6 interpretation of dreams about a box
Dream about seeing a tightly packed box
A tightly packed box that is hard to open, is a sign that you have commitment issues.
Showing your true feelings is difficult for you as you are afraid of getting hurt. You guard your heart for others which is why you unintentionally distanced yourself from a lot of people. You feel like even the closes people to you don’t really understand you. This doesn’t mean that you are pretending to be someone else, it simply means that you are limiting yourself when it comes to openly interacting with others. This is why some people think you are cold-hearted even though you are very sensitive and emotional deep inside.
On the other hand, if in your dream you tried to open a tightly packed box, it can mean that someone you know is reserved and distant. Trying to get them to open up can be challenging but you care about them so you are making a great effort in order to find out what is troubling them. If they refuse help and are hurting you with their behavior you should let them be and move on.
Dream about receiving a large box
If you saw a large box in a dream, that means you will finally hear some big news important to you. If you are waiting for someone to tell you something right now, or you are waiting for something important to happen, know that you will soon find out. A large box is symbolizing good news, success, and happiness. Something good will happen to you and you will finally be fully satisfied with your life. This dream is most likely a symbol of financial success and might represent a promotion at work, so work hard and don’t give up because it will pay off.

You value yourself and your work and don’t let the material things dictate your mood.
A small box can also represent the bond you share with your friends. You keep a small circle of friends and you care about them deeply. You consider them a real treasure and someone you can talk to. It is better to be surrounded by a few friends who really care about you than having dozens of acquaintances. This dream is telling you to appreciate these friends because losing them would be really painful for you.
Dream of an open box
Dreaming of an open box indicates a serious, deep conversation. You will have a meaningful conversation with someone important to you. This conversation will provide many answers to big questions.

It is the right time to express your emotions and be honest about it.
An open box is a symbol of the absence of truth. There might be something you are afraid to talk about. Perhaps there is a secret crush you need to admit to someone so don’t be afraid and speak up.
Dream of an empty box
Seeing an empty box in your dreams means that there is nothing else to expect from someone you know.

Sometimes, you need to go out and meet new people, and sometimes you need to simply try to work on yourself in order to be satisfied.
A dream about an empty box is a symbol of loneliness and emptiness. If you feel lonely when you are with your friends, then it is better to stay at home and enjoy your own company.
Dream of a nicely wrapped box
