Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

LOST : Many symbols are more about emotions than anything else. So try to see dreams about losing someone as being about loss in the wider sense("a loss of dignity or authority", "a lack of direction", "a loss of interest", "a loss of concentration").

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Do you feel unable to achieve what you used to do?
- Do you lack direction at the moment?
- Is there someone that you fear losing?
- Did you feel humiliated yesterday?
- Are you trying to learn some new skills with not much success?

KEY WORDS : Dignity, lack of authority, lack of direction, tired, missing out, needing, unprepared

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "It is very difficult to understand. Its not an easy subject to learn"
- "Its not what I really want to do - but I have been put under pressure to do it"
- "I would rather be doing something else"
- "My life LACKS DIRECTION at the moment"
- "He seems tired out"
- "I lack the command and authority that I once had"
- "I realise that I am going to have to make some preperations or it will be a disaster"
- "I DO NOT FEEL as important or needed as I once did"
- "I really FEAR LOSING HIM"
- "I really feel I have been missing out"
- "My life is really not going anywhere"
- "I seem to have LOST that feeling that ...."
- "I was so humiliated and did not know what to do"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of being lost in dreams?

Feeling lost may suggest that you feel unable to move in a direction that you wish to go. E.g.

"I've always wanted to tell my mother that I want to become a model , thinking sHe'd be a little understanding but I've always found it so difficult cause she's always going on about how she can't see any way I could be anything other than a pharmacist" [Dream Dictionary - I knew I was lost]

"I am sick of people trying to get me to help them out. I think people take advantage of my good nature. I just find it difficult to turn them down though " [Dream Dictionary - I was lost]

"I have been pressured to study accounts but really I want to study biology even though its less of a practical subject" [Dream Dictionary - We were lost in caves]

"I have been unable to find work but more importantly I feel unable to discover my direction at this point in my life. " [Dream Dictionary - 'lost' in a parking lot ]

"I keep having dreams about my ex boyfriend. I am now married, but i still have contact with him. We talk and we're friends. He recently told me he still has feelings for me and I for him. I feel very guilty" [Dream Dictionary - I am lost and my ex boyfriend has come to find me]

"Yesterday I was thinking a lot about jobs and how its unfair how some people get jobs easily by using contacts. Its so annoying that people lie on CV#146;s. I am unemployed and cannot get a job. Its all so unfair. People reject me and they do not even know me" [Dream Dictionary - I was lost in a money factory]

Feeling lost may show that you or someone close to you is mentally exhausted or tired out. E.g.

"My father is suffering from dimentia and I am worried about him" [Dream dictionary - my father is lost]

"I am unemployed and exhausted right now" [Dream Dictionary - lost in an array of tunnels]

Feeling lost may suggest that you feel confused about something and unable to come to some definite conclusion. E.g.

"This girl is sometimes nice to me then she behaves completely differently" [Dream Dictionary - I wasn't really lost]

"I have become interested in dream interpreting again and right now I am exploring some new ideas. I am not so sure what the dreams mean yet right now its exciting and I like this feeling of exploration and connection. " [Dream Dictionary - turning back before I am lost]

Feeling lost maybe a reminder to put some extra effort into something. E.g.

"I am due to take an airplane journey soon and need to get everything sorted. Its vital everything is right" [Dream Dictionary - I am lost in airport]

Feeling lost may suggest someone lacks the power and dignity that they once had. You maybe feel humiliated. E.g.

"I have started to realise that my father has not got the authority he once had" [Dream Dictionary - my father looked tired and lost ]

"I got stood up on the night before the dream" [Dream Dictionary - we are lost]

"My son is growing up and I feel lost and without a role" [Dream dictionary - son getting lost in the house]

Losing someone may suggest that you fear that they will not be part of your life anymore. E.g.

"I have an adopted son. Now his birth mother has come back into his life I worry that he may choose her over me. I recognise that meeting her is important for him. But I just find it all very difficult. I fear that I may lose him in years to come." [Dream Dictionary - lost site of him completely]

"My daughter was nearly killed the other day and my son was looking after her. If she had died then he would have been deeply traumatized as well" [Dream symbol - lost two children]

Losing something may suggest that you feel you have not lived up to your own image of yourself. You may have suffered a loss of dignity. E.g.

"I have trying to address my own laziness. I have been trying to get up earlier. But yesterday I just slept in. I know I have got to get out of these bad habits if I am to progress in life" [Dream Dictionary - contemplating all that I have lost]

Losing something may suggest that something in your life is not as important or meaningful as it once was. E.g.

"I am having a baby and husband is in his fifties. I am not sure that he really wants the baby" [Dream Dictionary - lost my precious baby.]

"I am currently married but to give you insight, the man that I am married to, was not the best choice and it has taken me 8 yrs of marriage and not heeding other's warnings about my marriage to this man to realize this, but do not have the heart to file for divorce, even though I know it is truly best. [Dream Dictionary - I am losing the battle]

Losing something may suggest that you feel you have missed out on something. E.g.

"I have always had family problems. Now I am going back to my home town and hope things maybe sorted out a bit. I want to feel that sense of family again" [Dream Dictionary - I lose my dog before he dies]

Losing someone may symbolise attempts to shake something off. E.g.

"I have been so stressed at work recently. I still cannot get rid of all the tension and anxiety. When I woke up I thought it would have gone but I still cannot get rid of it. I just want to be able to think clearly and not be worn out" [Dream Dictionary - my guard manages to "lose me" in some sort of hallway]

"somebody recently said that I was a mover and a shaker, which I thought was quite odd since I'm normally shy" [Dream Dictionary - lose site of my cousin]

Losing someone in a chase may link to some argument that you do not quite understand. E.g.

"I have been trying to nice to people around me. But I got into difficulty with my boss. I was trying to befriend her as I know that she is ill with cancer and been undergoing chemotherapy. She did not want anyone to help her." [Dream Dictionary - he could have lost me easily]

Losing someone may suggest that your opinion on them has changed and somehow your relationship has changed. E.g.

"I used to get on with my manager but now I find him creepy and do not like talking personally to him." [Dream Dictionary - lose site of friend]
