― Connie Willis, Passage

When you are waiting for something, it can be exciting, frustrating, or both at the same time. You can’t help but get anxious when you know that there is an information or some item out there, but you don’t have it yet and have to wait for it to arrive.

COMMON DREAMS ABOUT MAIL AND MESSAGES

YOU ARE RECEIVING MAIL (OR MESSAGES)

When you dream of receiving mail, it may just be about something you are awaiting in your conscious hours. Perhaps you are anticipating some news, waiting for an answer to a question, or even money. And all that waiting is making you feel anxious. The dream may be a representation of the anxiety feeling you have regarding whatever it is you are expecting. 

It is often a pleasant experience to receive something. Were you pleased and happy with the content of your mail or message in your dream? If that is the case, this may be a sign that good things are coming your way. 

If your dream involves receiving a lot of messages repeatedly, this may be a reminder from your subconscious that there is something in your waking life that you are overlooking. You may not be getting the message, so make sure to consider if there is something you are ignoring that you need to pay attention to.

YOU ARE WAITING FOR MAIL (OR MESSAGES)

It is likely that you are waiting for something in your life if in your dream you are waiting for a mail. It can be money and you are desperate right now to make ends meet. It may also be an answer to a question, medical results, and so on. The anticipation of this is causing enough tension that it is manifesting into your dreams.

LOST MAIL (OR MESSAGES)

Did the mail in your dream got lost? This may be about you feeling as if you have missed out on something. If a person sends you something and it got lost, you have missed out on receiving it. And who knows, it may have been something trully amazing like an opportunity, a gift, money, a gift, or even a declaration of love.

If you send something to a certain person and it goes lost, they never receive it and you missed out on their response. It is possible that you are trying to communicate with someone, and you really want their opinion, an acknowledgement or some sort of reciprocation.

If they never receive the message, then you both lose out on something that may be important to both of you. This dream may likely signify frustration or disappointment.
