One common dream theme that men and women have is dreams about being lost or dreams about losing something. The lost dream theme can vary in several different ways. You may become lost in your dreams or you may have lost a particular item. Lost dreams can portray yourself in a variety of different locations, situations, and circumstances. Lost dreams can also refer to losing a love or losing a specific aspect of your self. In this article, we will discuss lost dreams and lost dream meanings. We will go over a variety of different scenarios that may have come about from your dream about being lost. We will also help guide you so you will be able to try to correctly interpret your lost dream.

Since lost dreams are common, the emotions that bring them on are shared by many. The main thing is that your not alone in this situation. Now, most commonly, lost dreams represent emotions of confusion, frustration, hopelessness, and exhaustion. Lost dreams are often linked to anxiety in our waking life. Your dream about being lost may represent these exact emotions in your life. Lost dreams don't exactly represent negative emotions. Rather, dreams about being lost symbolize that we are at a crossroad in our waking life.


If your were alone in your lost dream, this may portray that you are feeling alone in your waking life. This type of dream can be brought on by a number of different factors. Have you lost a close loved one or friend recently? Are you no longer friends or talking? Some men and women prefer living alone as they adore their peace and quiet. For you, your dream about being lost is probably nothing more then an aspect of your waking life. However, if you prefer and relic being surrounded by others, your lost dream may suggest that love and friendship is needed in your waking life.

If your lost dream portrays someone else being lost, this can represent that you are missing a similar quality found in that person. Remember, dreams are often portrayed by our own traits, characteristics, and attributes. If the person that you dreamed about is giving, this can suggest that you are missing this same quality in your life. If you dream about a stranger being lost, this may represent that you have lost a quality about yourself, possibly one that you may have forgotten about.

Lost dreams can also symbolize that we have lost our direction in our waking life. Issues, situations, and circumstances have caused you to alter your plans or your path in life. Your dream about being lost is representing this change of course in your life. You need to analyze your current situation and figure out where you want to be in life. Make the appropriate changes that are needed so you can get back on the right path.

Being lost in your dream can also represent insecurity in your life. Men and women can feel insecure about a variety of different things. Many men and women feel insecure about their physical appearance. Women usually have more insecurities in this specific area. You may be insecure about the way you look. You may also feel insecure about money, relationships, or sex. Everyone is different and we all have different wants and needs. If you feel insecure about something, change it! If you feel that you are overweight, lose weight. Insecurities can cause anxiety and a variety of negative emotions. Your lost dream is representing how you value yourself, how you feel about yourself. You are the only one that can help you. Nobody is going to do it for you. Be strong, be willing, and work hard to make the changes that our needed.

If you are yelling for help in your dream about being lost, this can suggest that you are looking for help in your waking life. Are you scared to ask for help? Do you have anyone that can help you? If you feel that you don't, try to reach out to your parents, family, friends, co-workers, or neighbors. Your lost dream doesn't suggest what kind of help that is needed, but it does suggest that help is needed to resolve any issues. Pride can be a big factor in asking for help. Don't let your self-pride get in the way. We all need help at one time or another.


If you have lost a particular item in your dream, this can represent the same actual item that was lost in your waking life. It is not uncommon to have such a dream. If you lost money the day before, it would be common to have a dream about losing money. Dreams about losing something can also suggest that there may be a specific item lost. It is possible that you may not even be aware that it is missing. Dreams about losing something can also suggest that something has been misplaced in our waking life. You may want to do a count on your items. However, this dream can also be your fears of losing an item. Many men and women have items that are very valuable to them. It is possible that your lose dream is simply brought on by your worries of losing that specific item.

Dreams about losing something can also symbolize significant changes that are coming in our waking life. It is possible that your dream is warning you of such changes. These significant changes may have already occurred as well. Dreams about losing items also represent distractions in our waking life. As you already know, when we are distracted and busy, this is the time that most items are lost or misplaced. Your lose dream may portray that you have too many things going on at once. You may need to take the time to organize your commitments and pay close attention to your property.

      Fascinating, the dreams of being lost or losing something. I surely would not want to have one of these types of dreams, as it would be pretty frightening for sure, to be lost in a dream. And I am sure it would be a great relief when I woke up!

      Voted up ++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper

      Thanks for all the info on interpreting dreams. Could you share info on the dreams where you are yelling for help but no one hears. Then part of what you are saying comes out loudly scaring family members who can hear you scream. I look forward to to reading all of these. Thanks again.
