Symbolic of travel or carrying around things from your past, Matt. 11:28

Lugging a heavy load; preparing for a forthcoming move

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.

Psychological / emotional perspective: 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, attitudes and behaviours that we have brought through from the past.

If it is someone else’s, then we may be looking at family or global concepts that no longer are useful to us.

Material aspects: Luggage in a dream can be slightly different to baggage in that luggage will symbolize what we feel is necessary to have us go forward. It can be those habits and emotions that have helped us in the past, but which can now be reappraised before being ‘repacked’ for more efficient use.

Gives gender - specific: As more people travel on business, luggage in both men’s and women’s

Psychological / emotional perspective: Usually in dreams, when something appears as luminous, what is represented is transparent, easily understood and with a quality beyond the norm.

Material aspects: As a reflection of a piece of work or project that has been well executed, an image may appear in dreams as filled with its own light, i.E. Luminous.

Gives gender - specific: In both men’s and women’s dreams, love and passion can give a luminous quality to images. It is as though the energy has taken on a different quality.

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 in a dream suggests you will not be happy in a certain real life relationship until you can be honest about your true feelings.

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.

1. Possible travel in the offing.

2. Coming change, often in a relationship.

3. Repressed emotions or recollections.

4. Sense of self, self-worth.

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- 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.

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.

A broken engagement is foretold by a dream of Luggage of any kind, such as trunks, suit-eases, bags, etc.

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.

Example: ‘In last night’s dream the baby I dream about incessantly had been locked in a suitcase but was quite unscathed when taken out, except that it was very dirty, but still not crying. I do not have any memories in connection with these babies and the only feelings I have are those of remorse that I have neglected the baby. I have had four chil­dren of my own, none of whom were ever neglected in this way’ (Mrs C). Mrs C uses the suitcase in at least two ways. One is her womb, or reproductive ability. Although she has had four children, this does not stop her unconsciously desir­ing more.

The second is what ‘luggage’—emotional feelings, urges, thoughts—she carries.

Generally, it depicts the womb, what one carries inside oneself, such as longings, attitudes, fears; how we see ourself socially—the luggage might be a sign of status, how we rate ourself; also a symbol of independence or going somewhere.
