This means that you are probably aware of something that is going to happen in your future that is very important to you. You are actively seeking in your dreams, just as you do in your waking life, to see the end or the conclusion of this event. You want to know the outcome of the future, but it will not let you because the opening to the tomb is too deep and dark. Inspecting around the abyss will get you nowhere, you need to plunge in on order to truly see what is going to happen to you, but will you make the jump?
This is yet another definition of what the dream of an abyss might mean. It could mean that there is a very important road that you will have to take soon, but you are scared to make the final jump in the end. Whatever happens to you, it may be hard and it may be scary, but the only way that you will know what could have happened is if this is what you do. If you care enough about the possible outcome of your trip, then you will take it so that what could have happened will be your true reality. This is an important step in seeing who you are as a person. Will you continue on for what you believe in, or will you stop in your tracks out of fear? Only time will tell.
If you dream that you are falling through an abyss, this could mean that you are feeling out of control of your life. Your arms are flailing here and there and your legs cannot catch hold of anything. You are hurtling through the unknown, but have no idea where you are going and have no control of the speed or the way in which you get to the end. To see if this is really the case, when you are awake, make a list of all of the things that you are control of. Include simple things such as bodily functions in this list. Then make a list of things you do not have control of. The majority of most important things should be listed in the section that you are in control of. If not, then this means you are definitely lacking control of your own destiny. See what you can do about regaining control of those things that you’ve listed.
Dreaming about falling into an abyss could also indicate the falling through the levels of the unconscious. There are so many facets to our imaginations and our subconscious’. It would only make sense that when you feel mentally overwhelmed for whatever reason, you would see yourself falling into a black chasm, the bottom of which you can’t see. You are lost in your imagination more often than not. Try regaining control of your consciousness and don’t let yourself drift too much. This is the best way to show your mastery over yourself and your urges.
