To dream of losing something reflects a similar scenario in your waking life. Perhaps you have misplaced an important item, but have not yet realized it. Your dream may be a reminder to put some order in your life. You are swamped with work and this has been resulting in distractions. Do not lose focus and tackle a chore one at a time.
Figuratively, losing things in your dream may indicate missed opportunities, past relationships, or neglected facets of your life. You may properly gauge the emotional context and interpretation of your dream by paying attention to the item lost in your dream.
