Cave (cellar), Dream Interpretation


(see Darkness, Underground)

The subconscious or hidden nature within.

Archetypal: The womb of the earth—e.g., Earth as our mother who gave all humankind birth and nourishment. Also an emblem for a woman’s womb. In Hebrew tradition, Abraham was born in a sacred cave, as was the Persian savior Mithra.

Fears: If ?>ionsters or other terrible things lurk within the cave, this reveals unresolved phobias and apprehensions.

A retreat, sanctuary, or place of hiding. Many notable figures went to secluded areas to find themselves or the Divine. In this instance, what you seek is probably more intuitive in nature (see Desert).

Damp caves represent fertility.

An archetypal sanctuary eluding to humankind’s earliest dwelling places where communities began to form. Here the subconscious may be relating your need for a safe haven, or joining a friendly group within which you feel comfortable.

Dream Meanings of Versatile

The cellar most often represents the subconscious and those things we may have suppressed through an inability to handle them.

A basement can also highlight the power that is available to us provided we are willing to make use of it. Often associated with self-image and self-confidence, we may not have come to terms with our own charisma and personal power and prefer to keep it hidden.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

Example: ‘I know I have killed somebody and their body is walled up in the cellar.

The strange thing is I haven’t a clue who this person is. Various people visit my home and I am terrified the body will be discovered. In one of these recurring dreams the police actually investigate the dis­appearance of “the person’’ and go into the cellar. When I wake from these dreams I always have the most terrible guilty feeling’ (Mrs P L). Usually the things we have hidden from awareness in our unconscious.

The example shows how Mrs L has killed or repressed a pan of herself. We might kill’ ambition, love, sexual drive, and push them into our uncon­scious. But the basement or cellar is also the entrance to gen­eral memones, our biological unconscious’ functions, archetypal patterns of behaviour, subliminal or psychic im­pressions, the collective unconscious. Frequently the place we keep memories of traumatic events in our life. So a dark shape or intruder might emerge from downstairs*. Our dark deeds or guilty memories are also in the basement.

A snake in the cellar, cave: our psychobiological drive; the energy behind our growth and motivation which includes sex drive. This con­nects us with awareness of our evolution. Bad smell: emotions which could cause depression or illness. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The Way of Dreams and Visions

General Meaning: A season of obscurity but also of intimacy with the Lord. In a negative sense, a cave is a picture of trying to escape the pressures of life.

• Positive: Although it might not seem that a cave can be a positive place, it does speak of a place of being protected and hidden away. I remember the Lord giving me a vision once where he drew me to a cave.

• The cave was empty except for me and Him. He said that here He would teach me everything that I needed for the next phase of my spiritual walk.

For a season things would quiet down and I would not be involved with a lot of people, but that this was of Him.

• It was indeed one of the most precious times of my life where I came to know the Lord Jesus face to face at a new level. It was a time where He brought the Scriptures to life for me and gave me a new impartation of his love.

• So if you have a vision or dream of the Lord drawing you aside, this is a good thing. It speaks of a time of seclusion that is temporary. However it will be a time of much growth for you. Even Elijah experienced the still voice of the Lord in the cave.

• 1 Kings 19:9 And he came there to a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD [Yahweh] [came] to him, and he said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?

Negative:

It has been our experience in personal ministry to often see someone we pray for tied to a cave wall. This indicates that they have hidden themselves away from the real world, usually because of hurts in the past. I speak more of this under the symbol “Bars” • It also speaks of a place of hiding away from the stress and the pressures that are surrounding you.

The only way to overcome is to step out in the name of Jesus and to overcome..... The Way of Dreams and Visions
