When interpreting this dream, consider all of the details and the quality of your experience. Did you see a light at the end of the tunnel, or were you trapped in a tunnel unable to determine your location? The tunnel could represent a variety of things. If it was not an unpleasant experience, it may symbolize a transitional period and a passage into new levels of understanding or ways of living. Freud thought that any tunnel-like object represented the vagina. A tunnel in a dream may also be a symbol representing the archetype of the feminine.
