To dream of a hand written note represents feelings about yourself or someone else wishing to avoid being careless. A sense of importance about needing to avoid a problem or mistake. New insights you’ve learned and decided to “keep in mind” for later use. Feeling intelligent about to how avoid repeating a mistake based on observations you’ve made about a situation or person. Feeling that you will look stupid or crazy if you repeat behavior.
Negatively, a hand written note may reflect heightened sensitivity making a mistake you were aware of beforehand or a fear of repeating a mistake you made extra careful attention to avoid repeating.
To dream of losing a hand written note may reflect feelings about losing confidence in warning signs or insight into how to avoid repeating a mistake. Feeling embarrassed that you don’t know how to do something you were instructed to do. Feeling stupid that something you expected to be easy isn’t easy. Feeling unable to reverse the consequences of not listening to someone who gave you a serious warning.
Example: A young woman dreamed of being sent a hand written note from the ex-wife of her ex-boyfriend. In waking life she was beginning to observe and understand her ex-boyfriend’s behavior and why it was important to never bother trying to reconcile with him. The hand written note in the dream may have reflected her feelings about her observations about her ex being important to notice for later on in case he tried to come back to her.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of being given a hand written note and then losing it. In waking life she was dumped by her boyfriend because she didn’t listen to his prior warnings about stopping certain behavior. The lost hand written note may have reflected her feelings about feeling stupid for not listening to her boyfriend’s careful warnings to stop behaving in ways he didn’t like which ended up making him dump her.
