Dream Decoding

August 22, 2015

Yesterday I left my purse on a train. I realized as I was walking through the doors of the transport but kept on going. And when I got to the stairs I panicked and realized it was gone forever. I only had one thing inside – a brand new iPad. Then I woke up.

Vivid dreams are nothing new to me. I can wake up and talk my husband’s ear off for a good half-hour recounting endless details of my sleepy adventures while he blinks a few times, bewildered.

Every once in awhile I use Dream Moods Dream Dictionary to get insight into why I’m dreaming about certain things. Who knows if it works, but it’s always fun to see how it pairs up with what’s going on in my life.

So let’s break it down.


“To dream that you are on a train symbolizes your life’s journey. It suggests that you are on the right track in life and headed in the right direction. Alternatively, the dream means that you have a tendency to worry needlessly over a situation that will work out in the end.”


“To dream that you lost your purse denotes loss of power and control. You may have lost touch with your real identity.”


“On a symbolic note, losing things in your dream suggests lost opportunities, past relationships or forgotten aspects of yourself. Your personal associations to the thing you lose will clue you into the emotional meaning and interpretation of your dream.”


“To dream that you are walking up a flight of stairs indicates that you are achieving a higher level of understanding. You are making progress into your spiritual, emotional or material journey. The dream is also analogous to material and thoughts that are coming to the surface.”


“To see an iPad in your dream represents modern life and your connections with others. It also suggests that you want to put something on display. Consider the significance of what you are doing on the iPad and how that parallels an aspect of your waking life. Alternatively, seeing an iPad in your dream may be a pun on ‘your home’ or ‘your place.'”

Lately I’ve felt a slight loss of control. It’s different than most times I’ve felt that way. It’s more of an unofficial “letting go” in a few areas of my life that I needed to part with a long time ago. Being a mommy has made me realize that not everything can always be perfect, planned to the tee, or predictable. Perhaps this dream was a nod to that chapter of my life coming to a close.

Have you ever participated in dream decoding?
