Dream Dictionary Boat Sinking

In order to have a good framework for understanding what it means to see a boat sinking in your dreams, you need to first understand what a boat symbolizes and what the water symbolizes in a dream. The water symbolizes both the mind and the soul and the culmination of those two things into what we call emotions. The water is basically a metaphor, in our dreams, for our own emotions, and a boat is our own ability to cross through those emotions and to navigate our own feelings. Sometimes it can seem like a real chore to go through that and it can be really hard to have to keep your emotions in check sometimes, but we do it for the sake of those around us that cannot be forced to suffer through all of our emotional outbursts all the time even though this is sort of the situation that we force them into really pretty often. But that is beside the point, time to get down to brass tacks.

When you dream that your boat is sinking, this is a sign that you have tried and failed to control your emotions. Have you been getting uncontrollably angry lately? Have you been having outbursts of tears or have you been oddly laughing at inappropriate situations. All of these things might happen to you if you have been unable to control yourself lately and the image of a boat sinking in your dreams should be suggestive of that.

If you dream of your boat sinking this is a sign that you need to try harder in the future to control the way you feel. You have not been able to handle yourself the way that you should. Even though sometimes it can be a good thing to express your emotions, when you see a boat sinking in your dreams this is a sign that what you have been doing lately is not the good or constructive kind of emotional expression. You have gone beyond the realm of mere expression and these are now being translated into outbursts. You simply cannot keep control of yourself any longer.

The best dream to have would be one in which you are sailing across a placid ocean. A placid sea is one that shows calm. Your emotions are calm ones and it means that you can rest easy. A turbulent sea means you are having emotional troubles on the inside and as long as your boat stays intact then these emotions will be kept on the inside. They will begin to leak out once your boat sinks, so you would do best not to let this happen to you overall.

To dream that your boat is sinking in a placid sea for some reason, shows that you have a weak constitution. Even though the waters of life have not been particularly testy for you, you are still finding some reason to act as if they are, and it is holding you back. It would be unimaginable to think of what would happen if you were to go through an actual emotional crisis. It would be too much to bear for you and it might break you entirely. Do not let this happen to yourself, you canít afford it.

I had a nightmare that the ship I was on was sinking, it was all really frantic and real and scary. As the ship was going down and I'd just gone underwater but was holding onto the edge, something huge smashed me on the head and everythjng went black and I could tell that I'd died in my dream!

My dream was we were on a huge ship like the Titanic, and their was 200 passengers.I don`t remember who it started, however I just woke up from that dream. What`s strange is I remember the ship having the man i`m in love with on it, the ship was like my school and it had everyone from my school on it, but I only remember seeing my love on the boat and this bully from my past, they were the only 2 people I knew, so I didn`t see any of my friends etc. Anyway before the ship started sinking I remember seeing my love walk away from everyone looking angry, so I followed him through my school. I found him sat with some lads in my year, but I didn`t know them. Currently at school he`s been saying that he can`t stand his friends and wants a change he also he got dumped by his girlfriend which made him very upset.

Anyway before the ship started sinking I saw him sat with some boys looking like he was about to cry, I felt really horrible.In my dream I was about to text him, then everything just disappeared and this boat had almost sunk. The stage of the boat starting to sink didn`t happen and there was no reason for it. Anyway there were 12 survivors with me, they were people I didn`t know but we couldn`t get out. Everyone was pulling at the ceiling panels hoping to get in the room higher. No one from my school was on the boat, and while in the dream I forgot about my love and all the people at my school, I only realised they weren`t there when i woke up.
One of the roof panels came lose, so we all pulled at that one, it ripped off and everyone started to crawl through. The person I acknowledged was this black man, who had pulled the panel off, for some strange I only noticed him and didn`t even look at anyone else. We all got through the whole and the very top of the ship, it was like one of those outside things with swimming pools. To get there we had to swim through the captains place, with all the gear etc and through this very tiny window at the front.

