If you’ve been dreaming of moving and you can’t shake the feeling that it means something more, you may want to keep reading…

Do Dreams Suggest Something Bigger?

If you don’t have a household move or relocation planned in your near future, a recurring dream about moving may have you scratching your head while you sip your morning coffee. If dreaming about moving is making you feel unsettled, knowing the potential explanation may put you at ease. 

Dreams About Packing And Moving

Dreams About Packing Boxes and Preparing to Move 

If your dreams are filled with images of you or someone you know packing boxes and preparing to move out of your home, it’s worth asking yourself what recent changes have occurred during this period of your life. Are you switching careers, ending a relationship or pivoting in your personal life? If so, your subconscious is reaffirming these changes and signaling that things are about to shift. 

Dreams About Packing for a Vacation 

If you’re dreaming about packing to travel for vacation, this type of dream likely represents some anticipation of things you need to organize before your departure. If you don’t have a trip on the horizon, this dream may be your subconscious alerting you to changes that will be happening in your life soon. It may be a good sign that you are ready to move forward and leave things that are no longer serving you. 

Dreams About Packing Personal Items

Dreams about packing your personal items can signify that you’re headed down the right track. This positive interpretation suggests that you’re ready for long term shifts ahead and that you’re able to trust your own instinct knowing you’re making the right decision. 

Dreams About Moving Out

You’re Afraid of Change

Maybe you’re comfortable and safe at home, yet can’t shake recurring dreams of moving out. If you’re happy where you are in your waking life, why does moving seem to be dominating your subconscious? In this case, you might be experiencing a fear of change. If things are shifting, even in small ways in your current routine or lifestyle, these moving dreams could signify your natural resistance to shaking things up. 

You Need or are Craving Change 

Dreams about moving out may also mean you’re not ready to deal with a disruption to normality or are avoiding something in your “real life.” Your dreams are nudging you toward a transition and perhaps there’s something you want to change or break free from. Now’s a good time to ask yourself if anything is holding you back.
