So if you are digging in your dream, is there something you need to learn about your past? Or is there something you want to find out, a vital piece of information that will complete the picture? If you are uncovering an object or old bones, then you are probably becoming conscious of long buried memories and feelings from your past.
If you are trying to bury something, what are you trying to cover up or hide in waking life? Bear in mind the expressions associated with digging, too. Is someone having a dig at you in waking life? Did your dream reflect your entrenched, firmly held opinions? Or was your unconscious urging you to adopt a more down-to-earth approach? If you are a gardener, you will know that although the earth is the giver of sustenance, security and new life, each life cycle also has an end, so when earth figures in a dream, it may also indicate the end of a phase in life and the beginning of a new one
A dream about digging, watering or feeding the earth may therefore suggest your desire to begin a new phase. It could also depict your fear of unpalatable hidden truths being exposed in waking life. Anything growing from the earth in your dream shows something that has developed from the possibilities of your life, and who you are.
If your dream depicted you planting a seed, try to make a connection with your waking life. The dream seeds may refer to the planting of an intellectual or creative concept that has the potential to grow if placed in fertile ground and cared for. Then again, planting dreams may refer to your thoughts about starting a family. A dream of healthy crops may suggest that your waking ventures or family are flourishing.
If what you are taking from the earth is vegetables or things to eat, these are the fruits of your past efforts, and suggest benefits arising in your life. If, however, the earth in your dream is barren and nothing is growing, this could indicate that you are emotionally and physically exhausted by the demands of waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you were interested in or involved with a puppet show in your dream, this may be a warning that somebody is trying to manipulate you in waking life and pull your strings. Swings are an image of childhood freedom and may have a similar interpretation to dreams of flying.

If you experience the nightmare of being buried alive, do you feel that others are suffocating your individuality in waking life and there is no way out? If in your dream you suspect that someone has deliberately buried you alive, your unconscious may be trying to alert you to hidden hostility from that person towards you in waking life.
If you managed to escape, try to remember whether you stumbled across anything significant; this may hold the key to transforming your situation so you can step out of the darkness into daylight in waking life. To come up out of the earth or a grave suggests some kind of rebirth, new insights or a new period of your life. Being in a tunnel, cave, chamber or mine shows you exploring what is usually beneath the surface of your mind, such as unacknowledged insights or feelings. This is a journey into your unconscious. Remember the rules here are different to those in everyday life. Here you create your own environment, your own traps and freedom out of your own fears, hopes and desires.
If the dream hole was of your own making in the dream, what was its purpose? Freudians equate holes in dreams with vaginas, so—if you are a man— your dream may have been imbued with sexual innuendo. Whatever your sex, because the vagina leads to the womb it may be that you long to shut yourself away, or withdraw for a while from the unpleasantness of your waking life. On the other hand, your dream may be highlighting those of your ‘underground’ tastes or secret longings that are unexpressed in real life. There is another explanation for dreams about burrowing underground or entering tunnels and caverns. The tunnel is a symbol of transition and the bowels of the earth a symbol of the unconscious, so your dream may denote your search for some kind of transformation. What you saw or heard in the cavern or tunnel is therefore significant.
If you saw light or made your way to the end of the tunnel in your dream, the implication is that you will find the inspiration you need in waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you dream of cracking the shell in this way, this signifies that you have a great desire to learn the truth about a situation and will go to any lengths to find out what information might be hidden.
On the other hand, if you dream about eating shelled peanuts out of a jar, this indicates that you want to know the truth without having to work for it, and you might be satisfied with less than the total truth.
Do you see nuts scattered on the floor in your own house in a dream? This means that love and harmony in the family awaits you. For a man, such a dream prophesies major acquisitions, and not in vain, but necessary ones, the interpreter pleases.
Harvesting groundnut in a dream is a sign of profit, but not an easy one. And if you see in a dream how you dig up peanuts and peel them from the shell, this is a symbol of the fact that you will spend a lot of effort, nerves and energy doing the work, but you will receive huge dividends for this.
Eating peanuts without beer in a dream is a sign of excellent health, the Eastern interpreter predicts. But, if you want to know why you dream of eating salted peanuts with beer in the company of friends, then refer to the explanations of the Gypsy interpreter. According to his version, such a dream prophesies a decision in an urgent matter.
If you dreamed about sweet peanuts, remember what exactly the kernel was "shrouded" in in a dream for the correct interpretation. Here is how the dream books explain why such visions appears in a dream:
Something inviolable, which you will honor at all costs.
Respect for higher powers, both human and divine.
A place or situation within which you feel completely safe and unafraid.

If you are walking on clay, for example, this stresses the importance of resilience on your life’s path. The symbolism of grass in dreams may come from its green color, which is a symbol of renewal and revitalizing energy. According to Freudians, grass is a symbol of pubic hair. A dream of lying in the grass may express a simple desire for relaxation or, like other dreams of soft grass, sand, moss or water, a desire to return to the comfort and security of the mother’s womb.
If you were cutting grass in your dream, is there an aspect of your life that needs to be restricted or cut back on? If you were gathering grass to make hay, the dream may be urging you to make the most of a situation in waking life and to seize the day. See also Garden entry in PLACES

Alternatively, do you feel somehow soiled and grubby? If your dream depicted a pig happily rolling in the mud, do you need to take a more down-to-earth approach in waking life? If your dream depicted you being sucked into the ground or into mud, do you feel caught in a situation that is draining you and about which you feel powerless to do anything? Ask yourself who, or what, the mud or sand in the dream may have represented. Is anyone, or anything, in your life dragging you down? Or have you become a prisoner of your own inhibitions, so that you are stuck in the mud?
If you find yourself off the ground in your dream, this may suggest that you are losing connection with your roots of family or culture, or living in a state of mind that does not connect you with everyday reality. This lack of grounding may also be occasionally shown as being on a high building. Finally, if the earth is soft and difficult to walk on, you are probably finding your present life hard to deal with. Negative emotions are bogging you down. But if the earth is dry and firm, then you are feeling on firm ground as far as relationships and creativity are concerned. See also DISASTERS.... The Element Encyclopedia

To dream that you are in a mine signifies that you are getting to the bottom of a particular problem, and may have even reached its core. The journey you are prepared to take to understand yourself better might be symbolized if you find yourself traveling on the tube or the subway; the same is true of any dreams of tunnels, which generally indicate the need to explore your unconscious. Such dreams may also represent the birth canal and therefore the process of birth.
If there is light at the end of the tunnel, you are progressing positively but if something is blocking the tunnel, some past fear or experience is blocking your progress.... The Element Encyclopedia
