Dreaming of packing a suitcase is very common because at some level, we are aware of how our identity must undergo change as we grow. Since Clothing is associated with the Persona, we often dream of packing and unpacking when we are releasing an old identity or trying on a new one. The dream of rushing to the airport symbolizes changes in aspirations and ambitions and our feelings about achieving those aspirations in terms of life stages. The suitcase and the idea of baggage can portray old ways of being that we might need to discard and how we feel an urgency to carry 'our costume or mask' into every new situation. Not being able to find something related to packing can be a message that you are overly identifying with only one role, when your greater needs might be sacrificed because of it.
