To search for treasure symbolizes man's search for enlightenment, his search for the Holy Grail. Expecting treasure and finding a negative as in the story of Pandora's box is part of our learning how to deal with disappointment. To find a box that has treasure such as gems and jewels in it is to understand that we must break through our own limitations before we find what we are looking for. The search for treasure epitomizes the search for tangible value in the everyday world. Treasure in dreams always represents something that is of value to us. It is the result of personal achievement and effort. To find buried treasure is to find something we have lost, perhaps a part of our personality. To be burying treasure is to be trying to guard against the future and potential problems. You might also like to consult the entries for Box, Chest/Box, Digging/Excavation, Gems/Jewels and Money.
