The flood in your dream, therefore, may signify both a need for personal reconstruction and that the only way your new and true self can come into existence is through the ‘death’ of the old self - or, rather, of those things (negative attitudes, lopsidedness or whatever) that have been hindering the unfolding of your true self.

If you dream of being drowned, it suggests you are in danger of being overwhelmed by emotions you cannot handle or that you are fearful of allowing your emotions free expression. Drowning may also indicate an inability to handle stress and a feeling that you have no control. The natural disasters of flooding, tsunami and drought indicate great hardship for the dreamer, but they also offer hope. For example, if you dream that you are immersed in rising water or that your house is flooded, this indicates the emergence of a personal crisis. However, if adequate precautions are put in place, or you heed warning signs of impending disaster, it is possible to avert or overcome the disaster. Similarly, a dream in which you endure a drought portends misfortune, and scant reward for your effort, but the dreamer can take comfort that this difficult time will pass, leaving you wiser and better prepared for any future crises with which life may surprise you.
Tidal waves or tsunamis often represent a cascade of emotion or impending change in your life. It is not unusual for someone struggling with a tough situation, such as the loss of a job, illness in the family and so on, to dream of being threatened by a tidal wave. A tidal wave in this instance depicts the emotional devastation that occurs when situations change in unexpected, or unwanted, ways. Whether the wave represents emotion, change, or something or someone else, to you the implication is that you are in the thick of it now and you have little to gain by running away or denying it. Your best approach is to ride the wave, accept that you feel overwhelmed for a while, but know that this isn’t permanent as the storm will run its course and you’ll emerge wiser and stronger.
Famine and drought dreams can also indicate that you are emotionally drained in waking life.
