The underground normally symbolizes the subconscious. Things that are covered, interred, or that emerge from the ground represent qualities that come from the deepest part of your personality. It could be a positive or negative dream. Digging in the ground could be frightening, but sometimes it is useful in order to know secrets and hidden truths that you would otherwise miss. Further, exiting an underground tunnel and reaching the light represents a triumph over adversity. To interpret this dream it is important to pay attention to the sensations that you feel, and to the events that occur therein.

A dream that takes place underground or under the ocean can be a symbol of the journey into the unconscious and lead to the discovery of unknown parts of yourself.

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.

Going Underground

If you dream of being underground, this may suggest a desire for personal transformation—the death of the old to make way for the new. 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. ... going underground dream meaning

Underground Granary

(Granary; Pantry; Storrage room; Subterranean storehouse) An underground grain storage house in a dream represents a caring mother, a single parent or a foster mother. This interpretation comes from the example of a fetus in his mother’s womb and its dependence on her to supply the necessary nourishment. Once the stored food is consumed, then it is necessary to depend on a new source. If one sees an underground granary demolished or filled with dirt in the dream, and if his mother is sick, it means that she may die from her illness. Ifone’s wife is pregnant, it means that she will soon deliver her infant. A demolished underground granary in a dream means finding a buyer for one’s grains, and the dirt that fills the storehouse in the dream represents money. If the stored grain turns into dirt in a dream, it means that market prices will come down, or it could mean the loss of one’s investment. Seeing a granary filled with food in a dream means that one’s wife is pregnant. If a fire consumes the stored grain in a dream, it means rising prices. Ifone sees a granary filled with sugar or dates in a dream, it means that prices will stabilize and become attainable, while the type of food stored therein will be in limited supplies and consequently, its price will rise. If a sick person falls into an underground granary in a dream, it means his death, or drowning in the sea, or facing a highway robbery. As for one who is engaged in a fight, an underground granary in his dream represents a prison or a visit to a brothel. ... underground granary dream meaning
