Dream symbol Subway shaft


underground, secret, hide, dark, oppression, sinister

The subway stands for subway railroad and this railroad, as the name suggests, travels largely on a network of rails underground, underground. It serves as a perfect, uncomplicated and, above all, fast means of transportation in large cities with millions of inhabitants, instead of standing in traffic jams in dense traffic chaos.

However, there are people who would not enter a subway, for whom it is an oppressive feeling to travel through a dark and narrow tunnel and to be crammed into a carriage with thousands of people. For people with claustrophobia, it is certainly a horror to be squeezed into crowds of people with almost no air to breathe. Even if no such fears are present, there is something dark and eerie about a subway shaft that can be reflected in our dreams.

General dream interpretation

If one feels an oppressive feeling when entering a subway shaft, this illustrates a fear of the dreamer. Many people fear or feel constricted when there is an impression that they cannot escape a certain situation. This fear could be revealed when sitting in a subway and entering a dark subway shaft with other people. If such an image also appears in the dream, it indicates a real fear from the dreamer's real life. On the other hand, this dream symbol can also be an indication that the dreamer is currently in a situation full of uncertainty and insecurity . Perhaps the person is plagued by worries about the future or hopeless outlook about a certain circumstance is expressed through it.

If one sees a subway coming out of the shaft in a dream, this represents on a general dream interpretation level, a rather negative statement, which announces a health slump or a change on a professional level, where one has to put in a lot of effort.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychology, going into a "subway shaft" at the dream level, symbolizes the descent into one's subconscious. Thus, this dream symbol illustrates the desire to pay more attention to the aspects of the unconscious. For a detailed dream interpretation it is of importance how one experiences the entering into the dark shaft in the dream. Is one afraid of the darkness inside? Or is the speed of going there an abomination, then this expresses that the person is afraid of the confrontation with the depths of his soul.

This black and uncertain of a subway shaft serves as a metaphor for the uncertain that lies hidden in the subconscious. Whether the dreamer has the willingness and dares to take a look inside or he is afraid of what he might discover lies in the respective feeling of the dreamer in response. This is an important learning process for the dreamer and he might get more understanding about his inner world and gain the realization of what he is blocking his own way.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual dream interpretation, the subway shaft serves as an encouragement to the dreamer to dive into the depths of his spiritual being fearlessly and full of confidence and in loving attentiveness.
