The unconscious mind may be hinting to you that the time for “throwing out” unnecessary things is at hand. Letting go of clutter frees the mind and makes more room in the closet! The garbage in your dream could also represent those things from your past or in your life today that are not worth keeping or are literally rubbish. It has been said that “cleanliness is next to godliness, ” and there is something to that.
