A dream about someone being
absent, or of the absence of something one would expect to find,
indicates that the unexpected may happen. We may be looking for
something which we have already lost. Our feelings about the absence
(e.g. fear or anger) may also be important. A child experiences a strong
sense of loss when mother is first absent from his perceived
environment, and this can cause extreme distress.
We are in a situation where we
may suffer loss or where we may reject something we need. The type of
dream where we are in
a familiar environment, but a much-loved article or person is missing,
suggests we may have a feeling of impermanence.
To experience an absence, or
sense of nothingness suggests the Void.
