BOAT

(Ferry; Ferryboat; Fireboat; Fishing boat; Ship; Star) In a dream, a fishing boat represents profits and benefits.

To sail on an unknown boat or to pilot a boat or to give orders to sailors who are operating it in a dream means marriage to a woman from a country to which the boat belongs, or it could mean doing business in that land.

To ride on a ferryboat in a dream means receiving God’s benevolence and kindness in crossing over danger.

A boat in a dream also represents one’s relatives. Thus, whatever atmospheric conditions the skies exhibits during the crossing or during a journey by boat, they will manifest in one’s family. In a dream, a fireboat means dispelling anxieties, overcoming distress and adversities.

BOAT

As mentioned in all relevant dream symbols, bodies of water represent your unconscious, your emotions and your accumulated soul experiences. Depending on the content of the dream, several different interpretations could be made.

The boat in your dream could represent you and the manner you navigate through your emotions. It could symbolize the voyage of your life, an adventure and exploration of your unconscious, or a connection to the people in your dream by pointing out something that all of you have in common (in the same boat). When interpreting this dream, consider the kind of voyage and the type of boat. Superstition-based dream interpretation books say that if the voyage is calm, you should go forward with your plans. However, if it is a very stormy voyage, get ready for an emotional upset (or challenge). ...But O the ship, the immortal ship! O ship aboard the ship!

BOAT

(see Anchor, Water)

Potential and opportunity-.

The proximity of the ship indicates either how aware you are of the possibilities, or how long it will be before they manifest.

Your health. Like other vehicles (see by type), the condition of the boat may inform you about your physical status.

For example, the lack of wind could equate to lung problems like asthma.

Adventure, and the yearning for same. In Arabia, the Corsairs were people who lived and died by the sea, and reveled in the freedom and challenges the open water offered.

Transitions and movement. This could indicate concern over a forthcoming change in residence or status.

Stagnant or anchored: W brry that your life isn’t moving the way you feel it should.

The feeling that everything is at a standstill.

Sailing without you: Either missed opportunity, or a type of desertion dream.

Life’s voyage and new horizons. Like Columbus locating America, you are embarking on a voyage of self-discovery.

Taking a journey by boat may equate to literal or figurative death, as ferries and boats figure heavily into myths of how the spirit goes from one existence to the next.... The Language of Dreams

BOAT

Symbol: The boat is a symbol of your personality, pan of what you need in order to move forward in the ocean of life!

Vision: Seeing a boat means a trip or a change in life.

If the water is clear, things are destined to go well. Murky water means misfortune or a mishap on a trip or in your life. Getting hit by a storm while riding in a boat—or falling out of a boat: postpone a planned trip or action. See Ship.

Depth Psychology: Seeing a boat in a dream is a sign that your life is about to change. Since a boat usually is in the water, the dream mean that you feel you’re on “shaky ground.” A boat, like the Auto, Train, or Airplane might be a symbol of your life’s journey.

The condition of the “transport device” will show you what your actual situation is. In Greek mythology, the boat is a symbol of the journey “to the other side,” to the “dominion of the dead”—or a symbol of your journey into a new phase of life. See Water.... Dreamers Dictionary

BOAT

In ancient times, boats were worshiped in Mesopotamia, Crete, and Egypt, as they were associated with certain deities. In oneiric terms, boats symbolize the ability to communicate with people who, by the way they think, feel, or live, are far from you. So, dreaming that you take a boat trip heralds the beginning of a new phase of your life or a new relationship. By contrast, a sinking ship warns against a breakup. Boats can also represent a journey through your emotions. Depending on the condition and status of the water, the meaning changes.

If it is agitated it means that you feel tense about your feelings.

If it is calm you are working calmly. And in the case you lose the boat you may have lost an exceptional opportunity. (See WATER, SHIP, and SHIPWRECK)

In mythology it is said that boats are the means to go from one world to another. Given its symbolism, this dream shows the passage between personal stages. You may be conducting a decisive change in your life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

BOAT

You may be skimming the surface of deep emotional issues below the surface. Any vehicle in a dream refers us to our paths in life.

A boat travels over water, the universal symbol for anything that deals with the emotions.

The size and type of boat in your dream will illuminate your current ability to navigate emotional issues based on resources and levels of skill.

The water itself connects with the nature of the emotional territory in which you currently find yourself.

The destination of your trip will offer insight into what may be causing an upsurge of emotion and what you hope the outcome will be if you are successful in arriving at your intended destination.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

To dream of a sailboat is to be complacent However, if it is in stormy seas, then you are going to find yourself extremely busy.

