Your conscience is amplifying your range of action. (See LIGHT, BLACK, and BRIDGE)

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

You are making a transition through lower levels of consciousness.

A tunnel allows for movement underground and safe passage underneath a body of water or other above-ground landscape. Being inside of a tunnel connects to a transition into new territory in your life.

The part of this transition represented by the tunnel itself is the most difficult part, often characterized by a sense of loss and lack of direction. Very often when you are inside a tunnel that is symbolic of a transition, you may not know where you are coming from and, even more frightening, where you are going to wind up.

The thing most often looked for while in a tunnel is the light at the end, so there can be a sense of hope in uncertainty.

Some dream researchers believe that birth dreams lead us back to life in the womb and the traumas associated with our own experience of birth. The psychoanalyst Nandor Fodor has written extensively about the subject of birth dreams, and gives the example of a woman who was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck and who, in adult life, frequently dreamt of being strangled. She also gives an example of a person who received a head injury during birth, and in adult life frequently dreamt of being scalped. For example, dream attempts to escape from a tunnel, especially if small and dark, may refer either to memories of birth or to strategies you need to develop to reach inner resources.
