If you lose something in your dream, this suggests that you have become distracted in waking life and have lost sight of what really matters. Ask yourself what it is you have lost and what it may symbolize. It may be an opportunity, a relationship, a way of thinking or even your own identity. Do you no longer feel as if you belong somewhere? Alternatively, the image may be a symbol of something that is missing from your life that you never had in the first place. For example, if you lost your car, you may have lost a sense of direction; if you lost money, you may feel you’ve lost your self-confidence or something you value about yourself; if you lost your key, have you forgotten a solution to a problem or perhaps the key to self-knowledge? If you simply can’t work out what significance your lost object has to you, it might help to do a free association exercise (write down the first 10 or so words that immediately come to mind in relation to that symbol) to decipher the lost object’s symbolism, to decipher what it is that you need to find.

A dream of standing on solid ground may mirror your own feelings of groundedness in daily life, but a dream in which the ground gives way under your feet or you have to dodge pitfalls or open manhole covers mirrors your current sense of insecurity in waking life. When the earth opens up in your dream, consider what it is you are afraid of falling into, or what might open up for all to see? If you lose your balance in your dream and fall into a huge pit or hole, are you on the verge of ‘putting your foot in it’ or making a huge blunder (’being wrong footed’) in real life? If you find yourself slipping and stumbling in your dream and are covered in mud, do you feel as if you are making mistakes and your reputation has been dragged through the mud, or have you been the victim of mud-slinging or bad words in the waking world.
Alternatively, do you feel somehow soiled and grubby? If your dream depicted a pig happily rolling in the mud, do you need to take a more down-to-earth approach in waking life? 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?
If you find yourself off the ground in your dream, this may suggest that you are losing connection with your roots of family or culture, or living in a state of mind that does not connect you with everyday reality. This lack of grounding may also be occasionally shown as being on a high building. Finally, if the earth is soft and difficult to walk on, you are probably finding your present life hard to deal with. Negative emotions are bogging you down. 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
