The meaning of Luggage in dream | Dream interpretation
Baggage generally symbolises material and psychological concerns. Look at where you have become emotionally entangled in “stuff” and are holding on to things.
• Clutter is anything you don’t use, need or love. Everything you own has a call on your attention however subtle.
• When that is an old emotional pattern or stuck behaviour it can be incredibly draining. Learn to let go of what no longer serves you.
Packed bags are associated with death and endings, whilst being unwilling to let go of your baggage or luggage suggests a desire to ward off aging and death. Baggage left on a platform suggests a willingness to begin a new phase or stage in your life. Although suitcases can denote travel in some dreams, an alternative explanation is that they represent emotional baggage you carry around in your head and that is why it is important to consider the luggage or lack of it in your dream.
A broken engagement is foretold by a dream of Luggage of any kind, such as trunks, suit-eases, bags, etc.
Our symbolic baggage is nothing but the material we consider essential to “travel” through life. For this reason, losing your luggage is evidence of the inability to perform what you intend, because of lack of resources, or knowledge, or skills.
If it is too heavy and you can hardly move it, the dream indicates that you need to make concessions and revise your values.
If you give your luggage to someone the dream can express your desire to get rid of certain responsibilities.
Sometimes you carry too many material possessions, desires, concerns, and needs. This weight is delaying your spiritual progress. The lighter this luggage the more pleasant your life journey will be.
To dream of luggage, denotes unpleasant cares. You will be encumbered with people who will prove distasteful to you.
If you are carrying your own luggage, you will be so full of your own distresses that you will be blinded to the sorrows of others.
To lose your luggage, denotes some unfortunate speculation or family dissensions To the unmarried, it foretells broken engagements.
1- Luggage in a dream can be slightly different to baggage in that luggage will symbolise what we feel is necessary to have us go forward. It can be those habits and emotions which have helped us in the past, but which can now be reappraised before being ‘repackaged’.
2- When luggage appears as a symbol in our dreams we should perhaps look at whether it is ours or someone else’s.
If ours, it signifies those views, altitudes and behaviours which we have brought through from the past.
If it is someone else’s, then we may be looking at family or global concepts which no longer are useful to us.
3- Spiritually if we are to travel ‘light’ we must often find a way of unburdening ourselves. Luggage in a dream can help us to envisage this.
Dreams of luggage represent memories, heartaches, unresolved feelings, and attachments to the past and incomplete communications that you are carrying with you.
The heavier your baggage, the more unresolved the emotional business you have. Consider the contents of your luggage. Your subconscious mind is giving you the message to resolve these issues so that your load can be light and your karmic debt can be resolved.
1. Possible travel in the ofﬁng.
2. Coming change, often in a relationship.
3. Repressed emotions or recollections.
4. Sense of self, self-worth.
A dream that signifies difficulties in your path, though it depends upon the quantity of Luggage you have with you, and whether you are able to deal with it successfully.
For the lover, it foretells quarrels, slight or important according to circumstances.
Luggage in a dream suggests you will not be happy in a certain real life relationship until you can be honest about your true feelings.
See Suitcase, Pocketbook, Backpack, Package, and Box. All symbolize a burden (everybody carries his own baggage) or, less often, energy and making plans. Energy reserves. Possibly a reference is being made to dowry and inheritance, which could be a burden as well as an opportunity. What talents are at your disposal? What tasks are connected to them? According to Freud, a symbol of sexuality.
Luggage may indicate the dreamer wants a vacation. Alternatively, it may mean it is time to move on.
Spiritually, if we are to travel ‘light’ we must often find a way of unburdening ourselves. Luggage in a dream, particularly as luggage on wheels becomes more available, can help us to envisage this.

Lugging a heavy load; preparing for a forthcoming move
Luggage is a container used to transport certain desired objects so that you can function in any location. As a symbol, any piece of luggage represents your ability to have access to various tools for living that you may need in any given situation. There is a strong cultural association with the “baggage” that you are carrying in your life as representing unhealed wounds from the past and the difficulties that you unconsciously bring to all of your current relationships. Use the sensations of the dream itself to determine whether your dream is relating to luggage as a tool for effective living or connecting to the work you may still need to do in the realm of intimacy.
Symbolic of travel or carrying around things from your past, Matt. 11:28
The habits or attitudes, or the emotional environment we have created in our life, a baby or our feelings about being a parent. See bag; knapsack; suitcase; example in clothes.
(1) Luggage may symbolize what you need to get rid of: old habits and attitudes, old conditioning.
(2) It may symbolize a desire to - or a need to - get out of some present situation; or fear of having to do so. Perhaps your unconscious is hinting that it is time you ‘packed your bags’. See also Bag.
