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

If it the river is static, your unconscious may have been commenting on your lack of drive and direction.
If you threw a stone in the river, did the ripples that formed echo your sense of going around in circles in waking life? The river depicts the richness or poverty of your life energy, so if you are crossing a river in your dream, this suggests you are in the process of making great changes in your life.
If you are in the water to cross, it means you will feel a lot of emotions in the process of change.
If you see someone else cross the river or fall into the river, this may refer to your feelings about aging and the passage of time.
If the river is contaminated, this suggests that you are holding back your feelings in waking life and not doing the best you can for yourself.
If you were in a river—or steamboat in your dream, this may refer to the circumstances that surround you, for example your family or home life. The context of the dream and how you feel will all help you with the interpretation. Was the boat solid and safe like a steamer, or fragile like a canoe or a dingy?
Canals, dams and reservoirs are all designed to regulate water flow and in dreams they suggest conscious attempts to control emotion; how effective they are at directing the water mirrors how effective you have become at controlling your emotions in waking life. A canal may also symbolize the birth canal and thus represent a desire for children. Because reservoirs are where water is collected and stored, if one features in your dream, could it be commenting on your own emotional reserves? The water level of the reservoir in this dream is important.
If it is high, your emotional resources are abundant but if it is low, you may be feeling emotionally drained by the demands of others. In dreams, dams also suggest control over your emotions, and their effectiveness in your dream will say a lot about your emotional health. If, in your dream, you were standing on a bridge watching the water flow beneath you, you could be ready to leave the past behind—as suggested by water under the bridge—since you are at a turning point in your life (the bridge is a symbol of transition).

In dreams, lakes are symbols of the unconscious. What lurks beneath the water? If you dream of fishing, swimming or sailing on the lake, this can suggest contentment; if you are drowning, this suggests anxiety. For Jung, a lake, like the sea and the river, is a symbol of the mother archetype. A dream pond can suggest hidden depths. When you see a swamp in your dream, it is referring to a part of your life that is dark and hidden, or to something that is holding you back.
If you see a marsh, this may refer to anxieties that undermine your confidence in waking life. A spring is an image of beginnings and, as such, it symbolizes maternity in dreams as well as purity and clear, clean water.
According to Freudians, the image can suggest joyful sexuality. Jungians might see dreams springs as an image of the inner life or spiritual beginnings. A waterfall unites images of female and male sexuality with the foam of the tumbling waters evocative of the sensations of orgasm. Alternatively, the turbulence of the waterfall can represent powerful changes in your life. See also ELEMENTS; PLACES.... The Element Encyclopedia

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

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....

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.

If the water in the river appears to be contaminated we are not doing the best we can for ourselves.

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.

Stagnant water: Something, often a situation, that is unhealthy for you to the point where it causes a standstill in personal growth and in your quest for wholeness.
Shallow water represents a similarly frivolous personality that avoids delving into any aspect of life too deeply. Alternatively, this can represent a fear of confronting the depths of your own suhconscious.
Tidal waves: Powerful emotions or instincts that you have let build up to a critical mass. This dream reveals the need to express those things before they come crashing over the floodgates.
Surfing on water: Taking control of, and accepting the power in, the feminine aspects of self and the Universe. Also maintaining a rather haphazard balance between the intuitive nature (the water) and the conscious self (the surfer).

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!

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 - 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.
... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
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....
