1- At its simplest, to dream of a sack can link with word play such as ‘getting the sack’. It brings a period of our lives to an end. possibly in a rather negative way. Perhaps in an effort to move on. we have created circumstances within our lives which make us feel bad about ourselves for a time.

The state of existence or consciousness from which we have grown; the state or condition prior to our develop­ment of personality—this can be personal, but it also relates to all human creatures, so is historical or evolutionary. It is a condition without ego, with a sense of being life itself. Going back to the womb, to the condition of withdrawal or autism: regression to the ‘womb’ state of awareness—therefore per­haps a time of not being able to meet the stress of having a personality with self awareness, a time of gaining respite and perhaps touching one’s roots of being in order to gain new strength.

So much of our foundations of experience are connected with our experience of prenatal life and birth that we may need to touch these experiences to heal or free pans of our nature for further growth.
