In the Freudian perspective, a locket in a dream may symbolize the unconscious desire to safeguard one's ego from the intrusion of repressed emotions or traumatic memories.

Dream concepts like a locket can be multilayered, however. If you've dreamed of giving a locket, it could signify your subconscious attempt to transfer or project these repressed elements onto another person. Conversely, receiving a locket may indicate your unconscious acceptance of another's projected emotions or memories. This dream scenario may be thought of as a manifestation of the psychoanalytic concept of transference and countertransference, where the dreamer either displaces their emotional responses onto another or absorbs the emotional responses of others.0

Dreaming about a locket or exchanging one is a spiritual symbol of the heart's sacred chamber, where divine love and wisdom are stored. If you've dreamt of a locket, it signifies your soul's journey to unlock these divine aspects within you. Giving a locket in a dream represents your readiness to share your spiritual wisdom or love, suggesting a deep connection with the recipient. Receiving a locket, conversely, signifies that you are being entrusted with someone's spiritual wisdom or love, a divine gift that should be cherished. This dream scenario is a spiritual reminder of the interconnectedness of all souls and the divine love and wisdom that binds us all.
