Very commonly, you will find yourself searching for something in a dream – because searching or loss is often the first step toward transformation. Misplacing an item reveals your current insecurities surrounding what the symbol represents. If it is a purse or wallet, it can suggest financial insecurities. Looking for an heirloom or family treasure can signify your insecurities about your chance to pro-create. Searching for clothing can symbolize exploring a new identity, while searching for lost baggage can portray the idea that an old identity is no longer serving you. Searching is a theme when you are not acknowledging how you may be feeling unfulfilled in the present. See Clothing and Makeup and also, Purses, Wallets, Luggage, Jewels and Keys.
