If you have a dream in which nakedness features strongly, or if you dream of appearing underdressed in public, ask yourself if you want others to see you as you really are in waking life. Examine how other people respond to you in the dream, as their reaction and behavior may be holding you back. Often these dreams reveal a fear of exposure, so ask yourself if you feel guilty about something. Have you recently been pretending, or even lying, about something you don’t want others to discover? Also ask yourself if you fear that a plan or a concept you are offering to others will be met with disapproval. You should also pay attention to your feelings in the dream about being naked or underdressed. Do you feel pleasure at being free of inhibitions, or do you feel anxious and vulnerable?...

Dreams about activities and environments associated with childhood can be either motivating or discouraging, depending on the details of your dream and how you felt. For example, if you had a happy time playing with your dolls or a toy train set, your dream may simply be reminding you of the simple pleasure of letting your guard down from time to time to do nothing useful but play and relax. These kinds of dreams are particularly common if you have been extremely busy recently and haven’t had time to have fun. If, however, you were bored by the toy or activity in your dream, your unconscious may be urging you to put away childish things that don’t really give you stimulation and satisfaction, and to spend your time more productively.
Toys in dreams not only reflect your desire for more play, or urge you to grow up in some way, they can also suggest nostalgia for childhood that has been lost. Dolls are especially important because they so resemble the human form, and because children endow them with emotions and characters. Your dreaming mind may therefore use a doll to symbolize something or someone in your life. For example, if you stick needles or pins in the doll, or mistreat it in any way, this can represent negative feelings towards a particular person. Many doll dreams use the doll as a target for violence and, if this is the case, it could also refer to how the dreamer felt as a child when smacked emotionally or physically—like a helpless child. Dolls can also represent emotions that the dreamer would like to discharge on someone else, or the feeling of wanting to be a precious doll to someone. It may also express some undeveloped part of the dreamer’s personality and the need to relearn some childhood lessons we may have forgotten.
If you dreamed that you were in a playground surrounded by other children, were you enjoying yourself or did you feel left out? If you felt exhilarated, your unconscious may once again be signaling your need to have more fun in waking life, but if you felt aloof or alone from the other children, it could suggest that you prefer to play no part in the immature behaviour currently displayed by a group of people in your waking life.

