What does it mean when you dream about roots?

The significance of roots in a dream lies in the unconscious mind. As a metaphor, roots reaching deep into the earth symbolize delving into the depths of the self, expressing the potentials of the soul. Roots erupting from the earth expose these talents to the world. Roots can also symbolize the concept of origin, as in the expressions “their roots go back quite a ways,” “their family has strong roots,” and “the root word.”
