The theme of abandonment in dreams is a very common one. Many dream experts will tell you that the notion of abandonment is a notion associated more with a feeling, than with an actual event. If you are feeling abandoned in your dream, there are several other factors you need to analyse. Who are you feeling abandoned by? Very little of the time are you the one that performs the act of abandonment in your dream. If this symbol does occur where you are the one engaging in the abandonment, the analysis is easier than you might think. Something in your life needs to go and your dream content is telling you this as subtly as possible. Sometimes we feel liberated when we abandon something or “let go”. If you are making acts of abandonment in your dream then look to the other symbols in your dream to help define where and what needs to be abandoned or let go in your life.
If you are feeling abandoned by a person in your dream, the message you need to examine is who do you feel is letting you down right now? Maybe you feel like someone is going to let you go. Or perhaps you just have this all over basic fear, and have no reason to justify it. Your dream could be suggesting that you have abandonment issues. If you are in a perfectly content relationship with no boats rocking right now, talk it out with your partner. They may feel they see a light bulb over their heads as this may help them understand you better. When trying to decipher this key dream symbol, examine who else is in your dream, and what other feelings you associate with this symbol, whether they are good or bad. Good abandonment feelings will show you exactly what you need to rid of in your life to experience the freedom and liberation you will feel in your dream during that moment.
