Dream interpretation Drowning

When you see images of some being drowning, or feel the water closing in on you, it can certainly feel very upsetting. Before you decide this is a dream based on emotions or some other non-tangible factor, you might want to make sure the dream is not rooted in physical reality. Among other things, being hungry, or something as simple as a blanket or sheet slipping over your face and nose can induce this type of dream. Once you are certain that the dream does not have a physical basis, you can look to other modes of interpretation.

General Dream Meaning: Drowning

Drowning can easily symbolize drowning in debt, social obligation, or other areas in which you are "over your head". In particular, if you dream of someone else drowning, the odds increase that the dream represents a situation beyond your control. If the drowning is preceded by sinking, then you can consider this a magnification of the theme "overwhelmed".

While many feel this dream tends to be related to emotional issues, it can also represent issues or thoughts from your past that you have been trying to suppress. Oddly enough, if you dream of dying in a dream, it may mean that you are about to experience a rebirth or regeneration. Fortunately, if you survive the drowning event, it may indicate new beginnings, but you will have to overcome a difficult situation.

How Dream Symbol Drowning May Fit in Your Life

Even though a dream of drowning may leave you feeling overwhelmed and shaken, you can still use it to your advantage. At the very least, if you have been trying to suppress your insecurities, this dream will give you an opportunity to confront all of the problems that have been building up in your life. You may even be surprised to find that these dreams will serve as an indicator that a once impossible path may now be open to you. No matter whether you are unable to cope with stress at work or at home, this dream can give you the necessary space to explore your feelings, and perhaps find a way out.

A Sample Dream, Drowning Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream where you were swimming in a beautiful lake. Suddenly, you develop a cramp and begin sinking into the water. Your friends are sitting on the bank of the lake, chatting and enjoying the weather. Frantically, you try to wave your hands and alert them that you need help. As your arms become tired, you slowly feel water creeping up to your chin, and finally over your head. Within a few seconds, you see a beautiful blue light and awaken in a field of beautiful flowers. One of your co-workers, dressed in silky garments offers you some food and wine. While you are eating the meal, you find yourself wondering why you were ever afraid of drowning to begin with.

In this dream, you should start off by understanding that you most likely feel overwhelmed by some type of relationship. Even though you call out and ask your friends to help you, their lack of response indicates that people around you are not aware of your feelings. The drowning event itself can be seen as the point at which you succumb to all of the stress and finally let go of it. Since you awaken in a beautiful place, you can conclude that your life will be better once you confront the situation. Awakening to helpful co-worker may indicate that you will find new levels of happiness in your career once you are no longer torn between it and other aspects of your life.

I had a dream that I was with all my friends at one place all at once, people I've been seeing before was there and my long term ex's brother also. I'm unsure if this has anything too do with the drowning part but I got back seeing someone I was seeing before in this dream it was actually the person I had lost my virginity too and my ex's brother had a chat with me after and said it was ok now and I cried and apologised that I didn't love his brother the way he had loved me. I then was at a heavily flowing pond of some sort with my two girl friends, I fell in and the water was like sea water hitting me around and I couldn't swim up as much as I tried it was like I then came out of my body but I was still alive and drowning but standing out of my body I seen my friend save me. When I came out of the water I watched myself face bruised and bleeding and I cried looking at myself and I walked over and we smiled at each other and I hugged her so lovingly as If I wanted too tell her I'm here for her. We were both the same person but we cried and hugged it was hard too explain. I then was just me again the person who was drowning still bruised and bloody from the nose. I looked over at all my friends etc who were all talking and I remember wanting too saying bye and hugging them as if I wasn't going too see them again for a good while like I wanted too say goodbye too everyone. It felt sad but it was like a relief sort of cry. I don't know what too think after having this dream its a hard one for me and id really like too know what it means can anyone help me?

I had a dream about my teacher kidnapping me and my sister. I told my sister to call our father but she wouldn't. During the car ride, there was creepy people. During the red light, the person next to us had red glowing eyes. It was frightening. During the second stop light, a random man was raping a baby! I couldn't open the door because it had the baby lock thing. I was banging on the window yelling at the man to stop! Then I remember everything disappearing. My sister and I ended up on a cement that was in the middle of no where. On the left there was a big ocean. And, on the right was sewer. My sister told me the safest way is fhe sewer. Remember, I can't swim in real life. When we were half way in the sewer we came a across the deep end... My sister waste no time but jumped in, but before she jumped in she said, "Be careful. We're almost home." That made me panick and jumped in but I was drowning! I immediately woke up. What does it mean? I can't stop thinking about this dream.

I just woke up half an hour back from a drowning dreams and it has left me confused. I am with few friends at a lake with clear water, when one of my friend spots few bags and trolleys in the water which of clear to see. My friend dives in to get them. Just when i spotted few many other things just next to a small land in middle of the lake. I dived in from the cruise which was very high. I think that made me go very deep into water. After a while i could not myself from going deeper. I reached a dark muddy place. I could not see anything. I tried swimming around but wondered if im going in the right direction. Just then my body settled down on weeds and mud, and i could not move my body. I still had breath but panic got me and i was out of breath. I wondered if anyone can see me from above and looked up but i could only see darkness with very few sparks of sun light. I guess i had gone too deep away from the clear water. Just then i woke up chocking. I am confused and emotionally disturbed. I donno what this means. I really wanna know. Someone please?

Beware of actually drowning in dream.I ended up with heart attack.I had a job, that was physically and mentally draining.I went to visit family for xmas.to cope with my royally dysfunctional family, me and my brother went for a hike. A famiy member was involved in near fatal car accident.  :ups: I had a way of coping with life without drugs. This way was not available,because of holiday hours. I had a dream of jumping into a pool and yelling. After reaching bottom of pool I was struggling to siwm to surface. I was trying to reach surface but couldnt hold breath any longer and swollowed water. I woke up.  :bad: and had whooping cough. I made my way back to the city where my job was. I had to work Jan 1st. I worked and someone and someone told me I was going to be fired for poor peformance. i should have left early to get to place that i could deal with stress.Due to holiday hours I couldnt get there. I drove home. I had sweats in beds
it has been 27 days later and I have been in bed ridden. I hope I find a god of my own undestanding soon.

I was having an odd dream I can't really remember most of it other than wondering around but I remember there where these people swimming in a very skinny pool and it would bring you around and around . so you got a few people swimming in it and there is this one guy who starts struggling because he had to turn his face and he tried. then it got worse and he was drowning saying" someone save my life please" while turning a different color,it also seems as if he was being pulled down by something though.after that he may have gotten electrocuted because I saw his body flashing and exploded. Not sure what this means because it wasn't me but if I get an answer ud appreciate it.