A sailboat is also a means of transport and, as such, should be considered as another form of symbolizing spiritual progression. It would be of a lighter, almost dilettante form.

A steamship, another method of transportation, would be a slow but steady form.

BOAT, SHIP

Our journey through the seas of life and how we meet the rough and smooth experiences, as with following example.

The dream occurred a few weeks before a break­down centering on the dreamer’s wife leaving him. ‘I am in a large glass boat with my wife.

The sea is very rough and I am afraid the boat will sink’ (Ron D).

Many boat/ship dreams depict something else: a situation we are involved in with other people which is difficult to get out of, such as marriage, business partnership, armed forces. Keel: basic personal strengths. Bows: one’s strength to meet life’s changes. Rudder: sureness about direction in life.

The ship sinking : fear of relationship ending—could be children leaving mother, so the collective ‘boat journey’ has finished; illness; death. Leaving boat but leaving bag on it: lack of identity, alone—perhaps when children have gone or job ended. Lots of small boats: other people’s relationships. Small boat with one other person: one’s relationship with that per­son. Going on a cruise: desiring relationship with others, or to be a pan of other people’s lives. Boat journey by night: classic archetype of searching for one’s roots in life; the journey into the unconscious. Anchored boat: security; stable relationship; opposite of drifting. Motorboat: similar to car, but more sense of isolation or aloneness. Ferryboat: if across a river, death, end of a relationship; transition from one phase of life to another. Disembarking: leaving a phase of life, such as moth­erhood or marriage. Embarking alone: independence or lone­liness. Idioms: burn one’s boats; in the same boat; miss the boat; rock the boat; ships that pass in the night; ship comes in; a tight ship. See submarine. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

BOATS

Boats in our dreams ride on the waves and the surface of the subconscious, so they are connected to the emotional and creative currents of life.

BOATS

It will depend on what kind of boat is in the dream as to its interpretation.

A ferry or piloted boat holds all the symbolism of the journey across the river styx after death. Today it signifies the giving up of selfish desires. Having been able to do this, we may be ‘reborn’ into a better life, or way of living.

A small rowing boat would suggest an expedition of emotional discovery but one often undertaken alone.

A yacht might suggest a similar journey done with style, whereas a large ship would suggest creating new horizons but in the company of others. Early seafarers referred to their ships as ‘she’ largely, it is thought, because of the close dependence they had on them for life and because they were difficult to manage. Today ships have lost that personal association. What a boat does in the dream will have relevance as a reflection of our waking life, e.G. Running aground, pulling into harbour etc.

To dream of disembarking indicates the end of a project, successful or otherwise.

If we dream of missing a boat it shows we have not paid enough attention to detail to a project in our waking lives. Also consult the individual entry for boat / ship.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

BOATS

(1) Because of their connections with water, boats may symbolize (some aspect of) the feminine, either with a plainly sexual reference or with reference to the unconscious (in the case of a male dreamer, the reference may be specifically to the anima), or with reference to mother or Great Mother. See also Mother.

(2) Leaying one’s own shores for a foreign country may symbolize entry into the unconscious insofar as the latter is unknown and frightening - alien, in fact.

(3) If the boat is crossing a narrow stretch of water, it may symbolize death or some other transition: for example, moving from one phase of life to another, or making a new start and a clean break from the past. See also Dead / Death, Ferry.

(4) If in the dream you miss the boat, the meaning would seem to be obvious: you have failed to take advantage of an opportunity that has offered itself - perhaps an opportunity to open new vistas in your life.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

LIFE AND DEATH STRUGGLE

The struggle for survival in dreamland is reflected in symbols such as quicksand, dangerous animals, wildfire, war and enemies; these all suggest the need to find a kind of security that cannot be taken away from you.

If you are prone to life-and-death struggles in your dreams, your dreaming mind is telling you that there is only one way to find the security that cannot be lost: you need to place value on things that are not material, as everything else is at risk. The things that cannot be lost reside in your heart and your spirit. This doesn’t mean you should stop focusing on the material in life; it simply means that you need to find peace and contentment by being more flexible and tolerant in waking life....

If you dream of a life jacket, you are connecting to whatever will keep you safe while you ride out some difficult emotional experience.

LIFE-AND-DEATH STRUGGLE

Life-and-death struggles are common in dreams, but in some cases these dreams end with a struggle to avoid catastrophe. These are the sorts of dream in which almost every stranger turns out to be an enemy. Even the landscape of these dreams is laden with death traps, sharp ravines, wild fires, dangerous animals and so on.

