Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Cargo is connected with a few elements in the dream world. It is associated with travel and transportation.

More importantly, in our dreams cargo can refer to the baggage we carry in our own lives. People who dream of cargo sometimes look too far into the past when they really should be concerned about the future.

In your dream you may have

  • Been in an airplane or another form of transportation and been seated by the cargo.
  • Been in a cargo plane or cargo ship.
  • Brought cargo with you somewhere.
  • Seen a large amount of cargo in a strange place.
  • Used the word cargo in conversation.
  • Felt like you needed to bring cargo somewhere.
  • Left cargo behind somewhere.
  • Moved and forgotten to bring your cargo.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You left the cargo behind.
  • You did not feel weighed down by the cargo.

Detailed dream interpretation

To “carry around baggage” usually means that you have come away from past experiences without moving on to more important matters. You hold on to the past and refuse to let go and allow your life to take its proper course. Cargo in a dream can be closely associated with this topic. Since cargo is usually even heavier and more numerous than baggage in real life, a dream about cargo can involve very deep, traumatic, and emotional past events in your life.

If you are seated near cargo on a plane or in another form of transportation and the cargo does not belong to you, then you are thinking about past events. This is probably a healthy way to reflect. Everybody thinks about the past every once in a while. There is a healthy way to do this and an unhealthy way. Since you are merely noticing the cargo in your dream, and not physically holding on to it, then your subconscious is simply reminding you the past exists. It is good to acknowledge this fact, as long as you can move on from it.

If you bring the cargo onto the plane or other vehicle, you are carrying some baggage with you in a more unhealthy manner. You think too much about the past, when you should really be focused on the future. Something is holding you back from being all that you can be, and your subconscious is reminding you that there is more out there.

If you have cargo in your dream, then you have metaphorical cargo in your life. Can you do more to let go of this? You should not stop yourself from, for example, entering into relationships just because past relationships went wrong. Perhaps you are holding yourself back from your dreams because a job attempt failed or your schoolwork was unsuccessful. This logic does not make sense. You have to go after something before you can know if it will work.

If the cargo in your dream gets left behind, then you are slowly letting go of the baggage in your past. Good for you! Having “cargo” in your life just adds negativity and does not let you experience things for yourself. Letting go of your past adds mystery back into your life and makes things much more fun.

If you forgot your cargo, then you may be hiding a traumatic experience from your past that is just beginning to resurface. It is important that you address this, so you may benefit from speaking with a counselor to uncover your past.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Past events.
  • Traumatic experiences.
  • Awareness and communications.
  • Spiritual and emotional healing.
