Dreaming about traveling and its meaning
Not only personal projects and goals to achieve , but also an inner journey , in a perspective that includes birth, growth and death. Dreaming of traveling represents a metaphor of life, of the internal process that the subject is carrying out, of the objectives that he sets for himself and that, at the same time, may not be completely clear and defined for himself.
Wanting to break with the usual daily desire to change and break with conventional patterns, dreaming of traveling is all of this. But also, in a more circumscribed vision, the symbol of small obstacles to overcome, real trips to make and real countries to visit, or a family outing to take the “journey” to maturity.
Dreaming of traveling can convey positive but also negative emotions, and the interpretation of this image is closely linked to the path to follow, the unexpected events that may occur, the possible travel companions and the means used.
We will deal with all this in the following paragraphs.
Meaning of dreaming about traveling
Dreaming of traveling is an image with many meanings, linked, as we have just mentioned, to the different situations that can be prefigured and to the different feelings that accompany each dream vision. Here are the most recurring scenarios:
Dreaming of traveling alone is an image that lends itself to a double interpretation. The first is linked to an intense loneliness of the dreamer who, for this reason, wants support, help. The second, on the other hand, is to be connected to a need, that of clarifying ideas and getting away from “everything and everyone”, especially after a period of strong stress.
Dreaming of traveling in company means a good understanding with friends , and also a strong organizational capacity . It can also be the symbol of an important step that is about to be taken , and in which the dreamer wants to involve people important to him.
Dreaming of traveling with friends is a very frequent image, and it shows that the dreamer knows people whom he can trust and who are compatible with him.
Dreaming of traveling without a suitcase symbolizes a non-definite departure , the uncertainty related to starting or not, staying or not staying. This is the result of the difficulties experienced by the dreamer at the time, which are obviously reflected in the dream. The image, however, can also have a positive meaning: not having the suitcase as a symbol of freedom , of emancipation .
Dreaming of traveling without a ticket indicates that the dreamer’s expectations, his goals, are too difficult to meet.
