Immobility in the spiritual sense is dynamic stillness.
It is the unconditioned state, or the self, liberated from the physical. In sanskrit this is known as pratyhara – withdrawal from the external world into the interior self.
Psychological / emotional perspective: To be immobilized in a dream usually indicates that we have created circumstances around us which are now beginning to trap us. Often such a dream comes when we are facing the darker side of ourselves – that which could be called evil.
A superhuman effort needs to be made to overcome what is holding us down.
Material aspects: Immobility in a dream can be extremely frightening.
A feeling of oppression and of not being able to move usually indicates that we need to sit still and be immobile within our ordinary everyday lives. We need to achieve a kind of stillness which is foreign to most people, and therefore initially frightening, while later on it can be a state of peace and tranquility.
A dream that one is immobile can symbolize an inner inflexibility, especially with regard to resolving one’s problems. It can also mean that the dreamer feels trapped. People afflicted with sleep paralysis sometimes dream they are immobile or unable to run, but such dreams do not necessarily have deeper psychological meanings.

3- The Unconditioned State, the Liberated Self. Immobility in this sense is dynamic stillness.
In general, this is an anxious dream in which the dreamer tries to move and is unable to. This nightmare could originate from a physiological problem or an uncomfortable position of some body part.
If this is not the case, the dream reflects a real situation in which immobility—whether spiritual or intellectual—is the fruit of an inferiority complex or low self esteem. In this case, you must study the causes to get to the bottom of the problem and find an adequate solution. When the dream does not generate anxiety, but rather tranquility, then it is interpreted as a sign of physical or mental exhaustion. In this case, it warns of the immediate need for a break.

Dreaming Lens: Were you stuck in quicksand? Was someone else in the quicksand? Were you attempting to save someone or yourself from sliding deeper into quicksand? Was someone trying to save you? Did you successfully avoid falling into quicksand? What environment was the quicksand in?
Personal Focus: Quicksand is Earth and water in a treacherous combination whereby the water is abundant and the makeup of the Earth is such that the water is not readily absorbed. The result is land that appears solid but is anything but, and stepping into it can be dangerous‚Äîeven deadly. If you or someone else is stuck in quicksand in a dream, it may be reflecting something in your life that is causing you to be stuck and this stuckness may be putting you in some sort of danger.
Any time water is present with regard to a symbol, issues of emotionality are in play. Since quicksand‚Äôs water content is essentially imperceptible until you find yourself engulfed in it, your interpretation should reflect this sense of being initially unaware of the danger and the astonishment of discovering that you are suddenly in peril. In this way, the emotionality of the situation inspiring the dream may not be readily apparent. However, once you are immersed in it, there is enough feeling and confusion to drag you down into immobility and overwhelm. This symbol in a dream may be an indication that there are emotional issues that you have not been aware of up until this point. Having been stopped in your tracks by these issues, you are being forced to go deeper (hence sinking into the quicksand) in order to deal with the matter(s) at hand.
If you are the one that is stuck in the quicksand, look to where you may be being brought down by situations in your life, especially where emotional issues need more attention. If someone else is challenged by quicksand, use them as a Character Aspect to identify what elements of your personality are causing you to be stuck. Remember that this image can pertain to any number of dream images that involve obstacles to moving on foot, from cement, to unknown substances or invisible forces.