Just as the physical earth is made up of past events—the trees and leaves, the plants and creatures that have lived and crumbled into the dust of the soil—so the earth of your dream represents the past on which your present depends and your future is built. Therefore, digging into it will tend to uncover things—most often feelings—you have buried there from your past. The earth is also your mother. It represents the soil, the genetic material, and the background from which you have sprung. It is the womb of the past from which you are born. In other words, it is both the physical material from which things grow as well as the overall environment in which something new can grow.
So if you are digging in your dream, is there something you need to learn about your past? Or is there something you want to find out, a vital piece of information that will complete the picture? If you are uncovering an object or old bones, then you are probably becoming conscious of long buried memories and feelings from your past.
If you are trying to bury something, what are you trying to cover up or hide in waking life? Bear in mind the expressions associated with digging, too. Is someone having a dig at you in waking life? Did your dream reflect your entrenched, firmly held opinions? Or was your unconscious urging you to adopt a more down-to-earth approach? If you are a gardener, you will know that although the earth is the giver of sustenance, security and new life, each life cycle also has an end, so when earth figures in a dream, it may also indicate the end of a phase in life and the beginning of a new one
A dream about digging, watering or feeding the earth may therefore suggest your desire to begin a new phase. It could also depict your fear of unpalatable hidden truths being exposed in waking life. Anything growing from the earth in your dream shows something that has developed from the possibilities of your life, and who you are.
If your dream depicted you planting a seed, try to make a connection with your waking life. The dream seeds may refer to the planting of an intellectual or creative concept that has the potential to grow if placed in fertile ground and cared for. Then again, planting dreams may refer to your thoughts about starting a family. A dream of healthy crops may suggest that your waking ventures or family are flourishing.
If what you are taking from the earth is vegetables or things to eat, these are the fruits of your past efforts, and suggest benefits arising in your life. If, however, the earth in your dream is barren and nothing is growing, this could indicate that you are emotionally and physically exhausted by the demands of waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreams in which you are inappropriately dressed or underdressed when everyone else is appropriately dressed for the occasion are classic metaphors for feelings of frustration and uncertainty in your waking life. Perhaps you arrive at your dream party wearing formal dress and everyone else is in shorts.
If you are underdressed, it suggests that you feel out of place or are falling short of other people’s standards.
If you are overdressed, a misplaced air of superiority is indicated. Such dreams also reflect your insecurity about your social position and how other people regard you.
If you were completely naked whilst everyone else was dressed, did you feel liberated or mortified?
The clothes we wear in dreams are aspects of our persona, so when they are stripped away they enable you to see your—self for who you really are; in other words, the absence of clothes reveals not only your body, but also your true self.
If you felt embarrassed in your dream, do you feel vulnerable about exposing your true self or feel that it is lacking in some way? Are you afraid of being rejected if you show others what you truly feel? What are you afraid of exposing about yourself? If, however, you felt liberated, perhaps it is time to throw away your pretences and reveal to others who you truly are.
If nobody other than yourself noticed your nudity, your unconscious is comforting you by letting you know that it is safe to reveal your feelings in the real world. Another symbol of frustration in dreams is being refused a restaurant table, especially if there are plenty of spare tables in the restaurant. Such a dream, with its association with food and social interaction, may express a sense of social inadequacy.... The Element Encyclopedia
At whatever stage of life you are, if there is a deep imbalance or lack of harmony in your current relationship, you may find that your dreams take on a warning quality, even becoming haunted and strange. Plants, trees, animals and fish in particular tend to appear as symbols of the life or vitality of the relationship; if you are having relationships problems, you may dream of trying to rescue an injured animal or watering dying plants. Another common dream is entrusting your beloved pet or fish to your partner’s care, only to return and find it neglected, dying or even dead. These may all be symbols of those of your emotional needs that are being starved or denied, and of relationships that are struggling to survive.
Other dreams that signal emotional imbalance in intimate relationships are dreams of houses on fire, bombs that are about to explode or images of starvation, loneliness, torture or neglect. These images are warning you that your relationship is out of balance, dangerously fragile or in need of rescuing in your waking life. An inappropriate meeting or pairing of two objects in your dream, for example a kangaroo and a light bulb, might suggest that you are somewhat concerned about an unsuitable partner; this might either be your own partner, or that of someone close to you—say a son or a daughter. Repeatedly getting the wrong person on the phone, seeing an email error message or simply being unable to communicate may also indicate a disturbing inability to communicate with someone in your life who is important to you.
If you are having problems with your cellphone, this might be seen by Freudians as a symbol of sexual dysfunction or anxiety. Another potent symbol of a relationship coming to an end is the image of gold dust or precious jewels running through your fingers in a dream. The image is even more eloquent if you are running with two cupped hands full of water in an attempt to quench your own or someone else’s thirst and the dream water falls through your hands
A real-life need to resolve relationship problems may be symbolized by dreams about repairing something, perhaps fixing a car or attaching things together with glue, sellotape or bluetac.
If you experience blocked communication in your relationship or suffer from an inability to get through to someone close to you, you may have dreams in which people are staring at one another in your dream but no one is saying. Such a dream may also suggest that now is an excellent time to deepen your relationship, as the silent figures await your signal for a new and exciting phase of your relationship to begin.... The Element Encyclopedia
If you are in a committed relationship and dreamt of sleeping with someone else’s husband or wife or someone who is sexually off limits, such as a cousin or your doctor, remember that the message from your unconscious may not have been that you desire that person, although this is a possible interpretation, but that you would like to have a closer emotional connection to them.
If you wake from such a dream with feelings of remorse, perhaps you have been unfaithful or less than honest with your partner in other ways. It is also worth bearing in mind when trying to interpret dreams that depict you making love to someone who plays a major, but definitely nonsexual, part in your life that your unconscious may simply be reflecting your waking preoccupation with them at the same time that you are becoming sexually aroused. So if you dreamt of making love to your unattractive boss, it may simply have been a coincidence that they stepped into the lover role in your dreams.... The Element Encyclopedia

Though they are large in size, manatees have a gentle nature and graceful movements. In this way, they vibrate with the principles of peace and surrender.

