Cave in Dreams

Dreaming of a cave is a meaning of being potentially stuck or lost. A cave offers little to no light so if one dreams of a cave, this is perhaps a sign that you are within that cave. You search and try to find your way out, but it is a difficult task. There is little hope, as it requires someone who has been in the cave before and knows their way around to navigate through it and help guide you to safety. A cave offers concealment and protection from the rest of the world. This can represent your yearning to hide yourself away until you are ready to come out and face others.

  1. I dreampt i was in a cave but wasn’t dark. It was daytime and my mom was in there waiting for someone to get a boulder to trap me there. but no one came. I wated to run out but couldn’t cause she was there for some reason. All that was in there was a black flat-screen tv and a wii remote. She told me that i had to stay there and i didn’t know why.

  2. I have recurring dreams about different houses. I’m often taking someone to show them their room, or telling my children where they can sleep. Typically the houses are unusual, but they all have lots of beds in them, however small the house is. I never know the houses very well, and am often discovering new rooms, or floors. The houses are often quite empty except for lots of beds.

    I also dream about a house with a strange basement. I’m frightened of it, and when I’ve been down there I can’t find the end. It changes from a multi room empty basement into a strange cave-like place, with no obvious end. There has been water and lava leading down a steep chasm, but I’m only ever looking down it, so I don’t know what’s down there.

    I sometimes find myself sat in the hallway or entrance to the house, sitting at the bottom of the staircase up to the bedrooms. I’m always anxious about something, or hiding the weird basement.

    The house is usually empty, except for me.

  3. I recently find out that the father of my son is cheating on me at night when im sleeping I saw the girl his cheating with walking with me on a cave suddenly she went the other way but when I followed her I never find her and I never find my way out

  4. I too had a dream a few nights ago about Caves too, Keara! In the cave dream, I had all of my hoarded junk, in different parts of the cave, all scattered around through the cave, like some crazy hoarder lady, and others were helping me move all of my junk out of those caves, stuff I didn’t even know I actually had anymore, in the dream, a few nights ago, and it was like some cave dig or something like that. I also obviously had an underground apartment/living place, in that underground cave dream, too, that I had totally forgotten about. (I guess the dream was about rediscovering/discovering another time and place/another part of my life, I was not living anymore, maybe?)

    1. Hi Alissa,

      I’ve had that dream many times. I think it means that you have a lot of emotional baggage that needs to be unpacked/analysed so that you can deal with it and leave it behind. The underground Apartment relates to aspects of yourself that you have not explored and are laying dormant. These could be skills you have that you are not making use of.


  5. This is not my continual dream. My parents divorced over ten years ago, I ve been out of work, for over a year, and now my ill mother has been stuck in my own home, not invited, for the last 6 or so months, on and off.
    I keep having the dream , of the house, and/or other building, with the center floor caved in, it can be an upkept house, or an old decrept hunk of junk. You just can’t walk on that part of the floor, or near it, unless you want to fall down deeper.
    I was a psychology major, but never finished my degree,,,
    I probably already have answered my own question,
    but does not, anyone, have this type of dream, of intensity, magnatode,,,
    Please, any comment, even rude ones, is appreciated,
    The Wulf,
    Thanks ,,

    1. Hi Wulfgar

      I am a counsellor who is interested in dream analysis which I think holds the key to many of our problems in life. The house normally represents ourselves in dreams so I get the impression that your parent’s divorce has greatly affected your core (centre). It is so painful that you cannot even address the problem through analysis for the fear of “falling down deeper”. This is the fear of the subconscious and painful memories that you prefer not to think about. I think you know that you do need to “repair your house” before you can go forward and finish your degree. All the best, Jenny

  6. I had a dream that my sister and i were inside a cave. The cave looked like the cave in the childrens story of Ali babba and 40 thieves. It was above ground and had a secret entrance. To open it i pulled on a stone and the face of the cave opened to reveal a door. Once inside the cave had rooms. My sister and i had a room with our jewellery and possesions inside.What does this dream mean?

    1. Im definitely no expert at dreams or caves but years past sometimes people were buried in small caves so it probably signifies the afterlife you and your sister will be safe, possessions probably represent all the good things of your lives

  7. I keep having these recurring dreams about me being inside this crowed cave full of people and a mass flood comes in and wipes most of the people out but only a select few survive.
