Psychological Meaning: The mountains on either side of you set limitations to the direction you can go. Your dream may show that the choices you have are limited. You are forced to move forward. A journey through a valley sometimes symbolises the transition from one set of circumstances to another. (i.e. through the valley of death to a new life). You may be going through difficult but ultimately beneficial spiritual changes.
Mystical Meaning: As a spiritual dream symbol, a valley may represent judgement and the importance of modesty: “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain” (Isa. 40:4) Similarly, in the I Ching it says: “High mountains are worn down by the waters, and the valleys are filled up. It is the law of fate to undermine what is full and prosper the modest. And men also hate fullness and love the modest.” (Richard Wilhelm Translation, Routledge & Kegan Paul)