Example: ‘I am at a wedding at which we are being served a celebratory chicken lunch. Whilst my back is turned for a moment one of the other guests on the table (who is female but whom I do not know) removed my plate and substitutes it with a plate of food which doesn’t contain chicken.

Unlike rivers and seas, lakes, lagoons, pools, ponds and puddles are typically still, so if they feature in your dream, they could be reflecting your emotional calm.

In dreams, water is a common theme and its association with the fluid of the womb and its role in evolution make it an archetypal symbol in the dreamer’s emotional life.
Water is also a symbol of the spiritual life force. In most cultures there are tales of healing waters and in dreams, as in baptism, to be immersed in water is to be spiritually cleansed. As the governing element of the Zodiac signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, it is said to endow people born under that sign with the feminine qualities of gentleness and changeability.
Dreams of entering water suggest refreshment, healing and beginning something new. Deep water, pools and lakes are symbols of the unconscious or of being out of your depth, while shallow water represents a lack of energy. To dream of drawing water from a tap or well, or to be drinking it is in general a positive and creative sign. However, to spill water suggests setbacks. Flowing water signifies peace and security. To be immersed in water suggests pregnancy and birth or new beginnings, and coming out of water also suggests a fresh start. Fast-flowing water suggests lively encounters and fastmoving action; deep, still water suggests hidden depths, whilst also possibly warning against a person of few words with a hidden agenda.
If you see your reflection in water, this suggests the transient nature of life since the reflection can easily be lost.
The imagery may serve as a caution against trusting unworthy friends or projects.
If, in your dream, the water is dirty or muddy, it means your feelings are influenced by outer circumstances, worries, material problems, or values. If, however, the water is clear and sparkling, it symbolizes faith, honesty, hope and joy. Have you dreamed of boiling water? If you have, this may indicate the need to let off some steam. Is anything welling up that needs your attention? If you are on the water, for example in a boat, this suggests lack of emotional commitment, whilst to be in the water but not moving suggests fatigue.
If you dream of the elements of water and air clashing—such as strong winds creating a stormy sea—the symbolism suggests you might be contemplating human emotion in general, with all its ebb and flow from rage to calm and rage again. Finally, don’t forget that dreams featuring water may simply be triggered by raging thirst or a full bladder while you sleep.... The Element Encyclopedia

To dream that you are attending a theater is a desire to get away from monotony or overwork. It can also be a hidden urge to be more important than you are at present. See Adobe, Actor.... Psycho Dream Interpretation
The dreams are, in and of themselves, works of theater represented by the fears, problems, and hopes of your imagination. Theater, overall, is a dream within another dream. The plays are the staging of morals, critiques, and observations that will help you reach the desired emotional and psychological equilibrium. Since the Greek tragedies, there has always been the desire to portray intimate emotions through theater with the end of gaining wisdom, resignation before the inevitable, etc. So, dreaming that you see a play foretells a period of benefits and satisfaction in general. In the same fashion, you should try to decipher what each element of the piece means.
If you are not participating in the performance, it denotes that you are living too passively. On the contrary, if you are in the scene it signifies the desire to take the reins in your life. To do so, you should analyze and pay attention to what occurs during the play, as the plot will reveal the essence of the dream. Further, the role that you play in the piece could be very revealing.
Those wise men who have reached a high level of consciousness assure that life is like a play. You play a small and short role within the entirety of the cosmic game. When you die, you take off the costume and return to your true identity. A curious superstition says that, if you dream that your teeth fall out, you will give birth to a boy who will be very famous in the world of theater.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

A spiritual threat is one that forces us to reassess our beliefs. Most often it will contain options of action that lead to a degree of inevitability either way. Once on that particular path we have no choice but to continue. In dreams the image of a divided path or road will often occur at this time, or of going up or down.