If you have this kind of dream, the chances are you are fighting for survival in some aspect of your waking life. On the other hand, you may be the kind of person who makes ordinary choices and decisions as if their survival were at stake. For example, small disappointments or minor upsets send you into meltdown and you are frequently dissatisfied if some invisible inner standard has not been met.

If you are prone to life-and-death dreams, your unconscious is urging you to find a kind of security that cannot be lost. In other words, you need to look at things that are intangible and reside in your spirit and in your emotions, because everything else—since it is out of your control—is at risk. You need to develop greater flexibility and tolerance, and by so doing you can find contentment and peace.

If your life-and-death battle involves a war scene, the emphasis shifts.

Despite war’s disturbing and destructive nature, it can sometimes be represented as a cleansing process that represents a victory of good over evil. However, in dreams war is generally regarded as a warning that dangerous times lie ahead, as well as indicating inner conflicts and deep-seated grievances. An important aid for interpreting dreams of warfare is to remember whether you were on the winning or losing side.

If you were on the winning side, this suggests you are on the right track.

If you were on the losing side, what can you learn from the tactics of the winning side? Surprisingly, to dream that you are wounded in battle denotes that you have finally been accepted by your peers.... The Element Encyclopedia

Remember that no one is going to take you by the hand and lead you step by step along the way. If you want insight, ask and you will receive. But you must make your own choices and decisions. It is your life. You are the writer, producer, and director, and you are playing all the roles. Create  whatever you want. You have total freedom. It is only your thoughts that limit you. Your dream symbols help you look at the very thought patterns that are governing your life. Dreams take you to a higher level of consciousness and understanding which has the power to transform your life and your world. The whole purpose is to see objectively the life situations you are creating, survey the limitations and obstacles imposed through your own beliefs, and understand how best to work around or eliminate them. As you work on your own growth, all others will benefit; they will see your light, your knowledge and your truth.  ... Dreampedia

MAST (OF A SAILBOAT)

Vision: Looking at a mast: you have accomplished an enormous task and should be proud of yourself. You can start on a new project now.

If the mast is without sails: you still have hard work ahead before reaching the goal you have set for yourself.

A mast under sail means everything is going well. See Ship, Tree.

Depth Psychology: A mast is either a phallic symbol (and therefore about sexual desire) or a sign of a strong personality. You are walking with your head held high on a straight and narrow path. You won’t bend for anything.... Dreamers Dictionary

RELATIONSHIP DREAMS AT DIFFERENT STAGES OF YOUR LIFE

Dreams about relationships are extremely common. This is because the health and survival of your relationships is a primary goal for your unconscious; in your dreams it constantly reviews your relationship options, mulls things over and tries to identify what went wrong and how to do things better. It may also give you a glimpse of how different things might be if you married someone else, had an affair or got divorced.

Although the following dreams can occur at any stage of your life, you may find that the focus of your relationship dreams shifts during your lifespan. In your teenage years, dream scenarios in which you are suddenly thrown together with someone to whom you are attracted are very common. The goal of the dream is to help you determine if someone is or is not interested in you in waking life. By the mid-twenties, however, relationship dreams move beyond initial attraction and begin to explore who is or is not right for us. This is the time when strangers, celebrities and friends tend to appear as dream lovers and partners. You may find the images shocking but it is important to bear in mind that the images are unlikely to represent the real person and more likely to represent qualities that you are evaluating.

During your thirties and forties, romantic dreams focus on explanations for why relationships may have disappointed in the past and offer dreams that can show you what to go after or avoid in the future. Dreams in which your current partner or lover is unfaithful are extremely common at this time; it is as if your dreaming mind is urging you to pay attention to your relationship, and secure or safeguard what you have.

During your fifties and sixties, dreams shift their focus onto things you have learned to value in your life. Past and present partners become shorthand symbols for the quality or experience you had with them. For example, your first lover represents passion and excitement or the partner who was unfaithful represents someone who cannot be trusted. Although you may dream of people from your past, your dreaming mind is using them as symbols to refer to your current relationships. From your seventies onwards, dreams are more likely to zoom in on the very nature of love itself to help you gain a deeper understanding of love and affairs of the heart.... The Element Encyclopedia

STAGES OF LIFE

In his 1930 essay ‘Stages of Life’, Jung postulated four stages of life— childhood, youth, middle age and old age—based on his own clinical observations.

