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.

Dream Boat Sinking
Dream Dictionary Boat Sinking, What it Means to Dream of your Boat Sinking

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 can’t afford it.

My husband and I were in a small boat, paddling across the bayou. As we reached the other side, I looked down and noticed the front end (where I was sitting) was going under the water. When I realized that the boat was sinking, I woke up.

I was on a large ship, I went down to the sea level to check out the waves crashing against the bow, it was very rough. Then the ship went straight down and turned upside down. I was still inside and not hurt, the boat turned back up to normal and capsized again.. I then woke up!

I have a dream and it happens to repeat 3x the dream was like this.

I am sailing with a ship in a placid water, very cool, calm, clear blue water ocean as the ship was sailing it made a fast detour to the left. with that detour the ship in my dream sink. and i was left swimming to save myself from drowning. and a little boat i saw on my right that i need to reach so i will survive. there were also some others with me in the ship but are not clear to me who they are maybe because i was a passenger of the ship.

I was on a bigger boat, a kind of transfer boat, it was heavily raining and massive waves, I was somewhat in charge of the boat but not fully, I kept on telling the other people on the boat that we had to dock somewhere and get off (it was not open water). All of a sudden the wave took the front of the boat and we were swollowed by it. Water came everywhere and my mum was with me, it all went really quick and I didn't have a chance to plan out how to get off the boat, my first thought was to crack the large window with one of those security hammers which they have on buses, but I couldn't find any. We where sinking really quickly and then I woke up.

I just dreamed las Night that I was on a cruise ship with my spouse and other family members. It was dinner time, so we were trying to find a table with a nice view, however the crowd was a bit out of control and we ended up getting separated. I am running around with my spouse still looking for a table. As we looks around at the top deck, I felt the ship begin to tilt as the waves crashed into the side. I suddenly felt panic as I realized that the ship was continuing to tilt into the ocean. I finally yelled at my spouse, telling him that we had to jump off before the ship took us under. I grabbed his hand and we jumped off swimming away as fast as we could. When I turned around the ship was upside down in the water.

I just woke up from a nightmare. I had an argument with a girl in my town. As I walked into house, I noticed I was on a swirling cruise ship spinning round and round. I can picture the water gleaming and beautiful but the boat was spinning, I noticed its depth was getting deeper.. So I ran inside to tell mum dad and grabbed my niece who's a toddler.. I then woke up crying.. To realise I haven't dreamt in over a year.... Confused but the
Explanation helps and relates to me in someway

yeah, i had this dream last night were i was in a marina and someone was flying around with a kind of sail///kite boat. like a seagull. i mean this guy could tack. anyhow after he made an impossible stall infront of me. hovering in the air and took off.. i watched in horror as my boat.. it is my boat (in reality(.. a wood sloop) nosed up and sank.

now, it was calm.. mainly, the juxtaposition of the kite sailer guy paints a picture for me. // in reality, i'm actually concerned about my boat sinking. at the dock. it's been raining a lot. anyhow, maybe a lucky dream in that case.

Been trying to search for the meaning of this dream but no luck. I have dreams about me always swimming away from the Battleship Arizona in Pearl Harbor. I'm always swimming for my life. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Really strange how this dream occurred. It wasn't like the ship fully sunk or the fact I could even sink in this area. I was in a harbor that was on this old ship from the 18 to 19 hundreds. I was one of the staff and when the ship started to sink we had to save all the artwork that was on the ship and while we're saving all the artwork or making sure all the people get off the ship and there was a part where there was this woman with a baby but for some reason she didn't want to get caught with the baby while she was trying to escape the ship. So she walked up and handed the baby to me and other people on the ship and she walked away. We continue to try to figure out what we're going to do with the baby and get all the artwork out and out of nowhere we started to get stuck in the ship. Some guy, I don't even recognize him, others I recognize are people I've seen at places to shop and are on TV, he's part of some kind of law enforcement, Undercover, seems like he's from the new era rather than the 18 and 19 hundreds and he saves the people that are trapped on the ship. So as the ship stops sinking everyone feels more relieved that we have more time to save the artwork and things on the ship it goes back to the scene with the baby. I guess it's some point one of our staff had lost her baby and she was talking about nursing her baby and one of my staff brings up the baby that the woman left gives it to her the woman starts to nurse the child and just walked away acting like a child's her own we go back to grabbing more artwork and I wake up.

Yesterday I had a dream of a mast on the water. I got in another boat and hide as some enemies are coming. The boat sailed past a huge ship. And the water is very calm. Last night, I dreamed of being out in the sea with nothing but a circle wood and the water is calm also.

