Water Dreams




Water dreams are a prime example of why age-old dream dictionaries are of no use.

The meaning of dreams of water depends on your dream and how you feel about the water in it, how you feel about water in your every day life and how you chose to represent water in your dream as a symbol of something important.

Your dream could involve a beautiful paradise lake with waterfalls, or they could consist of muddy murky swamps containing dead bodies.

Before understanding what water dreams mean, you need to understand what water means to you and why you dreamt of the particular body of water that you did.

Was it a place you go to regularly i.e. a harbour or a lake?

Was it an unknown place and scary?

Was the water smooth, turbulent, clear or murky?

Was the water free flowing or stagnant? i.e. ice

Did you move easily through the water or is every motion an effort?

Sometimes water can represent emotions, but it could also just be a representation of a place that you like, i.e. a favourite beach or a wonderful waterfall from a vacation you once had.

Uncovering the meaning of dreams of water is really up to you.
Try to understand how you responded to the water in your dreams and what parallels the water theme holds for your waking life. Were you drowning or swimming with dolphins? Was it a pleasant or unpleasant experience?
