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 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.

Can someone tell me what my dream means please I have it almost every night the same one. I am driving and I see my husband in another woman's car driving it and I follow them and he makes a sharp turn to get away from me. I keep going forward because I was on errand for work and some reason needed to just get back there. I am crying and just feeling broken. Then about a mile down I run off the road and my truck flips into some water and I start to sink I can't get out of truck. I bang on the windows honk the horn. I am stuck in my seatbelt. I look up and look out the front window I see him and this chick he cheated on me with (in real life too) starring at me watching me. I always wake up right before I die. Can't breathe coughing crying. It has happened now for almost a year. Please tell me how I can stop it. If I can.

I dreamt that I was in a car with my friends dad and a ghost put us in a lake while we were still in the car. As the car was sinking with us inside, I seen a brick wall in front of the car as we were sinking. It felt as if the brick wall never ended it just kept going down. When we reached the bottom, I wanted to open the door and swim up to the surface but my friends dad insisted we stayed in the car to eventually die. I sat for a second relizing if I opened the car door my friends father would drown. So I sat in the car with him, sacrificing my life, while the oxygen slowly ran out. Then I woke up. What's that mean?

I dreamed a situation in which I saw many dead drown people in sea. They all looked pale and didn't have cloths on. The dead bodies were forming a tower that seemed to root at the bottom of the sea which I couldn't sea because the water from the sea was dirty. On top of the tower of dead bodies was a huge industrial ship, which I saw from another ship.

Dream: I see three men holding down the lid to a very large barrel and in the barrel is a Caucasian man in his early 20's wearing only white underwear. The barrel is full of water and I hear him ask me to help him. I see everything with clarity. I can feel the water on my face as I push my face thru the side of the barrel to see the young man closer. He looks at me and appears to be startled at my presence but continues to ask for help. I realize I'm only dreaming and start to wake myself up. As I wake I hear the young man call out "help me!"for the last time.
