Symbolic of being surrounded by evil or in need of God’s light, Joel 2:2
Vision: Dreaming about being “in the dark” is a sign that you feel insecure at work and m life m general. You can’t quite figure something out, can’t understand it.
If you are in a totally dark night, you are afraid of dying—and living—and you need advice from an objective person. Seeing a small light: you are distressed, but help is on the way. Being in a cave: you are unconsciously afraid of being attacked. Being in a dark closet: you recognize somebody’s hidden intentions just in time to prevent the person from carrying them out. See Night.
Depth Psychology: Dreaming about darkness always refers to an emotionally dangerous situation or one that is unresolved. This may have to do with a specific experience widi other people or yourself. Try to shed some light on the situation. Being in a dark passage: you are feeling unprotected from the intensity of others and yourself. It is a test: you need to prove yourself in order to come back into the light. Sometimes such a dream also suggests that you seek expert advice.
If you dream that you are stumbling around and groping your way about in a dark room or building this is an omen that you do not have enough information about a person, place, or thing to make a clear decision.
If you find the light switch, you will meet with success after acquiring understanding.

(Atheism; Ignorance; Night; Obscurity) In a dream, darkness means straying from God’s path, being lost, committing an error, erring, confusion and perplexity.
If one walks out of darkness into light in his dream, it means salvation, safety, guidance, repentance from sin or release from prison. Darkness in a dream also represents an oppressor. Thus, walking into a dark place in a dream means being unjust. Obscurity in a dream means the darkness of one’s heart or blindness. It also could mean loneliness, keeping to oneself or hiding from people. (Also see Injustice; Night)
Well-known symbol for our shadow, where a shadow depicts something invisible. Fear of people, emotions, thoughts, actions, and situations we don’t understand, since they are in the dark. Ambiguous premonition; not knowing; secrets. Walking into your own darkness, more awareness is called for.
The task almost always is to become more aware (Light), to shed light on something intellectually, or to deal more consciously with the unknown. Your own shadow is now visible, which is great progress and brings freedom. There are also “light shadows”—Angel and Fairy—but they are seldom addressed in dreams.
Also, do not lose sight of your path in the dark.
If you dream you cannot find someone in the darkness, you need to keep your temper in better control in real life.
To dream that you are lost in the darkness represents feelings of insecurity or sadness.
If you are groping around in the darkness in your dream, you are having trouble making a decision because you don’t have enough information. Do your research and do not rush into a choice.
