Dream meaning: Dark, Darkness

Dark and DarknessThe womb; the unconscious;primal yearnings/urges (especially dark waters), hence the instincts; undeveloped potentiality out of which light (consciousness) arises; creativity; the cosmic nothingness out of which creation arose.
It can symbolize a stage of ignorance/unknowing, psychologically blind (in the dark) or hope (it’s always dark before dawn). Perhaps there is some issue to which you are not attending.

In mythology, darkness often symbolizes the underworld or death and is related to rebirth and to Persephone and her experiences. Dark locations or areas and black spots can symbolize death. If you are in dark tunnel but can see light, it may symbolize an actual birth memory, impending death, or simply that there is a way out of a current situation.

See tunnel, night, death.

    I was in the hospital and placed in an induced coma after taking a potentially life threatening combination of perscription drugs. My life was in the balance and there was a good chance I would die.

    I remember being in the dark. It was a kind of darkness I had never seen before. Pure blackness and it was cold. Very cold. Freezing cold. I was restrained, standing up, with my arms beside my head and unable to move. In the darkness was a man who looked familiar to me, like I had met him before and he was speaking to me. He was talking about how I had gotten there. He told me about passages and doors I had passed through and that we would be moving to different places often. At firs his demeanor was pleasant but would change throughout our conversation to anger. He would be calm and suddenly burst into a rage of anger. I can’t recall what he was angry about I just remember I didn’t want to be there.

    In the dark, behind the man, there was something. I couldn’t tell who or what it was but there was alot of them. They would peak out and I could see their eyes and then they would disappear. They were taunting me and it made me mad. I became more and more angry at being restrained and tormented. I was very angry and upset about my situation. The man became more hostile toward me and I began to yell and growl at him and the creatures behind him. I struggled to break free from my restaints but it was in vain. I opened my mouth and began to projectile vomit. I was doing it on purpose and trying to hit the creatures in the dark and familiar man who had been talking to me. I hit them over and over and then it all went black.

    When I eventually awoke I remember thinking I must have gone to hell or at least had a glimpse of what it would be like. I’m thankful to be alive and the chance to change my life so I never have to go back to that horrible place.

    I had a hysterectomy last June, and from then I’ve had a frighting dream about 10 times. I dream that someone is in my bedroom in the dark and I wake up sweating and scared.p>

    I dreamed that a golden figure like a lion was flying with incredible speed. It looked half solid and half air molecules. It opened its mouth and it took all the gold/light into itself. It became very dark around, everything was black, different shades of black, everything became sand and it was moving downward. Then it became fluid and looked like oil. Then I saw footsteps walking through it, but it seemed to be water on top, and solid on the bottom - invisible people walking through it and the water moved with the footsteps.

    I dreamed it was night and I was on a pond full of dark water and cocodiles were under the water. My dad had disappeared under the water and I got a call saying my boyfriend had gotten locked up forever. Any suggestions on what this means?

    I was so stupid to realize that the dream was a warning of My Grandpa’s death. Not the situation of my ex.

    My boyfriend told me he had a dream of him walking in a tunnel as his friends were holding me back and I was screaming and yelling for him. In reality what is going on is that he is locked up right now, hopefully there is a way out of it. He had this dream while being locked up. Those friends want him dead. I guess this dream means that too.
