A bag can symbolize what you figuratively carry with you: memories, responsibilities, burdens, guilt, ideas about yourself, personality and character traits. Think along the lines of things from the past you bring with you while going forward in life.
Packing bags can symbolize preparing for something, getting ready. See: Baggage
A torn bag can indicate worries or problems tearing at you. It can symbolize fear of no longer being able to carry a load, or it can warn about losing important aspects of your past.
A torn money bag or purse can symbolize financial loss. An empty one can symbolize struggle, loss, an empty bank account or bankruptcy.
An empty bag can symbolize a feeling of emptiness. It can symbolize expecting something but not getting it, such as a promotion or phone call, or empty promise. You put in the faith or effort but don’t get the reward.
The stomach is a sort of bag, so an empty bag can symbolize hunger. Lungs, too, are comparable to bags. For example, a dream about bag full of liquid can symbolize heavy congestion.
A full bag can symbolize a full stomach, acquisition of material possessions, or any sort of abundance.
If something is “in the bag” it means it’s as good as done, such as when a sports team is ahead by so many points, the game is “in the bag,” and a dream shows it as putting a trophy into a bag. If you’re left holding the bag, it can symbolize an unwelcome responsibility.
A bag can symbolize a scrotum, and a tear or other sort of damage to it can symbolize injury to that area of the body or what it represents. See: Testicles

Here's a long one with layers of meaning to be decoded. It involves murder, if that tickles your fancy.
There is a music festival going on in my front yard. I am with my girlfriend and an ex-friend, who we treat as if she was still our friend. We are walking down the street and decide to go into my neighbor's house and spend the night there. There is only one room open, as if it were a motel. There is nothing in there except a large bed and TV placed in a cabinet. The three of us drop off our bags and go back outside to the festival. It is small, but enjoyable. I spot a group of 20-something year olds under a white tent. They are lounging without a care, surrounded by racks of water balloons. My girlfriend tells me to get a water balloon, so I go up to them. I ask and a woman agrees. She takes one off, then pops it into a large fancy bowl and hands it to me saying, "This is called Dragon Fire Bowl." A guy with her warns her, "Are you sure? Even a drop of that could-" Then he cuts off. The liquid is orange like pop. She encourages me to try some. It tastes amazing! I am addicted to it. I go back to my friends and we retire to the little room. I realized all too late that I finished the drink without sharing.
From here on, the dream cuts like scenes in a movie. It is night. Now I am in my real house watching a concert from my window. It is extravagant, with dancers and bright lights. Suddenly the people who gave me the drink appear in the next room. One of them asks, "Are you feeling ok?"
My dream cuts again. I am back in the small room, but no one is in there. I stand in the corner with blurry vision and a sick feeling. I figure I am just drunk, nothing to worry about. I realize it is really late at night. My brother and a couple of his friends bust in the room, loud, and probably drunk themselves. I mumble something about the drink and Nick is concerned I was poisoned. I assure him it was just pop. They leave and I vomit in my corner.
Next scene, I am still in the same room sitting on the bed with my grandfather. He came to fix the TV. He put on my favorite show, *Supernatural*. We tune in right as an angel is murdering a demon. My grandfather mentions how gruesome the show is. I don't think it's too bad. Suddenly my view becomes more entranced with the show until it is all I see. My view is on the dead demon, who is oozing pink blood from his neck. My sight is like a camera, panning back up to the angel's face. I am the angel. (If you care, the song "Academy Award" by Franz Ferdinand starts playing to set the eerie mood). I can tell I am older than I am in real life, maybe late twenties or early thirties. My hair was cut short and I am wearing nice clothing. With the blade in my hand, I ascend up the stairs. The mansion I am now in was under construction. Sheets hung over a grand window on the stair landing, but a bright white light was breaking through.
I make it to the stop of the long stairway. It is dark here and tinted with a blue filter. I enter a room. A grey pitbull is standing before me, guarding a cradle. The dog growls at me and I realize I am a threat. I move forward without fear and the dog whimpers away. I place my hand on the cradle railing and look down at the baby boy, but from my view I never actually saw the child. I raise my hand with the blade. The dog growls again. I snap my fingers and it rushed out of the room. Before I stab, my side vibrates. It is my phone. I check it and see my girlfriend texted me, "I thought we were going to go to therapy today."
I break from my murderous trance, dropping the blade and holding my spinning head. I realize that was my girlfriend's father downstairs I just killed and that is my son in the cradle. My mind is consumed with darkness, I realize how evil I am. My life is over. How could I do that to my girlfriend?! I seriously think all of this is real. I blink as hard as I can and wake up in a cold sweat.
What does all of that mean? I had this dream a while back, but it has stuck with me as clear as day.

