Earth Dreams: Finding Balance In Our Lives

Negative dreams about earth teach us about integrating, grounding and finding balance in our lives. According to Carl Jung he understood the psyche being comprised of two elements of both masculine (sun), and feminine (earth) within each individual. The goal would be to integrate these unconscious energies in our lives in order to become a complete person.

Dreaming of the earth falling represents emotional instability or loss of control in our lives. Dreams about leaving earth represents unconscous fears about the state of humanity, or reflects a spiritual imbalance in your life.

Since we see earth as the proverbial “Mother” we must keep her happy and balanced at all times. Dreaming of the earth opening (if non threatening) relates to opening up these unconscious energies from within. To dream of the earth either rotating or moving connects the dreamer to the WHEEL – a symbol that leads towards ENLIGHTENMENT.
