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. (See also Obstacles.)
An activity you are participating in is producing a feeling of judgment, whether of another person or yourself. This may be draining you of important life energy. There is courage needed to pull yourself free from the influences that are keeping you in this negative vortex of attraction.
To dream of pulling another person or yourself from quicksand is alerting you that you can turn around your situation now.

3- Spiritual quicksand suggests a situation where we may be on insecure ground insofar as our beliefs are concerned.
If you are unable to overcome it, you will be involved in overwhelming misfortunes.
