The interpretation of this dream depends on its aspect. If, in your dream, you abandoned something of a distasteful nature, you will soon hear favorable financial news. However, if in your dream you abandoned someone close to you, it signifies trouble, but don’t worry, you can overcome it by heeding the warning.

If you dreamed you were a witness to an abandonment of any kind, it indicates you will hear some news which will be important to you.

It is important to note what is being abandoned and by whom, as these things or individuals may be leaving the dreamer’s life soon or vice versa for good or bad. **You must consider this dream’s varying aspects in order to interpret it. Your unconscious may be giving you messages regarding what needs to be kept and needs to be let go. Traditional dream interpretations say that if you are the one being abandoned in your dream, it is a dream of the contrary and you may experience reconciliation or recovery from trouble or illness. Please remember that the unconscious is attempting to compensate for an imbalance in the conscious.

For example if you are overly attached to someone in daily life, in the dream state you may be abandoned by him/her. This is an attempt by the unconscious to make you aware of your dependency. ... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

Bag

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.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Bank

The bank represents your pool of resources, wealth, and accumulated energy. Therefore, dreaming that you save money or store jewelry or valuables in a bank reflects a clear need for safety and security to address the problems of life. On the contrary, if you withdraw money it means you will have enough strength and confidence to face such problems. Banks, especially the safes, represent your inner warehouse, your source of psychological potential. The unconscious is telling you to use your skill and energy reserves: your talent. Also, the dream can have a more literal meaning: you do not need to worry about the safety of your assets, as they are well kept.

If you dream of robbing a bank maybe you are making too much effort in something; there is risk of failure due to lack of resources.

If in the dream you deposit money in the bank you will soon receive financial support. If, however, you see empty boxes, it predicts financial doom.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Suitcase analysis of a dream

Carlos dreamed: “I was looking for my bag and could not find it anywhere. I was at the airport and my plane was about to take off. They announced the last call to board, and I could not remember where I had left it. I was very distressed, it had all my documents, valuables, and money. But I could not miss the plane because an important business meeting awaited me. I spent the whole dream running back and forth, searching every corner of the airport, but nothing, the suitcase did not appear and I couldn’t leave; the tickets were inside.”

When Charles had this dream he was suffering the first symptoms of mild depression. He felt very sad, insecure, and uncomfortable in his life, but did not know how to improve it. Searching in dreams alludes to a lack, something that we need for our emotional stability. The suitcase full of important things reflects the values that guide us in life, without which we would feel lost, like Carlos. The plane shows our desire to excel, to rise or transcend our daily concerns. The fact that he missed it indicates that he felt unable to move forward, despite his continued attempts (running from back and forth, looking everywhere . . .). A month later, Carlos began treatment with a psychoanalyst to overcome his sadness. After a few days, he found his oneiric suitcase in a dream and managed to catch the plane. In his waking world, he began to understand the causes of his discomfort and feel more satisfied and confident in himself.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Home

If the house that featured in your dream was your actual home and some aspect of it was highlighted, you need to decide whether your dream was literal (if you were clearing out a cupboard, is this on your to do‘ list?) or whether it relates to some aspect of yourself (could the same dream be telling you to sort things through and reassess your priorities?). The foundations of the house symbolize the basic attitudes and processes upon which your life is built.

If your dream house represents yourself, what did your dream tell you about your foundations and structure? Were they sturdy and able to withstand bad conditions, or were they in danger of collapsing?

If your home is damaged in your dream, first consider whether you are worried about the condition of your home in real life; if you find that you are not worried about it all as you have just had a positive surveyor’s report, then consider the dream’s symbolic meaning.

If the walls or fences were damaged, this would allow outside elements to get through, so perhaps you feel vulnerable or undermined in waking life. Broken doors also indicate vulnerability and an inability to maintain boundaries. Broken windows leave you open to intruders and may affect your view of things.

