An abyss stands in the dream as a warning signal or danger signal. To dream of an abyss, points to the fact that the dreaming recognises the so-called ‘barrel without ground’ or the emptiness in himself. This is an aspect of the stranger to whom every person must position himself sometime in the life. Behind the picture is hidden a risky underpinned which the dreaming has to concern without knowing what will come out, besides. Critical situations or life difficulties are symbolised by him. Indeed, one must look at the connection. The abyss also points to the fact that the dreaming resigns himself to contrast pairs as properly and wrong or well and nastily. Positively every form of the coping is by flying, leaping over, Durchsteigen etc. and indicates the overcoming of the difficulties. Negatively it is dizzy, before the abyss helplessly, is paralyzed, to have got a fright and to be afraid on helplessness, despondency and desperation points. The fall in the abyss stands for the despondent failure, for fear of life and capitulation before the danger. The following symbols rather often seem with similar meaning:
- The unconscious sees a danger which is given for that which is seen. (Aura of the misfortune.)
- Leading the way only up to the abyss and ends, means this one warning for the dreaming, – he should turn back.
- Quite near in an abyss stand often warns about a ‘fall’ in grief, worries and need if one maintains, for example, the present intentions.
- in an abyss can look mean that one looks in own unconscious and perceives, besides, things which one would not rather have recognised, – maybe the look in the abyss also announces the forthcoming dangers which can arise from own behaviour, action and wish. However, one may await the coming dangers courageously because one recognises them on time that one can make way to them and will master them.
- find A bridge about the abyss: One can bridge difficulties which open in the awake life before one.
- one holds on in the dream in a railing and saw – terrified – in an abyss (also tearing stream, fall brook, waterfall etc.), one lives just in a critical situation in which one can just still keep.
- Being the ground under the feet slimy or had the bridge tears, the problem is not solved yet, the load is not got through yet. A request more exactly to look in own sphere who could bring (or what) to one to case.
- Standing one, however, on firm, dry ground, one has just mastered a crisis, did not have yet the necessary rest to work off the attacked stress. Here relaxation is announced!
- It can also be that stony, precipitous or unwieldy looking way leads by the abyss. Then this is a tip for the fact that one should realise his situation and walk on the way in his own depths. The dream points to fear of controlling loss or identity loss or before the failure in any regard. More positively expressed: It is possible to cross own borders or present experiences.
- in the abyss hinuntersteigen: One should find the reason for an apparently hopeless situation, so that one they lighter overcome, can come so again upwards.
- Gliding one in the abyss, this is to be understood as an even more massive warning, also registers maybe that one will not escape the difficulties any more. One loses ground in any matter.
- in an abyss, can announce one forthcoming personal disaster which is not to be detained any more. According to the personal living conditions the fall also means that one will fall in an unexpected luck, in particular with soft landing on the basis. However, mental grief often stands also in the house, then the dream sometimes moves also a momentary situation from the real life in the picture (possibly fall from the bed which an immediate awakening follows).
- Favourably to indicate it is if one throws stones in the abyss or rock lump hinabrollt, – this symbolises the freeing from worries and miseries which pressed like a rock on the soul.
- Throwing one a person in the abyss, one will free himself probably soon from an interpersonal respect which showed only a load.
- turn away of it: before facts the eyes close.
