To see or carry luggage in your dream symbolizes the many desires, worries, responsibilities or needs that you are carrying with you and weighing you down. The size or weight of the luggage parallels the demands you are facing. You need to reduce your desires and problems in order to alleviate the pressure you are putting on yourself. Perhaps you feel that you are being held back by past emotions or issues. Alternatively, luggage symbolizes your identity and sense of security.
To dream that you lose your luggage represents a lost in your identity. Consider how you feel when you discovered that your luggage is lost. If it is a positive reaction, then it signifies an opportunity for you to start fresh. If your reaction is negative, then it suggest that you are feeling lost.
Luggage may represent your responsibilities. It may also symbolise the worries, habits and attitudes you carry around with you. Perhaps you should lighten your load and become a little more carefree. If you dream of giving your luggage to someone else this may show a need to delegate responsibility.
We have too many material possessions, desires, worries and needs that weigh us down and slow our spiritual progress. My guru Sai Baba says “Less luggage gives more comfort and makes travel a pleasure. Reduce your desires, and this journey to Sai can become a real pleasure for you”. Diminishing the luggage (shedding desires) is Vairagya. If we lessen our desires then life’s journey, will be comfortable.
Luggage indicates karma – baggage you are carrying from something in your past. This can be something from as far back as childhood or it could be baggage from a previous relationship or other venture. The dream will nearly always indicate how this baggage is affecting something you need to do in the present. Losing your luggage or items from your luggage is actually a good symbol in a dream. It is a request to let go of baggage or past issues that you are carrying around. It doesn’t matter in the dream what is in the bags. The bags represent issues that are holding you back.
Dreaming of luggage is a very common scenario because dreams often explore what we hold onto and what needs to be released as we grow. The situation surrounding the luggage will reveal what you are ‘carrying with you.’ In many cases, the luggage is lost as you become more open to the idea that you are carrying unnecessary baggage. If someone else is bringing your luggage in a dream, they may have a strong influence on your sense of identity. If the luggage is associated with wrinkled or dirty clothes, you may have feelings of unworthiness that while carried with you, are being examined in preparation for release. If the luggage is associated with regal or formal clothing, your sense of self esteem is being examined. If the luggage reveals an unusual or inappropriate type of clothing, you may be opening to unexplored potential as your identity is undergoing transformation. Whatever is revealed when you open the luggage provides clues to the ideas that you are exploring.