Houses in dreams often represent parts of your mind or personality, so if you dream of leaving your current home to live in another house, this simply reflects your awareness of different parts of your personality. Maybe you have been moving from one part of yourself to another, trying out different aspects of yourself? Maybe you are trying to decide who you really are? To dream that your house is broken into suggests that you are feeling violated. It may refer to a particular relationship or current situation in your life. Alternatively, it indicates that some unconscious material is attempting to make itself known, because some aspects of yourself have been denied.

If your dream home is burgled, this may symbolize something you valued that has been taken away from you, leaving you feeling violated. Are you taking care of all of your valuables in your life, including yourself? Is someone trying to breach your personal defenses?... The Element Encyclopedia

Bank

Banks and vaults in dreams represent your psychological potential. Your unconscious may be urging you to start using your inner reserves and energy rather than locking your talents away. On the other hand, your dream may simply be highlighting your need for financial security.

If you dream of robbing a bank, it may suggest that you are depleting your inner resources. If, in your dream, you were depositing money in a bank, this suggests feelings of security in waking life, although such a dream may also contain an element of wish- fulfillment.

Banking in dreams can refer to something you are storing within yourself; perhaps you are withholding emotion or important information. Freudians would regard dreams of safes or strongboxes as representing female sexuality, since these things usually contain valuables. As places for hoarding things, they may also suggest greed or an inflexible approach to life. Money is a symbol of spiritual power for Jungians, so the safe or strongbox may represent a storehouse of insights into your unconscious mind.... The Element Encyclopedia

Debt

In your dreams, debts may represent something you owe to yourself, such as time to relax, but they may also be a symbol of the debt that others owe you. For example, do you feel that you deserve more respect, consideration or attention from others in waking life? On perhaps you are in debt to someone or are in danger of becoming emotionally bankrupt or destitute?

A dream in which you were bankrupt or refused admission to something because you did not have enough money is a symbol of frustration in waking life. The lack of money in your dream could indicate people who are interfering in your life, obstacles standing in your way or your own lack of confidence.

Dreams of going bankrupt or becoming a pauper may also refer to the loss of cherished non-financial resources, such as talents, looks or friends.

If such a dream traumatized you, ask yourself what your lost dream riches could symbolize: the love of your friends, your self-respect or your energy reserves? Your dream may be urging you to take some kind of action to avert a real-life financial, emotional, physical or professional decline.

If you have a dream in which you leave valuables with a pawnbroker, this represents the sacrifices you are prepared to make in order to achieve your goals. The pawnbroker may also represent someone whom we admire but whose advice or example is questionable; a pawnbroker can also serve as a symbol of low self-esteem.... The Element Encyclopedia

Old Age And Maturity

As we move towards maturity, we find that we are freer to explore parts of ourselves that may have been put on hold because of family or work responsibilities. During this stage of their life, men often explore more feminine or softer modes of being—or their anima—in their dreams. This usually occurs in their fifties or sixties, when they can relax more after having attained a level of mastery at work and children may have left the nest.

Women also feel freer to explore the world in bold new ways in this stage of their life. They often feel confident and full of energy; dreams in which the animus expresses itself or in which they find hidden rooms and valuables are not uncommon. Although the menopause marks the beginning of the second part of life rather dramatically for women, men are also subjected to reminders that time is chasing them and these may show up in dreams of being chased by a tiger or escaping a fire. Dreams of losing teeth or body parts at this stage of life may reflect a concern with aging and the loss of their youthful self. Additionally, dreams with themes of impotence or loss of fertility signal a loss of sexual power.

Dreams of loved ones who have passed away may also occur, both as an expression of grief and also as a way to help us accept our own mortality.

Dreams about getting sick or ill may also reflect the typical concerns of this stage. Alongside dreams of loss and adjustment, however, dreams at this stage of life also reflect hope and renewal; for example, dreams in which you discover hidden treasure. You may dream of a well drying up in your garden, but then discover a casket of treasure at the bottom of the well, which suggests the uncovering of hidden resources and new opportunities.

If you aren’t in this stage of life and dream of it, your dream is most likely reflecting your hunger for the wisdom, calmness and maturity that only age and experience can bring.... The Element Encyclopedia
