Example: ‘In last night’s dream the baby I dream about incessantly had been locked in a suitcase but was quite unscathed when taken out, except that it was very dirty, but still not crying. I do not have any memories in connection with these babies and the only feelings I have are those of remorse that I have neglected the baby. I have had four children of my own, none of whom were ever neglected in this way’ (Mrs C). Mrs C uses the suitcase in at least two ways. One is her womb, or reproductive ability. Although she has had four children, this does not stop her unconsciously desiring more.
The second is what ‘luggage’—emotional feelings, urges, thoughts—she carries.
Generally, it depicts the womb, what one carries inside oneself, such as longings, attitudes, fears; how we see ourself socially—the luggage might be a sign of status, how we rate ourself; also a symbol of independence or going somewhere.
