An error you may fall into, a difficulty you are facing, or a danger that confronts you. A big hole might suggest a descent into the unconscious, memories. A hole, especially with grass, foliage or bushes around it, can represent the female sex organs.

Any hole, tunnel or cave, not only suggest female attributes such as receptiveness, they also indicate the unknown or what is still unconscious. If the tunnel, hole or cave is dimly lit, it suggests aspects of you that are not defined, in the shadows of other more fully expressed qualities. See: Cave and Fall.

A hole can also be an escape route, so you need to define if this is true in your dream.

Difficulty or tricky situation in life; a situation you might ‘fall into’; a place to hide or feel protected in – therefore womb like feelings; an escape route or a way through from one situation into another; a way of ‘seeing through’ something; an ‘opening’ or opportunity; the vagina. Occasionally refers to death. Or sometimes used as word play meaning whole.

A hole is also something that things can go into or come out of. Food goes in our mouth for instance and comes out the other end. So poking food in a hole could link with eating. But holes can link with leaks, and sometimes dreams use a leak to suggest the way we lose energy or waste our energy resources. (Rocket dream as example.)

Going in hole: Meeting feelings, urges or fears we usually keep unconscious; confronting aspects of self buried beneath our surface awareness; memories of womb existence; death – burial.

Falling in hole: Of course it could mean you are meeting a difficulty that you didn’t keep  your eyes open to see. But some holes we fall into or find ourselves confronted by are there as a challenge to see if you are confident that nothing can hurt you in your dreams. Falling is not fatal or even harmful in dreams. We tend to take things we are rightfully scared of in everyday life and then take them into our dreams where nothing can hurt us. But of course we still fear if we do not understand that dreams are like computer games and are virtual realities. You can get killed a hundred times in dreams and yet you awake the next day none the worse – except if you are frightened, and  it is fear that can do you harm, not dreams. See dream yoga.

Holes in clothes, objects: Faults; weaknesses; illness; ‘full of holes’.

Holes in body: Sense of weakness; emptiness in ones life such as loneliness; illness; negative feelings about that part of self; see body for appropriate part.

Hole in head: Letting everyone know what you think; gossiping.

Hole in road: Difficulty ahead. Death or death of person falling down the hole.

Pothole: If you are going into it, it suggests you are exploring the precviously uknown memories or parts of your nature, gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. It could even suggest going back into a womb type awareness.

Small hole: It depends where it is and the context in which it appears. It could refer to the vagina, or a hole on your body.

Useful Questions and Hints:

Is the hole frightening or beckoning?

Where is the hole – in me or in the surroundings?

What feelings did I experience in the dream?

I had a dream that my boyfriend had holes and tears on an innapropriete part of his body, and i didnt say anything i just smiled along with him, and i didnt wanna make him sad or anything…what does that mean?

    Dear Hannah – Your dream may reflect your feelings that are related to that part of your boyfriend’s body. (and his “inappropriate” use of it?)
    The tears may reflect a need to express your feelings rather than “just smiling along with him.”
    It takes some practice to learn to talk with your partner. (about physical intimacy?)
    Before you decide to talk with him, it will be helpful to sort out your own (unconscious) thoughts and feelings and your dream can be the start of this exploration.
    For that purpose you can use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson for both your own dream figure and your boyfriend in your dream.
    While exploring his dream symbol you may uncover whether your boyfriend in your dream reflects your boyfriend in waking life and/or whether he is a symbol for your inner male who is psychologically hurt; http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/archetype-of-the-animus-jungs-view-of-the-male-in-the-female/
    Not wanting to make “him” sad may reflect your resistance towards experiencing your own feelings; http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/cried-cry-crying/

I had a dream there was a monster tornado it was killing everyone in the city and me and my parents were terrified we kept trying to find the best place to take cover but this giant gaping hole where you could see the sun kept sucking people up and luring over our heads and we lived in constant fear it would turn into a tornado again, the hole kept moving further and further from us to the next town but the sky was black always and we were scared

For several nights now I wake and check the front yard. I dream that right under my nose someone is digging 1 quart to bushel sized holes in my front yard, and now water is bubbling out of one, the largest one that is right outside of my front door.
It scares me!
What could they mean?
I’ve dreamed of things that came true-a relative’s sudden illness, deaths, pleas for help,
and of conversations with dead relatives. But nothing like this.

I had a weird dream , I was walking and I stumbled across a hole . I looked down and all of a sudden a child crawls out . Then , I think 6 more crawled out , different ages too ! I stood there just staring and all of a sudden a man pokes his head out and says you were my favorite one . Then I woke up. What does that mean ?
