The feeling of searching for something important and being unable to find it is challenging enough when it happens in life.

This is the purpose of all recurring dreams of this nature.

If a specific object or objects appears and reappears in your dream, it tends to point out a valuable perspective or new approach towards a problem. Try to take note of the function of the object, what purpose it serves and in what kind of situation you would be likely to find it, as it can show how your response to a situation can be improved.