I dreamt i died last night. It was so realistic, that when I woke up I was disappointed.
I dreamt I had a heart attack. Next thing that happened was I was walking down a long black hallway. A red demon in the distance started walking towards me. I told myself to not be afraid, and to stand up tall as to appear confident. The red demon faded and a white skeleton figure appeared. The white figured pointed to the right, which I followed. I was led to a large arena. It was poorly lit, and people were wondering all around looking very confused. Everyone was in human form. I remember thinking I wasn't sure if I made it to heaven, since this appeared to be a holding cell. I must say upfront that I'm an atheist, so during the dream I was thinking about what I had learned about death, not what I believed in. Although nothing made sense to me. Then numerous doors started to open around this holding cell, and a tall faceless figure pointed me to one of the doors for me to enter. Inside was a stadium looking format where thousands of people were walking around. I immediately took a seat just so I could watch everyone. It was dark but many people were carrying neon items that were scattered all over the floors. I choose to not pick up anything.
Everyone appeared to be very happy they were there, but I couldn't figure out why. I felt safe but not joyful like the others. I noticed these beige bags all over the ground and people were grabbing inside to get what was in the. Everything they pulled out was different, but it was always appealing. This was the first time I decided to try and take something. I put my hands in the bags and found something soft. There were tons of different things I could feel, but I really wanted what this soft item was. Eventually I was able to pull it out and it was a tiny beige puppy that fit in the palm of my hand. I woke up right after I made eye contact with the dog.
What's weird is when I woke up I started to cry. I was finally at peace in this dream and felt robbed it wasn't true. I can't stop thinking about being disappointed I'm still alive. I want to go back even though I don't understand where I was.
Side note: I've been very ill for a couple weeks and bed ridden. Not sure if that's why I dreamt this, but I've never had a dream like this one ever.

An Empty Blanket
I dreamt I was at a family reunion and kept trying to “hide” my baby but, the “baby” was just an empty blanket, and twice an empty bag of water (think like when you get a fish from the fair).
I’m not pregnant, don’t plan to be, and have no current children. I assumed a future miscarriage but, maybe there’s a less obvious meaning I’m missing. What do you think?

Sneezing blood and staining my shirt (pls help me interpret)
19F, USA. Ex and I don’t talk and I’m in a very happy relationship with my bf I’ve been dating for 1 year & 1/2. But I do think about my ex sometimes, but definitely NOT in that way. I just think about the past a lot in general.
I was friends with Jim Halpert and was hanging with the whole “The Office” cast. It was night and I sat near Jim and we were in some kind of hallway in a church. It was dim with blue lights. It felt like we were going to preform of some kind of musical or dance. I was talking to the whole cast like we were all friends, but across the room was my ex and his now gf with the cast of parks & rec. Me and him kept making eye contact but tbh I just felt curious and jealous he was there with me. I didn’t feel like I cared much about his gf.
I started to pick my nose and then I sneezed and a LOT of blood came out and stained my whole shirt. It looked like I killed someone. I believe it was a white shirt if that mattered, and I told Jim I was going to the rest room to change and had a whole bag already prepared to change. I put on a yellow shirt that was paired with a purple tennis skirt. I went back out and sat with Jim.

Mother introducing her naked daughter to me!
I had a dream where i was just fighting zombies in call of duty black ops 3 (iam inside the game) after a while everything turns into a blue glowing cube inside a back bag, my friend gave me the back bag with the glow coming out of it asking me to take it to his home.
I take and go up the stairs and everything is bright, clean smooth and beatiful but as i go up the stairs everything turns to shit! Place gets darker and stairs gets broken down!
I kept going up until i met the friend's father, he tells me that everything thing wrong going on is only in my head, it seemed true because he was going up some staircase that from my view was completely broken down! He was like going up Air from my prespective! SO i decided to just go up like nothing happened even if the staircase isn't there (due to being broken down) but i just ended up falling through the Air two floors down!
IT hurt so much i just sat there for a few mins and then got up and started going up the broken down stairs, it went so BAD that i had to do critical jumps in order to be able to go up!
Then i finally reach the floor where my friend's home is, the floor looked clean and beatiful just like the whole Place when i first entered it!
The friend's mother opens the door, takes the bag my friend gave me, thanks me then says "Say hello to my daughter *name of daughter*" then the daughter comes out fully naked! I just look at the ground out of embrassement and then they look at me and the mother says "Is this boy dumb or what?" in a mocking way! I just leave!
