What does it mean when you dream about being carried or carrying something?

If one is being carried in a dream, it can indicate nurturance or a sense of dependence. Alternatively, perhaps we are simply being “carried away” by some enthusiasm. If we are carrying something, it can represent an emotion, as in the expression “carrying a grudge.” We also talk about “carrying the day,” “carrying the ball,” or “carrying a torch” for someone.

carry

[′kar·ē]
(mathematics)
An arithmetic operation that occurs in the course of addition when the sum of the digits in a given position equals or exceeds the base of the number system; a multiple m of the base is subtracted from this sum so that the remainder is less than the base, and the number m is then added to the next-higher-order digit.
