The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

Waves represents the threatening and sometimes stormy activity of the conscious, but also symbolizes a transcendent, open, and expressive emotion. To notice that you are being carried away by the waves indicates a passive attitude toward the circumstances, as minutiae easily distract you from your goals. By contrast, choppy waves announce a possible emotional conflict. Everything indicates that will jealousy and envy arise, and that aggressive outburst could occur at any time. However, this situation will be temporary. On the other hand, to dream that you walk over the waves predicts you will overcome the obstacles that separate you from your goal. (See WATER, LAKE, and SEA)

Dreams of waves denote, according to some superstitions, a need for inner cleansing.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

The waves in dreams may represent emotional fluctuations.

If you are currently experiencing a period of tranquillity and peace, you may be dreaming about calm waters and gentle ocean waves. This dream suggests that you may be gathering energy and recharging emotionally. However, more commonly people dream of violent and dangerous tidal waves. Tidal waves or tsunamis suggest a period of emotional upheaval. Anxiety, stress, and unconscious materials may be coming to the surface and affecting your daily moods. Giant tidal waves may symbolize current emotional unhappiness and psychological stress, which are threatening to destroy you.

The outcome of this dream may reveal how much strength you have to “ride out” personal storms.

For example, surviving the tidal wave suggests that you have enough strength to overcome challenges and drowning that you may be “in it over your head” and should seek assistance.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To dream of waves, is a sign that you hold some vital step in contemplation, which will evolve much knowledge if the waves are clear; but you will make a fatal error if you see them muddy or lashed by a storm. See Ocean and Sea.

Turbulence in life.

Expansions Dream Dictionary | Stewart A. Swerdlow

Water is a common symbol for the emotions. Waves, being either smooth or violent, may therefore indicate either emotional calm or emotional turbulence.

Dream Symbols in The Dream Encyclopedia | James R. Lewis and Evelyn Dorothy Oliver

When dreaming of waves, notice the type of wave. Calm, clear waves indicate inner peace of mind. You are in touch with your emotions and are stable. Calm waves may also foreshadow upcoming decisions in your waking life. Crashing waves, especially when heard, indicates your sexual nature and your need to be loving and tender with your significant other. Violent, unclear waves imply you have made a poor choice regarding an important matter. Finally, if you are caught in an undertow or tidal wave, you have been holding yourself back. Something in your waking life has brought unshed tears to your eyes, what is it?

Dream Symbols and Analysis | DreamForth

Energy moves in waves, and any dream that features this motion is connected to the fundamental structure behind all movement. Waves in water are about emotional fluctuations. Waves that are more related to the physical laws of the universe are similar, but are more about thoughts and shifts of intellect. When waves are easy to navigate, all is well, as you can easily allow yourself to move with them. However, they can suddenly become overwhelming in the dream world, and if this occurs, you are examining your relationship to things beyond your ability to control.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

Tumultuous people or a stormy period in your life, Ps. 65:7, Jer. 51:42. Waves are also symbolic of false doctrine, trickery, and deceit, Eph. 4:14.

A wave may also be symbolic of a move of the Holy Spirit

Being carried away by emotions (Water), being transported by and giving in to the existing Rhythm. See Sailboat. Here the power of the Winds, as well as the intellect, is used for moving forward. This is also often an expression of fear about going under, in the sense that the Head would be submerged under Water (similar to fear of emotional chaos, as in Swamp). This is also a sexual and virility symbol (“Surfers do it standing up”). See Captain, Admiral.... Little Giant Encyclopedia