Dreams in later life can be extremely tense and memorable; two of the most common are dreams of losing your purse or wallet and dreams of getting lost. The former dream reflects frustration and anxiety, and the experience of change as loss and threat. The latter is about trying to find your way through a situation that seems unfamiliar. In this second dream you typically find yourself in a strange neighborhood and, if you do stop to ask for directions, people give you the wrong ones. This dream represents a situation that is unfamiliar; the advice of others is not only unhelpful, it can actually make matters more confusing. The dream is reminding you that the more closely you follow your instincts or intuition, the easier it will be to find your way home or have self-knowledge.

Dreaming of being underwater suggests you are in over your head regarding some situation. You need to gain better control over your life.
If you can breathe underwater in your dream, this represents a retreat back into the womb. You want to return to a state where you were more carefree and had no responsibilities.... My Dream Interpretation
A journey into the unconscious may be symbolized by an underwater dream. The underwater descent is a journey of discovery into your unknown parts and is a sign that you are ready to explore your own intuitive and instinctive aspects. The symbolism may also be a representation of the womb, the underwater scene symbolizing regression and the hope of rebirth. Perhaps you are feeling helpless, unable to care for yourself and long to return to a stage where you are dependent and free of responsibilities. To dream that you are underwater may also indicate that you are feeling overcome with emotions and are in need of greater control in your life, or that you may be in over your head regarding some situation.
How the water behaves in your dream is also significant. Rising water indicates rising emotions. Turbulent, choppy waters symbolize being overwhelmed emotionally. Being caught in a swift moving current suggests being ’swept up’ in one’s emotions. Cloudy water suggests lack of emotional clarity or a fear of emotional contamination. Swimming or bathing peacefully in water symbolizes a comfortable immersion in your emotions. The ability to breathe underwater and interact with creatures of the sea indicates that you have access to your unconscious feelings and awareness. Seeing a diver or becoming a diver suggests that you are delving into your unconscious, or trying to ’get to the bottom’ of a current situation or problem. Not surprisingly, Freudians believe that underwater diving may have sexual connotations and represents intercourse.
In addition to fish and sea creatures, what you observe in your underwater dream may be significant.
If you see a sea chest, this indicates what you carry with you on your spiritual quest, or in everyday terms, your spiritual baggage. The sea floor refers to your spiritual foundations. Is it ablaze with color and life, or barely inhabited? Sea foam stands for spiritual confusion or a stirring of your beliefs, seafood for spiritual knowledge and nourishment. Recall the condition and type of food. Sea level pertains to spiritual truths, whilst sea legs suggest spiritual comfort or feeling at home with your spirituality. Sea monsters suggest spiritual danger and an earthquake at sea warns that your beliefs might be shaken. Sea salt stands for strong spiritual beliefs, seashells for spiritual gifts and talents. Recall the quality and quantity of the shells. Sea slugs warn of spiritual laziness or entrapment, sea snails denote a slow and steady progress with your spiritual development, sea sponges stand for spiritual over absorption and sea spray represents spiritual gifts or insights. Finally, coral symbolizes your spiritual attributes, coral fish stand for spiritual protectiveness and guarding your beliefs from outside influences and a coral reef represents the difficulties of maintaining a spiritual balance in the physical world....

Water is a very common but powerful dream symbol. Its meaning varies with the details and the mood of the dream. Water is a deeply spiritual symbol representing the “water of life” or the “flow of life.” Large bodies of water usually represent our unconscious minds or/and soul experiences.

