Fears of death and dying are often translated in dreams as entering into a valley the so-called Valley of Death. The less fear we have over dying the easier our transition, which is symbolized by the valley, will be. In Spiritual terms it is simply recognizing that death is inevitable for all of us. Being in a valley can represent the sheltering, feminine side of our nature and also being down to earth. Leaving a valley suggests coming out of a period of introversion in order to function properly in the everyday world. Dreaming of going down into a valley can have the same significance as going downstairs that is, going down into the subconscious or unknown parts of ourselves. The result of this can be two-fold, sometimes depression and gloominess and sometimes finding new areas of productiveness.
