BOAT / SHIP

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.

A lifeboat is not transportation per se. so it may symbolize a need to escape; trying to get out of a difficult situation. See also individual boat types... Gypsy Dream Dictionary

SHIP

An oneiric ship can represent our life course and, depending on how it appears, will reveal the state of our mind.

If it is a cruise ship, the dream alludes to the pleasant calm that you are going through.

If it is a warship, you may be showing too much aggression. The appearance of a lifeboat at the scene indicates your need to escape a storm of feelings and problems in real life. If, however, is a submarine, the dream indicated your desire to explore the unconscious. On the other hand, ships also symbolize the ability to communicate with people who are far away, whether geographically or in their way of thinking and feeling. For this reason, a journey by sea means you have begun a new life stage or a new relationship. By contrast, in this sense, a ship that sinks warns of the danger of a breakup. (See WATER, BOAT, and SHIPWRECK)

A ship docked at the pier or sailing a calm sea predicts great happiness in love.

If you dream that there is a storm, this happiness will be delayed. In the case of a shipwreck, you will receive bad news.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

DREAMS THAT FORETELL ACCIDENTS

A number of well-recorded dreams have appeared to foretell accidents and some researchers believe that accidents in dreams are a warning. Research, however, does not support the idea that dreams predict impending disaster. See also DISASTERS.

The story of the SS Titanic is well known. On 14 April 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sunk in the North Atlantic, carrying with her more than 1500 lives. The lack of sufficient lifeboats has often been blamed as the leading cause of fatalities; experts will tell you, however, that there were hundreds of causes leading to the accident, including everything from faulty construction of watertight compartments to a failure to pay attention to numerous warnings of icebergs in the area. What is important here, however, is the huge number of accident dreams that foretold this disaster.

Immediately after the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic, there were at least two dozen reports of people who cancelled their trip because of precognitive dreams they had about the sinking. No one knows how many had the same warning and ignored it, going to a death they could have avoided. There is one businessman that had the same precognitive dream of the Titanic sinking three times and chose to ignore the warning. He still intended to make the trip, until a sudden turn in business forced him to cancel.... The Element Encyclopedia

ABANDONMENT / FEAR / LOSS OF CONTROL

Dream images connected to feelings of abandonment, fear and loss of control all have some form of conflict as their theme. For example, dreams about missing a bus, train or airplane all point to some kind of tension in the dreamer about failing to achieve a goal. Dreams about being abandoned or left alone by a group of loved ones suggest feelings of anxiety about being left out, or being different from the crowd. Anxiously searching for the right road or path could point to fears about losing your identity.

If you are happily wandering alone in your dream, this may suggest a feeling that the source of your problems lies outside yourself. Dreams about anchors and lifeboats also tell of the fight for survival in daily life.

If you dream of being lost in dense vegetation, towering trees or tall reeds, you may feel that your progress is being thwarted by obstacles. As in the tale of ‘Hansel and Gretel’, this dream may evoke longing for the comfort and warmth of home.... The Element Encyclopedia

DIVING / DROWNING / FLOATING / SWIMMING

Dreams of diving, floating and swimming usually hint at your current emotional state or the need to tap into the resources of your unconscious mind.

If you are diving into water in your dream, this represents trying to find parts of yourself that have been repressed.

Dreams in which you are floating in warm water safely and calmly are amongst the most comforting and secure you can have. They may reflect a longing to be able to coast effortlessly through life, letting worries wash over you. But if you felt uneasy, such dreams may be mirroring your concern that you lack direction and power in waking life, and are just treading water as opportunities fly past you.

If you have a dream in which you are swimming calmly and happily through calm waters, this suggests a positive attitude to your waking life, as things are going well, or ‘swimmingly’, for you, and you feel in your element, be it at school, work or home. If, however, you dream that you are struggling against a current, it suggests inner conflict and the force of opinion against you in the waking world. In your dream, did you swim with the tide or continue with your struggle? If you found yourself out of your depth when you went swimming, this may mirror a sense of being out of your emotional depth. Drowning suggests that your emotions are overwhelming and engulfing you.

If a lifeboat appears, you believe your unconscious can throw you an emotional lifeline.

Where water is contained in a space, such as a bath or swimming pool, it signifies controlled emotion and restraint. A dream shower or bath in which you wash yourself may refer to a need to cleanse your emotions of negative influences, whilst a Jacuzzi may have sexual connotations. Being in a swimming pool may remind you of the importance of relaxation. A surreal underwater scene, in which you meet and interact with family and friends, may suggest that you have been too busy to take the time to connect emotionally with loved ones. It might be wise to slow down and devote more quality time to them in the real world.... The Element Encyclopedia

INSECURITY

There may be areas of your waking life in which you feel insecure or unsure of yourself. You may be aware of some of these areas but in other cases you may be repressing your anxiety. Repressing any emotion is damaging and to grow stronger emotionally you should try to recognize and understand it. Dreams can help you with this process. Dreams in which you missed a bus or plane or miss an appointment may be reflecting your fear of being late. They may also be suggesting feelings of uncertainty in your waking life.

If someone makes you late, that person may be part of the reason for your insecurity.

If you are angry with yourself in your dream, you may be angry with yourself about missing opportunities in waking life.

Any dream in which your safety is threatened by natural disasters, such as floods, storms or earthquakes, may be a sign of feelings of insecurity in waking life. Scan your dream for any clues as to who or what is dragging you down, killing you or giving you reason to hope. Is there a lighthouse, lifeboat or coastguard in sight? Dreams in which you are abroad and unable to understand the language or culture are classic symbols of uncertainty about new situations in your waking life, as are dreams in which you are constantly outbid in an auction. Try to identify what you were bidding for as it might help you understand what is worrying or bothering you. Dreams in which you consult a therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor or fortune teller are telling you that you are not feeling as in control of a particular situation in your waking life as you feel you ought to. You may also feel unsure about who to turn to for advice.... The Element Encyclopedia