Reoccurring nightmares 2016-08-24 19:03:33
I had a dream I was on a huge cruise ship with my best friend, the ship suddenly tipped and like the titanic was all the way in the air, then it would flip and go the other direction. I held on to a bar and was constantly grabbing my best freinds and making sure she didn't fall into the water with everyone else. Eventually the ship sank and I was banging on the windows to get out. The window broke and I got out but she wants with me. So I went back into it to find her and the ship started turning all over again. This was one of those dreams where you wake up in sweats and then go back asleep to have the same dream all over again, except this time you have more control over it. In which the second time I made sure to pull her out of the ship with me. Then I went back under to break more Windows and get more people out.
I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean, but I'm having tons of nightmares,

I usually don't remember my dreams , only the once that feels so close/ real... am in strong contact with these dreams yet i can't translate them. What do they really indicate. I had a dream today. I appeared on a shore infront of a small old fishing boat, the boat was made of wood for around 3/4 ppl. There was a man on the boat and he started talking to me. Suddenly the boat started sinking very fast. I wasn't much worried because he was so close to the shore. But he started worrying and flipping out yelling ' Noo the children! He had children on the boat... He's boat sinked in a blink of an eye. I didn't really realized what was happening. I see him go underwater and bring up a wooden boat shaped box with babies in it....trowing it up to the the wooden dock am standing on. I immediately jump to it and pick up the children, as many as i can. When i pick up the children in my arms the whole atmosphere changes, is very cold, thers fog,cold wind blows and everything looks winter blue. The place suddenly feels remebered somehow and i need to get in somewhere indor, to rescue these children/BABIES in my arms and the ones still in that box. '... & i wake up

I just had a dream that I was standing in a marina with my family, I can't remember whether the water was choppy or not, I then caught out of the corner of my eye a massive boat sinking not far from us, I saw the back of the boat bobbing in the water before it went down. then hundreds of people came running to help save the people that were trapped on the boat.

I just had a dream I was on a large boat, a baylinner-mixed with a cruise ship. The sky was blue, the boat was new, and I looked out the windows to see large rising tsunami-like waves rising like a big wall. I yelled "everybody hold on" and watched as the wall of wave hit the boat and the boat started flipping upside down, "full turtle" as they say. I hit the boat's side wall and slid to the ceiling as I watched the boat turn and everything from the floor start falling to the ceiling. Within a minute the water was up to our necks. I looked down and I saw a dead man at the bottom of the water, stuck in a corner of the ship. I heard a mayday call which someone said, "the boat has been overturned for 3 minutes" I looked out the window and I could still see the blue sky. I looked at all of the windows and thought about breaking one, but I didnt because I knew the water would rush in immediately and leave everyone else but a minute to react,which would mean more people would die, i really wanted to just break the window and escape but I did not. Then I woke up.

I dreamed about going to the cruise trip and stop by a corn field, and seeing other passages were picking corn, and try to remind them do not do so, it is not moral, and they don't listen to my suggestion, than I went back to cruise ship and can not find my own seat back, and end up sit in the middle of the row, and suddenly I felt water splash, the next minutes, I was sinking, and I was scared and feel like this is this, I guess I will die at age of 40, but I don't want to die, I think about my parents, and my family, so I keep swim up and try to get out the water, I successfully get out of the water, and came to a small village in now where, the background looks like in eourpean village, it was sometimes in the evening, I asked one of the store if I can borrow phone to call my parents to tell them I am still alive, the father and the son in the store were very nice to me, and I was able to call, and tell them I was safe, and than I was up

I keep having a re-occurring dream. I'm on my old coast guard ship rough seas storming I'm trying to find something or help. If I'm in the ship down below we always hit something and I can never get out and I drown. If I'm topside we take a rouge wave, start to list and I of course go overboard another rouge wave and the ship rolls ontop of me or sometimes I go off the bow and the ship runs me over. Of course result is drowning. It's absolutely horrid every time but these descriptions don't tell me what all that means. Guess I'll never know but these dreams s*ck *ss. . .

I keep having a weird dream, it's really odd, but I keep having this dream where I am on a pirate ship with a few pirates and my best friend that moved away but we still talk every day on the phone. We have food, but not that much. The food that we have in my dream is odd; a bag of meats and bread, and a jug of orange juice. It doesn't make any sense but that's what we had. I seem to know that the ship is going to sink so I, and the others, build a small raft. When the ship does sink, the food sinks to the bottom of the ocean. But in my dream I can see the bottom and the ocean isn't that deep so me and my friend that moved away swim to the bottom and bring the food back to the top, and we put it on the raft. Everyone could fit on the raft but I couldn't. It's odd, because, whenever there is something in my dreams where everyone else can fit, like a room or a couch for example, I never can fit. I need this all explained! I keep having dreams similar to it and it's really weird!
