Water in Your Dreams
Meaning of Dreams about Water Dreams, interpreting your bad dreams, learn what they mean!  Find out now FREE! Water is a very universal symbol so the meaning of dreams about water varies from person to person. In general, however, water is seen as an omen. If you dream of calm water, then your time ahead in life will be smooth but if you dream of rough waters then you may have difficulties.

One meaning of dreams about water is sexuality. Swimming in a dream can be very much compared to the sex act. This is especially true if you dream that you are being sprayed with water. If the water is sprayed on your head, your love for someone else will be reciprocated.

Water in a dream is also thought to represent cleansing, especially spiritual renewal. This comes from its Christian relationship to the baptismal act, which involves pouring water over the head.  

Dreaming of drinking water can mean spiritual solace as well, especially if the water is cold. If the water is hot, it can mean that business will not be so hot and that you can experience setbacks.

It is very good to dream of a fountain or a waterfall. Both symbolize prosperity, health, and lasting happiness. If you dream that you are in a pool of gently flowing water, it means peace of mind. If the water smells or is stagnant, it can symbolize disappointment.

The quality of the water in the dream can also be an omen. If the water is dirty or murky, it can symbolize difficulties. To fall into muddy water means you will make a mistake that you will deeply regret. To drink muddy water means you may feel guilty about something.

If you dream that you are throwing or spilling water, it means that you need to control your temper or that your emotions are out of control.

If you are dreaming that you are drowning, it can indicate that you are feeling overwhelmed or suffocated by your life circumstances and that you need some relief. Dreaming of very deep water means that you might have a sense of foreboding or menace about someone or something.

When it comes to dreams about water, floods can also mean that you feel overwhelmed. It can also mean that a good deal of psychic energy is being unleashed at one time.

Dreaming that you are lying by a swimming pool might simply be a wish fulfillment dream. It is a wish to increase your status in life.

It is also a good luck to dream that you are in a forest or desert and that you stumble along a creek. However, raging rivers, rapids and frothy water can mean that you are no longer feeling in control of your life circumstances.

Dreaming of taps is also considered to be an ill omen, especially if the tap is leaking or water. Taps symbolize a lack of control over one's circumstances as well.

I used to have dreams about being at the beach, and there would be very large waves that would break, but I would be able to run away and watch them break at the end of the beach. Recently, I had a wonderful dream, but it started strangely. I was at the beach but it was night. I was in the water, as were several other people. All of a sudden, a very large (several stories) wave was in front of me. All of the people in the water joined hands, and the wave just disappeared. It was right after I decided on volunteering that I had this dream.

I just had a dream where in the dream I passed on two different occasions an old car owned by my ex-husband (he doesn't actually own this car) on the side of the road. We were in a controlled and not scary flood that had travelled half up the car. inside the car was flooded up to the base of the seat of the car. There were items on the passenger seat. The window was open on the car passenger side. On the second time of walking past this car, this started to seem very significant in this dream. The car seemed to be abandoned in a car park. Either that or he didn't care that it was being flooded. He wasn't with me. I was walking with someone but don't remember who it was. It may have been my son, and we were stopping and looking at the items not the seat. Think one item was a camera, wet. Interestingly I woke up feeling better than I felt yesterday. Yesterday I had an unusually emotional day. I felt overwhelmed by many things that don't normally bother me at all. I was also tired yesterday.

I was dreaming that me and my husband went to this amazing party where I knew this one guy called shaun he said we must play a game he always played when he was having pool parties he had the most incredible pool in the middle was a hot tub we firt had to climb in then climb out and swim the whole pool ... So we did so but here's where it got freaky there was a boat floating around and the pool was scary deep the side of the pool was covered in thick layers ice and in the kiddies corner of the pool the floating duckies had a thick ice block in but I could feel how me swimming released all the negative energy in body it was truly amazing ... It makes me want o sleep again XD

Hi! Its me again, sorry I just now responding to your question about my dream. The one about the wolf whom I did state was a white wolf right. It was in a lake that was clear that is why I could see him in the water at first but was not sure so I dove in. And at the time I had this dream it was after my boyfriend said he wanted to us take a break. He was in the dream with me but so was his sister and niece, my daughter and her ex-boyfriend and his mother. I still remember this dream because its always bothers me that I can not figure it out. The funny thing about My boyfriend and I is that When He ask me a direct question about something and I don't want to tell him I either blurt out the truth because I can not help it I can not lie to him or I say nothing at all my mind goes blank and I don't no why. But I've been trying to figure out what went wrong that one minute he says nothing going to change between us and then he running over my house to say we need to take a break. Thats when I start having these dreams and yes I had another dream about this wolf but it was not in water this time I was in some house that I think belong to me or my boyfriend not sure. The wolf came out of the basement but he was not alone. Other animals fallowed him and came towards me but I was not scared of them. I woke up before I could find out what they wanted. It kind of reminded me of something my boyfriend said to me once about being in the basement to deal with is demons. Anyway the other dream about the lake kind of ended with all the people in the dream looking at this older women whom lifted her left arm up and there circling her left breast was some sort of boils or sises lined up around her breast forming this circle. we could not see who she was. Yes as to your other question during my Marriage to someone else I was hideing who I was and wanted my boyfriend to no the real me not the person he tought was me. I've started to act more like my old self since celebrating my one year anniversity of being divorced. but now I do not have my boyfriend either here. Sure He calls claiming he just checking to see how I doing but I don't see him and its not funny. I really miss him he always brought light to my days. But I'm going back to school I hope Soon and I'll keep busy.. Hopefully I can get back into a book I been trying to write for years called searching Souls. Thanks for the listening. Alicia

Aries, thanks a lot. That really makes sense. I am still wallowing in negative emotions about my ex husband. I am trying really hard to get rid of those emotions but it is really hard. Guess the man coming out of the covered pool symbolised my ex-husband. I really need to get over our divorce. I wish it was that easy.
By Aries, Saturday, August 02, 2008 01:32:25 PM
Green. Water you can't see usually represents wallowing in negative emotions. That's the general idea I'm getting just now.

I dreamt about taking my siblings, nieces, and nephews to swim. When we got to the swimming pool, the pool was covered with some kind of cloth with one part open for entrance. When I looked at the entrance, a man was coming out of the pool. I have been searching but have no clue what the dream means. Anyone have any idea.
