The lips are the sensuous guardians of the center of communication and intimate exchange. They are the first mechanism of control over what comes into the body with regard to nurturance, and they are the last mechanism of control over what goes out from us in terms of communication.
The color of lips can range from blue to red, with the former associated with a lack of warmth and the latter seen as filled with life-giving blood and therefore passion. When someone’s lips turn blue, he or she is literally freezing to death, making this a potentially high-stakes image. These details should be considered if the color of lips was prominent in the dream imagery. How much control are you exerting over your communication and your willingness to be intimate with others? The color of your dream lips may reveal this.
The essence of this symbol is intimate connection, whether that is to the world through words or to another person through a kiss. Just as when lips meet in life, there is a mingling of fluids and all that implies. Lips meeting in a dream can indicate a need or desire to mingle with and absorb another mode of communication. Lips that are too loose can allow communication to flow indiscriminately, whereas those that are pursed too tightly can indicate holding back.

If your dream depicted you being sucked into the ground or into mud, do you feel caught in a situation that is draining you and about which you feel powerless to do anything? Ask yourself who, or what, the mud or sand in the dream may have represented. Is anyone, or anything, in your life dragging you down? Or have you become a prisoner of your own inhibitions, so that you are stuck in the mud?

But if the earth is dry and firm, then you are feeling on firm ground as far as relationships and creativity are concerned. See also DISASTERS.... The Element Encyclopedia
