Dreaming about the underground featuring in your dream is often a symbol of your hidden subconscious and what lies there.

Underground dreams have powerful meanings and they are different for everyone because everyone holds different things inside their subconscious mind. This can be mental, emotional, sexual, or spiritual.

Often, dreaming about the underground is a way of your subconscious releasing itself which it cannot do in waking life, for whatever reason.

Dreaming of Being Underground

If you dream of being or going underground it can suggest a desire for transformation on a personal level.

If in the dream you are being buried alive (which then transforms it into a nightmare) this may be pointing towards your individuality being suffocated in some way, either by others or by yourself. You may feel there is no way out in your waking life.

If you dream that someone is purposely burying you alive or trapping you underground, it could be your subconscious’ way of alerting you to someone in your waking life who has hostile feelings towards you.

Dreaming Of Exploring A Cave

This type of dream indicates you are becoming more intimate with your subconscious in a way that only dreams can allow.

In order to determine what type of personal exploration is being encouraged, look at the details and tone of the dream.

What are the feelings associated with your experience of the underground?

  • Are you fearful or excited?
  • Are you lost or just curious?
  • Are you seeing your way through it clearly via tunnels and light?

Dreaming About Being in a Tunnel or Mine

If you dream of walking through or crawling through a tunnel or mine it indicates that you are exploring what lies beneath the surface within you, such as feelings and thoughts you don’t pay attention to in waking life.

It is here that your subconscious feels able to freely express itself without the judgments or fears that prevail during your waking world.

Dreaming About a Light at The End of the Tunnel

If you dream that you are underground in darkness and you see light in the distance it is an indication that you will find inspiration in your waking life where it had been previously lacking.

The dream may be accompanied by feelings of hope - this is your subconscious’ way of letting you know that everything is going to be alright, so keep pushing through.
