For the past couple of years, I've been having the same dream where I lose some of my belongings.
The location can be different but the situation is always the same where I'm moving out and need to pack up my belongings into handheld luggage. Basically I need to be able to fit everything in to two weekend bags.
Obviously, my belongings wont all fit and a lot gets left behind.


Does anyone have ideas what this dream means? Why do I keep dreaming it?

All dreams images are subject to the personal associations of the dreamer, you have certain ideas or pressures which you have feelings about, your unconscious mind then picks images and scenarios which, to your mind, represent those feelings. So really, the best person to interpret your dreams is always yourself.

Moving out is stressful, losing your home, your safe space, and obviously you are losing your belongings in this dream too, the restrictively small baggage allowance could be telling, or it could be a further sign of anxiety, the necessity of moving without the ability to move properly.

- Maybe you feel pressured to fit yourself into a box for others to accept you, and by doing that you are losing parts of yourself. (The luggage left behind)0
- Maybe you feel like you lost your safe place long ago, that the world is hostile and making unfair and unrealistic demands of you.
- Maybe you feel rejected by someone or something you trusted, hence losing your home and belongings and the unexpectedness of it is why you are so unprepared in the dream
- Maybe you just have too much going on in your life and you literally just cant seem to fit it all in.
- Or this could just be a desperation dream, that something just isnt right and you know you must make it right but you cant.

It really is down to what these images make you FEEL because in the end the dreams are all about feelings, and then you have to ask what is causing those feelings.

Usually, the first knee-jerk reaction is the correct one, the first thing to come to mind, even if your immediate instinct is to dismiss it, because thats how dreams work, your mind grabs the first image that fits, so working in reverse should be the same.

Actually, this could be a physical thing, some people have dreams which are your mind responding to physical problems, for his entire childhood (maybe longer, he just stopped mentioning it) when my brother was getting sick he would have the same dream right before, he would dream he was in a white open room with floating pillows which were all crinkly, he felt he needed to fluff them to be soft, but no matter how many he fluffed up they would get crinkly again. Your brain is often aware on a subconscious level of physical issues you are not consciously aware of, maybe its an illness dream? or an exhaustion dream? or just a general anxiety dream.

It's similar to a repetitive dream theme I've had for many, many years. I'm in a strange city that I don't recognize, I have no idea where I am, and I have no idea where I'm going, and as the dream progresses, I become more and more puzzled as to why I'm lost. In more recent years it's morphed slightly to include also not knowing where my phone is. It's got nothing to do with living in Finland, I was having it decades before I ever even thought of moving here. I always thought it was about deep seated feelings of insecurity and anxiety about feeling 'unsafe' and alone. Yours could be something similar.