He viewed youth as a period of expanding consciousness, middle age as a period of questioning long-held convictions, and old age as a period of increased introspection and preoccupation with self-evaluation. According to Jung, dreams are important tools of self-discovery for you, whatever your age or life stage.

This is because in every stage of your life you will face many challenges: emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical. These challenges can trigger fascinating dreams, some of which can help you to meet those challenges and pass on to the next phase of your development.

Jung believed that what prevents people from becoming independent, fulfilled and ultimately happy is their refusal to open themselves to change or to new and unfamiliar experiences that potentially threaten their sense of self. His approach to finding balance in every stage of life was through the analysis of dreams and a process he called ‘individuation’. Dreams are a powerful tool for self-discovery and individuation is a self-analysis, a self-discovery, a way of analysing your own reactions and responses at every life stage so you can discover what truths lie underneath your conscious and egocentric personality.

In this chapter you will explore dreams that are believed to be typical of distinct life stages; some dream analysts refer to them as ‘developmental dreams’. This is because they seem particularly to reflect the typical stresses, questions and issues you may face at specific times in your life. This makes sense as you would expect the dreams you had when you were fifteen to reflect the concerns of your life as a teenager, just as you would expect the dreams you have now to have evolved into a mirror of your current situation and age group. Bear in mind, however, that how the stresses and challenges of your current life stage is represented in the dream world depends upon your personal circumstances, your sleep patterns and your ability to remember your dreams.

Bear in mind, too, that it is possible to have any one of these dreams even if you don’t fit the life-stage profile that coincides with it.

Dreams of death will also be explored in this chapter, as death is the final stage or change that comes to us all. Although dreams of death may explore your feelings about death or represent potential you may have missed or not expressed in general, dream analysts believe that such dreams represent the ending of one phase so a new one can begin. They reveal forthcoming finalities such as the end of a relationship or career and should not be interpreted literally. Because in the past we were terrified at the idea of death, it also represents upheaval, calamity and the sense that things will never be the same again. It was something that could only be endured but never be understood. Today, as our attitudes towards death have changed, death in a dream represents a challenge that cannot be avoided and which must be confronted if progress is to be made in waking life.

The message is that some approach or attitude to life needs to be changed or adjusted; if you can find the courage to make that adjustment successfully, there can be a fresh start or a new beginning.

THE TREE OF LIFE

Spiritually and in dreams, the tree is a symbol of the Tree of Life; an ancient idea common to many cultures and mythologies. Often regarded as an all-nourishing, all-giving Mother, many myths speak of the Tree of Life or World Tree as involved in the creation of the universe.

Britain was once covered by mighty oak, lime and pine forests, and reverence for trees is a major feature within Celtic religion, reflecting a link between the upper and lower worlds. Druids had their teaching center in the midst of oak groves, and the words for wood and wisdom are similar (Welsh gwydd and gwyddon). The Celtic Tree of Life is one of the most popular and enduring motifs of Celtic art, found both on Northumbrian and Celtic crosses and on illuminated manuscripts. It is also portrayed variously as the Golden Bough, vine, or mistletoe. The ancient Celts envisioned the cosmos in the form of a great tree, whose roots were deep in the earth and whose branches stretched to the heavens.

The Celtic Tree of Life is therefore a symbol of balance between these worlds; the unification of above and below; a symbol of balance and harmony. Its branches and roots form a map of the cosmos wherein all things are interwoven and connected; it dwells in three worlds—a link between heaven, earth and the underworld. In dreams the appearance of the Tree of Life or any kind of tree can therefore be a powerful symbol of harmony, success, integration and fulfillment.

These can be achieved in waking life when there is a union between the material and the spiritual, and the feminine and masculine aspects of your personality.... The Element Encyclopedia

TYPICAL DREAMS OF LATER LIFE

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.

YGGDR ASIL (THE WORLD TREE, ORTREE OFLIFE)

(see Trees)

Creation and subsequent nourishment or support of what was created. In many myths, including Mayan, Norse, Indian, and Saxon, a special tree was part of humankind’s origins and the world’s beginning, its roots reaching out and feeding the earth.

The ability to communicate effectively. This is especially true if the tree’s leaves are rustling. In India specifically, the gift of language was provided to humankind through the World Tree’s leaves, each of which had a mantra written upon it.

Renewed life, health, wisdom, and knowledge. In Eden, the central tree bore the fruit of knowledge. In Celtic tradition, the Goddess’s trees in Avalon bore apples that granted longevity’. Finally, in Asia, the Tree of Life has mantras that must be gathered by the souls of the dead to assure their reincarnation.... The Language of Dreams
