To dream of standing above a chasm may represent feelings about a challenge being too dangerous or too difficult to overcome. It may also reflect feelings about a dangerous “leap of faith” you need to take. Fear of getting too close to a situation with the potential to cause an enormous problem for you.
To dream of moving through a rocky chasm represents feelings about difficult moments where time and carefulness are important. Feelings about a situation being very critical to not make a mistake with. Difficult or dangerous situations that you can only carefully move forward with. Having no choice, but to move forward with a situation on terms that aren’t decided by you at all.
To dream of having a house overlooking a chasm may reflect feelings about your life being stuck with a dangerous challenge or risk. Permanently living in fear of having to take a big risk to achieve your goals. Feeling that it’s too hard or dangerous to move on with your life.
Example: A woman dreamed of carefully walking past a rocky chasm. In waking life she was in the late stages of pregnancy. The rocky chasm most likely reflected her feelings about how dangerous late term pregnancy could be and her wish to get through it without any mistakes at all.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of seeing her recently deceased son throwing heavy rocks into a frozen river inside which her home overlooked to break the ice. In waking life she was trying hard to recover from the loss of her son and “break the ice” of her “frozen heart.”
