is.

If in the dream he finds his way, all should be well. But if he awakens before he finds himself, he should probably seek outside help with regard to the matter in question.

If an object is lost, or a beloved friend or pet, the dreamer needs to assess what that object or being, and the loss thereof, means to him.

For example: A dream of losing one’s wallet could mean fear of financial loss. Look to other symbols in the dream to find ways to avoid what one fears. Astrological parallels: Neptune, Pisces Tarot parallel: The Moon... Dream Explanations of Astro Center

LOST

Dreams in which you are lost link with feelings of confusion, lack of direction or conflict. The dream environment in which you are lost will define what the confusion or conflict is about. Sometimes this lost feeling arises because there are issues or changes in your life that you have not acknowledged or do not want to acknowledge.

If you have this dream, ask yourself in what sense you have lost your way. Have you lost your identity, are you confused about your career goals or unable to make clear decisions? Do you feel as if you have no direction in life? Identifying the problem area and considering your options should help you get right back on track. In spiritual terms, you do not know what you are looking for until you find it and the search for lost objects represents the search for enlightenment. Some psychologists believe that dreams about being lost may also signify a new beginning as they express the anxiety of leaving behind the old and familiar.

Dreams in which you are lost in a maze or labyrinth are classic symbols of difficulty or confusion in various areas of your life. Dreams in which someone else is lost represent issues or feelings regarding that person that are unresolved; they can also indicate a lost opportunity. Consider also whether there are aspects of the person you have dreamed you have lost within your own self. Perhaps you need to recapture and re-acknowledge those aspects. To dream of losing your partner is a common dream for people in long-term relationships, showing that you are exploring their possible death. It is not a prediction, only an awareness of a situation that may or may not occur whilst you are still alive or together with them. Dreams in which you are happily wandering alone in a desert, forest or unknown land may be prompted by feelings that the source of all your problems lies outside yourself. Your dreaming mind is urging you to look within for the answers.... The Element Encyclopedia

LOST / TRAPPED

In these extremely common dreams, you are lost and feeling desperate. You may be buried alive or locked in a cage. Or you dream of not being able to move; you are powerless to scream or breathe. Such dreams may occur when you feel confusion or conflict about how to act in waking life. The images are influenced by biological roots and experiences. Feeling trapped or unable to move also mirrors what occurs to the large muscles of the body during normal REM sleep, when they are paralyzed to prevent the body from acting out dreams. Such dreams could reflect frustrations in waking life, such as feeling trapped in a relationship or a deadend job. The flip side to such dreams is a dream of discovering new spaces; you may open a door in your home to find a new room or find something new in the neighborhood. These dreams occur usually when you feel that an aspect of your life is opening up.... The Element Encyclopedia

LOST OBJECTS

Your dream suggests a preoccupation with lack and limitation, for we are usually looking for something that we already have.

The feeling of searching for something important and being unable to find it is challenging enough when it happens in life. In the language of symbols, it also taps into a deep fear shared by all people: the elusive search for meaning that all of us have to face from time to time in our lives. On the face of it, a dream of searching for a lost object has a primary purpose of helping us relieve stress so we can wake up the next day and face our day-to-day lives with greater psychic balance. This is the purpose of all recurring dreams of this nature.

If you have this dream on a regular basis, it may simply be a convenient way for your unconscious to process the pressures of everyday living. What it is that you are searching for should be your first consideration. Your personal associations with this object will reveal what you sense is currently elusive. When in doubt, ask yourself, “What does this thing do, or what is it for?” Keys represent your access to the various compartments of your life. Your wallet connects you to abundance and the ability to meet your needs in the world.

A more personal or specific item should be viewed through whatever meaning you assign to it.

If there is no specific thing that you are searching for or you do not know what it is that you have lost, the dream may be pointing to a free-floating sense of being inadequately prepared for some situation in your life. Where you are looking offers the next shade of meaning. Your own home connects to your personal sense of self. Any other environment should be used to guide you; where you feel that something has been lost may be telling you that a certain area of your life has left you feeling incomplete....

You may try to retrace your steps but can’t find it and the problem gets worse when you realize you have also lost your keys and money. The loss of a dream purse or wallet suggests that change is occurring in your life and you are experiencing it largely with a sense of loss, confusion and even as a threat to your being. Your dreaming mind is urging you to reconnect with the things in life that bring you reassurance and joy, and to look towards the future with optimism instead of panic.... The Element Encyclopedia

TEETH / LOSS OF TEETH

Vitality, relatives, friends, and lovers; but this image also has a predatory and destructive side. See Vampire.

As far back as Greek mythology, teeth were said to refer to children.

The reason probably was that, during pregnancy, mothers experienced the rapid loss of their teeth (“Each child will cost you a tooth”).

In mythology teeth are considered similar to seed corn, comparable to dragon’s blood. In addition, teeth symbolize the oral qualities of the dreamer.

The possible reason for this might be an eating and biting urge, or the repression of it. And, last but not least, teeth, like Mouth, are used to take in food. See Beauty, Face, Bones, Bite.

According to Jung and Freud, teeth are often a phallic symbol; and according to Freud, dreams about toothaches are considered masturbation dreams.

According to the newest dream research, women often dream about teeth during menopause.... Little Giant Encyclopedia

USE IT DON'T LOSE IT

The biggest problem in living and learning is that people will not consistently use the tools they have been given. If you go to the trouble to program a dream, get insight on a problem, and do not implement it, what is the use of all the bother? Life is very simple, but we must ask, receive, recognize and implement. The follow through is the big one. Having the courage to trust the inner self, to act on our inner convictions, opens us to freedom and full self-expression. Remember that you are the architect and builder of your life. You can have great plans, but the daily work of construction and implementation is what gets the job done. The conscious mind or waking state is really our time for home work. It is the time to practice the lessons, to put the insights to work. It is not goof-off time. Many people who have been meditating or watching their dreams for years with no apparent change in their lives can discover the reason is quite simple. If you spend twenty minutes in meditation, or ten minutes writing down a dream, and then do not watch the negative thinking and self-destructive habits of living the other twenty-three plus hours, you have achieved little. Dreams and meditation give us the lessons and principles. Waking reality gives us the creative opportunity to practice using them. To grow and change we need to integrate insight into our lives. We need to practice, practice, practice. The irony of it is that we create all the situations in our lives to teach us things. We set ourselves up for lessons, and when they come along we feel hurt. Self-pity means you need to be aware of your illusions. The very hurt and fear that you feel is part of the lesson you yourself have created. When you stop resisting the feeling and realize that the persons involved in the situations are just actors on the stage, then you are free to receive insights into what is going on.... Dreampedia

VIRGINITY, LOSS OF

If you dreamed of losing your virginity and you are a virgin in real life, your dream may have mirrored your fear or anticipation of the event. If, however, you are no longer a virgin and have a dream like this, your unconscious could be referring to a loss or innocence or sense of disillusionment in your waking life. Perhaps a friend wasn’t as kind or thoughtful as you thought they would be or someone let you down.... The Element Encyclopedia
