A dream about receiving a parcel points to things like anticipation, surprise, or unexpected gains. Of course, dream interpretations are seldom that simple.

It could represent a new opportunity or a gift of knowledge or experience coming your way.

Alternatively, dreaming about sending a parcel suggests you are trying to communicate or convey a message to someone. It could also symbolize letting go of a burden or sharing responsibilities. Both of these dreams involve exchange, indicating a need for communication or connection in your waking life.

A parcel is a somewhat rich and colorful dream image to interpret with any certainty. To really know for sure, I would need to take a deeper dive into the dreamer's life and circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of receiving a parcel may symbolize the unconscious acceptance of repressed emotions or unresolved issues, a Freudian concept known as the "return of the repressed".

But a parcel can say quite a few things — It suggests an anticipation of integrating these aspects into your conscious self. Conversely, dreaming of sending a parcel could represent the act of projection, another Freudian concept, where one unconsciously transfers one's own attributes, thoughts, or emotions to another. This dream might indicate an attempt to distance oneself from certain aspects of one's psyche. Both of these dreams, indeed, denote a form of communication, but not merely with others, rather a dialogue with one's own unconscious self.

Dreaming of receiving a parcel can symbolize divine blessings or spiritual insights being delivered to you. It's a sign of spiritual growth and enlightenment, a message from the divine that you are on the right path. Conversely, dreaming of sending a parcel can represent your desire to share your spiritual wisdom or blessings with others. It signifies your role as a spiritual guide or mentor. Both of these dreams suggest a spiritual exchange, indicating a deep connection with the divine and a call to serve others in their spiritual journey.
