Mailbox Dream Symbol


Mailbox – The mailbox is a symbol of messages. If you dream about a mailbox it means that there is something that you need to find out.

  1. In my dream, it is pitch dark out, I look at my feet and our family mailbox with the house # and last name is in the ground, upside down. What????

    I have the same dream, over and over for years. Checking the mail of my old childhood home. Or just looking at the mailbox. In the dream I open the mailbox and see lots of mail. Never open any of it. In the same dreams i dream of a hidden room next to the basement stairs, full of stuff covered up with plastic. I can see a couch, old things.

    I dreamt I was checking the mail at my current home. My mailbox was fancy and electronic. My neighbors all had regular mailboxes. I pulled a bunch of letters and junk mail out. I wonder what it could mean

  4. From time to time I have a dream where I find myself checking the mailbox in my childhood home where I grew up. This is a mailbox that is posted at the front door. Each time I show up the mailbox is full of letters and usually there is one or two and there from a person in my past. I never read them in my dreams it’s just me checking the mailbox and wondering how those letters could have gotten there if I no longer live there. The last time I had this dream there was someone at the door that I knew. I asked that person why this letter is coming to this mailbox. That person gave me a long explanation of the meeting that they had with the letter writer. That was the first time I had ever had an explanation as to why the letter came or where it come from.

    • I have this exact same recurring dream! I am checking the mailbox at my childhood home. It is a very large mailbox that is full of old mail.

      Wonder what it means?

      • Last night, I also dreamt that I was checking the mailbox of my childhood home. There were many letters, and a kind of parcel containing an object that I wasn’t able to identify. I asked my mother, and it seemed the object was in relation to writing or drawing.

  5. I dreamt of a mailbox and I opened it and it I pulled out a stack of 5 dollar notes there were a couple of hundred dollar notes at the bottom

  6. I dreamt that someone set something on fire and put it through my letter box. Not sure what it means! Can someone help please?

  7. I dreamed of driving a car, my two sisters and one friend were in it. Their friend was in the passenger seat and my two sisters were in the back seat. Before I started the car I asked my friend if she would drive my car since I didn’t have a license or a license plate. She had a license but she refused to drive it. So I start the car and i put it in reverse to back up and it almost hit the car behind me so then I put the car in drive and press on the gas and it almost hit the car in front of me. I back up again to get out of the cars that I sat in between and all of a sudden it starts going a little fast. I step on the breaks a little because I was about to pass a couple of stop signs, as I step on the breaks before getting to the stop signs the car wouldn’t stop quick enough. As it continues to speed i put two feet on the brakes so after that it starts speeding out of control like I’m in a car speeding contest still with my two feet on the brakes it would not slow down I was soooo scared of losing control and crashing but I refused to show that I was scared and then the dream fades out… What does my dream mean?

  8. Thank you for this. I have a recurrent dream of an old-fashioned combination mailbox in the lower level of a school. In this dream, I have forgotten about the existence of this mailbox for a very long time on and then remember it and go there. This last time I could not remember the combination so went around the back and had bags full of mail. And then also took a table with a phone attacked (I have NO idea about that!). Fascinating stuff.
