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've had a recurring dream where I'm walking in a building, and suddenly, it fills with water. So I hold my breathe for what seems like a long time. Finally it gets to be unbearable, so I look for a room that wasn't filled completely, so I struggle to open the doors, but while I'm pulling the doors open, I black out. Then I wake up gasping for air.

thats very similiar to a dream i had as a 4 year old child where this character from the kids show Beetleborgs, name (Flabber) pulls me off of my bed (waking into a dream) and into a full bathtub of water, he begins to hold me down, Im facing looking up at him underneath the water, air bubbles escaping me. That dream was just so powerful, I couldnt possibly forget it. But thankfully I didnt die either, I awoke after a few seconds of being held underwater.

I keep dreaming that my son is drowning. Sometimes I can save him, and other times I cannot. Reading this makes since of it all. My son was diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder a year ago, and it is going to be a long hard life for him, as well as me who has to care for him. The dream represents my being overwhelmed with the fact that I cannot save him from this fate.  :(

I had a dream last night that i was in an old timey school. I wanna say it was a girls home. There was a lake behind the school and a girl was out there i went to see what she was doing and she jumped into the water, (which in the dream was frozen over, it was cold outside) then out of the corner of my eye i saw black hair underneath the water. The other girl came up to the surface and saw what i saw then jumped back into the water to save her, but the girl that was underwater was dead when the other girl came back up then in my dream ahe grabbed my wrist which startled me because ahe was supposed to be dead. I woke up gasping fir air and was confused and sweaty and now i have a bruise on my wrist where in my dream she grabbed it.

I had a dream last night that I was swimming next to a huge underwater city (for creative purposes, just think of Atlantis). Then there is a massive explosion in one of the really important buildings (I knew it was important) and I got sucked into the explosion and then drowned and died... Weird I know, but I didn't wake up from the dream either. I'm really concerned.
