The box is something that you can store things in, and can be associated with the idea of 'baggage.' It can also symbolize the type of packaging that gifts come in. Opening a box can represent the unknown and can offer a message about opening up to either giving or receiving. The box can personify you in terms of being 'boxed in,' feeling enclosed or how you can turn within to discover the gifts that come through insight or inspiration. In some cases the box is also associated with the womb, female genitals or ideas associated with mother.
