The movement towards spirituality often begins from a feeling of searching for something. Searching in a dream for something we have lost can suggest either that we need information from the past, or that we feel we have lost our identity. Searching also suggests more of a commitment to actually finding than just simply looking. To be searching in a dream is an attempt to find an answer to a problem. If we are searching for someone we may be conscious of our loneliness. If we are searching for something we may be aware of an unfulfilled need.