The ship hadn`t sunk fully it had just randomly stopped, so we had just that part we were on free from the sea. The captain of the boat was stood in front of us just glaring at us, the black guy kept clapping and saying "praise the lord that we still live" and "well 12 survivors out of 200 isn`t bad, at least it`s not like the Titanic where like 22 people survived out of 1,000" Everyone kept laughing and cheering, but I watched the captains face look horrified at this. I knew something was wrong. The captain pulled a device from behind her back, it was a control panel with just a big red button on it. She said "This isn`t over". She pressed the button, and the whole ship blew up, however we weren`t on it, we were stood on the loading bay of an underground base, with the ship a few 100 meters away. I don`t know how we got off the boat and onto the strip, anyway the ship blew up and then another charge went off and sent off another explosion. Everyone started to scream as I looked for a way out, and for some strange reason there was a tiny hole pointing up, I didn`t think twice I just crawled through it, ignoring everyone else, when I reached the end of the hole the sea was in front of me. I jumped and started swimming as fast as possible, the base blew up and fell sideways just missing me, the forced of the fall hitting the water pulled me under, but somehow I managed to swim back up and jump on a life boat. 2 girls followed me, just before the base exploded and when the hit the water the base exploded and started to fall, the force pushed them down deeper, but they found one of those scuba jet things with a propeller that pulls you through water, they grabbed it and pointed it upwards, but the force of the base tipping into the water pulled the propeller to her face and it killed her (i won`t go into detail on that one). I don`t know what happened to the other girl. When the base exploded only 8 people had survived and they were screaming "we did it again". I was passed out in a life boat, that was drifting away. Then I woke up.

Please tell me what this means.

You cannot control emotions. You can control your actions and guide your thoughts but you cannot control emotions.
Also I think water can be a symbol for life not just emotions. So a sinking boat could also be symbolic of feeling like you're failing or overwhelmed in some category of life .

How mine went was that I was just suddenly on a ship that was going to sink. My roommates (like 5 of them, all girls, didn't know them personally) were freaking out at first. And I was getting into a fight with one about not letting me crack open our exit window in our room. And so after a few bursts of freaking out of running back and forth to see how much longer we had, I went back down the little hallway toward the room where everyone was and see that they are all moving slowly and just seeming like they don't care if they die. I remember asking "What are you guys doing?! Aren't we leaving!?" And two girls lazily plopped down on their beds and one said "No gonna catch some Z's." And at that point I was really freaking out thinking we were all going to drown to death. I started to think of finding a raft somewhere and then that's when I woke up from the dream. Possibly the weirdest dream I've had in a while.

in my dream I'm sailing a boat on calm water with my three kids. My daughter notices the boat sinking, I jump in the water to hold the boat up from sinking, I see the water exiting from a hole made to release excess water, the water is still calm but, while in the water, I feel scared, I can also feel my daughter is scared for me as well, as if I am her, I am in disbelief that I am in this situation, I'm doggy paddling toward shore, I just passed a huge mountain very close. I feel as if I were close enough I might scrape my legs against it. I awake from my dream before I reach seashore.

I just woke up from a dream that was like no other. I was on a ship, and there was everybody else in the world on it as well. There were many many rooms, and lots of slides for stairs. I was with my daughter, trying to find some place or a piece of furniture to stay afloat. The whole ship was sinking...and fast. As I looked outside i would see some big pieces that people found to survive . But I couldn't . My daughter was trying to find a place so fast that I would sometime loose sight of her. It was really scary. I was so scared to lose her. I was so afraid. Then when I read this article, I couldn't believe how true and how appropriate this dream was for me. I have had a terrible time maintaining my emotions. Even lost someone I really care about lately .

My drwam is that i was sailing across the ocean from one country to another (which ones are not defined) and one of the sailors says that he can hear the cracking of bones.

I can see underwater all the way down to the bottom and there is a sunken ship that have the bones of a large whale through it. The story is that the whale (understood to be Moby Dick) died when he rammed into the boat to sink ot, that he and the boat went down together. The bones still move as alive sometimes, making a cracking sound. I am also able to see the skeleton of one of the drowned sailors and he sings a song of how he got there, how he wants to get out and for others to beware the whale

In my situation, im an avid fisherman but when I experience these dreams I always turn the pump on to keep it from sinking, multiple times, and fix it so it doesn't happen again but there is always another instance that put it in a sinking mode again! Dont understand, not a repeat dream just same " worry", dont get it....

i have the same thing. it was very scary in my part because this involves my family. it began when we are still arranging our luggage and there's already an anxiety inside me. when we got into the ship, my mom was left in the room, i am wandering around and my sister was partying somewhere. suddenly, the ship sinks and idk why. i quickly look for my sister who doesnt know how to swim. i found her drowning in the pool of the ship and because i know how to swim, ive reached her and got her. then my mom got out of the cabin and followed us. that time, all i am thinking is how about our things. i got few things with me actually. my laptop, my phone, that's all. i am worried because the things that my mom have brought are important for our business matters. i asked my mom for that and she told me not to worry. then suddenly, we are asked to jump out of the ship and i was totally afraid because i dont trust my swimming skills in a veryy deep ocean. idk but we dont have life vests that time thus, it scares me a lot. until suddenly, i was surprised that we are already in the shore, safe and happy. i was thankful for that. i thought it was true but i was more thankful when i found out that it was just a dream. *sigh of relief*