Emotions, moods and flow of feeling energy. Because of the nature of water it lends itself to depicting aspects of how we relate to emotions; for instance, one can drown’ in or feel swept away by some emotions, at other times we can feel cleansed and refreshed. It also represents our potential to experience many emotions because water can take any shape or move in so many ways. How we relate to the water shows how we are meeting our emotions and moods.
Example: ‘I am in deep water, no evidence that it is the sea. I am wearing my heavy brown coat. I have no fear, no feeling of cold and I pleasantly just sink’ (Mrs B). Mrs B is in her 80s, and is preparing for death in her dreams.
The water in her dream has the feeling of being womblike, suggesting that she senses death as a return to a womblike feeling state, with possible rebirth.
Example: ‘I was then standing in front of a senes of glass water tanks. I had apparently written an article about the balance between intellect and emotion, which had presented emotion in a way to show its equal value with intellect.
The tanks had water flowing through them with a series of valves. This demonstrated the different relationships between intellect and emotion. Some tanks were beautifully clear and colourful, showing the right balance.
The unbalanced ones had weed growing in them. I was then in a lift with a young woman. We moved close together and kissed. This moved my feelings so much I felt a great melting feeling in my abdomen, and a lot of body sensation against her body’ (Anthony F). Anthony’s dream perfectly illustrates how water refers to the emotions and flowing body feelings.
Example: ‘I was in a hospital ward—maybe for children. I was there to help them. In the ward was a large oblong tank full of water. I got into the water. I realised all the sick people in the ward bathed in the water—not soap, just immersion. This produced feelings of revulsion. I felt I would take into myself their sickness. I also thought that if I drank the water it would show the patients a positive attitude towards their sickness. They would no longer be afraid, and this would be a factor in their healing’ (Anthony F). Another of Anthony’s dreams in which he is looking at how to meet anxious feelings about his health. He sees that a more positive conscious attitude heals the childhood fears.
Entering water: entering into strong feelings such as might arise in a relationship or new job, sexual relationship, emotions which might stand in one’s way—as a deep lake might, or turgid water.

(5) as a feeling that life is chaotic.

Falling into the water means being swept away by emotion; hut this may also he a warning dream, pointing also to Diving and Drowning.

Water appears so often in dreams as an image, with so many different meanings, that it is possible only to suggest sonic probable ones. Thus, being immersed in water can suggest pregnancy and birth.

Bathing suggests purification.
Canals svmbolise the birth process.
Dams, islands and other obstacles are conscious attempts to control the force of the water, and therefore our emotions. Diving represents going down into the unconscious, or perhaps trying to find the parts of ourselves which we have suppressed. Drowning highlights our ability to push things into the unconscious only to have them emerge as a force which can overcome us. Floods represent the chaotic side of us, which is usually uncontrollable. This side requires attention when it wells up and threatens to overwhelm us.
Fountains suggest womanhood, and particularly the Great Mother (see Introduction).
A lake, like a pool, can signify a stage of transition between the conscious and the spiritual Self. When come upon unexpectedly it can give us the opportunity to appreciate and understand ourselves.
To be reflected in a pool indicates the dreamer needs to conic to terms with the Shadow (see Introduction). We must learn to acccpt that there will be a part of ourselves that we do not like very much but, when harnessed, it can give much energy for change. Rivers or streams always represent the dreamer’s life and the way that he is living it. It will depend on the dreamer’s attitude as to whether he see his life as a large river or a small stream.
If the river is rushing by we may feel that life is moving loo quickly for us.
If we can sec the sea as well as the river, we may be aware that a great change must occur or that attention musl be paid to the unconscious within.
If the river is very deep we should perhaps be paying attention to the rest of the world, and how we relate to it. Crossing a river indicates great changes.
If the river causes fear we are perhaps creating an unnecessary difficulty for ourselves.
If the water in the river appears to be contaminated we are not doing the best we can for ourselves.
Sea or ocean The sea very often represents cosmic consciousness, that is, the original chaotic state from which all life emerges. Inherent in that state is all knowledge i.e. completedness, although that may be obscured by our fear of the depths. We do not fear that which we understand.
A shallow sea suggests superficial emotion.
The waves in the sea represent emotion and lust.
A calm sea suggests a peaceful existence, while a stormy sea signifies passion, either negative or positive.
To be conscious of the rise and fall of the tides is to be conscious both of the passage of time and of the rise and fall of our own emotions.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

