The chest is where the heart is and often refers to your emotions, or your love for somebody or something. If the chest is afflicted in your dream then you may be going through a heart-ache or are losing your feelings toward someone.

A chest such as a treasure chest symbolizes the place within your psyche where you store treasured memories or beliefs that are valuable to you. It may also symbolize something you have recently discovered that could prove to be valuable in your life like a new talent or skill.
