Bag Dream Meaning: From 26 Different Sources

Example: ‘I am in a strange town—usually where there are shops and lots of people. I don’t know where I am or how I got there, but I suddenly realise I have lost my handbag. I know no one and do not know what to do. When I panic I wake’ (Mrs R). Sometimes it represents the vagina, female sexuality; more often, as in example, it depicts the dreamer’s identity. Our sense of identity is often dependent largely on social contacts and recognition.

The bag, with all one’s per­sonal belongings and money, represents this social ability to get places and cope. Occasionally loss of childbearing func­tion. Idioms: bag and baggage; in the bag; pack one’s bag.

See examples in clothes, luggage; knapsack; suitcase.

The interpretation of the image of a bag is directly connected to what is held by it. At the heart of it, a bag represents your ability to carry some object or objects with you.

If you know what is inside the bag in your dream, use that to form your interpretation; in this case, the bag represents your access to the function of those objects and their potential use to you.

If you do not know what is inside the bag, consider that any bag can hold the mysterious and perfect thing you may need at just the right moment.

The structure of the bag may offer information about how strong your ability is to have resources nearby.

A paper bag will not last as long as one made of leather.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Depending on the actual bag (e.G.

A handbag, a shopping bag) and what is in it, we are probably hiding certain aspects of ourselves from public consideration.

To be emptying a bag suggests that we are attempting to get rid of old concepts or ideas or other aspects which may be holding us back.

To have lost a bag signifies that we have temporarily suppressed certain character traits.

Gives gender - specific: Whereas previously men carrying bags were seen as effeminate, this is no longer the case, so in dreams a man carrying a bag can symbolize his attitude to his responsibilities. In a woman’s dream a bag is more likely to represent her inner feelings.

Bags can carry connotations of secrecy, particularly sexual secrets (bags can symbolize wombs). Placing something in a bag or similar receptacle may represent something unpleasant we wish to avoid, so a bag dream could indicate the repression of awareness. Bags can also hold gifts and nourishment (grocery bags), and represent our hopes, wishes and plans.

The key to determining which of these meanings apply is the emotional tenor of the dream. (See also Basket, Sack).

Vision: An empty bag indicates a low bank balance—and it will continue to be low for some time. Carrying a heavy bag: you have much work to do.

A full bag: you will receive some money. Losing a bag: something is not working out, but the chance for success was low from the beginning. Rummaging in a bag and finding unexpected things: your unconscious is making you aware of character traits that you didn’t know you had.

See Backpack.

Depth Psychology: The bag contains character traits that can hinder or support you and, therefore, take a close look at what is hiding in the bag (your unconscious).

If the content shocks you, don’t “throw away the bag”—those traits would only come back later to haunt vou.

The bag represents the secrets and the most intimate psychological qualities that you have in life. For example, if it is full of junk it will manifest that you carry concerns. In this case, the problems are created by yourself. Instead, if it is full of food and valuables it will mean that you are incubating new ideas and knowledge.

Depending on what you do with the bag the dream’s meaning will vary. So, opening the bag and beginning to take out its content indicates the need to express your experiences or to reveal intimate secrets. But if you lose it, then it means that someone already knows about those secrets; and if someone steals it from you, then someone is trying to manipulate you. Similarly, the bag represents your responsibilities. Perhaps, you have taken on too many you had the chance to share them.

Oneiric superstition says that paper bags in dreams portend bad luck in business. Fabric bags, however, the heavier they are the greater the success that will come to you.

A bag (such as a purse, backpack, or tote) can represent: Necessities, or your needs in your daily life.

The amount of effort it takes to maintain yourself, your lifestyle, or your daily requirements.

Things you “carry around with you,” such as emotional baggage, judgments, biases, or other things that weigh you down emotionally or mentally.

Your ability to accomplish things out in the world, or the essentials you rely on to do so, such as your identity and skills (consider the meanings of the individual items in the bag).

Your responsibilities (such as financial, self, or family).

Losing your bag can represent a feeling or fear of: neglecting a responsibility; “losing out” because you’re not paying attention; losing something tangible or intangible.

Someone stealing your bag can represent a feeling or fear of victimization that interferes with your ability to accomplish things in the world.