A lake, like a pool, can signify a stage of transition between the conscious and the spiritual self. When come upon unexpectedly it can give us the opportunity to appreciate and understand ourselves.
To be reflected in a pool indicates we need to come to terms with the shadow. We must learn to accept that there will be a part of ourselves that we do not like very much but, when harnessed, it can give much energy for change. Overflows and overflowing can signify an excess of energy, often emotion that is too much to be contained. Rivers or streams always represent our lives and the way that we live them. It will depend on our attitude as to whether we see our life as a large river or a small stream.
If the river is rushing by we may feel that life is moving too quickly for us.
If we can see the sea as well as the river, we may be aware that a great change needs to occur or that attention must be paid to the unconscious within. Crossing a river indicates great changes.
If the river is very deep we should perhaps be paying attention to the way we relate to the rest of the world.
If the river is frightening we are perhaps creating an unnecessary difficulty for ourselves.
If the water in the river appears to be contaminated we are not doing the best we can for ourselves. Seas or oceans very often represent cosmic consciousness – that is, the original chaotic state from which all life emerges. Inherent in that state is all knowledge – i.E. Completeness – although that may be obscured by our fear of deep emotion; we do not fear that which we understand.
A shallow sea suggests superficial emotion.
The waves in the sea represent strong emotion and passion.
A calm sea suggests a peaceful existence, while a stormy one signifies passion, either negative or positive.
To be conscious of the rise and fall of the tides is to be conscious both of the passage of time and of the rise and fall of our own emotions. Waterfalls symbolize any emotion that reaches the stage where it must ‘spill over’ in order to become manageable.... Dream Meanings of Versatile
Material aspects: Water is usually taken in dreams to symbolize all that is emotional and feminine. Water can also stand for our potential and our ability to create a new life for ourselves in response to our own inner urgings. Water also represents cleansing, being able to wash away the contamination that we may experience in everyday life. Water appears so often in dreams as an image, with so many different meanings, that it is possible only to suggest some probable ones. Entering water suggests new beginnings and being immersed in water is a return to the womb and can suggest pregnancy and birth. Flowing water signifies peace and comfort, while rushing water can indicate passion. Deep water suggests the unconscious and can also indicate that we feel out of our depth, while shallow water represents a lack of essential energy.
To be on the water (as in a boat) can represent indecision or a lack of emotional commitment, while to be in the water but not moving can suggest inertia. Going down into water indicates a need to renew one’s strength, to go back to the beginning, while coming up out of the water suggests a fresh start.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

General Meaning: The force that brings about the washing in our lives.
The Word of God and the anointing are both depicted by Water in the Scriptures.
• Positive: Being washed with water speaks of being cleansed and of putting things behind you. It also speaks of being cleansed from your sin.
• Water is a picture of the anointing. John 4:14 Water is also a picture of the Word of God, and how it sets us free from the dirt in our lives.
• Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the [rhema] word, • To water something means to nurture it and to give it life.
If you are in ministry, then it means that you should be watering the seeds that have been planted in the hearts of God’s people.
• This is primarily a teaching function, just as Apollos functioned in.
• 1 Corinthians 3:61 have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
Negative: Water that is bitter or dirty speaks of a contamination, likely stemming from bitterness.
• It speaks of those that really do have a ministry, but unfortunately are in deception. They have allowed some things in their life that are not of the Lord.
• To dream of being in unclean water speaks of the things you are getting involved in.
• Instead of walking in the spirit, by getting involved with these things or feeding on things that are not of God, you are contaminating your spirit.
• It could also indicate that the ministry you have been receiving is not pure and directly from the Lord. Some of it is tainted with the flesh and man’s ideas.
• When I train God’s leaders I share how the Lord takes them through training to get rid of their own ideas.
• The revelation and the anointing that God gives is pure when it comes from your spirit. However if your mind is filled with things of the world or your own ideas, you end up tainting that word. Then what comes out is only a part Christ, and the rest is your own ideas!

The meaning, of course, depends on the de- tails and the action, but as a general guide, clear calm water is a favorable omen, while rough or murky wa- ter signifies difficulties. A dream of drinking cold water is a! sign of good luck, but throwing or spill- ing it on anyone indicates a need to control your temper. Hot water (unless it is appropriate to the ac- tion) portends a season of social and/or business set- backs, but running water predicts lasting happiness. A waterfall in your dream forecasts a happy rise in status and/or an imminent increase in material wealth. Gently flowing water promises contentment and peace of mind.

