It is often the “mental baggage”, which we carry with us from our life experiences, that has shaped us in positive or negative ways.

Dream of losing your luggage – Symbolism
The suitcase doesn’t necessarily need to be associated with a trip in a dream. The appearance of the suitcase must be related to a journey in a dream.
The most crucial question to ask in this situation is whether the case has wheels or castors. It is a seemingly simple question, but it has great significance.
The act of packing a suitcase to go on a trip can be interpreted as an optimistic dream symbol. Dreaming is about preparing for his trip actively. Since you pack the suitcase only a few days before your trip starts, it can also be interpreted as a sign of departure.
The suitcase must be well packed. Bad packing can indicate poor preparation. Dreaming may not be ready to travel or the dreamer should have a calmer, less chaotic approach.
Sometimes, suitcases are seen in dreams which do not relate to a travel trip. The meaning of the suitcase dream symbol is altered in such dreams. Different uses of the case can be made. The case is used as a container, or storage area.
Even when not on the move, most people use their luggage. Because suitcases can be too heavy to carry around, most people use them for storage. For clothes. Summer is the best time to ditch thick sweaters and jackets.
The winter clothes can be stored in the suitcase. It is then placed under or on top of the bed. You have a lot more space for your winter clothes and you can easily grab something warm from the suitcase if you suddenly feel cold.
In dream interpretation, what’s outsourced to the luggage is crucial. These objects can be used as dream symbols to represent something.
It doesn’t matter if you pack 50 packets of pasta or put your socks and shoes in a suitcase. You can only store things temporarily in your suitcase. These items aren’t thrown away, they are stored or hidden.
These objects are important indicators of what the dreaming stored symbolically. It usually refers to problems, burdens, or characteristics of the dreaming.
If a woman carries her lingerie around in her bag, then it’s likely she is having problems with her sexuality or love life.
It’s likely she doesn’t have the time or motivation to put on sexy, sexy lingerie.
She stows her things instead of throwing them out, so she is hopeful that it will change.
These things can indicate mental disorders. They could be a sign of a traumatizing experience that the dreamer believes he has overcome. In deceitful security, he weighs himself.
Most often, things get stowed away in bags that can be used later. A traumatic experience will not be something you wish to repack later.
It belongs instead to the group of things that can’t be separated. These things are common to all of us. It’s useless and it doesn’t belong in your home.
You don’t want to sell the item, but you can’t bear the thought of throwing it away. You decide to keep it safe in a bag.
Trauma dreams can indicate that the trauma is not over. Imagine someone is involved in a car accident. He was able to survive, but has been having nightmares since. The images of his wife, who was left in the rubble and covered in blood, are still vivid in his mind. Since then, he wakes up sweaty from the night before and has driven a car since.
However, life must go on. He recognizes that he is in need of help, and enlists in therapy. He is successful.
He soon forgets his nightmares and is able to drive again. In his dreams, he imagines how he will pack the gown that his wife was wearing during the accident in a suitcase.
This is for him a sign of his ability to overcome this experience and live “freely”.
Although he has not been involved in the accident, and is therefore spared from the horror of seeing a corpse on the ground, it’s possible that traumas that were thought to be over will reopen and bring back nightmares.
These dreams could also be a sign of interpersonal issues. Perhaps he is more spontaneous. However, his wife is quite the opposite. Everything must be meticulously planned and must follow the plans.
The dear dove transforms into a dangerous dragon whenever he suddenly changes his mind. He is a peace-seeker and sticks to his plans.
It is important to understand the dream as a warning. You shouldn’t suppress your personality.
The dreaming asks his dreaming to have a dialogue with his wife to reach a compromise.
An internal imbalance can be indicated if someone places personal belongings in the suitcase they have envisioned. The person only keeps the things that are most important and his own. He symbolizes that he will burn off parts of his self which he does not use or can’t live without. This could also be about character traits that he suppresses.
He might be a jovial, funny person in private. However, such traits are not appropriate for his position as a prison guard or judicial officer.