(1) Water may symbolize emotion or psychic energy.
It is therefore important to notice whether the water is free-flowing or stagnant (or frozen: see Ice), clean or foul.
(2) Water is a common symbol of fertility, growth, creative potential (especially if it takes the form of a reservoir or still lake), new life, or healing.
(3) It is also a symbol of the unconscious, especially if it is deep.
(4) It is a feminine symbol, representing either your own femininity (whether you are male or female), or your mother.
It is therefore important to note your reaction to the water in your dream. Are you afraid of water in real life? This may mean you are afraid of women (if you are a man), of your mother, or of your unconscious.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
Psychology attributes water to the unconscious desire to return to our mother’s lap.
Water symbolizes life, feelings, fertility, and abundance. Thus, this type of dream plays an important role, though the meanings attributed to it vary. Water quality, therefore, reveals your emotional state.
If water is clear, your feelings are pure and you enjoy a blissfully peaceful period. But if it is muddy, you will suffer personal or health complications.
If there is water in the form of large ground-breaking waves, you might feel out control.
If it is a river, the flowing pace will express the calm or anguish of your emotions. Likewise, to see dirty and stagnant water reveals insincerity in your feelings.
If the water comes from a lake or a stream, it is indicative of emotional passivity. Similarly, fine rain is usually a symbol of fertility, which predicts success in your projects. Heavy rains, however, announce unattended desires and disputes. (See BOAT, SHIPWRECK, and SHIP)
Water, depending on its condition, may portend very different situations. When fresh, it denotes fortune and health. Boiling: anger or illness. Mild: temporary discomfort. Muddy water indicates obstacles in business. Stagnant and putrid water: illness or death. Flowing water: good luck and good health. Saltwater portends tears. Looking at water ensures safety from a danger. Bathing is a sign of innocence. To pour it: litigation. Walking on water represents triumph. To see a spring: improvement of a distressing situation. The water of a bathtub means happy old age.
WATER - analysis of the dream
Lucia dreamed: “I was sunbathing on a paradisiacal island of fine sand and crystalline waters. The sun was warming my body up while I was listening to the waves gently lapping. I felt really good, confident, and happy. Suddenly, I saw a huge wave coming, and before I could react, it invaded the whole beach. The sky turned black and a strong storm completely changed the landscape. At that point, there was no island, no sand, no firm land, and I was floating in the water frightened. I suddenly remembered that I did not know how to swim.”
When Lucia had this dream she had just begun an affair with a man; she had long been in love with him. The calm sea and the idyllic landscape reflected her confidence and initial joy. However, the water fiercely flooding the beach was warning her against the risk of drowning due to excessive enthusiasm. Any dream in which the water is stagnant is a warning sign indicating that we should give more freedom to our emotions. In Lucia’s case, the sea flowing freely—first in gentle waves and then stormy—is an indication that she was letting her feelings blossom.
By analogy of uterus and birth, dreams in which water appears may relate to feeling like getting ready for a new life or the desire to change old habits. The island represents Lucia’s individualism, her independent and safe live that was threatened by the arrival of romance and the overflowing torrent of emotions that it implied. The effect of drowning announced a condition of emotional tension due to a new situation.
Water is the ultimate symbol of emotions in a dream. It also connects to things that rise up out of the unconscious mind. In fact, it could be said that emotions themselves are evidence of something that is occurring in the unconscious mind. In this way, water connects to both emotions and the unconscious. Human beings are made up of a great deal of water, and the welling up of feelings can cause this precious liquid to leak inexplicably out of your eyes in the form of tears. In this way, the presence of any water in a dream is asking you to consider the emotional side of your nature.
The larger the body of water, the more feelings the dream is expressing.
If the water is potentially overwhelming or dangerous, as in a tidal wave or waterfall, then the sense of danger must be added to your interpretation, as we are often afraid of feelings when they are greater than we think we can handle. Feelings flow and so does water, so the quality of movement of the water in your dream is pointing out the way in which you are experiencing your emotions.
A slow creek is like a small amount of emotional flow that is significant but sustaining and calming.
A raging river is more like the force of feelings that are much more intense and, if not navigated well, can be dangerous to your sense of well-being. Rain is the most like tears, and weather patterns in dreams that involve water may be pointing out the way you are experiencing or avoiding the easy flow of emotions associated with some current life experience....
